clerkship 2nd after finishing his school education the sooner he makes choice of his busi ness for life and sets himself at work to learn and become successfully established the Better No young man can afford to make a mistake in his choice of occupation the first choice should be the true one For this I reason we would say to a young man in regard to routine clerkship byI no means accept a place of that kind noteven if the salary is large it may seem large at first but there can be no compensation to a youug man for the loss of time Indeed we are of the opinion that a young man at the start had better work for nothing or even pay for the privilege of going into an establishment where he can learn a good business than toI take an ordinary clerkship at any price J LOUISVILLE WOOD

overabundance last year- In the winter his house was burned to the ground To his neighbors solicitations he calmly responded The house never suited us anyway so it is all for the best Other

meant the wedding- of a saint and an angel there would be no problems to solve no perfections to attain no progross to make This may be why there are no marriages in heaven On earth it is different Husband and wife are strongly human No matter how lovingly united or how sweet their accord they never have the same temperaments tendencies or tastes Their needs are different their manner of looking atthings is not identical and in varying ways their individualities asserts them r selves At any critical moment if both express at the same time aI desire to defer to the others taste the result is foreordained hap piness This makes matrimony not merely union but unison and unity The spirit of compromise does not mean a continuous perform ance in the way of self surrender anaself sacrifice it does not mean ceasing to be a Voice and becoming an echo it does not im ply or justify the loss of individu ality It means simply the instinctive recognition of the bes way out of a difficulty the quickest tacking to avoid a collision the kindly view of tolerance in the presence of weakness and errors of another the courage to meet an explanation half way the gen erossity to be first to apologize for a discard the largeness of mind not fear a sacri fice of dignity in surrendering in in the interests of the highest harmony of the two rather than the personal vanity Delineator e THE

power Some times the amount of water is insufficient and then two im psedhaThe plant makes a specialty of gingham goods and pperates its own dye house The population of this place is over twelve hun

NOVEMBER 6I907IJ CHILD LABOR The efforts being madebY the Charities and Commons to reduce-r child labor throughout the coun try are worthy of the support of every newspaper and every citizen who has the welfare of future generations at heart The development of Indus tries may force expedients of 4 various kinds but the dollars made today through the em= ptoyment of children in factories and mines will be offset by ex penditures in the future of large as to make child labor in the end wholly unprofitable Wealth created by undeveloped boys and girls will carry with it a curse But in efforts to eradicate child labor consideration must begiven to another side of the problem Conditions surrounding working people have first to be amelior ated The necessity of putting the childto work as soon as he is able to earn a few hollars mutt be obviated The system that compels every member of the family to contribute to its sup port must be destroyed This means a radical revolution of present conditions arid how this is to be brought about is one of greatest problems of the day e It stands to reason that through laws and their enforcement little can be accomplished of real value f The child may be taken from the factory and the mill and forced to attend school but the increased t burden on the head of the family leaves it in a situation otherwise generally worse rather than bet ter Yet this shout not be so andwould not be were efforts directed to the root of the wholee matter which lies indisputably t in present industrial conditions S Of course the people must be awakened to the true situation and through them a public senti ment created sufficiently strong compel all clases of citizens to recognize the mischief that isr baing done When this is accomplished there will be laws not simply for taking children from the mills and placing them in school but for removing the causes that have compelled their employment What the people demanded they will ultimately get if they earnestly try to obtain it and the campaign of education now being carried on ought before long to produce some tangible results in the treatment of the real causeThe Grit 4s d THE ART OF HAPPINESS Y
