'.Unto every one that hath shall
be given and he shall have abun
dance."-Matthew xxv, 29.
These words are selected from
our Saviour's parable of the en
trusted talents. It represents a
certain master on the eve of taking
a long journey, entrusting to his
servants a certain amount of money.
To one he entrusted five talents, to
another two, and to another one.
After he had gone the servants were
free to employ them as they thought
best. Two of them employed theirs
in such a manner- as to double
them by the time the master re
turned. The other hid his for safe
keeping. and by his unwise con
duct gained nothing for himself or
his master. Upon the master's re
turn he called them severally to ac
count. The one to whom he had
entrusted five talents, and who, by
prudent management, had doubled
them, was greeted with, "Well done,
good and faithful servant." The
one to whom he had entrasted two
talents, and who had in like man
ner doubled them, was, in like man
ner commended. But that one who
had his lord's money, and returned
it rusty and without interest, was
condemned, the master saying,
"Take the talent from him and give
it to him that hath ten talents, for
unto every one that hath shall be
given and he shall have abundance,
and from him that hath not shall
be taken even that which he hath."
By every one that hath is meant
every one that improves what God
has entrusted to him; and by every
one that hath not is meant every
one that fails to improve what God
has entrusted to him. The word
talent literally and primarily refers
to money, but metaphorically it
means any valuable possession,
whether material, intellectual, Civil,
social or moral. The general truth
of the parable is that our talents
will be multiplied, or diminished,
according as we improve or fail to
improve them. Educationt is a tal
ent capable of abundant enlarge
ment. It is capable also of serious
diminution. It is possible for a
student, six months after gradua
tion, to have less education than at
the time of receiving the diploma.
It is not only possible, but it is a
matter of frequent occurrence. And
there are many instances, not only
of diminution of education, but of
the gradual decay of mental power,
from the same cause. An unfaith
ful custodian of another's treasure
is no more certain of losing his
custodianship than is an unfaithful
alumnus of sinking in scholarly at-.
tainment. Hence, the oft repeated
admonition to graduating classes
about their education not being.

ecuting it in the future-in all the
future ! The sum of money that
doubles and quadruples itself so
often is the employed-the active
sum of money that finds its way in
to the channels of business, which
possess the magic power of con
~verting even the nimble sixpence
into a fortune. The knowledge and
applic.ation of this law has often
made honest millionaires of poor
men. In like manner, the educa
tion that doubles and quadruples
itself is the active education, that
throws itself into all the channels
of thought, which possess, in like
manner, the magic power of con
verting the tyro in learning into
the master in arts, science, litera
ture and philosophy. The hill of
science is so broad and so high that
no mortal ever trod, or can tread,

and by labored steps,. gained at
length their lofty elevation.

In order that you may realize all
the possibilities that lie in your
future path,
I. Aim ever to be thorough.
To the credit of the learned and
venerable head of the Walhalla Fe
male College, its course of study
has been chosen with a view to lay
ing an educational foundation so
deep and so broad, that its grad
uates might in the future, rear any
praiseworthy ideal superstructure
upon it. The old inductive idea of
education, regarding the mind as a
mere recept.cle of knowledge,
which only required filling up in
order to be educated, has long since
been discarded. The natural re
bound from this extreme was its
opposite, which regarded education
as simply a process of eduction-a
drawing out of the undeveloped
powers. The truth here, as else
where, lies in the golden mean. The
mere filling up of the mind's re
ceptivity with Latin, French, His
tory, Philosophy. and various other
branches of study, may be accom
plished by some minds with very
little education. Some memories
are very capacious, but what is a
capacious memory without judg
ment, taste, or practical sense? A
mere prodigy in knowledge may
be a prodigious failure in every
thing else. And so may the man
be whose education has been con
ducted upon the drawing out theory
of pure mental gymnastics. Edu
cation includes a proper kind of
knowledge and that mental dis
cipline which is necessary to apply
it wisely. These requisites cannot
be attained without that thorough
study which makes the student
master of each branch as far as it
is taken up in his course. The
mind gains strength by conquering
difficulties in study, and it becomes
weak by retreating before them.
There is such a thing as mental de
moralization from defeat. If a
branch of study conquer ,the stu
dent, instead of the student con
quering the study,- itwill not be
long till that student is in full re
treat before eyery study that re
quires close application. Soon his
whole way will be hedged up, and
he will by a helpless prisoner, and
the sooner he is exchanged the
better. Many of the different
branches of study are so related to
each other t) at one slight omission
may make -a impassable gulf be
tween its k wer and higher parts.
A chain with a missing link will not
bind. The mathematics, from the
multiplicatio.i table to the calcu
lation of an eclipse, are all linked
together, and if the student miss
one important link, he Can make no
certain progress in that study until
be has gone back and replaced it.
So it is, to a certain extent, in
languages, the physical sciences,
and many other branches. All of
a particular department are so re
lated, the higher to the lower, that
the stndent can only make certain,
safe and comfortable progress, by
thoroughly mastering all that he
undertakes. S,uch a course stores
the mind - with useful knowledge,
and at the same time, imparts to it
the 'discipline that is necessary to
its right application. sHowever
greatly the circle of study may be
enlarged in after life, there will
then always be capacity to gather
treasures of wisdom from its hid
den stores, whether in tne field of
literature, history, science, art, phil
osophy, social, or domestic life.
Thoroughness of study at college,
supplemented in after life by the
continuance of the habit in an ever
widening field, not only multiplies
incalculably the education acquired
at college, but it will multiply doors
of usefulness on every hand, and
furnish the requisite ability to en
ter these doors. and do' the work
they require with a master's band.
II. Cultivate a passion for study.
If it is pursued from necessity
and not from choice, from mere im
pulse, and not from growing fond
ness rooted in deep seated princi
ple, it will result in no certain pro
gress. John Riuskin argues that
what a person does from the pleas
ure he finds in it, is play. In this
way work itself-even the hardest
work - becomes play. Farming,
merchadizing. banking, soldiering,
ny and every kind of work, becomes
play to some men. They takejust
is much pleasure in it as real players
to in their games, and that is one I
reat secret of their success. A
~elebrated German author declared
~hat "if the Creator should grant I
im the possession of all knowledge
s a free gift he would not thank
im for the boon, but if he should
~rant him the everlasting pursuit of
t, he would render him everlasting
hanks." All the great masters in .
nusic, poetry, oratory, painting.and
~culpture, acquired a passion for
he art in which they excelled, and .
hus made their life play. If the
abor necessary to produce the
~lliad or Paradise Lost had beent
othing but unpleasant toil, the C
orld would never have heard of:

