Robert Wexler, Several of the great financial pan ics of the past have commenced on a Friday and this has given rise to ' one of the pet superstitions of the ! stock exchanges and bourses all over the world that the sixth day of the week is fraught with ill omen for those engaged in financial opera tions. The original "Black Friday" occur red 173 years ago tomorrow, Dec. 6, 1745, in London. On that date the tidings reached the metropolis that the Pretender Bonnie Prince Charlie had reached Derby with his forces. Londoners immediately made prep arations to fly from the city, and a wild Danic prevailed. It was on that occasion that the Bank of England had the closest call In its long his tory. The citizens were anxious to take their money with them in theli flight, and the Bank of England was besieged by an army of depositors. In that crisis the bank escaped bank ruptcy only by the expedient of placing "dummies" in the line to im pede the genuine depositors, and by paying bona fide depositors in small coin. The first "Black Friday" of latter day financial history was in 1866. just about fifty-two years ago, and was due to the failure of one of Lon don's largest banking houses. Three years later Wall Street had a "Black Friday," due to an attempt to en gineer a corner in gold. The worst of all financial "Black Fridays" was that of 1873, when, on Friday, Sept. 18th, it seemed that the whole fi nancial fabric of the New World had crumbled into hopeless ruins. (Written ,by Agnes Repplier for the National Security League, f If there is to be a policy of recon struction in the United States, the first thing to be reconstructed should be the cost of living. Nothing else is so important. Few things are im portant at all by comparison with this universal need. It is no use mincing matters. For the past year, only the well-to-do, the war-workers, and domestic servants have had enough to eat. The price of food has been prohibitive. When a woman who bought a. quart of milk every day last year buys only a pint this year, because that is ail she can afford, her children are ill nourished. When a woman is forced to market this year on the same in come which served her scantily last year (and thousands upon thousands are so forced), her children are ill nourished. It is pitiful to see the de cent poor, the genteel pcor, the poor who strive to hide their poverty from the world, pricing piece after piece of meat in a butcher's stall, and leaving it all unbought. The country has long endured this food shortage, because it wanted its soldiers and its allies to be fed. The first fruits of peace should be, if not plenty, at least some faint approach to plenty. We are told that we must now feed our enemies as well as our allies, and we are ready to do our best. Heaven forbid that we should seek to starve Germany, as Germany starved Belgium and Servia; as shs purposely starved her British prison- ers when she refused to allow the pitying French 'women, to give them a bit of bread. We want no retalia tory measures. That would degrade us to Germany's level. But we do want to nourish our own population before we nourish her's; to bring the price of food within the buying power of Americans before we export it to Eerlin.

The first order of Christian anchor ites established in Palestine was founded by St. Sabas, whose festival is celebrated today, the anniversary of his death in the year 532. This renowned patriarch of the monks of Palestine came of a wealthy family, but a dispute among relatives about the settlement of an estate so dis gusted him that he forsook the worlc and entered a monastery. At tne age of eighteen he went to Jerusa lem, but later sought seclusion In tha wilderness. He made his home in a cave on the top of a mountain. The fame of his holiness spread abroad, and many came to him, desiring to serve God under his direction. H finally founded a new monastery of men who desired "to devote them selves to the praise and service of God without interruption," and gain ed hundreds of adherents. Some of the oldest Christian monasteries in the world, scattered in remote places over the deserts of Asia and Africa, were founded by monks who had received inspiration from St. Sabas. In the latter part of his long life, St. Sabas was the superior-general of a" the authorities of Palestine.

Ulrica was the daughter of Charle3 XI. , of Sweden, and was born in 1680 She governed the kingdom during the absence of her brother, Charles XII. , and' after his death was pro claimed queen. A year later, in 1720, she resigned the crown to her hus band, with whom she shared the honors of royalty. The nobles, how ever, gained ascendency over them and they were obliged to acknowl edge their right to the throne rested on the will of the people. Ulrlco was greatly beloved by her people, and her acquiescence in their de mands for recognition served to strengthen her position. She died in 1741. Her mother, wife of CHarles XI., also bore the name of Ulrica, and died in consequence of the chagrin which her husband's bru tal treatment had occasioned.
