When business is just as good as it can be, and
if you had any more you would be obliged to work
all night as well as all day, that is what constitutes
success. Success means fame, and fame means
public endorsement and dollars. Sometimes people
work for dollar.s and sometimes for fame, but gen-
erally for the latter first ; but it is not fatal, for
they get over that. The Notman Photo. Co.,
whose studio is at the end of the board walk, are
famous. Try them and you will know why.

Gratitude is a fruit of great cultivation ; you
find it among gross people.

Tile gratitude of most men is hut a secret desire
of receiving greater benefits.
Tlie gr.-ititnde ol iiliice-exiiectauts is a lively sense

,S'//- liobrrt Walpole.
The still small voice of gratitude.
AMON(i the lifieen thousand W(u-
or euiued liy Sliukcspeare, (he word grati-
tude appears hut four times. He therefore had
very little use tor it evidently, while ingratitude is
frequently iii evidence.
We have given some half dozen (piot.'itions fi'oni
the most crudile writers to introduce this suliject,
but really there is small comfort to be gotten from
any of them.
Webster savs gratitude is "a warm and friendly
feeling toward a benefactor," from the Latin
From the manner in which the word was used
by these early writers, it would appear that grati-
tude was considered so infrequently exhibited as to
call for sarcasm on their part, and not sufficiently
common to call for praise.
It is therefore no new thing to have a fling at
There is nn adage, something to the etlect that

If the world were judged by the exceptions tliat
come to the surface, it would probably be a pretty
poor kind of a world, but we are of the opinion
that the entire sea is not all foul, because of the
derelicts that float upon the surface.
If every notable example of gratitude were
accorded the headlines that those of ingratitude
receive, the former would probably outnumber the
Whatever is customary with the great majority
is called the fashion, or fad, and to ridicule grati-
tude is fashionable, but everything lluit is fashion-
able is not of necessity right.
We have kncjwn instances of gratitude that are
untenable, but if they are not accorded while
marks in the book of fate, they at least will ofl'set
some very black ones.

Gratitude is sometimes leopard-like, and ap]icars
in spots; some spots larger than others, and
between spots there are lapses ; naturally, or there
would not be spots.
The gratitude of some people is spectacular,
whether intentional or otherwise, and exhibits
itself wluie it will receive a return, but the man or
woman in whose nature gratitude springs spon-
taneously can lie discerned as easily as a gold coin
from a brass one, and has the same relative value.

visited India, and went to Agra ; suppose you
went to England, and visited London ; and on
your return from these phices you were asked
about tlie Venus de Jlilu, the Taj Mahal, and the
Tower of London, and you were forced hi honesty
to reply that when you were in these various places
you did not see either of tiiose interesting features,
wiiat would your intelligent inquirer thiuk of you?
Now that is a serious question.
Duriug the winter season, Boston, New York,
Philadelphia, Pittsburg, Cliicago, and some other
cities hold very excellent exhibitions of paintings.
Were you invited to a private view on the night
before the opening to the paying public, you would
doubtless accept and find much to enjoy.
Whose pictures would von be quite sure to find
there? Why, Tarbell, Volk, Hensoii. Ueckwilh,
Brown, Du MdiuI, Woodbury, Foster, Weir,
Enneking, Saxton, Kronberg, Jones, Chapnum,
Hassam, Gallison, Hale, Fry, Franzen, Currier,
