"SERVICE," SCOUT WATCHWORD
Always Courteous, Willing and Effi
cient Are the Little Fellows When
Called Upon to Render Assistance.
THE TWO BIG THINGS
In addressing a gathering of scout
leaders ut Lansing, Mich., recently,
Chief Scout Executive James E. West
pointed out that the success of the
scout movement must fundamentally
depend upon two things first, the de
sire of the boys themselves to be
scouts; second, the willingness of the
right kind of men to give leadership.
He maintained that only ns the scout
movement rung true to Its Idenls
could it get either the right kind of
men or the boys themselves and asked
every executive present to test out
his plans for scouting, to see If they
contributed to' one or the other or
both these fundamental necessities.

Most of those who find their dally
work monotonous and Imagine they
could get much greater enjoyment out
of other employment would not be
likely to make any greater headway or
find greater pleasure tu doing any
other Job under the sun, unless they
first hud a change in their owu view
point. Usually It Is not what one may lie
doing, but the spirit In which If Is
done which makes work pleasant or
undesirable. When people are con
stantly thinking of self and placing
themselves above the Importance of
the duty at hand, the task will seem
distasteful ii:d Inconseipientlal, re
gardless of how much Its successful
accomplishment means to the world.
The story Is told of a school teacher
who hated her work and was ex
tremely anxious to become a nurse.
She complained that there was noth
ing to her life but a mile-long trip
letween two ugly fences twice a day
nnd the Intervening hours spent in
aching the same monotonous lessons
over and over again. So she thought
It would be so very lovely to don a
white cap and apron und devote the
remainder of her life to caring for
Fortunately she stated her opinion
to a clear-headed and broad-minded
hyslclan and asked him to aid her In
finding employment ns a student In
hospltnl. When this man heard
why she wished to give up teaching
as a profession, he kindly told her that
she was temperamentally unfitted to
be a nurse, for nursing meant ex
treme self-sacrifice. If she thought
so much of herself that she couldn't
find enjoyment In the work of making
good and able Americans through
teaching, due to her constant thoughts
of self, he contended that she would
have even a smaller chance of getting
enjoyment out of the nursing pro
fession, which demanded more devo
tion to others' welfare.
"Don't bring worries to tha table.
Don't bring anger, hate or acowls;
Banish everything unpleasant.
Talk and eat with smiling jowls.
It will aid your own digestion,
If you wear a smiling fnca;
It will Jolly up the others.
If you only aet the pace.
Knowing something funny, tell It;
Something sad, forget to knell It
Something hateful, quick dlapel It
At the table."
GOOD THINGS WE ALL ENJOY
CHICKEN cooked as a pot roast Is
much superior to the ordinary
fried dish, as It Is moist and juicy.
Cut It up as for frying, place In a
tight kettle with a little fat, stir until
hot, add a very little water io keep
It from burning and cook closely cov
ered. Usually no more water will be
needed, but add very little, a table
spoonful or two at a time. Season
and cook very slowly for two or three
hours. Longer Is better.

In some subtle way civility touches
heurts and knits mankind closer to

a long way to go and a great deal

To those who are Just storting
careers, nnd especially to the young,
good manners are as essential to
their success as good commendations.
Indeed, politeness may be said to
be the better thing of the two, for the
reason that It builds character, and
makes It Imposing In the eyes of oth
ers. There Is no time In one's life that
courtesy of behavior In the treatment
of others falls to win recognition.
The employee who Is uniformly
civil, considerate of his or her em
ployer, and thoughtful of associates
as well, Is usually the first to win pro
motion. If you will think back, study cause
and effect, you will find ns you reflect
that the greater number of failures In
life hail their beginning In Incivility,
and that those who today are conspic

courteous In words and acts.
