crops In Michigan and Minnesota were

ON RETIRING FROM BUSINESS
of a Scholar on
To most men retirement from business
or the daily tasks of life on account of
age, whether voluntary or not. Is dis
tasteful, even when accompanied by the
accustomed Income or a pension. It Is diffi
cult for the men of three score and ten,
or even three score years, ' to accommodate
themselves to the new conditions. They
are rendered unhappy by lack of their old
time activities. The end of life seems
appreciably nearer. That they are sup
planted by younger men and their methods
by newer ones seems humiliating to them.
Each year sees more and more such re
tirements, and the perisistent discussion
of old age pensions presages at some fu
ture time the existence of a large and con
stantly changing body in society existing
on thst basis. At present with us the
movement has not extended beyond cor
poratlona and the military service, but al
ready there Is proposed that the govern
ment pension It civil servants, and It mat
be that In time old age pensions will be In
stituted here a they are In continental
Eutope, to Include the whole nation.
When such time arrives It will be nec
essary for Individuals to view the prac
tice from another point of view than that
with which It Is generally regarded to
day. If great unhapplnesa Is to be avoided.
And In this ooiincctloii we venture to
recommend to the reading of every one
the calm and beautiful article, "The New
Reservation of Time," In the Atlantic
Monhtly for August by William Jewett
Tucker. Mr. Tucker on attaining his sev
entieth year was retired on a pension fro.rt
the presidency of Dartmouth college, a
position which he hid he'.d with g.vat
distinction for many years. He had not
felt his age, and scarcely realised that
he had attained the allotted span, so his
retirement was to him unexpected, but so
far from feeling humlllatol at having
"gone Into residence," he finds the life
there "is most stimulating and quicken
ing. In spite of the fact that I am cut
off from certain public activities and put
upon a reduced regime for each day's
The resson for this unexpected result Is
found in the new valuation of time which
bad come with tho change. One learns
easily to revalue time "-when the Imperative
Occasion arises." And with the newly ac
quired sense comes a great exhilaration.
"Time," he says, "has now become In a
very appreciable way a freed possession,"
and In his old age one learns how, as the
psalmist advised, "to number his days,"
not as the miser does by subtraction, but
by addition "one day more to enrich the
"I count It a very great liberty," he sgaln
says, "to be allowed, as It Is certainly a
very great are to bo able to live In right
proportion to the present This liberty,
and the art to use It, make up another of
