A FEW years ago a yorng Canadian
achieved fame by running from
Marathon te Athens, and winning the
classic "Marathon Race." But not
every one knows why thst race is
classic and how and when it was tlrst
One September morning, in 490 B.
O., 11,000 heavily armed men lined the
crescent-shaped foothills of Mount I'en-
tellcns, overlooking the sea. Between
hills and sea lay the plain of Mara-
thon, six miles long and two In width.
This plain, to seaward, was alive with
a carnival of barbaric coior. one hun-
dred and ten thousand Persians were
encamped there, while the six miles
of beach and harbor were choked with
their warships. They were Invading
Greece, and the only obstacle to their
triumphant progress was that handful
of Athenians on the hills. Just one-
tenth the size of the Persian force.
Greece, In those days, was made up
of a number of small states, more or
less Independent of each other. Athens
was not only a city, but a state, and
represented the highest form of de-
mocracy the world had then known,
It was divided into ten communities
or districts, each ruled by the people,
and each furnishing a general for the
army. Each of these generals was in
full command for only one day at a
Persia was then the strongest des-
potic power on earth. Vast In wealth
and resources, it was ruled by an
emperor, Darius I, who retgned with
absolute sway. Athens, Sparta and
one or two other Greek Btates alone
refused him submission. Hence, ac-
cording to the imperial will, Athens
and the other rebels must be crushed.
A fleet of 1,200 ships, bearing 110,000
Persian fighting men had landed at
Marathon, less than thirty miles to the
northeast of the Athenian capital.
Thither, to oppose the invasion, the
ten Athenian generals hurried all the
men that could be mustered at such
short order. Mlitiades was Greece's
greatest soldier, and the other gen-
erals wisely surrendered their "days
ef command" to him.
The fate of the world hung In the
balance. Greece represented all that
Was highest In art, culture, govern-
ment and civilisation; Persia, all that
was barbaric, despotic, non-progres-
sive. A Persian victory must mean a
setback of centuMes In progress.
While the Persians waited, lastly
considering the_ easiest means to at-
tack their puny foe, they were dumb-
founded to see the 11,000 Greeks rush
at full speed down the slopes and Into
the plain. Spread out In a thin line,
so that they could not be outflanked,
and shouting their wild battle hymn,
the heavily armed Greeks—athletes
all—ran furiously across the mile of
level ground at the base of the moun-
tain and hurled themselves on their
unprepared enemies. Through the
looser, more lightly equipped Persian
lines the two Athenian wings bored
their way. The Greek center alone
gave back before superior numbers.
The wings then whirled and, reinforc-
ing the center, again tore through the
Persian ranks. The invaders, panic-
stricken, fled to their ships. And
there, In the confusion of embarking,
a second and fiercer flight waged. The
Persians got to sea at last, leaving
more than 6,000 dead and seven cap-
tured galleys In the victors' hands
The Greek loss was but 102.
Fearing lest the baffled foe might
sail to the harbor of Athens and take
the city unawares, Mlitiades sent a
swift runner to bear a warning and
the news of the victory. Thus was
the first "Marathon" race run. Thus,
too—against odds of ten to one—was
Ten years iHter Xerxes, son of Da-
rius, sought to wipe out his father's
disgrace by Invading Greece with an
array of more than a million men. As
the mighty host lay encamped before
him the Persian monarch wept aloud
at the thought that within a century
the entire million or more would be
dead. Eight hundred Persian war-
ships entered the Gulf of Salamls.
There they were attacked and routed
by a far smaller Greek squadron.
A mighty land force of Persians,
meantime, had invaded Greece, con-
quering, burning and slaying as they
advanced. The only road from south-
ern to northern Greece lay through a
narrow pass, Thermopylae by name,
between a steep mountain and a
marsh. Here the Spartan king, Leon-
Idas, gathered about 5,000 men from
Sparta and other Greek states to
block the invaders' way. For two
long days the Persians hurled their
vast legions against the dauntless
8,000. On the third day, through a
traitor, a secret road over the moun-
tain was revealed to them and over
this they marched an army to hem In
the Greeks on both sides. The de-
fenders, hearing of the approach of
this flanking party, for the most part
fled. But Leonldes. with TOO Spartans.

were in Jericho. His task was to eatl-

Incomes to the government He was a
very rich man and lived the life of
aa aristocrat of his time. Zaccheus
was an average man. There Is nothing
Unique about him. Were U not for the
incident of his climbing up a tree in
order to see Jesus pass Oy^ doubtless
we would never have heard of him.
The most Interesting thing about him
is his curiosity. He was an active,
energetic and ambitious man, unusual-
ly successful for a man of his times.
He will be known especially for his in
genuity and liiqulsltivenes*.
The occasion which attracts our at-
tention to him was the visit of Jesus
to Jericho. As usual, a large erowd of
people surrounded Jesus, and Zac-
cheus, because he was little of stature,
would not be able to see over the heads
of the people. He, therefore, resorted
to the Ingenious Idea of climbing up
in a tree and from that height would
find no difficulty In seeing Jesus as He
passed by Zuccheus was not prompted
to this act by any special loyalty ,to
Jesus, nor even by the spirit of rever-
ence. He was Impelled by the spirit
of curiosity. His only desire was to
The trait of curiosity is not uncom-
mon. It Is ope of the important char-
acteristics of our own age. This fact,
In part, explains the marvelous suc-
cess of the moving pictures of our own
time. The most Important and effec-
tive method of bringing Into conscious-
ness an object Is through the eye.
Hearing Is not so effective a channel
of Information as seeing. A person re-
members what he sees far better than
what he hears. An eye trained to see
the beautiful, lovely and good Is a
powerful factor in the development of
character. An eye accustomed to see
•only the evil and grotesque Is destruc-
tive to the development of character.
Human life Is like a mirror, In which
one sees reflected what lies deepest
in one's own experiences. The evil
without responds to JJhe evil within.
Good from within answers to the good
without. Byes are windows through
which there shines out what lies with-
in. What a person desires moat to
see explains the kind of disposition
and character one possesses. Zac-
c'hens was at heart essentially good,
as evidenced by the object of his curl-
oelty. He wanted to see Jesus about
whom everybody was speaking. His
curiosity brought him success. He
succeeded In his unique adventure.
Never having seen Jesus before, he
must have been greatly astonished and
perhaps a little bewildered when he
beard Jesus asking him If he would
permit Him to be his guest. "Today I
must abide at thy house." Zaccheus
lost no time in climbing down from the
tree. .He hastened to Jesus and as-
sured Him of a hearty welcome to his
home. This experience worked a
change in the standards of value by
which Zaccheus Judged the Important
things of life. Before this experience
with Jesus he doubtless was mucb con-
cerned with what the opinion of the
populace might be concerning Him and
His achievements. The standard of
success or failure was the opinion of
the crowd. If they applauded he waa
content. To obtain their favorable
Judgment was his chief concern. Suc-
cess or failure In his adventure waa
determined by the mind of public opin-
ion. The change which occurred in
his heart is evidenced by the effect the
visit of Jesus had in his life. This
experience also shlf'ed the seat of the
Judgment of values from public opin-
ion to the Ideal which he recognized in
Jesus and which he accepted as hla
own. Human experience has shown
that the former is evanescent and ar-
tificial ; that the latter Is real and
abiding, and brings to one the true
success and contentment In life.
