He was an inUexible patriot, and an excellent <lisci- plinarlan, and enthusiast in (lursnit of mililary fame.

The people who have so much .sympaihy for ihose who have gone beyond all earthly help, might use a little of it in every day life to a good and excellent purpose. The idea of kicking people when alive and then for a person to weep over their grave when dead is what too many of us do and is one reason why the world is no better today. Speak your kind words to the living, and when you are dead you need not care whai is said of you. If you love me tell me so, Wait not 'till ihe summer glow Kades in autumn’s changeful light. Amber clouds and purple night; Wait not 'till the winter hours Heap with snow drifts all the (lowers. Till the tide of life runs low— If you love me tell me so. If you love me tell me so, While the river's dreamy flow Holds the love-enchanted hours, Steeped in music, crowned with llowers. Ere the summer's vibrant days Vanish in the opal ha/.e; lire is hushed the music flow— If you love me tell me so. If you love me tell tne so. Let me hear the sweet words low; Let me know, while life is fair While in womanhood's first bloom, lire shall come dark days of gloom, In the first fresh dawning glow— If you love me tell me so.

It is assuujed that when the war ends it will be necessary for all nations to develop as nov4T before their natural r«*- sour<’(*s to make good the wast age of combat and to lift th«> crushing bunlens nf debts which will press every [leoplo actively or passively involveil. rnd4)ubtedly this will sup])ly thourgt'nt necessity of contpell- ing luunanity to attack tlj«M|es- ert an»l Jungh; n*gl(U>s of the world now left to the possession of the jackal and the savage. This thought opens a pleas ing vista of pos.«5ibilitles. In South aiul (’(‘Utral America, In Africa, in .\sia, lies unused millions of acres, untou«‘heil blllio!is (if initi'-ral wealth, uii- estiniatiMl billions' worth of timber, whicli, If tame«|. de veloped exploited on siune in ternational co-oj)ei:itivo basis would not <mly sullii‘t‘t«j pay all the war and rehabilitate all the shattered regions, but to mako woalth. comparatively speak ing, the possession of every family. Truly, out of the wr<‘ck of' civilization, on the material sitle, the world has an open chance to rise in greater splen dor and strength than it has: ever known, to realize the ^ ilream of the prophets of the' goblen age.
