The CMldren of the Ghetto" at Ens
llsh'a Last Xlffht.
That Indianapolis theater-sjoers possess
wills of their own and occasionally refuse
to bow down to the Imperious dictates of
the New York dramatic critics was Illus
trated in a most happy manner at En
glish's Opera House last night. When
The Children of the Ghetto" was pro
duced for the first time in the American
metropolis the critics united In one of the
most violent efforts that was ever made
to sink a dramatic production Into utter
oblivion. They would probably have suc
ceeded if men of different caliber from that
of the Messrs. Liebler had been behind
the play. They knew, however, that their
money had not been invested in a failure,
and with a epirlt of bravery that cannot
be too highly commended resolved to sub
mit the matter to the Judgment of the pub
lic at large for final decision.
To one who saw the piece last night and
noted the manifest delight with which it
was received the verdict of Indianapolis
can scarcely be In doubt. "The Children
of the Ghetto unquestionably scored one
of the most pronounced dramatic triumphs
of the season. To analyze the production
and attempt to point out each element of
Its success would, perhaps, be impossible.
It has been said that the play itself is de
fective and that the remarkable cast inter
preting It blinds one to its faults. Be that
as it may, .there la one fact that.Js not
open to rational dispute! Mr. Zangwill has
succeeded In supplying an element that Is
woefully lacking in many dramas and
without which none can be truly great at
mosphere. The characters are convincing
not merely because they talk In the proper
way, but as well because of their realistic
surroundings. The smallest detail that
would help out the illusion or, in other
words, supply the atmosphere has not ben
neglected. And for this faultlessnes3 great
credit Is due to James A. Ilearne. who is
certainly a prince of stage directors.
The cast of "The Children of the Ghetto"
is. as capable as was ever assembled to
produce a play. The most " insignificant
roles are handled by artists, such as that
of Esther Ansell. the pauper alien's. daugh
ter, which, as portrayed by Mabel Talia
ferro, the wonderful child actress, is a
Veritable gem. Mme. Cottrelly is another
actress of undoubted ability assigned to
an unimportant part, that of Mrs. Belco
vltch. an Imaginary invalid, yet she some
how manages to invest it with Interest and
a certain charm.
- At the head of the company stands Wil
ton Lackayc. whose portrayal of " Reb
Shemuel cannot be characterized In a few
words. It must suffice to say that Mr.
Lackaye's portraiture of the Yiddish rabbi
deserves to rank with the best known to
the stage. Two scenes in which he gave
marvelous revelations of dramatic power
will not be easily forgotten. They are the
scene In the third act, in which the rabbi
discloses the relentless power of the an
cient law, and the thrilling mob scene In
the last act, wherein the venerable priest
quells-the frenzy of the horde of free
thinking Jews by the resistless force of
his simple eloquence. Mr. Lackaye was,
however, obliged to share his honors with
Miss Rosabel Morrison, who assumed the
role of Hannah, and Mr. Guy Bates Post.
who was David Brandon, her lover. Miss
Morrison is not only a beautl'ul young
woman, but a thoroughly capable actress
as well and possessed of a power of facial
expression far above the ordinary. Mr.
Post s ability is abundantly attested by
his successful struggle against a part that
Is niturally barren of sympathy. Mr. wil
li&m Morris makes the character of
Vlnchas. the Hebrew poet, dominant, in
spite of the fact that it belongs essentially
to the class or low comedy, whether talk
lng or resting, he was always funny. The
character may bo exaggerated and doubt
less is, but it is certainly a delightful
creation in the hands of a consummate ar
tist. The remaining characters, of which
there are a host, were all handled in a
most satisfactory manner.
-The Children of the Ghetto" will be re
peated this afternoon and to-night, and
there can be little doubt that the un
wonted opportunity of seeing an original
production with a cast of rare excellence
will bo embraced.

A CALICO CARNIVAL.
A most unique entertainment was given
last evening at the First Baptist Church
by Section "Y" of the Ladies Social Circle.
