A poet dreamed he dwelt in marble halls, but that isn't much of an aspiration in this comitry, says tho Sun.

E. Jlerrimo,!!, J. P. Loring, E; H. Kavan.igh, A. S. Pinkorton and A. T. Pinkorton, G. .G., have returned from Topeka and report that tho session was a very iraportant ono. Tho Patriarchs Mili-t.aiit, as is well Itnown, is semi-military, and jjs governed iWth somewliat of stxict-ness as to discipline. It is agreed among those conversant mth militarj' matters that Cap't.-Gon. Ellis, who stood in line of promotion to the command of tho Militant forces under the original organization of that body, by reason of subsequent legislation of the Sovereign Grand Lodge was premature, at least, in assuming command Sept. ti ult. An interesting question might have arisen had ho. announced himself tho lieutenaiit-genoral on Sept. 20 instead of on tho 5th, as the term for which Gen. Underwood was elected by tho grand body expired on that date. In assuming command tho question of insubordination arose, and Gen. Ellis was !'roliove(l of his command and ordered to report to tho Sovoroign Grand Lodge," imdor technically an arrest. This deprived him of remaining in line of promotion, and resulted in an election for the oflioo. Both Gen, UndorsTOod and Ellis wore placed in nomination for � the position, and Gon. Underwood was re-elected to the command oi: tho Patriarchs Militant. This will probably end the matter, as practically the grand body settled it, and Gon. Underwood does not seom disposed to press it further. The national convention of the .D.augh-ters of Kebokah was not continued, and as such rt body they will not moot again. Their legislation must oomo - through State conventions, which can refer all matters to State grand lodges. If the desired legislation seems practical, and tho State grand body cannot grant it it may instruct its representatives to the Sovereign Gr.and Lodge to propose it in that body. ' In other words, tho Daughters of Robekali have representation in all grand bodies, the same as the subordinate lodges and. encampments have, no'moto and no less, v. � . i A loan of 83000 was made tb tho Militant headquarters. This was necessitated hy reason of moneys due not being forwarded. It is reported that some ifOOOO ii m- process of collection, but which is not immediately available for use at headquarters. This is only part of the money which had heretofore been turned into the Sovereign Grand Lodge troasiu-y from the Militant organiza^ tion. Subordinate lodgos can, provided the state grand jurisdiotion so autlidrizes, sot aside five per oont. of its receipts as a contingent fimd. A great m.atiy of the subordinates have been using lodge funds for purposes not considered exactly legal, such as paying for floral offerings to a deceased member, or a collation at tho Installation of officers. ' A ^roat many of Grand SIro Unoerwood's decisions wero . modified; several of them were based on the view ho took of the Mexico and Illinois cases. The grand sire's actions in both these oases wore overruled and conBoquently all decisions founded on the law as applied to those jurlsdiotdons wero neoessarily found defective. In the matter of the two Now York State cantons, Nos. 80 and 31, the action of tho grand sire was approved. _ These cantons wore named after two prominent politicians of the State, and political influence, it was claimed, gained thereby. These cantons wero ordered to drop those names, and a law was passed at the last session of tho Sovereign Grand Lodge declaring that hereafter no canton shall bo named after n living person. A oominittee of three is to be appointed on the revision of tho P. M. ritual, by Grand ,Sire Busboe, which is to report at the next session. Tho Grand Ropresontatlves of Missouri invited tho Sovereign Grand Lodge to convene its next session lu the city of St. Louis, whioli was accepted. The oommand of tho 1st Eeglment, P. M., has been turned over to Mjij. Jolm E. Palmer, 1st Battalion, and it will take the O.OG train for AVoroester on Oct, 8. Grand Canton Bidgeley, 2, of Portland, 76 men, ^ri^ arrive in Boston on "Wednesday morning, bo received by a committee from Shawmut Canton, breakfast at the Quinov House, and then ho welcomed by MaJ. J. E. Palmer at headquarters. Maiden Lodge will initiate several candl-on Tuesday evening. AVinnissimmet Lodge of Chelsea will initiate two on-tho same evening. Samarit.an Encampment will exemplify the royal purple degree on Thursday evening. Bunker Hill Enoampraent of Chorlestown cordially invites all patriarchs of other encanipments to join with them in celebrating tho laying of the corner-stone of tho Odd Follows' Home in Worcester next Wednesday. _ Ancient Order of United Workmen. On Monday evening there gathered at the American House 124 master workmen and deputies representing 07 lodges. The meeting was full of enthusiasm, and after short spoeohes each m sister workman pledged his lodge to make ono or more additions to their numbers between this date and tho 1st day of January, 1891. Tho pledges varied in number from throe to fifty. Tho whole number was 1278. On Sept. 30, wlien tho grand recorder closed his accounts for that month, a draft had been drawn to pay the benefits m oveiw kuo^T ease of death, and a balance re-mahiod to tho credit of tho beneficiary fund amounting to SIB.2D0. . There wero hut five deaths in the order in August, and up to Oct. 2 only four deaths have beoii reported as oooiirring in September. Tho month of October bids fair to he a pretty busy month with the Grand Lodge oflicers. On the 7th there will bo a "convocation" at Doarhorn; on the 8th, a public meeting under the auspices of Kox-hury Lodge, and a convocation of tlie Khodo IsUind lodges at Providence; on tho 13th tliera will be a public meeting at Hopldnton and one at FitchbiU'B; on tho 14th or 15th, at Weston; on the 10th, a convocation ni Temple Lodge; on tho 2lBt, ono at Molrose witli Garfield Lodpo; on tho 22d, ono at Lowell with Lowell Lodge; on the 2,Sd, a gathering of the neigliboriug lodges at Waltham; on tlie 27tb, a meeting at Inman Lodge, Cambridgeport.

