WILSON wnnnnnw I am sixteen year? old and a stenott rapher. Every Wednesday evening aev eral girla whom 1 have known ?ver ?Ince I was a child meet at one another*? house? and we ?II knit and chat. Laat Wednesday, while at my home, we were all criticising each other'a faults, and when It cam? my turn one of the girl? ?aid: "Dorothy haa one great big fault, and that 1? that ?he sympathize? too much with hereelf." Now. Mrs Woodrow, this astonished me a? well ?s most of the other girls. For a few day? I could not help but think, about It, and I am ?till thinking abolit it moat of the time, and I am ?orry to ?ay that 1 found out It waa the truth. But I am very despondent now, for I do not know h?w I can ever overcome euch a thing. I'leaee write an article on the care for ?-If sympathizer? and greatly oblige a girl who i? much worried over a very eerioua fault. Very gratefully your?, DOROTHY M. DKAR DOROTHY, I do not think you had a very nice party I know that when one Is six ten, one can enjoy almost anything, but I can easily Imagine a more en tertaining and amusing, not to m? ntion profitable way of spend ing an evening than attending a sort of mental clinic and ruthlessly dissecting the poor, shrinking, quivering faults of one's self and one's friends. Self-Pity. Effect of I am sure all of you girls thought you were being helpful to each other, as well as showing great personal heroism when each of you took the criticism leveled at you stoically and good-naturedly and determined to profit by It, and then nerved yourself up to the point of administering the same treatment that you had received. But we can only Judge of the efficacy of any thing by- its resulta, so let us con sider the effect? of thia noihing but-the-truth causerie. Every girl present on that Wed nesday evening was probably af fected by this searchlight of criti cism very much as you were and by your own account you were at first astonished at this new and unflat terlng picture of yourself, and then It filled your mind to th?? < x rlusion of everything else. You thought It over and over. Vou con sidered it from every angle. Then came the painful realization that It was tho truth. Now I ask you, did this clear up the whole thing for you? Not at all. It merely produced a feel!ng of despondency, which was fallowed by discouragement. And that Isn't the worst of It. You are still wor rying over It, and making your self unhappy. You are pacing yourself so much for pitying your self, that you are quite miserable. The cure, my dear, is simple? so simple that yo" may treat it with scorn. Vou may think I am taking your perplexity lightlv. and talking down to you in a superior, there-llttle-glrl-don't-cry way, be cause you are very young. I as sure you that I am do?ng nothing of the kind. I am giving yon the one real remedy for your bother. It Is this?f??rget It! What If you are ?nrl'ned to re gard yourself ga Imposed upon and 111 treated now and then-1 ?'uch irr-ag'n'ngs are not penal o-Vnses And whv should you expet to be exempt from fat'lts, wh?n t^ey flourish In such rank and untrim med luxuriance In most of us? Don't Ho Like Early Pnrltr-na. The early Puritans had a dreary pastime over which they wasted much time. They called It examin ing their hearts for hidden and un clad traces of evil. Tha *** suit was that they got a horrible onvlction of having committed omething they called The Unpar ?ionable Sin, and they frequently .-?aw the devil In visible form, which appallng apparition some 'imes frightened them Into fits. If you want to look Into your own heart, look Into It to discover how full It Is of laughter and goad will, how great is Its Joy of Ufe; and If Instead of these pleasant and agreeable things, you see nothing but faults, slam the door of that heart quickly and run away out into the sunshine and fresh air. If you go about with the Idea that you have one great, g'aring fault which everyone is likely to notice and condemn and that you must be constantly on the lookout tc keep It from showing Its hydra head, you will be self-conscious, ehy and ultimately one of those re pressed, suppressed beings who add nothing to the gayety of nations. You would not have written to me If you had not believed that my knowledge of human nature, life, and the world Is greater than yours. Toti being only sixteen, 1 ha%e no hesitation In saying that It Is. Therefore, I reiterate what I said before; Forget that you hive n ten dency to pity yourself. If you find yourself moaning about th '. way some one has treated you, laugh and regard 1' as nonsense And 'lie next time you and your frtends meet, for goodness sake take up the inter esting topic o? each other's charms and virtues. The Rhyming Optimist By Aline Michaelis. YOU may be so ultra busy that that your speed will make men dizzy; you may have a flock of flatlrons In the Are; you may head a corporation; you may may run a vast plantation; you may be a ripping artist on the lyre. You may work as bill collector In a bustling city sector or each day you may cavort upon the field, making earth a blooming bower, gay with corn and cauliflower, while your nifty little noe you nobly wield. But whatever Is your calling, be It hustling, loafing, stalling, you have still another line upon the pide. You may never think about It, you may flout it, you may doubt It; but you'll ind rhat this is true the whole world wide. Far, Indeed, are we from hinting that In with your frenzied sprinting as you work with zest to bring the bacon home, you'd have time for flnanceering, shooting craps or bunco steering; In such avenues belike you would not roam. But at banking or at hoeing you are al ways sowing, sowing, however lit tle heed of it you pay; seeds of tears or seeds of laughter for the fellows who come after, you are sowing these around you every day. You sow many a simple pleasure, little things for friends to treasure, or It may be you sow bitter seeds of pain. But howe'er the wind Is blowing, you are ever busy sowing, sowing seeds that make life's sunshine or Its rain. Yes, the field whereon you labor Is the heart of friend or neighbor, and the seed you sow you never can recall, and 'tis pretty well to study seeds you scatter for yo'ir buddy, for this side line's st Important of them all.
