Woman and War
(By Olive Schreiner)
We have always borne part of the
weight of war, and the major part.
It is not that in primitive times we
suffered from the destruction of the
fields we tilled and the houses we
built; it is not that in a comparatively
insignificant manner, as nurses of the
wounded in modern times, or now
and again as warrior chief tainesses,
and leaders in primitive and other so societies,
cieties, societies, we have borne our part; nor
is it even because the spirit of reso resolution
lution resolution in its women, and their will willingness
ingness willingness to endure, has in all. ages
again and again largely determined
the fate of a race that goes to war,
that we demand our controlling right
where war is concerned. Our rela relation
tion relation to war is far more intimate, per personal,
sonal, personal, and Indissoluble than this. Men
have made boomerangs, bows, swords
or guns with which to destroy one an another;
other; another; we have made the men who de destroyed
stroyed destroyed and were destroyed! We have
in all ages produced, at an enormous
cost, the primal munition of war,
without which no other could exist.
There is no battlefield on earth, nor
ever has" been, howsoever covered
with slain, which it has not cost the
women of the race more in actual
bloodshed and anguish to supply, than
it has cost the men who lie there.
We pay the first cost on all human
life. v ''C:.:.v
There is perhaps, no woman who
could look down upon a battlefield cov covered
ered covered with slain but the thought would
rise in her, "So many mothers' sons!
So many young bodies brought into
the world to lie there! So vmany
months, of weariness and pain while
bones and muscles were shaped with
in! So man- hours of anguish andi
struggle that breath might be! So
many baby mouths drawing life at
women's breasts all this, that men
might lie with glazed eyeballs, and
swollen faces, and fixed, blue unclos unclosed
ed unclosed mouths and great limbs tossed!"
And we cry, "Without an inexorable
cause this must, not be!" No woman
who is a woman says of a human
body "it is nothing."
No tinseU of trumpets and flags
will ultimately seduce women into the
insanity of recklessly destroying life,
or gild the willful taking of life with
any other name than that of murder,
whether it be the slaughter of the
million' or of the one by one. And
this will be, not because with the
function of maternity necessarily
goes in the human creature a deeper
moral insight or a loftier type of so social
cial social instinct than that which accom
panies the paternal. Men have in all
ages led nobly as women in many
paths of, heroic virtue, and toward
the higher social sympathies; in cer certain
tain certain ages, being freer and more wide
ly culture'd, they have led further
Nor will women shrink from war
because they lack courage. Earth's
women of every generation bave fac
ed suffering and death with an equan
imity that no soldier on a battlefield
has ever surpassed and few have
preserve life, or land, or freedom,
rather than for aggrandizement and
power, women have in all ages known
how to bear an active part and die.
Nor will woman's influence militate
against war because in the ,future
woman will not be able physically to
bear her part in it. The smaller size
of her muscle, which might severely
have disadvantage her when war was
conducted with a battle-ax or sword
and hand to hand, would now little or
not at all affect her. If intent on
training for war, she might acquire
the skill for guiding a Maxim or for
shooting down a foe with a Lee-Met-ford
at four thousand yards as ably as
any male; and undoubtedly it has not
been only the peasant girl of France
who has carried latent and hid in her
person the gifts that would make
the great general. If our European
nations should continue in their pres present
ent present semi-civilized condition a few gen generations
erations generations more it is highly probable
that as financiers, as managers of
commissariat departments, as in inspectors
spectors inspectors of provisions and clothing
for the army, women may probably
play a very leading part,, and that
the nation which is 'the first to em employ
ploy employ women may be placed at a vast
advantage over its fellows in time of
war. It is not because of woman's
cowardice, in capacity, nor, above all,
because of her voice is fully and clear
ly heard in the severance of states:
it is because, on this one point, and on
this point alone, the knowledge of
woman, simply as woman, is superior
to that of man. She knows the his history
tory history of human flesh; she knows its
cost; he does not.
In a besieged city it might well hap
pen that men in the streets might
seize upon statues and marble earr earrings
ings earrings from public buildings and gal galleries
leries galleries and hurl them in to stop the
J breaches made in their ramparts by
the enemy, unconsideringly and mere merely
ly merely because they came first to hand,
not valuing them more than had they
been paving stones. One man, how however,
ever, however, could not do this the sculptor.
He who, though there might be no
work of his own chisel among them,
yet he knew what each of these
works of art had cost, knew by ex experience
perience experience the long years of struggle
and study and the infinitude of toil
which had gone to the shaping of even
one limb to the carving of even one
perfect outline, he could never so use
them without thought or care. In Instinctively
stinctively Instinctively he would seek to throw in
household goods, even gold and silver,
all the city held, before he sacrificed
its works of art!
Men's bodies are our women's work
of art. Given to us power to control
we will never carelessly throw them
in to fill up the gaps in ambitions
and greeds. The thought, would never
come to us as women, "Cast'irf men's
bodies; settle the thing so!" Arbi Arbitration
tration Arbitration and compensation would as
naturally occur to her as cheaper and
simpler methods of bridging. the gaps
in national relationships, as to the
sculptor it would occur to throw in
anything rather than statuary,
though he might be driven to that
at last. :-::Jj.h:! .V v.
This is one of those phases of hu human
man human life- not (very numerous, but
very important? toward which the
man as man, and 'the woman as wo
man, on the mere ground of their dif
ferent sexual function with regard to
reproduction, stand, and must stand,
at a somewhat differing angle.
The twenty thousand men prema
turely slain on a field of battle mean
to the women of their race twenty
thousand human creatures to be borne
within them for months, given ibirth
to in anguish, fed from their breasts
and reared with toil, if the numbers
of the tribe and the strength of the
nation are to be maintained. In na
tions continually at war, incessant
unbroken child bearing is by war im
posed on all women if the state is to
survive ; and whenever war occurs, if
numbers are to be maintained, there
must be an increased child bearing
and rearing. This throws upon wo woman
man woman as woman a war tax compared
with which all that the male expends
in military preparation is compara
The reltions of the female toward
the production of human life influence

