A FORWARD LOOK

you will read about in "Thanksgiving at Todd's Asylum," was utterly unsuccessful as the world measures success. He had little money, and spent what he had to help the poor, so that the neighbors called his farm "Todd's Asylum." But no one can read the story of that Thanksgiving dinner without feeling that a millionaire could not buy such happiness as these simple people poss .~.,sed. In another story of this group, the great English writer, Charles Dickens, recalls the Christmas tree of his childhood days; every object on it is seen bathed in fairy light. And through the simple festivals of home the fairy light also shines on all mankind: all round the world,

" The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"

To Tennyson the ringing of the New Year Bells brings a" prayer for a thousand years of peace, in which the larger heart and the kindlier hand will drive out the darkness of selfishness and hatred. Gluck is happy, not because of gold, but because of his faithfulness and helpfulness to others.
It is so, also, with the homeland. America is loved by the poet not for its greatness in war, but because it is the home of men who live as brothers. As another poet puts it, while we feel pride in the great expanse of the land we call America, it is really great because it is the home of free men, open to wanderers from afar who wish to breathe the air of freedom. The stories of early days in America, the deeds of Washington and the Revolutionary heroes, the events that have given meaning to our flag, are like the great English writer's memories of the Christmas tree of his boyhood. For they are reminders of the things that make America a homeland whose history, like the history of some old house, is dear to us through a thousand recollections.
Now the secret of the Magic Wand's power to point out the way to happiness is very simple. Gluck's brothers thought only
