FROM THE EAST Brethren, Freemasons believe in men, a great possession it is, to believe in our fellows because we have said the same vows, seen the same work, taken the same degrees, sat in the same lodge, struck hands with the same grip. To have faith in one’s fellow Brother is an asset beyond money, and beyond price. To believe that most men have good within them, and is worthy of trust and confidence, is a wealth that cannot be destroyed by the cynic. Regular attendance at meetings is necessary to secure the valuable secrets of the Order, and for the individual Mason to determine for himself whether he is open for more knowledge and wisdom. And as for what is Masonic labor? To quote Ben Franklin, Masonic labor is purely a labor of love. He who seeks to draw Masonic wages in gold or silver will be disappointed. The wages of a Mason are earned and paid in their dealing with one another; sympathy begets sympathy, kindness begets kindness, helpfulness begets helpfulness, and these are the wages of a Mason. Fraternally, Paul H. Schutz, Sr. WM

Wherever you may chance to be Wherever you may roam, Far away in foreign lands; Or just at home sweet home; It always gives you pleasure, It makes your heart strings hum Just to hear the words of cheer, “I see you’ve traveled some.” When you get a brother’s greeting, And he takes you by the hand, It thrills you with a feeling that you cannot understand, You feel that bond of brotherhood that tie that’s sure to come When you hear him say in a friendly way “I see you’ve traveled some.” And if you are a stranger, In strange lands all alone If fate has left you stranded Dead broke and far from home, It thrills you– makes you numb, When he says with a grip of fellowship, “I see you’ve traveled some.” And when your final summons comes, To take a last long trip, Adorned with Lambskins Apron White and gems of fellowship The tiler at the Golden Gate, With square and rule and plumb Will size up your pin and say “Walk In”, “I see you’ve traveled some.” anon
