The man who is in the highest stale of prosperity, and who thinks his fortune most secure, knows not if it will remain unchanged till evening. The line which separates regard and love is so tine that the young heart transgresses the boundary before it is a ware of having even verged upon it. The grandest and strongest na tures are ever tin* calmest. A fiery restlessness is the symbol of frail ties not yd outgrown. The repose of power is its richest phase and its clearest testimony. The hills of lofty endeavor and high achievements lie all around us. and if we never catch a glimpse of the \iews they afford, we need not com plain that it is because of the insuperable limitations of our surroundings. Without earnestness no man is over great or does really great things. He may be the cleverest of men: he may be brilliant, enter taining. popular : but. if lie has not earnestness, lie will want weight. No soul-moving picture was ever painted that had not in it depth of shadow. If you cannot be happy in one wav. be happy in another: and this facility of disposition wants but little aid from philosophy, for health and good humor are almost the whole affair. Many run about after felicitv. but they are like an honest man looking for his hat while it is on his head or in his hand. Discipline, like the bridle in the hand of a good rider, should exer cise its influence without appear ing to do so should be ever active, both asasupport and as a restraint, vet seem to lie easily in hand. It must always be ready to check or to pull up. as occasion may require; and only when tin* horse is a run awav should the action of the curb he perceptible. Everybody is bound to some kind of service: everybody is de pendent upon his fellows. The veriest recluse must have food, •clothes, and a shelter; and. if he can make these himself, he is still dependent upon the courtesy of his neighbor to let him alone. It is impossible to be wholly inde pendent, and the attempt might as well be abandoned. But it is jrossible to be reasonable; that is within the reach of every one. Wealth and fame and high po sition are often the signs of quali ties commanding our highest re spect. They frequently speak of industry, economy, skill, talent, intellect, wisdom. As such they are deserving of honor. But, when we honor them not as signs, but as realities, not for what they repre sent. but for what they are. when we crave them and struggle for them, and resolve to gain them at any price, even at the sacrifice of the very qualities for which they stand, then we are taking the very life of real respectability. Do not expect to be treated as| you have treated others. If you! have been charitably disposed, orj have assisted others, do not enter-1 fain the vain expectation that you will receive a somewhat propor tionate return of thanks and kind ness. The reward for such assist ance is the pleasure and gratifica tion to yourself of knowing that you have been the means of reliev ing the wants or alleviating the sufferings of others. This is the only reward that any man can ex pect. and gives more satisfaction in the long run than any other. Every one who has the charge <>f youth should see not only that they are protected from what is evik but that they are surrounded bv what is good, and be careful not only to preserve them from the malaria of vice, but to place them in the pure and bracing at mosphere of high thoughts, noble ideals, and worthy deeds. There are two influences ever pressing upon them; the one is direct, vol untary. intentional —the other, in direct, involuntary, unpremedi tated. The former all conscien tious persons endeavor to exercise; the latter, because, like the atmos phere, it eludes our grasp, is often neglected and forgotten. —From The Philadelphia (Pa.)
