I3ehrenclt9 PROPRIETOR OF PENNY STORE. a 5 THE LODGE CORNER, s Work. A lodge of any kind is just what ita members make It. The mass of mem bers, not the officers alone, make the public reputation of an order. If the members are all in earnest, active, en thusiastic workers, all deeply imbued with the great principles of their order, the lodge and order will surely make a good impression on the outside world; on the contrary, if the members are luko-warm, idle and careless, their ap pearanco will make the outside people believe the order does not amount to very much and they will stand aloof from it. Therefore let every individual member do his whole duty be active, be earnest, be enthusiastic in all the good work of the order, thus making a good impression upon all who are mem bers, and thereby ho will surely Invito and secure new members, thus increas ing the strength and elevating the Btandlng of his lodge and decreasing tho cost of his own protection. No good institution, however well founded in wisdom or design can bo sustained by a roll of idle and careless members. Work is always to bo done to keep an order up. Ever since the sword of an angel flashed between Adam and Eve and tho loved Eden they had lost, nothing great or good has ever been gained without labor. Labor is a divine law that will stand on nature's statute books till the end of time, and he who does not work, work contin uously and with intelligence, will never accomplish anything of advantage to himself or his fellowmen. Anchor and Shield. What is it that makes all those men who associate with women in societies superior to those who do not? What makes the woman who is accustomed and at ease in the lodge room and the society of men, superior to her sex in general? Solely because they aro in the habit of free, graceful, continued conversation with each other devibing means for the benetit of mankind. Womon in this way lose their frivolty, their faculties awaken, their delicacy unfolds their beauty. And the men lose their pedantic, rude, declamatory, or sullen manner. Their asperities are rubbed off, their better materials polished and brightened, and their richness like the gold, is wrought into finer workmanbhip by the fingers of women than it ever could be by those of men. The presence of women in the lodge room produces tho highest re sults. Exchange. One active, vigorous, heart-interest ed member is worth a score of inert, lot-well-enough alone members. The non-energetic, non-progresslvo ones are always in the rear; you will find them in tho rear everywhere; but the go forward kind always count in a society just as they count in the busy walks of life. Let us all get into the go forward class, and as the cold weather ap proaches let our energies unfold and our vigor gather strength, and its ef fects will bo felt In a renewed Interest in tho order, and an increase in its membership. Let us ask ourselves how many of us have proposed a mem der, and who has not. If you aro of the latter start out at onco to get your member. Canadian Workman. IT COSTS SOMETHING Take tho active worker out of any aphero of life, and where is the system? If tho citizen refused to take an Interest In politics, what would become of the state? Jf the church members refused to take an Interest in religion, what would become of the church? If tho members refused to take any part in the conduct of the society to which they belonged, what would become of tho fraternity? State, church and so ciety would drift Into absoluto imper ialism or confusing anarchy. A hand ful of men might corrupt them all. It Is the active worker, tho live member, who Is making your order grow and prosper. N. Dakota Workman. Society emblems, although generally used as embellishments, have their secret meaning. Brothers quickly de tect one another, tho mystic sign is given and friendship at once springs forth and bridges over the chasm of an introduction. The signs are generally the indication that a man is a true man, a law promoter and a factor in all that is upright, true and noble. That tho breast behind that shield upholds the law, society, tenets and belief of that order, that he is one that can be trust ed in an emergency and to whom an appeal can be made, knowing that a deaf ear will not bo turned to the dis tressed. N. F. P. A. Organization colors are at the pres. day pushed to tho front and occupy the majority of tho space upon nearly all emblems. When a picnic or any other special gathering takes place, the colors occupy a very conspicuous part In all decorations. Taking all the orders collectively of American origin and separating their colors it will be found that patriotism has crept into their makeup and tho red, white or bl ue exemplify additional truths in conjunction with liberty and Indepen dence. N. F. P. A. Let us try to make our Uvea like songs, brave, cheery, tender and true, that shall sing themselves Into other lives, and so help to lighten burdens and cares.

Wo are periodically confronted with an item in tho eolurans of our weekly home paper, tho grist of which is "Trade in your own town." That is right, that is just what wo all wish to do; but wo want right prices, prices that will come somewhere in lino with what wo have to buy with. Tho head of a family has just so many wants to supply and only just so much cash to cover tho outlay. No good manager buys rashly, but first ascertains just what they need, examines what tho home merchants display and compares prices with those of other firms and 99 out of every 100 will buy where they can make $10 go farthest; because his lovo and duty toward his family is greater than his love and duty toward his city. Competition is tho life of trade, as tho last fow weeks have demonstrated. A merchant who tied the price tags on his goods fifteen years ago must wake up to the fact that goods are selling cheaper these times, and if they wish to keep the home trade must burn up the old tags aud get some new ones. No one, no matter how much he loves his town is going to pay 20 cents per yard for an article he can get for considerably less elsewhere. As to business accommo dations a little exjKjrience which came under my notice will do to illustrate. A man buys an article for $30, pays $10 down and for the privilege of throe months time is allowed to pay $3 ad ditional as accumulated interest at 80 per cent. And then how astonishing and trade inviting it is on a cold, bleak winter evening to pick up your homo paper and read tho antique ad. that a certain firm's "spring" goods have ar rived. How can ono ever help snatch ing mufller and mittens, ulster and arctics, and rushing down town through the snowbanks to secure some bargains before tho rush. Wake up! It. II. E. CAKI) OF THANKS.

About 5J yeurs wo I begun to bo troubled with my stomach. It uradually grew worse, even under treatment, until it became dimcult for me to eat any kind of food with comfort. Tor the past five years 1 have been able to retain very little food of the simplest nature long enough to digest it. Seldom curing tbls time have 1 enjoyed sleep throughout the entire night and usually have been obliged to leave my bed In consequence of my stomach und nerve troubles. Aly bowels were very much relaxed, said to be due to Inflammation of the membrane of the intestines. I was treated by physicians and tried neurly every known remedy recommended for my troubles with no lasting benetit. and usually not even tempo rary relief. On the Mh day of January, V, I purchased a package of Drake's DyspepsiaCure and Nerve Restorer, and I wish every dyspeptic knew how much I have Improved from Its use. My food does not distress me as it did, and I have no trouole in retaining it. I sleep well and feel refreshed therefrom, and, although I have used only one package of the medicine, I can safely say that 1 am 75 per cent, better than I have been during the past 20 years.
