Usually in a fishing party there is
one man who persists in quoting Izaak
Walton aloud and often , and thus

In the peasant huts of Europe ,
mothers are putting the babies to sleep

When last heard from King Pete was

Hawaii has a pressing "labor prob

how to make people work In a climate
which produces food in such abun

Every American politician must
secretly thank his stars that he was
not born In England , where office
holders are expected to resign when
they are criticised by the public. With
such sensitiveness to public opinion it

patriots who serve their country to
amass even a moderate competence.
A business woman who has a large

English bacteriologists have taken a

contained more than twenty-five thou

"The number of criminals is on the
increase , and the number of heinous
offenses grows less as civilization ad
vances , " said a New York criminals
lawyer the other day. "This may seem
paradoxical , but it Is easily explained.
New laws are continually being made
constituting new crimes , and while the
number of violations of the law grows
larger , th number of atrocious crimes
diminishes. If you will consult the
criminal statistics you Trill see that the
increase is almost entirely In the nevr
and lighter offenses. "
In the International egg laying com
petition In Australia the American hen
laid all around the effete biddies of
Australia , throwing a perfect shower
of eggs , while the Australian hens
were spitting on their wings and an

and sturdlness of shell , the American
egg carried off the palm , the Yankee
hens winning first , second and fourth

ladles had done , the American roosters
all went out and had a little rve.

of the alleged accident , in which the
plaintiff was shown in the act of carry

Literary workers as well as mechan
ics seem to be enjoying the era of
prosperity. Recent sucecssive num :
bers of the London Athenaeum contain
two unusual advertisements. The first ,
addressed "To Authors , " says that If
the -writer of a historical novel , with
out title , author's name or address , sent
some weeks ago in a red box , will
communicate with the publisher , he
will hear of something to his advan
tage. The other advertisement Is ad
dressed "To Poets , " and announces
a check for fifty pounds is waiting for
the unknown author of a poem which
was lately published. It will be in
teresting to see how many authors will
claim tn * novel and how many poets
the check. And what becomes of the
old belief that only authors with reput-
tntion and Influence succeed in getting
a hearing ?
People may find it hard to believt
' when surrounded with every luzury ,
that the money in the bank may some
day suddenly melt away like a snow
drift in the spring sun. But it hap
pens so sometimes. And poverty is
most unkind to those who have onc&
known opulence. Ten years ago Jas B.
Ledydon was one of the wealthy men ,
of Boston. He was a broker , rated at
least-a half million. But the panic of
' 88 cleaned him out and left him pen-
nileaB and broken in spirit. His abili
ties eem to have been atrophied , for
he never got up in finance again. The
other day he was arrested in New
York for permitting his children to
peddle on the streets. For two years
he had been living in a small miserable
room , supported wholly by his two
daughters , aged 11 and 5 , who sold per
fumery. A 13-year-old-boy is in the
juvenile asylum. Now , broken hearted
and disgraced , the once rich man lies
in prison , separated from his children
and charged with violating a city ordi
nance. It is a pathetic but significant
rebuke to the insolence of wealth.
People are apt to entertain the idea
that if they can only get rich they are
fixed for this world , if not for the next.
Usually , a man who loves money well
enough to accumulate a big fortune
loves It well enough to cling to it. But
not always as this case and many an
other testify. Money is a nice thing to
have , but It is not a safe thing to
fasten one's life ambition upon or to
pin all of one's hopes to.
While they are talking in BostOL
about the length of- the college course ,
consider one thing : Why is it that
civilized man arrives at maturity so
much later than the savage ? An Athka
Aleut is an independent hunter , and
perhaps a married man. at 10. A Tahitian -
tian sets up a aort of group life with
other Tahltians of his own age when
he Is 8 or 9. A Khursur in the Caucasus
begins a civic and military life In his
ninth or tenth yenr. Meanwhile , what
Is happening to the civilized child ? He
is still a child. He is .slowly gathering
up In himself the inherited experience
of a long line of civilized ancestors. He
cannot arrive at maturity so early as
the savage because he has so much
more to learn. The accumulated ex
perience of his race cannot be acquired
by him In the first decade of his life.l
He is fortunate if he has acquired it , .
or any appreciable part of it , at the j
end of three decades. It is this "pro
longation of infancy" that gave John
Fiske so much material for study and
discussion. Without such a prolongaai
tun , said Fiske , the human race conll
never have reached its present position.
As the human heritage of clvilition
becomes greater and greater the period
which the human child must spend in
assimilating this heritage will become
longer and longer , and human infancy
will stretch farther and farther toward
middle age. Listen , therefore , to Pres
ident Harper at the convention of the
National Educational association when
he speaks about a two year college
course Listen to President Eliot when
he speaks about a three year course.
Listen to President Butler when he ,
spenks about a dovetailed liberal plus
a professional course. These educators
are not only exposing the tumultuous ,
weltering chaos of modern educational
thought ; they are also drawing atten
tion to one of the greatest problems of
modern society. How shall the modern
prolongation of Infancy , which keepa
a man in college till he is 25 and defers
his marriage till he la 30 , be prevented
from becoming too great a burden and
exasperation both to society and to the
man hims lf. On the one side there Is
tn obvious fact that long courses of
study are necessary for the acquisition
and assimilation of all the scientific ,
political , social , and ethical elements of
modern life. On the other side stands
the equally obvious fact that a man
may be kept so long at his studies that >
before he has begun really to live he is
past his physical anl psychical prime.
How are these two facts to be recon
ciled ?

