PRELUDE

E

VERY life ought to be a delight whether it is or not.

It should be a delight in itself and a delight to every other life.

Man was designed to have a happy time upon this beautiful earth, and if he does n't have it, the fault is his own.

“There is nothing better for a man," says the highest authority, “than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labor."

What is the use of laboring if a man is not to enjoy good from it?

Carlyle suggests that it is not “to taste sweet things, but to do noble and true things, that the poorest son of Adam dimly belongs. Show him the way of doing that, and the duhest daydrudge kindles into a hero."

That is the point exact.ý. Măn is to labor that he may rightfully eat and drink, and thus “make his soul enjoy good," or in other words. "do noble and true things.'

As a help in this direction the following pages have been made up by a “DAYDRUDGE."
