THURSDAY, JI.’NK «. !>l« •f ——» •—————■——— 1 Work and Obedience Summed Up Gospel of Kitchener, Man of Iron Horatio Herbert Kitchener, more l familiarly known as “K. of K.”. the man of iron and relentless will, stern disciplin ■ arian, efficient organizer, who seemed to: • the world at large more of a giant ma chine than a man. lies dead somewhere off the Orkney islands in the North sea, victim of a more implacable machine than even he could combat. Leaving England when a very young; man, to assist in a survey of Palestine. > the Orient from that time seemed to cUim him for its own, for, from then on. most of his life was spent in voluntary exile. Four years in Palestine were fol [ lowed by another four-year survey of the Island of Cyprus, after which Kitchener •' began his career of 17 years in Egypt. His first commission was that of com f tnander of the Egyptian cavalry, later he was with the Nile expedition and final ly he was made adjutant general of the 1 Egyptian arm/. It was through his Khartoum expedi tion in 1898 that Kitchener became best known to the world. Parliament recog ’nixed his services by raising him to the | peerage and granting him 30,000 pounds. L As chief of staff in the South African war fat 1899-1900, and commander in chief of tile army in India 1902-1909, he achieved A notable position throughout Europe •nd Asia and became a famous figure to I America as well. When the present war broke out he tM in England on leave of absence, l which the British parliament considered A piece of rare good luck. He was made secretary of war, a position he occupied At his death. Physically Lord Kitchener was a larjre boned, ungainly figure, six feet, three 1 inches tall, with a brick red face in which eyes of a steely intensity looked out up on offenders with merciless justice. His gospel was work and obedience and he expected of others what he was scrup ulously conscientious in rendering him self. He was possessed of a grim, laconic humor and, though he did not inspire love, all men respected and trusted him. There must have been another side to his nature which he kept hidden, for children were invariably fond of him and would approach him without fear. His nature was conservatively reli gious. The first thing he did after kill ing 11,000 Dervishes to avenge General Gordon, was to hold a solemn service in Khartoum; the next thing was to collect funds for a college in which the sons of the slain Dervishes could be educated. To Kitchener is due the credit of end ing the reign of Mahdism in Africa and also the reconstruction of the Sou dan. Though considered more of an or ganizer and director than a soldier, he could fight when occasion demanded it. His ability to brush aside non-essentials and red tape and arrive at the underly ing principle of the situation, was one yt his most valuable characteristics. the opinion of the ma. ority he ? inserted, at the beginning of the present war, that it would iast three or four years and asked for men by million . He built Up from practically nothing, an army of 4,000,000. His mind is *aid to have l*»en a sort of compromise between the Irish and the Asiatic, and, on account of his long life in the Orient, it was felt by tome that it would be better to place him In Egypt where he could have charge of the eastern end of the fighting for the Allies. There can be but one opinion as to I<ord Kitchener’s faithful service to his country, and he possessed to marked de jpree those two qualities so dear to the of the British people, bulldog per- U&acity and pluck. Schiff Will Continue To lie a Mighty Good Friend to His Race j Jacob Schiff. known all over the worM as a great financier and philanthropist, has announced that he will no longer try to help his people through the larger, more effective moans ot legislation, but will remove his endeavors from politics. He made this declaration in the an nual convention of the Kehillah, which iis the Jewish community ot New \ork !city, and he did it with much feeling land regret. So good an American is Mr. SchitT that he stood against a movement of the Jews to create an American Jctvi>h con gress and also a resolution to have all Jewish public meetings conducted in the Yiddish tongue. In his opinion this would cut off his people from the >\m pathv and understanding of America and they would become an alien factor in American life, as they are in Russia and Poland. He desired, above all things, to have them public spirited and to throw their influence with all civic and national improvement; to become, in fact, part of the warp and woof of American life so that no discriminating laws against them may ever be made. Mr. Schiff has sought to bring pres sure to bear upon the Russian govern ment, through the government of the United States, to oblige that country to allow free enrance to the American Jew, feeling that with that reciprocity the Russian government could no longer pur sue its present anti-Jewish policy of per secution. His own