TJE PHILOSOPHY OF
THE PRESENT WBR.
The poise of our Constitution, our
geographical situation, our perfect free!
dom from internal discord, have well3
nigh dissipated our keener conception
of war. "Rumors of war," of hostile,
ferocious and devastating armies; the
suffering and destitution of defeating
forces aud their innocent and helpless
dependents, have afforded us much
mat-rial for newspaper articles and
employment for our artists. Indeed,
our lachrymals have been kept in
healthful exercise the meanwhile. Our
military has been the joke of the nation
well-nigh all nations. What could
money-getting pig-heads do? That has
been our military standing with the
world. Attack Germany on the French
frontier. Let the courier report to Von
Moltke. He merely runs his hand in a
pigeon-hole, draws'a package ot papers
marked "French Frontier," and says,
"Forward the armv." Blow up an
American ship, send hundreds of our
braves into eternity, murder our sub
jects in cold blood, carry on a species
of barbarism at our door, and so Chris,
tian are we and so peace-loving, that it
is only at the end of the most ex
haustive diplomatic negotiations that
we declare the affront of the enemy in
tolerable. We looked upon war with
too great an indifference and had too
little sympathy with those unfortunate
countries recently cursed by it. Out
side of the few of us who recall the hor
rors of the early sixties, lit'le or no
sympathy has been felt for our warring
neighbors over the seas. Real war can
never be seen in our show-windows.
Battles, blood, vacant chairs, fatherless
ones, widow ed hearts, desolate homes
even these but poorly tell. If we are
humane, we can not contemplate this
ranid. blood r. carnal extinction of
friend and foe without concern. The
share our nature, our hopes, our fond
ness for life, and yet are swept pre
maturely to their graves some on land,
others on sea. Kvery death pierces the
heart of some father, mother, brother,
sister, wife, or child. When war paints
hell on the sky, death holds high car
nival. Whether it was Herodotus or
Homes who gave forth the sentiment I
am not sure, but it i fearfully true that
"in peace children bury their parents;
In war, parents bury their children."
There is tranquility in the sorrow of
the former; despair in the bereavement
of the Utter. "Rachel weeping for her
children, and refusing to be comforted,
because thev are not" The lot of those
who are slain is ofteu far preferable to
thatof those who remain. To be left
wounded upon the battle-field to die
without food, nursing, love orsympathy,
is bad; no pity, wounds exposed to
scorching sun, trampled underfoot by
the chargers ot an enemy, ana lnsuimu,
even eur.ed by an enraged foe; no ten
der voice of wife, or sister, or mother,
is enough to make us shudder. A lost
or forgotten grave on Cuban soil, or
among the far-away Philippines, un
noticed and unknown, how sad! And
yet, whatshall I say of those who re
main? Remain to five a life of despair!
Old age bereft of the props expected in
the days gone by. An old age ever
sighing in vain for the return of the
brave soldier boy, and pathetically ex
claiming: "Oh, for the touch of a vanishd haned,
And the sound of a voice that is still."
Hanging jewels and wreathing dow
ers on the next holiest shrine known to
earth a mother's love for her bov.
The agony of the boy was short. The
agony of mother runs through years
ears saddened by the inlirmit.v, lone
liness and helplessness of disappointed
old age. That is war on the home hide.
Of our country I may speak. Whence
come wars ana lighting among you?"
asked St. James. He answers his own
question by asking another: "Come
iney not from your lusts that war in
your members?" I hope not. For our
own country I speak. Guilt lies not at
our door. We are net actuated by greed
for gold, or ground. We are plethoric.
If our Christian civilization can not
hear the beastly baibarism of that little
isle of misery, and offers hei blood in
open battlelield for the blood of helpless
liiuocency, it is well. Jesus taught us
that lesson, and more. But if it betrays
us into a spirit of conquest, then shades
of Monroe, and "Angels, and ministers
of grace, defend us." Compensation in-'
uemniiy is right; conquest wrong.
Shelling villages, demolishing castles,
burning the cottages of plebes and peas
ants, even streets drenched in blood,
may be condoned by the breaking of
the shackles of bondage, reign o' terror,
and famine, and running warfare of
seemingly interminable length, and
setting an enslaved, suffering and help
less island free the greatest good com
ing to their present and succeeding gen
erations. To stain the plumage of a war
waged for such a holy purpose with
even a thought of conquest, would smell
to heaven, our precious boys are gone!
We already miss them much! They
may fall; they may not. God kuoweth.
Their blood is priceless to us. Set no
price upon it. one drop is worth more
to a mother's aching heart, or a nation
worthy of it, than all the wealth of con
tinents. As the last drop would be slit d
for the maintenance of the integrity of
our own, so let not one be shed tor the
conquest of the native sou ol another.
L"t our boys teach Spain how to behave
toward a people entitled to be free, and
come home to enter again upon the
peaceful pursuits of life, for which
American citizenship has become pro
verbial, and letourGovernmeiit requite
only compensation for a loss which can
be restored, treasuring the blood of her
sons and ours as jewels and diadems to
be set upon her brow, this, to my
mind, is the only philosophy of this
war, through which may he seen the
hand of God and the final prosperity of
the grandest country on the face of the
e n th. T. J. Di'NCAN.

Some of our late rains were followed
by heavy winds. About three weeks
ago the storm was particularly hard
and destructive in Mixora. one barn
was blown down, killing one mule and
two hogs and crippling two nice saddle
horses. "The Luxora Hotel" was built
about four feet from the ground, and
she was gently blown off her blocks.
Much damage was done to table ware
and other articles of a delicate nature,
and a line velvet carpet or two were
ruined by the rain pouring in. The
tmildiuic was left tilted toone side, and
the inmates were terribly frightened,
but no one hurt. Several buildings in
course of construct'ou were also some

Master Jopliu Hale and sister, Miss
Beulah, have recently returned from
Asheville X. C, to spend vacation at
home. The former had for school-mates
there some Maury County boys; and
Miss Lilian Hale came down on "The
Sunshine" from Kvansville, Ind., to
spend vacation with her parents also.
Bennie Nicholson is certainly enjoy
ing himself at home, too. I wish those
parents of children with impaired vis
ion, could hear this child of Just nine
years, talk of the kindness of nis teach
ers at the Blind School, the good times
he has there with the other little boys,
how much he has learned and howanx-
ious he Is to return; then doubtless
they would consider the condition of
their own little unfortunate ones and
give them some of the advantages that
can be had by sending them there.
Their future state, when they shall be
come men and women, should be of far
more interest to their parents now than
the mere pleasure of having them at
home. The health of our family has
been reasonably good so far, as has
been of every one else here since we
came. I have heard of but two deaths
so far, aud they were both small chil
