REFUSED TO ADMIT FAILURE
History Records Many Instances
Men Who Rose Superior to Ad
verse Circumstances.
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

' 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

soon after thrashing the flies breed in
the decaying straw, and It is this set
of conditions which produces the se
vere outbreaks.
