For ccnluries the basket maker has been a picturesque sight in old Naples where the trade runs in the same fam ily for generations. The basket maker is omnipresent, either plaiting or sell ing his wares in every direction, for in. no other city under the sun are they used for so many purposes, from cradles for babies to fish receptacles, and a covering for "wine bottles*.

The president has sighed a proo isir.atioii adding 29.-H0 acres to (he Crook national forest. Arizona. The lands added are located in the Win chester mountains and southwest of the Galiuro division of the Crook forest. They are rough and broken in char acter and are not suitable for agricul tural purposes. Practically the entire tract is covered with a stand of nak, juniper, and <edar timber of fair qual ity.

Ark;in iuo? several diamond mines j that have turned out about n.OOO dia- j nionds valued at about $20,000. The : geological formation in which the gems 1 are found is called peridotite and is akin to the famous South African kim berlite. It occurs in chimney.? like those of South America. The Arkan sas mines have been neglected during the war. With diamonds increasing in price and popularity, it is said, the mine owners ore- making plans toi work, their properties in a more ex tensive and systematic way. Generally a Working Out of the Law of Compensation. Undoubted Fact That Opposition or Hardship Tends to Bring Out the -Best There is .in Man's Composition. "I wish I cor. Id slide along in busi ness as easily as George Seagrave," said John Nelson, as he joined his father in the library after dinner. "What's up now?"' asked his father. i It. 2 : ? . .

John, n ad the more i see of it the more. I'm convinced it's a capital arrangement. I u:*ed to feel as. you do, hut I've lived h>ng. enough to see a great many tilings adjust themselves. T lie re is a law of com pensation at work, u:.v; boy, and no class b;;s al! the advantages. It would be a very poor world if we all siid along as easily as George does.'" "AVI: at do you mean by that?" asked the sen. "Just this: it takes opposition or hardship, or whatever you please to call it, to bring out the best in us and make us good for anything. You know the old saying, 'It's three gener ations from shirt sleeves to shirr sleeves.' A man goes out in his shirt sleeves and gets bis living, but he de cides that bis children shall have more opportunity than he, so he gives them an education. The sons make money by their educational advantages, and they pass it on to their sons, who have never known the struggle of acquisi tion. The sons' sons go through it. And so Hie shirt-sleeve process begins again. It doesn't always happen so, but it happens with sufiicent regularity to form the basis of a proverb. The ex ception proves the rule." "Yes, but It neofclu't be so," replied riio hoy. v "I know that," replied the father, "but there is enough truth la it to prove what I wmrt to say. Even God himself put the Jews through the proc ess of adversity to whip them into shape. It was only about four hundred miles in a bee Hue across the wilder ness. But God made the Jews take forty years to get to Canaan, because he wanted to toughen them and make them ready for the conquest, when he ^ot them there. The Bible says ho 'led them not through the way of tlu land of the Philistines, although thaf was near.' They would have got there too quickly to stand the hardship. And if they had defeated the Philistines fhev would have been unprepared fot a still worse enemy; I mean the opu lence and plenty of Canaan.

It makes all the difference whether a closed door i> a final rebuff or an invitation to battle through. I'm more afraid of a cheap and easy success fyr you than I am of struggle. If you struggle before yo: achieve, -'you will have character te hold you steady when success arrives The trouble with many persons is thai hey have no character to go with their acquisitions.

A great Methodist Church, orocted and maintained by the Methodist Fpiscopal Church, South, will b? erected amid the ruins of Ypres, In Belgium. This watr atated by Dr. W. B. BeauchamP. director general of the Centanafry Commission, who, with Bishop James Atkins, the bishop in charge of European mission fields, just returned from Belgium. The city of Ypres, terribly devaa* tated, will not be rebuilt in its aptirety. The once magnificent Cloth Hall, the finost in the world, the Cathedral, the town hall; the churc'ies, and other large ruins will be left as a perpetual memorial. On these the city mayor has caused signs to be erected reading: "This is holy ground. No stone of this fab ric may be takon away. It Is a bert? tnge for all civilized peoples," A Qity of Memorials, Ypres is a city of memorials. Th* British go. ej-nment has selected a site icd will e?ect a great museum as * monument to her falleq heroes. Similar buildings will be built by , Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Belgium. In the midst of these memorials th9 Southern Methodist Church will bo erected. It will contain a library!, reading room and social equipment, in addition; to its auditorium a n<| class room#, ? "Ypres will always be a mecca for travelers,' - said Dr. Beauchamp. 'Thousands and millions will flock to., that battlefield. Our Church will not july minister to the people of Ypresx and the surrounding territory, but it will, also serve these visitors." Great Plant in Brussels. Met'.cdi3ts have also purchased a great imjlding in Brussels, which will be their headquarters for Europe. It will co lt&in offices#, an auditorium, reading and lecture rooms, a publish ing plant an 4 social equipment. The general secretaries of the twc? _ Prote3ta t bodies of Belgium, the itate Chhrch and the free Church, will aave c; I.es in this building, thu? making It the Protestant center of Belsium. Scuthor.v-r.Iethodists have also pui> chased a lujf interest in the Protest a: t ho~:?ital of Brussels. It will be 3: large 1 and its capacity will bo ioublcc. Relief Stations Established. Dr. Beauchamp reported that thou* sands of children will freeze to death this winter, because the Germans flooded the mines and filled them with concrete, thus making it impossible tor the people to obtain fuel. "Children, with their mothers," said Or. Beauchamp, "are ncr,- living ia hn abando~e4 trenches and dug-outi aft by t'ie enamy." In ordar to cope with the situation .lis Methodists have arranged to open stations at Ypro3.
