feature of thy closing of school and

The teachers aro now%uslly engaged
In reviewing and making thorough the
work gono over during tho session. It
is highly important that pupils attend
regularly and punctually during the en
tire session. One lesson omitted or one
interruption by tardiness or dismissal
from school causes that pupil to lose
that which he may never make up. Es
pecially Is this true during tho last
month of school.

a reasonable amount of work at home.
Pupils often fall to be advanced into

Son About Clothes

Dear Plorrepout?That order for a
carload of Spotless Snow Leaf from
old Shorter is tho kind of back talk I
like. We run stand a little nioro of tho
name sort of sassin?. I have told the
cashier that you will draw thirty a
week after this, and I want you to
have a nice suit of clothes made and
send the hill to the old man. Get some
thlng that won't keep people guessing
whother you follow tho horses or do
buck nud wing dancing for a living.
Your taste in clothes seems to be last
ing longer than the rest of your col
lego education. You looked like a young
widow who had raised the second crop
of daisies over the deceased when you
were In here last week.
Of course clothes don't make the
man, but they make all of him except
his hands nnd face during business
hours, and that's a pretty considerable
area of tho human animal. A dirty
shirt may hide a pure heart, but It sel
dom covers a clean skin. If you look
as 1/ you had slopt In your clothes,
most people will Jump to the conclusion
that you have, and you will never get
to know them well enough to explain
that your head Is so full of noble
thoughts that you haven't time to both
er with the dandruff on your shouldors.
And If you wear blue and white striped
pants and n red necktie you will find
It difficult to get close onough to a dea
con to he Invited to say graco at bis ta
ble, even If you never play for any
thing except coffee or beans.
Appearances are doceitful, I know,
but so long as they arc there's nothing
like having them dccelvo for us in
stead of against uh. Fvo scon a 10
cent shave and a 5 cent shine get a
thousand dollar Job and a cigarette
and a pint of champagne knock the
hottom out of a million dollar pork
corner. Four or five years ago llttlo
Jim Jackson had tho bears in tho pro
vision pit hibernating and living on
their own fat till one morning, the day
after he had run tho price of mess
pork up to $20 nnd nailed it there,
Borne ono saw him drinking a small
bottle just hefore he wont on 'change
and told It around among the brokers
on the floor. The bears thought Jim
must have had bad news to be bracing
up at that time in tho morning. So
they perked up and everlastingly sold
tho mess pork mnrket down through
tho bottom of the pit to solid earth.
There wasn't even a grease spot left
of that corner when they got through.
As It happened, Jim hadn't bad any
bad nowfl. He Just took the drink be
cause he felt pretty good nnd things
were coming his way.
ADVICE TO BOYS
Gel the Primary Business Virtues Into
Boys are constantly writing me for
advice about how to succeed, nud when
I send them my receipt they say that I
am dealing out commonplace generali
ties. Of course I am, but that's what
tho receipt calls for, and if n boy will
take these commonplace generalities
and knead them into his Job the mix
ture '11 bo cake.
Once a fellow's got the primary busi
ness virtues cemented Into his charac
ter he's safe to build on. But when a
clerk crawls Into the office In the morn
lug like a sick setter pup and leaps
from his stool at night with the spring
of a tiger I'm a little afraid that If I
sent him to take charge of a branch
house he wouldn't always bo around
when customers were. He's the sort o
a chap who would hold back the su
an hour every morning and have i
gain two every afternoon if the Lort
would give him the same discretionary
powers that he gave Joshua. And 1
have noticed that he's the fellow who
Invariably takes a timekeeper as an In
sult. He's pretty numerous In business
offices; in fact, if the glance of the hu
man eye could affect a clock face in
tho samo way that a man's country
cousins affect their city welcome I
should have to buy a new timepiece fo.
the otllco every morning.?From "Let

Wo sell tho best clothing
that can bo made, and the prices
are not high?an excellent suit
for either business or dress wear
can bo bought for tho modest sum
of 10.00, 12.50 and 15.00, and
it will outwear any two suits that
ordinary stores sell for about the
same money?and it will retain
its shapeliness long after the
average garment will be a mere
bundle of wrinkles and bagginess,
