I Some Press Comments From Pine Bluff Commercial, Merci| 27, 1911. Southern Guardian Makes 1Appearance. The first issue of the Southern Guaran, which is to be published weekly by the Catholic Publication So- ciety of th0 Diocese of Little Rock, was given to the public on March 25. The new publication is a six-column, eight-page paper, and the first issue is full of matter of interest not only to Catholics, but to non-Cutholics as well. Right Roy. J. M. Lucey, Y. G., of Pine Bluff, is editor of the Guar- dian, which is a guarantee that the new paper will be strong from an edi- torial standpoint, as Rev. Lueey is one of the ablest writers in the state. The salutatory states t/he Guardian will be Catholic, and its aim will be to repel unjust attacks against the Catholic religion and to strengthen the minds of the people with correct and whole- some doe.trine, and at the same time it will help to build up Arkansas by striving to increase the " number ot most dedsirable citizens aad aid in th development of the state. The South- ern Guardian is Vhe first Catholic church paper to be published in this diocese, and there has been a growing desire for a number of years among the' clergy and laity for a church or- gan and the high standard of the first number indicates the venture will be a signal success. The Commercial ex- tend.s a Jhearty welcome to the now journal and congratulates its support- es in securing the services of Msgr. Lucey as edi' ,r. He has been a priest and pasor in the diocese of Little Rock nearly forty years and is held in the highest esteem and love not only by Oatholics, but persons of all denominations in the state. a  a From Arkansas Gazette, March 26, 1911 "The Sol :horn Guardian" is a new journalistic yenture in Little Rock, the initial issue of which was dated Satur- day, March 25, 1911. The new paper is a diocesan organ and the Catholic Pub- lieation goeiety was organized for the purpose of issuing this periodical. The stock of the company is owned by 293 of the leading Catholics of Arkansas, who have subscribed $10,000 for the purpose. "The New Era Press" is the name of the company that has been organ- ized to do the publication work amt , special plant for that purpose has been established at 315 West Markham street. Complete equipment, including a Mergenthaler linotype machine and a Miehlo press, with type and presses for job work, is being installed. The first issue, which appeared yes- terday, contains eight pages of reading and advertising matter. One of the features of the first "Guardian" is an article of approbation rom Bishop John B. Morris, which is given a prom- inent place on the first page. Monsignor J. M. Lucey, formerly of Pine Bluff, has charge of the .editorial work. be was an officer in the Con- federate army during the Civil war. A. B. Waterman, formerly of Colorado Springs, is business manager of "The New Era Press," the publishing con- corn. It is announced that mor.e than 2,000 subscriptions to he new paper have been received already and the promot- ers state that they will see to it that every Catholic home in the state of Arkansas will be receiving it in a short time. From Pine Bluff Graphic, March 28, 1911. The first issue of the Southern Guar- dian, the now weekly paper issued by the Catholic Publication Society at Little Rock, and edited by Rt. Rev. J. M. Lucey, V. G., has made its ap- pearance and promises to be a journal not only among the Catholics of this section of the country, but the mem- bers of other churches and business men as well. The first issue speaks volumes for the publishers. It is printed on an excellent quality of book paper, has an attractive make-up, and is well patronized by advertisers. The paper will doubtless be one of the best edited in the state. With the editorial pen in the hands of so capable and broadminded man as Father Luc0y it is bound to succeed. The Graphic wishes it unbounded success and greets it with the kindliest feeling for the purposes for 'w,hieh it was es- tablished. t t$ t$ 45 " From Arkansas Democrat, March 2, 1911. The Southern Guardian, to be pub- lished weekly as a church paper and as a paper devoted to all the varied in- dustries of the state, and taking par- ticular interest in the civic and re- ligious affairs of the church and state. will make its first appearance in Little Rock during the coming week, and is being published from its offices in the Fulk building. A new arid modern printing plant has been installed, and the office is .equipped for job printing and publish- ang generally. A. B. Waterman, a newspaper man of practical experience, is here to take charge of the .business interest of the paper, and Father J. M. Lucey will be the editor-in-chief of the paper. It is quite sure that the paper will have the loyal support of the Catholics through- out the tate, and many who are not Catholics will give the paper support on account of the personal popularity of Father Lueey and his recognized ability as a writer. The newspaper will be under the di- rection of a Board ef Directors, and nearly all the prominent Catholics o the state are interested as stockholders, so that the paper takes its place at once right in the top rank as a church paper, and one that will grow more popular as it grows older. Father Lu- eey has already arrived in Little Rock and will make this city his permanent home, giving most of his time to the affairs of the Southern Guardian. AND THEN.

