The lace of the Earth. '
Geologists toll us that In rrehls

through a aeries of cataclysms and
transformations making Its appear
ance at one period almost unrecog
nizable from its appearance at an
other. Since Its habitation by man
the earth has experienced slow and
violent changes of various kinds,
making it repeatedly necessary to re
draw the map. Coast lines have been
submerged, volcanic mountains blown
off, Islands have disappeared and
new Islands formed, rivers have
broken Into new courses, and great
lakes dried up.
Dut these changes are to be ascribed
to the operations of natural causes.
What has been accomplished by the
hand of man Is almost Impercelvable,
for so puny are our efforts that few
human achievements have worked a
really noticeable change In the face
of the earth. The great pyramids.
the dykes In the Dutch sea, the tun

for the railroads, the diversion of
rivers into artificial channels, the
storage of great bodies of water in
massive reservoirs are properly pro
nounced marvels, but measured on
the terrestrial footrule they are but
It Is by comparison, or contrast,
that two gigantic human enterprises
stand out above all others In their
transforming effect on the face of
the earth the Suez canal, mingling
the waters of the Mediterranean and
the Red sea, and cutting asunder two
continents that the primeval forces
of nature had united, and the Panama
canal, which will mark a similar
epoch by merging the Atlantic and
the Pacific, and severing the physical
contact of the two great continents
of the western hemisphere. The
opening of the Panama canal will
change the map of the world, as it
has never been changed before ex
cept by the opening of the Sues canal.
What future generations may ac
complish in the transformation of
their earthly abode would be fool
hardy to attempt to predict. But it
is safe to say that even after the lapse
of centuries the digging of the
Panama canal will be ranked among
the wonders of the world, and be
credited to the dauntless energy and
unmatched resources of the people of
the United States. j
The Failure of War.
President Taft goes straight to the
core of this question of war versus
arbitration as, a means of settling in
ternational disputes when he says: i
If we are really 1n favor of arbitration
as a means of avoiding- war, then why
should we not be 'willing to submit to
Impartial men the decision upon a ques
tion rather than to leave It to the result I
of a bloody battle, In which, with a fair
cause, we might be beaten or with an
unjust cause, we might conquer?
And therein lies the Inherent fail
ure of war to accomplish what It is
designed for. Allowing for the will
and help of Divine Providence, this
still constitutes a powerful practical
argument against a resort to arms as
a final arbitrament. It is easily pos
sible for the weaker of two belliger
ent powers to be morally right and
the stronger to be morally wrong.
as, Indeed, haa happened in the his
tory of nations. Defeat in such in
stances becomes the penalty of weak
ness, instead of the token of Justice.
A certain school of faith healing
Ingenuously asks why, if medicine
be the proper remedy for human ills,
do we continue after centuries of
medicine-using, to have illness and
affliction? Ot course, the question
is received by most people as spe
cious, but the principle might be ap
plied to the question of war. Does
war settle disputes? We have fewer
wars now than we did, hut is It be
cause of the Inherently peaceful ef
fect of war? Ia it not rather because
men have come to see the futility
and costliness of war as a means of
permanently settling disputes be
tween nations and peoples that, to
gether with the bitter experiences and
memories of the horrors of war in
their effect upon a more enlightened
and more progressive civilization?
"Either we are in favor of arbitra
tion of Issues which are likely to lead
to war or we are not," declares the
president. "If we are in favor of
war as the only means of settling
questions of Importance between
countries, then let us recognize it as
a principle and decline all arbitra
tion." But no senate, however Jeal
ous of Its traditions, Is going to hold
back the onward tide of arbitration
as against engulfing war, for it is not
within the power of any one body
or any one nation to control that cur-
rent of destiny. '
Following; the Leader.
Most people like to claim the dis
tinction of being self-posBeBsed and
original, especially In their thinking,
yet how common it is for us to look
to accepted leaders for thought on
subjects of current Interest and how
regularly, though passing them
through the crucible of our own crit
icism, do we, consciously or uncon
sciously, fall into our guide's way of
seeing things. Sometimes, on sec
ond thought, or under the spur of a
friendly fillip, we question and hesi
tate, but generally take the cue Just
Let some live issue in politics or
business or most any other field
come up and see how eagerly the
average man among us finds himself
awaiting the opinion of so and so
before finally forming his own. We
are much more timid than our brusk
twentieth century aggressiveness
would Indicate. We are slow to
venture out upon new ground. It
may be as much vanity as timidity,
though the fear of getting caught
on the wrong foot And it Is not
altogether a bad thing, for it shows
that while we are vain, we do not
intend to be nor relish being so con
sidered. The popular newspaper and maga
zine have had much to do with this
tendency to follow the leader. Two
men meet In the car on their way.

