because all the metal parts are made of Nickel steel, which
Is twice as strong as ordinary steel. It is simple to load and

IS HARD TO FIND
Diplomats and Observers Unable
to Understand the Attitude
RECENTLY STRONG FOR PEACE
Count Berchtold, Only a Few Weeks
Ago, Bitterly Criticized the War
Party, and His Change of
Front Haa Not as Yet
' "Confusion worse confounded" is tho
ono phrase that aptly characterizes tho
war situation in Europe Tho leading
newspapers and tho moat experienced
observers aro unablo to agrco on any
explanation of tho crisis. And tho rea
son is not far to seek.
Only a few weeks ago tho foreign
minister of Austria, Count Uerchtold,
was earnestly defending tho pacific
and moderate policy ho had boon pur
suing toward tho Halkans and Russia.
Berchtold for Peace.
In a speech to tho delegates at Iluda
post ho vigorously nnsworcd crlUcIsnm
of spokesmen of tho war party, parti
cularly of a dclegato who was sup
posed to bo expressing tho BcntlmontH
of tho thou heir presumptive, tho lato
Archduko Franz Ferdinand. Count
Berchtold spoke of tho a.-jed omperor'B
slnccro and resolute devotion topcaco;
ho gavo nrguments of hlo own, more
over, In support of a policy of patience
Feared Loss of Prestige.
The frankness and directness of that
speech Impressed everybody except
thoso who feared that Austria might
bo accused of timidity and weakness,
might bo misunderstood and in conse
quence, might loso political and mili
Thoro wore soma among these who
thought, moreover, that Russia, whose
recuperatlvo power was wonderful
whatever might bo said of Its efficiency
and actual strength when pitted
against a moro civilized and free pow
erwas getting too mighty and too
confident, and was enjoying too much
opportunity for rehabilitation and con
solidation of Its financial and military
These vaguely favored a bold and
aggressive policy even at the risk of
war, which had better come sooner
than later, they held.
Sweden Takea Up Cry.
Dut Count Derchtold's view pre
vailed for the moment and excellent
observers concluded that Austria, at
any rato, was not going to add to the
troubles, complications, and dangers of
Europe by tempting fortune.
At that very moment Sweden was
excitedly discussing "the Russian
porll" and demanding new measures of
defense, while a section of tho Ger
man press was pointing to the "bear
that1 walks liko a man" ns tho foo to
reckon with In tho near future.
Yet tho peaco of Europe Is broken
not by Russia, not by a Dalkan power
desirous of revising the settlement
Imposed by Roumanla and the concert
of Europo at tho Bucharest conference,
but by Austria, and seemingly under
Count Derchtold's direction.
What has happened In the short In
terval? If pence was necessary and
desirablo to Austria-Hungary a few
weeks ago, why Is war Inevitable to
day? To understand the situation It la es
sential to distinguish between glitter
ing generalities, fanciful aspirations,
literature, and rhetoric, on tho one
hand, and hard, grim, concreto facta
on the other. It Is essential to know
what the conflict 1b not. It is not a
war between Teuton and Slav. It Is
not a war between the Pan-German
world party and the Pan-Slav world
party. It Is not war for the preserva
tion of Hapsburg monarchy.
Move Is Antl-Austrlan.
The Pan-Gorman 'movemept Is anti
Austrian and cannot fall to be so. The
success of that movement would de
stroy Austria as a political entity. Tho
Pan-Gorman extremists have had to bo
rebuked and repudiated by responsi
ble German statesmen. As allies of
Austria they could not countenance a
movement which assumed and labored
for tho disruption and disappearance
The Pan-Slav movement In Russia Is
manifestly anti-Austrian, as well as
anti-German. It dreams of Slav rulo
"from tho Adriatic sea to the Pacific
ocean." It dreams of Slav union or
confederation under the gentle and
benevolent sovereignty of Russia.
Czar's Interest In 8ervla,
Pan-Slavism Is, however, In a lim
ited sense, unmistakably In evidence In
the czar's profound Interest in Servla
snd Montenegro. The czar's ministers
have often blundered in the Balkans

