LITTLE THINGS. A liitlo word, said pleasantly in pas sing, may brighten up .some txireworn I fellow's *iay; ii littlo sneer, a littlo hit tor sussing, may change his skies from gold to sombre gray, A littlo praise may send foot blithely tripping, that otherwise would drag tho long day through ; a littlo help, wliou soino poor I cuss is slipping, may start him right I and bring success in view. A littlo | roar when vicious things are browing! may spoil the brew, and oil up Virtm-'.s ; wings; a littlo kiok when statesmen are purpling false god?, may bring thorn 'round to bettor things. A littlo senso may make us seem a fountain of wis dom if you keep your tongue on straight : a littlo dobt may .soon become I a mountain, and rnish you down be- j noath its galling weight. Tin* little things make life a joy or nuisance; ii you ignore this fact, when you aro gray, you'll realise you were a blooming goo so since vmi lot the he.-,t of all things get awny. - Walt Muson.
