We would again express our sincere thanks for the numerous responses to our offer, and the many valuable suggestions received.

Owing to lack of space it will not be possible to publish the papers received, although many of them are of considerable general interest.
With the approach of long evenings and cool weather, the thought of the amateur mechanic naturally inclines towards the work which has been held in abeyance during the summer. Many of our readers have already formed plans for a systematic course of study or work, but many others have not. The importance of pursuing some line of study or work, which may at the same time furnish much pleasure, cannot be too strongly emphasized. "Work" is the watchword of success, and he who would achieve success must utilize his time to the best advantage.
We are too much inclined to think that work means drudgery, but this is true only when the worker has no interest in his occupation, or when that occupation is so mechanical as to require no mental effort by the worker. We should, therefore, give careful thought to both our work and our pleasure, and our constant efforts should be directed towards fitting ourselves for and engaging in the work for which nature has best endowed us.
It is rarely an easy matter to reach a desired position quickly, but drifting along without purpose will not bring it. Well laid plans, persistently followed, will accomplish much, and will in time become so interwoven into our mode of life and thought as to be of material assistance in accomplishing our aims.
With this number we complete the fifth year of this magazine. Our sincere thanks are given to the many who have assisted us with their subscriptions and in other helpful ways. We look forward to the next five years with much encouragement, and the plans now under way will, we trust, make the magazine even more helpful and interesting than in the past. The many letters expressing the appreciation of the writers, which we are constantly receiving, are but a spur to increased effort on our part.