TO LEAD SERVIAN ARMY
Crown Prince Alexander of Servla,
who mado a gallant record during
tho Balkan war, will lead his battle
scarred vetorans against tho Aus
trians. and have at times caused estrange
ment, gravitation toward Germany,
bitter feeling against Russia. But the
blunders wero personal blunders of
bungling politicians. Russia has al
ways posed and often actod as tho pa
tron, friend, and protector of the Slavs
everywhere, and especially of the Bal
kan Slavs. It has had and still has
Its eye on its "estate In reversion,"
Constantinople, and It cannot hope to
plant Its flag there without the consent
and support of the Balkan Slavs. It
1b good "Pan-Slavism" to support Ser
vla. But in facing Austria, Russia con
fronts not a German power, but a pow
er that is itself largely Slav. Slav
will thus be fighting Slav and the Ger
mans, whatever their colors, will be
fighting for Slavs and with other SlavB
and postponing tho realization of the
Pan-German ambitions and dreams.
Jealousy a Great Factor.
Here, then, is a strango paradox,
but not tho only paradox In a situation
full of anomalies anomalies Insepara
ble from the very naturo and complex
ion of the Austro-Hungarlan emptro.
an empire, to repeat, that has boon
held together qulto as much by tho
jealousies and differences of outsiders
as by the dynastic and personal in
fluence of the Hapsburgs.
If Austria cannot and does not rep
resent German Interests and Gorman
culture in this fight, what Is it fighting
for? Pan-Servian agitation did not
endanger Its existence, whllo tho war
does. Its own Slav elements at no
time displayed an inclination to ex
change its rule for that of tho czar,
although they were not averse to us
ing Pan-Slav slogans In order to secure
better representation and larger recog
nition. Danger to Dual Monarchy.
The opinion of the soundest students
of politics has long been that If Austria-Hungary
was to be preserved, only
a policy of peace, liberalism, greater
autonomy, and home rule, conciliation
of the various races and elements by
reform measures, political and social,
contained the promise of such preser
vation. The war actually endangers tho ex
istence of the dual monarchy, for aside
from tho chances of defeat and disas
ter, there Is tho fact that the Slav sub
jects of tho emperor cannot sympa
thize with It. The separatist and par
tlcularist tendencies feared by tho
court and government can only be
doepened and strengthened by tho con
flict. The army and navy may bo loyal
and obedient, as many assert. Tho
army and navy may bo "Austrian," If
the nation Is not. But popular senti
ment Is a potent factor In war and
popular sentiment among tho Austrian
and Hungarian Slavs does ont favor
No wonder tho intelligent world Is
puzzled and utterly at a loss to explain

