STORIES FROM THE AMERICAN HISTORY WHAT WE OU H TO JAMES OOLE- 'JIIOIM'K, THE M CCKSHI-'UIj COi.OMX.LIl. Tho people pf tlm roiiiitry owe a lnst'ng debt of pnit'tmlo to Jnuits Oglethorpo for his efforts at coloni zation In the South. In early Ufa lid was nioro or less a soldier of fortuno and was tho son of a Drltish noble man. Oglethorpe's first Ideas to become nn American colonizer wcro brought about through tho desires to be philanthropic to certain unfortunates In his own country. He was elected to Parliament when but a young man, and it was as a member of that body that the abuses In the English law camo to his attention. In Oglethorpe's time It was within tho power of a creditor to Imprison, acording to his pleasure the man who owed him money and was not ablo to pay It. He had a friend upon whom this hard fate had fallen. His nttcntlon was thus painfully called to tho cruelties which wcro Inflicted upon the unfortunate and helpless. It wns through Parliament that he obtained a partial remedy for the nbuso. Oglethorpo dovlsed how ho could carry these unfortunates to a new world where, under hnppler auspices, (they might open n fresh career. With this object In view Oglethorpo ob tained on December 7, 1731, from King George II. n charter by which the country between Savannah and tho Altamaha and stretching west ward across tho continent was erect ed Into tho province of George. It was to bo a refuge for the deserving poor and, next to them, for Protes tants suffering persecution. Parliament during the winter that followed, voted 50,000 in aid of tho humane enterprise, and many bene volent persons were liberal with their gifts. Oglethorpe completed his arrange ments during the summer of 1732 and in November the first exodus of tho Insolvents took place. Oglethorpo sailed with 120 emigrants, mainly selected from tho prisons penniless, but of good reputo. He surveyed tho coasts of Georgia and in January landed and chose a site for the capital ' of tho new State. Oglethorpo nn.l his pilgrims pitched their tents whero Savannah now stands and at onco proceeded to mark out the lines of streets and squares. Next year tho colony was Joined by about a hundred German Protes tants, who were then under persecu tion for their belief. Tho fame of Oglethorpe's enterprise spread over Europe All struggling men, against whom tho battlo of llfo went hard, looked to Georgia as a land of prom ise. Tho progress of the colony was slow. Tho poor persons, of whom It was originally composed, wcro hon est, but Ineffective, nnd could not in fScorgla, mora than In England, And tho way to become self-supporting. After seeing tho new colony set tled Oglethorpo went to England, taking with him Toral-Chl Chi and ono or two other Indian chiefs, In Wjrder that they might become Im pressed with tho strength and great ness of tho English people. Tho In habitants of Savaunnh, In common dtssatlsflod during tho absence of Oglethorpo, nnd upon his return In February, 173G, ho experienced diffi culty In restoring order and harmony. Tho two eminent English divines, John and Charles Wesley, returned with Oglethorpo upon his second visit. On tho Sunday after their ar rival tho Itev. John Wesley, after wards tho founder of Methodism, preached his first sermon In America, his text being from tho eplstlo of tho day, tho thirteenth chapter of First Corinthians. John Wesley remained two years in America, and when ho reached England, his fellow-laborer, Georgo Whltofleld, sailed for Georgia. He met with very great success. After a tlmo tho colony began to prosper and Oglethorpo went to England In 1743 and was never ablo to return to Georgia, owing largely to tho fact that ho had already sacrificed his privato means for tho welfaro of tho colonies. Oglethorpe's statcmanship and his prowess as a soldier had finally mado Georgia prosporous and safo from In vasion. Doing poor ho went back to his military profession and roso at last to tho rank, of commandcr-ln-chlef of all England's armies. But his misfortunes wero not an end. Bo cause ho failed In his mission of cap turing "Bonnie Prince Charllo," he was court-martialed on charges of Ureachery. When tho Revolution broke out Oglethorpo was offered command of the British armies in America, and although he was olghty-slx years old, Vo accepted tho task provided he v would bo allowed to do all In his pow er to reconcile tho colonies and win them back to England. Tho King refused to allow him to adopt" such concllltory tactics. Ho thereupon re fused tho glittering offer and retired to prlvnto life. Ho died at tho ex treme ago of ninety-six, in 1785. How Mrs. Hnrrod Got Hid of Her Stomach Trouble. "I suffered with stomach trouble for years and tried everything I heard of, but tho only relief I got was tempornry until last Bprlng 1 saw Chamberlain's Tablets advertised and procured a bottlo of them at our drug store. I got lmmediato relief from that dreadful heaviness after eating and from pain In tho stom ach," writes Mrs. Linda Hnrrod, Fort Wayne, Ind.

