to win 11 place for himself I: the woi hi.
Hn hud rend sever:. I bonks about binve
youths who hml gone into some gient
city mid so attracted the man.igots of
great busines" institutions by their
nppcntnnce that the maniigcis hnd
Riven them employment at once and in
tho com so of n ynr or two these
youths were pushing up toward the
head places in the gro.it business insti
tutions. This youth wasn't such an
all lircil Rood worker nbout home, but
ho wns a good bit of a di earner and
liked to lip ure on tint fortune he was
going to gather in when lie got into
thd world, lie nientioii-d nis dosito to
his paternal ancostoi, but he did not
meet with any heaity oncourunmeat.
After henring his story tho old man
studied a moment and then said. "My
son, I can't say that I know much
about this business of conquciing the
world that you talk about. It has al
ways kept mo tolerably busy humping
nleng and taking cate of the family
grocery nnd dtess bills so Unit I haven't
hnd tiiuo to think about doing up the
woild in genenil, but my judgment is
if you want to go into the woild con
quel iug business 11 good place to stall
woiild boiight here ill home. If it is
work you mo hrinkei lug after I think
you cm scale up quite a good dual of
it right hole at home, but if you gut
out among sti unguis you miy Inula
good ilual of tioublu.
Tho youth, however, thought his
father waa a fogy, and took no stock
in his lemniks. llu wns satisfied that
mound home was no place for him
When the outhN father sa v that his
sou was fiti uck on the idea of going out
to conquer tho world he said nothing
moie, but the youth's mother was woi
tied nbout her darling boy and insiMid
that her husband should not allow the
poor ilenr to go. Right there, however,
the old mini, who hadn't tinvulei! much
but who wns conceded to hnvo u lot of
cood horsu sense, ditleied ftom his
wife. "It is my opinion," said lie,
'that if tho boy has made up his mind
to tackle tho woild it will bo 11 good
idea to let him tackle 'ei ; ho may leal u
quite a heap in the courso of a few
months that ho doesn't know now."
So tho old man gave the boy 120 as n
starter and turned him loose. The boy
tackled tho city, but somehow or other
bis appearance didn't seem to strike
any managers of any great business
concerns and the 125 faded away like a
piece of custard pie when a healthy
boy mnkes a front and side attack.
Wtitn be had gotten down to the Inst
50 cent piece he happened to stiiko i
job of moving heavy boxes inton wan-,
house from a diny. He hnd to woi h
harder than ho had ever supposed 11
boy could work and for his labor he re
ceived a stipend of tl 25 a day. He
slaved with his job for two weeks and
then wrote to his mother that he was
lonesome to see her And his mother
worked the old man for enough cash to
pay her boy's railroad fate from tho
city to tho homo station Tho boy is
feeding cattle at picsuuton the home
place and tinsn't .said a woid about go

Two squirrels who lived in a liousu
in tho woods were talking over ti.u
question of winter supplies. "I under
stand from the weather piediotoia,'
said one, "that this is to ben very mild
wintor and that theto is no need to lay
up any considerable amount of stoics."
"Maybe so." lemarked the1- second
squirrel, "but I mid an undo who lis
tened to the talk of a gang of weather
predictors who said there wouldn't be
enough cold weather to make ice; he
