IS IT WORTH WHILE?
Just Exactly What You Make of Yourself Today You Will
Be in Planes and Realms and States Beyond.
By KLLA Wilt
That Is a Eood question to ask your
self It you re on the verge of a temp
tation to do something you would not
like tha whole world to know.
Perhaps It Is a matter of the emotions,
and you aro decid
ing that happiness
lies tor you only In
the possession of
some other man's
wife or some other
You have con
that this person is
your true mate,
and that life can
never be complete
until your affinity
belong to you.
First look about
you and study the
people who have
one as you are de
ciding to do.
It will not be difficult to find one cou
ple who defied the world and hasten to
gratify such, desires now repenting at
leisure, showing by appearance and ac
tions, that happiness has not been at
tained. Another will be found In the
divorce courts, trying to untie the knot
It was so difficult to tie. And still another
living in open discord.
And you may search many a day before
you find a man. and woman who have
violated any principle to obtain their
happiness, who are both growing in
character, nobility and worth.
When you do find that one it will
prove the exception to the general rule
and an' exceptional emotion which ac
tuated the conduct. Remember that the
most terrible pain life can give in the
way of renunciation, does not compare
with the slow, ugly misery of getting
what you want at any cost, and then
finding It Is not what you thought not
what you needed.
Perhaps your temptation lies In the way
of making money.
Tou know of methods not quite regu
lar, yet not open to the punishment of
And you are turning all your mental
powers toward the idea of getting rich
by those methods.
' But 'stop again and ask: "Is it worth
Will you find enough happiness In the
result - to pay for all the consequences
which may follow?
These consequences may be fine, prison
or open disgrace.
But they will be worse than that, for
they will mean a loss of self respect
And they will cheapen your character
and make you feci the need of constant
excitement to avoid sitting alone
with yourself. They will reflect
upon those you love, those who bear
your name, and there will be an inter
rogation mark always placed after that
name in generations to come.
.Is it worth while?
Any day a great cataclysm of nature
may occur which will destroy your for
tune, but your character can never be
Just exactly what you are making
yourself today you will be In planes and
realms and states beyond this earth.
Nothing is worth while but nobility of
AH your wonderful Inventions.
All your house vast 'and tall.
All your great gun-fronted vessels,
Kvery fort and rveiy wall.
With-the passing of the ages.
They shall pass and they shall fall.
As you elt among the Idols
That your avarice jrave birth.
An you count the hoarded treasures
That you think of priceless worth,-
Time Is tllKKlng tombs to hide them
In the bosom of the earth.
There shall come a great convulsion
Or a rushing tidal wave.
Or a sound of mighty thunder
From a subterranean cave.
And a boanfitiK world's possessions
Shall be burled in one grave.
From the Onturles of Silence
We are bringing hack again
Curled vase and bust and column
And the gods they worshiped then.
In the strange unmentloned cities
Built by prehlstorio men.
Did they steal, and lie, and slaughter?
Did they steep their souls in shame?
Plil they sell eternal virtues
Just to win a pasxlng fame?
Did they give the gold of honor
For the Uusel of a name?
We sre hurrying all together
Toward the silence and the night;
There is nothing worth the seeking
Hut the sun-kissed moral height
There Is nothing worth the doing
But the doing of the right.
The American Boy
In the announcement of the business
houses, particularly those of bankers,
brokers and trust companies, yuu will
often see a statement like this:
' CaplUl J1.000.000
Surplus, all earned... 1,500,000
This means that tl)e business house an
bounce to tho public that It has an
actual reserve fund, available, at all
times, that serves aa an insurance in any
- Tha workinginan who has a steady job,
whose bills aro all paid, and who has
000 In tha bank, Is another type of the
same business methods. If this working
man' expnes can, In hard times, be
kept down to (1 per day, he Is amply in
sured for (00 dajs.
Now, this form of surplus can be made
available in many other ways. Fur the
American boy who has Just begun work
two reserves are necessary. Tha first Is
strength reserve; tha second is cash re
serve. We will take up the former In
this article and the question of cash re
serve is another..
A working boy's capital, In Ills first sim
ple business activity, In his health and
strength. Tho valuo of this kind of capi
tal IS well Illustrated In this incident.
Two boys were out sailing in a small
sailboat off the coast ot Massachusetts.
