Of the ten members ..who. have died atnee the lodge, was organised six-passed away Anting the last. twelve months.. The exercises,, whk-h were open to the public, were attended; WV gathering of the members, thole-, families and . friend which filled the auditorium. The stage, which waif occupied by the office of the lodgo, the'' speakers.' and the singers, was beautifully st off with many palma and potted ferns,., while the orchestra pit waa banked with the same. On the speaker's table waa, a magntflcant bouquet of white chrysanthemums. The members of the lodge inarched from the club house to the theater In a' body 'and occupied the front seats In the parquet. Following the opening exercises accord ing to the ritual of the oMr, conducted fcy Exalted Ruler Bender and the officers of the lodge, Rev.' J. JV4msn of the Christian Home offered prayer and was ollowed by the singing of the anthem. "Jerusalem,' the Golden," by the choir of Bt, Paul's Episcopal church. Preceding the first address by Hon, B. ' B. Wadsworth, Mrs. W. "W. Sherman and Mrs. Robert Uullls sang .the duet, "Bun of My Soul.". Mr. Wadsworth said In part: Trlbnte of a Brother. we meet here on this occasion and pause for a moment ; ln the struggle of . yfe to reflect upon the memory ut (those- wbd have panned away; to hush our ears to the out side world while our thoughts listen to the familiar tread, the gentle word, the heart pulsations of our -once familiar brothers, who, in their Journey of life, have reached the last milestone of earthly trials and who have peacefully laid down to sleep on the pillow of death. In the "wlndowless chambers of rent." To our departed brothers earthly vicissi tudes have given way to the eternal peace of the shining stars; that Incomplete ex istence we call human life has given-way to the perfect atmosphere and cloudless skies of eternity; earthly discord Is trans ' formed Into the harmony of the 'heavenni where the stars sing their eternal songs of rest and peace. In our ritualistic work we have a time to call to memory our absent brothers in , life. With buoyant spirits and light hearts i lift our glasses and send greetings and godspeed to our absent brothers. In sick ness or In health, In Joy or In sorrow, on land or on sea. On this occasion 'We call 'to memory our brnthem ntment in .alh. Tir) a v mim lift our souls In memory of all the holy asplra-J parted. We bow- In -reverence before the. aaored altar of their memory, with tears of thought and sorrow, like unto the chil dren of Israel, when remembering Jerusa lem . In their captivity, they hung their harps upon the willows and mingled their tears with the waters of Babylon. At the close of Mr. Wadsworth' address Mrs. Sherman rendered the solo, "There la a Light Mine Eye' Hath 8eeh)'and rarely ha Mrs. Sherman been In better voleeor heard to better advantage. . V1 " ' Horu. John t Webster of Omaha then bade the principal addresa of the day, say ing In part: Nat eeaaloa, of Grief. i uo not iook upon ims occasion as one for grief or mourning. These exhibitions of feeling belong to the privacy of the family whose tins have been broken and where loving hearts have been melted by the sadness of separation. Tills public meeting is a memorial service and in re membrance and commemoration of the worthy service and lovable characteristics and touching actions; the charities and benefactions, that graced the life of our deceased brothers. We knew them aa living men; we remember them as living men with noble traits of character who associated with ' us In the sunshine of happiness. Bo our memorial service Is not one of grief over their departure, but of pleasant rememorance. in our moaern American uis we noia memorials in commemoration of the life ' and services of benefactors to mankind and of leaders In thought and action who have left their Impreaa upon the people. Once a year we keep in loving remem brance the life and service - of George Washington, the father of our country, f Abraham Lincoln. Its savior. They are not made ccaalona for mourning or grief aver their death, but for the giving of txpresslon to our admiration for their Ives, .of our sppreclstlon for the results rf their schlevements and of our gratitude to them for the splendid national Inherit ance we enjoy. looking toward the cheer ful side of life we have made these ocoa Mons something more than memorials. We have turned them Into celebrations and holidays. Bo closely are birth, life and desth linked together, and so universal Is their phere that they must be accepted as a tontines, an expression of the will and fiurpose of Ood. Were It not for these so sr as the humsn understanding can go the existence of Ood would be useless. The changes that have been worked by desth have not been to the disadvantage of the world, but rather to Its bettsrment. When the old has given place to the new we have generally found progress Rnd im provement. The phllneophy of modern life Is moving us onward toward a common brotherhood of man. May we also live our lives that when. In the hereafter, the men who are engaged In the field of action shall turn bark to read the lesson of our experience, that they mav there And encouragement from ex ample and thought to help them work out the future destiny of our country and God's will for the human race. The names of departed members were shojvn on an electric lighted screen on the stage and aa roll call of the honored dead waa read by Secretary Troutman the lights were extinguished and each name in suc cession parsed from view.

