He should therefore, do a bit of care

There is much to conder and many to

claims to his bet thought in the elec

The latter statement may be aa far
from the truth aa tha slur of the Pitta
burg divine was from justice. The fact
remains that no man or preacher famil

protection of the order would question
one moment that in the action which
Jesus called more blessed than receiv

organization iu the world. '
Composed of men of all creeds, poli
tical beliefs and walks of life, as every
other great fraternal association, their
membership necessarily is motely. Their
morality is not based upon the narrow
teneta of any knpwn church. They
are as drunk, aa sober, as manly, or as
unmanly, as honest, as dishonest, as
able and aa shiftless, as mankind gen
erally, no better and no worae.
But in recognizing the common frail-
ties of the race, the order, like not a
few other of a similar nature, has ex
emplified one great teaching. It ex
tends a helping hand to the wife, as she
rises from the bier of the husband and
father; it leads the orphan into pleas
ant fields; it sustains the brother in the
hour of mental affliction, physical agony
or worldly poverty; without ostenta
tion or hope of reward, it quietly bring
men to those touches of human kind
ness that make the whole world kin.