~essary to deliver the philippics of
noral culture. The conscience, the
ill, the affections, all need edu
;ating. There are too many at the
resent day who would educate the
ntellect at the expense of the moral
iature. Intellectual education, in
heir view, when universally ap
)lied, will introduce the millennium.
Che story of the bustling little man,
n conversation with a wise old
nan, illustrates the absurdity of
his theory. The bustling little
nan could see nothing but excel
ence in knowledge, but the wise
>ld man led him to see that knowl
dge was an increase of power,
rnd then by a number of pertinent
llustrations, convinced him that
>ower might be a bad, as well as a
rood thing, and needed directing, as
yell as a horse or ship in order to
;erve a good purpose. "God's
,race in the heart," said the wise
>ld man, "will render the knowledge
)f the head a blessing, but without
his, it may prove a curse instead of
t blessing," "I see, I see, I see,
learly," said the bustling little
nan ! The history of the world
hows the correctness of the old
nan's philosophy. It was not ig
iorance that made Egypt, Babylon,
xreece and Rome fall into decay.
[hese countries abounded in learn
;d men at the time of their greatest
legeneracy.. It was vice running
lot in the midst of the movements
f their genius, while their orators
rere charming listening senates
rith their eloquence, their philoso
ihers were delighting their schools
vith their wisdorh, and their poets
vere immortalizing in song the
leeds of their heroes.
There must be an education of
he moral nature to keep the race
rom drifting into ruin. The con
cience, rightly educated, directs
n the path of duty, and wars against
he opposite path. The will, rightly
ducated, chooses the path of duty,
,nd refuses the opposite path. The
teart, rightly educated, loves the
>ath of duty, and hates the oppo
ite path.
Moral education includes, besides
he development of the conven
ional proprieties of life, that inner
ransformation of character which
omes from the word and Spirit of
lod. ldine truth must become a
art of the daily food of the soul.
t is the medium through which
race is communicated, and thus,
he subject of it is transformed af
er the image of the great Creator.
lenuine Christian morality is from
rithin. It is not like paint, put on
he outside to please the eye, but it
s like health, working from within,
,nd making outward beauty, be
ause there is inward beauty to
>roduce it. Therefore, while quench

ion of the intellect, as to render a

in the bright blossoms of a young
ruit tree. He regards them as the
>recursors of disease and decay.
Ie will therefore destroy most of
hose blossoms to save the tree.
'he young tree that is allowed to
ear a burden of fruit each year is
xhausting its vital force in thei
roduction of this fruit, and will in<
onsequence, be a weakly tree,i
estined to an early death. It is i
ke the precocious youth. The
rid, in this case, should receive
ss educational attention for a few
ears than the body. The same I
ractical sense shown in the edu
ation of a fruit tree, should I
e shown in the physical edu-t
ation of a human being. By t
roper care of the body, during the
ritical period of life, such physicalt
igor may be secured as will prove
reasonably certain guarantee of i
iture health to a good old age. How ]
u. is the necrology of early genius ! t
ames Gregory, the inventor of the t
flecting telescope, after a brief t
udy of the stars, took his flight to i
e starry worlds in the thirty- i
~venth year of his age ! Mozart, f

