Better be prepared for it

doctor about keeping Ayers

Then when .the hard cold or

6. Bach County Superintendent,

says McCalrs Magazlno for Jnnu
ary. Is It not, on tho tho contrary,
tho peculiar power of womankind
to be most darkly discouraging or
most brightly encouraging, accord
ing to ihcr temperament nnd the
environment sho may consciously
or unconsciously weave around iter
self? Is It not Well for ono nnd nil

Tho discouraging woman begins
with tho sunrlsa by complaining
"I don't foal at nil well to-day;

am suro It's bolng to bo nppondl
cltls. In fact, wo must send for
the doctor nnd got roady .for an

will tho children do without me?"
and so on. How docs tho husband
of this type of woman begin his
work-day, think you? Is ho equip
ped with tho courage and confl
dcncii that do so much toward in
surlng success? Then" lator sho
pursues; "Children, It is going to

The discouraging woman meeta a

Hor cook has left, the baby is alck,

Outside the homo In business
perhaps the discouraging woman
Is equally depressing. Every ef
fort that a co-workor may mako is,
to her way lof thinking, a mistaken
ono. She foresees failure in nearly
everything. Sho Is eternally pull
ing down, and subtly impeding
overy endeavor from tho simple
lining of a missionary box to tho
planning of a suffrage campaign.
The discouraging woman thinks
that her doctor knows nothing or
is deceiving her, thinks hor pastor
hopelessly inefficient, her friends
disloyal, hor tradespeople dishon
est, her household help Incompe
tent, her husband far from being a
success, her children downright
failures. She not only thinks or,
rather, Imagines these things, but
she Is prone to voice them Indis
criminately in whatever company
she may be. How depressing In
