The Americans are naturally a very
wasteful, extravagant people; and
long before our country entered into
this war, those who were giving
thought to the matter realized that
should the United States be forced
into the conflict, it would be neces necessary
sary necessary for its people to economize.
Consequently we are being taught
many lessons in temperance, self self-sacrifice
sacrifice self-sacrifice and self-denial. Whether or
not we are fully awake to these great
facts, or not, is the question. Each
individual family has learned to eat
plainer foods, with the result of bet better
ter better health; so as yet there have been
practically no hardships or privations
inflicted, for there has really been
more talk of conservation, than there
has been the actual performance. But
should this horrible war, which ap appalls
palls appalls the whole world, continue much
longer, we will be called upon to make
real sacrifices, and it is a matter of
humanity that we give ,of our abun abundance,
dance, abundance, that we relieve suffering. Our
obligation is so enormous, that it nec
essitates great effort on our part. At
the same time our people are learning
more and more to understand what
they are capable of doing, should our
country demand it. Already we are
learning many lessons in the way of
conservation; saving slowly, tho'
saving, and slow though it may be,
still, what great thing it will be for
our country, when this war is ended,
and our people will have individually
learned lesson. But, oh! at such a
dreadful cost! When we stop to think
of it, is there any sacrifice too great
for us to make? We will find as the
war goes on, with its increasing eco economic
nomic economic demands, that we will profit by
experience, if we lay down no set
rules, but deal with every situation
as it rises. Real conservation lies in
using the least amount necessary, and
we can obtain it, only as a voluntary
service in this country, a service that
should willingly and conscientiously
come from every man, woman and
child. This war has disrupted things
to such an extent, that everything is
uncertain, the hysterical howls of
economy sound more appalling to the
poor, who live from day to day, tho'
ever ready to do their bit, in order
that we may strengthen our cause,
which is simply a fight for great and
holy principles whose maintenance
involve the future of all humanity.'

a brother to the late Violet E. King,
who composed many beautiful hymns.
He moved to Florida many years ago
where he pursued his chosen calling,
Teaching to him was a divine call

worthy the best energy and thought
of his life. He began when but a boy
in his1 teens and continued to teach
until his failing health prevented,
having spent nearly forty years in
the work. He held many responsible
positions in Marion, Alachua, Levy
and Sumter counties and filled them
faithfully and well. He looked upon
every pupil under his care as an op

himself no pains in trying to make up
to them in any way he could whatever
he might find lacking in their natural
endowment or environment. He be believed
lieved believed that "there are no bad boys and
girls, only bad conditions," and set,
himself the task of bettering those
conditions. In the faithful discharge
of this task he wore himself out and
at the age of fifty-eight years was
called to scenes of higher activity.
It can truly be said of him that
those who knew him best loved him
best. His ideals were the highest
and he lived the most unselfish life of
any man the writer ever. knew. It
was my privilege to know him as a
teacher, having had three terms of
public school as well as three sum summer

direction and later as a next-door
neighbor and I do not recall a single
instance in all those years where
there was an opportunity for a kind
word of encouragement or a friendly
act that he did not give it freely and
gladly. I have before me. a clipping
which he sent me in ,& letter about
two years ago for my encouragement,
which tells so perfectly how he lived
that I give it here:

them we may have some gift; to them
we may scarry some message of com

may introduce the grace of God, which
brigeth salvation. Just seek the Spirit
of the Master and live life under the
inspiration and power of that Spirit,
and the humblest, most ignorant and