people have not un derstood and appreciated him and he, therefore, withdraws his support and will in the future help his fellowman only as individuals and in a private ca pacity. Mr. Schiff is one of the greatest fig ures in banking and railroad finance. He reconstructed the Union Pacific in 1897, and brought about the railroad “commu nity of interests.” which did away with an immense amount of loss and waste. He helped float the Japanese loan in 1904-5 and was, later, decorated by the Mikado for his part in the transaction. He says that but for the United States Japan must inevitably have lost in the war with Russia. In 1908, he attempted to place all Jews that came to this country in posi tions where they could gain a living, and with that end in view had them land at [Galveston and thence scattered them throughout the west. He is a firm be liever in unrestricted immigration and is quoted as saying: “The worker in the tenement who has hardly learned to un derstand our language, but who toils by day to earn a mere pittance, does more to add to the greatness of the metropo lis than the native-born millionaire who drives his four-in-hand in Central park.” Conditions of surplus labor will only be temporary he thinks, and will speedily adinst thprnsfdves. Jacob SchifT holds to the old Mosaic law that a man must give a tenth of his income to charity. He has founded a chair in social economics in Columbia university and given several scholarships for this subject. He instituted a Semitic chair in Harvard and presented a build ing for its use. He has given to the New York library the largest collection of Jewish literature in the world. He has founded the Montefiore Home for Chronic Invalids, the Jewish Theological seminary, and is an officer or member of the American Museum of Natural His tory, Metropolitan Museum of Art and each of the twelve Jewish charity so cieties in New York citv. All municipal reform movement 1 in that city are sup ported by Jacob SchifT. r~ “ i l!

FRANK CRANE (Copyright, 1915, by Frank Crane) A man’s library .should grow with his lilt’. His books are like the flesh he puts on; and some men are too fat, and others too lean. He should constantly add to his books, and quite as steadily eliminate books. Some books are to be borrowed, or taken from a library, for you only want to see them once. Such are not really books; they are bound periodicals. In this class are almost all fictions, books “of the day,” books in vogue with the mob, best sellers, and sensations. Other books, and they are not many, you want to keep. They become part of your being. You mark them, go back to them, they are as old companions. Os these books your library should be made. And of these books the first and chief is a good encyclopedia. The encyclopedia is the corner stone of she library. It underlies, supports, com plements all other books. An encyclopedia is not the product of one man’s genius; it is the finished ut terance of the human race, it is the verdict of civilization, it is the oracle of this present century. To consult it is to consult mankind. The encyclopedia is the one book you cannot afford not to own. It costs something; it cannot be boug!it for the price of the latest thriller, but when you buy it you do not buy a cigarette to enjoy a minute and throw away, but a jeucl to wear your life long. As with other things, so with books, the cheapest often the dearest. I unhesitatingly say that if I were a young man, whether a clerk, a salesman, a farmer, a mechanic, or engaged in one of the professions as a lawyer, physician, teachc r, or preacher, I would own a good encyclopedia if 1 had to go without lunch every day and wear a shiny coat. It is a luxury for which one may well do without some necessities. It is the mind’s wife, a comfort in I leisure hours, a standby in a crisis, an insurance of virtue. For any man’s intellect, I care not : whose, is crippled without this mute and 'myriad-minded friend at his elbow. (let the encyclopedia habit. In other words, be a superior man. The superior man is the one who is i not sloppy minded, as the crowd always is. He challenges facts. He does not !accept the ipse dixits of the loud and j positive. He looks things up. He knows. He does not take things for granted. That does not mean he is a pedant, crammed full of ready statistics, parading his fancy hits of information. The sure-footed mind is not the one that knows things, it is the one that knows where to lind things. The person with the encyclopedia habit loes not carry in his head all knowledge; but be has the key to the storehouse, he knows right where to go to get what he needs. And, other things being equal, success is the reward of the man who is sure of his facts. There are other books it is well to have, books that are entertaining, use ful. and of cultural value; but there is no book you must have, that is equally essential to the college president and the stniggling wage earner, except the en velope dia.
