“AND TDK CITY being small and all of the inhabitants thereof knowing >
each other's faults and failings, and irritation coming from constant contact j
one with the other, there arose therein disputes and .
A SERMON bickerings which brought bad feeling and unhappiness, !
albeit nothing of moment was there to cause the day
to be troubled.”—Book of Nemo, t hapter (>. N erse
Dear Brothers: In all the wide world there is no kind of community
which so easily breeds enmity as a small town. This is not the enmity of
the more serious kind but for the time being it looks like the real thing.
In large cities where there are great questions at stake and where violent
political wrangling often occurs one never sees the real bitterness which often
makes life in a smaller community all but unbearable. This cannot be ac
counted for by the statement that the people of large cities are different Dorn
the people of the smaller ones, for they are not. Both are possessed of the
same characteristics and are subject to the same tendencies and each is only
the child of environment. In a large town one meets so many w ith whom be
is not familiar enough to have a scrap that he has a chance all the time to
keep away from his hostile friends and sometimes he forgets his troubles,
but in a small burg—Circuit Scott! a poor human cannot turn a corner with- j
out running into some ginny that you know to be the most disreputable j
whelp on earth and who knows the same about yourself.
The fact is that people can become too blamed intimate and human nu- J
turc is such that a close intimacy with it tends to reveal its weaknesses. It
is a trite saying that human nature is weak and faulty and it iollous as a
natural consequence that the more opportunity is given us to observe it the
more vividly will its faults be pres nte.i to our consciousness. And there is
no place where intimacies become so close as in small and isolated com
munities.
One blessing vouchsafed to humanity is the lack of capacity to remember
wrongs or supposed wrongs as the horse is said to lack the capacity of re
membering the cut of the whip. A wrong or a supposed wrong loses its
power to hurt us in direct ratio to the passing of the time since the wrong
was committed, provided always that the cause of the wrong or supposed
wrong is not constantly before our ey>s to remind us as the (lash of the
whip brings back the memory of the cut to the mind of the horse.
In small towns a quarrel is likely to have permanent results even though
the cause of the quarrel might be of the most trivial kind, ihe triviality
of the cause is only like the little lighted match which is often blamed for
burning a great building. The match could not destroy the building alone.
It had to have paper or some cumbustilc substance to work on t<> st.ut the
greater blaze, and in a like manner the first little bit of bickering brings on
more intense trouble between two parties the more they meet each other and
the less they are on their guard against letting the conflagration ot their an
ger spread.
In a small town we all go near knowing the faults of others and they
come pretty near coming to know ours, and those faults are constantly held
before their eyes and ours because we set* each other all the time. I*or thus
reason we should always be ready to allow latitude to each other and to be
a little more charitable. We should remember that people who have faults
often have more than enough virtues to counteract them and that the ba.
ance is not weighed down on the wrong side, taken generally. We should all
try to be as friendly as possible and if we cannot be friendly we can at least
be as friendly as we can. Amen. _
