ON GUARD AT THE READING
It is a fine thlne to guard our homes
against alien soldiers of whose pur
poses we are all aware. But it is
also very important to guard them
against other insidious foes that creep
in under the disguise of friendly en
tertainers to plunder and destroy the
cherished ideals, the lofty standards,
the clear views that have given the
home its character.
If it will familiarize your young,
people with the best reading, they
will not be likely to crave what is
inferior and demoralizing. The
Youth's Companion is a powerful in
fluence in awakening a taste for what
is best in reading. It is on guard at
the reading gate! Nothing cheap,
mean or hateful passes its challenge.
But neither does the crabbed and dull
and austere. Cheery idealism is The
C'ompanion's countersign. Put it on
guard at your reading gate!
The' ('ompanion is $2.00 a year. If
you do not know it, by all means send
for sa:nple copies giving a forecast of
what the next volume will bring. By
adding 2, cents you can also get Mc
Call's Magazine, the best fashion au

LEARNING A NEW JOB.
To many a young man "going to the
wrar" has another meaning than that of
(acing danger, perhaps meeting death.
)Of course, no man really wishes to be
tilled or wounded, but, after all, his fa
ther or his grandfather took the
:lmance, and he would not wish to do
mss than they, says Columbia (S. C.)
State. But it does go hard with many
- lad to face the prospect of giving up
a comfortable living, a place of some
little consequence, perhaps, in his
small world, a berth which he has
won for himself by the sweat of his
I brow or the not less laborious sweat
of Ins brlin. All his store of business
knowledge goes for naught and he
must start over again at an unaccus
tomed trade to carve out a new niche
in whichl he can take his place. There
is something pathetic in this, but there
is ulso much of the Inspiring. For
how many of our young men have done
or will dti just that-nabandon the tasks
they know and like for tasks which
they do not know and which they never
will 1i ,-rn to like? But they do not
grumble at the need. "The serf." as
the old Saxon motto puts it, "has a
warm seat by the fire, while the free
man fart's to the fight." But who of
the y^ung Americans of today would
not rather be the free man in danger
and trouble than a serf in safety?
It is not doctrine that will save the
world. Nearly all of it is man's view
made up of small experience and
varied facts. Truth does not come
that way. It comes through the heart
and not through the head. The neglect
to recognize this idea is what tears
politics, society, religion into shreds.
There are 100 churches in this country
holding different doctrines, and new
ones are constantly and incessantly
springing up. This is because of the
false notion of independence and a de
termination to do one's own thinking.
That is the course which makes men
drift farther apart in religion. The
thing to do to correct this tendency is
to substitute faith for belief. The for
mer is of the heart, the latter of the
mind. One is an attitude, the other an
uncertainty. How can the situation be
improved? Simply by practicing faith
in God and loving one's fellow-crea
tures, says Ohio State Journal. We
talk about church union. This Is the
only way to reach it-forget doctrine
and grow the fruits of the spirit.
One effect of the British conscription
act has been to take many men from
service on Atlantic liners. The execu
tive officers are not disturbed, but fire
men and seamen under forty-one years
of age are likely to be taken for the
army, necessitating the employment of
older men in their places. All the
waiters and bedroom stewards under
the age named are also liable to be
conscripted for the war. Their places
will be supplied in many instances not
by old men, but by young women.
Stewardesses have looked after women
passengers in their cabins for the last
75 years. It is safe to expect a con
siderable increase in the number of
stewardesses and also the employment
of women lastead of men to perform
the service of waiting on table on the
Late statistics show that uneducated

high-school graduates earn on the av

tal of $40,000. This additional edu
cation requires 12 years of schooling
of 180 days each, a total of 2,160 days
of school. If that many days adds
$20,000 to the income of life, then each

WHEN .POISONING WAS ART
None Gained Greater Proficiency Than
Marchionese of Brinvillilere In
The sixteenth and seventeenth cen
turies developed a large number of
persons who brought the crime of pol.
soning to an art. None attained great
er perfection in this than the march
' loness of Brinvilliers. She was the
daughter of Dreux D'Auhray, a high
official in the reign of Louis XIV. In
1651 she was married to the marquis
of Brinvilliers. heir to an enormous
fortune. She herself brought a consid
She was a woman of prepossessing
appearance and great charm. She lived
happily with her husband until one
Sieur Godin, commonly known as St.
Croix. was introduced into the family.
The marquis took a great liking to
him, and St. Croix made his home with
the aristocratic couple. The march
ioness soon fell in love with the ad
venturer. De Brlnvilliers had St. Croix
imprisoned in the Bastille. Ii"re the
latter met an Italian who was an adept
in poisons, and he taught St. Croix his
arts. When the latter was released,
after a year's confinement, he resumed
his acquaintance with the mmarhioness,
but more cautiously. The Italian came
out of prison and entered the services
of the pair. They at once entered into
schemes to poison the woman's father,
her two brothers and her sister, so as
to get possession of the family fortune.
They succeeded in all cases except
that of the sister. Yet they escaped
suspicion and would have gone free
had it not been for an accident. While
mixing poisons the mask worn by St.
Croix fell from his face and he was
suffocated by the poisons he was pre
paring for others. Then the whole
dark tale was unfolded and all were
condemned to death.
HOME OF EMPRESS JOSEPHINE
Fort de France on Island of Marti,
nique Interesting as Birthplace of
Napoleon's First Wife.
The little town of Fort de France on
the island of Martinique in the French
West Indies is of the greatest lanter
est to travelers, because it was the
early home of Empress Josephine, the
first wife of Napoleon. She was the
daughter of a French army officer who
lived on a large estate about five miles
from the town. Here Josephine was
born in 17603 and here she lived until
she was married to her first husband.
Beauharnaise, when she was sixteen
The future empress seems to have
had much education and to have lived
the simple life on a West Indian plan
tation. The site of her birthplace is
still known and it is delightfully situ
ated in a grove of trees near the banks
of a small river. A certain pool in
this stream is still known as the bath
of the empress. and here the creole
beauty, according to local tradition, al
ways took her morning plunge.
After her separation from Beauhar
nalse Josephine returned to Marti
nique and to the quiet life of the little
Ssland. Passages from her diary at
that time show that she was very fond
of her rambles in the woods and of the
quaint, easy social life of the place.
She passed three years there with her
little daughter before returning to
France to become the wife of a world
conqueror and one of the most famous
beauties of Europe.
A statue of the empress has been
erected in the square at Fort de
France. It conveys a chapming im
pression of the woman who for a time
ruled the man of destiny and of whom
"he said that she was a mistress of thei

Finds Volcano is Hottest at Top.
Notwithstanding what the old text
books say, it now appears that a vol
cano is hottest on its surface. This is
the conclusion drawn by a scientist
who has made extensive investigaptions
in craters In Hawaii and has obtained
samples of gases and lava before they
reached the air. Laboratory studles
of these samples make It appear that
much of the heat required to keep an
open lava bast in in fluid condition is
supplied by the chemical asetion of the
gases. From these investigations the
scientist concludes that in times of
great activity the temperature at the
surface of a volcano undoubtedly is
higher than that below the surface.
PreMstorlo Japanese Canoe.
Workmen engaged in the dry rives
bed of the Nmmasue-gawa, Osaka pre

made of camphor wood. It has not yet
been completely uncovered, but the

Sfeet In length, 6 feet in width and 26
inches in depth. There are traces of
the canoe having been colored blue.
