be for Dicky in an encounter with
so dangerous and desperate a man

I was far from sure that Lillian

Although my friend characteristi

Smith and the man who had so
frightened Katie were but cogs in
a machine so infernal, so deadly, so
menacing as to tax the utmost pov

the destruction of it. And from
long association with her I had
learned that of all things she feared
most the premature seizure or even

Wieky replied. ,

"Never thought of that, as long as
the indicator registered as much as
that," he answered.
The stocky man did not snort
aloud, but his face expressed the ut
most contempt for amateur motorists
in general as he turned a lever on

trials set the motor to purring.

How can a little girl of 10, who is
very proud of the prettiness, etc..
Of her baby brother of 2, be helped
to keep this pride in him. without
tt the same time making him sclt
conscious and vain?
There isn't much danger of chil
dren spoiling a child of 2. If they
do, they will quickly discover the
fact and as speedily amend the
blunder by that chastening process
children employ instinctively when
grownups let them. Let little bro
ther take his train or his soldiers
and play naturally in the room
where the big girls play dolls. He
will surely lose his self-conscious-less.
It would be a pity to tarnish
the sister's pride in the child by any
suggestion of "spoiling."

In quitting, not in failing, 'tis, that
black dishonor lies. And failure
often proves to be a blessing in dis
guise. To quit, because you chance
to fail, is to weakness to, confess.
And he whom1 . failure overcomes
could ill endure success. The acid
only cleans the gold and burns the
dross away. And failure only goads
the strong to rise and face the fray.
As coral rises on itself above the
sea at last,- so man's success is
builded on the failures of the past.
