International Bible Lesson for Aug.
21, '10 (Matt. 20: 17-34).
That ofllco seeking Is not n modern
characteristic is seen in the fact,
that even among the apostles of Jesus
Christ thero was an unseemly squab
ble at one time over the question of
eligibility for the highest positions.
Deluded with the common notion that
tho Messiah was about to establish
an earthly kingdom they disputed with
ench other as to who should bo great
est In the kingdom. No doubt each
one presented his claims with earn
estness and conviction for the record
Bays that they reasoned and disputed
over the subject along tho way.
But the Master of the new kingdom
gave thorn n rebuko that they nover
forgot and that changed their viows
completely as to what true greatness
Is. He took a llttlo child, and sot
him In tho midst, and said In effect:
This Is a sample of my kingdom, and
he who comes tho nearest to being
like this little child, In love. In trust
fulness. In humility, In teachableness,
In faith, in purity, In contentment, in
obedience, and In other chlldllko
characteristics will be the greatest In
the kingdom of heaven. That was an
. important lesson for all men, In all
lands and In all ages.
Popular Ideas Upset.
But how that revolutionizes popu
lar Ideas. Our idea of greatness is
that men are born great and come to
their place by divine right. Their
blood is different from other blood,
they belong to a superior grade. Hence
it is our duty to allow them to occupy
the seats of the mighty. And then
there are others who Imagine that
possession of money makes them
great. Thero Is nothing more sick
ening than to see those who have sud
denly acquired wealth aping tho ways
of the nobility and lording It over the
common herd with arrogant demeanor.
A family name docs not always stand
for greatness. Royal blood Is often
weak and watery, not to say poison
ous. True greatness never swaggers.
It does not tread upon the mudsills
with Iron shod shoes. It does not
draw aside Its garments with a "hol
ler than thou" air. It does not recline
upon a throne Indifferent to the sor
rows of Its fellow men.
True greatness Is humble, unas
suming, free from self-conceit and
self-consciousness. When a man Is
great and knows It, that moment he
becomes contemptible. The greatest
men that have ever lived have been
characterized by childlike qualities.
No greater man ever lived than Moses,
yet he is known as the meekest man.
The mightiest preacher of the nges
was Paul yet he was as approachable
nnd tender-hearted as a child. Jesus
Christ Himself stands at tho head of
all the Wise Men of the ages, yet he
was so free from that aloofness, popu
larly supposed to be a part of great
ness, that whenever he paused by tho
wayside the children swarmed about
Him and climbed Into His lap with
the utmost familiarity. Children are
fine Judges of character. They know
Instinctively whom to trust
Office No Evidence of Greatness.
Evidently we shall have to revise
our ideas of getting up in the world.
Wo havo thought that It was by look
ing out for Number One. Wo havo
supposed that It was by making every
body and everything come our way,
and assist In boosting us. Wo have
imagined that greatness was only an
other word for thrones, scepters, es
tates, money, office, castles, gold laco,
diplomas, stars and garters. Oh, no I
There are little men In office and big
men out; small men wearing epaulets
and large men who never wore a uni
form more brilliant than a black
smith's apron; mean men greeted
with tho huzzas of thronging thous
sands and noble men who never had
a hand clap, pusillanimous men, who
are clothed In purple and fine linen
and fore sumptuously every day, and
obscure men the latchet of whoso
shoes many so-called noblemen are
not worthy to stoop down and untie.
Not that greatness may not bo found
In high places and In places of loftiest
dignity, but there is nothing in the
office itself to confer greatness on
any man. If he Is great he is so be
cause of what ho Is and not because
what he has. Wa E. Gladstono was
just as great before he became Prime
Minister of England as he was after
ward, and Cardinal Woolsey was a
disgrace to his office long before he
put off the robes of power.
Greatness la a Quality of soul, and
true greatness manifests Itself In ft
life of sacrifice for other's. Call the
roll of tho world's neroea and hero
ines and It will bo found that they are
the philanthropists, the discoverers,
the inventors, the martyrs, tho pio
neers of the world's progress and im
provement. Tbey have not counted
their Uvea dear unto themselves that
they might bear the world's burdens,
and share the world's sorrows.
Alexander Pope, In his Essay on
Man says:
Honor and shame from no condition
Act wel your part, there all the hon
or Ilea,
Who noble ends by noble means ob
tains, Or, falling, smiles in exile or In
Like good Aurellus, let him reign, or
With Socrates, that taw U great Indeed.

"Out in Ohio the Republicans are in
clined to bo progressive," said Judge
Brown. "There is not so much of tho
stand pat Idea there as some are apt
to think. Its location, between tho east
and the middle west, makes it some
what conservative, but while the plat
form adopted by the recent conven
tion supports the tariff nnd President
Taft, there are nt the same time some
progressive planks. You have got to
go to Ohio to see how that sort of
thing is managed. Out there we are
never extremists, but wo favor fair
treatment for everybody, nnd we be
lieve that Innovations should come in
gradually, by a course of evolution, ns

