Memory From earliest times men have needed aids to memory the Rev Mr Tandy said And those who have had particular reason why cer tain things might not be forgot have caused aids to be brot to bear that people might not forget For instance when the Almighty wanted his people to keep forever in mind that He had delivered them from the hand of the Egyptians He maide for them the feast of the Passover and when He wanted Ihem to remember their crossing the Red Sea He caused them to pile up a mass of ntones to call to their mind what had there taken place When the leaders of the Jews wanted the peo ple to remember the work of Esther they instituted a feast All over the work here are monuments erected to call the at tention to certain facts and peoples whose memory must be kept green These are necessary if minds are o do for us what is best for us and th world It is the fact that we can recall events and persons tha make man wiser than a beast ana enables him to profit by what othcra have learned By memory of om sort or another he makes himsel the beneficiary of nil the past In a biggest sense than we will evar know we inherit all that has been done in the world We are the
