WANT MEANS EFFORT-
"Ail want something .they have
not got. I want a cottage, others
Thus saith-the rich duchess of
Sutherland, deprecating the age
in which we live. Let not the du
chess worry. The wanting some
thing you haven't got is what
moves the world.
Even adversity has its uses. It
is the lack of things fie 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?
cut nature has provided differ
ently. She has decreed that man,
like all other animals, like the
flowers, the birds, he 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.

WILSON'S BEST JOKE '
Here is Woodrow Wilson's best
jolce. He usestit in speeches to il
lustrate running from fright:
. A southern negro dashed mad
ly into his master's house one

then shot at him.
"Did he hit you," asked the
"Migtity near it,' sah," replied
the negro. "He just missed me
