cans against "the danger of race an- !
tipathy flaming into hatred" and I
against "unconsecrate-J prosperity,
^hich. is bound to cause manhood to
decay," the pastoral letter of the
Protestant Episcopal Church was read
at the final joint session of the men*

The letter is the message of the 19S |
i bishops of the church to its comrauL
nicants, and under the chudch law,
| wHI be read in every Episcopalian
church in the country.
Unlike most previous pastoral letters,
it dealt with sec.iiAr rather than
ecclesiastical affairs. It reviewed conditions
in the United States, in Europe
and in the Orient and pointed out to
this country the threat that lies in a
nationalism which assumes the ugly
role of group selfishness or false patriotism."
"Whatever dangers may .to lurlnng
beyond our western horizon,"' it asserted,
"can surely be averted by a
spirit of justice, woien lias not always
prevailed in our dealings with the
Members of the church were admonished
to "sanctify their yealth by
offering freely of their substf e to^
God's cause," it being added it" .he'
wounds of Armenia, Poland aud Belgium
still lie gaping to the sky ana
offer their dum-b appeal to God and
man," The letter in part follows:
"America is involved today in worldwide
confusion which finds its most
acute expression in the battle-fields of
Europe. No self-isolation on our pari

''Interest never can again be sectional.
The world is henceforth one,
for the time being in a disturbed and
suffering unity, in days to come in a
unity where order and health will
reign. Political expediency may in
war time require neutrality' of tne
L state, but it cannot hold in leash the
^sympathies of the individual citizen.
Ia man cannot be passionless and re
tain his manhood.
m Searching Responsibility.
"The fact that our nation is not at
war affords no grounds for smugness.
It throws upon ue the searcmng responsibility
of exalting the true ideals
of peace and incoporating them in
our national life. Nationalism, too of^
ten assumes the ugly role of group
selfishness or false patriotism. Local
conditions determine what form this
disease will take. Yonder it breaks

How to 8tay In Office.
Tlie Newberry Herald and News, in
discussing, some recent political contests
in this state, says:
"The people, however, do not always
elect the men who do things. On
the contrary they are generally the
ones wlio are not elected. The way to
remain in office is to do nothing except
what you have to do and draw

The Newberry paper hits the nail
squarely on the head. All of us have
known cases in which a man in office
who served the people faithfully and
efficiently has been defeated without
1 cause when he came up for re-election
and we have known cases in "whlcfe
the man who did nothing at all has
been kept in office indefinitely. This
Is a common thing, as we say, but it
must be disheartening to those who
get office and try to be conscientious
in the discharge of their duties.?Aa!
