From here to there

Somewhere in these dark depths, the Knights of Pythias and perhaps the Shriners¹ have performed their order’s secret rites.

 

“Under the light of guttering candles and with a few direct shafts of flashlight illumination, Knights of the Pythias of the Boise lodge No. 60, Monday night will conduct degree work in the knight rank at Kuna cave … With the flickering lighting, fluttering bats and the queer rush of winds up the old cavern, the knights will ‘put on’ their work.”²

¹ The Shriners were invited to use the cave but I haven’t found confirmation they did

² Idaho Statesman, “Hold Ceremony in Kuna Cave” (July 22, 1923); also Idaho Statesman, “Knights of Pythias” (June 24, 1921)
