* THOUGHTS OF "THINMER."
* * * * * * * * * * * *
Mr. Editor: In the very beginning,
let me insist that you do not give me
an inch of space which belong to The
Idler; his artiales are too good to be
curtailed or crbwded out in prefer
ence to those of inferior quality.
I have been a deeply interested ad
mirer of The Idler since he first got
"busy" with his pen, for the pleasure
and benefit of The Herald and News
readers, and although most people
"save the best for the last," I invar
iably turn to his column first.
We all need sympathy, kindness,
cheer, fellowship, and a "thousand lit
tle delicate courtesies," as we go
along the dusty road of life. Unceas
ing ministry is the daily bread our
hearts hunger for-not great gifts and
large favors, but gentle affectionate
ness which brings satisfying inspira
tion, comfort, uplifting hope and
strength. 9i these, and more, The
Idler has 'extended without discrim
inating favor, to every reader of The
Herald and News.
The writer wishes to thank The
Idler f6r his many bits of wisdom and
philogophy-for beautifully expressed
thoughts-grand in their simplicity
and sincerity, and for gems of poetry
many of which have been carefully
clipped and filed away, labelled "Pre
served Sunshine for Dark Days."
I. believe that The Idler's dream
will be realized; that he will get that
park. And no name could be more
appropriate than "The Idler's Park,'
which, after he has lain down to his
last sleep, should be honored by a
magnificent monument to his memory,
bearing this inscription:
"Not himself, but the truth that in
life he has spoken,
Not himself, but the seed hat in
life he has sown,
Shall pass on to ages, all about him
Save the truth he has spolien, the
things he has done."
The Idler. is wrong though in think
ing that Uncle Eli alone, was puzzled
over his request to Mr. Wright for an
"off-night for Eastside."
.Many good people discu.ssed the
subject, but after careful thought and
sober reflection, few would seriously
accuse The Idler of selfishness-and
these few are undoubtedly afflicted
th torpid livers-hence, mind dis
n&must be pardoned.
lieve that the way a written ar
or in fact anything) affects an
ual, depends almost entirely on
or her innate constitution, tem
ment and mental attributes.
tmust be that Uncle Eli laid The
ler on the dissecting table, on the
pulse of the moment, and without
-e for careful gialysis or diagnosis
of The Idler's su4posed disease. Sure
ly Uncle Eli, who'is geemingly entire
ly devoid of jealousy, prejudice and
selfishness, would not otherwise have
noted the symptoms in another, since
-"As a man thinketh in his heart, sc
Uncle Eli evidently has literary in
clinations and-aspirations. We read
his. "ebulitions" with surprise, won
dering who he could be, and why he
had not spread his wings long since.
The Idler should take comfort add
consolation in the thought, that he
has- been the means of introducing a
genius, to an appreciative public.
Hope Uncle Eli will write again and
often but he should modify his state
ments a little-for instance, "An in
vitation to Uncle Eli would meali
est End!" And of course he will
p new subjects, or some one will
'ician, heal thyself!"
11, as The Idler can't get
ch at night (though we have
a illy lighted city) why don't
you c over to Willowbrook your
self, an eli tell him all about it?
Our park ad Mr. Zach Wright's
heart abe ~oth large enough to hold
all West, iAd and Eastside too, and
every one is heartily welcome to en
joy this beautiful place. We are ex
pecting a graid time on Sa.turday
evening-and a larger crowd than
Mr. Eugene Werts, one of our most
highly respected politicians, was with
us last Thursday night. He is one of
those rare specimen whose smiles and
affability, outlast electioneering sea
son. And that reminds me-who is' tc
