THE END OF THE WORLD WAS LONG AGO. 'We allow ourselves to be too easily Inti midated by the noise of contemporary his tory. What wo experience ourselves seems bigger than the experience of all other times. 'We see It out of proportion and drop Into the way of saying It, 'There never was any thing like this before.' But we ought to refuse to be brow-beaten in this way,' says Robert E. Speer in the North American Stu dent. 'This is not the end of the world.' For the end of the world was long ago When tho ends of the world waxed free, When Rome was lost In a sea of slaves And the sun fell Into the sea. When Caesar's sun fell out of the sky And whoso hoorkoned right Could only hear the plunging Of the nations In the night When the ends of the earth came marching 1» To torch and cresset gleam And the roads of the world that led to Rome Were ailed with faces that moved like foam Like faces In a dream. , , —Public Opinion.

More than 500 meetings throughout Italy were held to commemorate the anniversary of the hanging of the soldier, Overdank, who paid the death penalty on December 24, 1882, for attempting to assassinate Emperor Fran cis Joseph of Austria.

All moved with rapid, shuffling steps, an or derly concourse which concealed the forces of disorder. By here and there, gome of the younger members broke at in tervals to permit of the exchange of coarse with the passers-by on the pavements. The whole throng seemed driven relentlessly ou toward a nameless goal which must break their hope when at last they reached it. .

Schmidt, of Philadelphia, insisted that beer should be con sidered a harmless beverage nnd sold ns such.. The saloon must lie stripped of screens, shutters, and fiery liquors, and made a place where mild family refreshment of nil sorts can be obtained under decent conditions.
