Kind words do not cost much.
They are quickly spoken. They
do not blister the tongue that
otters them. They never have to
be repented of. They do not keep
os awake till midnight. It is
easier to scatter them. And oh,
how much good they may do !
They do good to the person from
whose lips they fall. Soft words
will soften the soul. They will
smoothe down the rough places of
our natures. Care to say kindly
things will drill our natures in
kindness. It will help pull up all
the roots of passion. It will give
us a spirit of self control. It will
make the conscience delicate and
the disposition gentle. A woman
cannot make a habit of speaking
kind words without augmenting
her own gracious temper. But
better will be their influence upon
others. It cold words freeze peo.
pie, and hot 'words soorhb them,
and bitter words madden them, so
will kind words teproduoe them.
selves and soothe and quiet and
comfort the hearer. They make
all the better elements of one's
nature come trooping to the our
asee. They melt our stubbornness.
They arouse an appreoiation of
better things. Let us say the
kindly word. No one can tell how
many burdened hearts may be re
lieved, hcw many discouraged
souls may be inspired. Try it
every day; to the one who disturbs
you while you are busy, asking
for work; to the one who has al
most lost hope, to all. Bemem.
ber, kind words can never die.
