Shortly after 10 o'clock the lodge
in a body, headed by its lion hearted
officer, marched to the Harrington
and filed into the dining robm,- where
three long and beautifully arranged
tables were ready for them.
Such a banquet as the Elks partook
of is seldom enjoyed by ordinary mor
tals. As "Sunny. Jim," the originator
and to a great extent, executive of
the entire evening's performance, re
marked it was truly "a game ban
quet." Mr. Retkey certainly executed
his part of the contract to perfection
and of the many banquets served by
the Harrington, none has been better
arranged or carried out. The differ different
ent different members of the lodge had contri contributed
buted contributed a bountiful supply of game game-quail,
quail, game-quail, wild turkey, deer and squirrels;
and in addition to all of the other
good things to eat and drink, there
were great platters heaped with the
smoking game, broiled quail, roast
turkey, sliced, garnished and dressed,
tender slices of venison steak with
savory gravy, broiled squirrels and,
oh, gee, everything that was good to
eat, and well, they did eat.
There was much speechmaking and
lots of fun in the banquet hall, the
officer of the law creating much mer merriment
riment merriment by his antics, and every mem member
ber member there enjoyed the feast to its fullest-extent.
After the close of the ; menu some
very choice cigars were passed
around, real old 15-centers, made es especially
pecially especially by Mr. Charles Peyser for
this occasion, with Elk bands and
Elk labels on the boxes. The members
appreciated Mr. Peyser's compliment
and showed it in every ring of smoke
that they blew'.
Towards the close of the banquet
it was suggested that a volunteer con contribution
tribution contribution be raised towards paying off
the debt on the Elks home, the mem members
bers members responding royally, and about
$200 additional was soon raised for
this purpose. j

Incident of the War of 1870 Recalled,
, When Bravery Amounting to Fool-
hardiness Was Exhibited to
wm mm mm mdys
Great bravery is rarer on a retreat
than on a charge, for obvious reasons;
the excitement and thrill of attack is
then lacking, and the necessity of
haste in' order to get away is often
real. This fact makes interesting an
incident related concerning a soldier
in the army of the Rhine in the war
A battery of mitrailleuses had made
a stand against tne advancing Ger Germans
mans Germans near Metz. It was 'on the 18th of
August, in the brave fight made by the
division of General Picard. The fire
of the enemy was terrible, and seemed
to be sweeping away the whole French
In the midst of the final firing of the
French, prior to their inevitable re
treat, one of the mitrailleuses ceased
to work on account of the sticking of
a shell in the barrel. A lieutenant
looked about for something with which
to remove the shell, and a soldier of
fered him his pocketknife. The lieu
tenant had just removed the shell
when the order came to fall back. In
the confusion the officer dropped the
soldier's knife on the ground. When
they had withdrawn a little distance
the soldier came up to the lieutenant
and said, saluting:
'Will you please let me have my

. The soldier showed signs of deep re regret.
gret. regret. "I'll get you another in Metz to take
its place," said the officer.-
"It isn't the value of the knife .at
all," said the soldier. "I'm just fond
of it, that's all. I brought it from
home. If you will permit, I shall go
back after It."
"In the face of this fire and the ad advance
vance advance of the enemy?" .'.-
"Well, if you care as much as that
for a pocketknife it must be pretty
dear to you. Go on!"
The soldier started back. Shot and
shell were flying; the enemy "were
near, somewhere in the gloom of the
battlefield, and the man knew he might
be overwhelmed. And all this for an
bid knife that he had carried since he
was a boy, and which was associated
with dear things at home.
He reached the place and found the
spot where the gun must have stood.
He groped about. Thee balls whistled
in his ears and shells burst He heard
the rattle of approaching artillery and
the near blaring of bugles sounding
orders. It was the enemy advancing.
Nevertheless, he kept on rummaging
about for the old knife. He found it.
It had been dropped while still open,
and the blade glistened. He picked it
up and thrust it into his pocket. He
ran so fast that before long he over overtook
took overtook his retreating company. The lieu
tenant saw him coming up and looked
Inquiringly at him.
"I've got It, lieutenant!" he shouted,
slapping his pocket.

Sir Edward Grey an Angler.
Sir Edward Grey, England's man of

caused John Morley to say 20 years
ago: "That young man will go far far-he
he far-he wrill be prime minister some day."
He is fifty-two years of age, and,
curiously enough,- despite the position
he holds, his only book is not a work
of international diplomacy, but an au authoritative
thoritative authoritative treatise on fly fishing. Sir
Edward was educated at Oxford and
at twenty succeeded his grandfather
in the baronetcy. As a very young
man he was as fond of tennis as of
angling, and won the amateur cham championship

he was elected to the house of commons.

"You see I am a slave to my dear

had told Lord Giltroy. "I must work

your love, but I feel that our paths

separated that it would be difficult

Without knowing it, Madge swayed
slightly toward him. His arms went
swiftly about her and his Hps covered
her own before she could stir.
"I will give you another fortnight

He let her go then, and Madge went

had decided when she first saw her
part that the little trunk full of
clothes with which she had come to
Broadway from the country would
costume the role as no other clothes
would. The runk was always with
her. It was the closest link with the
past and a treasured possession.
When Madge opened it to look over
its contents she had not realized that
a tumult of emotion would sweep
over her. The longing to get back
to the old farm brought tears to her
eyes,-and when she picked up the old
pink, sunbonnet that had .clung to her
curly head through rain and through

She turned suddenly and looked
into his laughing eyes. He took both

her from head to foot.
"Well. If I had known you when
you were a wee girl like that you
would never have been crowned by
theatrical laurels and I would never
have been a baronet. I would have

"You not a baronet? How could
