"O if I could only win that $5.00 for
the 'Times' contest story," said Helen
Perry to herself, as she slowly walked
up Dodge street toward her boarding
place. "If only my brains could adjust
themselves to something besides adding
up columns of figures in a poky old
store. If I could only write one quar
ter as much as I feel like Mrs. Peattie,
for example. I'm sure nobody can ap
preciate the beauties of nature and of
art and music more intensely than 1
do. Now the glorious sunshine this
morning the singing birds the fresh,
green grass the little leaves coming
out on the trees, all these filled my
soul with an ecstacy which was ab
solutely beyond expression. And at Mr.
Butler's last organ recital I thought I
would actually stop breathing from the
very beauty of the music that Chopin
Funeral March in particular, where it
seemed as if every note was a tear-drop
falling into my beating heart. Yet how
could I express my emotion in a form
that would hold people's attention or
bring in a five dollar bill? Everybody
knows that grass is green, that sun
shine is golden, that spring is tho time
for life and for hopefulness. And every
body knows that Mr. Butler is a master
of the organ, and that Chopin's music
is far more expressive than the tenderest
words ever spoken. 0, if I only had an
idea that was new and original and
startling, how fast I would write it
down, and how happy I would be if I
won the five dollars."
Helen had now reached the house,
and after giving a dash of cold water to
her tired eyes she went into the dining
room where a dozen young men and
women were doing justice to the eve
ning meal.
"No, I don't care to go to the theatre
tonight," she said to one of tho young
men who followed her out into the hall
to give her the invitation. "You are
very kind to ask me, but I want to dip
into a book that I brought from the
library today, and I'm too tired and
cross to be good company for any one
tonight, any way."
Wearily she mounted the stairs and
put on her dainty dressing jacket, then
drew her chair close to the lamp and
with a sigh of satisfaction began to read
"In Tune with the Infinite," by Ralph
Waldo Trine. Eight, nine and ten
chimed from the clock on the high
flchool building, but Helen heeded it
not. "O if it only could be true," she
said to herself again as she read how a
difficult literary problem had been work
ed out by a journalist in her sleep.
"But Mr. Trine says that anything is
possible to one who believes that he
really will have the things he desires.
Surely it could do no harm to have a
pencil and paper ready to write down
any brilliant ideas that may come to me
in the morning, and it's more than
time for me to go to bed, any way."
Hardly had Helen's head touched the
pillow when she was wrapped in a sleep
so profound that the morning sunlight
was streaming into her window when
she opened her eyes.
"O what a wonderful story!" she
thought, as her mind lingered over the
fast-fading dreams of the night. "If I
only could write it down and I verily
believe I can!''
She seized paper and pencil, and page
after page was flung away from her
swiftly moving hand. "There; it goes,
any way," she said as she folJed the
paper and placed it in an envelope ad
dressed to the "Times." "I'll be late to
the store this morning but never mind,
it won't happen again, and then I
may win the five dollars!"
Day after day came and went, until
finally one evening Helen found a com
munication from the "Times" editor
stating that her story had won the prize
and would appear in the following Sat
urday's issue. "And yet there are peo
ple who never believe in dreams!" she
said to herself as she danced joyfully
around her little room.
Considering the recent close of the
school year and the intense heat, the
National Educational association should
be satisfied if the attendance at the
Detroit meeting was not so large as on
former occasions, These great assem
blies and conventions come far too oft
en. If the Epworth Leagues, Christian
Endeavor societies and educational,
scientific and other associations would
hold their district meetings twice a
year, their state meetings once a year
and their national meetings once in
three or five years, every desirable end
would be served, and the energy, time
and money expended in racing across
the continent would do better service
when used in promoting the causes for
which these societies are supposed to
exist. The boom-spirit and the pro
moter do harm enough in the commer
cial world without being allowed to
invade our religious and intellectual
Human nature has its limitations, and
the American people do not need stir
ring up half bo much as they need quiet
and thinking time and the opportunity
to consider and perform the duty that
lies nearest to them.
The feverish rushing from one ex
treme to tne other, which is one of our
national characteristics, finds its in
evitable result in the superficiality of
our high school and college courses. A
majority of the students 'try to crowd
the work of four years into two or three;
a smattering of various subjects is all
that can possibly be secured, with no
time to devote to the beauties of nature
or to the human beings with whom they
are associated. Trained in this way to
the habit of appropriation of all things
in sight for personal use, the instincts
of charity and of generoeit) are stifled,

while the spirit of helpfulness and tho
ability to deal tactfully, yet with ab
solute fairness, with other human be
ings, are likewise rare qualities In these
latter-day students. "Man's inhumani
ty to man makes countless thousands
mourn," and this inhumanity ia a direct
result of tho spirit of personal greed
which exists in embryo form in every
human being, and which is abnormally
developed by the conditions surround
