P. O. Box 133, Trenton, N. J.

There are some persons who feel quite powerless to help on the cause of reform or to improve the moral character of a single individual, because they have no gift for influencing men by direct appeal. They have perhaps tried and failed, and so, although they would like to do some good in the world, they are hopeless of any success. Let such take courage as they remember how many indirect yet most effectual methods there are of accomplishing this end. Let them look over the multitudes of civilizing agencies that are silently working in the interests of morality, and attach themselves to such as most heartily engage their interest. Every intelligent individual must be in sympathy with some of them; and it is just there that his services are needed and will be most valuable. Nor let him make the mistake of supposing that he is thus working upon a lower or in

ferior plane. It is in works of benevolence and reform, just as in all other kinds of work,-that which a man can do best is the very best thing for him to do. So, if one man is interested in sanitary schemes and another in evening schools, if one is anxious for free libraries and another for free parks, if one can help to secure good roads and clean streets and another can aid in protecting children or dumb animals from ill-treatment, let each be assured that in such exertions he is doing his share in promoting morality and in elevating character as surely and as effectually as those whose peculiar province it is to teach or to preach, to admonish or to advise.

"Who does the best his circumstance allows, Does well, acts nobly; angels could no more."
