Is it possible, to be wholly sane yet do
our work In the world? It would seem so,
if we v can. attain the right adjustment
between - the individual and society, be
tween the particular and the universal.
This Is, sanity, would appear to be largely
a question of will; for although to be sane
is to be rational, nevertheless the actual
adjustment of the will to the forces that
play upon the organism is the real test.
Therefore it is Important to undertake
a more thorough inquiry into the nature
of the will. . 1 -
A friend. .whose sister wos moderately
insane made a tour of Institutions In
which, the demented were cared for, and
In the hospital which had the largest
percentage of cures she was told by the
physician in charge that he traced in
sanity in many cases to a will that had
never been Controlled.' That Is, the con
dition dated .to . childhood, to the time
when the child should be taught to obey.
In order to teach obedience this wise
physician deprived his patients of various
comforts and articles of food until they
should learn to respect not his will but
the unwritten laws of the insltutlon. He
then proceeded to build on this initial
structure of obediences.
My friend's sister was of the self-assertive
type,; so was my friend, and she
knew that this conclusion In regard to
the untrained will was perfectly just,
how be it there had been a special cause
tor her sister's illness. This is Indeed
a painful discovery to make late in life.
If there were wisdom. Instead of trying
to break our wills, or giving us up as
too difficult and allowing us to be obe
dient, our parents would begin by study
ing and mastering the will in themselves,
for we "acknowledge that no one can
command who has not learned to obey.
The-foundation of obedience Is knowl
edge that' no one can command who has
not learned to obey.
The foundation of obedience Is knowl
edge and acceptance of natural law. One
earns to, obey, not people, but the uni
verse, the moral law. The universe
ipeaks through instinct, through pain, re
norse. ooubt, desire, a thousand mental
and physical reactions through which we
are brought in contact with real life. If
I leafn the lesson through actual con

benefit of my experience. Hence it
should be possible to aid the will in
childhood to evolve Into obedience and
usefulness. For the will, striving through
all the experiences of life, is the power
that eventually enables us to' attain. The
dfficulty usually is. that our knowledge
of the successive conditions does not
pqual the . power that struggles and
As we have before - noted, the will
makes its appearance as the central ac
tivity in the stream of consciousness, in
timately allied with, desire, receiving
incentives from instinct, guided by the
heart, and assuming progressive forms
through our aspirations or ideals and
the achievements of the Intellect. At
ence a source of misery and of strength,
the whole history of human character Is
Involved in its actions and reactions.
We are most likely to understand It
by considering certain of its simple
phases and then as we turn to its more
complex life by taking care not to sep
arate its contests and victories from the

moral issues in which the heart of hu
man experience is involved.
In some people, for example, the prob
lem of the will Is Inseparably allied with
an exceedingly sensitive temperament.
On the surface this appears to be - a
question of weakness of will.
Then there are those who are tempera

The one appears to make too little of
the will while the other makes too much.
Tet self-assertion plays its part in both
types. Then there Is the question of the
obstinate will,, the problem of . freedom,
and of moral regeneration.
Looking first at the will on the side of
its unrullness, we are constrained to
acknowledge that, whether sensitive or
strenuous, obstinate or weak, there is -in
us all a fairly large element of Inertia
bound up with this lump of clay. Most
of us like' to be waited on, and If we
can command the resources we are not
only pleased that others should serve us,

possible. When ill we are content to have
the utmost made of our aches and pains,
unless experience has taught us more
than common wisdom.
The wits of physicians and ministers
of all schools are taxd to the Utmost In
the endeavor to arouse the selfish will.
The problem of the arousing of the will
is Indeed the problem of human life.

Many Men of
, Voting Age
A preliminary statement of the mala
population 21 years of age and over dls-j
tributed according to color, nativity and)
parentage for each state as a total and!
for each of Its cities of over 26,000 inhabit
tants, as shown by the returns of thef
thirteenth census, taken as of April 15,1
1910,- has just been taken by the Cenius
Department of Commerce and Labor. TheJ
statistics were prepared under the direct
tlon of William C. Hunt, chief statistician!
for population In the census bureau.
Distinction is made in the statement b-j
tween white males and native and foreign)
birth, respectively, and also for the native
white with respect to parentage. Those
having both parents native of the United!
States are classed as of native parentage ;
those having either both parents bora
abroad or one parent native and one par.
ent born abroad are classed as of foreign
or mixed parentage. Foreign-born white
males who have been naturalised are also
The potential voting strength of eacbi
state and city is expressed by the number
of its males 21 years of age and over, ex-j
eluding the foreign born who have not ben
come naturalized, but by this is not meant!
the actual number of voters. It repre-l
sents, rather, the number of males who)
from the standpoint of age alone are ell-J
gible to vote, aside from any qualifies
tlons based upon . education, length ofj
residence or consideration of a like nature)
Imposed by the natlorjl or state govern.)
There are In all 229 cities which had Its'
1910 more than 25,000 inhabitants, with an
aggregate population of 28,543,818. ' These
cities together contained in 1910 a total ofl
(,004,422 males of voting age, or 31.S per)
cent of their combined population. Foa
continental United States as a whole?
males of voting age numbered 26,909, 15li
and constituted 29.4 per cent of the entire;
population (91,972,2ft)) in 1910.
Of the whole number of males of voting
age In the 229 cities taken together, naj
tlve whites of native parentage numbet)
2,900,244, or S2.2 per cent; native whites Ol
foreign .or mixed parentage, 2,040,907,. o

born whites, not naturalised, 1,830,816, qs.
21.4 per cent; negroes, 619,414, or 5.8 pet!

The equivalent numbers and percenU
ages for continental United States as.flj

entage, 13,211,73, or 48.9 per cent; native!
whites of foreign or mixed parentage, 4,4
