Dr. Aaron Baldwin, the Treasurer of Almas

bers of the latter organization are principally

that nothing was left out.
A rehearsal of the officers of Almas Temple

nity was offered several lay members who wero

At the communication of New Jerusulum
Lodge Thursday evening Past Master Fiegen -baum
was presented with a Past Master's jewe
by Past Grand Master E. H. Chamberlain In his
usual easy and happy manner. At tho con
clusion of this pleasant incident Past Grand
Master Dingman took the floor and presented,
Bro. Chamberlain, who had iust unlshea his
presentation speech to Bro. Flegenbaura , with
a magntueent cold-headed cane. iiro. Una moer

Preparations for the Shrine s6ance on tho
30th instant are progressing in a satisfactory
manner to all parties concerned, and the class
of candidates will be unusually large, interesting,
and 6elf-sacrificing, all of which attributes will
be duly appreciated by the Initiators, who aro
always desirous of witnessing a proper amount
of respect and decorum on tho part of tho
initiates, and endeavor to impress upon them
the dignity of the degree and the gravity of tho
situations In which the requirements of the ritual
at times is apt to placo them. The Shrine de
cree is one that cannot bo fully described or
analyzed; to be fully appreciated in all Its
beauty and significance It must bo seen
(some authorities go further and une
quivocally say felt) to be fully understood.
Unlike other degrees tbe ritualism of which
fs-hased purely on symbols, tho . Order of the
Shrine needs no exhaustive explanation of its
Intents, purposes, or results. It explains It
self, and the weight of its arguments is felt by
tho least sensitive of its candidates as he pro
gresses step by step on his road to tho definite
result of a complete and thorough understand
ing of all its principles. The dazzling radiance
of Its mysteries does not, therefore, burst upon
the'eandidato in a blinding lightning flash of a
sudden disclosure, but burns Itself slowly and
by degrees into his soul and fills up the cavern
of his ignorance with tho subdued and mellow
light of incontestiblo and well-authenticated
facts, the value of which has been established
by unnumbered ages and countless centuries of
adequate proof and testimony. The grandeur
oi us ntuai witu us weaitn or pageantry, the
maguificencc of Its tableaux, tho brilliancy of
its costuming, and tbe beauty of its eloquent
verbiage is not intended to oyerawo or dismay,
but in its very completeness and minuteness of
detail endeavors to teach and expound in a
practical, Illustrative, and' systematic mannor;
and if tbe truth of this statement is doubted
why, ask any Shrlner and see If he will tell you
