not on the quantity but on the quality of ones life All that an earnest soul can do Is to live each day of the new year by itself as It comes In Its turn trying If so it may booto put a mouths effort In one day and a days victory Into a single hour The time Is short and It remnlntth that all who know Christ and partake ot his gift of new life should be diligent al ways watch unto prayer and boast

another January arrives It is distinctively the time to slough off the old and to put on the new There Is an old nature to be discarded and a new spiritual manhood to be assumed The trouble with many people bow ever Is that they try to remake and to reform themselves forgetting that a few good resolutions more or less loosely kept can at best only touch the outsldo and possess no Interior aSSlendy in tho recesi of the spirit The now man who Is really worthy of the name is the now man in Christ Joans Whero Jeaus Is there Is always newness of experience renovation of the moral nature freshness of hope Dud a resiliency of elastic Joy It Is not necessary to wait until the first of January in any approaching year to Win the wisdom of such a heavenly faith or to experience the benefits of Buqh a spiritual quickening The promise of God Is now to every one bollivelh Each morning may bo a resurrection day each evening a time of golden promise fair yet not as fading as the sunset The New Year Joy Is for all of life all tho tign It Is stimulating and encouraging to feel that a broad now year Is offered Jar happy employment and that tho old records with their motley pages riftcun ca to was en s some still vacant and other marred and here and there blotted with tears may be put away and fresh unstained pages In their place It Is helpful to remind one self that those broken resolutions of 1908 may be In 1909 and is better reinforced more of that prayer and divine grace for want of which the Idealizing of the past year were soon forgotten or went so sadly unfulfilled The new year a new hope a new song a now endeavor a now outlook a new Inspiration a now determina non and a new grace every new thing that Is appears to bo possi ble In Us gUt A hope like this makes living A wide chasm seems
