uccess for Relidlon
By RAV. MADISON C. PETERS
AM an admirer of success. But I fld myself at variance
with some in the conception of success itself. One of the worst
features of our age is the worship of' success by itielf and apart
from the means by which it has been attained. To be success
ful is enough, no matter what has gone before. A man is meas
ured according to his success in things material. Some of you
feel this bitterly, and you have reason to feel it, for it is a
There is a success that is not worth the having and there
is a failure that is more to be desired than success.
4 We find that the word "success" is used only once in the Bible:
"Be strong and of good courage; this book of the law shall not depart
of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that
u mayst observe to do all that is written therein: for then shalt thou
e good success."
These conditions laid down fsor Joshua are binding still; an inflexible
rpose at all hazards to obey thelwill of God and to do the right regard
as of consequences has been the real secret to the best success in life.
iness itself gives no chance for getting religion, but abundant opportu
ty to exercise it. A business man was accosted by a newsboy, "Don't
u want to gimme a dime and set me up* in business?". He related how
streak of bad luck had left him strapped, and how many papers he could
y for a dime and what his profits would be. The man gave him a quar
r. The boy said: "Shake for luck." Now I call that bringing religion
'You will need religion not only for others but for yourself. If you
an employee it will enable you to maintain good cheer under discour
ement and work towards your ideal in spite of a headache. If you are
employer you will give a fair day's wage for a fair day's work. It is
ore important that good wages should be paid than that an office prayer
eeting should be established. The business into which you cannot carry
; qour religion you would better get out of.
I have very little faith in the religious employer who lives in a palace,
hile those who work for him live in shanties. I know men whose tables
0, end and groan with luxuries, while their workmen have to be content
th ten-cent meals. The hard-headed man of business need not be hard
earted. Un-Christian competition absolves none from the duty of Christ
Other things being equal, the man who enters
business life thoroughly imbued with the purpose ever
to act under his eye and gladdened with the joys and
hopes which religion inspires, has immense advantages,
even as regards his worldly prospects, over the man
who throws conscience to the winds.

France* all the world in thrift.
My wife and I and our little five-year-old
girl were to stay almost a year in Europe,
so at Nice I hired a young French woman
Leads who was willing to act both as nurse and
maid. Hier English was excellent, as she'
the orld had spent some years in the United states,
' in hriftand she spoke Italian as wvell as her native
tongue. Her ability along practical lines,
suchl as embroidery and needlework, was
By H. C. BEAR, equal to her linguistic cleverness, and long
Wllmindton, N. C. before we parted with her she had that
little North Carolina tot talking French
with the best Parisian accent.'
' But it was her knack of saving money that opened my eyes and
.brought a realization of the tremendous deficien~cy of the wage-earning
class of my owvn country.
The pay of this young woman, as fixed by herself, was 80 francs a
mnonth, or $16 in our money.
Of course all her traveling expenses were paid and from time to time
she was given small sums in recognition of her faithfulness and skill.
Well, at the end of ten months, when the time came for us to return
home and settlement was made with the nurse, howv much money do you.
suppose I paid her? Just 800 francs.
Not a dollar of her pay had she drawvn in all that time, and so I just
added 200 more francs to express my appreciation of a young woman who
cotild be that provident.
The counterpart of that French girl hardly exists in the United
S tates, but if we had plenty of her kind the nation would be in far more

Sto raise any' question as to the validity of the indictment and it is the
duty of his counsel to prevent his being tried on an invalid indictment,
and from taking up the time of the court with a sham case. If a crime
has been committed and the indictment upon that crime states no crime
it is the fault of the state's attorney, the rep~resentative of the people, as
he has clear knowledge of what the indictment must contain. Where a
crime has not been alleged the quashing of the indictment is but the vin
dication of that fundamental principle of a republic that no person shall'
be deprived of life, liberty o'r property without due process of law. To
convict a man for an act which by the record of the court does not consli
tute a crime would be the act of despotism.
Sometimes it may seem that delay is given by such procedure, but
the accused has the right to be heard on any objections or defenses he
may have. Is it not better to delay a matter a little while to find the truth
than to go'swiftly ahead on the wings of falsehoanod

At present nobody walks. The first
morning I was here I made a great
mistake. I went out for a stroll round
to get an idea of the town. Frankly
I thought it was a detestable place.
"There is about enough here," I said,
"to make a decent-sized village, and
they havo spread It over an area big
enough for the site of a city." It was
very hot.' It was also windy. Dust lay
thick all over except in the very mid
dle of the road. I saw no white peo
ple about. I came back to the hotel
sticky and tired and In a bad temper.
But after a cool drink In a long chair
on the balcony looking over the river
and over the great stretch of desert
bounded by fascinating far-off hills, I
reflected and began to understand. In
this dry atmosphere thirst becomes a
habit, and it is necessary to drink often
of limo juice or lemonade. As I cooled
off I became more reasonable. I no

Weights and Measures.
London has what Now York has
not, namely, cheap and easy access to
authoritative standards of weights and
measures. At the Royal observatory
of Greenwich these . standards are
fixed on the outside walls, so that any
shopkeeper or householder or other
doubting Thomas can go at any time
and get information and an easy con
science without waiting for inspectors
or red tape unrollers. The various
lengths are decided at Greenwvich by
p~assing the measure to be testedl be
tween raised points in metal plates.
There is a pound balance there by
which any weight may he0 verified. In
Trafalgar square ther-e are standards
of 100 feet and one chain (00 feet) on
brass plates, with accurate subdi
visions. These brass plates are set in

of the United tates With
Those of Europe.
Now -York.-Mr. W. M. Ackworth,

riversity in the United States, and
ho from time to time inspects Amer
an railways in the interests of K'ng

) England after a two-months' in
pection of the railways of the Unit
d States. Just before sailing for
Agland, Mr. Ackworth, in comment
ig on the present status of railways
X the United States, said, in' part:
"I have been sounewhat surprised
a see the space that has been given
a your newspapers to the criticisms
,f the efficiency of your railways. It
as been my opinion that in actual
econotny of operation the railways of
he -United States are first in the
vorld. In the number of tons per
-ar, cars per train; in the fullest
itilization of locomotives; in the ob
aining of the greatest measure of
result for each unit of expenditure,
Lhey are nbt equalled by the railways
of any other nation. When the Greek
commanders after the battle of Sa.
lamnis voted who should receive the
prize for valor each put his own
name first, but all but the name of
'!henistocles second. And Themnisto
cles received the prize. So, too,
though German, French and English
railway men would, I dare say, all
-ut their own railways first in eifl
ciency, they would all, I am sure, put
yours second, and on the voting of
the experts your railways would
:one out first.
"But, further, your nation, as a
whole, is not in other matters pro
eminently efficient. No one would
nay that your farmers were more ef
t1cient than those of France and EIng
land, or that your government is more
cfflcient than the government of Prus
sia. Your railways have reached a
higher standard in international com
parison than your fathers or your
government, and under greater dif
ficulties, for in England and on the
continent employment with a railvay
company is a prize and a man hopes
to remain in the service of tho same
company throughout his life. lie Is,
therefore, obviously mere amonable
to discipline than the shifting and of
