ence. "Devotion to their creed
forms," said he, "ths mainspring of
their lives." (And so it shouM be,
and so it has been with our Christian
martyrs, Puritan aneestors.or with the
Huguenot victims. Devotion to creed
raised Peter the Hermit and sent the
Crusader against the Pavnim hosts.
f he ereed of Mahomet set the stand
ard of the Crescent over thousands.)

The Navajos are trading off their
ponies for cattle in southern Arizona
