Anyone Can Have an Indomitable Will It has long been known that the will can be trained into wonderful power like memory, or like any one of the senses-by intelligent exercise and use. The trouble with almost every one is that they do not use their wills. They carry out other people's wills, or drift along with circumstance. If you held your arm in a sling for two years, the muscles would become powerless to lift a feather. That is exactly what happens, in most people, to the faculty we call "will-power." Because we never use the Will, we finally become unable to use it. We degenerate into beings little more than slaves-unhappy, discontented, envious, hoping blindly that some day "-without any effort-we will attain what we most want in life.

This great work provides a thorough course in Will-Training, consisting of 28 lessons. It reveals the secrets as to how great men train their wills into wonderful power. For Master-Men " Power of Will" provides the shake-up that ninety-nine out of every hundred people need. Master-Men like Judge Ben B. Lindsey; Supreme Court Justice Parker; Wu Ting Fang, ex-U. S. Chinese Ambassador; Lieutenant-Governor McKelvie, of Nebraska; General Manager Christeson, of Wells-Fargo Express Co.; Asst. Postmaster-General Britt; Ernest Knaebel, Asst. Att'y-Gen'l of the U. S.; E. St. Elmo Lewis, now Vice President, Art Metal Construction Co. -and literally thousands of other men of action and ambition like them-read, use, and praise 'Power of Will." Its readers talk of it as of a Bible. It has made decisive men of action out of the most miserable "down-and-outs." It has cured victims of drink and other vices. It has made big men bigger by showingthem how to use their brains better. It is a goad to old and young alike. It has re-awakened ambition in men and women who have been turned from their life purposes, and shown its students how to carry forward their ambitions into consum mation. Is YOUR Will Dormant? Took back upon your life. Once upon a time. no doubt, you weaved great dreams of what you were going to make of yourself. Are they accomplised noi? Why are they not accomplished? Is it not because you lacked a strong, powerful, dominating, inflexible WILL? You allowed others to control and influence yr'" o their ends, instead of controlling others yourself. You let insignificant daily incidents everlastingly turn you from your purpose. Gradually-like so many of us you allowed this God-given faculty of will to become scotched and DORMANT in you. Dr. Haddock has a message for you-a real message of emancipationfrom tie blasting human curse of indecision and blind habit a message which every man from 20 to 60 years old should get.
