taught you to yield a tribute of
gratefulness, and respect to the mem
ory of departed brother: ? Ha* it
not taught you to remain silent, and
to keep our secrets well ruarded, "nd
tiled, and to impart the principle* of
justice, and humanity, to your breth
ren, to be cautious, in your words, and
„ „peech. where it concerns a brother's
name, and not to pry too curiously in
to the secrets of another ? Haven t you
been taught to pay the tribute of jus
tice to ri t your brethren, and to let
thev oicc of the peacemaker pervade
all your meeting*. And dissensions?
Does it not teach you that whatever
is to be done for the cause of right
to do it, without fear or favor, and
with all your determination, remem
bering that we are under the watch
ful, and "All-seeing Eye?" Are we
-not taught to restrain our zeal, even
in a good cause, lest we become too
zealous, and cast discretion to the
winds, and work discredit upon the
Master who presides above? Do we
not know by its teachings that jus
tice will sooner or later overtake the
assassin of some good brother's char
acter. and brii.g him to repentance,
and the guilty punished, God himself
vindicating H.s own laws. That as
punishment awaits the one who is
guilty of violating God's as well as
the Masonic law, that honor and re
ward will assuredly come to those
who are sincere and faithful in their
promises? That labor is honorable,
and that the one devoting, his talents
to thia cause is always rewarded, in
his honest efforts? As a matter of
record does not danger end defeat act
as mediums in stimulating us to
greater deeds, and higher accomplish
ments and at the >«me time prepare
us to meet-future difficulties with pa
tience and fortitude? Are we not
taught that death cannot separate?
That our soul passes to Him who
gave it, and at the final day we will
have to give an account for the deeds
done here on this earth, whether
good or bad? And are we not taujrht
in the hour of danger or peril to ask
God's help in all, and are we not as
sured of his protection, when we ap
peal earnestly, and sincerely? Are
we not taught to remember those in
* misfortune, and the desolations that
have come over us during these peril
oar times, and of those bound to us
by bonds of love and sympathy, that
time can never efface from memory?
To be chivalrous and generous and
true? What greater lessons in life
can be taught than those of faith,
hope and charity? Is it not our duty
that will be in keeping with God's
laws, so that when the lime comes
we may be prepared to cross the di
viding line, with the hope of reach
tog the Celestial lodge above and find
peace and happiness in the presence
of the Grand Master of the Universe?

of men who ta ether ware would have

of time, have demonstrated the im
menM »tride> ma.la not ci.ljr in «ir
g*ry but in the methwla of removing
the wounde'l from the battle flelda and
tai -porting them to hoopitaln. So
effective ia the eo-operation between
•urgeona and phyaiciana at the front
and thooe at the hoepitala in the
rear that an hnmenaely larger propor
tion of the wounded recover than waa
the caae at the beginning of the war.
Men whoee arma ur lege have been
fractured by ahella now are reetored
to their regimenta in a minimum of
time. Thia ia doe moatly to the fact
that they receive prompt antlaeptie
treatment and aurgical attention
which prevent* blood-poiaoning and
the itiffening of articulation. Thair
recovery ia rapid in the hoepitala be
hind the linea where they can be
treated under comfortable conditiona
far from the nerve-wracking sound
of the guna.
Soldiers have been inspired with
confidence in the »rmjr surgeon* in
the great battles around Verdun and
in the treat German offensive which
ber*n in March.
Promptness in the treatment of
wounded men has been obtained by
segregating ihem in classes according
to the nature of their wounds. This
was not generally done at the begin
ning of the war. The plan then in
vogue waa to erect large hoapitai* aa
near the fighting linea as possible,
say ten or twelve miles from the front
and to send all cases there for treat
ment. When big battles occurreJ
these hospitols were over crowded and
owing to the delay in operating there
were many cases of gangrene, tetanus
and other infections that resulted
The enemy did not hesitate to bom
bard the hospitals either with the ar
tillery or from airplanes. Sometimes
a train-load of wounded men would
arrive only to And all the beds oc
cupied and that they must move on to
Most of this difficulty now has been
overcome. When wounded men reach
the first dressing station or field am
bulance they are divided into categor
ies. Those slightly wounded are ra
pidly dressed and sent to convalescent
hospitals. Those crippled are sent to
cripple depots. Men who have gassed
go to special hospitals nearby to re
main until they recover or die.
Those suffering from severe but not
dangerous wounds roccive prompt
treatment in the advanced nmbulanccs
where operations are performed and
wounds disinfected before the men
are sent to permanent hospitals.
By these divisions of the woanded
into classes, it is asserted, that great
s/apidity of surgical intervention is
achieved as each specialist deals on
ly with cases needing his kind of skill.
Then the patient is removed to the
hospital at a distance of not more
than a journey of ten or twelve hours
where he receives attention from an
other specialist working in close co
operation with his colleague in the
