mean that punishment will not be

who are guilty of heinous crimes but
it should mean that it will be legally
carried out and the greatest efforts
should be devoted to those states
where there is today the least respect

are unquestionably in need of an or

THE PROTEST OF THE JEWS
There can be no wonder that the
Jews in many cities of this country
are adopting or have adopted resolu
tions calling upon this country, the
president or the peace delegation at
Paris to take steps that will help to
put an end to the horrible massa
cres of Jews in Europe with partic
ular reference to Poland, Russia and
Rumania.
The frightful treatment which they
have suffered in that part of the
world is nothing new, but in view ol
the efforts to bring about improved
conditions, to make the world safe for
democracy and to relieve the oppress
ed it is certainly time that attention
THE MAN WHO TALKS
. It is said "Habit 'commences to bind
you with a gossamer thread like the
silken web of a spider, but when -the
job is completed the sinews of habit
have turned to steel. Why do you
look so lonely ? Why so sad ? Why so
worried? Through the mind .Habit
has imprinted the sign where all can
see it. The heart, which likes to
cherish a little song is not guilty" of
giving you away. The habit of the
mind increases the wrinkles on your
brow and removes the light of joy
from your eyes. You cannot look
right unless you think right. You
cannot carry age well if you do not
carry life's burdens well. You miss
the joys of life by becoming too conr
scions of its drawbacks. The elixer
of life lies in the heart, not the ima
gination. Think right, do right and
you'li look right.
You may never have thought of
yourself as a wizard, but since Na
ture is a wizard and you are a child
of nature, there must be something
of the wizard in every one of us,:of
course. And the more we know of
Nature and Nature's laws, the more
of a wizard we become; and it is
through this knowledge that men
come to be known as nature-fakirs,
or as weather prophets. If it is a

COL. CHARLES W. GALE.
Not in a long period of time has
.Norwich experienced a loss that has
called for such a- widespread expres
sion of sincere rrcxet as that caused
by the sudden taking away of Colonel
'liarles W. Gale. He was -one of the
community's leading citizens, a man
highly honored and respected by all
classes, and one whose place in the
community and in the hearts of the
people will he most difficult to fill.
To a man that i.- big enough for a
community to mourn and remember
there are two skip, his public side
and his personal side. Tor a .half cen
tury Colonel Gale was identified with
the financial and business interests of
the city and it was the open and con
scientious manner in which he ad
ministered his duties, the spirit of
fairness and right that was always
displayed and his cordial and demo
cratic nature that won for him the es
teem of all-with whom he had deal
ings. His enthusiasm in public under
takings was inspiring, his efforts re
lentless and his leadership the kind
that obtains results. He had the God
given faculty of being a man among
men.
And what he was publicly he was
likewise personally. Faithful and true
to every duty, considerate and broad
minded, his was a noble, generouy
sympathetic nature that is too well
known by those among whom he lived
and associated to need dilation here,
but all too rarely is a community
blessed with such a personality.
Norwich has sustained' a loss that
will be realized more and more as
lime got 8 on but none could hope for
a greater monument than that which
he. has bullded in the honor and es
timation of his feljpwmen.

The Jews are asking for no rights
that ought not to be accorded to other
human beings, but 11" justified in
the effort they arc :v. :; to see that
the barbarism that has been prac
ticed upon the Jews be halted. It is
a curious situation when the allied na
tions have been fighting to put an end
lo such frightfulness as has been
practiced to have those who have been
helped and released from (bondage
turn upon the Jews simply because
they are Jews. Because certain Jews
may have sided with the bolsheviki or
other dangerous elements does not
mean that all of them have and the
many should not be made to pay the
penalty that the few deserve.
The Jews are justified in protesting
against the treatment they have re
ceived and when it comes to getting
justice for humanity there is certainly
an excellent opportunity for putting
forth some timely work in their behalf.
THE BUDGET SYSTEM.
For a number of years there has
been a clamor' for a budget system in
lonncction witli the conduct of na
tional business. It is a system that
has been found ind! it.ensible in town,
t ity and state affa;rs and certainly it
is as Important, if not more so. that
it should be adopted in connection
with Hie federal government.
In spite of Hie cviiienc-j that has
been presented in behalf of such a sys
tern and the revelations concerning
the manner jr. which the business of
the government is being conducted
under pi-csant methods, it has never
been possiVe to bring it about. It

