Work sharpens all his faculties and makes him thrifty; idleness makes him lazy and a spendthrift. Work surrounds a man with those whose habits are industrious and honest; in such society a weak man develops strength, and a strong man Is made stronger. Idle ness, on the other hand, is apt to throw a man Into the company of men v hose object In life Is usually the pursuit of unwholesome and demoralizing diver slons. —Darius Ogden Mills.

While waiting for the comple tion of the job he said: “I never sat in a barber's chair when I was a kid. My brother used to go o r er to the engine house and borrow the horse clippers.

PROTECTION FOR THE TOTS Cheap and Efficient Screen That May Be Placed Around the Heat ing Stove. So many little children who are just toddling about get burned by falling against the heating stove, that every stove where there are children about should have some sort in a screen made about it For seve al years we used one made of common 26-inch field fence, made of No. 11 wire. Simply cut enough of the wire to reach around the stove with about six inches of space between the screen and the stove. .Make a base of 2x4 lumber, as the wire alone is not heavy enough to stay in place. It should not be nailed to the floor, but so it can be raised up or sweeping, etc. If a heavy zinc board is used under the 6tove the screen can be made to just fit on the outside of it and thus be more firmly fixed in place. Philadelphia Scrapple. Usa two hogs’ heads, hearts and tongues. Skin the heads, cut off jowls, split heads, removing eyes, ears, brain and tongue. Cleanse. Boil until meat drops from bones (tongues and hearts in separate kettle) and bony pieces. Cool and grind in meat chopper, sav ing liquor. Return meat to liquor, add water to make two gallons liquor, bringing to boil. Thicken with corn meal, salt and pepper to taste, sea soning with sweet marjoram, being careful not to use too much. Cook two hours. Pour into pans. Set In cool place. Slice and fry in drippings or butter, or serve cold wlih vinegar, ts a relish. Hint.—All meats should be "put on" in cold water. Let come just to boil ing. then remove from water and wash. Kettle should be washed be fore replacing meat. Use boiling wa teer the second filling. Season one hour before serving. Steamed Beets. Beets may be cooked in this way in about the same time that it takes to boil them, and this method is a happy compromise between baking and boil ing them. To bake them is not a very economical method when the work must be done by gas, yet by this method they retain every bit of their sweetness and delicate flavor. It is best to use a little water in the pau | when baking them, so they are thus I partly steamed. 'Unless they are cov j ered by another pan, in which case ! the steaming process is more complete, 1 they w ill need to be turned frequent ly. but not with a fork, for this makes them bleed. A pancake turner la the ! best thing to use. Pot Roast. Take any kind of meat, put into an ron pot a tables poop ful of meat fry Ings or butter; let it brown: wash off the roast and put It into the pot After it begins to fry pour in enough water to half cover the meat; season with pepper and salt, cover and stew slowly. As the meat begins to fry add more water; turn It often and cook about three hours. A half hour before serving add either Irish or sweet potatoes or turnips and let them brown with the meat. Boiled Vegetable Sandwiches. One who has made a hit in prepar ing lunches for her family has kept her observation clearly at work and the result has been that one of the young ladies, who carries her luncl, has found most welcome little sand wiches spread with cold mashed squash, turnip or even boiled cabbage These especially for a meat combina tlon. as with the double sandwich, will be most desirable as a lunch dainty, to those who like such combinations. Turkey Stuffing. One quart finely sifted bread •rumba, one quart hot mashed pota toes. one medium-sized onion chopped fine. oru tablespoon salt, one teaspoon sage, one teaspoon savory, half tea spoon pepper; moisten with water un till the mixture is quite thin, add one large egg beaten until light and one quarter cup melted butter. Berlin Salad. Cut eight or ten sardines into pieces and put in a salad dish Then put over them a layer of peeled and sliced tommies then a layer of cold, thin sliced cucumbers Garnish with lettuce leaves, and just before serving pour over a sahul dressing Martha Washington Jumbles. Stir to a cream one pound each of butter and sugar, and three well beaten eggs, one pound flour, one wineglass - rose water and one ten spoon lemon extract. Roll out thin, cut with a ring cutter, dust over with granulated sugar and bake. Butter Frosting. Half pound