Biography of Judge Charles F. Molden

Young shoulders that bend beneath unnatural responsibilities which may not be laid aside become strong shoulders, and young brains that must plan and direct the work of bread-winning become active and practical, and the boy who makes success from ruin, as many a boy has done, is pretty apt to develop into a successful man of affairs.
