PAGE TWENTY THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, JULY 31, 1920. ii : " i ! Reynolds-Davis charge of the Parish of Our Lady of Good Counsel Church in Little Rock previous to coming to Fort Smith in 1906. He has greatly improved the Church of the Immaculate Concep- tion here. Rev. Dr. Horan has labor- ed and still labors indefatigably for the glory of God and the spiritual welfare of his people.

Second--That roughness, bluster- ing, and ever foolhardiness are not manliness. The most firm and courageous men have usually been the most gentle. Third--That muscu'.ar strength is not health. Fourth--That brain crammed omy with facts is not necessarily a wise one. FifthThat the labour impossible to the boy of fourteen will be easy to the man of twenty. Sixth--That the best capital for a boy is not money, but a love for work, simple tastes and a heart loyal to his friends and his God.
