It is a per son who will lnconvlence himself for you. It is a man, bays an exchange, who will sit by your bedside when your frarno has been tortured by disease. It is a man who will come to you when the muttering thunders of misfortune growl along the sky. It is the man who will say, "Don't bo discouraged; I see you arc in trouble; let mo help you." It is not the man who will talk to you In a pleasant way for policy's sake. It is not the man who will do a kindness only when he feels that he will get In return full value for his ser vice rendered.

Successful Life. v In all caees and under all circum stances, Character Is at once ''the base and the keystone" in the completed arch of a successful life. No young man or young woman can estimate too high ly, the essential force of "character" and whilst by nature we are each and all endowed with certain Inherited charactsrlstlcs, we may strengthen those which are desirable, though they be naturally weak or dormant uud we may curb and control those not desir able though they seem strong aud pre dominant. Endeavor to make your life high and noble, etTective and help ful, tender and sympathetic and jour life will bo a happy and suceebbful life. The Chariot.

They often act as surgeons, aud they make a specialty of piercing the ears of young girls for ear rings, while barbers' wives are almost always hairdressers. I. Ike Sliootliitf ;iiont.
