lhis is a word easily spoken. Yet
how few stop for even a moment to con
sider its import, much less the carrying
out of all that the brief expression im
plies. Kindness has done more for the
human heart than money could possibly
do. It makes the old voting in heart'
to be met upon all sides with Kindness;
it makes the care-worn and weary
mother, father, sister or brother stronger
in contending with the myriad of almost
insurmountable obstacles in life's path.
It makes home the most sacred and
loved spot on earth. It is the human
sunlight of otur existence, and will make
all human nature bow at its shrine.
There is no virtue m our nature to be
more admired or cultivated than that
of kindness. The very dogs upon the
street will reciprocate a kindness at the
hands of even a stranger. Don't be afraid
of spoiling anyone with kindness proper
ly bestowed. It can't be done. Instead
of spoiling, it beautifies the character,
cheers the heart and helps to lift the
burden from the shoulders which
though brave, sometimes grow weary.
Kindness rendered many times gives
more pleasure than when received. Fx.
