Suocess comes from effort; effort Jfthe nso of-a

This is tha belief of Dr. Samuel B. Hall, a physician
who has made a llfo study of the building up of physl
, cat wrecks. ' .:.'- :, -.'
: Dr. Hall's methods are different from tha ways of the
,' old-school doctors- He believes that electricity alone Is
the power which runs the human Intellect and tha phys-
leal machinery. , . .. -7' ., t''
Dr. Hall Is tho Inventor of tha neweat device for elec
trifying the human body. It la a dry-cell battery or

' His experience has been wide, and his success along
the lines of hla belief has been enormous If one Is to
Judge by tha following he has and the number of people
( who give him credit for their first look into the happier
c - future that has come t them. .-..-. .!-'.
s Dr. Hall haa publlahed one of tha most Interesting
"books I havo ever reed dealing with thla subject. It is
v highly snd artistically Illustrated. Anyone can get It
. from him free for the asking. '
-i! Hero are a few of tr. Hall's opinions:
i; - Success i possible in this world tn any man who has
- the energy to strive for what no wants. The only. way
to get whaPyou want is ta work for It nd work uses
tm rarrn. x man without enercy haa.no inclination to
; "' work. It Is proven that tfto vital energy of the human
"- ,body Ja eleotrtclty. Tnererore, 1 peuevo tnai eiecincity
' is tho foundation of success.
Tou have heard of the railroad manager who started
".'in as office boy; of tho traffic manager who earned hla
, first month's pay as brakeman. Contrast with them the
' Janitor who started in aa office boy, and the track
,' walker who started In aa a brakeman, and you can see
the difference in the results The Janitor had an even
Tetart with the prealdent both started as office boya
andthe-JJ-ick. walker. had. lha same start Mjjhejrafflc
manager, but. he did not have the nervous energy.
. . . There is no doubt that a man's health haa a great
'deal to do with his suocess. There are few occupations
.. nowadays where a man can expect to beoome anything
but a pjodder unleaa he puta bla shoulder-to the wheel
"7 and puaheo himself ahead, and when a man Is disturbed
;', every hour of tho day by mental torture over his physl-
cat incapacity ha has not tha spirit or ambition to strike
'., out and do things for himself.
.. "Get ap and hustle,' advises the. man who won sue
,,ceas by hustling by the force of his energy. The sd
- . vice Is good, but the plodder held down by want of that
r' physical and mental forco which make him a hustler,
. haa no inclination; he has to 7 drive himself to get
' through his day's work. .. -

I hsve in mind now a man who struggled through
. eighteen years he Is 43 years now as a Journeyman
r1' mechanic In one of our big manufacturing concerns. He
' was a good tneohantc, no better nor worse than dosens
. of others around him; but he seemed some way to be
'-' differently conatltuted Trora the rest He had a nice
way about him that seemed to suggest undeveloped
' power to do things, yet he did not accomplish any more
than his fellows. One day he came to see me and told
'' me his atoryi ,(
f t Sine early manhood lie had auffered from a nervous

With Electro-Vigor. He felt relief In a few weelcn. and

I have found a great many men like this in tny ex
periencemen of vigorous cpnstltutlons who havo not
the moral courage to work out their, own destiny; men
intended by nature to lead, but who, because of soma
nervous weakness are left behind in the race.
It Is pretty evident that -this life Is a race between
the strong, and the weak. It ia a race where the prise
goes to the man with strength, courage and ambition

you supply youraelf with tho meanaof carrying your-v.
project through successfully. ' The moat Important to a
man who expects to work his way up are strength, - .
nerve power, courage. All those come from electricity, -the
motive power of tha body. .
Tho laborer on the street haa ambitions or should
have, unless they are dimmed by a sense of physical -weakness.
He wants to earn mors, to secure a more- -elevated
position to get out of the rut There are
chances all around him and he 1a bound to land ono of '
them' If he has the energy to reach out for it when it
cornea along. '7 -r -. ' - .7-
' A few years ago I had a patient who' worked with a
street .gang repairing tho basalt paving which Is laid
between street car tracks. Ha waa typical of his
class bard-worhlng, patient and enduring, and seemed .
to have no Interest beyond doing his work honestly and
taking his pay. I will not attempt to say what process -,.
of evolution took place in tho mind of that man in tha
few months he waa under my treatment but I will say ,
that when I saw hlra again he was "slicked up" end '
acted as If he might own the road. He had fully re- '
covered his health and with It some energy which ha '
had lost and when he called on mrf.he waa timekeeper, 7
on tho Job, with a growing chance for something better.
It's a mistake for any man to suppose that he was
made for a laborer, to imagine that there Is no chance '
for him at something better. "There's plenty of room
at the top." and any man can do better if be has tho '
energy to try. : .t -V .. -
. Tho reason that there are laborers Is that thera are
always enough men who allow themselves to bo held '
down; men with no ambition to hustle out of the rut;
men willing to sell a day's work for a couple of dollar
when they know tKat the day's work Is worth probably -four
dollars to the man who buys it ,'., . ,

This ambition, which makes business men nut of
laborers; this spirit which awakena In a man and leads
him forward; thla courage which hacks up every in
spiration to better himself Is nothing but the elec
tricity, the vital force of hla body. - ?

to do it when he gets no rest from his slp. and his

Is to sleep, sleep, sleep? His feeling is that another

'You will hear the croaker say of a successful man,'
"I can't see what there Is about that fellow that makea
everything he puts his hand on turn to money. He
len t any smarter than I am, and here I am plodding
along Just making a bare living by hard work. I waa
shead of him at school: In fact, he was the fool of the
class, but here he Is rolling up thousands at every turn,
while men who are smsrter In everything seem to have
trouble to make a decent living." ,
Rut here are the facts: The successful man makea
things move; he's on the go all the time, chasing the
dollars uphill snd down the lane, and he catchea up .
with lota of them, while his brighter but lasy .friend
sits down and waits for them to fall In hla lap. ,
