ll is the iietnal experience of
i specialty his territory being t
ever did in my life from
and I hadn't made a sale
work entirely on coininisr
Mi'ii and 1 hen-tore I was out not only my time but also my traveling
v expenses. I was tired! disheartened and was ready to give up and
go home to my family where I wanted to be. It looked mighty
blue and I started to send a message to my wife telling her J was
coming home but instead of sending that .sort of message I suddenly
changed my mind and tohr her to look for me when she saw mo
coining. The next morning 1 hopped into my car again and started
out determined to sell something. When I wound up Saturday night
J footed up the biggest week's business I had done in a year."
AVhy waste words by painting the moral to adorn this simple
title? It is too plain to require the use of any bright colors lo make
it stand out clearly. f the salesman had been made of the weak
sort of stuff which succumbs to discouragement he uld have
hiked for home Thursday night and would June been a "blown-tip
sucker" as far as the week's business was concerned and it would
have been very difficult for him to gel. up the courage to go out
again the following week hut he didn't happen to he built that
way. If lie had completely lost heart be would have been a quitter
and would have lost his best week's business.
In the conditions that have conic about during the last
months business meil generally have been going through an exper-
ience very similar to that of this salesman ami doubtless many of
them have arrived at the same state of mind that possessed him on
Thursday evening when he was tempted to give it "all up as hopeless.
However the signs on the business horion indicate t'hat it is just
about Thursday in this period of depression and hence it will be a
fatal mistake for anybody to yield to discouragiuent. Note please
that the conditions met by this salesman "were the same on Friday
and Saturday that they were during the first part of the week. The
only difference was inside of himself; he had taken on h' fresh
supply of pep and determination and- shaking off his unhealthy
stale of mind he sailed in resolved to get the business and he
got it. '
The important question for the business man to put lo himself
at the present moment is: ".Am 1 a quitter or a stayer?" That
iietter days tor business are ahead is not open to question and it is
certain that they will come much sooner if every business man pur-
sues the policy followed by the salesman in 1his story. To lose heart
is to Jose tlte business lon t lorget that. To weaken is to lose out.

Mr. Taft Philosopher
A man who was once president of the United States sauntered
along the streets of Chickasha the other day unrecognized and un-
noticed; by most of the people who happened to passhim. He rub-
bered at the windows just as an ordinary human being would and
finally' he walked into a grocery store. Jle was just as much
interested in the things displayed as the average woman" with a
market basket would be and before he left he invested in a sack of
apples ami oranges.
On the evening of the same day the same man appeared before
a large audience of local people and delivered a lecture. In the
afte moon he had made a talk to the college students addressing
them as "dear girls" and giving them good advice out of his
great mind and kind heart. For the most part his talk was about
political matters. lie was glad to talk to the "dear girls." he
said and nobody doubted his sincerity because be looked what lie
Mr. 1'a ft knows life from almost every angle lie has always
been a poor man comparatively speaking and is still compelled
to work for a living lie has known all the successes that can come
to a public man and hits also tasted of the bitter cup of disappoint-
ment but he has treated both triumph and disaster as imposters and
it has made him a bigger and better man. Failure is by no means
the worst thing that can happen to one according to the philosophy
which has come out of the experiences of Mr. Taft. The man who
is down with his feet on the ground can see things more clearly
than oi.p who is up in t'i; air intoxicated with success; the former
occupies a position of adKunl ige in shaping his thinking and actions
in a way that Mill enable him to make the most of himself and be
of the greatest service to his fellow-men.
Having been taken up to a high mountain where lie beheld the
"kingdoms of the world" Mr. Taft came back a wiser man con-
vinced ihat many of the alluring prizes which men set their hearts
upon are empty baubles and really do not possess the value which;
men put upon them. Mr. Taft is a happy man now as he goes out i
doing tne work winch he lias chosen tor himself and in which he
finds his opportunity for usefulness. Unembittered by the reverses
of fortune he jests about his nps and downs and goes' in for all the
joys of a man who finds satisfaction in every-day tasks among ev-
ery-day folks. His is a fine philosophy for an ex-president or anv-

Winter Is closing down. The money of many 'nations Is vaJueless out-

remedy can come only from outside.
