In every nation where human progress admits the light of Freemasonry, the festival of St. John the Evangelist, on the 27th of December, is celebrated with imposing' ceremony. The fraternity purposed in its festivals to worship the Grand Architect of tho Universe, hum bly imploring his blessings upon the race, and entering npon the feast of brotherly affection and universal benev olence. It was deemed most conducive v to the benefit of the order, and the honor and advantage of the lodges to have this year, an installation of the officers of the Blue Lodge and Chapter, to conclude with a banquet and ball, to be witnessed and participated in by Masons and their ladies. The craft numbers to many here that their large lodge room and par lors are filled by members and lady friends on such an occasion. The- event on Thursday night eclipsed all that "had preeeded it in tho undertakings of the order. In the elaborate ceremony there was observed that dignity, efficiency and solemnity so essentialto ceremony. In the striking, costly yestures.and im plements, there was muck to interest the eye, also to improve the mind of the thinker. The Chapter did well for its first appearance. There is always so much to learn in Freemasonry that there can only be comparative excellence obtained but it is safe to say the order here is a credit and honor to the fraternity. The feast was rich, elaborate, and enjoyed to the full. The dancing was in keeping. with the dances of our city. Dedication.

The fraternity has crowded as much good into G5 years as auy benevolent organization was ever honored with. Recognizing no aristoc racy but that or mind and soul, belieying in a Universal Father and its accompa nying truth the universal Brotherhood of the race, standing squarely upon the equality of human rights, consecrated to a world-wide benevolence, seeing no dis tinction but that of goodness, the Order has overcome calumny, persecution and wrought results that are astounding even in ihU age of rush and greatness The new Lodge ruom was dedicated on Christmas eve to the sacred purposes f the order in a manner that honored the fraternity, the lodge, and the city. The members within themselves, conducted the beautiful, expressive ceremony of th hour solemnly, correctly and to the de light of the crowded hall. The Pastor of the Independent Church delivered an ad dress. The dance was an eminent suc cess. The feast of good things to eat and drink at the Bcntyu House was a mag nificent banquet.
