A secret fraternal order originating in medieval ritual, the Masons advocate charity and obedience. In The Town Eck Snopes was an active member among the Frenchman's Bend Masons, and Will Varner encouraged the Masons in Jefferson to find an appropriate job for Eck after his neck was broken. When Eck dies, the Masonic Lodge buries him, displaying their ritual "aprons" and "signs" at his funeral (117).
