the complement of the other, but for action, for being in the very position for
which his great ability and his unquestioned patriotism fitted him, Washing
Ton must ever stand first. and Franklin on a pedestal a little below that of
his great comlpleer.
Franklin as a great American. a great mechanic and philosopher. a great
stateisman. and a great diplomatist. and today we iumst look upon him as a
great Bostonian. Hoston's first debt to Franklin was to hinm as a printer and
mechanic. Franklin was over proud of this distinetioli. Pride in his trade
lasted through his life. . . . The next debt to him was as a scientist. Truly
the Archimedes of modern times, he was at inventor. and more than invenltor:
lie was a philosopher in the highest reahs of science.
He was a hilosopher. and as -a ihilosopher could no, lie a dogmatic the
oogian. but. our debt to him j.: great L deed for his Christian spirit, for his ph il
osophic reception of all the ills of life, and for the deeds he sent ringing down
the ages. No young man or woman can read the life of Franklin without in
spiration. without being influInced to a better. cleaner life, and this is the

Some Men Don't Succeed
tPwwq* 'ift - n By innette Bradshaw.
NE of the brigihtest writers unp.m the homile very V ulY de
elkires that "one reason why solie mien dto nOt ge t nbut
ter in this world is because they have not th prolper sitlu
lain in their homes.
"Their homes lack those little toliclies of refinement
which bring the best out of them.
-Neatness and taste are possille in the poorest homes.
ILet a woman make the atmosphere is dainty as her means
allow, and she will raise her husband to the same standard.
"And as she elevates him the effect is felt upon herself, her children, her
home and her future. Some men r-espondl more slowliy to the touch of a wont
an's hand displayed in their homes and upon their sur-rounidinlgs.
"The task may senm hopeless to the wife at tinbs. Bttt sooner oi- later
the effect will show itself. Ther-e is something in every mian which responds
to a higher- and gentler- influence.
"Let his home be rough, and he will be rough.
"But infuse into that home a softening touch. he it (ever so simple, and
the man feels it, even1 thiottgh lie may not 'irectly notice it,
"He imbibes t unconisdioutsly, and its effect is sure upOn hinm."
MIen like being told they are loved, eveni as mtuch as they dleilit in telling
their fiancees of their affection for themi. Yet a girl very often overlooks t his,
seeming to think that men do not appreciate little attentions but prefer to
undertake the whole of the love-making themselves,
This may be so in individtual cases, btit the man who does not enjoy being
told that he is dear to the heart of his chat-mer is qttite an exceptional person.
M~en are 'susceptible to flattery, bttt perihap~s would weary of coniiitual
praise far sooner than a woman. And the girl adores huraise. even fr-oim the
lips of a dlimintutive brother: wheireas a mian eould he( at a loss what to nmake
of a flatterer other- ihan his fiancee.
.Iust to htumor hiim a girl miight at tempt the reciprocaltin of his words or
adoi-ation. andt if lle doesi't exhibit signs of htuge 'a' iliht. r est assuredi there
is somethinz Aissl5 withI him. -Annelt- Bradhaw

we wish most, and ever the road turns. And ever what can carry a man clos

the gladness of it, is a horse. So if a man's heart be heavy, let him ride a
horse in the springtime. andl~ the strength and clean joyfulness of the beast
shall enter him, and his tirouble fall fronm him. And this is ti-te of the sum
