The eloquent preacher spoke aa follows : There la nothing In the voice or manner of the butcher to lndlrate to the ox that there Is death abend. Tbe ox thinks be la going to arloh puaturefleld of olover.where all day long be will revel In the herbaoeoua ruiuriance; but after awhiln the men and tbe boys close In upon him with sticks and stones and ihou ting, and drive blm through bars Into a doorway, where he la fastened. and with a well-aimed stroke the axe fella him; and so the anticipation of the redolent pasture Held Is oomptf telv disappointed.

There la nothing wrong about bormwlng money. There Is hardly a man In this bue but baa some Imea borrowed money. Vast estate bave been built on a bo- rowed dollar. But there are two kinds of borrowed money. ' Money borrowed for the purpose ot starting or keeping np legitimate enterprise and ex pense, and money borrowed to get that which ya ean do without. Tbe first is right the other la' wren. If you have money enoagb of vour own to buy a coat, however plain, and then you borrow money for a dandy' outfit you bave taken the Brat revotuMoa nf the wheel down rradn; Borrow for tbe beceesitiee: that may be wall. Borrow for. tbe Inxnrlee; that tip year prninret evev In tbe wrong direction. The Bible dlallnotly aavs the borrower servant of tbe lender.

All this make me solicitous In reirnnt to young men. and I want to make them nervous in regard to the contra tlon of unpayable debt. I give yoa a paragraph from my own experience. ; My first settlement aa poator waa In a village. My salary wna tbXX) and a parson age. The amount seemed enormo'is to me. I said to myself, "What I all this for one year!" I waa afraid of getting worldly under so muoh prosperity I I resolved to In vite all tbe oongregatlon to my bouse groups of twenty-five each. We began, and aa they were the beat congregation In all tbe world, and we felt nothing waa too good for them, we piled all tbe taiur lea on the tabic. I never completed the undertaking. At the end of six months I was In financial despair. I found what every young man learns In time to aave hlmielf, or too late, that you must mraure the alze of a man's brdy before you begin to cut the cloth for niseoat Whon a yonng man wilfully and of choice, having the comfort of life, goes Into the contraction of unpayable debts, he knows not Into what he goes. .