In tho upper portion of tho mountain's pre cipitous face It Is expected to chisel n frieze representative of the onco formidable army of tho Confederacy. A handsome page view In tho April Popular Mechanics Magazine shows how this stupendous piece of sculp turing will be executed. Tho financing of this enterprise is in the hands of the Stone Mountain Confederate Memorial Association, which Is headed by the honorary president of tho United Daughters of the Confederacy. It Is estimated that $2,000,000 will he sufficient to carry out tho undertaking, and this sum is to be raised by subscription In the South. The entire facade of tho mountain, enough of Its crest to pre serve Its sky-line, and an 80-acre tract at the base which will bo devel oped Into a park, have been donated for the memorial. This property will remain under the custodianship of tho women, although virtually con veyed to tho state. One of America's foremost sculp tors has been chosen to execute tho work. His composition represents nn array divided In two wings, mount ed and afoot, following the contour of tho mountain. Pressing over tho crest and keeping to Its right will be tho main body composed of cavalry. Infantry, and artillery. At one side of this, rounding the monolith, will appear tho other forco headed by a brilliant group of horsemen conslst Inf of tho figures of Lee, Stonewall Jackson, "Job" Stewart, tho John stons, nnd probably other great southern leaders of the '60s. This granite army, carved In full relief, will extend across the sldo of tho great rock for roughly 2,000 feet. Tho horsemen will doubtless average between 45 and 50 feet in height, al though these and the former figures nro merely approximate estimates. There will bo altogether some 1,200 separate portraits, each uniformed In tho gray of tho granlto. It is poss ible that nearly all of these figures will represent men who actually fought for tho South. Tho work will thus be of sufficient size to bo visible a distanco of several miles. -e-- Isii't Mnuil Mercenary? Maud Would you marry for money? Ethel Not I. I want brains."

That tho forthcom ing 30 days arc likely to bo the most momentous period of the war and will definitely nnd finally dctcrmlno tho fato of Germany Is tho consensus of opinion In well informed Paris circles, which I havo canvassed ns to tho events of tho Immediate future. Americans will not understand tho Import of tho happenings In Europe during the past few days unlcss'they consider them as forming part of the colossal stroke the kaiser has decid ed to mako for an early and favor able peace. According to my Information, the following Is tho logical sequence of European, events this year. First In consequence of the breakdown of German's near-eastern campaign, caused by Premier Brland Salonlkl coup and Russia's successful Invasion of Armenia, the kaiser de cided to attempt to smash the allies' western front this spring, being further Impelled to this drive by the growing tendency of the allies to act unitedly on nil fronts, which tendency was confirmed by the March confer ence In Paris. Second The Verdun offensive was tho first stroko of the Imperial staff's plan. Tho crown prince's bloody failure hns gravely compromised the whole plan, but tho staff accepts the sporting chnnco that remains and will striko a second blow. This, Paris experts say, will fall on the British front. Third Yesterday's news included the Idea that the German frontier had been closed since Monday; that mails cannot pass and that even fore igners cannot quit Germany until 20 days havo elapsed. It should be re membered that a similar measure preceded the Verdun attack. Fourth In order to strike the British army a deadly blow the lm peria Istaff has preceded It with several dramatic demonstrations against the British Islands, designed to throw the London war office Into disarray and to frighten the popu lation. Tho fillbustlng affair off Tra Ieo Bay, tho Dublin insurrection and combined naval and air demonstra tions against tho cast coast of Eng land may be In Flanders as prelim inaries to a bntlc In Flanders quite as furious as the Verdun battle. Kaiser on Western Front. Fifth A British official bulletin published records detrmlned efforts by tho Germans to drive back re connolterlng war planes. Sixth The Kaiser remains on the western front vlth Gen. von Falken hayn tho chief of tho general staff, during tho crisis with tho United States. It is believed ho will witness tho opening of the forthcoming bat tle, probably addressing his troops, as ho did at tho beginning of tho drive on Verdun. Reports of tho kaiser's Impending concessions to President Wilson on tho submarino question can only be accepted as probably true In view of the fact tho kaiser Intends to solaco tho German dlssappolntcment