^^^^^ HAVE YOU A PURPOSE IN LIFE?
Thirty years ago there were about 9,000,000 boys between 5 and IS years
of age in tho United States.
This year John W. Leonard Issued the 1911 edition of "Who's Who," In
which were published the names of about 15,000 of these people who had
prospered sufficiently to be regarded by the compiler of the book as success
The men and women whose biographies are given in "Who's Who" did
not all come from one class of society. Some of them were born in marble
palaces, and some were found by their first friends wrapped in swaddlng
clothes. Some of them bad ancestors who came over the ocean on the May
flower, and others had parents who came over in the steerage. A few had
learned fathers and mothers, and a great many more didn't. Most of them
were raised in good, religious families, and a few never knew who their
MOST of them prospered because they were engaged in noble pursuits;
SOME of them became prosperous in wrongdoing. Some worked their fingers
to the bone and got IndigeBtlon; others played golf on Saturday afternoons
and took life easy. There seemed to be no fixed rule as to the conditions upon
which success could be achieved. Hut there was such a rule, is now and
ever shall bo. It is that no man can achieve prosperity unless he wants to.
He must have a PURPOSE.
The KIM) of prosperity one achieves depends entirely upon tho purpose
he has. If he has high and noble aims. Iiis prosperity will bo of the kind that
will make him loved by his neighbors. If he works only for money, and is
willing to cheat, lie and steal for it. his prosperity will lie only of money.
But if he has a purpose strong within him, be it good of bad, prosperity is
Prosperity, of course no' real success. REAL SUCCESS comes only
when tlie purpose is HIGH.
Of course the percentage of the boys ami girls of li."> years ago who have
prospered In life is far linger than "Who's Who" or any other directory of
.meat men would seem to indicate, for the majority of the world's greatest men
end women are never heard of outside of their own villages and counties; but
the fact remains that no one of them ever became either useful or prosperous
Without tho aid of a strong, determined purpose.

President Taft's Recommendation to
Amend the Pure Food and
The Pure Food and Drugs Vet.
which has done so much for the peo
ple of America in providing a supply
of pure food and drugs, was adopted
by Congress after many years of In
vestigation and deliberation, and in
spite of the opposition from Import*
an' interests. It has protected the
dealer as well as the consumer against
fraud and imposition as practiced for
years by expert adulterators and sub
One of the splendid features of the
act prohibited misbrnndlng that is.
holding out to the public thai a pro
duct was thus and so, when It really
was not. The misbrnndlng feature of
! tbo act was not as clear as it might
have been and, under a provision of
the act. the Bureau of Chemistry of
the Agricultural Department was em
powered to make rules and regulations
for carrying the administrative fea
tures of the act Into effect. .
j At first mlsbrandlng applied only to
claims which appeared upon the label
or container of an article of food or
I medicine but later on, under a ruling
I of the bureau, the mlsbrandlng pro
j vision was given a wider application
and was held to apply to all state
ments made with reference to the in
gredients, standard of strength and
purity, nutritive or curative values of
a product. The enforcement of the
law for some time was carried on
under this wider interpretation of the
misbrnndlng feature of the act.
About a year ago. In what is known
as the Johnson Cancer Cure Case, the
Supreme Court of the United States
held that the mlsbrandlng provision
of the act had been extended by the
Bureau of Chemistry in nn unwar
ranted manner and that, in the opinion
of this august tribunal, an article was
1 not misbrnnded except misrepresen
tations were made upon the label or
container under which or in which the
article was sold. As the public gen
erally had regarded the act in its
broad aspects and power for good,
it did not make much difference with
them whether a misrepresentation was
on the label, in a newspaper advertise
meat, or in a circular letter, because
the result was tlie bltUlC, viz . that the
purchaser was deceived.
President Taft took this practical
view of the matter in a special mes
sage to Congress, in which he recom
mended that the Pure Food and Drugs
Act lie amended so as to overcome the
delect made manifest h% the Supremo
Court decision in the Johnson Cancer
Cure Case. President Tuft held that
misrepresentation, no matter when or
how made, should he prohibited under
the terms of this act.
At the following annual meeting of
the National Association of Retail
Druggists, an organization compris
ing about thirty thousand retail drug
gists throughout the country, a reso
lution was adopted supporting the
recommendation of President Taft to
Congress and the Legislative Commit
tee of this great organization of re
tall druggists, which the Chicago Tri
bune has termed "the greatest organ
ization of retail merchants in the
world,"' was Instructed to aid In every
possible manner the passage of such
an amendment bill as would make the
President's recommendation effective.
It is now probable that before the
present Congrss adjourns and surely
at the next Congress at latest, all mis
representations of food and drug pro
ducts, on the label or elsewhere, will
be prohibited by the Food and Dings
Act and violators of the law severely
The organized retail druggists of the
country have done much to conserve
the public health and curb evils that
would grow out of their business if
not held in check with an iron hand.
Through the Inlluence of the Na
tional Association and its state branch
es. nntl-COCnlne laws have been pass
ed in about thirty states, and this or
ganization is endeavoring to secure
the adoption of laws that will prevent
the i (Idling of dangerous decoctions
cont, >lng poison, habit-form'ng drugs
and oxlcating liquors by irrespon
sible , inerants and the sale of drugs
and medicines by unqualified dealers.
We back up those recommendations
by quality remedies.
