few months has been in. spite of two
things which stand in the way of prog-

the result of which has been to inflate

deficit in the government revenues. The.
deficit for the corrent fiscal vivar to date,

- If you hae a friend worth Yoving,
Love hom. Yes, and let him know
That vou love him ere life's evening
inge Lis brow with sunset glow.
Why should good words ne'er be said
Of a frivnd till he is dead?
If you see the hot tears falling
Froin a brother's weeping eyes,
Share them and by kindly sharing
Own your kinship with the skies.
Why should any one be glad
When a brother's heart is sad®
I? your work is made more easy
Ry a friendly, helping hard,
Say so. Speak out hravely and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land.
Shoull a brother workman dear
Falter for a word of cheer?
Scatter thus your seals of kindness,
All enmehing, as you go.
Leave th m. Trust the Harvest Giver,
He viill make sach seed to grow
Sa until its happy end
Your life shall never lack a friend.
