NEED OF PUSH.
Ik no age o the -world's history
has push iu business of ever' kind
been as much needed as it is to-day.
It is true all cannot get a front seat,
but according to a Boston teacher of
metaphysics, if you make up your
mind that you will have a front seat
in Hfe you will attract to you the
powers that will carry you to the
front seat If (in your mind) you take
the back seat, you can get only the
back seat The confident, determined
mood of mind, steadily kept up,
brings to you other confident people.
Confidence 5n the business world
means both cash and credit There is
not half money enough in the country
for doiug its daily business. What
is lacking in com and bank notes is
made up by men's names written on
slips of paper promising to pay cer
taiu sums iu a certain time.
"What keeps thousands of noses on
the grindstone of hard times is that
they have no confidence or courage in
themselves to take risks or responsi-!
bilities. They keep a poorhouse in
their minds, and live iu it They as
pire to be only a screw in the business
machine instead of striking out and
making a machine of their own.
Their real slavery is their own
minds. They never thirk, aspire,
plan, or demand in thought to be any
thing but screws. They think there
is no place for them at the head of
the business. Their first and great
step toward staying permanently at
the tail of a business lies in thinking
that they must remain at the tail.
Because what is assured or kept
steadily in thought, -always frames an
outward exact like of itself in what
can be seen. If you think clean
clothes, you will always have clean
Always aim high. A workingman
ought never to look at a millionaire's
palace without saying: "I am going
to have a palace like that." His say
ing this in dead earnest is one
thought among many others which
pushes him forward and into his own
palace. Because it is your thought
that pushes you to do things. If you
arc in the apple trade and a thought
suddenly comes to you that you can
sell a hundred barrels of apples at a
certain place, you can't stay away
from that place. The idea will push
Beal business does not lie alone in
being industrious. The goody-goody
books and maxims have only told half
the story about industry. A good
deal depends upon what you are in
dustrious about If you spend all
your time in polishing pans or black
ing your boots, your industry won't
carry you very high. The industri
ous mind in a rested body plans in an
hour what brings in more money than
a tin-pan polishor may earn in a year.
People who work only or mostly
with their bodies have as good a right
as the capitalist to work with their
minds. The world always wants new
er things, more curious things, more
improved things, more amusing
things. No workman in any trade,
any arts any profession, should be
content with doing what some one
has done before him, even though he
does it well. He should aim at doiug
something belter than any one has
done before him. "When he can do
tins, he must next push it on the
Push is a talent as much as skill in
any art You can commence pushing
by imagining yourself as a pusher.
Keep yourself before yourself in your
mind as a pusher, and such frame of
mind will at length make a push.
There is a power in a continual imag
ination of yourself in any certain
character which does make you more
and more like such character. Imag
ine that the best belongs to you, and
you will find the best coming to you.
Imagine the worst, you see vourself
in the poorhouse, and the poorhouse
comes to you. Success, like charity,
must commence at home in the mind.
If now you are compelled to live in
a poor room, and on poor fare, do so
omy inrougn protest. Aeep your
mind on the better room and better
fare. Don't say, 'muI 'spose I must al
ways take up with this." Say instead,
"I am going to have better things
than these." You are then creating
for yourself strength, not weakness.
You are then ever strengthening this
inexplicable mental attraction which
will bring these things to you.

Beal Estate Agents in Los Angeles.
The city is honey-combed with real
estate offices. The real estate dealers
far outnumber the other business
men and all seem to be making
money. An agent who in the present
boom cannot clear from $500 to
82,000 per month from commissions
alone, is not considered much of a
"rustler." One peculiarity of their
business is that they do not have to
hunt purchasers. They rather have
to guard against the crowds that
rush in upon them when they have
anvthinc desirable to Belt In spite
of relays of clerks to work day and
night making out deeds, it is often
impossible to keep up, and a suspen
sion of the sale is necessary for a day!
or two. It has become quite common
for men to wait all night in line for a
chance to buy lots in tracts miles
away. Their patieueff is generally
Referring to Columbia river
salmon, a Boston paper says: "This
brand sold a few days ago for $1.80.
Several offers have been made of
$1.75 for all in the market. There is
no donbt but Columbia river salmon
will go to $2, delivered here. On ac
count of other deficiency, some deal
ers have been trying to induce their
customers to take Alaska fish iu place
ofthe Columbia river. The con
sumption of salmon is very large in
New England, and a good portion of
the eastern shipments eventually
find their way to Boston and vicin
ity, one wholesale grocer having pur
chased 17 carloads of 350 cases to be
placed in this vicinity. Springfield
also consumes considerable; 10 cars
have been sent there; Providence has
had 11 cars, and other cities and
towns are supplied in like manner."
The warrant issued to Adam Adam
apple, deputized as a special consta
ble to arrest near Clifton, Geo. Dee,
et al., for alleged violation of the
neutrality law regarding salmon, has
not yet been returned. The deputy
constable aforesaid writes to the min
ions of the law that there are twenty
men in that vicinity "who want to
fish," and if the majesty of tho law iB
to be upheld to send up from here
sufficient force to overawe them. As
the simple desire to fish cannot be
construed as an offense, it is not
probable .that the twenty whose
wiBhes have so far resulted in noth
ing overt will be molested.
