On Waste of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 18 August 1877

On Waste of Life. What in our lifo given us for ? If this inquiry wore addressed to cadi one of our acquaintance, what curious diversities of opinion would be evinced by the replies, differing as they all would according to the various characteristics of each indi vidual. Some would say their lives wero giv^n them for enjoyment, and by their actions lead one to believe that they value them exactly in proportion to the amount of pleasure they can obtain. Others, again, Bcem to think lifo is a necessary evil, which must be endured with philoso phy and resignation ; and to these it never appears to occur that there is a higher purpose in life than merely* to exist. A few there aro-but these arc un happily very few-who regard life_ as a precious gift, every moment of which it is "their bounden duty to turn to good account. To these last, the wanto of life they sec around them is perfectly ¡«ex plicable, and many arc tho quiet unobtru sive efforts thoy make, amongst thoir o vu acquaintan...

THE LITTLE YEAHS. These years ! these years ! these naugb'ty years! Once they wera pretty things ; Their fairy footfalls met our ears, Our eyes their glancing wings. They flitted by our school-boy way; We chased the little imps at play. We knew them soon for tricky elves ; They brought the college gown, With thoughtful books filloa up the shelves, Darkened our lips with down Played with our throat, and lo ! the tono Of manhood had become our own. Alas ! those little rogues, the years, Have fooled me ninny a day, Plucked half tho looks above my ears, And tinged the rost all gray. They've loft me wrinkles great and small, I fear they have tricked us all. Well, give the little year» their way ; Tl i i uk, speak and act thc while; Lift up the bare front to tho duy, And make their wrinkles smile. They mould the noblest living head ; They curve thc best tomb for the dead.
