We have been viewing the usher ing in of another year. The old year has departed as silently an the twilight deepens into darkness; w hile the new year has dawned with all the glory that attaches only to the morning. Our hearts should be crowded with deep solemnity as we realize that the cycle of the months has “swung full circle round” and another year has slipped away and is fading in the half remembered, irrevocable past, to blend with the dust of ages gone, arid a new year has been thrust upon us, along whose paths, an yet untried, our un certain feet must venture. We seem to have been standing like some traveler who has at last attain ed some long sought lofty height, from which summit we can look backward over twelve months of I the diminishing past with searching I can look forward as far as the eager eye can peer into the slowly yielding future. Having passed into history, the old year lingers with us only as a memory, but sweet or bitter has de pended largely upon ourselves. The new year stands in view, radi ant with rising hopes and full of noble possibilities; whether they shall be met and realized will be determined by our daily liviag. No* lit (i lln> new year lias opened bo tore us, tli«»n* is some satisfaction ! t in lecltug th.ii hii opportunity is ! j again atlorded us ol m iking h really ; new start. Kach true heart in wliicU there hums a spark «>t |ife ! divine turns eagerly toward the unblemished page an lscans earuest ty the unirod,len path of the uew year; not with wonder simply, nor only hope, but with a fervent re solve to let the dead past bury its dead, and with the determination that a nobler, sweeter, richer spirit shall glisten in the soil light of onr existence and a more strenuous purpose give a detinue god to life. — Uev.
