I. KIhk xls., 11.
There are times when we who hnve
Hved constantly In tho valleys become
dissatisfied with our surrounding,
with the commonplace scenery, the
narrow liorlron and contracted vision,
and look wlta euvlous eyes to the few
who have succeeded In climbing to the
mountain top. Then, under some cud-
den spell, we summon up courage,
gather our feeble, strength, and at
tempt to ell in h the steep and nigged
nsccnt. And when nt last, after iiiiiny
trials and failures, we reach the sum
mit we are. fully rewarded for our ex
ertions by tho glorious sight tefore us
and by the exhilaration of the upper
Those In the valley can see only a
small part of the world's wonders
here a field, a garden; there n cavern,
a river, or lake. Upon the mountain
top the sublime and awe Inspiring
prospect of tho world's wonderful de
sign, beauty, majesty, and iwwer
bursts full upon tho eye. From be
low we saw only a few peaks; from
ntwvc hundreds of peaks come Into
view, hundtyils of smaller mountains,
separated by undulations of green for
ests or by sliver threads of limpid wa
ters. From below we had a limited
outlook, saw only our own conllncd
surroundings a few peasants, villag
ers, or conceited townspeople; beheld
only petty affairs of mundane life,
which seemed of such paramount Im
portance to the denizens of the valley.
From the heights we have, compara
tively speaking, an almost unlimited
horizon and can see at a glance many
cities and villages, and In the distance
bills and vnlleys, rivers and lakes, and
beyond the mighty ocean embracing
all tilings. From above all great cities
seem but as toy villages, men and
women ns tiny miniatures, and our
seemingly vast enterprises as the block
houses of children at play. Standing
there on the mountain top. In the very
presence of the Lord, as It were, upon
tho throne of creation, we seem to
realize n sense of our greater selves
and our larger possibilities, and to
feel that the people and the things
we have left below ore but the chrysa
lis from which we have escaped; that
the world In the valley Is but the step
ping stone to the higher world above.
There are luminous hours In our
lives when the soul yearns to eman
cipate Itself from the limitations un
der which It was born nnd has con
tinued to exist, and seeks to rise to
some higher estate of manhood or
womanhood. We have at times vis
Ions of men and women who have
risen to spiritual heights which we
aspire to reach. They seem to live on
the mountain tops of life and enjoy u
greater and broader view of human
affairs. They are men of unusual wis
dom, profound reason, of uncompro
mising convictions; men who stand on
the vantage ground of truth, who lore
righteousness, execute Justice, and
walk humbly before their God; broad
gauge men, full of sympathy and love
for humanity; wliolesoulcd men and
women who can smile benignly and
speak graciously, yet wisely; philan
thropists, lovers of mankind, who tem
per Justice with mercy, Judgment with
charity, and who. like divinity, are pa
tient, long suffering, and abundant In
kindness and mercy.
In our better moments we seek to
stand upon such a lofty plane. Our
ordinary lives seem commonplace,
"stale, fiat, and unprofitable." We go
constantly through tho same routine
of eating and drinking, sleeping and
waking. Tho great massed seem like
thousands and millions and myriads of
molecules and organized cells that
contrlbuto to tbo mechanism of the
universe. We seem often to be only
ns the small teeth on tho cog wheels
of human and cosmic life, rotating
upon one another to move some other
set of wheels, and thus transmit pow
er, vitality, and growth to an infinite
number of revolving wheels. Now and
then some of us rebel against n cruel,
at least an undesirable, fate or destiny.
We aspire to some higher existence
than that of the beast; we want to be
something more than merely a part
of a cog wheel; we have an ambition
to bo n power that moves tho wheel,
to be a conscious and active directing
force, not a mere passive piece of
meclinnlsm. We wish to be not the
cluy that Is molded but tho potter who
designs and executes the plan. In
our better hours wo reach out to such
an Ideal life that Is far above our ma-

there Is n defect In the tllle of the
