Idea of the difference between bis own life
and the llfo of every mnu who lives In tho
city and helps to carry on the world's Indus
trios. He does not rcnllzo that there nrc
very few men of all tho millions In tho cities who follow
their own will. When ho understands that ho will under
stand better bow tho dslre for Independence Is ono of
tho factors that draws men Hack to tho country. Inde
pendence Is ono of tho dreams of tho city man. Hut It Is
a dream with most men that never comes true. The con
ditions of llfo nro such that the dcmlrn to rest mul breatbo
closo to the fields and woods cannot bo realized. Tho
rich man Is often so enamored of bis money mid tho
prospect for more that ho waits Just a llttlo longer, until
death overtakes him still In pursuit of tho dollnr; the poor
mau cannot rIvo up bis work for a day, or If he Is In
slightly better circumstances he wants to be Just a little
mora sure ho Is making no mistake In giving up tho days
of being bossed for the era of doing as ho liken. Happy
tho man who can always live n Ufa of Independence, but
happy also tho man who while serving others can llvo In
Independence of mind and spirit and lead a slmplo and
useful life. That does not depend upon environment, and
It contemplates no control of others or by others. It Is
the domain Into which others cannot enter, and It Is ab
solute In Its possibilities for happiness wbatovcr the
stress of life whero business holds swuy. Most workers
must tako their happiness as they go along, without ox

The day of the ponderous polished essay In the pulpit

THE BAY-WHEN SERMON.
Ili:Ni:Vi:u you think 1 have preaclicd long

wilt Immedlutuly iiuuounco tho last hymn. It
Is not ulways possible for a preacher to tell

would bo grateful for suggestions. You will
not offend mo by calling time. Say when and
Ko said tho Itev. Charles Clarkson of Dotrolt
to his congregation.
Ho Is u wlso parson who knows w.en to milt. This
preacher evidently wants to pnuich the gospel so that It
will stick In his pcoplo's minds. He can't do much to tired
minds. Therefore bo must gauge his sermons to suit.
Tho tendency of all public peech Is toward condensa
tion. Tho IMwnrd Everett style of oration belongs to
tho stago coach era. This Is an electric ngo demanding
electric speech. Hrevlty Is tho soul of eloquence nowa
days. Tho direct, nervous utterance Is the speech of the
busy day. And Ilobcrt 11. Ingersoll, If ho may be men
tioned In this connection, did as much as any public
speaker to fix tho condensed style, the short, simple words
of modern oratory.
The same tendency Is seen In the Inter newspaper edi
torials. It was a great shock to the literary folk when
Arthur Ilrlsbnnu began to write editorials on common
every day things and cut but all tho long words. Hut
that stole of editorials bus won out.
If the pulpit Is to keep In touch with the times It must
adapt Itself. The modern nudlenco Is quick to catch on.
Tho preacher need' not spend iiiimvpsinry words to tell
the old story of lovo and sacrluYe. And only tho spenker
of unusual charm Is able to bold an audleuco longer than
8fi or 40 minutes.
Hefore nil else the future mau of the pulpit must stay
by tho gospel themesthe themes that touch men's hearts
and hopes. He must hnvo something vital to say. And
bo must say It without unnecessary rhetoric. Thn mau
MOST MABP.IAGES AP.E HAPPY.
WIFT'8 saying that the rcuson why so few
murrlugcs are happy Is tliut "young ladles
spojul their time In making nets, not in mak
ing cages," Is doubly outrageous. In tho first
placo It Is an outrageous begging of tho ques
tion. The testimony of less cynical observers
lu our day and country Is that most marriages
tiro entitled to bo called happy. In tho second placo It
outrageously puts the whole blnino for unhappy mar
riages on tho female partner, contrary alike to probability
and to fact Hut at rcast as many of tho marrlagos are
failures In which men "chooso" their wives, or think they
do, as In cases lu which men becomo the prey of their
own Imaginations. And there Is this to be said from the
point of vlow of reasons In favor of murrlugcs with which
reason has nothing to do. In tho first months of married
llfo tlicro aro necessarily very many differences to bo
adjusted nnd small Incompatibilities of ways of thinking
and feeling to bo reconciled. That, as nil experienced
spouses know, Is tho trying period. Mnrrlngo Is like life
In thut It Is a school wherein who so does not learn must
suffer. Now, to diminish tho friction of this trying time
no better lubricant could Misslbly bo provided than tho ro
mantic love, which cannot be expected to last forever, but
which may very probably outlast this greatest necessity for
It of tho early connubial period. When the glamour of tho
romanco "fades Into tho light of common day," and a real
mau and a real womnn takes the place of tho creatures of
each other's fancy, and passion cools Into at best tho
teuderest of friendships, both parties are better off, nnd
will acknowledge themselves to be better off because tho
romance has been. "In erring reason's splto" till man

PERILS LURK IN THE OLOTnES BRUSH.
IIK brushing of dusty clothes In the living
rooms of the household Is opimsed to cleanly
sentiment, apart altogether from tho evil to
health which, as the bacteriology of dust dis
tinctly Indicates, might oaslly bo cuused by
tho proccHS. The Imagination does not re
quire to ho stretched very far to rcnllzo thnt
the clothes brush might be easily responsible for tho dis
semination of dlsenite. Dust Is rarely, If ever, free from
micro-organisms and among them pnthngenlo entitles have
been recognized. Hunt Is, In fact, un enemy of tho hu
man rnce, n vehicle of dlsense, nnd should everywhere
ami on every occasion, however trifling, bo prevented ns

Tho clothes brush Is a vigorous dust producing agent,
nnd slnco Its uppllcntlon Is Indlspensnbln It should bo

tho bentlng of carpets remote, ns they siould be, from
human habitation, so nlso ought there to bo In n house
hold conducted on hygienic lines a special room relegated
to tho brushing of clothes. The bnmhlng of clothes Is, In
fact, a clumsy nnd an unsanitary procedure, which might
with ndvnntnge be superseded by some more effectunl awl
less offensive method. The uso of some kind of vacuum
brush for the purpose would, sanitarily speaking, Ik
