      AN APPRECIATION.
      "By the death of Richard Aspland the Star in the East Lodge, No. 10, Loyal Order of Ancient Shepherds, have lost an old and valued member. A true Shepherd, too, because he saw to it that his two sons, as soon as they were old enough, were made members of the Lodge. Unfortunately, his youngest son was. killed in the Great War. His only surviving son still a member of the Lodge.
      "The late Brother Aspland joined the Star in the East in August, 1878, and he has been. a member of the Lodge for just over 60 years. The writer has no record of his activities in the Lodge previous to (date obscured) but since that date the late Brother was elected a trustee of the Lodge. The work in connection with that office he carried out most conscientiously, and at all times he was willing to do anything for the good and welfare of the Lodge."
