The month of January is a particularly

ment a new federation is announced in
the east, to lie known as “Don’t Worry
Clubs,” and is receiving some Consider
ation. The articles of faith, as far as
announced, are to the effect that worry
makes matters worse, and should there
fore )e discarded ; that courage and pres
ence of mind should take it« place; that
among its evils are a waste of vitality and
impairment of mental faculties, and that
where it is indulged happiness is impos
sible. A new member is impressed with
the duty of attacking worry as an enemy,
but one that can be driven out by persis
tent effort. Advice is given as to culti
vating a grateful spirit for what is
possessed, on helping and comforting
neighbors, and overcoming enmities and
aversions. More or less df care is ad
mitted to be the condition of existence,
but the way to meet it is cheerfully and
bravely, remembering how much of good
there is in life and avoiding fretfulness
as an evil that writes an unpleasing mes
sage on the face, lowers the health, nar

to the weight of every burden.
