Publicity, Truth and Success while Br ELBERT HTJBBARD Publicity eliminate pretense. The faker gannot work In a club. Falsehood makes for friction truth and love are lubrioanta. Where many people Sire involved nothing1 (Toe but truth. The sunlight of publicity destroys the ptomaines o f fraud. The faker withers before the fact. As the planets are field In space through the opposition o f forces, so are men held in the straight and narrow way of truth through public opinion. The ad cluba of America are great and important fac tors in the prooesa of making men unions lata and roonlat. The ad-crafters atand for ethics In the highest sense, and also they atand for effectiveness and effi ciency. The ad dubs form, in themielves, a university.

This Is not only a valuable astrin gent, but has a beneficial tonic effect also. Advertiseinei week for midday lunch of an ad club will. In the course. of a year, evolve every member from a villager into a cosmo polite. No mea can get into an ad club and wrap ignorance about him, and tuck In his prejudices, feeling safe and secure. Foolishness is given the amlle audible. Selfishness flies out through the win dow. An advertising club is a pooling proposi tion. Everybody puts In alt he knows and lakes out all he can carry .away. And what he takes away is In reality what he puts In. We keep things by giving them away. Thus ws get a practical monism, or a soientlfio pragmatism. 'And progmetism Is simply the science of a sensible selfishness or. If you pre fer, call It enlightened self-Interest. Pragmatism is the law of self-preservation illumined by love of Wad.' Righteousness Is a form of common S' nee. Business is the science of human ser vice, i . . ' Commerce is eminently a living calling; and the word commercial should never be used as an epithet, save by the man with a guinea-hen mind. The creed of an ad club man runs somewhut as follows: I believe in myself. I believe in tl e goods I sell. I believe In the firm for whom I work. I believe In my colleagues and helpers. I believe In the efficacy of printer's Ink. I believe in producers, creators, manu facturers, distributers, snd In all Indus- trial workers who have a Job and hold It ! down. I telleve that truth ia an asset. I believe in good cheer and In good health, and I recognise the fact that the first requisite In success Is not to achieve the dollar but to confsr a benefit and the reward will come automatically and aa a matter of oourae. I believe that when I make a sals I must make a friend. I believe la the bands that work. In the brains that think and in the hearts that love. I believe in sunshine, base ball, fresh Ir, spinach, apple sauce, bombaxlne, but termilk, babies, laughter, motor cars, adding machines, typewriters, typewritiata alwaya remembering that the greatest word In the English language ia "sufficiency" By BEATRICE FAIRFAX. "I am a young man who has not had much dealing with women and never cared for the company of a girl until recently,' when I met a young lady for whom I have a great liking. I meet her when I am in the company of another young man. "No aooner do we meet than X seem to lose all power of apeech. I cannot aay what I want to convey. She seems to understand me and acts pleasant and encouraging. I have never asked her to accompany me to any places of amuse ments, for fear that I might not treat her properly. Furthermore, I would not know where to take her. as I've never gone out with girls." writes Henri O . I suppose it would do no good to tell you, Henri, that In these days of bold ycung men whj think they honor a girl by speaking to her, your modesty and shyness have a real charm of their own. What wot want to know la how to campaign for the affections of the girl you admire. Tou don't want ' to be tongue-tied In her presence lest she think you a bore. Tou are unwilling to risk having her girlish sympathy come out to your shyness for fear she will pity and despise you, when all your mescu. line Instinct is for conquering and win ning admiration. . 6uppose you ask her to go with you to a bait game. Host men understand base ball and not very many women do. In explaining the points of the game you can act as her Instructor and guide and thereby you will gain confidence In yourself. Tou may ask her to the theatre, to go to some moving picture or to taks a trip to Coney Island or any amusement park )ou like. If yju go where you have a chance for physical exertion as rowing ot canoeing you will some definite re sponsibility to take your mind off your self and your own shyness. The bashful young man who Is quite at a loaa when he la paying a formal call In a girl's home will find himself per fectly at ease when buay at something more than the conscious game of aociety. Occupy yourself at some familiar or congenial purault, and ask the girl you like to share it with her. Don't struggle to make conversation dc something If it ia only taking a walk or going to the corner for a aoda or tak ing a street car ride. Discuss what you see going around you aa you would with a favorite boy companion or a dear rela tive. Stop thinking of yourself and de vote yourself to giving pleasure to the friend you are trying to win. Friendships consists of almost equal parta of liking the same thing and liking each cither. Find a congenial pastime that pleases you both and out of your common Interest a real friendship will flower. All rnen who ere shy have a certain modesty that the brasen lady-killer laoka And so, don't grieve over your Inexperi ence. Juat be your natural boyish self and rest assured that If the girl you like Is fine and wholesome your unsettles de votion will win her.

Net Tee Yoaag. Dear Miss FairFax: I am a girl II years of age and disDlv in love with a young man three years my senior. Now this young man has asked me to become his wife. What I wanted to know Is, sm 1 too young to marry? I am almost sure I would make a good wife and am sure he would make a very good husband. Please advise me what to do. M. A. P.

Hhe might love you as a son, but never as a husband. Age doee meke a w.ighty difference when it comes te marital happiness. - til . By DOROTHY BIX. Once upon a time there was a youth who, perceiving that he was in the also-ran-class., and was never likely to win out In the race of life, determined te make an end of himself. Thereupon he sought the big drink, but before he took the fatal plunge, he sat down upon the bank and wept a few. While he was thus bemoaning his fats, an old man, observ ing his grief, ap proached and ad dressed him. "Why these goba of gloom?" the aged party Inquired. "A I a a." replied the youth, "I am nothing but a falsa alarm, and aa I do not dealre to be merely a piker all my daya, I have resolved upon uolng the suicide etunt, for of what use Is It to possess a dress suit If you have nowhere to wear it, or to have brains In your heels if the only place where you can maxlie Is in a cheap dance palace?" "Ha," cried the old man, "your case la one ot aspiring youth and blasted ambition combined with symptoms of lack ot opportunity." "Tou have got me Steve," replied the youth, with a fresh burst of woe. "I apprehend," said the a a c I e a t mariner, "that you yearn te be a lady's pet end heve the fair onee sighing for your favor." "Mock me not," returned the youth, "but such is the desire of my heart." "Also." continued the gray beard, "that yeu would not look with disfavor upon assy money." "Try me," exclaimed the youth, "likewise," suggested the venerable philanthropist, "that you would not seri ously object to occupying the center of the stsse, and having the spotlight turned en you." "In pity," pleaded the youth, "quit pulling that earthly paredtee atuft en me." "All may be yours," quotn tha eld man, "If you will only follow my counsel Arise, go forth and purchase youreell glad raiment, and beat it te the nearest summer resort. There shall fair women etruggle for your favor, and claw cats other'a eyes out for the privilege ei tangoing with you. and also shall they teed yeu with rich foods and ply yot with cosily drinks, and ride you about in tutomoblles. Likewise you may marry the daughter et a pork king, for a thing Is of value in proportion te its rarity, and a man at a summer reeort la a pearl In a barrel ef clams." Thereupon the youth did as the ell man bade him, and the result was even as tha wlae one had prophesied. Moral: This fable teaches that th summer Is the young man's opportunity. and sagacious is be who emoreree it. Coat-Tralltaar la V later. We are hearing much about coat-trailing In Ulster, and one wonders If the practice In Its literal sense ever really existed. Tradition connects the origin of the phrsse with the famous Donnybreok fair, licensed by King John, and growing steadily more disorderly until Its aboli tion In ISM.
