The author o f the poem, "The I.uck
o f Kden Hall," waa Johann Ludwig
Uhlaud, a German poet of the Amt
half of the nineteenth centery, who
Amt put that romantic legend intu
i verve and luter It waa dressed In Eng-
| llah rhyme by Longfellow. Aa the
j story goes, the young lord o f the
; manor during a night of drunken rev-
: elry. demanded the drinking glaas
| called "the luck o f Eden Hall.” The
! butler “ heard the word» with pain,”
but brought the goblet which the tipsy
nobleman Banished. Instantly Aarnes
cracked the celling and the person*
surrounding the festal board becam e
dust. The straightforward American
poet explains at the heading of hla
translation that in spite of the tragic
ending of the poem the glass Is «til! In
existence, and so It Is today. It Is six
inches high, o f pale green glass, ex
quisitely enameled In blue and whit«.
Practical folk say that It probably
came originally from Spain, where It
was used as a chalice In communion
service, but the original story goes
that It was left at 8t. Outhbert's well

“ Jones was a drummer and his wife
during one o f hla trips gave birth to a
son and seemed In a pretty bad way In

her apron pocket and L>rgot all about
“ Well, by luck, the next day Jones
came home. His wife was then much
better. He saw hts son and departed
again well pleased.
"A couple of weeks passed when the
hired girl found the forgotten telegram
In her pocket and In a panic sent It off
to Jones, saying nothing to anybody
about her remissness. And that Is how

The Monroe Doctrine, as originally j
announced, served aa a shield. which'
the United State* held over Itself auJ
ever weaker stataa on tha American ‘
continents as a protection

encroachment. It waa and Is S'
national policy which protects North!
and South America and makes for
peace on these continents.
There Is real danger now, however,
that the Monroe Doctrine will oWj

hand that the real value of the policy
will ba lost
Senator Knox made the following-
amazing statement In hla recent
Hpeech In the Senate:—“ Its (T h e>
Monroe Doctrine) precise character,’
the extent, method and tlma of Its!
application, the means of compelling.

high and uncontrolled will and sov-j
-reign prerogative. We, the United.
States, cannot answer to any on t.

That sounds like Trietschka. It la)
an announcement of unlimited will,,
backed by arm«, to be exercised aa!
the United States alone determines,
her own requirements to be. Such!
an immoderate statement of the M on-'
roe Doctrine weakens and does nob
strengthen It. It Is an cxirem ai
statement of the doctrine, calculated!
to cause trouble and friction on thM
American continents. The Doctrine,
to ctated is not unlike the doctrinal
which Germany sought to apply to1
Senator Knox would refuse to sub-,
mlt to conciliation any dispute grow
ing out o f the application of tha
Monroe Doctrine, whether such dis

and an American state or between,

States backed by force is to prevail^
The other nations agree, in the Cov-(
snant of the League of Nations, toL
submit to conciliation all non-Juatici-|
»bla disputes; that is. those which?
grow out of questions of policy. Is
the United 8tates to demand that she
»lone be relieved from such obliga

her interests are involved, her abso
lute will shall prevail? How does this
differ from the German position In
The fact is that the Monroe D oc-i

of Senator Kncx and not the wise,
provision In the Covenant of the

certainly, it proclaims the woman.

their voices. If God gives us good
