It is better to hitch your wogan to a star than halter
it to a stone.—Brenham Press.
It is still better to do neither of the two; in fact,
to not stop long enough to "hitch" to anything. Just
«it tight and keep a driving.
QeburneChronicle: There are two kinds of girls
in the world—the girl who works and the girl who
gads. Commend us to the former. Work lends dig-
nity to a pretty girl, is an added charm to her, com-
bines the useful and the ornamental.4 She might gad
about, roll on sofas, gossip and read story books, but
if she prefers to be some account in the world and
goes out as stenographer, teacher, saleslady or house-
keeper, bravely makes her own way—such are the salt
of the earth and of such is the kingdom of heaven.
Dallas News: Girls have been praised and scolded
in all generations. The girl who works cheerfully,
hopefully, intelligenty, is an ornament and an honor
to her sex. All girls, the rich, the unrich and the near-
rich, should be taught to become of some account in
the world and in their homes, and the most of them
•re so trained. Look at the blooming matrons and the
flowering husbands on your streets for proof.
Excuse us for butting in; but after all, in the fi-
nal analysis, doesn't it depend altogether on the girl?
' One of the oldest proverbs in the English lan-
guage is "All is not gold that glitters." John Lyd-

that our esteemed Temple contemporary is mistak*

la Venice a guide, discussing with an American
tourist the sights which should be seen by a stranger,
said as if without fear of contradiction : *0f course,

Samuel Gompers once got into an argument with
a banker. At the end of one of the banker's asser
tions Mr. Gompers retorted, gayly: "Yes, it is pos
sible to say a good word for almost any state of
things, isn't? I remember once, in a very untidy
chop-house in Syracuse, hearing a guest exclaim, as
he took up a soiled bill of fare: 'By jove, what an
excellent idea—samples of the various dishes glued
to the menu.'"—Exchange.

IS YOUR BUSINESS RUN BY SAIL
OR BY STEAM?
Anybody can sell goods during flush times, when
people arc earning lot* of money and spending it
The real te$t of a merchants business quailty is
his ability to win and hold a profitable patronage
during dull times when people are earning smaller
wages and are counting their dollars-
It is in such time that we learn whether a busi-
ness house is operating under sail or steam. The
house that moves snder sail, in the old, careless fash-
ion, can carry a small business cheaper, in good times,
than the house that drives forward under the pres-
sure of skillful advertising. The sailing house sav-
es the cost of newspaper publicity, or spends but
little in that way, end with careful management in
other respects can, during favorable weather, ma|ce
The superiority of the new method, that of mov-
ing under st$tm instead of sail, becomes instantly
apparent when the wind shifts, or falls away, or
when heavy weather comes. The ship owner knows
that if it takes a thousand tons of coal to drive his
vessel over her route in fair weather, it will take
more coal to send her over the route in heavy wea-
ther. It is precisely this fact that has been grasp-
ed by the merchant who runs his business by steam
instead of sail. He advertises liberally during good
ry or two afterward, and he wrote it in the "Mer times, framing his announcements to the
chant of Venice, "AH is not gold that glistens." j standardizing his business in the public's mind. He

lection of that quotation. Some Boston paper, I statement put forth in the newspaper announce-
lt was ston Baked Beans, offered a tour ments. He advertises in good times as much to cre-
nround the world to the man. woman or child who
could give the exact quotation and original author.
In order to get on the world tour a man was sup-
posed to go out and hustle up a lot of subscribers
far the Baked Beans of Boston. I thought I had the
tear of the world grabbed, so I bit like a sucker
nome four or five dollars' worth. It is needless to
•ny that I did not make that trip around the world.
I received a very complimentrary letter from the
editor of the Boston Baked Beans telling me how near
I came to getting the prize trip.
Therefore you can understand how I feel about
"All is not gold that glistens."—New Orleans Mora-
ate a store standard as to hasten sales. When dull
days come he puts on more setam, uses more space,
and uses it with finer discretion than before. He
does this because he knows the people are still wil-
ling and able to buy his wares, but must be shown
sound specific reasons for doing it right then.
While the old time merchant who uses little space
and uses it clumsily, because he don't wish to pay
an expert for preparing it, is making slow or no pro-
gress under sail, the modern-minded, progressive
merchant moves steadily forward tinder steam, and
he it is who is able to report, when the period of dull
times has passed, that his sales and profits held up

Special to The Telegram:
La rod a. Feb. SBy—Thirty people
are reported to have been Injured In
tha derailment of an excursion train
carrying a number of northern tour-
ists at Orvllle last night, twelve mil-
es north of Laredo. Several cars
were thrown from the track and pil-
ed up In a ditch. The Pullman cars,
however, remained on the track. The
excursionists are from Toledo, Ohio.
The first report gave rise to a rumor
that tha wrecked train was a special
on which John W. Gates of New York
tha capitalist, had been traveling
through the South. It Is learned,
however, that the John W. Gates par-
ty arrived at Beaumont, Texas, last
night. la addition to Toledo people
on the wrecked train there were a
number of passengers from Chicago
and San Antonio. The derailment Is
said to have been caused by a broken
axle on the locomotive.
