SOUTHERN STANDARD MCMINNVILLE, .TENNESSEE. SATURDAY. FEB 28, 1SQI.
A Talk About Beading.
You should treat a book as you
would a person with whom you are
talking for information ; that ia,
question it, read it over and turn back
and try to get at the meaning ; if the
book itself does not answer the ques
tions you raise, go to some other
book, ask a dictionary or encyclope
dia for an explanation. And if a
book treated in this way does not
teach you anything or does not in
spire you, it is of no more service to
you than the conversation of a dull,
ignorant person. I just used the word
"inspire." . You do not read all books
for facts or for information merely,
but to be inspired, to have your
thoughts lifted up to noble ideas, to
have your sympathies touched, your
ambition awakened to do some
worthy or gaeat thing, to become a
man or woman of character and con
sideration in the world. You read
the story ofsa fine action or a heroic
character the death of Socrates, or
the vayage of Columbus, or the sacri
fice of Nathan Hale, or such a poem
as "The Lady of the Lake" not for
information only, but to create in
you a higher ideal of life, and to give
you sympathy with your fellows and
with noble purposes. You cannot
begin too young to have these ideas
and these purposes, and, therefore,
the best literature in all the world is
the best tor you to begin with. And
you will find it the most interesting.
Reading, then, is the easiest way ot
being entertained, and it is the most
convenient way of getting into your
mind what you want to know. I
do not think it is very serviceable to
make a list of books for children to
read. No two have exactly the same
aptitudes, tastes, or kinds of curiosity
about the world. And one story or
bit of information may excite the in
terest of a class in one school, or the
children in one family, which will
not take at all with others.
The one thing is to take hold some

Large towels of heavy crash for

easily washed than a holder. They
are, moreover, more convenient than

The exact measurements of the
tick of the pillows now generally
used is thirty inches in length and
from twenty to twenty-two inches in
width. A square pillew, or nearly
square, thirty inches by twenty-sev
en, is not often used now, as it is no
longer customary to display pillows
during the day, but to use a round
bolster. If the pillows vary from the
width given, they will be very in
convenient, as the only widths of
pillow-case muslin and linen that
come are a yard and an eight, a yard
and a quarter or a yard and a half.
The last width fits the "square pil
low," and is therefore not as much
used as the medium width.

reading to find out about things as
you use your eyes and ears. I knew
a boy, a scrap of a lad, who almost
needed a high chair to bring him up
to the general level of the dining
table, who liked to read the encyclo
pedia, lie was always hunting round
in the big books of the encyclopedia
books about his own size for what
he wanted to know. He dug iu it as
another boy would dig in the woods
for sassafras root. It appears that
he was interested in natural history
and natural phenomena. He asked
questions of these books, exactly as
he would ask a living authority, and
kept at it till he got answers. He
knew how to read. Soon that
boy was an authority on earth
quakes. He liked to have the con
versation at table turn on earth
quakes, for then he seemed to be the
tallest person at the table. I suppose
there was no earthquake anywhere of
any importance but that he could tell
where it occurred and what damage
it did, how many houses it buried,
and how many people it killed, and
what shape it left the country
which had been shaken. From
that he went on to try to discover
what caused these disturbances, and
this led him into other investigetions,
and at last into the study of electrici
ty, practical as ell as theoretical
He examined machines and invented
machines, and kept on reading, and
presently he was an expert in elec
tricity. lie Knew how to put in
wires, and signals, and bells, and to
do a number of practical and useful
things, and almost before he was able
i to enter the high school, he had a
great deal of work to do in the city,
and three or four men under him.
These men under him had not read
as much about electricity as he had.
An active minaeu Doy or girl can
find out a great deal about the world
we live in by the habit of attention,
by looking round ; and he or she can
get much inspiration from the exam
nle of good men and women. But
this knowledge can be added to in
definitely by reading, and people will
read it they have a genuine desire to
know things, and are not, as we say,
"too lazy to live."

It is an old saying that if you aim
at the barn door you will never hit
the weathercock on the steeple;
which simply means that we must
aim high if we would hit high. It is
just as true in the Christian life. In
the great Christian Endeavor mem
bership there are Just two classes-
young men and young women. Both
are greatly influenced by their ideals.
We all are. A high ideal is a help
toward a higher life. No sculptor
touches the marble without a definite
idea "I see angele in it !" No build
er begins without a finished plan.
So, too, in character building we need
a plan, an Ideal toward which we
work. I have thought that to every
earnest young man in the ranks of
Christian Endeavor there is a worthy
ideal suggested by the motto en
graved on the coat of arms of the
Prince of Wales. He ascribes his po
sition to the grace of God ; then be
low are engraved the words, "Whose
I am, and whom I serve." This has
the ring of true Christian knighthood
"Whose I am," to bGod's. Then,
"Whom I serve," to serve God.
First, belonging to God, dedicated to
his name, given over to his worship.
Then, "Whom I serve," consecrated
to his cause, kept for his use, made
over hand and heart to his service.
To be God's and to serve God ! Who
could imagine a higher ideal? Such
an aim. steadily adhered to. would
make any life noble. And to any
Christian young lady there is a beau
tiful ideal suggested by a story to be
found in Grecian mythology. The
story is to explain how the island of
Cyprus came to be very beautiful
We are told of a goddess who walked
with a soft and delicate tread about
the island, and that, following her
steps, every green herb and lovely
flower sprang up by the way. This
may become a literal fact in the life
of every Christian young woman
for if into her soul God has been
weloomed, along her footsteps every
plant of Christian usefulness may
spring up, and every beautiful flower
of Christian adornment may grow
until all shall unite to call her
