Shun The Verge.
' ! , 1
In one of the passes of the Itockies
a perilous curve that runs along the
edge of. a, precipice, has ; become' fa
moas fqr 1 the number of accidents
occuring there. One of the stage dri
vers gained a reputation by , never
having a mishap at this point,
through many years. - Being asked
the8eeret of his-safedriving he re
plied that lie r always kept as far
away lrom the verge as possible.
This is tbe secret of all safe driving.
No one plunges over the precipice
who does not venture near the edge.
Youiig man drive clear of the verge !
The temptation is never to drive
over, to run into full-grown sin, to
plunge, headlong intq the raids of evil
courses. Satan knows better than
that. , In vain is the net spread in the
sight of any bird. He bids you only
venture near the brink. Take a sin
gly glass of Jiquor, it will do you no
harm, for it is only one glass. Go to
the disreputable place only to see the
world . ana Know, what is going on
You need not yield to 6in, but you
ought to knQw whaj.jin is t likty Do
not rob your employer, but to use for
your own purpose the car-fare or the
stamps, that is little harm; Play the
cards, not for'moheybut as an inno-

gamble! "Drive close to the edge

And as to the idea thAt n mother

years, that Is as baseless In fact as it
is in philosophy. No mother on
earth ever yet won her child's freest,
truest confidence in its maturer years
if she failed in ' securing it before
that period. No 'mother would
deserve such confidence if she

school or at labor; or in the 1 enjoy
ment of well-chosen companionship
outside of their home; but this should
never be accepted as a necessity until
the mother's hold on the children's
confidence is so strong, through the
experience of the years that are gone,
that only the close of life can ' dimln-
sh, can change the conscience-power

:'As a rule, a child's taste, and char

permanent destiny, are practically
shaped before the child is seven years
of age. A mother's failure of a moth

years can never be made good by

"It is impossible but that offenses

misunderstandings. Irritations arise;
frictions make their appearance:
fiurts are received. How hard
it Is amid all these conditions to
guard one's tongue, and leave unspo

Never te Idle.
We commend the following from
the Lynchburg Advance to those of
our readers! if we have any, who are
said to have been "born tired :"
Idleness is the great destrover of
young men. It is sure to work out
the ruin of the most talented. Give
a young man plenty to do and he is
safe. Allow him to spend his hours
in idleness loaf around bar rooms
stand on the street corners r stay
qbout home, with no higher ambition
than just , to eat, drink, sleep .and
smoke, and you lay for him the foun
dation of future disgrace. Parents,
you may depend upon it, that youf
growing up boys finds little that adds
to their manhood in the walk of idle
ness. Better to give them some lion
orable trade than to trust to ehinee
in some windfall of luck or fortune to
benefit them in after life.
It youug mw are out of employ
ment, let this great truth be impress
ed .upon their r minds, that time,
though it brings no money, is valu
able. Self-improvementi should, be
kept up, so that every spare hour may
bring to its. possessor, some valuable
acquisition.: Enrich your minds by1
the careful study of some good work,
for you may rest assured that your
labor is none the less for being in
telligent. ' Better be found studying
at home, thereby Improving anil dis
ciplining your1 mind, than to be seen
on the street corners with your hands
in you. pockets, a cigafetteor cigar
stuck between your lips, the very
picture of laziness. ' ' '
' Nothing can be accomplished with
out labor. Excellence in every trade
oi' i'rofe.ston depend upon it. It N
not the idlersjhat make their' mark
jn the .world, but the, earnest, go
ahead men, who never stop for little
troubles or give up for great ones, but
who go forward, determined to . be
and do something in h:. world.,,
