"Nothing's the matter with the t man with a grouch, except an ab. f septee heart and missing nerve. e Cheer up, go to work, do your p level best, quit talking misery. n The war's over yonder-not here. n Men are slaughtered yonder- v. they are living here. It's all I clouds there, though a clear day ri here Get out and sell some T goods. Plant some more acres; a do more work than you planned.

I i W`3" 'tie j' Ky. 140 , .ri The "Good(-W'il" Policy. The writer has lived both in city and country, and we fear sometimes that country people are less forgiving and more in clined to cherish grudges or sus picions than city people. This does not mean that city people are any better than country, and small town people, for in many ro-pects they are worse. It does seem however, as if the more isolated lives of our rural pl)eple make for suspicion, di.rtlust, and prejudice against one's neihbors It was a wise saying of some phil oopher. "'Know one another andi you will 1,,'., (one another.'" Let peopie melet t.oether frt qu intly so they can talk over ditf ferenees and eatch g' t t;i,' f th .r'' viewp int, and , (ch will htv. lltor' respect t')r the oher. \\ hre each m i, d .\vell.; and works t; himself it is easier to distrust the other man At any rate we fear there are few things to-day that are doing tw more to hinder happiness and progress in country commulities y than the absence of just this hearty good will among neigh bors. Search your own heart t therefore, Knd Reader, as if be. fore the Master you profess to d serve, and purge it of all bitter- . ness and malice; and have the courage, too, to go and be recon oiled to the man with whom you s have disagreed. k Nor should you be content merely, not to beat ill will to ward any neighbor. You should b have positive good will instead. t Most of all guard yourself against that meanest of sins, the sin of at envy. When you see a man get ting ahead, doing something well a -doing something better perhaps than you would have done it for Heaven's sake join the gen- ta erous, broad-minded group who praise him, and not the little, narrow, peevish brood of do. nothing fault-finders who, en vious of the good name he has n won, prefer to drag him down rather than pull themselves up. There are thousands and thous ands of neighborhoods in the South today that are virtually famishing for lack of leadership; and yet too often when a young man or an older man attempts to lead a forward movement, he is not supported. Oliver Windell Holmes said once that there are just two classes of men,those who go ahead and do someting and those who sit still and say, "Why wasn't it done the other way?" God pity a neighberhood in which practically everybody is in the latter class-though even if that be the case the true leader will nevertheless keep on fighting. Good will, good will-it is in deed one of the crying needs of our time. As a rule a man re veals his own character by his estimate of others. The man who loves other men is likely to be a man himself worth loving. The man who distrusts other men is usually a man who is himself to be distrusted. As a rule we may trust the man who trusts and doubt the man who doubts. And in order to promote good will get your neighbors together -in churches, Sunday Schools, farmers' clubs, .co-oppr iv 84"ies, s4i get'them as oftenl ase possibe V one family to, another.
