SHE STUCK TO IT. There's an
old Latin proverb which runs, in
effect: "There is nothing which can
not be conquered by perseverance."
We have an account of a French
woman who wrote more than 200 un
productive letters inquiring as to the
safety of her husband at the front
Recently she reached him with one,
and learned that he was safe and un
harmed, but consumed with anxiety
about her, she having been compelled
to desert her home by the advance
of the enemy.
Just ponder over it a moment.
Would YOU write 200 letters to ac
complish a purpose, no matter how
fixed, or would you give up after the
fourth or the fortieth or the one hun
dredth vain attempt?
Perseverance is a quality woefully
lacking in our restless American
temperament, yet one of .the greatest
of all qualities. It must be attained
while young to reach its highest effi
ciency in maturity. It becomes a
sixth sense almost, this habit of
sticking doggedly to a purpose until
success is achieved.
It might well be taught as a spe
cial course in the schools.
PROSECUTION IS THROUGH.
Counsel for the prosecution of Bran
deis have filed their brief with the
senate sub-committee. They claim
that they have proved that Brandeis,
during hir ions career as a lawyer,
Violated canons of professional
Made false and misleading state
ments, Was guilty of duplicity,
Represented interests opposed to
And had been guilty of sharp prac
tices. Maybe Brandeis has been guilty of
and should be punished for all this,
but if he is punished it will be mighty
good grounds for the whole U. S. su
preme bench to quake in its boots.
Before they go to stringing up law
yers for such things as un-ethics,
misleading statements, duplicity and
sharp practices, our forestration
service had better get real busy, for,
at present, there aren't enough trees
to go 'round.
However, counsel aforesaid pre
sents the adscititious charge that
Brandeis isn't liked by eight former
presidents of the American Bar ass'n,
headed by Bill Taft, upon whose per
sonalitv the American nation recent
ly passed. Maybe this dislike is
grounds for the hanging of Brandeis,
but it will make pretty bad precedent.
