WANT MEANS EFFORT-
"All want something ihey have
not got. I want a cottage, others
want castles."
Thus saith-the rich duchess of
Sutherland, deprecating the age
in which we live. Let noi the du
chess worry. The wanting some
thing you haven't got is what
moves the world.
Even adversity ljas its uses. It
is the lack of things he wans that
keeps man moving upward. Pic
ture a condition- under which
every man had everything he
wanted. Why, it would be a
mighty listless, uninteresting old
world, wouldn't it?
Vfeut nature has provided differ
gently. She has decreed that man,
like all other animals, like the
flowers, the birds, the fishes, the
streams and the hills, shall
change, and in each change dis
cover something that he wants.
The rich, the titled, the power
ful, all want something that they
have not: got, as well as the poor
and lowly. Hence, there is a striv
ing for things. Probably Adam
recognized the mercy of the Lord
in tempting his punishment with
the necessity of earning his liv
ing. Anyhow, sinceEden's time,
or since the time when scientists
say man swung from branch! to
branch in quest of acorns and
other monkey' food, man has
grown through effort for things
he wanted but had not.
The pen is mightier than the
sword, but when it comes tp turn
ing out original humor there's
nothin' like a good pair of shears.
