o ^PUBUUM ?t|L Volume XIV it Nothing 'OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE ORDER' FORT WORTH, TEXAS, JANUARY, 1915 Imposaible" Number 1 PREMIUMS PAID PROMPTLY PROCURED PAST PARTICIPANTS $794,108.70 THE GROWTH OF FRATERNAL , =i ORDERS. to o o Read by O. S. Love joy, Attorney-at-Law, at the Supreme Lodge Convention, November 11th, 1914. The first words spoken after man was created and placed upon this earth were: "It is not good for man to be alone." If we are to believe the Bible, these words were spoken by the God who created man; and being his creator and the one all-wise intelligence, these words come down to us with a tremendous force. This, supplemented by human experience, teaches us that man cannot exist long alone. Place man or woman in solitary confinement and you shorten that life many years. Forced to remain away from our fellow being is one of the most severe punishments that can be inflicted, and second to this is, to force either sex from the society of the other. It is to satisfy thi...

FRATERNITY derful possibilities yet lie ahead of these societies in the way of reducing the operating expenses in all departments, and most especially in the acquisition of new members, for it is they who de- crease the death rate and at the same time swell the coffers of the society. If the membership could be awakened to the fact that the money paid deputies to secure new members must be added to the monthly dues, the assessments could soon be lowered by their own work among friends. It is indeed a most beautiful thought when we dwell upon the fact that all over the land men and women have banded themselves together for the pur- pose of protecting the widow and or- phans when the husband and father has contributed to their support his last farthing and passed into that silent and mystic beyond. This much is done by the old line insurance companies, but at a much reater cost. And if to furnish insurance at a cost within the reach of the poorer classes was all these societies do, it...

FRATERNITY HORRORS OF WAR HAVE A PARALLEL IN LIFE, I I But the truth is ever in evidence, that the protection of our dependents at home is even more important than our contributions to alleviate the misery and the sufferings abroad. To protect our home should be our first consideration. Our sympathy is more for those we leave behind than for the ones who have gone to their final accounting. The des- titute home, the helpless wife and the dependent children should appeal to us stronger than words can express. They should impress upon us our duty and the unwisdom of neglecting for a single day to join the U. B. A. The uncertainties of life are before us. Think of the danger which surrounds our loved ones if their future is not pro- vided for. By a certificate in the U. B. A. we can prevent so much pov- erty among our families. If the HORRORS OF WAR are un- speakable, OUR UNPROTECTED FAMILIES can be placed in the same category. In this country of peace and plenty, there is an opportuni...

FRATERNITY O .0 EDITORIALS Happy New Year to All! Write January first, Nineteen Fifteen. Did you Watch the U. B. A. Grow? Mexico is still raising trouble. Food supply is getting scarce. The U. B. A. is in a healthy condi- tion, and is here to stay. Watch us Grow. There are various definitions of the word, but a genius is a man who can save money. For the new year let your slogan be "Don't Lapse." First pay your insur- ance, then your other bills. It is said that "Love makes the world go round." We might add, it "makes the head go round"—at times. The year 1914 has been a very suc- cessful one for the U. B. A. Let us make 1915 a stunner. How pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in the United States, where there is no war. After deducting lapses during 1914 the U. B. A. has made a net gain of which we are proud. So many folks continually worry. Let's worry less and work more; it's work that counts. Politics and Fraternalism don't mix. Be a Fraternalist and leave your politics...

FRATERNITY W Wishing each and every member of this Association a bright and happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year, I am, fraternally and truly yours, J. A. CONNER. "OUR WEDDING," By One of Fort Worth's Oldest Writers. % Every one loves to hear about wed- dings,—so our friends and readers of "Fraternity" shall hear of "Our Wed- ding,"—so named, because it was the first wedding ceremony to be consum- mated in the Lecture Hall of the "Pro- gressive Spiritualists," Dec. 6th, 1914. As the "contracting parties" were well known and favorites with every one,— the groom being a Confederate Veteran and member of R. E. Lee Camp,—the bride, the widow of a Confederate Vet- eran, a former member of the Camp,— of course our Hall was crowded with friends and well wishers. I believe the "Society Editor" always gives a description of the decorations first,—then has the bridal party to enter. Our Hall was simply charming and beautiful in its gala dress of many lovely flowers, flags, miniature "Old...

