It rains on the grass, it rains on the corn It rains on the oats and the wheal: And the frolicsome winds of the liapi May morn Are calling me from my retri I rush through the door and escaj from the gloom A fugitive haunted by CAKE. And hide in the sweets of the lilac bloom, Dark sorrows are battled there. "I want to (five you a brief motto," said a good old profess or iu a certain university to the students one morning in chapel exercises. When the rustling of tablets had ceased anil the uencils were poised, he said, ''It is this: 'LOOK CP. DON'T LOOK DOWN."' As I left the chapel that morn iusc, I looked up. I saw nothing but restless angry clouds and the mad countenance of ati approaching storm. I looked down, I saw a green meadow and happy bees wallowing among the sweet petals of fragrant flowers, and joyful little squirrels chasing each other about upon the grass. I said to ray cotnoanion, "Say, there is something wrong with the old professor's motto." "Why, what is it'r" said he, "See," said I, "when we look up we are depressed ly the sullen clouds and the muttering storm, but when we look down we are inspired by a scene of liuppy life and beauty," After a thoughtful silence, my companion replied, "Well, but when we took up we are turning away from the sordid world and are elevated by gazing on the sublimity of the heavens though they be cloudy. "Well, but the earth is joyful today," said I. "It is invigorating to look upon." Thus the argument con tinued and ended fruitless. Why? Simply because our viewpoints were incompatible. He was viewingthemottofrom an abstract and figurative standpoint, while I was viewing it from the concrete and literal. Had we recognized this fact our argument would have been pleasant anil fruitful. It would have ended in a productive compari son of thoughts. The old professor's motto is alright, but local conditions were such as placed it at a disadvantage from a literal point of view. Thus it is with a great many of our arguments on the Scripture, religion and politics. From incompatible viewpoints we try to drive each other to the wall, and batter one another about with our lopsided under standing until we both emerge from the argument in a damaged condition.
