Thanks to his high rank and the favor he enjoyed from King lJibota of Sparta, this returned traveler Ly curgus by name, had a free field for work Here Is what he accomplished Ho found Sparta groaning undi r misrule, Ignornnce and barbarism The nobles ground down the people Tho people hated tho nobles The government wns lax, the country poor Lycurgus' first step was to confiscate all property, divide It Into equal por tlons and distribute It fairly among the Spartans He next broko up the old tyrannical system of orb!trar rulershlp and ordained a senate of 3S men (elected for life), all of Hum over CO years old Instead of om king, ho chose two These were to rulo Jointly, more as high pri sts than as sovereigns, were to serve in tho Bcnato and were Invested with loss power than has tho president of tho United StateB Every citizen was a voter The senate was elected by tho people and Its commands could be sot aside by them. Senators were at once law- makers, under Men Equal; , and gecrct Government by dIroctlon of Ijy. the People. curgus. and Judges In civil and criminal trials In addition to these wero appointed a board (known as ophors), of magistrates whose duty It was to protect tho people's rights and to act as a restraining Influence on the kings. Lycurgus also divided the populace Into three classes Warriors, tradesfolk and helots (or slaves), assigning especial duties to each Now that ho had arranged for the people's temporal and political welfare by a system of socialism and popular government, Lycurgus turned his attention to a still greater need Sparta was a small, rather barren country, tsandwlched In among larger, rlchor lands. Lycurgus saw It was only a question of time before one of these stronger powers should seok to annex Sparta. Against this he guarded making his country so dangerous to any of her foes that none daro attack her. Sparta's only hope was In hor army. So ho made practically all the populace ono vast army It was a clear case of tho survival of tho flttost. From the ago of seven boya were placed In the care of the stato and were thenceforth subjected to an endless courso of discipline, pain nnd work. They were taught to go for days without food or sleep; to endure tortures, perils and hardships that would kill an ordinary man. They were trained by the severest system of athletics and Instructed In tho use of every weapon. Ab a result, every Spartan lad, by the time he reached manhood, was not only an Ideal soldier, but consld- ered It childish to give signs of pain or fatigue. He was a porfectly de- -' veloped human machine There was little or no home Hfo for him. His futuro was at the service of the state, not of himself.

Lycurgus changed all this To him worn-o- n ono much of their present high poalUon For he gave their sex its first impetus toward betterment by declaring women the equal of men. As mothers of future warriors ho demanded that they be treated with all reverence Girls were taught wrestling, boxing, running and other sports and acquired the more rugged lrtues of courage and patriotism A Spartan mother never wept at her son's doatta, Hut If he were a coward she went Into mourning. Having lifted his country from barbarism to high civilization and set it on tho road of progress, Lycurgus announced that he was going on a long Journey and made the Spartans tako a solemn oath to abide by all his laws and reforms until he should return.
