MATTER FOR SOME THOUGHT
Decidedly One of These Two Had the
Wrong Impression, but Where la
Expert That Can Decide?
Who told the truth?
They met In the subway one morn
ing, a young mother and a young pro
fessional woman. They had been
friends at school, but aeons had pass
ed, and now, after oomo ten years,
they began to discuss their present
Jobs of motherhood and Journalism.
However, Journalism seemed to fill
most of tho time, and motherhood was
dismissed after a few desultory ques
tions about "Billy," whoso famo con
sisted In being seven years old and
Just entering school.
"Oh, tell me about your work," said
"Thero is quite a bit to tell of It,'1
said tho egotistical woman of busi
ness, and Immediately launched upon
the Joys, woes, disadvantages and ad
vantages of tho business woman's ca
reer. "My! But that Is most Interesting,"
said the mother, whoso eyes were
popping out of her head at the mere
I mention of the famous persons the
i Journalist knew. "I certainly shall
i buy your magazine and read It!"
"Grand' Central Station!" mumbled
"Goodby," said the mother. "Tour
life Is certainly worth while."
"Goodby," replied tho Journalist;
"not nearly as much worth while as

Damascus as Full of Life Today as
She Was In the Dawning of the
At last we are set down in tho
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 Abrara
crossed the desert from Haran 4,000
years ago this city was standing. (Seo
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 tho "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 b'een overthrown.
"Babylon Is an heap in the desert
and Tyre a ruin on the Bhore," but
Damascus remains. "
Was there ever such a place to see
the nations of the earth parading to
gether? Here in the market place are
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,
T will not help you wash the dishes.
That is the business of tho mistress of
the home, while mine la to provide the
means of subsistence. I must with
draw from all interlocking directorates
public sentiment Is against that sort
