Choosing Associates. A man may choose as the toy of an hour, a woman unworthy of the sweet name of woman, because she has dishonored it, and he may for a time keep her company, but few if any choose such for life companions. When a man wants a wife, a life companion, he seeks for one who is pure in life and habits All too often men un worthy the name of manhood find companions from among the pur est and sweetest of women, and make life a hell for them. But surely, such things could be ac complished only by deceit—no sane woman would make such a mistake purposely. But how many about us in the world are making a mistake just as awful and far reaching as that! How many choose drunkards and debauchees for companions with the purpose of keeping such com pany for all eternity? If a man is satisfied to go through life with no effort for education, he can not expect to have educated people for associates. If he is satisfied with uncouth manners and per sonal filthiness, he cannot expect the cleanest and most refined peo pie to assoaiate with him. Neither can a man reasonably expect to keep the company of filthy souled people all through this life and then mix among God’s redeemed ones in eternal climes for all eternity. People who are hoping for heaven while yet associating with wicked allies of the Devil in this life, are hoping without any reason for hope. According to the teaching of the Word, humans must choose here their associates for eternity, and fit themselves for the conditions they expect for that future existence —Selected. Mrs. J. M.
