WHATEVER there may be of in

n'ft upon to me, but to a reader who

A sweet-faced, white-haired little
woman is Mrs. James Gray. You
would !?ave thought, as 1 did. par
ticularly of her sweetness, it she hap
pened to be telling you. as she told |
me. of a courageous fight which she
and her husband have been waging
against vicissitudes and adversity, with
no more suggestion of complaint or
discontent than is she were relating
any ordinary sequence of events.
Had it not been for her husband's
long illness, which ate up al>out all
they had been able to save and pre
vented his going back to what for so
many years had been his work, there
would be no story.
"Of course, he could not go back
to that type of work.'* said Mrs. Gray,
"and it is not easy for a middle-aged
man to get an opportunity to start
work at something new to him. So
try as he might, he was without work
for a long time.
"And then, just as we were about at
the end of our rope, he had an idea.
It was to start a lunch wagon up there j
on tile hill. Yon see what made that
particularly nice was that I could help
him With the work. Well, he pot the
wagon a-Kl it went" wonderfully. [

"ood but we stuck and managed to
pet along. But last year the neighbor
hood changed. The gas worts cnrna
in. and spoiled everything, and we bad
to give up the wagon.
"So we are looking around again
for something to do. But I don't feel
badly about it. You see we have no
children, only ourselves to look out
for. and we'll alw?."s get along some
And then Mrs. Gray gave me this
little kernel of thought. "Whenever I
feel myself getting the leasl bit dis

way we humans are ? down one day
and up the next. And if we're down
today It only means we'll be up t?"
I tfilnk there is enough of benefit
to all of us in that thought to war
rant a vote of thanks to Mrs. Gray.
