the several parts to memory before attempting to initiate in any

The Jewels are made of solid, hard metal, heavily gold plated.
They are to be worn around the neck or on the left breast as the
ensign of rank. Size, three and one-half inches in diameter. Each

jewels, not only to designate the rank of office, but as one of the essential
embellishmentstobe U3ed in connection with the installation of officers.
The laws of the land, as well as the laws of our Order, require

The emblem of members of the U. B. F. is the blazing triangle,
the points of which denote that he who bears this emblem or badge of
honor should be just in his dealings, merciful to all who appeal to
him for mercy, and true in all things. These are the three principles
or virtues of the Order that shine as a star, that is bounded by the
three straight lines representing Unity, Brotherly Love and Friend¬
ship. The surrounding halo admonishes us that United Brothers
should let their lights shine, and in accord with our motto we will
stand, but divided we are bound to fall.
