Mister Ron's Basement #1629
This week we are digging up some so-far-unread George Ade stories that are Worth Reading.
Today's is quite funny!
While the Fraternal Lodge is not as big a deal as it was back in 1900 when this story was written, there are still many people who join secret orders and clubs today. This is a story of a truly fanatical Club Joiner -- 'The Fable of the Lodge Fiend, and the Delilah Trick Played by His Wife.'
Time: approx seven minutes
