TO MY SON.
Do you know that your soul la of my aoul such part
That you seem to be fibre and core of my heart?
None other can pain me ns you, dear, can do—
None other can ploanu me or pain me as you.
I Remember, tho world will be quick with Ita blame
If shadow or stain ever darken your name;
"Like mother, like son.” is a saying ho true.
The world will judge largely of "mother” by you.
He yours, then, the task, if task it shall be.
To force this proud world to do homage to me;
lie sure it will say when its verdict, you’ve won:

iMargnret Johnson Grafllin.
The following beautiful tribute to
the .lew ia from a speech delivered in
the U. S. Senate a few weeks ago by
Senator Reed, of Missouri, opposing tho
literary clause of tho immigration bill
then pending in that body—
‘Consider the Jew!
‘Seek the source of the century-old
horrors he has endured and you will
enter the cavern of ignorance where
dwells the serpent of superstition and
its pestilential offspring, persecution.
‘The Jew has been, and in some
places still is, an outcast simply and
only because he has steadfastly refused
to abandon the God of his fathers.
‘For this, three thousand years ago
were his burdens in Egypt made great
er than he could bear. For this were
his cities burned, the walls of his capi
tal razed, his temples destroyed, his
altars desecrated, his people slaugh
tered; for this waB he carried into cap
tivity by Syrian and Babylonian des
pots, his land reduced to a desert
sown with the bones of murdered mil
lions. Yet, in spite of all, for fifteen
hundred years the Jew clung to the
horns of his altar, cherished his temple,
and reverenced his God.
“For fifteen centuries the world was
enveloped in the night of bigotry, ig
norance, and terror—a night illumined
by a single torch of truth, held aloft by
the hand of the Jew.
“The Jew alone during all that peri
od of terror, vice, tyranny, despair and
loathsome idolatry, taught the doctrine
of one Supreme God. He alone fol
lowed a code of laws which embraced
every principle essential to liberty,
morality, and religion. His laws and
his religion were to those of the other
nations ofThe earth as a star of inde
scribable glory shining through the
clouds of a storm-rent Bky upon a sea
“Then came the dawn of Christ!
anity, but its glory fell first upon the
land of the Jew. The God mother was
a Jewess. The Twelve Desciples were
Hebrew fishermen who spread their
nets along the shores of the sea of
“From this race we get our religion,
from its sacred writings our morals.
It preserved the greater part of our
knowledge of ancient history. The sub-
limest examples of sacred poetry and
the tenderest expressions of exalted
devotion fell from the pens of inspired
“Obliterate the work of the Jew be
fore the Christian era and you destroy
the old Bible and the Ten Command
ments. Strike out the work of the
Jew of the Christian era and you ob
literate the New Testament.
“Your religion, the fundamentals of
your laws, your ideas of virtue, your
precepts of morality—all these you get
from the Jew. From the lips of the
son of a Jewess came the sublime com
mand, ‘Do unto others aB you would
they should do unto you.’
“If you say some of the Jews cruci
fied the Savior, I answer it was also
Jews who followed Him to Cavalry. It
was a Jew who drew the nails from the
cross. It was Jews who reverently
bore the body to the sepulcher. It was
Jews who‘awaited the glory of the
resurrection. It was Jews to whom
He appeared; with whom He walked
“It was these same Jews who went
into all the world teaching His word.
They were beaten; they were impris
oned; they were fed to wild beasts by
those they came to save. They gave
their lives to the propagation of Chris
tianity. The race has ever since been
persecuted by those whom a part of
the race converted.
“But as civilization has iprogreased,
as the lighi of reason has penetrated
the night of ignorance, as man haH
emerged from the jungles of barbar
ism and approached the sun-lit plains
of civilization, persecution of the Jew
has lapsed or ceased. Only Russia and
one or two others of the tardy nations
continue the diabolic practice. Let us
not become either assistants or parties
to the infernal policy.
“If you were to name the ten great
est statesmen of the century, you
would be compelled to include tho elder
Disraeli, an English Jew.
“If you were to name the ten great
est judges, you would include in the
list a Jew, Rufus Daniel Isaacs, Lord
Chief Justice of England.
“If you were to think of great law
yers of the century, your mind would
call up the name Juda P. Benjamin,
Attorney-General of the Confederacy,
and remember him as a Jew.
"If you were asked to name the fore
most actress of the world, you would

“If you were to pursue your inquiry,
you would find that in law, medicine,

own with competitors of every rnce.

