When do you expect to do anything
distinctive in life? When do you ex
pect to get oat o't the ranks of
mediocrity? The menwho do original
things are fearless. There is a lot of
dare in their make-np, a great deal of
boldness. They are not afraid to take
chances, to shoulder responsibility, to
endure' inconvenience and privation.
There never was a time when the
.qaallty of 'courage was So absolutely
indispensable in the business world
as it is today. It does not .matter
how many success qualities you pos
sess, young' man, if you lack courage
you will 'never get anywhere. Not
even honesty or perseverance will
take its place. There is no substi
tute for courage.
It does not matter iow well edu-.
cated you may be, or how good a train
ing you may have" had for your voca-,
tion, if yon are, a hesitator, if you
lack that courage which dares to risk
all on" your judgment, you will never
get 'above mediocrity.
' The men who stand at the top of
their line of endeavor stand there be
cause "they have die courage of their
convictions. They had the courage
to climb, had' the nerve to undertake
even against the advice of others.

The Power ef Enthusiasm.
Enthusiasm is one magnet of power.
Ton must fire every event with it,
touch thoughts and acta with it; it will
transmute dross, into gold, drudgery
into delight What matters if the soul
which lives beside .you is cold and
selfish. Set him a good example! Joy
is sunshine and he will feel it Every
irksome task is a chance for power.
For the qualities which they bring out
are God's gifts which It us to enjoy
better things. Easy things will come,
if you have spent your heart's blood
on gaining strength, for the very goal
of power is the ease which comes from
strength. We laugh at things and peo
ple who used to cow or annoy us, we
do gracefully and swiftly the tasks,
once so hard. One by one, we havs
unriveted our chains, we are free!

Sensation In "Mystery Ship."
Sydney, Australia, has had a nov
elty in the shape of a "mystery ship."
An American steamer, the Coronet,
arrived by night in the harbor unsig
naled and unannounced. It was peo
pled by a strange-looking crowd of
men, women and children. The offi
cers were dressed in clerical attire
long coats and white ties. Nobody
was allowed on board save the gov
ernment medical officer and the hap
bor master. The Sydney reporters
ascertained that the ship is connected
with the newest American sect, the
"Holy Ghost and Us," whose head, a
man named Stanford, claiming to be
the reincarnated Elijah, is on board
The Coronet has been cruising for

Success Never to Be Counted in Piles
What an unfortunate thing that the
idea should be dinned into the ear of

to fail that is, to fail to make money,
to accumulate property.
It is not a disgrace to fail; but it is
a disgrace not to do one's level best

heroic endeavors, their brave battle
for years with obstacles, playing a
losing game with heroism. Their
great patience and wonderful self-control
under the criticism of those who
do not understand them are evidence
that they have succeeded. The pos
session of a noble "-character is the
greatest evidence In the world that
one has succeeded.
On the other hand, if a man has
gotten a fortune, but has left his man

getting it, be is still a failure, no mat
