Mueller the minister at The Hague who was acting as the chan cellors private secretary The latter in his turn sent It to the foreign office where in the absence of Herr on Schoen it was read by

to spare In the electoral col lege and a considerable majority of the popular vote Speaking of his delay In reaching Chicago Saturday night Mr Bryan said The trip arranged for the day was a long one with a large number of stops The meetings were unexpectedly large and in some places the speaking stands were fixed some distance from the stations We had to ride slowly through the crowded streets to reach the stands Then there were three changes from one road to anotuer Finally our engine broke down and the substitute engine had to be turn d around at the next station and that caused a delay I

I Says More Labor Legislation Is Needed Mentions Many v r Measures V 1 it- 7Buffalocaused this statement to be IssuiidXA here as coming from him It was brought to Mr Tafts at tenticn that a number of labor lead ers who have no sympathy with Mr Gompers in his attempt to commit ithe entire vote of labor to the Demo j cratic party were nevertheless In great concern lest the defeat of MrIBryan and Mr Gompers which now seems certain to them would lead tov reprisals cn the part of the new ad ministration under Mr Taft and to a refusal on his part to continue the good work for labor which had beenidone by Mr Roosevelt and at his in stance by a Republican congress In the statement Mr Taft said I have been honored by Mr Roose velt in the last four years by being called on to assist as an adviser In respect to all the executive and legis lative measures projected in his ad ministration in the interest of labor and I have had a very deep sympathy with all that has been done Thereiare other measures In the interest ot labor that ought to be adopted The 16hour bill ought probably to bs amended The compensation for gOYternment employes act ought to b9 enlarged and liberalized with a view to making the government liable Itt the same way as a private employer for the Injury of its workmen suf fered while in Its employ ft is the legitimate and approved practice of labor organizations to proMpose legislation of tills kind to the executive for recommendation to congress for action and it will be a pleasant duty on my part If lam elected as I expect to be to consideriall such labor proposals and urgeIupon congress those measures ap proved in the Republican platform as well as such others as commend themselves to my judgment and my desire to aid labor The functions of the commission of labor may very well be enlarged to make the bureau more useful to the cause of labor and all proposals in that direction win meet my hearty concurrence The bitterness and Injustice of the attacks made upon me by Mr Bryan by Mr Gompers by Mr Ful ler will not in the slightest degres turn me from my consistent attitude r toward labor or sympathetic Interest In its

Substantial A little care in one or two points will enable one to make shocks that iVill stand and keep the corn in good condition The tops of four hills pulled in and tied together form all the framework needed if the corn is set up firmly and evenly as it is cut Just a little slant toward the center should be given the first armfuls put up as the slope will increase all the timeThe corn should be put up all around the shocks as the work goes on not one side built up and then an other Even when there is only one man at work he can by a little care prevent the leaning or twisting of the w pH hock by piling too much against one side When the corn is planted in drills the stalks for tying together should be far enough apart to make the frame about square and any that may be between them should be cut outAfterr the shock Is put up tying must be attended to says Farm and Home ix Twine should be used for this al though cornstalks make a fair substi lute when two men do the work and

forests of the United States at the rate of 50 feet board measure a year for every man woman and child In Europe they use only 60 board feet Few Statements Could Be Made whichwould better convince the av erage man that this country leads the world in the demand for timber It is made by Treadwell Cleveland Jr in a circular which treats of the conservation of the forests soil water and all other great natural resources which has just been nub lished by the TJnitedJStates forest Service In speaking further of the consumption of timber in this coun try Mr Cleveland says In 30 Years AH Cut At this rate in less than thirty years all our remaining virgin tim ber will be cut Meantime the for ests which have been cut over are generally ina bad way for want of care they will produce only inferior second growth We are clearly over the verge ofa timber famine This is not due to necessity for the forests are one of the renewable resources Rightly used they go on producing crop after crop in definitely ThG countries of Europe know this and Japan knows it and their forests are becoming with time not less but more productive We probably still possess sufficient for est land to grow wood

in lumber produc Linn are enormous Take the case of yellow pine which now Beads the list in the volume of annual cut In 1907 it is estimated that only one halfof all the yellow pine cut dur fug the

