To many a young man "going to the wrar" has another meaning than that of (acing danger, perhaps meeting death. )Of course, no man really wishes to be tilled or wounded, but, after all, his fa ther or his grandfather took the :lmance, and he would not wish to do mss than they, says Columbia (S. C.) State. But it does go hard with many - lad to face the prospect of giving up a comfortable living, a place of some little consequence, perhaps, in his small world, a berth which he has won for himself by the sweat of his I brow or the not less laborious sweat of Ins brlin. All his store of business knowledge goes for naught and he must start over again at an unaccus tomed trade to carve out a new niche in whichl he can take his place. There is something pathetic in this, but there is ulso much of the Inspiring. For how many of our young men have done or will dti just that-nabandon the tasks they know and like for tasks which they do not know and which they never will 1i ,-rn to like? But they do not grumble at the need. "The serf." as the old Saxon motto puts it, "has a warm seat by the fire, while the free man fart's to the fight." But who of the y^ung Americans of today would not rather be the free man in danger and trouble than a serf in safety? It is not doctrine that will save the world. Nearly all of it is man's view made up of small experience and varied facts. Truth does not come that way. It comes through the heart and not through the head. The neglect to recognize this idea is what tears politics, society, religion into shreds. There are 100 churches in this country holding different doctrines, and new ones are constantly and incessantly springing up. This is because of the false notion of independence and a de termination to do one's own thinking. That is the course which makes men drift farther apart in religion. The thing to do to correct this tendency is to substitute faith for belief. The for mer is of the heart, the latter of the mind. One is an attitude, the other an uncertainty. How can the situation be improved? Simply by practicing faith in God and loving one's fellow-crea tures, says Ohio State Journal. We talk about church union. This Is the only way to reach it-forget doctrine and grow the fruits of the spirit. One effect of the British conscription act has been to take many men from service on Atlantic liners. The execu tive officers are not disturbed, but fire men and seamen under forty-one years of age are likely to be taken for the army, necessitating the employment of older men in their places. All the waiters and bedroom stewards under the age named are also liable to be conscripted for the war. Their places will be supplied in many instances not by old men, but by young women. Stewardesses have looked after women passengers in their cabins for the last 75 years. It is safe to expect a con siderable increase in the number of stewardesses and also the employment of women lastead of men to perform the service of waiting on table on the oean liners. Late statistics show that uneducated laborers earn on the average $500 per annum for 40 years, a total of $20,000; high-school graduates earn on the av erage $1,000 a year for 40 years, a to tal of $40,000. This additional edu cation requires 12 years of schooling of 180 days each, a total of 2,160 days of school. If that many days adds $20,000 to the income of life, then each day at school adds $9.02. The child that stays out of school to earn less than $9 per day is losing money, not making money. The account of the deeds of the at ators in the battle of Messines sounds more like flights of the liveliest imagi nation than like sober fact. What the future will develop in aerial activity can only be guessed at, judging by the achievements of the present. This new and wonderful military art is go lng to be among the chief factors in revolutionzing modern warfare. A mistake In keeping dates revealed the fact that a San Francisco man had two wives and two homes. The mod ern Solomon must either be a coal baron dr a food speculator.

The woman writer who wants to I know "Why do men prefer second-rate women?" may not have guessed that it's because they know second-rate Swomen are plenty good enough for them. It is now proposed to eliminate the teaching of German from the public schools. Some of us have wondered all along what it was put there for. Just as the women in England are taking to overalls, the men are con sidering returning to skirts, in the shape of kilts.

