A RECORD IN POLITICS
A STATUE TO PASTEUR
THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE
PRAISE FO R THE MOVIES
The Presdent cast his first vote
in Northampton, was elected coun-
cilmin there, long ago. and has been
stadily in office ever since, nominat
ed nineteen or twenty times—never
beaten. A record in politics as pood
a» Cromwell’s in war. Cromwell
never lost a battle.
The old farmers would observe
with pleasure that being President,
with $75,000 a year salary, a White
House and a big yacht have not
spoiled Calvin Coolidge. Next March
he will move from the White House
to Northampton and resume life in a
small house which he rents for $32.50
I have received a very pitiful let
ter from a woman out west
She has had a hard time all her
life. She has raised three children,
who do nothinp for her support. When
hre husband died he was found to
have been improvident and left her
no money. She has pone stone deaf.
On top of this she has just had u
very serious operation in a hospital.
She can see no way out. Nothinp
presents itself to her but continued
sufferinp. privation and dependence.
She is about ready to pive up. What
should she do?
Why pive up?
Of course it is difficult for any
one in comparative health and well
beinp to pive advice to Miff ere rs.
One is always open to the imputation
of beinp supercilious. It is always
easy for hte philosopher to bear the
toothache patiently when some one
else has it.
At the same time, at the risk of
beinp called hard names, I repeat
the question, “Why pive up?”
I Suppose you do pive up. W ill
! life be any easier to bear?
It is just as well to look squarely
at the alternative.
When some one told Tolsty that
irony kind, virtuous, and honest
people had a very hard time, he re
plied: “What about those that are
unkind, not virtuous and dirfionest?
Look about you. Do the people like
that whom you know have any easier
The Church in the Middle Apes is
often accused of beinp very cruel.
But what about the people outside
of the Church. Were they any less
Life may be hard at best, but it
is easier and pleasanter all around
if we keep a stout heart and do the
best we can under the circumstances.
Whatever may be in store for this
woman, whatever deprivation and
sufferinp, we oan be sure that she
will pet alonp better if she meets her
fate bravely and similinply and does
not pive way to despair.
Whatever happens to us we are
better off if we battle on and keep
our chin up.
Despair is nothinp but a bop. a
quicksand, that enpulfs the soul. It
leaves us no spirit with which to
When a Persian soldier told a
Lacedemonian that in battle the Per-
ian arrows would be so thick they
.irould darken the sky, “then,” said
the Lacedemonian, “we will fight in

Such a man is not dependent on
money. But the President could
save plenty of it. More thnn one
law firm would be plad to punran-
tee him three times his Presidential
salary. And he would not have to
work hard. Perhaps the President,