the Waste The rest of the waste takes plac at the mill Of course it would never dot speak of the material reject ed at the mill as waste unless this material could be turned to use by some better and more thorough form ofutilization But in many cases we know and in many other cases we have excellent reason to believe that most if ntft allof this material could be used with profit ItTis sim a question of intelligent rinvesti notion and more than allof having the will to economize There are Other Ways rBut there ire other ways to con serve the forests besides cutting in half the present waste of forest pro ducts The forests can be made to produce three or four times as wipidly as they do at present This ii true of both the virgin forests rd the cutover lands Virgin for ests are often fully stocked with first class timber but this stock has been laid in very slowly on account of the wasteful competition which is carriedon constantly between the rival trees Then too in the virgin forests there are very many trees which have reached maturity arid stopped growing and these occupy space which if held by younger trees would be laying in a new stock con tsantly As regards tho cutover lard severe cutting followed by fire has checked growth so seriously that in most cases reproduction is both poor and slow while in many other cases there is no true forest reproduction at all

persons from crossing from one to the other platform The woman probably walked around the end of the fence but no one saw her until she appeared on the westbound track In a moment or two the 4J5 train

by high class singers must always be a thing to create infinite satisfaction One feels on coming awy from such a performance that he has been carried back to the days when there were masters in the field of art whose productions were marked by great care in the technical features while being full of the rarest melody that he has heard something far above the ragtime and slambang of the modern comic opera Two things stood out prominently apart from the work of Mme Monti Baldinithe magnificent sineing of Mr Dunsmore and the violin solos of Herr Jacques Kinsbergen Mr Dunsmore has a bass voice

chemists of the Department of Agriculture believe they have solved the problem of cheaper paver that will dispense altogether with the use of wood fiber The new material from which five grades of paper al ready have been made is the or dinary cornstalk and the officials to day predicted when the anufacture of the new kind of paper is started on a large scale it will be at least 50 per cent cheaper than the print paper now made from wood pulp The bureau has been working on the discovery a number of years but not until this week have the re suits been so positively successful as to permit any announcement The first practicable samples of the new paper have been manufactured by Dr H S Bristol and his assist antsDr Bristol has carried his exper iments to the point of making the paper in five shades White Paper From Outside The white paper is made from the hard outside shell of the stalk and the fellow gradjes from the pith The yellow grades have much longer fiber and resemble the paper made from linen rags or cotton This kind of paper is soft and pliable Millions of tons of cornstalks will be available for this new manufac hue At present the stalks are annually destroyed in enormous quan tities to get them out of the way or are simply turnedunder the soil with a plow to add slightly to the fertilization of the next years crop The process manufacturing the new invention is much easier than that involved in reducing wood puip ot paper The chemists have used in their experiments the soda cook ed process which has been found to be the best for making the finer grades of wood pulp papers But the cornstalks require only about two and a half holirs of cooking in this process against thirteen or four teen hours needed to soften the wood pulp Means Cut in Price So far the new paper has been made in laboratory without special machinery or the wholesale prbduc cheapnessbutperiment at once on a larger scale and the officials believe the price of white paper as yell as other grades degreeTheas based on the present cost of wood pulp paper which is 13a ton With wood costing 8a cord that is the price of the paper With corn stalks costing about 15 a ton add ing in the cost of bringing the bulky material to the Washington labora tory the cost has been about 14 a ton There is no doubt in the minds of department chemists that increas ed production will cut this cost in halfNo special growthof corn is neededsaid one of the chemists today We have used the ordinary stalk from the Virginia fields and the kind which is destroyed in waste ful quantities each year can now be turned to use Not only will the cost of paper be greatly reduced but the farmer will have anadded asset in a byproduct that ought to net him a neat sum each year- UNCLAIMED LETTERS Athey Harry

