A The Mystery oi Life.
By Helen Cole.
HERE is no one in the whole universe to whom
life is not a mystery. It is the very opposite of
revelation. Lifeisamystery because it is not
revealed to us, but must take its own course as is
destined for us. If everything had been disclosed, life
would soon become monotonous, and there would be no
enjoyment in the surprises it has in store for us.
Is it not strange how the voice of conscience tells us
the right from the wrong? Many a person could tell you of
having changed their plans on account of the prompting of
this small voice.

There are no unexplored peaks to be climbed, or un-
found literatures to be put into the modern, or new races
to be discovered. All of the mysteries of the sphere have
been solved up to this time, except that of reaching the
poles. If they are ever reached, it seems as though there
will be nothing new left for explorers.
Some of the greatest mysteries of centuries ago are now
most easily solved on account of the development of thein-
U We might not be able to descend a steep mountain with-
out having something before us to shut off our view from
the deep -chasm below, but by not knowing where the next
step may take us, we can do it without fear. So it is with
our lives. If we knew what would happen next, we might
not be able to face it, but as it is, we go on hoping that all
will be well in the end.

When we attempt to look into our future, it is as if try-
ing to pierce the dense blackness of a dark night.

Some cannot understand why they do not meet with
the same degree of success as some other person, but it is
plain to others that they do not put forth the same honest
Bishop Sherlock said that most men take the least no-
tice of what is plain, as if' that was of no use, but puzzle
their thoughts to be themselves in those vast depths and
abysses, which no human understanding can fathom. If
each one would endeavor to solve the sphere of small things
unknown to him, he would become richer for it, while it
would only be a waste of time with the larger questions.
So let us try to solve the mysteries within our own
grasp, although they may seem but trifling, yet they may
lead to deeper ones. It is better to do small deeds well,
than to try to perform great tasks and fail.
Do something worth while?
Think more and talk less?
Keep your troubles to yourself?
Lend s helping hand?
At your own business?
Open your eyes?
Be a "booster"?

" Yes, I believe I do. What did you think of those 'J '
'comps' they handed us? "
" Where was that? I don't remember----oh, yes,
sure I do. Those opinions of theirs?
" Yes, I wonder what stars they had been reading? "
"They must have been dreaming instead of reading
stars, especially on those editorials."
" But don't you remember how we used te help them
at their class meetings? I remember one in particular at
Amstutz's where we helped them choose' their class pins
and, well, I guess we helped ourselves to their pop corn and
" Sure, and wasn't it kind of them? "
"Oh, yes. Didn't they certainly spiel on us at their
Junior entertainment in 1907? "
" Yes, nearly ausgespieltf'
" But how about that banquet that they gave the Glass
of 1907? Wasn't it the limit?"
U Blamed public, a 'bun shower' for those Seniors. But,
didn't we show them a time at our banquet in 1908? "
" Well, I guess! And didn't they look sick when we
sprung their own dirge on 'em, but more surprised when we
sang our jolly song? "
"Sayl Didn't we decorate for 'em at their Baccal.
" You bet we did. But I still often wonder if they ever
found those colors that we were accused of taking?"
" Which? Oh, yes, I know now. Those 'yellow' ones
that they tried to pawn off as Old Gold."
" But I noticed they called it 'yellow' on their invita-
tions, all right youl-"
" Yes, but everything was 'blue' to them on Com-
mencement night after they had seen those bogu programs
of ours! I'l1 see if I 'can find-lherds one, read it."
" Well, what do you think of that? I haven't seen one
of those programs in years. You read it, Bo."
" Well if that picture ain't a peachl I'll tell you Bo
didn't we hit the nail on the head?"
" Yes. But haven't we went some since we've been
up there? Eh?"
"Say that's quite a stunt."
" Well, let's look it over together."
