Br Harry M. Nartk.
BOMB ELEMENTS OF MANHOOD—TRUTHFULNESS AND OBEDI
Thor* are only a ft* elements in
tha natural world, and all tho many
other tillage that wo oaa art mado
ap of combinations of two or mort
of thooa original oleomata. Thoy do
not grow old, bat manifoot thorn

Likewise there ere certain sle
■M«ta that go to the amkiog of a
man. Tbeee are not aeer but are at

; "We in thie time ai they were when
they appeared in the characters at
the first men who walked the earth.
The world wonder* when they come
oat In their perfection In rahie in
this time as they were now being
rwreelad for the first time, and I am
euro that no age will come when they
can be left out In the building of
1 notice truthfulness s» one of
tbooe essential characteristics. Can
any life be mado strong that has not
truth at the bottom of It? 1 have
had to deal with many cleeaea of peo
ple, and it seesot to me that the least
hopeful of them all is the men who
will lie. The false »m< is diseased
to the very core of his being. Nearly
any wrong even to the point of crime
is possible to him who will tail you
a deliberate untruth. On the other
hand be that speaks the truth in hie
heart has in him a certain tittitwItisss
upon which yoe may build the iofti
eat structure and know that k wfl]
stand. Such a man always keeps
fnkh with himself end with you, but
the man who lies wifi not keep faith

I» 1* Mid that tha belt wherewith
Cod glide him self is truth, and the
throne of "God la founded upon truth.
80 that which guards that Holy Ufa
and tha thing which upholds His
everlasting kingdom, is this mi
eternal element. There far nothings
more dear to Cod than the truth, and
1 suppose that wa are moat like Hhn
when we live and ipeak it.
Again the spirit of obedience must
be u large factor in the formation of
■haraeter. No lift can be symmetri
cal that has not ‘israsil to yield «iy
tfanee to all right authority. Some
■sen hare the idea that they wUl
loae the raepect of others and la
■oma way forfait their own self-rs
•puct if they obey anything. It to
trur that if they obey low things
Uwdr Ufa will hamms corresponding
ly base. Bat a man finds his true
salf nowhere so surely as he doM to
a loyal obedience to some great law
er truth .or peemm. Only to this way
can he be ennobled and —free.
Can you give me to a sentence, why
the old generation of negroes are
hotter than tha newt Tha answer
lies to this one thiag that they warn
toagfat to obey. It wan a hard school
to Which they learned, but to a very
raal sense aU of as mutt haar tha
yoka in sur youth er suffer for it
Parents with mistaken ideas at
kindness often fail to rsqaire their
children to obey. At n result the
cUM will be hampered all He life.
Re will not make an acceptable em
ployee beeaaae he haa never learned
to obey, and Ms mnpleyer will not
lent boar with him. Re will net ba
successful as a man at btuints* with
men order him. for no man la able to
control others until be himself haa
learned to obey. Soon he finds fit
he does not fit life at any point So
after awhile he must be krohan open
the great harsh unsympathetic world
beeaaae he finda nothing within him
that yields to ouUdde authority.
