"There's nothing new
under the sun," according to a very
old saying. It's true, too, In a sense.
But in another sense it most certainly
isn't true. For there is something
new every time New Year's day comes
There are several things that are

Rev. John Sherman had a right to
make his "reasonable request," If prac
ticing what one preaches gives that
right. His "three score and ten were
busy years. He was born at Dedham,
Essex, England, and before he was
twenty-one he was an A. B. and A. M.
of Trinity college, Cambridge, a min
ister of the Church of England and a
uritan on his way across the Atlantic
to the Massachusetts Bay coiony.
There was no church for him, since
the only three in existence Boston.
Salem and Watertown had efficient
ministers. So ae was one of the orig-
nal planters" of Wethersfield. Conn..
and a "watcher," 1634-40. Then he
was one of the founders of Milford.
New Haven plantation. Next he was
magistrate representing Milford in
the New Haven colony and also
charged with the duty of dividing land.
Meanwhile he preached wherever op
portunity offered.
In 1647 he became the minister of
the Watertown church. There he
preached till his death in 1685. Church
and state were pretty much the same
thing in those days, so the village af
fairs kept him a busy man. He found
time, however, to publish for many
years an almanac, for which he made
air the astronomical calculations and
wrote the text. He was also the first
fellow and overseer of Harvard uni
versity. Incidentally he also found time
to marry twice. Cotton Mather in his
"Magnalia Christl Americana," says he
had 26 children ; this is a misstate
ment, but he did have 16. His epi
taph in Latin on the tombstone in East
Waltham. Mass.,. thus sums up His
life :
"Sacred to the memory of John
Sherman, a man distinguished for pi
ety, character and truth ; a profound
theologian ; as a preacher a veritable
Chrysostoin ; unsurpassed in his knowl
edge of the liberal arts, particularly
mathematics; a faithful pastor of the
Church of Watertown in New Eng
land ; an overseer and fellow of Har
vard college. After a life of faith
ful service to Christ In the church
for upwards of 45 years in the full
ness of time he passed away and
received from Christ the palm of vic
tory, in the seventy-second year of his
age, August 8, A. D. 1685."
New Year Gifts
As to the New Year's gift custom, it
is supposed to have been derived from
the Romans, but is probably much
older. Suetonius and Tacitus men
tion it. Claudius issued a decree for
bidding the demanding of presents ex
cept on New Year's day. The Roman
colonists In Britain found that the
Saxons kept. New Year's in the same
fashion. Starting as a pleasant,
friendly custom, it rapidly became an
Let us hope that the "reasonable
request" that this early Puritan put
to himself was to him "eternally prof
itable." In any event, he stands forth
as a fine sample of a sturdy American
pioneer family that has given four
Immortals to the nation Roger Sher
man," one of the framers of the Dec
laration of Independence; General W.
T. Sherman; Secretary of State John
Sherman; Vice President James S.
Certainly his request is one that
is always reasonable. And it is one
that was never more reasonable than
now. The year 1922 Is a year when
every good American should endeavor
"duly to prize and diligently to im
prove time." It is a year with a chal
lenge. It Is a year with a promise.
Though in folly and In blindness
And in sorrow still we grope.
Yet In man's Increasing kindness
Liea the world's stupendous hope.
And it Is a reasonable request to ev
ery red-blooded, thinking, patriotic
American. Such a man knows that
nobody can stand still ; that he has
either to progress or fall back. The
progressive man accepts responsibili
ties as the measure of his capabili
ties. He never shirks them, for he rec
ognizes in them the price he must pay
for advancement.
Competition is going to be keen this
year. The dollar is going to be hard
to get. Men who have been getting
twice what they were before and have
had lots of money to spend are going
to feel the pinch. It looks as If ev
erybody who works for a living will
have to work a little harder. It- may
be that life will seem hard. But what
of it? Life has always been hard
perhaps it was meant to be. Anyway,
it is something that has got to be lived
and mastered. It's the business of men
"to greet the unseen with a cheer" and
"to advance on chaos and the dark."
Of course all of us cannot have a
hand in the big things that must be
done in meeting the challenge of 1922.
