THE CURE FOR WORRY.
Live One Day at a Time and Take
Short Views of Life,
W. J. Dawson in New York World.
Worry is one of the worst curses
of modern life. I say of modern !le.
not because people a thousand vears
ago did not worry, but because as
civilization advances men become
more highly strung. more sensitive
and less capable of detachment. Thus
we often say in a very expressive
phrase that a thing "gets upor. our
nerves." Something distressing hap
pen to us, and we cannot shake it off.
Some one treats us rudely, harshly or
unkindly, and the word or deed rank
les in our minds. We think it over
till it is magnified into a grievous and
intentional insult. We take it to bed
with us, and no sooner is the light put
out than we begin to recall it and turn
over in our m nds all the circ-in
stances that occasioned it. We sleep
feverishly. haunted ali the time w:th
the sense of something disagreeable
We wake, and the accurs2i thing is
sill -ank1ng in our minds. This is
one frim of worry, ' which is very

Another form of worry is the tend
eacy to brood over past e:rOrs. The
business man or ihe public man is
.suddenly everwhelmed with the con
-viction that he has made an awful
mess of things. The worst of all ea
lamities is the lack of energy to grap
-pie with calamity, and in most cases
it is *orry that breaks down a man's
A third and perhaps more common
form of worry is the gloomy anticipa
-tion of future calamities. There are
-some men who, however happy 'Ehey
-may be today, are perpetually fright
- ening themselves with the possibilities
-of a disastrous tomorrow. They live
in terror. When actual sorrow comes
--apon us most of us discover unexpect
-ed resources of fortitude in ourselves.
.it nothing sickens the heart so much
as imagined sorrow. Of this form of
-worry we may well say, "It's wicked!"
I have no doubt that most of my
'readers know by experience what
some of these -things mean. No doubt
.also many of them have many real
causes for anxious thought, and they
