THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: FRIDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 22, 1895.
ONE WOMAN'S WORK. "Who having little yet hath alL" A narrow sphere! how can xou call it so? Three pairs ol baby eyes l$ok up in mine. And seem the gates through which a light divine Transfigures all my life with tenderest glow. Because 1 cannot paint with artist skill The changing colors ol the sea or sky, Eecause I cannot write of visions high. And move you all with pain or joy at will, Because to learning's shrine no gifts I bring. Nor take a foremost stand for woman's cause, Because I trust unquestioning the laws. That bring us snow in winter, birds in spring. You think my life is circumscribed and cold In what shojld make it helpful, rich and strong. Ah, friend I these happy days are none too long For all the loving duties that they hold. Nor has the art you love been all denied, For loveliest pictures every day I sea In childhood's careless grace and movements free, From waking morn till dreamy eventide. My Edith's braids, now brown, now golden bright, - Imprison tints no artist's brush has known; The baby's deep blue eyes, that meet my: own. In living beauty mock all painted light. Nor do you know, my friend, the critics bold We story tellers in the children find What store cf wisdom and of wit combined We need to point a moral new or old. And in reforms are we not learning late A still, small voice need not be all in vainF These childish hands may bring the greater' gain It I am willing now to simply wait. And what in science or philosophy Gin pass in interest the baby heart Seeking in untried ways to take its part For good or ill in life's great mystery? Gcd help us mothers all to live aright, And may our homes all truth and love enfold Since life for us no loftier aims can hold Than leading little children in the lignt. Emma E. Marean, in Woman's JourmaL A NEW CULT. i The Way a "Leisurist" Have TTs Live. Would ' I do not believe in eavesdropping as a practice, and it is only fair to myself to add that my disapproval is not based upon the selfish ground cited in the proverb. Still, there are times. For instance, you are in the most comfortable chair by the best window at the Monogram club. Two men come and plant themselves on a sofa within six teet of your back. Is it your duty to leave your favorite chair and win daw just to avoid overhearing1 an im personal conversation which happens to interest you? I didn't, "So you have given up the law, JSEalph? Why,: the last I heard you ware doing so well. Fine growing clientele, and all that. . The voice belonged to one of my fel low members, whom I knew slightly. "Yes," replied the other, evidently a visitor, "that was just the trouble. I w;as too successful. My work had be come almost confining. It's nearly a year since I cut it. Let me see; you've been in Chicago for over two." CiGreat Scott, man!" cried the first speaker. "Too successful! What do you want?" "Leisure, principally," said the stranger. And I heard him strike a match. "But .how do you ever expect to amount to anything?" J; "Don't, from your point of view; and, what's better, I don't want to." .. "W-ell!" "You see, Ned, I'm not a bit in sym pathy with the progressive spirit of the age. I think a lot of it has been progress backward, and when it comes right down to the real philosophy of living, we're not in it With our old friends the Athenians. Our only idea of amounting to anything is to scratch gravel every day from morning till night as long as we can drag ourselves ta our workshops; and our idea of sue-. cess is mainly to make a heap of money. Nobody but the slaves in old times worked as we do, and they just did it because they had to. So ration al free Greek or Roman would have dreamed of leading such a life for any motive let alone such an elusive one a ours." "Pray what do you calculate to sub stitute for work?" "Leisure." ; "And starvation?" ' "Not at all. Now here's my logic in a few words, you old Philistine. The great desideratum is to do as you please as nearly as possible and for this leisure is an absolutely necessary prerequisite. Therefore leisure must be the first aim. On the other hand, it Is evident that if you do as everyone else does, you won't -have any true leisure none at all, in fact, unless you steal it from the hours you ought to give to rest in order to brace j ou up for another day of toil. But why do you work so hard? To make money? Why do you want money? Ah, yes; to live comfortably, to amass a fortune, to retire finally and enjoy yourself, to be somebody. If your being some body' depends on the verdict of other people, or if even your own verdict is based upon how much money you have r 1 don't think such a somebody is much of anybody. The real somebody is the man who marks his life out on true philosophic lines, and lives successful ly the life he has marked out. The reason money has been taken as a touchstone is because it's the easiest tiling for the vulgar to estimate. Any fdiot can measure a man's success by the number of dollars he is said to have, or by the swell he cuts on them, but it takes more intelligence to meas ure by how happy or how wise or how virtuous or how honorable a man is. Therefore the vulgar count the dollars, and as the vulgar majority rules in