Soldiers' Schools In

three schools called Occupational

typical. The men are taught Eng
lish, spelling, composition, arithme
tic, community civics, basketry, weav
ing, knitting, and leather work. The
object is to occupy the mind, afford
exercise, and assist in the recovery
of health. Incidentally, the work im

A SECRET SANCTUARY
TN EVERYBODY'S heart, screened
from the gaze of intimate friends,
there is a secret sanctuary to which
he or she retires when the outside
world becomes irritating and over
You may call your sanctuary the
place of dreams, or the refuge of rest
and reflection, but whatever name you
may give it, there are times when you
like to retire to it and be alone with
your tho ?hts far from the turmoils
and haunts of men.
It is in this retreat that the soul
finds Its comforter, its better self and
its nobler faith.
It is here the beautiful flowers of
thought are watered and kept in the
sunlight, jealousy screened from in
quisitive eyes, meddling tongues and
You may retire to it in the mid
night hour when the world is still or
when the storms are rattling the case
ment and the rains are beating against
the panes, but whenever you visit it
you find the tranquillity you crave and
the new strength to help you carry
your heavy burdens.
Courage, hope, ambition and resolu
tion are nursed back to life in this
asylum and given a new meaning.
Fear of poverty, loneliness and even
disappointment in the failure of some
long-cherished plan, lose in this sacred
spot their uncouth forms and poison*
Hearts that were breaking under
hard strains become normal again and
function with their customary vigor,
though perhaps with less dependence
To review ourselves in this sanc
tuary is to make ourselves better,
more patient, charitable and consid
erate of our fellow-beings.
If we searcn our souls, scan our
follies, frailties and shortcomings in
candor, we emerge from the solitude
with less selfishness and envy.
It is through these dear intimacies
with our ragged conscience that we
find the truth, get our bearings and
thus discover whether the path we
are plodding is taking us to the right
or wrong destination.
The impulse which prompts us to
visit our hidden sanctuary is that
which will in time make of us better
men and women, better qualified in
every way to help ourselves and to
encourage and assist others.
(Q. 121 by McClure Newapcptr Syndicate.)
ONE must be a pessimist, let him
keep his pessimism to himself.
It is sufficient to make one's self
unhappy without loading gloom on the
others in the world. There always are
more reasons for gladness than for*or"-
row, and if one cannot*"find happiness
for himself he's an ungrateful and un
kind individual if he tries to take the
gladness away from his fellow men.
In a big city rooming house, a life
weary man, previous to trying suicide,
penned a note in which he said:
"The world has grown corrupt. It
is no decent place to live In. One has
to be a thief, a whisky runner or in
ebriate else he is no good any more."
A poor excuse to remove himself
from this life of sunshine and gladness.
But he had even less excuse for un
loading his pessimism to disturb the
lives of thousands who. are finding this
a pretty good old world in which to
The man didn't succeed in removing
himself from this life, and when he re
covers it is quite probable that hell
prize his breath and the privilege of
living more than he ever did before.
But hem only do so when he engages
some of his time and attention in the
task which belongs to everyonethat
of making the world better, more beau
tiful and its Inhabitants more happy
and thankful to their God.
No one can answer the question
without a lengthy thesis as to how fast
the world is growing better. But no
one can delve into history even a little
without admitting that most people ab
hor sin and are more ashamed of sin
ning than people were not very long
Thomas Edison, while camping with
Henry Ford and H. S. Firestone re
cently, said that "Every man will re
vert to barbarism if given half a
chance." But he contended that civili
zation is gaining, though he estimated
that 15,000 years would have to pass
before man "will have reached such a
high point of civilization where he can
not, or will not want to go back to the
So you see we're moving in the right
direction and following the right path.
Then let us forget our complaining
and not block traffic for others with
foolish pessimism, for there Is need of
more optimism to bring the chariot of
happiness through successfully, even
though we're engaged in a tortoise

A SPLENDID SERMON
By E. W. Gilies
Mr. A. preached a splendid ser
mon. He stuck to his theme so close
ly as to make it apparent that every
thing he said was relevant to it.
His illustrations and citations were
311 from the Bible or from history or
from other authentic sources, and so
appealed to the people in a real re
ligious way, rather than sounding
smart or funny or fishy.
He did not preach at all in the
way of self-praise or in condemna
ion of others, but set forth great ap
pealing principles that gripped his
audience and produced results.
