word of anyone.
2. I will repeat no unkind remarks I
hear of anyone, and discourage others
as much as possible from saying unkind
3. I will judge my neighbor leniently
remembering that my own faults
are probably far greater.

others and yet think quite differently ;
this is hypocrisy.

on the failings of others, remembering
these words: "Consider thyself,

The conscience is one part of man
which is not always developed in proportion
to bis age or size, and the reL
proof of a certain boy was very just to

A lad in Boston, rather small for
his age, works in au office as errandboy
for four gentlemen who do business
there. One day the gentlemen
were chafing him a little for being so
small, and said to him: "You will

The little fellow looked at them.
"Well," said he, "as small as I am, I
can do something that neither of you
"Ah, what is that?" said they.
"I don't know as I otght to tell
you," he replied.
But they were so anxious to know,
and urged him to tell what he could
do that neither of them were able to
"I can keep from swearing," said
the little fellow.
There were some blushes on fout
faces, and there seemed to be no anxiety
for further information.
Abraham Lincoln once received a
letter asking for a "sentiment" and

Madam:?When you ask from a
stranger that which is of interest only
to yourself, always enclose a stamp

nt A friend of mind was in an electric
car the other day. Af:er taking his
r~T seat he presently began to be very un
t comfortable, for everybody seemed
amused at him. Glances were leveled
* in his direction, girls gggled, elderly
ladies drew their faces into a pucker,
and the atmosphere of the place was as
I electric as the fluid which sent the car
through the space. After a short interval
the puzzled gentleman diucovered
that it was not he who was the object
of mirth to his comrades on the road
but a poor, shy, blutihing, tearful,
trembling, frightened girl who was
le- sittiug by his 9ide. Sh>3, poor child,
[o- was dressed in outre fashiou, which did
of not please the Bet or people in that
jes conveyance, and, evidently, she had
of met with an accident, for her clothing
be was tumbled and torn, her face bruised
ed and cut, and one haud had been
yp- wrentched, and seemed to be paining
he her very much. I can imagine nothire
ing more brutally ill-bred and rudely
be ighorant and unfeeling than the behavch
iorof those silly girls and boys, and
