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.

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.

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.

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.

By Meomarta Clata Rose. "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 Clarissa. . "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 his feet. "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 surprise. "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 of mine." "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 charming smile. "I am glad to meet my fathers friend. You have never been to see us before." 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 wine list.. Shaking his head John replied: "Thanks, but this time I won't drink." 'Quite a sudden resolution. I guess that brother of yours has a lot of influence over you, has he not?" "Yes ho has and I promised him I would not drink any more. If any one makes him a promise they have a hard job on their hands to break it." "This speech went home to Jone's heart, and he did not mention Mllo's name again that day. He was trying to think of a plan to turn Clarissa against Milo. CHAPTED IV. During the winter months Milo would meet Clarissa at different tea rooms and they would spend happy evenings together. 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 go. In another part of the citv a very Dcauutui dark woman walked up and down a long room. She seemed to bo nervous but she was In a deep study. She was waiting for a man a big splendid fellow, who had been her all for many years. Suddenly she heard him coming up the steps. As he entered she said, "Alvin, dear, i tnougnt you would never come. Dinner has been on tho table such -a length of time." "I couldn't get here nnv earlier, Atrell, and you are very lucky 'to have me here at all," replied Jones. "Now, 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?" asked Atrell. "No, not that especially that. Well, after a fellow has done all he can, then he must marry. I mean unless two people like you and me wish to end an affair of this kind in marriage then the soonqr we break oft, the better." ."Then do you want to marry me?" asked tlie woman. "As much as I might like to mar ry you I could not If I wished, be cause it is impossible." "You told me as soon as you were made assistant district attorney, you would marry me. You have had that position for almost a year." "I, know I have, Atrell, and I ap preciate that you have been the best girl in the world, but I cannot marry you. I must marry some one else," replied Jones. "After giving you the best years of my life, and being with you constant ly, you are going to marry another? Will you please tell me why?" "Don't ask me why. It is a matter of necessity." "Do you think I am going to be satisfied with that reason which is There were two opposing teams, the red and the white, and it was the plan that tho team selling the larger number of tickets, the proceeds ot which were to go to the smoker, would be the honored team and the leader was to be given a free ride Irom Fifth avenue down Cedar street to the hall in a wheelbairow, wlucn was to be pushed by the leader of the team losing. The white was the victor, the red the vanquished. ' A wheelbarrow was borrowed of John son Company, undertakers, and the losing side bravely paid theid debt amid the cheers of the enthusiastic members and friends of the Stringer Lodge. Chancellor Commander Cunning ham, after they had arrived at the hall, rapped the lodge to order and s)iibiunsd,ijoa puu pujojju su.w aa.fiMd 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 Cockrell and Cansler. He declared in conclusion mat pytlnauism was in the ascendency, other speakers who were heard were Knight J. C. Napier, Grand Attorney; Knight A. N. Johnson, Grand Clerk; Knight. A. W. Fite, Grand Field Deputy; Knight J. P. Porter, Deputy; Sir Knight Col II. A. Boyd, of the Uniform Rank, and Knight D. Wr. Brry. 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 merically and financially in the city claiming a membership of 170. It. Is about twenty-two years old, and lr their goal of lifty members is reached it will put them ahead of any lod.ge In Tennessee. 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 nounced, pulling down the curtain upon the opening scene of what thfi members of the lodge declared will be the greatest campaign for member ship in the city. meni, we must go lorward and -keep the soldier boys In loach wiih the truilis as found in the New Testa ment.

"Yours for service, "EDW. P. JONES." This appointment is regarded here by the Baptist forces as a distinct recognition to the Rev. Mr. Boyd, who has served for fuorteen years as Secretary of the Sunday School Congress, which position lie will con tinue to hold, linking it with the newer and higher honor conferred upon him. He served on the special commission that visited the War Department last month, and it is un derstood he studied the conditions at the arious camps.

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. Superintendent Hunter of the Sun day school slated it was not im probable that Secretary Boyd would on his return south make a number of stops, including Jersey City, New ark, Philadelphia, Washington and Pittsburg, hut that his objective point would be the missionary rally at the Metropolitan.

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.

Tho medi 'tation of this book gives an elemen tary knowledge of Physical Geogra phy and the pupils are left with a iuir understanding of this subject. During the second year high school, chemistry is studied. This science treats with tha composition of sub stances and the changes which they undergo. 16 defines energy matter, tho law of tho conservation of mat ter and elements. The gases and their compounds and the properties of these are studied. As the ques tion of what should be included in an elementary text on chemistry is a perplexing one, only such principles are represented as are within the un derstanding of a student. In the third year Physics is Btudied. Physics Is often defined as the sci ence of matter and energy. Matter is everything which occupies space. Properties of matter, motion, mechan ics of fluids and solids are all studied on an elementary basis. This subject is Btudlpd so that the pupils may gain from it some useful acquisitions for daily life and are also prepared for a continuance ot this subject in oolleg. ELMOR BRYANT, Senior B Grade.
