By: E. E. Flagg (Author)

The educating influence of stories both for good and evil is everywhere recognized. The vile anecdotes of the bar-room and saloon debauch the conscience worse than the liquor they drink does their bodies. It is notorious that it is neither the most eloquent or worthy politician, but he who can give the most sensational illustrations, that stands the best chance of election. The popular legends and fables of a nation indicate and largely determine the character of the people. Masonic writers have not been backward in the use of legends and narratives to bolster up that institution. Albert G. Mackey, the most influential and extensive Masonic writer of this country is the author of a book entitled THE MYSTIC TIE, or Facts and Opinions Illustrative of the Character and Tendency of Freemasonry. Of course the object of the work is to show by what Masonry has done for men, its practical value, and such chapter headings as u Freemasonry A mong Pirates, Masonic Courtesy in War and u The Soldier Mason, show the object of the author. Such stories have doubtless led many to join the order, that by its mystic power they might be safe among pirates and other outlaws, little thinking they were at the same time obligating themselves to shield these outlaws from deserved punishment.
