The above cable message is the first direct news received by American Ital ians from surviving relatives in Sicily. The sender of the message lived at Messina, where, with a wife and three children, he was happy in a little home. The rest of the story is told in the three eloquent words of his na tive tongue. It is an appeal to his own kindred meant for nothing more. But it can well be taken as an appeal to the whole American people. ' For, despite many differences of racial traits, there is still the strong tie of brotherhood among men. This feeling prompts us to assuage suffering wherever suffering occurs. How can we best effect that relief? At this far distance the only practical way Is to contribute money to a fund which will be sent by the proper au thorities to the sufferers. The Palla dium has started a relief fund and contributed to it. It remains for the citizens of Richmond to make that fund large enough, at least, . to be representative of the city's resources. AH. the money that can be raised is needed In the unfortunate region and it Is needed at once. Some tardy contributors will may, "Oh, well there has been enough given," but it is not true. Ambassador Griscom at Rome says that all survivors must be trans ferred to Naples, Leghorn and Genoa where they will be provided tempor ary shelter. "Ships, tents, food, blank ets, clothing, surgical and medical sup- piles" is the cry from Southern Italy. To furnish these supplies will require a large fund larger than Italy, a com paratively poor country, can give. The rest of the world must contribute. We are glad to say, from press ad vices, that the American nation is up holding its reputation of being the first to the rescue. Let the people of Richmond contribute their share. Heart to Heart Talks. By EDWIN A. NYE. Copyright, 1908, by Edwin A. Nye "SAMO" AND HIS WIFE. Sapho was merely a galley boy in the Composing room of a Kansas City newspaper. He was called Sapho be cause But that is another story. He was a small young man. Nor was he handsome. Bat his energy and cheerfulness were in inverse propor tion to his size and. lack of pulchri tude. One day Dan Cupid, who cares little for looks, bat is strong on hearts, marked him for his own. Sapho loved a winsome Kansas City maiden. And she, on her part, saw qualities in him that others did not avu Following established precedent, the course ef true love did not run smooth. When the couple asked to marry, the parents of the girl said, "Height of foolishness, on his meager wages." "But the matrix is cast," said Sapho. Then, the printers conspiring, he and the girl were married. " The sequel? Sapho's optimism won. The parents said the girl "might have done worse.1 And the twain have already proved that two souls with but a single thought can be comfortably kept In two bodies , on Sapho's wages which have been raised. And this Is Sapho's wife's recipe for happiness: "I would rather live In a dirt floor cabin with the man I love than to be supported in luxury by a husband not my choice." An, wise little woman! That was the recipe the old alchem tots hunted for in vain the alchemy that turns all baser metals into purest gold. To go a little further with this little love story, the wife is ambitious. She ays Sapho must some day be the owner of a Job print shop of his own. A, common love tale, this? Tes, not uncommon.

Ancient Greeks and the Process of Sterilizing Water. The ancient Greeks already recom mended the use of sterilized water. Rufus of Ephesus. in the first century of this era, taught that "all water from rivers and ponds is bad except that from the Nile. Water from rivers which flow through unhealthy soil, stagnant water and that which flows near public bathing places is harmful. The best water Is that which has been boiled in baked earthenware vessels, cooled and then heated a second time before drinking." This hygienic prescription was in tended both for healthy and sick peo ple, since it was applied to the armies: 'During marches and In camps pits must be dug successively from the highest point to the lowest level of the place. These boles should be lined with clay such as is used for making pottery and the water should be mado to percolate through it. The water will leave all its Impurities In these pits." It may be inquired how the ancient Greeks, knowing the processes of ster ilization and filtration of water which they applied to that of the most limpid rivers, should have drunk without pre cautions the water of the Nile, which our microscopes allow us to declare sound," but which Is in appearance the most worthy of suspicion of all and Is so muddy, so yellow, that It re sembles wine. Gazette des Eaux. THE BASILISK. How the Fabulous Monster Was Pic tured by Ancient Writers. The basilisk was the most famous of the many fabulous monsters of me diaeval folklore. According to the popular notion. It was batched by a toad from an egg laid by the cock of the common barnyard fowl. In the ancient picture books It was usually represented as an eight limbed ser pent or dragon, sometimes with and sometimes without wings. Its name Is derived from basiliscos, meaning a little king, and was applied because the creature was figured with a circle of white spots on its bead which much resembled a crown. The cockatrice, a species of basilisk, besides having a crown, possessed a comb which 'was an exact counterpart of the cock's. Pliny assures us that the ' basilisk had a voice which "struck terror to the hearts of men, beasts and ser pents." The Bible classes It with the lion, the serpent and the dragon as one of the most formidable creatures. Old writers Pliny, Base ho and others say that Its bite was mortal In every case, that Its breath was suffocating and that no plant would grow in the vicinity of its lair. Its dead body was often suspended in belfries to pre vent swallows from building there. Disease Scents. "Every disease almost has Its pecul iar odor," said a doctor. "This odor helps us greatly in diagnosis. "Gout Imparts to the skin a smell precisely like whey. Diabetes causes a sweet, honey-like smell. Jaundice oc casions a smell of musk. Smallpox has a very strong and hideous smell. It is like burning bones. Measles has a smell as of fresh plucked feathers. "The fevers have the most distinc tive odors. The odor of typhus is ammoniacal; that of Intermittent Is like fresh brown bread hot from the oven; that of typhus Is musty, recall ing to the mind old, damp cellars; that of yellow fever Is like the washings of a dirty gun barrel. "So, you see, to speak of -a doctor scenting our disease Is not to use a mere figure of speech." A Surprise For tho Thief. Herr Hager, a rich and influential banker, frequently had watches picked from his pocket. At first he had re course to all kinds of safety chains; then one morning he took no precau tion whatever and quietly allowed himself to be robbed. At night, on returning from his business, he took up the evening paper; be uttered an exclamation of delight. A watch had exploded In a man's hands. The vie tim's bands were shattered and the left eye destroyed. The crafty bank er had filled the watch case with dy namite, which exploded in the open' tion of winding. London Telegraph.

