The M Co ol * u Moon Maiden Vlsltlm ;
tlio Kurti. !
Ouo of the best of thu early stories of
the .lapanoso if the "Takelori no Okiim
no Monocular ! , " or , as translated by
Mr. Victor IJk'kctis and publishi'il un
der the title of "The- Old liamlmo
Hewei-'a Story. " The midorlyiut , ' ideas
in it are obviously ChinuM ! . sajs the
AUiominitii. but the tresitirii'iit hears
the iniprobs of a moro hiuik'itmtivo rare ,
and ; told in the words of Mr. Dickens ,
it becomes a jinieeful nnd interesting
story. Of Ihu bamboo huwor ,
litUu is said and no hint
tfivcjii of the hidilon virtue which
marked him out as ti favorite of the
tfods. Hut just as the glory of ISuddha
appears only to the oy ' * of the faithful
on Iho ho-oiu of the nmts which spread
over the valleys bonuath the mountain
temples of the ROI ! and the relics
which to ordinary mortals luivo the
snmblunco of dusl < y beads shine in the
sight of tin ; devout believers as lustrous
tear drops , so to the ijious bamboo
bower nlono was rovealcd in the heart
of n bamboo stem a shining light < jn-
conipa ing a lovely llguro of
a tiny infand. With reverent
care the woodman carried home
tlio child , who irrew into a maiden of
such surpassing loveliness- ) that all tlio
nobles in the laud bought her in mar
riage. With her pros3iieo canu for
tune to her protector , whoso only dread
was that the time would arrive whoii ho
should lose the delight of her society by
her marriage. But lo his joy ho found
that hho was us unwilliiii'to accept tho1
lionmgo of her suitoras ho was un
willing to bestow her hand. Five of her
noble lovers , however , so persistently
urged their suits that she had recourse
to the expedient which in fairy tales
of all nations is invariably adopted by
unwilling brides. To each she seta
task as ditllcult to accomplish as "nuni-
boring sands and drinking oceans dry.1'
The lir-l she S'-nt in quest of the Holy
( trail , the sacred bogging bowl of
Liiuklha ; the second was ordered to
bring anil lay at her hvt a branch from
the tree whoso roots are of silver , whoso
trunk is of gold , and wlio-so fruitage i
of pure white jade , which grows on the
sacred mountain of Horai ; the third was
commanded to present her with a fur
robe of the pelt of Ihe llaiuo-proof rat ;
from the fourth she required "the rain
bow hued jewel that hides its sp.u-Klo
deep in the dragon's head1 ; an.l the
fifth was charged with the search of
the cowry shell winch the swallows
bring over the broad Mja plain.
It is nefdle-s to say that one and all
failed lo fulfill Ihe required conditions.
Meanwhile Ihe milcado- heard of the
buanty of the inaidon , and. like the
kings' in the Gorman forests , the Htis-
siau wilds , and tlio Indian mountain' ,
he , under the pretense of hunting , approached
preached the woodman s cottage and
succeeded in catching a glimpse of tlio
lovely form of the lady Knguya. So
enamored did be become of the vision
that he besought her to share his
throne. Hut no better did he faro than
the other lover : ! , and was fain to
put up with an occasional letter
in reply to the missives which ho con
stantly' dispatched to the woodman's
hut. 'At length the Lady Kaguya an
nounced to her protector that the time
bad come for her lo return to her homo
in the moon , whence she had originally
descended to earth. And , though on
the appointed night a strong guard was
posted around the house by order of the
mikado lo prevent the Might of the
maiden , a troop of heavenly being , es
corting a chari'iot. descended through
the air and bore away tiieir pri/.e to her
celestial abode.
Donning Female At tire to Il

A certain light coinple.xioned young
man. with no visible signs of a board ,
and his charming sister , Fannie , look a
treed deal alike , says the Albany ( N. Y. )
Telegram. A pink domino parly was
given at the house of a lady on Stallord
street , West Troy , and Miss Fannie was
invited. She was im full of fun as her
brother , and when the latter requested
that ho bo allowed to take her best
dress and attend the party .she readily
conbonte.d. Wednesday evening Fannie
assisted Jlarr.v in gutting the tonmlo

Harry promised to bo careful , and af

it was all lie could do to talk as near

into the car of a mini. Harry was es
corted homo nnd those who atlondud
tlio allair would never have known the
secret , but Fannie could not keep it ,
and just told it to ono young lady who
attended the party. The story is now
all over town and there are a do/.cn

like scratching his eyes out for the
things that they &uid in his hearing. "

