THE SUCCESSFUL LIFE.
it is to furnish us an opportunity to develop, purify, elevate and
make active and dominant our spirits.
This life is like a school for the education and development of
the spiritual nature in each man, in order to fit him to take full
advantage of the new opportunities and larger life to come. This
life is the primary school in which are to be learned tne lessons
that fit man for the higher department to follow. Without taking
the fullest advantage of the opportunities offered in this primary
grade he is in no condition to understand or to take part in the
work of the next department, or to share in the development
which it is intended to bring.
. The man who has neglected the-needs of his spiritual nature
has not only overlooked the main purpose of life, but he has
missed its greatest rewards. The beast of the field, if supplied
with food and warmth, has physical content, but he is incapable
of happiness The man who follows the desires and impulses of
the flesh and is wholly absorbed with the things of the physical
world may, like the beast, sometimes have a kind of animal con
tent and satisfaction, but he is incapable of feeling real happiness.
The intellectually developed mart has a higher enjoyment than
i x i i .ul j i
uu, uut reai nappiness is reserved ior me man wun a devel
oped soul. His spirit is attuned to the melody of the spiritual
universe. He feels the thrill of the inspiration that comes from
the Great Center Life of the creation. . The unselfish love of
God is swelling in his heart, bringing its priceless blessings. Every
moment brings a joy which the unspiritual man can not know.
And while enjoying the present he can look forward and upward
with hope aye, with certainty and trust in his God, and know
that all is well here and now and always. Whatever the world
may think of it, his is the successful life. It is the only truly suc
cessful life there is.

Our ideas of life change with our development. Each succes
sive stage in the development of the individual brings its ambitions
and interests and changes its. purposes and viewpoint, until ma
turity comes, when the so-called frolics of childhood and youth are
left behind and the man is absorbed in the avocations and ambi
tions of the average normal man. But how much better is the ordi
nary man employing his time than does the child or youth? He
spends nearly all of his time" in his business, in the making of
money, in solving his professional problems or in the prosecution
of great industrial enterprises. He measures the success of his
life in dollars and cents, 'and gets his satisfaction largely, if not
entirely, f rorft. the purely physical results he is able to accomplish.
Rarely indeed does man spend much time in thinking of, studying
or striving for those finer, deeper, diviner things, without which
the most active, prosperous and influential life is little better
than a miserable failure.
. But there is here no attempt to belittle business or any useful
occupation by which men make an honest livelihood or work the
modern business miracles. All of these things are mightily im
portant to society as well as to the individual. "He that provideth
not for his own household is worse than an infidel says the very
highest authority. He that does not discharge faithfully and con
scientiously the physical and worldly duties that life brings to
him is in no attitude or condition to properly discharge any higher
ones. No person, neglecting his first dutysto himself and his fam
ily, to go into the world in an effort to reform or regenerate it,
ever amounted to much as a preacher or reformer or got much
satisfaction or reward out of, life.

Most people have not learned that man is endowed with three
, distinct natures, the physical, the intellectual and the spiritual;
-and -that symmetrical and harmonious development of the individ
ual is impossible unless all three of these natures are given proper
. action and attention. Without this symmetrical and harmonious
' development no one can become as efficient as he may and should
be and accomplish what he might accomplish industrially, intel
lectually or spiritually. ;;;' .

The Bicycle Has Long Since
Replaced the Streetcar ,
the up-to-date batiness man has come to realize
value of the bicycle in his titijd&j life.
The Bicycle gives him the wholesome, easy exercise which he so greatly needs.
The Bicycle saves his time, at the same time it gives exercise. No more time wast
ed in waiting for street cars. No more suffocating rides in the crowded cars. An
easy spin in the cool fresh air, instead. .
The Bicycle, from a business standpoint, more than pays for itself. Jmt fifcre cp
the amount saved on street cars, the time saved, and the -betterment of yocr
health. Every business man should own a Bicycle. See our display of
