IME R^CB_OF LIFE,
By EUa Wheeler Wilcox,
OAST August there was a memor?
able suburban raco.
A wonderful blind horse,
known as Rhythmlo, carried
off the honors of the d&y,
This event has been mentioned' before
In this aolumn. but It- will beur enlarg?
There ?? something abo^t the though^
of. t|ha.t sple.-idld animal, dwelling In utter
darkness, and trusting the hand on his

tei'-equlpped rivals, which makes on?
throat and a swelling:'?' in the" heart rp?
Hundreds of letters, pome to me each
written or sent Jf human beings possess?
ed the confidence and trust and resigna-'
tlon of this Inferior animal in an Unseen
Ruler. .'??' "''''. '
Rhythmic could not see his driver, but
he felt his. hand upon tho rein, and hi?
whip upon his flanks, and sped on, doing
his best. , .,?- , ;
? Wo cannot see God, yet we are driven
by some strange forco, pulled to' the
right and left, and whipped on, and l*>
stead of doing our best,.most of us ara
-doing ??G worst, ; or. nothing at all, to
make the race a success, ;
We curse the power whloh pulls and
whips,- and try to oppose It, and then
complain? tbat.our lives have been forced
Into the ohannel of failure.
' It: is ?not.true. To go ahead, trustlne
In Divine guidance and In ourselves, and
to ?Jo our best, means success when the
raco Is over. "
We oannot fall to win. It |s the jerk?
ing back, the halting, the doubting,-the
complaining of our track, of our posi?
tion on it. and the distrust of - our
strength, and the unbelief in our Unseen
Drive;? which brings failure,
Oh, for more human Rhythmics! '
The record was this, when the race waa
The great blind conqueror, Rhythmic:

To the eyes of his driver he trusted all.

They won the day for the great blind
steed. , . ?
Great is the 'lesson, oh, mortal, blind,
God Is the Master, His whip Is kind.
