Should Hasten Peace.
There 'is a state of unrest every
where following the armistice. While
mere has been a cessation of actual
?ostilities, peace has not been restor
;d to the world. The nations, not
?ven the neutral nations, are alto
rether at liberty to return to a be
Tore-the-war basis. There is a gener
ll waiting, an jmpatient waiting, for
die peace conference to complete its
vork and m?ke a formal declaration
)f peace. .1 this is done, there will
je an increasing unrest and the long

Would that there existed some
jower to speed up, using every day
parlance, the deliberations of the
icace conference. Nothing would
nore effectively stem the tide of Bol

leclaration of peace, thereby putting
;ach nation, as it were, again on its
>\vn responsibility. Furthermore, if
;his unsettled condit' lasts much
onger, there will ( ubtless result
commercial and financial complica
bas that will not be easily overcome.
Doubtless every nation now has its
peculiar problems, just as the South
las its cotton problem, and such mat
i?re can not stand indefinitely with
)ut serious consequences resulting to
;ome interests. \
Nothing would be more welcome
low throughout the entire world than
in official declaration of peace by the

Portions of Europe are in a worse

ind in provinces of Russia that are

.vas cut through South Carolina and
Georgia by Sherman and his vandals. !
Even in the sections of the nations ;
that hav? been at war for more than
loxa years that are not so sorely j
stricken, every resource, inch ding
;he man power, is almost irreparably !
itplcted. It will therefore be neces
sary for large areas of Europe to '
ook to other nations to partially sup
ply food for a year or more, and a-1
jout the only nation of any size that
?an respond to appeals for bread is
America. The exports of breadstuffs
:o Europe during the past eight
months show an increase of 50 per

The farmers of America will reap
i rich harvest from the unfortunate j
people of Europe. The demand for ?
raw material cf all kinds will be the '
greatest in the world's history and
;he prices realized will also be the
ugliest. The South will bc called up- j
>n to clothe the naked belligerents:
ind the West and Northwest will be
:alled upon to supply a large part of
heir food. Surely the people of the
jniied States are a favored people,
laving their barns bursting with
den ty, what . they do not need at
mme can b" shipped abroad at

.ears that immediately follow the ;

D' a:- Advertiser:
The benevolent i andency of the
day favors the buildir.fr of schools,
museums and hospitals in memory of
family and friends, rather than the
old custom of erecting marble shafts.
This is the true spirit, for through
such reverence for the dead we up
lift the minds and alleviate the suf
ferings of the living. Such a worthy
institution is the Forsyth Dental In
firmary built in nineteen-fourteen
by'Thomas and John Forsyth in mem
ory of their two brothers, and dedi
cated to thousands bf children of
Boston who, without this opportuni
ty would be neglected. .Only those
children who .are very poor are al
lowed to come. No charge is made ex
cept that each child brings five cents
in order that he may not think he
is purely a "charity patient. The pa
tients are from one to sixteen years
of age. One room built and fumished
especially for the children is equip
ped with a child's library and little
chairs. The walls are decorated with
scenes in colors from the various
fairy stories, and in the center of the
room is a, tiny aquarium . filled with
gold fish and turtles for the amuse
ment of the little boys and girls.
The building is white on the ex
terior and interior and spotlessly
(rlean and sanitary. The efficient man
agement of the large city schools has j
nurses who see the children who need
the dental treatment and send them |
to the Infirmary. There is a lecture j
room where they are taught dental
hygiene from illustrations on the
The Infirmary is not only for pa
tients, but for students who take a
twelve months' course and then may
become dentists, assistants or put
the work to any practical advantage
they' like. The walls of their lecture
rooms are so made that the teaching
by stereopticon slides is possible by
throwing the picture on the wall in
stead of on a curtain.
This Infirmary is a great blessing
for the children who . come from
crowded tenements to this magnifi
cent building situated on th? Fenway
Park, where they have a glimpse of
growing trees and more fresh air and
sunshine- than they are accustomed
to. Health is certainly one of the first
requisites for any sort of progress.
These children make better students
and will make better men and women
because of the far seeing philanthro
py of two men. Marble and; granite
make .1 better memorial in the form
of a building wiffen they enclose with
in their walls the patient or the stu
dent, than when they stand alone on
a street or on a battlefield. Two hun
dred and fifty children every day
leave the walls of the Forsyth Den
tal Infirmary. Would that all the
memorials built were the means to a
great end, that of uplifting society,
not an empty show. ?
