Every Youth Should Work for
Philadelphia Public Ledger.
Man is triune, and the highest
ideal of a complete nun or wo.
man is a healthy body, a strong
clear mind and a pure character.
The absence of either makes lift;
a failure and a pain. An ideal ed
ucation, then, includes physical,
mental and moral development.
The omission of either is a great
weakness in any scheme of edu
Therefore, fortunate is the man
who has an opportunity to work
with his hands or body while he
is training his constitution as a
foundation, and weaklings must
fall out- Mut with the inherited or
acquired physical basis the stu
dent who earns his living and ihe
living of some dear one while he
studies in his college course will
outclass all competitors. The his
tory of our great men and women,
past and present, proves that
The boys and girls who paid
their own way and learned td
economize closely ajid to work
hard are the most influential class
in every community. Many a- rich
man's son has been destroyed b>
too much money in the days when
he needed most to be taught to
earn money and to take care o'
"It would be a great blessing tr
the nation if every student was
compelled lo earn all of his ex
penses while in college or univer
sity. We would become a nation
of mighty men. A very rich man
in Vermont informed me that he
told his oldest son that ?if he (th:
son} did not earn his own ex
penses during the four years o|
college at Burlington he would
uirely disinherit him. That son i:

VALUE OF EDUCATION.
I think we may assert that in
too men there are more than 9C
rho are what they are, good O?
>ad, useful or pernicious to so
:iety, from the instruction they
lave received. It is on education
hat depend the great differences
observable among them. The least
md most imperceptible impres
;ions receiv ed in oqr infancy have
:onseq?ences very important, and
of a long duration, lt is with those
first impressions as with a river,
whose waters we can easily tu?r
by different canals,' in quite oppo_
.ite courses; so that from the in
sensible, direction the stream re
ceives at its, sources, it takes dif
ferent directions, and at last ar
rives at places far distant from
each other, and with the same fa
jility we may, I think, barn the
ninds of children to what direc-.
lions we please-Locke.
THE BONDING COMPANIES
ARE AGAINST DRINK.
Men desiring io occupy certain
positions of trust in . the United,
".tates must be bonded by regular
"bonding companies," one of
? y hose main .questions is, "Do yov
Ifink intoxicating liquors? " If
this question is answered in the
affirmative, the company will re
fuse to bond the applicant. It is
said that over two minions of int

WAYS OF WORKING
Plenty of Opportunities Where
There's a Will.
Madison C. Peters in New York
A college education is an in
vestment of from S 1,000 to S10,
ooo and the only men who can
not make interest on the invest
ment are those who have no spe
cial qualifications as men. It ii
not so much a question as to what
college you have gone through, as
how much of thc college has gone
The majority who do go tb col
lege must work their way through.
The expenditure has mightily in
creased with the prosperity of thc
times, but there are hundreds of
colleges whose tuition is low and
often free, and where the ex
penses can easily be met by one's
own exertions, and the covcjed
prizes are the most frequently car
ried off by these self-reliant stu
Many a boy by earlier rising
has made his way by selling news
papers. Those with musical talent
have found an easy way- The
young man who starts off with a
good knowledge of stenography
and typewriting has a small for
tune at command. Newspaper re
porting of college gaines and
other athletic news can be made
a source of income.
Teaching evenings opens a wide
field. Th? teacher's desk has been
the best stepping- stone to fame
and fortune. At many colleges
young men with executive ability
run eating clubs, whereby they gel
their own board free; others are
waiters for a few hours a day;
some have little stationery stands
in their own rooms and not a few
have bootblack parlors. Every col
lege has its agency for laundries,
athletic goods, etc. ' 1
If an ambitious barber ?should
happen to read this, and would
like a college education, let him
go ahead, take his chair, his razors
and scissors, his soaps and brushes
along with him, set up the para
phernalia in his room, and suc
:ess is bound to come.
If you are a tailor and sigh for
new worlds to conquer get a move
on, make for the college best
suited for your capacity and start
right up to fceep your fellow stu
dents' clothes in repair.

