little more or less of stone or wood ao
paint, the fashion of a cloak or hat.;
Indeed, the oui bone of this gin of the
world by the lo of soul powers ha al-
ready presented itself to ome of eur
moneyed men, and the thoht ha eys-
talized into numerous actsof p ul bene-
faction, for the c livation of the higher
life of the many. These few who e
no longer strivi for things, have dis-
covered that rea happine lihe not in
wealth and power, but that only by do.
ing for others can we reah the highest
expression of ourselves. In other words,
have found that thus only can we "'move
upward, working out the beast."
Alexander Gunn, "the Hermit of
Zoar," beautifully expreee this ideal
life as "without pride; to be always
good and simple and friendly; to love
and be loved. When the pomps and
vanities no longer hold us we will rec-
ognize each other as brothers and dear
comrades, and will be urprisedin this
new light to find how much of beauty,
of goodness and of simple joy has es-
caped us and also to find how complete
life is wen self is no longer first.
Ruskin has said that he held his talent
in trust for God's p6or; and his life
demonstrated hi sincerity. He inher-
ited $750,000, he made $600,000, and he
pave all but $40,000 (which yielded an
income of $1 500) to his brother man.
And this is te spirit in which he gave
it: "k is nothing to give food and med-
icine to the workman who has broken
his arm, or the decrepit woman wasting
in sickness. But it is something to use
your time and strength to war with the
waywardness and thoughtlessness of
mankind; to keep the ering workman
n your service until yo dave made him
m teraing one, and to direct your d -
low merchant to the tuwhich
ip judgment w*;:.J have lost."
All this is butalturisl, It may be said,
sadntat allpractical. But when we call
to mind how the spirit of brotherhood
has grown say since the fourteenth
century, when the equality of all men
and the gospel of labor first found ex
pression in English literature, through
Laigland's vision of Piers Plowman, and
when we take into consideration the
rest men who have not only given
their writings, but their lives, to estab-'
lish these griat principles, we can no
longer doubt Tht the movement is gain-
ing ground. Surely such men as us-
kin;, ingsley and others who have
"pointed the way" have not lived in
vain. All these were imbued with the
idea that universal brotherhood is the
tovcreign agent of economic refonna-
tn and the messages of their lives are
qul ly working in the minds of men,
m tibly perhaps, but still a living
