THOUGHTS ON BUSINESS
WALDO PONDUAY WARREN
SELECTING A MAN
PICKING out the right man for the place, it often measures
the difference between success and failure in a business.
More often It measures the difference between a mod
crate success and a phenomenal one.
Twenty or more years ago a carriage factory was started
with the Idea of doing things in an original way, and a man
was chosen to carry out the idea. He had had no previous
experience in that line, but he had the right Idea and grasped
the plan enthusiastically. The work began on a simple scale,
o that the Inexperienced man was able to feel his way. The
business grew until it attained great proportions. The same
man is still at the head of it, not as the owner, but as the
manager. He proved to be the right man for the place. It
would be difficult to Imagine how he might have made the
business more successful In that particular line.
In thinking of this the thought occurred to me, suppose
some other man had been chosen In the beginning. Suppose
he had had wide experience, but a different' idea. He might
have made more rapid progress at the start, or he might have
turned the whole business into other channels and have given
It a different character. Ho might not have been able to grow
up with It, or might have left it after the first year's trial.
The present greatness of the business might have been un
known to-day If It hadn't been that the right man was chosen
when the business was small.

PEOPLE SHOULD BE EDUCATED TO HOLD THEIR
DIRECTORS, THE MEN WHOM THEY ELECT TO
ENACT THEIR LAWS AND CONDUCT THEIR AF
FAIRS, TO THE SAME RESPONSIBILITY THAT
STOCKHOLDERS IN A PRIVATE CORPORATION DE
MAND OF THE DIRECTORS WHOM THEY ELECT.
IT IS NOT SUFFICIENT THAT PUBLIC OFFICIALS
BE SIMPLY HONEST. THEY MUST DISPLAY WISDOM AND FORE
SIGHT THE SAME AS IS REQUIRED IN PRIVATE LIFE.
Honestly conceived laws to compel a service that will meet with
tho reasonable approval of the patrons of a road and prevent discrimi
nations, stock watering and stock jobbery arc right and proper, but to
go far beyond that and impose UXREASOXABLE BUKDKNS
AND UNIfAiU RESTRICTIONS looks to tho defeat of the very
purpose which it i3 sought to attain.
WE STILL HAVE HOPE THAT WE ARE GOINGS TO BE LET
ALONE AND ALLOWED TO RUN OUR OWN BUSINESS. DESTROY
THAT HOPE AND WE WILL HAVE IN THIS COUNTRY AN ERA OF
MISERY THAT WILL SEND TO ETERNAL DAMNATION THOSE WHO
ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR IT. THE SMOKELESS CHIMNEY, THE SI
LENT FORGE AND THE IDLE HAMMER WILL SPELL THE STORY.
GOVERNMENT INTERFERENCE, which has led tho rail
road heads to fear that the operation of the roads is to bo taken out of
their hands and turned over to commissions, is THE GREATEST
MENACE TO THE COUNTRY'S GROWTH TODAY.

QUALITY WILL TELL
NOWHERE can quality be made to express care and skill more than
in laundering. You can get clothes washed anywhere. But
steam laundering means more than washed. It means, 1st thor
ough cleansing with steam and harmless soap; 2d finishing by good
machinery and skilled laDor. Plain clothes show the result as well as
fancy articles. Won't you let us show you? ' PHONE 160

& Let Children Be Children. $
n Professor MICHAEL VINCENT O'SIIEA of Wisconsin University.
OVERESTIMATION IS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM THAT CON
FRONTS US IN THE EDUCATION AND BRINGING UP OF
OUR CITY CHILDREN. DEGENERACY AND MENTAL DE
FICIENCY IN A FEW GENERATIONS WILL BE THE RE-
OF. THE PRESENT SYSTEM OF LIFE IF WE DO NOT
A HALT TO THE NERVOUS STRAIN AND UNHEALTHY
AMUSEMENTS THAT WE NOW SUBSTITUTE FOR CHILD PLAY.
We have the example of the old world to warn us against our pres
ent course of OVERSTIMULATING OUR GROWING OHIL
DREN". There are more mentally deficient and degenerato porsoiw
in Italv than in any other country, and that is because the YOUNG
LEAD AN ADULT LIFE AND ARE EARLY FORCED INTO
MATURITY by the life lived in the noise and publicity of the streets.
GERMANY HAS FORGED AHEAD AS A NATION BECAUSE IT
HAS SOLVED THE EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS BY KEEPING ITS
CHILD LIFE SIMPLE, BY CULTIVATING NATURAL AND INDUSTRIAL
TENDENCIES AND BY SAFEGUARDING HEALTH.
What we need in America is to DRAW OUR CHILDREN
AWAY PROM THE NERVE DESTROYING AMUSEMENTS,
PROVIDE THEM WITH AMPLE PLAY FACILITIES remote
from the confusion of tho streets, and in school emphasize the indus
trial, manual and artistic rather than the MERELY' TECHNICAL.
Intercourse With. United
States Always Beneficial.
Dy JOAQUIM NALUCA, Brazilian Ambassador.
MUCH as the futuro generations will wonder at the progress
of our time they will wonder still more that tho two great
sections of our continent remained so late in history almost
I UNKNOWN TO EACH OTHER. The United States,
with its high civilization, CAN DO NO WRONG TO ANY NA
TION. Intimate contact with you will, under whatever conditions,
33RING ONLY GOOD AND PROGRESS TO THE OTHER
THE ONLY CERTAIN EFFECT I CAN SEE OF A PERMANENT
AND INTIMATE INTERCOURSE OF LATIN AMERICA WITH YOU
IS THAT IT WOULD BE SLOWLY AMERICANIZED THAT IS, THAT
IT WOULD BE IN DIFFERENT MEASURES PENETRATED WITH
YOUR OPTIMISM, YOUR SELF RELIANCE AND YOUR ENERGY.

Our Chief Menace.
By Dr. ALLAN McLANfc HAMILTON. Insinity Expert.
ATIONAL ilegenonicy, I am afraid, is our chief menace.
I take Xew York as a fair example of general standards.
OUtt BOirEMiAXISM IS BRUTAL, VULGAK. It
has no fellowship or camaraderie in it. It is a region of
cafes and restaurants, where men and women prey upon one another.
OUII SOCIETY IS IMITATED WITHOUT OIUGIXAUTY,
with absurd exhibitions of loud taste and ill proportioned artistry.
WE ARE FREE TO THE VERGE OF OPEN REVOLT AGAINST
THE LAWS OF MOSES, THAT ARE NEEDED, BUT IGNORED.
Wo havo all the license of foreign decadence, with a UNIQUE
DEGENERACY OF OUR OWN that no foreign city would en
dure because OF ITS CRUELTY, ITS SAVAGERY. Wo read
chiefly false exaggerations of science and outrageous exposes of for
bidden crimes. Of course, press censorship is impossible in the pres
ent state of political conflict.
I CONSIDER THAT A LARGE PART OF THE SO CALLED EMO
TIONAL INSANITY THAT LEADS TO CRIME IN NEW YORK IS
DUE TO THESE SENSATIONALLY FALSE AND BLATANT EXPO
SURES IN CERTAIN NEWSPAPERS OF DISASTERS THAT WE NEVER
HEARD OF BEFORE AND WOULD NEVER HEAR OF AGAIN EX
CEPT FOR THEIR IMPRESSION UPON HALF FORMED MINDS AND
Our novels where can you get one that's WORTH READING ?
It is either a wildly improbable problem or a silly colonial storv. WE
ARE AFFLICTED WITII BATHOS, BUT WE HAVE NO
TIME FOR PATHOS.
