It is our desire to make our meetings worth your while and any suggestions you have to offer as to programs will be appreciated and con-' sidered. See the line up below of what you may expect next month. The order of things is changing and it seems that something new comps up at nearly every meeting to claim our interest. Bro. J. T.

Castlebury June 19. 1854 February 21. 1929 January 8, 1876 February 20. 1929 Appointed Grand Treasurer of the Grand Lod]?e of N. C.

From the Master It is my earnest desire and request that our brethren attend not only our own meetings hut that they attend, whenever possible, the meetings of our sister Lodges as well. This tends to promote good fel lowship and a reciprocative interest in our own Lodge from the members of our sister Lodges. We are now pulling together as Raleigh Masons, and this can be done and at the same time maintain the individuality of the three Lodges. A. B. Wester, Master.

Now that this paper is a reality, it is very important that every member of our Lodge be on the lookout and report any thing that is of interest. Bro. J. L. Pea cock has accepted the Correspondent’s position for Raleigh Lodge, for which we should be grateful. All items for The Tres- TLEBOARi) should be in his hands by the 8th of each month in order to appear in that month’s issue. Be sure and keep in touch with him because he, nor anyone else, can fill this job without hearty support from every member. Our klasojiic year is rapidly drawing to a close. Have you been to your Lodge this year? We have had some wonderful meetings and you have missed something by not attending. We are going to have something that will interest you next meeting, so be sure to come. Wm. T. Harding, Jr., Master.
