SERVICE AND THRIFT
GRADATIM by JOSIAH GILBERT HOLLAND

NOTES AND QUESTIONS
Biography. Josiah Gilbert Holland (1819-1881) was an American poet and journalist. He was born on a Massachusetts farm and studied medicine, but took up literary work and became editor of the Springfield Republican. He was one of the founders of Scribner's Magazine and was for a time its editor.
Discussion. 1. Where does the poet imagine the foot of the ladder to be? 2. How is the ladder built? 3. By what kind of deeds do we ascend this ladder? 4. What foes does the third stanza tell us we must conquer if we wish to mount the ladder? 5. Notice how Longfellow in the following lines from his poem, "The Ladder of St. Augustine," has expressed the same thought in a different way:

" Saint Augustine! Well hast thou said,
That of our vices we can frame
A ladder, if we will but tread
Beneath our feet each deed of shame!

We have not wings, we cannot soar;
But we have feet to scale and climb
By slow degrees, by more and more,
The cloudy summits of our time."

6. Mention some noble deed of which you have read in this book. 7. What opportunities have boys and girls to do noble deeds? 8. Many opportunities are offered American boys and girls for individual service; what opportunities do the Boy Scouts, the Camp Fire Girls, and the Junior Red Cross offer for organized service? 9. What part does your school take in these national organizations for service? 10. Find in the Glossary the meaning of: gradatim; grandly; mastered; deposed. 11. Pronounce: vaulted; passion; vanquished.
