SATURDAY, OCTOBER, 3rd, 1914.
YOUR MISERY IN YOUR MIND.
• It is the habit of men and of women to decry the present and extol the past. Things were never quite so bad
with them before. They never before had such sufficient
cause for being ill-tempered, morose and despondent. They
never before met wilh so many and such sore disappointments; they never before were deprived of so many things
they wanted, or prevented from doing so many things they
desired to. The wife or the husband, as the case i may be,
was never before so neglectful of their welfare and so indifferent to their wishes and their peace of mind and happiness, and they sulk and pine and brood and grumble.    *
The fact is, that in regard to the happiness you enjoy,
or the misery you undergo, the majority of men and women
are like the spendthrift, who each clay squanders every penny'
he can get, but is going to become saving and commence
getting rich at some future lime. So with the majority of
men and women, in relation to their emotions. They have;
so much to worry, vex and torment them today that they
will be just as miserable as they can, but are fully resolved
to be happy at some future time. With them experience
does not lead them to reflect that, on the average, one dayl
is much like another, and that if they are ever to be happy, j
they had best be happy today. Neither do they ever seem
to discover that misery or contentment is almost an entirely
a matter of temperament or, as you might say, of opinion.
The discontented and repining always assign this or that as |
the cause of their discomfort, or the lack of this thing or
lhat thing as the source of their tribulation and wretchedness.
And the fact that a neighbor possesses those very things,
seems even more disconsolate and rueful than they, never
seems to suggest to them that* their misery is all in their
mind.
The man of very limited income can scarce meet the
expenses of his family and hear their fretful complaints because they are not better dressed, or more expensively
housed, and he feels dejected and discouraged and thinks the
addition of a fewjhundreds to his income would remove* all
his troubles; and yet, next door, or on the next block, \is another man with five times his income in precisely his fix and
in the same state of mind.

If you would halve a clean hearted boy you must teach
him to keep his body clean and vigorous. Give him wholesome food and conveniences for bathing. The body is the
temple of the spirit. A boy's clothes may ba of the roughest,
but if he brushes his teeth and takes a cold plunge of a
morning he is a gentleman, and he will not find his mouth
stained by foul words nor his body capable of evil deeds. '
A normal boy is mentally active. He must ask questions.
His mind needs food as much as his body. Give him noble
books to read. Fill his mind with the great thoughts of the
large-minded men of all ages, and you give him an inheritance of more value than money. Teach your boy to read
good books by buying them for him. History, science, the
best fiction, poetry, essays—a boy need never be lonely when
he may have as friends the entertaining and large-hearted
men of all nations and of all time.

Production of Hogi, Sheep and
Cattle Recommended to
Canadian Farmers.
The outbreak of the war in
Europe and the consequent demand which is naturally, to be
expected for increased exports of
meats, finds Canada in a much
denuded condition as regards live
I stock. As a result of the removal
of the American tariff on cattle
a heavy export trade developed
to the south. In some districts
in eastern 'Canada nearly everything has been shipped out of the
country except dairy cows. This
export trade, together with many
farmers selling their calves for
veal, can have but one result in
Canada, viz: a greater scarcity of
meat than at present exists, even
in a normal market. The meat
industry in Canada should not be
allowed to dwindle—rather, the j
production of hogs, sheep and
cattle on Canadian farms should
be greatly increased. To obtain
this increase does not mean that
farmers should devote their whole
attention to live stock. The ma-;
jority of farmers will admit that
with very little extra effort and
expense they could increase by
several head the live stock on
their farms without in any way
interfering with their present
system of farming.
From reports to the Commission of Conservation present conditions indicate' a world-wide
scarcity of live stock, with little
likelihood , of an overcrowded
market for many years to come.
The opportunity for Canadian
farmers is therefore apparent.
To take advantage of this, farmers should save their heifer calves
to produce more cattle, while the i
others may be turned off, not as
veal but as beef.
Expert stockmen advise that
there are good times ahead for
those raising sheep. The high
price of mutton and of wool and
the comparative ease with which
a flock of sheep may be sustained
! upon land which is otherwise unsuitable for agriculture, should
suggest a great increase in the
; number of sheep raised by Canadian farmers.
Increased production in hogs
can be brought about more quick
ly than in any other class of live'
stock, and consequently should
[receive immediate attention.
Animal production on the farm
is desirable because it increases
the fertility ar.d crop-raising ability of the soil. Good prices are
sure to be obtained for any sur-
• plus which farmers will have to
sell on account of the inevitable
j shortage of supply resulting from
war conditions in Europe. These
two conditions should be an incentive to Canadian farmers to
increase their live stock production. A little foresight now, with
modern methods of feeding, will
make increased production easily
possible.

EDITORS SKEPTIC
One of the greatest trials of
the newspaper is that its members are compelled to see more
of tthe shame of the world than
in any other profession. Through
every newspaper office, day
after day. all the wickedness of
the world, church bickerings,
and all the mistakes that want
to be corrected, all the dull
speakers that want to be thought
eloquent, all the meanness that
wants to get its wares noticed
gratis in the editorial columns in
order to save the tax of advertising columns; all the cracked brain
philosophers whose stories are
as long as their hair and as
gloomy as their finger nails in
mourning because bereft of all
soap, all the bores who come to
stay a few minutes but stay
hours. Through all the editorial
and reportonal room all the follies
and shame of the world are seen
day by day and the temptation
is to believe neither God, nor
man. nor woman. It is no surprise to tell me that in this profession there are so many skeptical men. 1 only wonder that
journalists believe anything.
