But we must not be easily led

Neither should we confine our
selves to Masonic history because by

Masonry is a progressive Science
it is so formed that it can well keep
pace with the time and place I*
which it lives and those who pas
take of it must of necessity study
and progress with it, or they will be
»nly mr-mb *s of masonic lodges only.
What does the word Masonry meal
in our connection?
Some i>jy if means or it is rynoml

means to send or to throw. There
are many theories advanced, but
none conclusive. -
