Pleasure is an ovanesoent some
thing which, when roeliiod, becomes
nothing, Full of promise in atioipa-
tion, its realization turns the cxpootod
gold into dross. The supposed beau
tiful pioturo on nearer approach is
soon to bo a daub; the apparent beau
ttful gloB ia on I j mould; tho froth of
tho cup covers only tho bitter dregs
that lio boncalh and the awoet portion
becomes norid era it paasos the lips.
Suoh ia pleasure, yot we aeek it, pur
no it, trusting thai it will (tire joy,
happiness, contentment, tut alas, even
in its maddest whirls there is a sting
f regret, remorse, diieoatant, ono
moment of doubtful, fleeting joj
bringing with it years ef repentance
and sorrow. In looking kaokward wo
find that tho things which seemed to
havo tho lokSt oharm are the only
events whioh have mado aay impres
sion upon us, and we do not rotate our
pleasures but our labors, because they
are tho realities.
Have you not seen a child work by
tho hour to got to somo desired suany
spot and just as ho raaekss out to
grasp the sunbeam, a cloud flit by and
dostroy tho coveted goal? Thus it is
in life; thus it is in pleasure. Have
we not striven for years to obtain the
pleasures of a oortin hour and then
when it is almost attained, it is snatch-
od away by some unseen power and all
our labor has been in vain.
Mahomet says, "Paradise is under
tho shadow of swords." Whether this
be truo or not, wo know that every
thing worth attaining is surrounded
by dangers and difficulties. Often
things whioh should bo a pleasure to us
are not, because wo aro wishing for
something that we cannot obtain
whioh probably when gotten would
brine with it grief and sorrow, al
though at present it resombles the
most excellent things, whioh all havo
a rainbow character.
Nothing is moro hurtful to a youth
than to havo his soul soddon with
pleasure. Tho best qualities of his
mind aro thus wasted, his appotite for
tho highest kinds of plcasuro is des
troyed, common enjoyments bcoomo
tasteless, and when he comes to take
up the work and duties of life, the ro
suit is often only aversion and disgust.
As a ohild turns from broken toys, so
a youth turns from his withered pleas
ures and ho will find that his very ea-
pacity for enjoyment has been des
troyed. A most pitiable sight is a
man who has throes away his youth
in folly. It is among sueh persons,
whose youth has been sullied by pre
mature enjoyment, that we f nd the
prevalenoo of skepticism, sneering and
egotism, which proves a soured nature.
Tho happy goal of a well spent life
ia reaohed only through dangers and
difficulties which have oast their
shadow over the whole journey.
In life's morning we bogin the pleas
ant excursion througtb fields refulgent
with tho dews and fragrance of spring
time's bcautious flowers. We pass on
along tho pleasant banks, keeping stop
to tho rippling musio of timo, where,
near its source, it warbles as a littlo
stream among the pebbles of its bed,
As wo proocod, two ways appear, one
called pleasure, tho other, duty, the
former appoars pleasant nnd bright,
tho latter, dull and nnd prosaic; in
each, sha dowy forms appear beckon
ing us to enter; our inclination tend
toward tho first, our better self urges
that wo tnko tho second. In our
youthful inexperience wo do not know
that tlio flower bordered way of tho
former lends to tho desert of disan.
poiulmcut, despair and woe; wo do
not know that tho honoy dow on its
flowers changes to tho bitterness of
gall; that tho swcot songs of its birds
ore long will becomo tho croak of tho
vulturo, rcmorso gnawing at tbo void
of our withered hopes and heart.
Tho other path appears moro difficult;
it is loss attractive; tho flowors that
bloom by its sido have moro quiet
oolors; tho songs of its birds are less
thrilling; tho dew that sparkles on
tho follago does not gliston'with suoh
brilliancy nor has such sweetness of