powdered sugar, butter size of ar egg Put sugar and butter together, then beat the white of an egg stiff and add to the sugar and but ter: beat thoroughly. Flavor with vanilla. This will frost two cake*. Dropped Eggs in Cream. Put one-half cup of sweet cream In chafing dish; heat the cr am and break six eggs in cream, one by one Sprinkle e: eh with sr.l and pepper Cook slowly ten tmnutes and serve or toast. [ PROGRESS of the WORLD -A- I SOME THINGS THE BUSY WORKER IS DOING I FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF CIVILIZATION AIM TO BE LEADER Man Capable of Thinking and Planning Is the Man Who Commands Success. LOOK BEYOND THE PRESENT Employment Should Have Definite Fu ture to Be Attractive to Young Man— Think Always of Some Cay Being the Boss. Not long ago two brothers from ru ral Kansas went to Chicago to wiu for tunes. Each started to work on ■ salary o' ,en dollars a week. The old est and best educated got a job in the office of a real estate firm, while the younger man went to work for a con trac ing firm, writes Joseph T. Vogel in Chicago Tribune. At the end of two years tne older brother was getting $25 a week as a real estate salesman, while the ether youth was earning $lB a week as teamsUr for the contractor. During the next six months the younger brother bought a team and wag<->n and started a small business of his own. doing special teaming work, moving household iurniture, hauling lumber, dirt, cordwood, or anything that afforded employment for hioiseif and bis horses. The younger brother remained with the real estate firm as salesman ami looked forward to a future iar superi or to that of his "teamster brother,” as he called him. The young man in the teaming business was his own boss —he worked when he had an opportunity, but he was ail the time working tor himself, solving his own future. After six months he had saved enough money to buy another wagon and team of horses, and then is when his real business started. He fired an assistant, a young man fresh from the farm, who knew all about horses and hard wcik. After paying for the additional help, the extra team brought him an income that was about twenty times what his money would havv earned had it been left in a savings bank at the usual rate of Interest. it was only a short time until more teams and men were put to work, and today he owns one of the largest teaming bjliness establishments in Chicago. His brother, who has not yet acquired the master habit, is still working for the real estate firm, and while his salary has been increased, his In come is only one-tenth that of his teamster brother, who now is his own boss and owns a business that is growing bigger and bigger every year. Watch half a dozen boys at play In the back yard. There is usually one who does the directing, while the oth ers are satisfied to carry out orde r s and do as they are told. This one who docs the directing is developing the master habit, and when anything goes wrong he is usually the one who finds a way out of the difficulty—he learns to think for himself and to think for others. During college life the same thing Is true, but In later life the situation sometimes reverses; this depends en tirely upon the young man In ques tion. The yourg man who was a lead er while still in his teens has a big advantage over the others, and with little difficulty he can become one of the leaders in the particular business establishment he enters. He has partly developed the master habit, and this very fact Is apparently stamped on his face. About twenty years ago a station agent in a small Minnesota town started to sell watches to his friends. At first he did it to make a Hale ex tra money, but he was so successful that after a year or two he resigned his railroad position to devote his en tire time to selling jewelry, first lo cally and then through the malls. This business experience taught him to rely on his own judgment— he became his own master, and. with Increased business, established a mail order house In Chicago. From the first mall order jewelry house the business has grown to one of tbe largest of Its kind in the country. His entire success was due to his initia tive and executive ability—to being able to master, first the small busi ness and later the million collar cor poration of which, until he etlred, he was the active head. Big Opportunities for Boys. It is indeed a young man’s world The youth in this generation has everything to hope for and to strive for The vast industries of today are officered by the boys of twenty years ago. Time is relentless, and the pres ent occupants must move on sooner or later. Then the boys of 1912 who have Improved their chances will take the big prizes of trade and Industry.

