deavor to exemplify them bv practical
test, aad if. by the grace of God. it shall
socossfu!Jy carry out this object, they
will feel that their mission has aot been

Aad confident of the success of their
cause, they subsequently added to this
Recognizing the universality of

designed to embrace the world within iu
jurisdiction intended solely aad ooly to
disseminate the greett. rinci plea of friend

"The brightest jewel which it garner
are the tears of widow aad orphans, aad
iu imperative commands are to visit the
homes where lacerated hearts are bleed

brother, bury the dead, care for the

Ia organizing tbe KnigbU of Pvthiaa,
ths objecu were not the presentation of
aew principle, but rather the reviving
aad bnngiag before the public principles
that are almost aa old as the age of man .
They are of divine origin, aad are coez

Thus did the foander of our order, in
choosing the beautiful story of Darnus
and Pythias as the foundation, make
friendship in its broadest sense the cor
ner stone upon which to build s grand,
moral edifice. capable of admittiag the sa
tire human family within lu walls. It is
a brasI comprehensive friendship, con
taining within itself all the noble instincts
of man, having for iu object ths uproot
ing of Innate selfishness from the heart of
man snd planting la iu place the holy
principles of charity snd benevolence.
It U aches us to live honest, temper tie,
virtuous lives, to be generous with the
imperfections of our fellow men, remem
bering that ail have their faulu. all are
liable to err. To alleviate the wants of
brethren in distress, to lighten the bur
dens of their lives, so far as it lies in
their power, to watch by their bedside
when sick snd if possible by kind and
careful nursing restore them to health; if
not, to make their passage from this
world as easy aa possible, that their last
hours on earth may be spent calmly and
peacefully, sad, then accompany them to
the burial place and perform the last asd
rites over the grave, to afford consolation
to the desolate widow and orphan in the
hour of their deep distress. Such are
some of the principles and teachings of
the KuigbU of Pythias With these is it
s matter of astonishment that so many
who had become heartsick at the gross
selfishness of the world, rallied around
our Banner as soon as it was unfurled to
the breeze, and are now disseminating its
principles by carrwng out its teachings
in their intercourse with their feltowaenf
As ths old Pythagorian society showed
the effect of its teaching in tbe lives of
Damon and Pythias, so can our young
order snow the fruits of iu teaching ex
emplified by one of our brother Knights.
I allude to Brother Samuel H Mines, of
old Dominion lodge. No 4 Richmond.
a., who, by his heroic efforts to save
the life of a brother knight, sacri
ficed his own. The story will bear a
thousand repetitions, and should become
as familiar to every true knight as the
story of Damon and Pythias Simuel
H Hines menu all that can be said of
tbe moral hero, the brave knight, the
Pythian friend When the fated Spotts
wood hotel was wrapped in the winding
sheet of lurid flame on the morning of
Dec 5. 1870. and iu passages, rooms and
stairways filled with dense clouds of suf
focating smoke. Brother Hiaes made bis
way through all to a point where he was
safe, and might have escaped with his
life unharmed But personal escape
was aot his object, he was seeking aid to
enaole him to rescue his friend who was
high up la tbe botes. Failing to enlist
assistance, be rushed back with the he
roic purpose of saving that friend or per
iahing in the effort. That was the last
seen of this noble voung man. He and
his friend. Erasmus W. Ross, a brother
knight, perished together.
Ia this nouble deed we have embod
led aad illustrated ia living exam plea a
friendship unsurpassed by anything de
scribed by the pen of fiction or depicted
ia dramatic art. This is no fiction, no
poetic fancy, no sentimental creation
Samuel H Hines di.l not merely hazard
bis hfe, but died to save his friend. It
is an honor and a privilege to have
known such a man or to have lived ia an
age made bright by such aa example, yes.
asd a glorious privilege to belong to the
brotherhood which tausht him such
