T"V O you find life amusing In
U those days? For my part, on
the whole, Jt swung rather do
nresHlntr. nnd I fiar that mr
opinion is not altogether personal. As
I observe the lives of my contempo
raries and llHten to their talk I find
myself unhappily confirmed In the
opinion that they do not Ret much
pleasure out of things. And certainly
It Is not from laek of trying. Hut It
must be acknowledged that their suc
cess Is meager. Where can the fault
Somo accuse politics or business,
others soclul problems or militarism.
We meet only on embarrassment of
choice when we start to unstring the
chaplet of our carklng cares. Sup
pose we set out In pursuit of pleasure.
There Is too much pepper In our soup
to make it palatable. Our arms nro
filled with a multitude of embarrass
ments, any one of which would bo
enough to spoil our temper. From
morning till night, wherever wo go,
' the people we meet are hurried, wor
' ried, preoccupied. Some have spilt
their good blood In the miserable con
flicts of petty politics; others are dis
heartened by the meanness and jeal
ousy they have encountered In the
world of literature or art. Coininorchil
competition troubles the sleep of not
a few. The crowded curricula of
study and the exigencies of their open
ing careers spoil life for young men.
The working classes suffer the conse
quences of a ceaseless struggle. It Is
becoming disagreeable to govern bo
cause authority Is diminishing; to
teach, because respect Is vanishing.
Wherever one turns there Is matter for
And yet history shows us certain
epochs of upheaval which wcro as
lacking In Idyllic tranquillity as Is our
own, but which the gravest events
did not prevent from being cay. It
even seems as If the seriousness of af
fairs, the uncertainty of the morrow,
the violence of social convulsions
sometimes became a new source of
vitality. It Is not a rare thing to hear
soldiers singing between two battles
and I think myself nowise mistaken In
saying that human Joy has celebrated
Its finest triumphs under the greatest
tests of endurance. But to sleep peace
fully on the evo of battle, or to exult
at the stake, men had then tho stim
ulus of an Internal harmony which
wo perhaps lack. Joy Is not In things;
It Is In us, and I hold to the belief that
the causes of our present unrest, of
this contagions discontent spreading
, everywhere, are In us at least as much
as In exterior conditions.
To give oneself up heartily to diver
sion one must feel himself on a solid
basis, must believe In life and find It
within him. And here lies our weak
ness. So many of us even, alas, the
younger men are at variance with
life, and I do not speak of philosophers
only. How do you think a man can be
amused while he has his doubts wheth
er, after all, life Is worth living? He
sides this, one observes a disquieting
depression of vital force, which must
be attributed to the abase man makes
of his sensations. Excess of all klmlH
has blurred our senses and poisoned
our faculty for happiness. Human na
ture succumbs under the Irregularities
Imposed upon It Deeply attainted at
Its root, tho deslro to live, persistent In
eplto of everything, seeks satisfaction
in cheats and baubles. In medical sci
ence we hnve recourse to artificial res
piration, artificial alimentation ami gal
vanism. So, too, around expiring pleas
ure we see a crowd of Its votaries ex
erting themselves to reawaken it, to re
animate It. Most Ingenious menus
have been Invented; It can never be
said that expense has been spared.
Everything has been tried, the possible
and the Impossible. Hut In nil these
complicated alembics no ono has ever
arrived at distilling a drop of veritable
Joy. We must not confound pleasure
with the Instruments of pleasure. To
bo a painter, does it sutllco to arm
oneself with a brush, or does the pur
chase at great cost of a Stradlvnrlus
make one a musician? No more, If
you had the whole paraphernalia of
nmusemcnt in tho perfection of Its In
genuity, would It advance you upon
your road. Hut with a bit of crayon
a grent artist makes an Immortal
sketch. It needs talent or genius to
paint; and to amuse oneself, the facul
ty of being happy whoever possesses
It la amused at slight cost. This facul
ty Is destroyed by skepticism, nrtlllclnl
living, overubuse; It Is fostered by con
fidence, moderation and normal habits
of thought and action.
