The Value . .

There'are few characteristics more

Condition of life does it inspire confi
dence. It is the chief motivo power.'
of all systems without which no en
trpriia can be satisfactorily trans
acted, and the success of individual
as well as corporations is primarily
oasea upon punctuality, which in
volves both honor and conscience.
To be negligent of jobligations-,aiid
engagement?, either socially or from
a business standpoint, 'it doubly cul
pable,, insomuch as in doing so we
take advantage of the trust placed in
us and also waste the time of others,
the value of which we have no means
of. estimating or right to judge. - Only
a few instances of carelessness re
necessary to materially injWe one's'
standing, and, although jio particular
misfortune may result, still there (s
no surer way or undermining faith
and trust, without which no one can
hold a responsible position.
To a limited few, punctuality is a
matter of temperament, but the ma
jority of people are not naturally thus
conscientious;, however, it may be ac
quired by. all,' and is well worth con
sideration, for it not only makes life
better worth living, but from, every
practical point of view is a fine asset
for all. t :
The prompt man wilt always prove
his own best' advertisement; he. will
be wejeome in all circles; will receive
mbre courteous favors and generaf re
spect; will have more real friends and
will invariably do more business and
receive more patronage from the pub
lic than his more , conspicuously
wealthy but negligent brother who
overestimates . his- influence ' and
ability. , ,;i
Promptness js a component part of
so mny things that it is perhaps
wiser t particularize.' For instance,
promptness distinguishes children at
school. Promptness is essentiaj in the
management, "of a household; if the
mistress is indolent and careless the
servants are overkeen to take advan
tage of every opportunity the chil
dren grow lax and indifferent,, and
even the husband becomes demoral
ized. " ,
Promptness in the business man is
but the outward expression and evi
dence of an inward consciousness of
his appreciation ot life's responsibili
ties, and by it he becomes a marked
man, whereas through its absence he
may become proportionately insignii)'
One may go even farther, and say
that a man cannot be either a gen
tleman or a Christian if h does not
feel a moral obligation of promptness
and fairness toward his fellow man;
he may have the outward semblance
of a gentleman, but fundamentally he
is lacking,, and a sort of moral thief,
who encroaches and imposes uppn the
time of others, and also from matter-of-fact,
practical, every-day stand
points, the important business man
who has the- advantage of official
knowledge and all well-founded theo
ries 'and resources, could -never have
attained his toveted position' had he
not with each succeeding past ex
perience been a prompt eye-witness
of every phase of his particular line
of work. ' x

greatness eclipsed, by persistent and

What Would You Be?
It is t human tendency to be very
critical of every one and everything
except one's self. It is fairly natural
to set a mark and a goal and a series
of ideals by which to measure otner
people. But to have personal ideals
ought to be as general and instinctive
and is not. . '
However, more and more the world
is getting a social and a personal con
science. More and more we hold our
selves to ideals; and more and more
we live by big, fine.i beautiful creeds.
One of the sweetest and simplest
personal creeds I know is embodied
in the little verse I have given yoi to
day. It expresses many of the things
one ought to be.
One must cultivate truth In one's
nature and honestly and loyalty to
those who trust and to one's self,
All of us owe it to ourselves to be
big and fine and splendid and owe it,
too, to those who could be hurt by our
failing to be our best selves.
One does not live' to one's self
alonef Failure and defeat hurt each of
us as an individual but they hurt also
those who 'care tor us. 14
Truth, purity, strength and bravery
are a wonderful armor with which to i
