that all just claims had been prompt
J. H. Brown, the Grand Master of
Exchequr made an unusually good
report of his office. The report of
Dr. S. S. Caruthers, the Secretary
Treasurer of the Pythian Temple
Commission showed that the lodges
throughout the etate were proud of
the magnificent property owned by
the order and the membership is
ready to push the cause of the com
mission in every way possible.
The Grand Lodge held Memorial
services in memory of the late Grand
Prelate, Rev. J. W. Tate of Knoxville.
J. Milton Easterling spoke feelingly
of the departed brother as did Knight
J. C. Napier and others. T. H.
Hayes, Treasurer of the Endowment
Board, made his annual report which
was short but interesting. The re
port of the Grand Attorney was high
ly satisfactory to the Grand Lodge.
He stated that lawsuits were less
frequent. He pointed out that he
had been able to settle difficulties
without going into the courts.
As requested by the mayor of Nash
ville, the Grand Lodge in session at
the time stopped its work and stood
with bared heads for the period of
one minute. At the end of that per
iod Dr. S. S. Caruthers led in singing
Very little transpired at the night
session in the way of business, but at
8 o'clock p. m., Volunteer Company
No. 5, U. R., under the personal com
mand of Brig.-Gen. Taylor, made a
fine display of their ability in the
drill. The Grand Worthy Counsellor,
Mrs. Cora E. Burk, was present, Mrs.
Kate Wilson with her Juveniles and
many others were present. In a
brilliant talk, Prof. J. T. Bridgeforth
welcomed the Uniform Rank and the
ladies. The Grand Worthy Counsel
lor expressed herself as being in
hearty accord with all departments
of the order, especially the Uniform
Rank. General Taylor and others
spoke. After this military display,
the ladies of the Court of Calantho
served refreshments to the visitors in
the parlors of the Y. M. C. A. Aside
from important legislation the Grand
Lodge was favored by a visit from
Miss Fredella Thomas, a recent grad
uate of State Normal school. Miss
Thomas was educated by the Pyth
ians of this state. Dr. S. S. Caruthers
chairmang of the Committee on
Widows and Orphans introduced the
young lady to the Grand Lodge.
One of the most interesting reso
lutions to come before the Grand
Lodge was that introduced by Dr. W.
"Be it resolved, that we urge our
people everywhere to raise more food
to make every sacrifice demanded by
our government. Let us buy War
Savings Stamps, let us purchase
Liberty Bonds, let us contribute to
every cause we need the support of
Whereas, our boys are to fight and
are even now fighting side by side
with the liberty loving nations of the
world and are receiving a man's
chance in this struggle, therefore be
it resolved that when the war ends
and God Almighty shall sheath his
sword and declare that wars shall be
no more, that we expect and demand
every protection for our wives, our
children and our loved ones."
