Hive vo l ever h;atd the account of how tint now

mom lis an army of more than a thousand men worked
like demons day and iiinht to control the terrible flood
that w is pjiiritu in upon lands and settlers in the Im
perial Valley and washing away whole towns. The men
in charge of the work scarcely ate or slept. Their
clothes were caked with mud and dirt. Tliev went un
shaven. Their voices became ra.sj.ed and hoarse, their eyes bloodshot
from the strain. When thev ran their trains out on the trestle con-

uoicea in me wont ne naa Deen aoingr rtiotigli he-had worked till he
j dropped exhausted, though he faced death, don't vou think he n-as
exultantly happy when the river paused and then reluctantly returned
to its old channel?
Do you think these men thought of wages? Their traces were n
! necessary part of the work. Thev meant food and clothinj? for them
selves and family. But these men were not working for w:iiri-s. Thev
i were working for the pure joy of achievement, the joy of doing somc-
iiiiiig worm a mar. s while.
Isn't that the way to work? Doesn't that Dut hesrt into nnr
'work? And most of the work being done in the world, nn m.-mrr
what it is, is worth while work. It is necessarv It helps to for
ward progress and better living. And if we are not netting the jov
in the part we are doing which we ought to h:ve. then li.-lv m,
l found our right work. And as this jov is our riiht and we slionl.-.
have it, then why not get into the work that will give it ?
Billy Sunday brought out this point in his picturesque way in on
of his sermons:
"Go back to the farm," he advised, "and study exojrt d-iirvin
and help save the lives of 200.00 babies that die every year in tliTs
country from the impure miik that is sold. Go out West and study
and be a horticulturist. Go out to Oregon. Yakima. Wells Ab'ott.
Grant's Pass and they will pjv vou $150 a month if you are expert
enough to manage an orchard and spray and prune trees."
He puts into that the feeling of big work, of worth whil work
doesn't he ? He sounds the keynote of happy work motive. Some
may think that work on the farm is hard, monotonous, h-it if one is
saving the life of babies, if one is Sv tiding beautiful, delicious fruit" nil
over the world, the work becomes different, doesn't it ? The seen- nt
the mending of the Colorado River was a picture of the grimiest, Most
nerve rackins, exhausting toil the world has to show. Bttt the men
weren't thinking of the mud and slime. Thev were tl,inVii.o t ti,
1 homes and lives to be saved, of almost an empire to be reclaimed for
Will Comfort in his book, "Midstream," tells of the attitude of
soldiers toward their work. "They were taught," he sivs. "t'ut
work is hell; that food, sleep, drink and pav are all that make lif-.'.
Is that the attitude toward work and life for a man or woman
with red blood in their veins? Rather than think that or live it.. I le
lieve that most of us would rather h iv- been one of the grimiest and
hardest worked of those who mended the Colorado River.
Work is so joyous, let's get the right work and the right morhe.
if we haven't them, and then exultantly go to it.
