Despite the fact that a few un

their voices to tell us how to run
the world, the lesson has really been
learned by mankind In "the war that

carcass, which la the essence of
pacifism, has been repudiated by our
gallant soldiers, who loved honor
and duty and patriotism and right
eousness more than the prolongation
of their own existence.
We are In a mood to study about
Moses, ihe first patriot who dared to
strike a blow for the sake of the op
pressed. When Moses, palace-train
ed, but a Hebrew to the last drop
of his blood, saw an Egyptian smit
ing a Jewish slave, he did the na
tural, manly, and chivalrous thing,
and felled the tyrant with a blow.
Evledtnly, In his princely training.
Moses had not known the suffer
ings of his people. When first he
came face to face with the plight of
the poor, all his noble manhood
surged up In protest. The simple ex
planation for the continuance of
! many wrongs In the earth is that the
i exempt and favored few have not
really known or felt them. Wise with
the wisdom of Moses Is the young
man or woman who Invests his or
hat - life In the service of the unfor
tunate, and makes common cause
with the masses.,
Right at the outset Moses found
the disheartening condition which
ultimately drives every faddist and
shallow sentimentalist out of benev
olent activity. The persons whom
he sought to help did not appreci
ate him. When he intervened be
tween two quarreling Hebrews, they
scorned him and betrayed him as the
slayer of an Egyption taskmaster.
That was a hard blow for the pa
triotic ardor of the young reform
er. It was a bitter discovery. Many
persons have felt exempted from
further charitable service because
they have found that not all Bel
gians are grateful; that some Ar
menians are unworthy, that there
are tmposters among the Syrians;
that certain Ottoman Greeks are
capitalizing their misfortunes, that
the poor generally are unapprecia
tlve. This Is shallow thinking. If
help were to be given only to the
wholly worthy and thankful, phi
lanthropy and reform would cease.
"God is kind to the evil and the un
thankful." Moses, like most of us.
had a hard time learning how to be
patient with the provoking people
who did not deserve his service.
Knights For New Days
Our day has arrived at the Hoses
mood, of quick, hard blows at popu
lar evils. He rode forth righting
wrongs. His attitude toward all In
justice and oppression was that of
the knights of the new day. All the
world is waking up to the convic
tion that wrongs are not to be en
dured, but to be remedied. Patriot
ism expresses itself in fearless cham
pionship of all who suiter. We have
seen shining examples of zeal for
their own countrymen, and for the
universal liberty, by the Czechs and
Rumanians and Slavs who are In
exile from their homelands. They are
of the Moses type.
This passion for human rights,
which has made Moses a vital factor
in our own day, and caused his laws
to be the buttress and hope of lib
erty everywhere, has come to new
power since the war. Millions of
soldiers have had long, long
thoughts concerning it: for it is the
cause to which they devoted- their
lives. In the recent remarkable cel
ebration at Philadelphia of the sign
ing of a Declaration of Independence
by the Middle European nations,
when a new Liberty Bell was un
veiled, a Jewish speaker reminded
the people that the message of the
bell, and of the cause, came from
the law of Moses—"Proclaim Lib
erty throughout the land, and unto
all the inhabitants thereto." Nobody
can have an intelligent zeal for lib
erty without acknowedging his debt
to Moses.
Tranquility is no longer a goal
of life. Soldiers have taught us
that truth's tumult Is better thai}
error's ease. Moses would have
missed life had he remained In the
palace; ho achieved manhood and
succeed by striking a blow, an au
dacious, risky blow, for freedom. The
persons whose chief fear is that they
may be unpopular or uncomfortable
have not much standing In the world
to-day. Timorous shrinking from
criticism gets scant respect or con
sideration. In these timeß we award
all palms to the fearless champions
of conviction, who are willing to af
front tradition and if
only they may help make and keep
the world free. There are two classes
of people in the world: The few
who do things, and the many who
talk about those who do things. As
vre stand with Moses, God's lighting
man, let us learn the great lesson
of courage for righteousness" sake.
Into the Desert
British military railways now
thread the desert that stretches be
tween the palace home of Moses and
the tents of Horeb to which he fled
When he learned that he was known
as the slayer of the Egyptian. Dr
Ftnley made the flight in an aero
plane from Cairo to Jerusalem in
four hours. Ere these words are
printed I shall be well on my way
to Palestine, for a last look at Bible
times, before civilization effaces
Ihem forever. The desert and Its
splendid thought-compelling isola
tion is doomed. Instead, I suppose
we shall retreat for meditation to
the distant heights above the clouds.
It does seem as If a great desert
experience is essential to every man
with a great work to do. Moses was
sent off into this school of seelus on
deprivation and meditation. So was
John tha Baptist. So was Jesus. So
was Paul. There they all learned
how nonessential are most of the
things that civilization prizes; and
how essential are the things of the
spirit. A tent may be a more royal
abode than a palace-
France has been, in some respects,
a desert of for our sol
diers. They have learned In the
army that a man's life consists not
in the things ho possesses. There
existence has been stripped to the
efleifientals for them. They have
achieved their sublimcst heights
without any of tbfe comforts of home
or conventional living. Luxuries or
even conveniences are not essential
to great living.
The First Lesson From the Trenches
Nolan Rlbe Best, editor of The
Continent, returned from France
with this sense of superiority to
hardship as his first Impression. "No
man Is yet a free soul who imagines
thut he has to be comfortabre in or
der to be happy. To millions of
Americans the recpnt war has
brought the blessing of deliverance
from that illusion. They have learn
ed how possible It is to be happy
though Inconvenienced.
From painless barracks, sheet
less cots and llnenless mess halls on
this side of the Atlantic, our sol
diers have passed to three-layer
bunks and swing-shelf tables packed
with suffocating space economy Into
the holds of ocean transports bound
for France. Landed on the other
side of the ocean, they have learned
fresh lessons In scaling down life's
necessities ns they tramped inter
minable distances under Enormous
pack loads along Btony highways,
rode farther yet by rail in freight
cars shared often with their battery
horses, took both the beat of the
sun apd the drench of the clouds
without protection from either; and

