"What a beautiful bridge between old age

the old man turns back to prayer aud worship,

Yes, but between its distant abutments the
bridge ol life has many high and iwful arches,
through which the wild waters dash and roar iu
wrath and desolation, l'rayer and worship
alone do not sustain these. Nature's solid rocks
mast lie aashaken beneath, and human art and
skill mast rear and solidify the etrncturo over

placed under their control. Neither the chtld'e

Science and art first—then faith and prayer
