Tbl? la Mother'? day. Tba history
of tb? celebration ls not familiar to
us, but ,at any rate this day is set
apart as Mother's day. Let every man
today wear a white flower io remem
brance of his mother. There is noth
ing in all of this world like the mother
love. The angels are not permitted
to witneas anything in glory more
beautiful tuan the. tender smile of the
good mother, as she gazes in rapture
upon the nott little piece of humanity
cuddled in her arms-"My Boy." -
Oh, boys, if you but knew. Some
day there may7 come the time when
your heart will feel to bursting with
the longing of just one word with
Mother. JWhllc you have her, love her.
While she ls here try to make her
happy. When she is gone, meet her
in the fair skies beyond.
if mother love were an army, there
would bb no wrecked lives, no torn
hearts,, no longing soul, for sin would
be driven forever from the world and
love would triumph. Aud 'f the boy but
knew the depth of his mother's love,
there is no power un earth that could
make him* linger in the oaths of world
liness, or dally in tho flowered fields
of sinful pleasure. The mother knows
best. Do, what she says.
