STMIK Lord hits made us much ullkc,
AnU made us nil akin:
Three meals n day, and work and piny,
And night to slumber In.
We're high and low, wo're rich mid
And think we tire apart;
But, In our pain, our Joy again,
We have the common heart.
The Lord has uii'de us much alike,
However else It seems;
The pooros't man has still his plan,
Ills visions ami his dreams.
And, If humanity shall rise,
Together we iiiiift start,
The high and low together, no
We liave the common heart.
The Lord has made us much allko
And made us like to Him.
Build not so high the shadows He
Another's path to dim.
All you can suffer He can feel,
And tears of sorow smart
The eyes of all, as hotly fall
Upon the common heart.
The Lord has made us much alike
Think not of elan nor class,
Hut understand and shape the land
iRenicnibering the mass.
Grant rich or poor the rightly his,
There lies the statesman's art
With Justice thrilled, tho nation build
Upon the common heart!

a Unitarian. Jefferson Is vaguely
classified as u "liberal." While he at

Joining In Its communion, he was,

Following Jefferson came two Epis
copalians, Madison and Montoc; then
John'Qulncy Adams, a Unitarian, and
nfter him the first of the six Presby

nonry Harrison and Tyler, Episco
palians; Polk, Presbyterian; Taylor,
Episcopalian ; Fillmore, Unitarian.
Pierce, Episcopalian, and Buchanan,
Lincoln Is assigned by some author
ities to the Presbyterians, while others
believe the Unitarians have a greater
claim on him. He occasionally at
tended the Presbyterian church, al
though he was not n member.
Andrew Johnson Is Included among
the Methodists, apparently being among
those who are now described ns "hav
ing .their religion in their wives'
names." (Irant and Hayes were Metli-
oillstx, and Garfield a member of the
Disciples of Christ. Arthur was an
Episcopalian, the last of a long line.
The Presbyterians then had Cleveland,
Pionjnmln Harrison and Cleveland
again. McKinley was a Methodist.
Then came Itoosevelt, the second of
the Iteformed presidents, who was,
however, a pillar In the Episcopal
church In Oyster Hay. Taft was a
Unitarian and Wilson a Presbyterian.

Distance Devouring Doctors.
A committee of doctors, appointed
by the governor, has reported ad
versely to subsidizing rural physicians
so that farming communities may be
sure of prompt medical attendance.
Time was when some such measure
wos desirable, observes the New York
Herald. Too often the country doctor
lost n race with death or with the
stork because the ancient steed could
not flounder further through rutty
roads or drifted snowbanks. This au
tomobile has mnde n difference. Not
only does It far outstrip the old buck
board In speed, but its introduction
has brought good roads In Its wake.
Few Country districts In the state now
are more thnn 15 minutes from the
nearest. From the time that his tel
ephone tinkles the emergency call
until his hand Is on the pulse of the
patient be Is doing .10 or -10 miles an
hour, which the green cross on his ear
excuses in he,, eyes of the trnlllc' po
liceman. A heroic and Interesting fig
ure In American life was the old, gray
whiskered family doctor urging Dobbin
through miry ways at tho call of duty.
Hut he has gone, never to return.
Concrete for the Tornado.
If we were building a house In the
country or In a small rural community
In those regions where tornndoes
sweep with tho greatest frequency and
errancy, wo should like to experiment
In erecting a structure composed en
tirely of concrete.
We have a notion that those whirl
ing tempests peculiar to the Missis
sippi valley would find difficulty In
yanking a concrete house loose nnd
scattering It over the fn"ee of the
Perhaps we have too much confi
dence In the poured house, and an
able-bodied tornado could turn It com
pletely over If It could not tear It to
pieces, but we should like to see tho
building experiment tried.
It Is known, well enough, that a
tornado makes no task at all of pick
ing up a structure of timber and shak
ing It Into fragments as a bulldog
might do with a chicken. And the
havoc once done In St. Louis nnd
other towns anil cities proves masonry
Is no grent obstacle to this demon of

might be the tornado's Waterloo. St.

