In the excitement of the moment, the loss may not be keenly felt, but as the years ride by In their swift chariots, lines mark the face and strands of silver streak the hair, there comes to the loser an inex pressible sense of loneliness which sharply reminds him or her of the glorious sun that has set behind the purple bills. A friendship which multiplied joys and divided sorrows Is gone forever. As you repeat this word "gone" In the night when you are alone, and again in the morning and at Inter vals through the day, it comes upon you with anew and terrible meaning. How gladly you would erase it, but In spite of your oft boasted strength Uimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittiiiiiimiiu Kiddies six I I Will M.

Ten years more and be will be a man In stature— a size that seems to him far beyond attainment. To the boy of twenty-one, ten years, while not a lifetime. Is a long stretch ahead. At the end of the coming ten years he will be well on his way to wher •ever he Is going, success or failure. If he could understand Just how much those ten years mean, just what can be' done with them, Just what they will yield If rightly culti- j vated, there would he far less! trouble and distress In the world. To the man of forty, ten years are ten years which must not be wasted. The next ten years are his best, as far as productivity Is concerned. If he has not made the lust ten years count, he still has a chance with the next ten. THE CHEERFUL CHERUB ■■ j —.

Like a beggar you sup on Its dry crusts, and go to bed night after night with an ache In your heart and a sting In your conscience. Yet you keep going crookedly about the byways and highways of life and continue year after year the ragged practice of unbending your neck or curving your Ups with a friendly smile. It no longer matters so much how your behavior appears to the glar ing eyes of the world, so you per sist stubbornly to air your pride and flout It In public places, dropping dally a little lower from the high Ideals so sacred to you In the peace ful, hallowed days of friendship. In the background of every pic ture depicting human unhappiness you will find an ugly blur of color quite at variance with the rules of harmony, caused hy a slip of the tongue or a spurt of passionate anger between two persons, communities or nations. If you will study the blur Intently, you will find that It Is the evil thing that destroys peace and strews battlefields with rivulets of blood. If you have a true friend, give him or her the best of which pure friendship Is capable of giving; or. If you have quarreled, break the truce and heaven will bless you!

Look at your remaining years as an asset. Examine the next ten of them for opportunity, and see If you cun allot to each enough work to carry you at a better pace into the next decade. Ten years wisely employed at any time after twenty ought to make a man either a Success or a failure. They may not bo enough to bring a fortune, but they ought to bring habits and methods which later will Insure independence. Compare the next ten years with the last, and determine that these stretches of time, now empty and un improved, shall he filled with achieve ment that is worth while. , You can put into them almost any thing you choose—work, effort, thought, or idling, and time wasting. Almost any man can be made or broken In ten years. You have at least that time before you If you are the age of the average newspaper reader. Make up your mind that even If the last ten years counted for noth ing the next ten will count for much. Make that purpose, and stick to It. And these coming ten years will be the best you have ever known. (Copyright by John Blake.) O World’* Water Power.
