It is More than Mere Wise cracking to say that a Busy body can never be a business body. In other words it one spends All of his time attending to other people s Busi Ness it is certain he will have no time for his own business. And yet almost every Day we find those who yield to this Baleful urge to the great Hurt of others and serious Detri ment to themselves. There can be no justification for this nose poking Tongue wagging Back biting habit which seems to possess some individuals. At the same time there May be several explanations. There is a Peculiar egotism about some per sons which makes them love the limelight. They Are foolish enough to feel flattered when human hyenas lick up the putrid bits of gossip that spew out of their corrupt imaginations. They deceive themselves into believing they Are fountains of information when in fact they Are Only reek ing cesspools of misinformation falsehood and worse. They crave the reputation of being important but do not know that slander and falsehood have no importance. They want to be big when they Haven t Learned that their kind of bigness is merely the bloat that comes with the processes of decay. The gossip overwork his Mouth and lets his brain go to seed. He discounts your character because he in t sure of his own. So far As the faults in his own life Are concerned he suffers from a congenital and convenient blindness. He is anxious to make your bed but forgets that he has one at Home. Rumor is More deadly than rifles and rum. The same letters that spell sneak spell and for a Good reason. The Tongue of a Tattler is More dangerous than the Teeth of a dog. The gossip is yellow acts yellow talks yellow because he has a jaundiced soul. A tale bearing Tongue bears no relation to an honest heart. As we said some years ago the gossip is an Assassin reputation a Delver in the dirt a betrayer of Trust a traitor to Friendship a peddle of Poison a prying Pidd Lirtz Rattler about things that do not concern him. He is a must throw my meddler who Mars moral Beauty Breaks hearts destroys Homes grieves souls and damns his Little he if such persons could Ever build a town it would be a place of confusion strife turmoil and unhappy sort of two by four hades in keeping with their size. No real person wants to belong to this has bigger things to do. Clubs display vim and vigor scraps from a diary by Muriel Ramsay clock at went the faithful alarm seven o clock.
