The Mapic of a Vision Born of an Age-Old Desire To Have and to Hold By VICTOR MURDOCK, Letter In Harper's Magaiine. sovereignty, horuestending, of a vat army of the vigorous vanguard of the race, moved mightily forward not by necessity or by hopa of wealth, but by the vision that is horn of traditional desire and commands men not to the measure of dollars and cents, but to the throbbing drumbeat of a mighty instinct of dominion. It will not respond to tho direction of sentiment, nor can adventure lure or necessity drive it. I know the oeta paint for the pioneer a picture with warmth of sun, the scent of flowers, the caress of gentle winds, the fragrance of new mown hay, the stimulation of rain upon a dusty field, the song of birds, the satisfaction of achievement, the comforts of earned repose, but I doubt the efficacy of the advertisement. I know that the economist! balance birth rate ai'ninst available land areaa and graph population pressures to prove that necessity is in command. But it ia not so. The pioneer is moved by something more than economic necessity, greater than adventure, dei p'r than poetry, that is to say, he is possessed by the magic of a vision boru of an age-old desire to have and to hold. The echo of it trembled in Touchstone's nimUe brain, as he sur veyed and presented Audrey: "An ill-favored thing, sir. But mine own!" Mr. Hallet and Ernest Johnson havo returned to Indiana, after spending a few daya with their father, Caleb Johnson, who is some better at this writing. Blue Lick Blue Lick, Oct 9.

Hunt, of Berea,' gave an inspiring talk on the "Hu manity of Jesus." A fatal malady has attacked the dog kennels of T. J. Flannery. Diana, one of his prize hounds, has passed away and others very sick barely able to sit up and take nourishment Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Rallinger, of Wildie, are temporarily at the bridge while their new house is under construction. If The Citi zen were to announce a new planet had left its orbit and waa plunging thru apace earthward threatening destruction, no greater consternation would have prevailed than when a woman of this community, noted for civic inertia and an ind fference in political issues, has proclaimed her self a cardidate for Congress. Not, however, with the hope of being elect ed but for the sole purpose of con vincing men that female suffrage has strengthened her attitude in claiming equal privileges with the men. A most laudable purpcre, truly. Another aa tounding movem"nt contrary to prec edent haa been demonstrated by thoaa who have long been deaf to the sum mons of the "clear ringing bell." and rilvertoned chimea have at last been aroused to the inestimable value of Berea College and its superior ad vantages in teaching high principles that make for cl"an government and strong character and are Ben 3 ng their boya and girls to school.

