RAM’S HORN BLASTS.
WE ARE MEN ONLY AS WE BECOME KEN.
By Prof, George B. Poster.
Almost every language contains the equiva

bon mot: “Every mdn is an omnibus in
which all his ancestors ane riding.”
More important still, the old church and
the new science both know a law of heredita-
tion. Man is hereditarily burdened with pre
disposition to disease and vice, they both as
sert. Now, the old church had a plan of escape from
this network of necessity. A divine decree of grace ar
ranged for the salvation of a part of the race from the
ruin of hereditary sin. But this sort of salvation does
not satisfy the moral sense of the modern man. That à
fixed number were arbitrarily selected to be saved from
the curse under which our common humanity groaned—
this conception has turned out to be offensive, to the
moral sense. No man wants that blessedness in which
he must helplessly gaze upon the damnation of his
brothers who were passed by in the decree of grace.
It is not whether we have inherited bane or blessing,
it is what we do with our heritage that counts in the
world of values. And we can convert our curse into a
blessing, our blessing into a curse, both into character.

AMERICA NO LONGER MERE SPECTATOR.
.By Sidney Brooks.
It is difficult for Europeans, who live in a
powder magazine and rarely have the fear
of an explosion out of their minds, to realize
the simplicity, spaciousness, and unhampered
self-absorption of American life. Foreign poli
tics is minimized by them at least as much
as It is exaggerated by Europeans. Ameri
cans can hardly be got to take them serious

conducted on either side upon the implication of force,
is of all experiences the one most: foreign to their nor

the Monroe doctrine you have pretty well, indicated the
sum of the average citizen’s interest in external affairs.
During several years in the United States I do not
recall a single well informed debate in Congress on the
foreign policy of the republic or a single member who
ever treated his constituents to an address on such a
topic. The operative opinion of the commonwealth still
desires to have as few dealings as possible with foreign
powers, still quotes and abides by Washington’s warn
ing against “entangling alliancés,” still, shrinks from
any course that threatens “complications,” still clings