LOOK YOUR BEST.
There is great power in ap
pearance. You are usually judger1
by the way you look, and you usu
ally look the way you feel. But
you can feel the way you like, and
you can live in any mental atti
tude you like. Therefore, discard
alj attitudes of inferiority. Never
think of yourself as inferior.
Never appear-as 'if you were in
ferior. The mind and the body
should be well dressed, especially
the mind. If you look common,
you will think pf yourself as com
mon, and he who habitually
thinks of himself as- common be
comes common. ;
To look your , best is not ex
pensive. Clothe your mind as
richly as you can; that will cost
vou nothing; and be as neat, as
?lean, and as presenfable in per
son as you can. Anything that
tends to make you reckless will
weaken mind, character and abil
ity. Make it one of your strong
points to always look your best,
both in person and in counte
nance. And tojook your best you
jnusi think your best, and feel

THE CASH VALUE OF EDUCA
The best way to illustrate the
cash value of an education is by
a simple process of arithmetic
You can easily obtain the value
of the time spent at school by
subtracting the earnings of a life 1
of UNEDUCATED labor from
thc earnings of a life of EDU
CATED labor. If an UNEDU
CATED man earns one dollar -
and fifty cents ? day for three
hundred days in the year, he does
very well indeed, and if he keeps 1
it up for forty years he will earn
Si.5oX3ooX4o, or $18,000.00.
An educated man usually works
hy the month or year. One thou
sand dollars a year is a low aver
age for* the earnings of educated
labor.'If the educated man works
for forty years then you have ,
S 1,000X40, or $40,000 as the
earnings of the educated man. By
subtracting $; 18,000 from $40,- i
OOO you will obtain S 22,000 i
which must represent the value of j
the time spent at school getting
an education. What then is the ;
cash value of each day spent at
school? Suppose it lakes a child i
eleven years, counting 200 school i
days per year, to' obtain a suffi- ?
dent amount of education to .
place him in the St,ooo per year
class, making a total, of 2,200 '
days spent' af school A simple di- i
vision, namely--$22,000 divided \
by 2.200 will give TEN DOL- (
LARS per day for the days spent
in the school rooms. DOES
EDUCATION PAY i
One of the most impressive j
facts of history is that thousands
of the world's most successful
men started without the ghost of
a chance. There is not an "occu
pation/or profession in existence ,
that has not been glorified by <
men or boys who, at ' the start,
were no greater than the average \
boy or man. Getting started has '
ever been the supreme moment in
most men'" careers, lt's impossi- <
ble to learn to swim without first
geiiing inio the water. We learn ?
by doing and we learn it in no ,j
other way. John Wanamaker ?
walked four miles as a boy in or- ,
der io clerk Sn a book store for' 4
one dollar and twenty cents a :
week. He and the nook store ??
grew* together, finally he outgrew, .
the book store, and it now takes

the world to hold him. Most of

SAILING OR DRIFTING-?
There arc two kinds of men iii
the world; those who sail and
those who drift; those who choose)
the ports to which they will go,
and skilfully and boldly shape
their course across thc seas with
the wind or against it, and those!
who let the winds and tides carry
them where they will. The men
who sail, in due time arrive; those;
who drift, often cover greater dis
tances and face far greate/ perils,
but they never make port- Thef
men who sail kno\y where they
want to go and what they want to
do. They do not wait on luck, or";
fortune or favorable currents;
they depend on themselves,- and!)
expect no help from circum
stances. Success of the real kind
is always in thc man who wins it.
not in conditions. No man be
comes great by accident; gren'
things are never done by chance.!'
a man gets what he pays for-ir
character, in work, and*!;, energy
A boy would better put luck oiit
of nir mind if he means lu accoiii
plish anything. There are few
really fine things which li? cannot
?^ef if he is willing to pay tlx
price. Men fail, as a rule, because
they will not pay'the price of the
thing they want; they are not will
ing to work hard enough, to pre
pare thoroughly enough, to put
thf mselves-heartily into what the
are doing. The only road to ad
vancement is to do work so weil
that you are alway, ahead of the
iemands of your positron. Keep
ahead of your work, and your
dvork will push your fortunes for
voit. Oift employersdp hot decide
whether we shall' stay yViier> "ive
are or go oh and tip ; we decide
tint matter ourselves. We cari
drift along? doing our work fairly
well; or we can set our faces to
the front and do our work so weli
that we .cannot be kept back. In

fortunes. Success or failure are

them for ourselves.-Hamilton
