D., to The Pythian Record says: have adopted a social feature in our lodge that is still in its club- room where all members can spend an evening in a quiet, comfortable way. The room for such purpose is under the con- trol of the outer guard during our ses sions." The grand lodge of Ohio levies a per capita tax of fifty cents per annum upon its members. Within one month after the close of the grand lodge session dispensations were issued for seven new lodges. Some of the lodges are having a bard pull to recover from the immense strain made upon their treasury by la grippe last fall and winter. The least or minimum fee as charter members in organizing a Knights of Pythias lodge in Iowa is 510 for each petitioner. No lodge can be legally instructed where a less amount is collected from each. Indiana gained last year and now has a membership of 17.987. There are 1.700 Pythian Knights in Kan- sas City, and thirteen lodges. Royal Arcannm- The Royal Arcanum will probably call fifteen assessments this year, against thir- teen in 1889.

There was the great duke of Wellington, and the Kreat Sumersof the time of Will iani of Orange, and Henry of Xavarrcand scores cf other French and English heroeni and statesmen. And in our country it is not recorded that Alexander Hamilton lost political prestige by his remarkable confession, while two of the great senators who supported President Grant might equally be .ted.
