Perhaps just plcnsantness has not a
very heroic sound, but tho human
heart that, knowing Us own blttcrnoss,
can yet carry Itself cheerfully is not
without heroism. Indeed, If that hu
man heart docs no mora than hold
Its tongue nbout Its own aches and
pains It bus u certain moral value that
tho world cannot afford to lose. "Pleas
antness" does not sound ns well ns
self sacrifice or wisdom or spiritual
ity, but It may lncludo all these great
words. And certainly Just to start
one's husband out to bis work cheer
ily, to make tho hobbledehoy of a son

The Panama canal wns suggested
for the Isthmus of Panama ns early
as 1520 by Angel Saavedra, but for
a long tlmo all such suggestions met
with determined opposition from
Spain, which made It a capital offense
to seek or make known any improve
inent on the existing route from Porto
Bcllo to Panama. More recently
Louis Napoleon, when a prisoner at
Ham, spent much time considering
tho practicability of such a scheme
It wns not, however, until tho Cali
fornia gold rush of 18-10 that any nc
curato knowledgo of tho topographical
conditions was obtained, and even then
thirty inoro years elapsed beforo tho
actual Bite was chosen by an Inter

the latter dao organs were said to
have been Introduced into goino of the
