hope this paper will come into the hands of many of the noble army of young people who have been giving instruction in the pub lic schools the past sum mer I wish to talk with you about the work you have been do ing and the work that is before you If you have been a good and successful teacher you have come to love your pupils and you will always be interested to watch their progress and hear of their welfare In many cases the teacher is the best educated person in the dis trict Perhaps you know more of history and arithmetic and science than any one else in the neighbor hood I hope this fact does not make you proud It ought to make you feel very sober as you remember what a responsibility you have young as you are as a kindof leader in the neighborhood Now I wish to talk to you a little about your future career You have gotten a good start and I wonder whether you are going to be satis fled with that or whether you will reach out for something better I truly believe that you will benefit yourself and be of more benefit to the world if you come to Berea to school this winter Let me give you some reasons In the first place you wish to see a little of what is going on in the world outside your own coun ty No doubt your county is a good oneyou have the right to love itbut God never puts all the good things into one place Now the best way to get hold of the best things is to spend a little time at a really good school Here you meet teachers from the best schools in the East and the West theIthe best from different counties and different states The next reason why you should come this winter is that every teach er will be your friend It will be worth something to you all your peoplelike verylongneed more training andeducation in order to win the best success in life and you can get it the quick est at Berea You ought to have- a plat for your future life It maybe that you will not be able to carryout that plan exactly as you make it but you will never accom plish anything unless you first plan something You waht to aim at somethingandat something good and satisfying reallyfirstclasssome day to be superintendent in your county you ought to have a thorough drill in a Normal Course Some yourg ladies do not wish to teach all their lives but they still need further education There the opportunity at Berea to study the work of a nursethec- are of the sick at the Hospital Many a young woman has saved the lives of friends and neighbors because she had a little knowledge about nursing Another way for girls to earn money is by teaching music A few terms at Bcrca if you have a taste for it would fit you to give lessons to your neigh bor girls at home And every young woman wishes to have the best kind of a home of her own We provide instruction in sewing dressmaking cooking gardening Many of our young men are studying the trades carpentry and printing Every year people are building better houses using better furniture and those who are skill ed can earn the best wages because they can do the best work In your lifetime there will be a great development in this country The people who have skill will profit by this development and those who have not enough enterprise to learn a trade will be pushed in the great march of progress There is the best of instruction also at Berea in regard to farming Whether you take the farm Course or not you will pick up a great many ideas about the care of stock the rotation of crops the care of forest lands and other things which will benefit the people A still greater reason for coming here this winter is that you will learn to enjoy many of the higherrpleasures of life You have had a little taste of these higher pleas ures You have heard some good music and some good addresses at teachers institutes You have perhaps read one or two books that have given you a little idea of these higher pleasures Come to Berea and find out more about them What a pity it is that any one should live and die and know nothing about some of the best things that there are in Gods world Come to Berea and get acquainted with its teachers and students and you you will become a member of a choral class and a literary society and find yourself enjoying things that are bettcrthan any you have ever known Think of the difference between a winter wasted at home and a winter which may make you twice as much of a person as you noV reoDo not let any obstacle stand in your way You tan get tolschool this winter You may have another opportunitycertain may never have a better opportunity than now For the sake of yourself and your family and your neighbors strike out and ac complish something worth while this winter And one thing more I can say to you with all confidence that it will pay you to perform a long journey if necessary to reach Be rea When you are going to school you want to go to the test stool It costs no more to attend the best school than to at tend a poorer one We have spared no pains to make Berea really the best school for you We have gathered the best teachers from far and near We have secured the best build ings of any school in this region We have the largest college library in Kentucky and much expensive scientific apparatus We have a variety of courses of studies to suit all who come Bcrca is the only school which draws students from the North as well as the South Many of the best people of the whole country have taken an inter est in Berea College Theodore Roosevelt has written letters of commendation and Helen M Gould came all the way from New York to visit it So we

once in awhile we notice re ports of what certain men have done on socalled abandoned farms Oftei the returns from the land are quite phenomenal The explanation is that some man with both brains and money has taken hold and put into practice business methods land these been put Into operation from the first there would have been no abandoned farms Men that have Investigated the condi tions In localities where such lands have been thrown out of cultivation have found that the lands had becomi run down through constant cropping without putting back the manure necessary to keep up the fertility What Is true of time east is equally true of the west and unless the meth ode on some of our fauns change the time is coming when the forma will cense to give a living There are two unfortunate clauses of men that try to run farms those that have money nm no brains for agricultural enterpriser and thote that have brains and r money The latter class Is however of the two the more likely to succeed In these days of agricultural colleges experiment stations and abundant opportunities there is no reason why the man that line money cannot obtain the necessary brain development to

