Nov. 29— I've Just fatteiii'il King George's purse by buying a glass of ale from him. King George didn't serve it to mo, but I drank it In the "pub" of die Feathers luu In ibis peaceful rillags In Norfolk county. Tho Feathers Inn may not mean much to you but It's unique in this world because it's owned by the King of England serve." Whether this means "1 serve lieer" I can't bo positive, hut the fad remains that they do. And it's downright stalwart stuff, as they used to say in the days when a yeoman was a yeoman. This village is the nearest one to ihe royal estate of Sandringbam, residence of King Kdward and of his queen. Alexandra, who liven there now. Many years ago It was realized It would never do to compel employes of the citato in go 10 miles lo King l.yim lo gel a drink. Knglishmen More than 8,400 homes In Hutchinson and vicinity were visited yesterday afternoon In the Homo Visitation by the teams from Hutchinson churches. Some 27,300 people were listed on the cards by the visitors, and wero given personal Invitations to attend church or Sunday school somewhore. While the purpose of tho visitation was not to gather statistics, some Interesting results are announced. Of tho over 27,000 peoplo visited some 52 per cent claimed church connections, a better percent than the average over the country. Some 12,800 not connected with any Sunday school or church expressed a preference, and indicated an interest. Very Few No Choice Only 55 families reported having no church preference, these representing a total of 165 people, a very small percentage of the total. The cards with tho names of the 27,300 people who expressed a preference for some church but arc not members, were turned over to the ministers of the respective churches this morning at the headquarters at the Chamber ot Commerce. The names of the 55 families which Indicated no church preference were turned over to all the churches. Now the Conservation Albert Thomson, general chairman of the Conservation committee Issued a letter to all the churches thin morning in which he said: "Somo 12.80 peoplo not connocted with nny Sunday school, church or synagogue in this city, express a preference—the greatest opportunity in our history. We now- come to tho most important part— the Conservation. May we make two suggestions: 1. Send a letter to all these people at once, inviting them to at- t • -MI your services, and telling them you and your people will call to see them personally as soon as your large list will permit. Unclose a calendar of all your services—Sunday and week-day, and tell them that Sunday, December 14til. will bo a Special Welcome Day, especially arranged for them. Follow Up the Work. 2. "Organize your forces and assign your cards Just as systematically for your own follow-up work, as this General Homo Vlalta- llon was organized. It Is a fine plan to assign all prospects tor Sunday school by ages In and to department leaders and workers, whero they should go. Have nil these new peoplo visited Just as soon as possible. Thero must be prompt action If you wish good results—as they will not conio Into your organization Just from this one general Invitation. Have all your workers impress upon all these peoplo that Sunday, December 14 th, is just planned especially for them. Prompt, porslstent, personal effort will win many."

Evory morning the children lined up at that outside faucet and took their turns splashing around in the cold water. But they always came to school, the teachers report, with faces clean and shining. They always seemed well nourished, but sadly In need of clothing. What little they wore, though, always was clean. Now tho problem is what to do with them all.

Uxmal, Yucatan, Nov. 20.—Will thu proposed excavations in the ruins of Uxmal reveal tho origin ot Free Masonry? Tho announcement of the project by tho Mexican government, is reviving the hope that tho birthplace of the great fraternity will be discovered in Yucatan's famous Maya City. Uxmal, or tho "city thrice destroyed." was the center of the Maya government and religion. Lo Plongeon held that flu white- robed priests Invented tho tokens, pass words, decorations of the lodges, and the secret symbolism of the Initiation ceremonies to the Masonic degrees. It is possible that tho excavations ot Mexico's Department of Anthropology will prove Ixmal's enormous truncated mound, known as the "House of tin? Seer," to be the world'3 original Masonic Temple. The mystic numbers three, five, and seven, dominate the building plan. Several other emblems of Masonry, including the skull and crosshonos, are sculptured on the walls and cornices. Tho middle chamber faces west, and measures seven metres In length. Rectangular in shape. It outlines the Maya and the Egyptian word for "Universe." Certain archaeologists regard it as the. sanctum lu which tho rites of thu Masonic Third Degree wero first administered. At the base of ibis edifice, Le- Plongeou claimed to have found the broken statue of u priest, who worn an apron with an extended hand. In the Pupul-Vuli, fin: sacred hook of ilia Quiches, a branch of :ho Maya race in Guatemala, there is a description of an iniiiatlon to iho sacred mysteries of Xlhalba. These mysteries are said to rep- lV'sent the earliest form of Free Masonry, but, if so, the tests glv- Haye U.
