Young Man Keep Out of Debt.
I am'not a?preacherl neither the
?on of a preacher. However, I willi
take a text, and it will prove of
vital importa nee to everybody
young and old, especially to the
-?yoTJng^men woo are j?'st 8?tTtngco?t
?pon the voyage, of life. It is the,
bedrock on which to build a s ic-1
.?essful career. We are all out on
the;sea of life, an J each one must
be his own captain in temporal as
weil as in spiritual things; there
fore, each individual, must examine
bis ch art and see that the compass
points in the right direction,, in or
.der to round up a successful busi
ness life. I wish that I could im
press this truth upon every yountr
man's heart in all this broad land,
and that it could be written in red
letters upon the gates and door-post
of every house. Now let us stop for
st moment and tnink just what debt
is and what it means, and you ma\
then better understand what this
text is worth, or what it may be
worth to you. Debt is worst* than
cyclone, flood, or fire, lt is a ghost
that will not down, but will ait up
on your bed post at the midnight
hour as a nightmare that will mb
you ot" sweet sleep. It is a shackl?
to your energy. It stops the pace of
the fleetest, it holds a man to the
upot when golden opportunity is
bujt one step away, it keeps a fel
3ow's nose to the grindstone. There
may be flowers along life's pathway,
'but the man in debt finds that his
arm ie too short to reich the n. He
is like one with a ball and chain to
hts lee, he cannot be his own mas
ter Others dictate or interfere with
his plans. Like a dog with a block,
.be? is kept within certain bounds
and bis. locomotion is necessarily
very slow, but he has to keep mov
ing to get there at all, and at th.-*
end of the year he finds that buckle
and tongue won't meet. He doesn't
have time to sit down and think and
plan. There may be shaded spots
along the way,but only the man free
from debt may find and enjoy them.
Young man, if you will put your
shoulder to the wheel and pus.h with
might and main, and if the smutty
end of the log comos td you, take
right mold of it, arid then live in
th * fifteenth Psalm, you . will be1
just as sure to succeed in life as a
loose horse is to run ahead of the
one that is hobbled. Just as sure asl
a cow that is not fastened is going |
to find the tall grass, while the one
staked may have to chew the stub
ble unless she breaks the rope, no
man will ever have smooth sailing
nntil ho breaks the rope . of debt
that bolds him down. Debt is not
only a shackle, a quicksand, but it
is an eating cancer. It ruins the dis
position, produces depair, eats away
life itself. This di.ease-this can
cer-not only eats away the energy
and thc brain, but it pollutes the
atmosphere of your home, place? a

your doorway, throws a shalom
about your fireside, and always finds
you flat on your back w heir op por
tunity knocks at your door. It has
ruined many a good roan and
blighted many happy homes.' It is
better to die with a quick pain than
a slow fever The point is this, thal
we had better deny ourselves 'of th<
luxuries of life than to go in debt
for them.-Make up your mind now
not to go in debt,' and 'say in the
language of the old Scotchman, my
name is McGregor, and this is my
native he.ith, and by the eternal
powers here I will forever stand.
Debt is not only a nightmare, a
cancer, a shackle to/ your feet, but
it is a horse leech sucking the very
life-blood fmm the home. It is a
stinging adder, a biting serpent.
Keep your hand upon the throttle,
