Clergymen In America are a privileged
class, and they ought to be a very happy
set of people. In Germany and France,
and In Italy also, they must render mili
tary service, Jut as laymen do. In
Germany It is the custom to do them a
favor by consigning them to the hosid
tals, where their professional skill will
com? Into play, but in France, on the
other hand, and In Italy, too, no favor
of any kind are shown them. They must
take their chances with the rest of the
world and go Into the ranks. We Amerl
cans ari a little less severe and a good
deal moro respectful. A great many
clergymen were In the civil war, and
some few were In the ranks as common
soldiers, but It was their option to oc
cupy that position. The truth Is we
treat everybody pretty well in thin coun
try, and It Is the best spot on the globe
to live in.