An excellent proof of my proposition,
and one very easily encountered, lies
In the fact that wherever life Is sim
ple nnd sane true pleasure accompa
nies It as fragrance does uncultivated
flowers. Ho this life hard, hampered,
devoid of all things ordinarily consid
ered as tho very conditions of pleasure,
tho rare ani delicate plant, Joy, nour
ishes there. It springs up between the
flags of the pavement, on nn arid wall.
In the fissure of a rock. We ask our
selves how It comes nnd whence, but it
lives, while In Uie soft warmth of con
servatories or In Delds richly fertilized
you cultivate it at a golden cost to mh'
It fade a ml die In your band.
Ask actors what audience is happiest
at the piny. They will tell you the pop
ular one. Tho reason Is not hnrd to
grasp. To these people the piny Is an
eicepHon. They are not bored by It
from overindulgence. And, too, to
them It Is a rest from rude toll. The
pleasure they enjoy they have honestly
earned, and they know Its cost ns
Ihey know that of each sou earned by
the sweat of their labor. More, they
have not frequented the wings, they
have uo Intrigues with the actresses,
they do not see the wires pulled. To
them It Is all real. And so they feel
pleasure unalloyed. I think I see the

The Simple Life

over the smiling crowd.
Poor stupid creatures, ignorant and gross.
And yet they nre the true livers,
while he Is an artificial product, a man
nikln, Incapable of experiencing this
fine nnd salutary intoxication of an
hour of frank pleasure.
I.'nhapplly, Ingenuousness Is disap
pearing even in the rural districts. Wo
see the people of our cities and those
of the country In their turn breaking
with the good traditions. The mind,
warped by alcohol, by t lit passion fur
gambling and by unhealthy literature,
contracts little by little perverted
tastes. Artificial life makes Irruption
Into communities once simple In their
pleasures, and It Is like phylloxera to
the vine. The robust tree of rustic joy
finds Its sap drained, its leaves turn
Compare a fele ehampotre of the
good old stylo with the village festl
vals, so called, of today. In tho one
ense, In the honored setting of nnthpio
costumes, genuine countrymen sing the
folk songs, dance rustic dances, re
gale themselves with native drinks ami
seem entirely In their element. They
take their pleasure as the blacksmith
forges, ns the cascade tumbles over
tho rocks, ns the colts frisk In the
meadows. It Is contagious; it stirs
your heart. In spite of yourself you
are ready to cry: "liravo, my children!
That is fine!" You want to join in.
In tho other case you see villagers dis
guised ns city folk, countrywomen
made hideous by the modiste, and, as
the chief ornament of tho festival, n
lot of degenerates who bawl tho songs
of music hulls, and sometimes In the
place of honor n group of tenth rale
barn stunners, Imported for the occa
sion, to civilize theso rustics and givo
them a taste of refined pleasures. For
drinks, liquors mixed with brandy or
absinth In tho whole thing neither
originality nor plcturosqueiioss. Li
cense, Indeed, nnd clownlshness, but
not that abandon which Ingenuous Joy
brings In Its train.
This quest Ion of pleasure Is capital.
Staid people' generally neglect it ns
a frivolity; utilitarians, as a cosily su
perfluity. Those whom wo deslgnato
as pleasure seekers forage In this deli
cate domain like wild boars In a gar
den. No one seems lo doubt the Im
mense human Interest attached to Joy.
It Is n sacred llanio that must be fed
and that throws a splendid radhmeo
over life. He who takes pains to fos
ter it accomplishes a work as profit
able for humanity as he who builds
bridges, pierces tunnels or cultivates
tho ground. So to order one's life ns
to keep, amid tolls and suffering, tho
faculty of happiness and be able to
propagate It In a sort of salutary con
tagion among one's fellow men Is to
do n work of fraternity In the noblest
sense. To give n trilling pleasure,
smooth nn anxious brow, bring a Utile
light into dark paths-what n truly
divine olllco In the midst of this poor
humanity 1 Hut It Is only In great sim
plicity of heart that one succeeds In
Wo nro not simple enough to be hap
py und to render others so. We lack
the singleness of heart and the self
forget fulness. We spread Joy, as we
do consolation, by such met hods as to
obtain negative results. To console a
person what do we do? Wo set to
work to dispute bis suffering, persuade
him that he is mistaken In thinking
himself unhappy. In reality our lan
guage translated Into truthful speech
would amount to this: "Yon suffer, my
friend? That Is strange. You must bo
mistaken, for I feel nothing." As tho
only human means of soothing grief Is
to share It In the heart, how must n
sufferer feel consoled in this fashion?
