Only Success That Is Cleam
in the Sight of God
D YING, Horace Greeley said:
an accident, riches take wings;
those who cheer today wil
curse tomorrow, only oni
thing endures and that is character.'
Life's one great task is the makinj
of character, the making of fine man
hood. Our world is a college. We al
go through it, but only some get muel
out of the course of instruction. Iz
this college events are the teachers
and character is the diploma whict
God gives man when he has earne
it. There are many forces that hell
to increase happiness in this world
such as friends and position, ani
money; but one thing is absoluteli
indispensable to success, s d that ii
Success, in these days, is a word t(
conjure with. It is echoed on all side!
as the one object of existence, an(
men are measured by its standards
We fall over each other in our hurr3
to pay homage to th Mar, Who ha,
won success in the world's judgment
But are we not under a delusion as t<
what we really admire?
Hero Worship Tells Much.
If I knew what you admire and wh
is your hero, I would know what sor
of a man you are. This mountain o
flesh and bone which has bee% tral.
as an oi for the prise ring? V al
. the vapid and vacant countenances
nothing can eqdtil it fiiernfty. P3
perhaps you admire this man who hai
created an extensive business an(
amassed a fortune, or attained higl
social position. But does it not mak(
a difference how these things weri
attained? Or perhaps your hero mai
be a man who has reached high po
litical rank, the presidency of the
United States. But does it not mak4
a difference whether he was squeeze
in by party politics, or whether he hai
risen by his own intrinsic worth, anc
is the choice of the people?
Success lies not so much in achlev
ing what you aim at, as In aiming al
what you ought to achieve. Your ot
dread should be to pitch the scale o;
life so low that you can attain perfec1
*success therein.
There is a success which is failure
What effect has quecess had upon thit
or that man? Has It made him a bet
ter man, nobler and kinder; or has 11
made him hard and unfeeling and ar
rogant? If so, then his'. success hat
been a failure. I could not congratu
late you-if you had succeeded in mak
-lug a fire by burning up a pricelest
painting, neither can I admire a mar
who has destroyed his character and
soul in making a fortune or attaini
a position. That man has made 5
most terrible failure of his life. Suc
cess in business, literature, society
politics, is often purchased by a sub
tle and sinister compromise with
Satan. He takes us up on a high
mountain, and shows us all the glitter
of the world, and says: "All these will
I give thee if thou wilt fail down and
worship me."M
Failure Sometimes MisJudged.
There is failure which is success.
May we learn this lesson of - human
life, and It is one of Its important les
sons, that lives which aim at low ends
are often redeemed by failure to at
tain them. Many men owe their soul's
salvation to their failures. Mischance
has shattered their plans, and they
have been saved from careers which
Iwould have led to their ruin. Many a
man whom the world counts a failure
has attained good success. He may
not have much evidence of it in the
bank, but he bears about with him the
marks of success, in his body in clean
Iliving, in a cultured mind, and in an
upright soul.
One of the most successful lives
ever lived was that of St. Paul, and
yet at the end of his life what did he
have to show for it? Lying in a dun
geon in Rome it does not take him
long to count up his assets. He says,
"I bear in my body the marks of the
Lord Jesus." He had lived a wonder
ful life, and that was all he had to
I hope you are making a success of
-your life. I do not want to know
what your bank account is, nor what
position you hold. But I want to know
what marks are being stamped upon
your body and soul. Are they the
marks of indulgence, of uncontrolled
temper, of some besetting sin, of envy
and avarice, and an evil mind? Or is
your life growing sweeter and strong
er as you grow older? Are you grow
ing in truth and uprightness and in
lov'e? If so. then you are attaining
that success which leaves no regrets,
which is clean in the sight of God and
man, and which God promises to those
who love him.
Man would fain find some personal
friend who would lead him unto great
personal worth. To fulfill that deep
est need, Jesus Christ comes to us and
says: "Learn of Me." He comes to
hasten man's step along the pathway
that leads from littleness to greatness.
and greatness lies not in titles, but in
the qualities of mind and soul raised
to the highest prower. Jesus is the
Divine Husbandman, and good men
are the richest fruit which our earth

Steel Trust Philanthropy at Its Best
is Exemplified In Recent
Defenders of the steel trust have
placed much emphasis on the asser
tiop that it never has used its vast
power to the disadvantage of inde
pendent manufacturers, who, they
declare, have been permitted to
grow and prosper.
According to these apologists, the
Steel corporation is a model of dis.
interested philanthropy. So far from
seeking to monopolize the steel
trade of the country, it continually
is devising some means of assisting
its smaller competitors to make
their business profitable.
