Moat financial failure are caused by trying to go too fast. Thoie who go
"across lots," or the get-rich-ijuick route, encounter many pitfalls.
The main-traveled road to success is the one which leads to the savings
bank. It may seem slow to some, but proof abounds that those who keep on
it succeed in accumulating money and learn to handle it wisely.

Alternate Car Service
St. Johns is to have n now
method of operating its street
cars, beginning Monday, Oct
ober 20. Tho loop begins at
Wall street and Lombard avenue,
running north to Fessenden
street which it follows until it
reaches Jersey street and con
tinuing down through the heart
of St. Johns until Lombard is
reached. Tho new scheme pro
vides that alternate cars coining
from Portland pass over Wall
street making the loop, lhe
opposite cars pass down Lombard
street to St. Johns ami go out
on Fessenden street to Wall and
Lombard streets reaching the
. Mil. .

new arrangement gives practical
ly a local car service In me at.
Johns district.
The now schedule was worked
out by the officials of the com
pany at the romiost of the
St. Johns Commercial Club and
riHitiired an oxnend turo of SMHH).
Cars going by way of the south
track of the loop will lie mnrKOd
south s do" and those going
on the north track "north side."
For tho nresent the regular
schedule now in force will be
maintained, which later may
be changed if adjustment is
found tiecossarv. All nassengers
on the cars will be supplied with,
schedules showing how each car
will bo routed, which should be
carefully studied so that all may
becomo familiar with the rout
ing. The company deserves a
largo share of commendation for
going to the expense of making
this convenience for tho St. Johns
folks. In fact, tho company has
evorboon fair in all its dealings
with St. Johns folks, and given
as much and more in tho way
of service than the patronage
justified from a financial stand
