The Relation of The Automobile to
It has been said1 that "the nti

Only One Road to Success.
Young man, there is one thing
yon cannot do. You cannot make
a success in life unless you work.
Older men than von have tried
it and failed. You cannot loaf a
round the street corner, smoke,
tell stories and sponge on sonic
one else without making a failure
of life. You must learn a trade
or get into some honest business.
If ou don't will become a chron
ic loafer, and there is no place in
the world for loafers. The ripe
fruit is at the top of the tree and
you must climb it you get it or
some smart man will pluck it
from you. Do something, no mut
ter how small or bow low the wa
ges, it will be a starter Help
voiir.self and. others will help u.
Tie re is no roval road to Miccevs;
will, grit and euduraii'-.. are tlie
qu lities that lead to it.
