It Ih not easy to wear n smile when troubles hover near, but by continued effort In the right spirit. It rw be done, i Many of our annoying perplexities nro of our own making, consequently tbey can be avoided by turning from them when they first knock at the door of our hearts for admission, and abutting the door In their fticcs. We are Inclined to brood over some fancied wrong until It becomes a formidable ghostly thing that haunts our life from day to day. We are prone to forget that we are rational beings possessed of spiritual powers capable of turning night Into day by a grain or two of faith, which In our moments of despondency we frequent ly overlook, or cast aside In quest of n balm of our own. We art not willing to accept the juicrcd promises given to us by the iMaster of Men, simply because we prefer the slmdows or doubt rather (than the glorious sunlight or endur ing trulli. so we continue to stumble Hind fall In the darkness of our crea Itlon and blame the Fates for our mis ierable plight. Human vanity and an exalted Idea of our blood-and-flo.sh prowess are In Imofit cases responsible for the sor rows, tears and disappointments that luHiially beset us. Wo make pitiable Jobs of our work Itmt we stubbornly refuse to change our methods even though they bring jus nothing but regret and pain. And generally we rest fairly con tent with (Mir failures, .for we keep (multiplying them and courtln,; their company when we know In our hearts 1C that we should pursue a contrary course. We wish to be assured of brighter days, but in our blind eagerness to find them, we deliberately turn our bucks upon the paths that take to the hills anil choose the rougher ronds thnt carry us down to the dark valleys. if we would not wnsto our years In Ignorance, we must lift our eyes up to the light of Wisdom, plnce our hands confidently In her nlways friend ly palm and be content to be guided by her kindly counsel and Illuminat ing smile, for there Is no other way by which we enn hope to overcome Impeding obstacles and reach the heights.

Doubtless you have Bomctlmes wuljced along a path In tho woods be hind a companion and been smitten smartly In the face by a branch ,ho released as ho passed. If you didn't 'loso your temper you were hardly human. Learn to avoid sudden anger, which Is very different from the slow de liberate kind which you ought to feel in the face of u great wrong or eyll.
