Mokanna, the caldron which is de pendent to the grotto organization. Just three years ago, June 5, a group of Rock Island women inter ested in Masonry, founded the Daughters of Mokanna. The families of Amoo grotto were adverse to permitting the men to ! enjoy all the good fellowship, get i together meetings, smokers, and other events all to themselves, ana some women conceived the idea that as the grotto proved such a magnet to the men, an organiza tion of similar character should prove of the same benefit and in terest to the women. This idea spread rapidly -with the result that a grop of earnest wo men organized Amoo caldron. Daughters of Mokanna, taking their name from one of grotto's most ! mysterious characters. The ritual i was written by an author of note i and when the first ceremonial was ; staged, it proved such a surprise, j ' that the news was not long in j (spreading to other borders, so that I now three years later 16 cald I rons have been organized in this country. The supreme body of Daughters of Mokanna was organized under the laws of Illinois, Nov. 19. 1520. Mrs. L. R. Mace, Rock Island, was elected the first Supreme Mighty Chosen One, and through her ef forts the organization was broad ened. The last supreme meeting was held in Kansas City, and this year's convention will be in Bar City, Mich., in November. Mrs. Elizabeth Perkins, Shoppen agon caldron. Bay City. Mich., the present Supreme Mighty Chosen Gne, will be in Rock Island during the convention of the Veilel Pro phets, and will establish headquar ters in this city where she will in terview women and prophets inter ested in organizing caldrons in cit ies where there are no auxiliaries to the grotto. At this time' the supreme caldron hopes to gather material for the foundation of several more caldrons.
