The latter are composed of the otilcers of tho sulwrdi-nate bodies or individual commanderies. As tho otilcers of each single body aro elected by the memb.'i s thereof, the grami encampment ia a purely representative organization In which every knight is interested. It consists of a grand master, whoso title is most eminent, deputy granii master, grand gon-eralissimo, grand captain general, grand prelate, senior grand warden, junior grand warden, grund treasurer, grand recorder, grand standard lieurer, grand sword bearer, grand warder, grand captain of the guard, each having the title (if very eminent, as olllcers; all the most eminent |>ast grand masters, past deputy grand masters, past grand generalissimos, and |iast grand captains general who have served their terms of olllce in the grand encamp-ne'it ; likewise the grand commanders, past grand commanders, deputy grand command is, grain! generalissimos and grand captains general of the state grand commanderies holding fealty to tha grand enmmpnieut, also tho tirsi, three officers of each subordinate commandery holding a Charter direct from the grand encampment. The grand encampment of tho United State» was organised on June1810. It Is invested with (wiwer to regulate the order in general, the state grand bodies reserving to themselves certain rights of local government. It Iia-S the power to charter individual commanderies of Knights Templar in districts where there Is no grand or state liody, and has su|x-i'vision over tho question of uniformity in action and regulation. The mem-liers elect the ulllcers, who serve th -« years, «neh olllce lieingoneof honor and without puy or emolument. BRIEF IllsTDKY OK THE KNIGHTHOOD. The "Iteiigious and Military Order oi Knights Templar" date» luick to the crusades. Although tbe present system dilfers entirely Croni the objects of (ho òrlginal Knight* Templar, still many, If not an, tbe ceremonies have I teen retained. Tbe original order, which was for tbe protection from tbe Sara-oensof pilgrims visiting the Holy City, ma founded by Baldwin II, king of Jerusalem, in the year 1118, Worn this date the order reckons; therefore the present Templar year ia A. O. 771. Huguee de Payens was tho first master of the order, and la regarded by manj as tbe founder. Men belonging to the noblest families of Europe became members of tbe order, and in 1128 tbe popes—for tbe Roman pontiff then recognised the Knight»— Issued rules and regulations, prepared ezprese-ly by St. Bernard, for its governance. De-spite persecution the order has existed to the present time, although its ostensible objects have been changed. Jaquea de Molay, the grand master of the order, which had then liecome wealthy, was martyred by Philip of France and Pope Clement, but before bii death named his successor. Since that time the list of grand mas l era haa not been broken. Under the protection of Freemasonry tbe secrets of the order have been preserved, and it Is considered an honor today to hold membership with tho Knights Templar. To become a member, tbe candidate must be a Royal Arcbllason, although there is not a vestige of Freemasonry in tbe ceremonies of the order. The emblems and banners show that the knighthood is based on Christianity, pure and simple, whllo Masonry is non-sectarian in its character. The banner of tho order is whito, on which is displayed a red cross, w i t ii the motto, "In hoe sig-no vinccs"—in this sign we conquer. Among the jewels is _ the Paschal *Lamb. FUJ.T. DRESS. Tho battle (lag of tho order is black and white. Both full and fatigue dress are worn by the Knights. Full dress consists of black frock coat, and ]>ants, baldric, sword, belt, cliaixmii, gauntlets and shoulder straps, with appropriate trimmings. For fatigue dresa the samo is worn, except that a cap with « red cross in front takes tha placo of the cha-pcuu; the baldric is dispensed with and glovee are worn Instead of gauntlets. So highly is tho order esteemed that tbe Prince of Wales, grand master of England, founded a few years ago the "Grand Cross of tho Temple," to which only grand masters, or those of equal rank, can be admitted to mem-liership. Mosa Eminent Sir John Q. A. Fellows, of Louisiana, whilo grand master of the United States, was admitted thereto. KTIIEXOTH OF THE KKIOHTLY ORDER. The estimated number of enrolled members attached to the "Religious and Military Order of Knights Templar" holding allegiance to the grand oncampment of tho United States Is about 75,000. Added to these may bo ni' iitioned fully one-third more of knighta errant: those who have taken tho vow of the order, but who are not now affiliated with any commandery. This would make a total of about 10i>,0()) Knights in this country alone, to say nothing of those belonging to the various preceptoriaB of Great Britain and the Dominion of Canada. Tho exact figures of the enrolled membership in tho United Stales \yill he collated by tho grand recorder of the grand encampment and presented to that body in an official report during the session.

