House Too Large Since Cordelia Is
Gone and Anthony Going.
The city home of Anthony J, Drexel
BIddle, 2VH Walnut street, has been put
up for sale. The reason given by R. M.
Hunter, who has charge of the property,
Is that, since the marriage of Miss Cor
delia BIddle and in view of the coming
marriage of Anthony, Jr., to Miss Mary
Duke, the home will be too large for Mr.
and Mrs. BIddle. The other son is away
at school most of the time.
Fifty-eight thousand, six hundred dol
lars was paid for the property whin Mr.
BIddle bought It In the early 'SO'fl. It la
now valued at $66,000, becauso of Improve
ments and additions- A restriction over
three or four houses to the west of tho
property, under which no building muy
bo put up extending; beyond tha present
depth, is a valuable clause in the BIddle

Arms and the Race
"Thoso who argue that an Incrcaso In
tho slzo of tho American army would turn
tho American people Into mllltailsts pay
n pretty poor compliment to tho com
mon senso nnd tho rooted good quntltlcs
of our people."
Unfortunately, whonMr. R. M.Johnston
uses Mich arguments in his "Arms nnd
tho Rnco" (Century Company, N. Y.),
it is lather illlllcult to meet his objec
tions. He seems to have tho Idea that
the Americans enjoy n comer on "com
mon senso"; while most of us know that
Jingo spirit flourishes here oh elsewhere.
In his contribution to the war problem,
Mr. Johnston gives comparatively little
heed to tho alternatives for war, and
works pretty surely, though with an ex
cellent historical backing, on tho as
sumption that we must arm further. And
ho oven goes so far as to say that tho
energy which war gives her combatants,
"military enterprise" nnd such qualities,
will more than offset nny possible harm
that a country may suffer from tho par
tial destruction of her mnlo population.
Assuming then that wo must arm
anil tho United States has much to fear
from Japan at tho end of the present
struggle Mr. Johnston gives prncllcnil
figures for tho defense of this country.
Nor Is It wise tn overlook his scholarly
remarks and deductions on war In gen
cial. Maxim Takes
Off the Silencer
Tho title of Hudson Maxim's "Defence
less America" (Hearst's International
Library Company,-N. Y.,) Indicates suf
ficiently In which direction his sympathies
lli, and a more intimato acquaintance
with the book corroborates the llrst Im
pression. To Mr. Maxim war Is a neces
sity, consequently, tho more thorough
arming of the United States is a natural
conclusion.. The few defenses which tho
author puts forward for tho pacifists aro
quickly borne down by his refutations.
But such phrases ns "silly Impracticable
nonsenso of some of the dubs of peace"
and "pt-rnlrlous propngandlsm of the
pacifists," hardly show an open-mlndod-ness
to the alternatives of war nnd
armaments. Though Mr. Maxim admits
that times havo changod, ho says, "the
relation of strength to" weakness remains
unchanged, and tho reward for strength
nnd tho penalty for weakness are a3
great as they ever were." What n. sad
knowledge of tho possibilities of human
Improvement when care for tho wean nnd
suffering Is in tho minds of so many peo
ple! But Mr. Maxim has based his book on a
rich knowledge, nnd writes fascinatingly
about details of aerial warfare, big guns
and modern war methods. A number of
excellent charts with which Mr. Maxim
Illustrates his arguments nnd facts on
naval methods, strategic positions, etc.,
aro valuable and Interesting to the stu
dent, ns well as to the layman. He can
enjoy thoso oven It he cannot agree with
tha suggestion that a congressional In
vestigation should rid the country of tho
pacifists, whose "treason" Is harmful,
even In times of peace.
Eliot's Road Toward Peace
It Is Inevitable that a writer who uses
such terms as "International self-control,-'
"International courts," and who speaks
of an international police force, should
sooner or later be dubbed a "dreamer" or
a "theorist," by the "practical man,"
even though he has not yet Joined open
ly the ranks of the pacifists. But at
least President Eliot cannot be accused
of youth. His abstract thoughts on the
question of war must receive very seri
ous consideration, for In the end they
aro amply backed by a knowledge
of history, human psychology and splen
did universal alms. In his "Road Toward
Peace" .(Houghton Mifflin Company) a
book compiled of lectures, essays and cor
respondenceMr. Eliot makes very point
ed observations concerning the United
States, history, war in general, and the
European war In'partlcular. It he speaks
of the fact that the Germans have built
too strongly on the "religion of valor";
If he arguou aptly that might does not
make right; and If he proves that the at
titude of aermany toward her women I?
Just part and parcel pf her wrong military
spirit; then It Is evident that his con
tributions to the question of arms and
fighting have significant value, Through
the thoroughness of his well-trained brain
Mr. Eliot can Bee s many points of vital
Importance on this question of war, that
H would be Impossible to clasp him wlh
one-sided enthusiasts of either party,. But
though Mr, Eliot sees only the "road to
peace," the less radical pacifists may
call him comrade. His belief In some
thing greater than armed force Is well
expressed by the following:
"Let us not dream of abandoning our
faith that human relations should be, nay,
shall be, determined not by arrogant force,
but by considerations of Justice, mercy,
love and good-will."
Probable the most unsparing indictment
of Germany that has come from Great
Britain since the World War began Is

"Conscription Is dead," the nuthor says
tit his preface. In view of the upheaval

this stiiti-mcnt has unusual Interest. For

Doctor Cook says, "havo produced the
temporary luln. Intellectual nnd moral,
as well as military, of a nation which
might have ranked nmong tho highest

Doctor Cook permits himself to be re

Our Knowledge of Christ
Every little while u book stands up out
of the welter of icllgloua controversy and
restatement by reason of Its simplicity
and purpose. The present case, "Our
Knowledge of Christ" (Henry Holt & Co.,
New York), presents tho main facts of
Christ's life, the relation of tho Dibit and
tho Church to these, nnd discusses most
of the moot questions of Christian argu
ment in n spirit of research and fairness
which makes Lucius Hopkins Miller's
book decidedly readable.
Why la a book title? No one who seeks
light in tli.it question will Ilnd It by read

ways authois have of selecting names for

by rights, a village Idyll. In reality, It Is

The Rat Pit
Tito most Impresslvo things nbout
Patrick MncGlll's "Rat Pit" (George H.
Doran, N. Y.) Is Its realism. The "Milk
bathed" classes may dislike to hear that
the Irish poor aro so poor, so wretched
and so ignorant as Mr. MacGlll says:
they may shrink nt the thought that the
Injustices of man and the upper classes
can bring such suffering to Nornh Ryan;
nnd they may go so fnr as to deny tho
existence In other places of "Rat-Pits,"
llko the Glascow Lodging house, nil over
tho world. Hut they must admit that
every word of Mr. MacGIU's story Is
finally true, and that when such truths
are painted with deep human sympathy
and understanding, they servo a double
purpose to onllghtcn the Ignorant nnd
give promise of better understanding of
the Buffcrers. Mr. MacGlll knows his
ground, and tho story which ho weaves
round the llfo of a Donegal girl. Is simply
the background for a broader philosophy
for theso born In tho unlucky strata of
society. And though tho incidents of
tho story nnd Its atmosphere pile higher
and higher the reader never has tho
feeling that they nro piled up for effect
other than tho effect of truth.