A squall struck the boat when It was
a mil front shore and it turned over.
Xhe boys succeeded In climbing onto the
iplurned bottom, but tho wind and tide
tarried thent on to sea. They determined
to drop off and try to rcch shore by
wlrumlAg. One of the boy was an In
veterate cigarette smoker. Ills heart
actioa was not up to normal, and he had
little or no control over his breathing,
for the lungs do not thrive on inhaled
The other boy had all the strength with
which nature and herd work had en
dowed lilm. H knew he could reach
Shore. But when he saw that the other
boy could not hold out, l.e wondered
.whether he ba4 strength to eave himself
Officer, Summon a Gendarme
and his friend.
He tried, and hs succeeded.
Business is full of overturned boat.
That is, there are always arising condi
tions that put double the work on the
worker, and the American Boy who want
to keep to the front must be ready for
the call of the heavy burden ot mora
If he is in flue trim, with mind clear,
and body not out of order through fool
ish habits, he will be able to stand the
strain. Nut only that, but It will be a
positive pleasure to him, when he feels
the load settle down, to brace himself
for It and know that he can, by steady
force, lift It.
After it I done, he is not only no worse
off he Is decidedly a better American
boy. ILe has discovered that he has a
great strength reserve, that he can draw
on It, and that It will respond to his call;
that the very us of it, ilk money at In
terest In the bank, will actually Increase
If. then, the American boys wants t
start in business on a safe basis, he must I
be able to issue ait announcement, like
the banker's, but In these words:
Eurplus (all ready for use)
As much more Ftrengtti
Business men get a surplus capital In
money by earning It. The American boy
will get hi surplus capital in strength by
earning it. Or, better, perhaps, by letting
it earn Itself.
This Is accomplished by living accord
ing to a few a.mple rules:
1. Simple food.
I. Deep breathing.
3. Some time out of door.
4. No destructive habit.
(. Plenty of sleep.
Then the strength reserv put the
American boy In line for the next thing,
which is 'cash reserve.
Meanwhile, If the boat turn bottom up.

A WOMAN'S REWARD
As a Mother She Gets More Out of Life Than a Father, and
as a Spinster is Never as Useless as a Bachelor.
In the spirit of discontent which the
time are fostering, the housewife look
at her husband with envious eye be
cause the sun puts a limitation on his
day' work, and her I never done. If
she will look a little farther along the
years to the day when his tasks are
ended, and her go on, he will thank u
merciful Providence that she ws born
a woman, and that from the day when
he was big enough to sit In a chair and
hold th baby of the family In her lap,
until her hands are still forever, there
will alway be work for her to do.
The ordained custom of life are so
much kinder to women than to men that
a woman old age I aweetened by that
which I denied an old man. Work, ew
tng, knitting, a baby to hold, a little
housework to do all are task that be
come magnified joy when a woman 1
too old for arduous labor, and while she
la puttering around them a man of her
age, too fesbla for office work or manual
labor and unfitted by training for the
little task that round out her day, sits
with folded hand and wait.
II know aa no woman can eve,' know
th tragedy of enforced uselessnes and
Idleness, lis la I lie first to reach that
condition when nothing remain in lit
but to alt and wait.
And If love I the greatest thing In th
world, a all women say, thero is added
reason for a woman to b grateful that
she Is a woman,' for It I poured out on
her all through her life, and that which
a roan receive come in intermittent
dribble. She raises the children, nurse
them, bind up their bruises, wipes tbelr'
tears away and wins their love. He I
engaged in a task as hard In earning the
money to support them, a task without
the reward of love, for, while mother I
all the world to them, he la only the tnu
who comes home night.
They remember the bruises mother
bound up longer than they remember th
dollar their father earned. Her ministra
tion are warm and loving and hi have
a metalllo ring. Ilttl wonder that to
the end of her day she reap a harvest
of love, and he, who did hi part a faith
fully a she did her, reap only Indif
ference or tolerance.
All the pretty Illusion of life are left
to her long after ha ha been stripped of
them. He learn early In business that
those In whom he trusted have knifed '
him. Iter most serious lesson In th total
depravity of the race I an experience
with a neighbor who borrow cream and
pay back In skim milk.
She spend her life In mlnlatratloa and
personal service, yet la so blind that
sometimes she despise her lot and wishes

more of lfe than a father; as a spinster