It was a calico carnival, and It was held In
the church parlor. The decorations wero
decidedly picturesque. The walls were fes
tooned In red calico and the banners were
made of calico in different colors. The
candy booth was very Inviting. The table
from which It was sold was covered with a
long pink figured calico cover. The candy
sold was of the good, old-fashioned kind
the red and white stick candy. Corn crisps
were also sold at this table. Above the
table, in a long festoon, hung gayly-hued
calico bags of candy. In the "Old Ladies'
Retreat." reserved for the u?e of the older
members of the section, old rocking chairs
and odd relics of all kinds were displayed.
One of the curiosities was the old melodeori
which had been used in the Sunday school
titty years ago. It was placed in a con
spicuous place and part of the programme
was rendered on It. At the punch table
two large tin buckets were used for punch
bowls. The punch, which consisted or
water and buttermilk, was served in shin
ing tin cups and dipped from the buckets
with a gourd. The tables from which the
supper was served were odd to the eyes of
this generation. Long calico cloths cov
ered tach one. and a huge tin coffee pot.
from which the women In charge served,
gleamed at each end of each table. Tin
cups were In use here. too. The tallow
candles which lighted the tables were in
old-fashioned candlesticks. Three of them
were ICO years old and the others were
fifty and sixty years old. Bows of IrUht
red calico were the favors given to all the
guests. This was the form of the menu:
One Conglomerated Circle A Doughnut
One Cup of Communicative Cordial.. Coffee
One Common Cereal Compound
A Nut Sandwich
One Cup of Chinese Cheer Tea
One Cup of Cold Comfort .Water
During the carnival old-time songs were
sung by a chorus conducted by Prof. J. S.
Black. The chorus was igely composed
of Mr. Black's former pupils, he himself
being the pioneer miuic teacher of this
city. Old-time recitatlans were given, and
everything was in tlu quaintest style pos
s!t!e. A large crowd attended the carnival,
and it was voted the pleasantest entertain
ment and the most unique which has been
given for a long time.

telegraphing Tuesday, says: "We are in a
state of doubt and anxiety regarding

Bloemfonteln has been severed and the
news from the front is conflicting. It is a
symptom of the present trend of events
that storekeepers In the Free Stato have

CRONJE'S LAST STAND.
Graphio Description of the Long Bat
tle in the Bed of the River.
LONDON, Feb. 23. Belated dispatches
telling of the desperate fighting at Paarde
berg drift, Orange Free State, continue to
arrive here. One correspondent says, un
der date of Tuesday: "As night fell, after
the terrific fighting which lasted all day
Sunday, there was a sudden cessation of
fire, as both sides were thoroughly tired
and glad to rest. The work of collecting
the dead and wounded proceeded, and the
men slept where they had fought the whole
day. The action was one of the most fear
fully contested in the history of the war,
for the Boers were grimly fighting for their
lives, while the British determinedly
harassed them. The mounted infantry did
good work, and the Highland Brigade
fought steadily and sternly. The whole
force behaved well. Sunday evening the
cordon around the Boers was completely
closed on every side in perfect silence. A
few Boers came into camp during the night
and confessed they were sick of fighting
and that General Cronje was being urged
to surrender. All the animals and the men
suffered tenlbly from thirst, while it was
impossible to transport water. A heavy
thunderstorm in the afternoon, however,
considerably relieved their sufferings. Lord
Kitchener was present with tho force.
General MacDonald was wounded in the
foot, but not severely. General Cronje's
force occupies the river bed. Our men
marched splendidly to overtake the re
treating enemy. Deserters say that a great
number of the Boers lost their horses.
Trek oxen are dally seen wandering over
the plain and many come into our lines."
KITCHENER MEETS CRONJE.
Another correspondent, under date of
Feb. 20, says: "Monday morning broke
finding the Boers in the same place, they
having during the night constructed ln
trenchments around the laager, which was
still threatened by (General Smlth-Dorlen.
