Americans who have been going over the border into uebee and either con suming or carting away large quantities of liquor will not have such a good time from now on. Hereafter the Quebec li quor commission will sell liquor to Amer ican visitors to the province only if the American government permits the sale.

TANGING In the offices of one of the best' known businessmen In this country5, Is"; this motto: , "You cannot :getout of a'man what ":, God Almighty" did not put . into him. You must suit the man "to the job; not the job to the man." . Perhaps there is & simpler and.. more direct way of putting Jt than that. Perhaps you. can tlo it better. If you can, there is a job waiting for you in the office ofthe man who first wrote it because he is a man always, on the hunt for writers who can say things with a punch. There are a good many young men who try to succeed In lines for which they are not at all fitted. Ambitious parents often insist upon mapping out the life work of their children when they would do a much more kindly thing to let the boys and girls follow their own Inclination. A tree that is bent Is never so good as a tree that grows according to na ture. Thousands of excellent carpenters have boon spoiled In the making of poor doctors and the world Is worse off for the experiments. Almost every child shows an In clination toward some special thing. It enjoys work of a particular kind when other efforts are drudgery. The wise parent will seek to find out what that inclination Is and offer every aid to the highest endeavor. A child's mind Is not essentially different from the mind of a grown r.p. Both offer resistance to doing what Is unpleasant and Irksome. More than that Individualities are just as distinct and different each from the other as one kind of matter (HCers from another. They have different uses and differ ent applications. , To attempt to drive aj nail with a sponge would be just as -fruitless, if not as destructive, as to try to wash, a window with a hammer. To try to make a boy who loves me- uiics and wants to study machin ery into a professor of Greek is to misapply his talents and diminish his efficiency. Every child should be studied. There is no greater and no more interesting process in the world than the development of the human mind. The baby with his fist in his eye Is the seed of the man that is to be. ' Put it in the wrong soil, give It too much or too little mental food and water and the final product will be distorted and twisted. Put it in the right surroundings?, give it ns far ns is proper Its way ami it will grow into a strong and sturdy plant; a source of joy to itself and you. Don't plan too much for your chil dren. Let them have a little of their own way in following their inclinations as to what they shall be and do. Remember that you cannot get out of a boy or a man what God Almighty did not put into him.
