VEAL AND BEEF SHORTAGE.
To removo veal from tho hotel
menus was advocated at a recent con
vention of weatorn hotel men In Kan
sau City as ono remedy for tho pres
ent beef shortage in tho United StatoB.
A beef steer 1b but a grownup calf, of
courso. Tho latter, dressed and ready
for tho market, weighs perhaps 80
pounds. 'Permit It to grow to matur
ity, thus becoming beef, and It weighs
700 pounds or mqi;o when dressed. It
Is putting tho enso roughly nnd per
haps Inaccurately, but thero Is sub
litantlal truth In tho statement that
tho slaughter of ovory calf not only
shortens tho vlslblo supply of cattlo
by one, but Is a not loss of morfi than
0C0 pounds of food. Tho loss would
bo tho moro readily ondurcd, perhaps,
were veal a really wholesomo artlclo
of diet It 1b tender and tasteful, to
bo sure, and much sought after by
many, but Indigestible and of little
food value. Thero Is hardly a ques
tion that tho health of tho people
would bo distinctly bettor wero this
meat absolutely banlshod from tho na
tional dietary. Hut tho main con
sideration supporting bucIi a stop la
that a cessation of tho domand for
veal might definitely stlmulato tho
growing of cattlo In overy agricultural
community. Tho farraor, encouraged
to ralso his calves, would provldo him
self with facllitlos to do so, Just as

The general belief Jhat Friday Is a
day of HI luck had Its origin tn tho 1Ib
jry of Christ, tho crucifixion taking
jiJ'co on that day. Friday, however,
7 many has boon hold to bo a lucky
day, as In Scotland it Is a favorlto
ilay for wcddlngB. Friday has boon
a peculiarly lucky day in tho his-,
tory of America. It was on Friday,
August 3, 1492, that Columbus sot tall,
on his voyago of discovery, and Fri
day, Octohor 12, that ho first sighted
land; Friday, Novombor 22, 1403, that
ho reached Hlspanola on his second

reached tho continent of Amorlca.

TEXT-Tcano to do ovll; loam to do
work is tho build
ing of character.
Our world Is a
college, events aro
ness Ib tho gradu
ating point, and
charactor Is tho
diploma which Is
given to man.
Character is moro
than learning nnd
Character Is nor
so much a thing
of intellect an of
disposition, therefore should bo cloth
ed, with goodness.
Tho only abiding thing, tho only
thing that you may take with you Into
tho futuro llfo, Is character. It Is u
mark of wisdom to look into and pre
pare for tho future. Herein Hob tho
difference botween a child and n man,
tho savage and tho civilized, tho rich
and tho poor tho ability to look Into
and plan for the future. Tho power
of tho artlBt lies in his ability to see
seo finished picture Character is tho
best thing you can lcavo behind you,
A good character is tho best tomb
stone. Wo aro remembered by what wo
havo dono. Tho ahsonco of character
Is hopeless, weaknesfl and wickedness.
What Is Character?
Intellectual culture is not necessari
ly character. It Ib often argued that
Intellect and moral development go to
gothor. History, however, disproves
bucIi a Btatomont. If that wero truo
tho peasant, If ifloiiB, oven though ho
hnd no education, would bo a Shakes
pearo or a Milton; then goodness must
accompany scholarship and so overy
scholar would bo a moral man, which
Is not tho cnBo. Intellectual culturo
may bo and often Ib accompanied by
character, but it Ib not identical with
it. Did Intellect savo Solomon from
vice, Bacon from bribery, or Byron
from Immorality? Colorldgo says:
"All tho moro products of tho under
standing tend to death."
Wealth Is not character, although it
is often substituted for It. People
without charactor, but with money,
often nro admitted into respectable
society. Wcnlth In tho hands of weak'
mon is a fearful thing. It la not truo
that monoymaklng has tho tendency
to banish great thoughts and flno feel
ings? Why Is so much Immorality con
nected with wealth?
Reputation In not character. Char
actor Is what a man Ib, reputation Is
what men think him to bo; and ofton
thoso twoMhlngs nro reversed by tho
revelation of tho nowspapers. Char
acter la what n man Is beforo God;
'refutation is what ho is beforo men;
reputation is for time, charactor Is
for eternity. Character is what n
man is when nobody Is looking. A
man's character can no moro be
strengthened by reputation than a
fence by whitewash.
What, then, Is character? The
word slgnlfloB something scored or en
graved, and carrlcB with It un abiding
significance; bo wo may speak of char
acter aB that which sots forth certain
abiding results which hns boon scored
or engraved In thu soul of mnn by the
experiences of llfo. Charactor is tho
