“DO UNTO OTHERS ”
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.