Some recent statistics supply cer
tain details of this philnthropic pol
icy which may prove Interesting.
For instance, there is in the Du
luth, Missabe & Northern railroad
which runs from Duluth to the iron
ranges of northern Minnesota. It
connection with another road, which
is under the same ownprship, thin
line carries one-half of all the Iron
ore used in the United States.
Some conception of the rates tha1
are charged for this service may b4
formed when It is stated that thin
road paid dividends of 150 per cen1
the first year after its control pass
ed to the steel trust, as compared
with 6 per cent the year preceding
It paid 145 per cent in 1909.
This concern, consequently, is no1
greatly interested in the matter of
rates. It merely takes the money
from one pocket to put it in another
But how about the independents1
The rate that makes such enormous
profits possible is a tax on their bus
Iness which operates in favor of the
steel trust, exactly as the tariff
operates to protect the woolen mills
of New England.
A little more such paternal inter
est would, wipe the Independents off
the man.

President McCormick Makes a
Reply to Charges,
Etatemnnt ls:ued in Connectoi with
t:.e Government's Suit to Ols
aIve international Har.
vester Company.
The government Clod a dissolution
suit in the federal court at St. Paul,
Minn., April 20, against the Interna
tional Harvester company, - alleging
violatlon of the Sherman law and mak
ing the general charges that are cus
temary in a bill of this kind, and ask
ing for whatever reliefs are consid
ered necessary by the court The bill
is a very long one and therefore can
not be reproduced, but It sets forth,
in effect, that the Harvester company
is a monopoly in restraint of trade,
has used oppressive methods in forc
ing Its agents to handle its goods ex
clusively, etc. To these charges Pres
ident McCormick has made the fol
lowing reply:
"The International Harvester case
differs radically in its facts from all
the so-called 'trust' cases heretofore
decided under the Sherman law. The
International Harvester company was
organized In 1902 for the purpose of
securing economy in the manufacture
and sale of harvesting machinery, and
of Increasing the foreign trade. It
had no water in its capitalization, and
it has earned only a reasonable return
on its capital,-less than 7 per cent
per annum on the average. The prices
of Its machines are now substantially
the same as in 1902, notwithstanding
an increase of 15 per cent in raw. ma
terial prices and 30 per cent in wages.
The company has caused a large sav
ing to American farmers In the cost
of agricultural implements. It has in.
creased the foreign trade In agricul
tural Implements four-fold in nine
years; Its foreign sales in 1911 were
over $42,000,000. It has not sold cheap
er abroad than at home. Its treatment
of its customers, Its employes, its
agents and its competitors has been
in accord with the highest standard
of ethics and honorable business meth
ods. To the farmers It has given bet
ter service and better machine,; to
agents and dealers, a lees hazardous
and fluctuating business and to Its em
ployes It has given higher wages, im
proved and sanitary working condi
tiena, insur::nce against sickness, ao
cident and cid arge, and a share in the
"The chrrces cf milsccnduct found
in theo hli have bcen met and dis
proved by ti:o ccmr'rny in other- cases;
an;d they vill 'in fail, because they
are untrue. The supreme court of
2.as souri. in a suit in which those
charg:es "cvre fiiy ;:cne into, said:
"'n the whob, the evide'nce shows
that the ln:crna:ional Harvester- com
pany has tot used is power to oppress
or injuro the farmcas who are its cus
"And again:
"'The price of harvesting machines
has not Increased in proportion to the
increased cost of construction cr the
increased merit of the machines, and
respondent has brought other farm im
plements into trade,"
"-'The evidence also shows that the
machines manufactured Dy the Inter
national Harvester company have been
greatly improved in quality and the
item of repair material has been re
duced in price and placed within closer
reach of the farmer.'
"The organizers of this sompany
acted under the advice of able counsel,
and in the sincere belief that they
were violating no law. If under later
decisions it should be held that the
law was violated, it could only be
through the creation of a power to op.
press which has never been exercised.
"More than six years ago the comn
pany asked for Its investigation by the
United States government, and opened
all Its books and records for inspec
tion, and furnished all information re
quested. No suggestion of any change
In its business methods has been readsi
to it by the government at any time.
Recently, a full and frank discussion
of the whole situation has been had
between the representative, of the. gov
ernment and the company, in a bon
est desire upon both sides to avoid
litigation. Same plan may yet be
found which will obvtate the necessity
of any pre#-acted iitigation by satis
fying the claims made under the Sher
man act wi:hout seriously impairing
the economic adman ages and benenite
secured by the organization of this
company. No form of reo--ganization,
however, was suggested by the gvern
ment which seemed practically pos
