Blaster Your Mood * .
Conquer your moods.
Don't let your moods conquer you.
People who give way to moods never
amount to much because they are
never masters of themselves.
They never know in the morning
whether they are going to do a good
day's work or not. whether they are
going to be a cheering or a depressing
influence on the people around them.
If they feel like being good tem
pered they will be.
If they feel like "snapping" at every
thing they will snap.
People who suffer from moods should
be careful about their habits.
They should be regular about meals ,
sleep , exercise and work.
The condition of the health has much
to do with moods , and there is noth
ing that contribute ? so much to health
as absolute regularity.

egi t * , before their departure , ox-
pifjsecl confidence that its work wouM
soon be perpetuated in the form oi a
permanent tariff commission , toward
the attainment of which their labors
have been directed.
Tlie convention was small in num
bers , but large in enthusiasm. Its del
egates represented great commercial ,
agricultural and civic bodies and many
were United States Senators , Congress
men or national and state officials.
James W. Van Cleave , chosen as its
permanent chairman , had behind him
scores of members of the National As
sociation of Manufacturers , and from
the platform on the last day Thatl
Snow , who declared himself "just a
plain , unattached fanner of Indiana , "
joined with his predecessors in what
had been a remarkable unanimity of
expression from various sections , pro
fessions and occupations for the estab-
lisbment by Congress of a permanent
scientific and non-partisan tariff com
During the session hundreds of mes
sages of congratulation and encour
agement were received. The messages
bore the names of many great manu
facturing firms and business houses.
None came from Andrew Carnegie , although -
though the Pittsburg ironmaster had
previously expressed his approval of
the purposes of the convention.
Before the final stroke of Chairman
Van Cleave's gavel each delegate
pledged himself to continue in his
home territory the work for which the
convention Avas called.
The permanent committee of TOO , of
which .T. W. Van Cleave is chairman ,
will give the widest possible distribu-
tion to the records of the convention
proceedings and carry on the work of
agitating for the creation of a permanc
