Ji-t.inni.-i1 lomluve of the order of
Knights Templar was inaugurated to
day w 1th a grand parade, which brought
into contrast the 13th and iOth centur
ies mid recalled the age of chivalry,
when Richard Coeur D' Leon and the
no less knightly Saladin battled for the
possession of the holy city, with flut
tering gonfalons and richly compari
soned horses, prancing in gay accou
trements. The striking feature of today's pa
rade was the presence in the line of
the earl of Euston and six other offi
cials of the templar order represent
ing the Knights Templar of England
and Wales. Their distinctive uniforms
attracted special attention.
Joseph Leath of Coeur D' Leon com
mandery, Knoxville, Tenn., dropped
dead during the parade, while starting
to do a knightly act. He was riding in
a, carriage and noticing a comrade -who
seemed almost overcome he stepped
from his carriage to offer him a seat.
As he touched the ground he fell dead
from ail apopletic stroke.
San Francisco, Sept. 6. Ten thou
sand Sir Knights marched for miles
through the gaily decorated city streets
today, inspired by the music of the 40
bands and the cheers of thousands of
spectators, who lined every foot of the
way, crowded windows and doorways,
and filled the grandstand and review
stands erected for the purpose.
The morning of the great parade
broke before the announced starting
time and the . various commanderles
hastened to the assembjy points of their
respective grand divisions.
The parade started in the lieart of
the city, wound in and out of the down
town banking dfstrlcts, thence for 1
blocks ud the main thoroughfare of

tiful boulevard, Vanness avenue, where
a number of grandstands were erected.

Got Something New.
Not since the early '80s, when the
world "electric" leaped into fame with
the arc light, the telephone, and the
trolley car, has a newly discovered
term been so popular as radium and
its derivatives. Already we have radio
cigars, radite, soap, radiumlte, tooth
paste, und so on, just as there used to
be electric soap, electric polish, electric
tooth powder, electric cleaning mate
rial, and even electric silk The prop
ertles of the mysterious radium, of
course, no more enter into the articles
whic h bear that name, or names allied
to it, than soap or silk polish or pow
der was electrified. Yet thenew term,
applied even to old and well known ar
tides, appeals to many people who
don't bother to think what It may or
may not mean.
