i: To be touched by human suffering is an evidence of refine
ment. To desire to relieve pain and want is to feel the moving
of the divine within. The primitive man did not experience
these sensations. The further we are removed from this prim
itive state the keener will become our interest in one another
and the more sincere will be our desire to relieve human want
! Nowhere in the world is there found more Human sympathy
than in bur own country and nowhere is there more generous
re'sponse. to every -call for relief of suffering and want. This
may be accounted for in part ;by the fact that our people are
in better financial condition but it is also fair to claim that
the individual development that has come' to us as a result of
tlje liberty and opportunities we here enjoy has made for a
higher type of manhood And womanhood in general than is
found, elsewhere, jfltrwpnldbe too much to claim that this is
universally true but-in' thtf majority of our people it is true:
'' The generous nthut' ilhat induces a large percentage
of-out 'people to contribiatfi' money and give, of their time to
Relieve want arid mXUpiiji.&pol confined, to the needy of our
o,wn country but in a, sen3e we are becoming what might be
termed, '.'the, ig brotherAVto all the .world. , Since bur generos
.teg. are becoming 80) large; and our human interest so wide
spread many are wondering if our far reaching interest cannot be
more wisely directed than it now- is and if more permanent
beneficial results Cannot be obtained than now result from our
efforts.'. ; j ; ..: ' .
' vj - No one at all . interested in human betterment would wish
to see in our people the slightest lessening of sympathy or of
desire to. relieve want and suffering, but, many are asking if the
time -Jhaatnot come When more' intelligent direction' should be
given to the bestowal of our generosities. Tc'the' unthinking,
the way to relieve human suffering seems to be to remove the
immediate manifestation, of it.. Under all circumstances it is
aesiraoie to relieve .;ine present neea. u one is jouna a
starving condition: he must be fed at once, or if one "is suffering
from disease that endangers his life that condition must be
relieved without delay, if. possible, if the assistance is to be of
any value." But wise human sympathy looks beyond the im
mediate want and distress to find the cause that produced these
conditions. If one ia sincerely interested in relieving human
want, and suffering he will seek to so direct his effort as to
j bring permanent as well as temporary" relief to those to whom'
he,:mmisters -To. accomplish this result hr must supplement
hia effort to relievo existing conditions by 'a : sttidy of the causes
that produced them in each particular case and once this cause
ia found his effort should be r directed toward removing this
cause "that produced these conditions. , If one is sincerely inter-
' ested in relieving human want and suffering he will seek to
; s6 'direct his effort as to bring permanent asrwell:as temporary
.relief ;to those to whom he ministers. To accdmpl.ish this result
he must gupplementj his effort to relieve existing conditions
i by a study of the. causes that produced them in each particular
case- and once this cause is found his effort should be directed
toward removing this cause. Otherwise thisfcause will continue
to produce similar distressing results and the need for relief
will be constantly recurring. To continue to give . to . relieve
human want without' any effort. being made to .remove the
cause the father to lose all feeling of responsibility for his
family and establish him in his evil ways. While the destitute
should not be allowed to suffer, the father should be compelled
to sense and discharge his full duty to his family, if the maxi
mum benefit is to be accomplished.
Everyone will agree to tne wisdom of such a course in this
instance, but it is not easy to apply the same rule in all eases.
It is not putting the matter too strongly to say that in a very
i - : dao want on1 cnfferiner theeo fnnfl it inns
iaBC uiajwv - . ; r . ? ... ..,.. . Irnrnuscles of the life current so
are produced by causes whien, it not removeo, win coojiuue to t .nnt
produce the same results indefinitely. Sickness is almost always
m-nAno ih. hv wTont? eatins? or improper living conditions. Indo
lence, with its accompanying want,-is generally the result Of
' disease or improper conduct on the part of the victim. Similarly
most suffering, in the world can 1e traced to a primary cause.
If men and women have , generous impulses and a' sincere desire
to be helpful to their less fortunate brothers and $isters, wisdom
would indicate that their efforts should be so Jdirected as to
accomplish the most far reaching and permanent results. Such
results can only be accomplished as every benevo)ence is direct
ed thoughtfully, wisely and prayerfully. Indeed observing and
sincerely sympathetic individuals are coming seriously to ques
tion the benefit resulting from thoughtless giving or any giving
that is not accompanied by intelligent investigation and wise
direction. .' It ' : '

Aunt t'anti y .was to be out iot the

had never been very fond of the
tiny, fluffy .white dag that was
Aunt Fanny's care and treasure,
and the more she saw of him, the
less she liked hlm.-
Ttaftles had a nasty, sharp little
bark and a peevish disposition.
He was always, running off and
hiding himself, and as he could
squeeze himself Into a small
space. Florence had more' than

-By Saturday evening she was
pretty" tired of; being nursemaid
for Raffles. She' at In the living
room reading and looking after
Raffles between paragraphs. Th
rest cf the family were up town.
Along came Sarah James, her
best 'friend, with the suggestion
that they, go to the picture fhow.
Florence was enthusiastic, unt-1
she remenV.ered Raffles and hr"

however. He began to stir about
restlessly, his small pink tongue
reaching out for Florence's hand,

bad little dog, she thought, after
all, and she gave him a little pat,
without taking hef eyes from the
screen, on which an animated

Raffles must have seen the di

for suddenly he stiffened and

ning to dabble In world affairs,
despite his insistence that the
earth Is flat. He says that there
are' several dangerous alliances
ahead. -The first one ;will be
formed by Germany, Russia and
Japan. Then there will be a con
bination of ten European nations
and. "after they have wrought
their damage, there will he a un

Naturally, this union of the En-

out of all other International alii

having a regular billboard war In
Zlon City. Vollva had a Metho

o'clock. Then the churches began
putting up bulletins attacking
one another until now the town
has broken out with a regular
rash of nine-sheet posters along
the highways. One set denounces
