    Here's to friends we've yet to meet,
      Here's to those here, all here I greet;

His perseverance never failed; when rejected at Genoa, rejected at Venice, rejected in Portugal, delayed in England and delayed in Spain, he still persevered, amid all the trials of his immortal voyage until on the morning of the 12th of October, 1492, he saw the sand glistening on the shores of the New World, and in a little while heard one of the men on the Pinta call out, "Land! land!" and a new world was discovered.

Honour hath her degrees: there is excess
  In all revenge, that may be done with less.

How easily and contentedly we speak of Jesus Christ as our example. Do we realize what it means? If we did, it would revolutionize our life. Do we begin to know our Bible as He did? Do we begin to pray as He did? How thoughtful He was for others, how patient toward dullness, how quiet under insult! Think of what it meant for Him to take a basin and towel like a slave and wash the disciples' feet! Do we stoop to serve? Can anyone say of us, as was said of Him, that we go about "doing good"? Think of His words, servants of His, "I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you."
  "Christlike is a word often on our lips. Do not speak it too lightly. It is the heart of God's predestination. It is our high calling.
      - [Christ]

In the olden times trees were planted about the home to commemorate events in the family. Grandfather's and grandmother's maple trees still stand in front of the old homestead gate. They were planted on their wedding day many years ago. Large, grand trees they are now, and they have been homes of generations of birds who have been reared amid their branches and taught how to use their wings, and each summer time they seem to increase in number. A new tree was planted when each little child came to gladden the home. They were called birthday trees. Here and there on the homestead grounds stand the memorial trees, planted when some of the loved ones went away from the home on earth to the Father's home above.
      - [Arbor Day]

It has been wisely suggested that each State should choose its own tree, which in every case should be one that will thrive best in its soil.
