Will to Work
Through all my achool day*, write*

can’t do It,” U got the familiar answer,
"Where theie’s a will there's a way.”
last week 1 got It again, this time from
P keen-eyed, earnest clergyman, the
esd of one of our large city missions.
He read behind my apathy the de
spondency of failure, and when I rose
with a dull "Thank you,” to his re
|ply that there was no position open
'to me. he said abruptly: “Sit down."
[Then he told me story after story of
men, today known and respected In the
business world, who were once “down
and out." This was the last; I will
tell It in his words:
■ “A man went to see a friend of mine,
also a clergyman. He wttated a Job.
ifie was pretty seedy—his shoes were
shabby, his collar soiled, his suit un
pressed.
“ There’s no use trying, anyway,’
he declared with a twisted smile. ‘The
whole rotten world's nm by graft. “To
jeveryone that hath shall be given”—
you know the rest —"but from him that
hath not." Well, there’s always the
river.'
“The clergyman said nothing, bat
looked steadily at the apenker. The
man squirmed, fumbled with hla hat,
gazed at the floor, at the pictures, at
the window—anywhere except Into th
other man's eyea. He knew he had
whined like a coward.
“ 'My man,' aald the minister finally,
‘yoti'rc down on yonr luck. Yon feel
that your life la futile, that nobody
needs you. What you need la work,
not money. You've loafed; you've ac
quired the habit of loafing and kick*
lug. Now, If I give you something
to !o. will you do It? No matter hoei
sir,;; It may seem, will you do’ ItT*
'■ 'Yc-ea,' came the hesitating a*
swer.
“‘Ooodl Take that brick,* and In
pointed to one lying loose In the fire
place, 'nnd carry It all around Madison
square; then come back.*
"The man felt foolish ns he picked
up the brick. He felt more foolish
when the elevator hoy snickered; hut
he remembered that In his school days
he had never refused a challenge, and
he vowed he would sec It through.
Solemnly he crossed the park and
paced round the square, carrying
burden past grinning onlookers with
as much solicitude as If It had been
of gold Instead of common red clay.
When he returned his shoulders were
stralghter. He looked pleased with
himself, though somewhat sheepish,
"'Hello, so you’ve done It I Wall,
don’t you feel better?’
“He did —undeniably. He had not
one rent more In his pocket, but he had
forgotten that he was hungry In con
centrating upon the brick.
“All right ; nun here Is another Job,
Take these two dollars, go to a first
class coffee merchant's, buy all you
can of their best grade of coffee, ask
them for some small bags and string!,
nnd do It up Into quarter-pound pack
ages. On up to Park avenue, ring tha
basement doorbell of each house and
say to the servant who comes to tha
door:
" 'Madam, I am Introducing a very
excellent brand of coffee. This Is a
sample package of a quarter of ■
pound. I should not sell It If 1 wart
' not convinced that It Is something yon
will be glad to try. If you do not Ilka
It I should never try to sell It to you
again'. Charge enough to make two
cents on each sale. Then go back and
bny some more.'" >
The narrator stopped and smiled
quizzically. "I don't know the rest of
♦he story. I like to think the man
made good; I like to think that ois
n prosperous salesman of high grade
coffees and tens today. But that's not
the point. Yon are a writer and y t
want a Job. Here Is a story for yon.
Use It or not, as you choose. I think
you, too, can make good. Good-day r

MEMORIAL IS LONG DELAYED
Shaft In Honor of Fronch Chevallar
■ reeled 139 Year* After Provlalon
Was Made for It
The memorial shaft In front of
King's chapel, Poston, has a history of
special Interest, says the Youth's Com
panion. It was erected In memory of
the Chevalier de Sulnt-Sauveur, who Is
hurled In the crypt of the chapel, but
It was not put up until 139 years after
the general court of Massachusetts
had passed the resolution providing for
It. The Chevalier de Snlut-Sauveur
was an officer In the French fleet that,
under command of Count d'Estalng,
arrived In Boston harbor In August,
1778. One evening when he wns ashore
he waa killed In a riot that took place
near a bakery established to provide
bread for tho sailors of the fleet.
The local authorities were much
alarmed lest his death should cause
bad feeling at n time when the friend
ship and aid of France were much de
sired. After his burial beneath King's
chnpel, the general court voted to erect
a monument to his memory. An In
scription wns prepared and a commit
tee wns named to attend to the matter
of ordering the stone. For some rea
son the committee neglected to do Its
duty—lt will be recalled that the war
of Independence wns nt Its height— l
and a century and a quarter passed
before students of history brought th*
matter before the general court. At
last, In 1916, through the efforts of the
Bostonian society, the general court
made the necessary appropriation and
In due time the monument was made
and put In place. The monument hear*
the French Inscription prepared In
1778, which recites In detail the story
of the yoqng officer's death.
HERON IS EXPERT FISHERMAN
Great Bird Impresses Watcher by
Great Skill With Which He Uie*
Hia Long bill In Water.
There Is nothing of more Interest
than following a Stream, either by boat
or on toot, and not the least among
the surprises coming to you—always
welcome surprises—ls the starting of
a great blue heron far ahead, the giant
bird being Interrupted while fishing In
some shallow water where the min
nows and tnddles congregate.
The herons all, and the great blues
particularly, are expert fishermen;
not, of course, with rod and line, hut
as glggcrs, the Implement being the
natural one of their long bills. It you
can make a long and successful sneak
ahead and spot one of these birds
through your field glass, or even with
sharp. Inng-dlstnnce eyes, the slender
creature standing like a statue and
quite ns motionless for many minutes
at a time or stalking slowly along,
rarely more than half-leg deep In the
water, to anew spot, and then see him
by a downward stroke of his long neck
and bill which hardly ever mlsse*
make a crack at a finny titbit, you
will be Impressed also with his skill,
Effective Weapon of Anelenta,
Among the simplest and yet one of
the most effective Inventions of an
cient times wns the javelin with a
point of soft Iron employed by Julius
Caesar In his Gallic wars. The Ro
man legionaries hurled these weapons
against the shields of their enemies.
The Iron head penetrated tho outer
covering of bulls’ hide, but flattened
against the hard wood or metal back
of the shield, and thus boonme hooked
to this protector. Tim shanks of the
dangling javelins so Impeded the move
ment of the barbarian soldiers that
they were forced ciilier to throw rwny
their shields and (Hit uncovered
against the Roman nr else s*np long

Colonics Loyal to France.
J 'though S’. Lucia is under the Brit

pore i .cadi or an almost unintelligible
p .tois. in this Bt. Lucia Is only one
x .pie of a phenomenon that the
traveler meets all over the world the
tenacious spiritual hold of France upon
nil her ancient colonics. France lost
by fur the greater part of her empire
through military weakness, and even
that part which she holds todav she
does not govern with any conspicuous
efficiency. Either England or the
vnltqd States administer colonies In a
way far better for all concerned. But
while the old French colonies change
flags, they always remain loyal to the
trench tradition In language and In
sympathies. There are a dozen In
stances of thl* In th* West Indies, The