To “grow out.” Growing up means steady advancement, while growing out means that he is out of the race for the trophies of business life. There is one important essential which does not directly bear on a young man’s activities within office or shop. He must be absolutely sure to live within his income. No matter how small his salary may be, it is ruinous to start by indulging wants which are outTif reach of his financial condition. Debt is fatal; the saving habit is im portant, and that, too, may be em braced under the heading of senti ment Perhaps the last place to look for sentiment is In American business life, but it is to be found there, and invariably does it figure in the making of the succtssful man—yes. he who is successful by the financial gauge, which generally is applied as the test of true success.

She must endeavor to retain her own individual ity, keep her own convictions of right and wrong and improve upon her own personality, without allowing herself to become a copy of any one else. And yet she must realize that every day she is meeting men and women who have enjoyed greater privileges, perhaps, than she has known, and put herself into a receptive state of mind to learn from them whatever can be of benefit to her in any possible way. Great Wealt Health and the Capacity to Work and Enjoy Outweigh the Possession of Millions That Afford Owner Very Little Satisfaction. Every few days the young men of this land receive a shock as if from a galvanic battery. We can give an idea what this shock is.

The in formation of his unsuspected $60,000,- 000 se-s every reader off on at least a few minutes of silent reflection and seif-searching. “How do I‘differ from him? Why not I? Where’s the weak spot in me?” Till, no doubt, since the American public gets these tingling shocks so often, there ensues a benumbing of the sensibilities, or a chronic bitter ness. under the continuous shower of falling stars. But why not reflect that these meteors are falling, swiftly falling, v. ben we are permitted to catch sight of them? Flashing, trailing their bril liant path across the awful dome of old night, they sink below the horizon. But the horizon mountains remain The earth is still beneath the feet of the observers.

WENT AFTER BUSINESS HOW ONE MAN SUCCEEDED IN IMPROVING HIS TRADE. Showing That It Pays to Work Out an Idea in Which One Has Confidence. When I was an ambitious voung man 1 succeeded, after years of effort, in getting a small share in the busi ness of a general 6tore in a small western city, relates a writer in an ex change. The store was not doing the business I felt it should. Asa matter of fact, I thought there was not suf ficient business in ‘he town to give the store enough to make it p-osper ous. 1 felt that in order to do a r eally good business we must bring in the country trade. The town was sur rounded by a rich farming district ano there was any amount of business there if we could only get it. I suggested this idea, but 1 could never aeon to get the other men in the firm to see it my way, at least not to the extent of doing any active work t> secure this trade. Finally I got (hem to stase me to a horse and buggy and a set of printed matter. I marked out a section of the country as my field and started on a house to house canvass. 1 would go in and meet the farmer and his wife, especial ly his wife if I could. I woifld suggest to her the superior goods and service we could furnish / After getting ac quainted I would leave my literature, among which was a good picture of myself w-ith my name and the sug gestion that, when they came, they call for me. The result was excellent. The farm er c- and their wives seemed to feel rather flattered at being called on in person by a member of the firm Then, when they thought of coming, they knew someone personally in the house and did not feel like strangers. 1 had a good memory for faces and names and was usually able to place them if they did come. This flattered them again. By keeping track of our sales to out of town customers we soon found our business had more than doubled from the section of country in which 1 bad made my can vass. This little campaign was fol lowed up later by a general one, and the business of the store was put on a fooling that has continued ever since and is quite satisfactory to the pres ent owners.

It is ungracious and ungrateful to get sour with envy and covet another man’s goods It is ab surd to measure a man's life "by the abundance of the things he possess eth.’’ Throw it to the winds, this sour cislike of the rich man. Kiss your hand to the two faces in the window that bid you good morning, and go cheerily to your day’s work. Success Likened to Plant. Success is like a rare plant; it must be nurtured and cared for. Any effort to develop it too rapidly is certain to result disastrously. The great trouble with most men Is that they desire to get rich quick and to come into af fluence all at once. But you will find that the majority of the world’s wealthiest and most successful busi ness men accomplished their aims by years of persistent labor and through a development of the instinct of sav ing. Attaining success is much like the making of a huge snowball, it In creases in size as it rolls along. In dustry and patience are two of the most important qualities necessary. There are many temptations to cut across lots to fortune, but the men who do so take long chances Keep ing everlastingly at it, subordinating expenses to income, and saving a cer tain amount every year are three things every ambitious young man should remember. Knov ledge of hu man nature is another valuable busi ness asset. In fact, business is noth ing more nor less than an application of the science of human nature. Every merchant, manufacturer, banker, and men in ail lines of business should constantly study it. Long Controversy, Indeed.

