McBRIDE. BRON- In the SQK4 Tvler St. Minneapolis, Minn, Like everything else, our faith must grow and comprehend more. The great waste of life duriug the war should teach us more unforgetfully what a precious thing life is. NMen who have looked into the face of death on the battlefield or who have lived ' after hours of almost hopeless waiting in hospitals will treasure their life in a new way. Sympathy will be as a liv ing thing, not a mere local or selfish interest in people, but a world-wide ex pression of tenderness and generous care for those who are in need to the uttermost parts of the earth. How far off now sounds that guilty question of Cain ! We have learned a lesson in co-operation. We are beginning to know what it means to work together for a common good, says Indianapolis Star. Here is a lesson for the church es, if tney tail to see tnat it is Dy a unified endeavor that they can be real ly true to their trust, they will have missed the great lesson of the war. Another great lesson which we are being taught is the evil of idleness. In a world where much work is to be done there is much for everybody.

The United States Government, Thich is aiding in every way the work of the American Committee for Relief In the Near East (formerly the Arme nian and Syrian Relief Committee), has just given out the information that It will turn over to the committee for s nominal sum fifteen American Army hospitals in France and two hundred revolting within a short time. "Wheat was plenti ful in a district not far away, but there were no facilities for transporting it to the starving sufferers. Eor this reason the committee has purchased the 200 trucks from the American Government, and plans to buy more from the British Army, which, though impeded by the necessi ties of military operations, has greatly aided the distress in tbe Near East. As a consequence of malnutrition, sickness is rife in many communities throughout the Near East. Diseases which the people could resist If they were adequately nourished have taken root throughout all this territory on account of the wasted bodies of the whole population. Representatives of the committee report that aside from starvation the sanitary conditions are and that children go un- The public health service reports that the number of consumptives who seek a cure in a change of, climate is steadily increasing, but that the af flicted are showing better judgment than used to be the case. Time was when a man stricken with the white plague would waittill the last min ute, and then go to, Colorado or New Mexico, with hardly enough money to pay a week's board after arrival, look ing to the climate to work a miracle. Things are better now, but even yet 15 per cent of all deaths from tubercu losis in some health resorts take place within 80 days after the patient ar rives. Modern medical science has proved that, while climate Is of great value in treating tuberculosis, it Is by no means the sole factor, says Chica go Journal. Other things being equal, a moderately high altitude and dry, sunshiny weather will give the best possible results. If a patient has to choose between a home and a boarding house In Colorado, however, the chances are strong that he had much better stay at home.

