I would not enter on my list of friends,
Though  graced with polished manners and fine sense,
Yet wanting sensibility, the man
Who  needlessly sets foot upon a worm.- COWPER.

  This doctrine of kings and rulers has cost in
Europe  alone the lives of millions of human
beings and horses, billions of dollars in money
wrung mostly from the labors of the poor, and
an amount   of human   and animal  suffering
which it would be impossible to tell.
  It is as false and unchristian to ask nations
to get ready to kill each other as it would be
to ask each man  in any town or village to get
ready to kill his neighbors.

  Russia and Japan have been  getting ready
to kill each other and are now doing it. In
Russia poor men are forced by military draft
to leave their homes, wives and children and
travel thousands of miles to kill and be killed
by other men who  have never harmed  them.
And all this when the whole matter could have
been  peacefully and rightly settled without
the loss of a single human or animal life.
  What the world wants now is to change this
whole murderous  business by substituting In

time of peace prepare for peace, and begin
carrying into all our schools and homes a
Christian education which shall hasten the
coming of a millennium of peace on earth,
and good-will, not only to men, but also to
all God's lower creatures that depend upon
our mercy.
  Chile and Argentina have begun the good
work  by erecting on their boundary line,
fourteen thousand feet above the level of
the sea, a statue of Christ, over sixty feet
high, on which is inscribed:
   Sooner shall these mountains crumble
into dust than  Argentines and  Chileans
break the peace to which they have pledged
themselves at  the feet of Christ the Re-
deemer.              GEo. T. ANGELL.

     A  $600,000,000 NAVY NEEDED.
  We  find in the Boston Evening Transcript
of April 28th that Rear-Admiral George W.
Melville of the United States Navy, retired,
in an address before the Geographical So-
ciety of Philadelphia, says that our present
navy, costing about two hundred millions of
dollars, is amply sufficient to protect our
home  coasts, but to protect the Philippines
and foreign possessior will require a navy
costing six hundred minions of dollars; that
the time  may come  when  we  may  find it
difficult to keep these islands thirteen thou-
sand miles away, but  it would be an easy
thing to retire gracefully now.
  It is a terrible pity that against the op-
position of both President McKinley  and
Secretary of State Sherman we should have
been plunged into that unnecessary and un-
justifiable war with Spain which, saying
nothing of the deaths and sufferings of hu-
man  beings and horses that it has caused,
has already cost us such vast sums of money.
To this, if Rear-Admiral Melville is correct,
we  must, for the protection of these Philip-
pine islands, thirteen thousand miles away,
not only build great fortifications but add
