SheJl I tell you how one girl taught
l:rol( to Ilka her work? It was a
dreary noug1 oooupatlon In all con
science. She bad to fill la certain
spaces on printed post-cards. Hun
dreds of other clerks vera doing the
jp&me thing, and there seemed to be
r.o opportunity for advance. From
nine In the morning until half-pn&t
tour In the aft?rnj,m she wrote. In
terminably, with an la'-'ruilsslon of a
lia'.f hour for lunch
"At first It soemel M If I should go
mad," she said. ' I wont to tny doc
tor r-nd told hlra the trouble. I told
bin-, that my work wai killing me.
Ho fcliook bin ht'.d and said gruffly:
"You are killing yourself." I demond
(1, hotly, hla reanoti for such a state
ment. Ills reapon-ie I shall never
forget. 'All llfo consists In doing the
eatne work over and over again, but,
thank God, some of us know that
eu h work Is our salvation. Go back
to your office and iuas up your mind
that you will do eocue one thing bet
ter than thoBe who work around you
and then come back to uie aud re
1'ort.' "I went back to mr office, but there
scried no way fjr ma to Improve
upon the old routing. One morning
( bad an Inspiration I had beard
Bumf one tell of the penmanship ex
acted of thoge who do cataloging for
libraries. I revolvod to Iaarn to write
In the fine, exact manner which ap
pears cn card liideitf)3. I hunted up
a friend In a public library and ques
tioned hc-r. For weeks after that I
practiced and finally each post card
that went from my hands bore the
tamp of finished script. You have
vo Idea bow I enjoyed that one small
detail of Intereat In my dally toll, find
In tho end It counted. My perfect
posicnrda could not escape the eyes
ct thone In authority. I think they
Indicated my ability to break away
from set routine. My chief recognized
thin and a promotion ensued. I was
rut to work on chart where my ex
Ri t penmanship was needed."
Our work will mam something to
11s only as we resolv to make It
worth while. To look upon It as a
tiide 1k9uo, to make the part of our
tnv 1u which we to'the least lmport
ntit part In our thoughts and plans Is
to p;:t up a barrier against success
"Kvcry piece of work which Is not
as pood 8B you can uiaks It, In which
you have palmed off Imperfect
ihoupht, niggardly execution; every
busty or slovenly or untrue perform

There is only one best way to learn
how to act: that way is the way of

your energies, your abilities. Ecarn
early lu life to do this, and It will
prove the master habit that wins suc

prised that the heads of great enter
prises can find so much time for so
cial life, for hobbles, for travel. They
cannot understand it t all. They do
not realize that a man of great organ
izing ability, with a splendid system,
can do more effective business In a
single hour at his office than a sys
tcmless man can accomplish in
twelve. It la not the number of hours,
but the effectiveness of tha system
One of the advantages of a college
course Is that It trains the mind to
work by system. Whether he likes
to or not, the student Is forced to
concentrate his mind when the tim
comes, no matter what bis mood, or
how he reels. Four years of training
In this should put the mind Into work

should train the mind to think con

SYSTEM OF PENSIONS INAUGU
RATED BY RAILROADS.
Differences Are Few and Adapted to
Varylna Methods Under Which the
Lines Are Operated.
The following Is a general analysis
of the pension systems of 21 railroads.
These systems are maintained sole
ly by the companies without contribu
tions from employes. One of these
railroads limits the age for entering
service In order to be eligible to a
pension to 50 years, regardless of rail
road experience. Seven limit this age
of entrauce to 43 for persona experi
enced in railway work, 35 for those
Inexperienced, and set no limit where
service requires special qualifications.
Three companies fix 35 end two 45 rs
eardloss of experience, and no limit
where special qualifications are re
quired. Two limit this age to 45 and
one to 35 under all circumstances.
The remaining five companies have no
The average age of retirement In
these 21 companies Is fixed at about
67 years, and the number of years'
service entitling an employes to a
pension varies from 10 to SO years.
One company allows a life pension
of 2 per cent, of the average month
ly pay for the ten years next preced
ing retirement at 65. Another allows
one and one fourth per cent, of the
highest average monthly pay up to $50
during tny consecutive ten years of
service, and In addition three-fourths
of one -per cent, of any excess of such
averago monthly over $60; in excep
tional cases the amount may be in
creased not to exceed 25 per cent.;
not tiuder 1Q nor over $75 per month.
Fifteen of these companies give one
per cent, for each year of service, of
the average monthly pay for ten years
preceding retirement. In oue railroad
this one per cent. Is Increased by a
small superannuation allowance from
the relief department, a mutual bene
fit association supported In part by
the company and lu part by the em
ployes. Another basu-ta pension on
a percentage of tho salary received for
the entire term of. service.
Two companies" pot 6im Is a dally
allowance of from 25 cent to $l.:5,

"ECZEMA ITCHED SO BADLY
I COULD NT STAMD IT."
"I suffered with eczema, on my reck
for about six mouths, begluulng by lit
tle pimples breaking out. 1 kept
scratching till the blood came. It kept
getting worse, I couldn't sleep night
any more. U kept itching for about a
month, then I wont to a doctor and
got some liquid to take. It seemed
as if I was going to get better. The
Itching stopped for about three days,
but when It started again, was evea
worse than before. The ecr.ema Itched
so badly I couldn't etanl It any more.
"I ent to a doctor and be gave me
ome medicine, but didn't do any good.

Ointment, and washed off the affected
part with Cuticura Soap three times a
day, and then put tha Cuticura Oint
ment on. The first day I put It on, it
relieved me of Itching bo I could sleep
all that night. It took about a week,
then I could see the scai come off. I
kept the treatment up for three weeks,
and my eczema was cured.
"My brother got bis face burned
