Happiness Cannot be Obtained
Without Good Honest
The habit of work is the best of all
habits. It is not only a disciplinarian,
but a good educator of character as well.
It compels economy of time, and fore
thought. When the habit of tilling life
with useful occupation is acquried every
minute will be turned to account, and
leisure, when it comes, will be enjojed
with more zest.
Application to work, absorption in
affairs, contact with men, and all the
pressure which business imposes, are
most valuable in training the intillcct
and forming the character. To regard
business only as a means of getting a
living is an utterly low view. A mas.'s
business is his part of the world's work
his share of the great activities which
render society possible. The perpetual
call on a man's readiness, self-control,
vigor, the constant appeals to the in
tellect, the demands on the will, and
the necessity for rapid and responsible
judgement, makes strong and ready men
and men of vast capacity for attain.
The habit of work is wholesome not
only for the body, but for the mind.
The energetic man is a source of activi
ty and enjoyment to all who come with
i:i reach of his influence, while the lazy
man drags himself through life morally
and spiritually dead.
The habit of work is as essential for
the happiness and well being of woman
as of man. Without it she is apt to sink
into a state of listless ennui and use
Si?', lessness, which is always accompanied
by sick headache and attacks of
"nerves." The best cure for these two
distinctly feminine complaints is work
and plenty of it. Nowadays we hear a
good deal about the business moman,
but the able housewife is the most effi
cient business woman, and the most
sujcesaf ul. The regulation and control
of the details of the house, keeping the
expenses below the income, the arrang
ing everything to plan and system im
plies industry, application, method,
forethought, ability, and power of organization-no
more is required in the
management of a successful business of
v'. The habit of work is neccessary to all
classes of society-the rich as well as
the poor. The gentleman by birth and
habit, however rich, cannot remain idle
he is forced to work to keep in physical
aid mental health, and he is compelled
by a sense of duty to contribute his
quota of endeavor toward the general
well being of society. To be idle and
useless is neither an honor nor a privi
lege. Happiness is never found without
work, in which there is life, health.and
pleasure. The spirits may be exhaust
ed and wearied by work, but they are
utterly waste! by idleness. Thousands
can bear testimony to the truth of say
ing that work is one of the great se
crets of happiness.
Hard work, steadily and regularly
carried on, never hurts anyone. The
more useful work he does the more he

thinks ui.d ft els, the more he rta'iy
lives. The idle, useless man, no matter
to what extent his his life may he pro
longed, merely vegetates.
The early teachers of Christianity en
nobled work !y their example. "He
that will not work," said .St. Paul,
"neither shall he eat;" and he glorified
himself in that he had labored with his

hand and a carpenter's rule in the other
and from England he afterwards passed
over into Germany, carrying thither
the art of building. Luther also in the
midst of a multitude of other employ
ments, worked diligently for a' living,
earning his bread by gardening, build
ing, turning, and even clock making.
It was characteristic of Napoleon,
when visiting a work of mechanical ex
cellence, to pay great respect to the in
ventor, and, on taking his leave, to
salute him with a low bow.
Like other great captains, Welling
ton had an almost boundless capacity
for work, lie drew up the heads of a
Dublin police bill (being still secretary
for Ireland) when tossing olFthe mouth
of Moiulego, with Junot and the French
army waiting for nim on the shore. So
Ca-sar, another of the greatest com
manders, is said to have written an es
say on Latin rhetoric while crossing the
Alps at the head of his army. And
Walientien, when at the head of 6'VK0
men, and in the mid -it of a camgaign,
with the ent my before him, dictated
from headquarters the medical treat
ment of his poultry yard.
Washington also wa an indefatigable
man of business. From his boyhood he
tiiiigently trained himself in habits of
application, of study, and of methodical
work. His manuscript school books,
which are still preserved, ehow that as
early us the age of 11 he occupied him
self voluntarily in copying out such
things as forms of receipts, notes of
hand, bills of exchange, bonds, inden
tures, leases, land warrants, and other
dry documents, all written out with
great care, and the habits which he
thus acquired were in a great measure
the foundation of those admirable busi
ness qualities which he afterwards so
successfully brought to bear in the
afFairs of government.
The same energetic vitality as dis
played in the power of working has
distinguished eminent men in all time
and countries. The living principal of
constant work, abundant occupation,
and practical contact with men in the
affairs of lite has in all times been the
hecc ripener of the energetic vitality of
strong natures. Business habit, cul
tivated and disciplined, are found alike
useful in every pursuit. The same in
dustry, application, economy of time
and labor which have rendered them
useful in one sphere of employment
have been found equally available in
others. Instead of unfitting a cultivat
ed mind for scientific or literary pur
suits, the habits formed in business are
often the best training one can have.
Voltaire insisted with truth that the
real spirit of business and literature is
the same, the perfection of each being
the union of energy and thoughtfulness
of cultivated Intelligence and practical
of the active and contemplative essence
- a union commended by Lord Bacon as
the concentrated excellence of man's
nature. It has been said that even the
man of genius can write nothing worth
reading in relation to human attairs un
less he has been in some way connected
with the serious every day busainess of
life. -Charles Higgins.
