lias Weathered the Storms.
"When I first entered the order there was
quite a storm brewing," said Colonel T.
W. McCullough In responding to the toast,
"He Patient." "We have weathered the
gale, however, and find we have come
through the cleaner and brighter and
stronger because df the storm which is gone
Its force is spent and the trees of the
forest worth keeping are left standing
"We have had other storms since that
time but we have met every Issue with that
spirit of patience which actuates Wood
men. We have proceeded patiently step by
step until we have broken a path so far
ahead into the new country that today we
are the marvel of the Insurance world.
"Different prophesies than those Just
made by Neighbor Magney were made at
that time. It was said that long before wo
reached this anniversary we would be out
of business, as experience had shown we
could not do what we were trying to do.
They still marvel at us, but they are shak
ing their heads and wondering w hat we
will do next.
"Therfe Is no limit to the possibility of
the membership of Modern Woodmen, nor
to Its Influence for good. We have sur
passed our own fondest hopes and what
we have done has boen achieved by pa
tience. We have gone ahead, keeping right
to (the line suggested by the principles on
which the order was founded. Ws have
found solid ground and the success Is the
result of patient, persevering progress.
Fraternal insurance has come to be quite
a fdd, hut the good old Modern Woodmen
lias gone ahead and success still crowns
Its path and will crown It for the reason
that It is moving on safe lines."
A letter of reminiscence was read from
J. W. Houder, who gave some of the early
experiences of the order.
Way Woodcraft Succeeds.
Head Consul A. K. Talbot spoke on
"Modern Woodmen, Paat and Present."
"If one would understand thoroughly the
force which la sending this ordYr to the
fore he must study the history of the or
ganisation. We are a part of the lives of
all the great men who have lived through
the ages. Just as our civilization Is the
product of the ages.
"This society Is a breathing, living Insti
tution which has grown and developed un
der the demands of mankind. The growth
cannot be limited by any1 man or set of
men and the future can only be foretold by
what the past has brought forth. The
Modern Woodmen was born In an oppor
tune time, when all procesrrs worked to
lead men to a higher plane.
"The first ten years of this society were
almost a failure, but during the last fif
teen years giant strides have been made
and some msrvelous things accomplished.
We have paid $64.&UO,000 to widows and or
phans and today we have nearly l,0u0,000
members, or nearly one-seventh of the fra
ternal membership of this country. This
Is a plain business man's society, the kind
of 'men who have bullded homes and made
this nation what It is by fighting Its wars
and always being to the fore In times of
need. It Is the fruitage and the flowering
of the doctrine of co-operation. We se
cured 147,000 new members, last year, and
January this year starts out stronger than
last. This Is young men's order and Is
revolutionising Insurance orders. The av
erage age of the members Is less than it
was when the society was organized. The
society was t4.0u0.ftn0 to the good at the
first of t lie year. The principal thought of
the society, however. Is to mould the lives
of the youth of .America," said Neighbor
Talbot, who discoursed eloquently and con
vincingly on the possibilities for good of
the Immense potential force represented
by the membership of the order.
At the close a reception for the hend
council was held, at which all had a chance
to "walk right up and say hello."

Officer Cullcn found him walking up the

questioned tho merchant and M,oso told
him ho had bought the clothes from two
soldiers. The two soldiers had come to the
city with a month's pay, had doffed Hie
uniforms of 1'nclo Sam and had donned
citizens' ciotlies. When they had spent
their wages and were resdy to return to
the fort they sold the citizens' clothes to
Tho officer asked Mose where he got the
M cents with which to buy the clothes.
There he thought he hnd Mose, for Mose
was never known to have that much cash
at one lime In his life. But the officer had
not reckoned on Mose's abilities as a Na
poleon of finance. Mose, in fact, had pur
sued th same method so popular In Wnll

cents from Red-Headed Jess, using as col

who, some of the "women testified, had
collected the ti daily rent from them. The
charge against him Is renting premises for
Immoral purposes. He was arrested In Hie

Martin's Arcsde is as great as ever. Mayor
Dahlman and Chief of Police Donahue do
not know why the women have been driven

The Arcade had been vacant since It was
raided several weeks ao. but Thursday
night the lights were turned on nnd the
doors unlocked and Hie "cribs" quickly
filled. Then the rsld was made under tha
acting mayor orders.
"I don't know who has initiated this
action," said t.'hier Donahue. "The places
