IS THIS A HEROIC AGEt
Quite bo; yea, a thousand, thousand
times more than in the days of Homer.
Loot ' at the thousands of missionaries
who, daring the China-Japanese war,
were at the front ministering to the
wounded and starving; look at mission
aries in Turkey now who are distribut
ing food to the homeless Armenians and
risking their lives to do deeds of charity
and kindness mo'ie the poorest and
most down-t'or.ia j,i-ii.le on earth.

dering Indians on the Pacific coast, to
make this country secure for the white
man to live in, were heroes, though they
never shed a drop of blood. The sol

preserve the government from rebellion
and prevented its going to pieces, are
heroes greater than Hector or Achilles,
famed only for slaughter, bat not for
The women who kept the homes and
wrote letters to encourage the loved ones
on the field of battle, or made clothes,
or scraped lint, or held'hoepital fairs, or
cared for the sick end wounded at
home they will be immortal in the
eyes of civilization that will yet be
written. The unselfish service of men
and Women in any walk in life make
tbern heroic. Here is" a little band of
womenholding together a little church
organization, .giving sociables, cooking
Thanksgiving dinners, giving an enter
tainment at which they work a week
and realize 15 cents, doing the unprofit
able, unshowy, menial tasks and drudg
ery of chuch work they are heroes and
will wear brighter haloes of glory than
some men who occasionally do a little
'hooraying for Jesus," and do up their
fellow man the rest of the time.
The man who helps raise a subscrip
tion for a woolen mill, so that some poor
family stands a better chance of making
a living and securing a home, is a greater
hero than he who does nothing but
write ".Honorable"' before his name, or
watches the newspapers until someone
else does. It is actions this world is
dying for not professions. The act
makes the man or woman a hero, the
un -elfish act, the act behind which a
motive of profit and gain does not stand
out bigger than the man himself.
Here is the San Francisco Chronicle
definition of a politician. A compari
son between the individual as defined
and as actually found, shows the differ
ence between the theoretical and the
"A politician is a man of education,
breeding, integrity and patriotism, who
consents to sacrifice a large portion of
his time and a larger portion of his indi
vidual effort for the advancement of the
principles of government in which he
believes, and which are best represented
by the party with which he is affiliated.
That there are eo-called politicians who
come far short of this standard is not to
be denied, but that fact in nowise inter
feres with the true definition of a poli
tician." Another calamity has overtaken

The leading article in the November
number of The Forum is" 'a discus
sion of the third-term question by Pro
fessor John Bach McMaster, the histo
rian, entitled "The Third-Term Tradi
tion." Mr. McMaster' cites the well
known historical precedents against a
presidential third term, and thinks
there is no reason to believe th it the old
time antipathy to a third term is one
whit less strong than it ever was. Mr.
McMaslers eays that while our practice
of choosing presidents, not because of
their fitness, but because of their avail
ability, is in theory all wrong, in prac-
tica no barm comes from it ; for under
our form of government we do not need
a president of extraordinary ability ; the
average man is good enough, and for
him two terms is-ample. What we
want, in Mr. McMaster's opinion, is a
etrong government of the people, by the
people; not a government of the people
by a strong man, and we ought not to
tolerate anything which has even the
semblance of heredity Mr. McMasters
counsels the advocates of a third term
for Mr. Cleveland to remember the doc
trine of the illustrious founder of their
party,-that "in no office can rotation be
In writing of an evening with Long
fellow and "How He Came to Write His
Best-Known Poems," Hezekiah Butter
worth in the December Ladies "Home
Journal says : "My poem entitled 'The
Bridge,' " said Longfellow,, in effect,
"was written in sorrow, which made me
feel for the loneliness- of others. I was
a widower at the time, and I used some
time to go over the bridge to Boston
evenings to meet friends, and to return
near' midnight by1- the same way; The
way was' eilent, save: here and there a
belated footstep. The sea rose or fell
among the wooden piers, and there was
a great furnsce on the Brighton bills
whose red light was' "reflected by the
waves. 'It was on such a late eolitary
walk that the spirit of the poem came
upon me. The bridge has been greatly
altered, but the place of it is the same."
