Second, to erect one wing of modern orphans' home. Third, modern hospital for the sick, erected by wings, as needed. Fourth, a home for the old and infirm. Fifth, a first class military and training school both sexes. The home will always controlled by members of tho home who are in good standing in the order of the Knights of the Globe. The home will never be influenced by politics or sectarianism, but \yillbe conducted strictjy on the principles of true and unadulterated Americanism. The hospital and military and training school for the youths will be national in character. The query with many persons, and especially with the doubting and fearful ones, is "How is the home to be successfully established and supported?" First of all by the honest and unselfish, and the lover for the elevating and ameliorating of the human race. To become a member of the home requires a fee of $100. This fee used only as an endowment, and the interest of the same can only be used for the support of the home. This a fund that will never cease growing. There is no limit to its growth. The money for the land and the buildings for the home will be raised as needed from the sale of the souvenirs and the income of the souvenir clubs, which will be established fcr that purpose, and other sources. Also donations, mainly large donations from wealthy men, who will pay for buildings that will cost from $10,000 to $50,000, that shall be monuments them by naming said buildings after them, as Rockfeller hall. Each will be a hail, thereby giving wing an op- many to hand thei to posterity as philan- ss I, Oscar E.

To WHOM IT MAY CONCEUN—Dear friends of Freeport, Til.—Greeting: It with pleasure that we inform you that tho Knights of the Globe Home has been chartered on thin, the 22d day of February, 1900, Washington's birthday, and is located in the city of Freeport, 111. The object of the home is purely for tho benefit of unfortunate humanity, to good, elevate the human race, and better the condition of the human family. As children of one God, it in their duty to provide for tho unfortunate orphans, tho old and infirm, the sick and distressed, and, above all, to to the proper and correct educating and training of tho youth. It is the3 object of the home when, complete in all its departments, to do share, in a degree, in thin world, according to its capacity, (and that capacity will depend entirely on tho lib- ernlity of the friends of the homo) for benefit of its unfortunate and dependent ones, whom, according to the sayings of the Groat Teacher, we have always with us. The seed of the home has been sown rich soil. It is bound to grow and yield a good crop. The u mount of the will depend on the amount that is under cultivation. Tho first step for the home is to pro- portunity to names down thropists. We have given here a very small synopsis. To give a minute explana tiou how to make the home a success and enduring would require volumes, but this is enough for the thoughtful, honest philanthropist. Any person, whether a member of the K. G. or not, can add to this endowment for the home by becoming a member of the home. The membership fee of $100 cash is not desired at this time, and may not be needed by the management for many years; they would rather have the notes or due bills on forms furnished by them on application to the secretary of the home, Emma E. Schmidt, Freeport, 111. The following are the members of the home from the 5th up to the 22d of Febru ary, 1900i W. W. Krapej Freeport. Emma G. Krape, Freeport. Rev. Chas. C. Snyder, Riverside, 111.

To the people of Freeport, I will say that while the home by charter at the present time is located in Freeport, Stephenson county, Illinois, there is no certainty that it will be permanent until the home owns lands and buildings. It takes some little time to do this, but for Freeport's interest the surest and safest, and best plan is to have plenty of members from Freeport and vicinity. A hint to the wise is sufficient.
