that he hasn't been forgottea. Mean
while Frederick Palmer, one of the
American war correspondents, has
just paid him a notable tribute. Un
der the title. "John J. Pershing
Plower." Palmer has contributed to
Collier's an article which is a splen
did appreciation of a man who "has
won such fame aa no other living
American of our tiir.e, except Wood
row Wilson, enjoys."
.Strange, as it may seem, Freder
ick Palmer is right when he says
that, though General Pershing led
the greatest army ever under our
flag, in the greatest of ware, yet
the public is hardly familiar with'
his personality. One reason for that
is that he has always shunned pub
licity. Palmer remarks that early
in the war Washington was swarm

after the interests of great adminis
trators and others ta make sure the
public did not overlook their serv

. The heaven that lies about os in our infancy is Motherhood, and
no matter how exalted or how depraved we may become we are
always attended by the grace of a mother 's love. Nor does hzt
visiojs splendid ever fade into the light of common day. Every
great man has glorified a great mother.
In the tragedy of Calvary it is beautiful to see the Master looking
down upon His mother in tenderest solicitude, telling her to com
fort His best-beloved disciple, and himi to comfort her.
; On this day. let each ofr us honor the hallowed memory of his
mother,1 wearing in token 'thereof the I j floral symbol of purity. Of
other blessings re may have had great stores, but of .that ;most
precious! Influence there was but One.!
