Fearsome Oaths and Exhibitions of Magic Described as Chief Features in
Ceremony of InductionMember Who Resigned Tells of Attempts to Make Her Pay Penalty for
Withdrawing From the Order
In the general sad indifference to the most recent computation of vril the coming force, and to the latest astronomical and astrological data from Mount Ecclesia there are persons in New York who are not aware that many branches of the Rosicrucian Society exist in America.
