Sam Jones of Hobbs, N. M., sends in his re
newal and sends along the following bit of
philosophy he picked up somewhere:
The certainty that life cannot be long, and
the probability that it will be shorter than na-
ture allows, ought to awaken every man to the
active prosecution of whatever he is desirous to
perform. It Is true that no diligence can insure
success. Death may intercept the swiftest ca-
reer. But he who is cut off in the execution
of an honest undertaking has at least the honor
of falling In his rank and has fought the battle
though he missed the victory.
