D • FRATERNITY but did not. The printer's devil got away with the manuscript. We were fortunate, however, to rescue a copy and are pleased to have the original poem appear in this issue. The author, Bro. Corum, is an able writer and gifted by nature as a poet of known ability. His writings and jpoetical works have long since been sought often by standard periodicals. Fraternity, as well as our readers, appre- ciate his efforts. The open meeting -of Polytechnic Lodge No. 436 on Thursday evening, June 18, was a grand success. The hall was crowded, a splendid program was rendered and very much enjoyed by all; refreshments were served. Bro. J. C. Coons, our District Deputy in charge of the lodge, congratulates himself tfpon having the best entertainment committee ever appointed for such work. The lodge is only six weeks old, numbers about fifty members, and is moving along as if they were old-timers. Meetings are held every Thursday night, which makes it a leader—not a follower. The Edi...

6 FRATERNITY above date, which was well received and greatly enjoyed by all: Address of welcome District Deputy J. C. Coons Overture—Piano Solo Selected Address Hon. E. S. Royall, Supreme President Song—"The Home Over There" Mr. Walter E. Taylor and Miss Elma Taylor, Piano Accompaniment. Reading—"How Ruby Played" Mrs. W. D. House It is needless to say that the song en- titled, "The Home Over There," rendered as a parody on negro religion, by W. E. Taylor and his daughter, Miss Elma, just brought down the house. Everybody en- joyed the same to overflowing, is a mild expression. The reading, "How Ruby Played," as recited by Mrs. W. D. House, was a masterpiece and afforded so much pleas- ure and gave such general satisfaction that her services were engaged for the future for several months ahead. At the conclusion of the program ice cream and cake was served and an hour spent in social good fellowship. o MAN'S SUPREME PROBLEM. By N. J. Wade, Attorney-at-Law, Fort Worth, Texas. Paper No...

FRATERNITY ness, and in cases of impoverishment,— if not brought on by their own folly,— and of wrongful imprisonment, in losses by fire, water or shipwreck, aid by loans, provision of work, and lastly the burial of the dead. It included further the as* sistance of the poor and sick, and the visitation and comfort of prisoners not belonging to the guild." Bacon in 1904 gave us this brief and comprehensive definition of the successor of the guild, the modern mutual benefit life insurance organizations: "They have come promi- nently into view of the public only dur- ing the last 35 years. From this fact we are not to conclude that they are wholly a modern institution; on the contrary, they are the composite results of the ex- perience of many generations, and even centuries, they represent what is best and most useful of the multitude of social associations of all kinds that have ex- isted in all times in all lands. They seem to have sprung suddenly into the strength of nature life, y...

FRATERNITY SELLING INSURANCE IS LIKE OTHER PROFESSIONS. 5 - I I I I i&i'i The general impression prevails that life insurance solicitors are too "persis- tent While I agree that there is a proper time and place for the transac- tion of all kinds of business, and that every business man should have the proper consideration for the rights of those with whom he seeks to do busi- ness, I must insist that the business of soliciting life insurance, while it requires great earnestness and determination of purpose, is no greater than is required, or necessary, to succeed in other pro- fessions and business occupations. To illustrate my point I beg to call atten- tion to what is necessary in the work of some of the professions and business occupations. Who is more earnest, or more per- sistent, than the minister of the gospel? First of all, it is necessary for him to take people by the arm and lead them to the altar. It is necessary for him to call upon them at their homes and pray with ...

Wade, Attorney-at-Law, Fort Worth, Texas. Paper No. 5 Addressing the 1914 naval graduates, President Wilson used these forceful words: "You should have the point of view of America, with regard to her Navy and Army, that she is using them as the in- jstruments of civilization, not as instru- ments of aggression. The idea of Amer- ica is to serve humanity, and every time you let the stars' and stripes free to the wind you ought to'realize that you are not on an errand of cbnquest, but on an errand of service." In his Fourth of July address at Philadelphia he said: "One of the most serious questions for sober-minded men to address them- selves to in these United States is what are we going to do with the influence and power of this great nation. Are we going to play the old rol...