From there they were taken to Gua

It Is asserted that they surreiMlcred

Governor Harmon, Finding City Au
thorities Powerless to Preserve Or
der, Orders National Guard to
Return Business Paralyzed.
Columbus, O., Aug. 10. Fresh riot
ing among tho striking street railway
employees caused Governor Harmon
to Issue a call for 1,000 members of
the militia to come back here to quell
the disturbance.
It is reported thnt at least 8,000 mili
tiamen will be stationed hero by to
night nnd thnt they will be kept on
duty until Christmas, If necessary, as
the governor Is determined thnt tho
lawlessness must end.
The governor was forced to order out
the mllltln because of rioting on the
east side. Mayor Marshall refused to
make an appeal to the governor to cnll
out the troops. The Ohio Electric Rail
way company Is operating its enre ir
regularly, sending clerks nnfl stenog
raphers to do duty na motormcn nnd
conductors on tho cars. The manage
ment of the railway company refused
to listen to the appeal of Marshall and
keep the cars In the barns nfter dnrk.
Yesterday afternoon 2,000 men collect
ed lu Long street and threatened the
crews on the cars. There was n hur
ried call for the police, but the blue-
coat force has become almost demoral
ized by the rioting, shooting nnd dis
order. It seems to have lost Its grip
on the situation.
There was a controversy between
Governor Harmon and Mayor Marshall
on the advisability of calling out tho
troops. In a statement Governor Har
mon says:
"I have ordered a part of the na
tional guard to report for duty In Co
lumbus forthwith. I have done this of
my own motion under my authority
as governor.
"The police force of tho city, which
Is entirely too small at best, has been
reduced nnd demoralized by the open
mutiny of many of the members. It
has shown itself incapable, without
help, of maintaining order. A continu
ation of this condition would disgrace
the state nnd Inflict grievous injury
on its city.
"I am unwilling to let lawless vio
lence run unchecked for lack of force
to cut it down, while the police force
of the city Is being recruited and re
organized and the sheriff is summon
ing tho men of the country to uphold
the public authority. It does not mend
matters to say the local authorities
shonld have taken these steps sooner,
although this is true. Let them bo
taken now without delay."
With Mayor Marshall admitting that
the police force nnd the few deputies
sworn In nre unable to cope with the
mobs in the street car strike here, nnd
with the situation complicated by seri
ous daylight rioting, assaults, bomb
throwing, the hurling of stones and
promiscuous shooting, insistent de
mauds were made upon Governor Har
mon to ngnln cnll out tho national
guard. Business In the city Is para
lyzed, one merchant who pays 20 n
day rent admitting that he took In Sat
urday but S3. Another did not sell
enough to pay his clerks' hire.
Five Men Rescued of Nine Buried In
Mass of Cement and Clay.
Ogdensburg, N. Y Aug. 10. Nlue
men were engulfed under 100 tons of
cement and clay at the power dam
being constructed nt Mnsscun, N. Y.
Five were rescued. Two were dead
when taken out, and two others are
still hurled In the ruins. Three of the
injured men were taken ncross the St.
Lawrence river to Cornwall, and put

One of the dead men whose body
wns recovered had $1,800 In money
sowed in his underclothing. The men
were Italians.
A section of the dam forty feet In
length, thirty feet In height and filled
with clay gave way burying tho work
men under It. The theory of quick
sand is advanced by some and a weak
foundation by others.

Nebraska Primaries Result
In Peculiar Situation.

Candidates While Adopting Anti

Omaha, Neb., Aug. 17. Returns from
the Nebraska state primaries lndlcnte

licans and n "wet" victory in both
parties so far ns candidates ore con
cerned, but n dry victory on platform.

At the Democratic primaries Hitch
cock for senntor probably has two to

Bryan's paper and Bryan's right hand
man. Governor Schellenberger, up for
renomlnatlon, Is running nhend of
Mayor Dahlman of Omaha, but the
latter made surprising gains In many
districts nnd may overtake tho leader
when the returns nre all In.
The race between Schallenbcrger nnd
Dahlman was tho hottest of tho elec
tion. Shallcnberger stands ngalnst
a county option bill, but will sign a
county option bill If the legislature
pas one. Dahlman Is an out nnd
out wet candidate and refuses to sign
nny prohibition bills which may come
before him.
Believe Johnson Winner.
San Francisco, Aug. 17. Judging
from returns so far received Hiram
Johnson, insurgent Republican, has
been nomlnnted by direct primary for
governor of California.
From central and southern Califor
nia returns show that Johnson is get
ting a very heavy vote, practically as
much as Curry and Anderson com
bined. If the returns continue the
opinion is thnt Johnson will win. HI?
supporters didn't dream he would poll
so heavy n vote in Frisco.
Reports from Los Angeles show that
Johnson is polling ns heavy n vote as
all others combined. Tho returns
from Los Angeles practically show
tljat Johnson has carried the state by
a very heavy plurality. Good Judges
here nre preparing to concede John
son's victory.
Secretary of Interior Declared He
Would Resign if President Asked.
Washington, Aug. 17. Secretin?
Balllnger of the Interior department
has sent word to Beverly that he wli:
resign any time he Is asked to do sc
by the president, but not until then.
This Is tho burden of n report that Is
current here. According to this storj
the secretary made plain this attitude
to Senator Crane in Minneapolis a fort
night ago nnd the senator has conv
munlcntcd it to the president.
This report adds color to the grow
ing Impression that the effort to get
rid of Balllnger, Cannon and Aldrlch
without soiling the hands of the presi
dent has come to grief. Secretary
Balllnger, it Is snld, flatly refused tc
be put out of the way by nnybody but
tho president himself.
