Father Graham was an old-fashioned gentleman beloved by everyone, and his influence in the little town was great, so good and active was he.


A young man of the village had been badly insulted, and came to Father Graham full of angry indignation, declaring that he was going at once to demand an apology.


“My dear boy,” Father Graham said, “take a word of advice from an old man who loves peace. An insult is like mud; it will brush off much better when it is dry. Wait a little, till he and you are booth cool, and the thing is easily mended. If you go now, it will be only a quarrel.”


It is pleasant to be able to add that the young man took his advice, and before the next day was done the insulting person came to beg forgiveness.—Standard, Signs of the Times, September 2, 1897.
