Masonry and Women.
The local of the Norfolk Journal is responsi
ble for the following story. Whether he gets it
from the written history or the traditions of
Masonry, or from his own fancy, we leave the
reader to judge.
Why Womkn Cannot K.ntkr Masonic
Loimiks. When King S., Ionian wasttill a young
man he had married his seventh wile. She was
a beautiful young Ammonite, with locks ns
black as n raven's wing and eyes as bright ns
eagle's. It was believed that she was the favor
ite tuir one among all the sultanas of the great
Kjng; for his affections were not divided then
aa they afterwards !ccame. She knew her
iower, and used it unsparingly. In addition to
her other qualities, she was aa iuuuUiiive u
ever wasa woman on this earth.
One evening King Solomon attended lodge on
some grand occasion, and stayed out somewhat,
late. When he returned home, he found th
fair Ammonites in the dumps, nnd pouting just
like the lair w ives of Masons do sometimes now,
when their lords stay out too late at the Lodge.
She upbraided him with neglecting her, insinu
ated Hint h- hadn't been to the lodge as he pre
tended, and insisted that in future he should
give prool that be went thereby having herself
initiated, su thai aha might go there and. watch
"Daughter ol Amnion," replied the King,
"thou lin-t behaved thyself as one of the foolish
women, in presuming to question thy lord ajhd
master. Thou art not so angry with me as thou
pretendest to be; ior the true reason of this
behavior is thy insatiable curiosity, in which
thou excelh st Eve herself. Kttow then that I
here ordain that neither thou, nor any of thy
inquisitive sex after thee, ever enter the portals
ot a Masonic Lodge; but I shall enjoin the Ty
ler to pierce through with his drawn sword any
woman that shall attempt to enter a lodge ; aye.
1 ven thee, Qneen of Israel though thou be!"
And that ordinance of this wisest ot mouarchs
hascontiuued in lorce till this day.
We hope, that we have satisfied tire curiosity
of our fair readers as fully as did King Solomon
that of ht$ Queen.
