There's wisdom in a merry heart.

If life brings us but happiness,
It brir-gi us, wo are told,
What s bard to buy .though rich floes fry

It ebftws the bean's an honest heart,
Thata pai.3 each mac his due,
And hnt a share of what's to spar?,

And Fftde be phecjc less sorrow speak,

Whate'er they will of mirth :

' In tbe command, "Judge not," tbere
can, of course, be no Allusion to official
judgment, or to thcjuiere formation of
opinion. It is something into npetliate
between these something neitber un
avoidable, like personal opinion nor
obligatory, liku tbqse P$cial judgments
which arc pronounced by persons au-
tborized to do so for the good of socie-
ty What is implied is exactly those
fault-findings which arc not required
by personal obligation or public ty.
Thev are cratuitous and needless, and
on this account they imply more $jan
folly or thoughtlessness hi the tttlip
ailly pate. There is malicj because,
being needless, they show a desire to
fasten imputations on those who might
otherwise go uhblamed. j
We little tbink, rwhen we take in

the motive is a low and pontemptiblc

with a look of injured excellence at
finding the sinner qb4urate an4 resent
ful, whey h sjmply asserts bs rights
by repelling a meddlesome interference
with his conscience and hjs affairs, . ?
One of the commonest forms of the
fault is the practice pf pyi speaking, I

easily tempted to yentjlate wbat we

Ifhere id another form of tle yice,
that of pasting suspicion, whjpji is
worse, if anything, than open evil

thing, as open faultrfipding is apt to

his hlfrway charge, his

said : MThis is too' ahaaicfui to. ?Wpute

In a geqeral and most lamentable way,
it works a gradual influence., tft
the standard of good feeling an,c mu.
tual esteem all through the ranks of
social life This one tells of this
fault, that one of that, and another of
still another. To-day you hear some

In this way there, is continual
power brought to bear o depress the