boyI nm not very bi- gJctI was in Ohio visiting some rein tlTCH One tiny when playing In the barnyard I saw very large turkeygob bIer People call them gobblers not because they gobble everything they can emit but because they talk way down In their throats and time only word they can say IB gobble and that word they say over andover again with a great flourish of their wings and tall Well I had on short trousers long red stocking and n red necktie this turkey did not see me at first but I saw him and said gobble once or twice I do not know exactly how many tunes I did It but nm sure It was not sore tlinn twice for when he heard me and saw my red stock Ings he made for inn with all sails spread Hi face turned na red as fire and he gave inn to understand that that word gobble was Ida word bey Here he was bigger than a baby car riage and about the shape of one too I was scared and I fairly flew to corncrib close by ran In and shut the door behind me Turn a man came and drove him away The saddest part of this true story Is that I did not get to stay and help eat that old gobbler on the next Thanksgiving day As soon as I got safely out of that oorncrib I went to the house AntI changed my stockings and necktie lied was an unhealthy color to wear In that barnyard The first settlers of this country did not hive Thanksgiving tiny very regu lar but when they did they also had roasted turkey There were n great many wild time keys in those days anti they were fatter and nicer In November than any other month In the year One turkey nnd n few pumpkin pies would make a meal for family The turkey could be found In the woods and the pumpkins In the corn fieldI sometimes feel sorry for the turkeys about thin time of the year But I would rather be a turkeygobbler than a goose It Is hard to tell which hat the ugliest voice Both have a sad time of It In November and De cember Golden Days- NOISELESS RING GAME It la Real Sport unit May II f Impro Tiled Without Any Kipen- br Anr Mar

Outside Perhaps the greatest reason for coming to Berea is the opportunity that you get to see and learn good things which you could never learn in n small school nearer home A mountain valley is a good place to be born in Some of our teachers at Berea were born in log cabins And a mountain home is a good place to live in But no body ought to settle down and live in the county where he was born without first seeing something of the great worldoutside God never showed all the good things to the people of one valley People make progress by view ing many places and gatherin- wisdom from many men But there are trials and temptations in going away from home It is hard to go among people wit are different from our home folks and may laugh at us And in a great city we may be robbed or led into temptation Travel too i expensive a The best way to get an idea o the great world is to go to Berea where you meet the best young people from twenty different states where everyone is friendly and where there are no temptations except what you bring with you improvementin ing in Berea are worth as mud as what is learned in a school room When a student goes home fro Berea he can generally get a first class certificate and has besides a great bundle of new ideas about farming business and a hundred other thingsideas that will add to his wealth alnd happiness all his life Some folks are afraid the young willcome to know more than they do so try to persuade them to stay away from Berea Even preachers who do not know the needs of the present time do this Do not be deceived You an going 10 school on purpose to set and learn the things you cannot se- and learn at hone You cannot afford to waste your time o money If there is a school ir walking distance of your home g o there and learn all the school can teach But when you have learn ed that much you must go away from home and pay your boar somewhere else When you thus start away you want to go far enough to reach the best school If you really believe in yoursel- and f think you arc worthyof a education you will not be satisfied with any school but the best How to Pick the Best School Many people make mistakes because they do not know how to pick out the right school to at tend There is as much difference in the points of schools as of horses In many schools the student goes home every week and hi mind is taken away from his studies At Berea everything so arranged as to be most favor able to study Of course students make more rapid progress here 2 In most places where there are schools there arc saloons and countless temptations At Berea there arc no temptations except those that a student brings with him Of course Berea students arc safer and show greater improvement in character j 3 In many schools the lessons are only 20 minutes long At Berea they are 45 and 55 minutes long and naturally the students get better instruction and more drill 4 In many schools three or four teachers try to carry on all of the grades and branches At Berea there is a special teacher for each lower grade sometimes two or three and a special teacher for each department of advanced study In this way the instruc tion is certain to be vastly better 5 In many schools the only things toteach from arc the books and a few maps At Berea there are thousands of dollars worthof ex pensive apparatus Arc not good tools as profitable and necessary in education as anywhere else 6 In many schools there is nothing to read except the text books Berca has eighteen thous and books and six literary soci eties a band glee clubs etc which help the young people to find amusement and recreation that will be profitable 7 Most schools are conducted to make money and often theI teachers take little interest in theI students At Berea every teacher is a Christian man or woman and will be a real friend Thousands of men and womon suffer from piles especially women with female weakness havo this suffering to contend with in addition to thoir other pains Tablers Buckeye Pile Ointment will quickly effect a cure Prico 50 coats in bottles tubes 7B cents S E Welch Jr Apprentice Courses Some young men and young women come to Berea with very little money and with no friend who can or will help them Such students can of course stay only a short time The thing for them is to btcomt able to tarn money as quickly as possible For this purpose we offer them the Apprentice Courses in which students give half then time to learning a trade which will help them in earning money and the other half in such studies as arc most necessary like arithmetic and the history of our country For young men the apprentice toolsgis always work for a good car penter oFor the young women the ap prentice courses are two one in Nursingcare of the

