The forline of brotherhood la necessart
l> as rsmote from a patronising spirit on
the one hand, a* from a spirit of envy
end malice on the other. The best work
for our upllftlna must la* hmc by oui
selver. ami yet with brotherly klrak)**as
for our nriahlair In such work, and
therefore. In the kind of work .tone by
the Young Men's <'arts'tan Associations,
we all eland on the selforcspecting haais
of mutual benefit sal commaai effort. All
of ue who take |rt In any such work
In whatever measure, both receive ami
•eaifer benefits. This Is true of the found
er amt giver, and It la no less true it
every man who takes advantage of what
the founder ami ttlver have done. This
* r.ahermssi makes us nil realise now
much we hove In common, and how tnueh
we can do when we work In common. I
doubt If It Is possible to overestimate iho
gissl .lone by the mere fact of assorts,
that with a common Intereal, and for A
..annual end, and when the common In
i' test Is high on.l the .a.mmnn end pecu
liarly worthy, the g.sst done la of ooures,
many times Increased.
There are, of course, a thousand differ
ent ways In wrhlch the work can bo dona,
and each man must choose as his tasi.-a
and his powers bid him. If he la to do tha
best of which he Is capable, ftabr all iho
kinds of work must be curried along on
certain definite line* If good la to mane.
Ail the work must be attempted us on tha
whole this Young Men's Christian Asso
ciation work has licen done; that la. In a
spirit of good will towards all ami not
of hatred towards some; In a spirit In
which to broad charity for mankind Micro
Is added a keen ami healthy sanity of
mind. We must retain our selfrrsp.-.;*
each sml all of ue. and we must I-*warn
alike of mushy sentimentality and of
envy and hatred.
There la degradation to us If we feel
envy and malice an.l hatred of one'*
neighbor, for any cause, and If we envy
him merely herons* of his riche*, we show
we have ourselves low Ideals. Money la
a good thing It ts a foolish .iff.—t itton
In deny It it.it it Is not the only gno4
thing, and after a certain amount he*
been amasessl It ceases to be the chief
even of material good things It Is fop
better, for Instance, to do wrll'g I,lt of
work which Is well-worth ‘king. I do
not care whether this work Is that of an
engineer on a great railroad or rspf iln of
a fishing lata*, or foreman In a factory
or mnchln.* shop, or section ho**. or di
vision chief, or assistant astronomer In
an observatory, or a acrend lieutenant
somewhere In China or the Philippines—
each man of these' hoe an Important
piece of work and If he I* really (ntcraate.)
In It. and ha* the right stuff in him, he

Is doing ami too Intent on doing It well,

From the days when the chosen people
received the decalogue, to our own. enry
ami malice have been recognised ns evils,
and woe to those who appeal to them.
To hr* ak the Ten'h Mommamtment 1* no

not only a dangerous, but also a mrnn
Vice, for M I* always a confession of In