I Subscribed and sworn to before r November1908 JW POYNTER r Notary Public T THE ELECTION We are on tlfe ete of the elections arid both s express supreme confidence in the result Chairman Mack and Chairman Hitchcock claim over 300 electoral votes for their f particular candidates We believe the popular vote is going to be closer than it has been in any national elec- tionIt for years There is no question but that Taft will get far fewer votes fthan Roosevelt Even the RePubl- icans leaders concede this On the other hand Bryan will poll many hundreds df thousands more ballots Demtmore has been in any election since 1896 when Bryan first appeared in the Afield There is great unrest among the laboring men The hard times of the v last year and the forcing of the injunction is4ue to the front have caused a more active movement among the usbually apparent There seems to be little question that this agitation is helping the Democratic leader Another factor that is cutting some A little figure is the religion of Mr Taft Heis a Unitarian and in some of the Country districts this fact seems tq be influencing some votes against 4 him The latest forecasts from New York seem to favor the Republicans The great New York papers all in cline to the view that Taft will win the State with a closer fight between Hughes and Chandler for Governor The straw votes and observations from all sources seem to indicate that both Indiana and Ohio are very Brynanin Indiana and slightly in favor of Taft in Ohio Ohio has been so long a safe RepublicanState has cast its electoral vote so steadily for the Republican ticket in very nation al election since the war that it is hard to conceive that it may go Dem- ocraticp this year particularly when A favorite son is the Candidate v While the popular vote will we be jievefvbe close we think that the win jierwill have a substantialmajority in the electoral college The results IftBryan captures New and Ohio he wins easily If Taft carries these two States he will have a big ma jority in the electoral college 4 In Kentucky the outlook is for a Democratic victory Up to the last month the State was conceded to the- Democratic ticket But within the r last few weeks there has been a feel o ingjunong the Republicans that they had ji chance And some of the great papers have put the State in the Democratic column For our ti rselves we believe that the Demo r ratic party will carry Kentucky ii 1 r HALLOWEEN The boys evidently took our ad vice on Saturday night It was the quietest Halloween in years Little or no damage vas doneso far

whol1y disappeared And we are satisfied the Traction Company would have wel comed its disappearance as it would have saved th m tne expense of its Ifinal destruction We understand that Winchester is to have a better car and better ser vice beginning Tuesday of this week We trust that the report is correct but we propose to wait and see be fore commenting on it THE COUNTRY IS TO BE CONGRATULATED The question of who is to be president for the next four years is to be settleclttomorrow Each party ex= aggerates the benefits which willre sult from its success each overestimates the harmful results in the event their opponents are successful This isa great country and it will continue to grow and prosper in eith er event There has been a financial depression for the past year and as is usual in such cases the party in power is held responsible It is always so As a matter of fact the dominant party usually has little to do with it In the tomorrows result the de pression of the defeated will be off set by the elation of the victors Whoever iselected will be given cred it for all the good that comes and will be charged with all the harm done The partv paper will approve every act if it be done by their can didate the opposition will criticise every act whether good or bad We occupy an advantageous ground We as an independent paper can praise the good and condemn the evil in either organization Mr Bryan and Mr Taft differ as to policies but not as to purposes Both are high toned gentlemen both are men of very fine character both are devoted Americans The one that is chosen whether it be Mr Bryan or Mr Taft will to the best of his ability do all in his power for the upbuilding of this great country It is seldom in our history that we have had to choose between two such men Usually one or the other of the candidates has been named not be cause of his preeminent ability to fill the position but because of polit ical exigencies We have hadFill more and Polk and Buchanan and Hayes good men but not of the highest caliber x Mr Bryan has been long in the public eye he has grown steadily in his grasp of great questions Mr Taft has been a great Judge a great colonial governor and a successful administrator of a great office Whoever is chosen the United States is to be congratulated on getting a good President BQTt SIDES CONFIDENT That Succas Will Gome to

cally conceded by state leaders to be Republican It was also said that Mr Hitchcock was willing to stand or fall by his prediction of 325 votes made on Friday and was perfectly satisfied that it would be more nearly correct than Mr Macks when the returns are in Mr Mack declared that the only thing that can defeat Mr Bryan is the corrupt use of morieyHe said he had sent his last instructions to state chairmen to get out their vote early and to see that it was fairly counted We are through said Chairman Hitchcock Our fight Is won It was made on the plans agreed upon at the beginning of the campaign The Democratic national committee bases Its belief that Mr Bryan will be elected on the following four rea sons which have been incorporated into a statement by National Committeemen Josephus

with the mistakes of 12 years f Republican ad ministrationThis of voters will be fur ther strengthened by a new force in American politicsthe labor vote Assuming there were to be a strict party lineup at election the labor vote itself would turn the scales to Democratic success The labor party has put all It eggs into the Democratic basket and it must win to save them Mr Brvan himself has gained wonderful personal strength In the last few years Jn all parts of the country and thousands of voters who neither understood him nor his aims now place their absolute trust in him and his policies The Democratic national committee has brought all the elements of the party together it has the labor vote and Its remarkable accessions of strength from the Republican ranks together with Mr Bryans

observers Lieutenant Governor Drapers contest for the governorship with Senator James H Vahey is somewhat more in doubt The Republican managers look for the election of their candidate for governor by a substantial plurality while the Democratic leaders state that Senator Vaheys election is not improbable It is thought that the ratio between the two parties with the Republicans well in the majority