fado. Amongst its flowors lurks no
deadly serpent to sting tho hapless
wayfarer; tho read may bo at times
rough but every step that is taken on
largca tho vision, every obstacle that
is overcomo gives its own quiet joy,
every success that is nttninad carries
with it its own reward, none of its
promisos aro left unfulfilled, its gold
never becomes dross, and af tor tho
sun oi its day has sunk to rest, the
wayfarer uuy lie down muidst tho vio
lets that cover its sidoi and sleep tho
drcamlHss sleep of health and peace,
n r"ru"ro or rankling fears disturb
his p..o. fitl slutnhtrs.
How different is tho lot of him wto
gives las lifo'c best efforts to the
gratification of bin sonsual passion;
what a narrow and dsapioablo thing
is that man and that life whose hori
zon bound; only the narrowness of
self nnd selfish joys. What bittcrnciB
is cevered by the deceptive froth of
his first faiat enjoyment.
"For pleasures aro like popplen spread,
You eiczo the (lower, its bloom la shed;
Or, like the snow-flake on the river,
A moment white then gone forever;
Or, like the borealia race,
That flit ere you can point their placo;
Or, like tho rainbow's lovely form,
Evanishing timid tho etorui."
Passing away, leaving a plaoo
marked enly by glosm. Sueh is tho
fate of him wke makes the vanities of
earth his solo aspiration, nething
lasting, aothing enduring, vanishing,
passing away in gloom and sorrow,
How different from ths fate of him
inspired by seme noblo an lofty ideal,
takes his stand among the true and
good, ever pressing toward tho accom
plishment of something high and
nobis. What a glorieus sunset boauty
has such a life I Its last gloam, as it
sinks bolew the rim of this world,
sending out glerious streamers of re
fulgent liht, beckoning, beckoning
and calling tho wanderer to that life
which lies boyond, to that world
whoso boautics fado not.
Wayfarer on life's journey, so livo
that whan thy time approaches to join
tho innumorablo caravan,
"Thou go not liko tho quarry elnve at
Scourged to hia duugoon, but sustain

By an unfaltoring trust, approach thy

"Tho sun unto the mountain an id
Come up li!nlier, come up higher."
We nro told in Holy Writ that in tho
beginning tho face ot the earth was cov
ered with water. Then the spirit of God
breathed forth. Slowly the land appear
ed and the mountains rose from their
pestulential vapors and mists, until final
ly they appeared above the fogs and
Btorm clouds, shining clear and resplen
dent in the beams of the glorious sun of
heaven, and, as the mountain struggled
upward into the clear sunshine, bo does
the human bouI ever strive toward the
light ot ite Almighty Creator.

thing higher, something nobler, purer,

To a certain extent, but by no means

at the present day, too much said on

so many in loading a brilliant caree r,
Tho drat is Milton. Whon advanced
lu years, blind and in misfortune, he en
tered upon tho composition ot nn opto
which waa to dotormino his futuro glory
and haxard the glory ot hie country in
competition with the classic ages of an
tiquity. Tho counterpart of this picture
is Sir Walter Scott. With hia private
affairs in ruin, he undortook, by intel
lectual labor, to liquidate a dobtof 120,
000. Glory puro and unsullied was
Milton'a aim. Honor nnd integrity were
Scott's incentives. In six years Milton
had realtaocl tho object of his hopoa in
the completion ot "Paradlso Lost." Hia
work was accomplished, hia triumph
complote; he hold in his hand his pass
port to immortality.
In six yenra Scott had almost reached
tho goul ot his nbltionn; he had roamed
tho wido Held of romance nnd tho public
had liberally rowurdod him. It soomed
as it tho maxim, "Kortuno holps those
who holp themselves," wnB bolng clearly
exemplified, As tho world saw his suc
cess they choorod him on but his exer
tion was too much, ho had spont his life
in tho Btrugglo and ho sank exhausted
inhisoourso. Tho iron will was sub
dued, and honor nnd integrity bowed
their hoada in submission, to torminato
in doath.
"Peralttont effort ia tho prico ot lion
orablo distinction." No man ought to
be convinced by anything short ot as
siduous and long continued labors issu
ing in absolute failure, that ho Is not
meant to do much for the glory of God
and the honor of mankind. Lot ua
throw aside tho doctrine that "Man ia
the creature of circumstances" and
adopt the higher and grander one, "Man
ia the architect of hia own fortune" In.
atead ot complaining of our taw talents
and unfavorable circumstances, let ua
make the moat ot what we do poeeeaa
and alwaya etrive to rise to the highest
types ot manhood and womanhood.
Fear not obstacles. What aro your

all. Many well known to fame have con
