PLEASURES OF THE POOR
"TIm pains of poverty," wrote Thom
as De Qulncey, "I had lately aeen too
much of; more than 1 wished to re
member; but the pleaanree of the
poor, their consolations of spirit, and
their repoaee from bodily toll, can
Sever become oppressive to contem
plate." Indeed there are pleasures of
the poor, says the Kaneas City Star
One la not ao sure of the delight of
Vrepooea from bodily toll." That
phrase, as used by De Qulncey, Is
reminiscent of Senator Vest's story of
the little negTo boy who was pounding
hla finger with a hammer and was cry
ing from the pain. "Why do you do
that?" the senator asked him, "Oh,"
be said, "It feels so good when 1 quit."
Put If the toll Is not opprt-sslve. sure
ly the period of rest Is the sweeter
because of It. The pleasures of the
poor Include a love of gocd reading
and leisure for It; appetites for the
best eating In the world, boiled din
ners; childhood, storing memories of
6Wlmmlu' holes and bare feet and cir
cuses and bumble bee fights; the treat
of an occasional good play; the not
miserly exultation at money put by for
a rainy day; the EIfish satisfaction of
self-sacrifice; the romance of youth
where marriage ' of helpmates, "pard
ners." ph, there are pleasure of the
poor and a country whone pioneers
knew them so well, whose newer com
munities kuow them yet so well. miiBt
restore them oy eradicating needless
unlllumlned poverty.
Many persons are worrying. In print
and out of It, lest woman Is "making
a man of herself,' and in her eager
ness to grasp new opportunities Is for
getting her Immemorial privileges.
But there is an equally serious cause
for anxiety in mans indifference to
rertaln of his prerogatives. He seems
to be forgetting the pleasure! that ac
crue to him as a parent. "Pn" is no
longer ' onto his Job." He has turn
ed his responsibilities over to the
Teminine bide of the house, ar.d Is
starving a profound need of his nature
.u so doing. Then has been rather
too much idealization of motherhood
i the expense of fatherhood. Not in
'requectly it is the father rather than
the mother who is able to attain to
the vision of the family as a sacred in
stitution He may be more Intimate
with the children than the mother,
ar.d have depths of understandiiiS and
tendernebj which tihe lacks. But
whether he exceeds her Of not in spir
itual comprehension of his sons and
daughters, should he be shut out c
that inner room and confidence into
which all parents and children should
enter by rlt;bt of community of inter
est? No question about it. the Amer
ican father too often is out in the
cold. Perhaps lie made the blunder In
stepping out there himself, but none
the less it is the business of the wom
en who are wise and the children who
arc dutiful to see that he is brought
back into hear, association with the
others.

London. Another three days' bat
tle In Thrace has ended in tho tri
umph of the Bulgarlm commander In
chief. Gen. Savoff. whose skillful
strategy has probably brought to a
close one of tho ibortOOt and most
remarkable wars on record.
A great Turkish army estimated at
more than 200.000 men, has been de
feated and is in retreat.
Naf lm Pasha, the Turkish minister
of war and commander lu eh! f in
Thrace, has e titer been shot or taken
prisoner, according to a dispatch from
Sofia.
Con.tatitinople is believed to be at
tho mercy of the victorious Bulgarian
army, ant1, t council sittinp at the
Porte is discussing ttie advisability of
suin;: for p;ace.
Such is the news which comes from
Constantinople.
Turks Are Defeated.
It is only a fortnight since Turkey
declared war. The first week of tho
campaign closed with the dramatic
fall of Kirk-Iillsseh. revealing for the
first time tho disorganized and Ineffi
cient commissariat of the Turkish
ary.
Today that army is defeated, routed
within fifty miles of Constantinople
and probably its retreat within the
capital's line of defense is cut off.
Only the briefest and vaguest ac
counts of the great battle have yet
been received ior the war has been
especially remarkable in that nat a
single war correspondent has been al
lowed at the front except in the CASS
of the little Montenegrin campaign
against Scutari.

wing, which he crushed in at Lule

Tlie fighting along the whole front,
which apparently has bee-n of the
most stubborn and dosrritte charac

without intet mission, and both .-ides
lost heavily.
