Human nature is the same in all âges. Among
found m excavations on the site of a Greek

markably human and modern atmosphere among
these colonial Greeks of the third century. Hus j
bands and wives complain of each other to the
.
courts very much as divorce seekers do now. Dot- *
ing fathers writs to wilful sons in college to be <
good ,and some of these boys not only refuse to !
be good but even threaten to punish offending !
parents by being naughty. For example, one Cor

Americans know it to day, is an agent j

inated in 1907 by Miss Emily ir. ±>isseu,
0 f Wilmington, Delaware, who learned
through Jacob Riis of somewhat simi
lar seals that were sold in Norway for
the purpose of raising funds with
which to fight tuberculosis.
Miss Bisseil persuaded the Ameri
can Red Cross to take up the idea with
the result that seals were sold ma
ot communities in
1908. The sale yielded a revenue of
approximately $3,000. The Red Cross j
then decided to issue the seals each
year and to turn the proceeds over to
the National Tuberculosis association
, and its affillate d societies for the pur- t
pose of financing the campaign against
tuberculosis. The number of seals
sold In America increased by leaps
and bounds until in 1917 the total
. . , 0 „AnnnAA
reached 180,000,000.
This year the seals are again on
beginning December 1. More
than half a billion seals have been

denomination to send workers to Paies- !

The Centenary European Commission
of the Church, headed by Bishop James

already dispatched five colporteurs to
the Holy Land. These will be followed
by five more in the next few weeks.
These workers will establish no sta- ;
tioas, but will follow the early Metho
dist custom of itinerating over the 1
country distributing Bibles, tracts and
Christian literature.
This literature will be printed ia
the native dialects, and will be secured
through an arrangement with the Nile j
