PLEA8URE8 OF THE POOH
"Tho palnB of poverty," wrote Thorn
as Do Qulnccy, "I had lately Been too
much of; mora than I vlnbcd to re
tnombcr; but tho pleasures of tho
poor, their consolations of spirit, and
their' reposes from bodily toll, can
nover becomo oppressive to contem
plate" Indeed there aro pleasures of
tho poor, says tho Kansas City Star
Ono is not so Ruro of tho delight ot
"reposes from bodily toll." That
phraso, as used by Do Qulncoy, Is
reminiscent of Senator Vest's story of
tho little negro boy who was pounding
his finger with a hammer and was cry
ing from tho pain. "Why do you do
that?" tho seuator asked hlra, "Oh,"
ho said, "It fools so good whon I quit."
Hut If tho toll Is not oppressive, sure
