Heart to Heart
Talks IS EVERYTHING WELL WITH US? There are no more sick babies to be tende i. There are no more weary mothers to be relieved. In the houses of the poor little chil jreni no longer lift their thin hands for food. The f:rtories hold no tmore child toil et's, with lal-ks we:tried lIy 'ou stant ebonding :nd lhnlds 'i;,i~l ,with work and ey .s blindtliel with Ili' 1h:t. ::nld n iiilnd] s L l lby- it -- at o tiirl'tl lity There ris no more pIisl Irs! to i Throulthot the drk nitI Sal is ogt tness city anil l g the u sliels! "'reis. white ways" walk ,o In ,)ng girls. doomend to lives of indits:ribithl e sad There is no more misery! Throughout the world all is light ness and gayety and happiness. So a woman of Massachusetts has built a house for her twelve Pomer anian dogs! Listen to tie aescripuun vi Lntr Lvu,. Is it not finer than the kennels of many of our poor? "Twelve Pomeranians, each with a whole room to himself, in a house which they have to themselves, take the prize for dog luxury. The dogs have a valet. electric lights, individual beds, a bath twice a day, a back yard to play In, leather chairs and soft rugs to try their teeth on." No, you need not rub your eyes and read again. It is not a description of a sanitarium for sick babies, for heat worn children and their wearied moth ers. It is not a place of rest for poor girls overcome in the battle with the world. It is a palace for DOGS. And a WOMAN built it! In the city in which this woman lives there are great factories of vari ous kinds. There are slums. There are sordid homes of working people. The dog lover need travel only a very short distance from her own luxurious home to find distress and poverty. There is love in her heart. But it is misdirected love. The valet who washes these dogs might be employed in taking out sick children-no doubt, he would prefer to do so, for in the wageworker there is sympathy for the poor. Perhaps his mistress would shrink from the thought. What, her own ser vant come in close contact with the poor! Surely she may read in her Bible how the gentle Saviour washed the feet of his apostles. When the woman of our story en ters her dogs' house no doubt she is greeted by a chorus of barks that tell her of their appreciation of her care of them. But outside the children of the poor wait. WISDOM FROM TE.E FARAPAST. Many centuries ago lived St. John Chrysostom, an early father of the Christian church and one of its wisest and best. His name was John. The surname Chrysostom. which means "golden mouth." was given to him for his eloquent preaching. If you have never read the life of St. John Chrysostorq it will do you 4-ood to read it. It i a record almost -mp aralleled of zeal and earnestness in .ene~ ncing evil, of upholding righteous standards in the midst of corruption. AIt tells of a life lived for God through good and evil report, amidst privations and injustice. SFor nearly twenty centuries the Christian church has had preachers, men who have expounded with beauty the word of God. There has been only one Chrysostom. His "golden tongue" still preaches. -,glides preaching and inveighing --ainst thedteachings of evil, Chrysos toed wrote much. One of the best knoawi of his writings has for its text, " Noone can harm the man who does not injure hirpself." It was true in the time of Chrysos tom, !fifteen centuries ago. It was true before.his day, and it holds good now. .Others;may malign you, may seek to besmirch your -name before men. They may injure your reputation perhaps. y But your character they cannot "tMuch. That no man can harm but yourself. In the business of life, which is the making of a life rather than the mak ýing of a living, an important part is the keeping of one's own self respect :and good opinion. The world may misjudge a man's motives, may set ob stacles in his: path, may defraud him of his rights. 'For a time it may hin der his progress toward the goal which he knows to 'be worthy. In the end the righteous cause triumphs. but too late sometimes for the earthly justifi cation of the man who upheld it. But real. true, lasting injury can come only to a man through his own misdeeds. Others may seek to harm him, but "'No one can harm the man who does not injure himself." A SHORT CUT. IT it is ever your good fortune to sail iup the J.lames river, in Virginia. from Its mouth to Richmond, or if you have already enjoyed that beautiful trip, you will learn or you already know something about the Dutch Gap canal. Near Richmond the canal has been cat to shorten the sailing distance. The canal is only 500 feet long, but ii cuts off seven miles of navigation .along the winding channel of the river As you sail up and down the rivea you travel 500 fte.-: t , sive seven ileiiis Seveu milles tlilllit to 3i0.9010 fiet. so yliil SOee there' i-, a eIt saving in lii'' ald i list:,llwe ]al in y (;eieral Butler lbe-:ln the l)uth Gap , tii in the civil wa, dLays.