A lllstor-y of ttucrct Societies.
A number of years ago , says if writer in the
San Francisco Examiner , wo investigated
somewhat i-ito the origin and history of fra
ternal co-operation , aid : were surprised ,
gratified and , in fact , astonished at thu ago
and success of scores of such organizations
throughout the world , and us recently there
have been published some articles denying
that fraternal co-operation is of any ugi1 , or
has any stability , or can be permanent , the
following facts and cjmments are j'iven :
The oldest fraternal bencllcinl society in
the w.'rid is the Count doVinton society ,
nrjranUiid In ll l , and is still in existence.
The next oldest is the Loyal Kvanus society ,
established in IMS. The registrar of Eng
land ivp.cts eighty-nine friendly or bene
ficial societies in ex stance that were orga
nised in the seventeenth century , and over
1KK ( ) such societies thill are over fifty years
old. In England Itl.T.Vi friendly societies
are reported , with 7OJO,000 members. Tlio Liver Friendly society , organised in
l-fiJ. reports S ! > "iOTi , ( members. As the old
world for many years has proved the value
of these organization ! ) , it lias gone beyond
any experiment and meets the patronage and
i o-'opi-ratiou ol the people. In this country
tlio co-operative feature is comparatively
new , but as years roll by the great practical
value and necessity of sucli organizations
will be manifest to all.
For a time there was a great spirit of hat
red and jealousy on the part of life insur
ance companies toward the secret benevolent
association. * . The life insurance companies
liave connto see and know that these fra
ternal societies have educated the people up
to life , and especially endowment insurance1 ,
and almost abolished the objections made by
wives and children. Peonlo have learned
that taking out u policy deus not necessarily
imply that a man is Koing to dm immediately ,
or Hint the paying of it premium is equivalent
to a dose of strychnine , and thousands now
hold life and endowment policies that before
these fraternal societies liimlliari/cd the pub-
lie with the idea , won d have looked upon a
iifo insurance agent as they would some fore
runner of a pestilence.
Tlio feeling toward Iho benevolent as
sociations has not hecn of recent date.
In Ib.Yi the leading actuary of the world
said it was impossible for the Odd Fellows
to pay ? . " > per week sick benefits und $75
funeral benefits on f ! or W per year dues ;
hut at the end of thirty years that mime act
uary Is now ono of thu foremost advocate ?
of the truth that co-operative endowment Is
feasihlo and pc'i-mam'iil. The public gen
erally are coming to know these facts , and
for this reason , if nothing else , the growth of
all tlio orders having benevolent endowment
associations connected with them is no rapid
and permanent.
io Senate.
Thu annual meeting of the senate of the
A. O. U. W. was held at Cleveland , Ohio ,
recently. In addition to all the old senators
the following members appeared ut their
first annual meeting :
Messrs , J. DoWolfo , Columbus , Ohio ; L.
K. Parks , Toledo , Ohio ; F. K. Smith , Saginaw -
inaw , Mich. ; J. N. Study , Hichmond , I ml. ;
G. H. lliifgins , Warren , Pa , ; G , W. Dexter
and John Fairbanks , Chicago. The senate
now consists of twenty-tivo members , eight
een of them having been elected by assem
blies duriiiK Iho past four years , which indi
cates thu cltaniro that lias been made in the
composition of Iho body. Among Iho important
nmtterH brought before the meeting might bo
mentioned the regular monthly assessment
onihelOth ; another , requiring that a copy
of thu application bo attached to the benefit
certificate , in order to conform to thu laws of
some of the suites in cases where fraud maybe
bo siiK.ecteil. | The article rclatluc to hiuard-
ous occupations wus thoroughly recon
structed , and passenger conductuis wcro ex-
ceptcd from the list.
A niiinbur of important propositions came
before the meeting , but were voted down.
Among them wore- The reducing of the
maximum benefit to ? 3,000 ; ono calling for u
biennial cession of tlio senate ; a proposition
to strike out the suicide clause and u number
of minor changes ,
F. N. Gage , of Chicago , was elected presi
dent for the ensuing year. Lakeside , near
Sunduaky , O. , was selected us the place for
holding the next meeting.
Tlio Pennsylvania Cane.
When the meeting of the supreme lodge ,
Knights of Pythias , was in session at Cin
cinnati the supreme council to whom the
Pennsylvania dlttlculty was referred took
tlio following action ; It approved the action
of Supreme Chancellor Howard Douglass in
suspending the grand lodge , agreeing that
Ihe grand lodge charter should be restored
conditionally upon their complying with the
orders of the supreme chancellor heretofore
issued. The grand ledge is placed under the
order of the supreme chancellor until such
action is taken. Tlio supreme lodge refused
to admit the representative from tlio old or
loyal grand ledge until the orders originally
issued by Supreme Chancellor Douglass were
obeyed. At the following day's session it
adopted the report of the committee on en
dowment rank , authorizing the board of con
trol of that department to levy an assessment
in addition to one per month , as licretofoie ,
when necessary. The ledge adopted a reso
lution declaring explicitly that no authority
has ever been granted for the creation of a
ledge of colored knights , and that no colored
man can lawfully bo admitted to any lodge.

An Honor ol' a Life-Time.
An honor , almost without precedent in the
annals of Freemasonry in New York slale ,
says un exchange , was conferred upon Grand
Master Fnlnk J { . Lawrence , at tl.o annual
meeting of the Grand , lodge in New York
city hist week. lie was elected to a fourth
term as grand master , a distinction which
has been enjoyed , it is said , by only ono man
before him , Mr. Lawrence has dovotcd his
best energies during hm three years as grand
master to the payment of the big debt upon
the Masonic Uiinplo , und has been so far suc
cessful that only about $75,000 remains to be
liquidated. The debt has been decreased
f 100,000 during the past year , and there is
ovcry reason to believe that another year
will see the temple free from debt. All of
thu old oIllecrH were re-elected at Ihu same
lime wllh Brother Lawrence , and every past
grand muster living was present , except two.
