Epigraph
"These Heroes of the former days
Deserved and gained their never-fading bays."
The Boys and Girls of our To-Day,
Who fare along Time's opening way,
Still looking forward, blithe and free,
To find what each may do and see.

To you, exuberant with life,
Exultant, even in the strife,
To you, so rich in buoyant hope,
And fearing not with ills to cope,
We look expectantly, and cry
Concerning daytimes passing by.

While thinking of the future track,
Taking ample time for looking back
To see where Hero-souls have trod,
Along the way that leads to God --
The path of faith and helpful deeds,
For souls a-thrill with others' needs.

To you, with pulses beating high,
Hath Opportunity come nigh.
What pathways open, wide and far!
Whate'er you do, Whoe'er you are,
Be quick to find and fill your place,
For your To-morrows come apace.

Peoria, Illinois.                J. H. J.
Dedication
First words
Did you ever think that there could be a time when England needed missionaries? How could that be, when we remember that our forefathers, who came from there in the Mayflower, and in ships that followed, were such earnest Christians?
