MISSES NELLIS HONORED. Roosevelt Speaks For Himself. Speaking of himself. Governor Roose velt writes on "The Personal Equation in Politics" in the June number of The Review of the Republic, and says: "I am a little inclined to envy a man who can look forward to a long and steady course of public service; but in my own case such a career is out of the ques tion; and personally it seems to me that a man's comfort and usefulness are greatly Impaired the moment he begins to get worrying about how his votes and actions will affect his own future. When I was in the legislature I soon found that for my own happiness as well as for the sake of doing good work, I had to cast aside all thoughts of my own future: and as soon as I had made up my mind to this and voted simply as I thought right, not only disregarding politicians, but even disregarding peo ple themselves, if I honestly thought them all wrong on a matter of principle, not of mere expediency, then I began thoroughly to enjoy myself and to feel that I was doing good."
