Reaching the clergyman's manse, ac companied by his wife carrying the baby, he inquired if the minister were at home. He was informed by the maid-ser vant that he was fishing, but would be back soon. "He may come back when he likes," said the gardener, "but na« fishin' min ister will bapteeze ma bairn." They proceeded to another manse, and found the minister was out shoot ing.

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 9 May 1914

FAILURES DUE TO LAZINESS. "The two main causes of failure in " iife," said an observant business man, "so far as I have studied the ques tion, are incompetence and laziness. "The first is, of course, not, as a role, a matter in which the sufferer can be held responsible. If a man be lacking' in natural judgment and ability then he must g) under, al though even here hones ~.y, persever ance and industry would do much to atone for the lack of natural gifts. "But laziness is by far the most pro lific parent of failure. It is responsible for the lack of ambition, and It is largely the cause of bad habits and dissipation. It is the lazy men who .drink, gamble and neglect opportuni ties. It is they who are extravagant, because the extravagant man is too lazy to save. The active, energetic | fellow is saved from these vices by his disposition, and could not become a failure so long as he retained his , normal character." I
