Oh whr should the spirit of
morn's be proud?
Lik a last Hitting meteor,
a fast I'yhg cloud,
A flash of lightning, a break
of the warts,
le passes from lilt to his rest
in the grave.
Dealing its dole,
The Curfew Bell
Is beginning to toll.
Cover the embers.
And put out the light;
Toil comes with the morn,
And rest with the night
Dark grow the windows.
And quenched is the fire:
Sound fades into silence,
All footsteps retire.
No voice in the chambers,
No sound in the hall! '
Sleep and oblivion
Reign over all!
The book is completed,
And closed like the day;
And the hand that has
written it lavs it away.
Dim grows its fancies;
Forgotten they lie;
Like coals in the ashes;
They darken and die.
Song sinks into Bilence,
-The story is told,
The windows are darkened
.The hearth stone is cold
Darker and darker
The black shadows fall;
Sleep and oblivion
Reign over all.
A VERY OLD PROCESS
You cannot change human nat
ure, say critics of the league of
nations and the world court. True
enough but no change is necess
ary, nor is any contemplated
The league idea is not new, it is
almost as old as civilization itself
The ancient tribe was nothing
but a laague of individuals and
their families. The orgina) Btate
was but a collection of tribes
comparable to the present league
of nations. The idea for a thou
sands of years has been to make
the larger unit protect the smal
ler unit. It is workable scheme
and hat been used since time im
memorial. It was prompted by
the necessity for aelf defense.
There is nothing new about it.
Nor is there any unnatural id
eallsm about the league pf nation
It merely calls for the application
of a very old formula to present
day conditions. We are not trout)
led about wars between tribes or
families these days. Tne diffi
culty arises between nations aid
we must stop these wars if we
are to be safe. The last big war
cost ten millions of lives or more.
When Sheldon Ulrich and other
Pendleton boys were killed we
were all sorry. Those boys were
entitled to life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness. It wes
cruel to cut them down; they had
not done nothing to deserve such
fates. In the next big war no
one will be safe. God knows what
may happen, if we do not apply
effective measures for the pre
vention of war.
In fighting the league and the
world court the reconcilables
fight against the process where
by the civilization we have he
came possible. Without that pro
cess man would still be a barbar
ian as he is yet in some savage
portions of the earth.

If the court is linked up with the
league of nations so much the
better. The President is correct
if he aspires to have this country
get out of the baby class and
take its place once more among
the nations of the world.
