A private letter from n Massachusetts lenntor In Washington says Unit immediately nftet Uio Christmas ivcoss a report in favor of General Wood's prorr.otlcn will bo submitted to the senat '.

Secretary of the Treasury Shaw, in n recent address to students, admira bly epitomized nn Important secret to siiccohw: "If you take ni) advlco," iw said. you villi never work for hlro. If you work Tor hire you will never rlso. If you work lor hlro life will hnvo llttlo elso tor you but drudgery, and eight hours tier day ten hours a day at the most is all that you can stand and keep your health. Hut If you work fov tho accomplish ment of tho thing you aro employed to do, you can work slxteeu or eigh teen hours a day and llfo will bo full of sunshine and song, (lod Implanted In the human mind Uio desire to do things." In other words, real success lies not so much In what wo can gel out of our work as In what wo can put Into It. If wo lovo our work wo have taken a long stride not only towards happi ness lint townrd accomplishment that is worth while. Tho mnn who gets no more out of his work than moro supiwrt, though ho may bo Innbled to live In most lav ish stile, Is uo more than an animal. The hog works only for a living, Hid that is all ho koU or cares for. Hut man. with his emotions, sensibili ties anil asImtlous, requires more. With man work Is not merely a means but an end. Ho must work thnt he may live, but he also lives that ho may work. It Is a melancholy fact that millions of men nro forced to dovoto nearly all of their lives to sustaining life It Hivnm a slavery Yet the drudgery Is due, not t.- the Incessant work, but to tho dlsllko of It.
