There is a call ge being built in Donver

mouths ago the committee offered me a
responsible situation upon the staff, and
I have decided now to accept it, for
Charles' marriage removes the last tie
which binds me to England, You will
write to me sometimes, my friends, and
you will address your letters to Professor
weatmacott Emancipation college, Den
ver. From there I shall wntoh how the
glorious struggle goes in conservative old
England, and if I am needed you will
find me here again fighting in the fore
front uf the fray. Goodby but not you,
girls, I have still a word I wish to say to

What the Growtnf Generation Wants.
There is one groat fault with the grow,
ing generation. The young men waut
to get rich too fast With wealth going
to waste all around them they cannot
find it in their souls to be patient. They
are not content to plod along as their
fathers did before them and slowly lay
up a fortune, They mnst have it now,
today, tills instant. . When thoy go luto
an enterprise, they want capital and lots
of it They want to begin on a big scale
and electrify the world.
It is not the ugtf of saving, bnt of
spending. Speculation is tho craxe of
the hour. Every man wants to make
more than he ohn earn by the aweat of
his brow, He must double his money In
a night end quadruple it the next day.
It is an altogether artificial existence.
Contentment is not sought nowadays.
