We olt times forget, but c..arity's memory nath no bounds. The weakest among us scurried over every bog «nd morass that s- ts our path to ihe secret refuge of the Mirt High in charity's loving arms, and she there gives each of us the laurel ciown we have earned. Wo matter how much wa may be convulsed by passions nch'id by poverty, shadowed by sorrow or braLded by remorse, charity comes tj us in our direst ex:remity and takes |iy the hand and leads u- in rose-strewn a'hs, nctoss flowering meads, beside still waters, until tbe radiance of nee courage and new hope once more shi is, in our feature Every human soul has h- germ of fair fl jwer within, which charity ahvay9 finds and nurses in her run^hine until it expands into full bloom and IragraDce. Charity is chrUtianity stripped of dog matic religion it is Christianity with Cbrst in it, and priest craft left out of i' the God-!ike attribute of the human soul. All crushed and stone-cust, in behavior. She *iood as a marble would staud. Then the savior bent down, and the Savior lu silence wrote on the sand.

For this are we brethren, that we care for the orphan, that we help the helpless, that we wipe away the teat of sorroiv, and comfor: the despondent aod despa'rng. Our friend snip were without heart, our charity but a nam and a by-vcord, if our benevo'ence slumbers cold like dtad embers upon the hearthstone. ''Those who do not give do not live.'' The .y of living is in giving, spending and being spent, in the service the needy. A benevolence as real as it is ne-dfui counts no sacrifice too great, no task too difficult, no demand too ex acting. It relieves the beggar's n^eds •vith cheerfulness, it. assists the poor and suffering with prodigality, and it soolhes the dying with hope. Man is the sublimest creation of God. To th-? whispering winds He gave voice to the radiant sun He gave light to the earth He gave the power of reproduction but to man He gave a scul, added to soul He gave intelligence, and to intelligence H" gave purpose, and to purpose He yave wil1. and to will He gave power.
