and while a couple of tourniquets
were applied the blood was still

bad one. Tones cut his knee badly

harder for the fires to spread. The

rule, were either cloudy or toggy,
and the afternoons were clear.
Elsewhere up to the beginning of

Odd Fellows in every part of the
United States, but especially in
New Jersey, are deeply interested
in the crusade which has been be
gun by Wesley B. Stout, grand
master of the grand lodge of New
Jersey, againss all saloon-keepers,
bartenders and gamblers who are
members of the order.
The grand master has started in
to drive all such members out of
craft. This means, if carried out,
the expulsion of about 3,5oo men
in New Jersey. Stout is acting
under the law passed by the sov
ereign lodge of Odd Fellows in
1805, but which has never hereto
fore been enforced.
Kach lodge is given until August
2o to notify all saloon-keepers, bar
tenders and gamblers to abandon
such pursuits. The failure of the
men to quit such business will be
followed by their dismissal from,
the lodge. Many saloon-keepers
ara threatening suit against tho
lodge if they are expelled.
The saloon element in the New
Jersey Oddfellows has been growing-so
rapidly as to threaten the in
terests of the order. Portland
