A Happy New Year Letter to All
In Heaven there are no grumbers?that makes Heaven, in Hell, they arc all grumblers- thai makes
Hell. Grumbling is the characteristic thai belongs to universal humanity. The first man in the Garden
of Eden had every waul fulfilled, had every privilege accorded to him, but the eating of the fruit of one
tree. He grumbled because he did not have that, and Iiis grumbling cost him Paradise.
The first thing a baby does is to raise a howl and make a kick. We are all born kickers: Nobody
likes Iiis business, no matter what that business is. To hear men talk, they are all losing money. The
dry goods man says business is not what it used to be, be is losing money every year; be wears fine clothes;
his wife wears diamonds; they own their own carriage, and have a cottage by the sea-side;?slill he is
losing money. It is the same with the doctors, the lawyers, and men in every profession. Then, the farm
er, the man you think would be content, is the greatest grumbler of them all. If the season is dry, "Wo
will not make seed this year"; if the Heaven pour abundance ami the barns burst, "We will not get any
thing for our stuff, there is no use having it." Nobody wants Iiis son to follow the same line of business.
There are grumblers in every vocation and location. There arc more grumblers in the home than anywhere
else. The man in business lias to be a gentleman:?al home be doesn't have to be anything in particular.
You say it is a bard lot to be shut up within brick walls, that it would be delightful 1<> gel off some
where and enjoy fresh viands and pure air. You go:?when you get there, the place is beastly, the peo
ple are the most vulgar you ever saw. the food is stale, the little room where they have put yon is an old
garret, and you just w ish you bad stayed at home.and so does every one else.
Everybody knows bow a work ought to he done, except the poor wretches who are doing it. Is ii not
strange, that as you improve, everybody else and everything else .seems to improve at the same time?
Here arc sonic prescriptions for chronic grumbling: Try to live right. The best way in the world
to be sweet-spirited and gentle is to live right. When David was not living right, he was ready lo kill
the man who had slain a little lamb; he himself bad taken another man's wife, and killed the man besides,
?that made him savage. Live right:?and yon will have the charity, Unit suffereth long and is kind.
Have the home as beautiful as you can make it. If you are a husband, praise your wife, praise her looks
even if she is rather homely. Praise her cooking though it choke you. (live her the same love-like at
tention thai you gave her when you were handing her in and out. sending bouquets and bonbons, and
writing her reams of poetry on gilt-edged paper. If you are a wife, praise your husband: fell him he
is the best husband you ever had, no matter how many you have bad. He careful of what you eat. lie
ware of mince-pie with a crisp on top, a sodden one beneath, and untold horrors between. Take plenty
of sleep. The world is going crazy for lack of sleep. It wants fresh, wide-awake people in the habit of
being thankful for what you have. When you are miserable because you have not something thai other
people have, think of the things they have you would NOT like to have. He like the old woman who
bad only two teeth, but said she was thankful that they were opposite to each other. I never pass a crip
ple or a blind man that my heart is not lifted in thankfulness that I have sound limbs, and eyes that can
see. Get into the habit of looking for sweetness and light. People usually lind just what they look for.
The Pee and the Buzzard hover together in the air; one goes straight to a rose garden in the distance; the
other to a dead rat a mile away. Look for sweetness and light and you will find it everywhere. Go around
expecting to get your feelings hurt, and you will always get them hurt. (Jet to work; get a move on you.
THE PEOPLE WHO ARE BRIGHT, CllEERFUL, AND HAPPY. ARE ALWAYS THOSE WIK) A RE
DOING SOMETHING WITH ALL THEIR MIGHT. Forget yourself. Try to make the world brighter
and better, give refreshing cups and bouquets to the dusty pilgrims along life's highway.
WISHING YOU AND YOURS A DALLY NEW YEAR PULL <>L GOOD CHEER,
i Sincerely yours.