like a schoolgirl in her fresh gown burnished hair loosened and curling In riotous beauty across cheeks and ears He had seated himself on the wheel barrowagaIn She stood looking down at him hands now bracketed on her narrow him so close that the fresh rragrance or tier grew faintly percep tible a delicate atmosphere of youth mingling with the perfume of the young garden Nina basket on her arm snipping away with her garden shears glanced over her shoulder and went on snipping They did not notice how far away her agricultural ardor led her did not notice when she stood a moment at the gate looking back at them or when she passed out pretty head bent thoughtfully the shears swing ing loose at her girdle You are very like a boy some times said Eileenas young as Ger aid I often think especially when your hat is off You always look so per fectly groomed I wonder I wonder what you would look like if your hair were rumpled Try it he suggested lazily 11 I dont think I dare She raised her hand hesitated the gay daring in her eyes deepening to au dacity Shall U I Why not- Ttouch your hairrumple it as I would Geralds Im tempted to only rbnly WhatI know I couldnt Iit was only the temptation of a second She laughed uncertainly The suggestion of the Intimacy tinted her cheeks with its reaction She took a short step backward Instinct blindly stirring sobered her and as the smile faded from eye and lip his face changed TOO And far very far away in the silent cells of hisheart a distant pulse awokeHave you misunderstood me 1 she tasked in a low voice How child 2 I dont know Shall we walk a lit tleWhen they came to the stone fish pond she seated herself for a moment curiouslyrestlessmoved forward at hazard past the spouting fountain which was a driven well out of which a crystal column of water rose geyserlike dazzling In the westering sun rays Nina tells me that this water rises In the Connecticut hills he said and flows as a subterranean sheet under the sound spouting up here on Long Island when you drive a well She looked at the column of flash Ing water podding silent assent They moved on the girl curiously reserved noncommunicative head slight ly lowered the man vague eyed thoughtful pacing slowly at her side Behind them their long shadows trail ed across the brilliant grass Traversing the grove which encircled the newly clipped lawn now fragrant with sun crisped grass tips left In the wake of the mower he mentioned j moonlightShe up then away from him You seem to be enamored of the moonlight she said itAloneSometimes And at other times 1 He laughed Oh Im past the spooning age Are you glad She halted Yes because Im quite sure of you If you are I mean that I can always keep you for myself Cant I She was smiling and her eyes were clear and fearless but there was a wild rose tint on her cheeks which deepened little as he turned sbort In his tracks gazing straight at her You wish to keep me for your self herenekted laughing Yes Captain Selwyn Until you marry Is that it Eileen1 Yes until I marry And then well let each other go itt I think I told you that r would never marry Didnt IOh Then ours Is to be a lifelong and antisentimental contract Yes unless youmarry I promise not to he said unless you do I promise not to she said gayly unless you do There remains he observed but one way for you and I ever to marry anybody And as Im hors concours even that hope is ended She flushed her lips parted but she checked what she had meant to say and they walked forward together In silence for awhile until she had made up her mind what to say and how to exprqss it- Captain Selwyn there are two things that you do which seenr to me unfair You still have at times that faraway absent expression which ex eludes me and when I venture to break the silence you have a way of answering Yes child and No child as though you were inattentive and 1 had not yet become an adult That is my first complaint What are you laughing at It Is true and it con fuses and hurts me because I know II am Intelligent enough and old enough toto be treated as a woman a woman attractive enough to be reck beIfronting one another v Do you imagine he said in a low voice that I do not know all that flI dont know whether you do For all your friendshipfor all your liking and your kindness to mesomehow- II dont seem to stand with you as other women do I dont seem to stand their chances What chances VThe the consideration You dont call any other woman child do you You dont constantly remind other wo men of the difference In your ages do you You dont feel with other women that you are as XQU pease to call ithors concours out otthe running And somehow with me it humiliates because even if I am the sort of girl wno never means to marry you your attitude seems fp take away the pos sibility of my changing niy mind It dictates to me giving me no choice no liberty no personal freedom In the matter Its as though you considered me somehow utterly out of the ques tion radically unthinkable as a woman And you assume to take for granted that I also regard younsas hors concours Those are my grievances Captain Selwyn And I dont regard you so And Iand It troubles me to be excludedto be found wanting in adequate in anything that a woman should vbe I know that you and I have no desire to marry each other butbut please dont make the reason for It either your age or my physical Immaturity or Intellectual inexperi enceOne of those weather stained seats of Georgia marble stood imbedded under the trees near where she had halted and