It is trite, to nay tb at love is the
rtest motivo power that raos tho nui
terse Wo know it, foal it and nobody
disputes it. Sut too orten we fail to
realize the terring consequences to
ourselves, that follow the nursing of
wrath, the'cultivation--, of hate, the
harboring of evil fchongbts.
Somebody has said, the gentlest are
the daring, the loving are the brave,
or something to that effect, and it is
true. The eternal nursing hf hate
dwarfs tho soul and not ?only shuts
out the sunshine of love, 'which is as
essential to the development of the
better traits, of human obaraoter as
".otto's sunshine io to tbe ripened
fruit; but H feeds upon itself and like
aparasiteff a cancer,. cats ?ito the vir
t8ls of character.
A man may be strong-, vigorous, ro
bust. Ho may havo^enough vitality
lDd steam to ruo a little world, but
jf bc nurses wrath and continually
tries to get even with his enemies; if
bc gives way to his hates and spends
bis days and nights in thinking of his
wrongs and of the dark spots on the
character of others, ho will shrivel up/
|0d become as profitless as the tree
that has heed sapped., ij|
Love begets love, and hate ?ngete
bate. Wo nan no more nurse our
wrath and escapo damage, than we can
.take posion into the systeiri and ex
pect to be unhurt. . ''-|?S
Did you ever stop , to think how
much real good can be. accomplished
by a kindly word, a token of appr?cia
tion, a sympatbetlo look? Not pro-*
fessiooal politeness or the palaver that
is put OD. Not the formal greeting or
the iasinoere demon'?ration. The
man who has the milk, of human kind
ness in his soul, whose life is lighted
with the divine spark of love, who
feels noble impulses. and is honest,
can detect the genuine, heartfelt hand
shake as readily and as unerringly as
the expert picks tho true atone out ot
a bundle of counterfeits-.
Why not "gather up the sunbeams
lying all around our path?" It is
more pleasant to-dwell with kindly
thoughts, to cherish love than hate.;;
It is more profitable, The inan who
go?s prowling through the World" bunt
ing out the bad, living in tho atmos
phere of suspicion, of envy and halley
is denying himself tho ?l?ments that
goto sweeten life, t?? is,drying Up
hisvory soul and retrograding faster
tbau those Whom he maligns. The
nan who "eoattera Seeds of kindness"
will find l,a reaping bye and bye.^.
The magnificent roar 1 that are Just
blooming in such rich profusion, give
?expressed delight to those who cnn
look upon them in life and inhale their
sweet frngrance; hut they are wortL
ICBB to the dead. The Almighty did
not intend that these flowers should
bloom merely to be planed ba
tbs gravea of departed loved, ones.'.
They have a greater mission, a more
tangible and real part to play in1 the
wonomy of to? wialvarae, .
It is a beautiful custom, a sacred
pleasure to pl?oe flowers on tho gravea
of our loved ones. It ia God-like to
speak neill of the dead, to remember
tbs good only? But don't save all of
tbe flowers for the cemetery. Don*t
store up all your gc jd words and kind

It is every now ?nd then that you

the decent, .common sense and irre
sponsible citizens of the public
against suoh breaches of propriety and
perpetrations of unbecoming conduct.
A modest woman would not allow a
husband tb make suoh an'unwonted,

it may be, nor would a right*thinking

that it became necessary that tho two'
heads oome together, apparently for
conversation, though both seemed to
be feeling too pleasant to say a word.
Af ter a while tho train had shaken off
the city limits, and as the bar? fields
and scanty woods commenced to go
by the window, righten the gaze of
au entire car full, ?hose attention
had been attracted and became' trans
fixed,.this woman tucked her head at
aa angle of about twenty*fiye degrees,:
with a leanioe movement. Things
were progressing. \ The man wrench

i then an elbow appeared, then his hand,
with utter compujure, fetoleV out along
jibe top of ^he'seat. ^Hia hand was
not that of a countryman or meohanio,
as might be . amagtne'd.' ? Splash of
ink on thc middle nng?r showed that
he* was an .accountant or manager of
some ti?ncern. His general get-up
showed that ho would have washed
his hand had he not been in a tre
mendous hurry. The hand was /soon
lost to sight, however, as hiB arm dis
appeared from the top of the'seat.
With ibis assurance the head, hair,
hat, veil and all werft square down on
his shoulder. Subsequently they fell
to eating the same piece of chocolate

five minutes by the watch thia sick

i Thc world to-day is full of innocent su^?rcr? frdn? thc'--most loathsome
diseasr, Contagious Blood Poison. People knoV in ri general way that it is
a bad disease, but if all its horrors could bb brough^ before them they
would shun it as they do the Leprosy. Not only the person who contracts it
suffers, but thc cvrful taint io transmitted to child: cw, and thc fearful sores
and eruptions, weak eyes, Catarrh, and other^ evidences of poisoned blood
ahow theso little innocents are suffering thc awful consequences of some
body 's sin. So kigltly'contagious is this form of blood poison that one may
be c?ntami-itz? l y handling the clothing cr other articles in use by a
person afflicted vriththis miserable disease. There is danger even in drink
ing from tho same vessel or eating out of the same tableware, as many pure?
and innocent men cad werner have found to their sorrow. The virus of

skin is soon covered with a red rash, ulcers break cut ia thc mouth and
throat, swellings appear in the groins, the hair and eyebrows fall out.
and Unless the ravages of the disease are checked nt this stage, more

general breaking .down of the system. . . . .

it is liable to break out, and there is danger
of transmitting the disease to others.