American idea that a live man is a w

THE FEVKR OP LIFE.
By Rev. Percy Olton , D. D.
"And He came and took her by the
hand and lifted her up and immediate
ly the fever left her and she rainis-
iered unto them. " St. Mark I. , 31.
There are few who will deny the
/act / that life in the great centers of
Jidustry is for the majority ten times
more of a burden than anything else ,
ind this not from lack of the neces-
laries of life , but from the strain and
tension which must be 'undergone to
lecure the means of subsistence. It
! s not that the number of hours of
: he day's labor has increased , but that
.he amount of work per hour is great
er. The facilities for lessening the
Irudgery of work have made a great-
jr demand upon the attention and ,
Ikill in producing the work.
Every faculty must be trained and
ilert If the intricate and delicately ad
justed machine is to be kept running
linoothly ; every nerve must be on ten-
lion lest there be failure to supply
the never-ceasing demands of the ra
pacious monster that throbs and pants
ind flies around in one ceaseless
ivhirl. Work is done at high pres-
ure. It is compressed. It is intense.
It has been relieved of wearisome de
tail , and only the essence of labor is
( eft.
eft.Thus
Thus It happens that , while labor Islet
lot so exacting as regards time , it
ieinands far more concentration. The
oulk has been reduced , but the con
tents have been Increased. This is
true , also of other departments of our
aiodern life. Education has become
a test of the ability to store up the
most information in the least possible
.
time.
And so it is with the social life of
the present age. The question of
pleasure 1 l has become absorbing. The
thing Is no longer a means to an end ;
it has become the end itself. People
live for pleasure. They exhaust ev
ery energy in the pursuit of pleasure.
Society has become more and more
artificial. Simplicity and informality
are two words not to be found in the
dictionary of modern society. The life
of the present generation is more
complex , more exacting , more intense
than of any former age. Our civiliza
tion has developed a malady hitherto
unknown , and no better term can be
found to describe it than to call it the
fever of life.
Now , where shall we find the rem
edy ? Certainly not out of the condi
tions that have produced the disease.
There is no indication from the state
of things that the remedy for the sickness -
ness will be found in the life of which
It has become a part , and it is useless
to expect that the trouble will dis
appear of itself. On the contrary , it
seems to be taking firmer hold.
"Tha strenuous life" is a phrase
with which we are all now familiar ,
and which we all admit is a true de
scription of the present way of exist
ing.
ing.The
The question of the hour Is , "What
can be done to euro this disease this
fever of life which threatens to con
sume the vitality of the present gen
eration ? Christianity points to the
only One who has the power to per
form the miracle of healing , and that
One is the Great Physician , our Lord
ind Savior , Jesus Christ. The Mas
ter of Life is here to tell us the secret
f living. He has come to show men
bow to live.
Oh , that those who call themselves
His witnesses and messengers would
lay stress on this truth that Jesus
Christ has come to teach men how to
live. He has come to restore the
world to health , to free it of the bond
age of death , to cure it of all its sins ,
its ! spiritual sickness.
The world to-day lies sick of a fe-
rer. It will never enter into full per
fection of its life until it looks to Je
sus , Avho has come to give it life. lie
waiting to put His cooling , life-giv-
ng touch on the fever-tossed sufferer
and ] to give it strength.to rise up and
perform its task. Both by teaching
find example He has given mankind
the : example of the perfect life. Just
proportion as the world accepts this
standard will it receive the more abun
dant life which is its Inheritance.
Jesus is the interpreter of life. He
holds the secret of the life which is ,
well as the life which is to come.
We don't know how to live , and wo
will go on blundering and wearing
ourselves out until we take Him as
our exemplar. The fever of life is the
result of our experiment with the
things that ought to make for our
happiness. Somehow we cannot get
the right proportion , and instead of
receiving joy and peace and a larger
life from our use of the mixture , we
find ourselves weak and feverish and
sick at heart
Let us go to Him and take His life
for our example. Let us note what
things : He counted precious and what
things He rejected as harmful to the
soul. Let us accept Him as the way
and the truth and the life , and He
will enter the room in which we are
now lying sick of the fever of life
and He will take us by the hand and
*
lift us up and fill us with .new life
for service to His glory and salvation
of our fellow men.
PROBLiEM OP PROPORTIONS.
By Jenhln Lloyd Jones.
Civilization has use for the money
maker. The shop and the ship and
the railroad train are all permanent
and lasting features in the elevation
and development of man , but they ara
only instruments and not the end. The
eye cleared of the fogs of selfishness
that penetrates through the mists of
passing and transient forces has a
right to ask of us , What do you do it/ /
for and how do you do it ? In th
perspectives of life the words "pros-
perity" and "success" are words of no
significance. They condemn perhaps
more often than they commend. A. C.
Hams worth , the proprietor of the London -
don Daily Mail and thirty other pa
pers and magazines , is reported to
have said : "As to the word 'success , '
I detest it. The more I see of success
the better I like failure. How many
earnest , brave men one meets , men of
splendid head and heart , who lack the
small combination of fortune or wits
that brings monej- and reputation.
What people call success is a poor
standard by which to judge a man.
Taken as a whole , successful men are-
persons to keep clear of. Opportunity
largely makes the man , and the poor
creature should remember that. "
It might be added that the oppor
tunity which brings the so-called suc
cesses of life oftentimes contains as
one factor a dull conscience , that is
saved from nice discriminations of
duty ; a cold heart , not susceptible to
the holy agonies and divine sympathies - -
thies that most humanize the human1
soul. The true perspective of the
business man puts the final test bej
yond the banker's footing , beyond his
bonds and his real estate. Sooner or
later , in health or in sickness , in joy
or in sorrow , in triumph or defeat , in
time or eternity , the business man's
money will be put into this longer per
spective of God , and will be judged *
not only by the motive and the method - *
od by which it was acquired , but by ;
th i end to which it was devoted and' '
the condition in which the fortune
leaves the fortune-maker.
The same delusion goes with the
word "prosperity" as with the word
"success. " Is he prosperous who
starves his heart in order to feed his
stomach ? Is he prosperous who loses
Ilia sleep in order to find his business ?
Is he prosperous who is impaled upon
the financial spit , suffering daily a\ \
iiMirtyrdom like St. Lawrence on his'
Tidiron ? Is he prosperous who , grown
ing ] weary of the ever-changing miracle - ;
cle of dawn and darkness , of summer
and winter in his own land , tries to $
hide himself from his weariness in !
foreign lands , and there finds that }
what was not beautiful at home canj
not ] be beautiful long abroad ? He is
prosperous ] whose soul Is forehanded.
He is prosperous whose life is linked
to lasting interests , whose heart is an
chored in permanent joyg and grow
ing inspirations. He alone is prosper
ous ( whose healthy body is a cradle tea
a healthy mind , whose diligent handj
is open to the best causes , who never
( hesitates between the lower and the )
higher issues , who first pays for these )
things that have first claim upon his
life , who lives here as in the constant a
atmosphere of heaven.

