mlterable over misfortune we
may chafe under trouble, but In
our Inmost hearta we know why
we tuffer thete. and that the
faults It would be convenient to
lay on the doorsteps of others
belong to us.

them, but when they come to us
let us bend our shoulders to
their burda-.s or ptueklly get
beneath and throw them off.
And let us do It ourselves. It
will make us happier, stronger,
better men Independent, cour
