A Vagrant Mind
By ELLA WHEELER WILCO.Y.
Copyright. 1314. by In ternatlonal News Service.
Since early this morning the world has seemed surging
With unworded rhythm, and rhyme without thought.
It may be the Muses take this way of urging
The patience and pains by which poems R.e wrought.
It may be some singer who passed into glory,
With songa all unfinished, is lingering near
And trying to tell me the rest of the story,
. Which I am. tQ dull of perception to hear.: ,;.-;1
I hear not, I see not; but feel the sweet swinging
And swaying of metre. In sunlight and shade,
The still arch of Space with music is ringing
As never an audible orchestra made.
The moments glide by me, and each one is dancing;
Aquiver with life is each leaf on the tree,
And out on the ocean is movement entrancing,
As billow with billow goes racing with glee.
With never a thought that is worthy the saying,
And never a theme to be put into song.
Since early this morning my mind has been straying,
A vagabond thing, with a vagabond throng.
With gay, Idle moments, and waves of the ocean,
With winds and with sunbeams, the treetops and birds.
It has lifted along in the joy of mere motion,
To songs without music and verse without words.

The Cost of War
Hy REV. THOMAS B. GREGORY.
An analysis of tlif history of mankind,
Kkys tlM gietitest of military (inthurkles,
howB that from thp yoar J4H6 H. C. to
tho year 1U of our era that is, In a
cycle of ".Ho" years
t h e r.e wore 'i
yearn of peace ami
.'MM yeara. of war.
Jn other words, there
were thirteen years
uf war for every
ear of peace.
For the ancient
war figures are. of
course, lacking; but
for most of the
modern wars they
have been prterved
and stand tta if host I y
reminders of our
human folly and cruelty.
Krom the authorities it Is learned that
liie expenditure by T.nglard in conse
quence of the Frenc h wars of the reolu
t'on and of the ftr.t empire amounted
tc 4,3"0,iO,OOl). The tout of the war with
Fiance from 112 to IMS waa $4.O0O,0'A.
The Crimean war cost England, France,
I'.usHia and the other parties to the con-
fl'ct the grand total rt Jl. ,WMKM-
The war of IfS ot Austria, France
and Sardinia 2."5.n.0". and thr 1'rus-.lan-Austrian
war of 16 cost f.TJf,000,0iO.
The cist of tho Franco-rrusslun war
uf 1T0 was $J,U'.."jO,OiX, all of which had
tu be paid by France. To this mint be
adJed the losses from the Interruption
uf common! .aticn and work, which bring
the cost of the war up to douLlc the
The Ruseo-Turklhh war of li'S cost the
two powers $l.21".H.sK
Thus we find that from lio to 187S, a
Itiiod of twenty-five years, the ex
penditure on the great wars of Kurope
the Crimean, that of 18G9; the Austro
Trusslan war of 18fr, the Franco-Prua-sian
war of ISi'O, and the Husso-Turklsh
war f 1877-" reaches th Immense sum
The great Civil war In the Fulled
States cost the North and South together
14,(00.000,030. and probably double that
sum from loss of property and decline
It may be said t,hat the present war in
Europe will cost approximately, for every
day that It laats. over $35,000,000, to Kay
nothing of the loss from tho cessation
of production and commerce.
As to the number of human beings
who have fallen In the war game from
the hoary dawn down to the present, no ;
one can possibly know. The editor of
Haydn's "dictionary of dates," puge 1.4W,
says: "It has been computed that up to
the middle of the nineteenth century
6,S0.000,0O0.000 men have perished on the
field of battle.-1
In one year, nays Taine. 1,300.000 men
were called out. and moat of them
Derlshed In the campaign cf 114. Be
tween 1H and IMS Napoleon sent to their I
i death more than 1.700, Frenchmen, to'
whom must be added probably 2,0n0,000
of men born outside of France. From 1
first to last, this modem mlnotaur de
voured five million human beings.
And Napoleon waa enly one of the
mlnotaur who. scattered thickly about
the earth, were busy for 3,130 rut of the
3,ji7 years from H96, B. C, slaughtering
their kind thirt'jen days for every day
that they rested from their bloody work.
In the light of this fact, it may acem
quite probable that the awful figures
given In Haydn are correct, and that the
number slain in war would be equal to
more than four times the present popu
lation of the whole world.

, A Suspend an exceedingly accurate

to be ho delicately balanced that the at

At end of half a year the earth and

1;.i0,uou miles from where It wss on Its

Tell Your Mather.
1ear .Miss Fairfax: I am a girl 17 and
have a number of admirers. My mother
has always objected to my going about
with any of my boy friends, but last Sun
day I went on a Mil up the Hudson with
a boy friend without my mother's knowl
edge. I'.ven on the sail I could not enjoy
my surroundings because of a reproach
fu conscience, and since then I have
worried constantly. 1 long to confess to
my mother, but cannot bring myself to
do so. as she will be terribly shocked.
Tell your mother of your disobedience
you will have no peace of mind, until
you have confessed. Kxplatu to her how
you long for a few Innocent pleasures
and how you yielded to your desire and
went on this sail up the Hudson without
her knowledge. When you tell her how
you have suffered I am sure she will come
to a better understanding of you and be
more Inclined to allow you a few outing
if you promise to do nothing of which
she would have the least cause to dis
approve. flhoald ot Remain After Elevew.
Dear Miss Fairfax: I live In a rooming
house and share my room with a girl
friend. I have been receiving attention
from a young man for more than a year.
Il rlla utmost every evening and stays
! sometimes till half-past one or two In the
morning. I protested several times. Din
his excuse Is that the evening Is the only
time ha has to see me, and therefore
stays till both my friend and I are tired
out I have asked him not to, but he
says that Is his only time to visit me, aa
he works all day. What shall I do?
Kven with your friend to act aa chap
eron, it would be better to receive your
friend in the living room of the house
where you live. In any event you must
not iiermit him to remutn after 11 o'clock.
When going to places of amusement It la
necei-sary to remain out late, but callera
who linger as late as your friend subject
you to unkind criticism.
