Order of elks and the initials Are now made to read Best people on Earth. In 1883 a new ritual was adopted bringing virtual reorganization of the order. Although some changes have been made owing to the great growth of the order the ritual is very much As it was under the reorganized code. At first there was a disposition to confine Tho membership to actors and musicians but. The sentiment for this restriction was not Strong enough to prevail and candidates from outside circles soon began to apply for admission. In 1874 there were but two lodges in 1882 the number increased to 14, while there a re now More than 1,000 lodges and about a Quarter of a million members. Unlike nearly All of the secret societies Tho elks have no intermediary Bod Between the Home Lodge and the grand body but in.

Was to valuable ipad kept the underwriters from Selling the Craft until Long after it had become generally believed a that she was a total wreck a 1 consequently the auctioneer cried the Good ship Dorothea Many times without getting a bid. Finally to lib Young a apprentice jokingly bid five dollars As nobody would bid higher the vessel and her cargo were knocked Down to him.

But at All times the head of the firm and his family successors made a Point of owning and operating a ship named the Dorothea which name also was Given the oldest daughter in each succeeding generation. Shortly before the Spanish War however the third head of the House was in failing health and the Only Hope of saving his life he advised was to live at sea. Accordingly he gave an order to the cramps for a Large and luxuriously appointed yacht to be called the Dorothea of course and no expense was spared in her construction and equipment unfortunately death came to the owner before his yacht was finally finished and the government paid a fancy Price for the Dorothea Early in 1808. With the close of the War there was no purely naval duty for which the Dorothea was fitted and yet the govern Merit did not wish to sell her because there was no possibility of getting a Price for her anything like what she had Cost.
