District court is in session at Pur-

Humanity is fighting one of the
cruelest and wickedest wars that
has ever been fought, but fortunate-
ly, as the case may be, humantiy
outside the fighting zone does not
j adequately grasp or conceive the
| magnitude of the conflict. They
i only see war in the concrete, but
the lens of the average metnal vis-
ion does not begin to grasp the har-
rowing details. We do not see the
long, weary marches, the sleepless
rights, the parched lips and the hun
gry mouths. We do 'not hear the
| roar of the cannon or the screech of
the shells. We cannot hear the
groans of the wounded or see the
blanched faces of. the windrows of
dead. We cannot smell the smoke
of powder nor scent the blood or
see the rivers turning crimson, or
the ground drenched with red. We
cannot sense the feeling of dread
of the fa'her who pictures a hap-
py home, surrounded by wife and
children, and that at any moment
tlie wife may be a widow and the
children orphans, objects of charity.
It is the most abhorent feeling that
can come over a self respecting and
provident husb nd. Our minds
are too pigmied to grasp all the
horrifying details and to most the
revolting details our reminds re-
main closed and we carry in our men
tal vison the cenral abstract idea
that a war is going on in Europe
and we do not allow the revolting
details to disturb our peaceful equin
amity. We go about in a sort of
semi-conscious way and keep our-1
selves happily oblivious to the fact I
that nearly the whole of the civil-
ized area of the earth is tinged with
Christian blood by the Christians
shed. The thought is to athorbent
to the feeling that one can hardly be
blamed for resorting to the more
solacing philosophy of keeping the
mind closed, as it were, to the r -
