is a railroad which
takes you from any
where to better meth
ods. You can read systematically oven
wnen you road tho dally uowspaper
if you watch for a good idoa to put to
work In your regular employment.
Thero Is more ple"sure In reading
to a purpose than in reading to kill
timo or to feed our morbid curiosity.
While systematic reading may not
mako us governor of our state, it will
help us to llvo bettor and have some
thing at tho samo time. Wo nil need
more common-sense for common sub
jects wo know wo do.
A man started a jolly good timo club,
which mot for n banquet every few
weeks, and whon I suggested that
they havo up somo useful subject to
swing around nnd havo n good timo
alEo, ho replied that ho was so tired
evenings that ho could not think and
must havo a laugh.
As I did not invest flvo years' timo
on a medical courso of study for
nothing, I made up my mind to watch
j this man nnd his club. In n littlo
I whlio tho man was so sick tho lnstir-
I anco companies told him thoy could
not pass him for a year, if evor again,
I and the club wont to pieces.
Thero is a great difTcrenco between
' tho enthusiasm of earnestness nnd
j tho laughter of fun. Enthusiasm for
usefulness loads Xo resit , anil .health.
ki.,MiiuRiirti'alirne leads to sick
ness and frequently moral poisoning.
And about the reading of books nnd
newspapers or tho attending of amuse
ments or entertninmeiiLs go at it to
know moro and nail down tho ideas
, in a noto book, then enjoy It all you
: can, but let the permanent benefit
prccedo the temporary pleasuro part.
I Evory person In this woild needs
to gain in sKlll on something nnd
flvo minutes n day reading nnd think
ing to a purpose or reading, think
ing, Booing and hearing to know moro
about tho mnnngoment of self will
give rest, wisdom and will powtr.
As individuals become interested
in and loam how to bettor gathor tho
personally useful thoughts hero nnd
thero, and nlso learn how to apply
: them in tho light way at tho right
timo, I try to lecord their experiences
and pasB them along to you. Suppose j
you and I rend a good idea to day.
' You remember it and uso it, whlio I I
forget it. In a year wo meet, and 5 on
toll mo how useful it has boon to you,
then I recall my having read it and
your certirIng to Its vnluo gets mo to
using it and my story of It all may get (
others to using it who might not
tako any practical interest In it ns n
Ton years ngo n man said to mo I
that he should think thot I would get
so many duplicated ideas and stories
from my research invitations. I told
him that was just what I wanted. If
twenty people told mo that a certain
method had proven useful it was bet
tor than if ninctoon told mo. In somo
cases I prefer to havo a person cer
tify to somo report on illo to having
thorn report to mo on Bomo new sub
ject. If somo things aro truo, It Is '
tremendously important to havo It
known ns a fact and told to overy
boy and girl tho moment thoy reach
tho ago of understanding.
Old Shoe Sentiment.
Havo you had a pair of old shoes
which proved so comfortable that you
refused to Boll, glvo or throw away?
Thero is a sontlmontnl respect for sat
isfactory articles nfter tholr days of
usefr'ness nro over but wo had hot
ter draw a picturo of them or writo
ourself a lottcr about them and lot
them go. Hotter than that would bo
to analyzo their dcslrnblo qualities and
increaso our skill on such subjects.
Tho aiticlo, tho ptcturo or tho letter
might easily get away from us but tho
skill would romaln ns a pormnnont
stock in living nbllity. Accuracy in
buying Is n blessing nil around to pur

sends both letters to C who doos tho

A Nickel Mystery.
Whilo watching a nickel In a worn- 1
an's hand I got an illustration of easy 1
unconsciousness to minor surround
lngs. She wns on a car and had paid
tho conductor. In doing so tho coin
hnd got from hor purse to her hand
without hor knowing it. She wnB fool
Ingloss toward It for boiiio timo, but
accidentally Baw It and in a slightly
embarrassed way put it in hor purso
with nn aitlflclal composure
A passenger paid tho faro for him
solf and anothor man. Tho man hnd
ills nickel ready to pay, or thought ho
had, but put it back In his pocket, or
thought ho did. In n short time ho
tried to find it and could not. Then
ho wondored why.
