his realm, or to be adherent to tho
king's enemies in his realm, giving;
them aid and comfort In the realm or
elsewhere. The Constitution defines
treason In the United States as ,'Ievy1
ing war against them or In adhering to
their enemies, giving them aid and
comfort." Statesmen have held that
such laws are uecesary. They used to
believe that the punishment of traitors
should Include torture. Even when
they did not advocate boiling in oil, or
some other horrible penalty, they In
sisted that the punishment should be
made as disgraceful as possible. But
the enforcement of the death penalty
has not leeu couimou in recent years.
The last traitors hauged in England
were the CnXo street conspirators, w.u
plotted the assassination of the mem
bers of the cabinet in 1x20. Although
the youth who tired at Queen Victoria
In 1S42 was sentenced to death, he was
only Imprisoned and later rel.-ased. As
there is no death penalty in Italy. the
anarchist who killed King Humbert
was imprisoned. These facts are inter
esting because of their bearing on the
recent conviction for treason of Arthur
Alfred Lynch, a British subject, who
fought analnst his country In South
Africa, who was elected to parliament
from Gulway while still in the enemy's
service. It Is generally believed that if
he bad not returned to England to take
his seat in the House of Commons bis
conduct would have been overlooked.
Although the law provides the death
penalty and sentence of death was
passed niton him, that sentence has
been commuted to penal servitude for
life. A centry ago he would have been
hanged without question. The temper
of the times has changed, and govern
ments which rest upon the popular wllj
seldom find It necessary to enforce the'
laws made when loyalty and 1 reason

The student of biology hears much
of "adaptation to the environment."
The phrase is useful not only In h
scribing the process by which the
lower spi cies develops into the liighi ri
but in li.i lactt-rizing men and women
in the process of getting used to mod
ern conditions. Two generations ago
a woman's social duties were confined
rather strictly to her own town. Her
sympathies were called upon by the
poor and suffering of her own church,
Their sole extension was to the un
known txTson, for whom she packed
a missionary box of books or barrel of
clothing, and into those packets she
poured a wealth of imagination in the
effort to picture circumstances which
she was never likely to see. As her
children grew up and married, she
made visits to their homes, where the
daily routine was but a slight modifi
cation of that to which they had been
Ired. In a half century a miracle of
change has been wrought. The morn
ing paper brings to the breakfast table
a famine in India, Armenian atrocities,
a patriotic sjieech in Manila, or a fresh
revolutionary outbreak in South Amer
ica. The telephone, with Its message
from a distant friend, crowds upon
the newspaiKT. Even the remote ranch
attaches its instruments to the barbed
wire fence, and brings its sixty-miles-away
neighbors within speaking dis
tance. All these and other things
cause the demands of modern philan
thropy to multiply daily, particularly
in cities where the conditions of life
to many of the Inhabitants become
more and more cruel. The activities
of the church reach from the service
of the altar to the care 'for the fouu
dling and the criminal. The home It
self is more exacting fhau ever, for
the newly discovered laws of sanita
tion demand that the housemother
shall know every erucfe and crevice
of her bouse, lest she be resjiousible
for some injury to her children. Final-,
ly, the stay-at-home has given place
to "the globe-trotter." So life rushes
on. Thus far the greater number of
women have kept the pace set for
them with a courage and persistence
wonderful to see. How long they can
do so is another question. Nature often
helps silently In the process of adapta
tion, but In this case nature seems
powerless to Interfere. Women mnst
do for themselves by selection and by
rare whatever is to be done. Evi
dently they may all Join In Mr. Mere

It Is well known that the Friend,
have always been devoted to the prin
ciples of peace. As they had a corii

of Nantucket, there was no military
organization on that island for several
generations. How the matter was
managed Is told by the author of "Sep
temler Days on Nantucket."
Whenever military companies eanW