To divert our neighbor, make him
pass an agreeable hour, we set out in
the same way. We Invite him to ad
mire our versatility, to laugh at our
wit, to frequent our house, to sit at
our table. Through It all our desire to
shine breaks forth. Sometimes, also,
with a patron's prodigality wo offer
him the bonolloonce of n public enter
tainment of our own choosing, unless
we ask him to find amusement at our
home, as we sometimes do to make up
a party at cards, with the arriere
pensee of exploiting him to our own
profit. Do you think It the height of
pleasure for others to admire us, to ad
mit our superiority nnd to act as our
tools? Is there anything In the world
so disgusting ns to feel oneself patron
ized, made capital of, enrolled In a
claque? To give pleasure to others and
take it ourselves we have to begin by
removing the ego, which Is hateful,
nnd then keep It In chains ns long as
the diversions last. There Is no worse
kill Joy than the ego. We must be
good children, sweet ami kind, button
our coals over our medals and titles
and Willi v,ir whole heart put our
selves at the disposal of others.
Let us sometimes live-he It only for
nn hour, and though we must lay all
else aside- to make others smile. The
sacrifice Is only in appearance. No one
finds more pleasure for himself than he
who knows how, without ostentation,
to give himself that he may procure
for those around him a moment of for
gel fulness and happiness.
When shall we be so simply and
duly men as not to obtrude our per
sonal business and distresses upon the
people we meet socially? M-iy we not
forget for an hour our pretensions, our
strife, our distributions Into sets and
cliques lu short, our "parts"- and be
come as children once more, to laugh
again that good laugh which docs so
much to make the world better?
Here I feel drawn to speak of some
thing very particular, and In so doing
to offer my well disposed readers an
opportunity to go about a splendid
business. I want to call their at
tention to several classes of people
seldom thought of with reference to
It is understood that a broom serves
only to sweep, a watering pot to water
plants, a coffee mill to grind coffee,
and likewise It Is supposed that a
nurse Is designed only to care ror tne
t ick, a professor to teach, a priest to
i preach, bury and confess, a sentinel to
mount guard; and the conclusion Is
drawn that tho people given up to tho
more serious business of life are dedi
cated to labor, like the ox. Amuse
ment is Incompatible with their actlv
- Itles. rushing this view still further,
we think ourselves warranted In be
lieving that the infirm, the afflicted,
the bankrupt, the vanquished In life's
battle and all those who carry heavy
burdens are In the shade, like the
northern slopes of mountains, and that
It Is so of necessity; whence the con
elusion that serious people have uo
I need of pleasure and that to offer It
to them would bo unseemly, while as
1 to the afflicted, there would be a lack
of delicacy In breaking the thread of
; their sad medltatif x It seems there.
fore to.be understood that certain per
sons are condemned to be always se
rious, that we should approach them In
a serious frame of mind and talk to
them only of serious things. So, too,
when we visit the slek or unfortunate,
we should leave our smiles at the door,
compose our face and manner to dole
fulness and talk of anything heart
rending. Thus we carry darkness to
those In darkness, shade to those In
Hhade. We Increase the Isolation of
solitary, lives and the monotony of the
dull and sad. We wall up some exist
ences, ns it were, In dungeons, and
because the grass grows round their
deserted prison house we speak low In
approaching It, as though it were a
tomb. Who suspects the work of In
fernal cruelty which Is thus accom
plished every day In the world! This
ought not to be.
