NEW SCHOOL BUILDING.



Work on the new Brooklyn Com-
mercial High School is progressing
rapidly. The excavations are about
finished, and work on the walls has
been begun. Ground was broken early
last May, and if the present rate of
progress is continued the contractors
will be able to make .good their word
that the building will be ready for oc-
cupancy a year from next September.

The building will be the largest and
best equipped commercial high school
in America. It will contain fifty-eight
class-rooms, an auditorium with a seat-
ing capacity of fifteen hundred, a gym-
nasium one hundred and forty-four feet
long by fifty-nine feet wide, two biolo-
gical laboratories, two physical labora-
tories with an adjoining lecture-room,
two chemical laboratories with an ad-
joining lecture-room, a museum for
commercial products, two typewriting
rooms and a busines practice room,
with wholesale and banking offices.
Messrs. Harman, Kip, Scarborough,
Keeler, Bickmore and Goldsmith are
all engaged in this school.



Through this toilsome world, alas !

Once, and only once, I pass.

If a kindness I may show,

If a good deed I may do

To any suffering fellow-man.

Let me do it while I can;

Nor delay it, for 'tis plain

I shall not pass this way again."

"Every one who sincerely wishes to
get on in the world should keep in mind
this advice of Edward Everett Hale:
"Every day converse with a superior."

All those who pass through the door
of success will find it labeled 'push.' " —

My Dear Readers :

BEFORE we settle down to the regular work of the
year, let us have a little informal chat and bring
before our minds the signiticance of the above heading.



The first word is self, the ego, the I. No system of
philosophy, religion or practical life is complete with that
one word self left out. Self has a high place, but its place
must be properly understood. This truth made one dis-
tinguished writer say, "The noblest work of God is man."
This thought makes some men conceited, but to the sensible
man it gives confidence, and everyone must have confidence
in himself. Unless a man is conscious of self, of the possi-
bilities that God has given him, he will not be able to progress,
to help himself.

Our second word is help. This may be selfish or it may
be unselfish. One should help himself that he may develop
his higher nature ; that he may better fulfill his mission in
the world, not to minister merely to his pleasure.

To get the most from the help of others, one must
thoroughly realize the right purpose of help, which is to
enable one to help himself. Help is only valuable when it
stirs up the dormant powers of a person, and leads him in
the right direction. One should not regard himself, then, as
a mere receptacle to be filled with good things by another,
who is charitably inclined, but rather a marvelous piece of
mechanism to be set in motion, and run from a motive
power within. To proceed upon the theory that one can get
through life without hard, serious work is trying to get
something for nothing, a gambling principle. Therefore, my
object in this department will be to suggest, to direct, to
encourage and to inspire ; not to fill others' minds, assuming
it to be possible, so that it may be drawn out on tap, as
some would desire. And that is the only true way one may
help another. He may be aided to help himself, and in no
other way.

Here is a tree loaded with delicious fruit, but too high to
be reached. A hungry man stands beneath its loaded branches,
longing to taste the golden fruit. I cannot carry him up the
tree, but I can give him a boost that will enable him to reach
the first limb. Then he must stretch out his arms and pull
himself up. Without this effort on his part, mine is vain.
The object of any true educator, or right-minded parent,
is to stir up self-activity. Unless this is done, atrophy and
death are the inevitable result. Some parents think they can
best help their sons by leaving them a fortune. Not so. for
a man stands for what he does and not for what another
does for him. So much for self and help.



together and the consciousness that one is not working
alone; that there are others in sympathy with him; that
there are many traveling the same road, meeting the same
difficulties, gives him heart. This fact is what I would
emphasize in taking up this department. I am ready to
assist you to help yourselves, to counsel with you, to be
your friend. And I invite personal inquiries from all self-
helping club members. Please feel free to make inquiries
about helpful books, etc.

There are many ways in which we can work together for
a common purpose. We have valuable self-help books to
which we can refer you ; and we want to organize, wherever
the Journal is read, self-help clubs. To every member of these
clubs we shall present a beautifully engraved certificate of
membership, signed by the Editor of The Journ.\l and myself.



We e.xpect a grand rally around our colors ; that the
heights of difficulties and perplexities will be passed, and that
the citadel of comradeship, co-operation, self-respect and self-
power shall be captured. Are you with us?

Let this be our motto :

BE STRONG!

Be strong!
We are not here to play, to dream, to drift.
We have hard work to do, and loads to lift.
Shun not the struggle ; face it. 'Tis God's gift '

Be strong !
Say not the days are evil. — Who's to blame?
And fold the hands and acquiesce — O shame!
Stand up, speak out, and bravely, in God's name.

Be strong !
It matters not how deep intrenched the wrong,
How hard the battle goes, the day, how long.
Faint not. fight on ! To-morrow comes the song.

Yours for the best in life,

Geo. S. Murr-w.
