THE GREAT QUESTION.
There are many Important Question* to be decided by the young man of to-day, but perhaps one of the dhiofeel is ins life's work.

There is something of sadness In the picture of a well-Pained mini i which is mil being Used lo the ml van- tage of the world.

A STUDENT Y. M. C. A. SECRETARY FOR RICHMOND COLLEGE.
