"1 would say. first," he says, "a young man should carefully consider 1 what, his natural bent or inclination is, be it for business or a profession take stock of himself and ascertain if possible what he is best adapted for and endeavor to get into that voca tion with as few changes as possible. '"Having entered upon it then let him pursue the work in hand with diligence and determination to know it thoroughly, which can only be done by close and enthusiastic application of the powers at his command strive to master the details and put into it an energy directed by strong common sense, so as to make his services of value wherever he is. "The trouble with most young men is that they do not learn any thing thoroughly and arc apt to do the work committed to them in a careless manner. Forgetting that what is worth doing at all is worth doing well, they become mere drones and rely upon chance to bring them success. "The business world is full of just such young men, content in simply putting in their time somehow and drawing their salaries, making no ef fort whatever to increase their effi ciency and thereby enhance their own as well as their employers' inter est. "There are others who want to do what they are not fitted for and waste their lives in what may be tailed mis fit occupations. Far better be a good carpenter or mechanic of any kind than a poor business or professional man. "Next to the selection of occupa tion is that of companions. Particu larly is this important in the case of young men beginning their career in strange eitics. away from home in lluenccs, as too often is it the easo that young men of excellent abilities are ruined by evil associations. A young man, therefore, cannot too early guard against fonning friend ships with tho-e whose ti'Ddcnry is to lead him on tin downward path. "To every young man 1 would say: A purposes, as 1 regard the building up at the animals as they ate, or rested, of a sterling character one of the fundamental principles of true suc cess.

"I would not have them believe, however, that success consists solely in the acquisition of wealth. Far from it, as that idea is much too prev alent already. The haste to become rich at the expense of character pre vails to an alarming extent and can not be too severely denounced. "What is needed to-day more than anything else is to instill in the minds of our young the desire above all to build up a character that will win. the respect 'of all with whom they may come in contact and which is vastly more important than a great fortune. "In answer to your second ques tion, 'What, in your observation, have been the chief causes of the numer ous failures in business life?' I would say if the elements herein outlined promote success the logical conclu sion would be that a disregard of them forebodes failure. The man who is characterized by want of fore thought, idleness, carelessness or general shiftlessness cannot expect to 6ucceed. "There are other causes, however, such as extravagance in living or liv- LUDICROUS SITUATION. Real Estate Agent and Lady on In voluntary Exhibition. "The fad for nature stories, espe cially entertaining sketches of ani mal and plant life, is interesting in more ways than one,"' observed arnan who had been playing golf for over an hour with his- usual ardor from an easy chair on the club porch, accord ing to the Washington Star. "I should imagine it was extremely interesting," said his companion, who had got as far on with his game of golf as to have his flannels on, "espe cially to the lucky dog whose book had happened to strike the popular fancy." "That is one view of it/' was the response, "even if it is limited to a very few ind ividuals. What gave rise to this train of thought was a recent visit I made to the Zoo. As I passed along in front of the cages with the rest of the curious visitors and gazed or were trying to get some exercise I wondered what they thought of the animals that were on the outside of the bars of their cages. Now that we are taught, in spite of the protest of John Burroughs, that animals have a wide range of sensibilities and minds, capable of reason, it, of course, follows that they are not in sensible of their situation in being on public exhibition. "Human beings, unless they are of passions, tongue and temper, to be the "dime museum variety,do not care their master and not their slave—in a word, absolute self-control—is also of first importance. "'Economy is one of the most es sential elements of success, yet most wretchedly disregarded. The old adage 'Willful waste makes woeful for that'sort of publicity.

Separator is the better skimmer, lias'tried various schemes to prop up his trembling frame and waning popularity. He used to try the Churmibility'' bluff, but this prop was knocked out long ago then he howled about flushing the bowl with hot water, but the U. S. corrugated cups quieted him on that and lately it has been the "cold skimming dodge, whenever he has run up against the U. S., but alas this also has been knocked from under him, so that now about all the prop he has to lean on is that of bluff." That readers may fully realize how little ground there is for advocating cold skimming, we give below a portion of an article that appeared in the June i8th issue of The Kansas Farmery headed Abuse of a Hand Separator," by Prof. Edw. II. Webster, formerly of the Kansas Agricultural College and now one of the Government Dairy Inspectors: Other abuses were in time met with in the tendency of agents to follow methods that would be condemned any where else. One of the principles of separation understood by all creamerymen, is that the warmer the milk the more complete the separation. Yet agents will run cold milk through just to beat the other fellow. This is wrong for various reasons: In the first place the milk should be skimmed when warm in order to get the best separation of the cream. It should be skimmed when warm in order t.j give the calves and pigs the warm skimmilk, and It should be skimmed fresh from the cow in order that the cream may be quickly cooled to prevent the development of bacteria. Everything is against cold skimming and in favor of •warm skimming, and the tendency of these contests is to give farmers erroneous ideas in regard to the hand separator.'' What ^irthcr evidence is necessary to convince you that the DeLaval has to depend on other things than its merits to sell its £oods U.

CAtlOUNB MABTIN, Parkorsburg, W. Va. If your liver does not act reg ularly go to your druggist and secure a package of Thedford's Black-Draught and take a dose tonight. This great family medicine frees the constipated bowels, stirs up the torpid liver and causes a healthy secretion of bile. Thedford's Black Draught will cleanse the bowels of im purities and strengthen the kid nevs. A torpid liver invites colds, biliousness, chills and fever and all manner of sick ness and contagion. Weak kid neys result in Bright's disease which claims as many victims as consumption.
