GOOD NEWS FROM EUROPE.
Like a ray of sunlight glinting thro'
the war clouds which shadow Europe
comes a brief dispatch from Ber-y
deaux that Madame Sarah Bern
hardt has successfully stood the
shock of the amputation of her limb
and is steadily improving.
Every man and woman who has
been enthralled by the surpassing his
trionic talent of this remarkable
woman will delight in the tidings and
voice a prayer that she may speedily
recover her physical health and with
her great gifts unimpaired.
Rosine Bernhardt, better known to
the stage as Sarah, is now nearly 71
years old. She has been constantly
before the theatergoers of the whole
world since 1867 and has delighted
untold thousands by her artistic im
persons in "Camille," "Theodora,"

"STEC DID RIGHT." Stephen
Stec was inspired by divine love that
stood porter at the door of thought
to protect his little brother from
chastisement, and in protecting his
dear parents from anxiety and worry
he was rewarded by a higher ppwer
that saves us from sickness, sin and

SPANKING CHILDREN. I have
read the story of Stephen Stec. I do
not think it was loyalty as much as
fear. His mother or father must
have been in the habit of spanking
the boys or they would have told.
A case similar to this in some re
