MORRIS STERN IS CHARMED. Beautiful Consistory Pendant Present-ed by His Associates. Morris Stern, who has been bookkeeper and manager of Sol Bloom's Deadwood store, was presented with a handsome charm last ?ight by his fellow Bloom employes. It was a magnificent jewel, in the form of a Prussian eagle, emblematical of the thirty-second degree of Scottish rites of Ma sonry, and it came from D. Kahn, manager of Bloom's Btore at Sheridan, Wjyomlng; Ed. Gavin, manager of the Sturgis branch, and C. H. Hyman, of the Deadwood store. The jewel was presented by Henry Frawley in a few chosen remarks, on the eve of Mr. Stern's departure from Deadwood. There was a happy assemblage of friends of Mr. Stern last night to bid farewell and God-speed. Some twenty five got together, and the evening was passed with a lunch and refreshments and cigars. Some of those present were in a reminiscent mood, and found ready listeners while they looked into a Havana haze and told of the doings of an earlier period. They all testified to a sincere regret at Mr. Stern's departure, and they were profuse in wishing him success in his new location. . Mr. Stern has resided in Deadwood since 1877, and be has been manager of Bloom's Den d wood store since 1878. He and his family will leave Deadwood to-morrow for Chicago, and there is a genuine feeling of sadness at their leaving.
