J, Iifctlie. luorniug of tliaiwofld', when

-tt liannoiiiHM, mid tlm grntlfl wmlla
zi'phretl in the amliroMal dales of the
Paradise of ,Owl, M where ved onef
wives und laughing habes lived in the
Ii6mes of their fathers, there was little,
if any, need for fraternities like the
one whose anniversary we to day cele
brate. In that age, when men slept
with their fathers, as it were, the fra
ternal offices could be performed hy
relatives ,and associate friends. But
as men legan to increase, and jt .be
came uece-viary to plant colonies in
distant pans of th earth, away from
iIih reach of paternal protection and a
motliera love, the call fcr some'fraterh
al ha ud to.re.ieva .waiitj and pour the
oil of j-ace on the troub ed waters of
life became: mors and more a uecesity.
Out of these necessities Fpratii; the Or

and oceans mud cui)K.d waves, gather

and diamonds of truth, until it now
nails like a bright angel of mercy with
healing on its uingn; extjactitig the
thorns from the quivering flehli of iuf

in the hearts of men to bloom, and daz
zle in the sunlit happiness like pearly
dimple in the ro.sey clieeku of beauty.
Fioui time immemorial tome institution
with' the-.e Mibliine uiuis in view lias
hud an exiatance among the nations of
the world. We now invite you to ac
company us w liile we travel along the
grt-at highway of nation, and explore
the. dai k bVlds of the jmst and gather
the gem fi out which have been
wrought the golden linka of our frater
nity. Such u walk will give. us pure
heai is and free minds to contemplate
tin ever living tiuths which ramify the
emotional nature of man and permeate
fcocietv; liullison which hang the tri
ple links of ftieudithip, love and truth.
Forty centuries before the Christian
era ii'ntit had her ear lest form of
ilusomy, though bearing but little, if
any, rese.iiblunce to the noble order of
that name to-duy. By the earliest form
wn ute to be understood as meaning
the earlier known. There may have
lieen Hiid duubllex were many societies
existing in that wonder land long pre
vious to our dates of recorded time.
Marvellous as the institutions of Egypt
are. llicv are not moie t.a than the ex
istence of the nation ifcwlf. From the
history of other nations we learn of
their gradual development from a state
of barbarism to a Mate of civilization.
But Ejiypt keems to come from the
womb of primordal time, armed cap a
pie with all the parapharnaliaof nation
al strength, with arts and instructions
n) perfect four thousand years before
ourera as to challenge the wonder and
admiration of the world. She seems
to have been born a full grown nation
su-pping on the arena of national life
in the mature age of national manhood.
But with her national life or institu
tions we only stop to gather the scat
tered links iu the great chain of causes
which connect us with those remote
ages. The wecret order that existed in
Efjypti was ToniiKMed of artisans and
mechanic organize! into a system of
fellow craft for mutual protection. The
bondage of the children of Israel, and
the intercourse between the Greeks and
Egyptians caused many of these fellow
craft expressions to be incorporated in
the Hebrew and Greek scriptures, and
finally pass fordivineinspiration. "Send
hither a cunning artificer, one skilled
in all the work," is one of a long list of
recognized by the antiquarians as sym
bolic expressions, intelligent, only, to
the fellow craft using them for lb
purposeof protecting themselves against
itnpostera and for routn&l recognition.
Vhen PSametichus (650 B. C.) opened
the gates of Egypt to the Greeks end
Europeans and the blade of Grecian
'philosophy flashed aloug the Nile,
many of these Egyptian artisans joined
the victorious legions and carrie.t their
fellow craft with them. .A little later
(525 B. C.) Cambyses king of the
Medes and Persians led his conquering
host over Egypt. Alexandra, (332 B.
C.) Cesar and the Ptolmies and the
Arabs further scattered the perron of
Egyptian fellow craft. Thefi-llow'craK
expressions of the artisans impressed
into service in these armies "became"
lacatterfed nmong tho Greeks,' Bomtinu,
Persians and Medes. Borne now be
gan to decay uuder the septic influence
of foreign, races. In (360 A- D.)
Brennus and the Gauls captured the
city. Alaric the dashing leader ot the
Goths (410 A. D.) and Geneseric, (445
A. D.) each led their Goth and Vandal
host in triumph 'over Rome. After
the dark night of carnage and blcod
that swallowed Egypt, Greece and
Rome! ike a malstroem, there dawned a
brighter day for Europe. The bold
Gauls, the dashine Buns, the inirntu
ous Pranks, and swarming Vandals
could overrun Borne; but they in turn
were subdued, not however by the
sword, but by the moral force of Gre
cian and. Roman literature, the genius
of their artisans and the ameliorating
influence of their poetry and song.
These nations becoming infatuated
with Rome's majestic institutions and
Grecian sculptur desired to imitate
them. Engineers, artisans, sculptors,
and-paintTj found the interior of Eu
rope a new field of labor. But it was
necaary to leave honip, this necessity
gave rise to the various orders of the
sixth and seventh centuries. As early
as the fourth and fifth centuries they
were known as ''Odds" or "Odes"; an
appellation well suited to their calling;
for what could be more odd to the un
cultured barbarian than magic skill
used in the construction of the majes
tic cathedrals and the sculpturs of Gre
cian artists. Tho sixth and seventh
centuries becatuo notorious ns the age
of cathedrals. The incorporations of
portions of Grecian, Doric, Ionic and
Roman architecture and conventional
Egyptian sculpture, enlivened by Vene
tian art is not more plainly visiblo
than tho talismanic and symbolic ex
pressions and mystic hieroglyphs which
mark this era. Tho imposition prac
