*'.ord for Great Army of People
That Do Their Duty. Faithfuily
there is one thing more than an
other that the world needs to learn in
these lush and flashy days, it is the
heroism of the conmnonplace. The wor
8hip of success, of wealth, of high
place, of power, of fashion, of social
distinction, have all operat(ed to blind
our eyes to the essential nobility of th,
man who goes qpiekly about his busi
nes, performs tihe duties of (itizenl
ship in an unobstrutive way, takes
a of his wife and (h11iidrel. pays
his taxes honestly, is kind to his nei.hi
bors, and is nit merely o(ntent but
glad to keep out of the world's taze.
Lowell wrote of o suhi womal:
Yet in herself I she dwelleth not.
Although ni home were half so fair,
No simplest tiuity it forgot.
Life had no dim and lowly spot
That doth not in her sunshine share
She doeth little kindness
Whieh most. leave undone, or dispire
For naught that gets one heart at ease
An'd giveth happiness or peace.
Is low-esteemed inl her eyes.
She ihath 11o sornl eo ofln thins.
And thout-gh she svenm of other )ir-th
iound us her heart entVwines antd
Ald patienitly she folds her winig-s
To tread file huibie p1ath ol earth.
Blessingu.s she is. (od made her so.
And doeds of week-day holiness,
Fall from her 1141iseless as the snow.
Nor hath she ever ehanced to knov
That aught. were easier than to bless

Miehael Dariody died at the age of
S1 in Kausas Citv the other day. The
long round in his many years from
eaIrly boyhood had been spent in toil
of the coarser kind. He started as
a common laborer and never "advan
ed " to higher material things. Pos
sibly he was open to the change of
lack of ambition, for it may be that
he had within him qualities which,
exercised rightly, would have placed
him well forward of the humble posi
tion he occupied. But seemingly le
was content to be one of the verv
ordinary sort-in some things. Un
til his death nobody considered it
wt,rth while to say mnch about him
A. his giet, kindly. helpful ways. He
lived his life in moderate. unobstru
sive fashion, hoarding in an obscure
locality nitd paying $3.50 a week for
his "keep''. He had no family and,
far as any of his boarding house or
working acquaintances knew, no vices.
He amstained from intoxicants and
lie never uses tobacco.
The gniding principal of Mr. Dar
Imodys life was economy; lie was eco
nomical in ever-ything save morals.
To him extravaalice wis a sinl and
waste a crime. He accepted ihevr

carehilly and snmcessfIl ly that when,

reach ot want, but had enough money
