A Pleasant Invent.
The rccentloii of Mt. Calvary Comman-
dory , Knighto Templar , at Masonic hall
Thursday evening was a very pleasant event.
The hull was profusely decorated
with the national colors , flowers and suiilax.
In front hung a laivto painting of a castle
from which the primeval knight was wont to
sally forth in conquest. Immediately In front
of this was U pyramid of pottoil plants. On
cither side of this pyramid was a teut , in
each 11 "pilgrim's farewell , " consisting of
cru'-kors , water and a lighted candle. Near
the entrance of the hall stood n
Itnight's ' steed , mailed and ready lor
its rider. From the chandeliers to
the corners of tbo room were festoons
Of evergreens ana smilax. The orches
tra was hidden by u wall of flow-
lira. The hallway from the dance
inll to the dining room wns canopied
with UUCP , making u delightful promenade
between dances. At OtfO there was a
jhort drill of the knights , after which Major
Clarltson made a brief anA npprujirinte open
Ingndilriias. This was followed by seven
dances , the programmes bolug a triumph of
the typographical art. The gupiwr was in
keeping with everything , nml twice the din
ing hall was filled. The menu card was a
novelty. The oysteis In carved Ire worn
"fromtho rough Hands of tlio sea ; " the col-
dry. olives and pickles wcie eaten under the
Injunction , "Halve them and begin. " Scal
loped ojstcrs "for strict trial and duo exam
ination" preceded the turkey and capon
"duly and truly prepared , worthy and well
( uallllcd. " The lioiiian punch was ' 'mixed
with the oil of gladness , " and the chicken-
lalad , "like King Solomon's temple with not
ivork , lily woileand pomegranates. " Uussort
was "Indicativu of Musonlo strength" and the
fruits and rolTco were partaken of before
Qio guests were bidden to "observe the oust
tmd now let us make our csca | > o , "
After this dancing was resumed. The no-

rirltisti Orders ofKulKlitlioort.
It is perhaps true of every secret org.miz
ation which has attained distinction and
standing that the acme of the endeavors of
the initiate is a point of knighthood indi
rcctly if not directly prescribed by the rituals
of the order. Chivalry which is nearly if nol
quite synonymous to knighthood , is ono ol
the most impressive lessons tno Masons the
Odd Fellows , the Pythlans and a host o
other orders give to the aspirant for
honors in their midst. To these
who labor zealously In the ranks
of thesu orders to attain an cmi
nont point in knighthood or chivalry , it wil
bo interesting to review the orders of knight
hood in Gre.it Britain , the membership o
'which ' is limited and select but whoso origin
Is more the less Interesting.
It need not bo presumed that the operations
of these orders are synonymous In their du
ties to thu great secret and benevolent or
gunUatlons of this ago , for the qualifications
for membership necessarily curtail in u degree
greo the good they might render , yet to
tbolr country they are especially serviceable ! .
In Great Britain there are seven orders 01
knighthood. Of these the most noble order
of the garter Is the oldest and most eminent
This order was founded by King Edward III ,
it Is claimed on April SW , 11H-I , yet this is dis
puted by some. Thcsu trace tlio origin of
the order bank to 11U3 when on St. George's
day Kichard I compelled twonty-six of his
best knights to wear M thing of blue leather
on the leg In a flijlit with the Inlldels. This
version however is not as popular as the
former. Of that it I.s said that King Edward
III was dancing with the countess of Salis
bury at a bull when the lady dropped her
garter ; the king secured tlio tiny article , il
is said to have been tiny , and tied it around
his own leg , very near the ankle however ,
his notion of COUMO attracted much ntten-
on and the monarch returned the article to
s fair owner with tlio remark ; "Honi solt
ui inul y ponso" Evil bo to him that evi
thinks" words which nro yet the motto of
the ordor. The king said to those about ;
"Shortly you shall sen that garter advanced to
so high an honor and renown us to nccoun
yourselves supremely happy to wear it. "
Since the rol n of Edward IV ro ladies save
the sovereign are admitted to this order
The distinguishing badges of the order an
the collar , budge , star , garter , pcorgo am
lesser gcorgo. There are also a mantle surcout
hat and plume. This order comprises the
sovereign , twenty-live knight companions
and lineal descendants of George 11 , , who
may bo chosen by the Rovcrt'lfirn.
In lilW the most hoiiornblo order of the
Hath WAS Instituted and wont through varl
ouschanges for tlio bnttcr In 1725 , 1S15 uni
U'47. Thu order Is composed of three classes
In the lirst-clnss the number of Knights
Grand Cross is limited to llfty for military
and twenty-live fur civil duties. In tbo sec
OIK' class l.Ut for thu military and sixty for
the civil ; in the third-class U'JO for
military and 200 for tu civil
No ofllcer can be nominated to the military
division of the third class unless his name
has recalvod a special mention in nction
against the enemy of his country , The order
dor derived its numo from the proposed ror
oniony of initiation which was in the nature
of a bath. This ceremony was first Intro
dncod in the coronation of Henry IV. in 18W
and the last timn It was used was at the cor
cnntion of Charles II. In lt 3.
The most undent and most noble order o
the 1'liistlo was revived in 10-37 by J nines II
nnd re-ostaullfhed in 1703 in the reign o
Quean Anno.
In February , 17S3 , George HI. Instituted
the most illustrious order of St. Patrick.
Queen Victoria instituted the most ex
alted Order of tne Slur in 1601.
Thu most most distinguished Order of St
Michael and St. Gtorgu was created in 161 ! ?

