A FORWARD LOOK

of seeking wealth, and they did not care who suffered, if they might have their way. They didn't know what "home" is. For the true meaning of home is found in its spirit of sympathy for all those who dwell in it, in the spirit of happiness which makes the home a place in which to live.
Now all this is just as true of citizenship in a democracy. For the success of such a government as ours depends upon all its citizens. If people think only of their own pleasure, or only of getting rich, and care nothing for the sufferings and the difficulties of others, they are bad citizens. So the last group of selections in this part of your book brings to you poems and stories about service to others. The spirit of home and good citizenship is well expressed in a poem you will read, called "The House by the Side of the Road." The bravery of a railway conductor many years ago ; the devotion of men to the cause of liberty, in early times and also in the World War; the duty of all good citizens to work and to save; these are pictures that will be brought before you by the Magic Wand as it points the way to true happiness, which means being a good citizen in our great American family home.

In the selections of this group you will catch glimpses of men whose qualities made them worthy home-members and good citizens. Watch for these qualities as you read each selection. You will read of men who, like Abou Ben Adhem, loved their fellowmen, and you will learn about the man who said,

" Let me live in a house by the side of the road
And be a friend to man."

You will read of Gluck who regained by kindness and unselfish service to others what had been lost by cruelty; of George Washington who fought to win freedom for America; of the Oxford students who went to the aid of Belgium and France in the World War. You will see how work and thrift helped to make Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Lincoln useful citizens. You
