'NEVER TOO LATE TO MEND'
BY ROSA MAHKI'S
.The resolution which* I am about' to
make this year is [a : little out "of
the' ordinary. ,7 I mean to wait no
longer ; for the new year to make my
resolutions, but to make them day by
day, 'and to ever keep In "mind the
maxim, "It-Is never too late to mend."
' Thousands, of "people all over the
world:-are "going; from' fairly'good to
bad, and ; from bad,, to ' worse, ; for '] the
very '. reason; that they doubt' the truth
of this ; wise ;■ saying. ' When '-. evil men
are ; asked Why ; they do not .mend; their
ways I they always« make . the ' same" re
ply. , "Reform?" they ask. !•, "That might
have been done 10 years ago, but now—
impossible." In thinking thus they are
entirely, wrong. *It is never too late to
reform. : No matter how. hardened a man
may be, no matter how black his repu
tation, he can become good "and.honest
In a day,i If the will to do so be only in
him. 'Friends and sympathizers will not
flock to his side at once,"'of course," This
can hardly be"expected.-Butitime and
perseverance will have '■ their effect, and
if in earnest victory will most undoubt
edly be his. As wrong as It is for the
thief or murderer to wait until the,last
to repent of his wrong doing, '• it is for
us Juniors to wait-until .the new year
to make our resolutions. Let us make
them day by day, hour by hour, minute

Amid the joy and merry making of

tom , which prevails in all Christian
countries to resolve on the new year to

which I sorely need.

Is that a "good resolution, Juniors? I
think It Is.' Let me tell you why.
Self-control Is that by which' we can
control our feelings or emotions." With
self-control* we 'can: bear, many things.
Let me give you an example. •'
In a certain town*' there lived a little
girl .who. had been spoiled by Indulgent
parents. One day she was invited to a
muslcale[ given by one' of her friends.
Although - she • was ' not - fond of music
she accepted the- kind invitation.. All
went well for the first few numbers of
the mush-ale. x But after a ' while the
music to her seemed tedious and she
soon, became an annoyance to .the hos
