A young man attending Yale
undertook to do two years' work in
the lav department in one year.
He also supported himself and was
manager ofva co-operative society.
It was too much and it killed him.
Overwork pure and simple carried
him off. His mistake was in imao;-
ining that life was too short. There
is plenty of time for the young
man. He need not hurry. He has,
or can take, ten to fifteen years to
finish Jiis ejiijVm, and instead of
losing time he will haA-e gained it.
The young fellow who thinks that
his twenty-first birthday is a magic
dividing line in life, on the beyond
side of which he must be.'rin sud
denly to distinguish himself or pile
up money, makes a grievous and
.burdensome mistake for which he
is sure sooner or later to attone.
There is no need to hurry. Life is
long enough, and attempts to stretch
it out usually result in snapping its
thread short. Journal Topics.
