It may he marked, with reference to these, two that some of the most noteworthy ami deeiie hattles in centuries past nave heen wa'-ed and fought hitterly upon the same hattle fields.

Listen: Polaad, a heautiful country, lias suffered much more than Uelpinni ever suffered, suffers now more than P.eU'ium suffers, and in the future it will suffer more than Ihlfium. Mil lions of poor, helpless Polish men. women and children clamor for help, hut the world hears not this voice of anguish, because the din and i-'l.ire of the war deafens all sound and he cause it is so far away. lie lium emits a siuh and millionaires rush to aid and re'ief; while these same mil lionaires miht recall that Poles helped more to j;ive them those mil lions than 1'eK'inns. and will continue to do so. Belgium is helped easily. 'I has many friends, while Poland is surrounded on all sides by wolves and cut off from the rest of the world. Help is p edible. It is possible to help the Pedes, They should he helped, for they are a reat unit In the present war. and are liuht im; for liberty. Will Americans. lov ers of liherty. overlook this land of the free? Koeently there have heen held all over this country patriotic meetings of Polish people to raise funds for the relief of the unfortunate Poles. 1 This was an act which cannot have passed ur noticed hy anyone. It was an act of heroism during the past months of hard times on the part of people who are not ric h, hut hard norkinir. patient, enduring and satis tied. The raisins of funds was not re stricted to one such meeting in a lo cality, but month after month., week after week similar meetings were held until the sum proved to be of suf f'.cknt value and size for the present, always keeping in mind the "hard times" and the hit;h cost of living. These sums are sent over the ocean and there an organization distributes the money so that een a widow's mite reliees a bit of suffering. Kalians Offer Aid. Russians, especially the hUh so ciety circles of women. have also thought of the sufferings and misery endured hy pole- in fiuhtimr for the Russians, and have offered their serv ices to relieve the vic tims. The sums raised are extraordinary, and show that when hmuan sympathy is aroused no national prejudices or hatred will prevent 'ood action. The "barbarism" of the Russians becomes a fable: national hatred a soap bub ble; all hasten to help human be Inps. beincs which hae sutTered for many years unjustly. These charitable efforts do not re Hew the suu'erinus of all the Poles In Poland. Russians help their pos sessions. Austrians have little time to think about similar actions, and Her mans cannot be said to have clone .inythin-T. The armies destroyed Pol ish homes, crops and have eaten up everything which came their way. but to repay this nothim; has been done us yet. except, as we ha-e heard on part of the Russian.

She saw him while he was still some distance off and was waiting at the little Kate to meet him. Sweethearts they had been for years, since hoy and girl they had Kone to school together, and they had thought soon to settle down now in a uee home of their own. A cottage would soon.be vacant on the other side of the hill. Hut war had conic and with the call for men young' Arc hie had volunteered as became a soldier's son. He had told his Mary what he: meant to do before he had s-'one to the recruiting otrice, and though there had heen tears very near her eyes her lips had smiled and she had Just said he must do as he though best, which is woman's way. Rut perhaps she had never realized all that soldiering might mean until now, when she saw him corning ir his brand new uniform, when it sudden ly rushed over her and she felt afraid, terihly afraid. "h'o you are going after all " sho started, in her eyes a mingling of anxiety and pride, "i'ou're for away, Archie?" "I'm for away," he returned, touch ing one of her hands, which was rest ing on the topmost bar of the gate. "Don't you get worrying about me, Mary lass. They say it will jist he a sort o' picnic for us boys. Any way we have to go, and the Black Watch won't he the lirst. to fall ahini. That's a cert." "Rut there might he danger!" She voiced the suggestion wistfully gently. Archie's chin went up a trille, for a moment he pressed his lips together tightly. "So fear o' that the noo," he said. "An' if there was who cares?" "I'd care," she answered. An there's your faither, too! he'd care." Archie nodded. "Ay," he said slowly. "There's that. 1 was think in' o' us yins. When we joined the Territorials we Kent that we was goin' to train in case there might be a chance to light. I'm no sure that we'll get the chance." "I pray you won't, Archie." He cleared his throat gruflly, and did his best to laugh. "We'll no get over serious, you an me," he said. "Im no joing to say good-bye to you, Mary, just a sort of ta-ta." Mary's head went forward slightly, and she did not raise it for a moment or two. She knew that her eyes had suddenly become dim, and she did not wish that Archie should see this dim ness. Then she thought of that