OUR FLAG ON THE RHINE.
The Rhine is now virtually an American stream.
The "Watch on the Rhine" is sung only by American voi
ces, and those who constitute the "watch" are American
troops standing "fast and true as the old song informs
them, and in a sense that the author of it never dreamed
As a final proof of domination comes word that the
American flag now flies on the Rhine, as well as on its
banks and over the famous forts that guard it. A fleet
of nine river steamers has been taken over by the army
of occupation, and every one of them steams up and
down the river flying the Stars and Stripes.
There, indeed, is a spectacle for the natives to gaze
at. Old Glory in nowise dims the beauty of that lovely
stream, but it must be a strange apparation. Most of the
Germans thereabouts never saw the Staj Spangled Ban
ner before. The sight will do them good, . It is a valuable
element m their new, involuntary system of education.
It will benefit them exactly in proportion as they recall
the time when their government graciously announced
its willingness to let the United States send to Europe

rents of intrigue after intrigue, monarchial, Bolshevist,
financial, imperialistic, clerical, atheist."
And so it goes. The correspandent himself offers no
solution. He merely presents the picture, and sums up
the situation by saying that the present state of Europe
can be portrayed only by "the imagry of Apocalypse)"
which describes the end of all things.
European cifilization is not necessarily doomed, for
all that. Sanity and self-control still prevail west of the
Rhine. But the major part of Europe is plainly in such
state of chaos and helplessness as it .has not been since
the Middle Ages.
So far, then, as America had a duty to perform for
the salvation of Europe, our work is only half done. Per
haps the harder task lies ahead. We have to help Britain,
r ranee ana itaiy to bring order out of that welter.
The action of the officials, in closing Salem tight
again on account of the influenza epidemic does not seem
to be well advised. When other cities have learned that
such a course is worse than useless, because it is inconven
ient to everybody, we have the lid clamped on tight again
closing scnoois and all gathrings. Isolattion is the
only effective way of fighting an epidemic of this kind,
ana 11 a ngia quarantine had been enlorced from the
first the situation would have been different now. Closing
up the town is merely an effort to show that the officials
are active, and means nothing in the combatting of the
America is all right. We are comfortable, well-fed,

Peac has brought to many parts of Europe renewed
hope of happier times, but actual realization is yet far
off. Harold Williams, p.n American war correspondent,
gives an appalling picture of the situation:
"Europe is strewn with cannon, machine guns, bombs
and ammunition, all the leaving of a great war, and ev
eryone and none is master of these instruments of des
tination. "Frontiers are swaying. Agreements are made and
broken. There is scarcely a government from the Rhine
eastward that is not desperately beating the air today

"Nineteenth-century civilization has broken down.
"I do not mean merely that dilapidated trains crawl
dismally; that postal communication is hardly better than
in Napoleonic times; that famine and pestilence are creep
ing over Europe; but that there is a collapse of human,
moral energy, a revival of the primitive, barbaric in
sstincts, and the fierce endeavor to have one's own little
private will by force.

mea to understand and demonstrate.
Christian Science teaches that each man
must awaken, and discover in himself
the spiritual idea, or Christ, which is
bom, not of the blood, nor the will
of the flesh, nor of the will of man,
but of God." This idea of man is the
true man, the Christ man, the image
and likeness of God, our real selfhood.
The Christ, Truth, in human thought,
in the measure that it is gained and
maintained, is the same spiritual con
sciousnesa which enables one to cast
out error and to henl the sick. Then
it enn never be said that Christian
Science does not recognio Jesus, or that
they "do not pray to Christ." Oa.the
