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.
