Hon. Oscar Straus Speak;
Restoration of Jews ir
The large and representative
dience at the Church of Atone
last night enjoyed a talk from
Oscar Straus on the subject ol
restoration of Palestine to the
as their national home, that ga
clear and illuminating insight int
ideals of the Zionist movement,
of what its accomplishment will i
to the world at large, as well as ti
He began his talk by speakin
the coming of the Pilgrim Fathei
America; of the desire for relig
and national freedom, that bro
them here, and of the analogy
tween their spirit and that of the !
ists,who seek religious and nati
freedom in a land that will be t
The Pilgrim Fathers, said the si
er, founded a democratic and nat
al home here, but this did not in
fere with the rights of others ?
wished to remain in their own cc
tries; and so, to establish a natic
home in Palestine, will be to estab
a national home only, for those y
?desire to go there, and especially
those not enjoying political and i
pious freedom in their own countr
Those who prefer to stay where
are can remain patriotic citiz
there. This is a point often misc
strued by both Jews and Gentiles.
Outstanding Features of the Wi
The speaker quoted Lord Rob
Cecil who said in a recent addr
that the two great outstanding f
tures resulting from the war, w<
. first, the establishment of a natio;
Jewish home in Palestine and seco]
the League of Nations.
Why this importance of so smal
country? Because from this land
prophets and seers has come to t
world its spiritua 1 foundation, t
basis of its law and order; its hop
and aspirations. From this land h
come the Mother and Daughter
all religion-Judaism the mother, ai
Christianity the daughter. Unhappi
this mother and daughter have n
always been in accord, but our hear
interpret more and more the tn
spirit of the two religions, they w
come closer together. For this reas(
Zionism appeals to the idealis
among Jews and Christians.
An Unconquerable Spirit.
Mr. Straus went on to say th!
though this land of Palestine has bee
d?vasted by Greece, Rome, Babylc
and Turkey, and the Jewish natio
.^ggattered t? the four corners qf tli
/ globe, jf?i only the land has bee
conquered, but never the spirit of th
Jewish people. Still, wherever the
Jhe scattered they preserve the spiri
and ideals of their religion.
Lord Arthur Balfour made a:
epoch making declaration in statin;
that England viewed with favor th
establishment in Palestine of a na
tional home for the Jewish people
^nd promising assistance in this es
' tablishment, wherever it does not in
terfere with the rights of the non
Jewish residents of Palestine.
For centuries Palestine was the na
tional home of the Jews, but ever
then many lived in other countries'
, sonow, among the fourteen millior
?Jews in the world, many may desire
to remain where they ?r?, and wher
ever they are, they have full chance
to display their idealism.
Israel has given the Worlds its
ideal of the unity of God, the broth
erhood, of ;nan, the principles of so
cial justice, the ideals of democracy,
and the hope of international peace.
What the Restoration means.
The restoration to the Jews of Pal
estine as a national home will bring
there people from all parts of the
world, who will prove a blessing to
the entire country. General Allenby,
when in Palestine said that prophecies
were being fulfilled before his very
eyes and being transformed into his
Mr. Straus told of the founding of
the Agricultural College in Palestine
fifteen years ago, by Aaron Aronson,
who made the great discovery of the
origin of wheat in the rocks of He
bron and there has so increased the
wheat producing areas.
"So not only do spiritual ideas
come from Palestine but the main
-staff of life."
The new high commissioner, Sir
Hubert Samuel, will pursue a most
liberal policy toward Palestine, which
is under England's mandate. Only
two days ago, said Mr. Straus, he re
ceived a personal letter from Sir Hu
bert in Jerusalem, who said that the
political difficulties before him were
not small owing to the fact that it
was difficult to create a house for a
people not yet there.
* But of the 600,000 people in Pales
tine, 15 per cent are Jewish, less are
Christians and the remainder are
IArabs, who follow Mahomet. So, the
establishment of government in Pal
estine will be a blessing to the whole
?country, now under the blight of Mo
hammedanism since 1493, and will
bring peace and content to the coun
try. Another extract from Sir Hu
bert's letter told of the good financial
condition and of the prospects of
good harvests this year.
