In the list of regular bulges under tin- Grand Lodge of Scotland, printed In Edinburg In I76.r?, is found St. John's Lodge. No. 117. chartered for Norfolk, in Virginia, June 1st, 1711. The early history of Masonry in Virginia'is in? volved in obscurity from the paucity of records and the destruction of import? ant documents during tlie Colonial wars; but it !??' established beyond all doubt that St. John's Lodge was the tlrst to receive its charter. Other lodges were subsequently organized at differ? ent periods, under charters derived from the Grand Lodges of Englnnd, Scotland and Ireland; and. accordingly, at tho beginning of tho revolution in I77i',. we find certainly not less than eight legal working lodges. After tlie declaration of war by the Colonies it became ne< essary for their mutual ben? efit and protection to organize a Grand Lodge for Virginia, and. accordingly, after due notice. Hie representatives of five of (he eight lodges met in Williams burg. May 6th, 1777. FIRST GRAND MASTER. Matthew Phrlpp, Esq., a bright Ma? son and devoted patriot, was the depu? ty from Norfolk, ami was complimented in being elected president of the con? vention. Owing to tlie tinsel tied condi tlon of the country, consequent upon a bloody and devastating war, the Grand Lodge was not formally* instituted until the 1.1th October, 177S. at which time John Blair, master "f tho Willlnmsburg Lodge, was duly Installed in that town grand master of Virginia. PALM AWARDED NORFOLK. T'or reasons now unknown an interval of twelve years elapsed before the committee appointed to ascertain the ages and settle nnd regulate the rank of tlie respective lodges, reported, when tlie palm was awarded to Norfolk. Ac? cordingly St. John's Lodge, No. 117. surrendered its charter to Hie Grand Lodge of Scotland, ami received in its place one from (lie Grand Lodge of Vir? ginia, under tlie date and title of Nor? folk Lodge, No. 1, (leloher 20th, 1790. signed by Thomas Matthews, grand master; J. R. Read, deputy grand mas? ter; B. Ward, grand secretary. STILL HAVE Till-: CHARTER. This ancient and honored charter Is still In her possession, a precious heir? loom, mildewed and dusty, but fragrant with tho memories of a heroic past. Although more than a century and a quarter have passed over her head, her eye has not lost its fire nor her arm ?ts stregnth. Horn during a stormy pe? riod, and sprung from a vigorous, earn? est and virtuous Scotch stock, she has witnessed the rise and fall of empires abroad, and survived the shock of three great wars at home. ENTERTAINED LAFAYETTE. Lafayette has been the guest of the lodge ami In 1821 was made an hon? orary member, and signed the reg? ister, its seal and diplomas are respected in foreign lands, Without dis? turbing its harmony or impairing its strength, it established In is.", 1 a second nourishing lodge, which, in turn, has furnished the materials for a third.

Heart troubles, nt least among the Americans, are certainly Increasing and while th s may be largely due to the ex? citement and worry of American business life, it i.s more often the result of weak stomachs of poor digestion. lteal organic disease Is Incurable; but not one case la a hundred of heart trou? ble is organic. The close relation between heart trou? ble and poor digestion is because both organs are controlled by the same great nerves, the Sympathetic and I'neumogas trlc. In another way. also the heart is ef? fected by the form of poor digestion, which causes gas and fermentation from half digested food. There is a feeling of oppression and heaviness in the chest caused by pressure of i he ,i stended stomach on the heart and lungs, interfer? ing with their action: hence arises palpi? tation and Short breath. Poor digestion also poisons tho blood, making it thin and watery, Which irr - tatCS and weakens the heart. The most sensible treatment for heart trouble is to Improve the digestion and lo insure the prompt assimilation of foed. This can he done by the regular use after meals ot same safe, pleasant and effective .! Restive preparation. like Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, which may be found at mast drop: stores and which contain valuable, harmless digestive de? ments In a pleasant, e nvenlent form. It Is safe, to say that the regular per? sistent use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets at meal time will cure any form of stomach trouble except cancer of the stomach.
