For instance— When we go to church on Sunday the preacher tells us of the beauti ful side of life—and we aro uplifted. As we walk home from the house of God we deplore the destructive influence of the frivolity and scandal contained in the daily press—and we are exalted. When we have surrounded a good dinner we grab the columns of moral filth that we deplored a few hours ago—and we are human again.
