Sir Knights George S. Smith and DoWitt
O. Sutfcu , of Omaha , remained In Washing
ton to present to the national museum u fao
cimlloof the Nebraska nrnu done In corn.
The shield is about three feet square and is
made of corn , yellow grains constituting the
gold ground of the shield and red corn the
blood-red cross. Above the shield are the
words , ' 'Knights Templar of Nebraska. "
Tno border of the frame surrounding the
shield IH made of cross-sections of cars of
This shield will bo placed in a prominent
position as a memorial among the attractions
of the Smithsonian institute.
It was demonstrated during the parade
that the arms of the Knights Templar of
Nebraska are ns well known in this country
as ate the arms of thu Prince of Wales in
The Idea of n distinctive mark originated *
nbout seventeen years ago , when the gold
shield ami the red cross was adoptedand has
been used since on the seal of the grand
coinmandery , its letter heads and on all docu
ments. The cross boars the words "Lux ,
Dux , Lex , Hex , " the X being common to all
thu words. Uoncath the shield is u streamer
bearing the words "Domlnlbuo in Omnibus. "
' 'no banner of the grand eommandory
bears those arms on Its face , with no other
inscription , On the reverse of the banner
nru the words , "Grand Commundery , Knights
Templar of Nebraska , "
When the Isebraslta contingent formed in
line for the grand parade , their banner was
placed nt the head of the division. The
standard bearer turned the reverse to the
front and , when asked by ono of
the grand officers why ho did
not carry the cross to the front
replied : "Why people won't know who wa
a ro unless they can see the name of the
tale. "
"You turn it around , " said the officer ,
"and carry It that way for u mile , and if you
don't think by that tlmo that the pcoplo know
what that cross and shield mean you can
liuvo It your way. "
The banner was carried In the manner in
dicated , but with many misgivings on the
jmrt of iho standard-bearer. As the column
moved along the streets , however , the ex.
clumutlons of "Hero comes Nebraska , "
"That is the Nebraska arms , " "Tins Is the
Nebraska commandcry , " etc. , etc. , fell on
Ids ears in a continual stream and ho did
not think it nccimarv to rovcrso the stand
Nebraska' badges were In great demand on
all sides. The gieater number of the Sir
Knights In attendance were bent on making
collections of badges from the different com-
muudencf , and no collection ) vas thought
complete unless it contained n Nebraska
badge. As a consequence the demand was

Knights were besieged by anxious collectors

Komo of the members of eastern comman-

very funny questions.

Mount Cavalry commandcry , No. 1 , was
most cordially received and entertained while
at the conclave by Do Molay coramamlery ,
No. 4 , of Washington , D. C. The most inti
mate relations exist between these two or
ganiatlons. Nothing was too good for the
Omaha . A of the "
knights. sight "open so-
same" of the Nebraska arms was all that
was necessary to insure a warm welcome and
every attention.
On Tuesday evening Mount Cavalry com-
mandery visited Do Molay in response
to an Invitation and was most
hospitably entertained. The Sir Knights
and their ladies vied with ono another to sco
that their guests lacked nothing.
During tno Gvcmnir , Alt. Calvary presented
to Do Molay a fac-similo of the handsome
banner of the former , done in immortelles
an exquisite piece of work. The presenta
tion was made by Eminent Sir Knight Hop-
klnscommnndcrof , Mt. Calvary commnndory.
Eminent Sir Knight Kobert 'iIlioston ,
commander of Do Molay coinmandery , ac
cepted it on behalf of his fellow Sir Knights ,
with a few well chosen words of thanks. At
the sumo tlmo there was presented to Do
Molay coinmandery a copy of the minutes of
Mt. Calvary commnndcry's proceedings at
the tlmo which engendered the more than
friendly relations which exist between these
two commandoriQs : namely , the burial of
Major T. T. Thornburg , a prominent mem
ber of Do Molay commandory , who was
killed in n light with the Utu Indians on Sep
tember 20 , 1679 ,
Mho following account of this event is
taken from Tin : Bin : Hies :
The following dispatch was received at
department headquarters hero :

gentleman and gallant soldier never lived.
Accept my condolence. Wo hope to recover
the body , which lies only ubnut llvo hundred
yards from hero. Ciuitur : , Adjutant.
The place in which this light occurred Is
onu of the most rugged and inaccessible
mountain regions in the country a spot

six hundred warriors , because , us they
claimed , their agent was starving them.

cavalry and ono of Infantry In his command

deceived by the friendly advances of the
Indians and was led into an ambush.
His body was not discovered until October
8 , and was brought to Omaha on Tucsdav ,
October 21 , where the casket was received
by a delegation of knights from Mt. Calvary
rnmmaiidory and escorted to Free Allisons'
hull. The remains lay In state in the asylum
of the above organization until the following
day , when the funeral took place ,
The following Is from TUB Un : of Octo
ber W :
"A special guard of honor representing
DuMolay comnuindary , of Washington , ap

