says that. "when the war between the
states broke out Jackson was the pro

strongly to take command of h cadet

called out the Htato troops mid ordered
that a corps of cadets be held ready

major, reported nt once nt the guard

The Road to Success.
Just tack this up Bomcwhcro where
you can see It:
Success consists lu getting out of
yourself everything that's lu you. It
does not consist In doing almost quite
us much or a llttlo more than the oth
er fellow. What tho other fellow docf
doesn't amount to n dent lu 11 door
knob so far as you nro concerned.
The fact that he succeeds by laying
an Atlantic cable, building an I'.lfTel
tower, Inventing wireless telegraphy or
cornering the world's supply of oil
doesn't make you n failure because you
haven't got enough ready money to
buy nil uutomoblle. You're successful
when you put to some useful purpose
every ounce of energy, every grain of
gray matter, every mite of muscle that
you'vu got. You're Hucvessful when
you've developed nil there Is to you
and have given that to the world.

Lloni Gobble Up Porcupines, and Cpm
al Eat Spiny Caetut.
A nolo lu tho Loudon Field draws at
tention to Hons that eat porcupines. It
would nppcnr that nn nnlinnl protect
ed by such powerful spines should be
quite secure from nttnek. Yet. If we
may trust tho account given, It np
pears to bo n habit on the part of the
lion nnd not nu Isolated occurrence.
Captain Dumbcll had been told by n
native hunter that the Hon was lu the
habit of eating porcupines, Ami this
has been continued by two Cngllsh
sportsmen. V. Klrby. for example,
has taken n porcupine's head from the
stomach of n lioness. Others relate
that It Is not uncommon to find lions
with porcupine quills nllcklng nil over
their noses, fares nnd paws. It seem
to nrguo some Indifference lo pain on
the part of the linn, ns well ns n fancy
for porcupine's flesh.
Compare this with tho case of the
camel, which n distinguished traveler
describes ns calmly chewing up n very
spiny plant with the blood dripping
from Its mouth! The cnitle in some of
the nrld parts of America, again,
browso on that spiny cactus. And In
some parts of the Ihigllsh coast the
horses browse on the prickly sen holly,

cases seem to show that spines In mi
