There comes a time in the life of
nearly every young man when he must
decide what path he will follow for
his life's work, unless he has little
character, and is willing to drift
wherevor the waves of chance may
carry him. This is perhaps the most
important period in the life of a young
man, and his future success and hap
pinoss depend largely upon the deci
sion ho makes. It is not always wise
. to jump at the first thing that p re-
8Jts itself, whether his abilities are
' touur man starts in life with a def
I init Pn of aotion, he starts upon a
' much higher plane than one of the
same abilities, who begins with aim
ply a willingness to work, and with
out any plan beyond earning enough
for his daily wants. The latter may
perhaps earn more at first, but the
former is certain to overtake him and
before manhood has been reached to
leave him far behind. A definite aim
in life may bo in any direction as long
as it gives the possessor an incentive to
strive for self-improvement, but the
ambitions and aims that lead a young
man along mechanical channels, to
spend several years in learning a trade,
are not popular with the average
Our country is a manufacturing
country, its industrial enterprises are
the wonder of the world, and have
created a continual demand for skill
ed workmen. In view of this demand
and the entirely inadequate supply of
machines, Tho Woodwork Depart
ment of Berea College is to be extend
ed to include a Trade School iu which
will be taught the Carpenter's and
Cabinetmaker's trade, to those stu
dents who may elect to take this
course and who show sufficient apti
tude for mechanical work to insure
that the instruction will not be wast
ed. There are many young men who
have during the past year, expressod
a desire to learn the Carpenters Trade
and to them and others, this opportun
ity is offered, This is a two year's
course and includes tho construction
of articles embodying all of the joints
known to carpentry, and also the fram
ing of a house and instruction in near
ly all processes used in its construc
tion, as well as in various pieces of
furniture and in general repairs
around buildings and farm machines.
A young mau having had the above
can feel certain that ho has an educa
tion that will enablo him him to meet
life's difficulties with more confidence
iu his own ability to earn and hold a
place for himself in this busy world
of ours than is possible to tho man
who has uovor trained his hand to
serve his brain. O. A. K.
