No member o f the old original Ku Kluv Klan, which did such
splendid work fo r white civilisation immediately after the Con-
federate War, was ever convicted o f violating any law. The old
Klan, like the present and permanent one, was devoted to the
loftiest ideals. Its methods were militant, necessarily,' but the
results were beneficent, altogether.
No member o f the present Ku Klux Klan has been convicted
o f violating the law, because Klansmen are under the most sacred
oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and to assist in the
enforcement o f all just laws.
There’s an incessant yawp, on the part o f alien enemies and
their sympathizers, concerning the use o f the .mask. They know,
as all do, that the mask o f the Klan is me&ly part o f the lodge-
room regalia, retained as a matter o f sentiment instead o f utility,
because o f its association with sacred memories.
Concerning-its operations and methods, which are altogether
good and wholesome, the Klan maintains strictest secrecy, of
course, as do all other secret societies. As to its pripciplesj pur­
poses and practices, however, it has nothing .to conceal. It is
proper to state the fact and ,to let it be known that the Klan Is do­
ing charitable work upon an enormous scale throughout the coun-
tty . M i it would he a grass breach o f Klan law to let the public
know the who-how-why-end-where o f this service. True charity
is the ideal, “N on silba Bed Anthar” — not fo r self, but for othets.
When anv jperson, high or low, states that the Klan is teach­
ing or doing anything wrong, or that it is shielding criminal mis­
conduct on the! part « f anyone, that person is a liar and a slan­
derer. The
is the noblest and the greatest o f all the patriotic
fraternities, strictly American in its membership and program.
Answering a Klansman, who wants to know the age o f mod­
em Freemasonry: We first hear o f it in France in 1725; in
1729 in Ireland; in 1731 in Holland and R u ssia;in 1733 in Boston
and other American settlements. On April 28, 1738. Pope Clem­
ent X II published a papal bull (document o r order) condemn­
ing the Masons and forbidding them to assemble in Rome under
pain o f death. They’ve been meeting quite regularly ever since.
They are, indeed, a power in Rome itself, while the Jesuits have
bfeen expelled from the ‘ Holy City” by mandate o f the people.
Pilate therefore went forth agaip and saietb unto them:

A great scientist declares, in a notable work, that absolute
control o f the physical body is the first requisite to mental har­
mony, which precedes and controls progress and true success.
To gain this control, he,says, one must utilize the power of
silence. Perfect silence, absolute repose, the banishment o f all
care, worry and fear, for a definite period every day or night,
is the exercise required by the universal law which governs the
mental and the spiritual world.
The Klan, the Royal Riders and theX adies o f the Invisible
Empire are Orders thoroughly American which o ffe r opportun­
ities and incentives fo r constructive and noble work. They appeal
to ambition, develop common sense, teach and promote persever­
ance, honesty, thoroughness, foresight, enthusiasm for progress
and co-operation. The members o f these Orders possess char­
acter. Their meetings and their daily lives are marked by cheer­
fulness, loyalty, courtesy, economy, sincerity and harmony. No
wonder that, by the constant exercise o f the positive qualities,
they prosper together, better and better, in every way, every
dpy. Get into one o f these Orders, and enjoy life. Admission
means the immediate winning o f hosts o f loyal friends.
