While she is afraid of a mouse her 
mind is of such delicate mold that 
she instinctively shudders at the 
thought of adding to the terrors of 
a badly frightened mouse "by an 
exhibition of striped stockings and 
blatant demagogery." In fact her 
mind is not made up exactly as to 
the propriety of such a course to- 
ward either mice or men. Indeed, 
her mental attainments, as well as 
her maidenly inatincts, are of such 
lofty cast that it is doubtful that 
she has even considered the matter

contemptuous estimate is exjiressed 
by saying of one that he Ih not worth 
a groat, while the worldly every- 
where are ready to fall down and 
worship a man who is reputed to be 
rich. With them the more he has the 
(greater is his worth. In himself he 
may be mean, Ignorant, vicious, and 
of despicable character, but frold

Tlie trath is men eeldom perceive 
wherein trae worth lies. As Juvenal, 
nearly eighteen centuries ago, said in 
his tenth Satire: "Among all the in- 
habltanta of the earth, from Cadiz to 
tbe Indies, how few are to t>« fouud 
capable of forming a sane judgment 
of what is truly good or truly evil? 
How few can penetrate that mist of 
error which circumserllws all our 
views The greater number tie the 
noose fur themselves by the treasures 
whieh their anxioBS cares and la- 
bours have amassed. They blindly 
toil to exceed other men In wealth aa

The secular wise of all times have 
inveighed against the foIl3- of tliitik-

ing that worth in any way depeti^s

that they are powerful for good as

a series of raps, alternating with n 
rasping noise, but so feeble and indis-

yon mast have trouble yourself before 
yon can comfort trouble in others. Itut 
come til ye who have Ih-cu Is'reft and 
ye who have been ciiinforted in ^-our 
sorrows, and stand around these af- 
Weted souls and say to them: "I had

it is swollen, and there is irritation,

w-here there ought lo l>e healing and 
cooling. The surgeon comes in and 
aays: "WkatdoaaaUtkiaamaa? Yoa

unless you let it alone" Mo 
are souls broken ilown in sorrow. 
What they most want is rest, or very 
• arefiil and ^:l'ntIe treatment; hut the 
iiei;.i-hbors have heard of the licrcave- 
mcnt. or of the loss, and they come in

Again I remark: tkat all tkOM per- 
sons are incompetent to give any kind 

of e.iinfort w lio act mer^ aa teorldly

make to that father and mother what

ami it makes no iliffercnee whether 
the trouble was in the epiga.stric or 
hypogaatrie r a g toa. If the pbiloso-

Hut there arc tlir.-c or four eonsi.ier- 
ationsttia*. I \vill briioj- lo those who 
are .sorrowful and distressed, and that 
we can alvraya bring to theas, knowing 
that they tsrill eflbet a care. Aad tke

They seem to think trod has some 
gruilge iiirainst thein because trouble 
and misfortune have com.-, oh, no. 
Do you not remember that pas- 
sage of Scriptnre: "Whom the Lord 
lovath He ihastiBltkr A ehUd 
I imms ia witk a very had epiinter 
in its hand, and you try to extract it. 
It is a very painful operation. The 
child ilraws back from you. but you 
persist. You arc going to take that

with a ^'etitle but tirin grasp, for al-

aaS kaat tke moaster, so I wonld kava 
yon, if I thought these misfortunes 
were sent by an enemy, go out and

come from a Father so kind, so hiving, 
.so gentle, that the i rophet speaking 
of his teniierni'ss and mercy, drops the 
idea of a father and says, "aa one 
whom his mother eonrfaatalki aa miU I 
comfort you." 

Again I remark there ia comfort in 
the thought that (!<h1 by all this pnv

"No man is fit to win," says Bulwrr,
