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
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

ST. SAB AS.
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.