' RESISTED SOVIET DECREES Correspondent Deseribss Trial and Execution as Rsd Page In History of Modern Russia Confiscation of Church Treasures la Cause of Trouble Witnesses Who Came to Give Evidence for Accused Are Ar rested Frienda Are Shut Out The trlii I and execution of Arch bishop lleojHmin, metropolitan of I'etrotsrad, Is a red page in the history of modern Kussla. It Is not every diijr Unit sn arclitilshup Is haled to prison, tried as a criminal and shot aa a con vict. 1 was, so fur as 1 am aware, the only foreign writer In Petrograd at the time of the trial. Here la the story as I learned and saw It, writes F. A. .Mackenzie lo the Chicago Dally News : The archbishop and a large number of his advisers and supporters were nrrested In May. and brought to open trial In the hnll of the old Nobles' club lu Petrograd, the trial starting on June 11. AinoiiK the prisoners were the arch niiiiidrile Sergei, the bishop of Kron stuclt. the deans of Petrorad's three cathedrals, St. Isaac's, Kazan and the TroliMky, prof. Novltsky, a famous lawyer and chairman of the church council, the Hev. Prof. Ognieff Shein, a former member of the duma, and some three-score others. Altogether as clls tliiKiilxhed a group of men as you could find, even In Petrograd, the Intel lectual capital of Russia. Resisted Decrees of 8ovfet The prisoners had conspired to re sist the decrees of the soviet povern ment. When the suthorltles Informed Monsljwleur Renjnmln that the church treimures were to he taken for famine relief he replied In a formal docu ment In which he asked three things, (1) proof that the money could not he raised In any other way, (2) guar antee that the money should not be used for any other purpose than fam ine relief, anil (3) that the consent of the patriarch In Moscow should be obtained. He added to his offense by at once publishing this doctimeot. He was summoned to the Smolny In stitute, the headquarters of the Mos cow soviet, tie came attended by his counsel. He withdrew his first and third points, but clung to the second. "Give us assurances that our money will really go for famine relief." he Insisted. On his return home be Issued still another appeal to the people. Let me describe what followed In the words of one of his bolshevlst ac cusers. "As a result of this, a restless moh demonstrated on March W at the Kazan cathedral, a mob beat the mili tia In Sennava street on March 16. and the soldiers had to he called out. Stones were thrown at the soldiers at the church of Rozhdestvo on April 14. there being alarm, violence and moh rule, the mob also throwing stones at the officials who were col lecting the church treasures. Similar violence took place at the Putllov Zas tavn April 27 and on May 4." The Putllov Zastnva Is In the midst of one- of the greatest working-class districts In Petrograd. so perhaps the authorities had some cause for alarm. Trial Before Tribunal. The trial "sated for nearly a month, not ending untfl early July. The au thorities attempted to prove that Ben jamin and his supporters were really antlrevolutlonurlea, that they were In touch with the antiholshevlsta outside Russia who had summoned the Ksrls berg conference, and that they were plotting to overthrow the government The chief Judue of the-revolutionary tribunal was Nakovcheoko, a techni cal engineer. Tt was a weurlsome trlnl. The great audiences that listened day after day were carefully drawn from the fac tories and government offices. Few of the friends of the prisoners could ob tain admission. So they assembled outside, ami when the prisoners were hrnuirht In each morning and left each nleht they found crowds of churchmen sinking hymns, praying and asking, their blessing. One night cavalry made their appearance, surrounded every way out. and made prisoners of all the crowd. Reform Priest Hit by 8tone. There were some dramatic momenta. On the opening day wh?n one reform priest, Vedensky. was leaving the court, a woman threw atone, struck him on the head and nearly killed him. Vedensky was supposed falsely, as he afterward assured me to have In stlcaled the trial of the archbishop. Three witnesses had come to give evidence In favor of the prisoners. They were then arrested. The friends of the prisoners complained that this so shook the nerves of the other wit nesses ttiHt they could am say what they would. The tribunal waa not sympathetic to the accused. When It considered that It had heurd enough. It refused to hear more. It refused them the rlnhi lo consult certain uia terlal d' unit nls they demanded. At lust the ordeal drew to a rloae. The hour had come for the accused to say their lust words. One after the other arose to disclaim the charge of having plotted against the government. Their action, they declared, had heeo dictated hy a sense of religious duty. They spoke quietly, without gesture or emotion, as men who had already abandoned all hoe upon earth and made their peace with their Hod. Archbishop Mskte Plea. It came the arrhhlslmp'a turn. Rearded, dressed In his ecclesiastical garments, he stood alone, farina the court. "Five yenra ago," said he, "I waa chosen archbishop because all the workers and the poor loved me. They loved me because I loved snd worked for the poor and the stsrvlng. I am no politician. What I did was be cause It wss my duty to my God and the church." He went on to tell how some time before, the government had called upon him to visit revolting dis tricts and calm the people's mind. He did so, and the revolt had ceased. "If I am sent to my death." he said sim ply. "I will take It that It la God's will." tils final wonts were apoken very quietly, but they seemed to penetrate every corner of the great hal, Even the fiercely hostile audience was mo mentarily, quieted. "Roshla volla Ja omrn knk Chrlstlsnlm." "If It la Hod s will that I die, I shall die aa a real Christian." On the following evening the sen fences were passed. Every care hart been taken to secure the right audi ence. The relatives of the prisoners sat near the front. The rest of the hall was crowded with members of the communist party, for on this oe csslon tickets of membership of the pnrty were sufficient to secure ad mission. Every ticket was so care fully scrutinized, however, that It was not possible to start the proceedings, timed for half past all, until eight o'clock. Death and Imprisonment It was a typical Petrograd summer evening. The city was aa light as at noon. Heavy forces of troop were all around the hnll, to prevent any possible disturbance, and. sentries gruffly ordered loiterers to hurry on. Nakovrhenko and his colleagues of the tribunal entered, and the entire assembly stood. He read the Judg ment. When he came to the decisive part, condemning the archbishop and nine others to death, a roar of tri umph burst from the crowd. As It died down, you could hear the sobs of two women, relatives of the pris oners. Fifty-three were sentenced to long terms of Imprisonment The pris oners made the sign of the cross. The trlnl was over. Later, It was derided to shoot only four, the archbishop, Shein, Novitzky and another lawyer, Kovsharov. Next day the churches and cathe drals of Petrograd were unusually full of women, praying and weeping. I noted them kneeling upon the cold, damp stones of St. Isaac'a cathedral. Fronting them shone St. Isaac'a won derful windowed picture of the Christ, with scarlet robe, bared breast, and pierced, naked feet. He aeemed to be looking pitifully down on them. WAR ON MOONSHINERS Slip of a Girl Works Alone and Many Have Fled. The "girl avenger." aa she Is now known to the entire state of Missis sippi, has tallied another victim. Moonshine whisky making, once the chief secondary Industry of the for est regions of Tate and Marshall coun ties, haa recently appeared destined to be numbered among the lost arts.

SIGHT SUDDENLY RETURNS Girl Bees Again After a Blindness ef Daya. Aa sudden' as her sight went It re turned the other night for Margaret Wlsler, nineteen yeara of age, of Nor rlstown. Pa. When her niece entered the room Miss Wlsler said, "She haa on a brown and plaid dress," which waa true. Because she had not aeen for ten daya her people thought ahe waa de lirious and summoned a physician, but he found that sight had been restored.
