Yon can do whatever you set out to do. The fact that yon set out to do anything means that you are able to do it. yon entered this contest, and you entered to win. You haven't given up.the idea of sure. But you can argue yourself out of success in anything. If the negative impulse predominates in your make-up, you're lost. This contest resembles the.battle of life to a great extent. It's a fight, and it will be a long time, before civilization will make life possible wihout All this has been written with a "text' 'in mind. It is "Get the Sub- scriptions" You.airo your own master in this respect. No matter where you live, what you do, who you are, you can get the subscriptions. You may think others can get them easier than you. Thats what the unsuccessful man or woman thinks of the successful man or woman in any line of endeavor in this world. Look Into the history of any man who ever did anything that cuts him out of the bunch of humanity. You may say he has money, opportunity, friends at court, had good luck', born with brains, hid a chance, etc. After you have taken stock of these things which appear o nthe sur- at the man. You'll find the lines of work In his face. No amount of money ever made any man great, the fine opportunities made any man famous, the most favorable environment never pro- duced a genius or a master of men. If these things are true, (here would be only two kinds of people in the class of mental aristocrats with all the money and brains, rest of the world ot nonentities. Break away from, the the get the most of you will win. The first thing to do is to tell yourself you can do it and you are al- ready a winner. You can't .lose if yon will convince yourself that you can work accordingly.

Why Is itito the fanners 'then that the dotlrtne could make were at a nominal price, headway as it did in tho U.

Perhaps the following might explain it. Tho history of the movement in the States, where it succeeded in converting almost entire states, is significant und Interesting. Take, for instance, Minnesota, which perhaps furnishes the best example.

The meat combine took note of the change and resolved that scmethins must be done to check the farmers iu breeding to dairy sires. The edict then came from tbe packers that all showing 'dairy markings must eumed than the dairy steer, for all j the Wisconsin experiment station in j farnu-ra of the state of Minnesota not; the butter from that1 special dairy less than Perhaps this cow that produces 1150 pounds in a example might make people sit jind take notice.
