General Grant, when he actually diJ
as he said, “I will fight it out on this
line if it takes all summer,’ became a
striking example of perseverance. The
man who' perseveres wins the victories,
and readies the goals of life. Think of
Edison and Burbank—they knew no
such word as discouragement in their
scheme of life. What most men cail
fa,ilure is to them a lure which echocs
persistently in their hearts; ‘‘Trv
Jignin! try again!’’
It is not enough to' start going, you
have to keep on going. If you give
up when yon are tired or when the sun
is hot,, you will never be a winner in
the marathon race of life. It is not
the fellow' who runs the fastest, or the
fellow who boasts the loudest, that
makes the goal; it is tlie fellow who
keeps going. The boy who says, im
patiently, ‘‘Oil, I can’t solve that prob
lem!” after one insignificant round
with a hard lesson in mathenitaics is
in a fair way to be sidetracked for life
on the can’t!’’ switch. What satis
faction there is in solving a hard prob
lem, either in mathematics or in life,
find tlicn drawing a long breath, and
saying: ‘^Xow let me have a cra-ck at a
bigger problem! ’ ’
Life is not a nieny-go-round; you
liave to stand still in one place and
finish one job before you begin another.
Here is a man cutting down trees. Does
lie turn from one to another, striking a
random blow here and there? No, he
strikes blow upon blow in the same,
place; he conquers one tree at a time;
tlien straightens his back and tackles
the next tree.
It takes great perseverance to at
tain great skill in any line; to' be
come a line mechanic, skillful physician,
great artist or musician, Persevprance
is more essential than genius. Some of
the brightest men that I have known
arc misera])le failures; they, have no
perseverance; they change their plans
as a chameleon changes color; they
commence in tlie morning but they stop
before quitting time. Such men never
receive checks of any size.
Persevei'ance is a Christian virtu?.
You can become a Christian in a mo
ment, but the virtues tliat make up th.:
well rounded, useful Christian life nuisl
be acquired by perseverance, faithfu^
continuance in well-doing, "iou can
not put on a Christian virtue^ns you put
on a shirt; you acquire it by repeated
effort. Anything worth having is worti.

Woodrow Wilson was a lover of
books. He knew books. Probably no
man in the world was better prepared
to judge the value of a book than he.
He read thousands of books. He wrote!
books. The literature of the ages was
at his fingers’ tips. Nobo'dy, not even
his bitterest enemies, ever qaestioned
Afr. Wilson’s knowledge of literature.
But when Woodrow Wilson came
down to the end of the journey, ho
wanted only one book. The correspoi
(lent of the Associated Press discov
ered that fact and told it to the world
for the first time as follows:
‘Til the bed chamber chamber close
beside liim on a little table lay a well
worn volume—the Bible—from which
he never failed to read a passage be
fore going to bed.
In answer to those who would de
bate, is it not enough to hold up the
well-worn Bible ^of Woodrow Wilson?
