NOT HERE TO BE MISERABLE
Ws All Havs Our Troubles but Should
Learn to Keep Them In
If there le anything that Is Irritat
ing 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 best 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 gris
tly old world."
People who talk that way don't de
serve happiness. We weren't put here
to be miserable. The idea that life
1s for suffering and not enjoyment Is
fast being shelved. If the Lord ap
proved of lamentations and tears, he
would not have put so much in the
world to make us hopeful and happy.
There la nothing more common than
trouble. We all have our troubles,
but it tc the wise ones of earth that
keep their burdens in the background.
It Is so common and cheap and selfish
to be continually parading one's griefs
and disappointments. Whatever our
lot, we should all learn the wisdom of
that helpful little prayer: "Help me
to win, if win I may; but if I may not
win, make me a good loser." Mary

The young doctor drew in a great
breath of country air. The garden at
the rear of the old home in which he
was to spend his vacation was a mass
of scented flowers. Roses, zenias
dahlias all clustered about like little
joyous souls roving in the moonlight.
A refreshing rain had cooled the
air, and because the night was beau
tiful,, and the doctor young, his
thoughts turned toward the girl to
whom his heart had lately responded
Because his mind was in a chaotic
condition regarding the depth of his
feeling toward Rose Langdon, Dr.
Emery had come to the solitude of the
old manor house on Long Island.

were easily interrupted. He paused
In the walled garden next door a
soft swishing sound made regular har
mony to his ear. He drew nearer the
wall and looked over through a clump
of bushes. His eyes opened wide and
he leaned cautiously away from the
Was she a wraith or a blood and
bone girl who trailed back and forth
over the rain-soaked grass? Dr.
Emery, so completely startled out of
his every-day; humdrum city life, could
not definitely answer the question.
He watched with fascinated attention.
The girl's attire was white and
clingy and traily, and as she moved
across the long grass her bare feet
peeped forth. Those little feet found
a pool of water left by the recent
rain, and a gleeful chuckle fell from
the girl's lips.
"Insane!" muttered the young doc
tor. "By Jove! What a pity she is
as beautiful as the lilies.
"They toil not, neither do they
spin," thought the doctor, and the
pity dropped out of his thoughts, the
girl seemed bo absolutely happy, so
evidently joyous in this condition of
the mind. After humming a few notes
of lilting melody the girl tripped

quickly toward the house and disap
peared. Dr. Emery frowned, partly because
the garden seemed less beautiful and
partly because he had been Inter
rupted In his attempt to diagnose this
peculiar form of brain malady. The
puzzled frown remained as the doctor
returned to the house.
At an early hour of the morning
there came to the doctor's ears that
same tinkling laugh. He jumped hur
riedly from his bed and looked out of
The sun was a great ball in the
eastern sky, and It cast its dawning
color over the girl In the next garden,
"This Is assuredly a peculiar case,"
muttered the doctor, while he kept
fascinated eyea upon the girl. She
was In the front garden now and a
blue kimono enveloped her; her head
was bound closely in a turban effect
of the same shade, and she ws trip
ping quickly about among the great
hydrangea bushes. From time to
time she would select a blossom and
hold it -in two caressing hands, then
suddenly "bury her face in it soft
depths. It was at such momenta that
the little laugh rang out. The doctor
watched her fuss over the tiny white
petals that clung to her eyes and lips
"She is just plum dippy!" ejaculated
Dr. Emery, with a tinge of Irritation
that she should be getting so much
joy out of living. "I suppose if I dis
covered a cure for her the would be
as grumpy then as she is happy now.
The girl then went -iwn into the
back garden and selected an ear of
corn from the stocks, which she ate,
nibbling It with apparent relish.
Then she sampled peas, carrots and
"Hud and all! Most extraordinary!
For the first time In his career Dr.
Emery regretted that he was not an
insanity expert. "She seems to thrive
on it never saw such a beauty in all
my life," was the doctor's thought as
he crept back into bed after the girl
had returned to the house. He lay a
long time wondering how he could ar
range to talk to the girl without arous
ing her suspicion.
During the day he watched for vari
ous moods of the case. When the

air, after which she brushed it vigor
ously. !"Now she thinks she is an Italian
wood carrier." The doctor watched
her put a book on the crown of her
head and walk slowly around and
around the house. "Ill bet there is
a specialist in that house watching
her every minute!"
In the evening when the moon was
high the girl came again into the back
garden. Dr. Emery was well hidden
behind a clump of bushes.
"Great Scott! She has on her bath
ing suit! And she is rolling in this
soaking grass! Shell have something
tomorrow that will need a doctor as
sure as my name's Emery!"
After rolling over and over in the
wet grass and then lying full length
on her back for a long moment, the
girl pulled a bathing cap well over
her head and turned on the hose.
With laughter falling from , her lips
she ran In and out, squealing with the
cold and exhilaration of her hose bath.
A door opened in his own house.
"Oh, Dr. Emery! Here is a tele
gram for you," the voice from the
house called. .
With a lingering look at the hose

He was summoned back to town. A
patient needed him and Emery took
the Jate train out that night. He
went, determined to return as quickly
as possible. Pity being akin to love,
the young doctor felt the diagnosis
of his own case was easily made.
Weeks wore on and still Dr. Emery
was harnessed to the grind in town.
He felt, however, that since the snow
was upon the ground the girl would
not be permitted to carry on her in
sane wanderings in the garden. Rose
Langdon had drifted entirely out of
his thoughts and only the girl of the

to meet his partner for dinner.
The most radiantly beautiful girl
he had ever looked upon had laid a
hand on his arm and was walking be

The girl turned wide, violet eyes
upon him. Then she laughed that
same tinkling laugh that he had
heard in the garden.
"Not that I know of,- Dr. Emery,. Is
there something In my appearance
that suggests "
"Nothing but beauty," the -doctor
said, beause It had been in his heart
so long. "But last summer "
The girl turned quickly toward him
and a bright blush crimsoned her
cheeks. "Where were your she

Violet looked into Dr. Emery's eyes
and seemed fascinated by the multi

laughed and tried to keep the color
from her cheeks.

Violet laughed aloud.
"Ton are forgetting the corn and

tried to recall just how far her experi

that. From the oozy mud, as you call

doubt had lots of little green "

slightly away. "I refuse to listen.

the doctor, and when he smiled
straight into her eyes Violet had the
grace to blush.
