Hyperion Phantom Party.
Any ono stepping into the Masonic hall
Thursday evening would Imvo been at first
glance startled with the wierd and spectral
Bcenn presented. Silent nnd ghost-like fig
ures sheeted like the conventional spook
lllttod through the mazes of quadrille and
waltz llkn grim spirits mocking the pleasures
of the living. Whlli ) the mad whirl of some
of the changes recalled the dance of the
wlerd sisters in Macbeth mid needed but
their sepulchral tones to make the illusion
complete. It was hard to believe that this
congregation of spectres was only the mem
bers of the Hyperion club entertaining themselves -
selves with a sheet nnd pillow case party.
For some weeks the event had
boon the talk of particularly the lady
members of the club , and the question was
not , as usual , what to wear , but how to wear
it. However , their usual ingenuity came to
the rescue , and the result was some very
neat robes , despite their grotcsciuencss. The
party proved to bo a great success , and a
llttlng close to n brilliant season for the
Hyporlons. The disguises were perfect , and
but few recognitions were mado. The un
masking took place early in the course of the
dances , nnd resulted in a succession of sur
prises ns familiar faces appeared from behind
ghostly vestments. iTIio ladles were then
( ivon tlmo to rearrange their banes and
dancing was resumed , continuing until their
usual hour midnight. Hefrcshments were
interlarded at their proper season. At the
close of the party it was discovered that a
number both of the ladies as well as gentle
men had forgotten to bring their headgear
with them , ns they had como to the party
with their heads enveloped in pillow cases.
They had to ride homo bare-headed or don
their ghostly head dress , and considerable
merriment was produced thereby. The fol
lowing were among the persons present :

color , red lampshades , ribbons , drapery and
( lowers being used in rich profusion. The

thu predominating color , even to the service
and wax candles. The chandelier abovu was
draped in the same color , and from this il
luminator to thu four corners of the table
were festooned four bright red ribbons. The
liberal use of this flaming color and yet the
absence of anything gaudy was a triumph of
artistic tasto. The beautiful pictures and
statuary in thu parlors were an unending
source of entertainment to the visitors. The
Turkish boudoir , hunf ; with rich portieres
and other tapestries , hand-made in oriental
countries , was a source of wonder uiul de

A Novel Cloek ,
A put on Ior a now clock or chronom
eter has jiibt been granted that la at
tracting considerable attention hero. It
is tbo in vontion of V. H. and J. D , Gray ,
of Maryland , who claim that it can bo
made to run , if necessaryfor years after
wound. Other special features of the
clock' are that it In absolutely noiseless
when in operation and does away entire
ly with tbo pendulum nnd balance
wheel now used in clocks and watches.
Tbo running gear including both the
striking and time mechanism consists
of but six wheels and it requires but ono
spring to propel both of thebo attach
ments by the HBO of n partial Bolf-wlnd-
ing spring constructed to t\vo of tbo
wheels. Tbo inventors utilize the power
wasted by friction in other time-pieces ,
thus oanabling the clock to run a much
greater length of time with the Bruno
motive power or by one winding up ,
Tbo inventors intend to work a revolu
tion in clock-making by the Introduc
tion of a perfect time-pjcco which , thny
say , because of its simplicity , can bo
manufactured at much loss oostthan tbo

