COLD ROAST BEEF
FREQUENTLY, when the days seem
darkest and troubles roll in upon
you like the storming waves of the sea,
trying their best to overwhelm you,
sunny-faced Hope is hovering near,
ready to rescue you at your bidding.
Thousands of wehry souls on the
very threshold of discouragement,
about to yield to the crushing weight
of their burdens, have at the last mo
ment resolutely resolved to stand up
and make a new tight.
This resolution, in perhaps the most
trying hour of their lives, marked the
turning-point In their careers.
They found a new courage which
carried them on and on, carrying them
safely through their hardest battles,
where they fought inch by inch until
the shout of victory stirred their
hearts, warmed their blood and cleared
From doubting Thomases they be
came sanguine Pauls, tilled with the
spirit of faith.
They saw new visions and dreamed
They had strength of their own In
stead of that borrowed from others,
which through adversity they soon
learned how to use to advantage.
Such are the men ami women who
today are making a better world for
There is nothing too hlg for them
to undertake, no loud too heavy for
them to carry, no troublesome hills
over which they cannot blaze an eaay
path for the less confident to follow.
Leaders In their chosen fields of la
bor, they take part in the boldest and
noblest adventures, never growing
weary of well-doing, never faltering by
the wayside, never declining to lend
a helping hand to the earnest, strug
gling In their first effort.
They think, plan, organize, achieve
and create, while those without hope,
hesitate, draw back, afraid to step up
In the clearer, Invigorating air and
wage the battle with alert hrains, hard
sinewed arms and hearts unafraid.
They turn stubborn dllhVulties Into
willing servants, surmount Impending
obstacles, write their names on the
eternal skies, and call lustily to the
new generations to gird their armor,
accept Hope as their captain until the
end of their days.
