Many young farmer boys want to
go to the city. A cripple would
have many more opportumties in

go! No, this boy stayed in the
country,-to make shoes and mend
watches, and,-what else would you
guess? Well, he mproved a farm.
That. is. he directed the work, -rid

invented a capital rolling chair for
himself, for convenience in getting

he was welcomed everywhere, and

How to Be Great
Do not try to do a great thing;
you may waste all your life wa,iting
for the opportunity which may nev
er come. But since little thtings are
theny claiming your attention. do
thnas they come, from a great mo
tive, for the glory .of God, to win
His smile of approval, and 'to do
good to men. It is harder to 'plod
in obscurity, acting thus. than to
stand on the high places of the field,,
within the view of all. and do deeds
of valor at which rival armies stand
still to gaze. But no such act goes
without the swift recognition and
-the ultimate recompense of Christ.
To fulfill faithfully the duties of
your station: to use to the utter-'
most the gifts f your ministry ; to
'bear chafing unthankful and evil:
to be content to be martyrs before
the 'pillory and stake. to find the one
noble trait in people wvho try to mo
1est you: to put the kindness con
strction on unkind acts and words:;
to love with the love of God even
the 1mthankful and evil: to be con
tent to be a fountain in the midst
of a wild valler of stones. nourish
ing a few lichens and wvild riwers,
or now and again a thirsty sheep:
and to do this always, and not for
the praise of man. but for the sake
of dod-this makes a great lifte.

keep at it till we like it."

Such Proof as this Should Convince any
The public endorsement of a local cit
zen is the best proof that can be pro
duced. None better, none stronger can
be had. Whet, a man comes forward
and testifies to his fellow citizens, ad
dresses his friends and neighbors you
may be sure he is thoroughly convinced
or he would not do so. 'Telling one's
experience when it is for the public
good is an act of kindness that should
be appreciated. The following state
