"The Supreme Lodge" We give
herewith his address.
Those two words wo are obliged to
divide into three Sections, FIRST.
What is it? SECOND WHY IS IS
IT? THIRD, what benefits aro de
rived from the SUPREME BEING
whether it is Lodge or anything
else in existanco?
First let us consider, what is
SUPREME. You will find in
Websters Dictionary, that SUP
REME is tho Highest and greatest
being: underwritten GOD. I shall
not dwell upon the last word or
last sentence rather, because this
is not a religous gathering. The
fact however, remains that it' is the
highest and greatest being. This
informs us what it is. The second
Question is, WHY IS IT? or in
plain words what do wo want of a
SUPREME? I tell you my hearers,
that tho Steam plow might as well
say to tho ono that repairs it
STOP. I can go ahead now. dont
hammer at mo any more. The Ser

Please dont use mo so often, I have

ations, you have twisted mo and
hammered me while I was in good
and hot humor, but please dont
torture me any more when lam cold
and hard hearted. The Mechanic,
The Precher, they aro the SUP-
REMES over the Work they areJ
performing, without them they
would not exist, Wo could not ex
ist without a Supremo Lodge. Our
County Could not exist Without a

Deny it from tho Knowledge wo
have, Every Knowledge is good
and beneficial, and it is our duty
and interest to know all thdro is
knowablo in everything soon as
we can. All tho sciences are valu
able and full of interest. So aro
the arts, the History of their de
velopments is instructive and pre
cious, the more MEN know of
HISTORY, GEOLOGY, PHILO
LOGY, ASTRONOMY, ARCHI
TURE, CHEMISTRY, INDUST
RY, and all other sciences and arts
tho better it will bo for tho world,
but it is not necessary for us ALL
to havo EXPERTJinowledge as a
matter of fact it is an imposibility,
It is sufficient for tho few to be ex
perts to teach and guide tho Many,
THE SUPREME LODGE IS OUR
GUIDE. WHY DO WE NEED A
Supreme Lodge. WHY INDEED.
Turn but for a moment your thou
ghts to the Mechanism of the
boundless UNIVERSE, all moving
in obedience to the LAW of GRA
VITATION which LAW IS SUP
REME then come back to the little
earth and look at man in his not
hingness, Boasting of his impor
tance over evoryboby else around
him, that ho alone was the sole
object of creation, How utterly con
temptible ho appears, NATURE
the Supreme, Tho JEHOVAH, The
GOD, Tho whatever name you wish
to. call it is a Stupendous WHOLE,
Our Earth but a speck, Man but an
ATOM, all tho living World Cor
related, each ANIMAL, and
PLANT giving and receiving sup
port from all, then and only then,
may we see, that each and every
living thing is tho equivalent of
all. others, man in reality no
greater, no higher no more impor
tant in the Mechanical UNI
VERSE than tho DOGFLY,
STAR-FISH, MOLUSK or other
animate forms, all came into being
by the same process, livo in tho
same way, go out in like manner
to. live no more, Seen from this
standpoint, mans duty to himself
and all the world around him, may
be summed up in tho following
three words, F. C. &. B. FRIEND
SHIP, CHARITY and BENE
VOLENCE, and CHARITY being
above all it at once becomes tho
SOLID foundation of our order, A
foundation laid for us by the SUP
REME LODGE, Do good to all
living beings, no harm to anything
that breathes whatever others may
do, Let US as good PYTHIAN
KNIGHTS ever be mindfull of
these rules while conducting our
selves in obedience to the SUP
REME LODGE. Whilst wo are
here and wo can, let us give all we
can tothe service of man in this
world, tomake the best possible use
of this present world, is the best
possible preparation for another.
If all men were to combine
their skill, efforts, and enthusiasm,
to carry out these precepts tho
Hapiness in this world would be
beyond conception, and a bettor
heaven could not bo found and
should not be desired.
I thank you for the. Honor .MR.

COPENHAGEN, January 80. The accession of Prince Frederick
to tho throne of Denmark, under the title of Frederick VIII., has been
This afternoon cables announced the death of the aged King
Christian of Denmark, the ''father of Kings," and perhaps tho best
beloved monarch in Europe. Of the Danish royal family, tho Search
light of January 13, said:
Christian IX. The King of Denmark is the patriarch of European
royalty. He is the head of a family of which no less than four mem
bers are seated upon thrones of the Old World, while the lines of his
relationship extend into most of the more prominent courts.
A forbear of monarchs Christian is not himself the son of a king.
In fact, his late wife, as Princess Louise of Hesse-Cassel, stood nearer
to tho throne than he did when they were married in 1842. Ho waB
the fourth son of Duko William of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg.
His wife was a niece of King Christian VIII. When tho
matter of tho Danish succession was under discussion by tho Great
Powers she renounced her rights in favor of her husband, who was
made, by virtue of a treaty concluded in London on May, 1852, tho
next in lino to Frederick VII., who at that time was reigning.
Christian IX. succeeded to tho throne on tho death of Frederick,
Novembor 15, 1863. He found it an uncomfortable seat because of
gloomy auspices, and ho would have abdicated but for the good cheer
and advice of tho queen, whoso influence saved to Europo ono of its
most popular and respected monarchs.
Two of Christian's daughters were called to wear imperial crowns.
Princese Marie Dagmar became tho Empress Maria Feodorovna of
Russia. She was widowed before her older sister, Alexandra, married
to the Prince of Wales, became England's queen and India ,s empress.
Christian's first-born son, Prince Frederick, upon whoso head tho
orown will rest when the old king passes away, has been preceded in
the ranks of reigning royalties by his younger b rother, and also by
his own second so. Prince William, tho second occupant of a throne
several months before his father became the King of Denmark.
Two of Christian's grandsons are reigning monarchs. One of thorn,
Nicholas II., wears the imperial crown of Russia. Tho other, known
as Prince Charles until tho voice of a free peoplo called him to rule
them, as Haakon VII., King of Norway.
Through his youngest son, Prince Waldemar, King Christian is
connected with the House of Orleans which once ruled in France, that
prince having married a daughter of tho Duke of Chartres. The crown
of Bulgaria was offered to Waldemar in 188G, but the prospect did not
prove sufficiently attractive to allure him.
Besides being father-in-law to Edward VII. of England, King
Christian is allied with the house of Hanover by tho marriage of his
third daughter, Princess Thyra, to the son of tho ex-King of Hanover,
who now bears tho English title of Duke of Cumberland.
Through the marriage of King
Grand Duchess Olga of Russia, tho
relationship of father-in-law to a member of the Romanoff family, which
house is headed by his grandson, the Czar.
