I want to impress upon you that
you have the making of one'of the
finest of men within you.
I want to encourage you to live
above your past. The very failures
of the past become stepping stones
for the future when we get on topis
of them. The very mistakes of the
past become guide-posts and danger
signals for the future when we allow
them to. The past is gone, whether
good, bad or indifferent, and cannot
be recalled. Well, let it ""go, except
as it may help us to not make the
saime mistakes again. A ancient
writer put it about right when he
said, "Leaving the things that are
behind and reaching- on to that which
before, I press toward the work
of the prize of the high calling which
in Christ Jesus."
Jonathan, the son of Saul, called
to the lad, "The arrows are ahead
of thee." If we may think of them
as the arrows of opportunity, we may
say they are ahead of us. ,The fu
ture is big with opportunity, for
man whose today is bigger and bet
ter than his yesterday.
We may not reach the heights at a
single bound, but steady climbing is
the thing that gets the^e. Perfection
is always above us, and ahead of us,
but .may be always hopefully on
the way towards it. We may look
K'hM up rather than down and then go as
ls Good Advice No Matter Tromfward. s-,pw*reB* p.^
In closing, I want to encourage you
in the highest ideals and inspirations
and aspirations of life.

NORTH CENTRAL AFRICA.
By E. W. Gilles. &t*
In North Central Africa, we have
the great Sahara desert. It isf not
all desert, however, as there are nu
merous oases, large and small, where
they have water and vegetation and
people. .So we are finding (mission
ary fields in the midst of the great
desert. Some railroads are being
along the line ofi the chief cara
van routes, so that some of these in
terior fields are becoming accessible
by railroad, and the camel, the an
cient "Ship of the Desert," is not so
Across on the eastern coast of
Africa we have Abyssinia, which is
the ancient Ethiopia of the Bible. In
the 8th chapter of Acts we read that
Ethiopian, eunuch went up to
Jerusalem to worship. He was, ob
viously, a Jewish worshiper, but not
yet a Christian. Oh his way home,
Philip, the Evangelist, fell in with
him and got up into his chariot and
preached unto him Jesus, and he was
happily converted and baptized and
went on his way rejoicing and we
traditionally understand that he went
home and preached the gospel to his
own people and, so, no doubt, was
the first Christian gospel preacher in
the great continent of Africa.
We also traditionally understand
that the apostle Matthew lived and
labored and died in Ethiopia
In the northeastern corner of Af
rica, we have Egypt. The descend
ants of the ancient Egyptians are
still there. We know them as the
Coptic people, and their church is
Coptic church. They are Christians
in a way, but not a very good way.
They have a system of church organ
ization, a system of priesthood and
a fonm of church worship, but not
Bible in it. This always re
sults in weakness whether on the
part of the individual Christian, or
the local church, or the denomination,
or the Christian world at large. The
missionaries are going to these Cop*
tic people with the open Bible, "and
reading it to them, and teaching and
encouraging them to read it for
themselves, and they are slowly com
ing into better things. Mission sta
tions M^ve been established here and
there lo many miles up and down
the Nile river
The Mohammedans are alarmingly
active in Northern Africa, and this
one of "our missionary problems.
Cyrene is in Northern Africa, and
as we do not know of any other
Cyrene, we are confident that Simon,
who carried the cross for Jesus, was
from Northern Africa.
There was much Christian activity
in Northern Africa during the apos
tolic period, and also during the pe
riod of the church fathers.
Among the great men of the early
church in Northern Africa, there was
Athanasius, bishop of Alexandria,
Cyprian, bishop of Carthage, and
Augustine, bishop of Hippo.
Northern Afriac has a mixed popu
lation, consisting of the' native Afri
can people and people from Europe
and people from Asia, which enlarges
the missionary problem. But from
the missionary viewpoint, we regard
as opportunities. SUCCESS.
