IS CHARITY WORTH WHILE?
Not Diless it is "tke Kill Tiugkt Neirly
Two TkogsnJ YeirsAgo."
Ruth Ashmore oontributea a helpful
and practical paper on “Is Charity Worth
While?" lo May Ladies' Home Journal,
thus ssmmatiiing her disoourae: “But,
after all, what we want to do, you and I,
is to fill our lives with charity so that to
whomever there may come need we can
give help. The help may exprtsa itself
in material things; it may be in the
sympathy of kindly words, or it may be
apoken only by the pressure of tbe hand.
There is no charity in having your name
on the list of generous givers while some
one Desr to you stays within doon be
cause her coat is shabby, or because her
olothiog is not snSoiently warm. There
is no charity in the giving of much
money if you have been harsh and cruel
to some one who deserved you oonsideTa-
tion, and have made that one heart feil
that there is nothing in tbe world but
bitterness. There is no charity in your
being willing to write checks that repre
sent much money when you are quick to
speak tho unkind word, or to show to
those who are around you a heart eaten
up by pride, and lips that utter no words
save those of scorn. All the gold in the
world will count u nothing unless your
charity is like that which was taught to
the world nearly two thousand years ago-
It meant that to feed the hungry, take
care of the sick, to forgive the sinner,
and lo help, aiwaya in the best way,
whoever asks for help waa Christ's charity.
That is the charity, my friend, that you
and I want to try to imitate. Begin by
being charitable with your lips, by being
oharitable in your thoughts and acts.
And if, of your little store there can only
be offered a few pence, you may be
certain that they will be reckoned by
Ood Himself aa greater than the many
millions given by those who are so unwise
as to think that charity means only the
giving of tbe least of all things—money,”

The way train ahead of us had struck
an open awitch and had been ditcbcd,
and two passengers wore killed outright
and five or six othen more or leas injured,
runs a story in Tbe Detroit Free Press.
Tbe killed and injured were lying on the
depot platform os our train came up, and
among the latter waa a professional

doctor had looked him over. The vaga

“Ar‘ my legs off?"
“No; you are fatally injured, however."

over, but ain't doin' no kickin’. My

“That's right; you never was no kicker,

moment in silence and tben whispered;
“Tom, ye ar' the only pardner I ever
had aa knowed tbe Lird's prayer. Just
say it over to me."
The old tramp pulled off bis cap and
knelt down, and ss the score of us uncov

the prayer word for word, and with such
feeling as astonished everybody. When
he bad finished be rose up and said:
“Thai's it, Jim, an' kin I do anythin'

A standing joke around the Main
courts is the juror who stands out and
refuses lo agree with the eleven obstinate
men, who don't think as he does. Judges
are sot apt to take kindly to this style of
man, and bave been known on occasions
to give him a terrible snubbing. “There
is still living in this city,” says a Bangi
gentleman, whe thinks juron have rights
of opinions as well as judges, "a man
who is very proud of a little experience
he had as a juror. It was in Judge
Cutting’s day, and that excellent jurist,
was on tbe beoob. Tbe jury had heard
an important case, and failed to agree
because this part.cular juror stood
against the arguments sod solicitations
of hie fellows, and declared he would
stay there till the anis ate him up and
carried out bis remains through the key
hole before he would ooosent to what be
believed to be an unjust verdict. Judge
Cutting asked how they stood, the fore
man replied, eleven to one, your honor.'
‘Who is the one?’ asked the judge, an
grily. 'liOt him stand up,' The juror
arose and received a scathing rebuke from
Mr, Gutting, who promptly discharged
bin from further duty. The case went
over to tbe next term and was again tried
resuUing in a verdict in accordance with
the views of the one juror. It was then
taken tu the law court on a motion for a
new trial and was upheld by the full
beneh as manilestly right. Tbe man
Bays that whenever be thinks of that
ease, he thaoks God he had the sand to
stick to what he believed to be right,

When she reachcd home she gave the
rose to her mother, a sad faced woman,
whose beautiful brow was prematurely
drawn with lines of sorrow.
“Oh, bow lovelyl" said the surprised
mother. “Where did you get it dear?"
“I found it on the walk oo my way

“From church! You, certainly don't

“In your rags? Oh, my little Carroll^
how could you go?"
“Why, you see, I just couldn’t seem to

“No one saw me that I knew of except

He opened bis eyes suddenly, and
with a great effort raised himself on bis
pillow, bis grimy hands clutching nerv

a look of horror in his bleared eyes. His