THE LESSON OF MOBILE.
Another southern city, Mobile, has
experienced the efforts of a disastrous
lire by which 200 buildings were de
stroyed, 1GO0 people made homeless
and 'property damage of from three
quarters to a million dollars caused
It was miieh the same kind of a fire
that swept through Atlanta a few
years ago leaving a great expanse of
rain in its wake befpre it could be
checked.
Mobile's fire swept away the older
residence section where there were
few modern buildings, but its business
and industrial districts were threat
ened and it was only by a hard fight
that they were saved.
This .city, like others that have ex
perienced similar trouble, will take
advantage without doubt of the op
portunity to rebuilt the devastated
section on modern lines but it comes
at an unfortunate time for such oper
ations and what makes it all the worse
is that it might have been prevented
by the exercise of due care.
Thi-j like many other fires started in
a pile of rubbish in the rear of a store,
- e li ion which, is very apt to exist
unless the proper attention is given to
e.i.inaaiiii!; such hazards. Where in
flammable material is allowed to ac
cumulate it offers the best possible
makings for a fire. Once it gets start
ed with wooden buildings to prey up
on and a good wind to fan it it means
suffering and hardships if not many
deaths.
But the fact remains nevertheless
that there are many cities no doubt
where just such conditions exist,
where the danger of such lack of pre
caution is realized regarding someone
else, but where the lesson is not
brought home until something
what happened in Mobile occurs.
The same law which makes
you wise. Nature is called a wizard
because she is constantly doing
something we do not Understand. By
a better knowledge of her laws we
do things others do not understand.
A great man shows his greatness
by his lack of conceit and breadth of
human interest and apparent un-
consciousness of his power, not by
an assumed front and .shiny collar
and cuffs. Greatness is ' the reward
for having done little things well an'
all things creditably. All any of us
can attain depends upon our rela
tion to the other fellow. No man
can become distinguished or great
by himself. It is recognition and ap
preciation of what we do that gives
us place and power. We are indebt
ed to the men back of us for twenty
centuries, as well as to our personal
efforts and our instructors for what
we become. No man is born great.
Only industry, honesty and honor lead
to true greatness.
For gracefulness of flight and play,
the swallow exceeeds all other New
England birds. When they are not
hunting ephemera above large maple
trees, or over water, they are playing
with one another or playing alone. One
will fly high with a feather, drop it
and dive and catch it before it reaches
the earth, being self-entertaining like
the person who plays solitaire to take
up the time and cultivate his wits.
The other morning among a mass of
swallows I noticed two that flew side,.

more, just because they liked to be to
"'Thee is no long wait between the

coming of our summer friends no
short songless Eden. The visiting
grosbeaks came on Thanksgiving and
did not-leave us till the.'first week in
April when robins, grackles, blue-.
birds and song sparrows were back, in
imposing numbers. Before the last
bunch of southern juncos had passed
by, there were owlet fledglings, early
robins and sparrows were building,
well-feathered hawks nests held incu
bated eggs, starlings were ; feeding
young in crevices of our ash trees anil
in holes in the peak of the roof in
the -old village postoffice and there
were young grackles in the rookery
on? FremoT'l street, Putnam.
From the grosbeaks four months'
stay, from their number, their colorful
grouping, their cheerful chatter, ' and
entire lack of shyness I could almost
endorse the expression of a local ob
server "I tell you what! These pineys
and evenings, beat our. rosybreasts all
hollow." ' Well, not quite, you know.
But when in spring or summer can

birds like tanagers or orioles in a

with no shade of bickering, while in a
circle around thern were twenty sobe.r
females feeding and watching the
mutual admiration of tiieir gaudy
lords. If there was a day without the
pines,' the evenings would appear," and
if neither species was at hand at The
Maples, they could be seen at Pigeon

For . eight days I watched the
grackle rookery in the tall pine -trees
on Fremont street, Putnam larger
than last year and a greater scourge
to all robins meeting in the vicinity.
Yet the bronze males were an attrac
tion, stalking on the nearby lawns
and scavenging in back yards, while
both sexes were busy at all hours of
the day feeding their squabs, which
surely get a big allowance of insects
and mixed food. It was real comfort
to sce.bluejays make two raids on ex
posed corners of the rookery, and I
saw jays drop grackle eggs on the
granolithic walk May Sth and 9th. It

