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. Little.Bobbie's Pa Uy WILLIAM V. KIRK.

You can earn your own llv Ing. take care of th mother who bora you, and have lot of tlm left to think about books and music and pictures. And, whisper. There's nothing particularly high about an Idea Just because It' be tween the covers of a book or en th can vas behind a frame. It's the Idea that counts th Idea and th way It's carried out. What are they all about all the muslo snd the books and the pictures? They are about life, real life, th very kind of life you are leading right now. Angels are out of fashion In pictures, and in books, too We read about folks nowadays. Just plain, everyday folks, with livings to earn and bills to pay, and mothers to support. 8lories! Why, you ar a story every day. and It's your business to see that It la a good story with a good ending,. too. . And. whisper! Where did you get that notion that It Is "noble" to paint pic tures, "fin" to writ books, and "grand" to make music, but Ignoble to make ten dollar a week taking dictation and writing on a typewriter? A painter doesn't paint to be "noble." he paints because that's th thine he can do. Wrllara ar no different from any one else. They writ to mak money. most of them. Why shouldn't thy? And j musicians aren't thinking of the eter nal melody of the spheres when they play th nubensteln In F. They are thinking of th good, warm coat they are going to buy fathtr with the money the man at th door la taking In tor th concert. Com down to earth, Uttla sister. That's where wa all live Just now. .Let's live right along down on th nice, comfy, sane, natural ground, and thank good ness we can enjoy th fin things of lit without having a hanl in making them at all, unless It's our business to mak them. Don't worry about that. If you'r a genius you will do th work you were sent her to do. If you have to pound the typewriter all day and work at tha genius affair all nignt. that's tha way we can tell cm tha genius. Get a new Job. typewriting, and keep it this tlme-and don't feel like a martyr because you work for a living.
