THE CmZKA, WEDNESDAY, OCT. 20, 1010.
Educator on Economics.
Allontown, l'n., Oct. 20. An
audienco thnt comfortably filled
Muhlenberg chapol Inst evening
heard Homer U. Eolks, of New
York city, prominent in distribu
tion of charities, speak on tho sub
ject "Tlio Fnlluro of Government In
The lecture was possessed of a
pletslng personality and hold the at
tention of tho audience throughout
the entire address. Mr. Kollts stnt
ed that lecturing was but a "by
duct" of his life, but few lectures nt
Muhlenburg hnve boon more Inter
esting and more laden with thought.
By failure the speaker mndo clear I
ho meant comparative failure, just
as a man la a, bankrupt even if he
can pay 95 per cent, of his debts.
Any improvement less than a rea
sonable Increase Is a failure and,
according to that standard, govern
ment in the U. S. Is a failure. Wo
are tho most favored nation in tho
world and our government Is the
most responsive to public opinion
but wo are as well oft as we are In
spite of our government and not be
cause of it. Tho root of tho trouble
Is tho uncertainty of relations be
tween the state and tho national
governments. The speaker then
gave Buch examples of the failure of
our form of government as his ex
perience as a worker In charity had
"Vital statistics aro recognized
everywhere as tho diagnosis of the
body politic, tho record of births,
deaths and cause of deaths Is an in
dex of the administration of govern
ment nnd yet the United Stntes can
not obtain them so well as can
Spain. Italy or Russia. Half of the
territory of the United States has
no provision for records of vital
statistics; In some states only some
of the cities hnve records. No. II.
The forty-five states differ In laws,
they differ even in the administra
tion of the same laws. The nation
cannot collect the reports; the
states will not, so we guess at our
vital statistics. One man's guess
may not bo so good as another's but
he thinks it Is.
In many states tho child labor
laws aro sermons and sermons are
not so effective as they used to be.
Tho laws In different states con
flict and are not enforced. Six
years ago a private self-appointed
committee in New York city under
took to establish uniform Child La
bor Laws throughout the United
States. Here was a private com
mittee seeking to remedy a need
in tho national government. The
people are willing enough to respond
to any humanitarian undertaking
but they have not the means to
make it effective.
"From past history one would
judge the Insurance committees
were delegated to protect Insurance
companies instead of to regulate and
control their actions. There is no
relief for the poor man's insurance.
"There is a term called employ
er's liabilities but the burden of
preventing accidents falls upon
charity. The widow of an accident
faces tho choice between 30 cents
and a law suit; the employer pays
out money for legal "talent," If we
choose to call It such. In other
countries the burden of accident
falls upon the industry and thus
tho widow receives money when she
needs it, not a small pittance after
a long law suit. We possess no
system as this under our laws.
"Likewise we have no system for
dealing with the social evil. t is
sapping away our life, filling' the
lnsano asylums and Is responsible
for the birth of blind children and
yet we have absolutely no system,
in dealing with it. Surely any pol
icy would be better than none.
"The divorce laws aro no better;
forty-five different administrations.
In all these difficulties wo might
hope if there was the slightest way
out of the trouble but wo aro lost
without a compass. Education
whero wo might expect uniformity
presents no better enlightenment.
"After speaking so far on per
sonal experience Mr. Folks proceed
ed to observation, and experience
of others. Abuses In freight rates
aro different now but none tho less
serious. We make tho gun and pre
pare to flro but lo! tho game has
"Greater Interdependence means
greater need for social conformity.
Our constitution places obstacles to
proposed changes. Wo can do as
they did In England when change In
times made chango In government
necessary. make tho chnnges but
do not change the recognized forms.
And we have done so, wo changed
tho election by electoral college
without changing tho constitution
so we also changed tho election of
senators without changing tho un
changeable constitution." With
change in conditions wo may assume
that tho constitution was meant to
bo changed also. Tho constitution
and nrticles of confederation were
made In tho same generation. The
latter was found to be Inadequate
to the needs; what guarantee should
there bo that tho former Is eternal.'
"Conditions may bo remedied by
forming extra-statuary bodies or
some existing body with extra
statuary powers to do things which
tho states won't do and which tho
country ought to do.
Dr. KIuiio on Clirlfctlun Science.
Addressing an audienco of nearly
1,000 persons. Dr. Francis J. Fluno,
of Oakland. Cal.. delivered a lecture
on Christian Sclenco under tho aus
pices of tho local church of that de
nomination, a few days ago. He was
Introduced by Attorney A. E. Brandt,
who stnted that the purpose of the
lecture was to present the fundamen
tals of Christian Science by way of
correction of mistaken ideas concern
lug tho same.
Dr. Fluno hold tho close attention
of his audienco during his address of
an hour and a quarter. Among oth
er things he said:
"Christian Sclenco is tho science of
being; It Is tho law of llfo, truth
and lovo understood and domoustrat
ed. The eternal laws of llfo, truth
and lovo that aro found having their
foundation in the pno God can no
more fall than their foundation, prln
ciple, the eternal God, can fail. The
science of being 1b as Independent
as the science of mathematics. Like
the spirit of love, It seeks no reward
and foars no punishment. It dreads
no downfall and asks no assistance.
As tho etornal fact of being, it can
stand alone; being true ntid its prin
ciple truth, It asks no support from
nnyono or anything. It Is the Bamo
whether thousands rally to Its stand
ard or seek to trail its bnnner In tho
"And because Christian Sclonce is
tho ntornal fact of being, It does no,
therefore teach e'.ernnl banishment
from God, or good, but on tho con
trary it tenches that all must come lo
truth at Inst,
"Chrlstlnn Sclenco Is tho scentlflo
knowledge of tho law of life reduced
to a systom and found practical, not
enly In the physical hcaltui,' or sick
ness and sin nnd nil evil, but in the
(kstrucllon of them from off tho face
of tho earth, that His kingdom may
come, nnd his will be done on earth
as It Is In heaven. Ana Christian
Scientists are those who, to tho extent
that they understand this great truth,
arc practicing It upon themselves and
others who ask of them the same
God's blessing. And hundreds are
being healed every day of sickness as
well ns of sin, and these In their
turn aro learning tho great law of be
ing, and how to apply It In their own
enso nnd upon those who In their
turn shall como to them.
"Christian Science tenches that sin,
sickness, pain and death, evil, error
nnd discord of all kinds do not be
long to God nor His creation, nnd are
no more a part of the great fact of
being than tho errors nnd misunder
standings of mathematics are a part
of the sclenco of numbers; and man
and the universe In the true, spirit
ual sense are found to be as sinless
and perfect now and as unchangeable
as the everlasting Father the per
fect, sinless and unchangeable God
Kill the Mosqultos!
One venomous creature thero Is In
this country which may justly be
termed a 'public peril, in the wild
est sense. Proportionately to pop
ulation, more victims fall to It yearly
In tho United States than to the
dreaded cobra in India. Some twelve
thousand Americans aro killed every
year by Its bite. Threo hundred
thousand more are made seriously 111
from the after effects. Unfortunate
ly, tho virus works so slowly that
alarm Is stilled. The victims do not
sicken at once. The bite is forgot
ten; but ten days or two weeks after,
the subject falls into a fever. His
blood Is poisoned within him. Even
tually, in extreme cases, ho becomes
delirious, succumbs to a stupor, and
Yet, because there is nothing hor