2 FRATERNITY society has funds and the holder re- mains in good standing in his local lodge. The policy presupposes value re- ceived,'the certificate contemplates all the laws of the order existing or that may exist. While both instruments may be said to be contracts, the policy is executed, and the certificate executory in the sense that it is affected by con- tingencies such as arise out of all cove- nants. The policy cannot be terminated by the insurer, the certificate ceases upon the expulsion of the member by the local lodge. Old line insurance came into existence in the first part of the eighteenth cen- tury in England. In its incipiency its plans were simple and their execution crude and uncertain. Beacon says: "The first regular life insurance company was probably 'The Amicable Society for a perpetual Assurance Office,' founded in London in 1706 by Royal Charter. The scheme was simply to raise a fixed con- tribution from each member and from the proceeds to distribute a cert...

FRATERNITY harmless, but very liable to abuse for evident reasons. If within the appointed time, the future men and women in this picture, after weighing us in the balance, approve us, their verdict, overruling all others, will be final and supreme, so far as our earthly fame is concerned. They will base it upon only one simple question of fact: "Have our lives been of service to our fellow men?" Along this line Haz- litt said: "Those only deserve a monu- ment who do not need one; that is, who have reared themselves a monument in the minds and memories of men." Haw- thorn said: "The marble keeps merely a cold and sad memory of a man who would else be forgotten. No man who needs a monument ought ever have one." Crabbe more precisely puts it: "But monuments themselves, memorials need." Did you ever imagine what Heaven would look like should its door stand ajar just long enough for one peep? Here it is. This is a picture of the door of Heaven. Isn't it fine? Really, would you want Heav...

FRATERNITY 6 article are facts. Read the article, then pass it on to your neighbor. © I © 3 TODAY. 'A Pengravure," by One of Fort Worth's Oldest Writers. "Today!" a very little word, com- pounded of the preposition "To" and the common noun "Day," signifying, "Now, this present day." Study and ponder the word welt, for the longer you study that preposition "To" and noun "Day," the more forcibly the truth is borne upon you that "To- day" alone is ours; the "Yesterdays" are of the Past; the "Tomorrows" are members of the unknown Future. "Today" is the Tommorrow of Yes- terday, and the Yesterday of Tomorrow. "Today" is the Bride of Yesterday, and the Widow of Tomorrow. "Today" is the Burial-ground of Yes- terday; and the Resurrection or Dawn of Tomorrow. "Today" is the Axis upon which swing the alternate Yesterdays and To- morrows. Today, gird on your armor bright, "Today" is ours alone— "The Yesterdays" are sunk in night, "Tomorrow's" yet to come! Grasp the bright jewels as they pass,—...

6 FRATERNITY "TONIGHT." i r \ I If I should die tonight, My friends would cell to mind with loving thought, Some kindly deed the icy hand had wrought; Some gentle word the frozen lips had said, Errands on which willing feet had sped. The memory of selfishness and pride And hasty words would all be put aside, And I should be loved and mourned, if I were dead tonight. Every heart estranged would turn once more to me, Recalling other days remorsefully. The eyes that chill me with averted glance Would look upon me as of yore, per- chance, And soften in the old familiar way. Sweet, dear friends, I pray thee tonight, Keep not your kisses for my dead, cold brow. My way is lonely; let me feel them now. Deal gently with me, I am travel worn. Think kindly of me; my heart is bruised, My faltering feet are pierced with many a thorn. Forgive—dear heart estranged, as I forgive. When dreamless rest is mine, I shall not need thee; Nor thy love and tenderness for which I long tonight. Be kind—soul i...

FRATERNITY * scalps and polecat hides. The train be- came much crowded after we got on the main line at Quanah, but no one crowd- ed me. I had plenty of room all the way into Fort Worth. Then I took a bath.-—Industrial Record. FRATERNALISM THE BASIS. Fraternalism bases its operation on actual cost. Aside from its beneficial provisions, it affords opportunities whose value cannot be computed in a financial way. It bands together men and women for mutual well-being and protection. It today is considering the important step of so planning that whole families may be included in the protec- tion thus afforded. In many other ways may its beneficial operation be revealed. Everything depends upon the manner in which members exercise their privi- leges and meet their responsibilities. If they are capable of self-government—if they are sufficiently advised to take up the responsibilities of such form of operation—the institutions with wh.ch they are identified cannot but succeed and prosper. ...

