FEELING LIKE LIVING
To keep at work, without giving the vote in the nut-
lerto your own inclinations, is the envied capacity of the
man of fortitude and power. Emerson declares that wise
men are as lazy as they dare to he, and doubtless it is trite
that necessity is the mother of all kinds of labor as well as
of invention. It is to the credit of the rich man, who does
not feel the pinch of eny"need, if he chooses to be useful
and refuses to be idle.
who has not -been tempted at times to oust in his lot
with the incurahly playful ones? In the tropics, a work-
man whose livelihood produces itself almost ‘ “,
through the lavish gifts of nature, will earn a few dollars
and then decanap into the hush Iill hunger spurs him back
to his hated task again. He lives from hand to mouth,
and between showers he never thinks of a shelter. Born
to be a little lower than the angels. he is willing to descend
to a level only a little higher than the brute, until,’ its Kip-
ling puts it, the West grows very weary of trying to hustle
him and relinquishes the vain endeavor.
Yet, the best and most willingly industrious among us
is liable to a sudden attack of the sleeping sickness. There
come days when it is not good to be alive‘, when the best-
laid plans miscarry; when trusted agents bangle our tenderly
nurtured enterprises, or when the rank selfishness of others
defeats our altruistic scheming. There are days of weary
waiting, and hope deferred, and strange callousness on the
part of others; and at such times it is diiiicnlt to rouse our-
selves from lethargy and create new a dauntless heart within
us and deny ourselves the right tolie down in the dust and
ashes of groveling failure.
There is a pity for our weakness, if we give up the
nght-but what man or woman made in the image of the
Divine is willing to surrender to the seeming diabolic malev-
olence of fate? If only we hold on, and hope against hope,
the rift will come in the blonds by and by.-Ledger.
YOUNG PEOPLE AND OLD EXPERIENCE
The conddence of youth is a beautiful quality until it
orersteps the deferential borderline into wilful and petulant
conceit that is deliant of authority and unwilling to prod: by
experience. Those who thinl: they “know it all” are always
the chief sufferers, and they pay the heaviest toll for their
mistakes when the stern reckoning comes.
‘V: szudy history not merely to learn the dates of wars
and the reigns of sovereigns, but to observe what the grand
mistakes of humanity have been and to avoid them. We
study other lives and their errors to keep out of similar pit-
falls. Some of us chiedy learn by catastrophes and failures,
and all our knowledge is dearly bought by disaster. It is
hard for us at the time to believe that the lesson was worth
the price, but in the long run we shall discern the whys and

wllerefora of the present painfully educative event.
It does not seem strange that those who know no better
should go wrong, but what excuse have we when, with our
eyes wide open and in complete posscssion of the facts, we
malt: the deliberate, headstrong choice, close the book of the
lesson of experience and turn ollr back upon the teacher?
. may not see the reason for the counsels of aged
and oracular wisdom, but the reason is there. Humanity
has not prayed and toiled and agouized for uncounted centu-
ries without learning a few things that it is well for the
untried mettle of the newcomer to consider with profound
respect. Those who are willing lo learn and apply the lesson
are those who arrive the soonest at the goal, with the fewest
scars and the least discomtiture.

HOW LIGHTNING STRIKES
There are two classes of lightning strokes, direct and
indirect. The direct stroke is, as the name implies, some.
thing in the direct path of lightning to the ground. This
kind of stroke is so powerful as to render all present forms of
lightning protection useless. A power wire exposed to this
severe condition is most likely to be exposed to I power arc
which follows lightning to the ground and the arc often burns
lhelinc conductor in two. The means of support for the
power wire sometimes aid or add a destructive element to the
whims of lightning. l.Vooden pole lines are often inter-
rupted because of a shattered pole, and in a few .in.
stances dues lightning strike the wires midway between sup-
ports. Again, more trouble has been evident on wooden pole
lines than upon tower lines. This is because of the greater
resistance to the [low of lightning offered by the wooden pole
line, whereas the steel towers are of ground potential.
The indirect stroke of lightning it detrimental to good
service because of the effect produced. This induced stroke,
which affects the line in the immediate vicinity of the direct
stroke, builds up apotentinl nearest the path of the lightning
