the advent of the new year many
cbant es had taken place. We find
d many vacant saat. at. homes we once

are told huah an one was bui led thew

thought cones to our mind that only

0 that those friends were upon this
beautiful earth enjoying no doubt
agood health and the luxuries of life,
but now they are sleeping an ever

d are only two p'acs whore they can

world we are firced to take the one
0for which we ar e best suited. We Are
told that one of those places Is a
place of joy and happiness, prepared
especially for those who do thb Lord's
wdll, the other place is a place of mis

for those who do the devil'a wIll.
