* ••••••••••••••••eeeeeeeeeeeeoeeeeeeeeeoeeeeaeeeee in my VEINS BY MARIAN INMAN My mail the last few days has been varied and most interesting. Colorful seed catalogues, letters, an especially darling one from my little Aunt Barbara, a wedding invitation from one of our nice local girls, thank you notes and bills. Well it's that time. Good times and get'togethers with family and friends have been plentiful. Income tax business and then a pleasant luncheon with son Paul and wife Dorothy and Rose Murphy In Algona, Alice Weber's lovely birthday luncheon for Charlotte Habeger, dinner with the Joe Cogley family at son Paul's, the luncheon and good visit with the Robert Rings- dorfs at my home plus a long distance call from daughter Elitabeth Ann. Back to school today to the atmosphere of children and books and general office work and home again with the satisfied feeling of having helped, having given something of myself. Among the after Christmas letters from my grandchildren in the South and the West is one from Mary Fran's, Suxy who says and I quote, "I surely wish that you would come out and see us soon, very soon. I have my empty drawers and sorta empty bed awaiting you." i "So, please don't disappoint them, for mom's, Dad's, Bruce's, Mark's and my sake. Lots of love, Suiy." Almost every other broadcast on radio and TV talk about the increase in population and use the phrase, population explosion. According to today's Advance we are not doing too well in Kpssuth in this respect. In fact the year's figures show a decline in number of births and along with this fewer marriages and fewer divorces which of course we could do without. The shortest verse in the Bible is the thirty-fifth verse of the eleventh chapter of St. John, which is: "Jesus wept." The longest verse in the Bible is the ninth verse in the eighth chapter of Esther. Until we read the biographies of some of the world's most successful men and women, we are inclined to believe that they were born geniuses and that their lives were easy ones. However, this is untrue as in practically every case success came only after a great amount of hard work and self- denial. In addition many of these geniuses were not born with extraordinary talent. In fact many of their early efforts were not even up to the average. In spite of these discouragements they continued their efforts to become the "Greats." And so it goes, proving repeatedly that one should not be discouraged if his first efforts are feeble. Do not be discouraged because your talent has not been discovered. Keep at work and develop yourself until you have so much to offer that it must be obvious to all. You too, can become one of the greats. And along with this encouragement not to become discouraged, is this bit Of wisdom and advice. Do not think only of what you will make of yourself. Everyone is thinking of what you will make of the world. Do not disappoint them. At one time or another each of us thinks we would be entirely happy if we were free to drift as we pleased, with no work to tie us down. This reminds me of the story of the man who wandered into the desert in search of solitude and the happiness he expected it to bring. He found a cave near a spring where he could obtain water and growing plants for his food. In this indolent fashion he spent many months of solitude. The hours of the day passed slowly and weariness of his lonely existence oppressed and crushed his soul. In his extreme wretchedness he cried, "Father God,, let me die. I am weary of this life." Exhausted he fell asleep and a beautiful dream came to him. An angel stood before him and said, "Cut down the palm tree that grows beyond the spring and make of its fibers a rope." When the hermit awoke he recalled the vision and set about to perform the task the angel had specified. Since he had no axe, he had to journey far to secure one. When he returned, he felled the tree and worked with great effort to prepare the fibers and form them into a coil of rope. When he had done this task, the angel appeared again to him in his sleep and said, "Dominick, you are no longer wearly of life but you are happy now because man is made for labor. Work is essential for man's happiness. Go therefore into the world with the rope wound around you and let it always remind you that toil is sweet." Work is the greatest force in the world for character building through practical effort. Just as religion will build character through the spirit and mind, so work creates character by allowing a man to earn the respect of others. The Chinese have a proverb to the effect that if a man does not work or if a womas is idle this indolence causes someone somewhere in the nation to suffer cold or hunger.
