Handsome and blushing young
clergymen have always been regarded
as eligibles by match-making mam
mas from the days of Jane Austen
until now. That is why speculation
has been rife about two brothers, both
young clergymen of our own city, and
many are the possible brides that
thost interested have assigned them.
Some of our centemporaries among
the public prints even went so far as
to mention them publicly. Now,
however, one-half of the speculation
has been brought to a sudden termina
tion by the marriage ot one of the
young men.
At high noon today at All Saints'
church, in the presence of only the
family of the rector and a few friends
and relatives of the principles, the
marriage of the Rev. Robert Seaton
Flockhart and Miss Marguerite Alice
Meyer, daughter of Mrs. Henry
Meyer was solemnized. I he Kev.
John Edward Flockhart, the other
object of the attention of fond
mothers, acted as best, man and Mr.
Gustav A. Meyer, brother of the bride,
gave her awav.
The Rev. Flockhart and his bride
have gone east for a week and a half,
that being the length of the young
rector's leave of absence. He has
been associated with the Rev. T. J.
Mackay as assistant rector of All
Saints' church for the last two years.
His bride is a charming young woman
who has a wide circle of friends in
Omaha's Country club set. She has
traveled abroad extensively, prefer
ing travel to much schooling as the
means of acquiring a liberal educa
tion. Gustav Meyer, the bride's brother,
was married recently to Lucy Gore
Cotton, niece of Mrs. John Brady. A.
L. Meyer is the bride uncle.

The grown "boy" has a red about the ears with the knowledge that
he too casts a wishful eye on the rainbow-hued shells that lie on the
shore by the Sea of Love-Land where he walks. He too pries and peers
looking for "valuable shell" the kind with a satiny pearl inside the
pink and white variety with a dash of coral in lips and cheeks and a
glow of amber for hair. He too never gives up the notion that in some
closed shell some day when his curious ringers have pinched it open he'll
find and elf that will fly straight bathing suit, wet hair and all from her
chilly house into another and wanner one his heart.
Ho she-shells! Ho! Who will buy from the old gray sea, every

"Our attitude toward events often
causes the events that happen to us,"
once remarked Lord Beaconsfield. In
other words, the way in which you
"take" things has an offset upon the
things you will have to take. You
will make them better or worse.
I was reminded of those words by
what happened to a man the other
day. He had "an awful day of it"
he declared. Living in a boarding
house, he forgot to wind up the alarm
clock that wakes him in the morning.
Annoying. Very! Waking late and
trying to make up lost time, he cut
himself severely while shaving. More
annoying still. Hurrying downstairs,
he met one of the lodgers who
"laughed at him in an irritating man
ner." He had three minutes in which
to eat his breakfast and he spent them
in scolding the landlady for setting
such a scandalous meal before him.
With the landlady's threat that she
would certainly bring an action for
slander against him ringing in his
ears, he rushed off to the station and,
missing his train, spent the interval
he had to wait in calling on the sta
tion master and complaining that the
management of the station was scan
dalous. He was so busy in his work that
he only caught the next train by the
skin of his teeth. Frightfully an
noying! When the conductor de
manded his ticket three -stations fur
ther down, and he had not got one,
he addressed a short lecture to the
other occupants of the car. He was
getting annoyed really annoyed. He
was arrested and fined for hitting a
passenger who told hhn he ought to
be ashamed of himself.
All those troubles sprang from the
first the alarm not going off was the
egg out of which they were all
hatched. If his "attitude" to that
event had been right if he had taken
it calmly none of the other troubles
would have come upon him. How
you "take" things certainly has a
most important effect upon the things
you will have to take.
Burton, the traveler, found the pro
verb, "Troubles never come singly."
popular among all the eastern people
he visited. "Bad luck" came in
streaks. He mentioned the fact to
a Persian astrologer renowned for his
wisdom, and the astrologer told him
that it was perfectly true troubles
came in flocks.
"The reason is simple," he said.
"Human beings in wonderful degree
draw on themselves the things that
happen to them. The happy person
attracts to himself or herself haDDi-
: ness. The unhappy person does just
I the opposite. The troubled person
gathers troubles to himself. With the
healthy person all food agrees. With
the unhealthy person all foods save
one or two disagree. Therefore, if
you would avoid troubles when it first
arrives, shake it from you and care
fully attune your soul to attract
happy fortune. This is wisdom, my
son."
His theory amounts to this, that a
person "makes his luck" that as he
is "attuned" to good things or bad, so
they come.
Probably, if one turns one's eyes
on "how things happen," one will find
a good deal to bear out the truth of
the astrologer's theory. Haven't you
noticed how, if something happens to
mar one's exceptionally good temper,
other things follow of the same kind?
A piece of good news in the morning
and the day will be fortunate. We
are prepared predisposed one way
or the other, and we influence what is
to come so that it is good or bad.
