These are the foundations upon which, our order is founded; thoie are the magic wards that In the .-space of 50 years have marfe this the. Â·greatest American fraternal order. : "We believe the man that scatters '. flower* in the pathway of his f ellow- men and lets into the dark places of 1UÂ« the sunshine of human sympathy '.and human,.helpfulness .is following in the footsteps ot his Master.: : ; . "Wt believe a smile is better than a : frown, sunshine better tlian clouds, and ianghter Is the sweetest music in Â· all [he world. , We believe in goodfellowship and Â· that it is our duty .now and then to turn aside from the cares and anxie- .-ties of life and sip the lioaey from the flower of pleasure. My brothers, in the struggles, trials and triumphs of the future we must do our work, and act our parts, .and we will best perform our duties to our '} selves, families, neigh-bors, to. country, state and humanity, by keeping con- .Â·stantly in view the noble principles of our order. . Great movements in the world are not the result.of chance, and it does not merely happen that halt a million v of America's best citizenship have I identified themselves with the Order ..of Elks. They have done so because it stands for something which commands the respect and sympathy and admiration of; good and. true; men. "Because it stands for patriotism'and loyalty to our conntry and its institutions and as a constant lesson in that 1 patriotism and love of country,' it drspes the American flag upon the' altar of every lodge which opens a session under its authority. . Because it stands' for justice be- twe'en man and man; .justice tempered with gentleness and mercy, and, as an emblem of that justice, upon our country's flag we place an open Bible. ^_ Because it teaches th sweet virtue of brotherly love,' not. only, between members of our order, imt' toward all mankind. ' . And because above, and beyond all. It teaches as a fundamental basis of .its.creed, an .all-embracing charity, '-not merely the cold charity that, lim- . iU itself to the paltry gifts of alms, but that sweet charity which freely spends Itself in ilndly words, in generous thoughts, in gracious deeds and warm-hearted love. These are the things that have appealed to men and caused them to flock to our standard and to swell the jnifbty host that is marchiig forward under its broad-thing banners: '"'-'..
