ABILITY ALLOWED TO WASTE
Situation Exists That Is Not Flatter.
ing to the Intelligence of
For some reasons it is fortunate
that we do not, as a rule, appreciate
how much ability is wasted in this
world, remarks the Boston News and
Courier. If we did out opinion of
man's intelligence would not be very
flattering, to say the least. On the
other hand, however, it Is quite prob
able that if we did realize something
of the vast amount of ability that
goes to waste we would do all we
could personally to cheek this loss. A
large part of this wastage is accouni
ed for by the fact that there are a
great many persons who unconscious
ly and yet most earnestly develop
their weakest instead of their strong
est faculties-unconsciously because
they are entirely ignorant of their
real possibilities, earnestly because
they are trying to do their best with
the limited means at their command.
Of course, many of these persons, wlll
ing workers though they may be, are
not able to tell in what direction their
talents lie because they enter into
the serious business of making a liv
ing with untrained minds and try to
dig success out of whatever comes
to hand first. ''hey do not take the
time to decide in what direction their
natural bent lies, either through lack
of opportunity or failure to nppre
elate the necessity for doIng so; con
seqiently, they are all at sea for a
percentage of eflicieney, if indeed, with
any worthwhile resuits at all.
Food and ralment are for the
body, but flowers, flowers are for both

Aladdin's lamp as the sun eclipses a