The sixteenth and seventeenth cen turies developed a large number of persons who brought the crime of pol. soning to an art. None attained great er perfection in this than the march ' loness of Brinvilliers. She was the daughter of Dreux D'Auhray, a high official in the reign of Louis XIV. In 1651 she was married to the marquis of Brinvilliers. heir to an enormous fortune. She herself brought a consid erable dowry. She was a woman of prepossessing appearance and great charm. She lived happily with her husband until one Sieur Godin, commonly known as St. Croix. was introduced into the family. The marquis took a great liking to him, and St. Croix made his home with the aristocratic couple. The march ioness soon fell in love with the ad venturer. De Brlnvilliers had St. Croix imprisoned in the Bastille. Ii"re the latter met an Italian who was an adept in poisons, and he taught St. Croix his arts. When the latter was released, after a year's confinement, he resumed his acquaintance with the mmarhioness, but more cautiously. The Italian came out of prison and entered the services of the pair. They at once entered into schemes to poison the woman's father, her two brothers and her sister, so as to get possession of the family fortune. They succeeded in all cases except that of the sister. Yet they escaped suspicion and would have gone free had it not been for an accident. While mixing poisons the mask worn by St. Croix fell from his face and he was suffocated by the poisons he was pre paring for others. Then the whole dark tale was unfolded and all were condemned to death. HOME OF EMPRESS JOSEPHINE Fort de France on Island of Marti, nique Interesting as Birthplace of Napoleon's First Wife. The little town of Fort de France on the island of Martinique in the French West Indies is of the greatest lanter est to travelers, because it was the early home of Empress Josephine, the first wife of Napoleon. She was the daughter of a French army officer who lived on a large estate about five miles from the town. Here Josephine was born in 17603 and here she lived until she was married to her first husband. Beauharnaise, when she was sixteen years old. The future empress seems to have had much education and to have lived the simple life on a West Indian plan tation. The site of her birthplace is still known and it is delightfully situ ated in a grove of trees near the banks of a small river. A certain pool in this stream is still known as the bath of the empress. and here the creole beauty, according to local tradition, al ways took her morning plunge. After her separation from Beauhar nalse Josephine returned to Marti nique and to the quiet life of the little Ssland. Passages from her diary at that time show that she was very fond of her rambles in the woods and of the quaint, easy social life of the place. She passed three years there with her little daughter before returning to France to become the wife of a world conqueror and one of the most famous beauties of Europe. A statue of the empress has been erected in the square at Fort de France. It conveys a chapming im pression of the woman who for a time ruled the man of destiny and of whom "he said that she was a mistress of thei art of pleasing Finds Volcano is Hottest at Top. Notwithstanding what the old text books say, it now appears that a vol cano is hottest on its surface. This is the conclusion drawn by a scientist who has made extensive investigaptions in craters In Hawaii and has obtained samples of gases and lava before they reached the air. Laboratory studles of these samples make It appear that much of the heat required to keep an open lava bast in in fluid condition is supplied by the chemical asetion of the gases. From these investigations the scientist concludes that in times of great activity the temperature at the surface of a volcano undoubtedly is higher than that below the surface. PreMstorlo Japanese Canoe. Workmen engaged in the dry rives bed of the Nmmasue-gawa, Osaka pre fecture, have unearthed a huge canoe made of camphor wood. It has not yet been completely uncovered, but the part so far dug out measures over 40 Sfeet In length, 6 feet in width and 26 inches in depth. There are traces of the canoe having been colored blue. Atcording to archeologists the canoe li about one thousand years old, and though several similar canoes have been discovered in various parts of the ·country, nothing like the present one in size has been found.-East and West News. Flagmake's Art an Exacting One. The flsagmaker's art is an exacting i one and many modern descendants of IBetsy Ross are employed by the Brook lyn flag master. Much skill Is re quired to make such a flag as that of Venezuela, which has a prancing horse upon t. A special machine has been designed for cutting the white stars used in our own Sag. These are of eight sizes, and every year many thou. I sands of such stars go into fags made by government employees. These stars vary from two inches to fourteen inches In diameter. !OJemaT "iEblll says he will not let the American, English, French ad Eassa schools in Syria and Palestie open after the war. Puhaw, Is't that -olag to ha too bad? MEN'S WAGES FOR WOMEN. The reports received from chamber of commerce in the principal cities of the United States by the National American Woman Suffrage association on the question of women's wages dur ing the war will not give greater plea. ure to the suffrage organization than to all other good citizens. The officers of the association announced assur ances from almost every city In the United States that women who do the work of men taken from their ordinafy occupations for war duties shall be paid the wages the men received, to which is added an expression of the organization's gratification, says Pitts burgh Dispatch. The women who made the survey offer no claim to have influenced employers or trade bodies anywhere In favor of female workers, leaving the inference that no one had Intended doing other than paying wornm en equal wages for equal service, but it is not difficult to understand that this may become effective shrapnel ma terial in the suffrage campaign. In the course of practical events the woman suffrage association may dis c'over that what may be done under the spur of expediency at one period say a world war-may not he done at another when the bite of the spur is absent-say in time of profound peace, and it would be interesting to know how far this has entered into their ex pectations.
