Most of us dislike the word "failure." We say
that it will never be part of our life, that we intend
to be successes,g and that failure will never, enter
into our vocabulary.
But a good failure is much to be desired. We
will never appreciate success until we have known
failure. If we have never known a failure, we have
never known what it is to be spurred on to a greater
effort, <e have' never known what it is to grit our
teeth and determine to win at all costs..
If we have never known failure, we have not
achieved real success. Nothing is more unfortu-'
nate than to succeed too quickly and too easily. If'
our success is reached without struggle or fight,
there is something lacking. We will begin to think
that we are invincible, that we have reached the
heights because of our overwhelming superiority.
And that will be the beginning of our downfall.
Lincoln didn't stop, at his first failue-the fail-
ure to go to school. It made him all the more eager
to learn. One of the Mayo brothers failed in some
of his studies, and his professors toldc him he would
never make a doctor. And the Allies had to suffer
crutshingdefeats to make them fight all the harder
Don't be afraid of failure. The man: who can
withstand, the biggest failures will ultimately gain
the biggest successes: The Michigan Diy.
"PAINTED -FACES MUST.GO" $
The Frances Willard Union of Brooklyn, 1,400
strong, has begun war on "the cosmetic evil." In
the words of Mrs. George F. Pashley, state superin-
tendent of the W. C. T. U., "the popularity of paint
and powder has reached the stage where it behooves
all Christian women to put forth their best efforts to
destroy these demoralizing influences. ,
To the pure all things are impure. But assuming
the absolute immorality of a painted face, what is
the relative immorality of dyed hair or manicured
finger nails or darkened eyebrows ? What degree of
demoralizing influence is there in false hair or false
teeth? No doubt there are distinctions and grades
of guilt in all the feminine counterfeiting of nature.
Perhaps the beauty parlor itself ill have to go some
day, as the saloon has gone.
But are not the painted face purists confusing
morals with art ? All that most men see to criticise
in the lavish use of cosmetics by women is the vio-
lence dpne to nature's inimitable gift of beauty.
Viewed as art, it is a cubist performance, an attempt
to paint the'lily and improve the rose of complexions
that are only married by the process. They marvel
why. young girls in particular should barter a divine
birthright for a mess of paint and powder, but re-
gard the problem, not as a moral question, but as
one of the inscrutable mysteries of feminine nature.

COSTS OTHER THAN WAGESF
The object-lesson in the relation between railway
rates and wages must now be nearly complete.
Meanwhile there is growing need of a demonstration
of the similar relation between other costs of public
utilities and their income and solvency. The regu-
lators seem to have the idea that it is only necessary
to order money to be spent, and that it is no concern'
of theirs where themoney is to come 'from. Thus
the Public Service Commission has made an order.
that the Long Island railroad provide 1i, addi-
tional c irs. The reason assigned is that the commis-
sion thinks that the railway's business will increase
artd that the cars will be needed. That is right, and
the company agrees. , What is omitted is the fact
that there already is an order outstandih for new
cars on which; no deliveries have been made, or are
likely sooni to be rmade, considerkng the state of the
irortrade and the railway blockade. Moreover, the
railway's financial condition has ben impaired by
the orders for the increase of wages. If rates are
to be raised to care for the higher.wages, why not
to care for the order to buy equipment?
The same commission directs the New York and
Queens County .railway to improve its service in
rush hourk. It certainly needs improvement. An-
other order is that the Kings County Lighting com-'
pany shall spend $2,500,000 in enlarging its facili-
ties for the performance of its duties under its
franchise as a public utility. ' Doubtless it should
do so. In these and similar cases the public is notj
served as it ought to be, and it is right that pressure
should be put on the holders of franchises to fulfill
the conditions on which they were given. But the,
public utilities are sufferers as well as the public,
and their expectations also have been disappointed.
grievously. When regulators deal with such situ-
ations by an order which does not consider the whole
case, Ithey fail in their duty as protectors of the
utilities by as much as they show excess of zeal in
the service of the public. It is not in the real in-
terest of the public that its utilities should be driven
'into weanekss or bankruptcy. It is good policy to
keep alive the public utilities we have, even by some
relavation of regulation which might be justified by'
counsels of perfection, for it will be difficult to re-
place them.-New York Times.