But if all of us do the little things we
may, 1922 will Indeed be the "Happy
New Year" of our greetings.
To save a little money,
'To praise a little more;
To smile when days are sunny
And when the tempests pour;
To pay less heed to sinning
And more to kindly thought;
To see beyond the winning
Just how the fight was fought;
To be a little kinder,
A little braver, too,
To be a little blinder
To trivial things men do.
To give my hand to labor,
Nor whimper that I must;
To be a better neighbor
And worthier of a trust.
To play the man, whatever
The prize at stake;
God grant that I shall never
These New Year pledges break.
Anyone looking for something to do
in the way of helping along can help
bolster up the morals of his communi
ty. The war has done what all wars
do. And the leeches on society are al
ways active at such times. Just now
we are facing all sorts of loose iiv
iiag arid the public at large apparently
feels little concern. Any man or wom
an can at least help by setting a good
abuse and a nuisance. The kings and
feudal nobility of the Middle Ages
practically levied on their dependents
for gifts. The presenjts varied accord
ing to sex and rank.
In the country towns of Russia New
Year's is the great feast day for the
children. Boy's fill their pockets with
dried peas and wheat and go in bands
from house to house. People they
A good American cun help Just now
by putting his respect for the law
strongly in evidence. For the law is
the law. If it is a poor law, it should
be changed. But until it is changed,
it should be obeyed whether it re
lates to the shooting of game birds or
to the use of liquor or to the speed
of automobiles or to murder or to
anarchy. Many people who would
hotly resent the charge that they are
anarchists take delight in evading the
laws and in making sport of the laws.
Every thinking man must realize
that this Twentieth century civillza
ation is too complex to be sane, safe
and sober. Medical philosophers are
unanimous in declaring that we Amer
icans live too hard and too fast ; that
our rapid ways are harmful both to
stlie individual and to the race ; that
we should slow up. We are, to use the
homely old phrase, burning the candle
at both ends. Men try to succeed in
business, to rule in politics, to be so
cial leaders all at the same time.
To crowd dissimilar things together
lias become a national characteristic.
Our avocations are often as wearing
as our vocations ; we play even harder
than we work. Thus to crowd wo
or more lives into one is to borrow
of nature. She is a hard creditor and
she always exacts payment.
One cannot, of course, indict a whole
people. There are still millions of
sane, safe and sober people in Ameri
ca. But a society that demands or
even countenances such recklessness
Is In need of reformation. It would
be interesting and startling to know
how many men and women put them
selves in an early grave by going the
pace that kills. ,
"Of all sounds of all bells, most
solemn and touching is the peal which
rings out the old year. I never hear it
without a gathering up of my mind to
a concentration of all the images that
have been diffused over the past
twelve-month ; all I have done or suf
fered, performed or neglected, in that
regretted time. I begin to know its
worth as when a person dies. It takes
a personal color ; nor was It a poetical
flight in a contemporary poet when he
exclaimed : i saw the skirts of the
departing year.'
"Every first of January that we ar
rive at, is an imaginary milestone on
the turnpike track of human life; at
once a resting place for thought and
meditation, and a starting place for
fresh exertion in the performance of
our journey. The man who does not
at least propose to himself to be bet
ter this year than he was last, must
be either very good or very bad Indeed.
And only to propose to be better Is
something ; if nothing else, it is an
acknowledgment of our need to be so,
which is the first step towards amend
ment. But; in fact, to propose to one
self to do well is in some sort to do
well, positively ; for there is no such
thing as a stationary point in human
endeavors ; he who is not worse today
than he was yesterday, is better ; and
he who is not better, is worse."
So wrote Charles Lamb. Therefore
let us make New Year resolutions
"duly to prize and diligently to im
prove time for the blessed end it was
given for" even if we break them.

Don't Idly dream! Great deeds await
your doing,
Deeds that will live, and you In them
may live.
Noble your thoughts, each day your
strength renewing.
Be you but true, that strength your
faith shall give.
Life striving round you bids you, then
awaken ;
Look where the future grandly
stands in view;
In God press onward! Be your trust
ne'er shaken,
Don't idly dream, but do!
