a little matter very easy for
you to set right that is giving a
great many people a lot of trouble.
Will you please pick up after your
In the house you throw your hat
on a chair, your rubbers, one un

your books are scattered from one
end of the house to the other. When
you get out of your night-clothes you
leave them tn a heap on the floor.
You drop your bathrobe in another
As you hurry along the street
to school you toss the chewing gum
wrapper on the walk and the wrap
pings from the bar of chocolate fol
low after. The skins of the orange
or banana you took from the break
fast table are tossed anywhere as
you go along.
When you get to school you throw
anything you don’t happen to need
anywhere you happen to be. The
yards, so well swept before you en
tered them, are soon littered from
end to end.
Somebody has to pick up every
thing you throw down. That is not
fair. In this game everybody has
to pick up his own things so as not
to overburden anyone else. Of course
if you learned not to throw them
down, but to put them where they
belonged the first time, nobody will
be overworked and everybody would
be helped.
There is another side to it We
would not bother so much about the
extra work you gave us at home and
abroad if It helped you any. It does
not help you to throw things about
It hurts you. Disorder and dirt and
confusion are not the conditions in
which you can grow. They check
your growth. You do not feel har
monious, content, happy in the messy
place. That is why we try to deco
rate it and keep a cheerful, color
ful place. You need that orderly
beautiful quality in your surround
ings for your growth.
Every time you help disorder you
nurt yourself. There is always a
spiritual reaction to every physical
action. When you are careless and
disorderly In your habits your think
ing takes on this quality. What
you think, that you are, The way
of your doing becames again the
way of your thinking and round and
round you go on this whirling merry
go round of dirt, disorder and con
fusion. It isn’t healthy, It isn’t
childlike, it isn’t decent
Lift the weight off your mother’s
shoulders first. Pick up after your
self. Never leave a room without
looking back to see what you have
left out of place and turning back
to set it where It belongs. Never
drop anything where somebody else
will have to pick It up. If you re
form In this respect the whole com
munity will bless you. And you will
feel very much better inside and out
