The seal of the Ancient Templars
represent two armed Knights, mounted
one behind the other, on the same
horse, with a Latin inscription en
circling it, to remind all the Knights
of the order that the symbol represents
a union and a bond of brotherly love
which should ever exist among the fel
low-soldiers of the Temple, and not as
I is pretended by some historians of the
Order, in token of their primative pov
erty. according to which two Knights
could have but one horse between
them. The Trecensian statutes, oi
rule of the Order, sanctioned by the
r Council of Troyes, and confirmed by
t pope Honorlus II, totally ignore this
l poverty, for Canon 30 allows eact
• | Knight to have three horses. For it
1 may really be imagined that two man
> { ed knights, astride of one horse, woim
w—umnu.ni pujm;>. 10 htul from the Holy
’ City, and anything but a terror tc
' their Saracen foes. It is a fact bevond
| dispute that Baldwin, King of Jeru
salem. was ever a warm friend of the
’ new Order, and therefore must certain
1 ly have supplied the Templars with
sufficient horses for the purpose, the
more readily as there were plenty to be
; had In Palestine, and the knights being
but very few at that time, required but
a small number. According to latter
, statutes, it was expressly prohibited
that two brethren should ride on one
horse, probably for the reason that the
seal had been, In derision, erroneously
interpreted. The banner of the Order
was black and white, and made of
cloth, the white to signify that the
Knights walked in the innocence and
purity of Christ; the black that they
were a terror to their enemies. The
name of the banner and at the same
time the battle cry, and most sacred
oath of the Order was “Beauseant,” in
allusion to the seal, whereon two
brethren were represented is riding
on one horse, which was consmered by
the Order as a “fair seat,” i. e„ “Beau
seant,” that is as a seal of true frater
nal alliance. Beauseant, or Baucens,
signifies black and white, spotted, es
pecially as applied to a horse. But it
would seem very inopposite that a
Templar should swear by the color of a
horse, should choose this for their war
cry and so style their banner. The
seal of the Order was always accom
panied with the word Beauseant. Both,
therefore, stood in close relationship.
It would se$m natural, therefore, to re
fer this word Beauseant to their token
of “brotherly love.” where two Temp
lars were represented as united in close
friendship, anil seated on one horse.
This device, "the fair seat,” “beau
Seant, served as a symbol of intimate
union, the word was adopted as their
battle cry and the name of the banner,
and finally it formed an appropriate
formula of oath, signifying—“By the
fraternal bond of the'Templar Order—

On last w’ednesray evening there was
a large attendance of the members of
this lodge, as well as a large number
of visitors. Tfeje new officers have as
sumed their stations, and are moving
out as though thyoy had been in train

corps seem to be gj-eatly interested in
the work and It wfji not be owing to
any lack of effort oi^ their part if 114
does not make extratardinary advance
ment towards the frtant during this
term. It is cheering to greeted by the
pleasant smile of the (Auter Guard as
he bids you enter the portals. The
members of 114 always Welcome vis

shall excel them In their social quali

exist not in name only, but tyi prac

brothers on Wednesday evening and
their assistance in the conferring of
the work was highly appreciated \and

members of sister lodges. On next
Wednesday evening the by-laws will
be reported to the lodge, and it should
be the duty of all members of 114 to be
present to assist in making the laws
that are to govern — -----

are not there and something should
be done that does not suit your idea
of the fitness of things, kindly for
bear any unjust criticisms but reflect
that it might have been otherwise had
you been«there.
The benefit of wearing a society pin
or button by our mothers, sisters wives
or daughters was practically demon
strated the other evening. A young
miss in her teens was passing along
the streets when from the curb ston.
came an insulting remark, made by a
voung man-no, beg pardon-no
man ever offered an insult to a lady,
try ar gentiemaii siammrif .being heard
tention was called to the person "'fa
whom it was supposd the remark was
addressed. Seeing a K. of P. button in
the jacket worn by the young lady,
he approached her and asked if any of
her family were members of the order
of K. of P.'s. She replied by saying
her father was. He then said to her
to pass on and he would pay atten
tion to the ond that had offered the
insult. He at once found an officer,
and had the brute arrested; was a wit
ness against him, the result being that
for the breach of propriety he was
compelled to pay a goodly sum to the
city. What more practical exemplifi
cation of the teachings of our order
could we have than this. As mem
bers of the order we have our unwrit
ten work by which we can secure pro
tection if necessary, but those who look
after our honor, making them cheerful
and pleasant, who welcome us after
the toil and labor of the day, have not
this safeguard thrown around them.
Would that we could have every moth
er, sister, wife and daughter of a
Knight of Pythias wearing some em
blem that will afford them protection,
whether at home or abroad, in the day
light or at night.
The outlay for this safeguard is in
significant as compared w’ith the pro
tection it will afford our dear ones.

Much indignation has been expressed
over the removal of the postofflee from i
room Nos. 1 to 4, in the city market
place. The removal is certainly a grep-t
misfortune ant^ inconvenience to at
least three-fourths of the population of
Wellsburg, to say nothing of the em
barrassment of having to pass (when .
vou can get past) the “weary Willies” I
'who constantly block the main en- j
trance to the building and the pool j
room. If the honorable members of |
the City Council wiif make somo effort |
to keep the “city market place” pave
ment free from loafers, they may have
some show for re-election at the next !

"Tes, sir," said Parker, and his look of t
astonishment gave way to one of perplex- 1

you. I will tell you why I have decided '
