No tion of some of the miners of this re gion, there has beer* many ears of coal shipped out of the district during the week. The price received by the oper ators is very low compared with the price during the *i>4 strike, end as they have been to much expense in the way of guards, it is hinted that some of * th- m at Monongah has been excel’ nt for th" two hundred men in the mines, and the output is within twenty cars of what It whs before the strike commenced. The men at Montana are all at work with a few exceptions, as the Increased outpir of the region shows.

Wheeling Commandery No. 1 held its regular monthly conclave, with a fair attend ance of Knights present. Only routine business came before the body, and they were enabled to close early in the evening. Nelson Lodge No. 30 met on Thurs day evening, with a good attendance of brethren on hand to assist in working degrees, but work was deferred until the next communication of the lodge. Only two bodies will meet the com ing week. Wheeling Lodge No. 5, oil Thursday evening, and there should be a large gathering there, not only of members of the lodge, but also of the brethren of sister lodges, to assist Bro. Henry Speyer, Worshipful Master, to confer the degrees on candidates that may be on hand at that time. J Friday evening is the monthly con clave of Green Commandery No. 7. of which all the members will receive personal notice of what will be the program for the occasion. \\ e learn that the new officers are taking much interest in learning the work, and ; from indications they will become as : proficient as those who have pre ! ceeded them in office, j During the past few days many of i the craft from the interior were about ’ our city, but most too busy to talk ! much masonry. “HE IS GROWING OLD.” The following we read in the Ma sonic journal, “The Orient,’ and repro- ; duce it as food for thought, and for conscience to dictate, and for a nuin. a Mason, to ever aft<u* guard his acts to |wards the brctherhocd: “Yes. he is growing old.” they say. The initiate, the energetic Master, the brilliaut Grand Officer, our faithful. | trusty Tyler, is on the rising side of the meridian of to-day. and the old man of to-morrow. The bud of now. the “last leaf” of then. Where, where is the “last leaf” in our Masonic bo : dies? Where is lie “who is growing old?” Where is the once bright, am ! bilious Master, when the almond tfee flourishes, when the windows are <t2r ikened?v Tfimitted, forgotten, buried, j unknown. Where is he who once bore the burden and the heat of the day. af ter three-score years have tinged his hair with gray? Crowded out: crowd ed out—out—out. Age. and often pen ' urv have wrung an unwilling dimit 1 from the Lodge he loved: the Txxlge in which he won his laurels, achieved his ambition: where his hand was ! sruided by justice impartial, and. his purse was always open for the relief of ’the needy. The “last leaf” tossed by , adversity, trembling under infirmity, falls from the bough, dimitted, gone. This is not a fancied sketch. The grand army of non-affiliates are by a large majority old me:^, The lot or | the average is a dependence upon his children or relations, and many times. ; the alms-house. Why? Because the i period when the dues of the lodge, i chapter and commnndery were will ingly and easily paid has passed. Now it becomes a burden, and rather than suffer humiliation he withdraws and liases his Masonic home, his birth right. It is a shame, the disgrace of : Masonry, that Lodges go on exacting : dues from the patriarch, the fathers, 1 and drive them to dismission. The Grand bodies should enact a law, put | ting ever>’ Mason who has arrived at the age of sixty on the life member j list. Yes. pension her faithful crafts men and Knigh's.” The above idea will no doubt meet with the approval of the craft in West Virginia, and therefore should he ta ken into consideration by its several Grand Bodies, as the only correct method of preventing so many non aftiliates who now abundantly abound in our jurisdiction. if we could go back to the davs of operative Masonry, assemble with the craft and take a part in their labors, we would find among them the patri arch. the infirm, and their depend ence, not as those whom the craft had no further use for, and had better go : over the hill to the poor house, but as such who had wrought in life the work i which had been intrusted to them faithfully, and which they had only ceased now to do from old age and its infirmities, but who were deemed wor 1 thy to be pensioned, and to continue ; to he a part of the craft, if for no other reason than for advice and other assistance they could render to the j workmen in their labor. WHY IS THE CORNER-STONE PLACED IN THE NORTH-EAST CORNER? This question has often been asked, and rarely receives for some reason an intelligent response. But ah we can say of it is this. It seems to have been ; a custom from time immemorial to place in it that particular angle of the building, and this has been in almost j every case observed by ail fraternal societies, besides the Masons, as well | as by the Jews and Christians in lay ing th*> corner-stone of their houses of ; worship. I Masonic traditions inform us that , Mount Moriah, on which the founda tions of the Temple were laid, was a lofty hill, situated almost in the north east corner of the city of Jerusalem, having Mount Zion on the southwest, with the City of David and the King’s Palace on its summit, and Mount Aora on the west, whereon the lower city was built. The summit of the mountain on which the temple was built, which, al thou :h not very high, was exceeding ly -o.’cp, especially that part on which the northeast corner of the Temple rested. To secure a foundation and bring that part of it up to a level with the other portions of the foundation, required the construction of immense walls, composed of mammoth blocks of stone. In consequence of the loca tion of the Temple it could not be reached by approaches from the north east; consequently that locality be came what is known as '“a place of darkness.” If this tradition be true, no doubt that this isolated or private portion of the Temple, as well as its adaptability for the purpose suggested itself as the proper location tor the safe deposit of those Masonic rears that were brought to light when the children of Israel returned frpm their Persian captivity and commenced the creation of the second Temple. Of course every intelligent member of the craft knows that our forms and ceremonies are all trad itional .a! mo. bo exclusively and not of histor>, and therefore it will not be unwise toac eftr the theory set forth in the tradi tion we have set forth, until another shall be produced more conclusi . The opinion ot many student and d MP thinkers of Masonry is that the cus "laying the corner-stone ot puh «« Temple, ' Sr Jerusalem, and tram ‘hat custom has sprung the idea of the^ounge^ import ant Place tojrefei!® hhla M«at« an<1 X?££* of'the moral temple Masous build.
