to timl gontvol occupations, so they
can dross well, not soil their clothes
niul handle things with the t!ps of
their fingers. Tliey do not like to
get their shoulders under the wheel,
and they prefer to give orders to otli

doubt that indolence and laziness are
the chief obstacles to success.
When we see a boy who has Just se*
cured a position take hold of every
thing with both hauds and "jump
right into his work" as if he meant to
succeed, we have confidence that he
will prosper. But Jf he stands around
aud asks questions when told to do
anything if he tells you that this or
that belongs 1o some other boy to do,
for it is not his work if he does not
try to carry out his orders in the cor
rect way if he wants a thousand ex
planations when asked to run an er
rand and makes his employer think
that he could have done the whole
thing himself, one feels like discharging
such a boy on the spot, for he is con
vinced that he was not cut out for suc
cess. That boy will be cursed with
mediocrity or will be a failure. There

The Water Carnlvora*
The number of carnivorous creatures
found in the water seems out of all
proportion to the usual order of nature,
but this is perhaps because the minute,
almost invisible creatures of which the
rivers and ponds are full and which are
the main food of the smaller water car
nlvora, live mainly on decaying vege
table substance, which is practically
converted and coudensed into micro
scopical animals before these become
iu turn the food of others.
It is as if all the trees and grass on
land wore first eaten by locusts or
white ants and the locusts and white
ants were then eaten by semicarnlvo

ter weeds, both when living and decay
ing, are eaten by the eutomostraca, the
entoinostraca are eaten by the larvae

by the fish aud the fish are eaten by
