A celebration of St. John's Dav of
the Masonic fraternity of this "city
was observed Thursday uijiht. It
. has been the custom of the Masonic
Lodges and the Orders of the East
ern Star to observe this day in
Nashville for a. number of years, but.
this year it was practically n ilnnhl..
celebration. The day was observed
to the home-coming or entrance into
the- new Masonic Temple, the mag
nificent property recently purchased,
remodeled on Fourth avenue made
the occasion a notable one. Many of
the dignitaries of the order were in
attendance. Kv. Preston Taylor, the
Worshipful Master of the Eastern
Star Lodge, was master of cere
mony for the occasion. In response
to invitations not only members of
the order, but quite a number of
visitors and friends were In atten
dance. Dr. Taylqr called the meeting to or
der rt 8:30 o'clock. After statins?
the purpose of the celebration, he
introduced Grand Master Strayhoru,
who delivered a timely address on
the accomplishments of the order. It
was the-n that Gran.l Secretary; T.
B. Hardeman sprang a surprise upon
the audience by announcing; the ap
pointment of Kev. Preston Taylor as
Grand Treasurer for the Grand
Lodge of Masons of Tennessee. This
brought quite a cheer. After this
the following speakers were intro
duced and delivered addresses: Mr.
W, W. Williams. G. M. D. D.; Mr. T.
B. Hardeman, G. S., Prof. Allen, Mr
A. W. Brown, Dr. M. E. Ford, Grand
Patron Adams, the head of the Or
der of Eastern Star; Rev. Henry A.
Boyd, Hon. J. C. Napier and Mr. Rel.l,
the Junior Warden of the Eastern
Star Lodge. While the speaking was
at its height a committee made tfp
of the members of the various lodges
served refreshments consisting of;
sandwiches, coffee, ice cream and
, cake. While this repast was being
enjoyed another surprise awaited the
magnificent audience. There burst
forth from some unseen place the
voices of a hidden choir singing
softly but sweetly, "Joy to the
World," etc. Every eye was strained
and every ear attentive, trying to
locate and listen to the splendid
music that was being made. Finally
two double doors swung ajar and
the entire choir of the Lea Avenue
Christian Church, led by 'Mrs. Pres-
" ton Taylor, marched into the hall as
they continued their singing. They
were then introduced by the master
of ceremony and were served. It
developed in the course of the eve
ning from the various addresses that
the Masonic fraternity of Tennessee
boast of being the most substantial
of all Orders, in Nashville. They
own a Widows and Orphans' Home lo
cated on a tract of land of about
forty acres . with two magnificent
brick structures with all the modern
conveniences, such as light, heat and
other equipments. The acquisitions
to the hall by the various Lodges and
Orders of Eastern Star have added
"Impetus to the work. The grand of-
offloers present, together w'l!i the of
ificers of the various lodges, pledged

It will be seen at a glance that in
the appointment of Dr. Moore, the
president of the Convention has
looked ahead for a capable man to
do the spiritual .work that it deems
necessary to be' done in the camps.
Dr. Moore, it is learned, has already
visited a number of the camps and
delivered Btirring sermons and par
ticipated in many activities. At pres
ent he is the pastor of the Seconn
Baptist Church of Columbus. For
eighteen years ho was the pastor of
the Zion Baptist CTiurch of Phila
delphia, Pa. He is also tljfi vice
chairman of the Foreign Mission
Board of the National Baptist Con
vention and is regarded as one of
tha ripe scholars of the denomina
tion. Only recently at Columbus he
was appointed by the mayor as a
member of the Vice Commission, be
ing the only member of the race on
the commission. It is understood
that Dr. 'Moore in accepting the ap
pointment will not relinquish etiaree
of tlifl church, but that the r. church
will give him a leave of absence to
visit these camps.

"All right I will be silent until
you have linished." '"Well, Milo
asked me point blank if I would
give you to him."
"And what did he say?" cried
"YTou promised not to say one word
until I have finished."
The Judge finished and as he told
Clarissa that Milo was coming to pay
her a call she tripped upstairs to
dress. Clarissa was disappointed for
Milo did not come.
The night before Milo Davis had
been kept waiting until almost three
o'clock waiting for his brother. As
Milo opened the door, John fell at
"John, how could you?"
"Aw, don't scold me this time and
I will tell you what happened."
"Who were you with? I saw the
man but did not know him to be one
of your friends."
"He wasn't my friend until to
night. Ho is Assistant District At
torney Jones," said John.
"And you drank with him? I
thought he hated you," said Milo in
"He did until tonight. He asked
about you. He said he heard you
were going to f,et married."
Milo left his brother and went to
his room. The next morning John
was too ill to go to his ollice.
A few evenings after the preced
ing events tho Judge said to Clarissa:
I "Clar, I want you to meet a friend
"What's his name, father?"
"Alvin Jones, i to is a lawyer. He
is coining tomorrow evening."
Clarissa was desirous to meet her
father's friend for the judge talked
so much of him.
When Attorney Jones came the
judge said, "This is my daughter,"
and Clarissa raised her head with a
"I am glad to meet my fathers
friend. You have never been to see
I've never been asked. I think
I almost had to ask this time."
Well," Jones said rather slow,
"fathers don't keep their girls long
after they are nineteen or twenty."
The judge laughed and said in a
disgusted tone, "If I keep Clar until
she is twenty I will be the luckiest
man in New York."
One evening John accepted an in
vitation to dine with Jones. At the
table Jones offered John Davis the

