Y. ft S THE LODGE CORNER, s " AtlVHiico Aftuieiitii." The term "advance assessment" has crept Into the phraseology of tho Or der, and it has been found ho confusing that the Supremo and Grand ottlcers have for years been unable to abolish its use and correct tho false impres sions to which it has given rise. Many members supposo that tho deposit in the beneficiary fund which they made on joining is not used in tho payment of death claims, but is kept on deposit somewhere, and that at any time they fail to pay an assessment this deposit rovers their liability to the Order and keeps them in good standing. Law- yers make the same mistake and bring suit against the Order where tins sup position is their sole ground, and then; is reason to suspect that it has some times confused even the courts. Perhaps an illustration of what oc curs will make the facts plain to the members. On the first of the month the (irand Kocorder calls upon tho (sub ordinate lodges for tho beneficiary fund in their treasury, with which to pay death losses that have already oc curred. Tho making of this call con stitutes an assessment upon the mem bers for one assessment each which they pay during tho month, having until tho close of the listh day in which to make the payment. Tito assess ment thus paid is to replenish the ben eficiary fund in the subordinate lodge, so that when another call becomes necessary they will have the money to meet it. During the month, while the members are thus paying un assess ment levied by the Grand llecorder, 11 new member is admitted to tho lodge. As he comes in after tho first of the month when the assessment was made, he, of course, was not assessed, but as he will be a member in good standing at the time the next call is made, he of course must have in the beneficiary fund of the subordinate lodge a deposit, the same us any other member. There fore, while the other members pay an assessment levied upon them by the Grand Recorder, he must pay the amount of an assessment at the time of his admission. He thus practically pays the assessment for tho month in which he was admitted, so as to place himself on an equality with the other members for the next call that is made thereafter. The only difference be tween his situation and that of other members is, that they, having been memix.'rs when the call was made, have until the t!8th day of the month in which to make the payment, while he, coming in afterwards, must pay it at the time he is admitted. In his case, as iti that of other members, the next call of the Gland Kecorder draws from the subordinate lodge the amount he has deposited, and levies upon him an assessment, which he must pay during the coming mouth. With this explan ation we hope the matter is made clear, and that members will cease to use the term "advance assessment," or to suppose that they have on deposit with the Order a sum that will pay an assessment which they may otherwise fail to meet. Overseer. i.ltf or l4Mtll. "Your order is growing too fast; it will be the death of it; too many doubt ful applicants get in," was the com ment of u critic the other day. No order can possibly grow too fast, but too slow growth will paraly.e it. Nothing can succeed without growth. The flowers would never put in an ap pearance were it not for growth; fruit would never gladden our sideboards; the golden grain depends upon the growth of the straw; human beings must grow; to cease growing stunts the vital elements and death and decay step in. A man's business must grow to prosper; a nation must grow In ter ritorial radius or it will in time In come so densely populated that its people will suffer for labor to do and food to eat. Everything, animate and inanimate, must grow or bo destroyed or stand still, which means a turn downward toward disintegration or death. fraternities must grow. "New blood" must be infused if stagnated and at a standstill, if this is not douo it means additional assessments, decreas ing influence and inability to do the good for which the order is organized. Individual effort is essential; indeed, it is necessary. Membership in a fra ternal order carries with it obliga tions to work for its interests; well di rected energy brings new metnlers and every new mem iter is a co-partner to share the burdens, thus, in a degree, reducing the burdens on all other members. If the new memlers ure healthy and sound their advent will increase the revenues without, for a long period to come, increasing the liabilities perceptibly. In an old line company a policy holder is not obli gated to solicit new members.' The big cost of insurance is the equivalent, the ollcy holder pays for a reserved seat, or as Sov. Farmer so tersely ex presses it, "Swei glass beer und no fllesh." They get their policy with no trimmings or conditions as to er sonal effort or Influence except to pay excessive premiums therefor. The member of a fraternal order pays "part cash and part lalor" and' tho member who shirks tho labor