Royal Baking Powder is reported by
the U. S. Government, after official
tests, highest of all in leavening power.
It is the best and most economical;
a pure cream of tartar Baking Powder.
I have hoard thut some of the boys
say "old man Miles had better attend
to his own business " I wish it distinctly
understood, boys, that this is
just e'xactly what I am doing, and I
will not say anything cnac i nave not
the right to sny and my duty to say, as
I said in my second letter. I have
children, grandchildren, kinfolks,
neighbors and neighbors' children,
thatJ wish to save. The time of my
life is past to live for self and self
.alone, if there was ever a time. The
.man, woman or child who lives for
self alone fails of the object for which
they were created. We all are or
.should be "our brother's keeper."
Everyone that fails to do something
for humanity fails of tho duty required
at their hands from God.
Boys, life is too short, even if you
-should live as long as I have. While
I have no doubt it seems a long time
to you, but to me it has passed rapidly
away. I have passed far over the
hill top and am looking back and reviewing
the road traveled and wish
I could blot from my memory things
that I did in my youth and young
manhood things that I will never do
acain had I my life to live over.
Young' man. I do not ask you to do
one single thing that will take away
from, you any youthful pleasure,
only I warn you to be careful not to
engage in any amusement or any
fmstime that is calculated to lead you
nto bad habits. If you And you have
made misteps, that you have been
led astray, retrace them instantly.
Be careful, bo thoughtful, be always
on your guard, ''looking out for
breakers." You will find traps set for
.you everywhere, avoid them.
"One of the boys'' says he has
heard such expressions as "Mr.
Miles should practice what he preaches."
To all such I say, come to me
and toll mo of my imperfections. I
-am not perfect, which I confessed in
my last, but I promise everyone of
you to join in with you and work to
attain a higher life.
You are doing things that will bo a
dark spot in your memory, even if
;you live to be much older than I am.
It will never leave your memory, you
will have a depression of feelings
whenever you think of them. You
-are losing the confidence of every
respectable person, a great many of
have lost all ol their commence,
rou not loBt all yet. I have "stuck
by" the worst of you. This. you know
not merely by words but by acts.
A drunkard is not fit to live, say
nothing of dying. You will not perhaps
admit that you are drunkards.
Hoys, remember a pig is not a hog,
but a pig raakeB a hog. Drinking
liquor makes drunkards. No one
wants to be a drunkard, everyone
abhors the vory idea of being ono,
but just as certain, if you keep on
drinking liquor, keeping late hours,
engaging in revelry and debauchery,
.you will be drunkards just as sure as
you are in existence to-day.
I am learning more and more every
day something about the boys. I am
getting now ones on my list every
day. I know things that I am
.ashamed for the world to know, but,
boys, if you do not call a halt I will
expose you. I will never tell a lio on
you, you may depend on this. An
old friend and neighbor of mine used
to say "I.do not mind a lie being told
on mo, It is tho truth that hurts."
I copy "Lines to ray Little Boy,"
from my old friend Will S. Hays.
Boys read this, road thoso linos, read
thorn over and over again. There aro
.grand thoughts in them. Tho author
has beon ''one of the boys."
LINES TO MY LITTLE BOY.
My little boy, I never look
Into you childish face,
But what I think, old as I am,
1 would not take jour place,
For you can't be it toy but once,
Though I my childhood crave,
You're starting up tho hill of llfd,
I'm Hearing to my grave.
01 May God guide your footstept right,
And guard your gulloless tongue,
Andteucnjouhow to worship Him,
And lovo Illm while jou're young,
And iwtyjou live, that when youdle, '
A heavenly crown you'll win,
And may ou be n better man
Through llio than 1 have been.
'These rules adopt through all your life:
lie resol ite and strong,
And It you live up to them all,
My boy, you'll not do wrong.
The one aim of your life must be
To live as uirisil.uiM do,
Be'luvt) Hod gave i(u only sou
To die for su :h as you.
And don't forjet on Suiul ly nwrn
To yd to
You'll learn tlie "Ten Commandments''
LlkewlRe tlie "Golden Kulo,"
And every time yon go to church.
You'll And each step you've trod
Has brought you th.it intra closer ho.ne.
Ana one step nearer uou.
"Obey your parents," llttlo boy.
In nil they ask of you,
And alwHjs "do tlioti unto them,"
As they would do to joi.
As God loves you, so jou love them.
That when tlioy've passed nwny,
You'll walk the path they made for you,
And never go astray.
Bo honest, sober, truthful, kind;
Of sin, my boy, benire!
Remember Got., in id I your walks,
Is with you everywhere;
And when i you nightly kneel to pray!
And ask God' blessing too.
He'll bless your soul for Jesus sake,
And be a friend to you.
Fathers and mothers, take hold of
your boys, even if they are big boys.
Thoy aro our boys whether big or
little. Take them by the hand, go
with them to Sunday-school, to
church. Say "come boys," never say
"go boys." It depends on you to
form good habits in your children
while young. We havo greatly neglected
this. We take special pains
with tho girls, wo raise them pure
anu as spotiesB as little lambs. The
boys are raised like wolves both to
manhood and womanhood -when
the lambs are turned out among the
wolves to be devoured by them.
Teach the boys and girls both what
life is so thoy will bo able to fight
their own battles. The lack of this
teaching is filling the bagnios and
brothels of the world to-day with
seduced innocence It is terrible to
think of, but until the next goodbye.
John E. Miles.
