New Year Retolutiont.
In theory, tho first day of tho now
year is a mount of viiion whence tlio
traveler on life's journey, looking
backward uvcr tho woy that ho hiti
passed and, seeing tho plncc whero lie
stumbled, or went astray, ii enabled
l go forward, freshly fortified against
I ho pitfalls nnd temptation, of tho
future. In practice, tho " mount of
vision ' nipcct of tho tiny ii confined
almost exclusively to tho btiaineu
community. Tlio way tlint is scanned
is found in tlio ledger nnd tho hnlnnco
ahcot; and tho places of stumbling
and going astray nro the charges to
profit nnd loss when bad debts were
made, or confidence was mispUccd.
Tliero is n good deal, o doubt, of
sentimental self-examination, nnd
equally sentimental resolving to do
better, cither In respect to smoking, or
grnvcr sins; but tho pcrtons who
really profit much by self examination
nnd resolutions for reform nro not tho
ones who wnil tor New Ycnr'a Day.
Tlio man or womltn who rcnlly finds
tho past n failure, nnd honestly re
solves to begin again, will succeed just
na well if tho start is in ado on nny
other day of the three hundred nnd
sixty-fire. Tho chances arc, indeed,
for better success. Tho New Year
resolution, through frequent fracture,
tins eomo into disrepute, and there is
a widespread belief that it is made to
!o broken. He, therefore, who makes
ono nnd keeps it, disappoint his
friend and tho general expectation,
which is nn unpleasant thing to do.
Tho resolution-maker who selects some
other day avoids this uupleatftntnctr.
Htill, there is something in' tho tra
ditfons of tho day which marks it,
above its three hundred nnd sixty
four brethren, ns a day ot beginning,
of new hopes and new purpose. If
it wcro not for tho things which never
happen this year, but nro always go
ing to happen next the houses wo
arc to build, the fortunes- we nro to
mako, tho journeys wo nro to take,
tho improved health wo nro to have
life would lo a dreary business. And
as tliero is to bo n "next" year,
which must, in somo way, lx) divided
from this, tho first of January an
swers nn excellent purposo, and well
deserves tho recognition wo nccord it
of social gathering nnd glad, hopeful
greeting. " Tlio thought of our past
years in mo doth breed perpetual
benediction," sang tho poet Words
worth but1 with each recurrence of
tho day wo celebrate, wo learn that
tho thought of coming years breeds
also a benediction tho benediction of
hope.5 fDetroit Free Press.

Tho following took plnco at n camp
meeting recently conducted by S. P.
Richards, presiding elder of tho Au

went up into tho stand on Sunday
morning to preach, As is customary
at cainp-meotings ho found n great
many 'of (ho young men sitting nmong
tho ladies. He told thorn thoy must
nil move over on tho men's side, which
they did. That evening Hov. Sam
Jones was to preach, and "Undo Si
mon Peter" was up iu tho pulpit with
him. Just ns Mr. Jones got up ta
commence preaching, "Undo Simon
Peter" looko d over tho nudieuco nnd
spied a young man sitting with a young
lady. Ho immediately jerked Mr.
Jones by tho coat tail and motioned
him to sit down. Rising up ho said:
"Young ladies, if nny of you hnvo a
spnro dross, pleaso put It on thnt
young man over tliero nmong those
young ladies, with his hnir parted in
tho middle, he wants to bo n girl so

New York has no disposition to
