Broiher lo ihe bruie, of black barbaric deed, I saw you make poor Belsium groan and bleed; I saw you crucify in Northern France, As otien always as you had the chance, A woman's honor and a child's pure soul, Whai shall you answer when God calls the roll? You are a demon with Kres and fumes of hell; And think you not that history's page shall tell To men unborn your base barbaric tale; It shall be told; for history does not fail! You shall not curse the world and to unwhipped. Those whom your brutal blood-lusi starved and stripped. Shall lay the scourage in deep and scarlet stripe, Woe unto you when vengeance groweth ripe ! If not so now—grim as your fate must be-. You shall become the scorned of history; You link your name with Ninevah and Tyre— A wild beast playing with Promethean fire! Beware, beware, the pale white ranks that grow, A mist oF blood clings to their words of snow; Pale babies, wan mothers—millions strong they come; You shall not win; Death beats your funeral drum ! —John Jordan Douglass. GOD’S CHILDREN, POK WHtiN THE SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS EVER SHOULD LET LHEIR TIGHT SHINE THAT THE WORLD MAY SEE COD’S RAINBOW. The rainstorm had passed, and the black clouds were retreating in the easL The sun was near setting, but its face was clear and bright, and the world was beautiful and clean and glistening with raindrops. In the sky hung the rainbow. God’s promise to man that the world is saft in His keeping forever. The great lamp in the sky, shining down through millions of rain drops, made the spectrum, which we call a rainbow because it comes with the rain. How beautiful it was I But it was only the sunlight broken into the colors that compose it. Each had its own place and its own beauty. The rainbow would not have been the perfect picture It was with any of the colors gone. There is another Sun and another Rainbow. Christ, called the Sun of Righteousness, is the "light of the world,” the true light or the white light. He shines for the world through his people, for He said, "Ye are the light ot the world." The light of Jesus Christ is broken up into the many different colors as it passes through the lives of his people. None of us can be all that Christ is, the pure white light, bU( we can have our place in his spectrum or his sunshine. He wants his people to be the world’s rainbow to beautify the dark cloud of sin and sorrow and death that has covered ihe world through us. As some of the rainbow colors are more brilliant than others, so some of Christ's people on earth make a greater showing than others; but each one of us is a part of Him if we shine with his light. He does not want us to iry to be something that we are not, but to be that part of Himself that He has given us to be. He wants us to do our besl and 10 be content that He has thought fit to shine through us. How important it is these days, when darkness has covered the world and men are inclined to doubt and despair, that God's children, for whom the Sun of Righteousness ever shines, should let their light also so shine that ihe world may see God's rainbow outlined bravely and hopefully against the angry cloud of war. SLACKeRS OiD i N£W BY CYRUS TOWNSEND BRADY. The papers chronicle day by day the steady advauce of the British soldiers northward through Palestine. Their lines ex tend from the Jordan to the sea and they are slowly but surely driving the Turks before them in this latest, greatest and most decisive crusade. If the followers of Mahomet can make any stand against the followers of Christ it will surely be in the plain of Kfidraelon, one of the natural battleftelds of the world. It is singular how some places lend themselves inevitably to conflict. The plain of Jezreel, to give it another nanio» is one of these. It has been fought over continually since Thothmos tlefeatcd the Hittites in the dawn of recorded history. Jew and (Jontile; Canaanite,As syrian, Babylonian, Scythian, Persian, Oreek and ttoman con tested for its mastery in the East; Kngiish, French, Italian, Qerman, Arabian, and Turk from Godfrey and Kichard and Saladin to Napoleon drenched its fertile soil with blood in more modern times. May the forthcoming ho the last of its many battles, and Allenby the last of the long line of crusaders. One of the most decisive of its contiicts upon the plain oc curred in 1290 B. 0. when Barak, the Lightning, inspired by Deborah led ten thousand men down the slopes of Mount Tabor in a night onfall and surprise of the army of the oppressor, Jabin of Hazor, under the command of Sisera, The Hazorites were disastrously defeated, driven in panic terror down the narrow cut by the Kishon, then in full flood, and killed or drowned in large numbers. Deborah made a great song about the triumph. One stanza runs this way; ‘‘Curse ye Meroz, waid the Angel of the Lord, curse ye bitterly the inhabitants thereof; because they came not to the help of the Lord, to the help of the Lord against the mighty.” No one knows where Meroz lay. No ruined vestiges remain to identify it. There is no other mention of it in the pages of history. There is no ground even for speculation about it Yet for over thirty-two centuries it has been pilloried in its infamy in that immortal song. Whatever its prosperity and its works, whatever its hopes and achievements, the loves and hates, the successes or failures, of its people—they are all forgotten in the blistering, withering condemnation of the singer. It stands as a place accursed forever. Perhaps its utter oblivion is the re sult of the merited condemnation. Shall there be written against our oity, against our land, the curse of Meroz!'' Shall we apply to these and to ourselves this slackers' text? Or shall we come to the help of the Lord today, tomorrow and foreTer, in the great conflict now, and at all times, being waged in Europe and everywhere against sin and the devil ? Curse ye Meroz? Non nobis, Domino—Not unto us. Oh Lord! Children Ory FOR FLETCHER'S Children Ory FOB FLETCHER'S CASTORIA COLDS ARE COSTLr LUXURY. ' Can Usuaiiy Be Avoided by Pol- lowinif Carefully « Few Simple Kules, It Is Declared. (U>mmon colds have bcon os- timutod to cost the populations ' of certain states $;j,im)o,(hio a, year. Ueally, considering tlie advanced prices of medicine and the wages lost, only the well-to-do can afford to catch | cold, tile New Haven Times- ! Leader observes. But in this matter the poor est can become philanthropistH. Whoever mnnages to get through without his aniiuul sneezing or coughing spell is conferring a benefit on the | wliole community. There two ways of cutting the high cost of colds for your own srke and of proving your self a public benefactor as wi*ll; 1, Avoid exposiir«* to infec tion when a uuanber of the family brings a cold germ into tiie house, and if you cateh a cold, sneeze and cough behind your handkerchief and avoid infecting others. 2. Drink two quarts of wa ter a day; sleep with your Jbed- room windows wide open—nev er mind the weather outside— cover up: sit, stand and walk erect, and walk every day in the open air; keep clean: eat slowly and do not eat too much. Holiday feasts are responsible for many a hard cold. Build up your vitality and your physical resistance and taking cold will cease to be a part of your yearly history and a tux on your income.
