Why Females Can Not Be
The Eastern Star, a paper devoted to
the exposure of all secret orders, gives
the iollowmg reasons why females
can not bo made Free Masons;
"Of course, by the word "females" we
understand that division of the human
family to be meant to which our mothers,
wives, sisters and daughters belong. Nay,
verily, they could not -humiliate themselves
sufficiently to be made Masons if
they had to be initiated and passed in the
same manner as the lords of creation are;
that is to say, were reduced -to a semi-nude
condition, hoodwinked and with a
rope around the neck or bare arm led
around the room with the left drawers-leg
rolled up and the left breast bared, to
be admired or pitied, as the case might
be. The very suggestion of such a degradation
is not many removes from a slander
on the fairest among ten thousand
and altogether lovely. A man whose
wife had been raised to the third or sub
lime degiee of Masonry, in the usual
mode of procedure in such cases, would
have no difficulty in obtaining a divorce
instanter. Or should there be any hesitancy
in granting the petition, the indignant
husband would only have to explain
to the court the position assumed by the
candidate preparatory to receiving the
Master's word, and the document would
be issued forthwith.
