the nunnls of tho Ootamandery.
Plumed Knights, beaatifully gown

decorations, good things to eat and
drink, wise nnd wittv speech wire
never better combined and more pret
tily harmonized than nt the meeting
Inst night. Tho ensemble ns the ladies

to the Oolnmbus citizen who occupies
tho offico of Kight Eminent Grand
Commander of the Knights Templar
of Nebraska. Dr. L 1). Evans and, a
credit to Uethsemane ('ommandory.
Nearly one hundred people, inclnding
tho Knfghts mid their families and a
very few invited guests were present.
At uine o'clock theKnlebts marched
into the hnll whore the regalarr ellg
ious service of the Knights wns con
ducted by Sir Her. D. O. Pattee of
Cnlnr Knpids It was a beautiful ser
vice nhly conducted. At the close of
tho service the following named offi
cers of Gothsomano Commander? were
Installed by Kight Eminent Sir Fran
cis E. Whate of Omaha assistod by
Kmliient Sir Hobert McConaughy,
grand marshal ; Oustnvus A. Hchroo

Messrs. Fred Saffron and LloydS wain,
accomiHMiieil on the organ by Mrs. C.
J. Garlow and on the violin by Prof.
Frank Slke. Tho music was appro
priate and it was given in a manner
that euvoked geueral compliment.
At the close of the installation the
guests repaired with the Knights to
the banquet hall where n mosl tempt
ing menu was served by the ladies of
tho Episcopal guild. Two long tables
wero spread tho full length of the
hnll and n short table decorated with
red roses stood nt the head of tho hall
for the speakers.
It is impossible in a brief descrip
tion to do justice to the excellent
speeches. Each is worthy nf special
meutiou. All the knightly virtues
were extolled nud n lofty sentiment
ran like n thread through the three
nours of speech making.
Sir Carroll D. Evaus presided as
toastmastcr, introducing the speakers
with appropriate nud dignified re
marks. Toasts wero responded to as

It would not bo right to pass the
tonsts without ranking special refer
ence to those responded to by the
Indies. It is not doing an injustico to
tho ranlo spokesmen to say that
Mrs. Evnus and Mrs. Stires outshone
the ohiualric knights.
