Boya Who Were Successful.
Mr. CbarJesW. Schwab, the president
of the Billion Dollar Steel Trust,
who began life as a poor boy, told in
his talk to the St. George's trade school
in New York, the following stories of
industrious boys who afterward became
successful and prominent in the
"There were ten boys employed by a '
concern once and one night the inana- '
ger said to his subordinate : 'Tell the
boys they are to stay a little longer tonight?tell
them they are to stay until 1
6 o'clock. Don't tell them why. Ju-<t .
tell them that and watch them.' So
J 1 ?1 <
ID 18 was uoue, huu wueu u uuwa
came round there was just one boy I
who was interested in his work, and )
was not watching the clock to see what 1
time it was. That boy was the one '
the manager wanted, and be was taken
into the office, and as he continued ,
to manifest the same interest in hit
work he was promoted until at last he
got a very responsible place..
' "Then there was another boy. He ,
began carrying water, and he did it so ]
much better than any other bov, see- j
ing to it always that the men had good .
water, cool water and plenty of it, that j
he attracted attention to himself. He
was taken into the office, where he be- ,
came in time superintendent and then ,
general manager, and he is now the
man that is at the head of the Car- j
negie Company with thousands of
men under him. As a boy be did
mnr?? than the ordinary run of boys 1
did and so attracted attention, and ,
tbat was tbe secret of bis first step up- ,
"I was in a bank down town the
other day when a newsboy came in
and sold the banker a paper. After
be bad gone out tbe banker said to
nae : 'For two yearn now that boy has
been coming to me here at the time I
told him to come?2 o'clcok. He doe?
not come before 2 or after 2, but at 2
precisely. He has sold me a paper
every week day in that way when I
have been here without a break.
"He sells it for just one cent?its
price. He neither asks more nor
seems to expect more. It is a cold
commercial transaction. Now a boy
tbat will attend to business in that way
has got stuff in him. Hedoesn.t know
ityet,butlam going to put him in
my bank and you will see that he will
be heard from.' "

