HAMPSHIRE HOME OF HEROES
"The desire of the American troops now encamped, or
rather hidden, in the lonely section of Hampshire, to see
something of London before their departure for Prance, Is
no greater than the desire of the people of London to
see something of them." London Daily Mail
If the editor of the Review were a member of the
American expeditionary force in England he would rath
er be stationed in Hampshire than anywhere else in the
tight little island, London not excepted. No spot In tl'e
wide world has a finer history than this grand little shire.
It was the heart and soul of England in the old days of
England's glory. From Hampshire came the fighting
men who made England's name known and feared in ev
ery land washed by the seven seas. .
The billmen who defended Harold at Hastings to the
last man came from Hampshire. It was in the Hamp
shire forests that the longbow was developed and reached
JU greatest efficiency, and from this shire came the bow
men whose uncanny skill turned the tide of all the great
battles of the Hundred Years' war in favor of England
and against France.
In song and story of Merry England of the Golden
Days Hampshire always played an important part. Sir
Nigel Loring, the famous knight in Conan Doyle's White
Company, came from Hampshire, and the early events
of the story took plac in this shire. In every great event
of early English history Hampshire captains sat in coun
cil and Hampshire soldiers were the flower of the army.
At Crecy, Poictiers, Blenheim, Waterloo, battles to
which England points with greatest pride, Hampshire
regiments bore the brunt of the fighting. It was pi
a Hampshire regiment that Marshal Soult pointed on the
morning of Waterloo, and said to the Emperor Napoleon:
"The English infantry is very hard to break, sire."
Hampshire knights were among that determined body
that wrested the magna charter from King John. Hamp
shire captains fought in the crusades; they beat Napo
leon's troops in Egypt; they were with Wolf at the tail
ing of Quebec; they beat the Russians in the Crimea
and helped bold Lucknow.
American soldiers, quartered in Hampshire, who have
read history, should swell with pride at the honor done
them to be stationed in this historic shire. They shoul 1
salute the man who sent them there. They should gain
inspiration from' their brief stay in the home of a soldier
THE DISTRICT'S HANDICAP
Real estate men and Commercial club members the
country over will proudly point to the scarcity of empty
houses in their town and declare this is the sure and un
failing index of that town's prosperity. But there can be
too much of a good thing. There can be such a scarcity
of houses that the town has to sit back on its haunches
and watch other towns go by. There can be sucji a
scarcity of houses that the real estate man's lips are
dumb and the Commercial club member has to hide out
for fear of being mobbed by some pilgrim whose family
and household goods are camping under a tree.
' And that is the state of affairs in the Warren dis
trict right now. Not an empty house between the divide
and the Country club. Rents high as a cat's back. Men
with families, advertising and inquiring and looking for
houses. Yes, the district is prosperous, all right, and go
ing ahead. at a great rate, but it should take steps at
once to miss no measure of Its prosperity. It should look
the situation squarely in the face and take immediate
and practical steps to provide for its future growth an l
Next fall and early winter are sure to witness the
greatest growth and progress the district has ever known.
Word has gone out all over the country that this district
is free of labor troubles for good and all; that it Is clean
of infection. The Influx of families of the better clasi
is sure to be very large and will constantly increase.
Wages are high here; the attractions of climate, firnt
class working conditions, Americanized district, all these
will bear fruit. What are we going to do about it? No
town can afford to lose a single family for such a cause
as lack of houses. It is both strange and impossible that
such a thing could be.
Men who have the interests of the district at heart,
men who take a pride in it and have faith in its future
must put on foot some plan to provide plenty of houses.
Scores of new homes are being built right now in
Warren, where there should be hundreds. Apartment
houses should be built in 'Bisbee.
One of the most pressing needs of the hour right now
is a concerted building campaign upon a scale never
dreamed of In this valley before. No town can go ahead
except to the tune of the hammer stroke upon the wire
nail and the grating of the concrete in the mixer and the
scraping sound of the bricklayer's trowel.
The man who brings a family to a town is worth
four who come alone. He is keenly interested in schools,
churches, parks, streets, Mdewalks and every kind of pub
lic improvement and public betterment. For such a
man, whether be comes one at a time or by the score and
by the hundred, there should always be a house for him
and his that he rent, buy or lease at a reasonable price.
What are we going to do about it?
. , SUNDAY MORNING SERMON.
"As I passed by" and beheld your devotions, I found
an altar with this" inscription: To-the unknown God.'
Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, Him I declare
unto you." Acts 17:22.
Paul, the greatest preacher and orator the world has
ever known, pronounced the words above to the men of
Athens when he went out upon the hill of the gods above
their city to address those assembled there. And his au
Idience was composed in the main of thinkers, statesmen,
poets, philosophers, painters, the cream of the learning
of the world of that period, and egoists, all of them.
These Athenians worshipped many gods, a'nd, for fear
they had missed one deity in their devotions, they had
set up al altar to an unknown God. Paul knew his audi
ence, and with the genius of the master orator, he seized
hold of their rich Imagination and sentiment by declar
ing his God to be their very "unknown God." And as a
result of his immortal sermon that day the Christian
church was founded in Athens and endures to this time.
All of us worship an "unknown God." And by our
worship we are known of men and angels. No matter
how secret we are about it, or how careful, or how cau
tious, or how circumspect, this worship is made known
through our daily acts and lives. 1
What god do you worship? You may profess the
God on high, but what god do you worship ? Is it the god
of money, or of success, or of fame, or of selfishness, or
of vanity, or of subterfuge, or of licentiousness? We all
worship at a. secret altar made of earthly things. We
raise our eyes to heaven and cry in a loud voice, but the
earth claims and holds too much of our devotion.
Upon what are your hopes most centered this day?
A house? A car? A trip to the coast? A promotion? A
great speech? A successful business deal? A new gown?
A party, or reception? Surely it is one of these. And
all are perfectly natural and human ambitions. They
offer happiness, gaiety, amusement, pleasure, ease. They
are all earthly goals, placed before us to earn by the sweat
of our brow after our first father and mother were driven
from the Garden.
But how did you gain them? Did you jostle a brother?
Did you bring a pang to a sister's heart? Did you play
fair? Did you keep your hands clean' and your heart
kind and your soul sincere all along the way? Are you
humble, now that you have reached the goal?
If not, you paid too much for your place in the sun
of human hopes come true.
What do you worship? If you bow before the altar
of Mammon, it will come out in your every act day by
day. It will be stamped upon your face for every one
to read. It will show in your eyes, in your bearing, in
If you bow before the altar of pride you must rattle
his chains when you walk. The gods of selfishness and
crooked dealing and cruelty and ill temper and cowardice
all demand that you wear their livery in the light of
It is not the head bent low that makes the worship
per; It is the spirit that bends that head. The man that
bows down with an unselfish petition in his heart and
upon his lips will some day, if the scriptures be true, in
herit the earth. He is the real prince of the House of
Happiness and Golden Hearts. The man with the kind
word and the pleasant smile and the helping hand an l
the gentle voice; as, he is a worshipper of the True
God. To him Paul, the apostel, would declare, in a voice
that might well reach to heaven, "Whom therefore y-3
ignorantly worship, Him I declare unto you."
' In other words, we each one of us, unconsciously, day
by day, by our acts and our words and our thoughts and
our associations and our impulses and our emotions,
either worship the Lord on High or Satan in the depths
of the pit.

