Tothk AMiiiTioL'f. Viewed fiom a
Bellish standpoint, thcieis nothing so
helpful us struggle in attaining au am'
bltion. Just think what a crowd tlieie
would bo at the top, if the mountain of
purpose were bored for a safety eleva
tor like some of the Alpine summits.
But Just because there is no beaten
track but only chilling reverses, thcie
is and always will be room for those
who are successful. The strenuous ef
fort that a writer bas to put forth, for
instance; tbe delays in recognition; the
pittance of pay. All these continue
year after year, wear out tbe feeble
hearted and givo larger Geld for tbe
lion-hearted who, even if unsuccessful
at first, out of their failures get
strength for later successes.

To Ckoakkhs: If the balloonist now
drifting aeioss the fiignl noith nsseit
ed that his beloved homeland diil not
exist, for the reason that it was out of
sight, he would not be inoie unieasoti
able than we who decide the world to
be rotrogruding and worthless as a
whole, just because wo ounelves, aie
retrograding or our outlook ischeet
less. The world is witltt anil the view
of any one person is narrow. Because,
perhaps, for us theieisuo good thing
at this moment wo may even deny blas
phemously tbat theie is hiinshiue for
anybody, for we try to believe only in
those things wo see. We see Bullish
ness but we do not see far enough, for
there is much else in tbe world that is
better; we see immorality near us but
we must be blind if wc conclude,
therefore, tbat all women or all men or
both are plunged iu a seething caldron
of vice. Take a broad view of life, and
despite murdeis, rapine, cruelty, you
will be convinced the bawls of time
move forward. Hear iu mind to your
comfort tbat the things of good aie
ever quieter than the things of evil,
and yet as the quiet river ei odes the
land more mightily and moie elTee

To AM The death of an individual,
however prominent, niatteis very little
except to a few immediate fiientls and
relatives. The few who Miller loss are
as nothing to the millions who, not
knowing the deceased, feel no poignant
giicf at his ilepaitmc. If nil 1 have
ever written before is false, this at
least is true and true universally.
Viewed from inside, our owu hearts,
some of us feel pulled up with impor
tance; viewed from without we are
only units iu a vastciowd, each unit
living its life and then perishing; tin
mourned and uncared for by most of
tbe units around. The only thing of
interest to tbesui vivois is the record of
things dou9. Tho trees we plant live
after us and .shelter geneiations that
follow; tho crops we grow feed other
mouths thau ours; our deeds, good or
bad, do live on; the good is not "in
terred with our bones " Tilings done
and not merely dieamed about are the
things that make us have interest for
our fellow cieaturos. And lhenwoikri
must be done without expectation of
full recognition. An ofteiing of
precious herviee to the woild is and
must be laigely impersonal, for though
our deeds may be widcspicad, our in
dividually is known to but few. This
is ns it is with our ruleis We know
them as names only, nnpeisonal they
remain always until we see them.
