much to a friend who cornea Into our

what they may be looking; for," waiting
or hoping for; Just a word of cheer, or
sympathy, or encouragement, or, it may
be, a word of counsel. We are. often too
eelf-abeorbed to see what they want, or
perhaps, we are selfishly Indifferent,
rovided we have been pleased and
cheered ourselves. Truly, we are not fit
to be a friend unttt we realise respon
sibility In friendship. The essential thing
Is to be a friend.
A word may save a friend from a fool
ish of an imprudent action, or a very
grave mistake. But we need to have
much tact In speaking the word. A
gentle "suggestion often helps. Friend
ship does not take for granted the rough
telling of faults, or tho making of harsh
criticisms. If it Is necessary to speak a
strong word which will ' arouse con
science and clear the way to nobler
things, the word must be spoken
bravely.. A true friend Is not fine who
flatters, not one who Is blind to our
faults,-but who inspires us to do our
best. To give strength to a friend in
time of weakness or discouragement is
a glorious privilege.

He showed those same men, armed with
guns, with poles, with hatoheta, with
hammers, stopping a limousine on Fifth

fur-llued coat, and hanging him. more
dead than alive, to the nearest lamp post.
He showed tbem that same crowd, ever
