TUESDAY, JUNE 20, 1010. uj" .Tcffcrs An Object Lesson Aro you ono of those who affect to believe that the days of tho young man's opportunity havo gone and that great success no longer awaits tho poor boy? If you aro, consider then tho story of "Billy" Jeffers, recently appointed general manager 01 mo un inn Pacific Not yet '40 years of age, only 30 to ho exact, JofferB loccuplcs a position only ono stop removed from tho pres idency of one of tho greatest railroads in tho world. Ills tIbo, brought about without tho Influence of wealth, Is a romance of railroading and emphatic testimony to tho truth of tho state ment that success always awaits in dustry and ability. .Tetters started with tho Unlou Pa cine in tho North Platte valley as a barefoot messenger boy. That was less than twcnty-flvo years ngo. When ho ran his ilrat errand, ho was llko a scoro of other boys In every othor city nl tho country, like tho boys who are carrying messages In Choycnno to day. Ho had nothing on which to build his futuro career oxcept a good brain and determination to uso It. Those tytfro tho tools with which Jeffers made good They are tho tools with which every boy can win success. Not every boy, of couirso, Is blessed with aB good a brain as that of "Bll ly" Jotters, but evory boy who Is de termined to use and cultlvato tho brain that naturo has given him,, Is sure of success. Failure is a result (only of waited opportunities. Jcffors wasted nono and his rlso from a placo In tho ranks of tho bare footed messengers to tho genornl man ngorshlp of tho railroad Is tho result of conscientious effort and loyal ser vices.

Rathvon, of Donver, deliv ered a lecture on Christian Science at tho Keith theatro last cvonlng. The attondanco was surprisingly large considering tho Inclemency of tho weather. Judge Hoagland Introduced tho lecturer, who In part said: To be healed In Christian Science cue does not have to understand It. Infidels frequently havo been healed by It, but If ono would understand it or apply it for himself ho must bollovo In tho Bible, for from first to last, from beginning to end, Christian Sci ence Is founded upon tho Bible of our forefathers. Besides tho Blblo thore Is but one o'her text book of Christian Sclcnco, the bfcok, "Science and Health, witn Key to tho Scriptures,' by Mary Baker Eddy, and this book I would commend to evory ono who would learn for him self at first hand tho teachings and practices of Christian Science. A copy may bo obtained through any Christ an scientist, now comprcnen bIvo and lncluslvo Is that book may be.secn when I nnmo to ylou tho head ings of somo of Its chapters, as 101 lows: Prayer: Atonement and Euch arlst: Marriage: Christian science vorsus Spiritualism; Animal Magnet- ism unmasKcu; acience. uuoioKy, Medicine; j'nysioiogy ooiBtops 01 Truth; Creation; Science of Being; Bo no uwou ma AiiBwureui v, u i. sc onco rracuce: icacning uirwuuu Science; Recapitulation.

Just in tho proportion that It is a rlghteouB prnyor, loes it heal tho OIL COMPANY .OMAHA A sick and reform tho sinner, Christian Science is showing that true gratitude, tho gratltudo that is oxprcssed In deed as woll as In thought and word is more than a mere Chris tian grace, it Is a Christian necessity. Not that God needs our gratitude, but that wp need to gtvo It to Him. Gratl tudo takes our thought from getting to giving, and ho who gives good gets good. For every good that comes to you, let somo thought of gratltudo to God ring through tho Innermost chambers of your heart of hearts. Do this faith fully and soon you will be doing It eas ily and soon, too, you will find yourself bo frequently in tho sweet company of happiness that life will seem to be beginning anew. And It will uo the beginning of now things, for gratitude Is cne of the gateways through which God's blessings enter men's lives. If wo koep It shut, need wo wonder why more of coed does not come to us? Tho man wfio Ib 111, the mnn who is unfortunate, tho man who Is afflicted, tho man who has not that which he needs, If ho wonders why, will do well to ask himself often, "Am I grateful enough for what I already have?"