CHiLDRES^'S Wotable Period When Puritan Higor Was Somewhat Relaxed. Tho practice of seating a congregation in tho meoting-hotiao according to each member's social status waa almost: universally ab.andonod hotoro the revolutionary war. Tho cataloguing of students, however, ao cording to social condition, was not stopped at Yale College .until 1708, nor at Harvard until 1773. Not only was social distinctitm loss sharp, but tlio rigor of riuritan manners was soniewliii.t relaxed. Dancing was now tiuight occasionally. Ave read of a "drum or rout" in Boston, wlilch broke into the Sabbath at 2 a. m., and of a wedding dance at Norwich, in the course of whicli wei'O performed- no fewer than 93 jig's, 63 contra dances, 45 minuets and 17 hornpiiios. Such long dances counterbalanced the long sermons. Among other entertainments we hear of tripe suppers and "turtle frolicks," the latter especially in Newport. Even plays wero acted at times in Boston, the actors being chiefly British suhordinato officers, but in 1750 the General Court prohibited all sucli performances. BlToa parties wero gradually becoming com. mon. At first each dame had to carry lior own cup, saucer and .spoon, and husb.Tiuls grumbled nt the.investment of tlio "enormous sums of 30 or 40 shillings in tea eqtd-paftes." Amoiuv the lov,-er classes tiie standards, neither of manners nor of morals, wero advancing. "Buudlhig" was extonsivelv practised in Connecticut and western Mas-saclnisetts. .Tou.ithaii Edtvards raised Jiis voice afrainst it. ^Marriages are still contracted at iirepos-lorously early years, the brides often being only 15 or 10 years old. Bhitiy incidents recorded by travellers reveal theuncouth-iieSK and ciiarficncs.s of rural iii.-niiierH. Mr. A\'(.>eden cites an amusing ease of love attiist si;;lit, AvhichoccarrodatHopkinton. N.