MARKHAM ST., Rooms 18-19, LITTLE ROCK. CLARENCE, E. EPSTEIN, State Manager HOW MElt" ARE lVIADE. There may be some successes among ' F' 7 the great men of New York who did t '/"#/  fllf/' ][ not start at the bottom of the laddor,k,.]lk,[,L/ tfll[[..., but the public hears seldom and very . ' little of these. The groat leaders t,hat F-r][ 7  we hear of are the ones that rose from # "1'11 ][ f%'- # t'll,'t'l'lt I the humblest origin. There is John I Ill IlV LII LII I ILIII LI{A./ D. Archbold, of the Standard Oil Corn- M pany, beginning as a clerk in a coun- try store, sprinkling and sweeping the floor for a few dollars per week--today one of the leading men of America. H. H. Vreeland, president of the Met- ropolitan Street Railway Company, son of a poor preacher, starting in life as a driver on a grocer's wagon, later a laborer on a Lake Shore Railroad con- struction train. Step by step he rose, passing through every position in the railrod service, up to brakeman, con- ductor--mecting William C. Whitney, who was impressed with the man's knowledge of railroad work, he was of- fered and accepted higher positions. Now he is at the .head of the greatest Southern a t'rus" 001"o traction system in the world. Charles P. Steinmetz landed in New York a veer, pc.nile,s man, sought a Southern Trust Building cheap lodging house, secured work, plodded along, displaying tact, judg- ment, energy. Now he is the head of the General Electric Company at a sal-i grocery. Today James Butler's grocery gable toiler patiently plodded on. When ary probably amounting to $30,000 a /car. Hudson Maxim, the poor school teach- rnow the leader in explosives and ordnance. Corcy, the head of the steel trust, was a laborer at $1 a day in the tIome- stead plant, attended night school, studied chemistry, and laid the foun- dation for his rapid advancement. Pro- moted to be foreman, he had the repu- tation of getting more work out of his men than any other foreman in the works. Later he caught the eye of Carnegie and rapid promotion folIowed. The position of W. E. Corey at the head of the steel trust is one of the most responsible and exacting; as well as lucrative, in the entire industrial world. One dollar a day was Charles M. Schwab's salary driving stakes for a steel company--later a fa.rm laborer, then driver of a small coach. The early days of Schwab were those of a hardy, intelligent country boy. He went to school--at sixteen was a grad- uate. There were books to be road and he read them; but his tastes were not those of a student of books. Dash, vigor and enterprise characterized the young man. In a year after stake driving .he was chief assistant to Jones, the manager of the steel plant, and in seven years Schwab was the chief of the engineers' department, and under his supervision the famous plant at Homestead was built. Schwab applied himself and did well all that he did-- becoming president of the Carnegie company, later first vice president of the merged corporations, the United States Steel Corporation. lie is now president of the Bethlehem Steel Cox- poration and worth many, many mil- lions-it is said how many he himself does not know. Old Doctor Robert Collyer is another illustration. A young village black- smith working at the forge--not to de- velop his muscles as some have done, but because a living had to be made. The yonng man studied at night, came from England to America in 1850, started out as a local preacher in the Methodist church. He soon attracted attention by his style and method. To- day none rank higher among the hon- ored and high profession. John H. Finley, president of the College of New York, is one of the rare self-made college men. Born on a remote farm in Illinois fifty years ago., brought up on the farm, only en- 3oyang such limited educational advan- tages as the local public school al- lowed. On entering the high school he managed to support himself working in his spare .hours at anything which promised an immediate return. Knox College was his goal, but at that time seemed unattainable. His income at this time was as a printer. Later he ! became principal of his old high school; then he proceeded to Johns Hopkins University, and later was called to the presidency of Knox College. From there he went to fill a chair at Prince- ton that had been created for him. His selection for the presidency of the Col. logo ef the city of New York quickly followed. Who has not heard of John H. Finley Thomas F. Ryan is another of the world's wonders. Born in Virginia, .he was orphaned at the age ef five. brought up by a grandmother, with lit- tle chance for schooling. Ho left his meager inheritance and unproductive farm well-nigh penniless, went from door to door in Baltimore seeking em- ployment, rebuffed thne and again. Ho finally secured work in a dry goods store. Removing to New York in 1870. four years later Ryan was a member of the stock exchange. Today the his- tory of T.hemas F. Ry,n's wonderful rise and enormous fortune is too well known to attempt, to repeat it in this correspondence. Leoner F. torte, who is to succeed E. tI. Harriman, is another example. Beginning as a chain man on an en- gineer's corps, he rapidly rose. When the Johnstown flood occurred torte happened to be near by, in charge of the railroad construction forge, and nat- urally was the first to be put to work re-establishing things. So well was the work done that he was advanced step by step, performing his duties so well in every place that he is now to wear the mantle of Harriman. A black-haired hall boy at the Heft- man House, by his obliging, attentive work, is today the proprietor of the groat Knickerbocker hotel, one of the greatest in the world. Rigan served in every place from the bottom up, and to this he attributes his suceess that he knows from experience every- thing about the hotel business.

COLLEGE EDUCATION IS NOT NEC- ESSARY TO SUCCESS. Many of the young Catholic men and women who have not been able to go to college feel this to be a serious det- riment to success Undoubtedly, uni- versity training is a great advantage to any one, but when it cannot be had good results may be obtained at home, provided the ambition to make good is great enough. This is what the late Charles O'Malley has said on this sub- ject: A Brain Woman. "The brainiest person I have ever met was the late Mrs. Margaret F. Sul- livan of Chicago, and during the lt twe, nty years I have, as editor of nearly a dozen Catholic magazines and news. papers in as many great cities, come in contact with a number of people with brains. When I knew lffrs. Sullivan she was regarded as a phenomenon. Be- sides English, she could spealt, read and write French, German, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, and read and translate Greek, Latin, Arabic', He- brew and Sanskrit. She knew history perfectly and was deep in biology, as- tronomy, archaeology, geology, botany, ornithology and kindred studies. She was an adept in Thomistie philosophy and was a better theologian than most of the clergy of her acquaintance. World politics and those of her own country she had at her fingers' ends, being a leading editorial writer on the daily press. In matters artistic, lit- erary and musical, she was a savant. Speaking of her to me one of the ed- itors of a Chicago great daily once re- marked, 'There is nothing that woman does not know, and know it thorough- ly' "How was tMs 'infinitude of knowl- edge' acquired In a university? Not at all. Mrs. Sullivan graduated from an academy conducted by the Ladies of the Sacred Heart and never attend. ed a woman's college. She had a thirst for knowledge--an insatiable thirst and turned her home into a college, often studying far into the night. Next, it became a university as the indcfati- Your Horse Needs 6ood Harness Just like you need good clothes. Treat him right and he will do you good ssrvice.
