y Corps. Wherever danger has been found and glory to be won, the heroes who have fought for immortality have been distinguished by some emblem to which every victory added a new lustre. They looked upon their badge with pride, for to it they had given its fame. In the homes of smiling peace it recalled the days of courageous endurance and the hours of deadly strifeand it solaced the moment of death, for it was a symbol of a life of heroism and self-denial. The poets still sing of the Templar's cross, the Crescent of the Turks, the Chalice of the hunted Christian, and the White plume of Murat, that crested the wave of valor sweeping resistlessly to victory. Soldiers! to you is given a chance in this Spring Campaign of making this badge immortal. Let History record that on the banks of the James thirty thousand freemen not only gained their own liberty but shattered the prejudice of the world, and gave to the Land of their birth Peace, Union, and Liberty. Godfrey Weitzel

ent. Who will help us? Memorial day has been observed at various points in the South, and will be yet observed at others on the days designated, by the local Associations, and the beautiful custom of decking with flowers the graves of our heroic dead, has lost none of its hold on the hearts of our fair women and brave men. May it never cease to attract the usual interest and awaken the hallowed memories which cluster around it! As we write this paragraph our city is full of Knights Templar from Boston and Providence — the Governor of the Commonwealth, the Mayor of the city, and other representative men, have given them formal welcome in speeches of rare eloquence and appropriateness — and our people generally are vieing with each other to entertain and amuse them, while their bands are making the air reverberate with alternate strains of Dixie, and Star-spangled banner, Bonny blue flag, and Hail Columbia. The Knights have seemed to appreciate the kindness of our people, and h

the top facet of the monument is as follows: In this plaza, Gen. S. W. Kearney, U. S. A., proclaimed the peaceable annexation of New Mexico on Aug. 19, 1846. On the face of the stone fronting towards the Old Palace are inscribed the following extracts from General Kearney's address on that memorable day: We come as friends to make you a part of the United States. In our government all men are equal. Every man has a right to serve God according to his heart. ] Grand Commandery, Knights Templar, organized at Santa Fe......Aug. 21, 1901 [The records of the Civil War and the late war with Spain show that, in proportion to her population, New Mexico has furnished more troops to uphold the national flag than any other State or Territory in the Union.] According to a bulletin issued by the census bureau, of the entire population of 195,310, 104,228 are males, and 91,083 females.

The Cambridge Royal Arch Chapter was chartered in 1864, and Cambridge Commandery of Knights Templar in 1890. Freemasonry in Cambridge owes much to Rev. Lucius R. Paige, who has had an interesting Masonic history. As the natural result of early elections and of a very long life (Dr. Paige is now in his ninety-fifth year), he is the senior Pelections and of a very long life (Dr. Paige is now in his ninety-fifth year), he is the senior Past Master of Masons in Massachusetts, the senior Past Commander of Knights Templar in the State and probably in the United States. It is eminently fitting that any memorial of Freemasonry in Cambridge should contain affectionate tribute to one who championed this cause when it most needed friends, and who has always brought to its service unwavering fidelity, steady judgment, and unusual ability.

not supply. It was plain to see where his boyhood had drawn its romantic inspiration. His imagination was colored and imbued with the light of the shadowy past, and was richly stored with the unreal but life-like creations which the genius of Shakespeare and Scott had evoked from the ideal world. He had lingered spellbound, among the scenes of mediaeval chivalry. His spirit had dwelt, until almost naturalized, in the mystic dreamland they peopled—among paladins and crusaders and Knights Templar; with Monmouth and Percy—with Bois-Gilbert and Ivanhoe, and the bold McGregor——with the cavaliers of Rupert, and the iron enthusiasts of Fairfax. As Judge Bullard remarks of him, he had the talent of an Italian improvisatore, and could speak the thoughts of poetry with the inspiration of oratory, and in the tones of music. The fluency of his speech was unbroken—no syllable unpronounced—not a ripple on the smooth and brilliant tide. Probably he never hesitated for a word in his life.

He had risen to the position of Grand Chief Templar of the Grand Commandery of Knight Templars of Georgia, and one of Georgia's most excellent citizens. Upon making known my purpose to these young friends, they responded as did tent number one, and promised their cordial support.
