But if yon can he shown Hint these other people fell blue hi exiiclly the same way you do, bad Hie same reasons you have for thinkini; they would never feel any better, ami yet somehow did win Uivouifh to sunny optimism once more— well, maybe thai would help a J.illlc. The publishing house of Harper anil Brothers the oilier clay ihiR up iri editorial from Harper's Weekly, printed on Oct. 10, 1857; and for one reason and another the thing makes especially interesting reading ritflit now. "It is a gloomy moment in history," lamented the editor in 1857. "Not for many years — not in the lifetime of most men who read this — has there been so much grave and deep apprehension; never has the future .seemed so incalculable as at Ihis time. "in our own country there is universal commercial prostration and panic, and thousands of our poorest fcllow- .., citizens are lurncd out against the approaching winter without employment and without the prospect of it. "In France the political cauldron seethes and bubbles with uncertainly; Russia hangs as usual, like a cloud, dark and silent upon the horizon of Europe; while all the energies, resources and influences of the British Empire are sorely tried, and are .yet to be fried more sorely,' in copinj.'.ivith the vast and deadly disturbed relations in' China." The editor went on at considerable length in this vein, and his conclusion was that times were parlous awl that there was little hope in Ibis world; but if he lived long enough lie assuredly saw the storm clouds of 1857 dissipated and came out into a world wherein a man could be fairly satisfied with the present and decently hopeful about the future. The interesting thing about it, of course, is the fact that you would not need to change only half a dozen words or so in order to make that old Harper's Weekly screed' perfectly timely for use today. Once again we live amid "grave and deep apprehension." Once again the future has "seemed incalculable." Once again we sutler from "commercial prostration and panic." The French po- OUT OUR WAY litical cauldron is seething- and bubbling again, Russia is still a dark cloud, the Hrilish empire is still in a tight place—and so on and so on, sentence by sentence. Hut somehow the world did live through 1857 and the dire events which lay on 1857's horiy.on, and became a better and happier place, Is one being a fatuous optimist to suggest that we Hhall ultimately be able lo say the same thing of ]'J38 and its troubles? By Any Other ]t is too b;ir), but the wholly snobbish idea that street cleaniiiK is a job to be looked down upon has gotten around those many years and today scums lirinly entrenched as an old reliable for the cheap comedians. So New York City i.s goiiij/ to try lo do something about restoring a measure of dignity to the men who push brooms along il.s thoryiiKbfaren. Soon those hardworking gentlemen, who still liud plenty to do.dcspiU: the disappearance of the horse, will be known not as "street sweepers" but as "sanitation men." That's what Sanitation Commissioner William K. Carey hopes, at any rate. This revolutionary change will, according to 51 r. Carey, "perk up (lie whole force from the commissioner down." That is doubt fnl. "Street sweeper" .sounds no less respectable than ".sanitation man" and there is nothing wrong with "street sweeper" in Hie lirst place: the fault is with those people who think the term carries a note of debasement. The really sad part of it all is (hat no |)iiy increases are to ^o with the new titles. There 'is nothing that will "perk up" an individual as will a few extra bobs in the kick— be he street sweeper, sanitation man or bank president. lien! tafely, in Ihc true sense of Ihe word, never comes from security. , Most of us need the spur of Insecurity to make us do olir best. —1'rcs.

He had merely suggcslcd .they enter into a trial engagement in order to make Evelyn believe they were going to be married.

Neither of them said anything for i while. Then Beryl looked up from icr plate again. "You're not going without, saying goodby to Itogcr, without lelliug him, are you, Jackie?" Jackie said DO, she would nut do that. She pushed her plate away; she could not eat anything move. "I'll say goodby in the morning." Oh, how hard that would he! When it might he goodby forever. When it might mean she would never see Koscr again. "1 don't Uiink there is any train out of here until noon." "I'm sorry that you have to go,' Beryl said, still in that same doubtful tone, her dark eyes troubled, questioning. Then slie smiled at Jackie, gently, "Though if you think you should — maybe it is best, alter all." Jackie said, "I think it is."