sought when Chlno contracted for IU first lot of oiled roads some 25 or 30 miles in length Hut It was soon dis covered that oil might bo node to buildup a surface that would resist the wear of travel and that Is the great aim of the later practice there Mr White said that the roads were originally con structed by a contractor who guaranteed a dusttoss rood front May till December luring the first sensors the contractor sprinkled them three times Subsequently this town undertook to care for the roads Itself and it was then found that one application of oil would do Inure good than time co truetors three Oilsprinkled directly on n sandy o alluvial IIolld will do little good Mr White says It should be surfaced with a firmer material before the oil Is np plied Sand properly covered mules

1000 by Louis Klopseh This discourse of Dr Tnlmage Is n fulllength portrait of a virtue which nil admire and the lecsons taught are very hulpful Text Hebrews 1030 Ye have tucdof patience Yes we are In awful need of It Some of us have n little of it and some of us hare none nt all There is less of this grace In the world than of almost any other Forth hope and charity are all abloom in hundreds of souls where you find one specimen of patience Paul tin author of the text on n conspicuous oc canton lost his patience with a co worker and from the way he urges tlui virtue upon the Hebrews upon the Co rlnthlnns upon the Thessalonlans up on the Itomnns upon the CoIoFtlans upon the young theological sudden Timothy I conclude he was speaking out of Ills own need of more of this excellence And I only wonder that Paul had any nerves left Imprison went flagellation Mediterranean cy shone arrest for treason anti conspir ncy the wear and tear of preaching to angry mobs those at the door of n

others are subject to occasional paroxysm Almost everyone has some disorder to which ho Is occasionally subjected It Is rheumatism or nell ralgla or sick headache or indigestion A draft from an open window or hasty mastication or overwork brings on that old spell nod you think you would rather love almost anything else but that Is because you have not tried the other Almost everyone has something which he wishes he had not There art scores of diseases ever ready to attack the human frame They Lore been in pursuit of our race ever since Adam and Fee re signed their Innocence ns well ns the worlds health It Is amazing how per slstent and methodic those disorders err in their attack on the world nnd how regular is tho harvest which with the sharp scythe of pain they mow do vn for the

of human life The doctors with fdullons and lancets and anodynes and cataplasms ore In a brave fight against the physiological devils that try to possess the human race Hut after all the scientists can do there is n demand for patience Nothing con take the place of that It Is need ed this moment in every sick room and along the streets anti in business- places and shops Where breadwinners are compelled to toll when physically incompetent to move n pen or cal eulatc a column of figures or control n shovel Hut every pastor could show you instances of complete hap pines under physical suffering He could take yoil to that garret or to that hospital or to some room in his parish where sits in rocking chair or lies upon a pillow some one who has not seen n well day In ten years and yet has never been heard to utter n word of complaint The grace of God has triumphed in her soul as it never triumphs in the soul of one Who i vigorous and athletic That grace helped the soldier during the American civil war Ills arm had been amputated nnd he said to a delegate of the Christian commission It seems to me I cannot be grateful enough for losing my arm It made wayforgrace was

writ ing Ivnnhoc Oh beautiful grace of patience It takes discords and turns them Into harmony It smooths the chopped sea It kindles gloom Into glow It turns requiem into grand tunnel It trusts when it cannot understand It forgives before forgive ness is asked Gracious God Give it to us give it to us now give it to us in abundance Now let us this hour turn over n new leaf and banish worriment and care out of nil our lives Just see how these perversities have multiplied wrinkles in your face and acidulated your disposition and torn your nerves You nro ten years older than you ought to be Do two things one for the betterment of your spiritual con dition and the other for the safety of your worldly interests First get your heart right with God by being pardoned through the atonement of Jesus Christ That will give security for your souls welfare Then get your life Insured In sonic wellestab lished life Insurance company That will take front you nil anxiety about the welfare cf your household in case of your sudden demise The salutary influence of such insurance is not stir flclently understood Many a bread winner long since de ceased would now have been alive rAnd well but for the reason that when he was prostrated he saw that In case of his decease his family would go to the poorhonse or have an awful strug gle for dally bread Hut for that anx iety he would have got well That anxiety defied oil that the best ply Iclans could do Supposing these two duties attended to the one for the safety of your soul In this world and the next nnd the other for the safety of your loftily If you pass out of this life make n new start If possible have your family sittingroom where you can let In the sunlight Have n musical instrument If you can afford it harp or piano or bass viol or parlor organ Iearn how to play It yourself or have your children learn how to playout It Let bright colors dom brats In your room If there arc pic tuna on the wall let them not be sug gestive of battlefields which ore al ways cruel of deathbeds which ore always sad or partings which are al ways heartbreaking There are enough present woes in the world without the perpetual commemora tlon of past miseries If you sing In your home or your church do not al ways choose tunes of long meter bar- r better to have your patience aug mented by the consideration that the lIooni100 years but few lire to SO while the majority quit this life before You ought to bs able God helping you to stand It as sang as that for then by the grace of God you will move into campand excellent surroundings Inlo