by a terrific attack on the British lines. Well-posted Frenchmen understand that If the German emperor could smaBh the British army ho could af ford to call off his submarine form tho British overseas commerce routes Tho whole- of this bold and elabo rate sch em 0 was foreshadowed by tho German government when It stated In tho posters calling for subscrip tions to tho fourth war loan: "Gormany Is gathering all her for ces to strike a colossal blow. That It may fall with German precision and German forco, dealing destruction and annihilation llko tho thunder bolt, such as tho call to arms." Paris Is confident that the plan will fall. Tho magntflclent stand of tho French army at Verdun and the unending slaughter It Is still Inflict ing on tho kaiser's legions have broken its back. Tho struggle at Verdun Is likely to continue some what on Its present lines, whilst tho 800,000 troops whom Col. Rcplngton has reported concentrated In Flan dors go Into titanic battlo against tho British. Children Ory FOR FLETCHER'S CASTO Rl A o TEACHING CHILDREN THE SHAME OF DEBTS Whatever elso you may wish to do for your children and cannot do, you can, at least, Impress strongly upon their young minds the shamo of debt. You can mako them realize by pre cept and example how much more ad mirable It Is to go without things or pleasure than to possess them at tho cost of self-respect and at another's expense. There can be no greater benefit bestowed upon a child than to have these ideas Imbedded In tho mental consciousness until they be come foundation stones of the char acter. A woman in New York, mother of tWo lovely young daughters and wife of a good man, was ambitious to shlno'ln certain Intellectual clubs. Sho was admitted to ono of them nnd Invited friends to bo her guests at a large social function, where an ex pensive luncheon was served, but when the bills for her dues and lun cheon tickets wero presented she Ig nored them. The same woman purchased ex pensive matrlal in which to clotho her daughters, and ignored tho bill until a lawyer's letter frightened her Into paying It. She Is one of hundreds of wom en who are dressing, dining and driving on other people's money. She had not been rightly trained by her parents or she could never havo de scended to such a' level. Sho had, no doubt, heard her mother speak ad mirably of people who shone socially and who wore fashionable garments more frequently than she hnd heard her praise the people who refused to run bills or Incur the taxing responsi bility of debt. Tho name of an eminent profess ional man chanced to be mentioned in a market where a gentleman was making purchases. The purchaser spoke highly of the professional man's Intellect. "Yes, he has In tellect, all right," said the market keeper, "but I haven't much use for t him." "He has owed me $28 on a meat bill for five years. Of course, I havo stopped sending tho bill now. He gives his patronage to other markets, and ho plays the same game on each mo after a time, and he Is that way In everything. He owes evei)t.oJy, nd they grow tired of sending htm ills and so he comes out the -vlnner of a few dollars with each party, l.ut bo loses the respect of everybody he i-als with." This Is a shtimi'Vi)1 record f')1- any naa to have. Tt 'f open theft aid .iMblng less. T'tre is no Intellec tual achievement, no social honor, which can compensate a man or woman for such a reputation. It Js sometimes impossible to avoid run ning bills. People who earn wages, salaried men and women, and even those pos-1 sessed of comfortable fortunes are, ' at times, placed In a position where immediate payments are impossible. ' But payments at stipulated times can be made when the Importance of such a proceeding Is firmly fixed In the mind of the debtor. I A fixed purpose always blazes a trail toward achievement. When It is absolutely Impossible to make pay-j ments It Is always possible to make your creditor know that you mean to pay. There are people who have car ried tho burden of debt for years yet never for ono moment did any one doubt their Integrity or their ulti mate success. To be careless, Indifferent and ( thoughtless In these matters; to post- ( pone payment when you could lessen j your inuenieaness, an savors 01 a criminal tendency of mind. You may as well enter the house of a trades man or merchant and tako mon9y from his pocket while he sleeps as to enter his place of business and tako what you desire and refuse or neglect to pay your bills. If you will look about you, you will see that not only tho respect of their fellowmen, hut good luck and good fortuno follow tho people who have high and sensible Iderls In the mntter of debt. There Is no more admirable reputation to merit than that of being honorable anl conscientious In mono? obligations.
