Man-or Animal A put rabbit in ChieaK" tell into the hands of the police the other day because it bit three children. 'The cop- pur.s prepared to put it to death; but just in the nick of lime they received an indignant telegram from some anti- cruelty society in Iowa, so the execn- .licin was deferred until the bunny, could be tested for rabies. A Ihonyhtfijl man is apt In wonder -lij.'lilly at the y.eal which people can put into minor causes at a time when stupendous events are taking place. Om'lty lo animals—provided lhat the killing of a rabbit comes under thai heading—is a .sad tiring lo contemplate, to be sure; but cruelty to human beings has Jiol exactly, disappeared from this weary and sin-stained earth, and one would suppose thai il itiij;lit make a better goal for the ell'orts of the hu- njanitariiins. Honor-at Twenty Paces Tlif ancieiii and hoiinraliie custom of duelling is slill oli.-erval in France; and one reason (hat a civiliml people like the French put up with it might be that the people who take part in duels are such atrocious marksmen. Roger lie Tour, leader, fought a duel the other day with Deputy Jean Mistier, former cabinet member. They met on a ride range near (.'arcassone, lireil two shots apiece at a distance of 20 puces—and missed each other completely. • ^lonor, one gathers, was satisfied; and Ihe men left the field unscathed. How even the roltenest shot could miss a target the 'size of a human body—and miss it twice—at 20 paces is almost beyond comprehension. That Iwo miserable marksmen could be found at one lime and place is even more incomprehensible. But it's probably all for the best. Given such marksmen, the custom of duelling has everything to recommend it, and not a single observable drawback.

Tlic bit' pioneers were backed by a morality that was ijemihie, directly or Indirectly upheld by men of sincerity and conviction. Vast endowments shaped educational policies, perhaps without personal intent, but naturally. Th? same applies to "good Mill" in the relations between ailvrr- liECi-s and publishers.

The law of th? survival cf tiic fittest in the war for .success, In which many must be sacrificed, found many a reputable man following his conscience and working for ids wife and children. But, a.s the process of monopoly reaches Its apex the morel issuV changes: one is forced to "cheese". Allegiance musl be dcniilleh- purchased. Education must, be .'managed. News becomes a strict matter of policy. Censorship jm:M uphold Ihe unjust order, and when one concurs consciously hj is forced to think of himself 'as a schemer or a henchman. To the people, who must be acle i to think of themselves as "moral", i this situation becomes intolerable. Corruption is on its way out.
