Main 1260 Impressive Services on Sunday at the Elks Lodge of Sorrow Before a Large Audience Millinery Bakersneld Finest Shop What was perhaps the most Interesting memorial services ever held by the local lodge of Elks took place in the Bakersfleld Opera House Sunday afternoon in the presence of a large audience, which evinced a keen Interest in the exercises lasting for more moro than two hours. A charm was ad'ilcul to the pretty setting on the stage by large stands of calla Hlies and white erysanthemums, but the decorative feature was not emphasized this year, the committee preferring to utilize the appropriation In assembling an orchestra of merit, and in this, under the direction of the musical director, Leo Hirahfeld, it was eminently successful, the music of the day being of a high order and proving a delight to all. An inovatlon in the arrangement -of the official chairs was observed, that of the Leading Knight being raised In the center of the opera hanse and the Lecturing and Loyal Knights being provided for In each box on either side of the stage. The American flag was a feature of tho dec-orations at each chair. It was Just 2:30 when the members of the order, marching two and two, entered the opera hotfse and occupied tho chairs reserved for them. The j Exalted Ruler, Chas. A. Lee. without preface, opened the lodge according to the beautiful ritual and In the opening ode congregation choir and orchestra joined. The roll call of the dead by Secretary Meroney was very Impressive. After Invocation by Rev. D, M. Crabtree of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, "Praise Ye the Father' 1 was beautifully rendered by the mixed chorus, consisting of Miss Jane Barber, Mrs. Clarence Wilson, Mrs. J. H. Harding, Mrs. O. L. Gotchett, E. C. Wilson, Clarence Fuller, Robert Smith and Roy Pathe. The Eulogy. The eulogy by Rev. Crabtree was an artistic masterpiece, the speaker expressing beautiful thoughts In eloquent words, and paying high tribute to the departed members of the order. "He is not dead but sleepeth" was the thought on which was based the sentiment that those who have gone before live forever In memory. They were the words of the Master and He followed them by restoring life, an<l they are the words of the Elks in connection with those whose lift activities are over. The annual Lodge of Sorrow with its memorial exercises Is not tardy justice, for justice is one of the tenets of the order, a cardinal principle which the loyal Elk seeks to live up to in his every day relations with his follow men. Recalling the list of names of the :l"ad, the speaker paid tribute to them MS men, but dwelt -chiefly with those who have passed out of this Hfo (luring the past year. T. H. Fogarty, Jns. ,. DepauII, A. O. ForreH, James Goodwin, J. ,T. Anderson anrt M. Wangen- helm were each the subject of individual eulogy, Mini some of the tributes paid to well beloved friends made more than one eye moist In that vast gathering. Tho reverend speaker in closing paid that, he thanked Ood he was the representative of a church -that recognized that such men as James Goodwin. Mel Wangenholm anrt the others, men who, if their lives be railed worldly by zealots, still lived them in such manner, In their relations with their fellows, as to earn the approval of the Exalted Ruler of the Universe. Mr. Devlin's Address. The vocal solo, "Beyond the Gates," by Miss Jane Barber, was most effectively rendered and R, A. Hayden recited "Thanatopals" most impressively, following which the orator of the day, Hon. Frank Devlin, delivered a most earnest and interesting dls- ourse, which held the closest attention of the audience. The speaker first touched upon tho beautiful custom of the order in holding memorial services each year, and he drew a strong picture of the 25.0,000 members gathered together nt that hour In thousands of rities in tho United States from the Atlantic to the Pacific, in Porto Rico, in Hawaii and even in the far,off Island of Luzon. In every place where there is a lodge of Elks the same sen- tlments were being expressed, the same scenes enacted as marked the local exercises. And these annual services have all tho solemnity of tlu; funeral service with none of the sadriPHH. said i.ho speaker. They appeal to all humanity In that they touch upon a trait that IB inherent in all human kind, young or old, philanthropist or cynic, the wish not to he forgotten by their fellows, [f .nnual lodge of sorrow acrora- i>d nothing else, it would still bo Justified from this one view point. The time of holding the memorial services Is also appropriate, coming as It does between Thanksgiving day, when the nation returns thanks, and tho celebration of the birth of the Savior. H Is In a way like a family reunion, where all the members, sons and daughters and parents come to- K'Mhor on a holiday. There Is gladness over tho reunion, there Is sadness over the vacant chair and there Is determination of the living to supply the plane nf the one who Is dead. The same Ifne of thought IB nppllrahle to the FJUs in their relation to memorial I , nut the orator declared there la nn- i other still more Important feature. ,'hat of making men think. Elks are i for the most part busy men—like oth- I'M's losing sight of the serious qiies- i Mon of the life after this, nnd memor- ' lal day Inspires thought. Every Elk subscribe? to the belief that there Is an Kxnlted Ruler of the Universe, and rebellious!}* refuses to accept a view that float h ends all. No matter upon what teaching this Is based, whether' i Inculcated by the Presbyterian or Methodist mother, the Catholic priest, or In the synagogue. It Is still the view of every Klk, and memorial day I serves Its purposes In renewing the teachings* of youth and inspiring thoueht for the future, aids in reaching the conclusion that life rather !s the hour of toil anr! death the rool of the evening. The speaker dwelt uprm Charity one of the cardinal principles of the order, and rnforred tn the practical example of charity hy the people of Rakersfleld on Saturday, an event, he said, which would draw the attention of the state to this city. In a strong pica he urged every loyal Elk to renew his obligations to the order, to live up to its teachings, and closed with an eloquent tribute to the order itself. Knch musical number of the orchestra was n notable one, and the audience visibly manifested Its enjoyment. The impressive services ended with the closing ceremonies and ode . by the lodge and benediction by Rev. j Crabtree. The officers of the lodge are: Chas. A.
