The Quiet Workers.
In every community there are
good men and women who are un
noted- and unrenowued.. They
hold no office, they serve on no
committees. When officials are
to be elected their uames are not
suggested. When honors are to
be bestowed no one thinks of
them. -Thejr are quiet keepers at
home or patient daily toilers in
honorable vocations, living hum
bly on some qui t street, with a
few flowers by the door, but God
keeps his own tally Bheet of the
citizens of a town ; and there is a
possibility that when tho day of
honorable promotion comes the
ortunate ones will be of those
who saw but little of honor at
he hands of their countrymen.
God's estimate of man does not
depend upon how much he pays
ger front foot for hiB property, or
how many stations of responsibil
ity he has held, or how costly an
automobile he drives. Ex.
there will be a large attendance.
