LIGHTFOOT the Deer traveled
on through the Green Forest
straight ahead In the direction from
vhlch the Merry Little Breezes
were blowing. Every few steps he
would raise his delicate nose and
test all the scents thnt the Merry
Little Breezes were bringing. As
long as he kept the Merrj Little
Breezes blowing In his face he
could be sure whether or not there
was danger ahead of him. You see,
the Merry Little Breezes delight In
carrying all sorts of scents, and

very, very faint lie can catch them
and tell Just whnt they are.
Llghtfoot uses his nose very much
as you and I use our eyes. It tells
hlin the things he wnnts to know.
He knew that lleddy Fox had been
along ahead of him although he
didn’t get so much as a glimpse
of Reddy’s red coat. Once he caught
just the faintest of scents which
caused him to stop abruptly und
test the air more carefully tlinn
ever. It was the scent of Buster
Bear. It was so very faint that
Llghtfoot knew Buster was not near,
ao he went ahead again, but even
more carefully than before. After a
little he couldn't smell Buster at
all so he knew then that Buster
bad simply passed that way going
to some other part of the Green
So Llghtfoot knew that he had
nothing to fear In that direction so
long as the Merry Little Breezes
brought him none of the dreaded
man-scent, und he knew that he
could trust the Merry Little Breezes
to bring him that scent If there
should be a man anywhere In that
direction. The Merry Little Breezes
are Ligbtfoot's best friends. But
Llghtfoot didn't want to keep going
In that direction all day. It would
take him far away from that part
of the Green Forest with which he
was familiar anu which he called
home. It might In time take him
out of the Green Forest, and that
wouldn't do at all. So after a while
Llghtfoot became uncertain. He
didn't know just what to do. You
see, he conldn't tell whether or not
ttat hunter with the terrible gun
was still following him.
Kvery once In a while he would
stop In a thicket of young trees or
behind a tangle of fallen trees up
rooted by the wind. There he would
stand facing the direction from
which he had come and watch and
listen for Borne sign that the hunt
er was still following. Hut after
a few minutes of this he would
grow uneasy and then bound away
In the direction from which the
Merry Little Breezes were blowing
so as to be sure of Dot running
‘‘If only I could know If that hunt
er Is still following I would know
better what to do," thought Light
foot. 'Tvs got to find out."

THE MASTER TOUCH
THE chemist estimates the ma
terial worth of man about 98
cents—possibly as low as 68 cents
since the depression. Some one has
said man has enough iron in him
to make a few nails, lead enough
for a few pencil points1 and cal
cium perhaps to whitewash a fence.
Mai\ who has flown higher than the
clouds, sailed under the sea and
called light from Arcturus to light
the Century of Progress is worth
in material Inventory but 98 cents!
It Is said the English artist Tur
ner when escorting a lady visitor
through his studio, paused before
one of his inimitable seascapes,
’which he had recently finished, to
catch her first words of praise. He
was surprised to have her ask in
differently: "How much Is that
worth?” “A thousand dollars," he
said. “What, a thousand dollars
for just paint and canvas?” she ex
claimed. "If you wish Just paint
and canvas, madame," Turner re
sponded, "I can sell them to you
much cheaper than that by the
tube and foot from my supply
room.” What made the difference
in price between paint and picture?
Just one thing; the artist had put
his soul into the sunset reflection
on the sea! The supply room paint
had not as yet received the master
When a man grows to hts full
stature In culture and character he
reflects God, his maker, and when
this happens, he, too, becomes, as
did the artist’s picture reflecting Its
creator—a matchless creation, be
yond price. Man has received the
master touch in all creation, but
ofttimes he falls to measure up to
It. Instead of being worth even 98
cents he becomes a heavy liability
to society, for it costs the govern
ment somewhere near $300 to keep
a criminal In jail one year, and
only $150, half the sum, to keep a
boy In school one year.
Not long ago I read of a Judge
who was asked to dedicate a new
Y. M. C. A. building. While speak
ing he said: “If this building is in

of one boy it will justify the ex

IF, IF, If, one of the smallest
words In the English language,
Is the greatest stumbling block
known to man. Some people have
built their lives around this prin
ciple of “If" and as a consequence
they have been uncertain, full of
doubt and wavering perplexity,
through the years. Doubt Is lack
of faith. It Is a form of worry.
Worry Is the arch-enemy of man
Usually following an “If” comes
Its close sequel—regrets. For as
the poet has expressed It—“Of all
sad words of tongue or pen, the
saddest are these, It might have
been." All these “lfs” piled high
are not as effective as one definite
ly planned course of action, taken
with a courageous step, a brave
risk as to the outcome and a spirit
of a good loser, come what may. If
one has done his best, angels can
do no more. This is where faith
begins, for If our faith is worth
anything at all, It should strength
en our belief In the promise that
“all things work together for good
to thqse who trust In God."
The “If” philosophy has unfitted
potential leaders for public service,
lives that were meant to be strong
builders of the nation, all because
they could not hurdle some insig
nificant “If” In their lives.
During the depression, In many
homes, some of these “If” night
mares have really come to pass.
But, strange to say, we find we are
all living, loving and laughing in
the same old way in spite of the
fact that the bank went under car
rying one's life savings and per
haps our next winter’s coat. Some
thing has come to us in return,
perhaps it is more gratitude in onr
hearts for what Is really left us
than we felt before our loss.
When we live on a material plane
these “lfs” bother us more like
mosquitoes. If we step to a higher
Intellectual plane they come less
often into our minds—when we
even touch the spiritual side of
life, they come not at all Into our
lives, the “lfs” are gone, for we
attain a tranquillity that pnsseth
human understanding. It Is akin
Eradicate the ‘‘IF’ philosophy
from your life today, whether you
are fifteen years old or fifty years
young, and substitute In Its place
the peace giving assurance of: “I
trust in God and all is well."
