Garden of Our Soul
lly BFATHICK FAIRFAX.
If you owned a garden plot of rich,
futile soil would you trust to chance
winds to boar seed to it? Or would you
deliberately tow It with tangling weeds,
or even dull and unfragrant flowers?
Never!" you cry, and again "Never!"
Hut you do own a garden plot of the
richest and most fertile soil Imaginable
a garden plot teeming with sustenance
for lovely flowers and wonderful foliage,
gracious in shadow and dappled with
sunlight. In your possession Is the finest
gardens for planting well chosen Seeds.
That garden Is your own soul.

Exactly In the way a wise gardener
cultivate his plot freeing It from weeds
and training to growth the flowers and
fruits he. loves, you may tend the garden
of your mind and soul. Whether you
cultivate or neglect your nature It still
must produce something. Why not direct
the procesa-and Intelligently direct It
The very first thing to do Is to go
a-wecdlng. Root up useless unkind, eu
ivious, discontented, Impure and selfish
thoughts. They choke the ground in
which you might be cultivation wonder

the flowers that try to grow up to sunshine-end

weeds must come. They can't grow if

If you let clrcunwtances suggest trains I

Into useful channels, your lire must, do a

livery seed of thought you allow to fall

to tell you that His fine thoughts ran

Good thoughts bear good fruit. Tha

The proof of this lies in your own na,

taken so much medicine and my doctor
said he could do me no good so I told my

would try it. By the time I had taken
