Father Linden's Letter.

aen baa addressed , a letter- to t he

, Then Father Linden continues by
telling this average father of the av
erage boy some conclusions that have
been reached by the clergy in their
study of the boy problem and what
though he might feel them iruide
Some people who are not actlvly
engaged In the ordinary pursuits of
life spend a great deal of their own
and other people's time imposing
upon their fellow beings fads and
fancies of their idle brains. Like
mushrooms, these fads and fancies
are born in the morning of light and
die in the night of darkness because
they lack the substance of Intelli
gence and the foundation of sinceri
ty. Somewhat, and perhaps largely
because of our painfnl experience
with such people, a good many other
people are now prono to discredit al
bost any movement born of the
brains of sincere men whoe sole
purpose Is the phyclcal u:.d moral
progress of the human race.

"Say. Dad. what are you gotng to
