M. Rapsiieu, Esq., of Le

Pythian Hall Dedications
and other occasions in var
ious parts of the State.
CONCi UDED FUOU LAtf WEEK. 3
The Knights of Pythias have u spe
cial work of the noblest cnarity and be
nevolence to perform. They assume
the duly to aid and succor the Widows
and Orphans of tlHr departed brelhern.
nntl to assist and uneourag- tll thtlr
members In times of danger aud tljslress;
to smooth 'and beautify the rugged and
deviating paths of Hie; to make life
sweet to live, mid to be, in the hour of
death, fearless and lently to die. And
remember that all virtues and moral
qualities, to be Interesting or beautiful,
must grow Iroiu within. The poorest
virtue that a man develops genuinely
within himself, like a Mower In n cot
tage window, is better than that which
is Imparted and artificial. For each ouu
must, alter all, live his own lire and
work nut his own d sliny. Each has
his own ?bletu, and In Its d tailed
solution no one can directly aid. No
example is over preel o'y applicable,
and nothing but the spirit of another's
good deed can help yours. The daisy,
in developing as a daisy, can derive no
direct counsel Iroic a rose. The humb
lest blossom must uutuM by Its own
laws, arid all that it lias In common with
the rose is the general Uv of growth.
Nrglect these luward )owers, cease to
be yourself, cultivate eeconUaiy virtues,
and when yuu most need strength you
will tind only a habit of dependence In
lis place. We have too much of what
may he termed sentimental goodness.
Oursentiiueii tally good peopinare harm
less enough, but lliey ure almost wholly
lacking In the true virtue. There Is u
good Saxon word which represents a
good Saxon qualiiy, which ought to bo
imported Into the moral world. That
word is pluck. Public opinion iscowaid
ly; it lacks pluck. In the stress nf an
emergency, lu the lace of danger, it
does nut dare to say its soul Is Its own'.
It will again and again, wh a it is
tempted, bell out to Summon, to power
and prestige, and opposition. And
private opinion is often mute timorous
even tlmu public opinion. It is npt
Usmi the leust threat to burreiuli'r to
popuhnity thut wh'cli is must precious
and worth preserving, and which Itought
to defend ut all hazards. This absence
of the chivalrous and heroic spirit, from
our public und private opinion, is tlio
terilule curse of American civilization
Tliu.true P.ithluu mission is to bring
about, more robust vhtues; we want
Ju-tico to light down injustice, stern
integrity to put lis loot on meanness
nnu. hypocrisy, mid lion-Iicartediiess to
meet till the host-of evil und wring ami
dilvc them to utter rout. Sentimental
goodne-B will nut do it; it will never
make Hue kidghts. It lias a very ami
able disposition towards the right. It
bay a with u,su,wt smile, "How right
Is right, how good is good, how true Is
truth." "Ah; yes, thebu ought to lie
eucuuiaged," Hut It will not take its
stand by these and defend them when
they are attacked by prejudice and big
otiy, by unlalrness and injustice. It
will not sutler lor them, ad sacrifice
lor theui, aud work for them, and spend
money lor llieiu. It Is the lirat tu ne0
when they need its help. It would
sell out, as Juttas sold Ins master, to
those who bid highest lor them. The
true kulghtliood we hope for will have
loice In it as well us sweetness; It will
be plucky as well as amiable. It will
know the tight and, knowing, will dare
maintain it. It will take Its standi on
principle aud never denart from it: aud
should any power or lutluenueupproucli
to tempt it to do bo, It will say to it with
firm-set will, "Get thee behind' me,
batan." u will never teek to conciliate
anybody by refraining to nay or do that
which ought to be bald and done; and
it will never be gulity of a compromise
which has to be i Heeled at tiro least ex
pense or truth aud light. It is Ignoble
and paltry to us to think of the price
we ate going to be paid, tor luli.gtrue
and virtuous, aud to say lu effect that
we will not venture (Ui the thorny and
dangerous road of duty, unless we can
have a Havener's Insurance, that we
bliall bo Indemnified for every luishap.
This Is Ui reduce murality to a mere
mercantile standard, und to make of
the high (rain-actions between Consci
ence and the .Moral Law a mere bargain
and consideration of what to give and
take. We have no right, ns true
Knights, when duty presents Itself to
us und commapds uurubedtuuee, to ask.
