"My Brothers: The lessons I
which our newly made brother this
night received recalls to each one 1
of us the tenets of our obligations. I
The beautiful story of Masonry can
be read in every line of life. It j
teaches us benevolence; it teaches
us the love of truth; it shows us'
how to avoid the obstacles in the ,
way of the higher perceptions of
truthful investigation; it invests us
with a proper spirit of broadmiuded-1
ness and calls forth our best sym
pathies; in short, it enlarges and
elevates the human mind. It
teaches us how to circumscribe our
passions in that we must not be
furious at our brother if he has a
wider view from the mountain top
than we ourselves have from a
"Masonry is a character builder. ,
It teaches the fulfillment of life's j
beatitudes in the fullest sense; it
teaches us incommunicable proprie
ties which arc associated with and
make the gentleman; in other '
words, it teaches a human being I
the manners which common polite
ness demands from each one of us
to the other.
"It enlivens the somewhat stem
countenances of ordinary nature
and plants the flowers and fruits of
life in the garden of the soul and
fills all nature with love and beauty;
it teaches us to labor and appreciate
labor's reward as well as the bene
fits and pleasures of refreshments.
"All these beautiful lessons of
Masonry are for the purpose of pre
paring the way for that affirmative
principle of life so necessary in the
experiences and vicissitudes of hu
man affairs. Life at best is but a
series of surprises, and Masonry
teaches us how to avoid being
startled and enables us to properly
dispose of each one as it comes.
"So, let us always keep our obli
gation fresh in our memory and the
tenets of the Order, as indicated,
glowing in our hearts. Then,