RELIGIOUS IDEALS OF TODAY.
Ky Key. Wllsoa M. BackHt. s
It Is as ignorance gives way to
knowledge and fear becomes k > v that ;
religion becomes expressed In higher
terms until it reaches the highestpoint
the educated man of to-day knows
which is faith In a moral government r
of the universe. The man who is pos
sessed of this faith knows no fear , he
freely and boldly does that which his
hand finds to do , never questioning but
what it will be well with him in the )
end.
But this progress means n constant
change in the elements of belief , a fj
shifting from -lower to higher ideals :
Men have never laid aside the great tl
problems of life. We preachers some tltl
times feel that because men have in < i tl :
measure deserted the church that they ;
have also deserted their religion ,
but it is because we do not un tlu
derstand. Men feel to-day that re u
ligion is human helpfulness and be
cause they have mistaken the effect IT
for the cause it docs not impugn theii
honesty. a

The difference as a religion betweenBI
>
heathenism and Christianity is the hu
man element of Christianity. The ,
words of John , "he who loveth not his
brother whom he hath seen , how can
lie love God , whom he hath not seen/ ' , .
have gradually won upon the Chris
tian conscience until to-day they anl
dominant. The result is that charity !
and brotherly love prevail to a greatei' '
degree than ever before. It may be ;
that in the process personal righteousness -
ness has become less , but the next step
in progress is for men to see that any
form of evil , even of the most personal
nature , is an offense against human

During the past several months the
editor of this department has received
many communications from dairymen
say in * . In substance , that the oleo lavr ,
is in force , did not seem to I inrov
matters much , so far as dairy interests
were concerned. Investigation showt-
that this is tru and also disclose
the reasons why. Th law as it now
appears on the statutes provides that
if oleo is artificially colored so as U
represent butter tha manufacturei
shall pay a tax of 10 cents a pound
on his output. If not colored artifi
cially ( note the word artificially ) , then
the tax shall be # of a cent a pound.
Manufacturers have shrewdly found
a way around the law by using in
gredients which give the product s *
cream color sufficiently like butter ,
especially during the winter , to past-
readily for the genuine article. It i
an open question whether or no th <
ingredients used to obtain this color
make the product more desirable as a
food. The main fact is that no arti
ficial coloring is used and hence the
spirit of the law is nullified. The onlj.
apparent way out of tha difficulty
would seem to be to amend the laiv
so that It would be a misdemeanor foK
oleo to be colored in any way so that
it approached the color of butter. It it-
to be regretted that the amendment
proposed when the bill was under dis
cussion. namely , that oleo be colored'
some shade that would absolutely
identify it , could not have been passed.
The matter as It no-vr stands is a seri
ous one for dairymen and they shoultf
get in communication with their Con
gressmen so that soin way may he-
found of properly and thoroughly pro
tecting dairy interests.
