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
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
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
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.
Wc shall be merry without being
We desire to present to
you the Compliments of the
Season and express our sin
cere wishes for your prosper
ity during the New Year.
We wish also to take this
opportunity to thank you for

FOR OUR MOTHERS
The rchoo'a have two weeks tj.
raticn. 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
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.

MAKING IS BLOW TO FAITH
The following item, in which Pro
fessor Smith it quoted, was clipped
from a Washington paper:
New York, Nov. 13. 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

of Berea College, Ky., said in an ad
dress before the American Country
"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
A study of the habits of people of
the count-y, be said, showed w r"c

one cannot be a good Christian and
attend meetings of mer-ymaking.

letter from the Executive Secretary
of the American Committee for Rus-
There are today 7,352,000 people
who face starvation thit winter.
There are 1,000,000 "Famine Or
phans," whose parents died last win

friends unless you and I will be
their friends. There is misery and
wietchedness and hunger and despair

CHILDREN are caught and made
vif-timt of great, terrifying forces
for which they are not to blame, an J
v.iifch they are too little to combat.
t have aeen children starve DIE of
starvation. I have seen them lie in
the streets, half-naked frozen fc

sia is worse than anything you have
ever imagined and what they go
thru now, when they are little, wi'l
