Were the history of Intolerance written in picture, the effect
pon the mind of the person who studied this picture would be
fearful to contemplate. The heart of intolerance ia the desire that
baa come down thru the area to tubject the will of free-thinker
to the will of a single tyrant or a powerful oligarchy.
That picture would be a composite one. One of ita character
istics ia Dogmatism. Dogmatism spesks with absolute authority
and possesses all knowledge and all learning. All Inventive ge
nua that haa found ila way into the world ia wrong if it disagrees
with the opinion of Dogmatism., I am the Great I AM.
Another characteristic of the picture la Orthodoxy, which has
sworn vengeance upon any new Idea or new thought that comes
into the world. Any discovery of a new method, or an Improve'
ment over the old, is a sin against God and the Divine Plan.
Another characteristic of the picture ia Ignorance. Ignorance
la illogical, superstitious and cowardly. It cannot reason in
straight lines. It starts an argument on a false premise and thinks
the point ia proven.
The next characteristic is Selfishness. Selflshness will never
own its chief quality. It considers itself liberal, brotherly, a pro
moter of good, and a disciple of the Father.
Ware have been fought and blood shed over this picture of In
tolerance. Religion has had Ita aet-backa and churches split in
twain because of this picture. In fact, the picture haa wrought
such havoc in the minds of the people down thru the ages as to
cause them to undertake to obliterate it from the face of the
earth. But it ctill shows itself. Here ia a religious cult that
faithfully, tho Inconsistently, consigns all other religious cults to
eternal hell-Are. There is a political body that has the gall to
claim that only followers of that particular political faith can
be right And in it all, and thru it all, they are trying to fortify
their positions by the teachings and the example of
Jesus Christ the greatest believer in a universal brotherhood
that ever live'. He was practically void of creed and spent much
of his ministry in this world breaking down the formalities that
were undemanding the religion of the living God. Are we Intol
erant ? If we think we are not, let us examine our attitude toward
people who do not think as we do!
The Demand for Education
We are now entering upon the season for school enthusiasm.
Tho the atmosphere of the month of September has a tinge of
autumn, with its falling leaves and withering vegetation, yet it is
buoyant with the spirit of ambitious youlh.
September is the month when millions of young men and wo
men, boys and girls, and little tots enter school. They are work-'
ing in a quarry, as it were, preparing the material for buildinp;
the highways of life. Getting reac'y for school is a time of ex
citement The six-year-old child jumps with glee at the thought
of a bright new book, a clean slate, and a red apple, that are to
be carried to school during the month of September.
School life has not yet become monotonous; everything Is fresh
and new and joy is unbounded.
The greatest system every inaugurated in America is the sys
tem of free education. The greatest improvement on that system
is the law compelling parents to send their children to school.
When we cease to support the public and private educational in
stitutions of our land, and to encourage them in every possible
wsy, when we cease to make their continuance a part of our life's
program, we open the way for the disintegration of the foundation
of our own democracy. The schools and colleges of every kind
and description are bursting their walls with students. There ia
not a creditable school in the country that ia not straining ita
maximum rapacity to care for the students who are rushing in.
It Is a rather interesting fact that as times become prosperous
and wages and salaries rise, interest In school lags; while, on
the other hand, when a depression occurs, It brings to our colleges
rreat crowds of students. During a period of depression or In
dustrial unrest it is a good time for young people to prepare for
a period of prosperity. It is also a sign of the stability of our
national life. If people become anarchistic and revolutionary dur
ing periods of depression, serious will be the consequences; but
when young people turn to institutions of learning during the
periods of their idleness, they are fortifying themselves and
the nation against dissatisfaction.
U't us support the educational institutions of America.

COUNCIL TO SUPPORT HEALTH
At the meeting of the City Coun
cil, Monday, September 11, it was
unanimously decided that the Coun
cil would insist upon the rigid en
forcement of the sanitary ordinance
passed and approved, May 8, 1922.
This ordinance was published in
The Citizen, August 81. Every doc
tor in Berea, except one, and he ia
out of town, has been interviewed on
this subject and has expressed hia
hearty support to this ordinance.
The ordinance reads as follows:
It shall be unlawful for the owner
or agent of any premises or real
estate within the city of Berea, Ky.,
upon which a building ia situated, and
where no system of sewage disposal
approved by the State Board of
Health is provided or maintained to
either let, lease, or permit the same
to be occupied for residence purposes,
or for business or other purposes,
which necessitates the occupation of
such building or premises by human
being, unless every such building or
I remises shall be provided with ade
quate privy or water-closet equip
ment, constructed, equipped and main
tained in a manner satisfactory to
the State and County Board of
Every dwelling or other structure
within the city of Berea, Ky., which ia
not provided with a lawful privy r
closet is hereby declared to be insani

heslth when occupied, and it shall he

to post or cause to be posted in a
conspicuous place upon dwelling or
structure, whether it be occupied or
unoccupied, a notice giving warning

