important member of human society has hisplace and his part to do, without the faith-ful doing of which there will be a blank inthe great world's work.We need not envy any other's capacity forusefulness. It may be more brilliant thanours, may seem greater, of a higher grade.Its influence may reach out more widely.

Arch-bishop Trench's lines are suggestive :Thou earnest not to thy place by accident ;It is the very place God meant for thee ;And shouldst thou there small scope for actionsee.Do not for this give room for discontent ;Nor let the time thou owest to God be spentIn idly dreaming how thou mightest be,In what concerns thy spiritual life, more freeFrom outward hindrance or impediment :For presently this hindrance thou shalt findThat without which all goodness were a task So slight that virtue never could grow strong.
