Monday evening Fraternity Lodge, No. 262, F. & A. M., of this city, was visited by a large number of brothers from Phoenix Lodge, of Ypsilanti, and the Master Mason's degree was conferred by the visitors on Harry W. Clark, superintendent of the University hospital. The work was admirably done and at its conclusion the brothers present marched to the drill room where a fine banquet had been spread under the direction of E. V. Hangsterfer. One hundred and seventy hungry fellows found seats at the tables and did justice to the creature comforts of this life. Dr. F. G. Novy, W. M. of Fraternity Lodge, introduced as toastmaster of the evening Bro. Junius E. Beal, and that gentleman with his inexhaustible fund of good stories kept the amusement ball a-rolling as he introduced in rapid succession W. S. Capenter, W. M. of Phoenix Lodge, Prof. L. D. Wines, of Ann Arbor, Walter Pack, of Ypsilanti, Harry W. Clark, the newly made brother, L. C. Goodrich, of Ann Arbor, H. S. Horner, of Ypsilanti, M. T. Woodruff. of Ypsilanti, Prof. Peckham, of Ann Arbor, H. B. Dodsley, W. M. of Golden Rule Lodge, Ann Arbor, and John Comstock, of Ypsilanti. It was 12:25 a. m. when the gathering broke up and the Ypsilantians took their special motor for home. There were just 63 in the Ypsilanti party.
