Such people are to be pitied. Of all the people in 1 j ii -i luc worm iney deserve most our compassion. A fretting man or woman is one of the most unlove able objects in the world. A wasp is a comfortable house-mate in com parison; it only stings when dis turbed. But an habitual frefter buzzes if he don't sting, with or without provocation. Most men call fretting a minor fault, a foible and not a vice. There is no vice ex cept drunkenness which can so ut terly destroy the peace, the hap- oiness of a home. It is not work that kills men, it is worry. Work ...... i ' . i is uealtuy; you can naraiy put more on a man than -he can bear. The man who goes through the world grumbling and fretting is not only violating the laws of God, but is a sinner against the peace and harmony of society, and is, and of right ought to be, shunned accordingly. Let grumblers form a select circle by themselves. Let them herd together, give them the cold shoulder when they appe, and make them uncomfortable dur ing their sojourn. An Englishman dearly likes, says Punch, to sriimble. no matter whether he be right or wrong, crying or laugh ing, working or playing, gaming a victory or smarting undeL; a na tional humiliation, paying or being paid still he must grumble, and, m fact, he 15 never so nappy as when he is grumbling and would erunible at the fact of there being nothing for him to grumble about There are two things about which we should never crumble, the first is that which we cannot help and the other that which we can help.

FRETTJNG AND GRUMBLING. By w. D. Cowley. Many very excellent persons whose lives are honorable and whose characters are noble, pass numberless hours of sadness and weariness of heart. The fault is not with their circumstances, nor yet with their general characters, but with themselves that they are miserable. They have failed to adopt the true philosophy of life. They wait for happiness to come instead of going to work and mak ing it, and while they wait they torment themselves with borrowed troubles and fears, forebodings, morbid fancies and moody spirits, -tili they are all -unfitted for hap piness under any circumstances. In the domestic circle they fret their lives away. Everything goes wrong with them because they jmake it so. Even the common movements of Providence are all wrong with them. The weather is never as it should be. The seasons roll on badly. The sun is never properly tempered. The climate is always charged with a multitude of vices- The winds are everlast ingly perverse, either too high or too low, blowing dust in . every body's face, or not fanning them .as.Jney should. The earth is ever out of humor, too dry or too wet, too' muddy or dusty. Something is - s . 1 1.1 l 1 i I 1 1 .
