THE CHANCE GOES HY. A man does not always know his chance when it comes to him, but if he lets it pass, he will lea'ii in time that it went by. Then, too late- he will over whelm himself with reproaches for not seizing the golden oppor tunity. Business men decry tardiness W. C. ROUNDTREE, M_ D.

Returning belated, one may listen eagerly for a repetition of that sum mons to rise and confront Des tiny face to face, but it does not come. The great chance appear ed unheralded and found us wanting and went away, leav ing no address with -which we may communicate. For our chances do not come with brass-band music and pen nons waving. They stealt'ily ap proach: they seldom advertise. They ccrne, like successful bur glars, when we expect them least. “If only we had known!” we c'y with vain regret. But they promptly went where there were others waiting for them, with trimmed lamps. These others seized what might have been our own, and all our boast of what we might have done had our “luck” been differ ent is unavailing. svhat is luck? Most of the time it means to be in the right place at the right moment. The one who is there is the winner over one who is elsewhere. And he who is there must be present not in physical sense; he must attend with all his faculties. As Shakespeare reminds us, it is of no use to have our eyes open if “their sense is shut.” A sen tinel may be at his post, but he is futile if he sleeps. Thus to recognize and to im prove the opportunity one must be broad awake to it with the keen edge of the senses whetted. The worker who brings only part of his mind to his task is not worth the whole of the pay he draws. He will miss chances not merely for himself - those that quickly seized may prom°te his own fortunes- -but for the concern that when it secured his services supposed that it was getting every bit of the man he is. Fie must not expect a work er’s pay unless he serves with aii his senses aware. I Forgot To Tell You, WHEN IN NORTON FEED YOURSELF AT The Liberty Caf e NEXT DOOR TO Cohen’s Dept. Store.

The answ er for generations back has been “nothing.” True a rose by any other name would smell as sweet but try to sell it under a different name if you would better estimate the value of a name. The name of Alexander, Han nibal, Caesar and Napoleon ev acuated walled cities, turned whole armies into disastrous retreat, and conque'ed empires. Those names obtained their mag ic from the deeds of their own ers. Because his name might have been Smith would not have pre vented Shakespeare f'om writ ing his classic tragedies and in spite of their common names George Washington and Abra ham Lincoln won immortal fame. Genious is as accidental as its name. And yet American manufactur 3rs spend millions annually on names. For the purpose of estab lishing a trade name business 2nterprises conduct nation-wide and even world-wide advertising campaigns. To many manufact urers the name of their product is their fortune, a fo’tune which :ould not be amassed without the aid of advertising. Modern business has learned that the three essentials for success in merchandising are a worthy product, a fade-mark and an adequate advertising cam oaign. Advertising-is as essen tial to retail business as to the manufacture. If you’re wedded to your job pay your savings account some; regular alimony.

Farmers and business men of the United States are confronted with a staggering burden of local taxation, administered too fre quently under an unsound system which makes it easy to get into del t and difficult to control ex penditure. Figures recently pre pared show that we are spending for taxes annually a sum equal to lalf our savings banks deposits. Taxes cost us an amount greater than the value of all crops raised on our 6,500,000 farms using 340, 400,000 acres of land. Our annual wheat crop, the lar gest in the world, if turned over to our .state governments, would just about meet their expendi tures for one year. While we are .he largest producers of food stuffs and cotton in the world, ;he value of both crops, if turned over to the local subdivisions of die states, cities, towns, counties and townships, would not meet cheir revenue requirements for last year. We lead all nations in indus trial production, but the net in come of all manufacturing cor porations in our country is not equal to the combined expendi ture of state and local govern ment. Neither would all the money in circulation in the Uni ted States pay their bills for last year. _ A hustler has no time for bad luck. The best nation in the world is explanation.