she seated herself out wardly composed and inwardly a little frightened at what she had said- As for Selwyn he remained where he had been standing on the lawns velvet edge and raising her eyes again her heart misgave her that she had wantonly strained a friendship which had been all but perfect and now he was moving across the patL toward her a curious look in his face whb h she could not Interpret She looked up as he approached and stretched out her hand Forgive me Captain Selwyn she said I am a childa spoiled one and I have proved it to you Will you sit here beside me and tell me very gently what a fool I am to risk strain Ing the friendship dearest to me In the whole world And will you fix my penanceYou have fixed it yourself he said HowBy challenge of your woman hoodI did not challenge No you defended You are right The girl I cared torthe girl who was there with me on Brier Water so many many centuries agothe girl who years ago leaned there beside me on the sundialhas become a memory What do you mean she asked faintly Shall I tell your Yes 1 You will riot be unhappy If J tell you2 Nno Have you any Idea what I am going to say Eileen She looked up quickly frightened at the tremor in his voice IDontdont say it Captain Sel win penaIlcejtHe no said quietly J was afraid you could not listen You see Eileen that after all a man does know whenvhe Is done for Caotain Selwyn She turned and caught his hands In both of hers her eyes bright with tears Is thS the penalty for what I said Did you think I invited this Invited No child he said gen tly I was fool enough to believe in myself that Is all I have always been on the edge of loving you Only In dreams did I ever dare set foot across that frontier Now I have dared I Jore you That Is all and It must not distress you But It does not she said I have always loved youdearly dearly Not in that way I dont know how Must it be in that way Captain Selwyn Can we not go on In the other way that dear way which II havealmost spoiled Must we be like other peo plermust sentiment turn it all to com monplace Listen to me I do love you It Is perfectly easy and simple to say it But It Is not emotional it is not sentimental Wont you take me for what I am and as I ama girl still young devoted to you with all her soul happy with you believing im plicitly In you deeply deeply sensible of your goodness and sweetness and loyalty to ber I am not a woman I was a fool to say so But you you are so overwhelmingly a man that if it were In me to lovein that wayit would be you Do you understand me Or have I lost a friend Will you forgive my foolish boast Can you still keep me first in your heart as you are In mine and pardon in me all that I amnot Can you do these things because I ask you Yes he said Chpterl9 His ERALD came to Silver side two or three times during the early summer arriving usually on Friday and always re maining until the follow ing Monday morning All his youthful admiration and friendship for Selwyn had returned That was plainly evident and with it something less of callow self sufficiency He did not appear to be as cock sure of himself and the world as he had been There was less bumptious ness about him less aggressive com placency Somewhere and somehow somebody or something had come Into collision with him but who or what this had been he did not offer to con fide in Selwyn and the older man dreading to disturb the existing accord between them forbore to question him or invite even indirectly any confi dence not offered Selwyn and Eileen also noticed that he became very restless toward the end of his visits at Sail verside as though something In the city awaited himsome duty or responsibility not entirely pleasant There was too something of sober ness amounting at moments to dlscdo tented listlessness not solitary brood ing for at such moments he stuck to Selwyn following him about and remaining rather close to him as though the elder mans mere presence was a comfort even a protection- So their relations remained during the early summer and everybody sup posed that Geralds two weeks vaca tion would be spent there at Silverside Apparently the boy himself thought so too for he made some plans ahead and Austin sent down a very hand some new motor boat for him Then at the last minute a telegram arrived saying that he had sailed for Newport on Neergards big yacht And for two weeks no word was received from him at Silverside One day in September Selwyn wroto Gerald asking him to bring Edgerton Lawn and come down to Silverside for the purpose of witnessing some exper iments with the new smokeless explo sive chasoite Young Lawn came by the first train Gerald wired that he would arrive the following morning He did arrive unusually pallid al most haggard and Selwyn who met him at the station and drove him over from Wyossett ventured at last to give the boy a chance But Gerald remained utterly unresponsive stolidly so and the other in stantly relinquished the hope of any Neergard confidence at that time shifting the conversation at once tothe object and reason of Geralds coming and gayly expressing his belief that the time WP s very near at hand when chasoite would figure heavily in the worlds list of commercially valuable explosives It was early In August that Selwyn had come to the conclusion that his chaosite was likely to prove a commer cial success And now in September his experiments had advanced so far that he had ventured to invite Ajisgn To be coutinw d- jiIf Quality Appearance Price The Three Great Points in

