guides the careless and uncertain steps of joyous childhood strewing around its pathway bright lowers of hope breathe softly tlieir lessons of gratitude and praise while the yonng wayfarer gathers them in his embrace Beautiful in its tation is the higher development of the mental sentiment which commands thc reverence of impetuous youth and sub- dues the mighty power of passion by thc holiness of its strong endurance leading him upwards through ties and temptations to the summit of mount of whence he may survey thc world with a clear vision and willingly brave thc stern realities of a severe discipline rather than yield himself a captive to the at- traction of selfish ambition But when in the full strength of mature the great heart bows itself before her who its best a tions and
