Then the gymnast takes a peg in each hand and he begins to climb, one inch at a time, or two inches; and getting his strength cultured, reaches after awhile the ceiling. And it seems to me that these annoyances in life are a mor? al gymnasium, each worry a peg by which we are to climb higher and higher in Christian attainment. We all love to see patience, but it cannot be cultured in fair weal her. I...
