BOMB ELEMENTS OF MANHOOD—TRUTHFULNESS AND OBEDI ENCE. 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 talrot today in flower and fruit, in air and wator thth aa much beauty and vigor at thoy did la tho begin ning. And boildoa this, all tho uoo fal and beautiful things of the fit taro matt bo formed oat of that, aamc element*. Now tom. of them aro very modeet and homely, bat they appear gloriooa when they aro mado into a root or tho light or tho human body. Likewise there ere certain sle ■M«ta that go to the amkiog of a man. Tbeee are not aeer but are at old ii human life, yet they are aa val ; "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 manhood. 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 with anybody. What ia In him will eo«u show itself in leak and wok} and manner. You strike him and be rings hollow. 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. DO sot think that 70s eaa enter “7 large told at ondosoor or of happiness unless 70a on willing to oboy too tow* that govern in that raatoa. Maa am eeaetaatly trying to ooado this- Ons will took to bo rfak without obeying tho tow of bnr> mty. Asothor wd try to boooaM tosmod and pot refuse to hoop tho tow at patent drill sad hard study. Another thinks tost ha ess make asd hold friends without okaying the tow ad kiadnaaa. Mad Pant urged the rMldreu to obey their pamats, aad toe ouly ns ma ho gam was that h waa tight. He kaow they woaM laata the **why~ Of Um matter later on. Pant said that ha waa himself the equal at sth •r men at kia time It waa not for «* ta pay allegiance to them. Bat when Iww stood before hia ia all the gtaadeur of hia matchless Ufa, ha ■•id, -I hew nay kmee to HlauT it k • *r*ot thing to bo able to recognise the supreme authority when it ap panra. It ia atiH nobler far the soul te yield tha utmost obedience to tha ttinge that claim Ha loyalty. Tha by respect to the eternal laws with* «»d by obeying the highest lawn of your oem inner Ufa, we come after a while to that anriabte estate at naif ■natery. or seif-control. COLORED CIVIC LfAGCK.
