A WORD TO THE WISE
Two young nirn parted nt the gato a year ago. Onu went to
school, tnado friends with tenchers and fellow students, lcnrntd to
onjoy reading and music, and wan ahlo thn folloulng summer to make
nearly twice an much money na he hnd ever made before. The other
stayed at home, made no now friends, learned no new pleasures, and
he is standing just where he ivas tost year.
Two young ladies separated at the corner last January. One
camo to Berea and became acquainted with a large number of teachers
and young people from all porta of the country. She found she had
n tante for mimic, and for good reading. And slm found alio could
line her education in a way to bring money. A yeur ago she camo
with her father' money; thin year alio camo with money she earned
The other young lady stayed at home, and tnado no new ac
quaintances. She Iihh few things alio can enjoy. She has an organ,
but can't play it. She is a year older, but ic is still standing just
where she wan a year ago.
A ouug man four yeara ago prepared to como to Ilerea, but de
cided at the last moment to atny at home. Last full-he was offered a
large Hilary iu a business concern, but found he had not enough ed
ucation to Jill the place. He Hent IH0.00 to a correspondence school
for books and instruction, but found he had not enough education to
understand the booksl Now he is coming to IJerca, but he has lost
Twenty yeara hence hundreds of people will be glud they started
to school NOW !
THE NEW YEAR
Somo of us have welcomed many uew years; some have welcomed
but few. We are graciously spared the know ledge of what the year
has iu store for us, so we enter hopeful, and expecting that it will
bring to us continued blessing.
What will we do with this new year? How ran wo invest it to
the best advautage? Surely the older among us have learned the
value of time, which cannot be bought, and which once gone from us
ia gone forever. Some have not many more years in store for them.
Whatever good you hope to do, do it this year, and do not wait till
the end of the yeur, but begin today to do that good to lift the bur
den of care, to make the heart lighter with love, to strengthen the
hands that are feeble, and write such a record by your deeds that
when jou are gone you will be remembered as one who was marked
for goodness of soul aud kiuduosa to all.
What a prospect is before th young of to day. Great achieve
ments will be brought about in the next few years. Advantages be
long to tho young of today, never before equalled in the history of
mankind Surely every young person who reads this, and every fath
er of promising children will be so eager to reach these opportunities
that preparation will be made for a life of usefulness aud of power.
Determine first on the greatness of goodness, then secure a preparation
that will enable you to meet the great opportunity that will come to
you Home day. So that your later years will not be filled with regret,
because when the opportunity for advancement came it found you un
prepared to accept it and fill positions that others, no better than you,
were enabled to fill, because they had secured the preparation needed.
