The best part'(What is more pitiful than poverty  Of • iifê $i™e is frequently -wasted trying ie sel^i. or .adapt ones self to, a ,business or rocitips. A man  In EnglanC Germany, Australia and New Zealand they have Old Age pension la^, and recently an attempt was made to pass such legls-Jgtlon' in Fiance. There is iftuch to iaW i)Qib fQF »nd against legislation. Uhdewbiedly m»ay people, who have been useful ibers of the community, suffer from poverty and neglect, and through no willful fault of their own. They (become a burden upon relatives, or upon the state, or county. If, under our present system public aid Is extended, it carries with it the brand of pauperisrm, causing the bene£ic}ftrjr tfi /pel thftf l^st §&)■§ are in disgrace, asiU that bte ^  dishonored. Of course It la the duty of every one to look atead and pHh t\ide for that fateful rainy day, or the helpless years of age, but often fall short of our aims, despHe  we  who has enjoyed a tree choice m&J stUl doubt if he chose wisely, especially if be failsr of the degree of sue« icees he anticipated. And a man is about as apt to be guided by his whims and co^fielts. :as bf a°y i*^) aptitudes, in making his <±oice. On %he other hand, many «aen j>ity themselves, all their lives because necessity, and not Inclination, decided thei •alesi.i®? of a business or occupation, trhey ars SUT^ they were fitted for something higher, and nobler. And right here let the vocational director beware. Parents also have fond i4e»l8 for their children, and to be .^Id AifemOB should he trained 4or a ;ca.rpe^tey nfbfn th»y tJW>«Sbt he iwould at lejjst feecpm^ B^h^, ©r hat Elizabeth Ann w^l find ^T greatest success and usefulness as a housewife when they had dreamed 9Ut for her a career of music and palutlug,.g«d general social triumphs, «imply :spells trout4«.

Prt^bly tlie most fortimat« of all Is tbe man raised up in bis father's business, and who succeeds him. or sets up for himself in the same liae, after bis natural apprenticeship of fUlal doty. And ordinarily the boy .whO(, ^vin^ the opportunity, fails to do this, presuming the ftatlier is a «rorthy man. and his trade a good <me. deaerves to b« sought out t>y t^e fookkiller. Success is not so eas of attainment that a man. during his Aort life bf business or professiooal activity, can afford to lose much time or maks many false starts.
