One day while I was walking

made no answer. Then he said.

Once there was a prince whose
name was Robert. His father was
a king and had sent him with
some of his men to carry a mes
sage to another king. Their jour
ney was a success until they came
to a lake. There was a ferry, but
the manager said he couldn't ac
commodate them because of their
horses, but that it was only a mile
around. But the prince wouldn't
^ listen and made him take them.
M'hen they were halfway across

There is much more involved in the giving and taking of examinations than many of us are
willing to admit. It is not simply a matter of answering or failing to answer some questions,
although that is a very important matter.
Examinations test strength of character. The student whose moral backbone is strong enough
will do his own work. He will avoid suspicion in every form. On the other hand, sometimes it
happens that a student is weak, and yields to temptation.
Students, it matters little in the long years of a lifetime whether you make a 65 or an 85 on
that particular examination. It does not matter immensely what sort of character you are building
while you make that grade. Grades and individual acts are only bricks in the great structure of a
character. As men view a beautiful edifice they do not see the separate bricks nor comment up
on a single stone, but upon the whole structure. As men view your character the details will not
stand out. Remember that “trifles make perfection, but that perfection is no trifle.”
—G. B. Phillips
MID YEAR GRADUATIONS
There seems to be a feeling on
the part of some that students
who finish in the middle of the
year are disgraced. This is not
the case, for very soon there will
be a large graduation cAass 'jat
that time. This is the only solu
tion of the mid-year promotion
system. This plan provides for
every type of student, and also
for students who enter school in
the middle of the year.
Parents and students must
come to find that there is just as
much honor attached to gradua
tion at one time as at another.
There should be no crowding of
subjects nor loafing on the part
of students in order that they
may fall in with the June gradu

Some of the successful business
men of the city have been asked
to contribute something toward
the building of strong characters
in the liigh School, From time to
time the messages which they
have sent will be printed here.
The one in this issue was written
by Air, H. Smith Richardson,
President and General manager
of The Vick Chemical Co.
Since he has'''so successfully
carried out his message it should
mean more to those who read it
Air, Richardson in discussing
the qualities most essential for
Briefly, the quality which in
my opinion is most important is
expressed in the slang word
“Drive”. It is the same quality
which makes a good scrapper out
of a) little man—that makes a
football player put everything he
has got into the game—that car
ries a long distance runner over
the last hundred yards. It is the
same spirit, conciousness, or
whatever it may be, that you
see in blooded race horses or ped
igreed dogs—they do not have to
be “driven” to their taskg.
Drive is the thing which in the
business world makes a young
man do more and learn more than
exactly the job he is given. He
covers more territory than he is
actually paid for—he has an “ac-'
quiring mind”. When a chap
without drive in business comes
up against an obstacle, he con
siders that he has a perfect alibi,
sits down and rests and lets the
boss think out a way to surmount
the obstacle. The fellow with
drive, if se can’t go over, figures
out a way to “go around” the ob
stacle and presents his plan to
the boss. Drive will not take the
place of brains, but without drive,
brains are useless.
Employers are always on the
lookout for young men with this
characteristic—they are more
precious than rubies—rarer than
fine gold. They are the men who
manage our railroads, our fac
tories and our great industries.
A’ery truly \'Ours,
H. S. Richardson

Why Nobody Likes Mr.Fly
Mr. Fly, you and I
Never do agree.
You fly. and crawl, and hop
On every thing you see.
Your feet are dirty as can be,
They are never kept clean.
You wipe them on the things you
And those who eat these dirty
Are nearly always lean.
No one likes you.
Do you wonder why?
This thing then will I tell.
If people stay ’round you,
They never c an keep well.
