were made for each place, hut when
Virginia came over to the side < f

The Command to love.
You are not commanded simply to
love your neighbor. There isa very
important qualification attached
thereto, and, with it, there comes in
to play the grim humor that lights
up the pages of Scripture; and be
sure the uttermost depths are sound-
ed. The command is a large and
healthy invitation to self-knowledge,
the necessity of which has been in
sisted on by the sages and prophets
of all the tribes of men since experi
ence came out of the underbrush,
full of wounds and bruises, in search
of a full meal and a soft pallet.
The behest is simply to love your
neighbors as you love yourself, and.
the qualification is such as to fit
iv- ry case; for wLm mu. look frank
ly into tin 1 < • pll.s < f your own
heart —into the dark nom, as it
were, where your native thoughts
and desire .-.otic at. I rage, and!
•atch a glimpse, h >wv. r fleeting,
of the lair of the least, you will
have to acquire a strange taste for
what is alto. -:t wholly bad if you
fall in love with the things you
find there. Let ho thin scum (1
piety, howev' r nod it may lie, inter
fere with the thoroughness of this
self-examination; let no veneer of
culture and refinement come be
tween your vision and the thing
you really are; and when you have
seen all there is to be seen, and
learned a great deal you never
knew lief ore, you will he compelled
to admit that your neighbor must
indeed be a monster if you cannot
Live him as you love yourself. —
