THE

LAW OF KINDNESS.

“ As from the bosom of her mystic fountains,

Nile's sacred water windeth to the main, Flooding each vale embosomed ’mong the mountains,

From far Alata's fields to Egypt's plain : So from the bosom of the Fount of Love,

A golden stream of sympathy is gushing; And winding, first thro' intellect above,

Then thro' each vale of mortal mind is rushing; Sweeping the heart of iceberg and of stone,

Purging humanity of every blindness,
Melting all spirits earthly into one,
And leaving holiness and joy—'tis KINDNESS."

D. K. LEE.
