What Is fate? Is it merely the ac
cumulation of effort which you have
been piling up, working for you? is
it thought force massed? Is It luck,
chance? Whatever (lt . is, it defies
analysis. No doubt It is' an eternal
principle like gravitation whose ac
tion we are not conversant with.
But don't count out fate. Of course
you can mould your own life. You
can sow about what you reap. You
can point towards success or failure
by your mental attitude and by your
habits of industry and- hard work
or lack of them.
But there's another factor in it
Years ago on tho bluffs overlook
ing the sea at a point where rlBes
the great modern city of Seattle,
squatters took up their homes. They
were prompted to do this by the
clams which lay below, to be had
for the digging. They were prompted
to do this by the toothsome fish
which a line lured from the briny
These fellows lived hard lives.
They didn't have many aspirations.
If they had been possessed of aspir
ations, they wouldn't have stayed
there living as easily as possible
without any great effort.
Of a sudden gold was discovered
in Alaska. Seattle became a great
outfitting point. The lands which tho
beach combers acquired became im
mensely valuable .overnight. Fate
made those clam diggers wealthy,
through no act of theirs. They had
not foreseen the possibilities of their
beach homes. They had not dream
ed- of a great city doing a great
shipping business there. They had
directed their minds to no such re
sult. They had put forth effort to
no such result. The element of fate
alone made them rich.
On the other hand, back in tho
middle west a company of men en
gaged in the banking business. The
bank prospered. Enormous dividends
were paid. Not only did the bank
make monoy for its stockholders, but
it was a distinct aid to the comiivun
lty Inasmuch as it loaned money
for development of projects near at

Tho bank failed. Men who had
held tho success thought and had
worked day an night to bring suc
cess, who had striven to promote
human tiapplness went down. Sbme
of them never rose again.
Fate again played a part in the
destinies of mankind.
All about us we see fate working.
Men who haven't ability to fill .a
foujitaln p,on make fortunes. Others
who are clover; yes, brilliant, go
through life, unrecognized, unre
warded. It's all very well to tell us , that
