many counties which were counted as

in Minneapolis (Preus' home city) than

Republican headquarters continued

would maintain the ratio of the first

800,000 eligible voters in the state.
In almost every case the county re

HEED THE PILOT
VOU wl" seldom be In a crowd of
men an hour before you bear one
of them say:
"If I were twenty-one years old and
knew as much as I do now, I'd be a
whale of a success."
Perhaps he would. Perhaps he
wouldn't. But It is certain that If
he could begin life at twenty-one with
tie experience of forty be would be
far better off.
And the curious thing aboitf It all
Is that he could avail himself of thfs
experience If he would pay heed to
the pilots who are always wiling to
What would you think of a man,
who, after asking a policeman for the
way to the railroad station, and get
ting the direction would deliberately
go the other way?
Tet that is what is done, repeated
ly, by almost every young man who
starts out In life.
From his father, his employer, from
older friends, he constantly receives
directions which, If followed, would
They come from the experience
which these men have dearly paid for.
They are Invaluable.
Tet youth is unheeding, and the ad
vice Is almost instantly forgotten with
the result that the recipient has to
learn from an experience as expensive
and often as disastrous as that of the
man who counseled him.
If you are a young man you are
fortunate. Almost any of your elders
will give you sound and sensilile ad
vice advice which you can follow to
your own profit If you will.
Tou can learn by the mistakes of
others. Instead of by your own.
Tou can plot your own course from
a chart which has been made by those
who have gone before you.
Tou will be wise to do It. Your
own experience Is a good teacher, but
It Is an expensive teacher. Far bet
ter listen, and listen carefully to the
pilot who has traveled the same sea
you must travel, and knows where
the rocks are.
Some young men do this, and all
s them who do so succeed.
Remember that, and you will be
saved many griefs, many losses, and
perhaps final and utter fullure. And
when you are forty, and nowhere,
you will not be repining that you can't
start the world at twenty-one with
your present knowledge.

You are a weakling, wrecked along
Let no man smile and say you've lost
You're Judged by what you seem In

Whatever be the place that now Is his,