The infantry rested after the terribly hard
day's fighting on Sunday. The mounted In
fantry and a battery of horse artillery
started to observe the enemy, which was
holding a kopje, but while riding around
the southern side of the kopje they re
ceived a heavy fusillade and were obliged
to movo further out. They sustalred no
casualty, another proof of the bad Boer
marksmanship. Pushing on. the detach
ment found that the kopje extended a con
siderable distance west, sloping gradually
to the plain. They seized a good defensive
position, which was garrisoned. They con
tinued the movement and completely
turned the Boers, whose left was held
Etrongly by a farmhouse, which was vig
orously shelled. The detachment returned
to camp at nightfall, leaving a garrison
on the ridge. Meanwhile a desultory bom
bardment of the Boer position was kept up
and a good deal of rifle fire concentrated
where the Essexes were attempting to rush
up the river. About midday the cry that
General French had arrived was passed
down the ranks, but his division operated
out of sight of our force. When Lord Rob
erts arrived he addressed several regiments
and was vigorously cheered.
"Early in the day General Cronje asked
for a twenty-four-hour armistice In order
to bury his dead. Lord Kitchener refused,
and a little later came another messenger
with word to the effect that if the British
were Inhuman enough to refuse an armis
tice for the purpose of burying the dead
General Cronje saw no other resource but
to surrender. Upon receipt of this mes
sage Lord Kitchener proceeded to the Boer
laager In order to arrange the capitulation,
but he was met by a messenger who an
nounced that General Cronje said that the
whole thing was a mistake; that General
Cronje had not the slightest intention of
surrendering, but would fight until he died.
General Kitchener returned and ordered a
bombardment of the Boer position. Threj
field latteries and a howitzer battery took
position directly in front of the laager and
began a terribly accurate fire, the howitz
ers using lyddite shells freely. The Boers
were seen retiring from the trenches to the
river bed In order to seek cover, but no
cover could protect them from such accu
rate and deadly fire. The howitzers espe
cially dropped lyddite shells with marvel
ous precision into the very bed of the river,
and the trenches were soon filled with ter
rible fumes and green smoke, but again the
enemy held grimly on. Again during the
night deserters arrived. They were terri
bly frightened and shaken by their awful
experience. They reported that they had
water in abundance, but were only able to
draw scanty supplies from their laager
during the night."
' THIRD DAY OF THE BATTLE.
A third dispatch from Paardeberg drift,
dated Feb. 20, says: "To-day was the third
day of General Cronje's imprisonment an'd
grim resistance. Early this morning the
infantry engaged the enemy in the bed of
the river, driving him back a short dis
tance. The morning sun disclosed the
Boers toiling like ants on intrenenments
around their laager. A few shells were
fired to prevent them from continuing the
work, but most of the day was quiet. Gen
eral French's artillery was heard off to the
east, presumably engaging the Boer rein
forcements. Every opportunity was given
the Boers to surrender, but when, towards
afternoon, there was no sign of any such
intentions. Lord Roberts determineu to
crush once and for all General Cronje's re
sistance. On the south bank of the river,
at a range of about 2,003 yards, three field
batteries and two naval twelve-pounders
were positioned. On the north bank, and
enfilading the whole river, one howitzer,
three field batteries and three naval 4.7
guns were placed.
"Then followed tho most wonderful scene
it was ever my lot to witness. Once before,
in Thessaly, 1 had seen 110 guns in action,
but never such a number of powerful guns
concentrating their fire upon a spot about a
milo square. The exploding lyddite shells
raised great clouds of green smoke, which
hid the bed of the river from view. The
shrapnel burst on the edge of each bank
except for a short space where the prox
imity of the British infantry made it dan
gerous. . Our shells searched every bush
and every ravine of the river bed. . The
enfilading guns must have done terrible ex
ecution. Tho roar was deafening, yet with
a spirit of desperate madness now and
again the Boers would attempt to snipe the
naval guns which were firing at a range of
1.000 yards. The long line of three batter
ies belched forth death, while on each side
lay two battalions of infantry, whose Max
ims sounded petty beside the roaring big
guns. What loss the Boers suffered is not
"I am writing this dispatch in the middle
of a sleeping camp. Not a sound disturbs
the heavy slumber of the tired soldiers.
