THE RECIPE FOR SUCCESS
Keep Your Promises and Be Up to the
Minute, Is Advice Worth
Young men all people, In fact who
are to be counseled like to have the
advice re-enforced by anecdote, or by
a page of autobiography disclosing
personal experience, provided the story
Is not told Just because of personal
conceit. If men who have worked hard
and at last reached the place they
sought were polled on the question of
their success, most ot them would not
ascribe it to any very elaborate, In
tricate program. They would attrib
ute It probably to one or two simple
habits which anybody whose brain Is
alive may discover and acquire.
One of these habits Is, no doubt,
that of being not merely up to the
minute, but on the minute. He who
Is prompt may be forgiven a few sins
of several kinds unrelated to the pas
sage of the Beasons and the precession
equinoxes. Did you ever go to a place
taking It on faith that others would be
on time, and then stand waiting with
surreptitious dives into the watch
pocket while the others took their
own time, and yours too, assembling?
nuaest ana most offensive of all is
the conduct of the public entertainer,
woman or man, who does not hesitate
to keep an audience waiting twenty
minutes or half an hour. At the latter
rate, a thousand people means 600
hours, or nearly twenty-one days,
What right has anybody to be a thief
of time to that extent? If It Is socia
ble and fashionable to keep all those
people sitting and palavering in sx
pectancy, then it Is time a new Ca
tonian censorship of polite conduct
Many a young fellow has ruined his
business chances by frequently prom
ising to be "on deck" on the dot, and
then falling to live up to his pledge.
The reason does not particularly mat
ter. The fact remains, he wasn't there,
and whatever the woe and the dust he
raises afterward, It is unavailing. In
this world of grim, unmitigated fact,
you are or you aren't, you do or you
don t. The coroner and the under
taker are overworked unless the dead
past Is allowed to bury its dead. Busi

Tears and Smiles.
Some girls have such little April
faces and dispositions! One can al
most see the reflection of every pass
ing mood in their pretty eyes. Per
haps the day has begun well with sun
shine, and everything pleasant and
happy. Then MIsb Sunshine flits from
room to room, doing her tasks wlfh
a gay heart and a smile like a golden
ray of brightness.
But alas! the blue sky suddenly be
comes overcast. "He has not writ
ten, as he so faithfully promised, or
the new frock has not come, and so
there will be no eagerly anticipated
evening of amusement and delight.
Away goes the sunlight from the
blue eyes, and down comes the pa
thetic little shower of tears of dis
appointment and unhapplness. Miss
Sunshine no longer lives up to her
pretty name; she feels that she can
not do so.
But she must take heart, for the
world cannot do without her, any
more than it can do without the
flowers and the other lovely things if
nature. After the tears there must
be smiles, as after the rain the sun
shine. For that Is the way with a little
maid, and for it she Is loved and wel
Waterprooflna for French Uniform
Lanolin, the fat extracted from wool
In the process of cleaning it for manu
facture. is being used bv the French
authorities for waterproofing the cloth
ing of their soldiers in the field. The
wool rat Is reduced to a liquid by the
use of a suitable solvent, such as chlo
roform or carbon bisulphide, and then
diluted with a volatile hydrocarbon,
like benzine, naphtha, or gasoline. Gar
ments soaked for a short time in this
liquid dry quickly when hung in the
open, leaving the fibers Impregnated
with lanolin and almost perfectly non
absorbent of water. Neither the color
nor the fabric is impaired by the treat
ment. Popular Mechanics.
Centenary of "Lalla Rookh."
"Lalla Rookh," which figures in the
bill of entertainment at the Shaftes
bury theater In London In aid A the
wounded Indians' fund, has Just at
tained its centenary, for it was in 1815
that Tom Moore set himself to pro
duce his Oriental romance.
The poem, says the Pall Mall Ga
zette, was the subject of one of the
most curious agreements ever made
between poet and publisher, Longman
undertaking to pay Moore three thou
sand guineas for an eastern poem and
to take It for better or worse, at any
time that suited the author's conven
ience, and without any power to sug
gest changes or alterations.
Sandals Worn by Mexicans.
Wooden sandals are now being worn
to a great extent by tbe laboring
classes In Mexican cities and by na
tives engaged in farming, In place of
the old form of leather sandals used
by the Mexicans for many centuries.
They are being substituted for the
primitive homemade leather sandals
because of the scarcity and high price
of native tanned leather, because of
the scarcity of sheepskin thongs for
lacing and because the native Indian

Are You loo ratr
If you are too stout don't take fat-
reducing medicines. Cut down on
your diet, get out-of-door exercise, and
you will assume normal lines and re
duce to normal weight. Avoid sweets,
eggs, cream, fat meats, and especially
potatoes. Live mainly on lettuce,
spinach, cabbage, lean meats, young
onions, celery, tomatoes, etc Take
salted toast Instead of bread and but
ter. If you cease to give your body
fat-making foods you will cease cre
ating fat cells. It Is no trick to reduce
If you practice self-denial.
There is no one able or anxlons to
deny the value of a method. But there
arc many who realize that method Is
not everything, and that strict adher
ence to It sometimes becomes a nuis
ance. There Is a madness in bard and
fast rules. The strict adherence to
some method is almost as bad as hav
ing no method at all. We should re
member that our actions have, at all
times, to be guided by circumstances.
