SORELY IN NEED OF ADDED
Washington. Oct. 13.—Congress
man J. Hampton Moore of Pennsyl
vania, who, by the way, is a civil en
gineer of repute, has examined the
Columbia river, the Missouri and the
waterway projects in the south dur
ing the last summer and returns to
Washington to express some intelli
gent views on the needs of the coun
try. He speaks for a comprehensive
system of development, including the
entire continent, and says, basing his
observations on extensive travel in
Europe and study of waterway devel
"We are just awakening in this
country to the importance of deepen
ing cur waterways and improving our
harbors. There are fully 50.000 miles
of navigable streams in the United
States, half of which are not suffii
ciently improved to be of any ma
terial benefit to commerce. Thus far
congress has provided for improve
ments largely according to the insis
tence of various localities. One river
has received much attention and an
other river has received little. What
we really need in the United States
is a comprehensive system by which
waterways may be developed so that
depths and widths may be standardiz
ed for ships and barges. The con
gressional commission which is now
touring Europe will probably bring
THE FIRST AUTOMOBILE IN AMERICA, BUILT IN 1868.
This odd contrivance, the first automobile ever constructed, is still in
•xlstence and is soon to be exhibited in a parade in New York. It is nothing
more or less than a steam manikin which draws an ordinary buggy. An
©rdinary steam chest and boiler are rigged at the rear of the vehicle and the
•team communicated to the manikin by means of pipes. It was built by
Joseph Kno of Newark. N. J.. in 1868 and was exhibited years ago in all ths
principal cities of Europe.
IT'S UP TO YOU
Life is just what we make it. Anyone can make a living in this
age of the world. Ambitious men and women want more. They
want to make a life that is worth while.
How Do You Feel About It?
Are you satisfied with yourself? Lay off for 7% minutes and
think it out —time well spent. It does not make so much differ
ence where you stand now, if you are moving up. If you are not
improving your education you are surely stagnating. There is
no middle course. You are either going up or down the line.
Which is it with you? Don't make the mistake of thinking that
because your real estate, your business, or even your salary is on
the up grade, that you should be satisfied with yourself. Success
is not measured by dollars only. It is by dollars, plus knowledge,
plus character. Knowledge is capital, capital is power, power if
rightly used and to advantage makes success. Success can only
come to the man who is trained to take advantage of opportunity.
Our Business Course provides the training for a prosperous car
eer. Do you think enough of yourself to make an investment of
spare moments and a few dollars to put yourself right with your
conscience? Your common sense tells you that every word written
here is true.
Our courses are thorough. Our instruction is largely individual.
Because of this fact our students are able to make much better
progress than students in large schools, where the teachers have
insufficient time for individual instruction. Our equipment is the
very best. Our teachers are practical and experienced. You can
not afford to go through life without a good business education and
be obliged to step aside for the man who is trained. Think this
over carefully. Our fall term starts Monday, Oct. 4. Write ug for

back some ideas with regard to this
Ijethorgy on Atlantic Coast.
"An instance of the manner in
which the people have been lulled to
sleep is displayed along the Atlantic
coast. Canals have been closed up,
which, prior to the advent of the
railroads, were the chief means of
transportation. Today the manufac
turers of New England and of many
of the middle and southern states are
simply unable, because of the heavy
pressure upon the railroads, to obtain
prompt service in the delivery of
freight. New England is practically
bottled up and to a large extent is
handicapped, both in the shipment of
freight and in the transportation uf
passengers in rush times, because of
the dependence upon one railroad
"This is not wholly a New England
condition, however, for the traveler
through the great northwest during
the period of the Seattle exposition
must have observed that the railroads
were simply overcrowded and that the
population of the country is increas
ing more rapidly than the power of
the railroad managers to obtain new
capital to build new roads.
"For some reason or other, there
is strong opposition in Washington to
the opening up of the waterways as
competitive means of communication.
How long this opposition will be able
to thwart the popular will remains to
be seen. Congressmen are beginning
to realize that the people demand fa
cilities for the shipment of commodi
ties and that they want better and
