change That means that customs and
conditions change and the things that
make success and happiness in one genera
tion may bo different a few years later
Old people have longer memories than
the young and they ought to be wiser But
no ono grows wiser just by growing old
Wisdom comes by thinking over the things
we have heard and seen and felt So my
first advice is that you do some thinking
before you are carried over the line into
1911t
If you are more than a child you ought
to have some aim and purpose in life What
kind of a man what kind of n woman do
you aim to become It is easy to aim at
nothing and hit it
What mistakes have you seen people make and what mistakes
have you made yourself that ought not to be repeated Dont
drift into 1011 without some good strong resolutions
A > fltroug resolution is not a brittle one that is spoiled if once
broken Rather a strong resolution is a tough one that may bo
pushed aside but always comes back like a hickory bough Dont
say I will not speak one bad or foolish word and theuthink it is
all over if you do once break that resolution Rather say I will
constantly try to be clean truthful and reverent in all I Bay
When you get to thinking and mating good resolutions you
may feel like praying Then pray You will outgrow the need of
parents help but you will always need Gods help And you can
always have it by asking
Do not feel disheartened because you have not much money
You have what is worth more than money in the fact that you have

NEW FEATURES FOR NEW YEAR
Beginning with next weeks issue no are planning some new
features for TUB CITIZEN
The two features to appear first qrt series of health articles
by Dr Eugene L Fisk which will continue for eighteen weeks and
cover two columns a week and a history of the English Bible by
Prof J R Robertson of Berea
The health articles are on such subjects as Pure Air in the
Home Pure Water in the Home Sunlight in the Home
Good Food in the Home Exercise in the Home Bathing in
the Home and Care of the Sick in the Home Each article will
be appropriately illustrated
The articles on the history of the English Bible will treat the
various translations beginning with the first from the Latin and
then the others in succession going back of the Latin to the Greek
An interesting phase of these articles will be the examples of certain
quaint translations that will be given which will serve to give those
who have never seen these different versions an idea of what they
are and the labor it has required to band down this priceless
treasure in pure English and at the same time conform to the mean
ing as expressed in the Greek
Wo hope to illustrate these articles with cuts of seme of the
translations and a few plates showing fide pages
The health articles should appeal to all those who are more
interested in the prevention of disease than the cure They have
been submitted to Dr Cowley the College physician and have
received his unqualified indorsement No one should fail to read
them for if their directions are followed thousands of lives and
thousands of dollars will be saved >
And there is great need for the other series The influence of
those who profess to be able to teach the Bible quickly wavers when
it is discovered that they are lacking in such knowledge as these
articles are designed to give
Wolrust that our readers will beon the lookout for these
features and follow them closely for we can assure them that any
one article of either Series will be worth many times the subscription
to THE CITIZEN
