Advantages at Hand That Are Neglected DV KIJA WHEELEIt WIM.'O.V Aro you :i poor man or woiliaii, plty-| ing yuur_eii oecauso you aeo no hop< oi hctier conditions? Do you continuaily talk about the! Injusilcc of ihe rich to thc poor, tho' cruclty of monopolyi nnd thc holplcaa nesa of thc wagc-earner to better hls condition? BUt are you trying to better your condition? Are you ualiig every opportunlty to improvc your mlnd? Thc land i; full of froo. llbrarlea. You have at your ....mmand a hundrcd fold better opportunltlos to cducate yourself than Bcnjamiu Franklin or Abraham Llncoin had. You are no poorer. yet they obtalned oducation which onabled them to rlso In the world to thc hlgh positlons they occupled. They worked na liard as you work. and more hours a day. But they used every spare uiomcnt to flt them selves for better work. Are you doing that? Road somethlng which waa said recently by Wallace D. Wattles. It Is full of good sense. "The old saylng that lt ls no dls grace to be poor is only a half truth, in the truc scnae lt is really a dls grace to bc poor Thc Poor One- of llie World. "Nobody ls poor or having a hard struggle but (a) thc Ignorant, (b) thc lazy. and (c) thc incompetcnt. "This sounds harsh, and you are ready to go 'up in thc air' about It. you 'want to tel; mc that, thc tene ment dwellers and wage slavcs hnv no chance. and so on. "But walt a little. The wage siave* really own the world; they have cre ated lt all.an d they could take posscs Hlon of lt to-morrow lf they would. They can go ln nt any tlme. to use tho factorlc3 to inake thlngs for them selvea, Instead of turnlng wcaith out for their masiers. "But they do not do It. because they are (a) too ignorant to know that thls is their world; (b) too intcllcctua'.ly lazy to thlnk. and so discover that this is their world. and (c) lncompetent, i bcoause they do no: thlnk. "The masses are not in bondage to i anytbtng but ignorance and intellcct [ ual laziness; they can have what they I will if they will begin to think. "Thc masses will bo wage slaves &?> ! long as the 5-cent theatres are orowd [ ed and the publlc llbrarles descrted." j When the i liausi- IVuuld Come. When you stop to reallze how many ; more wage-earnera there are. how j many more employes than emplbyors. I it does seeni absurd to talk about the : army of workers belng kept down by the small number ofemployers. Should j the army of workers combinc in a I great united. determlned order, and de clarc co-oporatlve conditions were to take tlie place of tho present system of competltion. thc change would have to come. But the wagc-earners will not thlnk cbnslstehtly or with direct purpose or. theso topics. lt ls easler to complain and to seek for sympathy ihan lt is to use the brain in constructlve thlnking to im? provc one's situatlon. Again let me quole Mr. "Wattlos: 'The way to make people thlnk ls to talk weallh. "That is thc philosophy for the masses, "And tho _amc applles to you as an indlvidual. "lf tlie mass is not ready or willing to rlse, you do not havo to stay down with U: you can rlse above lt. "But you can never rlse above lt lf you keep talklng about yourself as be? lng down with it. "If you keep talklng about yourself as one of those who have hard times in getting along, you will continue to be one of those who have hard timoo j in getting along. "Don't talk poverty in any way; don't refer to il as exUtlng. "Talk wealih." ?Womun's Womlerful Iufluencc. And whilc you talk wealth, think and talk Qf the new condiilons which aro formlng about us every hour and l every day. Talk of the womlerful In ! flucnce woman is having on the world. ? and the greater influencc she will havo every year. An influenco for good;for justlce, for teinperance. for clcanllness, for order. Talk of tho tlmc when every city will bc made a clty beautiful?when thcrc. wlll be no pest holos: no evll j Ohlnalowns; no foul-siviellins tcno ments; no descrts; no inipassuble. places; but when there will be good roads, and cultlvalcd flelds, and lovely gardena, and spreading parks, and j homes and work for everybody. That time wlll come. It Is on tho j way. ; Read a littlc overy ovenlng and everv ! Sunday ln thc publlc llbrarles. Find out what Is golng on ln thc world. Fit yourself to occupy a better posltlon in tho better times coming. Amerlca is golng to show the whole world how order can bo brought out of chaos; how the problem of tho titi employod ean bo solved.

The girl's pormlttlng Pareys to ;ketch her hand and ara, to sccuro or her what _ho deslred ln tho way of telp for Lis, was thc first step toward he tragedy marking the elimax of the >tory. For. after year.-, had conie and ?ono without thc boy belng able to lollow up thc small advantage he had jalncd. and ivlthout Yetta's attalnlng o being anything more than a teach^r n an adjoining villago to Boldam, tho jlrl concluded to marry Pareys on :onditlon that lie allow her to fur lisli Lis er.ough money for him to go ;o Parls and pursue his career. Of ;oursc, LIs did not accept the money ;.-; charity. Hia was a simplo, ur.world y nature. ea3lly decclvod. He belicved he money to bo the price of hls home n Boldam. whereas |t rcprcsented ibout five times its value. So LIs doparted and renuined away for five years. At the end of that tlme le went to vlslt Yetta and her husbnnd n their beautiful home, not far from Boldam. He painted some wonderful dctures while he was there, landscpaes ihowing tho mauve-gray agalnst slate jray of tiie heath and the heather, vhlch always appeale'd to hlm moro itrongly than anything else. Tho pic tircs wero stolen by Pareys through lis valet, and exhibited ln the Parls ,-alons over tho latter's name, rontier ng Pareys Immediately famous. LIs, mving learned that Yetta was un lappy, and boing told by Pareys of he sacriflces sho had endured on hls behalf, remained sllent, though his leart was nearly broken. Ho refused thc moiu-y and medal vhlch Pareys offered him as compensa lon for hls picturea and began, slow y, palnfully, but surely. to reconstruct lis llfe and his life work on indepen lent lines. But the tlireads wore too :angled, and before belatod happines. ^ould come. hate prevailed. Lis went lo'wn to death because of it, but he ,vas loyal and faithful to the end.
