The old year is almost gone. Let
it go. There were Borne glad days,
and some sad days. There were soma
triumphs and some failures. Some
hopes realized and some blighted.
Bury the memory of those days, and
your failures along w th the waning

failure and lay hold of those that
helped you succeed. As you cross
the threshold of this new year that
stretches out before you, what better
equipment for the journey before
you, what better equipment for the
journey than to lay your hand in the
hand of Him who knows the way?
Come to the revival. Seek to know
the Lord in His pasdoning grace, and
then lead others to the Savior you
have found. If you w ll do this the
new year will hold for you more glad
dnys than sad ones, more triumphs
Every one should read the an