Down the river bed not a fire is seen, not a
cry heard. There is something tragic in
the stern resistance wnich General Cronje
is hopelessly offering. It is imposlble not
to admire his pluck, but all condemn, the
wickedness of uselessly sacrificing the
lives of his brave followers."
VIEWS OF CORRESPONDENTS.
What They Say About the Conduct of
the Wnr in South Africa.
Correspondence of the Associated Press.
LONDON, Feb. 14. The last malls from
South Africa brought a bountiful supply of
dramatic accounts of the war. From Lady
smith, the Tugela, Modder river, Rensberg
and Maf eking come thrilling episodes and
deeds of daring that make the English
justly proud of the men who are fighting
their battles on the veldt. Moreover, in
the many published columns there are
minute explanations by experienced, war
correspondents that help to take away the
sting of defeat, though these writers do
not hesitate to criticise bluntly when the
occasion demands. For instance, the Cape
Town correspondent of the Times scath
ingly rebukes the insular prejudice of many
British officers. "The news of Lord Rob
erts's decision to create an independent
colonial division," he writes, "under com
mand of General Brabant, an experienced
colonial soldier,' and officered In the main
by colonial officers, has caused the greatest
satisfaction everywhere In Cape Colony.
From the very first there had been fre
quent complaints from the English popu
lation in the colony that they had been set
back and that no sufficient use had been
made of their readiness to serve in the de
fense of their country. Full of self-sufficiency
and professional pride, the majority
of our officers displayed the supremest
confidence in the capacity of the British
to do anything and everything and the su
premest contempt for tho notion that vol
unteers or civilians could do anything but
get In the way. Colonial advice was, as a
rule, contemptuously neglected, and the
offers made by prominent colonials to raise
local forces met at first with the greatest
indifference, almost with hostility. Trained
by experience or many Kaffir wars, the
English borderer Is in every way the equal
of the Boer at his own game, and adds to
the Boer's skill and watchfulness a dash
and gallantry which the latter rarely pos
sess." "From Buller's forward lines," Brant
Burleigh writes to the Daily Telegraph in
an equally outspoken way. "As for can
non," he says, "It is little short of a scan
dal, after the lead the sirdar gave the
Woolwich people with lyddite and machine
guns, although the latter did not get to
the front in the Sudan, that thu army ar
tillery with Duller only comprises the fifteen-pounders
and . one five-inch howitzer
Winston Churchill, in the Morning Post,
also has his fling. Writing from Spear
man's hill he declares "the vast amount of
baggage this army takes with it on the
march hampers its movements and utterly
precludes all possibility of surprising the
enemy. I have never before seen officers
accommodated with tents on service. But
here every private has canvas shelter, and
the other arrangements are on an equally
elaborate scale. The consequence is that
marching troops are delaj'ed while the
enemy completes his fortifications. It is
poor economy to let a soldier live well for
three days at the price of killing him on
SEIZURE. OF THE SABINE.
British Authorities IlaTe No Official
Reports) on the Subject.
LONDON, Feb. 21-Tho inquiries of tho
United States ambassador, Mr. Joseph H.
Chate, at the Foreign Office, on the subject
of the seizure of the British steamer Sa
bine, from New York Jan. 4, with a mis
cellaneous cargo, which was captured by
the British gunboat Thrush and taken to
Delagoa bay, have elicited the statement
that nothing 13 known there except the
facts contained in the dispatch announcing
the release of the steamer. Pending the
reception of official reports by the Foreign
Office nothing will bo done in the matter.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23. A good deal of
doubt surrounds the circumstances con
nected with the seizure of the British ship
Sabine, and, while the action of the State
Department in instructing Mr. Choate to
lcok into the matter and to deplore such
Interference with commerce, was inspired
by a desire to avoid any criticism for lack
of diligence, it appears that some points
about the seizure are so obscure as to make
it questionable at least whether or not
there Is yet sufficient ground for protest.
