King James' Complacent Estimate of
Royal Dignity as Expressed
In Speech.
The state of monarchy Is the su-
premest thing on earth; for kings are
not only God's lieutenants upon earth,
and sit upon God's throne, but even bjr
God himself they are called gods.
There be three principal similitudes
that illustrate the state of monarchy.
One taken out of the word of God and
the other two taken out of the grounds
of policy and philosophy.
In the Scriptures kings are called
gods and so their power Is after a cer­
tain relation compared to the divine
power. Kings are also compared to
the fathers of families; for a king Is
truly perens patriae, the politic fa­
ther of hls people. And lastly kings
are compared to the head of this mi­
crocosm of the body of man.
Kings are justly called gods, for
that they exercise a manner of re­
semblance of divine power upon
earth; for If you will consider the at­
tributes to God. you shall see how
they agree In the person of a king.
God hath power to create or destroy,
make or unmake at hls pleasure, to
give life or send death, to Judge all
and to be Judged nor accountable to
none, to raise low things and to make
high things low at hls pleasure, and to
God are both soul and body due.
And the like power have kings; they
make and unmake their s ¡bject, they
have power of raising and casting
down, of life and death. Judges over
all their subjects and In all causes
and yet accountable to nono but God
only. They have power to exalt low
things and abase high things, and
make of their subjects like men at
the chess— a pawn to take a bishop or
a knight—and to cry up or down any
of their subjects, as they do their
money. And to the king Is due both
the affection of the soul and the serv­
ice of tho body of hls subjects.—From
a Speech of James I. Before Parlla*
ment In 1619
Some Simple Directions for Treating
Cavities Which Are
Still Small.
Many of the so-called tree doctors,
xs well as the people who employ
them, have become so elated over the
Idea of tree surgery that they find
iorne cause for treating almost every
and any tree, regardless of Its neces­
sities or the results of such treatment,
or whether It Is worth while to spend
either time or money upon them.
A word of caution Is therefore not
out of place. If you feel that your
trees need attention, look Into tbs
matter of tree doctoring, so that you
may know something about It, and then
call upon a responsible man with a
good reputation to do your work.
When the tree has been neglected
and cavities have formed In the trunk
of the tree, something should be dons
to slop the Increase of the opening, for,
after It has become so large as to en­
circle the greater portion of the tree,
or where the entire center has been
destroyed, It Is not worth the time and
money It takes to properly treat these
In cases where the tree can
still be treated the cavLy should be
scraped and cleaned of.all dead wood,
then give the cavity a thorough wash­
ing or spraying with a solution of cop­
per sulphate. This solution, applied
to all parts of the cavity, will kill all
the remaining rot spores.
Now the
cavity Is ready to be filled with a ce­
ment mixture, using one part of ce­
ment to three parts of clean, sharp
sand. This Is packed Into the cavity,
filling It to one Inch of the finished
surface, and then apply a covering of
ono part cement to one part sand.
This Is put on eo as to bring the
filling to a smooth surface, making It
conform to the contour of the tree
trunk. A coat of coal tar may be ap­
plied to discolor the cement and aid
In making the filling water tight
