1 AM NOT one of those who believes

his wife "a 17-year-old lass raised on a
hay ranch." I do not belief successful
marriage oomes from sfch . unions.
There must not only be love, but there
must be love that is founded on com
radeship. To have comradeship we must
have community of interest There Is
a great chasm between passionate love
that springs Into flame after a few
meetings and the love that has its foun

every woman yoti meet knows of the

In the Pinkham Laboratory at Lynn,

thousands of (letters from Women seek

to become a mother. She wasn't old
enough to be tied down to "housework,

Little girls who have been shut up on
hay ranches need lots of recreation,
run, when they come in town. Little
girls of 17 were never meant to take
up the heavy tasks that wifehood and
motherhood attaches. They must be
treated like little babies themselves.

Written for The Journal by Gra ham
IT is possible to pay too high a prioe
for the good things of life, no mat
ter how much satisfaction they may
bring us. This is especially true in
the case of purely material delights.
The temporary pleasure we derive from
them cannot compensate for the ills
that they may bring if the joys they
afford us are experienced at the cost
of physical hesJtii or spiritual strength.
Only the other day another master
mind of the financial world was re
moved from this sphere ef activity, and
the unanimous-verdict of the press was
that he had "worked himself to death."
Like Harrlman, he had undertaken re
sponsibilities that were beyond the limit
of any One man's strength, and as the
natural result nature had rebelled,,.
Of course, looking at such a life from
the strictly material point of view, the
feats that this man performed were
phenomenal, and he will probably long
be rated as one of the world's success
ful men.' It is an open question wheth
er this success was as genuine as it act
ually appears, however. We are put
into this world to live our life not for
the mere-purpose of accumulating a
storage vault full of stocks and bonds.
A mere dollar-and-cent viotory Is a
pretty poor result .to exhibit as the
product of a lifetime of labor and ex
perience. An if. in addition to this,
the money has been made by the sao
rit Ico of all that is highest and noblest
within ourselves we have still less of
which we can Justly feel proud.
Life la too high, a price to pay for
any temporal success. Work that
must shorten our days Is not profitable
work, no matter how big the pay may
be. So long as we know that there is
a limit to human endurance that there
is a bound beyond which mental and
physical strength cannot, go without
danger it is our first duty to keep well
within these limitations. i
And If there Is one fact In life , of
which we are certain it Is that physical
health demands a reasonable adjust
ment of each 24 hours that they may
include a proper amount of sleep and
recreation as well as work. It Is right
that we should aspire to succeed. It Is
right that we should try to make
money. It la right that we should be
eager to perform worthy tasks and that
we should aspire to bear great respon
sibilities; but to do all this we cannot
afford to neglect the other side of our
nature, and when the demands of work
become so great that they must shorten
the hours of sleep and Interfere with
the time that we should otherwise spend
in developing the mental and spiritual
sides of life, work becomes a menace
and no financial reward can compensate
for the price we may be called upon to
pay for the, privilege of violating these
