    Friend, Lave you ever asked your self the question? “Is my neigh- borhood any the better for my presence in it?” Has your com- munity life been such that were yon to remove to some other local- ity you ouid be really missed, and missed with regret?

    We believe that many of us who consider ourselves good citizens and good neigh hors, if we were to seriously consider this question, would be somewhat puzzled to find the correct answer.

    We all know people of our com mutiny oi whom it were i.ile tc ask this question. We know beyond question that they are a real asset to any community mat is so fort- unate as to claim them. Let us, then, in the light his neighbors get most of his load. He is also the man you send for if you have a aiek horse or cow; if your crops do not turu out to suit yon, yon con-! suit him Y u c.rll on him, if H ! subscription is to tie circulated, and he is always ready to not only! to chip in, but he cheerfully j takes the paper from house to I house and from man to man until the object is atamed. In fact, wheu we contemplate the number of “thanky" jobs he nets through 1 with in the run of a year we often wouder how on earth he has found time to attend to his own affairs. But he has, and he has attended to them well.

    The truth is - that w all waste many valuable hours and days that might better be given to these i kindly ministrations to others Coimon and pleasure. We pouuer our own cares aud perplexities, l burdens and sorrows until they, loom as mountains iu our pathway j obscuring our neighbors aud their affairs, until we frequently forget that they, too, have cares aud sor- rows, many times more grievous than our owu.

    It would ne of real benefit to us if we ceuld at times forget self, and enter into the joys aud eor rows of others.—Ex.
