the measure be kUled.

Biblical statement that a day is from

Doctor Atkinson is a great believer
in cheerfulness; he believes cheerful
ness is a habit we can cultivate as
well as the ability to smil?; and that
grouchiness is also a, habit as well as
the inability to smile; that whichever
habit we cultivate is the habit which
will grow, and we will get a resulting
crop of happiness or unhappiness ac
cordingly. Many of us are like an old buggy
which goes on squeaking and groaning
for want of a little axle-greaae.
And the same mental condition
causes us to notice only the freckles
and the warts on our neighbors faces,
forgetting all the rest of the complex
ion. We could avoid many of the hard
knocks we get if we were habitually
cheerful, for the world never hits' a
cheerful face. We should cultivate the
habit of saying 'good morning" and
of looking as if it were a good morn

A monkey can't smile, why should
