HEN I wrote this 1 could heat
the sound of a chisel and a
hammer and an air riveting macbli
wielded by the workmen construe«
an apartment building nearby.
■"Doesn't that noise nearly kill you?"
asked a visitor «s the sounds pierced
the air. t admitted It was not as sooth
ing as some things I could mention,
bot added that It did not Irritate me
nearly as much as the goise made by
the wrecking crew While tearing, down
the building that formerly occupied
the same site.
According to all traditions and leg
ends the noise should upset me. 1
presume It would If It were not for
the fact that I know they are build
ing, and that the hammer, which plays
a quick, light march, and the chisel,
which makes a little pizzicato, are
constructing, not destroying. Then I
recalled how thrilled I always had
been at the sight of a Labor day pa
rade, where every muscular son of
toll represented construction. Whether
be was a master workman or an en
tered apprentice, he was a builder of
homes, churches, schools, bridges or
something that would promote civi
In contrast I recalled another pa
rade which I had been Invited to wit
ness from a grandstand seat. There
came hack to me the cheers and ap
plause of the throng as the youngest
and strongest of our country swept
proudly down the gayly decorated
avenue. The finest specimens of man
hood In onr land, all physically per
fect. and every mother's son of them
trained to be a killer of his fellow
man. And somehow the noise of the
derricks which told me of rebuilding
did not seem as nerve racking as the
crash of falling bricks and mortar
which bad come to me when the old
building was being torn down.
It Is the noise of destruction that
annoys me. . The noise of tumbling
bricks and mortar, of boards being
ripped from their moorings. While I
listened to the noises which accom
panied the polling down of the old
building I found myself thinking of
those soldiers ! had seen In that pa
rade; They were going forth to face
the noise of destruction, of guns and
howitzers, of exploding shrapnel shells
and bombs. All destructive.
Now since they have started re
building. the clear, ringing noise of
the hammer and saw seemed to soothe
rather than annoy me. A new build
ing was being constructed. The world
was moving ahead. The noise has a
sort pt harmony. There Is a musical
"clink, clink" of the trowels, shaping
bricks Into regular form. I am not
able to see the workmen, but the
qnlck, deft strokes of fine steel In
skillful hands seems to Inspire me.
They are building homes In which
families will live, home ties be footed,
children will be bom and love will
pWMto tB Perhaps its wall will
shelter the architect of a great cathe
dral or some other great man. But
anyhow they are building.
Aaid I tried to picture some of those
baft flu bid ttgtenfd to K»r of guns
and the bursting of shrapnel shells—
and had come back uninjured—work
ing on s that new building. I like to
think of them fts captains of indus
try—those boys who had been trained
to kill. I like to think that the band
which had been taught the use ol
destructive weapons had been relieved
of that responsibility and could now be
turned toward the constructive work
of wielding haibmers and saws.
The man who hullds Is the only man
who pays his fare In life's highway,
the man who can roll together two
little balls of dlft; making a stronger
one; the man who can lay one plank
npon another, so that It will hold
another's weight; th-> man who can
push a stone beneath the comer of
a bouse to hold the structure ; the
man who can put two words together
and send an idea winging on its way
is a builder. Everyone can be a
builder. Whether we build by a word,
spoken or written, or a deed,, we can
Every man knowa whether he Is a

George Meredith who said, "Men who
think in terms of lifetimes are of no

life he does not build well."
