THE ELEVEN u'CLoCK TtfAST
"The ll o'clock toast," symbolized
by the position of the hands on the
Elks clock dial, originated in 1868 in
this wise: lt had bern the habit of
the members along late in'the evening
-usually about ll o'clock-to begin
breaking up the meetings and leav
ing. Usually there was some word
of adieu to those remaining and it was
r-uggested that the formality of drink
ing a toa:t to the absent brothers
would bc appropriate.
The idea Was accepted an done of
thc best known rites of Elkdom was
instituted. The singing of "Auld
Lang Syne" as the members crossed
hands, originated about th ir time.-This
also is* ope of thc ritualistic proceed
ings of Tammany Hall and before that

THE JOLLY ( 011K8
. Tlic Jolly Corks, forerunners of the
Ff. P. O. E., derived- the name from a
cork trick, instead of from the burnt
cork of the minstrel, aa often ls
thought. The trick consisted in pre
senting the ihitlate with a cork which
he ' placed on the table before bim ab
the supper folowlng the Initiation, aa
the ether members dirt, and at a signal
he was told to. lift bis cork, being as
sured that the -last one to lift his cork
was; to pay for-tho refreshments.
The int fated merely clapped their
palms over their corks, while tho new
member lifted bis eagerly, determined
not to bo the one to pay. ' AB ho was
tho only one to lift his cork, necessari
ly he was- the lost-and had to buy.
The. pork Idea was carried further
until finally any member caught with
out a cork on bis person had to buy. It
ls paid that the members even. pro?
doced their corks at a. .wedding ot one
of their number, but he, not caught
napping, immediately fished one out.of
bib coat pocket and displayed it as
he marched down the aisle with bis
bride ob hts arm,.
