Now/1 think as Kobbie Burns says: "O wad some power the giftie gi'o us, to see our selves as others see us," and it would prevent many previous mistakes on the part of young men choosing their life's occupation.

A Glad stone should not spend his life behind the plough, nor a Lincoln splitting rails, yet tin-re are so many misfits in the professions and the different occu pations of life that point directly to a wrong choice. It is the case of a round tenant to lit a square mortis.
