"ftiliMMi fc FRATERNITY O O Fraternalism strives to bring the peo- ple together in the bonds of social and fraternal union in a manner which will upbuild character and elevate ideals. Fraternalism should be given greater attention. Revive your lodge meetings with a good old-fashioned hand-shake of wel- come; then go out and invite your friends to become members of the U. B. A. Do it now and Watch the U. B. A. Grow. Let us know what your lodge is doing so that we can tell. We never say anything in Fraternity about your lodge because we never hear from you. Help Boost a little, and Watch the U. B. A. Grow. If you believe in the U. B. A., then prove your faith by doing something for it. Get a new member once in a while; make this resolution, then carry it out. Fraternal insurance is good. The Edi- tor has carried Three Thousand Dollars worth in one Organization for thirty- five years; it has been getting better as the years roll along. Too much cannot be said in favor of Fraternal insu...

FRATERNITY seated on the window-sill, "Cousin" crept down statirs, leaving all doors open in her passage,—as a source of cheer or courage to both. Presently, a terrible noise was heard below. Thump, rattle, bang! and a deep voice thundered, "Who is there!" "Me!" in a quavering tone. "Who is me?" questioned the deep voice. "Melissa!" was the astounding answer. By this time, the father recognizing his daughter, laughed and said—"Is that you, daughter?" Securing the coveted candle, she made answer, and hastened up the stairs to the other Melissa crouched there in the darkness. Who sent out to the world this won- derful production, the writer of this "Recollection" cannot say. If the name of author was on the title page,—the horrors of the story caused it to sink into oblivion. Various Histories came in regular rotation; but every Friday evening was hailed with delight; for some favorite author had been selected for the night and Saturday reading. Caroline Lee Heittz—that distin- guishe...

8 FRATERNITY usual, I found the membership alive to the interest of the order; Supreme Con- ductor Mrs. Mody Voigt and Mrs. J. L. Randall hustling for new members. At night it was my pleasure to meet with the lodge, which was well attended, and all present manifested great interest in its future development. Several candi- dates were initiated and I was informed that they never have a meeting night without initiations. Sister Anna Wright, the queenly President, presides with much dignity. In fact that is a lodge that is run by the women almost ex- clusively. They do allow Brother Geo. Shields to act as Secretary. I only wish that other lodges in our jurisdiction would emulate the example of Banner Lodge No. 6 to the extent that they would keep the U. B. A. in the public eye, and would, through the efforts of the local membership, add monthly from their friends to the material growth of their lodge. We all took an obligation when becoming a member to do all in our power to build up t...

As we have had good rains all over the State and the harvest is at hand, I feel it my duty to address this earnest plea to the membership to get busy and help us make this the greatest season of our history. While we have some regular agents in the field that are doing fine work, giving all their time and energy to building up the order, it becomes harder each year to retain them or get new ones, from the fact that competition gets stronger all the while; and the fur- ther fact that they receive but little support from the membership. I often notice where the membership of some other fraternal order has put on a contest and have secured additions to their lodge membership, but it seems that our members never do. One way you can serve the orde...

FRATERNITY mm A IK * S«" „ SEv: The Hope of Our Country are Silent Pleaders for Protection members. Degree work appeals strong- ly to them. Entertainments are an ever increasing source of interest. "It is far better and just as interest- ing for children to join a lodge as it is for them to join a social club. By join- ing a lodge they not only have an en- joyable time, but also assist in a great work of benevolence. By taking your children to the meeting you will know that they are in good company. At an early age they have impressed upon their minds the great principles for which we are striving." I have a letter from the supreme sec- retary of the United Artisans contain- ing much thought: "I herewith enclose you under separate cover a copy of our by-laws and a card showing our tables and information with reference to whole family insurance. We believe whole family insurance is a coming proposi- tion to fraternals as it is a truly fra- ternal duty to protect the children as well ...

FRATERNITY porting, has become so "smart" he has contempt rather than respect for his parents' lodge and they in turn seeing he is well advanced in years cease to feel the same keen importance in keeping lip their insurance for his protection, and all the while the old line company who has insured the young man, because the fraternal order was forbidden to do so, takes advantage to premiumize it- self and discount the fraternal order. The fact is one universally admitted that the contest for insurance business is not between a benefit society on one side and some other benefit society on the other side, but it is between the the benefit society on one side and the old line company on the other. The old line company by being given a free hand by law to write children from two years up to sixteen years of age, and the fraternal order forbidden to do so, en- ables the old line company to tie the young growing and future business to itself. It is evident that after the law has been amen...

