It la too lute for us to discuss the prudence of leaving an inheritance to our family. It may bo true that a few wealthy poisons with plo tliorio purses, bank accounts and bouda, may consider it unnecessary for them to make other provision for their loved ones. Hut if tliis be so, the counties majority of our raco, toiler by day and toiler by night, can have no such excuse. Money receivod from insurance companies in pay ment ol death losses ha preserved the homestead (or children whoso tender miuda could not have guosaud why they should bo torn from tho roofs that sliel tered them. It ho fed tho hungry, clothod the united, aud educ.ttud the or phan for a useful vocation. It has undo rough place smooth and given to the desolate widow sn aiiaiiratico of comfort bettor than the tciideTuat sym pathy of friend. It hn lifted tho bowed .cud and strengthened tho feublo baud for the hard battlo buforo them. If for no other reanon, yet should every futher in sure to leave a homo for bis children.

It is tho school of virtue, tlio companion of innocence, the guardian ol purity. If tliero be one presung need in this country, urgunt above nil others, it i buine for l La people. They are tho bul wark of our iiiDtilutions and tho unfailing dofunae of our liberties, liod hasten tho day when uo man lu tins glorious land may lie without a homo. Without a home, wiiul is wait? Intelligent ho may bo, hon est and true, yet ia ho hedged' about by untoward circuiuilnucea, lloiueluaa, ho has a Mordecai at hi g.ito, under whoso baleful iiiiluence all else goes for naught. A grout statesman truthfully aaid that pcaiant's home was hi caatlo. Tho wind of heuven might whistle through its crov ieca and the rain batter upon ita roof un bidden, but the King of Kngland could not enter It without due procea of law. A iieoplo with homes are gooj ritiiona, tappy aud obedient to tho lawa. The aaine people, homelcaa, are discontented, rost- Io and uiHlablo. Change the environ ment of humanity aud you change tho actions of humanity. It Is the duty of ivory father to provide, as soon as poaaible, a shelter for hi oil spring. It he cannot do so by hi own labor bo (hould secure it by joining tho Knights of Honor, who will aeo that his loved one shall have a roof to cover thorn when he shall have paused to Hint "belter homo not made with baud, eternal lu the ben vena." Tho ipiest'ion of your duty to Insure your life being settled, it become you, my friend, to consider what company oiler yon the very bet inducement, lu what orgnuiKiitiou can you secure the largest sum for the sinallust premium? And agiiin, what orders are wholly reliable and ever prompt iu payment ol claim? To thine ipirntlous, taken as one w holo, thore in ii r I hi many replies, hnneat and truthful, evasive and unealiaiaclory, but thore cau be nut one aoawer. Undoubtedly the plan ot mutual insur ance ia bettor in all cose lor Hie aaaurml. becauaa all companies rocvlve from tlmir own imliey holders the money with wliu li death rate aro paid. It lollowr that in compiiiuc not mutual lnr;wu.u ol itiouey are paid by policy holder upon the incor rect iiippoHition that said monoy wa actu ally needed to pay death lonne. If that were Hue such companies would not have been able lo amaa. colowal forlunoa anil at tho same time pay enormous salaries to their otlicora. There is no oacaiiing tho fact that they collected more money from their policy holder than wa actually needed lo keep their rlk In forco. Hut it iaataled in reply to tin that the auint thii overpaid go to Hi creation of a re serve fund, on which the companies may rely in cane of emergency. Hut w hat right baa a compauy to overcharge and tliu create a reserve fund? Who van lie lene filcd by it? Certainly not be who allows lna policy to hip) hccaiiiM) It paid, w will aar, ill per fl.lHW actual risk and 1 12 per $1,000 for reserve and ha boa lost them both. Certainly not tlie lamily of I h do reaaed, because, If be could have been in ured for fl'J er l,f at, it waa nnjuat to require oi mm a oouoie uouut, in oMor to create a reerv fund.

How often in Una city baa th pathway to the grave ix a tirigtitenett ty ucii retiectton as these? Ordinary inaursnce companies havi Do ni h n'servns on which to d:aw. They srv slranirar to the better nsrt ol life, the tralvtnity of lb KuighUuf Honor. Its benefit are not trauslershle. A Knight ol Ilouor rsntiitt Insure for a creditor, nor for iiituiUuip, but for Li taiully or those dependent tipon bint. These are tbs holiest purpose that can actuate human endeavor or stimulate human seal tho family. From It organization to the present time our order bas jM more than $-'7,500,000 to the benellciario of deceased brothers, and at an averagn cost of $17 per annum, or fi30 nor $1,000, What com pany can show tin record? I appeal to the history of iuaurunco. Can all the agencies abroad, can all the systems at home endure the comparison? Do not the many failures of companies with bright promises teach a mournful losson to hu manity? Do not the large number ol sal aried agent and costly building show thut in all othor system save tho Knight of Honor and similar asseaament bodies insurance is not furnialiod at coat? I have no war to wage with other systems, old line and mutual. Thoy do a good work, and should be encouraged. Muny olliccrs in theso bodies are also Knights of Honor, and their word is liko their bond, but In comparison with the plan of our order the victory must be left to us. Winter and summer, through evil ro port and through good report, in sunshine and storm, tho record wo have made beams along tho valleys and fhihes upon the mountain with a splendor unap proachod and unapproachable. It waa claimed that at tho llrat touch of adversity ', enthusiasm would ceaae, the mcmlorship decline aud the order pais out of exist ence. , Five year after lis organization, with it Ircngth untried and with predictions of failures from thousands who had scon simllur ventures come to naught, it was put iuto the cruciblo of attlic'.ion. Tho furnace beneath glowed with s Consuming 1 heat. Purely it could not endure so ' mighty a trial. Blackness above it, loft ) alone in the Humes, even the light ol ths stars withdiawn, tho aching hearts of men appealing to it, th cries of widowhood ringing within its ears, surely It would bo powerless, and pans from the hissing cal dron iuto the vast emptiness that mocks human endeavor. The gloom thlckoued, day became night, the awful beat grew white a snow, and still tho orphan clung to it a their ono lost refuge. With men's experience it must fail Hut not so.

IKj you reiiiouilwr tho pestilence, before whose baleful strides any other city than Memphis would have abandoned its homes? What then? Would the K nights ol Honor bo shle to pay their death lomos? Would they not desert their aick and fail to bury their dead? In thoao davs, (may they never come again), Iricmfship acemod a delusion, alfuctiou a mockery, and ths only passion that remained to man waa w ild and hoH-ies tear. list waa ths record then? Not a Kuight of Honor nejr lecled, nor a desth claim unredeemed. The order in p.iid in yellow fever de.itb losao in thi city alone tlie mui of t-MO.UiiO, In addition to tliia, Ihouiauds of dollars from the order si largo reached our sutlering brothers. Wlience did It come? From tho pine lor est s of Maine, to tho nutted and dismal awampt that fringo Florida, to tho Uulf .of Mexico; from the Northern lakes, from New York harbor, along the woudrou West and on lo the tiohlen (iat of tlie I'acltic. WlOa.ut lint it came, and with It the better assur ance that as long a a Knight of Honor needed a dollar l.e.-e, ho should not ask in vain.
