ATTENDANCE IS NEARING I,O<M» MARK With an attendance of 980 at the Stevens Memorial Methodist Episcopal Sunday School yesterday all previous records of attendance at this school were broken.

The organized men's Bible class has grown to such : proportions that the space allotted it ! in the school has become too small. PATRIOTISM MAY COST LIFE i.

Here it is: Once upon a time a beautiful cherry tree grew in an orchard of Old Vir ginia, and although it was small it had once been even smaller, for it used to tell all the other trees round about this story: "Onfc day," it always began, "I was a big red cherry lying on the ground all tempting and ripe and sweet and juicy. A little boy with golden curls, smiling face, and straight limbs came along. I think he must have been only two or three years old, for he could scarcely toddle. First thing I knew he had picked me up, and I saw a smile spread over his baby face; then before I knew what had hap pened the reddest sort of lips opened and I was thrust into a deep cave. All the juicy part of me was bitten off and went down a long dark hall way—where it landed I never could find out; but my seed, the only live thing about me, the little boy took out of his mouth and looked at it. Then sitting down on the ground, he started playing with the dirt, and be fore I knew it, he had stuck me way down into the earth with his chubby little fingers." "And then what happemd " asked the .other trees, for they always loved to hear this story from the little tree. "Well. I thought I was done for," the little tree would continue, "byt good old Mother Earth took care of me; the little leaves pitied me and made me a patch work quilt; King Winter laid a snow blanket over me; and the next Spring when the rains came I felt a queer feeling stirring in side me. I burst that seed. I pushed and pushed; I stuck out my nose and here I was! You all know the rest. I often wonder whether the little fel low they call George who plays In dian around here with a little hatchet, is not the baby grown older who stuck my seed into the earth and gave me new life?" Thus the trees chatted and swayed and swayed and chatted in the Vir ginia orchard, while a little boy In Knickerbockers ran in and out among them, playing his childish games. Every now and then the boy's father came to see how his orchard grew, and one day he noticed the little cherry tree growing in such a queer spot, and seeing it was a straight beautiful tree he loved it better than all the trees of his orchard, so often bringing his small son he sat under its low branches. There he told him stor |ics of men, gTeat and brave and true men who knew how to tell the truth and how to be brave even when it was hard. And as little George listened, the little tree also heard, and' learned to love the father, and the tfuth and the stories of brave men who dared to do right. One day, however, the little boy came to the orchard in his play, and was full of fire and war—and boyhood (which is just manhood not grown up)—and the little tree saw he was hunting for something to do which looked BIG. Suddenly he' spied the poor little tree. "Ha! ha!" said he. "The very thing! I'll chop this down, and show how strong I am." So although the little tree tried hard to plead for its life, although it tried hard to tell George what nice cherries it could give him in a few years—he started in. "Chip" went the little hatchet, and "chip" again; "chop"] sounded the strokes, and "chop" again: never did George stop until the poor little tree, quivering with fright lay on the ground. Just then the little bojt's father came into the orchard. "Who chopped my cherry tree?" asked he. And the little tree breath ing its last could scarcely believe this was th# same kind man who had sat under its low branches fondling his son, who stood there glowering above him. "If I can find the fellow who did this thing," said he, "I'll punish him severely, and there was fight in his eye. and strength in his arm. "I wonder what little George will do?" thought the dying tree. "I hope he will not lie." And although It was dying, it tried to whisper: "Kemem ber the stories we heard on this spot, little George!" Whether the child heard or not, I do not know. But I do know that he stood right up, and It seemed to the little tree he was almost as big and strong and brave looking as his father. He stood up and facing the angry man, said: "FATHER. I f'AXSOT TELL. A LIE! I DID IT WITH MY LITTLE HATCHET." As the cherry tree breathed Its last, a strong man held in his arms a little soldier—-a boy who dared to do right, and tell the truth even If he should suffer for It. And the little cherry tree was happy even although It could never grow up. And was this the end of the tree that never grew up ? I do not know—but I love to think that after the stars came twinkling into the blue sky, a little boy crawled out of a house, and cut a tender twig from the dead body of a little tree— FEBRUARY 22, 1915.
