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.

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. The Lodge room la-
handsome and elegantly famished. The
order has no debt, several hundred dol
