ONLY SURE ROAD TO SUCCESS
Fair Amount of Talent and Untiring Application Will Win in the End. Some self-conceited philosopher hus said that genius is nothing but uu in finite capacity for untiring application. It would seem that this attempt to di line genius would apply more appro priateiy to tulent. Jt is also an ob vious fact that many people, thought ful otherwise, use language loosely We would think the remark qu«*fe<l about u case in point. There is no doubt that talent, fo make itself effective, requires untiring effort and unlimited application. Given talent, and application, success Is sun to follow in any man’s career. Many . of us are very much inclined to find fault with society, and lay all our fail ure to succeed at its door. Society is not a concrete fact. It is simply an r abstraction invented to represent hu manity in the aggregate. Nuture has been very niggardly in her gifts to many of us. and where this is so no amount of effort, no matter how con tinuously it is applied, can lead to large success. Those who And fault with society as the cause of their failure are wrong. Given a fnlr amount of talent —that Is brains—and untiring applica tion. and success will be achieved 99 times out of every 100. This may be proved by reference to any walk in life to which human beings apply them selves to reach success. New School for Barbers. “Wow!” howled the victim in the chair. “Be careful with that razor, barber; you Just carved a horsesh«»e in my chin.” “I beg pardon, sir." said the tonsorlul artist, "but—er —you see 1 used to work In a china dish factory." “But whut has that to do with the barber stunt?” asked the victim. “Why.” explained the knight of the razor, “thut's where I learned to dec orate mugs.” Somewhat Personal. Frances, uged three, was very naughty all day, doing everything she should not do. Her mother shook her by the arm and said; "ll seems the devil’s got a hold of you today.” Wig gling to get loose she promptly an swered: “Let go, then." • Would Stagger Them Most. It is a popular diversion to tulk about how dumfounded our grandfa thers would be by our telephones and motor cars and so on, but apparently no one dures imagine what they would think of the bills. Play's Depreciation. I always allow for a depreciation of 60 per cent of a play’s face value on production—2s per cent Is lost through* my own incompetence, and the other 25 per cent through the disabilities of the players.—Pinero. Daily Thought. Spirituality is not an attainment, an acquisition of the nuture; It Is a qual ity of the nuture. It Is not a thing to be; It is u way of being everything.— Phillips Brooks. Poet Had Right Idea. Matthew Arnold, discussing the pop ularity of his own dog poems, said that while comparatively few loved poetry, nearly everyone loved dogs. And Mat thew AruoM was right. Brutal. A Chicago mau complains he can not support his wife on S2O a week when she buys perfume at $5 a bottle and stockings at s**. a pair. The brute. —Peoria Transcript. Pretty Thin. “I was whipped by six men." whim pered a man today. “Had there been only five I would have ’cleaned’ them.” That kind of talk is pretty thin.— Atchison Globe. Easy Publicity. First Actor— " Who is his ’publicity man?* " Second Actor —“He relies al most entirely upon cycle cops and cred itors." —Puck. Find Milk Good Lubricant. Milk has been found to be a better cutting lubricant than oil in a Chicago g.-ar factory that is manufacturing blind nuts out of a soft muchlne steel. Contemporary. "Miss Ann Teek has hud her house furnished in colonial style." “Well, she ought to feel thoroughly at home umld such surroundings." Very True. "Dar’s a heap o’ things I don’t un derstand.” said Uncle Eben; "an’ a beftp o’ folks tryln* to spluln ’em dat understand ’em neither." Optimistic Thought. H |« not the eye for faults, but beau ties that constitutes the real critic.
