Thinking and Living.
TTOW progressively do you think?
XI We really live what we think.
do we not?
Whatever sort of vacation we take
next summer, we will think upon it
and plan It first. Whatever new Spring
clothes we will get will be a matter
of thought before we purchase them.
Tou see, our thinking has everything
to do with our living. If we only half
live, it is because we only half think.
So it behooves us, does it not, to con
sider how we think.
If we find our housekeeping monoto
nous and in a rut. is it not because we
are thinking in a rut? If we find that
in our business we are plodding along

is it not because we plod in our think

ahead this year than last, is it not be
cause we have not .thought ahead?
We can live better by thinking bet
ter. We can put interest and snap and
efficiency into our housekeping by
thinking new interest and .efficiency
into it. We can serve some new dishes
on the menu. We can plan our work
to save time and steps. If we wake up
mentally in regard to housekeeping,
there will be an awakening in the ac
We can, the most of us I imagine, do
some thinking in regard to dress that
will have a beneficial effect upon our
living. A new fashion season is ahead
of us. Shall we rush around and get
a collection of clothes that outruns our
pocketbook, that does not satisfactorily
fit our needs, that is not, in its vari
ous parts, harmonious, and shall we do
this at the behest of some unknown
power called Fashion; or shall we give
some thought to the matter and in the
light of rational thinking decide upon
an outfit easily within the scope of our
purse, that fits our actual needs, that
will not leave us at the end of the
season with a dozen or so half worn
out garments that cannot be made
over? In a word, shall we think out
this matter of dress to-suit our own
circumstances instead of those of ou
social circle or the pressure of fashion
We can go forward to happier condi

these, if we will think more vitally
about them. What we think spiritual

satisfied with our spiritual life then let
us get busy mentally and see what is
the trouble and search for spiritual
truth. When we get truth, we shall be

let us look inward and see if we are
thinking love. We must think love and
feel love before we can express love.
And when we give love, we get it.
This matter of real, genuine, hard
thinking in regard to our living is more
important than some of us deem. We
drift and live superficially because in
our thinking we drift and think super
ficially. We do not rouse ourselves to
think to some purpose and progressive
ly. We do not think ourselves ahead
of where we are either in our house
keeping, our business or our spiritual
concerns, and so we do not get ahead.
Try thinking a step ahead in what
ever at the moment most concerns you.
and see if you do not take that step
forward in your actual experience.
Why Donkeys Have Long Earn,
NCE upon a time there was a
queen who ruled over a kingdom
in India. But in the land there was
one great sorrow there was no child
to inherit the crown.
The queen grew sad and wandered
about her gardens weeping,, but one
day the fairy queen came and brought
a beautiful boy, which she placed in
a golden basket near the queen's bed.
So the baby was adopted and the whole
country made happy.
Everyone liked this arrangement ex
cept a big gray rabbit, which had
been the queen's pet for years. Bunny
was getting old now and was not as
frisky as he used to be when a kitten,
but he had also grown mean ana
One day the baby was sick, so ine
queen sent at once for the fairy queen.
In she came riding on a shell made
out of spun gold and drawn by two
humming birds behind a velvet cur
tain and at once understood what the
bad rabbit felt that he was angry
and jealous that the baby should take
his place in the queens affections.
'I am so worried," exclaimea tne
queen bending over the baby who
seemed in a fever, "can you not give
me something which will cure him?"
I do not think he is seriously sick.
replied the fairy, "bot I will give you
two bottles of medicine. This in the
golden bottle is a drink which must
be given him at midnight. But this In
the purple flask is a poison. It must
be used only by putting a spoonful in
the bath water. Now impress upon
the-nurse this important fact that the
colden bottle is the medicine, while
the other is a deadly poison, and only
to be used in baths."
Now, Bunny heard this, and a
wicked scheme came into his head
he would change the bottles and then
the baby wouid get poisoned and if
there was not any baby the queen
would take him back again as her pet.
"I can change the bottles," he said,
as he hid himself under the silken
curtains about the baby's crib, "if
that nurse dozes off in the night."
For a long time the nurse kept
awake, but about a quarter to 12 she
dozed off. Bunny crept out and put
the purple bottle in the place or tne
golden one, which he hid on the shelf.
Clang, clang struck the clock, sound
ing midnight The nurse got up and
gave the baby a drink from the purple
bottle, as she was sleepy, and did not
notice that the medicines had been
changed. Bunny lay awake expecting
to hear the baby was worse, but it
went back to sleep and seemed to rest
more soundly than before.
Just as the clock struck one the
door opened and there, in a cloud
of pink and crimson haze, stood the
fairy. In her hand was a long wand,
but the look on her face was one of
anger, as she saw on the table the
wrong bottle. Then from under the
crib's curtains she saw a rabbit's foot
"Come out from your hiding place,
you wicked Bunny," called the fairy.
And the rabbit scrambled out in ter
ror. "I saw you behind the velvet curtain
when I was telling the queen about
the medicine and I fixed up this way
to catch you. There was no medicine
in either bottle only pure water. But
I had an idea that you would try just