Boston: Dain-rell (t Uphiim. _' "The Soul of Pierre," by George Ohnet, differs from any work of this powerful novelist by its deeper expression of the conscience of society, for Ohnot, looking upcn tho nature and influence of the love that society accepts, turns backward to humble people to see what love really is, and what it should bo. And what ho sees Is plain, and has only few demands, but it gives the health and strength' that society is weakening for, and must have AVith this for a motive. Olinet iiigeiiiOHBly constructs a story of love exnerienoo that, by help of occult pliilo.'iophy, illustratoa this motive with groat force. The work is issued in holiday form, with art features in keeping with Its literary qualities. Tho origin.il illustrations by Eiuile Bayard aro reproduced in nearly 00 full p.ages. It is beautifully printed on extra paper, made for th's edltiou, and is bound in white vellum cloth. Kew Vorli: Oassell A Co, Boston; Estos & Laurlat. Tho 10 papers of Jessie Benton Fremont In "Far AVost Sketches," describe personal oxperionco of frontier life with tho author's father. Senator Benton, and her husband, Gon. Fremont.

They toll of a Christmas in Bouthorn California, camp life in Arizona, the giant trees, a frontier ball, au encounter with a grizzly bear .and of other detached reminiscences.

Euseuo Field's collection of poems, "A Little Book of AVeslern A'erse," will renew acquaintance ivith a number of popular cotiipo.^itions and introduce to others that are just as worthy of favor. The collection enables Mr. Field to present side by side the qualities i.f the varied work he lias undertaken, with a gain la appreciation of his power. It eoiisi.sts of paraphrases of old English forms, of whicli he is very fond, and of Latin or Horatiau. French and otlicr for:uK, dialect jioeii's of AVe.stern life and liuiiiorous .and serious .poems on .subjects ol social interest. It is stroni-ver in iiuinor,but its pathos is as easily moved and is of tne kind that most always accompanies genuine hiiinor: it blends sometimes witii hituior to mitke some briliiaiit stroke. EeUes of ye Olden Time Wero by no ., . '.Means Prudes.. .,.. In 1752, accordmg to Woeden's History, tho brethren at Newbury disoipliuod a ohm'ch mombor for refusing commtmion "for no. other reason than because tho pastor wears a wig." The comploto wardrobe of a gentlernan is described in the inventory oE Col. Job Vassall of Cambridge. Ho lind many stuts; velvet coats with gold lace, flowered silk coats, scarlet coats with brooches to match; white-ribbed stookings, lace hats, a variety of arms, with a watch, were tho necessary parts of a gentleman's equiimieiit. Gold watches are often recorded. Tho dross of the ordinary solid citizen was similar, except that tho gold lace was omitted. A Norwich, Conn., dame had gowns of striped and of jdaid .stiiff, of silk cropo, of blue camlet, scarlet and blue cloaks, a satin flowered mantle; hoods of all sorts, including velvet; caps and aprons in groat number; a silver girdle and a blue one. In jewelry, witit tho inevitable rings, were a gold neoklaco and locket, gold sleovo buttons, sliver "hair peg" and coat clasps.. After 1763 there was a slight reaction towfi.rd qobriety In men's dress, tho substantial cloth coat with high collar coming in; but the ladles moved In tho opposito direction, arraying themsolves in more costly and elaborate apparol. The belles at tachod lonnr trains to their gowns of ricli brocade; the skirt, open in front, wiii trimniod, .and .soniotimos thoro was an em broidcrod stomacher. In w.alldng they throw their trains ovoi the arm, displaying dainty silk stockings and sharp-toe dslippors,ofton of emhroidorod satin and with high heels; out of doors clog.s wero added. Old ladies had powns ol brocade, but in quiet colors; a moo, long handkerchief and apron, a close cap of linen or lawn odgod with lace, black mittens, and a hood of velvet or of silk. Sometimes a nello's hair would be dressed over a silk oushion stuffed with wool. As late as 1775 parasols or umbroHas wore "unknown or rare" in Norwich, Conn., and immenso fans wore carried instead of sunshades. But "umbrillocs" having frames of mahogany wero made and used ml Boston in 1703. A Pew of the Maay --FOK- MONDAY, , OCT. 6.
