The next day the chief resident physician made the examination, while the patient groaned and wailed. With a laconic smile the doctor marked "ergophobii" on his card and passed on his rounds. "Just think, isn't that terrible?" cried the patient. "Of all things, I am stricken with ergophobia. What will become of me?" "You're discharged fro mthe hospital, that's all," said the resident physician curtly. "But I am dying from ergophobia. Say, doc, w-hat does that mean?" the patient asked. "Oh, its a common disease. The word is derived from 'ergon, meaning work, and 'phobia,' meaning fear. In plain words, my man, you're suffering from a fear of work just plain laziness, that's it."

Each crowd is at bottom a vast reservoir of blind desire, vague faith, dumb suffering; each crowd is composed of units that breathe, hope, die; each crowd is uncoordinated personality in conflict with individual differentiation; each crowd is at once Everyman and No-man. Ergophobia Scared Him Until It Was Explained A broad-shouldered man shuffled into the receiving ward of a city hospital in Philadelphia the other day and demanded a thorough examination for a mysterious disease that had "completely knocked him out."

Crowd Has Personality But Little Individualitv It would have been more to the pur pose if the critics had insisted upon Walt Whitman's position as the poet of personality, rather than of indi viduality, writes John Gould Fletcher in the North American Review. These terms are commonly confused in the minds of most people, and even held to be interchangeable. In reality a maximum of individuality implies a iminimum of personality and visa versa. The individual, as such, is necessarily isolated and there mm" H "Hi! i. fisi r-- -yi 5 C ITS THE NEED" a erritorial Official Reveals High Spots of Home Service Program. Grand Rapids, Mich. (Special). "Seventeen thousand human beings a day are fed by Army in its nation-wide home service program," said Col. Alexander M. Damon, n e w territorial chief secretary of the Salvation Army, in an address before the advisory boards and friends of the organization here. "In our effort to Col. Damon. help meet human-1 lty's need In the United States last year," he said, "we' helped bridge the gap of want for over 1,600,000 needy men, women and children. Even in the most prosperous times In our country, hundreds of thousands of men are out of employment. This means suffering and privation for hundreds of thousands more of the helpless ones who are dependent on them. Indeed, the poor we always have with us. "Remembering Kindliness." "Ours is a problem of both ends of society's ladder. The one with our dealings In the lowest and darkest places of life where men, women and children are down and almost out. The other with keeping alive on the part of those at the top of the ladder a remembering kindliness ever quickened by the thought that they are their brothers' keeper and that 'where much is given much Is expected. "It is so easy for people not to sense hunger on the part of others when their own table Is spread, or cold, in winter, when their own feet are warm and their own hearths are blazing. To remember the humanities is to remember the Giver of all good. Charity was announced by the Man of Galilee as the cardinal virtue of Christian living without which all else becomes as 'tinkling brass. Not only Is It our function to serve In the dark r" "es of life but ever to keep stirred ,.p in the hearts of those able to help us to help others, the necessity of keeping us mobilized and equipped for our tasks down at the bottom. ' Problem of the Ages. Mankind generally subscribes to the proposition that 'a man may be down but he's never out. But is it so kind to woman? The lowly Naza- rene, in no unmistakable terms, championed the just criterion of an equal chance to 'come back for both man and woman. 'Neither do I condemn thee; go and sin no more, He said to the unfortunate woman that men would stone. It is upon this precept that we have built the work in our rescue homes and maternity hospitals where, last year, 3,186 girls found a haven of refuge from degradation or suicide, were constructively minls- tered to and permanently restored to their better selves and to society. To correct a somewhat popular impres sion that It Is only the flotsam and Jetsam of young womanhood that finds Its way into these homes, last year, in one of them, out of 50 girls received, seven were high school girls from good families and three were school teach ers. GoBpel of Good Citizenship, The Salvation Army has been called the 'conscience of the street corner. 'Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's and unto God the things that are God's,' is the simple gospel method of right living and good citizenship that The Salva tion Army sang and taught from the street corners of the United States, within earshot, it is estimated, of over 35,000,000 people last year."

A story is told of an old Indian who brought a squaw to the- reservation minister object: matrimony. The minister asked the bride-to-be if her chief had any property. She shook her head. "And you, are vou anv better off? asked the sky pilot. Again she shook her head. "Then what on earth do you want to get married for?" queried the reverend gentleman. "Him blanket. Me got blanket.

Going out to the races at Indian apolis on Decoration Day we heard a man complaining bitterly as he took his seat in the train and thought he would have to ride backward. Finally his wife, occupying the seat facing him, exchanged with him. The train pulled out of the yards and the man found himself again with his back to the engine. Again he grumbled, protesting that he could not ride backward. Again his wife changed with him. Then she said: "When you die I am going to bur vou face down. Then you won't have to travel backward." 3fc NATURALLY. The inquisitive old lady was bending over the bed of a wounded soldier whose head was swathed with cotton and linen. "Were you wounded in the head, my boy?" she asked. "No'm," replied a faint voice. "I was shot in the foot and the band-ace has slipped up." And He Ought To Be There. From over about Rochester comes a tale of a father who did not like the young man who had been calling on his daughter. "In plum tired of seeing him around," declared the old man, "and I just had the pleasure of kicking him into the middle of next week." "That's very careless of you, father," replied the girl; "we had arranged to be married on Monday." More proof that man was in tended for work: He yearned for butter, and nature gave him a cow. FOME.
