Baptist church, and an enthusiastic
worker in the Sabbath school. His
splendid work helped make tho Bar
aca class one of the strongest in tho
church. He spared no effort to get
young men into living "tho life worth
while." Such a noble consecrated
character the woijld can not well
spare. Six weeks ago the father pass

AN EXAMPLE TO OTHERS
But Governor Harmon Is making history. There have been few
governors In the United States within this generation who would
not dodge the responsibility of ordering out the troops in a labor
dispute, even when aid was asked for, and the governor who would
promptly assume of his own motion all the responsibility is not
readily called to mind.
If we have lawlessness and anarchy In America it is because
Americans have the lawless spirit which is shared by the mayors
and other officials. A few governors In the background like Harmon
would readily bring the people to their senses. Philadelphia
