, i ;'Qns idea.
Jen of re-
y- - f
fie surrounding evils to overcome
jn i-hpii nrntpaiiiiTtia. and wrmitrpn
a. and steal away the pearl of their
higrposition, We also observe that it
is not fifways men . Of great talent that
reach these high positions. Why is it,
Uiavlibse of far less natural ability
BhoulAjtsHn these great works of the
wona f act 4 on account ot their absti
nence from those evils that are calculat
ed to impair their health and weaken
the great reasoning powers the rock
and foundation of wisdom. . To illus
trate, this more vividly to the mind, we
will take for this purpose the students
of some institution of learning. There
is a class of perhaps twenty students,
all of good natural sense, and able to
perform their respective tasks, but some
with much more ease than others. Thess
pupils work their way through college,
and go out to labor for themselves. It is
in the.power of these young men to fill
honorable positions in life ; but from
past events but few of them would do
so, as many of them make a bad use of
their education. Then, if we have the
good fortune to obtain useful educations,
let us not squander these talents en
trusted to our keeping, and end our days
as paupers and drunkards, being a dis
grace to our generation. Piso. -
