They Are as Necessary and Pleasant
As the Flowers and the
A. B. WVilliams, in Richmond News
Suppose all the people in the world
were exactly alike, had the same
standards, the -same habits and 'meth-.
ods of life, believed in the same
things. had the same purposes? It
would be a world so inexpressibly
dreary- that probably w*e would be
driven to unanimous suicide to rid
ourselves of it. One of the greatest
cmforts of life is the knowledge
that while we have ro new experi
ence and no new thoughts and there
are no new situations. yet. each of
us is essCntiallv different trom every
boy else. Naturalists tell us that
there are no duplicate-. N,- two
things in nature. animate tor inanl
mate. human tr animal. are precise
l alike. Therefore we havc infinite
variety andI no'thin.r is so mail. s'
light. so trival that :t ha, not its uses.
It is the habi: 'f manV excellent

manity pressed: and the fortifications

and frivolity danced in and claimed

When we are monotonous we are
wrong. unwholesome and unhealthy.
Frivolity and the fri\olous have their
places and uses .i life. and really are
as important as the profoundest phil
osophy. the philosophers and the
mathematicians. The girl who swishes
her skirts and kicks tip her heels and
performs atrocious puns and even
more atrocious music on the stage
is valuable in her way as the serious
theologian who in a cloistered re
treat gives his mind to the knottiest
and most intricate points of doctrine
or explores the most awful mysteries.
Aside from the fact that she may be
-as frequently she is-in private life
a sedate and decorous person, a faith
ful wife with a strong domestic turn
and a w'atchful mother. realize it is
as useful to make people laugh as to
make them think. A life without
thought is empty and barren. a mere
desert: and life without laughter is
dark, desolate and gloomy, a mere
dank and miserable cave. Those who
are frivolous as a profession and
make *frivolity their purpose in life
are among the worst. most pervasive
and tiresome nuisances that afflict
humanity. Nothing is more pathetic
than a man or woman come to middle
age to decreptitude with no purpose
but to try to make someb(,dy laugh.
Nothing is more dreary or ghastly
than a joke out of season or labori
ously manufactured. Maturity or
age without dignity and trying to
caper vivaciously and to grin and
grimace with the abandon of child
hood is even more ridiculous and
painful than a yotith which is one
long, giggle. Yet, the people who
are weighed down with their cown dig
nity and unable to unbend from stiff
ness -become chronic, and people who
find nothing in life but the serious and
solemn are equally repulsive and un
The Power that created the frown
ing and towering cliff gave the same
pains to the fashioning and perfect
ing of the daintest flower that sways
obediently to the zephyrs. The Hand
that made tlie fierce heart and twisted
the mighty thews of the lion created
the butterfly, gleaming and quivering
in the summer sun. Frivolities are
as necessary and pleasant as the flow
ers and the butterflies. A world all
cliffs and furious lions and a world
all dainty flowers and painted butter
lies wotuld be alike tiresome. We may
have excesses in everything to make
good bad and beauty weariness and
satiety. Moderation and variety and
kindly but reasonable sympathy with
all the elements and parts of human
ity make the way to the best happi
ness and pleasure there is in life.
Let us, therefore-the highest and
most dignified and sanctified of us
all-consent to listen with pleased
ear to occasional prattle and non
sense and laughter. Let us look with
indulgence on the capers and grim
aces of the buffon, paid or unpaid
and of either sex, who is trying to
amuse us. We may even put on 'the
comedy mask ourselves sometimes
and consent to do our share of the
capering and most of tis will find
that we feel rather better for it.
There are plenty of times and occa
sions to be strong and tragic and re
morse, fear. anxiety and understand
in-o athe mi;eries and dangers come
to us unsought. Why not, then give
warm and laughing welcome when
frivolity come gaily laughing and
dancing otir way. hastening the pass
ing f the hours anld driving the dark
ness from them with the flashes of
light tnsteady but pleasant.