LESSON FOR AUGUST 9
THE BARREN FIG TREE AND THq
LESSON TKXT-Mark UllZ-M.
QOI.DICN TKXT "lly their fruits
shall know thorn." Matt. 7:2a
Event crowds fast upon tho heels ot
event during tho days ot this most
traglo weok In all tho history ot tho
world. Tempornnco meanB restraint
and aconBtralnlngly proporuso of God
given nppctltos and privileges, honce
tho significance of this lesson na em
phasizing tho principles of temper
I. Sealing, vv. 12-14. Tho day fol
lowing his triumphal entry into Jeru
salem Josus and his disciples Journeyed
from Bothany, his abiding plnco, each
night, Into tho city. Soolng lcavos
upon tho fig trees, ho had a right
to look for fruit, for tho fruit of that
troo comes beforo tho foliage. But
nono Is found, and Jcsub BenlB its
barrenness. Ills act was n parable -In
action, Hosun 10: 1. Profession had
superseded possession, nnd Israel Is
therefore- to bo Judged, sot naldo, un
til tho day when they shall look upot
him whom they have- pierced.
Cleansed the Temple.
II. Cleansing, vv. 15-19. Entering
Iho familiar Bccnos of tho city and
templo, whenco tho hosannas had
echoed so loudly tho day previous,
Jesus saw its desecration and degrada
tion. Outwardly a dollght, It was in
wardly deceitful, "a don of robbors,"
and his anger waxed hot Everything
ho saw and bnnlBhcd wnB In Bomo way
connected with tho templo worship.
Even so tho most holy things crcutod
by tho wisdom of a loving God may bo
como tho Instruments of tho most des
picable degradation. Ostensibly In
tho name of religion theso tomplo mer
chants wero In reality ministering to
self nnd private gain. As at the
beginning of his ministry so again
JesuB exercised his authority and
cleansed tho templo from its pollution
and for a time (v. 16) guarded It
from further desecration.
Tho temperance application at this
point is very clear. Appetite, men
tal or physical, is a God given faculty,
but must bo kept within control. Prop
erly used they aro a delight, a bless
ing to tho man and his friends. Al
lowed to rulo and appetites aro terrif
ic task masters. Purify the fountain
of a man's heart, govern his motive
and tho stream of his acts will bloBS
all, himself Included.
III. Forgiving, vv. 20-25. The next
day pn the way from Bethany to Je
rusalem they again passed tho fig
tree and It was withered. Tho disci
ples marvolod at tho swift execution
of his curso and Peter callB attention
to it, v. 21, Matt. 21:12, 20. In reply
Jesus again emphasizes tho lesson,
"llavo faith In God." This docs not
mean that this is an explanation of
how ho withered tho treo, but rather
why It had died. Israel was placing
Its trust elsewhere than In God, and
theroforo withers from tho "roots up
ward." Notlco that tho root is not
blasted, and a beautiful treo will again
blossom forth from tho living root.
So Israel shall onco again spring up
into a now and fruitful nation, Isa.
27:6. Jesus' teaching by this treo Is
an Illustration of wherein Israel had
failed. They had not faith In God.
Faith can remove mountains, and no
difficulty con hinder those who have
faith In God, Mark 9:23. Faith grows
upon tho word, Rom. 10:7, yet love Is
greater, I Cor. 13:2. It we really de
sire the things we pray for, we "shall
have them." We not only expect but
go beyond In our potitlon and count
as ours tho things asked for. The
lack of a forgiving spirit will effect
uaUy shut us out from God.
IV. Challenged, vv. 27-33. Upon
again entering the city and tho tem
ple, there came to Josus tho chlel
priests, scribes and elders who chal
lenged the authority by which he
wrought these things, undoubtedly re
ferring to his triumphal entry and to
his cleansing of tho tomplo. Ills
reply Is a counter challengo concern
ing the baptism of John. For at least
two years John had been doad and
his volco silent with a probable for
getfulness on the part of these men,
and a decreasing Influence of his mes
sage upon their lives. Yot the ques
tion of Jesus had projected power as
he brought; John back to them with
this question as to his authority, "was
it from heaven, or of men?" Thai
there was keen sarcasm and cold loglo
embodied In his question la revealed
by the recorded dilemma of his ene
mies, rv. 31, 32.
This entlro passage deals with the
responsibility ot privilege. Particu
larly Is this epitomized In the para
ble of the fig tree. Privilege is em
phasized in that tho tree was planted
In tho vineyard of its ownor, it lived

sponsibility was to boar fruit. lit

the privilege ot its surroundings it

parents, of Christian society and tho
(berltago of tho noblo martyrs and
ealutB of the church will not save that
man or woman who "has a name to

Ono building ho found to bo of spe

In revolutionary days as both church
and flchoolliouso. Tho Lovcring
school at Illdgo avonuo and Levering
stroot, is now used by tho youths -of
Itoxborough. It was erected in 1748
by William L. Lovcring, who was to
distinguish himself as an ofllcor In
tho strugglo for American indepen
dence. It was for many years used
by both churchgoors and pupils. On
Sunday tho Baptists worshiped thoro
and on week days their children,
studied on tho long, hard benches.
This doubling of purposes was very
common in colonial days. Further
moro, tho Lovcring school was used
as a meeting placo for tho colonists
during tho strenuous pro-rovolutlonary
dlscuBBlons. Tho Itoxborough Inhabi

but tho next year It was replaced by
a moro modern structure. Roxbor

kept increasing in such numbers that
by 1894 moro accommodations were
nocessary, and tho present house waa
eroctod. Levering did not have hla
named attached to tho school, and It
was only in 1847 that "Roxborough"
was wiped oft and "William L. Lever
