He Wishes to Say
“1 wish to say again,” says Dr.
Dernburg. “that the British blockade
is having no effect upon Germany.”
The only justification so far attemp
ted by Germany of its establishment
the so-called “war zone” in the waters
around the British Isles is that it was
made necessary as a retaliatory meas
ure for the British blockade of Ger
man ports. If that blockade is the
failure which Dr. Dernburg claims it
to be, the lawlessness becomes all the
more inexcusable of the submarine

Climbing at a great pace, he reach
ed Malvern Beacon just as it came
dawn, and stood there on the top,
watching. He had not much aesthe
tic sense; but he had enough to be im
pressed by the slow palling of the stars
over space that seemed infinite, so
little were its dreamy confines visible
in the May laorning haze, where the
quivering crimson flags and spears of
sunrise forged up in a march upon the
sky. That vision of the English land
at dawn, wide and mysterious, hardly
50 miles of
t. It is easier for the inefficient to
“slide through” in a city than in a
hamlet. It is easier to be selfish in a
city, because public opinion is served
for the startling forms of selfishness
and not for the daily little rawness to
which most of us are prone, states a
writer in the Detrit News.
The men who succeed in a small town
do so at the cost of a greater effort
and a more conscientious use of prin
ciples than do the men who succeed
in the large city. This applies to the
profession, business and the trades.
The mechanic who succeeds in the
small community does so at a fairer
proportion between worth and reward
than would be required of him in a big
hurrying, indifferent greedy city.
It is harder to be a country doctor
than to be a city doctor. Not only are
the physical conditions harder—the
long country drives, the lack of hos
pitals which make operations on back-
kitchen tables a commonplace—but the
social conditions are different. The peo
pie discuss their doctors as though these
gentlemen were their private property.
No one is too unlearned or too depend
ent to have an opinion on the doctor's
ability. A doctor who can survive vil
lage practice and keep his spirit sweet
must have an abundance of the grace
of God in his heart. That is why, I
think, those who do survive the test
grow to be such strong, noble old men.
It is harder to be a country minister
than to be a city minister. I speak
neither of lack of books nor of
lack of money—I speak of the
hardness of doing the work. It
was Spurgeon who thanked God that
he had a congregation of 6,000 people,
because, as he said, he had not the
patience nor the grace to deal with a
small church of 100 souls. The bicker
ing and dickering of the average coun
try congregation and the superhuman
tact and energy required of a minister
who would inject a little tincture of
grace into his parish or matter of won
der to any who has studied them.
There is no man who accomplishes
more and gets less tor it and puts
more of his life into it than does the
country minister in his work. A month
in a city parish would be a vacation
The same is true of the country edi
tor. When he writes, it is about his
next-door neighbor. When he advo
cates reform, he attacks his own small
subscription list. When he uses the
editorial “we” everyone knows who
he means and he begins to receive
callers as soon as the paper is mailed.
If he told all he knew—which he
doesn’t—he would need a guard of mil
itia, No one of whom he writes can
lose himself in a crowd, because there
is no crowd. The country editor re
quires and usually possesses the cour
age of daring face to face.
It is harder to form and maintain
convictions in a small community than
in a large one, for in the village this
is a face-to-face matter. The conflict
of minds take on a primitive aspect in
the small town.
It means that the milkman must be
prepared to loose his customers and the
minister his deacons and the butcher
his patrons and the small clerk his job.'
It means that if a man is to maintain
his convictions and his self-respect, he
has got to stand whatever the opposite
party is able to do to him, and some^
times that is not inconsiderable. In
the city one finds himself with the
support of a large and influential party
the small town partisan finds himself
almost alone—absolutely alone when i|
comes to maintaining his statue.