meaning of the Vi4term Industrial Education Industrial education ought to trade schools and nothing but trade schools that is schools directed primarily and expressly to the preparation of young men and women for the trades All their whole time to the schools just as they do to an ordinary high school or by pupils who being already at work are allowed by their employ J ers to give from six to twelve hours a week to the trade school In recent times we have begun to take a rather different view of education from that we used to take We used to thinkof education as something which was going to last perhaps to the fourteenthor eighteenth year or in extreme cases to the twentyfourth Lnor twentysixth year We no longer think of education in this way Edu cation should be continuous throughout life and particularly it should be continuous during the years of youth The trade schools should be continuation schools for those children who are unfortunately obliged to I leave the r orbeven earlier These trade schools will require that children be kept under the ob servation of the community up to the seventeenth or eighteenth year and be absolutely required to attend a continuation school for part time at formerPe We want these industrial schools these trade schools for children of from fourteen to seventeen or eighteen years of age But how are wet going to get the children into these schools 7 Suppose we organize the schools how are the children to be got into them In the first place by the help of law extending the limit of compul sortf education But how shall the decision be made that certain children will go into industrial schools others into the ordinary high schools and others again into the mechanic arts high schools Where is that decision to be made It must bea choice or a selection Here we come upon a new function for the teachers in our elementary schools and in my judg ment they have no function more important The teachers of the elemen 4tart schools ought to sort the pupils and sort them by their evident or i probable destinies I am afraid that strikes your at once as an undemo cratic idea but let us see whether it is undemocratic or not l- ItheINatural Teacherr By JAMES P MAGENIS ShouldAim Climb Higher BENHAM Confusion Meaning The feminization of the schools it is termed or in another form the question whether female instructors in large num bers tend to make male pupils less manly has secured recognition in the forum of free discussion A number of educators of prominence have taken sides and the issue involvedwould seem to adjust itself in the goryofwomans capabilities Followed logically to its natural sequence it answers itself Tn womanlnndland children the Creator the universe has seen fit to place strong ties of attraction and affection The average woman is attracted to the average child by an inherent quality that something which makes any child more to a woman than to a man and the child in turn reciprocates Man may amuse entertain a child temporarily but invariably the child tires of the man if the man does not first tire of the child With woman it is different Why Ask the stars why they pursue unvarying courses Ask the seasons the reasons for their round It is so That is all Thus with womans established advantage at the outset and with her natural gifts she seems especially lected by a higher than human law to care for the young and the world over among the civilized aria the save age this is the rule Thus woman is the natural teacher Teaching is part her natural vocation whether it be in the schoolroom the home The question may arise Is she the better one to do this That is easy to decide Her only possible competitor is man Is man better adapted to train the young than is woman Has he that peculiar insight into the little mind Has he the intuition whicn latent motherhood provides Has Jie the enduring patience coupled with that gentle per suasion and perseverance which captivates masters and controls the young The history humanity says no V By 1EV DE WITT M as of or of or of We are in danger of meagerness in our ordinary daily experience Life is so monotonous and unbroken for many of us Todays proceedings so nearly duplicate tomorrows We rise and dress andeat and do our stint of work and go to bed and our days task is done We rise and dress and do our stint again and another days task is done We grind our life out in hours of feeding working sleeping and at last we die and some one else drops into the routine and people say The world moves on As if that kindof motion meant indeed that the world moves onw Why On Itmight be moving backward just as well The people who drop into these ruts formed by the wheels of the mighty car of Juggernaut which we call modern life are in danger of having the spiritual nature crushed out of them They are in danger of becoming materialists un consciously themselves and laboring to secure their daily bread instead of making their daily bread the means of securing life The way to cope with this danger is by stern determination to climb higher to rise above it to get into a clearer and fresher atmosphere to breathe spiritual truth The man who because his surroundings a e sordid denies the great realities of the unseen world is a fool You maybe living now at a lower level but there is no necessity for

dor the great Englishman Landor he saidwas at the same time the most iolent and brutal and the most delicate and sensitive of men He adored flowers The gardens of his beautiful villa in Florence were full of flowers and the poet walked among them daily never plucking them only bending over them reverently to admire their loveliness and their perfume Landors cook one day served him a wretched dinner and in his rage the poet threw the man out of the window into a bed of splendid roses CAs the cook writhed with a broken leg below Landor from the window exclaimed ina horrpr stricken voice
