Are You a Good
If So, You
or Are Jeal

By ELLA WHEELER WILCOX.
Are you a good neighbor?
Whath Is a good neighbor?
Perhaps you are a royal good chum
with the popular people ot your town, niid
show them all
sorts of courtesies,
and you rejoice In
their success, and
you defend .them
against envy and
That Is a part of
a good neighbor's
But how do you
conduct yourself If
they get In trouble?.
Are you ready to
stand by them In
poverty and sor
row aa faithfully
as In prosperity
Wilt you be the
last to censure, even If compelled to' be
lieve, when .you hear they have made
grievous mistakes? It Is not a good
neighbor's or a good Christian's place to
deny facts or condone crime.
If yoii know that your neighbor has
outraged the morals and broken tlio
commandments, you arc not to make
yourself ridiculous by saying ho Is an
Innocent or Injured Individual.
But If you are a good neighbor you
will think of his family, and you will
not be' afraid to ahow your friendship;
you (wlll hot be afraid to say to the of
fendeY: "I "a sorry for you',' begin over,
and start life anew.' And you will be
bravo enough to help him to do It.
Again, are you a good neighbor, only
In time of trouble?
There are many such people to be
found In country places. They are filled
with envy of another's success. They
show It by keeping aloof and assuming a
.cold and Indifferent manner.
They try to find some flaw to pick In
the! popular or successful neighbor,
they begrudge him all his pleasures "nd
his triumphs; but let him fall sick or lose
his money and they will fly to his rescue.
. They will show him sympathy in his
misery where they begrudged his con
gratulations In his happiness.
This is admirable In a way. yet not
an altogether commendable quality
If you are this typo of a good neighbor
do not take pride In it.
It Indicates that you are filled with
envy of another's success, and that you
like to bestow favors In a superior posi
tion, rather than from a spirit of pure
If the latter spirit dominates you, you
would bo the really good neighbor, who
rejoices In his brother's hour of pleasure
and sorrows In his days of adversity.
It is a curious fact that hundreds of
people flock to a man when sickness
and death enter his home, and offer, him
every kind of attention and give the
greatest proofs of unselfish regard for
him, who' have previously, In his times of
prosperity and pleasure, been thorns In
It Is, of course, more admirable to treat
a man kindly who Is down than one who
is up, of you have not nobility enough
In your nature to treat him kindly at all
times; but when you wait to Bhow your
good nclghborllncss until disease or death
knocks at his door, you are In a certain
measure, placing yourself with the birds
of, prgywho follow after death o,od di
sease, and not with the song birds that
sing him awa:;e In the sunlit mornings
of the summer.
A good neighbor Is never Jealous; he
never fawns; he never flatters; he never
envies another's success; he congratulates
him sincerely when happiness and pros
perity come; ho sympathizes sincerely
when trouble and sorrow are at his door,
and he encournges him to live 'down error
and start life anew when ha has made
lie makes his -neighbor realize that he
Is at his command when needed, but
he does not obtrude himself either In his
Joys or sorrows.
Aro you a good neighbor?

This picture Is of a "Lady In Blue." We know It,

have said the lady was "In Dutch," or was trying to

said to be the first effort of the futurists to launch
on an unsuspecting world a picturo-peep into tho
visions of a hop fiend or the vagaries of a brain
storm. The "Lady In Blue" can therefore be called
tho mother of the cubists. She can also bo called
other things, and probabb will. Tail has undtmvored

While this dastardly deed was being
done, a llttlo band of cx-confederate sol
diers, on their way home from the sur
render at Appomattox, were resting from
their long tramp only a few miles away.
Among tliaip waa John Pryor, son of the
John, agltuted by some sort of ugly
si.splclon about the "old folks." cut his
rest short and started for home, mul
jpon his arrival Ihere found his father
Idead and his mother distracted with
grief iletweon her sobs his mother re
lated the circumstances of the murder
nid gave him the murderers' names.
The next day grand old Harden Pryor
, was laid to rest. and. kneeling on his
grave. John Pryor, with uplifted faco
and hands, took an oath to himself that
h- would not rest, or engage in any kind
cf business. o long an there was a one
or ins rather s murderers alive,
Reglnnlng the hunt that very day, John
succeeded In killing ono or two of th'-m

tho rest ot them, panic-stricken, fled the
country, hiding, no one knew where.

lynx and the scent of the foxhound, kept
after them. The days grew Into weeks,
tliu weeks Into months, the months Into

were sent to their final account.
Soven years rolled by, and there was
but one of the gang that John had not
got even with, tlut where was that one?
Humor had It that he was In Texas, but
Trxiis Is a big place bigger than the
whole tiermau Kmplre, and "Never
mind," said John, "I'll find him." And
ha did. "I know what you've come for
John," said the man as Pryor approached
him, "but let me go to the houso and say
good-bye to my wife and children." The
request was grantedand a few minutes
later the ciack of a pistol told that John
Pryor's oath was made good. The last
one of the eight scoundrels who had
rnurdered his dear old father was dead.
