REVERENCE FOR GREAT WRITERS.
I wish to give you a hint about reading. All the
great writers should be approached with a certain
reverence. That is, you should say, “There is some
thing great about them whether I see it or not; I
mast try to see what it is.” If you do not see i:,
try again. You may ultimately fail. Few people ara
so large-minded as to admire all that is admirable,
and sham admiration is dishonest. But in that case,
blame yourself for the failure, and turn all the more
earnestly to study what you do admire—what you do
see the beauty of. When you read criticisms ask
yourself, “Do I agree with this?” and, if not, find
out your reasons. I want you so much to think for
yourself—to be not presumptuous but independent
in your judgment. And I should like you to fall in
love with some great writer. That is the true lib

Every alert business corporation sets aside an
annual fund to provide against depletion. From a
mine coal is taken, leaving just that much less coal
The supply is never inexhaustible.
Some day the end of the vein or veins will be
reached and there will be no more coal mine.
New mines must be found—much money spent
in the hunt for them.
If they cannot be found, the company must go
out of business.
So the depletion fund is maintained so that at
the end of a certain period the operations of a cer
tain number of years will have shown a profit.
There are many businesses which, as far as can
be seen at present, will continue on indefinitely.
But the machinery must be kept up, there must
be provision for the constant training of new men to
step in and do the work when others die or lose their
Too often the individual suffers steady depletion
without any provision for replacement and repairs.
If he remains in good health he can continue to
work for a long time—for the mind will remain
healthy if it is kept in good condition and housed in
a healthy body.
There are many men and women who are worth
more to themselves and to the world at 60 than they
were at 40.
But they are exceptions.
Energy is hard to keep up after the years are
And unless some sort of fund is maintained for
depletion there is nothing to look forward to save
dependent old age, one of the most terrible things in
Of late doctors are teaching people to provide
against physical depletion, to keep their minds in
sound bodies so that they will still be earners in old
To do both, to lay away a little against accidents
or illness and still to keep sufficiently healthy, to
keep on working to the end, is the best way.
Cooperation between the banker and the doctor
in teaching people to care for themselves and their
money is doing a great deal toward removing the ter
rors from old age and thus is increasing human
BE SLOW TO TAKE OFFENSE
The bigger a person is, figuratively speaking, the
slower he is to take offense. One who is always get
ting angry with one acquaintance and then another
proves how small he is. Some persons take offense so
easily that their friends are always hurting them in
one way or another without intending to. It is un
derstood among their acquaintances that they must
be handled carefully—like dynamite.
The hardest work in the world is that which ac
complishes least. It is natural law that the larger
the result, the less must be the work. Less efl'ort,
less time, with more efficiency, gets double and treble
the production of wealth for use. Work should be
measured not by the motions it makes, but by what
it gets done.
