THIS TO HIS CREDIT.
Whatever we may think about John 0. Rockefeller
and the ways in which he acquired his immense wealth,
there are few who will not endorse the use which he is
making of a part of it in sending prompt and generous
succor to the Belgians.
It is easy to say that he is only doing what he ought
to do, and that he ought really to do a great deal more
both at home and abroad. This may be very true; but how
many of his carping critics do even a part of what they
could and should do?
At the best, or worst, Rockefeller has no monopoly on
giving in this great human cause. Every one is free to
compete with him in this to the full limit of one's gener
osity and means. For once, it cannot be said he is crowd
ing anybody out.
What concerns us just now is that Rockefeller is do
ing the right thing for once, anyhow, and in feeding the
'starving and clothing the naked sets an example that his
severest critics cannot do better than follow.
Nobody need worry about whether it is a "grandstand
play" for effect or the result of genuine sympathy and a
recognition of personal obligation. Nobody need take
Rockefeller's motives as his 'own in giving. Each may give
from his own motive.
With a population greater than the city of New York
suffering from hunger and exposure and hopelessness,
there cannot be too many helpers, nor too many motives.
Rockefeller's motive is probably no more mixed than
those of the rest of us when we perform a good action.
His "tainted" dollars will cany nothing but healing to his
beneficiaries. Standard Oil as an angel of mercy will not
be less efficacious than one with whiter wings.
A STORY OF MAN'S INGRATITUDE.
Brete Harte in one of his poems describes the love af-
H ' n , i i i i m . . 1 i r
lairs oi a cnemist wno aeviseu a garment miiaiea wun
bvdroeen gas for his best girl so she could dance lightly.
The result was that, slipping from the arms of her part
ner, she sailed off into the skies, and the poet suggests
that it is well to remember the maxim this lesson may
teach that genius may lift its love out of its reach."
A pitiful story pomes from Seattle of Hannah Silver
berg, who is suing her husband for divorce. They were
playmates in Finland and later worked side by side in a
rubber factory at Woonsocket, Rhode Island. Naturally
they married. He was ambitious and she was, woman
like, loyal. He went to college while she toiled in the fac
tory to pay his expenses, and when her father died sent
him her little inheritance to pay his schooling. He be
came a doctor; she remained a toiling, working, loving,
self-sacnf icing woman. 1 hen came the end.
He wrote her a letter, not perhaps cruel from his view
point, Imtfrom hers bitter as death, cruel as the grave
After all her sacrifice, he wrote:
"It is necessary that a woman should be more enmpe
tent than simply to cook and keep house. That suits a
laborer very well, but an educated person craves for one
who can do more than that, such as being posted in up-to-date
life and in a general knowledge of higher ideals "
From this viewpoint, Silverberg was, in a sense, cor
rect, but how much more human it would have been to
have given her a chance to have helped her to come up
to his standard, even- as she had helped him. He threw
down the ladder by which he had climbed, and she, poor
woman, lifted her love out of her reach.
Truly, it is a cruel world.

. .... . V
oi the age is: 'How is a Mexican war
Down in Mexico this is well understood. In the. earlier
days they were financed by mining men who wanted
mining concessions from the government and hence tried
to make a government that would grant them. The min
ers are small fry these days, as Rockefeller and the Eng
lish oil trust have so far outbid them that they do not
count. If a few of these big fellows could be punished
for their unholy acts, there might be peace in Mexico.
The dispatches Monday tell of an English aviator
dropping a bomb into a small village and killing fourteen
of its people. What better is he than any other cold-blooded
assassin? It is bad enough for armed men to meet in
desperate battle and destroy each other, but the cowardly
assassins who from the skies drop deadly bombs into
peaceful villages should be hanged as soon as caught.
Ihere should be no hesitation in administering the pun
ishment when the offense is proven, and the nation,' no
matter which one, that permits this kind of warfare de
serves the condemnation and contempt of all humanity.
All the warring nations alike have been guilty of similar
outrages against civilization.

no doubt, make interesting reading. How it would be
expressed in Russian is, of course, beyond our knowledge,
but in classical modern English a description of the affair
could perhaps be made in the brief sentence : "They won't
