Wednesday was "Donation Day" in Cleveland, and young and
old responded liberally to the call to remember the people of
that big city who were in distress for lack of food or clothing.
As a result, over twenty thousand dollars was raised.
Such a movement as that started and carried out in Cleveland
is significant. As a rule, the big cities are cold and the people
are more or less selfish. They seldom launch a general big phil
anthropic movement in which the people in every walk of life
participate, but this was done in Cleveland. Millionaires, school
children, working men, manufacturers and clerks, all assisted
in the laudable movement.
Such a spirit of co-operation works wonders.. It is not merely
the raising of money, but it is the general response from the
people of all walks of life that is impressive. It brings them to
gether into a closer relationship. It breaks down the barriers
of distrust and envy. It emphasizes the spirit that comes from
the heart, unselfish and generous.
There is a great deal of tact required in assisting the less for-:
tunate ones. Charity is cold unless it comes with sympathy and
friendliness. A man or woman resents assistance when it is
. given mechanically and coldly. In Medina County the Humane
Society is now entering upon its winter work and it is looking
forward confidently to the generous and sympathetic support of
the people. One of the reasons for the success of the work of
the Medina County Humane Society is that there has been a
tactful, sympathetic policy carried out in relieving distress
among its less-fortunate people. ' That is one of the reasons why
it has been so successful and why it has gained the confidence
of the people. In the days that precede the Christmas season
the purse strings should be loosened and the heart beat in sym
pathy with the worthy movements to have the spirit of peace on
earth good will towards men in the heart of every person.
Probably the most perfect anomaly ever known is presented
in the person of General Villa. A born bandit and, as generally
believed, a cutthroat, nevertheless he has exhibited wisdom and
. humanity in no small degree at times when most men of his type
would have plundered and killed, and above all he has shown
but little if any overstrained ambition for personal political pre
ferment. The arrival of his troops in eMxico City as well as
those of Gen. Zapata, the fore part'of this week, was followed by
comparative calm, after one of the most trying weeks , in the
city's history. Gen. Villa has given every guarantee that life
and property will be safeguarded and thus far his promises have
been carried out. Bandit or not, this rugged old mountain
chieftan has been showing qualities of leadership and statesman
ship that are well calculated to place him with respect to con
ditions in Mexico in a very favorable position in the eyes of
As the Christmas season approaches, how marvelous is the
influence by which the spirit of the time moves the hearts of men
lo joyful and generous impulses. It seems as if at this era of the
year an unseen angel touches the invisible spring of an unused
door in normal human nature and floods them with gladness and
sunshine. What a world of generous endeavour and what a
summertime of happiness is awhirl around us. Those whom
Providence has prospered are busy with their loving devices to
make home happy ; to crown the waning year with goodness ; to
reward fidelity, patience and love; to reap the joys that flock
into the Christmas season like homing doves from afar circling
light. Let us appreciate Christmas. An appreciative Christ
mas will rule the baseness, rudness, roughness but of any life.
Coloned Roosevelt declared in several speeches that he would
never go back to the Republican party. The November election
result makes it equally clear that there will be no olive branches
extended from the other end of the line.
The vesper service given by the

Miss Olive Leister, pianist and alto;
Mr. John Waltz, bass of Cleveland
and Mrs. Raymond Long, soprano and

THE MAN BEHIND THE PLOW
They sing about the glories of the
man behind the gun,
And the books are full of stories of
the wonders he has'done; !
There's something sort of thri'lin' in
the flag that's wavin' high,
And it makes you want . to holler
when the boys go marchin' by;
But when the shoutin's over and the
fightin's done, somehow,
We find we'ra still depending on the
man behind the plow.
In til the pomp and splendor of an
. army on parade,
And through the awful darkness that
the smoke of battle's made;
In the halls where jewels glitter and
where shoutin' men debate;.
In the palaces where rulers deal out
honors to the great,
There i3 not a single person who'd b
doin' business now (
Or have medals if it wasn't for the
man behind the plow.
We're a buildin' mighty cities and
we re galmn' lofty heights.
We're a-winnin' lots' of glory and
we're settin' things to rights;
We're a-showin' all creation how the
world's affairs should run;
Future menll gaze in wonder at the
tilings that we have done,
And they'll overlook the feller, just
, ' , the same as they do now, 'i
Who's the whole concern's foundation,
that's the man behind the plow, ,

saloons, and a population of approx
imately 1,200. During the past fif
teen years buildings have become di
lapidated, houses emptied, one store
has replaced a score, the postofllce

inhabitants are now on a rural deliv

- Thanksgiving day is past, but how
would it be to sprinkle a little grat

by. the way, we had a Thanksgiving
letter for the Sentinel but the "other
fellow" carried it in his hip pocket
until too late for publication and we
feel just a little bit sore about it but
we think the wound will heal.
