^^^^^^^^ HOW TO GET THINGS DONE
Ab good a fable as old Aesop ever wrote is tho one about the family of
larks in a harvest Held. The mother lark, being called away from home on
buslneHS, left word with her young ones that they should listen carefully
to everything they heard, and report to her upon her return; for she knew
that it was near harvest time, and that their pleasant homo was in danger
from the Bcythc. When she came back from her Journey she found the
family in u high Btate of alarm. They told her that the farmer had come
into tho field with his two Bons, and, noticing the ripeness of the grain,
had said to them: "Wo must cut this grain tomorrow. Go, therefore, and bid
out good neighbors to come and help us."
The mother lark only lnughed and told her children to have no fear.
"But," said she, "note carefully what may be said while 1 am gone tomorrow."
Upon her return tho next day, she found her family again in a high
state of excitement. "The farmer came again," said they, "and said to his
sons: 'Sec, tho grain is still riper and our neighbors have not come. Go,
therefore, and invite our relatives to come, each with his scythe, and help
us tomorrow.' " So the young larks pleaded with their mothers to let them
llee for their lives.
But the mother only laughed again, and said: "Do not 1)0 alarmed, hut
'?steil once again for what they will say today."
That day the farmer canto again and said to his sons: "I perceive that
neither our neighbors nor our relatives can be counted on to help us. Tomor
row, therefore, we will bring our scythes hither and cut the grain ourselves."
When the mother lark heard this, she said: "Then, my dears, we must in
deed bo going: for if the farmer and his sons have determined to do the work
themselves, it will no doubt he done at once, and our home will be destroyed."
Oh, that was good, sound, nll-vvool-nnd-a-.v ard-wide, common SCUSC, based
on a perfect know ledge of human nature. That wh o old lark knew, as wed I
as you know, and I know, that the man who gets tilings done is the man who
stands ready to do them himself.
As wlso old Ben Franklin put it: "If thou wouldst have a thing done, go;
