Are you wearing a face around tnat looks like a frost bitten tomato, or are you getting a smil<$ from the world in re turn for the one you wear on your own countenance? Perhaps you’ve the wrong idea of what constitutes happiness. Maybe you’ve got hold of the wrong receipt. If so, it is time you were wearing the three es sentials of joy. Here they are: Health, Cheerfulness and a Clean Conscience. We didn’t say a word about a whole lot of money or a big name. We had a reason. Of late there has been such a chase after these lesser blessings that the real sunshine has gone out of people’s lives, and the i ich have been the poorest among us; our great men have been our real paupers. Not that wealth and position and fame are not commendable things to achieve, but when in return they ask you for your health, ye. r cheerfulness and your clean conscience, the price is too much to pay Don’t you ever take a look at any of those old fellows who brag that they have never taken a vacation? Isn’t it the best ar gument in the world for the pe riod of rest and recreation? A man who is a slave to his busi ness is like a machine that can work only on a treadmill system, “down to work and back to house.” His wife had better have a phonograph and an auto mobile. The phonograph will talk to her and the automobile will take her somewhere. And say, if you’re going to envy anyone’s line house, don’t covet a Fifth Avenue mansion. Such homes have been turned over to the architects, and are mere hotels. The home to envy is the little cottage on the quiet street that was planned by the heaven-blessed couple that live there. There is a heart in a home like that. The chances for happiness are really against the high and mighty. The kings and queens have been the playthings ol ages, j But how the sunshine does love | to pour into the humble home! j What a world of joy there is in i the clouds and skies, the grasses j and the trees for the hearts that are not spoiled for them! And then, somehow, souls are cultivated better out in the open air. The commonplace man, if he is not seared, can almost look into heaven every day. But the man with his nose to the grind stone of business, the woman aching for social prestige, and the misguided, seeking after fickle fame, all too often are de prived of the anthems of nature. They are self-centered and too absorbed in earthly frivolities to enjoy the gifts of God. Ah, better a cabin home in the forest of sunbeams. *-• I have several head good mules and j horses for sale.
