No fixed standard therefor prevails among mortals; no exact classification can be made for either success or failure. Many people be lieve that if they Ret what they want, good or ill, they are succeeding. Others see beneath the surface enough to discern some form of success in spite ( ,f outward failure—through a lesson learned, a pitfall detected, a moral I gaiaed. Between these extremes of pi-rso-JKI selfishness and ethical in sight lie™ a world of mixed beliefs upon the subject, each mortal deciding for himself, according to his training, his habits, associations and Ideals, what may be for him success or fail ure. And in the course of experience this individual point of view becomes so freanently blurred or warped that it is really no light task to distin guish between the two. Failure may in the end compel success; gaining a desired end may Involve unforeseen disaster. And so mortals are after all somewhat helpless to determine for themselves what may or may not mean failure, and their endeavors to classify experience are largely subject to ignorance and confusion concerning what is really and finally right for them. "NO OTHER GOD" One unchanging standard for success has been given to the world in Christ Jesus' admonition, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven la perfect." The way to suc ceed in being perfect was announced by Moses centuries before In God's com mand, "Thou Bhalt have no other goda before me." And the footsteps to be taken along this way to perfection are defined with exactness centuries later when Mrs. Eddy writes upon page 467 of her book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures": "Therefore the command means this: Thou shalt have no intelligence, no life, no substance, no truth, no love, but that which is spirit ual." To succeed In doing what God would have you do; to be what God would have you be; to move toward thi3 ultimate perfection In God's way; thjs constitutes bucccss, according to the teaching of the Master-Christian. Since the days which saw the book of Exodus written, down to the present hour, aspiring thought has reached to ward this goal. And now Christian Science shows with such complete analysis what it means to discard all belief In an intelligence, a life, a sub stance, a truth and a love other than the spiritual, and thereby to have but one God, that great hope of a growing success in right thinking and right do- Ing is animating its students and en couraging them to renewed trying each day. "Tins O>XY MrND" If your one Idea about success is that righteousness only really succeeds, you are growing out of failure and nothing but your own compromise with lesser standards can check your growth. Christian Science makes it clear that God, the one infinite everywhere pres ent Intelligence, la the only Mind that FOLLOW BRYAN'S APPEAL; INDORSE COUNTY OPTION LINCOLN, Neb., July 9.—Following an appeal by William .1. Bryan, the Democratic county committee this afternoon Indorsed county option find instructed Lancaster county's fifty neven delegates to tho state convention to vote as a unit fur a plunk favor ing county option In the state plat form. Two delegates declined to ac cept places on the delegation thus in structed. TRAINMEN GET RAISE LAFAYETTE, Ind., July 9.—Monon railroad trainmen are rejoicing over an Increase in wages which wa ian nounced today at the general head quarters here. The Increase, It la an nounced, became effective April 1. Is right and true/ and that endures eternally. Anything evil is untrue and passing, and has no place In this great good Mind which Is God. Then, as you express by faithful reflection, divine qualities in your own thinking, you are not thinking humanly nor of yourself, but In accord with divine law and In obedience to the command for perfec tion. This, Christian Science teaches, is success; and anything diverging from this Is failure. Out of spiritual ized thinking comes all that is gTeat and good, to help the world. And the failure to be and to do right Is the only failure there la Such a sum mary as this Christian Science gives you, and when once the lesson comes home to you no superficial sense of success and failure ever again satisfies you. Christian Science lays bare the untruth of worldly, popular and selfish successes. It lifts the condemnation from him whom the world, perhaps, calls a failure. It changes entirely the human standards of success and de clares that he who accomplishes the correction of himself and grows In help fulness to his fellows, Is truly succeed ing in all tha* Is worth while. mix IT PLEASE GOD? Ask yourself, when question arises,, whether what you are thinking or what you are about to do will please God or whether It will please men. In many Instances the thing will hardly do both. If those about you are most pleased when you are steadfast In your adher ance to the divine Mind your consistent behavior Is then their Joy. If, however, they prefer mistaken success In ways material, your determination to please God may seem to them failure. But pleasing God means In the end blessing to all, whether it pleases or displeases yourself or others at the moment. To be sure, going out of your way to make happy your fellow men is often pleas ing God in the ways of sacrifice which brings you nearest to Him. But this is very different from merely aiming to please people and means success In right living where the compromise for passing favor of a friend often means loss and disaster. Nothing less than Increasing understanding of God, cou pled with the helpfulness resulting from such understanding, is success. The possibility of success opened to you by Christian Science is, you find, based upon its teaching that evil Is not power. And as you set about proving evil powerless through your better un derstanding of God's all-power you see that temptations lessen, sickness is healed, and errors within and without begin to disappear from your experi ence. Spiritual growth gained from seeming failure prevents the recurrence of such failure. Any lesson which teaches you that God is supreme and proves to you how His supremacy cares for you Is counteracting failure. So Christian Science helps us all to prove true the apostolic utterance: "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God." And It strengthens us for the moral collisions with popular demands and for the spiritual victories over ma perial condition which mean truly the only actual success. Christian Science Monitor.