ticed by imposters, calling themselves
artisans, and some meansof recognition
and mutual aid, made a system of fel
low craft an absolute necessity. But
the only resemblance betveen the
"Odes" of that time and oir order of
to-day is that ft was founded for mutu
al protection, laid on the principle of
eternal justice and anchored to the
rock of truth. Nor is it, at all, claimed
that, either or any of these fraterni
ties were the origin of the Order of Odd
Fellowship of the present. The time
had not yet come, for riper ideas to
bud ncd blossom and bear their richer
fruits ir. the hearts of men. But what
ever may have been the design or
character of .these early Orders all Eu
roie owes her present degree of civili
zation to the spirit of creative t,eniu,
arts of peace, poetry and song, infused
into her life from Egypt, Greece-and
Rome, of which fellow craft builders
were the great carriers. Our subject,
in this connection, would be incomplete
were we to omit to notice the society
of "Essenees" that flourished in the
2nd century before Christ and contin
ued their existence down to, and after,
the Christian era. This society had
for its object the perfection of the high
er elements of moral manhood. It is
asserted by some writers that Christ
was a member of this society. His
character work and life, are in full har
mony with this association. It was a
society of purely moral ideas; culti
vating the mind to the perception of
the sacred duties of a riper manhood,
and a higher degree of morality. These
Essenees found them, as we find it to
day, that ideas are of slow crowth.
The conception and birth of every new
idea has met the frowns of an unrea
soning public. Every new presentment
of truth has met with persecution and
been followed with the vindictivo and
dogged tenacity of a sleuth hound.
Dogmatic belief and traditional super
stition has ever been the prison house
of genius. The sword of reason severed
the prison bars of tradition and gave
ns a free Christianity and the civiliza
tion we now enjoy. The dark ages
which enveloped oil Europe in a pall
of nigh buried the hearts of men
inaeea of blood, aud-onered human
fleah, as food in th jjarkpt places; tore
fair daughters from a mothers embrace
and strangled dimply cheeked babes;
disappeared before the star of chiv
alry; a star kindled by the friction of
contending emotions, and made bril
liant by fraternal love. The germs of
chivalry are found scattered all along,
from the palmy days of the Roman
empire; but it never astumed a specific
form until about the tenth century.
Guizot says that chivalry "was the
progressive development of anciont
facts, the spontaneous consequences of
Germanicmanner8 and feudal relations."
It was purely a creature of the times,
and could not have existed in a differ
ent stato of society. The impelling
foice moving these sons of chivalry to
action was a desire to remedy the evils
of this brutal age. A desire to protect
the helpless and a feeling of regard for
woman gave that devotion to the sex
which characterized all the acts of
tchivalry. Theseknihtsvowed toprotect
the weak, including widows, orphans,
and niPtdens. Their aspirations were of
the noblest chancter; and it is remar
kable that such sentiments should pre
vail in one of the darkest periods of
the world's history. But Ijt i- not
claimed that chivalry lived up to all
its professions. Tho ordeals of its time
rendered perfection an impossibility
Its greatest error is found in its alii
ance with the church; becoming a mon
grelizecl, religious, benevolent and po
litical organization. Odd Fellows
have profited by the experiences of
chivalry and avoided the conflict
incident to the advocacy of religious
dogmas and political faith. Recogniz
ing the fact that acts rather than a
certain belief makes the man we
uever allow the discussion of religious,
po'itical or sectarian subjects in our
lodgo room. Chivalry as nn institution
ceased with the beginning of the 15th
century. The time at our disposal for
bids a further reference to the societies
of this period. Suffice it to say they
weio born of the emergencies and did
the work of 'their creation. The 16th,
I7th and 18th centuries wero marked
by several important discoveries affect
ing the traditional opinions and well
fare of mankind. The persecutions
heaped upon Newton on account of his
diheoveric, and Luther, Milanihthoa
and Calvin, for blowing the bugles of
religious freedom, created the great
reformation which was destined to en
sure larger lil erties of conscleene and a
better knowledge of men, leading tbem
to the perception and acception of new
truths calculated to enure to the well
fare of the human family. These wore
tho rippling fountains of love that were
beginning to gush in tho hearts of men
destined to become the majestic stream
that now flows with healing on its pla
cid bosom. The application of steam
by Watson in the latter part of the
18th century, tho invention of the
spinning jenny by Jennings and tho
loom by Awkright, led to a new order
of industries in England. Factories
sprang up in every quarter, in which
children of tender nge wero employed;
because they could perform certain
parts of tho work nearly as well aa
adult persons, and at much less expense
to the manufacturer. Employers and
even parents seemed to forget that the
nerves of iron and steel that norer
tired was wasting thu lives of these
children. Sir Robert Peel saw in the
emacia'ed forms and wan features of
those children an appeal for relief from
the over burden of labor imposed upon
them. He went before the English
Parliament, demanded and obtained a
series of factory acts regulating the
number of hours children could bo dai
ly employed. Our brothers and sisters
know that tho "laugh of a child will
make the holiest day more sacred still.
