There are many men who have IB made success, as the world counts 0 success. That is they have acr cumulated wealth in spite of the . fcage. These men, by reason of e brains and energy, have succeeded in spite of being handicapped by lack of education, and not by reaf son of the Jack. In fact, the ^ same men would have taken far c higher positions had they had . educational advantages. Of course ] there are many men who have j made a poor use of their educa1 tion, but this is the fault of the ! men and not of the education. ( But while the world admires the ^ man who has piled up a great mftnV rlnllnro in 1_?: ^ J , ID uuo aUL'UUiUlHblUIl of a fortune the best measure of the success^of a man's life? The fact is, that the men who have ' done the most good in the world, the meu who have influenced their race for better things, have rarely made fortunes, and while the college graduate may not, for the reason of being a graduate, be able to accumulate dollars, he will certainly be prepared to do more service to humanity than the uneducated man. And after all, is not the amount of service the man renders to humanity a better measure of success than the piling up of a fortune to rui^ his children? The man who sends out into the world a family of educated sons and daughters has made real success even if it took his last dollar to educate them. The influence of his life will be felt long after he is in his grave. The young mail with a good education without a dollar to start with, ie in a far netter shape than the ignorant young man who has a for tune left to him. In fact, a fortune is, as a rule,more of a handicap than a help to a young man starting in life. The best fortune you can possibly leave your children is a thoroughly good education.?W. F. Massey, in Raleigh (N. C ) Progressive Fanner. A Valuable Lesson to Learn. A friend of the writer, when a young man, although of very limited means, left his Southern home and spent several monthe , in a prosperous agricultural section. working on a farm, with a view of studying progressive agricultural methods. After his return a neighbor, in an attempt to belittle his attempt to learn by visiting other sections, asked our friend what he learned while ai way studying "fancy" farming. The reply was that he had learned many things, but the one that he . had regarded as probably worth I the most was that he had learned 'llow a real farm ought to look " > Twenty years later, although . our friend had passed through j seasons of hard work and desper1 ate struggles and had lived in a . typical Southern sectiou with its 3 scarred and gullied fields and un. painted buildings, he had won a B marked success, and not a gullio marred the beauty of his splendid s farm and the nicely kept lawn i, and tastily painted farm build b ings,?including bar.is and other r out-buildings as well as the house. y ?showed that he had not forgot ten the lesson learned many years e before. e Now it is folly for any one to i state that this man was able to i- paint his farm buildings because he was successful. He painted * them before lie uehieved success, - and the spirit and taste which [- caused him to paint his farm - buildings filled up the gullies and y clean up and keep tidy the whole is farm, was th) same spirit of prot gress and good S'Miso which enu *bled him to achieve success in is his farming. He did not do these at things because he had more mon* [i- ey than his neighbors, but he had more money because he did such re things.?Tail Butler, in Raleigh (N. C.) Progressive Farmer.
