I have seen.the young mother put- ting her first babe to the breast fo the very first time. No word to mt the sacred stillness. Maybe just the faintest whisper of angel-wings that I am sure fluttered near. Here was the cherub at the fountain--the dawn of creation--a picture worth the brush of a Murillo--of a Millet. And the sermon--a volume of eloquence-- the sacred--the sublime! I watched the woodmen, hacking at the base of a mighty oak. Cheerily they sang, aa chips leaped from thel pygmy blows. Silenty the forest giant stood, unconscious of the deep cning wound, now perilously near his heart---At last the crack of immediate dooma swaying body--a thunderous crash to earth. The proud crest, from Its heavenly altitude, now bent with soulless dust. A tower of liberty and freedom now supine--helpless---a the feet of its despoilers! Never to rise again, as truth crushed to earth may. Man, militant proponent of liberty and freedom, chief executioner o r both. Left to his own devices, man becomes a destroyer of all about him. transforming the natural into the ar- tificial, the sublime to the ridiculous. Left-to his own devices, mind you, last of all, he frames his own shack- les. binds himself to eternal servitude What a sermon for the seeing eye! lXot all sermons are pleasing, espe- cially those we see; but they are ser- mons, nevertheless, and, bristling with true testimony. To heed each faithful sermon is wise, whether seen or heard; it is our duty to see ana hear. EGOTISM For a man to have exalted ideas about himself is not very uncommon. To be boastful is indeed quite the us- ual thing for men men who have achieved ove. others. But when men get to thinking themselves infallible, and inwardly feel that they are su- perior to all other men Physically or intellectually or both, then it becomes "exaggerated ego," a distinct mental berration. It is perfectly honorable to believe in one's self: it is even commendable for a man to take pride in his own good character, standing, or pro : in legitimate undertakings. It is fectly natural to feel the good fortune; but a feeling of iority over all other men is ous to the menta,l equilirbrlum of possessor. It is not what we think of that brings real honor or f can never enjoy such fine assets, they are bestowed on us by wito think of us in mighty fine Therefore, see the point: would be praised by your you muat do something to feel like praising you; the most sincere effort of are capable--and you must do it Unless you do this ta full measure, and in the tieing spirit, you will be held in suspicion that you are a:ne for pay. It is a glorious to five so that everybody loves I have known several men over-rated themselves; built o#n palaces and lived in :;all;pad themselves there. Lad no access.

I have seen.the young mother put- ting her first babe to the breast fo the very first time. No word to mt the sacred stillness. Maybe just the faintest whisper of angel-wings that I am sure fluttered near. Here was the cherub at the fountain--the dawn of creation--a picture worth the brush of a Murillo--of a Millet. And the sermon--a volume of eloquence-- the sacred--the sublime! I watched the woodmen, hacking at the base of a mighty oak. Cheerily they sang, aa chips leaped from thel pygmy blows. Silenty the forest giant stood, unconscious of the deep cning wound, now perilously near his heart---At last the crack of immediate dooma swaying body--a thunderous crash to earth. The proud crest, from Its heavenly altitude, now bent with soulless dust. A tower of liberty and freedom now supine--helpless---a the feet of its despoilers! Never to rise again, as truth crushed to earth may. Man, militant proponent of liberty and freedom, chief executioner o r both. Left to his own devices, man becomes a destroyer of all about him. transforming the natural into the ar- tificial, the sublime to the ridiculous. Left-to his own devices, mind you, last of all, he frames his own shack- les. binds himself to eternal servitude What a sermon for the seeing eye! lXot all sermons are pleasing, espe- cially those we see; but they are ser- mons, nevertheless, and, bristling with true testimony. To heed each faithful sermon is wise, whether seen or heard; it is our duty to see ana hear. EGOTISM For a man to have exalted ideas about himself is not very uncommon. To be boastful is indeed quite the us- ual thing for men men who have achieved ove. others. But when men get to thinking themselves infallible, and inwardly feel that they are su- perior to all other men Physically or intellectually or both, then it becomes "exaggerated ego," a distinct mental berration. It is perfectly honorable to believe in one's self: it is even commendable for a man to take pride in his own good character, standing, or pro : in legitimate undertakings. It is fectly natural to feel the good fortune; but a feeling of iority over all other men is ous to the menta,l equilirbrlum of possessor. It is not what we think of that brings real honor or f can never enjoy such fine assets, they are bestowed on us by wito think of us in mighty fine Therefore, see the point: would be praised by your you muat do something to feel like praising you; the most sincere effort of are capable--and you must do it Unless you do this ta full measure, and in the tieing spirit, you will be held in suspicion that you are a:ne for pay. It is a glorious to five so that everybody loves I have known several men over-rated themselves; built o#n palaces and lived in :;all;pad themselves there. Lad no access.
