Fearful Murder Record.
The murder record of the United
States beats that of all other coun
tries in the world. That is an awful
statement to make, but it is more
awful to be compelled to admit that
it is true. Some people can't under
stand why Canada shrinks from link
ing her fortunes with this country,
but if they will s*udy the criminal
records of the two countries they will
understand all about it.
According to the Nashville Tenne
sean more persons have been mur
dered in the United States within the
last twenty years than were killed on
the Federal side of the War Be
tween the Sections. - Tight or nine
persons out of every ten thousand
are'murdered annually in the United
States, or nearly one person to every
"S. S. McClure, the magazine edi
tor, is authority for these figures.
The murder rate in this country Is
ten times that of England and Ire
land and fifteen times the rate in
Canada. Why should the Northern
neighbor of the United States have
so much better record than this coun
try The answer is simple. It en
forces the law.
When Canadian towns vote liquor
out, It goes out, and the watchful
mounted police make the lire or law
violators miserable. When a man
kills another in Canada he Is In
stantly arrested and promptly pun
ished regardless of his social position
or political affiliations. Rich and
poor, high and low, respect and fear
the law alike in Canada, and that
typical Anglo-Saxon attitude toward
constituted authority Insures the
safety of human life.
Do we wonder that Canada should
object so strenuously to becoming a
part of our nation? ' And aleo Is not
our record sufficient to cause a
blush? How is It in South Carolina?
We are sorry to say that our States
contributes her^ full quota to the
awful murder record of tne coun
try, and the wholesale pardoning of
criminals by Governor Blease Is en
couraging the carnival of blood. Let
it be understood that sure punish
ment awaits the crime, and we will
have fewer murders in this and all
the other States.
Look After the Boys.
In commenting on the great re
ligious crusade that is now being
carried on in nearly all the large
cities of the country under the au
spices of the "Men and Religion
Forward Movement," the Cedar Ra
pids Gazette says there are several
hundred fathers in its city who would
do well to get In touch with one
phase of the movement. That phase,
says the Gazette, is the question of
dealing with boys.
Fewer boys would get into mis
chief, and fewer of them would later
give officers of the law serious trou
ble If more attention were paid to
them in their character-forming
years. The Men and Religion For
ward Movement as expressed by the
leaders of boys' work, does not con
template suppression or even serious
repression of the boy. It recognizes
that the boy is a human being, that
he is brimful of animal life, that he
likes certain sports.
The average boy likes activity; he
Is happy when he is out of doors giv
ing vent to the spirit with which he
has been endowed by the Creator.
Ir" the boy's mind and Impulses are
directed aright, the boy is not going
wrong. It is when boys are left to
their own devices that so many of
them go to the devil. The boy is
easily trained if he is taken in time,
and the trainers keep on the job as
they should. The responsibility for
the failure rests largely upon pa
If the Men and Religion Forward
Movement does nothing else than im
press upon parents their responsibili
ties and show them how to handle
boys it will have accomplished won
ders. That it will do this, If parents
will take hold of it, and help make
it a success, we have no doubt. The
greatest duty ever imposed upon a
man is the bringing up of the boys
that God has committed to his care.
How careful and diligent he should
be in discharging it.
Settling Labor Troubles.
In Great Britain where the labor
problem of late has been unusually
trying there is a casting about for
some effective method of preventing
and settling disputes between em
ployers and men.
Much hope is expressed that the In
dustrial Council recently organized
by the government may bring about
greatly Improved relations. The
council consists of twenty-six mem
bers, besides the chairman who Is the
Comptroller General of the Labor
Department of the Board of Trade.
Of the twenty-six members one-half
me chosen by the employers and one
half by the wage earners, and the
men selected by both parties rank
high for their personal worth and
qualifications. While the Council
has no compulsory powers Its moral
Influence will be great, as It Is em
powered, on request, to take suitable
action In disputes affecting the prin
cipal trades of the country which
the parties themselves are unable to
settle. It Is to be hoped that the
council may realize the expectations
formed. Certainly its operation will
be sympathetically watched in this
country where disputes between labor
and capital are eo frequent, costly
Getting Ready for Christmas.
Getting ready for Christmas makes
these weeks in December full of
pleasant labors and anticipations.
The majority of people are not mil
lionaires. They do not have full
purses with which they can go to
the shops and buy their Christmas
presents, without regard to cost.
They have a little money and It re
quires a good deal of planning, of
invention and loving thcight, to
make It go around. O'Jen times
the money is only enough to buy
the raw materials, from which p.itl
end and skillful fingers will fashion
the gifts. If we could look Into
many a home we should see the chil-1
dren planning some surprise on1
Christmas morniag for fathers and
mothers, and the parents In turn
consulting how to manage to give
the boys and girls what tney want.
It is this mutual though<:fulness for
others that imparts to these Decem
ber days a peculiar atmosphere. It
will soften the heart of the crustiest
old bachelor to go into the Christ
mas shops and overhear the consul
tations among purchase? as to what
they shall get.
Christmas Belongs to Children.
Christmas most truly oeiongs to
the children. It celebrates the event
of the Christ child, lo whom the
wise men brought gifts, and the shep
herds came and worshipped. Would
that every child in this land of
abundance might receive the little
portion necessary to fill the heart
with joy and chase the sobs and
tears away. Ic takes so little to
open the founts of joy or a child, it
would seem so small a portion might
fall to the lot of every child. But
alas, some will be burdened with
gifts till they weary In counting
them and others?what a disap
pointed Christmas it will be to them.
Cannot we be thoughtful one of an
other and share our blessings with
those less favored and thus make
our Christmas, more truly happy for
ourselves and merry for many others.
Good Place to Be Born.
Charle3 Dudley Warner has said
"that everybody ought to be born in
a little red farm house with a stone
wall around It." Now we don't be
lieve it makes any difference whether
or not that farm house has a stone
wall around it, or whether its color
be red of white or green, but we do
say that the hoy born on the farm
is born in the realm of opportunity.
Josiah Strong also sail that "Were
he to be born again, and were Provi
dence to permit him the choice of a
place of birth, he would say, By all
means, let it be on a farm. More op
portunities offer themselves to the
young people on the farm than to
any other class of young people. Our
city cousins may laugh at us, but let
them laugh; it is only because they
