What is more beautiful than the
field of growing corn? From, the
time the small blades burst through
the rain softened and sun wanned
ground, on through its various stages
of taller stalks and ever changing
green, until the blades change to the
color of old, gold and the stalks
are bowed' down with the fully ripen
ed ears of corn, glistening in the au
tumn sun, and now for. the first time
peeping forth from the shuck, open
ed by the frosts of the coming winter,
it is indeed glorious to contemplate,
and gives joy and hope not only to
the farmer who planted it but to all
While the growing corn is a thing
of joy, and beauty through all its
stages in the field, its day of useful
ness to man is not to be found, un
til the harvest time comes, when the
glorious ears arc .plucked by the
farmer, and transferred to his home,
to be distributed, as the bread of life
for both man" and beast the "whole
What is grander than yonder ma
jestic oak, stretching forth ilsj'great
gnarled limbs towards the skies, and
towering above its brothers like some
great giant. The snows and sun
shine of an hundred years have fil
tered through its leaves and limbs
and in its mighty strength, it laughs
and jeers at the storms and sleets
which beat against it to no avail.
But now its time of real usefulness
to man has comc, it has ripened into
full fruition, for already the master
woods-man has gone through the for
est and marked this, tree. Sopn hi-
sturdy men will follow him, anfl with
great saws cut aud remove; v this
mighty moimrch from its native
heath, leaving behind as the oulv ev
idence of its one-time magnitude and
grandeur the great broad

body of the tree, becomes a pVrt o.
the beautiful homes, which slieltc
and protect us, ami in manyothc
ways finds its dav of real usefulness
A flower garden is indeed beauti
ful, and brings great joy to hearts,
but the days in which the beautiful
blossoms grow and romp and play
with luxurious idleness in the sun
shine of their beloved garden, arc
not the really useful days.
The most beautiful rose does not
find its time of fruition in life, its
day of real usefulness, until it is
plucked and carried with love nind
ood cheer to the bedside of a sick
friend. The shy, modest lily-of-thc-vaUey,
hiding behind the shelter of
the dark green leaves, dreams of its
day of usefulness when it shall have
been made into a bridal veil.
The sweet violets, which my lady
loves so well, do not know how use
ful they can be, until some day they
arc gathered with gentle hands, and
sent as a token of sweetheart love.
The trees, the flowers, the growing
crops, and all the goodly things werj
made for the use of man, but of man,
God's best, His last and most perfect
creation, what shall wc say? For
whose use was man made, and what
is his destiny? Man was created
for the use of God Himself.
What a mighty thought it is, that
we should be of use to God. Can
it be possible that God has a purpose
and use for us in the life to come?
Indeed it is, for this world is God's
great cornfield, His vast forest, His
magnificent flower garden, and we,
His children are His ever ripening
ears of corn, His growing trees, His
beautiful blooming roses.
Since wo like tho trees, the flowers,
and the growing crops of corn, are
each day going on towards our har
vest time, our day of fruition, when
our time of real usefulness shall be
gin, we should strive in this life, to
become mighty oaks, to grow into
perfect ears of corn, and to let the
days of our lives unfold with a
much fragrance, and beauty, as do
the leaves of the most beautiful rose.
These days here, arc but as our
school days; after all, we ac only
little children at school, autf vhile

can whatever is our lot or portion
in life to do, we should also run and
play, at the play-tii.cs, gathering all
tho sunshine and happiness wc can
find in this life, and remembering
that it takes the sunshine as well as
the rain to' color the rose, to
strengthen the oak, and to ripen the
car of corn.

So when 'Some pure,' pei'fect, 'and

must remember, the beautiful rose
that only yesterday we plucked in the
height of its beauty and fragrance
to bo taken, to the bedside of our
friend, and then wc will know that
our gentle woman has been taken

and' that our great man, our dear

to the great wisdom and knowledge

without fear or hesitation, for you
could see the cheerful tire within
through the window, and you knew

comfort vou should find there.
That is the way we should try to