In fact, there is borr.e doubt as to the ac
tual seizure, and, singularly enough, the
British government Itself has not been in
formed, of the event. It is seeking Infor
mation as to the details, and when these
are ascertained the answer will be made to
Mr. Choate. The State Department in this
case has no direct Information, relying on
the statement of Peabody & Co.. of New
York, that their goods to the valuo of $30,000
had been seized on the babine, according to
ienort. The basis or the department's ob
jectlon to a seizure of this kind lies in the
fact that, as the Sabine was bound for a

NEW YORK, Feb. 23.-Miss Maud Gonne,
who has Just returned from a lecture tour
in New England In the interest of the
Boers, said last night: "I find I was not de

sympathy with the Boers exists here in
America. I have lectured in every in

as far west as Omaha. I intend sailing on
March S. as I must return to Ireland, where
we have an antl-recrultlng campaign in
progress.' All the information I have re
ceive from the United Kingdom leads me
to believe that recruiting there is ex
tremely unpopular and that the volunteer
force which they now propose raising will
fall far below their expectations. Rose-
bery has publicly said that it might be that
not more than fifty thousand would volun
teer, and has warned the public not to ex
pect a greater number of enlistments, but
from what I have heard they will be lucky
if they get ten thousand. The way the
mllltla has been maltreated has not tended
to make the army popular. The militia,
which was organized only for service with
in the boundaries of the United Kingdom,
has now been compelled to go Into active

THE SUNDAY-SCHOOL LESSON.
Feb. 25, 1900) Luke Iv, 1G-30 Jesus
Rejected at Nazareth.
The synagogue in Nazareth was a plain, small,
rectangular structure. Its only effort at embel
lishment being in the form of a Greek portico
with the conventional Hebrew twisted foliage
for ornament. Here stand the two alms-boxes
that on the right for the poor of the congrega
tion, that oa the left for the pilgrim Jew. The
interior vies with the exterior in plainness.
Tlaln as a plpestem" certainly applies here.
Common wooden benches seat the congregation.
In a recess In the rear wall Is a chest exactly
proportioned after the ark of the covenant, only
not overlaid with gold and destitute of cherubim.
It faces toward Jerusalem, and contains the
scrolls of the law and prophets. In front is the
reader's desk, and In front of it the elevated
stalls, the "chief seats," for which there was
often an unseemly scramble. The con
gregation gathers. The angel, or president of the
synagogue. Is In his place, with veiled face The
rulers mount to the chief seats. They are on
dress-parade, with their blue- ribbons and white
phylacteries. Strange sight this, an audience of
men! Where are the women? Talk about sep
arate sittings! The women not only sit apart.
but entirely out of view. In a gallery behind
the lattice sit the matrons and maids of Israel.
Service begins. The minister steps into
the pulpit. The audience arises. They burst
out in the recitation of the Shema. (Deut, vi, 4-9,
etc.) The minister, with veiled face and hands
spread toward heaven, chants a prayer. Re
opens the ark. takes out the roll of the law,
finds the passage appointed to be read, calls a
layman from the congregation, and has him
read it. The scroll of the law is then returned.
and that of the prophet brought out. It was Just
at this Juncture, in Nazareth, that tho minister,
glancing over the audience, and noticing the
benignant countenance of a stranger, calls him
to the pulpit and puts the roll of the prophet
Isaiah in his hands. Jesus found the place
where it la written: "The Spirit of the Lord is
upon me." That audience could not have
been Ignorant of who was occupylug their pulpit
that morning. The fame of Jesus had reached
the city where he had been brought up. His
baptism by John Haptlst, his cleansing of the
temple news of these matters must have been
brought by returning pilgrims. They had cer
tainly heard of the miracles in Capernaum, If
not at Cana, too. Jesus did his best to
propritlate his auditors. II might have selected
a paragraph setting forth his regal character.
