President Swain of Indiana University delivers the commencement address on quot the elements of a successful the following is an abstract i do not mean by successful life the attaining of wealth position Fame Power but the cultivation of those faculties and gifts which god has Given us and the use of these cultivated faculties and gifts in a life of service. Success in life demands the training of the intellect. It is said that education does not make a Man better morally. It 1.s True that education consists in the development and strengthening of what is a read in the personality. You cannot develop from a Grain of seed anything l it that which is already in Embry o in the seed. The conditions for the growth Mui to be favourable or there will be no development from the germ. So it is with the human being. Unless conditions fax fat Rabl to the growth of the intellect Are Rovid a the natural fruits of intelligence Are not of nature s Laws. The successful Man must ally himself with nature s Laws and apply himself with Diligence quot Jne gods of labor give us All Good without labor in general Man can secure nothing which abides. A May find a Placer mine which yields untold wealth but the reat mines of Gold Are Down deep in the mountains. To secure it requires time labor and skill. It is not fortunate to be quot born with a Silver spoon in one s on the other hand difficulties will crush the fainthearted. It is the overcoming of difficulties which always brings strength. The intellect should be cultivated but culture of the intellect alone is not sufficient. Quot in one important respect quot says Charles Kendall Adams quot character differs from every other elements it is the Only element of Success which is strictly within individual of character. We see about us so much of wickedness vice so much that drags men from their estate in the image of their maker that we Are prone la trite in not valued in the world. In reality Tulip Ever As our civilization grows the estimate on character becomes greater and greater. How common it is for a Man to stand much higher in the minds of the people than any catalogue of his deeds Whf warrant one cannot account for a very Large part of the estimate of popu a Jaritz placed on Washington and Lincoln the simple record of their exploits Lere is something about some men that its an expectation that outruns per quot Lance and yet that leaves us fully fied. Re can think of some Young Man of our acquaint i quot who has a Brilliant intellect is an a ref lib be companion ready of spen a to pm Atrin i of manner but who la of a not make fast friends or is not generally trusted Becaum he is believed to be lacking in of character. Illustrations of men in Public life who have failed for want of lofty Criar Acter will occur to you. No Man s Success is enduring unless he possesses sound moral principles and allies himself with nature s Laws and nature s god. Quot i think it not too much to say quot says p. Literary critic quot that in literature generally it is not great ability or great learning which succeeds but great so likewise it is not poverty that is punished but the violation of some re quire rent of Public Law or popular custom or conventionality. We demand of the creators of literature that they shall Reward the great element in Success. If it is Crue that character is the great c ement in Success we should place More fires on the development of character. We Are too Apt to be Content that we Are not violating any Law or ire living in Srch a manner As not to cause any unfavourable comment. We Start out in life with a certain Stock of moral Force which we use simply As we do our Coal Supply. Not that we do not wish to possess Good characters but we fall to cultivate character with the same persistency with which we cultivate intellect. The attainments of today Are not Sutt client for the ideals of tomorrow. The ideals of today Are too Low for the of tomorrow. Each Day should Furni. Knowledge and experience for the better tomorrow. A desire to know the truth supreme Effort to acquire it and faithfulness to the ideas and ideals we possess Are the is i ence of character. Persistent application of these principles will give a widening View of duty and a better developed wage Jarvis denies truth of Pittsburg tin plate reports. Anderson ind., aug. 9.�?the report was sent out from Pittsburg a few Days ago that the american tinplate company and the wage committee of the amalgamated Iron and steel workers had come to an agreement in regard to the scale for the coming year but that the agreement had not been signed because of the influence it might have on the settlement Between the company and the committee of the tin House men.

Recognizing imperialism As the Paramount Issue of the Campaign of 1900, or. Bryan has presented to his countrymen an argument against Empire which it is impossible to Controvert.
