Indian summer, that most perfect time of all the year, is here again, and all worldly interests vanish In the amazing loveliness of earth. It does rot seem to matter that there is a lack of social gaiety now—in the first place, everyone Is busy readjusting them selves after the long summer, getting one's house and one's clothes ready for the winter, and settling down Into a new routine rafter months of Idleness and playing. One always feels that something really worth while should be acompllshed during the winter months if it is only a little club work, or taking up the study of language or music, or Rgfhaps a little philanthropy. At any rate the social calendar is more than usually empty during this month, but it does not matter when It it In dian summer weather. Now, more than ever, one feels the call of the open when every road you see seems to be Inviting you to follow it, and to offer $ promise of enchantment, of adventure at every turn. The woods are a riot of color, and there is beauty in every leaf. There is nothing in the spring compar able to the magic of this. Tbe mar vel of it all almost takes one's breath away. To many imaginative persons autumn is dreary and oppressive be cause it seems to presage age and be cadence, and an end of all things. Perhaps there is something a little sad about It—a certain haunting wistful ness, the very quality of which adds to the mystic wonder of it all. Weather and people are alike in that respect,that there must be gray days as well as bright ones. It would be very dull if they were all alike—even contentment may grow monotonous. One cannot help feeling a little sorry that the care free Idle summer time Is over, but it is not possible to remain so long, when the Jade Indian Summer comes, flaunt ing her daring, flamboyant colors and luring one to the woods and country. It i8 a call that one must heed, wher ever it is heard. Perhaps it will be walking down a crowded city street, when one catches a whiff of a breeze wafted from some far-off forest, or a glimpse of sky, or a fallen leaf, that makes one think of the country and Indian summer in Iowa. It is the time when everyone wants to be home again and those away at Bchool or liv ing and working elsewhere, or serving their country on the border, feel a desire, the "helmweh" for Iowa, which is at its best and most'beautiful now. DR. SAGE IS IN ST. LOUIS 'Rector of St. John's, One of Four Clerical Delegates to Church Convention, ,-y The Rev. John C. Sage left this aft ernoon for St. Louis where he is one of the four clerical delegates repre senting the diocese of Iowa in the great convention of the Episcopal church which meets in that city for the next three weeks. The Rev. Mr. Sage at the last diocesan convention, was almost unanimously elected to lead the Iowa delegation, which con sists of four clerical and four lay delegates, this being the third time that this honor has been bestowed upon Mr. Sage. The general convention of the Epis copal church begins its sessions nexi Wednesday. The city has been pre paring to entertain this great church gathering for more than a year. St. Louisans outside of Episcopalians, are proud of the distinction which en tertaining the general convention brings to the city. This is the ilrit time the convention has met in this section. It goes to St. Louis because of the fact that th« year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the consecra tion to the Episcopate of the Rt. Rev. Daniel S. Tuttle, D. D., D. C. L., who is not only the bishop of Missouri, but is also the presiding bishop, virtually the archbishop of the Episcopal church in the United States. St. Louis has been his .home for thirty years. It is signally fitting that Bishop Tut tle's semi-centennial should be marked by the meeting of the general con vention in his see city. The general convention meets every three years. It has been called one of the most able representat've legisla tive bodies In the world. Its member ship. both in the clerical and lay or der, includes many of the ableet men of tlie country. It consists of two houses, an upper and a lower, cor responding to tfie senate and house of representatives. The upper house is called the house of bishops, the mem bership of which is confined to the bishops of the churoh, numbering 130. The lower house is the house of deputies. It consists of four clerical and four lay delegates from every do mestic diocese, that is to say, dioceses^ in this country, and one clerical anf one lay delegate or deputy from each missionary district or diocese, domes tic and foreign. The deliberations of the general convention always attract nation wide attention, and this year there will be added Interest for colored Americans.

Peo ple are realising that the greatest help to the boy must oome from hiB father, and that only when the pact of comradeship Is firmly sealed. Fathers are necessarily busy earning a living for theiT families. Especial ly are the children, the center of all their hopes and ambition, dear to thtm. But in their desire to do the best possi/ble for them, they, too, often overlook the immediate need of their boys—their boys who are to be fath ers and citizens in the years to come. How much those fathers miss who do not enjoy the intimate good fel lowship and confidence of their sonsi At a focal hotel recently, father, moth-" er and son sat at dinner. Other guests were attracted by their lively, animated conversation, and when the meal was over they watched father and son, arm in arm, follow the moth er from the room.
