The spirit of modernity now pervades even our Ancient Mysteries, so that they must bear the stamp of recent investigation. Too little has been written about the splendid Order of the Eastern Star. It is almost impossible to find any printed article bearing on its history, which may be used in making an address on the subject. In this little book will be found a concise account of the development of the Order through the ages, from the early Mysteries to the present time. An explanation of the purposes of the Order is also included, elucidating the high aims and principles which are responsible for its unprecedented success. The chapter on Parliamentary Rules of Procedure is also an innovation. It is very difficult to glean the needed facts from the mass of material presented in separate books on Parliamentary Law. In this book is given the information necessary to conduct the business of a Chapter of the Order, and it should prove a welcome addition to the Ritual. The Ritual itself must remain the same in content: the ceremonies permitting change bear certain improvements in keeping with the trend of the times. It is believed that a work as noble as that of the Order of the Eastern Star cannot he hindered by the publication of its ceremonies and methods, but that it will rather be furthered by publicity, which is the keynote of this age of Radio and Roentgen Rays. Therefore in a spirit of reverent appreciation is offered this new and modern Manual of an Order rich in tradition.