nothing but unpleasant toil, the
world would never have heard of <
either of the silver tongued orators
of antiquity. If the labor necessary i
to produce statuary that almost i
spoke, and paintings that almost I
breathed, had been nothing but un
pleasant toil, the world would never
have heard of Praxiteles and Mich- i
ael Angelo, Apelles, Raphael and
Rubens. If the labor necessary to 1
discover the nature and laws of
matter and mind had been nothing l
but unpleasant toil, the world would <
never have heard of Plato and Aris
toltle, Bacon, Locke, Newton,
Leibnitz and Kant. Every master, i
in every department of study, be- l
came such by making that in which
he obtained the mastery, a play.
When Archimedes discovered a
great law in nature, he was so filled
ith pleasurable emotions that he <
ran out into the street crying out,
"I have found it, I have found it." 1
When Newton was prosecuting his
astronomical studies he was so
overwhelmed with pleasurable sen
sations at times as to be under the
necessity of temporary rest to avoid i
nervous prostration. It is not only
a matter of experience, that the (
pursuit of wisdom is attended with
pleasure, it is also a matter of rev
elation. "Her ways are ways of c
pleasantness." People talk about
peculiar aptitude, of genius, as <
though that would account for the
difference between ordinary and i
masterly minds. What is genius
but that persevering industry that
makes work play? Remember this.
Ever act upon it and you will i
ever be in possession of the secret
of success-the true philosopher's t
stone that turns all that it touches f
into that which is "more to be de- s
sired than gold-yea, than fine i
gold." t
III. Have confidence in your ca
The opinion was once common
that woman was intellectually in
ferior to man. This opinion, like
the false philosophy in which it
originated, is fast disappearing from
the world. The history of the race,
notwithstanding man has generally
bad a monopoly of its best educa
tional advantages, shows beyond a
doubt that there is no difference in
mental capacity, on account of sex.
[n the sphere of government
Semiramis, Catherine of Russia, and
Elizabeth, of England, figured just t
as conspicuously as Nebuchad
nezzar, Peter the Great, or Alfred
Lhe Great. In the sphere of state
craft, Madame DeStael figures just '
as conspicuously as any one of the
strong minded men during the c
French Revolution. In the sphere i
of authorship Margaret Fuller,
Elizabeth Barret Browning, George
Eliot, Mrs. Hemans, and Mrs. Sig
Durney, suffer no obscurity from
being compared with Goldsmith,
Addison, Walter Scott or Charles
Dickens. Among the living literatli ~
of America, the female group stands 3
just as high, and seems just as
much at home, on Parnassus as the -
male group. In the sphere of ms
thetic art, which, until recently, was
a sort of Terra Izcognita to woman,
she is disputing the palm with the
sterner sex, and her natural love
for the beautiful and easily ac
quired skill in adornment give her
peculiar advantages for obtaining
eminence in this line of culture.
She sees the picture on the un
painted canvass, and the statue in
the block of marble just as readily1
as man, and can just as readily
paint the ideal form on canvass,, or
with the mallet and chisel, develop.
the statue from the block of marble.
In the sphere of religion she has ever
shown a devotion superior to man.
She has larger sympathies, stronger
affections, and a religion whose
essence is love and whose founda
bion is faith, and whose manifesta
tion is beneficence, addresses itself
especially to her heart. Last at
the cross, first at the selpulcher,
earliest to proclaim the resurrec
~ion, she exhibited, in those typical
acts, that self-sacrificing sympathy ~
for religion, which, in universal ex
arcise, will restore Paradise to man.
Woman's sphere always has been,e
m.d always will be less public than
Dan's. Man has, until recently, ~
1ad a monopoly of the professions. l
Ele is seen more and heard more in
>ublic, and that is because God has1
nade him physically stronger than
voman. He has stronger bones,
nuscles, lungs and voice, and thesec
it him for the bar, the bench, the b
ostrum, the pulpit, the arena of c
>olitics, and the head of the army.
3ut strong bones are not the neces
ary concomitants of intellectualC
ower, else physical giants ought a
~lways to be intellectual giants.
et no person think because she is
woman, that she has no capacity
or the most thorough intellectualr
ulture. She has the capacity, andS
hat capacity is one of the talents t
ommitted to her keeping, that it
oay be so improved as to be re- t
urned in the end abundantly en- e,
arged' vi
IV. While a.ttending to the educa- a
ion of the intellect, do0 not neglect that a