FRATERNITY k A beautiful poem, "My Church," con- tributed by Mrs. Minnie E. Cone, for this issue, appears in another column. If you are a lover of poetry, read this carefully, then ask yourself, is that "My Church?" Woodrow Wilson's wonderful strength has kept the United States out of war a long time. It seems, however, the Mexicans want a little spanking after all. Surveying the results of the U. B. A.'s work during the past eight months of 1915, we can say that results are most satisfactory. We call upon the mem- bership to continue the good work, and help make 1915 the boosting year of the Order. Many Fraternal Orders are consider- ing the question of "Whole Family In- surance," the subject of which was dis- cussed by N. J. Wade in the August issue of Fraternity. In this issue our readers will find a further discussion on the same subject, to which we call special attention. Don't forget—Buy-it-in-Texas. Don't forget—Buy-it-made-in-Texas.

In this summary of "Favorite Books and their Authors," it is almost impos- sible to give a just rendering of the subject—as so much depends upon the memory of the writer.

# FRATERNITY Since thousands of persons are tuber- culous without knowing it, no one should hawk, sneeze or cough without placing a handkerchief over the mouth. No one should live or work in the room with any person, sick or well, who spits or coughs carelessly. Persons having "colds" should not as- sociate with those having lung trouble. The person having the "cold" is probably more likely than others to be infected. The consumptive is also likely to con- tract the "cold." Contact with consumptives in the open air is less dangerous than a closed room. Consumptives, on their own ac- count, should live out-of-doors or in rooms thoroughly ventilated. Persons living or working with consumptives should see that the room is constantly flooded with fresh air and sunshine. Fresh air and sunshine are deadly to the deadly tubercle bacillus. The consumptive should be clean sha- ven so that the infected sputum will not adhere to his beard and mustache. He should wash his hands before eat- ing ...

The success of an individual depends to a very large extent upon his "prepar- edness" for the future. The man who is going to succeed in life makes the best of the present, and at the same time, looks thoughtfully to the future. This is equally true of an organization such as the United Benevolent Association. Its future must not be neglected. The United Benevolent Association is not an accident. Some twenty years ago a handful of home loving men gathered together and launched our beloved Or- der. It has been buffetted and tossed about, but her successive captains have kept their eyes fixed on the compass, and their hands steady on the wheel, and the worst storms have been successfully weathered. The early days of all sue cessful undertakings...

FRATERNITY •V.- mmsmi Glory, the prettiest flag that floats, and shove it out to sea, without a cannon or a blue jacket and secure instant world peace. But Uncle Sam is not worrying right now about his beautiful colors, but is doing some good hard thinking about" his "proposition." There is no denying that "United" and "Association" as combined in our name are synonomous, and mean precisely the same thing. Is an association conceiv- able that is not united, or a union of per- sons that is not a well defined associa- tion? The idea of a "United Associa- tion" is defensible probably to some ex- tent on the ground of euphony, or poetic license. Either word carries with it in the completest manner the meaning of the other. The situation is analogous to the dutchman who had a cat and kit- ten; he cut a large hole in the door for the cat then cut a small hole for the kitten. I would discard "Union" or "As- sociation." "Benevolent," in its most common use, and to the stranger mind, means p...

FRATERNITY dictions near the beginning of the war, like the predictions regarding Texas weather, have failed. Everything that "couldn't" happen has happened. All predictions made at the start have been disproved. Peace talk has vanished for the present, a long war is now admitted, the allies are in for more trouble, seri- ous defeats have come over Russia. Ger- many at this time appears to be build- ing up more rapidly than her enemies, buf- when will it all end? That is the question. How wonderful is man! He strives To overcome all human ills; He labors well in saving lives, And then he goes to war and fills The trenches with the men he kills. It is to be hoped that something will be developed looking to the proper handling of the crop. Now that Ger- many has come across so handsomely, respecting its naval warfare on neutral ships, how about requiring England to keep hands off with respect to ship- ments of cotton to neutral ports or if need be, the shipping of three million bales ...

At each gust of wind she clapped her hands and cried, "You can't get in, Mr. Storm, you can't get in!" The short winter day was drawing tc a close, and the little girl presently turned from the window and curled her- self up in a big chair, which stood in front of a cheerful grate fire. She had not sat there long, when a lady came into the room, calling out, "Where's the little girl named Marjorie that belongs to this household?" Looking all about, and pretending not to see anyone, she started to leave, say- ing, '"Oh, well, I suspect there isn't such a little girl, so I'll go right back to the sick-room where Mother-lady is!'* "Here I am!" shouted the child, springing up and throwing her arms about the lady. "Please stay with me, Annie Madge, I'm so lonesome." "Oh-ho, so there is a Marjorie-girl after all!" exclaime...
