"What would wo not give," says
one of our llrst settlors, "for the
uncloyed appetite of youth! Here
nm 1, tired of chicken nnd sick of
roast beef, but my young son comes
In from school In the afternoon and
asks for bread and butter. He goes
from the kitchen to the dining room,
eating one slice and carrying three
more, which he arranges in front of
him on the dining room table at
equal distances apart, one back of
the other, in columns by companies,
a whole batalllon of joys! As he
eats, he moves up the reserves nnd
Is .happy happy on bread and but
ter. Oh happy youth!"
Admiration alone will not run a
newspaper. Sooner or later such ad
inlrers will find that the object of
their affections has become welded
to other ways that they do not ad
mire in other words, a newspaper
is compelled in order to live, to seek
the friendship of those who are not
so platonic in their love, but unite
that practical esteem with senti
ment that binds mutual admiration
to other professions. There are too
many men who expect the editor to
slave In defense of their pet notions
and hobbles, advocate their views
against the strongest oppositions
and coolly withhold business sup
port by which alone a small news
paper can live.
A newspaper, if it has any brains,
conscience and muscle back of it,
must continually decide between
doing its duty and injuring Its
pocket. In any position but that of
an editor the public is able to sep
arate the individual home from the
collective citizen. But if the editor
does not please them, it's nis pocket
they ulm at. Thus It is that news
papers learn who their friends are.
The man who reads a newspaper
and admires it all the year around,
yet gives his business support to
some other concern, whose princi
ples he detests, is not a friend of
the former paper.
According to an Italian newspa
per, Giovanni Bovin, member of the
Italian parliament and a writer, was
recently approached by a French
banker who wished Uovia to allow
his name to be used in connection
with a matter of business to give
the scheme character. The service,
he insinuated, would be worth a
round million to Bovla, who declin
ed It, however, without a moment's
"There is no law," he wrote,
"against my complying with your
request, but it would be a crime
nevertheless. You who have lived In
Naples and others must know that
I live from hand to mouth with
my family by teaching and by writ
ing and that the accumulation of a
million would be an impossibility
from that source. But- my work
makes me independent, and the mil
lion would bo superllous. You say
that no one In Itomo would know,
that all would be kept secret, but
would not I know it? You bankers
may leave your consciences at tho
foot of the Alps and resume them
again on your return, but I carry
mine wherever I go."

make or unmake laws, but no citi- i
zen has tho right to refuse obedience
to them or to counsel others to do 1
so. The rich corporation or the I
wealthy individual that wilfully
breaks a law, because of his or Its
indifference to the small penalty
which may be inflicted, is a worse
enemy to the state and a greater
breeder of anarchy than the sneak

people only is worthy of liberty and
capable of guarding its treasures.
We have had many years of peace
and prosperity since the war of the
Rebellion ceased, but the days when
patriotism was a duty have not de
parted. We are approaching another
crisis in our national existence, a
crisis big with possibilities of good
or evil. Great corporations and
great combinations of capital, un
controlled Is a menace to our free
government, but held under proper
restraint, they can be made of much
benefit. Wise and just laws' must
be made, governing and controlling
them, making them the servants of
the people, and not allowing them
to become the masters.

The Monroe Record of May 2Cth
devotes the best part of two col
umns, in announcing that the Indus
trial Club of Stroudsburg had se
cured the locating of the William
Gibbs Cut Glass factory of Hawley
In that city. Mr. Gibbs is given a
site 80x350 feet on which they wll
erect a brick building 28x125 feet,
two stories In height. The people
of Stroudsburg agreed to pay 'for a
frame building, but Mr. Gibbs by
paying the difference, will have it
factory by publishing and clrculn
ting the statement that it is nn-
other small factory like Kelly &
steinman, and the Wayne, and that it
wlll soon be repiaced by a large
closed shop, and lots of buncombe
of that kind; but, nevertheless, the
fact stares the merchants and work
lngmen of Wayne in the face that
not only they have been injured
financially, but the reputation of
Hawley and Honesdale havo been
blackened In tho Industrial world as
a place where an individual living

