Washington, Dec. t.?Unofficial re?
ports announcing that the Zelayan
forces have been victorious at Bama
have been received here and fore?
shadow serloue consequences, as Ze
laya's success woul6 doubtless mean
sharp resistance to the United States
brae-Jackets and marines when th v
land on Nlcaraguau soil. Although
the United States Is ready to take any
aetloa deemed necessary egalnst Ze?
laya, It aas been hoped that the Es
ttrada forces would make the task
easy by cent!sued successes.
Rams Is now recognised as a cru?
cial point tn the struggle for supre?
macy between Zelaya and General
Estrada. If Zelaya defeats the revo?
lutionary forces hers, it will mean
that he again takes the upper hand,
and this means trouble for the insur?
gents and all who side with them.
It Is hoped at the 8tate department
that the rumors of Zelaya's success
at Rama are not well founded. In
the meantime the Navy department's
rlan of concentrating forces on both
Mraraguan coasts Is being carried
out With regularity.

with his enemies in his own country
and with the rulers of the other Cen?

am sorry to say, some clergymen?
auffer from professional jealousy.
They are pained by hearing others In
their profession praised. This Jeal?
ousy is perhaps more characteristic
of professional people generally than
of business people.
I know a clergyman who would be
very popular and successful if he
were only large enough to see the
good In his brother clergymen, but
he is not. He is always emphasizing
their faults and weaknesses, especial?
ly those of men who are gaining in
popularity. If any one praises an
other clergyman, "Yes," he will eay,
"he Is a pretty good man, but he is
not always absolutely accurate, re?
liable, in his statements"; or, "He is
very free in his use of other preach?
ers' sermons; he is a great borrower
of ideas"; or he will make some oth?
er nasty, belittling remark.

Oliver Wendell Holmes compared a
man to a living omnibus in which he
carries all his ancestors. Most of us
are copies of those who have gone
before us. We take up into our lives
their traits and characteristics. We
are hampered by their faults, helped
by their virtues. Our progress is ac?
celerated or handicapped by what we
have received from our ancestors.??
