          How forcibly the truth of the words,  "We are gathering Home one by one,"  come to us as with tear-dimmed eyes we offer our last loving tribute to the memory of Brother Clarence Scudder.  Brother Scudder answered to the call of his Master, Monday, December 6, 1915, with absolute trust in his Savior, laid down the cares of this life and rested in the "Arms of Jesus."
          Whereas, the Everlasting FAther, the Prince of Peace, whose ways are past our understanding, has stilled the voice and so suddenly called to his long home our beloved brother, be it
          Resolved, that while Honor Temple No. 328, Pythian Sisters, bows in humble submission to the of will of  "Him who doeth all things well,"  we do not the less mourn for our brother.
          Resolved, that our sympathies are with the wife, daughters, son, mother, brothers and sisters, who remain, and may the hope of a glad reunion brighten the years of their life.
          Resolved, as a token of respect our charter be draped in mourning for thirty days.
          Resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be sent [to] the immediate family and be spread on the records of our Temple.
MAE  E.  HUNT,