During the year 1855 ho was chosen president of tho company, which position ho still retains, being acknowledged tho head of the profession in the civilized world." During the late civil war he raised, equipped and commanded the Thirty-seventh regiment of New York troops, and by bravery won the rank of brevet brigadier general of the United States army. Ho hail been captain of the fourth company of the Seventh regiment of the National Guard of tbe state of New York, and is a member of the Veteran association. His career as a Mason and Knighta Templar is honorable. ' Raised in Kane lodge of New York city in January, 180(1, in two years he became the worshipful master, which office ho held for three consoc-utive years, being again elected in 187ft His sorvico was rewarded by tho members with tokens in the shape of past master's jewel, a gold watch and chain, and an album containing engrossed complimentary resolutions. In 1870 he was chosen district deputy grand master, and the following year grand marshal of the grand lodge, which office he held during the great parade of 1875, which marked the dedication of tho Masonic temple JOHN CHILTON Î5EVERE '¿J Be Is One of the Mast Popalar '-J of the Manhattan Athletle Ctak.

His efforts in the construction of tho New York Masoniu temple, and nlso in aiding to clear it from debt, has made his name estimable in that branch of tho fraternity. Gen. Roome became a Knights Templar In Cœur do Lion commandery, No. 23, of New York, in 1800; was elected eminent commander In 1807, holding the rank and position until 1872, when he voluntarily retired.

In the year 1880 ho was elected very eminent grand generalissimo of that august body, and in 1883 very eminent deputy grand master. The appointment of tho Hon. Robert E. Withers, then grand master of Knights Templar, to be United States minister to China, threw the burden of tho higher office on Gen. Roome, and ho satisfactorily performed all the duties by virtueof the grand master's general order No. 3, dated May 20, 1885. At the triennial conclave, held hi St. Louis iu ISSO, Gen.

I Playa* WAUGIl. DINOMA.N. master of Knights Templar in the United States—the high office which he now holds. Gen. Roome was also invested with the thirty-third degree in tho Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, in which he has taken a great interest, and he became a meinlier of tho supreme council of the northern jurisdiction. •Rev. Sir John G cera were elected Webster died since the offl King l.iulwl£ and Wagner. I was once walking with a friend, n native of Munich, through one of the leading thoroughfares of that beautiful city, when he suddenly stnpjied, and pointed to a house which, olthough not a largo one, was of very comfortable proportions and was surrounded by a garden, and had overy appearance of elegance. "In that house," said he, "lived the ono man who was responsible for tho eccentricities of our poor demented and now deceased king It was the homo of Richard Wagner." 1 have recently read a story which is now going t ho rounds, told by a person who claims to have been in tho body guard of the unfortunate King Ludwig.of Bavaria, which says that the late king was not insane, and that the cause of all the trouble of the much-to-bc-pitied monarch was duo to llismarck and to a woman. How true I his may bo, I know not. Richurd Wagner certainly had an unbounded influence over tho Buvarion king, and if many of tho strongest adherents of Ludwig are to bo believed, it was Wagtior who prevailed upon him to withdraw from tho world and Its realism and live an ideal life, surrounded by the luxuries of art and music, amid tho mountains of his native Bavaria. Had it not been for the king, such works us tho "Ring des Nibelungen" and "Parsifal" would probably never have been produced with such grandeur, and tho gorgeous cost!o at Herrenchiemsoo would not now exist as the most wonderful of modern artis-tlo works.