The surest way to mako money Is to save money and use what you sanv Don't be afraid of long hours or oitn stant attentlin to your work. Work can be made a joy, an econ omy, a pleasure, if you combine an object worth while with the deter mined ambition to win.

Any young man can got rich, can succeed in busllless, if he saves; it he has a definite and honest purpose and is so filled with the purpose that work ceases to be a hardship and be. comes a privilege. Look at things with optimism In your heart. Go Into small business and work to make it Into a big one,
