your man just: about as well as
his twin brother People taik abous
physiognomy being bosh; I tell you unless
a man is a thorongh physiognomist he has
no business to try to sell goods. You must
be able to ‘size up' your purchaser all
through. If you tell a racy story to-a church
deacon, o 1 if you oifer the probibitionist can
didate for ‘ustice a drink out of your private
bottle, or if you try to get the viliage free
thinker to direct you to prayer meeting, you
will make an expensive mistake. Yeu must,
Aike St Paul, be Xil things to ol pen—and
moretnan that, the right things to the right |

sense, not the slang—genial, and tboroughly

wve made a good drummer—is had such a
knowledce of human nature. ‘Costly your
raiment’ is & good rule; ‘put money in thy |
purse’ another. In fact, ! could take a couple {
of Shakespeare’s plays and give you the
whole art and theory of selling goods out of ’
them.”
“But to coms to particulars. These are
general rules.”
“My dear sir, you must apply the princi

the same way. You must attack each map

The Future of Armig |
Small and large armjes bave ghch k thdrl
day. The present age is one off large m
of fairly trained soldiers, byt it is by mo
means osrtain to me that the fime may =N
yet come again when all nafions will onde
more resort to small standing armies of the,
most highly trained and disaiplined soldiers.
We may find shat the ier, to be at his
best, or to be even thoroughly efficient, will
require such long and, above all things, such
constant training, that an army consisting
of a people in arms will be impossible. In
fact, we may find out by and by that a com
paratively small standing army of carefully
gelected men, the flower of the nation, highly
gkilled in ail manly exercises, in all military
arts, and kept in a constant state of perfect
training, is a more effective weapon for
fighting purposes than the slow moving aad
more or less unmieldy armies of the present
day. »
It is only by a deep study of military his
tory, of the military arts and sciences in all
their phases, that the heaven born genius can

Not even Jomini was more thoroughly gon