Or you may have had a misunder standing with another neighbor or with your brother or sister or relative. As the rivers of your lives meet, cut through the land which blocks the way and straighten the channel. Perhaps-who knows-you may find him shovel in hand at the other end. digging his way through to you. Then when the waters of reconcilia tion meet there will be rejoicing, as there wias when the Dutch Gap canal was cut through. WOMAN'S PATIENCE. When the world wants to express its appreciation of patience under trials and difficulties it turns for example to a man! It speaks of Job. the mni of Uz, who had boils and was visited by certain holy men. It tells of St. Simon Stylites, who stood on the pillars for thirty-seven years. It recites with fine appreciation the patience of Lincoln during the trying days of the great w'ar or repeats the tale of Washington's endurance in the winter of Valley Forge. Wrong, all wrong! In the lives of the wives and mothers of men a:id of their maiden sisters are to be found in everyday oc.currenle better examples of patience than any men can show. Man's bearing of the burden is shown in the great affairs of life that are comparatively easy to sus tain. Woman's comes into play in the little, nagging trifles which, added up. amount ipl the aggregate to great sums Take, for example, this case of a wo man in Chicago who was deserted by her husband forty-seven times. Forty six times she forgave him and took up anew the load of living with him. Forty-six times! Then her spirit re belled and she haled him to court. "She waited too long," you say. Agreed. But think of the patience of the woman and then take out the markers from the books wherein are recorded the patient deeds of men. "He only lived with me a day or. two at a',:tme." said the brave Chicago wo man, jvho has worked hard for the support of her little ones. "We have three children, and they hardly know him. In the six years we have been married he left me forty-seven times. I don't want to see him any more. He never gives me a cent for support." The man in the case admitted the record. He was sent to jail when he told the judge he would not contrib ute torthe support of his wife and chil dren. How many men, do you think, would continue to love and forgive women who had deserted them forty-six times? Not many! Only a woman's loving kindness., strong to bear and suffer for the sake of her children. could do it. "BOARDED UP." In the hot weather in the city, whenr the houses cast no refreshing shadows such as lie under the trees and along the fence rows ie the country, there are two melancholy sights. One of them is to be seen in the slums. There men and women and little children sweat and pant and live their lives among sights and sounds and odors which defile the air and make it pestilential The other lies "uptown," where the wealthy folks live-when they are in town. Now they are summering by seashore or lakeside or in the cool, breezy mountains. Their houses stand tenantless, with doors and windows boarded up. You may walk along row after row of houses of the wealthy without find ing one open. In the slums the gutters swarm. In the rich districts you may walk squares without seeing any one save an occasional watchman or caretaker The quarters of the wealthy are al most as deserted as the ruins of Baby lon. At night one might almost hear in fancy the hooting of the owl and the yelping of the jackal that make the silence more pronounced in the wreck that was Nineveh. Too often do the rilch board up them selves as well as their houses. Be tween them and their brothers. the poor, is a wall of gold that shuts oul human sympathy. They are "boarded up." They hoard their treasures of wealtl and art as in summer they close ul their mansions. In winter the house are occupied for a brief time betweel flittings to winter resorts. Most of th year the town houses are closed. So it is with their sympathies. The: L close them up as they do their houses r Every city, every town and villa ha its dividing line bet ween its rich dis trict and its poor quarter. Ieyond it the poor may nlt pass and the rich do l.nt are to traivel. They board thenselves up. Not all. ,f course. Some there be ho, keel oieli all the year round the houses of their love and brotherliness. who do not inclose thelmselves within their own i four walls anlld forget the wvorhl without. Of such are the true philanthropists, "lovers of man." who work in hot weather and in cold for the advance mnent of their fellow men. They are inivestedl with the sense of the brother ho od of