Labor is somewhat like virtue in
one respect—it is its own reward.
YVhoever would be happy, must
know what it is to toil. One of
the sweetest things in the world is
rest, and none can rest who is not
weary and heavy laden, Jesus
Christ was a busy man, and ten-
elevenths of his life lie devoted to
manue I labor, and the one-eleventh
to giving forth whal was the best
part of bis life. Mark shows what
a busy life be led while he was
healing the sick and teaching man,
but Christ knew bow to rest, and
his cureer shows how faithfully he
subscribed to his faith in the laws
of the physical being by ceasing
wholly at times from his ardous la
bors, and going apart to be alone
and at rest. This was no doubt tq
him one of the great privileges of.
would Know what the world is and
and wbut life is worth, must know
whatft is to work and what it is to
rest. A good many of the rich are
supposed to be enjoying life, when
in fact they are deprived of the
pleasures of the rest, which the
poor man earns, but which the
rich cannot earn unless he work
for it. Idleness is not rest, and
youth is mistaking life who imag
ines the doing of nothing is a boor
in itself. That is rust. It is mor
al stagnation, and breeds disease
and death. The worker is the
happy man. Society people find
life u burden because they make ar
tificial pleasures, and will not sub
mit themselves to the genuine
pleasures of nature’s plan of toil
and rest- God make us all to be
Bad management keeps more
people in poor circumstances than
any other one causes To be suc
cessful one must look abend and
plan ahead so that when a favor
able opportunity presents itself he
is ready to take advantage of it.
A little forethought will also save
much expense and valuable time.
