Thü iniigination in all ctirections is building. Toa think that you are throwing out the iet for game ; you think that you are ayiug plans for your accomplishinent ; ut behind all the conscious work that is ;oing on in you, behind your visible atainments, there 3 another work goiug m. There are as uiany niaster worfcmen n you as there are separate faoulties ; ind there are as inany blows being struok is there are separate acts of emotion or rolition. And this work is going on perletually. Every single day these myriad nroes are building, building, building. lere is a great strueture goiug up, point iy point, itory by story, althongh you re not consoious of it. It is a building of charactei. It is a 'building that must ! stand, and tbe word of inspiration mus ' tou to take heed how tob. build it, to see to it that you have a foundation that shall endure ; to make sure that you are building on it, not forthe hcur in which you live, but tor that hour of revelation, when you shall be seen just as you are.
