BEWARE OF YOUR FRIENDS!
"A man's foes shall be they of his
own household." Matt 10-36.
This applies not only in the fam
ily household, but in the household
of one's friends. In the househald
of our friends we often encounter
our most dangerous foes.
Our out and out enemies can do
us but little harm, compared with
that which our friends MAY do us.
The world discredits what is said
and done against us by those who
are known to be our enemies. It is
expected that they will try and
harm us. Besides, being warned
against them, we are on our guard.
Who makes a man a drunkard?
Xot his enemies, but those who are
popularly termed his friends. It is
not his enemy but his friend (?)
who slaps him on the back and
says. "I know where we can get
some real pre-war good 6tuff; come
cn and have another drink, one
more will not do you any harm;
come on and be a good sport for
Beware of your friends. How
ever good their intentions may be,
they may unwittingly do you harm
