now confronted. Our Industrial lite hsj b(eome
so eiiiiiplex, Its rate of moiement to rapid, nnd
sperlalluitiou and (llfTerentlstlon m Intense that
w find ourselves: face lo face with conditions
that were practically unknown In this nstlon
half a century go, The power of the) force of
nil Ins been cjrratty Increased, and It Is nccrssary
for our setf-prmrrvatlon that we should slmllsrly
strengthen the forces for good. We are nil of us
bound to work towards lids end. No ono of in
ran do cieijthlnj?, but each of us can do some
thing, nnd if we work together His nugregate of
these somethings will be tery considerable.
There are, of course, a thousand different wajs
In which Hie noik can be done, and each man
mul chooso ss his tastes and his powers Mil
him, If he is to do the best ot wlilrli be is caps
lile. Hut all the kinds of nolle must be carried
along on certain definite lines, It good Is lo come.
All the work must be attempted as, on tlie whole,
this Young Men'n Christian association work has
been done; that Is, In a spit It of good will
toiiaul all and not of hatred toward somei In .1
splilt In Aihlcli to bioad chiilly for mankind
theie Is adOcd a keen nnd healthy aaultjr of
tnliid. We inmt letaln rar lf respect, each nnd
all of us, nnd wc inetst bcw.ue alike of mushy
sentimentality and ot cmy and hatred.
It ought not to be necessary for me to iv.il 11
you igalnst mere sfiitimentallly,agalnst the plilt
nntluup.v and chiilly, which aie not merely In
sufficient but harmful. It Is eminently desir
able that wc should none of lis be liant-lieiiiliil,
bul It Is no less desirable that 110 should not
be soft-headed. I leally do not know which
naallly Is most productive of nil to iiiiiikbid
in Hie long urn, baldness of hcait or softness
of head. Naked charity is not what we per
manently want, 'there aie, of couise, ccitaln
chives, stttli as joumr chlldien, widows with
laigc families or (tippled or lory aged people,
or ricii strorij men, tcmpniarlly citishcel by
"luniilnif lulsfoiliiue, on whn-e behalf wc may
kaic to make) a fi rink and direct appeal to
charity, and who can be the leclplcnts of It with
out any loss of self tesperr. Hut liking us as a
whole, taking tlic mass ot Amriicans, ne do not
want charity, wo do not want sentimentality,
wo mciely want to learn how to net both )n
dlilchially and together in sucli fashion as to
enable us to hold our own In the woild, to do
good to olhcis accoidlrg to the measure of otir
opportunities, and to icrelve good from otliers
in wayis which will not entail on our pait any
loss of self icspect.
It ought to he 1.0 less unnecessary to ay
that any man who tiles to solio the gieat
problems that cnnfinnl us by an appeal to
anger nnd passion, to tirnoi.iiico and folly, to
malice and cmy, is not, nnd noier can be
aught but an enemy of the vcij- people ho pro
fesses to Left lend. In the wolds of Lowell, it Is
far safer to adoDt for n motto "All men up"
thin "Some men down." Speaking bioadlv we
cannot in tlie? long run benefit one man by Hi"
downfall ot another. Our energies can as u
rule be cinploied to much better ndiantage in
uplifting some thin in iiulllng down olhcis. Of
eomse there must sometimes be pulling down
too. Wo have no business to blink at eiils, and
iiheie it is neccssaiy that the knife should lie
Used, let It be used unsparingly, lint let it be
used intelligently. l hen there Is need of a
ehaslia lemeely, apply it, but do not apply it in
Hie meie spiiit ot bale. Xoimallv a pound of
constitution is worth a ton ot destruction.
Degradation in Malice.
Time is ricftrndallon lo us if we feel eniv and
malice and lulled of one's neighbor, for any
cause, and If we cmy him mcielv because of
his liolics, we show- wc b.iie n s..ies low ideals.
.Money is a good thing, it U a foolish aflectalion
to deny it. But it is not Hie only gewd thing,
and after a ccilnin amount has been amassed
it ee.ises to bo the chief cun of matciial good
tilings. It Is far belter, for instance, to do well
a bit of work which is well worth doing. I do
not care whether this woik is (hat of an engi
neer on a gieat laihoad or captain of a fishing
boat, or foiemin in a factoiy or machine shop,
or section boss, or diiUion chief or assistant
astioiinuier in an ohsctvaloiy, or a .second lieu
tenant snmewheMC in China or the Philippines
each mm ot these has an impoitant piece of
woik and if he is leallv inteiesteel in it and
has the light stud in bini, lie will "lie alto
gelhor too pi 0111I of what he Is I'olug and loo
intent on doing it well, to waste his lime in
I'rom the days when the chosen people leee'ned
the! decalogue, to our own, envy and malice
hue been leeognleel as evils, and woe lo those
who appeal to them. To hicak the tenth coin.
maiidmenl is no move nioiat now- than it has
been for Hie past thhly ecnliuies. The ii(o
ot eniy is not only .1 elaiificious but al-o a
mean iee, for it is alw.ijs a confession ot In
feiioiitj. Il lliay piovokc conduct which will
lie fi nil ful of wiciiig doing lo others; and il
imi.t c.we mi-eiy lo tho man who feels it. It
will not he any the lews finitleil of v long and

gain the upper hand in hU soul would mean that

Liny, malice anil hatred are such pissions, and
they aie just as bill if diicrtcd against a class
or gioup of men as If eliieetcd against an indiv
idual. What wc need in our leaeleis and teach
ers is help in siippiessin: Mich feelings, help in
arousing iiiiel directing the feelings that uie tholr
eslieine opposite. Woe to us as a natiuu it we
eier follow the lead of men whu seek not to
smother but to iull.ime the wild beast qualities
of the human hemt! In social nml indiistiial, no
