LgAPERS iMr. Rockefeller on the Limitations qf the Rich MEN WIN BY DIRECTING THEIR YOUTH. By John A. Howland. 0Ask most men of ripened worldly experience the one tiling In their Uvea which thoy regret. Somewhere you will discover that rnost of them are nursing consciousness that they did not "find themselves" soon enough as young men. They let too muny young years run nwny from them. " Youth In disposed to have Its fling. It would need another estate wholly to escape the promptings which come to the young hend on the young shoulder. Hut In these later years especially) when no much of the world's work Is In the lninds of the young man, It Is mora than ever devolving upon him to xet a line on himself. So many of the world's ways and means are new so mnny of the world's arts are to he learned In the scientific and technological schools that the young man must be both student and worker. The young man cannot be too alert to the significance of all that he comes In touch with In the life of the outside world. There Is no phase of life which may not yield to him under observation, something by which his after course may be directed and shaped. lie cannot too soon learn the face of Opportunity. Ho cannot too quick ly cast off the non-essentials which would clog his prog ress. MODERN MOTHER MERELY A HOUSEWIFE. By Laiy Mae Lartn. 1 J A Greek philosopher has advised that "If B any man has two louves, let him sell one and El buy lilies, for the soul has Its needs as well fj as the body." This Is the kind of catering B for the housewives of the future, to collect the flowers of heart, and mind, and soul to 4 deck the board, so that the breadwinner, worn Al with the tolls of the day, will find more re- MReLJ fresuraeut than In the present monotony of mutton. It Is In such an atmosphere that patriots are raised and noble qualities find favorable soil. What elements in the home as It exists to-day can be dispensed with? The departments sentenced to disappear are many. The basement would be 'gone, with its scullery, Us coal cellar and its dust bin. The pantry would be gone, with its redundant knives and forks, napery and plate. The servants' hall would disappear, and, greatest change of all, the troops of servants would be gone. Upstairs the dining room would bo gone, ami the drawing room alia All the spare bedrooms would be gone, and most of the servants' bedrooms. What, then, would remain? Father's sitting room would be left. .Mother's sitting room would be left And, best of all," the children would remain, taking tbelr right place in the house, the first place, each with a private room always welt warmed and lighted, and designed for rest, meditation or private work, places where young minds would have that space, leisure and solitude which Induce true growth. Women must move the public mind. They must sit on public governing boards. They must ley their hand on the governing machinery of the country, which Is the true way, the legitimate way, Indeed, the only effective way of getting nuythltig properly done, evea for the home. PAST AOES NOT WITHOUT VIRTUES. By Walter Bagahat. J Nation making Is the occupation of men in B the early ages. And it Is war that makes El nations. Nation changing comes afterward, rJ end is mostly effected by peaceful revolution, Lf though even then war, too, plays its part. W The Idea of an Indestructible nation Is a mod JL ern idea; in early ages all nations were de y slructlble, and the further we go back the 9ea7J more Incessant was the work of destruction. Many sorts of primitive Improvement are pernicious to war; an exquisite sense of beauty, a love of medita tion, a tendency to cultivate the force of the mind at tho expense of the force of the body, help In their re spective degrees to make men less warlike than they would otherwise be. Hut these are the virtues of other ages. The first work of the first ages is to bind men to' set her In the strong bond of a rough, coarse, harsh cus tom. And tho incessant conflict of nations effects this In the best way. Long ages of dreary monotony are the first facts In the history of human communities, but those ages were not lost to mankind, for It was then that was formed the comparatively gentle and guldable thing which we bow rail human nature. " CHARACTER MAIN FACTOR IN SUCCESS. By William B. H. Ueky. ""1 One of the most irapartant lessons that ex- JmA iwrleuce teaches Is that on the whole and In B the great majority of cases success In life de- FJ I fiends more on character than on either In- W I tellect or fortune. Temperance, industry, In- W I tegrlty, frugality, self-reliance and self-re- . I strnlnt are the means by which the great Bk I masses of men rise from penury to comfort, 9BcJ and It is the nations in which these qualities are most diffused that In the long run are the most pros perous. ( Cardinal Newman has painted the character of the per feet gentleman: He Is one who never inflicts pain. He carefully avoids whatever may cause a Jar or a Jolt In the minds of those w Ith whom he is cast. He is tender toward the bashful, gentle toward the distant, and merciful toward the ab surd. He makes light of favors while he does them, and seems to be receiving when he is conferring. He never speaks of himself except when compelled. He has no ears for slander or gossip. He has too much good sense to be affronted by an insult He Is too clear-headed to be unjust. He Is as simple as be Is forcible and as brief as he is decisive. Nowhere shall we And greater candor,, consideration, indulgence. The Goal 1smm irfc, The studio was In darkness. By the window one spot of red light showed Itself In the Intense