Failure is not a pleasant word, and It Is not a safe word to use, for you can never be sure. Many a man who has been called a failure even by his friends has turned out to be unusu ally successful, as the Rev. John T. Farls In the Christian Endeavor World shows by the following ex ample: When Sir Henry Bessemer was a young man he perfected a plan for using revenue stamps that promised to save the British government large sums, and he was promised a com fortable position In the employ of the government. Then a flaw was re vealed In his stamp plan, and the easy position slipped from his grasp. Although he had failed, he did not lose courage. Within a few years he Invented the process of making steel that made his name famous and prov ed of incalculable benefit to the world. When Stephen GIrard was twenty six years old, he was the successful captain of a merchant vessel sailing from French ports to the West Indies. But In May, 1776, storm and fog drove him into Delaware bay, and the Brit ish fleet prevented his escaping. He landed at Philadelphia, a captain with out a ship, a seamen who could not leave the land. But within two years he was an American citizen, and with in fifteen years he was the Leading shipowner in Philadelphia. Thirty-six years later he became his country's bank during the war of 1812, and, when after the war only $20,000 was subscribed to a $5,000,000 loan, he stepped into the breach and subscribed for the rest. Phillips Brooks first work after graduating from Harvard college was school-teaching. He enjoyed it and dreamed of success ; but he found that he was not able to control the lively boys under his charge. The difficul ties grew, and he resigned his posi tion. The head master, when speak ing of the successor he hoped to se cure, very ungraciously said that any change, no matter what, could hardly fall to be for the better. Six months after his resignation Brooks entered the theological seminary, and three years later he began his career In the pulpit that made him famous. Failure succeeded failure in Abra ham Lincoln's life; yet every one of the seeming failures had Its part in making the man. When he failed as a shopkeeper, the failure brought out the deep-seated honesty that won for him the confidence and the affec tion of those who knew him. He thought of learning the blacksmith's trade, and even after he had com mitted himself to being a lawyer he thought he might perhaps do bette? as a carpenter. Several times he was defeated when he asked the favor of the people at the polls, but after each defeat he was stronger as a man and more popular with the voters. STABLE FLY NOW SERIOUS MENACE Bite of This Insect Is Far Differ ent From That of Other ' Little Pests. IS CAUSE OF HEAVY LOSS It Breeds in Accumulations of Various Kinds of Vegetable Matter and Also in Manure Spraying Is Not Satisfactory. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) The acute pain produced by the bite of the stable fly brings to any man a sudden realization that this biting in sect is pointedly different from the house fly or typhoid fly, although hitherto his opinion may have been that the two were Identical. Cause Heavy Losses. At times this fly becomes excessive ly abundant aiid occasions heavy losses among nearly all classes of live stock. Year in and year out it is a source of great annoyance, especially to horses and cattle, and is an all-too-common and persistent pest. The adult stable fly resembles the house fly, but Is slightly broader and feeds principally on the blood of ani mals, which it draws with Its long, piercing mouth parts. It breeds in ac cumulations of various kinds of veg etable matter and also In manure, es pecially when the latter is mixed with straw. When straw stacks become wet Adult Female Stable Fly, Showing Body Enlarged With Blood. soon after thrashing the flies breed in the decaying straw, and It is this set of conditions which produces the se vere outbreaks. f -r " - ' s M.
