AYTHERS can bring you up careful
V- y; can five you equipment arid
education, but at the end there is but
one power that decree? for or atrainst
our Furce&s, and that is yourself.
Stevenson Mid. "One man I had to
make pood. Myself. All others I have
to make happy if 1 can."
Yourself is your direct point of
contact with the world and those
about you. Yourself is the point that
needs study and adjustment because
the world by all the laws of physics
and metaphysics is bound to react up
on you as you affect it.
Were it not for the real serious
business of training and bringing the
bost out of yourself, the business of
bringing happiness out of this world
would be automatic.
As the world has grown complex,
more and more study of the relation
of each individual to his surroundings
has been tiecessarv.
There are certain qualities that be
long to you yourself. Your most de
voted friend cannot force them or
yon. Your most relentless enemy can
not take them away. They are a free
gift of your inheritance.
If your birth his been niggardly
witn tnese qualities, then all your
life you work to disadvantage, but if
yourself be mostly of the right spirit,
you will triumph anyway.
There art unfortunate, ill-born
souls who come into the world with
their heritage of self-mastery stolen
from them. They are foredoomed to
be a drain on humanity and a burden
to their feHowmen. They may have
many gifts of brilliancy and power,
but they are like a fine and delicate
machine that cannot be co-ordinated
into productive power.
This is an sge of attempt to study
oneself with the idea of making one
self of use to others. More and more
religions center on the necessity and
duty of being right-minded.
You say, superficially. My duty in
this world is to others not to my
self." The truth is, your pre-eminent
duty in this world is just to your
self. Oa!y by doing the very highest
best for yourself can you do the very
highest best for others.
No man can teach mathematics who
has not himself mastered mathemat
ics. You can only teach astronomy so
far as you have studied the story of

Emerson said that the best thing a
boy got out of college was a room
Every wise man, like the wise mer
chant, knows where he stands because
he knows the worth of pause for in
voice. Take stock of yourself. If on
reviewing your shelves you find your
stock of consideration for others be
low, or your jars of generosity be
empty, get more of these commodities
in your siorehouse. You need them

THE TEST OF GOOD MANAGE
MENT. DL'RIED in dry statistics of the De
partment of Commerce lie facts in
connection with the packing industry
that may bring pause to those dis
posed to hasty criticism. While the
whole sory of this industry is not
told sufficient facts are disclosed to
show that the packers have not had
such a rosy tiire during the year
lft.il. It appet-rs that the value of
the products of wholesale slaughter
ers amounted to t2.2"0,942.000 in 1&21
as compared with $441,000 for
the year a decrease of 46 per
cent. True the btuine? increased 33
per cent over the sven year period,
but a sudden slump in one year of
approximately $2,000, 000 .000 presents
a financial and economic problem of
sufficient proportion to throw the
best managed business in the world
out of gear.
It is a remarkable tribute to the
manafment of the packing industry

of rising prices, perhaps at timat
they may have been justif.ed, but that
they received the protection of some
very able business brains remains un

while this newspaper fighting always
the public interest is ever ready
to throw the light of publicity on con-1
d it ions when they appear to be
vicious, it is equally fearless and
equally pleased to offer a word of
praise when it is so obviously de
served, as it is in this ease.
THE COST OF Ol'R LOCAL IM
PROVEMENTS. From all parts of the country come
reports of great activity in towns and
villages in the matter of public im
provement, Nothing could be more
encouraging providing the problem is
sensibly attacked, but if your villages
begin to run wild and act without
proper perspective of finance then
many of them are brewing serious
trouble. Taxation is on the jump al
most everywhere. The amount of
taxes now paid by the American peo
ple is larger than the whole foreign
trade of the United States. The sum
total of taxation is four times as
great as the American profit on all
In Germany is heard the cry that '
taxation has brought utter ruin to the
people. We hear the echo from France,
and also from England. Let us not
forget that the law of economics is
not national. It is universal. Ameri
ca cannot escape the effect of ex
change taxation any more than can
Great Britain or the benighted Chock
tongs of Passamaquaddy.
The business of the world today
needs more capital than ever. The
trouble is the man on the street does
not grasp the first rules of national
With restricted capital business
cannot expand. It requires more
money to harvest and market a hun
dred acre crop than it does a ten acre
crop and if American industry is to
expand and prices be kept within the
normal, liquid capital and legitimate
credit must be increased. We cannot
have our cake and eat it. If the mon
ey of the nation is spent because of
a sudden craze for improvements
something else will have to go by the
STEERING Bt" SIN EN S3 SHIPS TO
FRED P. MANN is a dry goods mer
chant in Devil's Lake. North Da
kota. He sells a half million dollars'
worth of goods every year in a town
of five thousand population. He has
built his business from nothing. His
capital has been intelligence. He
stands today an inspiration for any
small town merchant who seeks to
build a paying business on a sound
There are thousands of merchants
who flop along without &nT definite
aim except an instinctive desire to
accomplish. These are the merchan
dising derelicts. The ship that reaches
port in time to win the cargo is one
that is steered with a definite pur
pose and along a course thoroughly
Mr. Mann frankly says his success
is one of two things sensible buying
and vigorous newspaper advertising.
He spends more money in newspaper
advertising than any small merchant
in the United States. The answer is
he dpes more business than any small
merchant in the United States.
Half the local merchants in small
towns see in advertising nothing but
typographical announcements. The
money they waste in direct by mail
advertising is astounding. There is
not a skilled advertising man in the
whole of the United States who uses
direct-by-mail advertising except as
a supplement to the newspaper. With
out the newspaper the rest is useless.
If we fail to learn by the experience
of others who have succeeded then
we fall behind in the march of prog
ress. John Wanamaker, Marshall Field
and Fred P. Mann are not fools. Hitch
your wagon to a star, not to a doubt
ONCE we knew a man in far away
India who for more than thirty
years had not spoken to a human
soul. His last words were that it
was better to think and do things
than to waste time talking; more
over he believed nobody ever had
said anything of lasting value. It
would be a strange world if all of
us just shut up and talked through
our actions. Gee, how lonely it
would be. Lots of thing might be
accomplished that are now left un
done, but we'd miss that human
contact that seems to make the
whole world kin. And it isn't true
that nothing has been said of last
ing value. There are three ever
lasting words that stand as the
foundation of human happinss and
development: Love one another.
We don't need to talk a great deal
if we say something.
