The prominent features of the oc casion were the eulogies pronounced uprn the two members of the order who had passed away during the present year, both of which were given by members who had been in timate associates of the dead during Hif.ny year of their lives, and wno loved them as brothers. Mr. Chas. O. Patier. who succeeded the subject of his address as president of the New York Store Mercantile Co., spoke as followe of Chas. E. Hessian. Brother Elks: It was a holy an I wholesome thot glit that prompt" I the originators and pici'ioters f 'he Society of the Benev.i1 nt ProteUive Order of Elks to incorporate inti their by-laws and regulations an a - tick which sets apart one day in each year to eulogize the life and character of those members who dur- ii.g the passing tear have gone on before to that home whence iio traveler returns: to bold up as' a shining example the many lovable traits of heart and rniml of the dec-eased for the Inspiration and stimu lation of thc.be wUo follow in their foots-tepH. It is with a sense of con-' serration and a feeling of deep pr tioi.nl grief that we come here today to pav a tribute of respect to the memory of Charlts E. Hessian, a man whom I have known all my life; a man with whom 1 nave spent so many long years in close and Inti iniite business relationships.