these days of democracy rabbleocraey, the Greeks would have c lied it why, there you are. Besides, remember, even if you do sell yourself into slavery, the chances of buying back your free dom, and retiring and enjoying your self, and of 'being somebody' in your old age are less than problematical. The sensible man doesn't enslave him self in order to be ultimately free. He just stays free." "But how about living comforta bly?" "That's a fair question. It certainly does cost considerable to live as we've4 been brought up to call 'comfortable; but then if we're wrong on other fun damental points, why mayn't v. c be in this? To cut it short, I've found out that we are. Stop and think. Half the money we spend is for things we only enjoy indirectly through tlio im pression they make on other people; in fact, because they're fashionable and two-thirds of the other half go for 'necessaries' which our ancestors were just about as happy without. Don't understand me as despising luxuries. I enjoy them much more than do those who have them all the time; but I ob ject to the price. It's too big; so I've tried to find the equation. 1 look re spectable, don't I? I feel respectable, anyhow, and I assure you I'm perfectly comfortable. Well, on my honor, I av erage a little over three hours of work a day, and any man of ordinary intel ligence can do as well on as little." "What do you do?" "I? Oh, I write. What a man does doesn't make so much difference, though I admit my work is more agree able than most. Sometimes I'm not quite sure it should be called work." "And the rest of the time?" "I enjoy my leisure. I enjoy life. I read; I converse with congenial people on congenial topics; I. walk; I take lots of out-of-door exercise, and steer clear of nervous, prostration; I play tennis and chess; I go wherever then are beautiful things to see yon have no idea how manv are available, both in nature and art and I let them soak in and become assimilated with my be ing. I live." "Don't you ever expect to marry?" "If I do, the woman will be either a leisurist like nryself, or one who has brains enough to appreciate a leisurist. and money enough to indulge her taste." "But, seriously, old man, how many people to-day could enjoy the thinprs you enjoy? Your reasoning and phil osophy are worthless when applied to the mass of humanity." , . "They aren't intended to be applied to the mass of humanity any more than any other system of living at least not until the mass of humanity is educated up to where it once was. Th. cult may be a small one now, but its influ ence may be wide for ultimate good is bouud to be, by so much as it removes any man, if only a hair's breadth. from the crazy Philistinism that dom inates him." "Pray what is the name of the new school?" "Oh 'Leisurists,' 'Neo-Epicureans.' Either answers, and we answer to either. I'm not sure but that Thoreau ought to be our eponymous hero. He was certainly the leader of Neo-Epi-curean thought, and, like most leaders, he took rather too advanced a position. He proved his case all the same, though." "I presume, of course, you're pre pared to welcome with open arms the 'Weary Willies' and 'Dusty Ehodeses' of the humorists? I congratulate you. Fou've lots of ready-made disciples." "Not exactly. You see, the real tramp is either a laborer 'out of work and trying to find it, or else a loafer pure and simple. You must not neg lect to note the distinction between leisure and loafing. I rarely loaf." "Joking aside, Ralph, I realize, of course, that you've been just talking; but what a supremely selfish existence your Leisurists would lead!" "Wrong on both points. I was never more in earnest in my life, and my philosophy is anything but selfish not the faintest approach to the rabid sel fishness of your so-called useful pro fessional or business man, who jostles and elbows his way to the foot of the ladder and tries to scramble up it, heedless of bow many aching ribs and crushed fingers he leaves behind, and all the time flattering himself that he's doing his duty as a citizen of a civil ized community pah! Every man who can be dragged from your selfish com petition for power and money, whose aim can be diverted ever so little to more 'useless' occupations, is just so much accomplished for the benefit of humanity. Selfish! That's good." "By Jove! Do you know what time it is? It's after two." The speaker rose quickly. "What are you going to do this afternoon?" "Sayre is coming to take me to meet Penfold and see his 'Antigone.' He's just back from Paris with it, and they say it's great. Why not go with us?" "My dear boy, do you realize that, what with listening to your nonsense, I sha'n't have a chance to get my lunch to-day, and probably'll get home late for dinner into the bargain? No pic tures for me. Drop in and see me when you get a chance. I can always spare five minutes for you. Take care of yourself, and excuse me for running away." I glaEced from the corner of my eye to see a slender back and a thin head j of hair whi sk out of the door. Thenj some one else entered. i "Hello, Ralph! Ready?" cried the j newcomer. . "All ready. By the by, did you meet ', a slave as you came in?" "Who? "What slave?" "Ned llur.ee, to be sure. Poor devil!" And then I heard a low, contented, in dulgent laugh, and my Neo-Epicurean was gone.