PRACTICAL RELIGION AND
LESS FORMALITY IN CHl'RCH
Rev. E. F. Zeigler pastor of the
Presbyterian! Church at Rochelle,
Illinois, urges the church to put
aside formal and legalized religion
and go out into the world for the
good of humanity and live a more
piactical Christianity. Can a for
malized and legalized church win an
informal and toiling people? This

masses to find the spirit of Jesus.
Jesus renounced formal religion; he
preached and taught a simple gospel
which the people could understand.
From the time of Jesus to the refor

stressed but the spirit of brother

not enough practical, personal Chris

who compose the church of today.

Mr. Zeigler holds that all things

THE WOMAN'S Xl'B
The first meeting of the Woman's
Club for the year 1022-28 will be held
at the home f , Mrs. Edward on
Wednesday, ScptOTiiner 20. A mtrsafnl
program will be renmWeJ amt every
member is urged to come.
During the summer the Club has
backed up some movements which it
hoped will In the future develop in
to resl mediums of community serv
ice. At the Berea Fair the Health
and Hygiene Committee held a very
interesting and instructive Baby
Show, not so mu'-h for beauty aa
for health. Quite a number of babies
were examined, and there would have
bien a larger number had it not been
for a misunderstanding of the time
alloted for the examination. A live
ly interest was also taken by the
children in the Health Poster Con
test. Some excellent posters were
displayed on the outside of the tent,
many of them showing genuine orig-
itiality and careful execution.
Mention should also be made of the
very practical demonstration of the
proper feeding of growing children.
displayed by the Home Economics
Ccmmitte under the efficient super
vision of Miss Dizney. At the same
time bulletins and pamphlets deal
ing with various phases of health
were distributed to those who seemed
interested. The work has Urge pos
sibilities of accomplishing great
good, and it ia hoped and urged that
some more adequate provision may
soon be made for a permanent ex
hibition of this Home side of tha
Fair so that more people may pro
fU by it.
Very dear to the hearts of the
mothers of Berea is their Public
School, and this aummer the club
wtmen have shown their apprecia
tion of it by retinting the interior
walls of the school building, thereby
insuring a greater measure of clean
liness, health and happiness for the
teachers and pupils this coming year.
My Sister, dost know the species
of femenine persuasion belonging to
the human family and generally des
ignated as a cat? Her name is le
gion and her dwelling place the
uttermost parts of the earth. Her
ways are harder and more hateful
than those of the profiteer, for where-
ever she may be, she maketh some

other woman, she cannot resist the
temptation of belittling her in the
eyes of her escort Canst help but
notice when thou art all dolled up in
thy new georgette and a becoming
hat and art out walking with the man,
how she giveth thee the once-over?
Hast thou observed that hard, cold
look in her eyes, that elevating of
eyebrows, that slight downward curve
of her lips?
And thou may not even have a
nodding acquaintance with her. Yet
dcth that uncomfortable feeling be
set thee. Thou wonderest if thy
nose is shiny, whether thy petticoat
ia peeping out beneath the hem of
thy skirt, whether there is any
smudge on thy cheek or thy hat ia on
Yea, in this) way doth the cat
achieve her victory. Yet it ia far
worse when thou knowest the cat,
when she is part and parcel of they
social life, for then she can make
her cattiness even more felt. She it
is who never faileth to tell thee thy
dress is pretty, but or when thou
art busily engaged in trying to in
teiest a young man, she wilt sidle
up to thee and demand an introduc
tion and thereafter monopolize his
attention until thou feeleet that thou
ctuld tear her to pieces.
Thou art by then so nervous, an J
thou beginnest to fidget, and thy
eucort then wondereth what in the
world can be the matter with thee.
Then he bethinketh himself of the
other, and he bemoaneth the fact
that thou art not as self-possessed
But do not worry lest she grab him
cff. For a cat wilt alwaya betray
herself. Tho she may be able to at
tract a man's eyea unto her face and
smiling lips for a little while, tho he
may think her a cute trick, her sina
wilt find her out. Some day she wilt
display her secret, nasty habit of
criticising and sneering at all other
women to him, and he vilt flee as
from a deadly plague.