But. Instead, he chose one which pictured him
as a lowly messenger of helpfulness, and he
carefully stopped short of the sentence which
declared his Judicial office. He had purposely
delayed his coming in order that the fame of
what he did and said in other places might
reach Nazareth, and overcome. If possible, the
contempt which was bred by familiarity.
He almost succeeded. There was a sweet per
suasiveness in voice and manner. There was a
veritable impersonation of humility a self-ob-llviousness
that was captivating to the last de
gree. The fate of Nazareth trembled in the bal
ance. In audible terms, as well as by. look and
gesture, according to tho free manner of the
synagogue, as well as to the demonstrative cus
tom of Orientals generally, they Indicated their
admiration of both speaker and word spoken.
But as the sermon proceeded the reaction
set in. Jesus was perfectly aware that it was
ccmlng. He knew what was in man. He knew
he was to be rejected, before he set foot in
Nazareth; but love and sympathy for his towns
men constrained him not to pass them by. Those
who a moment before were wondering at the
graciousness of his words, were now vociferat
ing about his low birth and humble profession,
and resenting his mild claim to the- Messlahshlp.
They were saying to him: "It you are really the
promised one, why dont you work a miracle on
yourself to begin with? Convert your poverty
Into wealth, your weakness into strength, and
wo will believe you!" Then their local
pride, their village Jealousy, began to assert it
self, as they crid: "Why did you not favor your
own city with your miracles, instead of Caper
naum?" Jesus half apologizes for his fellow-townsmen
as he says: "I am only meeting
tho prophets' fate. My towns folks are not doing
worse than Israel in general." tint it was his
next word which proved a veritable firebrand In
thelr hearts. It was the suggestion that as
Elijah and Elisha passed over the unworthy de
scendants of Abraham and conferred their gra
cious benefits upon gentiles, so he. who was their
prototype, muet do likewise. "What I the in
alienable rights of the elect people go to gentile
dogs?" The synagogue is in an uproar. The
pendulum of feeling has swung from the point
of admiration to the opposite extreme of vin
dictive hatred. Sen-ice closed in a most
uncommon and unseemly manner that day. There
was no closing hymn. In which the soprano and
alto came pouring through the lattice from the
choir invisible, to blend sweetly with the tenor
and basso. There was no blessing or benediction,
as was wont, pronounced by priest or Invoked by
layman. The synagogue had Judicial pre
rogatives. As Renan says: "Each was a little
independent republic, each could pronounce sen
tence for penal offense." This is exactly what
the synagogue of Nazareth did. It excommuni
cated Jesus on the spot. It cast him out Judi
cially. It proceeded to put him to death in a
legal manner: casting down from a precipice
being a lawful substitute for atoning.
Jesus aid not eludo his enraged neighbors by
either striking thera with blindness or making
himself invisible to them. Luke expressly says:
"He passed through the midst of them." They
saw him as he passed, but wer powerless to
detain him. They instinctively opened ao alslo
EFFECT OF FRICK'S SUIT.
Carnegie Is Making: No More Promlee
to Endow Libraries.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23. The suit
brought by Mr. Frlck, tho Pittsburg iron
roaster, against Mr. Carnegie for about
$16.000,000, has hung up library schemes set
on foot by congressmen in an aggregate
sum of not less than $3.000.000. It tran
spires that about half the members of
Congress have been negotiating with Mr.
Carnegie for the endowment of libraries In
their several districts. A great many cases
were In a well advanced stage when Mr.
Frick began his suit. In every single in
stance where the deal had not been closed
and the money promised negotiations wera
summarily stopped. Whero Mr. Carneglo
had entered Into an agreement to estab
lish libraries the understanding Is that the
money will be forthcoming according to
contract, but all open deals are suspended.
