Just Exactly What You Make of Yourself Today You Will Be in Planes and Realms and States Beyond. If 'v.,-- "'a '" 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 woman's husband. You have con vinced yourself 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 the law. 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 KLKIt WILCOX. whlle7" 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 destroyed. 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 character. 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 Be Prepared. Hy THOMAS 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 emergency. - 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.. - 1L 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 cigarette smoke. 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 By Tad TAIH'KR. and his friend. He tried, and hs succeeded. III. 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 work. 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 It. 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: Capital Strength 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. ne can phh isuun, who, is necessary. carry a weaker iriena on hi back. A Wl rCH IN TlMB J Av a Ah v A b'NK FffOiW WAM MADTAICEW 00 WN HSU.

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 TAl'MUt. 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 he were a man. As a mother she get more of lfe than a father; as a spinster he 1 never a useless a a bachelor. Bhe envle a man because he I freer than she to come and go, and doesn't see that responsibilities and duties that limit on are all that make life worth while. And so It I Immaterial If ah ay her prayer In her closet on her knees, pros-' trat on tb ground with her head toward th sun; if she call In a loud vote or a whisper, her prayer ot grati tude lack th fervor of appeciatlon uni less It Include a thank ottering that lie 1 a woman, ha a woman' work to do and th ability to do It. In and r Fables of a Wise Dame J lly DOltOTUY D1I. Onm unon a time there wua a young married couple who were big fish in th octal swim, and who were ' greatly ad mired by all of the smaller sardines. Both of ther were cultured and agree able, and they lived the read I great happlnes prosperity for many year while the man hustled for th needful, and the woman did so ciety stunts that mad her a head- liner attracUon wherever t h y went.

Now, a an awful example of th ex travagance ot the modern woman, the wife had only bought what ah needed, when b needed it, but In the pursuit of economy she felt It her sacred duty t attend all tb marked down sales, and he became th canter rush on the bar gain counter, where she acquired enough intngs for which h had no earthly us to Block a ator simply because they were cheap. .

"I do not deny," she said, "that the theory of dumesllo economy la all right, but I opine that take a miracle worker to operate ltt. "Furthermore, It I clear that mad over clothes are a luxury that only mil lionaire can afford, and that w nio foolish to attempt to be economical beyond our mean." "Noble creature," replied her husband, embracing her tenderly, "you have sived me from ruin, fur while I could support your extravagance your oarijalns war bankrupting me." Moral; This fable teaches that it is only the rich who can afford to be economical. The toffee Label. It 1 not going to bo safe as it used to be to label coffee Mocha or Java un less the product really had Its origin in those placea. This the government makes evident by preferring charge against a Boston coffee company for alleged viola tion of the pure food law in this respect. We fear It ha long been a "trad custom" to call coffee Mocha or Java that never saw either region. If Just ta "name," so to speak. A a matter of fact, custom statistics show that M per cent of all th coffee used In this country come from South and Central America.
