If. Fred, you will take your
Carlylo down from tho sholf, and
turn to the Lectures on Heroes,
Johnson, you will find a splon
did example of grit. I will
quote, "As for Johnson, I have
always considered him to be by
nature, ono or our great English
souls. . .One remembers always
that story of tho shoes at Oxford;
tho rough, seamy faced, raw
boned collogo servitor stalking
about, in winter season, with
his shoes worn out; how tho
charitable gentleman commonor,
secretly places u now pair at his
door, and the raw-boned sorvi

near, with his dim eyes, with
what thought pitches them out

frost, hunger or what you will,
but not beggary. We cannot
stand beggary! Rude, stubborn
self help here: a wholo world of
squalor, rudeness, confused mis
ery and want, yet of nobleness
and manfulness withal. It is a
type of tho man's life, this pitch
ing away of the shoos. An orig
inal man not a second hand,
borrowing or begging man. Let
us stand our own basis, at any
rate! On such shoes as wo our
selves can get. on frost and mud,
if you will, but honesty on that."
Hore is splendid grit. It ro
minds one of Beethoven's con
stantly reiterated, "Man, help
thyself!" or Confucius' "Use the
light within to guide you."
You will find many men, Fred,
when you know the world, who
are little other than parasite?
and who have actuully lost tho
knack of providing for them
selves. Their sole idea of pro
gress is to get through tho world
by hanging on to some one, pas
sing, like a sheep tick, from one
host to another, entirely without
other than egotistic caro for
quustions of social life, and pos
sessed of a cold-hearted inuiffer
once for the weal or woo of those
who have served them. They
entirely lack the grit to earn
their own living, and yet have
an entire lack of appreciation of
kindness done them. A little
adversity sends them to swell
tho ranks of the tramp army,
and if intellectual insanity does
not soon claim them pauperism
will be their destiny. Impress,
Fred upon the mind of every
man. whosoever he may be, you
may meet, that a little good
sound productive labor is as nec
essary to the moral man as din
ner to the physical. Work is tho
condition of existence in this
world, and he who has not the
grit to do a little is useless 'in
this world, and should try the
next. An inviolable law of the
cosmos is that he who will not
put his hand to tho world's work
should not be allowed to put his
mouth to the world's bread.
I remember, when at college,
a set of boys becoming so onam
oied of study that morning, noon
and night was devoted to mental,
moral and mutual improvement.
une evening a proiossor was in
vited by thorn to take tho chair
at a debate upon somo queer
psychological puzzle. At tho
close of the evening tho profes
sor complimented tho boys upon
their work, but remarked scath
ingly that much of their senti
mentality was shallow cant. Ho
then very seriously said: "And
boys although it is vory laudable
to cultivate tho artistic tempera
ment, I would impress upon you
fellows tho importance of some
work ot the hands. I note with
regret that the old pigeon house
is a melancholy wreck, and allow
me to obsorvo that a pigeon
house built by the eight mem
bers of this psychological socioty
would bo useful as well as novel.
Try it boys. 'Whatsoever thy
hand llndoth to do, do it with all
thy might.' You have tho grit
to tackle metaphysical knots,
just show your grit in tackling
physical knots. Learning with
out thought is labor lost; thought
wltnout labor is perilous." And
tho pigeon house was built.
Weadmire grit in a Columbus,
a Pizarro. a Cortez, a Cromwell,
a Washington, -and a littlo
thought would teach us in what
tho grit luy, nothing else but
self reliance. Each ono was pos
sessed of a sublime confidence in
himself. Each refused to iinl
