Oh. Poor Sick World!
Lord of alt the Universe, whcj I think of You.
Flinging stars out into space, moving suns and tides;
Then this little mortal mind geta the larger view,
And the carping self of me runs away and hides.
Then I see all shadowed paths leading out'to Light;
See the false things fade awny, leaving but the True;
See the wrong things slay themselves, leaving only Right;
When this little mortal mind gets the larger view.
Cavillings at this and that, censure, doubt and fear,
Fly as fly before the dawn Inserts of the night;
Life and Death are understood; everything seems clear;
AH the wrong things slay themselves, leaving only Right.
The W orld has walked with fever in its veins
For many and many a day. Oh, poor, sick World!
Not knowing all its dreams of greed and gain,
Of selfish conquest and possession, were
Disordered visions of a brain diseased.
Now the World's malady Is at its height,
And there is foul contagion in its breath.
It raves of death and slaughter; and the stars
Shake with reverberations of its cries.
And the sad seas are troubled and dismayed.
So It must rave this sick and suffering World
Until the old secretions In its blood
Are emptied out and purged away by war;
And the decp-seated cankers of the mind
Begin the healing process. Then a calm
Shall come upon the earth; and that loved word
PEACE shall be understood from shore to shore.
Shriek on. mad World! The great Physician sits
Serenely conscious of the coming change,
Nor seeks to check the fever; it must run
Until Its course is finished. He can wait.
In His vast Solar Systems He has seen
So many other worlds delirious,
He feels but pity for His ailing charge,
Not blame or anger. And He knows the hour
Will surely dawn when that sick child shall wake.
Free from all frenzied fancies, and shall turn
Clear-seeing eyes upon the face of God,
Then shall begin the true Millennium.
Lord of all the Unlverso, when I think of You,
Then this little mortal mind gets the larger view;
Then I see all shadowed paths leading into Light,
Where the wrong things Blay themselves, leaving only Right.

This may not bo agreeable to universal movernPnt 0f the crab, thanks to which

In his new book on

tec, professor in tho

whoso atheHttc
view I have no aym
rathy, but toward
whose s c lentiflc
knowledpe a-1 1 the
world is respectful,
lays down this law:
"The essential vital
act is an act of defense."
I find Mr. Ix- Dan
tec's development of this theme
as interesting as a good story and a
great deal more important.
He takes a walk on the seashore when
tho tide Is out and, digging up a crab I
from the wet sand with his cane, , lie
throws himself into a fencing attltudo
and begins to make passes at the as
tonished and Irritated animal. The crab
faces tho music and, with his pinceni
erect, Is ready for his aggressor at every

Now this conduct of tho poor crab
badgered by an Inquisitive and Imperti
nent savnnt Is, Mr. I.e Dantec finda,
"perfectly anthropomorphic." this Is to
say, in plain words, Just what a man
would do in similar circumstances, and
he likens It In particular to the sparring
of a pair of bruisers In the boxing ring.
Those who have followed Mr. Le Dan
tec thus far may not sfe that they are
inu7h advanced toward a comprehension
of;the statement that all life Is a fight.
Or an act of defense. But follow his next
step and you may at least find new food
for thought.
The examples of the Irritated crab and
the wafchful boxer are, he admit, open
i to the object'on that in them Intelligence
i enters Into play, and what la wanted is
proof that life exhibits the same defen
sive acts and attitude' when Intelligence
is not tn question. The proof he offers
will surprise you. Here it Is:
How does it happen that a man, a
young lamb or chicken, stands erect?
This phenomenon is the result of a
prodigious assemblage of factors. One
mr.y say that all parts of the Individual
collaborate to produce the vertical at
titude, and If this co-ordination of parte
Is destroyed, as by a sudden congestion,
or a pistol shot, the animal falls. The
cause of the erect attitude la the attrac
tion of gravitation.
That attraction acts as an aggressive

truths. Of course, we know that, being,
human, we must have little blemishes,
but we live In the fond belief that we
keep them covered up so that the general
public Isn't even aware that they exist,
and It's always a shock when we find out
that some eagle eye haa ferreted out the
little rotten spot In us.
"Think, then, what a blow It Is when
we find out that we haven't fooled even
our nearest and dearest, and the one
whose affection we had supposed made
him or her blind to our faults.
"I tell you many a time It gives love a
death wound from which It never recov

husbands and wives should never tell
each other of their faults. It Is this: It
Is absolutely necessary for a husband to
bellevo that he Is a paragon In his wife's
eyes. It is absolutely necessary for a
force which is resisted by the living body. I wlte la neiieve mat she is the realization

Iear Miss Fairfax: I am a girl of
twenty and am very unhappy. This un
happlness is due to my brother's bad
reputation. 11 le considered to be very
Imd. My parents, the rest of the family
and myself are refined and well-behaved.
Whenever I go out in eompany the peo
plo usually bring up tho subject of my
brothers actions, which makes me feel
that If I were dead I would be much hap
pier than listening to the remarks that
people make In reference to him. I can't
talk to anybody about this, for I feel
very much ashamed. I ran t hurt my
parent by asking them what to do.
The people who criticise your brother
and ao aahame you are neither loyal
frtenda nor well-bred. Don't permit such
Individuals to grieve you. Tou must be
strong enough to make your own position
in the world, so that people will judge
you apart from your brother' demerit
and entirely on your own merit.