Mayhew Duncan, a boy about 10 years old, and his little companion, May Carter, r.ged I years, were in Imminent danger of crowning in Indian creek yesterday after noon but for the prompt csalatance of W. W.- Boyne, an ox-member ef the fire de partment, who rescued the children with considerable difficulty. , Toung Duncan and his companion were skating on the creek near Benton street, when the boy skated too cloae to the thin Ice at the edge of, what Is known as the dam pool. The Ice gave way, and young Duncan, In an effort to save .himself, dragged the little girl Into the, Icy water with him. Other children standing on the bank called for assistance, and Boyne, hearing the cries of the children that some one was drowning, hastened to the scene. Not realising that the water was deep at the point, Boyne Jumped in after the chil dren, only to discover that he could not touch the bottom! With considerable dif ficulty he secured the children, bqth of whom were completely exhausted and be numbed with the cold, and with the as sistance of William Hall of Benton street; who had been attracted to the scene by the cries of the children, he' succeeded in bringing them to dry land. Hall's arrival waa most opportune, as Boyne, with the weight of the two children, was unable to aecure a firm footing on the Ice, which kept giving way under the combined weight of the three. The pool formed by the Bow of the water over the dam where the children fell m Is nearly twenty feet deep. , We Give Thanks PBCAnSB there are lots of people who have money In the bank.

The fact is made plain In the biennial report of the superintendent of public Instruction, Just filed with the governor, that while Iowa Is a growing state and Its population has shown a steady Increase, the school population is not on the increase and school attendance and enrollment is ac tually decreasing. This Is accounted for In part by some evidence that there is less care ln the securing and perfecting of re ports than formerly, because the tendency Is to have smaller families as the degree of literacy Increases, and becauae of the fact that there has been a great Immigra tion to the west and northwest in recent years. ,A great many families have gone from Iowa to Canada and states of the west in recent years, and as a rule they are large families, moving out to places where an abundance of land can be secured cheap. The number of scholars enrolled In the public schools of the state the past year was B50.2O2, while last year the report was 660.173, a loss of nearly 2 per cent in one year. Notwithstanding' this. the report show an Increase in the number of teachers and the amounts expended for school pur poses. Deputy Superintendent. Superintendent Barrett makes a number of recommendations in his report. He would have a legal deputy authorised for each county superintendent, and he should have authority to visit schools. The legiti mate traveling expenses of a county super intendent should be borne by the county. The county superintendent or a county board of education should be given the power to condemn school houses unfit for school use. There are 1,000 school houses In Iowa that are poor and unfit dwelling places for children. The passage of a law making It possible to unite school districts Is urged. The law regarding the adoption of books by county boards of education should be amended so that all adoptions and' readoptlons should occur on the same day throughout the state. There is some doubt, which should be cleared, as to whether text books may be adopted with out providing for their sale at the same time. There is need of amendment ln re gard to the extension of city boundaries so that residents of forms annexed shall have a right to be heard before being de prived of Independent school life. The school corporations should be allowed to Issue bonds to the amount of at least 8 per cent of the actual value of the property, aa It has been found that under the present limitation money cannot be raised to build school houses of suitable slse. There should be a suitable penalty provided for failure to comply with the publlo school library law, which has not always been obeyed. He would have the school corporation fall ing to comply with the Jaw, be deprived of Its portion of the school, apportionment, employment Agency. As a further aid to recurlng good teach ers, Superintendent Barrett makes the recommendation that a sufficient sum be provided the superintendent of publlo In struction to employ a ' competent person whose duty It shall to assist hoards of directors ln securing suitable teachers, and to render aid to touchers seeking poslticws. Many boards annually apply to the depart ment for teachers, and teacher often In quire for vacancies. The s.nnual expendi ture of nearly $6,000,000 for teachers1 sala ries alone, together with . the fact that nearly 20,000 t'ichers are required to sup ply the .schools, calls for far greater aid on the part of the state to get employer and employe together without unnecessary expense. The present appropriation made to the office of superintendent of publlo instruction Is Insufficient to enable the de partment to employ a competent person to do tha work required, and as a conse quence teachers' agencies undertake to se cure positions for teachers on ths payment of certain annual or biennial fees. As a general rule, teachers located by agencies are required to pay S per cent of their an nual salary to the agencies, ln addition to the enrollment fee charges of $1,60 or $2. The amounts received by ' the teachers' agencies are unknown, but are reported to be large ln proportion to "the services rendered. If an agency places one super intendent at $2,600, five at $1,200, and ten at $600, the total income for obtaining posi tions for sixteen persons is $767, estimated on the above percentage. To secure posi tions for three times the number weuld give an income equr.1 to the superintend ents of our beet clues. Superintendent Barrett says ha has made this recommen dation on behalf of the teachers, and not kgalnst the agencies. Longer Contracts. The recommendation made In the last biennial report that authority be given boards to employ teachers for a longer period, since the limit as fixed by a deci sion of the supreme court Is now one year. Is rehewed. Thirty-seven per cent of the superintendents In charge of city school systems in county seat towns ln 1898 have left the profession. 3 per cent have changed locations, thus leaving 24 per cent unchanged In six years. An estimate made with considerable care shows that nearly 10,000 changes in schools are made annually when all schools are taken Into considera tion. Permanency In school work is 'essen tial if the beat results are to be bad. Su perintendent Barrett says he can think of no objection that can lie urged againat the enactment of a law granting boards au thority to employ superintendents, prin cipals and teachers for Iwo or four years. It Is contemplated that such law should be permlsatve, not mandatory. Drake College tiets Money. Although Drake university has lost Its chief benefactor and namesake by death.