animal and all life. "It is a fine day,
let us go out, and kill something I"

cruelly, the life of a hated rival or an

For the vast bulk of humanity,
probably for. generations to come, the
instinctive antagonism of the human
child-bearer to reckless destruction
of that which she has at so much

bit. rarebit. i I
Now comes a friend to ua all, a Mr.
C. W. Wimpy, from the great state
of Georgia, who is so enraptured
wi th Ocala that he hands to it, thru
the medium of our esteemed contem contem-po
po contem-po rary the Banner a 1 beautiful po em,
commencing with' the following verse:
Ocala angels named, her,
And they took the light
Of the laughing stars, and framed her
In a suite of white; T
And they, made her hair of gloomy
Midnight, and her; eyes of glowing
Moonshine, and they brought her, to
'me t r :
In' the silent night.
Very -pretty. True that the muse
limps somewhat in the first line, as
tho she had stumped her toe, or cast
it for a four-syllable name. 7 If Fate
had only named our town Tuskawilla
or Tuscaloosa or Tsalapopka it would
have fitted like a glove.
In a solemn night ; of summer,.
When my heart of gloom ..'
Blossomed up to meet the corner
Like a rose .in bloom;
.All forebodings that distressed me,
I forgot as joy caressed me,
Living joy that caught and pressed me
In the arms of doom
Only spake the little lisper,
In the angel s tongue. f
Yet I, listenings heard; her whisper:
Songs are only sung
Here below, that they may grieve you,
Tales are told you to deceive you,
So must Ocala leave you
While her, love is young.
Then God smiled, and it was morning,
Matchless and supreme.
Heaven's glory seemed adorning
Earth with its esteem.
Every heart but mine seemed gifted
With the voice of prayer, and lifted
Where my Ocala drifted r
v From me like a dream
As we meander along thru this
classic effort, and pause doubtfully
between sad smiles and joyful tears,
we wonder only at one thing. Why
should Ocala leave us? Why can't
she stay on the job? Or why should
she leave Mr. Wimpy, or why should
Mr. Wimpy leave Ocala'?, Ocala loves
any man who can put the simoleons
up for his board bill.
We woijld like to t have this beau
tiful poevi : incorporated into and
adopted as "The Song of Ocala" but
for three things. One is, the afore aforesaid
said aforesaid limp in the rhythm makes it read
like it might have been written for
something else. Another is, -that 'a
person in a far country reading it
two or three years from now ; might
think that Ocala was no longer here
had gone away, as foreshadowed
in the poem; therefore it would be no
use for him to seek this charming -"'.locality.
Such an idea would go far to
ward defeating the publicity cam
paign of the Board of Trade.
Another objection is, that about a
third of a century ago,: in a previous
incarnation probably,: the muse visit visited
ed visited a poet, or,- to be more exact, a
poetess, and inspired her to write a
poem so similar that if Ocala were to
adopt this dream child of Mr. Wimpy'
brain, she might be accused of kid
napping. This poet lady had either

should be the big word in the vocabu vocabulary
lary vocabulary of every beginner. There is no
such thing as 'pull' applied to bodies.
The engine never pulls a trains but
"pushes it. The coupling of the engine
always extends behind that of the car
following and does actually shove it
forward." But the pessimist will not
be silenced. He only shifts to "Who
back of him?" Pittsburgh Sun.
The art or exercise of dancing can
be traced back to the early Egyptians,
who ascribe that invention to their god
Thoth. Beyond a doubt dancing Is
much older than history. It began in
connection with religious 'rites end
was performed In honor ,of the deities
that were worshiped.

Helping the Poet.
Longfellow, the great poet, was not
ed for his fondness for children, and
this extended to all little folks, wheth
er of bis family or not. There was one
little boy of whom he was very fond
and who came often to see him.; One
day the child looked earnestly at the
long row of books In the library and
at length x asked. "Have yon 'Jack
the Giant Killer? V Longfellow was
obliged to confess that his great library
did not contain that venerated volume.
The little fellow looked very sorry and
presently slipped down from the poet's
knee and went away. But the next
morning Longfellow saw him coming
up the walk with something tightly
clasped In his little fists. The child
had brought 2 cents with which Long Longfellow
fellow Longfellow was. to buy a "Jack the Giant
Killer" of his own. V :

in 1810 the emperor remarked a lady
wearing jewels of such magnificence
that he ipquired how her husband
made his money. "He Is a tobacco
merchant," was the reply, which led
him to seek further Information as to
such a profitable business. Before the
year expired Napoleon Issued a decree
restricting the sale and manufacture
of tobacco exclusively to the state. It
has remained a monopoly ever since
and for many years past has' brought