LARGER LAND FORCE IS DESIRE OF PRESIDENT Argument Is Made the Army Should Be Increased to! Peace Footing of 100,0001 Men. By Sheldon S. Cline Washlngton, Jan. 4. Now that the United States Navy has demonstrated to the world its ability to meet almost any test, the army authorities are con sidering plans to show the fitness of that branch of the service to rise to a sudden emergency such as would follow a declaration of war. These plans include a series of army maneu vers which promise to rival in mag r I nlficence, if not in the number of men and munitions involved, the great yearly army maneuvers of Germany, France and Englandt These maneu vers will be far more than a repeti tion of those of a year ago, in that they win assemDie a greater numoer of men and from a spectacular stand- ... ... . . i point will resemble the popular con- ception of what would follow if this country were called upon to repel the attack of a foreign power whose troops had already landed on our shores. They will be held next Spring in several parts of the country, and the several states wherein they are held and those adjacent will be asked to furnish national guardsmen to swell the number of participants and share in the benefits of the train ing. To Stimulate Interest. All this is part of a general plan to stimulate interest in the Army and impress Congress and the people with the urgent need of Increasing the fighting force of the United States to a peace footing exceeding 100,000 men. The present standing army of about 54,000 men, it is contended by President Roosevelt, Maj. Gen. Bell, chief of staff, and In fact by most army men, is wholly inadequate to meet anything approaching a war emergency. There is something, too, in the desire of the army authorities to share in the prominence which the Navy has enjoyed and profited by since the promulgation of the Presi dent's "greater navy" policy. This prominence to the Navy has been heightened since the departure of the battleship fleet on its world-round cruise, and in consequence Army men are eager to show just what their service is capable of doing. Navy Always Popular. There has always been something about the navy and naval life and ser vice that has appealed strongly to the sentiment and imagination of the American people, and in such a way as to reinforce and make effective the solid reasons which exist for the main- tainence of an adequate navy. There is romance and picturesqueness about everything connected with the navy, and there has been besides a magnifi cent record for dash, bravery, devo tion to duty and unsurpassed achieve ment which have endeared the Navy to all classes and secured it unvary ing support for whatever it asks for. This -is not always the portion of the army, though its personnel are In no sense less worthy than the navy of the country's praise. In time of peace, except in just such maneu- vers as are proposed, the army has lit- tie or no opportunity to prove itself able to meet a test. ' This service, in i short, is just everyday, prosaic, steady-going hard work. Its require- ments, from the nature of its duties, are scattered over so wide an area that there is nowhere any considera- ble force, and in consequence it does not impress the imagination of the people as the navy does, and, as its friends have long contended, does not secure the support to which it is en - titled, Bell Talks Plainly. Gen. Bell recently made a speech in which he talked plainly of this coun- try's unpreparedness for anything like war. He declared that his observa- tions had led him to believe that had the United States been at war with Germany or England instead of Spain in 1908, we would have suffered the worst defeat in our history. He ad- vocated a plan to increase the armv to at least 100,000 men immediately, with the idea of gradually doubling the number. These Drooosed maneu- vers are the result of Gen. Bell's in- sistence on bringing the army more to the front. He has twice been a spec- tator at oertn.n nnH irvcn,.h maneuvers, and his ideas mar hf said to have had their inception from what he saw in those countries. MASONIC CALENDAR. Monday Evening, Jan. 4.

The Eleventh has three votes and no candidates for senator. It is fig ured that Shively will gel two of them. The Twelfth is for Hoffman. It has eight votes and Hoffman will get all of them.