When you find men or women whose
lives are lost In hard tasks or In the
painful office of seeking out human
wretchedness and binding up wounds,
remember that they are beings made
like you; that they have the same
wants; thnt there are hours when they
need pleasure and diversion. You will
not turn them aside from their mission
by mnklng them laugh occasionally,
these people who see so many tears
n ml griefs. On the contrary, you will
give them strength to go on the better
with their work.
And when people whom you know
are in trial, do not draw a sanitary cor
don round them, as though they bad
the plague, that you cross only with
precautions which recall to them their
id lot. On the contrary, after show
ing nil your sympathy, all youf respect,
lor their grief, comfort them, help
them to tnko up life again, carry them
n breath from the out of doors some
thing, In short, to remind them that
their misfortune does not shut them
off from tho world.
And so extend your sympathy to
those whose work quite absorbs them;
who nre, so to put It, tied down. The
world is full of men and women sac
rificed to others, who never have either
rest or pleasure and to whom the leust
relaxation, the slightest respite, Is a
priceless good. And this minimum of
comfort could be so euslly found for
them if only we thought of It. Hut the
broom, you know, Is made for sweep
ing, ami It seems as though It could
not be fatigued. Let us rid ourselves
of this criminal blindness which pre
vents us from seeing the exhaustion
of those who are alwnys In the breach,
ltelleve the sentinels perishing at their
posts; give Sisyphus an hour to breathe;
take for a moment the place of the
mother, a slave to the cares of her
house and her children; sacrifice an
hour of our sleep for some one worn
by long vigils with the sick. Young
girl, tired sometimes perhaps of your
wnlk with your governess, take the
cook's npron und give her the key to
t he Holds. You will at once make oth
ers happy nnd be happy yourself. Wo
go unconcernedly along beside our
brothers who nre bent undur burdens
we might take upon ourselves for a
minute. And this short respite would
sutllco to soothe aches, revive the flnme
of Joy In many a heart and open up a
wide place for brotherllness. How
much better would one understand an
other If be knew bow to put himself
heartily In that other's place, and how
much more pleasure there would be In
I have spoken too fully elsewhere
of systematizing amusements for the
young to return to It here in detail, but
I wish to say lu substance what can
not be too often repeated: If you wish
youth to be moral do not neglect Its
pleasures or leave to chance the task
of providing them. You will perhaps
say that young people do not Ilka, to
have their umusements submitted to
regulations und that, besides, lu our
day they are already orerspoiled and
divert themselves only too much. 1
shall reply, first, that one may suggest
Ideas, Indicate directions, offer oppor
tunities for amusement, without mnk
lng any regulations whatever. In the
pecond place, I shall mako you see that
you deceive yourselves In thinking
youth has too much diversion. Aside
from amusements that are artificial,
enervating und Immoral, that blight
life Instead of making It bloom In
splendor, there are very few left today.
Abuse, that enemy of legitimate use,
has so befouled the world that It Is be
coming difficult to touch anything but
what Is unclean; whence watchfulness,
warnings and endless prohibitions. One
can hardly stir without encountering
something that resembles unhealthy
pleasure. Among young people of to
day, particularly the self respecting,
the dearth of amusements onuses real
suffering. One is not weaned from this
generous wine without discomfort. Im
possible to prolong this state of affairs
without deepening the shadow round
the bends of the younger generations.
We must come to their aid. Our chil
dren are heirs of a Joyless world. We
bequeath them cures, hard questions,
a life heavy with shackles and com
plexities. Let us at least make an ef
fort to brighten the morning of their
days; let us Interest ourselves lu their
sports, find them pleasure grounds,
epen to them our hearts and our homes;
hi us bring the family into our amuse
ments; let gayety cease to be a com
modity of export; let us call In our
sons, whom our gloomy interiors send
out into the street, nnd our daughters,
moping In dismal solitude; let us mul
tiply anniversaries, family parties and
excursions; let us raise good humor In
our homes to the height of an institu
tion; let the schools, too, do their part;
let masters and students schoolboys
and college boys-meet together often
er for amusement. It will be so much
the better for serious work. There la
no such aid to understanding one's pro
fessor as to have laughed in fits com
pany, and, conversely, to be well un
derstood a pupil must be met elsewhere
than In class or examination.
