But they stopped very suddenly, so the little tailor said I wondered what a tailor thinks, about. It must be monotonous life going round and measuring men sewing up the suits and trying them on, ami fixing them over and listening to a good deal of grumbling. 'Do you find life worth living?" I asked him. His face brightened. "It keeps me interested." "But what are your pleasures?" makei busier get sleepy world deite. thrill?" "Well for one thing I get quite a lot of excitement in overcoming my difficulties." He went on to tell me about his difficulties, and as he talked I felt u revcrance for that little tailor and a certain amount of shame for myself. How much less he has than 1 have.

When I was in Chicago a few years ago they told me about the late T. F. Merselcs who left the presidency of Montgomery Ward and Company to become the pres ident of Johns Manville. Why did he do it? He had all the money he could possibly use. Why should a man of sixty give up something which was going smoothly to tack le a new situation? "Money had nothing to do with it," one of his former associates told mo. He called us in one day and said: 'Boys, 1 think I have this job licked. So I'll just say good bye. I'm going where there are some problems."' Many a man makes himsfelf un happy. 1 think, because he regards his difficulties as srtme special affliction for which Fate has sing led him out. Difficulties are as much a part of the program of life as the pleasures. You're certain to have them The only question is. how will you regard them? As afflictions? Or as a part of the game—like Merselcs and the little tailor? 0 remember you have to none than Groundhog to a ter if he into ter If, 2 is ly track tra he groundhog similarly. in ce ing is signs "If Buy A An The The And He He •\ Mr. McCarley was a man of gen-!
