f Working or Dreaming? tltl A" P" j The Folly of Pessimism
By W1XIFRED BLACK.
Shs's a stenographer, am she's a good
stenographer sometimes.
Shs's quick wltted, good humored, In
industrious, Intelli
gent, but she never
keeps a position
longer thsn two or
three months at a
time.
"I lose all Inter
est In my work,"
she says. "I love
books and pictures
and music and I
rate drudgery. I
can't stay In one
place long. the
inner unrest drives
ms on. What shall
t do? I am the
support of my
mother, and my
conscience says keep on with the drudg
ery, but my soul cries out for wider
scope. Whst shall I do."
. Do. my dear child. What Is there for
you to do but keep on working? What
el her excuse Is there for the food you
est and the roof that shelters you.
How msny people do you think there
are In tke world who work because they
want toior because they enjoy the work
they find to do? Not one In ten thou
sand, and you are Just one of the ones.
6o you lova music, pictures, books.
Hurrah for you. You ought to be thank
ful for all these tastes, and you should
say a little prayer of gratitude every
time you think of them. They are worth.
everything In the world to you.
You're rich, dear child, richer far than
the old fellow who pays you to write his
letters for him. snd who Ik bored to
death at the very thought of a decent
took, and who can't stay awake when lis
bears good music to save his life.
Every taste of that sort is capital to
you, so much In the bsnk of human en
Joyment. Give up your honest, regular Work to
go mooning around looking for "higher
things?" What nonsense, what utter non
sense .
What higher thing is there In life thsn
Jurt the thing you are doing-taking good
car of your mother?
What's the difference between you right
now and the dreamer who alts' all day
la as attic trying to be "an artist," and
dreaming of great deeds nobly done?
Just this: You are earning your right t
live and tie dreamer Is dreaming away
all that makes Ufa worth living at all.

To deny that the progress of th world

Is to deny that Christianity has bettered

beginning to govern themselves, even In
