BETTER THAN SPANKING.
Spankiug does not cure children of bed wet

would do it. There is a constitutional cause for
this. Mrs. M. Summers, Box 544, Notre Dame.

“That Simple Life.”
What and why is the “ Simple Life?” Mr. Wagner has devoted more
time to describing it and giving reasons why than any one, and has written
a book, the sales of which have no doubt enable its author to more com
fortably live the simple life.
Investigation forces one to the conclusion that the simple existence is
within the reach of the rich only. It is a shame that they should have a mo
nopoly on even this. On the surface it would seem that wealth would pre
clude the simple life, but not so. A poor man can’t live it—he can’t afford
to. Picture a poor man in your own community starting out on this line.
If he works enough to keep himself decently clad and sufficiently fed, his life
will crowd close upon the strenuous. If he quits work or works only occa
sionally and casually, he will be ragged, out of credit and will be called lazy.
The simple life can not without reproach be lived by this class under the ex
isting vagrancy laws.
The man in the country with some twenty thousand dollars, and in the
city with one hundred thousand; with a wife whose tastes run to the simple
life; with the money placed in stable investments, can live upon his income
and not be criticised by the neighbors—and is close to the simple life; but
how dull it will be at times!
The tramp is your true simple liver. He toils not, neither does he spin;
and as to raiment, he is a close second to the lilies of the field.
The trouble about the simple life is that it requires so much attention to
smooth it up and polish it off properly that there is no time left for anything
else. Probably no existence is simpler or more placid than that of the oyster.
Personally the oyster is not socially inclined, though he is gregarious in his
habits, and is not inclined to roam about. Living, as he does, within sound
of the manifold voices of ocean, and being, as would be supposed, responsive
to its moods, now of mighty power and now of sunshiny calm, the oyster life
might well be one of earnest and active endeavor. But alas, the kindest de
scription applicable to his life is that of philosophic calm. When the tide is
in he opens up for business. If anything edible comes along- with the water,
he appropriates it. When the tide goes out, he puts up his shutters and
business is over. Open and absorb, close and assimilate. There we have the
short and simple annals of an oyster's life. In oysterland the simple life
finds its highest expression.
True, occasionally an oyster furnishes a pearl as his life work and as
an excuse for living; but is the pearl sufficient recompense for having lived
an oyster? The pearl may gleam among diamonds on beauty’s breast, but
the oyster doesn’t stop there.
As yet no man in active life has worked out a system of really simple
living. “Father”—a gentleman recently made prominent by a popular song,
comes nearest doing it. He is, from all accounts, a philosopher and idealist.
He is a smoker and cares not from his own fireside to roam. He is content
to let the naughty world go on in its devious ways while he trusts serenely in
the triumph of the fittest, and conserves his energy in his ingle-nook. Even
in his case his simplicity places his wife and daughter under the necessity
of performing certain manual labors connected with the renovation of apparel.
Many unkind things have been said of “Father.” His motives have been
impugned and his character assailed. Soon Father, the only simon pure liver
of the simple life, will have resumed the white man’s burden and returned
to mingle with his fellows in the rude pursuits of the work-a-day world. Soon
we will hear of him, in company with an inquisitely shaped pick-axe, delving
in the earth preparatory to laying gas-pipes, or perchance he will be placing
in position the hard, unfeeling cobble-stone. Alas, poor Father! Sic transit.
There is a lot of lost motion in this talk of the simple life—and when
you find a man living it, get him to show you his books. Figure up what it
costs to live it, and then just get the results. There’s nothing to it.

It is our duty, with regard to temperance, to elect men that are known
to be in sympathy with our movement, to see to it that in the local elections
on the question of prohibition no place is lost, and to put into our county
offices men that will enforce the Watts and Ward Acts.—Biblical Recorder
