More Than One Hundred Fifty GueeU Pretent—Open Garrison In Hall—Banquet la Randolph Houafi—Excellent Ad- dresies—Bandaome Decoration*. • One, two, three, .Obedience, Honesty, Loyalty, Hurrah 1 , : Such are the words of the Knights of the Globe cheer, which was given with & will on several occasions at the third annual banquet of Sterling, Garrison, No. 83, Tuesday evening. The occasion was an eventful 'one and those who were present will never forget It. The Knights of the Globe Hall was filled With the members of the order and their friends, 'and shortly after 8 o'clock the assembly was called'to order by President W. N. Haskell. The exercises consisted of an open .Garrl son. This' was an entirely new feature and it was enjoyed' by' all who were present. The hall was; handsomely decorated for the occasion' with flags and bunting. Back of the President's chair a large flag was splendidly draped each pillar in the hall was artistically twined with bunting and a fine frieze of flags adorned the walls. The committee which had this matter in charge have every reason to be proud of their work. President Haskell.ina fewwords.cor dlally welcomed the guests of the even- Ing, after -which the regular order of exercises was carriea out. A unique feature of the evening was the reading of the minutes of the previous meeting by William McDonald. The article was a "fake" affair and contained many capital bints upon the members of the order. The salute of the flag was 1m pressive and showed clearly the patriotic feeling of the Garrison. The address to Old Glory was delivered by Supreme Judge Samuel Harvey. The salute was-given by the Knights, standing, with the' Knights • of the Globe cheer. .This was followed with "America" by the audience, after which the addresses under the "Good of the Order" were given. •Four Flue Addrexaei. •. Valiant Knight W. T. Tuttle spoke of the object. The Knights of the Globe, said he, is a social, military and charitable fraternity, composed of men from the best classes of people, physically, mentally, morally and socially Its objects are to promote fraterna f eeling.soclal and intellectual advance ment, to cultivate obedience and to develop chivalrous manhood and knightly honor. The speaker referred to the insurance department, showing the many advantages it gives. The address was delivered in. fine language and was very interesting, .••.'• '"•>:•. ' Thomas St.'John, Valiant Knight, gave a fineihlstory of the order, cleverly written after • the manner of the book of Chronicles, which gave a good idea of its origin and growth. The paper was truly clever; it told of the excellent work of the present Captain General, W. W, Krape, of Freeport, and of the early struggles of the Ster ling Garrison. "Membership" was the subject of the address by the Rev. Cass Davis", Valiant Knight. He spoke of the character the applicants for memberahlp in the Garrison must give evidence of and of the severe tests that are given them 1 as to their honesty and uprightness. The order is made up of the best men in the land; best socially, intellectually and, morally. It is composed of a select body, not everyone being able to gain admittance. During the address the speaker mentioned the order, known as the Daughters of " ie Globe, and told of Ijhe efforts to organize a garfiaon in this city in the near future. The time for this is now ripe and 1 it ie expected that a garrison will soon be at work here. Valiant Knight U, S. Evans then spokeon the "Future." He told of the success of the order in the past and believes that the future will be still more ^ratifying, As a reason for this he holds up the character of the members of the order, It is made up of men, jood and true, who will never be satisfied to remain idle, An order founded upon the principles of patriotism and loyalty to country cannot fail to make rapid progress. The address was Mr. Evans' maiden effort. It was excel* ently prepared and finely delivered. Ihe gentleman received many words of praise and is to be congratulated ipOU hid SUC86S8, Auuuisl Fivato to be MfiW H*u>>.

