classes nearer together than anything
else could ever possibly have done in
Europe. In England the mistress and

getful of the sorrow that they may
only recently have suffered. In Lon
don there are plenty of social affairs,
but these are all for a serious purpose.

THE RECIPE FOR SUCCESS I
Keep Your Promlae and Be Up to the
MiAute, Is Advice Worth
Young men-all people, in fact-who
are to be counseled like to have the
advice re-enforced by anecdote, or by
a page of autobiography disclosing 1
personal experience, provided the story 1
is not told Just because of personal
conceit. If men who have worked hard 4
and at last reached the place they 4
sought were polled on the question of 1
their success, most of them would not 1
ascribe it to any very elaborate, in
tricate program. They would attrib
ute it probably to one or two simple 1
habits which anybody whose brain is
alive may discover and acquire.
One of these habits is, no doubt. I
that of being not merely up to the
minute, but on the minute. He who
is prompt may be forgiven a few sins
of several kinds unrelated to the pas
sage of the seasons and the precession
equinoxes. Did you ever go to a place 1
taking it on faith that others would beI
on time, and then stand waiting with
surreptitious dives into the watch
pocket while the others took their
own time, and yours too, assembling?
Rudest and most offensive of all is
the conduct of the public entertainer,
woman or man, who does not hesitate
to keep an audience waiting twenty
minutes or half an hour. At the latter
rate, a thousand people means 900
hours, or nearly twenty-one days.
What right has anybody to be a thief
of time to that extent? If it is socia
ble and fashionable to keep all those
people sitting and palavering in ex
pectancy, then it is time a new Car

Tears and Smiles.

shine, and everything pleasant and

But alas! the blue sky suddenly be
comes overcast. "He" has not writ

the new frock has not come, and so
there will be no eagerly anticipated
evening of amusement and delight.
Away goes the sunlight from the
blue eyes, and down comes the pa
thetic little shower of tears of dis
appointment and unhappiness. Miss
Sunshine no longer lives up to her
pretty name; she feels that she can
not do so.
But she must take heart, for the

An Anclent Civilization.

domestic animals; they raised and
ground wheat, and cooked their food.
