"ProfeMlon" or "Trade" Havo Little
Distinction Without Certain Im
portant Differences.
It Is contrary to human Instinct to
b9 Idle. Some naturally prefer the
good and llvo to bo useful. Others
evilly inclined. If useful at all, are bo
by compulsion In order to live. Be
tween these extremes nro tho carclefs,
or discouraged, who work only to get
tho means of a living. -
Wa would not bo misunderstood as
moaning that, to bo a professional
man, one must work for nothing, de
clares a writer In Power. Neverthe
less, tho truly professional man who
deserves tho dignity of that classifica
tion makes his chief concern tho good
ho can do. He is more anxious to be
useful than rich.
Common acceptance of tho term
makes all clergymen, doctors and law
yers professional, but, more Is the
pity, somo In their ranks forget that
tho mission of Bervico Is fundamental,
tho acquisition of wealth Incidental.
Just as thero aro these exceptions
among thoso supposed to bo of these
professional classes, there are many in
tho humbler walks considered to be
long to tho trades, who caro more to
excel 1n their lines than for anything
else. They havo a pride In their work
and will do as conscientiously whether
their wages aro high or low.
Wo submit that the real distinc
tion between profession and a trade
Is the spirit In which it is usually fol
lowed. Viewed in this light, your vo
cation Is the one or the -other accord
ing to whether you engage In it for
what you put in It, or what you get out
of it In other words, whether yon
work for the love of It, or for tho
money It brings.
Recruit May Not Have Been Alto
gether In the Wrong as to tho
Upper Furnishings.
The German recruit was being
drilled in" military manners a most
Important branch of the art of war as
practised In the Fatherland. For one
thing he had to be taught how to be
have on tho street whom to salute,
ana when, and all that sort of thing.
Tho method of Instruction was to
have the novice walk up and down tho
court yard of the barracks, while from
this corner and that non-commlssloned
officers kept popping out suddenly and
saying "I am a Royal Highness," or
"I am the Military Governor," or "I
am the Master of the Royal Dachs
hunds," or the like exalted titles.
Thereupon tho appropriate salute had
to be given.
Everything had been going on very
well until a mischievous corporal sud
denly planted himself "before the re
cruit and said, "I am a Royal Car
riage." The recruit marched straight
on without taking any notice.
"Why didn't you salute?" yelled tho
sergeant In charge.
"I beg your pardon," stammered tho
recruit, "but I was under the impres
sion that the carriage was empty."
Sad Sights In Mexico.
I saw beggars everywhere In Mexi
co, many ot them tanged alongside the
church soliciting alms from worshipers
or from passersby. I saw tho signs of
ignorance and general depravity. I
saw wounded men and suffering wom
en. But the worst thing that I saw
in Mexico was a little six-year-old boy,
badly crippled, who was compelled to
walk on his hands as well as his feet,
because his lees weren't Rtrnnr pnnnli
to support even his frail little body.
He looked like a toad, but his face was
gentle and sad. Ho had big black eye3
that seemed to search one's soul. Oc.
caslonally he would stop as ho crawled
along the street, aud look at his torn
fingers and hands the streets wero
made of gritty little stones that cut
his flesh. If only somebody had pro
vided him with cloves! But thla u-n
Mexico. Nobody seemed concerned
nuoui mis lime fellow, Ho wasn't a
oeggar. Ho made no appeal for money.
He was just a little boy who needed
friendship. But "of such is tho king
dom of hpaven." Christian Herald.
Touching Appeal.
A literary critic called one day to
see a friend who was trying hard to
ostabllsh a reputation as a novelist
"Read that!" said thn nnvpiut
thrusting a manuscript into his guest's
nana. 11 s my latest short story, and
I want you to tell mo what you think
of It."
A few minutes later he was sur
prised to ceo his visitor, wiping tears
from his eyes. "My dear chap, this Is
really the most pathetic thing you've
over donol" Bald tho critic.
"What!" gasped tho author. "I
wrote it as humorously as I cnnMi"
He looked nt the manuscript "Oh, I
see; it's my mistake. I'va ?lvnn vmi
tho wrone thing. That Is my letter to
tho !ncom tax commissioners asking
for a rebatn."
Keeping Your Word.
Tb following quotation from Do
Morgan's "Whon Ghost Meets Ghost"
may help a few to see the moral Issue
more clriarly. Mr. Jerry began, feebly:
"Yoo can't do more than keep your
word. Ma . . ." Mo, a flno olt$ex-prize-tighter,
"Yes, you can, Jerry. You can keep
your meantn'. And you can do more
than that You can keep to what tho
other party thought you. meant, when
you know. I know this time, l ain't,
In a court o' Justice, Jerry, dodgin'
about, and I know when I'm square,
by the feel" !
Easily Elucidated.
"Johnny," asked a little miss of her
small brother, "what Is a wldowor?"
"I'm surprised at such ignorance," re
plied Johnny. "Anybody ought to
know that a widower is a widow's
Not a Matter of Wages.
"No person can lire properly on less

But some persons wouldn't llvo prop
