Other people's ideals are help
ful to them, but if you want to be
helped you must set up your own
- ideals. '
The only true way to make sure
of the future life is to make the
best of this life, and that is done
by doing all the food possible.
j. It is a mistake to seek to do only
the easy things of life. No de
velopment of character can come
that way. It is as hard tilings are
attempted and overcome that more
strength, fortitude and widened
experience are attained.
Someone has recently said thai
''fullness of mental power is nol
reached until one has reached the
age of twett.v-five. It is expected
that all the coming high school
and college graduates throughout
the country will protest that re
flection upon them.
There are a few people that as
sert most loudly that the biblQ i*
an outgrown bcok and that its
moral teaching is very imperfect.
All the same, people generally will
.do well to fashion their lives after
the teaching of the Ten Command
ments and the Sermon on thr
February is a conspicuous month
hi American life, for it marks tlx
birthdays of two of tbe greatest
men thie country has ever pro

But to tbe lovesick swain who
wants to send his best girl the

to contrqf the hearts and destinies
of young people, far outweigh in

resourcefulness are expressed in
the valentines that on February

members his own youthful days
and retain in his heart a tender
feeling for sentimental young men
What touching emblems and
poetry appear on the valentine es
pecially on those wonderful crea
tions of art the buying of which
make a deep hole in the young
man's pocket. Blood red hearts,
saucey-faced cupids, dressed in
nature's garb in freezing weathei
and armed with bow and arrow to
pierce the susceptible, hearts,
hands joined iu loving grasp,
which no divorce court can ever
unloose, amorous verse full of
tender adjectives and nouns and
exclamations, young couples walk
ing hand Mod hand together along
a narrow winding path to a pictur
esque little church perched on a
. hill top?these are among the won
derful designs that the fertile miud
of sympathizing man has created!
And after all, why not? This
old world would be cold and
gloomy without sentiment and
romance, and what better time in
life is there for it but that of
youth, "when man's fancy lightly
turns to tboiights of love." There
fore let the valentine have the
' right of way and long may Saint
