Only the heartless are hopeless. There is no short cut to happiness. When love labors it needs no fore man. Too many men reckon time by pay days. A little silence may save a lot of sorrow. Repentance cannot tear up the roots of the past. There is no joy gained except where joy Is given. The opportunity is always ripe for the man who is roady. Judge a man's success by the meth--ds he used in succeeding. A man's success depends on what he does with his failures. No man reaches the stage of tri umph but by the steps of trial. Extravagant speeches are often very economical with the truth. It would he lovely if others esti mated us ae we estimate ourselves. Nobody makes any particular prog ress by patting himself on tho back. A man often thinks the fellow who does not ngree with him a fool. Lon don Answers. DAILY THOUGHTS. Monday.
