THn papexs were full of the now? of a terrible battle. The capital of a ereat nation had been moved from Its ancient dwelling place; armies of men vveie mowing each other down with sevthes arried in automobile, airships weic dropping bombs into the streets, known from one end of tin world to the other. 'u roes were dying, brave women were hi'kinc back their ttjara. cowards -were r nnins from the enemv; the whole world was in a tumult, but my friend had not read the paper. She was not interested m the war Then some one came and said: "Did M'ti see the article this morning on the second page it was? Didn't you notice the name of the man who wiote If Well, he's a cousion of the Hamil ton?, those people who were Mich fiiends of the Goodenoughs, who had a cottage here last summer." And my ft lends, who -was not interested in the news, could scarcely wait till the messenger she sent was back from town with the paper. She cut the article out. and when visitors came she showed it to them, and by nightfull she knew every worn in it by heart, not because it was news that was convulsing the world, not because it moved her heart to sym pathy or to pitv or to terror, but because she had woven in her mind a little chain which connected her very, very aguely with the man who wrote it. I wonder why? I keep wondering and wondering. 1 wonder if we are all like that? Sometimes I like to think of the interestinK people who lived in the v.orld before. If they should come back now Napoleon. Caesar. Mahomet, Shakespeare, ( harlcs Dickens. Moses and Aaar6n. Pharaoh and Raracfs, Alfred the Great wihi his burned oaten cake in his hand. Elizabeth in her stomacher of diamonds. King Hal with his crown upon his head would we stop to no tice them, or would we let them pass without even a look of interest while m turned and gazed down the road to see how Mary Johnson had trimmed her dress, and to speculate on how much she paid for the trimming? Is the human mind like a pail. I wonder; iust so much can so into it and after that every drop is spilled? Does it daze and confute us to sec people and tilings that do not belong m our lives? How is it with the other ani mals. J wonder? Do thev know us apart, those browsing cows thete in the pasture, or do yo and I and kings and potentates a'l look alike to them, unless we come from the home barn and bring thoughts of fodder? It is interesting to -wonder.

The Daily Editorial For Women The Elections and Education. By BETH JEFFRIES. Women are running for political of fice, In New York, Katherine B. Davis appears as a candidate for delegatc-at-large; in the seventeenth Senate dls- tri t the voters will have an opportunity to select Frances A. Kellor; and in the twenty-fourth district Mrs. Charles H. Israels is a candidate. These women, if selected, will aSBist in the framing of the new constitution of the Empire State. The fondest horror of the anti-suf-fiage population has become a thing of fact Instead of fancy. In the face of calumny, defeat, and misrepresentation, suffrage is coming to pass. Slowly, surely, drop by drop the miracle has been wrought. The very State which a hare half century ago condemned the woman's clubs, has a woman as commissioner of corrections a woman to teach men how to teax:h men to behave, and three women arc candidates as State delegates to the constitutional convention! And how have'thev done it? B "In forming the public." Surely the pro cess of education which has been the slogan of the so-called "awakened woman" "is a thing to be marveled at and notea by the vhole world. The most impossible, improbable, a "flight in the face of nature" is being accomplished through EDUCATION of the people. Tit" power of the press and of the printed and spoken word has been grasped ana used to advant age by the women of America, in their effort. The display of such intelligence in the matter of choice of methods should in deed be a recommendation for tin cause. I The intelligent use of the surest meth od of gaining a point has brought and is bringing success. People of other nations have artpieciated this power of education before, but it has been fori no intelligent or civilizing purpose. Get man v used it to make the army which is today terrorizing the world. She. taught militarism, and it is sucecd ing, but to no good end. American women have used the educating pro cos in a legitimate civilizing movement, and are succeeding to an end which stands for a ctiltlvatron and preserva tion ot tho best that there is in a na tion.

Johnny Is looking at me," 13 a not In 6 I frequent complaint In school, it is not. however, limited to youngsters to feel annoyance. Grown ups also, when stared at, feel 111 at case, if not absolutely resentful. The jealous swain accompanied by his lady love docs his utmost to destroy the admiring gaze of each and every passing member of the male species by fiercely out staring him. At home, paterfamilias obtains more obedience by a atare than with the rod. To spare the stare is to spoil the child. Nevertheless, father,' looking over the top ot the latest war news or across life spectacles, frightens bad little boys' into correct conduct by a fixed, steady stare. It is by no means the little tots alone who grew nerv ous and fidgety when they 'become aware that an eye is riveted upon them. Perhaps the notion of an AU-Seelngr ojre was derived orig inally from this conception. SCIENCE OF STARING. - An investigation was recently under taken by the psychologists of Clark University to determine whether there is any "telepathic" occult or mysteri ous forces at work which make cgilldren and men and women conscious that they are the objects of staring. When you turn your head, suddenly aware that you are stared at, you, as well as the one under surveillance, are amazed if not flabbergasted. You are almost on the verge of believing that some unseen spiritual power has been at work. Yet it Is not so. What actually was discovered in the experiments upon several hundred sub jects who were thus exposed to the stern glances, apparently without their knowledge, was this: Fifty in each hundred were, totally oblivious to tho stead espionage. Of the fifty, who began to squirm and wriggle, exhibiting self-consciousness or fidgets, many were so naturally self conscious and vain that they had al ways a well-nigh pathological delusion that people were staring at or inspect ing them. The others who felt that they were looked at intently with eyes strained upon themselves were subjects whoso muscular sense was extraordinarily well developed, who were very aggres sive, active, mobile, and ever alert to each little movement and shadow or actively round about. Staring and Superstitions. In brief, the very type of individual who is keenly alive to his environment, who Is prepared for all emergencies, who in practical life anticipates thcr very contingencies which afterward arise, whose senses and tissues are sharply responsive to vibrations of air, ether and material things, are the very ones that know when they are subjected to a firm gaze. Much of the poetry as well as the nonsense associated with the beliefs or the efficacy of "staring" has been fos tered by supersitltions. traditions, and the other restricted logic of the thought less, though much educated, clvilizea man. The absurd beliefs of the "In- fluencef' of a so-called "evil eye." want of knowledge about hypnotism over snakes and wild beasts by "the steady gaze of the eye" all such untruths spread broadcast cind then accepted as facts by the sheer weight of -verbal repetition and the printing press arc in part responsible for the errors. To stare each other out of counte nance In only possible in persons woe fully wanting in a sense of humor and ethics. The etiquette of polite circles taboos all staring, while boys who glare at each other before a battle usually allow their spleen thus to peter out and fade away. The ancient belief that the stare in a murdered person's eye contains the por trait of the assassin is nonsensical. The eye cannot, either in life or death, main tain anv fixed picture of anything. In mucli the same unsubstantiated way we are told that an honest man will al ways look another straight in the eye, whereas the crook fails to do so- Like the other seven seas of rubbish, this has as much reality as a snap of the fingers. To stare into another's face until Ills or your eyes drop is a contest of wUls. in whicli the strongest i wins. Honor, morality, and honesty have nothinc to do with it. c'opvricht 1914.
