Discontent is a human characteristic and a certain
amount greatly to.be desired. It is symptomatic of change
and of progress. Guided intelligently it leads toward the
promised land. Lacking vision and perspective, it in-
spires a blind chase after will-o-the-wisps into the dismal
swamps of anarchy.
Whatever progress humanity has made is due to dis
content. It differentiates man from the beast, and civil
ized man from savage. Had primeval man been contented
with ihs lot, we would still be living in the jungle. But to
be worth while, discontent must be constructive. When
destructive solely, it is fatal to progress.

me handsome pay: I wrestle with my
blooming lyre for eight briefs hours a

to have a Job I like; but all the other
boys have struck, and so I think I'll
strike . No stern oppressor grinds my
fii'ce with cruel Iron heel; to tryunts
in the higher place I make no vain ap

spirit Isn't sore; I have no grievance
, worth a cent, that makes me walk the
' floor. But I see all the striking lads
parade along the pike; they've quit
their work In all the grads, and so I
think I'll strike. I am the only man at
work In all this lovely land, nwho does
not find his labors Irk, who makes no
stern demand. I'm satisfied with what
I do, and with the pay I get; each day
I earn three bone or two, in damp but
honest sweat. I'm treated better than
a king, and life seems pretty slick, and
AS I sit around and sing I can't think
lip a kick. But I am lonesome all the
day, the one contented guy; the rest
have thrown their tools away,- and
they go marching by. I see them wav
ing bright red flags as up the street
they hike; and so my lilting labor
drags I rather think I'll strike.