down that poor suffering world I will go to assuage anti comfort and sus tain until the world Itself expires and an all its mountains nnd In at Its valleys and on mill Its plains theru Is not one soul loft thirst has need of pa tience 1 REA KYTHURSDAY DECEMBER 8 1900 I Got n a View Outside Perhaps the greatest reason for coming to Berea is the opportunity that you get to see and learn good things which you could never learn in a small school nearer home A mountain valley is a good place to be born in Some of ou teachers at Berca were born in to cabins And a mountain home is a good place to live in But no body ought to settle down and live in the county where he was born without first seeing something of the great world outside God never showed all the good things to the people of one valley People make progress by view ing many places and gatherin- wisdom from many men But there are trials and temptations in going away from home It is hard to go among people who are different from our home folks and may laugh at us And in a great city we may be robbed or led into temptation Travel too f expensiveIthe great world is to go to Berea where you meet the best young people from twenty different states where everyone is friendly and where there arc no temptations except what you bring with you The new ideas and improvement in manners that one gets by liv t ing in Berea are worth as much as what is learned in a school room When a student goes home from Borea he can generally get a first class certificate and has besides a great bundle of new ideas about business and a hundred adcito his life Some folks are afraid the young will come to know more than they do so try to persuade them to stay away from Berea Even r preachers who do not know the needs of the present time do this Do not be deceived You are going to school on purpose to see and learn the things you see and learn at home You cannot afford to waste your time or money If there is a school in walking distance of your home go there and learn all the school can teach But when you have learn ed that much you must go away from home and pay your board somewhere else When you thus start away you want to go far enough to reach the best school If you really believe in yourself and think you are worthy of an education you will not be satisfied with any school but the best How to Pick the Best School Many people make mistakes because they do not know how to pick out the right school to at tend There is as much difference in the points of schools as of horsesI many schools the student goes home every week and his mind is taken away from his studies At Berea everything is so arranged as to be most favor able to study Of course students make more rapid progress here 2 In most places where there are schools there are saloons and countless temptations At Berea there are no temptations except those that a student brings with him Of course Berea students are safer and show greater improvement in character 3 In many schools the lessons are only 20 minutes long At Berea they are 45 and 55 minutes longand naturally the students get better instruction and more drill 4 In many schools three or four teachers try to carry on all of the grades and branches At Berea there is a special teacher for each lower grade sometimes twoI or three and a special teacher forI each department of advanced study In this way the instruc tion is certain to be vastly better 5 In many schools the only things to teach from are the books and a few maps At Berea there are thousands of dollars worth ofex pensive apparatus Are not good tools as profitable and necessary in education as anywhere else 6 In many schools there is nothing to read except the text books Berea has eighteen thousand books and six literary societies a band glee clubs etc which help the young people to find amusement and recreation that will be profitable 7 Most schools are conducted to make money and often thei teachers take little interest in students At Berea every teacher- is a Christian man or woman and will be a real friend Thousands of men and women suf fer from piles especially women with female weakness Lavo this suffering to contend with in addition to their other pains Tablers Buckeye Pile Ointment will quickly Affect a euro Prico 60 cents in bottles tubes 75 cents S E Welch Jr Apprentice Courses Some young men nnd young women come to Berea with very little money and with no friends who can or will help them Suc students can of course stay onl a short time The thing for them is to tuner quicklyga we offer them the Apprentice Courses in which students give half their time to learning a trade which will help them in earning money and the other half in such studies as are most necessary like arithmetic and the history of our country For young men the apprentice toolsgis always work for a good car penter For the young women the apprentice courses are two one Nursingcare of the sick foe for the sick etc Trained nurses earn a dollar a day and frequently more The other is in Housework cooking sewing care of house etc Girls who can hardly earn a dollar a week when they come to us soon become able to earn two dollars a week and even more and at the same time they are get ting ready for their own home duties whenever the time may comeEvery family within five hund red miles of Berea ought to have at least one child in some department of this grsat echool Now Course In Applied Science This course occupies only two years and is the best course for most young people It contains the most practical sciences and the history and other studies that make good citizens For the young men in this course there are studies in the use of tools Botany which means the growth of plants Gardening Care of Stock Farm Management and other things that make successful farmers For the young women there are courses in Sewing Dressmaking Gardening Cooking Care of the Sick and other things