Is it eare to obey shall we be likely to
succeed If wo do this shall we please
man by this course,, and be sure to get
our reward somehow sometime ? The
only question we have any business to
entertain Is, what Is right what Is tru
ly good wl-at does duty require of us
under the circumstances? And when
we have settled these questions, tiieti It
Is our only and Immediate, aud most
noble concern to go I or want In the path
of right, to do our duty raithfully, to be
loj a unto the Inspiring Voice that cads
oil us, from withliil It would be well
for society aud humanity II these prin
ciples an,i the spirit of our Order, were
accepted and adhered to by ull meu;
human nature would .become brtter,
mote free, more exalted, more wise, and
mure happy. To strive for tills, Is to ba
truly a Knight of Pythias, and we may
bo sure that nowhere until theie great
truths shino upon n so clpsrly ai whpn
we are walking In the way of duly nud
persevering to do good.
We want mrre determination, pur
pmp and pluck, to bring about that
wished for Jlllennlnin when "tlib true,
the good and the beautiful" shall sub
limely reln. History U over replete
with Instructive lessons and as an In
teresting effort by a Ion" course of toll
some discipline, af perseverance and
of pluck, I call your attention lor a mo
ment o the hljlory of the Crusades:
Jerusalem and other localities In Pal
estine were regarded sa-jred ami hal
lowed, and In iheearly ages pilgrimages
thllher were common', out towards the
close of the tenth century they had In
creased to overwhelming proportions,
In consequence of the terror, then enter
tained of the approaching end of the
world. The Idea arose it seems, ftom
an iuteipretation given ti the 12tli
Chapter of Apocalypse. It was then
set f orth, that alter t he lapse of a thou
sand years,' Satan would be let loose to
deceive the nations, nnd to gather them
together to battle against the holy city.
Rut the year 1000, that dreaded epoch,
passed by; yet the current of pilgrimage
Mill continued to How towards the East.
In theseveth rentury Turks obtained
possession of Palestine, and tills wild
nice of S.iracen conquerors, subjected
the pilgrims of Jerusalem to every
soecies of extortion and. outraee; and
tlio returning pilgrims spread through
all the countries of Europe indignation
and horror, by the pathetic titles which
they related, of the injuries nnd insults
which they had suffered from the infi
dels, as they called them, lmong
others, Peter the Hermit, who was
afterwards engaged in the first regular
crusade, returning from a pilgrimage
to Palestine complained In loud terms
of these grievances and began to preach
In glowing language the duty of the
Christian world tu unite in expelling
the Infidels from the patrimony of the
Savior. The project was seconded by,
and zealously engaged in, by the peo
ple, Bishops, Kings and Pope and a
large baud of all ages and professions
was soon in motion towards Palestine.
This force was utisucct sdiil; but when
we n tlect that the loss of the crusaders I n
tills first adventure is estimated at 300,
000 men, we Justly conclude that Its
failure vas not lor the want of valor.
After this loss the crusaders again uni
ted their forces in Asia Minor mid the.
number of their fighting men, without
Including those who did not curry anus,
was 000,000, and of these alone the
number of Knights was 200,000. The
expedition pressed on, encountering
".numerable battles, trials and difficul
ties without murmuring, until Jerusa
lem was wrested from the hands of the
infidels; the great object ot the expedi
tion was accomplished, and the Insti
tutions of Europe were Introduced Into
Palestine lu all their vigor.
The period between tlio first and sec
ond crusade is a remarkably interesting
opoch in the history of Knighthood,
became of tlio rise, at Jerusalem, of
two or the ruii-t distinguished Orders of
Knt.'hu-the Ho-pltallers aud the Red
Cioss Knights or Templais. Tlio valor
in Dom Uitters uecamtt noted; it is said
that the Hospitallers ever burned a
Unlit during the night, that they might
always be prepared against the enemy;
and that any Templar, on bearing the
cry "to arms" would have been assum
ed to ask the- number of the enemyl
Tlie only question was, "where ato
they?" Other ciu-ades followed the
first great movement, and all were ex
cited by some Impending calamity to
Pale-llnb, Forty-eight years'alter the
conquest of Jerusalem, tlie loss of the
principal Christian fortresses In Pales