Tno ceremony at the grave was the usual
Knight Templar service , which wa supple-
merited by iin eloquent obituary prepared by
a member of Alt , Calvary eoinmandory.
Aftci- reviewing Major Thornburgh's life
and gallant conduct us an officer , the ad
dress concluded with an appropriate extract
from "The Bivouac of the Dead. "
On May 7,1SSO , a delegation from DoMolav
commandory arrived In Omaha , bringing
with tlmm the resolutions passed by the
eommandory arid presented thom to Mt.
Calvary coininandory. The following is a
descrintion ol the resolutions as published in
TUB UCR of May 8 , 18SO :
"Tlio memorial is inclosed in a magnificent
gold frame tlireo feet square , elegantly cm-
bossed and chased. Across the face is the
red cross of the order and its motto , 'In Hoe
Signo Vinces. ' The resolutions themselves
are a masterpiece of artistic penmanship ,
bearing all the appearance of a finished steel
engraving. They return the thanks of Do
Molay coinmandery , No.I , of Washington ,
D. C.t to Ml. Calvary commiuidery for their
prompt action in paying the last sad rites to
their deceased brother , Major T. T. Thorn-
burgh. The resolution else declares Sir
Knights Allen , Howcn , Doucll , LInlngcr ,
Chase and Long , who acted as mounted escort
cert at the funeral on bolialf of DoMolcy
eommandory , honorary members of DcMo-
lay commandcry.
"In addition. Sir Knight Pearson brought
with him six elegant black satin badges ol
liis commandcry for the newly elected hon
orary members. The badges bear on their
fact ) a heavy gold deslrn of u mounted knight
with the inscription , 'DeMolay Couiniandery ,
No. 4 , Washington , D. C. '
The extract alluded to above was an ac
count of these proceeding * and a copy of the
obituary as givnn.
The brotherly feeling already existing was
greatly strengthened by this recalling of un
historical event in which both cominanderies
bore such a prominent part and many eyes ,
especially those of the older knights , wore
moist at the recollections which were re

At the session of 1MT the constitution was
amended in such a way as to allow lodges to
admit members suspended for non-payment
of dues on such terms as they might pro
scribe , and also to admit mombsrs of de
funct lodges not able to get cards. This
wus to make it easy for soldiers and others
who had boon drappol through the mis
fortunes of war , to regain membership in
the order , which oven four years of civil
war failed to divide or to create n feeling of

All effort ? toward harmonizing the English

the Manchester Unity Is the father of Amer
ican Oddfcllowship. although Wlldoy was
not a member of the former organization
when thu ilrat lodge was self-constituted In
Uultlmoro , but a charter was afterward
granted by the Duke of York's ' lodge , ao-
cepted by Washington lodge , and eubso-
quuutly upprored by the Grand Committee.
After the severance of all ties between
American ana English Odd Fellowship , an
other revision of the ritual was deemed ad
visable , and in 18 U 15 , ll. Chapin , of Massa
chusetts ; J L. Uidgely , of Maryland ; .lames
D. McCabe , of Virginia ; J. A. Kennedy , of
Now York , and W. W. Moore , District of
Columbia , were appointed a committee to
perform the work. Thu revision was thor
ough and the reform great , the aim being to
improve the morals , enlarge the fundamental
principles of the order , and ctarato the character -
actor of its members. Changes and altera
tions have boon made since , as the necessities
of the order seemed to demand. The last re
vision was made in I'sfsO ' , 11 committee of thir
teen having been appointed for the purpose at
the preceding session. Tills revision was per
haps more Hwecping in its changes than any
of the former attempts. Many alterations
were made in the forms and ceremonies , and
the ritualistic work was subjected to an
almost complete revision. In the old work
there were live degrees in the subordinate
lodge , but the commitlou reduced this iiiuii-
lior , condensing and combining the lessons
of the live into three. This is now known
among Odd .Follows us the now work , and is
in use at the present lime , v.ithbut little
disposition for a change.
It was several years after thu founding of
Odd ITcliowHhlp when the encampment was
recognized as u separate branch of the order.
This hud its origin in what might be termed
side degrees , a brief history of which will
not bo uninteresting to the mumoers.
Early in 1810 three degrees , designated
ns the jj'irst or White degree , Second
or Hluo degree , Third or Scarlet -
lot degree , wore adopted b'y the Manches
ter Unity. They were conferred only
as n toward for faithful services and
regular attendance at lodges. They portrayed
trayed the beautiful lessons of to day as
taught in the encampment brunch and scorn
to have been the foundation upon which it
started. The fourth , or Golden Kule degree ,
was first known in America at the organlz i-
tlon of the grand louge of Maryland in 1S21.
It ; was of English origin. Six past grands
were present at the meeting , and nnu con
ferred the degree on the other live. The de
gree was confined to past grands who held
membership in the grand lodge , and WHS
only conferred in that body until ISi" . What
Is now the Koynl Purple , llrst known ns the
iltth degree , is supposed to be of American
origin , although there is no record of this
fact. Thomas Wildey , the father of Amer
ican oadfoliowftlnp , communicated the de
gree In person , hut lie never claimed to bo
the author , nor did ho ever , BO far us known ,
give the particulars as to its origin.
Thu growth of oddfollownhlp has been
marvelous , while the sums spent for the re
lief of distressed brothers , their widows and
orphans , and the burial of thu dead have
been enormous. I s works of charity are
without tne usual nourish of trumpets , and
uru known only to the active and attending
members and their immediate- friends and
families. For this Tt-uson , like t ho history of
