DAY of REST
But even rest frequently be
comes tiresome. You know
this is so. You lie in bed, be
cause you can do so until
you are almost too tin d to
get up. Eat a late breakfast
and sit around the house un
til you are so tired that you
think you will go to church
and on returning you get
your morning paper.
This is a diversion for a
while, but after a time you
commence to paw the sheets
over and yawn. You are
tired reading the paper so
you commence to saunter
about the house with your
hands in your pockets and
perhaps for sheer want of
something to doyoukick the
dog a couple of times. By
this time "rest" has got on
your nerve to such an extent
that you feel that you must
take a walk.
It is now near dusk and af
ter you walk about for a
while aimlessly you start for
home tired of every thing. As
you come around by the de
pot you see a large white
building lit up with electric
lights and you hear the
strains of good music and on
looking up you see in gilt
