Observations of Passing Events.
Hon. William Jennings Bryan stands out before the world
as one of the most conspicious examples of concientious Chris
A Christian Statesman.
in the State of Maryland he was invited to deliver a political
address. A hall had beed secured and the announcement made
without Mr. Bryan's knowledge, and perhaps twelve hundred
people had gathered to hear him discuss political issues. He
promptly and positively refused to desecrate the Christian Sab
bath in any such way. This was altogether commendable and
clearly demonstrated that the great statesman has more regard
for the proper observance of the Christian Sabbath than for his
own political interest. Good men of all political parties will
hold him in much higher esteem, whether they agree with his
polical principles or not, bcauso of the moral excellency of his
character, and his positive stand against Sabbath-breaking and
for civic rightousness. Let all the people praise this celebrated
American for the honor he places upon the Sabbath. The ex
ample he sets is a noble one.

"Rapid, Intense, Sustained."
One of the great advantages of a
college training or its equivalent is
that it helps us to clip the corners,
to take short cuts in our methods of
doing things; we learn to focus the
mind and to hold it upon one thing
continuously and vigorously. The
college-trained young man or woman
ought to accomplish a great deal
more than one who has not had these
four years of mental training and
We often hear people say that it is
a pity to spend the four most valua
ble years of one's life in college; but
there are innumerable instances of
men who have so trained their minds
that they have been able to accom
plish more in a single year after
leaving college than they could have
in two or three years without the
training, so that they have actually
saved time by the discipline which
has enabled them to work intensely

vard students; "You ought to obtain

The Put-Off Feeling.
"I purposed to write some weeks
ago," said a friend, "but yielded to
the put-off feeling." No explana
tion of what he meant by the put-off
felling was needed, for we have all
felt it. It is a feeling, an insidious
and powerful something which seizes
upon the mind and paralyzes energy.
But it is a highly dangerous feeling,
which weakens the will, undermines
character, and makes unhappiness.
It grows with indulgence. A man
who puts off a thing which should be
done today will find it harder to do
that thing tomorrow. Continued in
dulgence will bring one to the point
when the very fact that someting
must be done now will constitute a
well-nigh conclusive reason why it
should be put off. He can't do it
now, simply because it must be done
now. Certainly all his life he has
been yielding to the put-off feeling,
and now that something must be
done promptly, the same put-off feel
ing asserts its power; all the more
because it must be done now. Some
one has denned an educated man to
be one who can bring all his energies
into play instantly at the call of
duty. Instantly! The people who
do things are those who have this in

Some More Don'ts.
Don't, if you are a girl, allow your
acquaintances to say anything in
your presence that cannot be said in
the presence of your parents.
Don"t allow ridicule of sacred
things to go unrebuked.
Don't laugh at such ridicule and
don't repeat it.
Don't be led into doing things
harmful to others because those
things are not harmful to you. "If
meat make my brother to offend, I
will eat no meat."
Don't dress in a very striking way,
either on or off the street. Don't
wear showy jewelry and cheap lace
flounces and guady artificial flowers
in profusion. Simplicity of dress is
particularly becoming to girlhood
and is an indication of refinement of
Don't dress for church or Sunday
school as you would dress for a
party. Many a poor girl has kept
from Sunday school because her
clothes, the best she could afford,
were in such marked contrast to
those worn by the rest of the class.
The Sunday school room is a poor
and glaringly inappropriate place for
the display of one's wardrobe.
Don't be affected in your manner
or conversation. Affectation is nev
er agreeable and it deceives no one.
Be natural. It is one of the chief
charms of girlhood.
Don't be led into thinking that a
pert, flippant manner adds to your
charms. It repels rather than at
tracts those whose friendship would
be of value to you.
Don't allow a coarse word or a
word of slang to escape your lips.
It is simply painful to hear a young
girl using such words and phrases,
It is a positive injury to her charac-
ter in the eyes of many, and it cer-
tauily indicates a lack of spirituality
in young Christians.
Don't be afraid of being too strict
in your views regarding the life of a
Christian. There is far greater dan-
ger of your being too lax in your
views. Have the courage of your
most profund convictions and you

Decrease In Immigration.
(New York Journal of Commerce.)
One of the most striking evidences
of industrial depression in this coun
try is the falling off in immigration
since last November, when the effect
was first noticeable. For the entire
year 1907 the number of immigrants
arriving in this country was unpre
cedented, reaching a total of 1,334,-
166. There was a gain in nearly eve
ry month until December over the
previous year, when the total was
1,215,349, which exceeded all previ
ous records. Even in October and
November the number was consider
ably in excess of the same months of
1906. The monthly average for the
year was over 111,000, but it Decem
ber the number fell to 66,574, com
pared with 85,466 in 1906.
Immigration in the first half of the
year has uniformly exceed to a con
siderable extent that in the last half.
Last year the arrivals in the first six
months numbered 743,952, or a
monthly average of 123,992. In 1906
the total for the first half year was
673,943, or a monthly average of
112,324. In January, this year, there
was a drop to 27,220, compared
with 54,417 last year, or almost ex
actly one-half. In February the
number fell to 23,381, against 55,541
last year, a reduction of nearly two
thirds. These two months are usual
ly the lightest of the year and last
year the number rose in March to
139,118 and reached still higher in
each of the next three months, the
maximum being 181,886 in May.
This year the increase was only to
32,517 in March, or less than one-
fourth the number arriving in the
same month last year, while in May
the total was only 3G.317, or less than
one-fifth of last year's record. The
total for six months was 192.C56,
against 743.952 last year, C73.943 in
1906 and 62S.17G in in3.
But the effect appears not alone in
this great diminution in the number
of immigrants. Though we have no
exact statistics of the departures of
aliens from the country during the
same period we know from the re-
ports of the steamship companies
that they have greatly exceeded the
arrivals. There has been an actual
decrease of the foseign population.
