In his own way. Hence the essence
of good militarism?prompt and un?

makes him a poor soldier. However,
thia trait ls not entirely wanting In

Don't You RememberT
The love of reminiscence is deep
rooted in ua. We do not need to hava
length of years in order to possess lt.
All we need to have la a consciousness
of the past as past. Some year* ago
a little friend of mine, then four years
old. attained a new phrase, "Don't you
remember?" I Bay "attained," because
lt was evident that she had not only
enlarged her field of expression by a
new word, but that aha had enlarged
her field of experience by a new sensa?
tion?the sensation of reminiscence.
For the phrase, "Don't you remem?
ber?" always ushered In a story out
of her small past, some event of tha
preceding winter or summer, some
glimpse of history lu which she had
been actor witness, lt was always ut?
tered with shining eyes and a flush of
delight, which deepened if I waa abl*
to catch her reminiscence aud recog
Blze and enjoy it with her. Yet the
tblnga remembered wera very simple
?a drive, a walk, a kitten, a child wa?
tering his garden or falling down. The
pleasure came, clearly, not from the
original quality of the experience, but
from the very act of remembering- Sh*
was tasting the pure pleasure of remi?
niscence. Watching her, I fell to won?
dering what waa the precious quality
of this pleasure whose flavor she waa
beginning to taste.?Atlantic Monthly.

WHO WANTS TO OCCUPY rf?
English Hotels Seem to Have Queer
Idea as to the Popularity of
a Hearse.
Some of thc hotelkeepers "on the
other side" have peculiar ways of ad?
vertising their houses, and one of the
most singular of these methods ls the
statement In their advertisements
that the hotel ls equipped with a
hearse! Inasmuch as the American
hotelkeeper is only looking for "live
ones." it is not of record that hearses
have been used as attractions in this
country as yet. One of the English
catering Journals In speaking of this
custom, recently said: "We have on
several occasions commented upon
the uncanny mixing up of the funeral
traffic business with hotel keeping?
an unholy combination to be met with
In some northern parts of Ireland.
Apropos, here is an enticing adver?
tisement from a Sligo, prper calculat?
ed to bring quite a rush of guests anx?
ious to test the accommodation: 'Mrs.
-, proprietress of the - hotel,
begs to announce that she has added
to her establishment a glass hoarse.'"

During a discussion of the fitness
of things in general some one asked:
"If a young man takes his best girl
to the grund opera, spends $8 on a
supper after the performance, and
then takes her home in a taxicab.
r.hould he kiss her good night? An
old bachelor who was present growl?

enough for her."?Llppincott's.

DREAMER OF LITTLE VALUE
Object Lesson In Case Recorded Her*
?Bookkeeper Had Many Plans
But In No Cass Had He Mad*
an Effort to Carry Th*m
Out.
Jamison, tbe third bookkeeper, ap?
proached th? desk of hi* employer and
6tood there hesitatingly.
"I came in to find out If I couldn't
get a little raise," he began, when the
opportunity came. "I've been work?
ing here-"
The employer raised a hand.
"Jamison," he said, "I have been in*
tending to raise your salary for soma
time?and I have been holding off ia
the hope that you would deser\f a
better raise than the one I am about
to give you. Now, sit down. I Wit
to have a little talk with you."
Jamison's fare lighted at the ease
with which he had won. "Thank you,"
he said, as he seated himself. "I'm
glad to know that I've been doing
good work and-"
"You're the worst disappointment I
have had in thia office in the last ten
years," the employer cut In sharply.
"I am giving you your raise simply be?
cause you are a disappointment. Now
let me say what I started out to say.
"When you came here a year ago I
thought I had found a prize. Remem?
ber the day that I stopped by your
desk over there and asked you how
you were getting along? You an
swered me with alertness, and almost
?wept me off my feet with the flood
of Ideas that you were going to put
Into execut'on. You will remember
that I told you to go ahead and rut
your Ideas into execution?whether
they -won or not. I want a man to
come to me with ideas. I'm willing
to lose a little money experimenting
on him."
Jamison attempted to say some?
thing, but the employer went on:
"Three weeks later I wa* again by
your desk. The day I had left you I
had prophesied to myself within a
month that you would be managing
the whole office instead of doing book?
keeping. But three weeks of that time
had gone by and I had not seen any
results that would Justify me in sit?
ting up nights to think what a prent
manager you were. Not oue of those
Ideas had shown any working. You
had simply told me of them and then
forgotten them.
"That day we talked tocethcr again.
You had an entire new set of dreams
of things you were going to do. 1
waited a month, but nothing turned
up. Two months later I remember
we chatted together a tew momenta
You were tbe possessor of a new set
of plans which nobody but yourself
could carry out. Well, I waited for
you to do some currying, but nothing
occurred. And that, Jamison, is why
you are still in the position you had
when you began with this firm?-and lt
ls also why I cull you my greatest dl>
appointment. You're fast in the head
and slow on your feet. I suppose you
have another hatch of hunches cook?
ed up for me right this minute, their
only trouble being that you're the
man who must carry them out. and
you will get tired before you begin.
Isn't that true?"
"Well, I've got some Ideas all right,"
Jamison said. "Now, for instance-""
The employer stopped him
"I've got a better idea than any of
yours," he said. "And that is for you
to go and carry out some of your
plans first; then tell me about them
afterward."
"Yes, slr," said Jamison, meekly
Joy in Effort.
In ancient Greece the victors at the
contests of various sorts won (treal
honor. These contests were called
games, but the men who won in them
did not win through play, but only by
strenuous preparation, through real
and often prolonged work. This prep?
aration required patience and persist?
ence that there might be a constant
advance In strength and skill.
Testimonies to the effort thnt the
liveliest exercise of strength and skill
gives the greatest of known joy are
very numerous. In the Century maca
zine there is a sonnet written to ac
company a bas-relief by A. Tait Mc?
Kenzie, with the title "The Joy of Ef
fort." The picture is of three hurdlers
clearing the bar. The poem tells ol
their eagerness, their impetuosity
their joy In fleetness The last two
lines, a couplet, read. "For men 'tis
not enough to be alive; the noblest
Joy of being ia to strive."
Work for the Secretary.
The secretaries of great men usn.il
!.- turn out to be somebody In the end
and the quality they must have the
most of is tact. The big men and
women themselves have no time tc
smooth things over?they are busy
ruffling things up. And so it ls the
secretary who must assume th*
suave, placating manner; lt la the sec?
retary who must learn how to tie
up all the loose ends that the big man
leaves flying after a business deal; ll
is the secretary who must devote her
self to the people that the big man
thinks worth cultivating
Having made a little foothold '- ?