other who loved the lad. the other who would grieve if harm happened to him. ?he had to wait till she had her voice in control, which was not just at once; then she spoke slowly. "How about your faither?" she ask ed, looking up at last. He's terrible against you going, isn't he?" "Him He's daft aboot it. It's queer that him having been in the auld volunteers himself. He's wear in' on, of course. Maybe that's it. He was against me joinin the Terriers frae the first. A lot o' nonsense, he says, learnin' to shoot at yer lellow men these day. We're no savages, he says. An' of course since this was started, he's been worse." "What's he been savin'?" "Savin? What has he no been say ing! I'm a lunatic, he says. I'd be better Avorkin the croft than blat terin' away at a lot o' fat Germans, even if it c omes to that. He says that the country's gone mad, an' that I'm yin o' the madmen. '1 learned to shoot a rille yince.' he says, 'but that was long ago, and I've more sense than to go to tightin's now. It's nothin to he proud o' your goin off with the soljers,' he says. 'The whole thing is daft, an' you're jist yin o' a daft drood.' he says." A Hush had risen in Mary's cheek as she listened. "He'd no right to speak that way." she said. "Your faither he may be. hut he should mind he's a highlander, t o. He's over auld to go off to tteht himsel' but he should give you a 'God-speed.' It must hurt you an awfjl lot havin him to set against your goin'." For some seconds Archie looked away. "It hurts terrible," he said at length. "If only he'd given a sign that he didn't mean all he said, ou're different. You help . a buddy sort off. In those words lay her reward for all the pain in her heart. She was helping her lad in his time of need, and it came upon her in a vague way that perhaps her courage was not less than his. her battle not less hard to tight. It was bad for him to have to go away, feeling his father was hot with anger against him. Mary knew the deep affection that had existed for years between father and son, and guessed poor Archie was cut to the quick by this unexpected development. That trouble meant he needed her love anil sympathy and courage all the more, and she gave him them In full measure as they walked up and down, not saying much partly be cause they were never talkative felk and also because now their hearts were too full to make speech easy. Yet each understood the other, and Mary managed to smile, ami they spoke hopefully of the future, pic turing the triumph of the time when Archie a sergeant's stripes on his arms entered Herlin, and the Joy of the time which would come a little later, when she would welcome him home again, and they would live hap pily ever after. They were not prr-.c-tieal thoughts, and sensible folk might have laughed at them, but they play ed a useful part in rendering two oung people happy, just as dreams so often do. rive minutes later he had parted from her. He looked hack at her only once, and after that went strid- GIRLS! CLEAM AND BEAUTIFY HAIR UFF 2S CENT OH US! IE Stop washing hair! Try this! Makes hair glossy, soft and abundant.

A friend of mine a man who would not for the world hurt anybody's feel ings, and who would readily walk a mile .to do anyone a good turn was placed in a very awkward situation the other day. He had been asked out to dinner with some friends who live in a little suburban house, where the hard times had made a consider able difference in domestic economy. The lady of the house does the cook ing now that her husband's income has shrunk. My friend was warned he might have to "put up with things." However, the three of them the lady, her husband, and my friend got on finite well till the po tatoes came upon the table. "Hard as bricks." my friend groaned to me. "By jove! when I tried to confounded plate like a you know- stick my fork into the thing it rolled about the marble, and Mrs. O. what a sweet creature she is? noticed it, and asked me if it wasn't finite right. What would you have done? I knew she, poor woman, had cooked 'cm. So I said I hadn't the slightest doubt the potato was excellent. Then I made another dab at it. Xo go. Then Mrs. (1. bolted to the kitch en to see something she had forgot ten, and, a knock coming to the front door, G. went to interview the caller. It seemed to give me just the oppor tunity I wanted. I grabbed the po tato, wrapped it up, in a letter I had in my pocket, and stuck it away in my pocket. I'd pretended I'd eaten it." Good! Everything went well till about an hour later, when the wretch ed man was suddenly seized with a fearful sneeze, and hurriedly pulling out his handkei chief, brought out with it the potato which he had for gotten and dropped It upon the drawing-room tloor before the aston ished gaze of Mr. and Mrs. G, lie tells me he "never felt so horrible be fore." He's convinc ed that they imag ined he wanted to take that potato home with him. Hadn't he tried it? After an ineffec tual attempt to eat the loaf under a neighboring hedge, the beggar got so e xcited that he returned to his "bene factor's" house, and in a tit of rage hurled the missle through one of the windows. Ingratitude! It was hard luck, studying feelings like that and then failing so disas trously. Haven't you noticed your self that it is not always one's kind liest actions that seem to "come off best?' An accident like that some times leads to the action being miscon strued. Sometimes the recipient of the kindly deed proves unworthy of it. It's disheartening. Ptill, one must persevere. Never did we need more kindliness in the world than now. "Kindliness never failed yet and never will do so, however its triumph may be disguised from us," declared Charles Kingsley: "I will bear fruit somehow either in the recipient or in the practiser of it. But some peo ple are strangely eloquent on its fail ure." They are. Dean Hole knew a man who, though he was the richest man in th district, was remarkably mean. Hole tried to awaken him to some generosity, and failed iguominiously for a long time. Then at last the obdurate one actually ventured on an experiment in charity. Hearing a tap at his front door one day he went to Interview the caller? A beggar! He was in the middle of his directions as to the shortest cut to the nearest workhouse, when he stopped. He sud denly remembered half a loaf of bread which had grown too hard for him to eat. Trotting off. he brought it and presented it to the man at the door, lie used to declare ever after that charity was wasted on the poor. "Give Ym bread and they throw it away." We are so surprised when kindliness does not receive a proper return, that we forget very often the good returns it does meet with. "It's the woman to whom you give up your seat in the omnibus and who takes it without a 'thank you,' who sticks in your throat," declared Dan Lcnii. Hhe does. .Some time since a man wrote to the newspapers declaring that women were the most ungrateful creatures possible for kindliness shown them. Kvery time he perpetrated some act of politeness or consideration for a woman and she took no notice of it was ineradicably fixed in his memory. He forgot all the others who had been grateful and rewarded him with thanks and a smile. He de clared he would never, "under any cir cumstances," go out of his way again to oblige a lady. If you ask me, I believe that resolution was what he had been seeking an excuse for all along. Some people don't experiment much in kindliness. They are just the peo ple who speak as If they had made innumerable experiments all failures. Sir Walter Besant knew a man of that kind. c)ne day when they were walk ing together, Besant stopped to give a beggar two-pence. His companion as sured him he had done a very foolish thing. j "You give a fellow twopence," he j said, "ami what does he do? (Joes and gets drunk and makes a beast ot him self " "Just try it for once." retorted Besant. irritated by his companion's speaking as if lie had been giving two pence for years. "Just try it for once." It was Besant's conviction that he had never given twopence awav in his life. Studying others' feelings seems a terrible task to some people not a thing to be lightly undertaken. Any way, they will wait for the other per son to begin lirst. They might waste Kindliness and they are most econ omical people in that respect. They would as soon think of keeping the water tap running or the gas burning all day as of spending kindliness all the time. Extravagance! I know a lady of that kind. She is not remarkably popular, and is one of the persons who are convinced that one can, w ithout the most scrupulous care, throw away an enormous amount of consideration for others. She pro ceeds, as it were, upon a "cash before delivery of goods" principle. Show her some consideration lirst and then she'll hand you some back. When I pointed out to her that this was rather mean, as she required the other per son to trust her first and never trusted anyone herself, she retorted: "I do as I'm done by, and that's scripture, anyway." When I pointed out that it wasn't that doing unto others as we "would they should do unto us." was quite a different thing meant, indeed, that we didn't wait for the other to make a beginning, but began ourselves, she declared I must take her for a heathen. I'm not sure that she Is not very considerably. ing homewards at a good pace, hi3 shoulders squared. his eyes almost hard. Beaching the cottage, he step ped silently through the doorway, and, amazement in his eyes, gazed into the humbly furnished room. He had left his service ritle stand ing against the dresser but it was there no longer. Old MacBae had it in his hands, was lingering it almost lovin&ly. .Suddenly he raised it to his shoulder and pulled the trigger. "Ye devies." ho said through his shut teeth. "Take that and that!" Then, quivering, he sighed and set the rifle down, hut not before Archie had stepped softly onto the porch again. Next moment he strode into the cottage, whistling, his eyes bright and contentment in his heart at lust. SAYS WIFE GOT DRUNK Henry Knunoiw Wants Dhonv After lYw Months Married Life.
