by William R. Fischer



In the early lectures of the last century, now obsolete these questions were used as a test:

Q - Have you any keys to the secrets of a Mason?

A - Yes

Q - Where do you keep them?

A - In a bone box, that neither opens nor shuts but with Ivory Keys.

The bone box is the mouth, the Ivory Keys the teeth. The key to the secrets is the tongue.
