If So, You Never Fawn, Flatter, Envy or Are Jeal ous. : : : : : By ELLA WHEELER WILCOX. Copyright, 1913, by Aerican-Journal-Examtner. 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 malice. That Is a part of a good neighbor's duty. 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 and popularity? 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 brotherly love. 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 his flesh. 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 mistakes. 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.

Toduy, If wo should revise the list mice more, there can be no doubt as to what I would stand at tho neau it wouiu Da the Panama canal. In order to bo accepted as a "wonder" any work of man must make appeal to tho Imagination. That It ex cites admiration Is not enough! It must also awaken the feeling that In crentlng It man has taken u step forward, beyond tho line of his previous achievements. Regarded In this way the Panama ralial Is without rival, as the Intense In terest shown by the entire world In Us approaching completion proves. For the first time In his history man has directly Joined two oceans, the great est on tho globe. For the first time ho has cut two continents asunder. Thus ho has made himself, In effect, a geolo gical agent. I it their appeal to tho Imagl- nation all his former works sinks Into lelatlvo Insignificance. If some new Herodotus were to go wan dirlng through our modern world In search of marvels he would, on arriving at Panama, find no words strong enough to express his amazement. Ho would ex claim that tho Americans had defied the gods by changing their arrangement of tho face of the earth! In ordor to understand what the Panama canal means as an example of human in terference with geography we must .look at what nature had clone on the same spot. For this purpose take a map show ing Ihe Central American and Went In dian region, with indications of the depth of water on both sides, and a raised chart, like Mr. Ciray's, exhibiting a bird's; eye view ot the line of the canal across the Isthmus.

Among tliaip waa John Pryor, son of the munlmed man. 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 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.

Two bright little boys named Harry and Will Were just of the same size und the sanie age, until One day In their travels It chanced that they met A queer little creature, surnamed Cigar ette. Thlk iiueer little creature made friends with the boys, And told them a story of masculine Joys Ho held for their sharing, "1 tell you," quoth he, "The way to he manly and big la through me." Will listened and yielded, but Harry held out, "I think your assertions are open to doubt," He said. "And, besides, I'm afraid I'd be sick." "Afraid!" echoed Will, "Oh, ypu cow ardly stick! "Well, I'm not afraid; look here!" as he spoke, He blew out a halo of cigarette smoke Five years from that meeting 1 saw them again. The time had arrived when they both should be men.