ODDLY, TOO, THE REMEDY ENTAILED
A Scheme by Which a Pair of Confirmed
Young Gameslera Ceaned, Yet
Did Not Ceaae, and Eventually Acquired
This is the story of two confirmed
poung gamblers who seemed beyond redemption,
but who struck a system
whereby they continued and yet ceased
?w/l Avontuflllv onnniroH woo]fh
?UU1UJ1U& auu v ?vuwuu.v **vnu..v%. ..
They were a pair of young southerners
from the same town and friends almost
from babyhood. Therefore what one did
the other was almost sure to do. They
made up their minds that they needed to
go out and see the world and be happy
and that it was not the proper thing to
live on their fathers. They came to New
York to make their own way and to seo
things and in order to see them better
jeeame newspaper reporters. Then they
saw things good and bad and indifferent
md among them were introduced to a
thing named "wheel."
Unfortunately in the first attempt one
jf them won $300 nnd the other $200,
md thereafter they devoted their young
lives and hundreds of dollars trying to
repeat the run.
When the "wheel" proved faithless,
:hey went to horse racing, which is more
langerous because it includes not mere
uck, but an element of personal vanity
ibout one's knowledge of Sunshine and
Spindrift and weights up and hard ana
joft tracks. Poker and the other diversions
were added to the list until the
spirit of gambling entered their daily
lives, and they gambled with each other
ind threw dice to see who would pay the
week's board and matched each other to
see who paid for breakfasts.
Things went on splendidly until on pay
lays It was simply a matter of an hour
to run from the office to a "joint" or a
?oolroom and to return dead broke ready
ind cheerful for another day's work,
rhey owed money, restaurant bills and
money borrowed outright, which they
fc?oped to pay some day when they mado
i big strike. Meanwhile they made little
strikes, enough to lead them on. In time
they got to the point when their faces no
onger showed whether they had lost or
won. Therefore they were "full fledged
iports." Therefore, also, hard lines were
ligging into their faces about their
mouths and eyes, and if their families
lown in the land of sunshine could have
seen them parading arm in arm up Park
row there would have been tears or rebuffs,
according to sex.
As both of the young men had the same
irst Christian names it is necessary to
rail one of them Bill and the other
Billy. Bill and Billy were in for a crisis.
Fhe summer and the greater part of autumn
had gone when it dawned on them
:hat in the name of decency, if not in the
lame of comfort, it was about time to
auy overcoats. They had spent nights
.L:.AUn?. At. oaclrmmonfo ff\P thp WflTlt Of
}UiV triill? WIX aoo.bu"i^u^ -W.
i proper covering, but on pay days it
seemed folly to invest money in clothing
when there was a fortune to be made by
the turn of a wheel. As both men were
pretty good in their line of business they
nade enough each week to buy three or
four new overcoats if they had been able
:o let the wheel alone. They realized this
>ne morning and left the office together
with their salaries in their pockets, bound
for a tailor's shop, and they returned two
lours later without a cent or an overcoat
ind with watches gone.
As th?y were game to the core they sat
lown in their seats in the office at desks
facing each other and like true Kports began
to write the Btories of their assignments
as if nothing had happened. Presently,
without stopping his writing, Bill
"Billy, you're a fool."
"Just what I was thinking of you,"
Billy returned, likewise disdaining to halt
in his work.
"Guess we're both it," Bill said as before.
"Maybe, but I know you are," said
Billy, and then for the first time both
put down their pencils.
"I'll tell you, I'll match you to see w;ho
is the biggest fool; that's about all I've
got left," said Bill.
"That's all right; I'll bet you a fiver it
[ wanted to I could save more money in
i month than you could at that," the
"I'll go you on that. It's five up that
it the end of the month I show a fatter
bank account than you do."
And that Is all that was said until at
the end of the month Bill produced a
bankbook with $80 in it and Billy one
with $120 credited to him. Therefore
Bill paid Billy the $5 and said:
"I'll go you again on that."
"All right; make it every month it you
"Suits me, my son," Baid Billy, "but,
look here, 6port is sport. I don't think I
jught to have taken that fiver. I borrowed
$50 from the governor to add to
:he account and swamp you. That leaves
570 which I teally saved against your
$80, so here is your $3 back and $3 more
which I owe."
But Bill hesitated; then he said. "Well,
Is this thing meant only for legitimate
"So I supposed."
"Then here is the $10 back. Yon see I
was behind and only had $40 in bank. I
lad everything to gain and nothing to
lose, I figured, so I drew the $40 and
played Esmeralda, even money, and
banked the $80."
"Then we will call the thing off for
this month, but hereafter it will be five
month that I show a fatter account thaa
you do, and no more funny businesa
Neither Bill nor Billy knew what he
was doing that day, or he would not
have done it. but the excitement of the
chase was on, and that was four years
ago. The last time Bill won with $4,200
to Billy's $4,170, and Billy swore he
would get the next fiver if he had to do
the Isabella act and pawn his jewels.
Some day a pair of fine girls will get
hold of Bill and Billy and will put on the
finishing touches of civilization, and
thereafter they will confine themselves to
laying odds on their wives, which is
legitimate.?New York Times.

Tips for tilrli.
'Tis better to stay a stupid thing that
hurts no one than to wax brilliant at
:he expense of a friend.
Keeping house well will not attract
social idlers, but men of sense hppe to
and housewifely talents in girls whom
they would marry.
Unless you are willing to have the
Misses Rustic visit you next winter, do
sot begin now to write letters to them,
'fishing" for invitations.
The girl who hopes to gain men's
friendly admiration by maligning her
)wn sex will fall.
Nothing is more attractive in a girl
than devotion to her parents, but it is
i, quality shown beteer by action than
by honeyed words.
The summer girl is a joyous creaature
if she is careful to do only those
things that she knows will give none

cue ngnc to can uer itui.
Kind fathers waut their girl's to have
all the fripperies their hearts desire,
but kind daughters count the cost to
the "dad" who must work the harder.
Mannerisms spoil girls?sniffling,
gigling, interrupting and making eyes
render auv girl unprepossessing.
The girl who has something to learn
from her elders is rare, but she who
will repress the constant "I know"
win show diplomacy.
II woman is the daughter of smiles,
girls should radiate laughter. She
svho laughs merrily renders herself an
auricular delight, but let none laugh
4Tis better tp be a little slow than a

n social or business circles.
Girls who consider it too much
:rouble to be neat, earful in dress, converse
and behavior will never wear betrothal
'Tis a noble daughter who "lifts"a '
few burdens from a time weary mother
and who helps a father by sacreflces
possible only to clear-headed girls.
Every place and every hour may
furnish the bush where God will burn
md speak to you if only you are prepared
to see Him. You need not leave
your daily task to go to some far altar
to pray to God and seek God. He is
close at hand.
