We All Have Our Troubles but Should
Learn to Keep Them in
If there Is anything that Is Irritat
tcg It is the way that some people
talk of their troubles, as if they were
a kind of a treat not cheerfully, but
with a kind of gloomy Joy; in a word,
they are resigned. It is only mighty
big humbugs that will say they are
thankful for troubles. We may even
tually live to see that they were right
and beet for us. bat at the time it is
sheer hyprocrisy to waggle our heads
solemnly and say: "Happiness Is a
snare, anyhow; It Is foolish for any
one to expect happiness in this griz

People who talk that way don't de
serve happiness. We weren't put here
to be miserable The idea that life
is for suffering and not enjoyment is
fast being shelved. If the Lord ap

world to make us hopeful and happy.
There is nothing more common than
trouble. We all have our troubles.

he venture to return, but even with

But it was to the boots that he owed
the final answer to his questioning

This. then, was the explanation of
that noisy kiss. With beaming face

The rest of the scene passed off as

kiss. Miss Bonnington's boots bad

MADE WOMEN TURN AND LOOK

In a crowd of Christmas shoppers
in Sixth avenue there appeared a pic

sailor clad in the picturesque blue

throat, round cap bearing the gilt let

cf his sea-going trousers just escaping
the mud of the street. Nothing nn
uraal about all this. The thing that
made the feminine heads turn to look
was the fact that in his arms he
lugged a wee duplicate of himself. His
baby son was round and ruddy of
cheek. His little sailor collar was
turned back from a fat and dimply
throat- Even the string with the mid
shipman's whistle oa the end was
tucked under his collar, and his tiny
trousers were cut exactly like his
sailor daddy's. His cap bore the same
ship's name. The windows rigged for
Christmas seemed to fascinate the
sailorman as much as the sailor baby.
They didnt mind the rain, and they
were utterly unconscious that folk
were turning round to look at them in
warm-hearted wonder. Daddy and
son were not buying anything only
looking; having a bit of a Christmas
outing together, fraternally, so to