This Is especially true In public
matters. So many men are or think
they are, too busy with their own pri
vate business to bother about public
business, so they are content to ac
cept the advice of one In whom they
have confidence. It is an expert's or
specialist's age and the man who
goes Into a subject thoroughly com
mands confidence by his knowledge.
But yet the same- rule holds good
vice versa in business or science of
other kinds we are prone to pick
out a leader and follow him. That,
of course, involves the moral of pick
ing the right sort of leaders.
Strength of the Protective Idea.
Writing on the eve of the election
his observations on the political cam
paign during his ten days' lecture
tour of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward
Island and Cape Breton inland, Wil
liam J. Bryan declares:
The situation in Canada la so much like
the situation in our country that I am
greatly enjoying the fight. The real Is
sue Is tho old economic one between pro
tection and a tariff for revenue only,
colored by a few outside Issues which we
do not have. The protectionists are combatting-
any reduction of the tariff and
threatening dire disaster to Canadian In
dustries if the wall Is lowored. The friends
of reciprocity, however, are as energeti
cally picturing the advantages of freer
trade between the countries. For partisan
purposes the conservatives deliberately
appeal to prejudice, and try to make capi
tal by cultivating a spirit of unfrlsndll
ness to the United States. The Indications
are that the effort will fall.
So Mr. Bryan was fooled, too, al
though he was on the spot and had
better means of informing himself
than the rest of us.
The significance of Mr. Bryan's
comment, however, is not in his fail
ure as a prophet, for he has been a
perennial false prophet, but in his
identification of the reciprocity fight
In Canada with the old question of
protection versus free trade, with
which we in this country have peri
odically grappled. Seeing reciprocity
a forerunner to free trade and the
destruction of their protective sys
tem, Canadians have, by decisive ma
jorities, rejected the proposition,
which would indicate that on the
other side of the border, at least, the
principle of protection is as strong
as ever. However loudly the altru
istic doctrine of national self-sacrifice
may be preached, the stubborn
fact is that each nation prefers
to build up its own industries, and in
sure employment of its own working
people rather than of other countries.
So if Canada rejects reciprocity on
the ground that it is a step toward
free trade, it is hardly likely that the
United States is ready, even under
the persuasive plea of Mr. Bryan, to
throw its traditional policy of pro
tection to home industries to the
winds, and Jump blindly Into a vortex
of free trade.
Good Move by Churches.
The church finds a large problem
especially for its disposal In the rapid
growth and development of the west,
particularly those sections where ir
rigation projects are peopling new
territories and evolving new condi
tions of community life. It is the
problem of the rural church. And
the Home Missions Council, a body
composed of twenty-two general
home mission boards and societies of
Protestant denominations, has ad
dressed Itself to the solution of this
The first preliminary step to be
taken will be what is called a "neg
lected field survey," that Js, by con
certed action the churches will survey
the field comprising several states
to 'find out exactly where more
churches are needed and where there
may be too many. It Is expected to
devote one year to this survey and
the subject Is to be studied from
every conceivable standpoint. Con
ferences are to be held in various
cities at various times for the ex
change of information and Ideas be
fore anything is done toward actu
ally supplying the needs.
In a recent circular issued by the
Home Missions Council the aate-
meat Is made that "There are great
numbers ot neglected fields. We
find in one western state 133towns
of from 160 to 1.000 souls jhlthout
any Protestant religious wok, 100
of them, being also withouf Roman
Catholic work. In additionto these.
there are 428 communities of suffl
cient Importance to have postofflces,
but without any churches."

much criticism for having too many
denominational organizations in
small communities, but It has not

world because It lacked) organizations

In fields that are supplied with more
churches than they, can support, ef
forts will be made to merge some or

The spirit of this certainly Is com
mendable and will undoubtedly
arouse the admiration ot the world
looking on. The tendency of evan
gelical churches to eliminate denom
inational lines wherever possible
helps to exalt the church as a whole.
After all, while it is natural for men
to differ in their religious as well as
political views they always have
and, they always will there is but

Kansas will have to hurry if it pro
poses to keep ahead of Chicago in
running an up-to-date domestic sci

out the culinary wisdom to boys as

added a novelty to Its curriculum,
which Kansas has evidently not yet
thought of. It Is the art of teaching
young women how to shop, that Is.
how to get the most for the least
money the finest sort of a knowl
edge for a young woman expecting
soon to have a household of her own

cially adapted to young women of
that predilection. The Idea is for
the girls to accompany their teacher
down into the markets and go right
at the business of buying, so their
experience will be practical and not
theoretical. The Chicago Tribune
