SUCCESS IN LIFE.
Success is the goal of every un
dertaking. No individual or
company of men desire anything
more, and none are satisfied with
anything less. Success may be
defined as the favorable or pros
perous termination of an enter
prise or undertaking, and con
sists in the proper and harmon
ious developemcnt of the faculties
which Clod has given us. Es
sence.juLmanly icharaajer, truth
fulness, integrity, goodness and
strength of purpose are the essen
tial elements of success. This
essence of manly character,
strengthened by a liberal educa
tion, is to a young man a power
to do good, to resist evil, to over
come difficulties and to bear up
under adversity. He who pos
sesses this requisite is armed
with a weapon, which, if vigor
ously used, gives him most ex
cellent chances of coming out vic
torious in life's battles. The
young man desirous of being suc
cessful in life should examine
himself carefully and ascertain
correctly what sphere in life he is
naturally destii.e 1 and especially
adapted to fill. We are all as
signed some special duty to per
form in life's great field of action,
and each will thrive Lest in his
own proper sphere. The young
man who possesses the natural
characteristics of an agricultural
ist, or the constructive genious of
a mechanic, should never attempt
to make a merchant or minister
out of himself. Having selected
an honerable profession or trade,
one congenial to your tastes and
for which you are by nature
adapted, work diliigently and
faithfully on. Master all the de
tails of that business by giving it
your constant and undivided at
tention. 15e constantly suggest
ing and making improvements.
Do not wait for opportunities, but
cause them to occur. Improve
wisely the small opportunities,
for great opportunities are gener
ally the result of wise improve
ment of the smaller ones, and
come to us in proportion to the
care we take to improve them.
Don't sit idly waiting for some
thing to "turn up" to put you on
the road to prosperity and inde
pendence, but put your shoulder
to the wheel, work with loth
hands; for prosperity and inde
pendence do not usually come to
us unless we cause them to come.
Confront dilliculties with an in
creasing perseverance. Meet
boldly and vanquish all opposi
tions that may rise in your path.
Oppositions only increase the
power of resistance. If there
were no diflieuities to overcome
there would be no victories won.
Industry, indefatigable attention
to business, force of will and fix
edness of purpose, arc the crown
ing elements of success. Nothing
is really impossible to him who
wills. In your chosen associa
tions of life show yourself to le
energetic, industrious, viligent.
brave and self-reliant. Engage
in one kind of business only; be
economiclc; live within your
means; improve upon spare mo
ments; read good books and pa
pers, be civil, courteous, kind and
friendly; be therefore grateful
charitable; cultivate nobleness of
soul; love truth anil virtue for
their own sake as well as for
vour own good, and "commit thy'
"work unto the Lord and he shall
bring it to pass." Ex.