BODY IS BAROMETER Speculations Regarding Effects of Surroundings Upon Man. jierman Profvssor's Paper, Entitled “The Geopsychie Phenomena,” Has Made Great Stir in European Scientific Circles. Berlin. —Prof. W. llellpach, of iarlsruhe. has published the results >f the first all-round inquiry ever tuade into the problem: "How far are :he brain and temperament of man iependent upon natural surround ngs?” His report, entitled "The Geopsyehic Phenomena," has made a great stir in icientlfic circles, owing to the bold heses of the professor, who depicts humanity as a mere vitalized barom | ?ter. which reacts incessantly to the stimulus of external forces, but has little Independent control over its jwn movements. Landscape, says Hellpach, Is of Vn finltely greater importance than cli mate in forming national character. The idea that climate is more import ant is a delusion. "In the United States the fantastic mountain world of the great west will In time create different and much more imaginative race than that which exists in the level east and south. At present America's population is too much in a state of flux to allow of this difference being determined, but the change is going on.” America will thus in the future have two populations of entire i ly different psychical inclinations and characteristics. Professor Hellpach gives a whole series of facts to show man in his capacity as barometer. His activities depend upon weather fluctuations 'ini Prof. W. Hellpach. There live peculiarly sensitive “Wet termenschen" (weather men), whose whole nervous system is affected by thunderstorms. Oil these tea. coffee and tobacco, taken during a thunder storm, act with extraordinary force and the most moderate dose of alco hoi. which in clear weather would have no effect, produces violent agita tion, and even temporary paralysis. A second type of weather man is the "snow man.” well known to nerve specialists. Shortly before a snowfall their eating, feeding and sleeping are entirely deranged; and they are thus able to predict a snowfall more surely than can a meteorologist with all his instruments. "Snow men” are rarer than “thunder-storm men.” Both quickly recover from the weather ef fects. and even feel better than they did before. In addition to weather, man reacts to an enormous number of external stimuli, some of which are far off, in - tangible and even concealed from the senses. Light has precisely the same attractive effect on men as it has on insects. The word “moonstruck" is not a figure of speech, but a reality. Moonlight has a marked effect upon sleepers, and is the main cause of somnambulism. The changes of the moon produce precise organic effects upon certain low-er animals, and man is also liable to be moonstruck. Water, though, at a distance and in vis'ble. affects the nervous system and makes some men conscious of Its ef fects. Hence the “divining-rod” Is a reality. The underground water real ly does cause nervous tw-itchings of the water-seeker's hands, and this sets the rod oscilalting. In the same way diviners of hidden coal, ore and other mineral treasures are quite honest. “It is established that there exist sensi tive men. whose psychical condition is affected by the composition of the soil underneath, though of this com position they have no knowledge.’’ And even astrology has a basis of truth. The changes of the earth in Its relation to the constellations In volve changes of gravitation “which causes nervous disturbances and thus operate on the brain.” In a scientific sense no man is therefore independent of the stars and planets.

AKED EQUAL TO SITUATION Example of the Soft Answer That Turneth Away Wrath —Also the Truth. One jf Dr. Akeds most ardent sup porters when that divine was pastor of Mr. John D. Rockefeller's church is fond of telling what he considers a striking example of Dr. Aked's wit. Dr. Aked was fond of taking long country walks, anu one day, being far in the country and wandering through a field, he and his friend noticed a sign nailed to a tree. "No trespassing here.” Hurrying to get out of the forbidden ground they met a farmer who assailed them grimly with the remark; "Trespassers in this field are prose culed.” Dr. Akett smiled at the irate farmer. “But we are not trespassers, my good man,” said he. “What be you then?” demanded the farmer. “We are Presbyterians, my dear sir,” replied Dr. Aked and walked away. CHILD’S HEAD A MASS OF HUMOH “I think the Cutlcura remedies are the best remedies for eczema I have ever heard of. My mother had a child who had a rash on its head w-hen it was real young. Doctor called it baby rash. He gave us medicine, but it did no good. In a few days the head was a solid mass, a running sore. It was awful; the child cried continually. We had to hold him and watch him to keep him from scratching tho sore. His suffering was dreadful. At last we remembered Cuticura Remedies. We got a dollar bottle of Cutlcura Re solvent, a box of Cuticura Ointment, and a bar of Cuticura Soap. We gave the Resolvent as directed, washed the head with the Cutlcura Soap, and ap plied the Cuticura Ointment. We had not used half before the child’s head was clear and free from eczema, and it has never come hack again, llis head was healthy and he had a beau tiful head of hair. I think the Cuti cura Ointment very good for the hair. It makes the hair grow and prevents falling hair.” (Signed) Mrs. Francis Lund, Plain City, Utah, Sept. 19, 1910. Although Cuticura Soap and Oint ment are sold everywhere, a sample of each, with 32-page hook, will be mailed free on application to "Cuti cura,’’ Dept. L, Boston.

"After wards, on making inquiry as to wha! kind of animal it was and the name of it, he was told that it was a polecat. After he had changed his clothes he sat down and wrote to his family back in England as follows; “ 'I have been out looking over the country today, and in traveling about 1 met with an American cat, a beautiful little creature, but I think it had the most offensive breath, don’t you know, of any animal I ever saw in my life.’” —Kansas City Journal.