A subscriber of the Tucson Star has written" t'o edi
tor of that paper an article on the I. W. W. in which he
refers to Bisbee as the recognized leader in the new stand
the southwest has taken against the menace, as follows:
"Bisbe'e stands for the new freedom of labor. It has
taught a great patriotic lesson to all the other com
munities on which the I. W. W. threatens to Inflict Its
noisome presence. Best of all, it has aroused the nation
to a sober sense of duty in putting an end to senseless
tolerance of those who would rule or ruin. And Bisbee
is on the map to stay, with the American flag waving
over it. Long may it wave!"
WILL WE HAVE TO
WEAR WOODEN SHOES.
In view of the abnormal conditions
of the leather market not only in this
country but in every other couivry of
the world, the suggestion which has
been made in London for solving the
shoe supply problem is of great in
terest. A London clog maker doing a
big business says that clogs are com
ing more and more into vogue.
Hundreds of London school children
are now wearing clogs, which cost
tbout three shillings a pair (about 73
cents), and London County Council
school teachers ihave been providing
clogs for ill-shod pupils, who have
been paying for them by weekly In
stallments of three pence.
"The price of leather," states a
writer, "may make it necessary for
the city man of the future to clatter
to business in his clogs. '
"For country wear one can buy an
elegant pair of lace-up clogs at a quar
ter of the price of equally efficient
boots. Apart from the attention that
they would attract, there is no rea
son why these should not be worn
in 'town.' There is nothing undigni
fied in the clog worn by the Lan
cashire or Yorkshire textile worker,
and not a few of the captains of the
British textile industry have them
selves worn clogs, and some at least
would not be ashamed to wear them
"The present home demand in Great
Britain is so great that an order for
100,000 pairs of sabots for the Britis'i
government has just had to be declin
ed by a British' clog-making firm.
which received an award for its
clog show at a London exhibition."

