In Alhpitn, pave n very enllBhtening address tin the origin nnd the work of the DiiukIi-ters of tho l-:inpire ihiousliout the Dominion, Inst nlKhl at the V..M.C.A. The oitler was started in li�0O during tho South African war and wits the first women's imperial and patriotic orsanlzatioii formeil In Cnnnda. It is and always has been, noii-party, non-pollliciil and undenotniimtionnl. but as Mrs. Spence said it may be dlfficull to keep II that way here iit)W that no-moii In Alberta have the vole. The motto of the order is '�One flag, one I throne and one empire." ti truly pa-Itriotlc motto. KeiuK either a Hrllish i subject, or the wife of a Hritish subject, which amounis to the same , thing, is the only (inallfleatlon needed 'to apply for membership in a chap-� ter. and on admission .vou are ro-; quired to make this declaration, "1 'am a toyal subject of King C.eorge. the fifth, and will abide by the laws 'of the order." Mrs. Clark Murray. I'f .Montreal, was the origiiialor of this ogflni/.nt-tion. which now extends from coast to coast. She had found thai women I were eager to work btit had no orgai\-! ization. At firsl the l.O.D.i:. grew i very slowly, hut Mrs. .Murray never ! despaired "and now can look with i pride on the splendid work that is ' beins 'lone. The Cuild of Loyal Wo-�menof South Africa was formed at i almost the same time. Their chief ! work was in looking after the graves 'of the fallen in the South African war, ; not only looking after them but find-ling out the immes of the heroes and I identifying their graves, this was no !ensy task its often the graves were i :;00 or .too miles from a railway. Not '; only were the graves of the eontiuer-jors looked after bit also tlie graves iof the conquered. Fach Christinas day these plots, which mark the las! resting place of brave soldiers, are decorated with floweis. The l.O.D.i;. sent luonev to this Ciulld to look nfl"r the .graves of the Canadian soldierR. Hefore the war. the work of the order was in most cases to stimulate patriotism and to foster this estimable object they started with the �school ehildreli: patriotic progn\ms ; were prepared for the schools anil I "' started. This latter �object has given the children a clearer iuBiglil into conditions in other liritlsh countries, as letters are being exchanged with scholars in the Hrit-i Isles. India. .Vustralla and -New Zea-! land. Then the annual essay conipetl-'tiou. which we have hud each .vear in I this city, was started. Patriotic subjects are chosen for the children to write on and suitable prizes are giv-; en l"or the best comi>osition. The honor of having F.uipiie Day lobseived belongs to ilie Daughters of ; the I-^mpire, a.s it was .Mrs. Fesaenden I of Hamilton, a loyal luembcr. who ! first conceived the idea of celebrat-j lug this day. which has almost world-j wide recognition now. In 1914. fiii.tiOO 'children asBembled on llanip.siead ! Heath, l.ondon. to observe this day. and were -addreasei by Lord Menth and other great speakers. The work of the order has not been confined to Canada alone as a domes-jtie science school has been founded i In India, for native women and there is a Canadian hospital at Nasip, In-jdia. snpporti :1 by the l.O.O.K. I Fighting Tuberculosis Perliaps one of the greatest works i and cne that is showing such splendid results is the fight that the order is making against tuberculosis. The I-iamiltoil brancii were the originators in this work and gave lour beds to the hospital at Gravenhurst, to them also helong.s the horor of establishing in their city' the first Preventorium. Several such- insiitution.'s have since been founded and they do a wonderful work, here children are brought from tubercular' infected I homes and given a chance to escape ; the dread disease. Tlielr schooling Is 1 not nei'lected either as there are spe-i cial teachers who come every day to ! iiiHtruct them. Dally dozens of chll-I dren are being coaxed back to lifii i and health and taught how to care for 'themselves so iis to prevent the return of the disease. Another patriotic work has been to I commemorate historical events. Along Ithis line tin: .\iexaiKler (iales iit fjueen's Park. Toronto, were built to commemorate the visit of King I (ieorge and Queen .Mary to Canada. When the Canadian contingent went to I'^ngland lo be present at the present King's coronation they were pre-' sented with colors by the I.O.D.K. at Quebec before suiling. In memory of .\eI.son, a chime of bells was given to the church of his birthplace. Burn-ham Thorpe. Norfolk. ICngland. A fund ' lias been founded to give prizes each lyear for essays on "Heroism" in mem-ory of Sarah .Maxwell, who gave her Hie lo nave lOd little school children at lioehela.iia, near .Montreal. .\s imperial unity is the mainspring of the I.O.D.K.. they try to have tho I'liion .lack floating to the breeze wherever there is British rule. "It's only a Hniall bit of bunting. It's only an eld tattered rag. Hut thiiusands have died for Us honor And are shedding I heir blooil tor that flag." The Queeir Victoria monument at Berlin. Out., and the General Urock statue ai Krockvllle have been erected by Ihe order. In addition to this there have been memorial gates, tablets, drinking louiitalna, erected, prl'ul\-a-tive�' an
