Keep Youth's Purity.
"Keep thyself pure." 1st Tim.
Peter has a story of one who act
ed as the amenuensis of Marcus
Aurelius Marius the Eplcurian.
The story opens with Marius as
a boy leaving home for school.
His mother wanted to say some
thing to him as a last word of coun
sel." She took him into her room
and as they looked across, the Cam
pagna, she put her hand upon his
shoulder and said: "Marius, a white
bird which you are to carry with
unsullied wings across a crowded
public place; your soul is like that"
That was all she said, but that was
enough. It was the best thing she
could have sadi.
"A white bird with unsullied
wings." That young man, young
woman, is what your soul is like in
the innocency of your youth. God
help you to keep it like that. God
help you to carry your soul across
the crowded places of the world
with unsullied wings.
How thankful young folk, you
will be when comes that wedding
day cherished in anticipation by
every normal person, if you have
kept your soul clean and unsullied,
How thankful you will be when you
come to the sterner duties of life
and will need so greatly the
strength of body and mind and the
courage of heart possible only to
those who live pure and clean lives!
Therefore, young man, young wo
wan, KEEP THYSELF PURE!
Allow no libertine to beguile you.
Nail it as a foul lie that "a young
man must sow his wild oats." Keep
away from danger's border line.
Never let your imagination play
with evil thoughts. Keep the pur
ity and innocency of your youth.
Be a clean man. Be a clean woman.
Your reward will be priceless.
If you have not" a Church home
we invite you to come and worship
with us. You will enjoy our Bible
School, where there is a class for
YOU; and you will be helped in our
services of worship. In these days
of stress and uncertainty, you will

note of our services. For the comT

nal Word." Evening worship, "Not
by Bread Alone."

The special services will continue