ob ligations is not giving a fair deal; U not aiding growth, and growth is abso lutely necessary to low cost and suc cess. Exchange. As Others Nhw It. The Sovereign Visitor, official organ Woodmen of tho World, dishes up the session of the National Fraternal Con gress In a rather sarcastic manner. It reiterates the charge made against President Oronhyatekha of securing the passage of a bill prohibiting socle ties organized in this country from doing business In Canada, and cites as proof tho reception given by him to a committee who called upon him to re monstrate against the passage of said bill. It claims the charge will not soon dissipate even under tho ingen ious explanations and apologies made to the congress. It pays its respects to Past Presi dents Stevens and Shepard and says that Hro. Hoyntou gyrated around the room so when reading his paper that there was no need of electric fans to stir the humid air. The election of officers is alluded to in the following tuantier: "Tho elec tion was a listless affair, tho outgoing vice president was promoted to presi dent somewhat reluctantly and with out any enthusiasm whatever. The secretary was re-elected as a mere matter of form. There was consider able buttonholing by candidates for the vice presidency, but all were run off the track by Hro. C. K. Donnell, chairman of the local reception com mittee, who had the finesse to treat the whole congress, their w"ives, sis ters, cousins and aunts, to a delightful tally-ho ride and a saudwich and beer collation at San Souci beer garden tho evening before." It closes as follows: "Practically nothing new except rates was adopted, the straw of 1898 was again threshed, the medical section, tho press section and tho main Uxly had brilliant thoughts eloquently expressed by those present, which will be published, and the next meet at Atlantic City may be anticipated with interest. Meanwhile we will try to reconcile ourselves to foreign rule." Knights of Honor Ke- jKirter. Frnteriiwlism tlie Best. Heyond question, fraternalism pro vides tho l)est method for giving safe protection to the dependents of tho great mass of workingmen in this coun trythe men in shops, in stores, be hind the counters, on railways, in of fices, in all vocations of life where they win their bread by individual physical and mental effort, and where five hun dred to two thousand dollars will meas ure the extent of tho protection need ed by them. Fraternalism stands pre-eminently uInivu and superior to any other meth od in the matter of economy, and equal to any other as regards safety. In truth, because of the ties of brother hood, and because of the freedom from financial danger on account of vast ac cumulation, finally, because of the freedom from selfish control to serve personal ends, fraterualism indeed of fers the safest protection of all insur ance systems. Does Thin Muii You? "I never attend lodge meeting. I just joined for tho inst'tuco. "I never asked any one to lecome a member; I am not fitted for that kind of work; besides there are plenty of others in the lodge to do soliciting, "I never bother reading the society organ, or viewing the monthly finan cial statement If it Is not right sQme of tho other fellows will discover it. "Once in a while tho lodge has a ban quet and entertainment to whieli my wife and I go, but I never do any com mittee work, or have anything to do with getting them up. "I never mention the order to my friends; they probably do not know that such an institution is in existence. Specimens like the above can be found In almost every lodge In the country. They are first-class at tell ing what "they" ought to be, but they "never" do anything themselves. Kx. No good man or brother with a pure heart or right intentions, will desiro tt) Ik) excused from his duty. Those who cherish respect for fraternity and its teachings will esteem attendance at the meeting a privilege rather than a task. There is no test that more clearly reveals the amount of regard which members cherish for their lodge or the welfare of the order and the carrying out of its good purposes, than their habits of attendance at stated meetings. Were all as negligent in this respect, tho lodge room would cease to bo and the great good which is being accomplished by our beloved order would cease. Fraternal News.

If tho present age be deducted from HI, two-thirds of the remainder is the an swer required. This result is not abso lutely accurate, but it is near enough. For instance, a man aged 'J might by this rule expect to live lo years longer, which is just what the latest actuarial tables give. At 5(1 the expectation of life works out at nearly Ji years, while the tables give it at more than l!.r years. At 10 the above rule allows just over IS years, and the table shows a little less.

The error of the dav in medical treat ment is the "doctoring" of effects in stead of getting at the cause. A powder for headache, a tablet for indigestion, and a plaster for backache.
