SUCCESS Many Ebbs and Floods in the Tides of Every Life If I were called upon to assist in preparing a young mans mind for success in life should begin by ask- ¬ ing him to forget the Shakespearean aphorism forit is as false in metaphor as it is in principle The tides of the theydo iner who misses a flood tide doe not abandon his voyage nor docs he de ¬ liberately sail into the shallows or indulge in miseries He simply watches for the next flood The tide in the affairs of men also ebbs and slows many times during the average lifetime It follows that if there is any logical analogy between the two tides the lesson to be thrived is full of hope and not of despair It teaches that if through the mistakes of in ¬ experience the first flood tide is missed the iiextis equally available Having taught a young man to for- ¬ get Shakespearean fallacy I would first labor to impress upon his mind the true meaning of success in this life To that end I should teach him that every child of God has a mission to perform and that mission hesolivesthatwhen trulHrrhe can world is better for my having lived This is suc ¬ cess in the highest and best sense of the word It may or may not be accompanied by an accumulation of wealth for under this rule the mil- ¬ lionaire may prove a dismal failure while the humblest may achieve a bril ¬ liant success even thoughit may con ¬ sist in

magazine has shown in a brief and sensible way thatsignaling to Mars is beyond the power of human resources The au ¬ thority of this eminent astronomer asserts the Portland Oregonian af ¬ fords satisfaction to those of us who suspect certain scientists of pander ¬ ing to sensationalism find notoriety It is also very improbable even if there are intelligent beings on Mars that they could send a signal to ue which we could detect That there is life on the surface of our neighbor planet Sir Robert does not dispute nor is he prepared to controvert the theory that the lines called canals are the work of an arti ¬ ficial agency But by several practical illustrations he shows the absolute absurdity of receiving signals with our present instruments of observa- ¬ tion or of creating a disturbance on this planet Such as could be seen by the Martians unless they have telescopes far beyond the power of ours The atmosphere which densely ev velops the earth is in itself enough to baffle their efforts to study our planet or to receive a signal from us Our difficulty in penetrating the gaseous vapors of Jupiter 100 Si > v- i rq f f
