'Tis no more than natural that wars
That blood be spilled on land and sea.
For might Is sometimes a nation's
A- plague that shakes the Universe.
Bo not surprised when seas run red,
And darkness hides the faces of un
For men will scrap, and what of that.
What's wrong is wrong, what's right
Right 1b not power, nor power's not
So let them fight. Content to know
Each strives to show his strength of
Right against his foe.
There have been wars; there will be
Unnumbered lives must pay the score
That giveB a nation the right to boast,
To rob the sea, to ravage a coast
They will scrap on. Oh! what of that,
So long as their right Is justified.
Though truth be crucified.
The weak must yield unto the strong,
Yet knowing this, they still fight on,
And which 1b right and which Is wrong
Let time and fate decide.
For the greatest amount of inde
pendence in the smallest possible space
commend us to Young America. He
knows that the United States can whip
any country on earth, and he Is proud
of it. Ho can not help but glory in
the achievements of his forefathers,
and he seeks to emulate them in deeds
of dariqg. True his activities lie in an
entire different field, but his courage
is equally aa great. And it sometimes
happens that he ranges closo to the
sound of musketry, when on a puni
live expedition to his neighbor's or
chard or. melon patch. For he Is a
parasite "on nls neighbor's vegetation,
and when attacked he certainly makes
valorous efforts to get away.
Turning tho pages of the unwritten
history of baseball, ono reads tho rec
ords of glorious deeds and judicial fa
talities, without thinking of the prom
inent part played by Young Amorica.
Games have been lost and won, for
tunes change and exchanged, and even
pennants captured through the ear
splitlig activities of America's gifted
youth. The youth who crawls through
n corn-field and runs tho guard of tho
deadheads who manage to get in by
keeping others out, Is a blessing in dis
guise. Wait till the exciting moment
arrives when tho homo team Is in dan
ger of getting beaten and the specta
tors feel blue. Then In tho midst of
it all, when even the most patriotic fan
has lost his tongue, a thin, piping
voice sullies forth from obscurity with
some strikingly humorous phrase that
raibtis tno ioughand restores confidence
to tho wavering ones. Almost immedi
ately a battery of youthful voices is
sot in action, firing point-blank at the
opQeition some of the finest and clean
cut, sarcasm over devised. Ono small
boy' of seven years can throw rlngn
around a regiment of ordinary rooters,
when once ho gets intothe proper
mood. And when a hundred of his
kind Is turned loose, -Imagine tho ef-
feet if you can. In amatuer games, at
Tenet, tho quostlon of supremacy does
not rest ho much with tho curves and
strategy of tho pitchers, as with, the
number of small boys on the field.

time. He can perpetrate and appreci
ate humor with equal facility. Al
though his English cousin has many
good traits of sturdiness and solfrro
liance, Young America Is bottor ablo
to act to better advantage. Ho Is quick
er at perception,' and does not havo to
carry a joke in tho recesses of hls-skull
a year or two before he can Bee tho
point. A lad fresh from England waa
explaining tho circumstances of his ex
odus from England to this country, and
in tones of great pride, ho said:
"My hunclo a rich lord In 'Amp
fihire. and he was bloomin' good to us.
'E gave papa the money to come out
'ero on, dnd 'e would 'ave sent us
clear to California if we'd wanted to
Now how long would it take Young
America to penetrate the "rich hun
cIc'b" designs to get rid of his poor
relatives. Yet in spite of their dospalr
ity in humor, the youth of America
and Britain have many good traits in
common, and If there ever coraci a
time when they must stand shoulder to
shoulder In battle against the rest of
the world, they will make a good fight
But Young America, like the Missou
ri mule, is a strictly American Insti
tution. He is bright and aggressive,
and never takes to tho woods except
as a matter of discretion. Whether he
becomes famous and hangs In the gal
lery of famous men or in Nebraska
penitentiary, or lives in obscurity, his
truth qualities will always remain the
He is sympathetic too, and binds up
the bruised toe of a comrade with as
much careful consideration as he would
his own. But the sight of a dog with
a can tied to his tail is a pleasing sight
to him, and he is not averse to making
the required connection. Indeed, his
unkindness In teaching the dog bad
habits by making him rush the can
can not bo excused on any grounds.
Hla sense of knightllness is always
keenly alive and he 1b willing to stand
on his head for a year, if the curious
little miss on tho other side of the
fence will ony stand and admire him.
When he gets older he falls victim to
tho wiles of some bulging eyed beauty,
and his life changes from a comedy to
a tragedy, and In the careless, light
hearted youth one can see foreshad
owed the serious, hard-working man
of the world.
It Is not always the firm who makes
the most noise and has the loudest
signs that does the business of largest
proportions. Occasional tooting of
horns Is good, but a horn that toots
all the time becomes motononous.
