There comes a time in the life of nearly every young man when he must decide what path he will follow for his life's work, unless he has little character, and is willing to drift wherevor the waves of chance may carry him. This is perhaps the most important period in the life of a young man, and his future success and hap pinoss depend largely upon the deci sion ho makes. It is not always wise . to jump at the first thing that p re- 8Jts itself, whether his abilities are ' touur man starts in life with a def I init Pn of aotion, he starts upon a ' much higher plane than one of the same abilities, who begins with aim ply a willingness to work, and with out any plan beyond earning enough for his daily wants. The latter may perhaps earn more at first, but the former is certain to overtake him and before manhood has been reached to leave him far behind. A definite aim in life may bo in any direction as long as it gives the possessor an incentive to strive for self-improvement, but the ambitions and aims that lead a young man along mechanical channels, to spend several years in learning a trade, are not popular with the average American youth. Our country is a manufacturing country, its industrial enterprises are the wonder of the world, and have created a continual demand for skill ed workmen. In view of this demand and the entirely inadequate supply of machines, Tho Woodwork Depart ment of Berea College is to be extend ed to include a Trade School iu which will be taught the Carpenter's and Cabinetmaker's trade, to those stu dents who may elect to take this course and who show sufficient apti tude for mechanical work to insure that the instruction will not be wast ed. There are many young men who have during the past year, expressod a desire to learn the Carpenters Trade and to them and others, this opportun ity is offered, This is a two year's course and includes tho construction of articles embodying all of the joints known to carpentry, and also the fram ing of a house and instruction in near ly all processes used in its construc tion, as well as in various pieces of furniture and in general repairs around buildings and farm machines. A young mau having had the above can feel certain that ho has an educa tion that will enablo him him to meet life's difficulties with more confidence iu his own ability to earn and hold a place for himself in this busy world of ours than is possible to tho man who has uovor trained his hand to serve his brain.
