The time to succeed is when others, Discouraged, show traces of tire The battle is fought in the homestretch— And won 'twixt the flag and the wire! SELECTED. Tour Vacation Ti«e Plan new activities to occupy your vacation time. Brilliant ideas have sometimes been developed by people while play ing, for then the mind is free from fret and worry. If you are sick or overworked, by all means "loaf"—do absolute ly nothing for a while rest the mind, and give the body a chance to recuperate. Thus you will gather new energy and serenitly of mind. On the other hand, very likely you are well—the great majority of us are well. In that case, your vacation will be devoted mosty to recreation of some kind.
