A SOCIAL AFFAIR
AT PYTHIAN HALL
On last Monday night the local
lodge of Knights of Pythias had
a very interesting and well at
tended meeting. It had been
previously announced that there
would be refreshments served
and cigars passed around and
this induced quite a number of
stay-at-homes to turn out.
The real intention of the gath
ering was to present our grand
Chancellor Commander, P. F.
Chappell with a small token of
the esteem in which his subordi
nate lodge held him. and to show
the appreciation of the lodge on
account of his having been pro
moted to the exalted office of
Grand Chancellor Commander of
the Domain.
The presentation speech was
made by Keeper of Record and
Seal, R. P. Hamby, inj a
very appropriate talk, recalling
the many virtues of Bro. Chap
pell as a man snd a Pythian.
Brother Chappell accepted the
gift, which was a beautiful
charm emblematic of the order,
in a few well chosen words,
which clearly showed that it was
a complete surprise as well as
highly appreciated.
The lodge then addjourned,
and partook of the splendid
lunch that was prepared for
them which consisted of coffee,
sandwiches, ice cream and cake.
A most delightful hour was
spent.