A SECRET SOCIETY SENSATION.
A Knight of Honor in Kvcry Sense-
Tlio A. O. U. AV. DolngH of the
A , Secret Society Sensation.
A sensation has Just developed in the se
cret society circles of u neighboring stale.
Several weeks ago the columns of the daily
press wcro illicit with nil account of an at
tack by highway robbers upon a well known
young man who was u member of at least six
secret organizations for ono of which he
acted as treasurer. On this occasion the
young man was robbed of nearly SHOO. The
members of the lodge determined ho should
not lose the amount and generously relieved
their unfortumito olllciul of all liability in the
The young treasurer expressed his thanks
und heartfelt gratitude nnd once moro as
sumed hiB vows of eternally existing in a
sphere of brotherly lovo. Hut u-certain mem-
her of the lodge felt very littlosympathy with
the sufferer. This gentleman determined to
follow up and watch closely every action of
the supposed victim. A short time
after 'tho robbery , the treasurer
of the society was discharged ;
from his business position because , us ho
Hinted , H superior had a grudge against him ,
Suspicious facts were placed before thu ledge
in the young man's absence and an Investi
gation demanded. A committo was selected
and work was commenced on the accounts.
The intricate and puzzling system which the
young man had employed in keeping the
books of the ledge loft the committee wholly
at sea. An expert was called in to conduct
the examination , butiifterlaboring fruitlessly
gave up the job In despair. Then the young
treasurer was called upon for an cxpluna-
lion , and ho appeared to bo very willing. An
evening was set , but the young man on Unit
particular evening was confined to his bed
and claimed to bo suffering from a bud cold ,
Upon Iho second call ho appeared bofvro the
coinmlttco , His smooth tongue and plausible
language were once more called upon to do
duty in defense of their owner's honor , but
thny failed. The committco was not to bo
blinded , and demanded satisfactory and not
The discrepancies in the accounts wcro
numerous and in some places rather largo In
amount , The treasurer guvo no explanation
of the discrepancies , but in order to straighten -
en himself guvo Iho ledge twenty-two notes ,
payable at the rate of ono every two months ,
to cover the deficit of & > 'J5.bll in his accounts ,
The lodge , of which ho was the treasurer ,
has expelled Iho young man , and as speedily
us is possible with their rule * , thu other or
ders uro doing the name thing ,
The ease of Joseph W. Hrunch , supreme
treasurer of the Knights of Honor , Is a re-
murkablo ono. Mr. Hranch was , up to a year
ago , u prosperous merchant of St. Louis ,
The confidence in his financial standing and
Integrity was unshaken , but to the surprise
of all ho mot with a most disastrous business
failure in the summer of 18b7. At that
time Mr. Hranch was holding a largo amount
of money , the funds of tlio Knights of Honor.
H was but natural that , In tha presence of
such a failure , the members of the order
should become alarmed for the welfare of
their money. In some sections the members ,
with perhaps pardonable indiscretion , pub
licly bewailed the loss their order would sus
tain. In the midst of his personal troubles ,
Mr. Hranch was waited upon by the officials
of thu grand ledge ana nn accounting called
for. A thorough investigation hhowed that
the ruined merchant had been true to his
trust. The affairs of the order had been
kept distinct from these of his private bust *
ness , and every dollar he hud received minus
the disbursements as shown by proper paper ,
was safely deposited in n bank to the credit
of the supreme treasurer of the
Knights of Honor. Through all
his personal reverses the unfortunutq
gentleman had proven himself worthy of the
confidence reposed in him , It U very likely
that Mr. Hrunch will soon recover from his
financial dlfllruHles. The great confidence
liU hretbera huvo in him is shown by the
'net ' timt .Joseph M tirnnch Is yet tha

About n year ago the grand mnstcr ofthO
A , R & A , M , In Missouri created n sensa-
ion by declaring the business of fwloonkeep-
ng to be n Mnsonla offense. At Its hist
Cession the grand ledge of the state sun *
nlncd the position of the unuul muster nntl
result was that u number of KuloonUecpcrR
, vho were Masons accepted their demits. A
largo number of liquor dealers still retnlu
heir membership. In order to enforce the
diet of the grand ledge on thli question ,
.ho present grand master has Issued a
proclamation. The grand mnster notifies nil
subordinate lodges in the Jurisdiction to 1'lvo
nil their members who am engaged In the
iilo of alcoholic liquors , the option of
inkling the business or withdraw
ing from the lodoc. In the
event of non-compllanro with this order , all
who so disobey are to have charges pro'
Tcrrcd against them , which charges shall bo
tried In the usual manner. In St. Louis the
Mlet Inn been reeognlncd by but few of the
odges. Some of the most prominent Masons *
of that city nro persisting In the enforcement
of the order. Other mul moro i-onsorvatlya
members say they nro perfectly willing that
: ho ociMtpiitlon of saloon-keeping should lie'n
llsqunlllloatlon for membership horcnftori
they hold , however , that it will .bo nn Injus
tice to expel roputnblo members , who nro
saloon-keepers , nnd who became Masons
long before the edict was thought of. Thcso
claim that the action of the Grand Ledge hate
to thotio already members was in Ita nature/
ex post fucto. and any attempt to enforce the
order will cause serious trouble.

A PERTAIN ledge In Omaha has adopted in
novel plan to awaken interest In the order
among the careless members. Like many
other lodges this particular ono has mnily
members who keep their dues paid up
promptly , yet who "novor fall to miss'a
meeting. " In order to bring these delin
quents to time the secretary of the ledge hfla
been instructed to Issue to each of these , n
note requiring their attendance on n certain
night "to meet certain charges In which you
are personally Interested. " The Intention is
to present charges in nn informal manner
against the delinquent nnd require him to
give his excuse for absenting himself from
the meetings of the lodge. A promise "to
sin no moro" invariably results In a with
drawal of the charges. It Is , however , the
manifest Intention of many of the , ,
lodges of the various secret orders here
to take serious steps to secure n reasonable/
attention from all members to the Interests !
of the lodge. If extreme measures must bo
adopted it is probable that muny of these
will decrease their membership to some ex
tent by dropping delinquents from the roll. .
