d'nt Mean To."'
Th two ways all of us do hard and evil in the world. Some of us do evil by planning and scheming. It is done viciously and with malice aforethought. The man plans to kill, and he kills a man. Another plans to steal, and he takes what does not belong to him. Another wishes to ruin somebody's fair and good name, and he slanders with a snake's poison in his talk. And all of us recognize these criminals by sight. We refuse to accept their excuses, and we use laws to punish and correct them, if possi ble. But what about the other man who does evil and wrong, day by day and year bý year, and offers as his only excuse, I didn't mean to?" His evil and wrong are very bad because people are not watching him, If he did mean to db wrong. people would be on the look-out and ward off some of his ugly hits. He is a donker, but we cannot excuse him be cause he has long ears. 1. Life is made up of meaning to do things. It is the inherent power of a man's will to MEAN to dbthings. To mean, to plan, to carry out-these are the pow. ere of mankind. This is what , makes him above the animal-if indeed he is above these brutes who are tossed about by their V passions and appetites. 2. A poor old man sees his children vagabonds and drunk ards, He is weighed down under kthis sorrow. All of us sympha thize with him and he needs our best help. But this man gave his boys money they did not earn t and tolerated in them vices for which he would have punished C other men's boys. His own neg leot and indulgence with his boys ruined them. And his only ex-t ouse ie, 'I didn't mean to ruin them." Is this enough and ought he to be excused? 3. The poor, weak drunkard who has ruined his own life and those who are near and dear to him, pleads that he didn't mean to do it. He just drifted into it little by little, glass by glass, bringing sorrow on all those about him. But he didn't mean to be a sot. I this enough, and ought he to get mad with the worde when it does not excuse him? 4. The difference between a man and a mouse, or a man and a donkey, lies in the power to form resolutions to have a Mean iug and tr live up to it' IEvery thing in this world his a Meaning or it is lost. The sailkr looks to the north star for its MEANING, It has one. but he must have a MEANING to match it. 5. To the serious iiian there is I Meaning in every day. in every plan and in every action. To the engineer every throb and Fsound of his engine has a Mean ing, and his ear is always listen ing to these sounds. And why not all of us keep our ears open to hear ,the Meaning of every sound and throb. of life. 6. Your wife cried one morn ing at the breakfast table, when it seemed to have no meaning at all. You thought it was her foolishness, but more than likely it had another Meaming-per hape it was your MEANESS. One day a child went wrong is more ways than it had been done before, aud you got all out of patience with; the little one. Search for the Moaning of all this. Why did he lie or steal. He either Meant to or Didn't imean to. In either case, he needs gerious love and attention. 7.' Can we tell now just what we Mean to do? Are we certain of our plans and their Meaning? The man who means to do a cer tain thing may fail once or twice, bnt he willuot finally fail, if he Means to do. But the man who Means nothing, and offers that donkey excuse, will not. do any. thing in p::rticular. You can bet on that and win your money every time. k a 5ship captain where he f. ' is going and in what port he Means to land. If he answers vaguely and says he does not Mlean to land in any particular P port, how will you feel about it T I have seen the time on the Med. o r iterranean Sea and the Atlantic E 8 Ocean, when such a captain E would have run me crazy in five n minutes. And that is just what Sthe man does who replies to his o accusers of wrong doing, " 0 Sdidn't mean to." E 9, But the world is blessed i with a few men who Mean to do things. They rise in life in spite t of persecution and envy and criti-. cism. They leave these critics behind, The people who are d needing and wanting a leader, follow this man, and they are n not deceived and cheated, for he is a man with a Meaning to do good and he does it. He may make a few mistakes, but he makes other things as he goes d along. e Starting a Parcel-Post Market For Eggs. a d There are in our cities and Stowns many housewives who would be glad to make arrange Sments for receiving .t supply of , fresh eggs dir ct fro,:t the farm o throughout the y. ar. Just at this ime, when eggs are ecarce and the demand far exceeds the jsupply of newly laid eg s, there is is a good opportunity for the farmer, even though he has but few eggs to market, to make con d tract with some city or town famni. - ly to supply them with eggs. Thi farmer's supply at the present time will not be great enough, C possibly, to satisfy the demand of the city family, but if the matter is explained it will be easy to nmake arrangements to market n eggs'by parcel post now and con t tinue to do so throughout the Ir year. In other words, it will be much easier to make arrange - meuts to ship eggs now, when ,everybody wants thorem, than to do so in the spring, when they Sare in abundant supply and when of the housewife can secure good, e fresh eggs in the market any. 11II where at a normal price. A sat Sisfied winter customer can be , made a profitable ill-year cus . tomer it proper price adjustments are made whent eggs again become t plentiful.
