Will you permit a long time friend of Mr. Wines to add a few words to your excellent editorial notice of him of last week ? , Mr. Wines was a gentleman at heart, which is very different from being a gentleman on the surface only. Not only his conscious wishes, but his very instincts were kind, helpful to others, obliging, humane, sympathizing. He r acted out the golden rule constsntlv and unflaggingly, and at the same time he carried out the scriptural injunction of not letting hia left hand know what his right was doing. If we could have a mass meeting of all those to whom MrWJnes had done some real favor, not of kindness simply, but some marked benefit, I tbink that it would not only be a large one, but that those present would be very much surprised at the others they found there. Perhaps no . one would be more surprised than those who thought they knew him best. It was not so much that he was secretive about hiskindnesses, as that they were to him like the song to the bird, so natural that they were spontaneous, and he gave them no thought himself. He was a very active man, constantly bestirring himself in his business, or . for his inends.or in the pursuit ofsome good work. His sympalhies were always alive to anything that would benefit others or the community, and when mything had his sympathy it had also ïot only his financial assistance, but lis active co-operation. He would give 'or public objects, not only money, but thought and work. He was always a mainstay and very active member of the chureh. lts business affairs, lts bunday school work; anvthing about it in which he could be of service, received always his active co-operation. It took many years of acquaintance to thoroughly appreciate Mr. Wines, but when his friends at last grasped the full meaning of his broad sympathy for all that was in favor of religión and good moráis, his generous, almost boundless, kindness to others, his untiring activity which, when not spent in his business, was spent to benefat others, and his sterling virtues, they feit for him a respect and affection which it bas been the lot of few men to cali out. ... I would like to give you some ïllustrations of what I know of Mr. Wines good deeds, but it would be somewhat l of a betrayal of confidence, so I will I refrain. 1 will not, however, refrain from sending you this note as an ïndiL catión of the .-egard I had foi -the man, ■ „.,,) tha ravertoncp. in wlÜCh I hold OÍS
