Van Dyke says of life, "We are on a Journey. Our
life Is a movement, a tendency, a steady, ceaseless prog
ress towards an unseen goal. We are gaining something
or losing something every day. Even when our position
and our character seem to remain precisely the same,
they are changing."
It Is an Interesting definition to give of life, do you
"9t think?
A good many of us regard life as a grind, a struggle,
a condition of suffering or wretchedness thrust upon u»
without our volition and from which we cannot escape. We growl at It or
rail at it or shirk, because, we say. It is none of our doing that we are here.
And we go out of It having gained little from it but unhapplness.
But suppose we consider this other view of it for a while. Let us see
whither this will lead and what results it will bring. For we know that m
tree Is Judged by Its fruits.
For one thing, to view life as a Journey, a Journey that le taking us
orwrd Into the new and undiscovered, puts a new face upon life, does
t not, a face of Joy? Each day holds forth glad hands to lead us to new
experiences, new acquaintances, new work, new results in old fields of
endeavor. Today Is never the same as yesterday. There Is freshness for
us every hour if we will see it. There is always change. And if our mind
be not filled with some unchanging thought, purely of our own creating,
of bitterness or resentment or indifference, we will see and share this change
and growth all about us.
Taking the view then that life Is a Journey, how can we make sure
that we are going in the right direction, that we are not, even perhaps
through sheer Ignorance, heading the wrong way, that we may be taking
itepa Backward or downward, which if progression la the ultimate end, we
must retrace.
The labels "Right" and "Wrong" help some; but with others these
labels carry no authority, no ability to guide. And sometimes, these labels
are merely a matter of personal opinion or prejudice. But can we not
apply a test of our own? Is not life constructive? If it were destructive, It
could not be life. Therefore, those things which are constructive, those
things which have no element In them whatever of destructiveness must
be life, must mean progression. So that anything that is destructive in any
way—to the body, to the character, to the work we are doing, anything that
will make us to retrogress Instead of progress, cannot be life.
Doesn't this give us a sure standard to help us forward, and one that we
can make our own?
But to some life is dark and hard and dreary for other reasons. They
iay they are chained to one place or condition, that there is no Journey for
them. Even to these, every day is a new day with new interests, new por
tions even of old tasks. But there is more than this that is new. For there ]
is new hope. And hope Is great fuel for the Journey of life.
Feed the body with hope and no matter how chained it may be by
disease, every little cell will respond; and some day there will be a new
body with which to go forward. Give the body the view of life as a bright,
Joyful Journey to something always new and interesting, and it will tug
at Its chains until they are broken and It bounds forward, free.
And no matter how fettered we may seem to be by the work In hand,
how It may seem to shut us In, view life as a Journey, and Insensibly the
faculties will take on fresh vigor. With the thought that by the very
nature of the life that is in one, he must go on, he can't stand etill, there
flows through one a vitalizing energy that quickens every part of his being
to better endeavor. The work in hand is done better. This brings advance
ment. And thus life proves Itself. The thing In it that calls for progrès*
brings progress.
And so will life viewed as a Journey with the standard of what llf«
la. In hand as a staff, will not life give us more Joy and brightness and
Irorth-whlle results than If we look on It bitterly, resentfully, as an experi
ence that has nothing for us but ill?
Cape for the School Girl
THE simplest of wrap» both for chil
dren and grownups happens to
be the strongest feature of the new
fall styles. This 1b the cape. It was
Inconceivable that It should be devel
oped in ao many variations of shape
»nd combinations with other gar
ments until the fact wag apparent
Xow we hare long plain capes cover
log the figure, half length and three
quarter length capes (some of them
In combination with other wraps and
nearly always detachable), and other·
that are short and used as a touch
Of style on coats. So that the cap·
may be accepted and used in any way
the Individual chooses.
Λ pretty cape for a school girl Is
■bown in the picture. Such a simple
fc&rment is easily made at home, and
(iothlng conld be better for the cool
idays of autumn and the long Indian
Bummer. This cape U made of a
father heavy woolen fabric in a fancy
yeavtt which looks like a wide wale
ibevlot. Any of the standard woolens
afe appropriate for these capes, and
ψβ shall see them In serge, broad
cloth, Cheviot, Scotch mixture, home
; spun and various novelty weave·. The
old reliable «tapie colors, dnrk blue,
brown, gray, and the dark r«da make
the beet choice (or children. The
capes are lined either with plain mate
rial or with stripes or plaide.
When tbe home dresnmaker under
takes to make a cape she should pro
vide herself with a pattern in order
to get the adjustment over the shoul
ders a· It should be. Some capes
flare more than others, also, and the
finishing at the neck varies, as do the
methods or fastening.
It would be difficult to Ond a mort
desirable model than the one pictured
her·. It )· so managed that it mar
be fastened up about the throat, when :
required, by buttons and loops on the
under side. Straps crossing In front
bold It In place when it Is worn opsn
at the front, as shown In the plotnre.
In keeping with the fad for salt
hats, caps to match capes or other
wraps keep pace with the times, The
cap shown In the picture is a type
illustrating this fashion. Patterns
for this and for Tame and for elm
pie cloth hots are sold by all stand
