A STUDY OF LIFE.
J. O. Shroyer.
The individual is not broken
down in health and ruined, body and
mind, by the intellectual work that
lie performs, the most intense though
and study, the severest application
of the intellectual faculties of which
the human mind is capable, are not
detrimental to brain or body.
But the deep and terrible anxieties
that like a cloud so often hover
over our lives, the disappointments
that we so often suffer on account
of our unreasonable expectations,
the hopes that are born in our abnor
mal desires, yes the unnecessary
fears, the shattered loves, the dis
cordant hates of our natures, so per
meated as they are, these are the
tilings that weaken and debilitate
us body and mind and leave us strand
ed by iln> way, a broken and dismant
Many a soul is made miserable by
the difficuties that it never meets.
Imaginary troubles become as seri
onr as real ones.
We are perplexed and worried by
the mysteries of life and forget that
they become commonplace when we
once become familiar with them.
There are thousands of people who
seem to have no personal stability,
they have no convictions of their i
own, they surrender that peculiar
and God given right of individuality,
to some image of clay. They be-1
come only immitating models , a '
similitude, a mere effigy, a spurious
character, an imitation of an imper-1
feet ideal. Under the weak moral
conscience they possess, they are
more apt to ignore the noble traits
and select the most glaring and incon
Live up to your convictions, cul
tivate a high grade conscience and
use the vital energy of life to carve
into acts and deeds, the noblest im
pressions of an immortal soul.
The opportunities of life are too
limited, Its obligations far too stu
pendously momentous to allow the
follies and foibles of the hour to
sway our thought and action.
I stood beside a rushing river
And watched its' wild waves onward
And thought how like some rest
Throbbing within the human soul.
We cast aside the richest treasure
And for some worthless bauble sigh.
O can you fathom life’s strange
Someway, sometime and tell me why?
Mark out a line of action, estab
lish the right of way for your opin
ions and purposes, proceed with the
problems of life. Permit no waver
ing from the right as you are per
mitted to see it. Then your mis
takes will not be laid at the door of
other men and successful achieve
ment will be credited to yourself
alone. Thus you become a being
of Individuality, not subservient to
the ideas of your fellows. A being
of action, your body under the con
trol of a superior mind.
Pot us understand that wee are at
the head of an empire, we have the
scepter, will, that if trained to per
form its' duty, controls the mind,
controls tlie body and sublimely it
moulds an immortal spirit.
No emperor who governs a material
empire, lias a problem more intri
cate and of superior merit, than he
who thoroughly understands the
wonderful import of rightful living
a noble life.
In emulating the lives of the great
men of the world, remember that
the most desirable model that you
can obtain is not an ideal one, but
is deformed by some imperfection.
Imitate only the perfections and
remember that lie is wisest who is
most able to discriminate between
the most delicate shadings of right
The world is looking for men of
force, men of action, men of power,
the weakling Is soon cast aside.
Cultivate the mental capabilities un
til you have a reserve supply that
far exceeds the demand. In the
roundhouse of certain roads, a no
tice is posted that reads “No en
gine shall be allowed to go out with
less than 120 pounds of steam.’’
Would that every young man and

woman should place before them
selves the motto—“Carry a full head
of power, let your will force reach
the 120 pound mark.”
Let every school adopt it .as a
watchword, let every associa
tion spread it upon their records,
that none shall be allotved to be
come a member who has not the re
quisite amount of force of character.
Think of a ton of wasted energy
that it takes to drag along in the
groat train of human events, the
beings that lack steam, they arc like
dead engines, the steam is gone be
cause the fires are too low, the
flues are sooty, the valves are leaky.
Who has not seen families where
the father and children are void of
force ami the brunt of toil and plan
ning falls upon the wife and mother.
She lias ambition, and ,-veks i.o
keep pace with the world, but the
load is too heavy and she sinks into
an early decay. In other homes the
father strives to keep up the unequal
struggle, but the enormous lead is
too much for him and on some up
grade he is forced to abandon the*
contest, or if he does reach the sua»
mit of his desires, is so broken down «
in physical health and so mentally "
depressed by over exertion, that lit” v >.
has lost its' enjoyment and he is
an old man when in the natural couri
of human life he should be in his
prime. He has had to haul aload
of dead engines.
