      A special communication of Pulaski Lodge, No. 415, of F. and A.M., held at Masonic hall on Saturday, Jan'y 25th, 1890, the following minutes and reflations were adopted:

      A summons to the house of mourning has again called us together, and as we are about to attend the funeral obsequies of brother Gilbert L. Cross, it is fitting that some expression of our sorrow at his untimely death should be entered in the minutes of our Lodge,

      Brother Cross died at his residence in Pulaski, on Thursday evening, Jan'y 23d, after a brief and painful illness.

      For several years after he became a member of our fraternity, he was soon interested in the welfare of our order, and was faithful in the discharge of his Masonic duties.

      We recall with pleasure his pleasant disposition, his unfailing kindness and his willingness always to assist in worthy and charitable objects. Generosity, kindness, sympathy and courtesy were prominent traits of his character.

      As we remember that "to err is human, to forgive is divine," let the brethren who survive, cover his frailties with the mantle of true Masonic charity, and strive to emulate his virtues and the attractive and worthy qualities of his character.

      Resolved, That we extend to the widow and relatives of our deceased brother, the assurance of our heartfelt sympathy from condolence in their great and sudden bereavement, and that this tribute be spread on the minutes of this Lodge.

      Resolved, That the jewels and emblems of our lodge-room are draped in mourning in memory of our deceased brother, and that copies of this minute be given to his widow, and to the PULASKI DEMOCRAT for publication.
