I often interview business men of national prominence who cannot at all explain why they succeeded. Vet when I start them off on a de scription of their career, step by step, from boyhood on, usually It is very easy for me to see exactly what led to their rise. Tli" other evening the recently electd president of one of America's very largest industrial enterprises told me the story of his life. He thus covered the whole period of his youth : "After attending: the local schools, 1 graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology." That wasn't particularly Illuminat ing, so I started delving a bit. "Were you particularly interested in any one thing whiie at school?" I ashed. " o, well nothing except that I rigged up a machineshop or laboratory at homo and built mechanical things, including a motor which worked allunueual injtiatjVe that his rise to a right. I had to get some of the cast ings made. The president of a local company, a friend of my father, had this done." Then he added, as an after-thought "It was rather queer, wasn't "it, that this same man gave me my first job?" "There!" I exclaimed. "That ex plains a whole lot everything. Right there was a turning 'point in your life." "I never thought of it that- way. How do you mean?" he asked. "Why," I exlained, "that man gave you a Job because you had done something something out of the or dinary which made an impression on him, a sufficient impression to make him willing to put you on his payroll by and by. He saw in you a doer. You created your own influence and the onry influence worth while always is the influence w ourselves create. V,y cross-examining him like a rhiladelphia lawyer, wormed out of him what preceded every important promotion in hfs career. And there was a specific, clear-cut, abundantly sufficient cause each time. For example, he was transferred from the dirtiest kind of work in the ! shop to the office because the rather i humble part he played in taking the ; inventory of his department attracted : the notice of his superiors, so much ! more carefully and systematically j a nd businesslike was it done than the work done by any or tiie otners. Later, be made his mark by pre senting figures to tlio head of the company showing that they had on hand only SO per cent of stock of the goods which accounted for SO per cent of their sales and 0 per cent of stock covering- goods which ac counted for only 20 per cent of the sabs. That convinced the president that this young man was of executive cal ilre. When he reached the selling end of jthe business his fundamental, expert, technical knowledge ot uie requue ments of customers enabled him to win contract after contract. And. of course, recognition came In the form I .f promotion to : reeling all sales. the position of di- Now, this man's career is merely ' onu of hundreds of illustrations I i have received of men climbing to the i summits of success by step after step ' whicl were bound to lead them to the top.

The call is for men capable of either hurdling or battling down obstacles. Employers rivet to themselves fellows who ex- men who It was the initiative John D. Rock efeller exerted when a humble pro duce dealer that resulted in his ac quiring enough capital to enable him to get into the oil business. It was the chemical and other ex periments conducted in his very hum ble home when very young that led to Schwab's being introduced to Car negie as a young roan who knew more about the steel business than anyone else in the organization. It was the resourcefulness displayed and the success attained by Frank A. Vanderlip in floating the Spanish American War loan, when he was as sistant secretary of the treasury that led James Stillman to grab him as a vice-president for the National City 3ank of New York at ?10,000 a year. The extraordinary ability manifest ed by Lawyer Elbert II. CJary in giv ing legal advice to steel interests led to Gary's becoming the kingpin of the steel industry of the whole country. At each stage of his career Henry P. rvisnn hrnuirht into play such dominating partnership in the house of Morgan & Company was not mere ly logical but almost inevitable. Yes, for everything in life there's a reason, even though the reason can not always be unearthed. 1 must say, however, that at least nine oue of every ten men who have risen to positions of conspicuous im portance in this country rose because they deserved to, because they laid solid foundations, because they fitted themselves to climb. s the world grows .

I UMJ the determination, me stamina to transform tneir innuu.t and originality into achievement. Don't remain content to be a med iocrity. , Strive to become a real doer. (Copyright, 122. by B. C.

Escaped Convict Is Being Held In Chattanooga Sheriff Ellis received a telegram from Chief Dective Hackett ot Chat tanooga yesterday advising him that Howard Hammac, who escaped from the Escambia road camp several weeks ago. had been arrested at Chat tanooga. Hammac, it was stated, is ready to come back to Florida with- out requisition papers. Hammac was sent up for six months when convicted in the court of rec ord on a charge " of larceny. He stole a suit case belonging to J. S. Reese while it was at the L. & N. depot. Robert Forrest, local member of the bureau of fingerprint Identification, took the prisoner's prints when he was sent out to the camp and it was by these that he was detected at Chattanooga. The sheriff will go before the coun ty commission today to ascertain whether or not Hammac is wanted badly enough to go to the expense of sending an officer after him.

FINE RECORD IS MADE AT BRUCE DOCKS Big British Steamer Is Raised in Rec ord Time of 32 Minutes. What is declared to be one of the best docking records on the gulf coast was established yesterday aft ernoon when the British steamer BIythmoor was raised at the Bruce Dry Dock company's plant. This vessel, with a carrying ca pacity of 12,700 tons and with 9S0 tons of water ballast and 150 tons of coal in her hold was pumped up in 02 minutes. The BIythmoor is 430 feet over all, has a 54 foot beam and stands 51 feet over the keel block. She is the largest vessel that has ever been raised at the Bruce dock, and the second British steamar raised since the dock was put into opera tion. While moored in the harbor of Iquiaue, Chile, after she had been loaded with approximately 10,000 tons of nitrates and ready to go to sea, the BIythmoor was accidentally rammed by the steamer Plier Blanche. Ca'p tain Stonehouse succeeded in making temporary repairs and the BIythmoor proceeded to Pensacola where the cargo was discharged. After comparing the excellent re pairing facilities of the local plant and the tariff and workmanship with other gulf coast docks, Captain Stone house decided that Pensacola was the most logical point to have his vessel docked and repaired. She is to have the damage done in the accident repaired and scraped and painted. This will furnish employ ment to about 12j local workmen this morning at 7 o'clock. The BIythmoor will be lowered Fri- May morning, and the steamer Jomar will be docked for scraping, painting and repairs to the bilge keel. Her solid cast iron wheel will be removed and replaced with a built-up wheel consisting of a cast iron hub and four bronze propeller blades. All this work will be done in 24 hours. Following the Jomar the dredge Caucus will be docked for completion of repairs started at a previous dock ing. KIWANIS CUP AWARDED. XASHVILLK, Tenn.. Dec. 13. Right Rev.

Dick was the member of the Junior Chamber of Commerce who started out the third dollar of the week yesterday under the auspices of the junior commercial body to ascertain how much $1 will buy in Pensacola. He let the simoleon go by spend ing it at White & White's, and when 5 o'clock rolled araund yes terday afternoon Dick stood at his telephone ready to have someone call him and let him chase out to retrieve the bill. But no call came. He waited until 6, but till no call came. He then called up The Journal and In disgust de clared that he didn't know what became of his dollar.

That means that it's gone for good so far as Pensacola is concerned." D wight Coons, phone 2351, starts the fourth dollar out this morn ing. How much will it buy before 5 o'clock?
