A a How slowly and monotonously time seems to when we pause to review the Days childhood How Short the time seems since we were Mere boys and girls. One cause this May be the plasticity memory in childhood which holds impressions Joy sorrow made then with much greater distinctness than the have completed the annual report the Newport j a ame impressions made since we have become. Adults. How Well i remember every Nook and Corner every Hickory nut tree every Blackberry Patch and every interesting spot within a radius three four Miles Birthplace. I can see distinctly Quot in minds Eye a almost every curve in the roads thereabout. The impressions a certain strap have Long since vanished from the body but they still stand out prominently in the mind. Of the Joys and sorrows youth. They were As varied As those the average youth perhaps but i confess looking Back i see the Joys far plainer than the sorrows. It seems to i would be willing to Tnge Ray present state for the pleasures childhood again. Though i am comfortable have excellent health and am enjoying life As Well better than the average human being i can to help feeling that Halcyon Days Are gone forever. I believe this is largely imaginative yet it seems no less real. This May account for the fact that Many the foreigners always think the a Eva Terlando is the Best land Earth. I am reminded a caricature which i saw not Long since. It was that an old Southern gentleman and his grandson. They were the Beach about the time Moonrise. A How Beautiful the Moon shines a exclaimed the Little boy. A a a but it does not Shiue As it did before the War a answered the old Man. The inference is Plain. As we can not recall the Days childhood and it is Weil we can to for life has More serious tasks than to be passed in play How careful we should be to make Good use the. Time that is so that when we come to look Back there May be Many pleasant thoughts and few regrets. How kind our forgetful memories Are True they let Many a pleasant scene pass out mind but likewise Many a scene sorrow is allowed to pass into oblivion. I can to forbear speaking the responsibility those who have the care children entrusted to them. How they will remind us the past As they grow up. Should we not be careful to furnish theut All the Joy and pleasure consistent with their Well being they will always have a fond remembrance for their parents and for their birthplaces. Of Reader As you read this let your mind wander Back to a by gone Days and recall the pleasures and even sorrows your youth. It will be soothing As Weil As pleasing to the mind. J. G. Pc.
