HY friends are all Importunate That this year may be fortunate. I They weave a special wishing spell -A- About this year to guard it well; Lest any harm should come to thee Because old Time says "Twenty-three I" Grace and good cheer attend this year And rout all shapes of doubt and fear. But It will be well not to put too much faith in resolutions. Resolutions are often the vapors of auto-intoxication. They are the rainbows that succeed the last storm, before the tears have dried up. They are the halos that we place upon our heads too soon. They are the thin ice that glitters but lets us through. There Is more power in resolution. If a man can overcome himself he has conquered his worst enemy. He will have to use both fists to knock himself out and both feet to kick himself out ; he will have to get himself down and sit upon himself before he can be himself. This is worth while, but it is un pleasant and difficult. Resolutions are apt to fall before it or be entirely for gotten, but resolution can do It and have force to spare.
