TE lt M "TIL KIP MYSTERY.
I'MMI by F wry Lodge but Hardly Any
One Knows Definition.
The term "tiler" is one used in al
most every sec-rot society, and yet, ask
any secret society mun its meaning
and he usually will have to plead Igno
rance. The dictionary gives the word
an origin In the word "tile," the cov
ering of a house, am. the derived
meaning ls to cover, or keep secret.
Thus it applies to the outer guard,
who stands at the outpost of secrecy
of a lodge.

The Benevolent and Protective Or

in 1867. by a band of members of the

The order was Christened by Charles
Vivian, the actor, and the name of tbe
in ?mal (Elk) used because it ls fleet
nf foot, strong of limb, timorous of
toing wrong and never known to en
gage in combat, except to defend its
young and to protect the weak and
defenceless. A clearer conception of I
the objects of the order, the pen fails
to record. Thc impression exists with I
many-some through ignorance. oth-|
ers through narrowness of mind-that !
the body ie composed principally of a
frivolous fun-loving set of men.
For the uninformed we desire to say
that a more mistaken idea never pre
vailed. The principles of the order
are such that men of every faith, no
matter how radically opposed to each
other, can approach our altar and
clasp hands over our book of faith.
True, a decided social feature exists,
but it is secondary in the minds of the
members and is indulged in to make
our mystic band one of true brother
iiood, where only good feeling exists,
and not for the worldly or outside
idea merely to enjoy tbe benefit of as
sociation among those that feel it in
cumbent upon themselves to extend re
lief as unfortunately exists with many
instit ut ions that arrogate to them
selves ail virtues and no faults, that
do all that must be done consistent
witb straight-laced ideas, and who are
sought but seldom seek.
In the strict sense of the term, our
order is a secret one, secret, however,
as to the internal workings of the body
in the lodge room and thc chatty dla
rpensed. hut in no othe respect; our
door? arc wide open at all times with
Brotherly Love, the animating inf lu
ence, glaringly greeting the stranger.

The first lodge of Elks was organ
ized May 17th, 1858. The order is
distinctly American, and applicants for
membership are limited to white male
citizens of the United States, of sound
mind and body of good character, who
must believe in .the existence of a Su
Some ot the purposes of the. order
are to promote the welfare and en
hance the happiness of Its members, to
quicken tho spirit of American pat
riotism ; to cultivate good fellowship,
?nd Inculcate the principles of char
ity, justice, brotherly love and fidel
ity. Lodges ot the order are not
permitte?* to be instituted tn cities of
less thr* five thousand Inbabtltants,
yet. In spite of this restriction and the
careful discrimination that ls used tn
passing upon tho eligibility of candi
dates, Elkdom during tho past few
years has been blessed with a most
remarkable growth, both- In the num
ber of lodges and the membership of
the Individual lodges, and' there' are

Ingeleven. Prom the beginning the
order bas sought to link its destiny
with that of oar country, .and has
made the flag of our nation the symbol
of Its crowning virtue-Fidelity
Due perhaps to the fact that
there are no lodges of the order In the
smaller towns, Elkdom In years gone
by has been subjected to unmerited
and unjust criticism by provincial and
narrowmlnded carpers. Tbe wonder
ful growth of the order attests the fact
that ita cardinal principles are a finn
foundation to build upon, utterly false

the real objects of the order have be

grace the pulpits of churches'all over
