Would you have the world be kind? Then be kind yourself! Hide not gifts of heart or mind On the future's shelf. Give what you can spare, and more, From to-day's most precious store. Would you meet with truth? Then trutll You must proffer first. Life hath need of grace and ruth, But, through best and worst, Truth s gold passes, clear and straight, And is always worth its weight 1 Would you honor gain? Be swift To give honor due; The deserving to uplift. Crown the crowned anew "With the laurels they have won In whatever worjc, well done. Would you be be|oved, Then lore! And be sure of Whatsoe'er life's Ss« ma 7 prove, All that was or is Will »»t make y«ur life more West Than Love's matehJees Itreliaeas. Ma4elina Bridjas.