How the Ancient City Is HcIiik
Special to Tho Citizen.
It 1b n parlous thing to lay hnnds
upon a city like Jeriisnlcm, not only
becnuso It Is so old, but because lt Is
so revered. Jews, Christians nnd
Mahometans alike hold lt to be tho
most sacred spot on earth. Yet to
day Jerusalem is in process of re
building. Solomon did this with
reverence, Herod carelessly. Of
course Zerubbabel rebuilt lt nnd
Saladdln nnd tho rest, but they had
nothing but blnnk spaces or ruined
walls to deal with. Tho builders of
to-day have tho ancient city, revered
nnd holy.
Jerusalem Is not n largo city. Its
wnlls are only two and one-hnlf
miles In circumference. Yet within
these narrow confines 00,000 persons
find their dwellings, packed togeth
er, herded Into the narrowest quart
ers; for the scanty space for dwell
ing places within tho ancient walls
is rendered still more sennty because
of the room taken for temples, mos
ques, monasteries, churches, pools
and barrocks. The grounds of the
Temple alone, occupied by the Mos
que of Omar and el Aksa, cover DG
acres. When theso large spaces are
subtracted, the roof left for dwell
ings is very limited Indeed.
For this reason there has sprung
up another city outside the walls, for
the most part to the north and west,
a more modern city of Jerusalem, an
ampler city, a cleaner city than the
ancient Jerusalem. Although spread
over twice the space occupied by the
city within the gates, this new city
has only half as mnny Inhabitants
as the ancient Jerusalem. For the
most part It Is a city of German
Jews or Russian members of the
Greek orthodox church, although
there are members of other faiths
and other nations In plenty to be
found there.
The great majority of the Inhabi
tants of Jerusalem are Jews. This
may surprise those who thought that
the Moslems were more numerous.
There are between fifty and sixty
thousand Jews in the city, while
there are only seven thousand Mos
lems. There are perhaps the same
number of Greek Christians, and
five thousand Roman Catholics,
while the remainder, Armenians,
Copts, Nestorians, Jacobites, Abys
slninns, dwindle down to a mere
It will be seen from this brief
summary that the city is most truly
a cosmopolitan one. The best of
governments might llnd difficulty ln
dealing with such a problem. But
the government, heretofore, has
been neither wise nor good. Its
policy has been to play one interest
against another. So In order to
serve their own interests the various
governments have interfered in, be
half of their constituencies. There
are some six postofflces'ln tho city
beside tho Turkish. And yet the
mall facilities are poor. But tho
administration of justice is even
more hampered by the interference
of western hations. Those who have
settled ln Palestine do not become
citizens and when an offence is com
mitted against the laws of Turkey
the criminal Is to be tried by his
own government. Imagine how this
would work when thero are thirteen
different governments represented
by consuls in Jerusalem whose Juris
diction must be respected by those
who are set to enforce the Turkish
law. No wonder the advocates of
the new Constitution are anxious to
have a freer hand.
In the meantime building opera
tions go on apace. An Infallible rule
obtains that wherever you see a red
tiled roof the building Is modem.
According to this rule it is surpris
ing to note how large a part of the
city within tho wnlls is modern.
New buildings on old sites abound.
Many are for tho entertainment of
strangers who come to Jerusalem as
pilgrims for the various festivals of
the church year. The bulk of theso
nro Russian. Mnny aro very poor.
If such refuges were not provided
thoy would often suffer keenly. Both
Jews and Gentiles come to Jorusalem
to die that they may lay their bones
In sacred soil. In genernl It may bo
said that tho Russians aro tho tran
sients while tho Germans, Jews or
Gentiles, come to trado and so re
main. The Russian Greek church and the
German Roman Catholic church have
recently completed a magnificent
building on separato points of the
Mount of Olives. The tower of tho
German building Is not yet com
pleted. These will bo tho future
lnndinnrks of tho city. From tho
north and even from beyond the
Dead Sea they nro tho first objects
to strlko tho eyo. So tho old has
just now given plnco to tho now
Many other buildings outsldo tho
walls nro for tho housing of various
colonies, mostly Jewish. Tho mom
bers of theso communities have in
somo Instances been driven from tho
land of their adoption by persecu
tion. They subsist partly on tho
chnrlty of their brethren nnd partly
by trado or tho manufacturo of
fancy nrtlcles.
Of a different sort nro ti.o Jews
of the Sophardln, tho descendants of
thoso who were driven out of Spain
and Poland during tho days of tho
Inquisition. Theso llvo In tho Jew
ish quarter of tho city whoro thoy
havo managed to eko out a miser
nblo oxlstonco for centuries. Their
quartor Is tho most filthy within tho
walls, and that is saying a great
deal. Bad food and unwholesome
surroundings havo bleached their
skins to a sickly yellow and emaciat
ed their bodies to a degree that Is
very painful. Thoy have adopted a
sort of national dress, tho moat dis
tinctive fenturo of which Is a fur
rlintncd cap with a flat top beneath
which they allow long curled locks
of their hnlr, ono In front of each
oar, to fall almost to tho neck. Their
frnll bodies aro often clothed In
costly silk gabardines nnd many are
said to be wealthy.
Near to the Mosque of Omar, which
Is built on the foundations of the
nnclent temple 'of Solomon, tho Jews
long ago, by the payment of n heavy
bribe to the Turks, obtained the
right to assemble for worship by
tho side of the stones of tho wnh of
tho nnclent snnctuary. This Is called
the Jews' Walling Plnco. Here on 1
tho evening of Friday, when tho )
Jewish Sabbath begins nnd nlso on
Saturday, great crowds assemble for
religious services, reading lamenta
tions from tho Psnlms and uttering
cries of grief, the hearers respond
ing after each lament, "Hero sit we
now, lonely, nnd weep." I must say
that there were more eyes for the
visitors than for the prayer-books
whllo wo were there, but perhaps
tho older .lows had not arrived so
early. Tho crevices between the
ancient bevelled stones nro driven
full of nails to typify that the de
votion of the person who drove them
Is unchnnglng.
The Jews do not enter the Mosque
of Omar, lest thoy should tread un
der foot some remnant of that which
was once a part of the Holy of
Holies. It is said that when Baron
Rothschild, who has done so much
for the Jews of Jerusalem, visited
the city, wishing to see the ancient
leniple site, ho was carried in a
chair all through the Mosque and its I
grounds. Perhaps tho time will come
when even Jerusalem win even
change Its ways.
In contrast with the ancient de
votion to the past and Its traditions,
the traveller of to-day may visit the
Schneller, the orphan houses where
400 children are cared for, or the
Jewish Hilfsvereln schools providing
education from the kindergarten to
the normal course for 1,000 schol
ars, or the enterprises of the Zion
ists, Bezalel, presided over by Dr.
Schatz, where rug-making, brass and
silver working, lithography and
other Industries are taught to boys
and girls, while at the same time
the school is made to pay Its own
Enough has been said to show
that there is a new Jerusalem in
course of construction on earth.
But it does not consist of tile-roofed
buildings nor cut-stone walls. It is
growing up in the minds anu hearts
of men of all creeds, worshippers ln
mosque or church or by temple
walls, and It Is the children who are'
leading the way.
