The public installation of the offi cers of Mesa Lodge No. 14, I. O. O. F took place at Old Fell >ws Hall last. Saturday night. There were over three hundred people in attendance including the families of the members and invited guests. About one d >zen Odd Fellows of Phoenix were present as well as three or four from Tempe. District Deputy Grand Master W. D. Morton was the installing officer and was assisted by Bro. 3cotfc, of Plioeni x as Grand Warden, Rro. N. A. Morford, as Grand Secretaiy, Bro. Barr, as Grand Treasurer and Bro. McGinnis, as Grand Marshal. The following officers were installed: Noble Gr ind, C. B. Lewis; Vice Grand, Frank Mil ler; Secretary, M. J. Forester; Treas urer, Harry Eichelberger; Warden, W. A. Burton; Conductor, Phil Mets; Outside Guardian, Chas. Winir; Inside Guardian, Chas. Starr; R ; srht Support er Noble Grand F.

H Brown; Left Scene* Sup porter, J. M. Smith; Chaplain, W. M. Newell. After the installation an address was delivered by Deputy Grand Mas ter N. A Morford, of Phoenix, which was full of interest and instruction, not only to Odd Fellows but to the visiting friends. Following this, a table was laid the entire length of the hall and a banquet prepared by the wives and daughters of the Odd Fal lows was spread uoon it and it i« unnecessary to say that it was sumptu ous and abundant and embraced verything that would tempt the taste of an epicure- One hundred and thirty-seven ladies sat down to the elegant collation and after thev and the male portion of the assemblage had feasted upon the superabundant delicacies and substantial, more than twelve baskets were left for distribu tion. For an hour the feast was kept up and the social featu-es were not neglected. A fine program had been prepared to follow this, but according to the wish of some that were present an adjournment was had to Social Hall where dancing commenced and waa kept up for an hour and a half. The universal verdict of all present was that the first installation of Mesa Lodge I. O. O. F. was a brilliant social success in every particular and wfitt not so«n be forgotten by those who participated in its enjoyments. Some time ago a man named Hankey, died in Philadelphia leaving a large fortune- Claim was made to this fortune by an adopted daughter of . Hankey, who was at the time of Hankey’s death penniless and in the care of a charitably disposed family in San Francisco. Her claim was hotly contested in the courts by Hankey’s relations, but the girl won in all the courts. This case has been of special interest to one of our citizens, Uncle Chas. E. Burton, from the fac* that he and the deceased Hankey were part ners during the years ’sl. ’52, ’53 and '54, in California and Oregon and dur ing this time shared the hardships which the argonauts were.calltd upon to undergo. Mr. T E. Flannigan, of this place, now attending the Law School of the college at Valparaiso, Indiana, is winning both honors and laurels by his work. On entering he passed m a most satisfactory manner all the ex aminations and secured admittance into the senior class> Recently the Dean of the Law School publicly complimented him upon his ability to grasp and maintain law; also upon his possession of a more extended and thorough knowledge of law than any other member of the school. The members of the Law School have shown their appreciation of his genius by bestowing upon him the honor of the Presidency of the Law Literary Society. ’ Wellington Richens, a Sunday school normal student at the Brigham ! Young Academy from Mesa, Arizona, received from his home by express * this morning a box of fruit freshly 1 j picked from the trees, consisting o ’ I figs. peaches, o’ives, peppers, and iiiier varieties. Samples oi the foliage accompanied the fruit which wil 1 be pressed and placed in the B. Y. \. botanical cabinet.
