Too many people look upon charity as an undesirable expense and an unreasonable demand on their private income or accumulation of personal Wealth. Such people do not enjoy helping others and they do not have the spirit advocated by John Wesley who urged, "Earn all you can and give all you can." Tht picture, "Th« Light of the World" painted by Holman Hunt, ihowi Christ in i gardtn at midnight, In Hi* lift hand He it holding a lantern and Hit right hand it knocking on a heavily panolod doer. When the painting was unveiled, an art critic remarked, "Mr. Hunt, you haven't finished your work. There is no handle on, that door." "That," said the artist, "is the door to the human heart — it can be opened only from the in side." Those who have participated in charity drives or who have sought to make appeals from the speaking platform for a worthy cause have learned that it is almost impossible to get into the human heart from the outside. The door must be opened from within. The charitable person is charitable in spirit and wants to help his fellow men. He possesses a love for his fellow men and a desire to be generous with his means. Many stories are told about that great Kansas editor and humanitarian, William Allen White. I like the story about the time he was presenting to his home town some land which was to be used for a city park. On the occasion when he was to turn over the deed to the Mayor of Emporia, Mr. White said: "Your honor, there are three kicks in a dollar. One kick comes at the earning of it. This I have had and I very greatly enjoyed it. The second kick comes upon just having it. This I have inherited from my father. He was a Scotchman. I have much enjoyed having it. The third kick comes from giving it away. This I inherit from my mother. She was Irish. I will now indulge in that privilege. There are too many people who never get full enjoyment from their money. They get only one or two kicks but seldom all three. They enjoy earning the money or they may enjoy holding and possessing it, but the full satisfaction comes first from earning, next from possessing and finally in using this money for a worthy and worth-while purpose. Those who have a charitable and generous nature find this the greatest happiness in life. How often do we run across our old friend, the verb, to tantalize? This word tantalise, which means to torment by repeated disappointments in the attainment of some apparen- table object, comes to us from Tantalus, who, in classic mythology was the son of Zeus. The story goes that Tantalus divulged the secrets entrusted to him by life father, and punished in the lower world with unappeasable hunger end thurst. He was pieced up to his chin in weter, end every time he attempted to get a drink the weter receded from him, while over his head were hung clusters of luscious fruit thet likewise eluded his grasp whenever he attempted to reach them. In addition to these torments, Tantalus was kept in e state of constant terror lest a rock thet was suspended above his head should fall and crush him. And from the sufferings of poor old Tantalus we get the word tantalize. The word loafer, has a most peculiar origin. Loafer is really a corruption of the word lover, as pronounced by a Dutch emigrant in America. The story goes that an old Dutchman settled in New York and acquired a large fortune. He had a daughter and a young American fell in love with her. Because this m'ah was an idle.-good-for-nothing; he \ forbade the • American to enter"the house, ibut his daughter encouraged the- youth. Whenever the old merchant saw his daughter's lover about the premises he used to say to her. "There is that loafer of yours, that idle, good-for-nothing man." And so an idle man hanging about where he wasn't wanted became known as a loafer. . The nemo museum was first given to-the temple of the Muses. Later any collection of ertistic creations was celled a museum, end finally the place where all these collections were housed was given the name. Today I received a nice letter from the Kuska Museum in Lomita, California, near Torrance where my daughter Mary Fran lives and which museum we visited just before I came home. Mrs. Kuska is working on the story of each article in their private museum, an article telling how they the Kuskas acquired it, where the article was made, how it was used and its place and date in past history. She writes that she is working hard on it and hopes that it will not turn out to be a castle in Spain. Now is the time to do a good deed, e little remembrance to a friend or relative who is ill. Now is the time to plan your winter reading. Be sure to include, ''Five Smooth Stones" by Ann Fairbairn. How is your fruit cake coming? I have not baked mine but I have made, 12 quarts in various sise containers, frozen fruit salad. This year I have the candied ginger for it, a gift from my daughter Elizabeth Ann. At Christmas time, I'll wrap the salads in Christmas wrapping and have delicious personal ?ifts for e chosen few. This is fun to make end makes e nice Urge worthwhile batch. Each year I change the recipe or add a favorite fruit until the recipe is almost mine. "There is no lovelier way to thank God for your sight than by giving a helping hand to some one in the dark."
