Resolutions of Respect of Rev. Pulaski Moore

When our Divine Master has seen fit to remove from our Lodge here below our old and much esteemed brother Pulaski Moore to that celestial Lodge above therefore.

Be it resolved by the Bernice Lodge No. 239 F. & A. M. that we bow with humility to the mandates of our heavenly father. We realise that the working tools of life have forever fallen from brother Moore’s marvelous grasp, yet we feel sure that he has left us an example worthy of imitation. We know he loved masonery and lived it. We will “cherish his memory here,” and we commend his aged companion and children whom he has left to the God of mercy who “tempers the wind to the shorn lamb,” and “who doeth all things well” in this their and bereavement for comfort and consolation.

Be it further ordained that the Lodge be drafted in mourning and the brethren wear the usual badge for 30 days, and that these resolutions be spread upon our minutes, a copy be given his companion, and copies be furnished the parish papers with a request for publication.

Bernice La., Dec. 27, 1905.

Dr. C. T. Hines Dead

It is with sincere regret that we note the death of Dr. C. T. Hines, which occurred Friday night, January 5th, at his home in West Monroe.

Love – Cooper

Married Wednesday Dec 27, 1905. At the brides home, in Marion La., Mr. Starling Love to Miss Lena Cooper.

The church was profusely decorated for the occasion with evergreens, pot flowers and maiden hair ferns, while directly over the alter where the vows were to be taken, a large heart was hung made of cedar, festooned with white satin ribbons but owing to the inclemency of the weather, the marriage was solemnized at the home of the bride. There was quite a crowd to witness teh happy event.

The bride was beautifully gowned in white silk, with lace trimmings; The long tulle veil which fell in graceful folds to the hem of her skirt and the pretty wreath of orange blossoms which bedecked her head made her a fair picture to look upon.

After the ceremony we repaired to the dining room where an elegant supper was served.

The table groaned beneath its burden of everything good that the season afforded and great credit is due Mrs. Cooper, for the taste she displayed in the arrangement of the table.

The bride who is noted no less for her beauty and accomplishments than her beauty and accomplishments than her sweet disposition and beautiful traits of character, is one of Marion’s brightest stars and counts her friends by the score.

We congratulate Mr. Love on his wise choice.

The groom is an intelligent young man noted for his morality and honesty and has a host of warm friends.

The bride and groom were recipients of several presents.

May they have a long and prosperous life and cause this old world to be better for their having lived is it, is the ardent wish of a–