Mr. Carneglo proved an easy subject for
the blandishments of congressmen, and In
almost every instance where he was ap
proached by them made friendly response
to overtures and carried on corrcspond
dence looking to favorable consideration of
plans proposed. Now, however, all theso
matters are in abeyance, and whether
r egotlations will be resumed at a later day
Is entirely for Mr. Carnegie to say. As the
case now stands It is evident he is not go
ing to throw any money away or expand
his benevolences. He may have need for
his ready cash In settlement with truculent
partners, several of them having appar
ently Joined with Mr. Frick in his efforts
to compel the multl-mllllonalre to do as
they wish. While on the subject of Mr.
Carnegie and his money It may be men
tioned that one of the great Ironmasters
of the country who Is thoroughly familiar
with the big outlines of all the large iron
and steel concerns says the rrofit of the
Carneifle company for 1900 will approxi

The Dablesi in. the Sunday-School.
The newftt thing under the sun in Sunday
school life Is the "Cradle Roll." Many Sunday
schools are now registering the names of babies
and children under two years of age on the
"Cradle RolL" By this plan the interest of
mothers is secured in the Sunday school, and the
children are taught from the very beginning that
they are members of the Sunday school. Some
Sunday schools have a little cradle in the pri
mary department la which the names of tha
members of the "Cradle Holl" are kept. Every
Sunday a prayer is oftcred for the members of
this department, and on each returning birth
day the children are remembered with the flft
of a beautiful card or some birthday remem
brance. For further information ia regard to
this fascinating feature of Sunday-school work,

CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR, TOPIC
For Feb. 25. The Strength of Muxall
Ity, Luke xtIII, 0-14.
Alas for Dickens's Uriah lleep! He has gone
far, with his " 'umblenees." toward spoiling one
of the noblest words in the English' language.
"Humility" comes from the Latin word meaning
"ground," "earth." and. indeed, humility is the
ground, the fosndation of all other virtues. Just
as pride is their destruction. It is thp ground
work of beauty. "The ornament of a Ineek and
quiet, spirit" Is the silver setting of all charm.
It is the groundwork of wisdom, for do ote is
wise who thinks he is, and no one caa teach
others who is not teachable himself. It U the
groundwork, of power, for It is the world's serv
ants that are its real masters, and "Influence
means "inflowing" into others lives, root drawing
them royally to yourself.
And humility Is the ground-work of Chris
tianity, so that It is absolutely certain, what
ever may or may not be true of a proud man,
that he is a follower of Jesus. This is not be
cause of Christ's saying that "the last shall be
first," but that saying is because of the nature
of things. It is because Christ came to make
us like his Father, who "worketh hitherto," No
being In the universe gives hlmlf for others ia
so minute, lowly. long-suffering" 1 ways ' as' the
Lord of the unirerse. Humility Is not an effort
of the will. To say, "Now 1 will be humble,'
Is only to add to your othc kinds of pride a
new variety. Humility Is not the result of
Philosoph', of arguing yourself insignificant; or
of rejcntance, discovering yourself slnfuL It
does not spring from tho knowledge of a lack in
yourself nothing so strong as humility could
come from a negation. For humility la one of th
strongest things in the world. It not only car
ries burdens. It commands armies. It not only
sweeps rooms, it reforms nations. Where pride
would move upon men with its own strength and
finds it utterly futll humility influences the
strength of others, and so adds to its own.
What, then, is the secret of this splendid thing,
humility? In one word, it Is sacrifice. Think of
yourself strong enough to sacrifice yourself,
and you will find yourself strong enough to be
humble. You will have taken up your cross,
which has the making of a scepter in it. and you
will have bared your brow for the crown of,
thorns, some day to be transformed, into a
crown of diamonds. fck that, though humility Is
the Christian's gateway to happiness and path
of pewer, it ia by no means to be sought, but
comes as the result of seeking something eise
Do not plan for it; plan to help raen. Do not
think about it; think about Christ and your
brother, and work for, both. Select the services
that need to be performed, however difficult, in
significant and obscure, and if you allow the
spirit of them to master you. they will endow
you with the mastership of men, the happy
strength of humility. AM03 R- rELL8.
