Sometimes the United States is referred to as a
Christian nation.
And sometimes a thing occurs which enables us
to see just what sort of Christianity we have to
prove the claim withal.
Such a thing occurred the other day in New
York City. A workingman had saved up nearly
$300. He appeared on the street and began giving
this money away. To any who wanted he gave.
At once people in authority were charged with
the duty of classifying this man. Why did he give
money away? He was not a millionaire. He needed
and had actually earned this money. He seemed to
be giving it to others because he wanted them to
have it.
It gave him more pleasure to give something he
himself actually could use than to use it himself.
A Christian community, so-called, never thought
of classifying him as a Christian.
A i>oople who were familiar with the letter of
the Golden Rule, never thought that this man
might have thought, "I have |300. I cannot keep
it while others want. I should not desire others to
keep $300 while I wanted. Therefore, according to
the command 'Whatsoever ye would that men
should do to you, do ye even so to them,' I cannot
keep $300 while others are in want. So I will give
it away."
So they took this incomprehensible man away
and held an inquest to see what sort of insanity he
was afflicted with!
Yet, in Jesus's day those Christians who learned
directly of Him did the very thing this man was
called crazy for doing. They sold all they had and
gave to the poor.
They were communists, "having all things in
And another crazy thing existed —we are told
that "none wanted."
They were poor, but they felt no poverty.
Neither would any feel poverty today if all
men would do wisely what this New York working
man did unwisely. There is enough for us all, if
the Golden Rule were kept.
Enough for all, were not real Christians so far
from our souls as to seem insanity.
Jesus would be adjudged crazy in any American

Friend—"Why did you discharge your errand boy?"
Butcher—"Customers complained he was too slow; said ha took
so long that when they ordered veal it arrived as beef."
Wo laugh at the way that he swaggers and poses
And talks of his triumphs in various parts,
We grin at the tale which he grandly discloses.
And yet—there 1b sympathy deep in our hearts;
For his ii a life which is brief in its glory
And long, oh, so long, in its struggle and strain!
Who minds if he boasts of a fame transitory
And tells of It over and over again?
For when on the stage he Is placing before ub
The passion and beauty and wonder of. life,
The work of the masters who never can bore us.
The love and the laughter, the stress and the strife.
He makes us forget, for the time, all the real,
The everyday world, In the world of romance;
He wakes us again to our youthful ideal
When love was a melody, life was a dance!
And this he must do, though his own heart Is breaking,
Though life has been cruel and fortune a Jade;
Though fame stays a day and is years in the making,
The "play is the thing," and the role must be played!
He serves us full well where the footlights are gleaming,
So give him his "bravo," his glad curtain call,
And leave him in peace to his boasts and his dreaming—
He's earned thorn, in truth, and he's paid for them all!

The Times Daily Short Story
Hy Harold Carter
When Nathangon returned from
Europe to his old haunts along
the diamond grounds In Kiruber
ley, he found a general disposi
tion to let bygones be bygones. It
was three years since he had left
the country to avoid conviction
for complicitly in the purchase of
stolen diamonds. Witnesses were
dead or had disappeared. More
over, It was known that lie had
come back but with the wreck of
his former fortune.
Only ou« man was implacable—
VanGlahn, once manager of the
Ruyter mine—now In control as
president. They met In the club.
"I don't Intend to allow any
stealing from my mine, Nathan
son," shouted the angry Dutch
man, remembering how many
times he had been outwitted by
his adversary. "I warn you.,
Nathanson, I'll spend my whole
fortune to convict you."
"My dear Van Olahn," said

Nathanson, "I'm not going to
steal. Why should I steal from
you when It's so much easier to
take? I'm going to get control of
your diamond mine, and you're
going to pay mo for taking it."
That was the declaration of
war. The Ruyter mine was the
only Dutch mining company, and
was owned by some two thousand
stockholders, mostly scattered
throughout the country. Of the
2000 shares, 1200 at le.ist were
held by obscure persons who were
never heard of, never voted, ana
would never sell their holdings.
Of the 800 that came on the mar
ket Van Olabn controlled nearly
one-half; the balance were traded
in around £120. Van Glahn kept
his brokers constantly on the
alert, and it was Impossible for
N'athanson to outbid him.
There remained three months
before the annual meeting. Nath
anaon had left for parts unknown.
That ho was not inactive, how
ever, -was seen when the shares
suddenly leaped up from 120 to
135. The next day they opened
at 140. By nightfall they had
Friday, Oct. 11,1912.
reached 160. Before the week
was ended they were at iOO. And
as fast as he could Van Glann
took them In.
"It's a devil of a sacrifice," he
groaned to the vice president.
"It'll cost me a stiff price when
the slump comes, bat I've got to
keep control away from that dia
mond thief."
Two weeks before the board
met the prioe suddenly dropped.
Van Glahn had lost £50,000 —
but he held the shares. He -was
In possession of all but a\ insig
nificant portion ef those that had
come on the market. When ho
saw Nathaneon stalk sullenly into
the board room he taunted hliu
"So you're going to take my
mine away, what?" ho Bneered.
"I move that the present of
ficers be re-elected for the next
year," said the vice president,
"Seconded," cried the secretary.
"Hold hard," said an insignifi
cant member. "I move that Mr.
Nathanson be appointed in place
of Mr. Van Glahn."
"Vote, vote!" cried the vice
president. impatiently. Eight
hundred votes against the motion.
How many for?"
"Eleven hundred and fifty,"
said Nathanson, coolly, rising
from his seat.
And before the astonished eyes
of the board he tumbled proxies
out of his bulging pockets; prox
ies from the Fr*>e State, proxies
from Cape Colony, from the baek
'woods, scrawled, illegible, badly
s|>elled, but Indubitably proxies.
The vice president counted them
in an Intense silence.
"The motion is carried," ho
said In a whisper. And Van Gluhn
reeling like a man la a fever,
stumbled out of the chair and
from the room.
"What did you pay for them?"
cried the members, crowding
around Nathanson.
"Ten pounds apiece," said Na
thanson, briskly. "I spent three
months traveling up and down tha
country among the shareholders.
They were suspicioirs at first, but
after all £10 is £10, they didn't
care who had control. That's my
motto, boys; it'g easier to buy
men than anything else. Poor
Van Glahn hadn't a thought above
purchasing shares; he hasn't a
head for business. These proxies
cost me eleven thousand five
hundred—every cent I had; but
he spent a good fifty thousand
trying to control the stock mar
ket. By the way, I got that fifty
thousand he dropped on Ruyters.
I said short."
