READ WITH A PURPOSE

Reading without purpose is sauntering not exercise. More is got from one book on which the thought settles for definite end in knowledge than from libraries skimmed over by a wandering eye. EDWARD Bulwer.

BE PREPARED

From an interview with the man under forty who rose from truck-boy to president of a $10,000,000 manufacturing concern:

"Too many of our young men have a fixed idea that opportunity must be thrust upon them, and at the same time do nothing to prepare themselves for grasping it when it comes. In spite of the fact that our company has refused to go outside for its officials and has promoted men from the ranks, we have had case after case where we actually tried to thrust promotion upon men who were apparently ambitious, but who had left themselves unprepared. Before the chance came they complained because it was not handed to them on a silver tray, and when it did come they were unable to grasp it." -WALTER C. ALLEN, President Yale & Towne Lock Co.