gloom ; It was the lighted end of Ralph Paterson's cigar. It was a cheap cigar, and Its rank flavor struck unpleasantly upon his palate; but Ralph Paterson continued to smoke It "For my sins," be said to Ulmseir, "and they are many against art and against my fellow artists If I am to believe what the world says of me." Ralph Paterson was engaged In that dreariest of all'droary tasks; he was marshaling to an undeslred goal an unwilling conscience; he was explain Ing elaborately to himself why It was that the fates had been unkind when they bad thrown him Into the world minus an artistic love of or patience under misfortune, plus the artistic delight In painting pictures for bis fellow-beings, which the great public would have none of, despite his per slstencr. There was upon the easel by the window a canvas. Ralph In the dark ness could not see It; but be was In tensely conscious of Its presence with htm In the room. It was an old can vas, ten, fifteen years old; one of the last of those earlier paintings of bis which had won him In his youth a -certain fame with picture dealers of a fifth-rate taste they were the expres sion of the Ralph Paterson of fifteen years ago, who had never dreamt any but the roost unexciting -dreams of comfortable, homely fame. They had been the product of an artist who had seen no life outside the narrowing ar tistic conventions of an unambitious art school In a little manufacturing town In the Midlands. This one of these was a terrible thlug, or so It seemed to Ralph Pater son as he sat there In the black dark ness and called It to mind but Its kind had brought hlra In a livelihood! There was merit in It, merit because It gavo promise of better thtugs; It was that merit that twisted Ralph Paterson's lips as be thought upon It "What Is merit promise?" he said aloud. He rose and began to pace to and fro In the darkness. A simple enough feat; for the room was bare of aught but the necessities; a bed, an easel, a cheap washstand thrust Into a cor ner, a row of pegs behind the door. And he had begun differently! He laughed at the thought of the first few years of comparative affluence, follow ing the sale of several canvases, when he bad, returning from a strenuous apprenticeship to a new Ideal in the Latin quarter, lived upon bis small :apltal and Irlgh hopes. Those days were far enough away now! He tossed the end of bis cigar away with an exclamation. He crossed to the window, and stood there looking down upon the hurrying crowd below. The night was wet, and a sea of drip ping umbrellas moved past In an end less stream, their owners unseen by the watcher above. Numberless women! Women out oa such a night! One, another, and an stber, and another! A sea of women, tad every one her own distinctive self. dividing them from one another, and yet to blm, how great! He was thinking of one woman. He wondered. But no, It was Inconceivable she could have waited for blm! Waited, too, for what? He said aloud. "Rut there Is one, this last chance, to sink or swim. To morrow !" Yes, he had come to this that be had staked bis all on one last throw; bis future as an nrtlst, the wooer of for tune, fame, applause, rested upon a question of to-morrow's ruling. And the contingency was so remote; the possibility that the picture he had sent In mlsbt be bung In the academy for this year. This was his tow, after years of contemptuous Ignoring of tho expert Judgment that had in the past thrown his out again, and yet again, from among those whose work they approved, and he condemned. He was giving himself his last chance! And, meantime! He dropped the blind and walked to the door. He took down from It his cap. He went out Into the wet night "It Is really remarkably like Selena Selena ten, or fifteen years ago. What did you say was the name of the TUBNED AND LOOKED AT TUB SFEAKEB. artist? Ralph Paterson! Ralph Paterson why I remember blm quite well, He painted very nicely when ho was a young man, before he went to Paris or somewhere to gain technique, or color, or something or another he hadn't got. But wbaterer be gained It was less than what he lost and he couldn't find a public for the wretched things he called portraits, and bis sitters called libels when be came back. I have heard that he went under, starved In a garret We all tnougbt be had died Selena, too, for she bad a kind of liking for him. Selena was always like that, always looking after the lame dogs. " The lame dogs! Ralph Paterson turned and looked at the speaker, and she, surprised by his sudden uncon scious movement, stared back at him a moment with some Interest. She said to herself: "I wonder If be Is the author of some of the atrocities I have been criticising freely for the last half hour? He looks decidedly wolfish." She watched blm with undisguised amusement as be moved away, then she turned to her companion; "I wish you would find Selena; she would like to see this, I'm sure. I believe she Is still In the first room." "This lame dog has done well for himself, at any rate." aha thnnvht "Hi has vnt a mnnA iIiav tnm Mm ww it I for the man who had looked at her so keenly. "His face is familiar." she said to herself. "I dare say he know nie." She began to move enterprising ly towards the doorway, where Ralph Paterson had come to a pause, bis dark face standing high above tbe sea of men and women who drifted past nlm. "He Is a head above any of them." she told herself with satisfaction. "It simplifies matters when you are look ing for a person In a crowd like this. In that way both he and Selena are very obliging people Indeed. He would mnke a very good pair with Selena, too; I wonder who be Is. He