If this be true, then the real fight lies between these two candidates, just as it has all during the campaign for the senatorshin. And it Beems at tniS time-almost imoossible to figure out Just how they are aoine to Kern from winning out. He win have more votes than any other candidate at the start, and he will have jn addition the expressed wish of a iarge portion of the rank and file that ne be elected. And this counts for something. Firs Ballot Jan. 19th. The time for electing a United States senator is fixed by the United States statutes. The first ballot must be tak en on t he second Tuesday after the legislature has been organized. Ac cording to the constitution of the state, the legislature shall convene on Thurs day after the first Monday In January. It is not absolutely necessary for the legislature to organize on the first day that tl convenes, but this usually the custom. If this plan is followed the first ballot on the senatorship will be taken on January 19. The first ballot is cast by the two houses separately and t he result Is en tered on the record of the respective branches. Then on the following day at noon the two branches meet , in joint session with the lieutenant gov ernor as the presiding officer and the vote is announced. If any' candidate has received a majority of the votes in each house he shall be declared elected. But if no candidate has re ceived such majority then a vote by roll call of both houses in joint session shall be taken. Then if no candidate a majority om the votes on joint bal lot, another joint session shall be called at noon on the following day and t he legislature shall continue meeting at noon each day and taking one ballot until some candidate has received a majority of the votes on jolpjt ballot. Don't Blame Your Stomach When Without Exertion Or Cost You Can Enjoy Meals And Cure Dyspepsia. Don't blame your stomach or your luck when your meals declare war on your system. When the stomach won't do its work it is because it cannot. When foul smelling odors come from your stomach, when the head aches and the sourness of mouth every morn ing makes you hate your breakfast, when dreams and nightmare assail you, don't give up the fight. This is the appeal of nature, and it should be heard. Over-eating, late suppers, poorly 1 chewed food, too rich pastries and un der-done cooking are some of the caus- es of the stomach's ill health. When the stomach is busy, it press es and churns all the liquid matter from food and with its juices dissolves jto liquid form or pulp everything which comes into it. lf sach fod be poisonous It effects the juices, attacks the stomach, goes Into tne bIood and weakens the entire system' Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will di est a f u11 meal easily without mater- iai assistance iron te stomacn. iney P1 restocK tne gastric nuia witn an elements needed.

I Address F. A. Stuart Co, 150 Stuart lEUx. Harshall. Mich. - PLYMOUTH BETHEL -; Brooklyn In this issue we commence a series of discourses under the caption, "Peo ple's Pulpit." They are strictly tin sectarian, and not intended to build up any one denomination at the ex pense of another. As Beecher and Talmage of the same "City of Churches' were independent preach ers who gave their time and strength to the moulding of public thought, "with charity toward all and malice toward none," so with Pastor Russell of the Brooklyn Tabernacle. Pastor Russell's only fault (if fault it be) is his extreme Orthodoxy his close adherence to the Bible as the inspired Word of God. But after all, if the Bible be not man's only chart and compass as respects God and the future, what have we? And if this be so perhaps it is impossible to give too earnest heed to its teachings. On one point Pastor Russell is quite em phatic, namely he insists that it is inconsistent with reason to believe that all mankind, except the merest handful of "saints," were predesti nated by God to eternal torment in fire, because of ignorance or unbe lief. Ninety-nine of us out of every hundred reached that conclusion years ago; and it shook our faith in the Bible considerably. Pastor Russell, however, holds to the Bible tenaciously and claims to prove that on this point it has been misunderstood by many of its friends as well as by its foes. He has shown a few faulty translations, and offered pref erable interpretations for some parables, and altogether he has thrown a new light on the Scriptures. His presentations of the Bible's teachings have certain ly rescued many from unbelief. Mr. C. T. Smith, deceased, who was one of the editors of the Atlanta Con stitution, pa'd Pastor Russell, a most pronounced compliment along this line in the following terms: "It is impossible to read his writings without loving the writer and pondering his wonderful solution of the great mysteries that have troubled us all our lives. There is hardly a family to be found that has not lost some loved one who died outside the Church outside the plan of salvation, and, if Calvinism be true, outside of all hope and inside of eternal torment and dc- - . sPa,r- IIe makes no assertions that are argument is built up stone by stone, and upon every stone is a text, and it be- comes a pyramid of God's love and mercy and wisdom. There is nothing in the Bible that the author denies or doubts, throws a flood of light that seems to uncover its meaning." Pit tabu rg. Pa.. Jan. X. Pastor C. T.

In order to understand what the Apostle ment by forgetting the things behind, let us note the context preced ing and apply It individually, each to himself.

Beyond this, having heard of the Father's intention that all believers who would become "cop ies of his Son" should tt sharers with him la his glorious nature and King dom, the Apostle waa anxious to knew the Lord to tho full and to enter with him Into the heavenly glory.