FRATERNITY WHEN LOVE IS KING AND REIGN3. By Albert Clark. When Love is king, the rose is sweet And skies are ever blue, And friends are loyal as the the stars, For Love is kind and true. No wintry days can come between With all their woes and pains, To crush the inner shrine called Truth, When Love is king and reigns. When Love is king, our sweetest song Is ever on our lips, And arms are closed about our form— We feel the finger-tips Of those we loved in other days Ere sorrow brought its gloom, We hear the humming of the bees From every flower in bloom. When Love is king, it matters not If skies are dull and gray, There's sunlight, and the songbirds seem To sing as twice as gay. There's music in the very trees And in the brooklet, too, And so it matters not, if clouds Have hoid the azure blue. When Love is king, the heart is strong Beneath its loaod of care, And hate dies out and kindly deeds Are blooming everywhere. We climb the lofty mountain peaks Complaining not of pains; We cla...

FRATERNITY ploded. The only way to eradicate Vesuvius is to destroy the Earth. So, Brotherhood in all its intensity will exist until the human race is no more. The principle of the volcano exists whether in a state of eruption or not. So, Brotherhood exists in time of war as well as in peace. Today, Brotherhood was never more exalted, yet the world's catastrophe is riding on the wings of thunder, while mighty governments are fighting across their open graves. Has Brotherhood failed Was the voice above the cradle of the races of men asking, "where is thy brother," idle? Physiology teaches that while in a state of eruption the volcano is a guar- antee of safety rather than a signal of danger. The real danger lies in the physical forces in the earth which make the eruption possible and necessary. The volcano in its latent state may be ages in forming. Social phenomena, like physical, more often relate to the past rather than the present. The san- guinary European conflict, relates but ...

S\ FRATERNITY 3 ! O O which stalk will grow the best ear of corn until ripening time. These little fellows constitute the su- preme court, the tribunal which is to pass final judgment on us. It is un- important how many bouquets we hand ourselves or throw at each other, or whether we throw any or not. Vanity often gives us a hunch and we exclaim, "I would rather have flowers before than after I am dead!" This is called taking an interlocutory judgment by default; or, taking judgment subject to proof—a practice commendable and harmless, but very liable to abuse for evident reasons. If within the appointed time, the future men and women in this picture, after weighing us in the balance, approve us, their verdict, overruling all others, will be final and supreme, so far as our earthly fame is concerned.

o o f o It is said that the habit of persistence is the habit of victory. Let us therefore persist in holding regular meetings, comply with the Laws of the Order, and success will crown our efforts. The Editor of Fraternity congratu- lates himself that he is not altogether without enemies, for people who have no enemies do not as a rule have many friends. Since our last issue there have been three new lodges added to our Roster, one each at Bridgeport, Sanger and Kel- ler. All have rolled up quite a hand- some membership, and a continuation of enthusiasm is promised. Watch the U. B. A. Grow! The Fraternal System is growing. The U. B. A. has been a strong part of that system for nineteen years, and has paid out to beneficiaries during that short time the handsome sum of nearly $800,000.00. Watch The U. B. A. Grow!

-J FRATERNITY • I O Q V A PART OF GOD'S PLAN. By Cora Melton Cross. Don't you see that you are needed In this busy world of ours, And that each must bear the thorn pricks If he gather any flowers? That the "All Wise" must intend it, All the bitter with the sweet, As the violets give out perfume Crushed to death beneath our feet. Can't you realize, ambition, —Could we see it gratified,— Would leave life without a mission, We'd be still dissatisfied? And if you, by merely wishing, Could obtain your heart's request, Life, perchance, would lose its object, Everything that gives it zest. Don't you know your Heavenly Father Wisely gives to you and me, Not the things, perhaps, we want most, But, what's best for us, you see? (Specially prepared for Fraterntiy.

8 FRATERNITY O factor in the struggle for success. A person might saw and- hammer for years and not build a presentable house; he must have a plan, must know just what he is going to do and how to make every stroke count. And so must you plan your work if you do not wish to waste your effort. And remember this, a person is not only the "architect" of his own fortune, but he is the builder as well. If you believe in your true self and plan and work instead of indulging in mere wishes, you will surely accomplish your desires. As you plan and as you work, the way becomes easier; you learn to recognize opportunities for your advancement as they present them- selves, you become better able to bring all your resources to bear upon the con- summation of your ambition, your progress becomes more rapid—you achieve success! But, you must make a start—do it now.—American Casualty Agency Bulle- tin. FIDELITY. Jack C. Corum. I promised you, ol' pal of mine, That through our lives I would be true...
