Two Kinds There two kinda of people on earth tela 7; Just two kinds of people, no more, I aajr. Not the tinner ard saint, for, 'tis well understood The (rood are half bad and the bad are half good. Not the rich and the poor, for, to count a man's wealth, You must first know the state of his conscience and health; Not the hamble and p-oud, for, in life's little span, Who puts on vain airs is not counUd a man. Not the happy and sad, for the swift flyirg years Rring each man his laughter and each man his tears. No, the two kinds of people on earth that I mean Are the people who lift and the people wl.o lean. Wl errver you go you will find the world's masses A-e always divided in just these two clauses; And, oddly erough, you will find, too, I ween, There ia only one lifter to twenty who lean. In which class are you? Are you eaaing the load Of overtaied lifters who toil down the road? Or are you a leaner, who lets others hear Your portion of labor snd worry and care? Henry F. I.yman-Wheaton in The Christian Herald. Ambassador Child's Statement (National Republican) In general Mr. Child, official obrerver for the United States, base hia atatmrnt to the Lausanne conference of the American attitude toward the question of the atraits upon the doctrine of the open dor. That serves well so far aa commerce is concerned, but is more difficult to apply to the passage of ih'ps of war. His argument against the neutralization of the Black sea is thereforo otherwise baaed. No nation, he decla-es, ia more ready thsn the Urited States to uphold the need of maintaining a naval force t art aa police to protect American citizens, as was recently shown In the Near F-aft. Shipe ef war, he urges, are "not necessarily agents of de struction," and he adds, "We want access to eve-y free body of water In the world, and the United States is not going to be satis fied unless Amrricsn wan hips are allowed to pursue their peace ful errands wherever American citizens and American mercharit ships may go." The benevolent spirit shown by the United States navy in Near Eastern waters is beyond question, yet the general principle enunciated here is of rathe ataggering breadth. All nations may aend commercial vessels into the Crest lakes, from Ortario to Superior is it to be inferred that whe-e the'r citizens and their merchant shirs msy go they have an Indisputable right to aend ships of wsr for protection? Ce-tainly Mr. Child would aot admit that; he will have to explain therefore why the Unitel Statea has a right to demand that the R'ack aea should not be given a status similar to that of the Great Lakes. Innocent as may be the errands of American wa-ships, not al naval operations are so peaceful and humanitarian in character. It is stated in London that if Russ a build un its naval atrengtn In the Rlark aea. Great Britain will ask the United States to ea'l another Washington conference to deal with th;s question. But to such conference Ruiaia would have to be invited, and if Rus sia should show thnt its nsval plara resulted directly from tho admlxaion to the Rlack sea of the warships of all nations it logic might be difficult to meet. For it ran hardly be contended that the ma!n function of sh'ps of war Ib rescuing refugees, or that the admission of sea power to a basin from which navies have long been excluded msy nut call for defensive measures by th ritarisn statea. Mr. Child in his rtatement may have committed the United States more deeply against the demilitarization of nearly landlocked seaa than was quite prucVnt at this time. A CHRISTMAS GREETING On this Pay of Remembrance, made beautiful by every holy memory thai Life has woven into the human heart, there ia nothing so precious as the recollection of dear ones whose loyil Friendship has filled the world wUh melody and fragrance, and set a star above the night of every sorrow. "Merry Christmas" is the one salute that b-ings response from the univer sal mother-tongue. It stirs within us the purest affection, the moat beauti ful aspiration, the most abiding sense of possession. It makes us all mem bers of one unbroken family circle arourd Christmas Tree that sym bolizes the hope of the world, the conque'ing joy of the uplifted fou., the realization of every noble dream. May thia be the beat Chriatmaa ynj hrve ever had, O Friend, wherever you are. May it be filled with peace snd serenity and satisfaction, with songs from sunlit heights, with voice an J vision of ete-nal things, witn win nowing wings that soar ard sift the darkness from the day. My heart will hold you close thia day in every hope and every prayer. God's Love be with you to make you glad ani sure. And love of Friends be with you, to warm your heart and shut yoj in with every human treasure. Christmas brings us, too, a renewed tenia of the permanence of things of tha eternal meanings back of hu man actions, and lift ua Into com munlon with the spirit of patience and fortitude. Life weart a hue of Nobility aa wt unde-stand how every human pattern ia woven into the fab ric of divinity. We forget Incidents and think in terms of completion. We tee the purpose of God working thru the agonies of mankind for the upbuilding of Hit Kingdom in the Soula of Men. To truly celebrate Christmas we must have the wisdom of simplicity; the wisdom of the quiet heat and the contented mind. We must be Christmas lovers; Christmas givers: Christmas hopers. George Santay ana has given the recipe for this nr. bier livirg: "All that Is requisite is that we should pause to enjoy life and should lift op our hearts to th'ngs that are pure good in them selves, ro that once to have found and loved them, whatever else may betide, may be a happiness that noth Irp can sury." ZTo ur Jfrienfce anfc Iftatrons LAST CIIRISTMAS I fe-git most everything Christmas brought to me All the gifts that hung in rows On the shin'n' tree; Dust has gathered on the toys. Rooks is all unread. Can't remember what I got, Or what I was fed. Rut I got one memory Shines as clear tcday In my hea-t as if it waa Only yesterday. Coin' down the street alone, Walkin' kinda alow, My old heart was softened up When you yelled: "Hullo!" OUR BEST CHRISTMAS Madison County is expecting the best Christmas it has ever known cne unmarred hy rowdiness, drunken- k fs and murder. A good many of our dangerous characters a-e safe in jail or under bonds. Our Christmas "doings" in the school-houses a-e so promising that the boys who have known no joy but whisky are finding excitement in better things. And the general feeling of good-will it all pervasive.

Th's rives time to celebrate Christmas and New Years daya, an I to have a "heap" of fun. But the big thing to do thia vara t:cn time is to get up a lot of fire wood so that mother will not have to go out before breakfast cold January mornings to pick up wet chips for her fire. Make a shelter and fill it with good dry wood. Old George Wither had the right Idea: Without the door let sorrow lie; And if for co'd it hap to die, We'll bury it in Ch-istmat pie, And evermore be merry.

Hostility of chuThes and parenta to the play spirit ia alienating young folk from the rural chu-ch and home and creat ing bitter opposition or indifference to many of tho most sacred Ameri can institutions. Prof. John F. Smith of Berea College, Ky., said in an ad dress before the American Country Life Association. "People of the open count-y,H he declared, "need instruction in the art of providing abundant, wholesome recreation for themselves and their child-en. The place where the first step is taken ty those who prove tu be great leaders in social and eco nomic movements it on the play grounds." Condemning the "sunup to r.ir down" workday in the rural rections, Professor Smith suggested that he association should launch a campaign for shorter working hourt, play craft and community spirit in the country. A study of the habits of people of the count-y, be said, showed w r"c rpread opposition to group gather ings whose chief purpose was f'tn making and recreation. Thousand of persons, ne added, contend that one cannot be a good Christian and attend meetings of mer-ymaking. From Washington Evening Star.

THE FAMINE IN RUSSIA IS NOT OVER The following ia an extract of letter from the Executive Secretary of the American Committee for Rus- smn Relief: There are today 7,352,000 people who face starvation thit winter.