We are all looking for happiness in
life, and may find it not in the attain
ment of their desires but by making
the most of what they have. Happi
ness depends more upon the mind than
upon materia possessions. It makes
no difference what we succeed in, or
how we live, if we do not think we are
happy we cannot be. Enjoyment is
an emotion never intended to be con
tinuous, for it is the stern experiences
of life that are necessary to build
character, and from character grows
contentment, and this is as ne'ar to
real happiness as most mortals can
hope to get. Happiness is such a good
thing it has its counterfeits, and jthe
happiness of some people ip the end
increases their misery. Real happiness
is the result of sane thought properly
applied to that which we have and
that which we may hope tor.

It seems strange to hear the Ger
mans tell the Entente what they
have turned Germany into, when they
turned every nation they overrun into
a slaughter-house, and manifested a
desire to make of every garden spot a
desert, and to make of every holy
sanctuary a heap of ruins. They find
no heart in the world responsive to
their appeals because of their own
heartlessness. They are now dem

self-conceit of power, cringe to its
just demands, and seek to be excused

Will the world ever know the loss of
human life from "war, pestilence and
famine" in the past five years? The
war EWept off ten million human
souls in four and a half years: and the
pestilence swept away many more in
half a year in 1918. America lost half
a million, England a million, Europe
four million, India six millions, with
Africa and Asia entirely left out of
the computation, which may add other
millions. Doubtless a million or two
have perished from starvation: and it
is no misrepresentation to claim above
twenty-five million people have died
during the worlds war, from causes
directly or indirectly chargeable to it.

in blossom was March 28, 1903 and
the latest April oth. 1919; and it has
been in full bloom but twice in March

have burst on the same date but
twice, and not once has. the elm been
in full leafage on the same date. The
earliest this tree has been in full leaf-1
age is May iu, 1910, and the latest
June 6, 1917. It is as constant in the
development of its foliage as the birds

Polish lands, the Empress Maria The
desa wrote, prophetically in view o
recent events, 'I have yielded, not
wishing -to make war, but quite con
trary to my convictions. I hape that
the monarchy may not feel the ef
fects of this after ray death.'
"Frederick the Great of Prussia; :who
had engineered the partition, did not
take the Austrian monarch's qualm's
seriously. 'She is always weeping and
always taking,' was his comment.
"In the same year Austria came for
ward with additional claims on the
ground that Prussia and Russia were
availing themselves of the opportunity
to acquire certain districts for which
they had long contended. Therefore,
despite her pangs of conscience," the
provident empress gained possession
cf about 1 .500 square miles of territory
to which she gave the tile of the king
dom of Galicia and Lodomcria, and
made Lemberg the capital.
"Twelve years later Joseph II, whose
futile ambitions caused his reign to be.
compared t to a man who constantly
desired to sneeze and could not, es
tablished the University of Lemberg"
This university became one of the best
known Polish institutions of learning.
"One of Lemberg's parks bears the
name of the Polish patriot, Jan Ki
linski, a shoemaker who fought
bravely in 1796. He was captured and
taken to St. Petersburg. Following
his release he returned to his shoe
moker's bench and when custom was
light he wrote his recollections, which
form a valuable record of this period.
"Lemberg, nearly as large as Denver,
Colo., or Rochester, N ,Y., before, the
war began was tl?j fourth city of Aus
tria, it is 60 miles east of Przemysl.
and more than 450 miles northeast of
Vienna. It lies on the banks of th
Peletw -river, which flows into '.the
Bug. Eighty-seven miles to the-east
is Tarnopol, near the Russian, bordfer,
among the first points of attack when
the Muscovites crossed the Galician
frontier. , ...
"Scene of a poular uprising in 184S,
Lemberg became the seat of the Ga
lician diet upon the establishment of
that body in 1861. Before 1914 it man
ufactured iron ware, machinery
matches, candles, liquors, chocolate:,
leather bricks and tiles. Its com.
merce was largely in linen, wool, oiC
flax and- hemp.
