Talks UNEARNED MONEY. Btlnjamrin ,lutsser, a merchant, who in herited .52,l) from the estate of his broth er, has dclined to ac.cent the legacy for his own use I1l1f of it he has allotted to charitable Institutions, and the other half he will giv~ tI relatives In explana tioni Mr. Fluss'4 'said: "I .~';nt to earn with my own ten fingers at filnoney I get. I don't want anybody else s lontty, and for that reason I ant giving the legacy away."--News Item. Good for Flusser! Hie wa\:lnts to earn his own money. In his case the word "enrn" lmeans what the dictionary says it dtes: "To merit or deserve, as by labor or service; to do that which entitles one to a reward, whether the reward is re ceived or not.' How many men or women would do what he has done? How many men and women would fail to see In inherit ed money anything but a windfall-a gift to be received gratefully and 'pent theerfully ? A wise man is Flusserl He knows that the only money that brings real satisfaction is the ;money that is earned by rendered service, by duties performed. It is the money that brings good to others, as well as to the sse.sor. He was legally entitled to his broth er's muoney? Of course, but the spirit la the man made him feel th.t he had not earned it; that it would bring with It something of the taint of depend wlce, something that might vitlatein a degree the taurdy self reliance which dwells in his soul. "le an get for myself whatever mon y I want"' says Flusser. Good for him, again! In his ten fingers and in his brain he his the tools wherewith to dig money Ir himself from the .mine that lies all around him. "Flusse. . is not a distinctive "Amer 3len" name. Quite possibly (t do not iow Fl'luser, but I should like to Cake his hand) beh 'i the first of his tanlly in: Ameica.rl But his is the spirit of the American plaeers who made this land of oucs.

Iuorn in the slime of London's n streets, the world hIas learned lesso s d of asl' sicrifice and devotion. The SMlarchioness had her home in a damp basement, blut she made therein an ex:tinlple of caheerfulness and content. It is amazing to think :fith how lit Stle sunshine amd happiness the humanl plant can bloom into beauty and love. Perhaps the same plants. If brought e out into the full sun of prosperity. would wither in the heat. Perhaps. knowing more of kindness and hope, .o they would fail to respond. Who ai knows? t- In the swamp, where the rich vege a tation grows lush, there is little sun it shine. It is obscured by the great growth of the trees. In the human swamps the sunshine is hidden- by the t trunks of greed and selfishness and in y cotisideration. y When the marsh is drained and the it trbes are cut down there is better life. e There is eust, as much vegetation per tiaps, but -it gets' h better chance to ý. grow and to develep. t When a human savamp is drained by d the forces of :love and klidness and h mutual helpfdulness the human vegeta I. tion can grow into healthy .life, a Hew away.,at ,the trunks of the ob h scuring trees. If you cannot -cut one down, at any rate you can make a gash il the bark that shall serve as a guide to the man with a nightier artm and a keener at. So shall the human morass be cleared and the beauty that Is found 11 even there have a better chance for life. THE GA .

Most often we get scratched. The wildcats scratch us just as they have maimed others. There are no exceptions. In the safeguards thrown around humnn perils, in the words of advice of older and wiser persons than our seleves. In the teachings of our own experience. we see the cages which confine the wildcats. We thrust our hands into thetm at our peril. For every wildcat which besets hu man life there is a cage of somee sort. For ages :and ages men and women have been building these cages, brae lug them with the bars of experience. locking them with the seal of wisdom. Why. then. do men thrust their hands into cages? It is the taking of the chance that does the mischief. It is the spirit of adventure in the human breast. Rightly directed, the spirit scales the moun tains and stands in the sun of glory and honor and hope. Misdirected, the spirit prompts the human to tempt the wildcat. If you are scratched don't blame the beast. Put the blame where it be longs-on yourself. JOHNNY APPLESEED. Johnny Appleseed has been dead six ty years and more, but his work, it not his soul, goes marching on. In a very literal sense Johnny Appleseed plant ed good seed, and the ,,fruit ih still growing. It will be well for us all it after we are dead we leave behind so much good as that done by Johnny Apple. seed. He had a hobby. It was the grow. ing of apple trees. He loved the ap ple. and he wanted Others to know it and love it as much as he did. So he went about the country plant ing apple seed. and from that he got his name. Many of the apple trees in the middle west are direct descendants of the trees planted by Johnny Apple seed. A goodly fruit Is the apple. Johnny Appleseed lived in a time when there was strife between the1 I whites and the Indians. But the red men knew him and his work, and it is recorded that they never molested him. man." Up and down the land went Johnny Appleseed. without thought of reward, planting good. He camet to his :death wheh going to look after some of his trees which had been damaged by cat tie. Why not emulate him? Not in planting seeds of apple trees. for there are men Who know more than we do about the trait. But we may all set out trees of truth and lovtl and kindness and service to our fellow men that shaltl grow after we our selves are laid away underneath them. We need not travel up and down the land as Johnny Appleseed did. Each in his own community may easily fnd planting room for-the seeds of good. Io shall the landbe covered with the good fruit that the hungry may eat and be flled, that the weary may taste and' be. re eshe.