Hum IV , when the Hritish sovereign ceased
to bo monarch oT Hanover.
Knights Bachelors may prolix "Sir" to
their names , yet tlfcy do not constitute nu
order , and the appellation Is simply n degree
in rank.
Of all these orders the sovereign is a sort
of ex-oflicio members. The members of these
orders rank socially as follows : Kuightsof
the Garter , Knights Grand Cross of the
Bath , Grand Commanders Star of India ,
Grand Cross St. Michael and St. George ,
Commanders of the Bath , Commanders
Star of India , Commanders' St. Michael and
St. George , Knights Hachclois , Companions
of thu Bath , Companions Star of India , Com
panions St. Michael and St. George. Mem
bers of the orders ThUtle , St. Patrick and
Guclphie have no particular social prece
dence thereby.
It is perhaps true that of all these orders
there are but two , a membership of which
signifies that the person Is entitled to especial
honor. These are the Bath and Star of
India. When the emblems of these two
orders arc worn it is excellent evidence that
the wearer has distinguished himself In his
country's service. It is said that the order
of the Hath was once conferred upon a
young American naval lieutenant for
distinguished services rendered the British
government. This , however , is the only in-
stanca wherein the ordur lias been conferred
upon any ofllcer below tlio rank of major In
the army or commander in the navy. These
orders differ materially from the secret or-
Sanitations In which American's take pride ,
yet they may bo regarded as effective of
much good to these who are fortunate
enough to become members us well as the
nation in whoso Interest they were Instituted.
The Or < ler of Videttes.
Ono year ago there was organized Bimul
anoously in Chicago and Indianapolis an or
gani/ation known as "Tho National Order of
Videttes. " Thu association is n secret
organl/atlon with all the ritualistic provisions
for oath of secrecy nnd faithfulness and im
pressive ceremonies of initiation , The system
of the organization is on the military plan ;
the state organizations uro known as bri
gades , and are divided into regiments and
companies. It is claimed that the order has
a membership of 600,000 men , each of whom
are solemnly pledged to support
TllH OIllKCTS OF TUB OllDl'lt ,
which nro as follows :
To maintain the declaration of indepen
dence as the foundation of our principles ,
The preservation of our country from
foreign interference in our monetary and
land systems of finance and land.
No membership with thosu who hold alle
giance with any foreign power claiming
citizenship , but aliens at heart.
Opposition to contract pauper Immigration
for the purpose of destroying American
workmen.
Our own Industries first , last nnd always.
Our publio senool system shall bo main
tained and improved no sectarian interfer
ence from any source. >
No division of publio funds for sectarian
schools.
No special privileges for any class , but
just and equitable laws for nil ,
The cultivation of the homo principle by
the ownership of homes homes for the
homeless , laud for thu landless.
A complete ami perfect union. Ono gov
ernment , one flag' and equal rights for all.
Equality , liberty , fraternity , the climax of
our hopes the end sought to bo obtained.
Thus it will bo seen that the association is
of a political natuio ; and it is said that one
of the main objects of the order U the ad
vancement of the interests of a prominent ,
presidential candidate.

The St. Louis Freemasons have decided to
have a magnificent temple. The plans for
the cdillce have bcon drawn , and negotia
tions are in progress for the purchase of a
.suitable piceo of property to erect it on. Pos
sibly from the fact that other schemes of a
similar kind have not been consumatcd , the
fraternity is rather slow in making the mat
ter public. A company composed of mem
bers of the fraternity 1ms been organized ,
andn.ro pushing the work forward ns rap
idly as possible. Since the sale of Masonic
hall , at Seventh and Market streets , some
years ago , which was then the properly of
the grand lodge , the St. Louis lodges have
owned no hall , nor have they had a central
place of mooting. Hence the necessity spurs
them on to the erection of u building suitable
for their purposes.
DAT THIS recent session of the A. O.JU. W. ,
of California , legislation was adopted pro
viding for the following :
That after a member had been suspended
for more than three months , ho must make
application for reinstatement In writing.
That fees may bo reduced , at the opinion
of lodges , us follows : Two doll.ir.s for propo
sition fee , FJ for J. W. degree , f4 for the W.
degico , 1 for the bcncflutary r.crtlllcato div
poslt. This makes the minimum $10 , which
heretofore has been . $15.
That recorders , Humidors and receivers
shall hereafter lie elected annually , on tliulast
stated meeting In November ,
Nominations for elective ofllrers must bo
made only on the two meetings preceding
that of the regular flection , cxt'upt when the
nominations fur nnolllco all decline.
Hereafter all deaths during a month up to
the 2.'td instant of xnlil month , are to bo in
cluded In the next month's assessment , which
shall bo issued not latur than the - . " > Ui.
An amendment permitting subordinate
lodges to pay bcnoflcmry assusstnont'j out of
their general fund was adopted.
When applicants are rejected , all fpns paid
by them are to bo returned , except thu uiedi-
leal examination fee.
It wns nmdo the duty of the P. M. W. of o
ledge to investlt'iito charges and prefer them
whoft notified of oiTenHo committed by a
member or personally cogulmit of such of
fense against the un'or.

fuud.
