poisons our natures
this giddy emine"DC
proves only a point from u.- : ,
view the shipwreck of bumanityTwitn
a heart sojiard that not even a sigh for
its relief escapes our lips.; Thus we are
made to realize the truth that "all is.Bot
gold that glitters," and that, too often,
the only objects which We think life
worth living for axe mere shadows,
enemies or demons in disguise. By
such experience some learn lessons of
great worth to them in after life. They
learn to investigate all thing's, before
they give their opinion either for or
against them. Thus they become think
ing men ; pillars of support to' society
and the State ; monuments of true moral
greatness, while otheis press the delu
sions to their bosoms, and court their
own misery and destruction. Bat how
may we evade these delusions, and de
tect the false gold that glitters in the
sunbeams of wanted prosperity : Our
first step is to doubt ; this is the only
condition of philosophy. We are only
able to investigate any proposition on
the condition that we doubt its truthful
ness, for the very act of investigating
proves that we are, to Borne extent,
skeptical on that subject I do not
mean that skepticism which doubts in
the face of asolute proof, but that skep
ticism which requires proof before be
lief. Then he vrho would reap the pure
gold of hife, let him doubt philosophi
cally, and investigate with patience.
Youth, with its happiness, is a pre
cious fund of inheritance with which to
begin trading in a practical wisdom and
an active usefulness. It is the time
when we learn by experience that hap
piness is actually attainable on earth,
and this fact alone supports man in his
moral life in succeeding years. If once
taught that happiness is a chimera, and
that momentary gratifications are the
only substitutes placed within his reach,
man id prone to lead a wild, reckless life,
as experience abundantly proves. Our
happiness is much oftener thrown away,
in consequence of our actions, than
snatched from us by a superior power.
Youth is the time when we are taught
by experience to discard these destruct
ive fallacies from our rules of action,
and we are prepared for life's great bat
tles. Happy, blessed youth ! "Who
does not love the bright eyes, the
happy faces, the winning ways, and the
rosy dreams of youth 1 Nothing seems
to weigh down the boyant "spirits then ;
and if misfortune chances to fall to its
lot, the shadows thus" cast over its life
path are as fleeting aB the clouds that
come and go in an April sky. The
warm, generous impulses . of nature
have not yet been cramped and bound
by the Cold formalities of the . world,
and the heart has not learned to veil its
false purposes with deceitful smiles, or
the tongue its basest desires beneath
honeyed words. It has cost the world
ages of experience to learn an apprecia
tion of the position and character of
women, but it has not yet attained to a
knowledge of the true position, require'
ments and character of youth. Here
we have an age of study spread out be
fore us. Here we find an eloquent
teacher. Its generous ardor, its daunt
less activity, its chivalrous sense of
honor, its fond attachments, its hopeful
nessand truthfulness, its clear bright
eye, fair cheek, light and joyous frame'
how strangely unlike is all this to the
wrinkled brow and heavy tread, the
callous and deliberate sel fishness by
which it 13 often' succeeded f VV oat a
fund of knowledge in the study of youth-
