HAVE A PURPOSE, AND STICK
Admittedly Hard Lesson to Learn, but
It Means Success to Those
Who Master It
Did you ever realize that It Is not
an easy thing to concentrate? If you
don't believe. this shut your eyes right
now and try to think for five minutes
absolutely on one subject. It may be
that you will choose dollars, or dough
nuts, or ducks. But If at the end of
five minutes you can truthfully say
that never once did your mind wander
from the definite subject which you
chose you're a wonder.
It is Just the same with our actions,
It Is the unusual person who can
stick to one purpose until It is fully
accomplished. So many other things,
apparently Just as Important, Inter
Those who have learned this hard
lesson are the most successful
Thomas Edison, Mme. Curie, Luther
Burbank, each show of what the hu
man mind is capable when it thinks on
or.o set of facts.
We probably could not equal them
If we did think, for, along with their
power of concentration, are unusual
talents, but the point Is this: We all
have some degree of possibility within.
We all feel an interest in some,speclal
tiling. Why not think seriously upon
itf We're a great deal richer than we
sometimes think we are. It pays to
mind our own possibilities.
"As a man thlnketh so is he," is no
mere figure of speech. It Is a psy
chological truism. A man's thoughts,
his Ideas, are the great determinants
of all his behavior.

mind Is stumbling over an Imaginary
obstacle on the road to making good,
The man who succeeds Is the man who

EXPLAINING DOG-FACED MEN
MAY RESUME CORAL FISHING
Expedted Revival of Industry as a Re
sult of Systematic Exploration
of the Banks.
The coasts of Algiers and Tunis in
Africa , have long been famous for
their production of coral; but some
years ago coral fishing on these coasts
rapidly diminished, until it was aban
doned. Now, however, this Industry
seems to bo reviving In Algiers and it
is expected that It will be resumed In
Tunis. A systematic exploration of
coral banks has been under way and
the best methods of collecting the cor
al have been discussed. The old way,
which was very wasteful, consisted in
the use of various forms of grapples,
combined with strong nets, which were
swept over the banks, tearing delicate
structures apart, and recovering but
a small portion of the broken coral.
The employment of divers is advocated
as more economical, both In the quality
of the harvest and the preservation of
the banks. Divers can descend to a
depth of about 180 feet, and good coral
is seldom found 9t greater depths.
Transparent animals are remark
able. Yet recent studies of two larval
eels which possess this peculiarity,
and which belong to one of the gov
ernment bureaus at Washington, seem
to show that among the possible ad'
vantages of being transparent Is listed
economy In personal decoration."
In ordinary opaque animals the col
or markings are symmetrical on both
sides of the body, but this is not the
case with the transparent eels. When
looked at from one side these eels ap
pear to have seven large, black spots
arranged at nearly regular intervals
along the length of its body; closer
examination shows that in each case
three spots are on the left side and
four on the right. They are irreg
ularly spaced, but in such a manner
that on looking through the body all
seven appear in a symmetrical row.
Wireless Hour Signals.
When a ship Is approaching shore
great caution la often necessary be
cause of "uncertainty as to the ves
sel's precise position. It was some
years ago that It was first proposed
that wireless telegraphy be utilized to
send hour signals over the sea round
England to a distance of 200 or 800
miles from shore. In order that the
captains of Incoming ships might thus
be enabled to rectify their chronome
ters to Greenwich time. The govern
ment of Canada thereupon established
a system of this kind at Camperdown,
near Halifax. Every morning the
exact hour is sent out over the sea,
so that all vessels furnished with re
ceiving apparatus may pick up the true
time from the air. Washington Star.
Waste and Wet. Lands Have Value.
aste and wet lands have their
uses, and under proper management
can be made to yield a good return.
Drainage, which Is always expensive,
Is often employed to transform land
which would be available as, a sanctu
ary for waterfowl, or for the produc
tion of fish or nut crops, into tillable
land In regions where there is al
ready plenty . of farming soil. The
needs of many communities would be
better served if the wet lands were

Chinese Tribe Said to Owe Their Mal
formation to the Impatience of
t , Ancient King.
r- " - ' -
Curiosity, and a man's at that, Is re
sponsible for the "dog faces" xf
large tribe In southeastern China, ac
cording to legend.
Time was when this tribe was as
pleasing In appearance as any other,
the legend runs.' The king in those
far-off days greatly coveted the head
of one of his enemies, as a decoration
for a spear-point in the court. - He
offered his third daughter in marriage
to ' the hero who would slay ; the
enemy. . .
The king of the dogs made up his
mind to win a human bride. In due
time he laid the coveted head at the
feet of the human king.
The princess, of course, was dis
mayed at the Idea of marrying a dog,
and her father was sympathetic. A
sage came to the rescue, saying that
if the dog were put In a box, and the
box were hung over the wall of the
city for 40 days, the dog would change
into a man.
His directions were followed. , But
before the.40 days had elapsed, the all'
too-human king opened the box to see
how the transformation was progress
ing. . Out stepped something that was
a man except for the head, which was
still that of a dog.
The princess was obliged to marry
the dog king, anyway, and the race
gradually came to bear the doglike
facial and cranial features observable
today. The name of the tribe, Hak
kas, signifies "dog-headed.''
In England, In medieval times, the
Christian feast of Penticost absorbed
one of the summer festivals of the
pagan inhabitants cf western Europe.
It was commonly celebrated In all
parts of the country by What , was
termed the Whltsun-ale, and It was a
great time for the Morris-dancers,
Antiquaries seem agreed that the old
English Morris-dance, so great a favor
ite in the Sixteenth century, and still
used, was derived through Spain from
the Moors, and that its name In Span
'ah. "Morisco," a Moor, was taken from
this circumstance. ,
