ars All over the country the anni ver
aary waa observed by the lodges. Seventy
aix years ago Thomas Wildey, an English*
man who had located in Baltimore and
was lonely because Englishmen were not
popular then on account of the recent war,
proposed to John Weloh, John Duncan,
John Cheatham and Kicbard Kushworth
that they relieve monotony of life by organ
ising an Odd Fellows' lodge resembling
the one he had belonged to in England.
April 26th, 1819, these five men met at
the Seven Stars tavern and instituted the
first lodge, which they called the Wash
ington Lodge, No. 1. The five men were
■ot well edao4ted or particularly refined,
and thev bad little influence in Baltimore,
but Wildey was a born leader of men, and
before he died, in 1861, the order he had
founded bad a membership of 200,000.

in this useful appliance. The umbrella
that has so long been in use has always re
quired the use of two hands to open it.
Henceforth the umbrella is to be opened
with one hand only: Press a spring close
to the handle and the umbrella opens it
self. A spring has been released which
quickly aud firmly opens it. and keeps it
open; at the same time adding to its
strength; The addition is eminently
simple, and the extra cost over that of the
ordinary umbrella is only trifling.
—The tree pruner, who does not really
know what pruning moans nor what a tree
requires and needs for healthful and
beantifull growth, is now abroad on his
annual tour of mutilation and ruin. Mag
nificent stretches of shade and leafy splon
dor are wrecked by a few hours' backing
and sawing, and the tree pruner looks with
delight on the unsightly branches and
limbs his industry has kindly permitted to
survive destruction. Trees should not be
spoiled of every twig and limb cut of even
with the trunk. Nature intends no such
process to follow the grandeur and glory
of years of growth and upbuilding. Bat

tree and affords, aud because he does not