8 FRATERNITY Some Reasons Why Every Business Man in Texas Should Belong to the "United Benevolent Association" It is a Texas Institution. It believes in Home Industry. It believes in keeping Texas money in Texas. It should be enouraged by the Business Man of Texas. The Business Man of Texas should help build the Order, by taking a Certificate in it. By carrying a Certificate in the UNITED BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION you patronize a Home Institution. Your money would, if spent at home, give employment to our own people, stimulate our own industries, and build up our own institutions. As an illustration, the UNITED BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION, a fraternal insurance order, chartered under the laws of Texas, adequate rates, a distinctly Texas Institution, its su- preme office located in Fort Worth. All of its Supreme Officers are residents of Texas. Every dollar expended in the maintenance of the Order is spent in Texas. Not a dollar paid by the members of the Order goes out of the state for any ...

FRATERNITY S O © c Taylor, Supreme President, and Brother George F. Roberts, Assistant Supreme Secretary. Under the efficient management of Hon. E. S. Royall, Supreme President, and W. W. Andrews as Supreme Secre- tary, assisted by our friend and Brother, Henry C. Schmidt, we feel that the Order will live long and prosper, which is its just deserts, having through its wise provisions admitted the Sisterhood, of Woman into the Brotherhood of Man, beneath the Fatherhood of God, and providing protection for the home when the provider and protector is no more. At the end of one week spent in this way, we left for our home in Lawton, Oklahoma, to find on our arrival our Companion suffering intense pain. A physician was called, who found that the malady of pneumonia had set up. Our every effort has been set forth by treat- ment, care and nursing to check the ravages of the disease. This writing leaves the sufferer resting fairly well. With best wishes to the readers of Fraternity, I am ve...

FRATERNITY O of this, take a certificate in the U. B. A., and enjoy the loving smiles of those de- pendent upon you. The U. B. A. has some good local sec- retaries, as good as there are in any Order, and we are depending upon you to make good our promise, which is to increase our membership during 1915. Will you help? Let us see, at the end of the year, what you have done; let it he said that you have contributed at least one member. Our request is modest. A united effort on the part of all will enable us to make 1915 one of the most prosperous years in the history of the Order. It is the aim of our Supreme President to double the membership within that time. Will you, as a mem- ber, give your support? The U. B. A. is known for its promptness in paying off its claims. No better protection can be found anywhere. Get a member, and get him NOW! NOW is the watchword, "NOW and WORK." Now is the time to get a new member; work to get that new member NOW!

Bower. "Home is not just four straight walls Or the roof which bends above us, Homeis where the sunlight falls Home is where there's one to love us." So sings one of our Michigan poets of the word which lexicographers have taken up much space in the dictionaries to define but whose true meaning is written in special characters upon every human heart. I am to talk upon the subject of whether home life is strengthened and benefited by membership in fraternal orders, but it seems to me that the form of my subject might be changed with advantage and instead of asking as a query, "do fraternal orders strengthen and benefit the home life of members" we may safely state as a fact that fra- ternal orders cannot help strength...

Does it help or hinder the home life of that family that these children are aware of their responsibility to the common center of their lives? Does it or not add to their self-respect to remember that they, too, are endeavoring to live up to their highest conception of their duty to their own kin? Does it help or hinder the home life when each mem- ber who belongs to a fraternal order brings in his or her quota to the con- versation at the home table? Does it help or hinder the home life when father goes to the lodge, instead of to the saloon?