A Few Hemtrki Conccmiag our Pat

Many Americans In visiting England
have been surprised and flattered when
a British military band has played the
air of "America" and the English
crowd bas risen to Its feet and doffed
its bats. Similarly, English visitors
to this country have got up and bowed
is to a compliment when an American
sand has blared the same tone. It has
taken time It each case to convince
the hearer that "God Save the King"
and "America" have the same air. ut
course, the Briton has become Indig
nant over the theft of a national air,
forgetting that the colonies, with (heir
allegiance to a British king, had a
claim to the melody and on their re
Volt could fairly set their own new
words to It.
The charge of theft and of musical
poverty In America has Inspired a
patriotic association In little Ithode
Island to offer a gold medal to any
body who shall compose a new and
"a better" air to Dr. Smith's inspir
ing words. Rhode Island denies that
Great Britain Is musical, and affirms
that our own country (whose coon
songs as played by Sousa's band have
captured King and Queen, and become
the burden of every whistling news
boy, coster and clubman In London)
has a degree of musical talent and cul
ture which even Genua ny cannot rival,
Therefore It Is Impatient under (he
charge of stealing the most venerated
of British melodies. ,
It Is vain, however, to hope, for , a
popular acceptance of a new tune for
"America." The present air has been

cant occasions to the words of our
heart-filling hymn to be surrendered to
the British. When we were forced

quarter has endeared to us these tunes,
and we shall keep them. When Gen

How and Why It I arics Dead Ilirdi
and Insect.
The gravedigger lieetle was the sub
ject of an interesting experiment that
a young Philadelphia n, a student of
the biological department of the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania, recently con
ducted, says the Philadelphia Record.
He secured four healthy gravedigger
licet leg and put them in a wooden box
tilled with earth, along with a very
small dead sparrow. The beetles 11.1
sooner perceived the bird than they
began to dig alongside of it. For four
hours they dug, and at the end of that
time they had a hole made that was
six or seven Inches deep and three
inches square.
Now they went around to the other
side of the sparrow and gave, all to
gether, a giiod, .strong push. The bird
dropped into the grave nicely and the
beetles covered it over with loose soil.
The young experimenter kept the
beetles for a mouth. Muring the month
they buried live birds, three grasshop
pers, two' butterflies and a young
mouse. Their Ikix came to resemble a
"Why are these lieetles gravedig
gcrs?. What Is their motive?"
To tlTTs question, which was put to
him by many visitors, the student
would reply:
Gravodigging Is their way of prop
agatlug their species. They get hold
of some little dead thing, dig a hole
beside it, lay their eggs In Its flesh and
bury It. The eggs, after a time, hatch
Into larvae. These larvae must de
velop under ground, and during their
development they must eat. Well,
thanks to their thoughtful parents,
they are born in the midst of food -they
have on all sides of them the car
rion lu which, as eggs, they were laid
and buried-atid thus they feed boun
tifully, and grow big ami strong, so
that on their emergence from the soil
they are beetles to lie proud of. And
as soon ns they emerge they become
grave-diggers lu their turn.
American I'roMM-il yle.
A number of American journalists
have Indofsed the prediction of Prof.
P.iandi'r Matthews that American
writers are destined henceforward to
set the standards of prose style for
the English speaking world, sajg the
London Iaily Graphic. The reason
given that there are so many t them
certainly will not bear examination.
It might, as plausibly be argued that
the standard of purity for wj.er
should be set by the water of Lake
Superior because there Is such a lot of
it. If American prose ever liecomes a
model for writers of prose, it must
lie because the best prose is written
In America and that Is not a state of
things to which the process of literary
evolution seems at present to be tend
ing. For. curiously enough, American
prose has got worse pit her than bet
ter since the days of Emerson and
Hawthorne. Its present note Is fluen
cy rather than distinction, and the
voluminous sentences of such stylists
as W. I. Howeils and Henry James
seem the work of students laboriously
experimenting with the language, and
not of masters of their material In
stinctively molding It to its proper

who was strongly of the opinion that

he proceeded to give the toad a iiost
vicious bite. Instantly the toad hopped
back on the lawn, found a bit of plan

he hop'icd and bit the same obstruc
