Chicago.—Marching to the music of
forty-two bands and the almost equal ly melodious cheers of hundreds of thousands of their relatives, friends and admirers, some 50,000 Knights Templar took part August 9 in the greatest parade ever held by the or der. Their waving plumes and fine uniforms were fittingly set off by the beautiful decorations of the streets and buildings, and the scene was one that will not soon be forgotten by those who were fortunate enough to witness It. This magnificent parade was the climax, in a spectacular way, of the thirty-first triennial conclave of Knights Templar, which opened here on Sunday, Aug. 7. In accordance with the time honored custom of the grand encampment, the doings of the week began with divine service. Begin With Divine Service. The sir knights selected Orchestra hall for this purpose and entirely filled Acting Grand Master Melish. the body of that hall to listen to a permon on "Templarism" delivered by JRev. Dr. George H. MacAdam of Madi son, Wis., in the absence of Sir Knight George C. Rafter of Cheyenne, Wyo., very eminent grand prelate of the grand encampment. The music was Jn charge of the grand organist of the grand commandery of Illinois, the choir consisting of several male quar tets belonging to the order in this state. The Grand Encampment of the lUnited States marched to the hall es jcorted by sir knights of the various commanderies of Cook county, com manded by Benjamin S. Wilson, chair man of the escort committee. In many of the leading churches of the city special services were held which were attended by visiting knights and their families. Monday was devoted mainly to the receiving of the grand and subordinate commanderies and escorting them to their hotels. It is estimated that fully 100,000 visitors came with the knights and that about 300,000 other excur sionists have flocked to the city this week in consequence of the conclave. Of course every hotel was thronged and thousands of the visitors found quarters in private residences. On Monday evening all the local and visiting commanderies kept open house at their respective headquar ters, and many of the visitors found their way to the various amusement parks and the theaters. KNIGHTS TEMPLAR HOLD TRIENNIAL IN CHICAGO Great Conclave Presided Over by Acting Grand Master Melish—Wonderful Parade Through Elaborately Decorated Streets Is the Most Spectacular Feature. Parade of The Knights. The "grand parade" of Tuesday was the largest parade of Knights Templar ever held. The preparations were elaborate and Michigan boulevard was most elaborately decorated. The sir knights formed in line of march on the boulevard south of Thirty-first street, and signal to move was given by the guns of Battery B, I. N. G., the detachment for the purpose being composed of Knights Templar all of whom are members of the battery. The same detachment fired the salute to the grand master. Marching northward in Michigan boulevard, the parade passed, near Hubbard court, beneath an entrance arch built in the form of an ancient battlement with its towers and tur rets. This was intended to represent the entrance to the city, and as the coiumn passed under it, buglers sta tioned on its heights heralded the ap proach of each grand division. Next the knights came abreast of the first grand stand, one-half mile in length, and this needed no decora tions, for it was filled to its capacity mainly with ladies whose beautiful summer costumes made it like a vast garden. About 50,000 persons were in this immense stand, as at its center was a1 gorgeous throne on which sat the acting grand master, William 7 Bromwell Melish of Cincinnati, who became head of the order on the re cent death of Grand Master Henry W. Rugg of Providence, R. I. Mr. Melish will be regularly elected grand master before the close of the conclave. Just north of t\e Art Institute the parade passed before another review ing stand in which were Mayor Busse, the city council and the park commis sioners. Beautiful "Templar Way." At Washington street the marchers turned west to State, where they en tered on the "Templar Way." This stretch extended from Randolph to Van Buren street afid was made beau tiful by a handsome arch and massive Corinthian columns of pure white erected thirty-three feet apart on both sides of the street. Festoons of natur al laurel connected the columns, and the bright red cross and the shield aud coat of arms of the order were prominent in the scheme of decora tion. Moving south to Jackson boulevard, the knights again turned west, and near the federal building passed be fore yet another reviewing stand which accommodated Governor Deneen and his staff. Marching north on La Salle street, the parade passed be neath the grand commandery arch of pure white which spanned the street at the La Salle hotel, the headquarters of the grand commandery of Illinois. This was a beautiful structure de signed by one of Chicago's most fa mous sculptors. Upon its top stood the figures of mounted knights four teen feet high. At the new city hall on Washington street the parade was dismissed, after marching forty-three blocks. Care For the Marchers. Everything that could be thought of for the comfort of the paraders and the spectators was done by the local committees. In nearly every block along the line of march were station ed physicians who were also knights templar, with trained nurses and equipment for emergency cases. In addition, emergency hospitals to be kept open day and night during the conclave were established at many points in the center of the city, and at the West Side ball park which was selected as the place for the competi tive drills. Wednesday and Thursday were the days set apart for the drills for which handsome trophies are awarded, and band concerts, sight seeing and many receptions were on the program. Entrancing Scenes at Night. The scene in the streets at night was especially beautiful, for all the arches, festoons and columns of the decorative scheme were brilliantly Il luminated, and on State street, in ad dition to the "Templar Way," the mer chants had put up decorations that transformed the great shopping dis trict into a veritable fairly land. Undoubtedly the most spectacular feature of the night display was the wonderful electric set piece erected in Grant park on the lake front, re producing in colossal size the official emblem or badge of the conclave. It was 150 feet high and its 5,000 power- Grand Generalissimo MacArthur. ful electric lights of varied colora brilliantly illuminated all that part of the city. Much of the success of the conclave must be attributed to the efforts of John D. Cleveland, grand commander of Illinois and president of the tri ennial executive committee. Arthur MacArthur of Troy, N. Y., is the very eminent grand generalissimo of the grand encampment and W. Frank Pierce of San Francisco the grand captain general. Among the most noted of the visit ing masons from other lands are: The Right Hon. the Earl of Euston, pro grand master of the great priory of England and Wales the Lord Athlum ney, past great constable Thomae Fraser, great marshal R.

"Mr. Jones," said the senior partner in the wholesale dry goods house to the drummer who stood before him In the private office, "you have been with us for the past ten years." "Yes, sir." "And you ought to know the rules of the house. One of them is that no man of ours shall take a side line." "But I have none, sir." "But you have lately got married." "Yes but can you call that a side line, Mr. Jones?" "Technically, it may not be." "You needn't fear that having a wife is going to bring me in off a trip any sooner." "Oh, I don't. It is the fear that having a wife at home you'll want to stay out on the road altogether!" RAW ECZEMA ON HANDS "I had eczema on my hands for ten years. I had three good doctors but none of them did any good. I then used one box of Cuticura Ointment and three bottles of Cuticura Resolvent and was completely cured. My hands were raw all over, inside and out, and the eczema was spreading all over my body and limbs. Before 1 had used one bottle, together with the Cuticura Ointment, my sores were nearly healed over, and by the time I had used the third bottle, I was entirely well. To any one who has any skin or blood disease I would honestly ad vise them to fool with nothing else, but get Cuticura and get well. My hands have never given me the least bit of trouble up to now. "My daughter's hands this summer became perfectly raw with eczema. She could get nothing that would do them any good until she tried Cuti cura. She used Cuticura Resolvent and Cuticura Ointment and in two weeks they were entirely cured. I have used Cuticura for other members of my family and it always proved suc cessful. Mrs. M. E.