It read, In part, as follows: "Whereas, It Is believed that the va rious organizations, clubs and societies of the city, formed and existing for the Interests of the community and the up lifting and betterment of the individ ual members therein, should lead In an open and active support of the plant; therefore, be It "Resolved, that the board of trade.

Speakers of the evening laid special stress upon the Importance of women becoming Interested In the campaign.

CITY BOUNDARY LINE IS REFUGE OF AUCTIONEER Outwits Santa Monica Police Who Try to Prevent the Sale OCEAN PARK, July 9.—George Keoler, an auctioneer, took advantage j of protection afforded him by the loca- I tion of the boundary line between Santa Monica and Ocean Park and thereby outwitted the police of the neighboring city In carrying on his business here. Standing at one end of a room through which the line runs he cried out his sales in Ocean Park while his audience remained on the north Bide of tne line and bought his goods In Santa Monica. An attempt on the part of the Santa Monica police to compel Keeler to quit business or take out a license in that city proved fruitless, as Keeler showed them to their absolute satisfaction that he had the law behind him. The happy location' of the municipal line was a financial aid to Keeler. The license for auctioneers in Santa Mon ica Is $300 a year. In this city it is $60 a year. Keeler found a vacant room in tho postoffice block on Marine street. The front of the building is in Santa Monica. The rear is In Ocean Park. How much of th« room Is in each city was ascertained'by the auc tioneer, who employed a surveyor to mark the exact line on the floor. This chalk line, inadvertently of course, was covered by a rug. It Is eleven feet from the rear of the building. The sale was announced, a' crowd came and listened curiously to Keeler shouting his wares and bids in Ocean Park. "Two bits I am offered. Who'll make it 50 cents? Once, twice, three tlmei and sold to the lady in white," said Keeler, and just at this moment Ser geant Fred Calkins of the Santa Mon ica police strode In and over to tho end of the room where Keeler was standing. He askel to see the latter's license and it was exhibited, but the sergeant pronounced It invalid. He told Keeler to take out another license In Santa Monica or close up his sale. "Are you an officer of this city?" asked Keeler. "Yes, I am sergeant of police," re plied Calkins. Then Keeler escorted Calkins to the "dead line" and Informed the officer that he was on the wrong side of the fence and that the auction was not conducted In Santa Monica. "I have half a notion to have you arrested for Impersonating an officer of Ocean Park," was Keeler"s parting shot as Calkins left the room amid the laughter of the audience. POLICE INVESTIGATE A MYSTERIOUS FIFE Circumstances Connected with Apartment House Blaze Cause Inquiry OCEAN PARK, July 9.—Mysterious features in connection with a fire that occurred in the Drexel apartments have caused the police to begin an in vestigation in the hope of ascertaining the origin of the fire.

The girl is a child of 15 years and la still In short dresses. She is the daugh ter of a well known family residing at Urblta, on the outskirts of San Bernardino. Thsit the child has been the victim of other girls of more mature years and possibly youths Is the belief of th« local officers.
