education means the develop
ment, perfection and the proper
use of the mind. In a still wider
sense, it means, or may mean,
the whole training of the thoughts
by inward retiwtiou ami outward
events and actions. Education
relates to the training and guar-
diaushipof youth fioro infancy
to mature age, to the influencing
of the character and prospects.
not ouly of individuals but of
nations. The mind like the body
is capable of receiving nourish
ment, aud we fiud education to
be the propef nourishment for the
mind. Then we should expand
our minds by receiving that
nurture. We will then be pre
pared to meet life's bitter strife.
"We mnst educate says oue.or
we must perish by our own pros

from the cradlo to the grave.
Many pa rents labor hard, and
live sparingly, that they may
give their children a start in the
world with money ; but setting a
son afloat with money left to
him, is like throwing one in the
water who cannot swim, and ten

him to swim, and he will uot suf

Give a child a good education,
and it will give him su':h a start
as will secure usefulness and
victory in the race he is to run.
The man who is well qualified,
who possesses a good education
is iu possession of a strong found

ly, read attentively, and digest
what we read, converse exten
sively with high and low, rich
and poor, noble and ignoble :
thus shall we more perfectly ful
fill the laws of our being, and
secure our best interest. While
reading we should reflect and
think of what we read, because
thinking leads man to knowledge.
Ho may see, hear and read as
much as be pleases, yet he will
never know aoy thing, except
t'jat which he has thought over.
that which by thinking be has
made the property of his mind.
The old saying then must be
true, that "man by thinking on
ly becomes truly man." Let ns
notice hoc a man is educated.
we una that costly apparatus
and splendid cabinets have no
magicial power to make scholars.
Iu all circumstances as man is
under, God the Master of his
own fortuue, so is Le the maker
of bis own mind. Every man
must therefore in an important
sense, educate himself. His
books and teachers are but helps
The work is his, and he is uot
educated until he has the ability
to summons, iu case of emer
geucy, all his mental powers, iu
vigorous exercise to effect his
proposed object. It fs not the
uiau w ho has seen the most, or
who has read the most that can
do this nor Is it the man that
can boast merely of uativq vigor-
aut capacity. The greatest of
all the warriors that went to the
Siege of Troy had uot the pre
eminence, because nature had
giveu him strength, nor because
he carried the largest bow, but
because self discipline Lad taught
him Low to ueud his bow.
Siuce we are to educate our
selves, we should strive to accom
plish that ouo tnuia objuct. We
should not turn back from tbe
howling wintry blast, nor wither
antler the blaze of summer, nor
we should never "magnify mole
hills Into mountains," bat let our
eye exaltlngly scale the eaglet
airy crag, and be always ready
to employ our time in the arqui
sition of nscful kuowlcdge, and
the cultivation of the mind, or to
nndertake any thing that Is prn
dent and lawful within tbe range
We should always be in pur
suit of knowledge, becanse he
that enlarges his cariosity after
the works of nature, demonstra
bly multipass the inlets to hap
piness. Therefore we should
cherish ardor In the persuit of
education, and remember that a
blighted spring makes m basren
year, and that the vernal flowers
however beautiful aud gay, are
only intended by nature as pre
paratives to autamnal frails.
Every one mnst, and will find a
livelihood j nor has society the
choice whether or not to provide
for Its members, and if an indi
vidual is not put In a way to
earn a living, he will seek it by
unlawful means. If he Is Dot
educated to lead a s6'ernd In
dustrious life, he will lead a life
ofdissipation, and if society re
fuses to take care of him, be will
force it to notice him. So we
see at once it is very important
to educate. Education Is to the
mind what cleanliness is to tbe
body, and if neglected the beau

other, wili be blemished, if not