has an air, though he Is shabby ; but then an artist can afford to do as be likes In the matter of dress, and he certainly can't be nn ordinary, everyday Indi vidual wltb that head.'' Her Inconse--quent thoughts ran on, and when she reached Ralph Paterson she had de cided that she must have met blm at some time or another, and have for gotten. "Though he Is not tbe kind of man one forgets," she added to her self. She said now, at once holding out a hand: "I can't remember for tbe mo ment where I have met you, but I feel sure that we have seen each other be fore." And then, as he looked at her wltb dawning comprehension, and a certain amusement: "I am Marloc Sefton, of Sefton Park; perhaps we have met In Hampshire." But that was improbable, as they were both aware. None tbe less, Ralph Paterson's smile came, and wltb It a certain reserve of manner. "We have met yes. I am Ralph Paterson." Ills smile, she told herself, was charming, much more charming than In tbe days before be bad gone away to Paris to loso more than he had gained. She said at once, with ready appreciation of the situation: "Then you beard me call you a lame dog?" "I wos that until today," he said. She looked at blm a moment keenly. Then she said softly: "Here comes Selena. Need I Introduce you to her It Is fifteen years since sbo last saw you. " He bad turned as she spoke, and bis eyes followed tbe direction of hers; they rested upon Selena Scandals with a certain fierce self-restraint In them. "No, I think I should need no help to remembrance," be said. She glanced at blm. "They are all very cross with Selena; she Is thirty three and unmarried still ! The Scars dale women always marry In tbelr teens; It Is an unwritten law," she added quickly, "Your picture It Is Selena in her teens," Her eyes asked htm a question. He said In answer to It : "She bos always been tbe one woman In tbe world to me." "And you with her tbe one man, be lieve that and do not keep her wait ing." Tbe pair were close upon then, Se lena and the other. He said abruptly; "Thank you." Yyhen he turned Selena waa holding out her bands to htm with a little ex clamation of astonishment and delight ; before tbe expression In ber eyes tbe other woman looked away, Marlon Sefton's voice was sharp as she said quickly: "He's quite gray, and bo baa had a bad time that'll, nark blm for ever; but I'm glad tea baa got Selena." And Ralph Petersen was saying tc Selena: "It was as inspiration atafe Ing all-oa your-alladelalaTeis By Jolin D. Roclcefeer.

From The World's Work, ., m 0 m Alcoholism and Pauperism. By Henry Smith Williams. SERHAPS tho mosi painstaking and comprehensive Investigations In this line conducted In this country arc those mode quite In dependently by tho Massachusetts Bureau of Labor Statistics nnd by the famous Commltteo of Fifty. Tho one took cog nizance of conditions In Massachusetts only; ,the other secure.) returns from a large' number of charitable organizations In various States. A comparison of tho retmlU of tho two In vestigations Is given In ,.tliu report of the Committee of Fifty In the following words: "The results (of the Massachusetts Investigation) show that In Massachusetts about 39 per cent, of the paupers in almshouses have been brought to their condition by the personal use of liquor, and that about 10 per cent, had come there through the Intempcrutu habits of parents, guardians or others. Our figures, based upon almshouses throughout tho country, give an aggregate of a little less than 33 per cent of cases duu to the personal use of liquor, and about 8.7 per tent, due to tho Intemperate habits of others. While our figures are slightly below those of (Massa chusetts, they are much nearer to them than any other set of figures quot ed, and this fact Is an Important evidence of their general accuracy." It appears, then, that about two-fifths of the paupers cared for In the almshouses of this country demonstrably owe their condition to alcohol. McClure's Magazine. m &f 'Something For Nothing. By President Hyde, of Bowdoln College. HUB most, prevalent vice of the American people Is the desire to get something for nothing. Maine has the disease as badly as Oklahoma or Nevada, This Stato receives thousands of dol lars a yoar of revenue from nil over tho country for organis ing corporations under laws that were drafted in the Interests of thieves to make wholesale stealing easy. A large number of our substantial citizens the other day found themselves the proud possessors of a lot of worthless paper. They had bought bonds In A certain corporation capitalized at six or eight times the value of the con solidated properties, Attracted by the promise that they might pay not in cash, but by notes, and that while their notes would draw interest of only 1260 the bonds would 'be paying Interest an the $1,000, thus giving them a clear profit on their interest accounts at the same tlmo that their bonds were making the expected rise In market value. They woke up to find their notes promptly hypothecated, payment demanded, nnd the securities worth IMS. Swindler and swindled are smooth outside and rough Inside; of the same piece of moral shoddy. The first principle of an honest man, whether farmer, merchant, lawyer or financier, should be to have nothing to do with any enterprise which Is not honestly organized and economically and ef ficiently administered; to let severely alone every form of business which offers him a profit based on a corresponding 1ms to some one else. If you stick to this principle you will lose a few apparent chances to make soma money, but you will escape ten times as many certain chances to loss money.