,ten;fs camped la UWJJBBII flelds. now

smothered with dust and again sub
merged In liquid mud.
"Still beyond all-this they came
to their weeks and weeks of trench
duty, where even a dream of clean
liness was possible only in wild de
lirium, where escaping the Intimate
company of vermin was a far great
er miracle than escaping the shell
fire of the Hun, and where the acme
of good fortune and luxury was a
chance to squat on the earth floor
of some Stygian dugout and eat'one's
dinner of 'slum and spuds' out of a
battered tin pan.
"Counting out battle' risks alto
gether, and all the hldeousness of
mortal conflict, man to man, it yet
remains true that war relentlessly
stripped from these flne-grained and
finely nurtured young Americans
practically every shred of outward
amenities which had been supposed
to constitute the peculiar boons of
civilization.
"But did these young gallants find
life intolerable when its facile con
veniences and its pleasant indul
gences thus disappeared?
"Entirely otherwise; life under
these sterile conditions daily took
on for them ampler meaning as its
rinds were husked oft and they came
nearer and nearer to the core of it.
"They found themselves happiest
when they possessed least.
"Most of all, this wartime experi
ment in defying obnoxious circum
stances will afford men new cour
age to disdain an unfriendly world
warring against tholr consciences.

Paradoxically, tlis lonely places
are crowded with the loftiest
thoughts. All desert peoples are
philosophical. Dwellers In the far
spaces, the seas and the sands, have
time to think about the greatest
themes. Moses acquired the high
art of meditation, which is more
valuable than any of the mysteries
of Egypt, during his long years of
sojourns as a shepherd on the Sinai
Peninsula. He developed an inquir
ing mind, the shepherd's oivok is
but an elongated question mark. So
when he saw a bush aflame a* turn
ed aside to see the great slagi Some
stodgy brains that we e 1 know
would never have looke-i °wice for
the meaning of the m~ -vel. Mrs.
Browning's familiar lines tnust be
quoted:
"Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every oommon bush afire with
God:
But only he who sees, takes off his
shoes,
The rest sit round it and pluck
blackberries."
Everything in Ufa hangs on "If"
hooks. If Moses had not been alert
and of an Investigating turn he
would never have heard the Voice
In the bush calling his own name.
Lo, it was Jehovah, revealing Him
self to this doubly-drilled deliverer,
trained In Egypt's face, the shep-'
herd-statesman heard his own com
mission to save tfte Hebrew* from
Pharaoh. God accredited Himself as
the covenant keeping One—which
should have been credentials suf
ficient for Moses, too.
"I can stand anything that any
body else can stand, and I can do
anything that anybody else can do,"
quietly said a traveler to a friend,
in explanation of his success in
overcoming hardships. Mose* lacked
this confidence; but he became dis
loyal when he distracted God. When
the Lord says "Go" it Is no time to
respona, "Who ttn I?" The only
answer *o sucb a command is the
first made b Moses, "Here am I."
God's g-oatest servants have ever
been those who developed the habit
of saying, "Here am I" to His calls
—even when they are a summons
bac kfrom the bushes and desort to
the palaces of Pharaoh.
"If by'a still small voloe He calls.
To paths that I do not know,
I'll answer, 'Dear Lord, with my
hand In Thine,
I'll go where you want me to go.' "
A Shepherd's Dud With a King
Equipped by his providential ex
periences, and by Tils call, Moses re
luctantly—too reluctantly—assumed
the task of leader of Israel, to de
liver thepi out of captivity. His
long conflict with Pharaoh, until by
the argument of tho plagues he won
at last, are told in the Lesson Text
One of the wonders of the conflict
was the simple fact that a shepherd
from tho desert was arrayed a.?alnst

God seems to lead us a long way
around to our dearest goals, perhaps
to teach us to know our Guide.
Forlorn as was the cause of Moses
and his enslaved countrymen. It
nevertheless won. We are living In