This will be a great day for Sterling and Bock Falls and it is hoped that the people will take an interest in the matter and help to make the occasion a grand success. Among other speakers, the Rev. C. 0. Snyder, of Riverside, will be here. The gentleman. Is well known among the Knights of the Globe and the .order is to be congratulated upon Securing his services upon this occasion. UANQUET AT RANDOLPH HOUSE. Splendid Itepast Served and Fine Speeches Oiren. At 10 o'clock the banquet was announced. The guests had all assembl ed at the Randolph House and soon the greater number were seated about the handsomely decorated tables. The dining room was a place of beauty. It was handsomely adorned with flags and bunting in great profusion; the design was artistic and it reflected a great deal of credit upon those who .had the decoration in charge. The divine blessing was invoked by W. T. Tuttle. The menu was elaborate and finely served. It was as follows: •< Menu. Escallopcil Oysters Cold Turkey -Cold Ham Chicken Salad Jx>bster Salad Itolls • Olives . ., Pickles' Assorted Cake Fruit Vanilla Ice Cream : Coltoe.f When the repast was finished, the assembly was called to order by the king of toast > masters, Col. Moses Dillon. The colonel has not been seen in this capacity for some time and all were glad tofcear his voice again and to laugh at the .clever introductory speeches, such as only he is capable of making. .,.. Haskell'» Clever Speech. ,, The-first subject.wasVOurEmblem,'. 1 responded to by Sir Knight Walter N. Haskell. He said-that it would be necessary to reveal some of the secrets of the order in order to talk intelligent ly on his subject. He spoke of emblems in general, saying that they all mean a great deal'to the wearer. The little bronze button, worn by the members of the GranArm y of the Republic, means more tp the wearer than any other insignia save the banner, in honor of which it is worn, the American flag. Mr. Haskell then exhibited to his hearers the Knights of the Globe badge and* proceeded to explain Its mysteries. The effort was one of the cleverest things that bas been heard in tlon was rediculously funny, both in the subject matter and the manner oi delivery, Mr. Haskell has a^dry-hu mor about him that kept his audience in continual laughter/ The gentleman made a decided hit and it will be some time before the capital address will be forgotten by those who heard it, PJuoky (little Greece. "Greece^ was the topic assigned to Judge H, C. Ward. The gentleman said that it would take volumns to tell about this little country. All of history, all of art, all of literature had its birth in Greece. The Christian religion is extant to today because the writings of the Propbejts were preserved in the Greek language. Greece has always had to a strong degree, the prin piples of progress. It has always been a lover of peace, but never could be trampled upon with impunity. Mr, Ward paid a glowing tribute to the present attitude of the plucky little country towards its neighbors, the murdering Turks, and cried shame upon. the larger nations who have not the moral stamina to take a similar action. "God Bless King George,"said hei "and confound bis enemies," At the/close of the excellent address, Alex McNeil arose and proposed the Knights of the G16be cheer tor plucky little Greece. It was given with a will. , Culm wad Her Troubles. ~ Sir Knight Thomas Diller gave an In- strnctive and interesting address on "Cuba." He teld of the size of the lit- tie Island, showing that its population Is abouf ten thousand less, than, that of the State of Illinois. He gave a good idea of its location and of its splendid resources. He.told of the ups and downs of the Cuban's, giving « clear idea of the conditions which have led up to the present state of things. The main cause of the present war, said he, a the fact that the Cubans have been heavily taxed without being allowed any represaatatioo. He told of the schemes of Generals Marti sad , sod'of how? th# w*e atamd oat The Sunday School SongfM-Bftd Manner* of Church Uoen—Sermon bjr »«".

A good audience of American residents and visitors. For half an hour after opening, they came dropping in. Bad manners for careless people to disturb devotions of others. Why do. ushers show these laggards to the front place, and not give the worst seats in the synagogue. Make laziness odious. Dr. Butler based his address on Luke 10:17. He gave a sketch of the misery Mexico has suffered under the rule of Spain, her revolt in 1810, independence in 1821, and the religious work of the country since. Juarez believed that the future prosperity of Mexico depended upon Protestantism. Within last thirty years,-' Presbyterians, Baptists, Congregatlonalists, Quakers, Episcopalians, had established missions and there are now 615 different congregations, 18,000 communicants, 60,000 adherents In Mexico. Much credit Is due the colporteurs of American Tract Society, who distributed bibles and tracts among the people, who gladly received them. As the bull fight comes off this afternoon, and Dr. Butler evidently doubted the ability of the editors to withstand the'temptation, he playfully suggested before the plate was passed.that every wicked editor put into the offering the price of the ticket for the bull fight. I do not believe they did, judging by the plate when~ it passedTVme; That's the world:_a dimerfor charity,a dollarior devi|try. .English service over, church in Spanish. A young Mexican Minister. It sounded odd to hear our old hymns, in a strange language. But we are all Worshipers of the same God, and the same spirit should prevade every thoughtful heart.

Charles Shroeder, of .West Scienc* Kldge, is the hero of the honr. Mr. Shroeder came as near to loeiag ,hlB life in the roaring, foaming depth* of the Elkhorn Tuesday afternoon aa he ever cares to. Not only did he have a halrbreath escape, but he is mtnoa eight dollars worth of tihlckens, a twenty-eight dollar set of new harness, thirty-six] dollars in money, a good suit of clothes,and as far as is known, a team of good horses. The accident happened while fording . th'e Elkhorn. Mr. Shroeder has crossed the creek, going east, early in the afternoon, driving a team of hitched to a light wagon, .and to all appearances the ford was perfectly oafe. Ob the return trip, however, when" out in the middle of the stream, the horsea .'.< suddenly went down, quickly followed by the wagon. The box was floated from its place and Mr. Shroeder waa , compelled to jump for his life. He . grabbed the horses, thinking that'he ', might be able to steer them to shore, ; but his efforts were unavailing;and all • «were borne down the stream for a ^distance of nearly a mile before' any re»", <' lief was obtained. Charley finally suc-\ , . ceeded In extricating himself from the mix-up by grabbing bold of a branch of a tree banging out over the creek. " •' So exhausted was he, that for a time , he was almost unconscious,,. He made . , J^is way to town on foot and told of.«, • the accident. This, morning be and -, several others started out in pursuit ot ;,.>,. the horses which were, when last eaen, struggling with the swift current,of \V the Elkhorn. It baa not been learned,' ^' as yet, whether the search, was a sue-' ;•, •" cess or not. • ,.'•<The accident cannot be accounted . • for; the ford was all right at the time ' '< of the first.crossing, and shortly before ',.<-/'• Mr. Schroeder's return trip, another':??" team had crossed it safely.
