Advertising has become, in these

LEARNING A BUSINESS.
As a rule, the beBt business men
are those who commenced their
mercantile career in a very subor
dinate position, and, by steady
application and attention to the
duties that devolved upon them,
worked their way upward into a
place of prominence. A close in
quiry into the careers of many
business men reveals the fact that
the most of them began business as
poor boys, and, by energy, industry
and economy, acquired wealth and
influence. Instances are rare in
which a young man has begun
business at the top and has made
a grand success of it. Such in
stances sometimes occur, but not
with great frequency. The quick
est way in the world in which a
young man can get rid of a fortune
is to embark in a business of which
he knows nothing and attempt to
run it on a large scale.
The education of most of the
prominent business men began in
small country stores, with which
they remained until their growing
ambition brought them into a field
where they had larger and more
splendid opportunities. We know
there are thousands of young men
who are disheartened and dis
couraged at the humble position in
life which they are filling at the'
present time; but we sincerely
believe there never was a better
time for young men to rise in the
world than exists now. There is
always a demand for young men
of the Tight stamp. It takes pluck,
perseverance and persistence some
times to gain the ends desired; but
few really fail in finding recogni
tion iu the business world who
are reallyjworthy of it.
As water will always find its
level when left to its own control,
so will a young man find his level
in the business world. He cannot
hope to reach a high position ex
cept on his own merits, and if he
has no ambition to attain anything
beyond mediocrity, the world, as a
rule, will estimate him at the value
Hiiuh he places upon himself.
The above article is well written
and we endorse all of itwith the
exception of the statement that
there never was. a bettor time for
young men to rise in the business
world. Depend upon it, in this
day of great corporations and
trusts, when money rules the
world, the young man who rises to
a great height in business will be a
hustler, and no mistake.

Weight of the Bo4.
Quartelet obtained some weight rec
ords of note, but no reliance can be
placed in them in the light of modem
observation. He concluded from such
statistics as he could get that a new
born infant was, on the average, one
twentieth the maximum weight in
middle life; that during the first year
after birth the increment of weight is
about one-tenth of all that is added
subsequently, and that between the
fifteenth and twentieth years more is
added to the weight than during any
other flve-year period of life. How
ever, Individual instances differ so
widely that very little reliance can be
placed in the results he obtained.
That Quartelet's statistics of weight
were incomplete and unsatisfactory is
shown by the fact that he did not de
