Theodore N. Vail
A New York banker recently re?
quested his ion, wbo held a clerkship
In his bank, to do *ome work. The ion
replied. "I have no time, give lt to
some other man." The father bad
heard the son say "I have no time" so

lng them, that he resolved to aee Jual
how much time hi* son did have. H*
had made the requeat on a Saturday
morning, when the bank cloaed at
noon, and. after lunch, the banker
kept his eye on his son to learn how
he spent that afternoon. Along about
3 o'clock the son came down stairs
dreeeed for a stroll, crossed the fields
to the river bank, sat down beneath a
tree, lighted his pipe, read the aport
lng section of a newspaper, and after
a time went to sleep. His father
awakened him at 6 o'clock, telling him
that the three hours that he had weat
ed In sleep would have been sufficient
for the work that he aaked him to do
The banker told his son that he would
have to better employ his time If be
ever expected to succeed him at thc
? head of the bank.

young nien Invariably hold aubordi
'? nate position* when they could, by a
little effort, win promotion. The pros
I peet ls that they will hold subordinate
positions all their lives unless tho
better employ their time.
The fact of the matter ls, there li
no young man so busily engaged lr
anything that he utilizes all his tlm<
nt his work; there ls not one who can
not find time for extra work If h<
a hut undertake to do so. It ls tho bu^i

"? one to win success. Theodore N Val
?* recently snid. In the course of advlc
to men in the general office of th
Hell Telephone company: "This bus
