GREEKS LOATHE THE TURKS
An Incident That Shows How Deep
Seated Is the Hatred
The ertent to which tfhe Greeiks'
hatred of the Turks goes is illustrated
in " A Child of the Orient," 'by I)eme
tra Vaka." The autihor's Aunt Kalliroe
was an old Greek woman, whose feel
ings were the most anti-Turk. She had
bought a large Greek' homestead, for
Which she had no use and which dhe
could not at all afford, solely to keep it
from falling into the possession of a
Turk. The author writes:
"The next tpme we visited Aunt Kal
liroe she was installed in the Spathary
homestead. Just within the front door
stood a small table, covered with a
white linen tablecloth, such as an ortho
dox Greek woman spun 'herself for the
purpose of putting on the table where
the ikons were laid—a tablecloth al
ways washed by the mistress herself in
a baain kept apart from the other
dishes. On the table lay a Greek ikon,
a brass candlestick holding three can
dles, all burning, and a brass incense
burner, from which a column of blue
smoke was rising, filling t'he house wit'h
the odor of incense.
" 'Why. it isn't Easter, and it isn't
Christmas!' I cried. 'lt isn't even a
great saint's day. Why are you 'burn
ing the candles and the incense, great
" 'They have been burning since-I
moved into this house, and frhev shall
burn for thrice fortv davs, to cleanse it
| from Turkish pollution.
'But since Ba'kv Pasha never
bought it and never lived i„ it'—
• that is enough to pollute a Christian
I home. '

It la interesting to hear men talli of

It was difficult to conceive they were
ever bo.va; that they ran barefoot,
spun tops, played marbles, ran, Jump

prankish. Jocular, fun loving. Were
they always austere, dignified, wise?
Paul draws back the curtain, and we

they are six. But It would be a worse
calamity to have a grown man talk of

When old age brings enfeeblement. of

ocean of difference, however, between
being childish and childlike.
Childish In Understanding.
Japanese have the art of dwarfing
trees and shrubbery; Chinese women
dwarfed their children's feet; European
women hare dwarfed their waists.
I've seen men dwarfing their souls, but
it is also pitiful to see men dwarfing
their mentality. 1 had a church mem
ber whose little child uever grew men
tally or physically. Just lay there a
mass of human clay. Then God the
merciful took it. Nearly every day i
pass a home for backward boys. I
stop to chat for a moment, but I al
ways come away with a heavy heart.
I meet lots of backward grown folks.
I hear their prejudice against men
who are of a different race, nationality
or religion. Men there are who pride
themselves on great national questions
—financial, philosophical, literary- but
speak to them of (Jod and great spii
itual and they afe veritable
ignoramuses. The fresh gleam of God's
world is in the sky, but their faces are
turned earthward. Women with the
glorious possibility of womanhood,
their understanding of diaphanous
dress, animal dances and skilful art of
idling Is great, but in church, mother
hood and domestic life-—three <sod
sends to women—they are content with
kindergarten understanding. The glori
ous oak that was in the acorn never
got beyond a sapling.
. I talked with a iniin recently who
thought it was a sign of weakness to
become a Christian, and his reason*
were so puerile. I tried to show hiui
that his refusal was a sign of weak
ne.ss rather than strength. All through
his talk it was. "1 think," "1 think."
aud he was putting his ignorance
against the thought of the centuries.
The mightiest (ask a man ever tackled

thought it was weakness—meanwhile
lie hasn't the grit to quit a great vice.
Religion means restraint—it is a poor
religion that doesn't require self denial.
The spoiled child says, "Mamma must
I gather up my toys?" The man who
thinks right about the religion of God
does not say. "Must I do this or that."
or "quit this or that?" but "I must be
about my father's business." We are
to think great thoughts that will gird
the world with steel, tunnel
nnd rivers, master the air, and flash
»ur messages through space. Back of
our puny strength is God's reservoir
of power, his Niagaras, which we may
harness. We are sous of God and as
men thinkers we are to solve all human
questions, to work out our salvation,
mental, moral, physical, economic nnd
spiritual. We ace to bridge distance
between heaven and earth. God Is our
father—he Intends, not to damn us, but
to save us and l»e]p lis. for this cause
Christ came inio the world—to save
us. and that we should have life, and
life more abundantly.
