During the time spent in this

that no text book teaches, among |
them the secret of the success

that while knowledge was a nec
essity it was not the only thing
-tact, energy, sympathy and
kindness counted for more. The

not inevitably the most prosper

The Worlds Host Northerly
Hall road. .
The most northerly railway in
the world was opened a. few weeks
ago. For its wtl)ole length it lies
within tho Arctio region. The
greater part of it is in Sewish terri
tory, and only a small part outs
through the narrowest portion of
Norway until it reaches the Nor
wegian harbor of Narvik. The
chief object of the line, which now
connects the northern -Boltic with
the Atlantic, is to open up the rich
I mineral resources of north Sweden

be known as the Ototen Une, is
