The Mirage of Life.
After traveling for hours across a
trackless waste of burning desert
sand,, tormented by thirst, the traveler
discovers his supply of water has fail
ed. The last muddy drops are drunk.
His eyes, ears and month arc gradual
ly filling up with the fine alkali sand,
until he feels a cupful of water would
be worth its weight in gold. At this
moment, when his mind and body are
in such & state of torment, he sees
to his delight iu the distance a large
lake. Its bunk* covered with palms.
Its surface with little islands of re
freshing green. Cheered by the sight
he presses oil, eager to quench his
ihirst. As he goes the lake recedes.
At each advance it, too, moves, until
at last, tortured by thirst, exhausted
by fatigue, he siuks iu despair. Ha
has beru chasing the mirage of the
desert. The effects of mirage are ex
traordinary. It is the very phantas
magoria of nature; her wildest, most
wayward and most, fantastic sport.
She creates the illusion of laughing
wares, sparkling lakes, verduous is
lands. feathery palms, blooming flow

type of life itself, luriug man onward
The Illusion of Life.
Life is an illusion, not a delusion.
To paint wood or stone so that it will
be taken for stone or iron is a delu
sion. To paint a picture so that earth
and sky are not mistaken for what
they seem, but produce the emotion of
earth nnd sky, this is illusion and is
the painter's art. The law of illusion
is written large in everyday life. Chil
dren live iu the world of make believe,
and grown folks hunger for it too.
We live in a world where our senses
trick us. Our earth seems larger than
any star, the moon is small, sky ia
blue, clouds are fleecy, the sun re
volves nbout the earth—at least so it
seems. Life lures us on, dangles the
prize before us, making sure to keep
It just beyond our grasp, if uot our
touch. Youth has the freshness of
morn to travel in, middle age blaze of
high noon, old age evening shadows,
twilight—and after that the dark. The
prize lies at the end of the race,
though Abraham never owned a foot
: of ground, and Moses never crossed
the Jordan: he only saw the "sweet
fields beyond the swelling flood."
standing "dressed in living green."
But they reached the great goal. So
we fathers promise a bicycle for the
boy. and a Pbi Beta Kappa key dangles
before the man, and both are lured
through many a drab school day till
! the education is finished.
The Will o' the Wisp.
Is the rainbow necessary hk the rain?
Are clouds only God's sprinkling pots,
or are tliey the cauTas of the sky? Are
apple blossoms only to produce apples,
or are they for bocs and lovers' eyes?
Should one have vegetable garden and
no flowers? Is truth merely to be
weighed and measured. or is it io be
drenmed, felt, and imagined? The great
est truths of life .are only apprehended
through illusions. Knowledge is a pass
ing from one illusion to another. As
trology leads to astronomy, alchemy
to chemistry, savagery to civilization.
The thousands dying on European bat
tlefields, tilled with patriotism—illu
sion? Possibly, but on the way to a
higher patriotism. The huatben in his
blindness is on his way to the cross
of Calvary. Illusion is the law of
growth. Who can define the miracle of
birth and the mystery of death? Who
knows what Is health, when the weak
•lng lives tlirough years and the athlete
dies in a few sick clays? Who can
define wealth save as accumulation of
things? Love is an illusion. Many a
June bride has most cried tier eyes out
before September. But when the hon
eymoon went (iown it brought the
steady, certain light of a new day. The
lover and lass are now father and
mother. The man lias his dream of
success and the woman of love Neither
ever has It quite fulfilled. Illusion is
Cod's way of get;ing things done.
The gabby man Is sure a bore.
His mouth should have a clutch.
For he couW sjnr a whole lot more
And not talk &a!f as much.