And who will furnish the money?
What a question! That Is exactly the
error. Measure and money people
take them for the two wings of the
sume bird! A gross Illusion! Pleasure,
like all other truly precious things In
this world, cannot be bought or sold.
If you wish to be amused you must do
your part toward It. That Is the es
sential. There Is no prohibition against
opening your purse, If you can do it
and find It desirable, but I assure you
it Is not Indispensable. Pleasure and
simplicity are two old acquaintances.
Entertain simply, meet your friends
simply. If you come from work well
done, are as amiable and genuine as
possible toward your companions and
speak no evil of the absent, your suc
cess is sure.
THE MERCENARY SPIRIT AND SIMPLICITY.
WE have In passing touched upon
a certain widespread preju
dice which attributes to mon
ey a magic power. Having
come so near enchanted ground, we
will not retire In awe, but plant a
firm foot here, persuaded of many
truths that shield be spoken. They
ore not new, but how they are forgot
ten! I see no possible way of doing with
out money. The only thing that theo
rists or legislators who sccuse It of all
our ills have hitherto achieved has
been to change its name or form. But
they have never been able to dispense
with a symbol representative of the
commercial value of tilings. One
might as well wish to do away with
written language as to do away with
money. Nevertheless this question of
a circulating medium is very trouble
some. It forms one of the chief ele
ments of complication In our life. The
economic difficulties nrald which we
still flounder, social conventionalities
snd the entire organization of modern
life have carried gold to a rank so
eminent that it is not astonishing to
find the Imagination of man attribut
ing to It a sort of royulty. And It is
on this side that we shall attack the
The term money has for appendage
that of merchandise. If there were no
merchandise there would be no money,
but as long as there Is merchandise
there will be money, little matter un
der what form. The source of all the
abuses which center around money lies
In a lack of discrimination. People
have confused under the term and idea
of merchandise things which have no
relation with one another. They have
attempted to give a venal value to
things which neither could have it nor
ought to. The Idea of purchase and
sale has Invaded ground where it may
justly be considered an enemy and a
usurper. It Is reasonable that wheat,
potatoes, wine, fabrics, should be
bought and sold, and It is perfectly
natural that a man's labor procure
him rights to life and that there be put
Into his hands something whose value
represents tliein, but here already the
analogy ceases to be complete. A man's
labor Is not merchandise in the same
sense as a sack of flour or a ton of coal.
Into this labor enter elements which
cannot be valued In money. In short,
there are things which can in nowise
be bought sleep, for lust once, knowl
edge of the future, talent. He who of
fers them for sale must be considered
a fool or an impostor, and yet there
are gentlemen who colli money by such
traflio. They sell what does not be
long to them, and their dupes pay ficti
tious values In veritable coin. So, too,
there are dealers in pleasure, dealers
in love, dealers In miracles, dealers in
patriotism, and the title of merchant,
so honorable when it represents a man
selling that which Is In truth a com
modity of trade, becomes the worst of
stigmas when there is question of the
heart, of religion, of country.
Almost all men are agreed that to
barter with one's sentiments, his hon
or, his cloth, his pen, or bis note. Is in
famous. Unfortunately this idea, which
suffers no contradiction as a theory
nnd which thus stated seems rather a
commonplace than a high moral truth,
has infinite trouble to moke Its way in
practice. Traffic has Invaded the world.
The money changers are established
even in the sanctuary, and by sanctu
ary I do not mean religious things
alone, but whatever mankind holds sa
cred and Inviolable. It is not gold that
complicates, corrupts and debases life;
It Is our mercenary spirit.
The mercenary spirit resolves every
thing Into a single question, How
much Is that going to bring me? and
sums up everything in a single axiom.
With money you can procure anything.
Following these two principles of con
duct, a society may descend to a de
gree of infamy Impossible to descrU
or to Imagine.
