A HINDOO'KLEVER TiP.
Shows Yaluc of Mcntal Suggestion
in Swearing Off.
Do you wish tO stop smoking or even
drinking? Have you (rie<l and failed?
Don't despnir; it is the casiest thing in
the world to give up the weed, or any
had habit for that matter. Will power
has nothing whatcver to do with it; it
is a mistake people make. They try to
cure themselves of bad habits by will
power, but they can never succeed in
that way. All you need is a little mcn?
A few years ago a very talented young
man was going to pieces because of his
insane desiro for whisky. He realized
his condition, did everything he eould
to stop, but to no purposc. Friends
doserted him; his talents served him no
longer, and the street seemed to be his
only refuge. One day he found himself
in Boston, after a stolen ride on a
freight. and. while wandering aimlessly
through the streets, an amiableold man
stopped and talked to him. The old
gentleman had scen at a glance that
here was a man whose face showed
ability and rcfinement, but on whom
the strong handof drink had takcn hold
so tightly that wreck and ruin were
upon him. The old man learnod everv
thing of the young man's desire to stop
drinking and his utter lack of power to
do so. He said to him:
"Don't be discouraged. I'll take you
to a man right now, a Hindoo philoso
phor. who will tell you how to cure the
drink habit without difficulty andln a
very short time.
They wereushered into a room, where
the Hindoo, a tall, dignifiedman a little
past middle age, met them. He was a
man who believed that clean habits
brought the most happiness and that
mental suggcstion was a great aid in
bringing about such a condition.
'"Young man, you have cxhausted
your will power,' said the Hindoo, after
hearing his story. 'What you need is a
little mental suggestion and you will be
a new man in a short time. You can
apply such suggestion yourself. Let
me tell you how! Now, keep right on
drinking, but whenever you are about
to swallow a glass of whisky think of
something nasty. disgusting, and dis
agreeable in connection with drink. You
see, a bad habit is usually based on the
false principle that you are getting en
joyment out of it. Now, the next drink
you take, just think of something very
unpleasant in connection with it. Think,
if you will, of the starving mother and
children waiting at home for the drunken
husband; think of what a disgusting
thing a drunken man is to the person
who is sober. Think of yourself, of
what your end will be if you continue.
Think of what you might be if you let
the li<|uor alone. Just do these simple
things, and in a very short time you
will have no more taste for liquor. Use
no will power whatever. It isn't neces
sary, and it will do you no good."
Such simple advice at first made the
young man laugh, but the earnestness
of the Hindoo and his new-found elderly
friend impressed him. It was so simple
and it cost nothing to try. He would do it.
That night he earned a doilar doing
an odd job for a saloon-keeper, and hc
proceeded at once to spend the money
at the bar. With his first drink of
whisky he thought of the degradation
of drink, the poverty, the wretchedness,
and the vice which accompany it. Ht
kept on drinking with the same mental
pictures before him. Still he drank
until he was too drunk to stand and
was kicked out of the piace, only to be
arrested and put in a cell.
He was discharged, and again sought
the saloon. Those "drink pictures'
were still with him. He persuaded the
bar-tender togive him a drink of whisky,
promising to sweep the floor or do any
little job for him. Strange to say, he
felt a disgust for that whisky, but he
drank it down, anyhow.
Later in the day he again went into
a saloon to get another drink. He filled
the glass, put it to his lips, but could
not drink it. It seemed like a miracle,
but it was nevertheless a fact. From
that day on that man has never touched
a drop of liquor, and he stands today
high in his profession, honored, and
reyered by all who know him."
"Well," said the newspaper man,
"when I heard this story I thought I
would try it and apply it to my smoking
habit. Really I did not think very
seriously about it, but my curiosity was
aroused and I wanted to see what there
was in it anyhow.
"So every time I lit a cigar I thought
of a cuspidor in a saloon the morning
after. How disgusting it looked with
its cigar stubs and tobacco juice bc
spatterod all over it. Then I thought of
tho men's cabin on a ferry boat, how
filthy it was, and how it smelt. I kept
right on smoking. Well, do you know
in a very short time I got a disgust for
smoking. I remember one morning
lighting a cigar, taking a few puffs and
throwing it away in disgust. That was
something rernarkable with me. Later
in theday I lit another cigar, but I could
not smoke it. I was absolutely cured
of the habit just by this little mental
suggestion. I have not smokod since,
and that is ten years ago, and I have
not the least desire over to smoke again.

THE MAN OF CHEER.
We Iove the man with a smile, the
man with the roses on his tongue, the
man who sees your boy's dirty face but
mentions his bright eyes, wbo notices
your shabby coat but praises your stu
dious habits, the man who sees all the
faults but whose tongue is quick to
praise and slow to blame. We like to
meet a man whose smile will light up
dreariness, whose voice is full of the
music of the birds, whose hand-shake is
an inspiration, and his "God bless you"
a benediction. He makes us forget our
troubles as the raven's dismal croak is
forgotten when the wood thrush or the
brown thrasher sings. God bless the
men of cheer!
There is plenty of trouble here, but
we need not increase it. There is a lot
of dying ahead of time. There are
living men, who have already crossed
Jordan two or three tirnes, and, unfor
tunately, they are not of the type who
"cross the river of Jordan happy in the
Lord," but who sing, if theysing at all,
dismallest, dreariest, deadliest music.
The very tone is fatal to happiness. If
you have faith, preach it; if you have
doubts, bury them. If you have joy,
share it; if you have sorrow, bear it.

AGRICl LTURAL 111 (.11 SCHOOLS.
There was introduced at the last ses
sion of Congress a bill to appropriste
$8,000,000 annually for industrial educa
cation in high schools of secondary grade.
It is proposed in that bill to devote
about half of this sum to instruction in
mechanic arts and home economics in
city high schools and half to instruction
in agriculture and home economics in
agricultural high schools. There have
been established in various States be
tween thirty and forty agricultural high
schools articulating wi th the rural schools
below and with the agricultural colleges
above. As these schools return most of
their graduates to country life, they are
properly said to articulate with the farm
also. This bill would cause the States
to establish two or three hundred more
of these agricultural high schools, one
for each ten agricultural counties.
Numerous cities have established me?
chanic arts high schools, and others have
introduced mechanic arts and home ec?
onomics as elective studies into their
general high-school courses. ?From
