A GOOD SPORT
The good sport is the man who
not only grins and hears defeat,
hut also endures a triumph with
out too much grinning. He is
tho fellow who is always consid-
erate of I he other fellow’s feelings
and is always ready and willing
to lend a helping hand to a less
fortunate brother. He is the
fellow who wonbl scorn to take
advantage of nip (lianee unfairly
presented to him. He is frank
find above board in nil things,
mid does not try to shift the blame
where it does not belong. When
at work ho puts Ids best into his
work and when at play ho always
pla.vs fairly. He cun always be
depended upon to do what is set
before bim to the host of his
ability. In other words, a good
spurt is tin* kind of follow every
.voting man should like to he, and
is surely a goal worth striving