—Washington Press. Test Which Every Whist Should lie Subjected To. The test of every whist player Is his ability to accommo-If.te himself to his partner's play. I have knowii a good whist player, familiar with the points of the game and with tba ability and experience to use them toad vantage with a good partner, invariably uae tha signal when he was playing with a partner whom ho was perfectly well aware didn't know what tho signal was. There is in America much more so than in England a vast body of travelers who amuse themselves during the hours passed pn tba train with playing whist. Among theaa players there will occasionally be found * star of tho first magnitude, and there will also be found a great many cranks. Now the good player will accommodate hitwnlf every time to his partner's play, and it would bo tho most foolish thing in thé world (or him to do otherwise. Sometimes, however, tho difference lietween tho playing of partners is so great that the best player becomea exasperated, mid gives vent to it, if not in * polite, in a forcible manner. Here is a story told by a gentleman: "I was inveigled into a game on the train not Ionago," said he; "my opponents were an 'old timer1 and a good natured gentleman, who perhaps did not play as well as his part-ncr. The elderly man made all sorts of disagreeable criticisms, becoming finally disgusted with the good natured man's play. When a station was reached a lull occurred in the game. Soon a boy rushed In with a telegram nnd called loudly for Mr. Bliss, Ha walked down the aisle until became to tha wlust party (wo were all strangers to each other) when tho irascible old gentleman said to the boy and pointing to bis partner, 'Hera be is—Bliss.' The other gentleman looked op in astonishment, saying; 'My name is not Bliss.' 'Well, then,' replied the old man, *tt ought to be, for ignorance is bliss."M , TOM LAiramck A Leaf for a Cradle. Visitors to Fairmount park during the past week have been much interested iu tho splendid ¡specimen of Brazilian water lily, known as tho Victoria Itegia, flourishing in tlje par-terro above Horticultural ball. The leaves of tho plant aro fully a yard in diameter and shaped like green circular tea trays, with an inch high (order about their circumference. They rest lightly on the surface of tho water, but are of so strong a ilber that a dog or a ■mall child could readily stand upon them without finking. These loaves aro often used by South American mothers as resting places for their liulies, serving as a cross between a boat anil a cradle. Tho flower is an immense whito lily of wonderful purity and delicacy. The first blossom that lias appeari-d since tbe plant was brought from South America last spring iimi.areil ono day last week, but disappeared beneath the water on Friday. Another bud is expected to burst within a few days.—Philadelphia Record. Miss Harriet Colenso, daughter of the late Bishop Colenso, has spent more than 115,000 In the defense of tho son and brother of (.'eto-wayo and other Zulu chiefs, for ulleged high treason. Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett has bought a home in Surrey, England, uml is likely to spend most of her time there when not in the United States. Mrs. Buruett will probably return to the United States in November. A Famous Showman Passed Away. Mr. John V. O'Brien, the showman, who died recently at his residence at Frankford, Pa., was born thero in 1830. His father waa a stcno mason. Tho boy, at 13. started ai a stage driver on a lino running between Frankford and Philadelphia, and in- 1BW bought out tho line and ran It himself for two years. Ho then sold out, but continued the business l'or a w hile in other cities. In 1801 ho rented horses to Gardner & H e n n i ii g s to haul their show over tho country, and actcd himself as boss hostler. In J0B* v- O'BHIEW. 1S02 he purchased a third interest in the show and Ixxame assistant manager. Tbe next year he sold out and organized a company, traveling under the title of Bryans&Kn, Dan Rico's circus. This interest he sold in 1804 and started the Tom King KToelstor circus, no thus passed rapidly from onsefr-terp/lso to another, accumulating oonsidMP-ablo property, though for two years past ha has been somewhat embarrasnd. Still it la thought that his affairs will show a modwate fortune. _ JOSH BILLINGS' PHILOSOPHY. Faco all things! Even adversity is polits tew a uiau'u face.
