This view no doubt correct, but taxation is recognized as legitimate only In so far ns it i kept within Just limits, and to-day an Individual's talents are ns jrii!rin:-il.v admitted to be his own as Is his wealth. No sooner does n man display a capacity above that of the a vertigo than he becomes n target for the steady and diversified demands of his fellow-citizens. Here, a dignified and deeply learned Vhakesperean scholar is draped out of his retreat to read for the benellt of a school of art needle-work and he may deem himself foituuate if a preface extolling the school's achievement Is not also exacted of his good nature there a former Ambassador Is torn from his distant Western haunts and gently but firmly brought to an Eastern church hail to talk about 1li" Spanish War to an audience of messenger boys. Nor does it make much dif ference If he knows but little of Spain and If his career has led him exclusively through paths of peace. Up Is a personage. The Spanish War is the topic of the day. The people wish to see and bear him; It becomes a public duty. It must pay the tax levied upon his prominence. Indeed, little discrimination is made by the new tyrant as to his victim's qualification for the task imputed upon him. Whether he Is a savant, a litterateur, a statesman, an actor, a journalist, or a diplomat, every man of note, unless he consistently surrounds himself with a frigid atmosphere of chilling selfishness, will sooner or later find himself a slave.

Modern Science. The pick and spade of modern rcientlUc investigations have come to the rescue. Farts of tho old Hiblieal "world have been opened up, and we now find ourselves face to face with the veritable contemporaries of Daniel. Moses, Joseph, Abraham. Within the last two decades the excav.itor has been actively engaged un covering a few cities in the land of Uden. the home of Abraham. Tho Univer sity of Pennsylvania is excavating Nippur, the Biblical name of which is Calneh (Genesis x., 10); the French are excavating Tello, a city which flour ished before Abraham was born, and the Germans are at work upon the tem ple and the "Tower of Babel" In the city of F.abyloi'. The origin of those remarkable Babylonian legends which so closely re semble the Biblical accounts of the Creation, Eden, and the Deluge belongs to this country. Tho Deluge story, for Instance, a3 recorded by the Babylonians is strikingly similar to the Old Testament, even in minor details. Atraehasis, th? Babylonian Noah, Is commanded by the gods, after they had decreed a flood, to build a ship or ark; to pour pitch over the outside and the inside, and to take the seed of life of every kind into the ship. When it was ready, Atrachasis embarked with his family, servants, possessions, cattle and beasts of the field, and closed the door. The heavens rained destruction for six days and nights. The winds raged, the Hoods and storm devastated, until the whole of mankind was turned into clay. The ehip grounded on a mountain of Nizlr. After seven days a dove is sent forth; but it returned, as a resting place It did not find. He then sent forth a swallow; but it also returned. Lastly a raven is let go, which did not turn back. Everything Is then sent forth to the four points of the compass. An altar Is erected and sacrifices of fered. The gods smelt the sweet savor, and gathered like Hies about the sac- rlficer, after which it is decided that, Instead of a deluge, wud beasts and famines shall diminish mankind because of its sins. A number of the tablets containing these legends were written nrcvit the time of Abraham. Woman's Home Companion. S? Jz? Conventioidity Limits the Individual By Margaret Stowe. T Is noticeably evident that common sense and broader thought are gradually doing away with the social conventionalities in life. We have come to realize that to conform to rules and regulations that have no sensible reason for existing means limiting ourselves to a very small circle of thought and action which in so doing make us lose our individuality we become colorless. We will not mention the conventionalities of dress so much as the absurdness of some of the conventionalities of action, such as the newest fashion In walking, handshaking, bowing and other nonsensical rules to be conformed to at home and at social functions. Let us all try to be original and not monotonous. Is there anything more monotonous and absurd than the actions of a roomful of men and women standing In a fashiou-prescribed posture shaking hands either hish in the air or low down, according to the latest whim of this erratic rule of Dame Fashion? The minds of these same people are so taken up with the fear of forgetting themselves or these little rules that their conversation, for lack of real exercise, deteriorates into foolish, senseless chatter. Is it the lack of courage that stands in the way of individuality courage to break away from such inane existence and act one's true self? Then mothers should cultivate courage and strength of conviction in their children. Bring Mary Smith up to be Mary ymiih and not to resemble, so closely that you cannot tell one from the other, a following of marionettes worshipping at the feet of Fashion. The question is asked, "Why don't girls marry?" The distinguishable ones do marry those who are beautiful or magib-tic in some way, whose characters have some definite coloring and who can make themselves in any way con spicuous, not in any undesirable sense, but prominent in character or Individ uality, Mom arc going to choose the girls they can see; those who are completely negative, unnotlceablo, colorless, formless, invisible are left behind. Make the youth of to-day realize that a disposition to imitate a fashion or conform to senseless rules set by others is always a sign of inferior iutcilocf and rudimentary taste. llie time is coining when you will not consider It anything of a compliment 1t have it said that you follow a flock of fashionable imitators. Your life, your actions, your manners, should be unique. What you do and the way you do it should concern you, and not Avhat others think. Got rid of artificiality and allow people to detect the precise man you are. Don't be afraid of being criticised because you dare to stand forth an Indi vidual. Be one, and be natural In your actions. Emerson says, in speaking of conformity and tho criticism that usually follows tho lack of it: "Act singly, and what you have already done singly will justify you now. Ordinarily, everybody in society reminds us of something else, or of some other person. Character, reality, reminds you of nothing else; It takes place of the whole creation."
