On last Monday evening. 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.
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.

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 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.
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^
