People's Voice. Win. STRYKhK, fc-u.-iH ft?. ISSUED EVERT THURSDAY. Entered (or transmission by mall at wcond class rates. THURSDAY, DKOEMBKR 21. iww. The Plastic Mold. Milan Herald. Henry Ward Beecher has wisely said: "Youth is that period in which if you would educate men, they must be tducated. If they are not educated then they will not be edu cated and no repentance can change the fact. When the plates are pre pared for steel engravings the steel is made soft, asd then the graver works out the picture; and then the plate is put irt) a furnace and brought to a great hardness, so that impressions can be taken off by the hundreds without wearing it. Now, the time to engrave men is youth, when the plate is soft and ductile. Manhood is hard and cannot be cut easily, any more than tempered steel." To touch the world in more than One place the man must have brains throbbing with energy, if he would touch it right; and this departed de- vine has outlined the only possible way, proper development of brain po'ver in the morning of life. Hu man advancement will le only ac complished by swelling the legions of those who have learned to think on linfs of unselfishness, who have schooled the brain in ptastic mold, thing good books as the tools of transformation. Nature has thrown out every in ducement to waken the youthful dor mant power's, which, by proper cul ture, are susceptible of minute dis crimination;. And this knowledge alone is a storehouse of pleasure, and a tonic in search of after wis dom, besides a means of discipline. To observe the uufoiding of the flower, distinguishing its parts, no ting their different formations, is a pleasure enjoyed but by few, yet this special department of nature smiles alike on all. It takes but a short time to learn the different parts of a flower: The calyx, the outer part, signifies whorl; the corolla, the inner circle, is that which usually gives color to the flower. The stamens and the pistils are in the center and are the imme diate instruments in perfecting the seed, the agent of all reproduction. All fruit that goes so far to sustain human life, has its origin in the flower. This but faintly illustrates how nature tries to unfold itself to the mind of man, quickening his powers of investigation. And man is catch ing the inspiration of the great need of brain power, power to unfold the mysteries of God's hidden treasures, and such mighty leaps and bounds in discoveries, in invention, and ap pliances to the world's needs, will the closing century have to record. To keep pace with the present at tainments, and to have anything new to hand down to posterity, the brain must be kept at profitable work ear ly in life. Never in the history of man was there such need of well de veloped minds as today, and never before were the rewards more prom ising, it is :n the province ottnis generation to wipe from the face of the earth its two great curses, im pure literature, and the tobacco and rum traffic, and to make the county homes a delight to the eye, and the face of the earth in general to wear a cultured look. But unless the youth ful brain is put to work on subjects beneficial to the well bein? of man kind, and strengthened by an indus trious habit, maintaining a strong ;ysical frame, for a well developed mind that will cause its possessor to stretch himself in pursuit of that which will tend toward the enjoy ment of the beautiful, the pure, and the good, it will develop in the op posite direction, or remain dormant with its power shorn. Wake up, youthful mind, thai your latent powers nny be developed muscular power strengthened, vision of life enlarged, for you are ?!1 call ed upon to face many and mighty problems in every avenue of life's activity; and the proper develop ment of its brain powers, including the soul's e'ea' conception ofGcd will enable you to more fully com prehend life's mission, and to join in the ceaseless dipthony, that will break forever along the shores of eternity, giving glory and honor to Him who made it possible for you to touch the world aright in many places. As and So. Milan Herald. As idleness is a curse, so is lazi ness a vice. As man has a body that allies him to the ground, so he has a spirit that connects him with God. As thorns and thistles are the is sues of sin, so do they make the course of man laborious and painful. As the spirit ot cowardice is the fruit of nnbelief, so most of the com plaints of men spring Irora selfish ness. As the disposition of man's life is in God's hand, so ought he to seek his normal altitude and live jt at all hazards. As character is the inward state of man, so his conception of God depends upon his own mind and conscience. As he who is worthy of the name, is always an American wherever he may be, so should a Christian be a Christian anywhere on earth, As there is no skill by which John could live in pe.ice with Herod, so j men of integrity and refinement can have but one attitude toward cor ruption and iniquity, an attitude of uncompromising hostility. As the fruit tree can never be brought to its best without the pruning knife, so there is no human creature, but can illy afford not to submit to the chastening rod of Him "who doeth all things well." As a life spirit in wickednes is a garner of evil, ever pouring out its hoard of bitterness on the soul, so is that ol a life devoted to the service of God a treasure of bliss, supplying all the wants of the soul and as en during as immortality. It is not so much a matter of great importance as to whether God has revealed the whole of his divine nature to man as it is a question as whether we have apprehended so much of the divine nature as we are capable of knowing and sharing. Christmas. Milan JeraH. Why these festive dnys? While some have been established by man, others have been ordained of God. How natural It is for man to pass over from the spirit of thanksgiving l,o that of true devotion. Thankful for the bountiful provision? for the material needs of man, thankful for the provisions for his spiritual Deeds, and this latter has been forthcoming la the advent of the world's Redeem er. So great was the messwe that angels must brinjr the pond tidings, as man was not worthy to bear ir, for this message concerned all men. The angels told of the birth of a Savior of whom all men stand in need. The good news was not confined to the shepherds, but the 'Vreiit joy" was intended for every he trt of the human race. The glad tidings were fully unfolded. One has been born who is "a Savior" for the sick, the fclnful, the lost, and the perishing. Sent of God, as He was, not only to enlighten and rule and to suve Hvia temporal evil, but the evils from which He also delivers assail and de stroy the bodies and souls of men. As these Christmas festivies are intended to call to mind the gift of God His only Son to a lost, world, linking his Divine life to that of ours, by the presence of the b;ibe of Beth lehem, and as t his birth was neces sary for the life of the sou!, so is it nectssary for the soul to have its Christmas. T.. receive the full hene- tils of this festival day soul mus' rise into a consciousness of its inflate importance; and i'.s thoughts and purposes must become Chrisibke The soul-birth would be impossible if Christ had not been born in Ileih- lehera Has this spiritual birth taken pluiv in your soul? ir sr, you have a right to the enjoyment, of a h ippy Christ mas. If not, et, the anthems of great joy well up in your sou' for the fl;st time, and keep this coming Christ mas as a new man in Christ. Prevented a Trazedy.