We are moral as well as intel- R
ectual beings. Hence, in order to al
omplete ednatinthere must be rw
paints the rose and sets the bow
in the cloud, in the thirty-eighth
year of his age ! Robert Polok,
whose lofty muse sang in su^.h sol
emn strain, "The course of time,"
finished his course on earth at the
age of twenty-nine ! Henry Kirke
White, who wrote creditable poetry
when a boy, and immortalized him
self at twenty, paid the penalty of
overtaxed endurance at the age of
twenty-one ! Robert Murray Mc
Cheyne, one of Scotland's most
brilliant divines, exchanged the
militant for the triumphant church
at the age of thirty ! Fancis Beau
ment, the second Shakespeare of
the English drama, passed from the
stage and play of life at thirty,
Lord Byron at the age of thirty-six,
and Robert Burns at thirty-seven.
It would be presumption to pro
nounce all these illustrious charac
ters the victims of neglected physi
cal education; but it would be untrue
to affirm of most of them that they
took proper care of their bodies.
And it is true now, that, in the
culture of the mind, the body is too
much overlooked. The aim and
ambition is brilliant scholarship,
forgetting that brilliant scholarship,
like a certain kind of light, may
shine most brightly when the ves
sel that holds it is just ready to
break in pieces. God never meant
that we should educate the mind at
the expense of the. body, or the
body at the expense of the mind,
:r the moral nature upon the ruins
:f both. It is better to make slow
progress in mental culture, and
naintain bodily vigor, than rapid
progress to end in premature
leath. The plodding student will
accomplish more in a long life than
the brilliant one in a short life.
The body, no less than the mind, is
sod's workmanship. Take care of
t, guarding especially the more
vital organs. You have but one
pair of lungs. Keep disease out of
hem, and strengthen them by
Dreathing freely of God's pure air,
and they will be likely to serve you
o a good old age. You have but one
ieart. Keep it beating with steady
troke, and sending in lively glow
;he life currents in their rounds, and
that heart will be likely to beatnin
dealth long after the eye has become
lim, and the frost that never melts,
das silvered over the locks. Peo
ple cannot replace worn out vital
)rgans as they can amputated
Limbs, by artificial ones. A vital
:rgan dead the - whole body dies
with it. Like the injured Samson
in Dagon's temple, it pulls down
and lays the whole fabric in ruins.
Since so much depends upon the
body, fortify it against disease, by
exercise, temperance in eating and
drinking, and a most scrupulous ob
servance of all the laws of health.
It will save you from untold suffer
ing, add cheer to the whole round
of life, and contribute immeasurably
to your usefulness and success.
Young ladies, your possibilities
and prospects are most cheering.
Your sphere of labor may yet be un
determined in your minds, but it is
safe to predict that it will not be
on the rostram, at the bar, in the
pulpit or in the halls of legislation.
It will be in less conspicuous places,
but not in less important ones. In
the natural world, the most efficient
workers are the quiet workers. The
sun works quietly. The coral in
sect works quietly. Yet these
qluiet workers effect wonders. The
sun melts down mountains of ice,
ifts the vapor from the sea, forms
the rain cloud and the wind cloud,
and makes the rains descend and
the floods come, and the winds blow
and beat in the tornado and cyclone.
rhe coral insect lifts up great is
!ands in the sea, and the evidence
of its earth building power is seen
an the tops of the tallest monutains.
rhe noisy worker is not the most
powerful, nor the most useful
worker. Niagara plunges and roars
and makes the earth tremble, and
the civilized world gaze in wonder,
but it does little good in compari
eon with the hundred quiet rivulets
~hat run down the mountain side,
Lud are so narrow that children
nay step over them; and so still
;hat no one hears them, and go
m laughing into other streams, en
iching the vallies and carpeting
he earth with living green, inter
spersed with flowers of every hue
nd making the corn and the wheat
rave in the luxury of abundance
or hundreds of miles. So is it
rith woman in her sphere. Though
ess public it is no less important
han man's, and requires no less
alent to fill it well. And as
re near the sun-rise of a bet
er day coming, this sphere is
'nlarging. .There is an increas
ng demand for female teachers.
n many places they occupy
bree-fourths of the positions in
he public schools, and there is a
line coming when they will.comn
aand equally with men the chairs
a academies and colleges. The
eld of literature is a broad one,
nd they are just as capable of oc
upying it successfully as men. The
eld of asthetic art is now open as
ever before to the female amateur,
nd she is entering there with such
ianifest capacity that no man can
afely predict that the coming Ra
>hael or Angelo will not be a wo
ian. And the sphere of religion,