heart, and he did not mention Mllo's

to think of a plan to turn Clarissa
During the winter months Milo
would meet Clarissa at different tea
rooms and they would spend happy
One evening as she passed through
the corridor on her way out of a
building to wait for Milo, she was at
tracted by, a very beautiful woman
gazing in her direction. There was
a look in the woman's dark eyes
which puzzled Clarissa, for she was
sure she did not know the woman,
but she soon forgot her. But the
woman did not forget her. She
started to follow Clarissa but instead
said with a frown on her face:
"So she Is the girl he loves. She
Is very beautiful, tho kind men love,
but I would give my life to have him
for my own."
The woman had said this with her
hands In her face. Presently a maid
came in and asked her if she was ill
or could she do anything for her at
which she replied, "No." After the
maid had gone the woman went in
the direction she had seen Clarissa

"I couldn't get here nnv earlier,
Atrell, and you are very lucky 'to have

Atrell I want to talk to you ajiout our
affairs. You see we have been
friends for a long time and you
know such things must end one way
or the other. There are times when
a man goes wrong."
"Do you think our love is wrong?"
"No, not that especially that. Well,
after a fellow has done all he can,
then he must marry. I mean unless

There were two opposing teams, the

were at once served. It was a three
cours'e menu, utter which cigars in
abundance were passed. After all
had feasted und the members of the
lodge with their invited guests sat
watching the curls of smoke ascend
to the ceiling, a volley of oratory wa3
turned loose. The first speaker
called was Sir Knight Fenroy, who
told of the struggles of Stringer
Lodge and gave a graphic descrip
tion of the' purpose of the smoker
and the campaign. He was followed
by Sir Knight Reuben Richardson,
who further told of the work of
Pythlanlsm as seen in Stringer
Lodge. At this point Chancellor
Commander Cunningham, insa spoecn
well fitting the occasion, 'reviewed
his years of work in the Pythian
Lodge and referred beautifully to
many stalwart niert who had assisted
him. In closing, ho introduced G. C.
J. P. Crawford, who spoke from the
subject, "Let It Be Perpetuated." For
thirty minutes the Grand Chancellor
paid glowing tribute to the pioneer
PythianSj referring to the late Sir
Knights Tyree, the founder of
Stringer Lodge, Knowles, Boyd

Throughout the addresses each
speaker told of his connection with
tho Order of charity, friendship and
benevolence. Stringer Lodge is re
garded as one of the strongest nu

claiming a membership of 170. It. Is
about twenty-two years old, and lr
their goal of lifty members is reached

It was about midnight when the
smoke of oratory cleared away and
Chancellor Commander Cunningham
rapped for order. The closing odi
was sung1 and' the benediction pic

members of the lodge declared will

together proposition, remembering
that it was not men that caused our
seperation, but measures not supposi
tions but facts, not triiles but princi
pals. There are several brethren writing
upon the propose peace idea or in
other words the get-to-gethor idea,
suggesting a compromise. Let us con
sider what a compromise means. In
a sense it means a sacrifice of some
contention or principel that the two
contending factions have been holding
on to, and claiming the righteousness
of the stand taken, or in other wrds
it means giving and taking. The
reader here will not mistake the spirit:
of the scribe of these lines to be op
posing the coming together of this oitr
great Baptist Zion, for no man in the
denomination would rejoice more
when the day comes that wo can
Ilaptistically scripturally and consist
ently get together, but we do here and
now enter our most serious protest
upon coming together on tho proposi
tion of a compromise for the reason
principle do not change, they will be
the same throughout time and eterni
ty. We have been saying and still
saying that our brethren who may
be regarded as our opponents, dis
regarded, ignored and Bet aside some
of the fundamental principle of the
Baptist Church for which the fathers
died and run rough shod over the
prerogatives of orthodox Baptist
preachers and laymen, and set at
naught the sovereignty of the church,
coupled with the spirit of destructive
ness along with the ambition of be
coming church dictators and bosses.
We protesled against such a proce
dure and declared ourselves in favor
of the above named things
Sunday schools throughout the city
to participate in the demonstration.
The Kev. .Mr. 1 oyd will visit most
of the schools in an automobile pro
vided by the committee during the
morning hours, and at three o'clock
Sunday afternoon, January 27th, he
will address a Sunday school mass
meeting in the .Metropolitan Church.
Monday night ho will deliver a
special leiture at the same place.
In discussing the matter Dr. Brown
was of the opinion that this drive
of the Sunday school forces would
mean a great deal to the city. "The
very fact that this front line Sunday
.school builder has been secured for
this occasion .guarantees that every
Sunday school worker in these parts
will get new inspiration. While we
have been planning for hiin on sev
eral occasions, it was the first open
date he could give us for the east.
Greater New York will give this Con
gress Secretary an entertainment, a
reception and an audience that are
deserving his worth," said Dr. Brown.

probable that Secretary Boyd would
on his return south make a number

they ignored and the spirit with which
they are possessed. If we were right
then, we are right now.
Then we ask the question what have
we to sacrifice, what have we to offer
then as a compromise? A getting to
gether upon a compromise, to my way
of thinking it doesn't mean a substan
tional peace. There isn't but the one
way of getting together so that wo
might stay together and that is, for
the man or men who are wrong and
have sense and religion enough to see
their wrongs and confess them. The
burden of truth as to who is wrong
and as to who is right will bo brought

from it some useful acquisitions for
daily life and are also prepared for a
continuance ot this subject in oolleg.