S I have set down before, there are no fixed meeting-places, no oath-bound pacts, no elected or appointed officers. What need? A Black 'Hand "bad man" walks into an Italian saloon; ho may greet the bartender; he may Ignore blm. But a sign is given, It may be tho scratching of an ear; it may be the re arrangement of a necktlo; It may be the picking of a thread out of. a sleeve. It Is enough. Notlco bus been given that cer tain pouons are to meet the chief tonight at a certain place. Perhaps It Is to be In that same saloon, perhaps In another saloon miles away. That doesn't matter. At the rendezvous at the appointed hour the summoned men are present. Some one proposes a game of zocchlnctta, which Is not unlike the American game of faro. Inasmuch as the police of America have prejudices against gambling, will tho proprietor kindly furnish a private room with a secure Inside lock? He does. The. plot Is outlined, the assignments aro made, the dole from the last effort at blackmail Is distribut ed or the bomb Is produced which is to punish Its failure. The zecchlnetta game thus having been properly concluded, the members of the gang separate perhaps without knowing one another's names. And the next night the same chief may call a similar conclave made up of alto gether different men, or In part of, the same men, and line out another crime. There Is little fear of treachery In the heart of a man wfaoss minions know that he has a score of others Just as ready to revenge treachery at his blddllng as are they themselves. Everybody's Magazine. MP & 9f Africa As Roosevelt LAl raw asjaa ajj Will See It m By Rev. Peter MacQueen, F.R., Q.S - WOULD like to see the president's face when the train pull out of 'Mombasa, and when, after a ride of an hour, he sees the dainty paa, tiniest of deer, no larger than a small collie dog; or the big, lumbering kongonl; or the sprightly Chandler's reed-touck, or the herds of Grant's gazelle (white and black streaks on a roan skin), or the aweet little Thomspn's gazelle, called by sportsmen the "Tommy;" or the shaggy ami. or the rough wart-hogs, or tbe sly Jackal, or the white nnd black of the zebra herds. For I counted in one brief day 959 head of game. They grazed as quietly near our camp as domestic animals at home, and there are as many of them as there are of cattle on the farms of our richest western States. Between Kilimanjaro and Mount ACeru, 12,000 feet, there Is a thick for est for ninety miles, abounding in elephants. When I was there nine of these animate were ahot In one week. The Boer Van Roy and the brothers Trinkard, also Boers, got three elephants between them In as many days. Monchardl, a young Italian, ahot two lions one morning before breakfast, at a settlement called Maransai. Fleischer, a famous Hungarian hunter, bag ged a couple of elephants in an afternoon near Moschl. Several fine young rhinoceros cubs were caught and sent to Bostock's in Hamburg by Max Klein. Sulton Sulima, of the Wachagga tribe, there awaits the president. Of course In British Bast Africa there are the biggest herds of gams In the world. The British government has three game reserves In East Africa, aggregating nearly fifty thousand square miles. The whole East African Protectorate is only- 240,000 square miles, so that the white settlers complain that there are too many game reserves. Lord Delamere and Mr. Bailey, two of the council at Nairobi, ,bve been expelled by Governor Sad ler for Insisting on the reduction of the game reserves and also of the reserves set aside by the British government for the natives for outside the reserves there are sufficient game herds to draw the most famous hunters of tbe world. And this year tho licenses will yield tbe government more than 150,000. On one license you may kill two elephants, two rhlnooerl, two hippopotami, two zebras, six rare antelopes and gazelles; also two of the rare cotobus monkeys and two smaller ones, two male ostriches, two mara bous, two algrsts, common antelopes and gazelles to the number of tea, ten wildcats, ten Jackals, ten wikUplgt, two wolves and two cheetahs. As to lions, leopards and crocodiles, you can shoot as many of them as you oaa get, and that without a Hcense. Leslie's Weekly. Htarlna th Fish.