Who would have dreamed, a few years ago, when
the Progressives were branding Elihti Root as a stand

that he would go to Russia to play a giant's part in mould

the conglomerated mass of that great land into a co

would be sent to perform this task by a Democratic presi

as one of the few, the very few, really great men of Litis
generation, does not change.
373 PLAINS IN JULY.
Jacques Mortane, the great French
authority on aerial fighting, author of
Thrilling Flights of the War, and E1
itor of La Guerre Aerienne, a weekly
aviation review, has written for L3
Petit Parisien a full account of the
aerial activity of all the belligerents
in July. M. Mortane has given me for
the Chicago Daily News the following
data concerning the aerial activity in

HOW GERMANY'S CHILDREN
WERE TAUGHT "HATE HYMN
You krtow that in the schools of
Germany at the outbreak of the war
the teachers were ordered by the gov
eminent t teach all the little children
Lissaeur's "Hymn of Hate" against
England, said Rev. Willard L. Sperry
of Boston. It would seem that Ger
many has since come to a better mind.
and has repented of this sacrilege
committed against the souls of her lit
tle children. For n'ow, we are told, the
"teaching of that hymn of hate has been
stopped, and Germany is trying to
erase from the memory of its child
hood the evil and fJteful lesson that
was taught at the opening of the war.
It is too late. The lesson cannot be
unlearned, the memory cannot be
erased. Teaching children to hate was
a sin against country and God, as grave
as the crime of the "Lusitania." That
was poisoning, the wells. That was
mortgaging the soul of the future.
Over against that grim and evil pic
ture which has come to us out of Prus
sia, let me put another picture, full of
pitomise for the future of our own coun
try, of all the world. In the course of
my parish work I came the other day
upon a little child, lying out upon the
floor reading an open Bible. I found
that she was reading the Sermon on
the Mount and she told me that her
teacher had asked all the children in
her school t'J learn the last verses of
the fifth chapter of Matthew, about
loving enemies and forgiving those
who do us ill, and she said in her naive
way, "We have to do that, don't we,
because that is what God does to us?'
And my heart went out to some loyal
teacher somewhere in this city who
has seen the vision and heard the 'all.
who is trying to fulfill in some class
room her high calling as a Christian
and a patriot And I know that in the
figure of that little child lying on the
floor learning the neglected words of
Jesus lay the true hope of the world

McClung Francisco and Webster Culli

cate, who are on the ground, says the
Mr. Stoddard was shown about the
proposed location by Messrs, Francis
co and Cullison and went over the
plans for the improvement of the
grove, which include a new fence
around the property, remodeling of the
pavilian, the construction of a large
stage and renovating the swimming
pool. The equipment will cost in ex
cess of $5,000. .
It is understood that the syndicate,
which has heretofore planned to lease
the grove for a year, with privilege of
renewal, is now considering the pur
chase of the entire property outright.
The lease called for only the east half
of the property.
It probably will be several days be
fore the plans of the new syndicate
are complete and ready for announcement.
PLAN WAR PROGRAM
FOR STATE FAIR.
The Arizona Council of Defense has
received a telegram from W. S. Gif
ford, director of the National Defense
Council, asking it to notify the Ari
zona State Fair Commission to bold a
place on its program for patriotic and
educational exhibits, parades, and ad
dresses on all vital war matters. Many
government departments and bureaus
will contribute displays and demon
strations of unusual interest. The
leading patriotic societies of America
and the American Association of Fairs
and Expositions are co-operating heart
ily in this work. A number of confer
ences are being held in Washington
this week outlining many plans for
the program. Full information regard
ing the national program is expected
within a few days from Mr. Gi fiord,
and will be turned over at once to Mr.
Zachau. secretary of the Arizona
State Fair Commission, to be used in
connection with the State Fair Program.

The calling party proved to be the
newspaper man's wife, and in bitter
accents, she broke the news that the
drayman had charged two dollars and
fifty cents to transport a battered old
trunk from Bisbee to Warren. Sacred
name of Shylock, the Jew of Venice!
The newspaper man was sore for the
rest of the day. He finished that edi

a man with a crutch would finish a

the fleet Indian Thorpe.
Two dollars and a half a dollar! In
