gladness away from his fellow men.

penned a note In which he suid :
"The world has grown corrupt. It
is no decent place to live in. One has
to be a thief, a whisky runner or In
ebriate else he Is no good any more."
A poor excuse to remove himself
from this life of sunshine and gladness.
But he had even less excuse for un
loading his pessimism to disturb the
lives of thousands who are finding this
a pretty good old world In which to

The Secret of
a Convincing Talker
How I Learned It in One Evening.
"Have you heard the newt about Frank
Jordan 1" The question quickly brought me
to tiie little group which had gathered Id
the center of the office. Jordan and I had
started with the Great Eastern Machinery
Company, within a mouth of esch other, four
year a ago. A year ago, Jordan waa taken
into the accounting division and I waa lent
out aa salesman. Neither of us waa blessed
with an .unusual amount of brilllaucy, but we
"got by" ia our new Jobs well enough to
Imagine my ammement, then, when I heard:
"Jordan'a juat been made Treasurer of the
Company I "
I couid hardly believe my ears. But there
waa the "Notice to Employees' "n the bul
letin board, telling about Jordan's good for
Now I knew that Jordan wai a capable
fellow, quiet, and unassuming, but I never
would have picked him for any auch sudden
rise. I knew, too, that the Treasurer of the
Great Eastern hud to be a big man, and I
wondered how in the world Jordan landed
The first chance I got, I walked Into Jordan's
new office and after congratulating him warm
ly, I asked him to let me "in" on the details
of how he Jumped ahead so quickly. His story
is so intensely interesting that I am going
to repeat it as closely as I remember.
"I'll tell you just how It happened, George,
because you may pick up a pointer or two
thiit will help you.
"You remember how scared I need to be
whenever I had to talk to the chief t You
remember how you used to tell me that every
time I opened my mouth I put my foot Into it,
meaning of course that every time I spoke I got
into trouble 1 You remember when Ralph
Si n ton left to take charge of 4he Western of
fire and I wns asked to presbst him with the
loving cup the boys gave him, how flustered
I was and how I couldn't say word because
there were people around t You remember how
confused I used to be every time I met new
people! I couldn't say what I wanted to say
when I wanted to any It; and I determined
that if there was any possible chance to learn
now to tail, l was going; to do It,
"The first thing I did was to buy a num
ber of books on publie streaking, but they
seemed to be meant for those who wanted
to become orators, whereas what I wanted
to learn waa not only how to speak In publie
but how to speak to individuals under various
conditions in business and social life.
"A few weeks later, just as I was about
to give up hope of aver leaning how to
talk interestingly, I read an announcement
stating that Dr. Frederick Honk Law had just
completed a new course In business talking
and public speaking entitled 'Mastery of
epeecn.' i sent lor them ana in a tew days
they arrived, I glanced through the entire
eight lessons, reading the headings and a few
paragraphs nnre ana there, ana in about an
hour the whole Becret of effective speaking
was opened to me.
"For example, I learned why I had always
lacked confidence, why talking had always
seemed something to be dreaded, whereas it
is really the simplest thing In the world to get
up and talk, I learned how to secure complete
attention to what I was saying and how to
make everything I said interesting, forceful and
convincing. I learned the art of listening, the
value of silence, and the power of brevity. In
stead of being funny at the wrong time, I
learned how and when to use humor with tell
"But perhaps the most wonderful thing
about the lessons were the actual, examples of
wnat things to say ana when to say them to
meet every condition. I found that there was
a knack in making oral reports to my superiors.

A FRIEND IN NEED
A FRIEND INDEED
Writes Mrs. Hardee Regarding
Lydia E. Pinkham'i Vegetable
Los Angeles, Calif. "I must tell you
that I am a true friend to Lydia E. Pink-
ham s Vegetable
Compound. 1 have
taken it on ana on
for twenty years and
it has helped me
change from a deli
cate girl to a stout,
When 1 was married
I was sick all the
time until I took
Lydia E. Pinkham's
pound. I was in bed
much of my time with pains and had to
have the doctor every month. One day
I found a little book in my yard in
Guthrie, Oklahoma, and I read it through
and got the medicine Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound and took
eight bottles and used the Sanative
Wash. I at once began to get stronger.
I have got many women to take it just
loy telling them what it has done for me.
I have a young sister whom it has
helped in the same way it helped me.
1 want you to know that I am a 'friend
indeed, for vou were a 'friend in need.' "
Mrs. George Hahdee, 1043 Byram
St., Los Angeles, California.
Let Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound be a iritnd indeed to you.
I found that there was a right way and i
wrong way to preaent complaints, to girt Mtt
mates, and to iasue orders.
"1 picked up some wonderful pointers about
how to give my opinions, about how to answer
complaints, about how to ask the bank (or a
loan, about how to ask for extensions. Another
thing that struck me forcibly was that In
stead of antagonizing people when I didn't
agree with them, I learned how to bring them
around to my way of thinking In the most
pleasant Sort of way. Then, of course, along
with those lessons there were chapters on
speaking before large audiences, how to find
material for talking and speaking, how to talk
to friends, how to talk to servants, and how
to talk to children.
"Why I got the secret the very first even
ing aud It was only a short time before I was
able to apply all of the principles and found
that my words were beginning to have an
almost magical effect upon everybody te whom
I spoke. It seemed that I got things done
Instantly, where formerly, as you know, what I
said 'went In one ear and out the, other,' I '
began to acquire an executive ability that sur
prised me. I smoothed out difficulties like
a true diplomat. In my talks with the chief
I spoke cl parly, simply, convincingly. Then
came my first promotion since I entered the
accounting department. I whs given the Job .
of answering complaints, and I made good.
From that I was given the Job. of making
collections. When Mr. Buckley joined the
Officers' Training Camp, I was made Treasurer.
Between you and me, George, my salary Is
now $7,500 a year and I expect It will be
more from the first of the year.
"And I want to tell you sincerely, that I
attribute my success solmy to the fact that I
learned how to talk to people."
When Jordan finished, I asked him for the
address of the publishers of Dr. Law's course
and he gave it to me. I sent for it and found
it to be exactly as he had stated. After study
ing the eight simple lessons I began to sell to
people who had previously refused to listen to
me at atl. After four months of record-breaking
sales during the dullest season of the
year, I received a wire from the chief asking
me to return to the home office, We had quit
a long talk In which I explained how I was
able to break stiles recordsand I was ap
pointed Sales ManHger at almost twice my
former salary, I know that there was noth
ing in me that had changed except that I bad
acquired the ability to talk where formerly
I simply used "words without reason." I can
never thank Jordan enough for telling me about
Dr. Law's Course in Business Talking and
Public Speaking. Jordan and I are both
spending all our spare time making public
speeches end Jordan is being talked about now