Each of these hospitals contains 100 beds and complete equipment except for kitchen utensils. The buildings In which these hospitals will be housed In the Near East have been erected. With the hospital equipment the com mittee will purchase large quantities of medical supplies which have been stored in France to safeguard the health of American soldiers. These sapplles will be rushed to the Near Ett from a French port Careful surveys of the situation in the Near East indicate that lack of transnortation facilities Is the chief cause of famine. There is food enough to keep the Inhabitants from starving, but It cannot be distributed to supply 828,000 square miles of country. There are only 80 miles of railroad. Conse quently there is plenty of food in some sections of the country where food is grown, but great distress in those which are not self-supporting. In the cities especially there is great need. On one occasion wheat became so scarce in a community in Persia that William was not a hero to his own army, for he .shunned the perils of the battlcliclri. lie has not been distin guished as a legislator nor as an edu cator. He has had no conception of human liberty. His mental qualities are commonplace. Posterity will re gard him as more responsible than any other human being for the sacrifice of millions of lives In the great war, as a ruler who might have been benefi cent and wise, but attempted to de stroy the liberties of mankind and to raise on their ruins an odious despot ism. To forgive him and to forget his terrible transgressions would be to condone them. bathed for indefinite periods on ac count of the scarcity of soap and that the population is ridden with sores. Every day more moving appeals come from distressed Armenia, Syria, Persia and the Russian Caucasus. Tens of thousands of people are as gaunt and hungry as those gathered around the dead horse In the accom panying picture. Many have been without food for days. An Associated Press dispatch from Salonika of re cent date (December 16) reports that of the 2,000,000 Armenians deported by the Turks only 400,000 survived and that not more than one-fourth of the present Armenian population can survive until the next harvest without outside help. Distressing as seem these reports. It is encouraging to know that even causes of advanced emaciation, such as are shown in this illustration, readi ly respond to treatment. With food and medical care millions can be made strong and healthy. Thirty million dollars, the sum to be sought in the January 12 to 19 drive, will help save 4.000.000 lives. Considered only as an The Boston National league club seems to have had legitimate expenses during the season just closed amount ing to $185,000. Along with several other big league clubs, the Braves are in financial straits. It would have paid baseball magnates to listen to the voice of their country early In 1917, says Houston Post. Had the essential industry ruling been In full force then, It is probable no ball would have been played these two years., As it Is, fully five years of peace will be required for the game to recover from the slump of the war. When figures began to show def initely that the people of the United States were actually reducing their consumption of foods needed abroad, the United States Food Adminis tration was told that it was com paratively easy to bring about conser vation of staple necessities, but that It would be far more difficult to accom plish an actual decrease in the use of luxuries. The doubters took sugar as an example, and declared that It would be practically impossible to bring our consumption of sugar down to a point that would meet only the food needs of the people. Now that demands upon ocean ton nage will be lightened, European na tions will be able to go farther afield for foodstuffs, and will no longer be entirely dependent for sugar upon North American supplies. With the stocks "now in prospect, we will have suflicient sugar to place this country back upon normal consumption if the present short rations in Europe are not materially increased. If the H.u-i ropean ration is to be materially in creased over the present low amount it can be only through the American people's making It possible by con tinued restriction to a greater or less extent here. The fact that the Food Administra tion has been able to relax the volun tary sugar ration Is In Itself proof that the ration of two pounds per person per month was generally observed throughout the country. This conser vation allowed the Food Administra tion to build up a- reserve, and to tide over the period of scarcity, until the the new crops of Louisiana cane and beet sugar were ready for distribution. The records of the Food Adminis tration show that In July, August, Sep tember and October 993,000 tons we're distributed. Normal consumption for that period Is 1,600,000 tons. This shows a definite, concrete saving oi over 500,000 tons. These figures ap ply to sugar consumed on the table, In the kitchen and In the various indus ris. and show conclusively that in he homes and public eating places of America, where 70 per cent, of all our sugar is consumed, the sugar consump tion has beeu reduced by more than one-third. In the four-month period begin ning with July, this country normally uses 400,000 tons of sugar per month. Last July 260,000 tons entered Into distribution. In August only 225,000 tons were distributed. In September the figures showed 279,000 tons, and then fell to 230,000 tons In October. There could be no more definite proof that the American people have given their loyal co-operation- and sup port of the war.

Nobody knows very much about the human. body Any doctor, old enough to have had the bloom taken off his college omnipotence, will tell you that. In surgery -we have progressed miles ; in industry we have gone J furlongs, but in materia fmedica and daignosis and "elon" we have gone by inches, and many times have blundered ahead for ten years to -wake up and go back to where we tarted from. We know a man who is 74 years old. He -works on a farm from dawn till dark. He can swing a ten-pound sledge; can cut cord wood with the average woodsman; follow a 14-inch plow all day; generally do the -work of an aTerage husky farmer. He never has a cold and he can ork all day witttwet feet and-never 'een sneeze. v , . Impregnable positions have gone to the scrap heap, invincible armies are on the junk pile, the divine right of kings has dissolved in air like a pricked soap bubble, and the solemn proclamations of kaisers are but scraps of paper. These are some of the results which Germany has ex tracted from the four years of war she forced upon the world. . Coming to the relief of the dis tressed is not a new sensation to us. Having sent shiploads of food to the famine sufferers of India as offhand edly as the housewife hands out a cut of the loaf to the wayfarer, It seemed the most natural thing in the world to succor Belgium, to take on the feeding of a nation quite informally. The test of peace Is to summon for the healing of nations devotion equal to that given the task's of war.

He whales himself from toe to chest with a lengthy rubber hose stuffed with sand. He pounds the veins and rubs the arteries and whacks the tendons and muscles and that is all the medical attention his body has required in many years. He says this pounding chases the sluggish blood through the body. That this racing blood brings life giving oxygen to every inner atom. That it keeps the arteries pliable and workable. And 'that generally all the world needs to enable it to live and work until it is a hundred is a bit of rub her hose and .preserverence. Maybe so; anyhow it works on him and five years ago he had a chronic case of sciatica that tied him in knots whenever he over-exerted, or, suffered the least exposure. Nobody knows much about the hur man machine. Has a man between thirty-six and forty-five got a claim for a pension, on account of wasting so much time in filling out his questionnaire? Autocracy's hempen necktie should be adjusted in accordance with inter national law and not by the irrespon sible mob.