A MY, signifying beloved, is derived
from the Latin "amo," to love.
There Is an adjective amabllls, mean
ing lovable, which gave rise to the
feminine proper name Almable, much
used In curly times, probably through
some complimentary allusion to the
quality which Is an admirable If
sometimes rare feminine possession.
The first Almable known to history
was the Norman heiress of Glouces
ter who so Rtrongiy protested against
accepting even n king's son without a
name. On English lips, her nnme be
came Amubel, which has been hand
ed down practically unchanged In
English families. France adopted the
name, after pluelng the stamp of her
lnnguago upon It, und long honored a

MEASURING DEPTH OF OCEANhwwwww
Simple Matter, but Vessel Has to Be
Handled With the Most Consum
In ninny places the s-ou Is between ,
three und four miles deep. How have . ;
we been able to measure these enor
It Is done by means of soundings, to
make which great skill and patience
are required. Specially equipped ves
sels are employed for the task; they
carry Ingenious machines upon which
are wound six or seven miles of wlie
similar to piano wire. At the end of
the wire Is a tube two inches across
and two feet long, and at the bottom
is a trapdoor which opens when the
tube strikes the sea floor.
The tube weighs about ten pounds,
and in iitldltloit there are throe weights
of oU pounds each. These are fitted
In such a manner that they fall off
when they reach the bottom of the sea.
This Is necessary, for when soundings
ure being taken at great depths no
wire would bu strong enough to pull
them up again. Even as it is, the wire
often breuks and the tube Is lost.
The object of the tube Is to pick up
a sample of the sea bottom, which Is
preserved la bottles und sent to labora
tories. When 'a sounding has to be taken
the brake on the machine Is released,
and the wire runs out at u rate of (iOO
t'eet a minute. If the ocean is live
miles deep It takes three-quarters of
an hour for the tube to reaeli the
A special device is used to prevent
the wire from- being Jerked us the ship
rolls. The moment tho tube reaches
the bottom brakes .are applied auto
matically. A dial shows exactly how
much wire has been played out. The
wire has attached to.it at vurious in
tervals thermometers, which show the
temperature of the sea at various
depths. The greater the depth, the
colder the water becomes.
Only very capable seamen are car
ried on ships taking soundings, for If
the vessel Is not handled carefully a
totally wrong set of results may be
obtulned. On the surface there Is
usually n current, while at the bottom
there Is apparently none. Therefore
the ship bus. to be maneuvered against
the current in order that the wire may
be kept vertical.
When the state of Maine In 18SS sold
Ogunqult beuch, In the town of Wells,
to ix New Hampshire resident for $1(K),
it disposed of a property which, slnco
the popularity of the Maine shore as a
summer resort became marked, bus
returned great profits. Now the own
er, who bus since sold to cottagers
much of the property, threatens to sell
the beach Itself to persons who would
close It to the public, and permanent
und summer residents have asked the
state to buy It buck for 535,000.
The beach property was part of the
Ferdinand Gorges grant In the early
days of the colonization of the Maine
const. In HMO the Gorges family dls
posed of It, and in 1078 the state of
Massachusetts tool: over the property.
In 1S21 tile new slate of Maine bought
half of it, acquiring the rest III) years
After the sale of the property, resi
dents formed the ogunqult corpora
tion, which has leased It r succes
sive terms of years in order to keep
It open to the public. The lease calls
for a payment of $15,000 a year. Al
though the latest lease has several
years to run, the owner lias attacked
Its validity, claiming that the corpora
tion has violated some of the terms
of the contract.
"Movies" Spread Information.
From l,r,00 to 2,000 persons living
In rural districts, often remote from
railroads and cities, are each weelc
seeing government motion pictures
dealing with the eradication of cattle
ticks and related subjects. The bu
reau of animal Industry, United States
Department of Agriculture, has a port
able motion picture outfit which is
constantly on circuit In parts of the
South where preliminary tick eradica
tion Is being conducted Preliminary
work consists In the explanation of
tho purpose and benefits of eradicat
ing cattle fever ticks which In the past
have taken an enormous toll from the
live stock industry. Depending on
weather conditions and density of pop.
ulatlon, attendance ranges from 75 to
U50. Showings are made during the
day and In the evening. To many
persons the government motion pic
tures are the first ones they have seen.
Save the Toad.
Toads will eat four times the capac
ity of their stomachs In 24 hours.
Three-fifths of a toad's food consists
of Insects harmful to vegetation. The
Department of Agriculture estimates
that a single toad In n garden during
the months nf June, July and August,
when Insects are most harmful to
growing plants, Is worth $10.11 to the
owner. This llguto Is bused on the
damage known to he caused by cut
worms, gypsy inoth'i, army worms anil
other destructive Insects, all of which
are relished by the toad.
