Vital Things of Life
Life is large. We cannot possibly
grasp the whole of it in the few
years we have to live. So let us ser seriously
iously seriously ask ourselves the question,
what is essential? That is, what may
be profitably let go." Is it hard to
know by what standard to measure,
or by what authority to decide? To us
it is a deep and a positive truth that
we should not cumber our lives with
the things, which at best we may
only grasp for a little time, when it
is possible to lay hold of the large
and wonderful things that we may
carry with us through eternity. What
ever we really are, that let us be in
all fearlessness, what ever we are
not, that let us cease striving to be.
We can never work well while there
is friction in our lives, nor gain in
our work that "beauty which is born
of power, and the sympathy which is
born of love," as which Ruskin speaks.
If we go through life uneffectively
the fault is neither ; with our endow endowment
ment endowment nor our environment, but with
ourselves, who have not made our
lives competent for life.
Caryle says, "The situation that
has not its duty, its ideal, was never
yet occupied by man, for here in this
hampered actual, here or no where is
thy ideal: work it out therefrom; and
working, be free. The ideal is thy
self, the impediment too is thy. self:
thy condition is but the stuff thou
art, to shape that ideal out of; what
matters whether such stuff be of this
sort or that, so the form thou give it
be heroic, or poetic."
So to my own sex I would say, now
is our time to prove ourselves, let us
lay hold of work with a firm grasp,
for the life of strenuous, unremitting
work is the happy life, especially if
our lives are to be given in service to

things else Lowell is patriotic. When

was observed at the Methodist church
yesterday morning in a most inter interesting
esting interesting manner. The church was well
filled with interested spectators and
promptly at 10:30 the exercises be began

Christian Soldiers," the primary
classes marching meanwhile to the
front and in perfect time and order,
taking their places and giving the
pledge of allegiance, followed by the
song, "America." This was followed
by a prayer song very beautifully
rendered, and by the invocation by by-Rev.

A beautiful feature was the reading
of the "Children's Day Ode," by Miss
Nan Brooks, with musical accompani accompaniment

The "Children's Hosanna," given

Mrs. George Martin, was very lovely.
Mr. L. W. Duval gave a short but
fervent address, explaining the mean meaning

was arranged for a distinct purpose.
He spoke of the advantage of putting
before the youth of our country a
good purpose of laying' a firm foun foundation
dation foundation for complete manhood and
womanhood before evil habits had
been formed. Sunday schools in
modern times may reach all ages and
are taken advantage of by adults, but
primarily they are to teach the child,
if the child is to succeed, and the next
generation be saved for the church.
He urged especially greater interest
among parents; while the Sunday
school was doing all it could for the
community, it needed the co-operation
of every man, woman and child in the
church. His address was well worth
hearing, and was followed by several
beiutiful little recitations, the wel welcome

the little folks all did well.
