Ion Laura Spencer Portor continues
her series of interpretations of vari
ous countries. ( owerning a nation's
perconality, Miss Portor says in part :
( "He who would travel in other
lands must leave his own behind. He '
who would judge'of a country and a
people must leave his own fireside
opinions, turn the key on his own
prejudices, cross whatever seas of dif
ficulty "may lie between his and an
other's land, and with eager step,
whetlier upon roads good or difficult,
whether upon hidden by-paths or
highways known to all, he must
travel into the very heart of the
stranger country. Thus he may come
any day upon that country's great
cities in the dawn, or chance upon
her noble events spread solemn be- '
rjeath the stars ; so shall he come to
know and love her simple village life
and' humble pleasures, her fertile
plains or rugged mountains, her at- ;
tainments and her difficulties. So,
living among this people and sharing j
the intimate life of their homes, they
shall come to have for him a particu
lar meaning, shall stand to him for
certain things not elsewhere to be
found in this exact kind of measure.
So sball an entire nation reveal to
him a distinct personality, even as an
individual with whom-we have lived
intimately and understandingly be
comes to us dear through the unfold
ing of that indivMuality.and those
characteristics so wholly his own, the
like of which we shall notvlook upon
elsewhere or asain."
Lines That Have Been Highly Praised
Declared to Have Been Produced -In
Time of Peace.
Tlobcrt Service, the Canadian
writer, who is at present engaged in
liol Cro.-s work in France, has cent
to the Paris correspondent ofvan
English paper what he describes as
"the best war poem I have seen."
The verses, which. AJ. Service say,
were found by a French priest on the
body of an English soldier killed at
the Mame, run as follows f v
They say that war ia heh, the great
accurst :
The sin impossible to "be forgiven;
Yet I can look upon it at its worst,'
And still see blue in heaven.
For when I note how nobly natures
Under the war's red rain, I deem it
That he who made the earthquake
and the storm
Perchance made battles, too.
As a matter of fact, the lines were
written in a time of profound peace
like most good war poems, and by a
man who was an ecclesiastic, not a
soldier. Their author was "Doctor
Alexander, the late lord primate of
Ireland, and they were first pub
lished in the Times some seven or

Writer Points Out the Danger of Eat
, Ing Pork That la Underdone In
the Slightest Degree.
.Trichina? are minute parasitic
worms which occur in rats, dogs,
cats, hogs, and cause a serious and
sometimes fatal disease, trichinosis,
in man. Rats found around slaugh
ter houses are frequently infested,
and dogs or hogs contract the para
sites from eating the rats. The au
thor found a cat affected that was
kept at a slaughter house to catch
the mice. (
The practical aspect of this ques
tion is the presence of these para
sites in pork and the danger to man.
It is estimated' by some authorities
that about 1 per cent of all hogs in
this country harbor trichina?.
Man becomes infested by eating
pork which has not been thoroughly
cooked or cured.' The mortality in
man ranges from 10 to 40 per cent.
These parasites are very minute, and
practical meat inspection does not
guarantee that the meat is free from
them. Since the parasites are read
ily killed by heat, safety lies solely
in eating no pork that has not been
thoroughly cooked. H. S. Eakins,
Colorado Agricultural college, Fort
Collins, Colo.
