And by comparison, ingratitude,’
the antithesis .of (gratitude, is
noxious and unsightly. If Ofte
were shaping aspirations forthe
future, for what of life remains
to one, “May I be grateful to
those who deserve my gratitude”
Wbuld be a plea worthy to go
forth from the heart, the sincere
aspiration of the soul. ~
Into how many lives has in-
gratitude come as a cruel blow,
a rude awakening, a sad revala-
tlon, to wound generous natures,
to mar faith in Our kind.- And
■ bow sure and poignant is the
•tab of ingratitude, how it goes
straight to the heart and leaves

wondering, scarce wondering to

to refute it. “By that sin the

erf othera innocent, for they fall
-under the blight of distrust en-
gendered in- the hearts and minds
of the victims of ingratitude.
How often do the innocent suffer
by the wi*ong done by others.
We ought to cultivate gratitude
and put aside the temptation to
’’show ingratitude. Is there one
self-concious that in the' past,
not to be recalled, he or she by
lack of gratitude wounded the
heart of a friend who had the
right to and did expect fidelity
of friendship? If so it is never
too late to mend, and the time
was never more auspicious than
to form a noble purpose that
never again will the memory of
" love and unkindness unrequited
v come up, a wraith of memory, to
, reproach. When gratitude is
felt, when it finds cheerful ex
pression, the practice of kindred
virtues,will come readily. In
the man who bv nature is grate-
ful, even though he have weak-
nesses, or go wrong there will
ever be hope and promise. He
will hardly fall low. He who

oome course, must'needs make a

hears tbte alarm clock in. the
morning, she jumps out of bed,
makes three dabs at her hair,
buckles on her belt like a fire-
man fastens his harness on Dob-

bell, grabs her hat and starts on

afforded prompt relief, and now-