Some one got out in the street and

The New Cook.
The “lady of the houBe,” who had
been wrestling with the servant prob
lem for several years, recently took a
new departure with the hope of solv
ing the riddle, says the Washington
Star. She imported a young colored
girl from one of the lower counties of
Virginia, with the determination to do
or die in the attempt to model her into
an accomplished cook, at least. The
usual hitches and disappointments oc
curred and the task proved a most try
ing one. The housekeeper persevered,
however, until the climax materialized
a few days ago. Entering the kitchen
one afternoon the lady of the house in
“Mollie, have you cooked the mac
“What’s macaroni!” the importation
from the country wanted to know.
“Why, here it is,” the employer ex
plained, indicating the raw material.
“What does you do wid dat?” the
girl then asked.
“Eat it, of course,” was the reply.
“Good laws,” Mollie ejaculated. “I
thought that stuff was what you sucks
The Legacies of Militarism.
The London Economist estimates that
the first seven months of the war
have added to the debts of the five
great belligerents a total of more than
ten billion dollars, of which two and a
half billion each is borne by Russia and
Germany, one billion eight hundred
million each by France and Austria-
Hungary, and one and a half billion by
Great Britain, It is calculated, more
over, that if tho war continues through
tho current year the debts of these na
tions on January the first, 1916, will be:
Russia, $9,600,000,000; Germany, $7,-
600,000,000; France, $11,000,000,000;
Austria-Hungary, $6,600,000,000; and
Great Britain, $7,800,000,000—a total of
What a fearful burden for tho people
of Europe! What a terrible tax on the
mass of men by whose hard earnings
tho weight of this vast debt must be
lifted! For years the cost of war prep
aration has been well-nigh unbearable;
and now the cost of war itself threatens
to be overwhelming. To the victors,
it will bo heavy enough, whatever their
requitals; to the vanquished it will be
almost fatally crushing.
Whether or not the economic folly of
war will lead eventually to universal
and enduring peace, it seems certain
that in the dark aftermath of this war
the people of Europe will think more
intently and profoundly than ever be
fore upon the tragic issue of militarism.
Through poverty and suffering, they
will come face to face with the fright
ful legacies of war. They will learn
that the horror of the battlefield is
merely a prologue to innumerable other
horrors that will come and linger when
the fighting is over. It will only be
naturul if the war is followed by revo
lutions, of one kind or another, against
the tyranny of great armaments.
To the Housewife.
Madam, if your husband is like moBt
men he expects you to look after the
health of yourself and children. Coughs
and colds are the most common of the
minor ailments most likely to lead
lo serious diseases. A child is much
more likely to contract diphtheria or
scarlet fever when it has a cold. If you
will inquire into the merits of the va
rious remedies that are recommended
for coughs and colds, you will find tbit
Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy stands
high in the estimation of the people
who use it. It is prompt and effectual,
pleasant and safe to take, which are
qualities especially to be desired when
a medicine is intended for children. For
sale by all dealers.
The Old Songs.
According to a recent order of the
State Board of Administration the pu
pils of the public schools of Kansas are
to have a unique May-day celebration.
The first day of the month they are
to raise their voices in the old-fashioned
songs. There is nothing the matter
with Kansas in this latest idea. We
are, of course, a little partial to old
things. Time endows the past with a
certain glamour. For instance, the
“pies that mother used to make” is a
tribute more to old-fashioned mother
hood than the pies. The pies that are
gone, with their indigestible qualities
forgotten, any reputable baker of to
day could easily surpass. But the old
songs remain in greater or less degree
of popularity, and we know that they
are superior to the present product of
hurried tempo and equally hurried com
position. The Kansas idea is worth
copying. Indeed, it would be highly
educational. It would teach the child
that there is such a thing as melody—
a quality that has disappeared in our
weltering mass of syncopation.
The true law, everywhere and at all
fimes, delighteth in the payment of
just debts. Blessed is the man that
pays. The practice of paying promptly,
and to the last cent, tendB to the culti-
nation of one of the most excellent
traits of human character. If the
debtors were guided by their own true
interest, on an enlarged scale, they would
be even more clamorous to pay than
creditors are to receive; lenders would
be more frequent than calls for money.
Debt is the source of much unhappi
ness. The best possible thing to be
done with a debt is to pay it.—Judge
Logan E. Bleckley.
