The fluffy-nothings of life go down to ashes
with the fires and tortures of life, but the
rare persons survive : : : : :
By ADELAIDE KENNERLY.
A GIANT sassafras near Keswick. Va,, some years ago, had a hollow
trunk, with its top broken off and it seemed ready to die. Some
body started a fire in it. The fire was stopped with difficulty and it
was tiiought that the tree was killed.
Striking example of humanity as it is no different. Let a person be
apparently empty Vf that which other people want, and someone will try
to destroy. The man or woman who missteps or allows one foot to start
on the downward jjath may be sure of a push a fire within or around to
But this old sassafras tree was an exception. It did riot die after the
fire. On the contrary the torture it endured only burned out the parasites
that were eating the heart from the tree.
Strong Old Tree.
' It was a strong old tree. It had endurance something noble way down
deep under the surface which willed that it should not only live but sur
vive the torture with triumphant heart.
After the fire the old trunk with its clean "within" branched out like
the springtime and now stands crowned with strong, healthy, boughs, add
ing beauty to the scenery and giving of its pure self to the world.
So do some souls tower above the weaklings. Souls have been puri
fied by years of suffering;by white hot fires of the brain which burned to
ashes all that was vile or impure in thoughts.
Fluffy-Nothings Go Under. v
The fluffy-nothings of life go down to ashes with the fire, the pains,
the repulsions and the tortures of life, but the rare persons survive them
and stand as symbols of great spirits. They show what can be withstood.
They are as the sun which passes through pollution and comes out clean.
There is none so worthy as one who passes through the worst 'and
, comes out the best.

elsewhere. War questions will no
doubt be discussed at the affair given

be on war topics, for the guests will

TWO WOMEN AT HALIFAX.
Halifax, Dec. 13. Belated credit
was given today to two young
women for their conduct following
the explosion. When the explosion
came the naval hospital had only
two nurses on duty, Sister Alice
Boutin and her assistant. Although
the roof crashed in and the building
was damaged, not a patient was
lost. In addition to attending these
patients, many injured from out
side were brought in. With a frac
tured rib and a dislocated should
er, Sister Boutin remained on duty
until late in the evening, when she
Miss Jean Groves, operator at
the private branch telephone ex
change at the dock yards, remained
at her post and sent out calls for
doctors, fire department and other
aid until ordered out of the build
ing, which was badly damaged.
Within : hour she was at another
exchange reporting for duty.
"And it's really just the
thing to do to help win the
war. Men must have things
to wear and lf they get some

knick-knack, that won't be

Red -Cross Funds in the War.
When the war fund drive was con
ducted, last June, the American peo
ple subscribed a little over $100,000,
000 for the purposes of the Red Cross.
It was an act absolutely without pre
cedent. The world had looked upon
the United States as great, powerful
nation, but as inclined to be mer
cenary and Jelfish. Our stupendous
liDeny loans, pians ior great armies
and navies, and great munition out
puts, merely confirmed the view the
outside world hd had of the great
ness and Bower of America. But that
we should subscribe a fund of $100,
000,000 at the very outset of the war
for the relief of humanity, gave the
world an entirely new vision of the
essential meaning of American life
Up to date approximately $85,000,
000 in cash ha been collected. Of this
amount a little over $40,000,000 has
been appropriated. The demands,
however, in Europe are increasing
with great rapidity! And the $100,
000,000 fund cannot last on the pres
ent basis of expenditure much be
yond the spring.
The American Red Cross is the
greatest humanitarian agency in the
history of the world. The war council,
appointed by President Wilson, and
headed by Henry F. Davison, is con

soldiers and sailors whenever and
wherever that care may be needed.
Second, to the shortening of the war
by relieving the suffering and bolst
ering up the courage and morale of
the civilian populations as well as
the armies of our allies.
Third, through carrying a message
of relief and mercy, as aft expression
of the sacrifice and sympathy of the
American people, to let our allies

Funds Subject of Comment
Duplication of efforts in raising the
Young Men's and Young Women's
Christian association war funds is, th
subject of comment ainemg local club
and church women as well as work
ers in the campaign, and local busi
ness men who are solicited for funds.
The Young Men's Christian associa
tion fund was oversubscribed. The

Women's Christian association cam
paigns were carried on with splendid
results in Pittsburgh, Kansas City,
Denver, Minneapolis and Des Moines.
Miss Etta Pickering, local Young
Women's Christian association sec
retary, explains that the merger cam
paigns were launched in the cities
which held their drives fast of all.
Early in the campaign national lead
ers did not deem it wise to combine
the two drives for funds. Omaha
came in the early group.
More than $2,500,000 of the $4,000,
000 fund desired has been raised.
The Omaha campaign is, for $25,000
for the hostess house fund and $10,
000 for the annual budget.
Nebraska Women to Talk
On Suffrage Amendment
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, Dec. 13. (Special
Telegram.) Senator Norris, and Rep
resentatives Kinkaid, Sloan and Lo
beck, with Representative Shallen
berger represented by Mrs. Shallen
berger, met this morning in the office
of Senator Norris to hear a number
of Nebraska women who are in
Washington attending the suffrage
convention present their views on be
half of constitutional amendment
granting suffrage to women.
The ladies in the Nebraska delega
tion were: Mrs. W. E. Barkley of
Lincoln; Mrs. W. J. Bryan, "Mrs.
Sumney of Omaha, Mrs. Morris, Mrs.
Charles H. Dietrich of Hastings. All
presented their views. Mrs. Shallen
berger was outspoken in her opposi
tion to picketing. It is understood
that representatives in congress pres
ent at the hearing declared them
selves in favor of the amendment
with the exception of Mr. Lobcck,
who was noncommittal.
Salonica, in the days when St.
Paul addressed his Epistles to the
Thessalonians, was not modern, for
it was built about 315 B. C. on the
site of an older city called Therme,
and it was named by its founder after
his wife, a sister of Alexander the
Great, It has always been a place of
importance, it is the chief harbor
of Macedonia, and was a point on the
ancient highway from Rome to the
east. With a few new buildings, like
the old mosque, which has been in
turn a temple f Venus and j Chris
tian church, it has always been a col
lection of houses largely of wood and.
therefore, highly inflammable in the
