It is lecause it is intended that

The putting-off habit will kill
the strongest initiative. Too moch
caution and lack of confidence are
fatal enemies of initiative. How
much easier it is to do a thing

when the purpose impels us, when
enthusiasm carries us along, than
when everything drags in the post
ponement! One is drugery, the
Hungtring and striving aftej
knowledge is what makes a scholar;
hungering and striving after virtue
is what makes a saint: hungering
and striving after action is what
makes a hero and a man. The
great successes we see everywhere
are hut the realization of an intense
longing, a concentrated effort.
Everybody is gravitating tdward
his aim just: in proportion to the
power and intensity of his desire,
ami his struggle to realize it.
One merely "desires" to do this
or that, or "wishes" he could, or
"would be glad" if he could. An
other knows lierfectly well that,
if he lives he is going to do the
thing he sets his heart on if it is
within the limits of human iwi
bility. We do not hear him whin
ing Ijecause nobody will pay his
to college. He does not say he
"wishes" he could go. He says,
"I am going to preare myself for
a great life-work. I have faith in
my future. I have made a vow to
myself to succeed, and I am going
to do so on a broad-gauge plan.
I am not going to start out half
equipied, half fitted."
When you find a boy who re
solves within himself that, come
what will, he is going to do the
thing he sets his heart on, and
that there are no "ifs" or "buts"
or "amis" aliout it, you may be
sure he is made of winning stuff.
How do you approach a difficul
ty if lo you hesitate before it,
dread it, ixxstKne it, dawdle over
it if Are you afraid of it? Do
vou go to it with an apologetic,
doubtful "Will do if I can," or
"Will try-attitude? Or do you
approach it with an unH inching
determination, and the conscious
ness of mastery?
A great aim is a powerful pro
tection to a youth. It frees him
from multitudes of temptations
which otherwise would be likely
to sweep him into the vice current.
A man with an overmastering
puriose is a great elevating, ener
gizing iower in a community.
People know better than to try to
waste his time or trifle with him.
His uroiectile force shows them
that he is dead in eannest, that he
has an object in life, and that he
purjioses to gain it. His face is
set like a Hint towards his aim.
Obstacles melt lefore such a pur
ose. Tlie power of a mighty purpose
to clear up a cloudy, misty life, to
scatter the fogs, and to oicn up a
way when there seems to lc none,
is a daily miracle. We see it il
There is something about stead
iness of punose, nlxnit sticking to
one's aim, and working by a fixed
programme, that steadies all forces
of one's character and buttresses
the jiower to achieve.
The Antagonizing Period.
Richmond comes to the front
with oTTe of those calf-brain affairs
a case of where a young man
old enough to know lietter tried
to kill the girl he thought he loved
because, she threw him. Failing
to kill her he turned the pistol on
himself and, unluckily,' escajied
death. Whenever we read of a
fool who wants to kill the woman
he prof esses to love it occurrs to
us that a guardian should le ap
jiointcd. The man who loves a
woman will light for her, will lie
for her will Jie for her. and
there is no way around it. init
tlie cub who wants to kill her if
she, refuses to marry him, and who
is willing in his desjeration, to
kill himself, is a weakling, a liar
and coward. He should Iks allow
to shoot away at himself until he
accomplishes the result.
. Generally shaking these emo
tional lovers are warmed over.
They will soon forget, and when
a woman hears a man threaten to
kill himself if "she refuses to wed
him, the best thing she can do is
to see to it that he shoots. Hut if
he threatens, in the meantime, to
kill her, she should bo ready with
a jiolice call and have him arrested
for attempting at murder. Adov
er's quarrel and a sapling vho
wants to shoot is not to be con
sidered in the same class.

that much sympathy will go out

No doubt of that
the thief who steals must be pun-

The Home and Boys
There arc certain forces at work
in modern life which endanger tlie
home's influence as it seeks to re
alize the social welfare of boys.
One of the worst enemies of the

In many skillful ways appetites
are being created. Health officers

He was referring to a group of
loys, shown on the screen shooting
eraps in a dirty alley in lower
New York. I Ie could ha :e made
the same statement had he thrown
on the screen familiar scensof pala
tail parlors on Fifth Ave. Gam
bling is gambling whether the
gambler appears in rags or rich
raiment, live on the llowery or
the boulevard. Tlie boy who gam
bles or who sees gambling in the
slum or the suburb, in the city or
the country, is robbed of the fun
damental conception of social wel
fare. Selfishness, the essence of
gambling, is at the core of all so
cial disorder. The boy who grows
up into that citizenship, the center
of which is selfishness, whether he
live in the slum or theuburb, is
a dangerous memljer of society.
The gambling spirit is world
wide and age wide, in many forms
and many degrees, from "base
ment den" to Monte Carlo, from
"pitch pennies" on Halsted St. to
pitching millions on Wall St.
A boy will often gamble who
would not touch a cigarette, al
though in their aggravated forms
these two are Siamese twins. The
harm of it all does not enter his
mind. Every boy at some time in
his travels through the land of
boydom is a prospector, a risker,
a gambler. It is for the home to

through life The most discour
aging thing about it all is that he
often gets his start at home or at
some church fair. The serious
ouestion in view of the lioy's so
cial welfare is this, Will the home
light or foster this evil?
Vicious literature, in the
of the "penny

counterteracts the teaching of
many good homes by poisoning the
mind of the boy, inflaming his pas-

sions, and vmaiing nis wuowvicw
of life. Kvery parent who has his
welfare of his Ijoys at heart will
protest most vigorously against
the vile stuff and seek proper men
and measures for its destruction.
He will do more; hie will see. that
good, wholesome standard, books
adapted to the age and activity of
boys be put into the home -and
public librarie?s. Great care
should le used in the selection of
books for boys. Boy specialists
rather than liooksellers should le
consulted. Good iieople often
wonder .why good boys do not
read -good lxxks in the average
Sunday-school library. One boy
gave the answer by saying cop
cerning a book, "It's no good
'cause it tells of a sissy kid what
died and went to heaven. The
normal red-blooded loy wants
neither the book which tells of the
"gqody-goody" boy, nor of the
boy who gets rich quick.' While
all' immoral books are bad, riot all
bad lxxks are immoral.
The bad book is worse than a
bad companion. A bad compan
ion may move away or die, but
the evil book abides and works
like hidden leaven. Slum boys
and stable boys are not the only
ones who pursue the poisoned
page. The country boy and city
bov, rich boy and poor boy are all
liable to infection. - If the. attics
of "brown stone fronts" could all
at once become vocal with the se
crets they hold, a San Francisco
shock would startle the inditfer
nnce of some of the best parents.
YVhatsort of a citizen the loy
will make depends largely on the
books he reads, certainly on the
ideals he ,forms. No lioy will live
hotter than his ideals. To look
through the pages of a lxxk into
a world of corrupt morals is to
live on the same plane.