tolerates it with a grin and permits
it to bre,ed in city and county alike

of the nation. Compared with It, as
a real menace, all combined brood of
snakes, scorpions centipedes, taran
tulas, and other pet bugaboos of our
childish romanticism are utterly neg

shadow to substance. It Is perhaps

Tho Melancholy Day of tho School
Boy. I smell the smoke of burning leaves,
Tho air Is strangely cool.
A vague depression sickens me.
I think it must be school.
I smell tho musty slate rag, too.
It makes mo ache with woe.
For something seems to say to me
To school I soon must go.
I smell the newly varnished desk,
I hear 'tho whispered buzz.
I dread tho bell that sounds tho knell
Of happy days that was.
I hate to go for mother's sake
I'm sure that she will cry;
And yet she doesn't seem to fret
One-half as much as I.
But that's tho way with mothers;
They're braver far than us.
They bear their sorrows silently
And seldem make a fuss.
My mother seems to stand it well.
But wait! You bet she'll see
Her spank and kiss sho soon will
Also my company.
And yet I can't help wondering
How she can hide her Krlef.
Sho smiles and laughs exactly like
Sho felt a great roller.
It hurts my feelings very much
To sco her act so glad;
I wIbIi thut she would cry a bit
To show that sho Is sad.
And O alas! Alas onco more,
No sorrow seems to reach her.
Sho hands me over to somo un

Trlsd It on Miss Schnoldsr.
Miss Josef a Schneider, a Turkish
subject, resident in Constantinople,
hns brought u suit for dnmages ngainst
tho stnto which throws n vivid light on
conditions In Turkey under Abdul Hn
mid II. According to tho Paris Eclair
one of Abdul's daughters fell seriously
ill In the days when ho was still padl-
shah and tho court physicians recom
mended an operation for appendicitis.
Abdul refused to give his consent un
til tho operation had been performed
on somo one also, to provo that it was
not dungerous to llfo. Miss Schneider,
who had recently spent some tlmo In n
Constantinople hospital, was hnndy, so
she was forcibly taken from her house
nnd deprived of her appendix. Abdul
Hnmld was convinced, his daughter
wus cured, and now Miss Schncldor's
suit la part of his successor's troubles.
Nanisn and "Thlrttan."
The "thirteen" superstition la not
universal. Dr. Nnnnen can afford to
laugh nt It. The crew of the Fram
on Its memorable north polo expedition
consisted of thirteen men, who, uftcr
an abaence of three years, all returned
to their homes in perfect health, de
spite the trials they hud gone through.
Then on Dec. 13, 1S03, the doctor rec
ords the birth of a litter of pups.
"Thero were thirteen u curious coin

Wright'. Little Pun.
Wilbur Wright was talking to a re
porter about the London Mall's $50,000
aerial race from London to Manches
ter. "It was shocking, though," said the
reportor, "that Orahame-Whlto, an
Anglo-Saxon flying man, let himself
be bentcn by a Frenchman."
Mr. Wright smiled.
"Shocking?" ho said. "It was moro

In a railway carriage chat tho other
day a London medical man told a
good story which had como within
his own experience. A mother wns
frequently bringing her child to him
for treatment, but tho doctor could
discover nothing amiss except Its need
of a good wash. Sho was certain tho
Infant was suffering from some terri
ble complaint nnd begged tho doctor
to do his best. Ho proscribed a dally
wash with tho water In which pota
toes had been peeled. Never sus
pecting that' this was merely a ruse
to got the child washed, tho mother
followed tho Instructions to tho lct
tor. Rosy cheeks appeared, and a
clean, healthy looking child gladdened
the mother's henrt. Sho sounded the
doctor's praises everywhere and ad
vised other mothers to tost the ofll
cacy of potato water. It never oc
curred to her that precisely tho same
result would have followed tho dally
application of soap and water.
