chain of these actions and reactions.
We are bound by them, we are en
compassed by them; and we can no
more escape from them than we can
fling ourselves beyond the influence
of the law of gravitation, or refuse to
be trammeled by the all-embracing

me to realize that the man who spends
all his earnings is slmplv anti solely an
asset to his relatives. Enable me to
get into the cheerful frame of mind
where today always looks fair and
bright, where all the disagreeable
things in the past are forgotten and
where the future does not assume a
vastly overrated importance in the

”As we laid the poor fellow tenderly
on the hospital cot, suddenly he be
gan to stng Tennyson's ‘Crossing the
Bar,' to Sir Joseph Barnby’s beautiful