man, antd they: garb thenaselves in the robes of charity aind forget the richt rai neut to whi-h, in virtue of their worldly wealth, they are en titled Which, think you, shi.te the britghtet'r? DO YOU WALK LIKE A CHIMPANZEE? Next timne you visit the city zoo or a c'iu."s inotice the r'himllpltn ee. Watch hlt wlhen he wav:lks. The .hiimlpantlzee is the most intelli gent. most nuttnlike of the tp.es- lie is our nearest cousini in the aninal world. When he walks he stands erect, or nearly so. But he walks with his hands to the ground-not with the palms of his hands or the fingers touching the earth, as a man would walk If he were to go on all fours, but with the hacks of the hands touching the ground. An awkward mode of progression! Yet some hIumn' folks go through life with their '::.,n' t' - oretically touching the grot:lud T .'" do no rise erect to front wv!h u!ndalinted brow the facts of life .. . -....uble along as does the chimpanzee. When your walk In life leads you en tirely through the morass of selfish in terests You walk like the chimpanzee. When you cannot turn aside in your business of money getting to consider other interests You have the backs of your hands to the ground. Whencyou forget that there are oth ers on earth besides yourself with claims on your thoughts and your sym pathies You are bent over like the chimpan zee. If the chimpanzee ages ago could have raised himself erect, could have taken his hands from the ground above all, if lihe could have developed his thumb into the marvelous instru ment of precision and strength whlch the hIllmttan thumlib is- lie would no longer be a :-himpan 7. c, an ape. Iie would be a man While you iumita:te the chimpanzee and bond over, absorbeld in the things of earth, with no power to raise your arns and walk mentally and spiritually You are in danger of degenerating into a mental chimpanzee. Raise yourself! Get up! Extend your mental horizon! The chimpanzee looks like a man. He can.be taught tricks which resem ble. In a funny way, some of the things that men do. But so long as he sticks to his habit of bending over to the earth he will remain a chimpanzee. His brain can not develop while his back is bowed. If you hre not as far removed from the mental state of the chimpanzee as you should be. learn to think, to raise yourself from the earth. So long as the world exists the man shall rule and the chimpanzee shall be subject to his power. Golf Ballistics. I do not see why all the irventions which have been applied to other pro jectfres should not be utilized for the purpose of persuading the golf ball to go where it is wanted to go. There ought to be a sight on, every golf club, as there is on every ride, so that one might take aim properly. Every golfer ought to carry a range finder, which would enable him to calculate the length of his approach shot. of his chip shot on the edge of the rreen and of his approach putt. I think- it would also be well if the golfer could be pro vided with a little instrument for measuring the strength of the wind, the density of the air, the stiffness of the hlad'es: of grass on the green and the gradient of its slopes. It would be 1well if some great mathemartician were to compile, a series ofetables giving the amount of borrow in the case of every timaginable combination of slopes. wrinkles. undulations and, crow's feet. What we want in golf is a stream of facts instead of a stream of guesses. For instance. we want to know wheth er the green is fast or slow and how fast and how slow. Surely it would be lpossible to invent a speedometer for Sgreens!--tLndon Opinion. A Great Diplomat. Metteraich was a dijlomatist of the old school, polished, suave, impenetra ble. Ncthing ever persuaded him to betray an emnotion. When in 1813 he left Napoleon after his last audience the generals gathered round him to see what impression the interview had made upon his face. "I don't think I satisfied their curiosity," said he. with a characteristic pride in his grave and cunninu demeanor. At the sime timle he looked with a jealous eye ul:on hiu craft. He hated what he cn!led "the policy of e"oism. the policy of good pleasure." In his view the rivet states were all members of human society, of which reciprocal forbearance was the first duty. "Do not unto others." said he. "that which you would not have others do to you." An inflexible bu reaucrat, he preserved his principles inviolate, and thus he was able to look back upon a singularly uniform career He adopted for his device "la force dans le droit," and he was certain that the right was always on his side.
