During the last few years Congress has appropriated money to assist the States in cleaning out the dreaded dis case among cattle.

"Peddle 'em as though they were ap ples," said an editor to a trembling, sentimental girl who offered him her manuscript, with the air of a convict about to receive the death sentence. "If one man does not want your apples another will. Don't be afraid of me or anybody else." Carry yourself with a self-confident air, as though you really believed in yourself, and you will not only inspire others with a belief in your ability, but you will also come to believe in your self. A keen observer can pick out a suc cessful man on the street by the way he carries himselt. If he is a leader. every step. every movement indicates it; there is assurance in his hearing: he walks as if he were master of him self, as if he believed in his ability' to do things, to bring about results. His self-confident air is an index of the success he has attained. Men and women who succeed in their undertakings are those who get their ...
