A FOOLISH CHOICE.
D. W. Hiott.
Sonme years ago in a little town in
a Western state a very beautiful
young woman lived. She had a
8weetheart living in the town who
was a struggling young lawyer of
good character and line ability, but
as yet without fame or fortune.
He loved the young woman very ar
dently, but she was undecided for
a wvhile, but as wvell as I remember
at last sh.- accepted hm and they
wvene engagedl. A great pailatial
gathering was held in the little towna.
A state official rodle at the head of
a procession that came to the meet
ing. He w~as dressed in a brilliant
uniform. HIe was a man somewhat
adlvanced in years, was a widower
and a heav'y drinker. D~uring the
day he was introduced to this young
woman, and apparently fell desper
ately in love with her'. She was
charmed wvith his uniform, brass but
tons andl his position as a state of
ficer wvould give her staninlg inl so
clety. And like othe's, she lounged
to get into what 'she thought would
be high society. She. liroke .off ,her.
engagement wvith the young man and
engaged herself to this 0old man with
the uniform. At last the day came
for the wedding to take place. The
old 'man came in a special train fur
nished for the occasion. They were
married and he carriedl awvay his
bride in this special car. The old
man continued to dIrink. When his
term of. office expired; his money
gave out, then her imaginary love
gave out and at the end( of two years
of married life her father brought
her back home and everything she
.pessessed in the way of this wvorld's
goods he brought in a two horse
wagon. Her heart broken, and
worse, her spirit broken, she left the
old ex-olmeer to dIrink and (lie.
Quite a difference between the way
she wvent away anil the wvay she came
back. The younk lawyer, wvith dis
appointed hopes at tirst, went 0on
with his work bravely and succeeded
in his profession.
Girls often make very foolish
choice in the man she marries. One
ahudnever choose a life compan
ion for the reason that he has
money or position, but you ought to
he certain that the one you select
for a life- companion has good char
ieter and be sure that you love him,
nolt the fine clothes he wears or thc
position he may hold, for the clothE
will wear out and the position ht
holds may be lost and then you will
have nothing to cing to, if there is
no love, but if you truly and sincere
ly love each other, property may go
but love holds on and happiness re
mains. So many people choose the
glitter of the world instead of the
religion of Jesus Christ. And like
the young woman who chose the glit
tering uniform instead of a real
man, those who chose the world in
stead of Christ will find out the fear
ful, the awful mistake they have
