Who told the truth?
They met in the subway one morn
ing, a young mother and a young pro
fessional woman. They had boon
friends at school, but 'aeons had' pass
ed, and now, after some ten years,
they began to discuss their present
Jobs of hiotherhood and journalism.
However, journalism seemed to fill
most of the time, and motherhood was
dismissed after a few desultory ques
tions about "Billy," whose fame con
sisted In being seven years old and
Just entering school.
"Oh, tell me about your work," said
"There is quite a bit to tell of it,"
said the egotistical woman of busi
ness, and immediately launched upon
the joys, woes, disadvantages ana ad
vantages of the business woman's career.
My! But that is most interesting,"
said the mother, whose eyes wore
popping out of her head at the mere
mention of the famous persons the
journalist knew. "I certainly shall
buy your magazine and read HI"
'Grand Central Station!" mumbled
"Goodby," said the mother. "Your
life is certainly worth while."
"Goodby," replied the Journalist;
not nearly as much worth while as

OLDEST OF EARTH'S CITIES
Damascus as Full of Life Today as
She Was In the Dawning of the
At last we are set down in the
midst of Damascus, a city that can
claim life without a break from its
founding back in the dim dawn of
the world's history. When Abram
crossed the desert from Haran 4,000
years ago this city was standing. (See
Gen. 14:15 and 15:2.) She dates back
to the time of the Pharaohs in Egypt;
in fact, she was old when Greece and
Rome were striplings in years. Rome
may be termed the "Eternal City,'
but Damascus is twice as old, and
though her streets have run red with
blood of battle and rapine many
times, she has not been overthrown.
"Babylon is an heap in the desert
and Tyre a ruin on the shore," but
Was there ever such a place to see
the nations of the earth parading to
gether? Here in the market place ara
motley crowds of Persians, Moors,
Afghans, Indians, Egyptians, Sudan'
ese, Jews, Bedouins, Druses, Turks,
Europeans. The streets so crooked.
so narrow, so dirty, so full of life,
with that strange spell of the desert
upon them! The residences as seen
from the street are ugly and disap
pointing enough, yet, like old barns
and tumble-down mills at home, are
fascinating and picturesque. Chris
"No, Maria," said Mr. Con Soomus,
'7 will not help you wash the dishes.
That is the business of the mistress of
the home, while mine Is to provide the
means of subsistence. I must with