Dr. Dorset on Zionism.
At the conclusion of Mr. Straus'
talk the choir of the church sang an
anthem "The Lord is My Strength,"
and Dr. Dorset announced that next
Sunday night being Palm Sunday, he
would preach on Zionism as a most
At the conclusion of the service
many went up to speak to Mr. Straus
and express their enjoyment of his
talk last night-Augusta Chronicle.
Feed Some Cottonseed Meal
With the Corn.
While corn is cheap when sold by
the Corn Belt farmer, it becomes ex
pensive when purchased and fed on
the Southern cotton farm.
A bushel of corn is about equal to
two bushels of oats. That is, when
corn costs a $1 * bushel laid down
on the Southern farm it is about'as
cheap as 50 cents a bushel for oats.
This makes corn the cheaper feed in
the South as a general rule. But if
grass hay is fed and no feed rich in
protein, like cottonseed meal, is used;
that is, just corn and grass hay or
corn and corn fodder, we would pre
fer the oats at 50 cents a bushel to
corn at $1 a bushel. If, on the other
hand, legume hays are used, of if
about one part by weight of cotton
seed meal is used with six parts of
corn, the corn will prove the cheaper
But if com and grass hay or corn
and corn foddor are used, it will very
much improve the feed and at least
four pounds less corn may be fed
daily per horse or mule, if two pounds
of cottonseed meal is fed.-Progres
Riding on a street car,
. Hanging to a strap,
A young lady met with
Quite a mishap.
The hand she was holding with
Had her kerchief in her sleeve,
Suddenly she decided
That hand to relieve.
Her handkerchief dropped out
On a gentleman's lap,
As he sat there taking
A quiet little nap.
She made no attempt at
Trying to remove it,
The position it was in
Did not approve it.
The passengers all laughed at
The kerchief on his pants,
rheir laughing woke him up
And around he did glance.
Their mirth for a while his
Attention did divert, . ?'
Then looking down he saw it
And thought it was his shirt.
He had in his hand a . -
Paper by chance
He covered his lap with this and
Stuffed the kerchief in his pants.
When the passengers saw this
They certainly did roar;
A.nd at this the man got
Indeed very sore. ^; y
i\nd although his home
Was yet quite far, ,
He signaled the conductor ' r
And got off the car.
A.nd for another car
He did have to wait,
When it did come along
It was one hour late.
His wife wanted to know
How come this about;
He said "I missed the car,
I ought to look out."
He thought he had it settled
But there was yet more,
For when he pulled off his pants
The kerchief dropped to the floor.
His wife was looking and
When this she "spied,
She said "0 you villain,
To me you have lied."
"That handkerchief belongs
To some other girl,
I will never believe you
Any more in the world."
This mystery he could not
For the moment explain,
How could he ever his
Wife's confidence gain.
He thought how it happened,
How he was deceived;
But how could he prove it,
And have it believed.
This man though a gentleman,
With an honest face,
As a joror refuses to
Convict in a case
Where all the evidence shown
Is merely circumstantial,
And he cites his personal experience
As a reason substantial.

DESIRED TO TAKE THE VEIL
Oldest Daughter of Thomas Jefferson
Attracted by Quiet Life Within
""N-T*^ Convent Walls,
Martha Jefferson, oldest daughter
of Thomas Jefferson, third President
of .the United States, came near to be
ing a catholic sister. She was a stu
dent at the school of Abbaye de Pan
themont at the time the French Revo
lution was In progress. The daring
and flippant Infidelity of the French
frightened and disgusted her, and she
clung to the calm and serene life of
the convent with all her strength. Her
mother had taught her in the ways
of the Church of England, but the sur
roundings at the school overreached
this, and she decided to become a
nun* '.K&pw?fTfi'.N^ k^
She wrote to her father asking his
permission to adopt the veil. No
answer came for several days, and
then Jefferson appeared In person.
He greeted the girl with a tender
smile, interviewed the abbess, and
then came out and told the girl to
pack her things. Her school life
was ended at that moment, and the
next day she was Introduced to so
ciety and made the mistress of her
father's household. She declared years
afterward that neither she nor her
father had ever alluded to the sub
