A BOY bathing in a river was in danger of being drowned. He
called out to a passing traveler for help, but instead of holding
out a helping hand, the man stood by unconcernedly, and scolded
the boy for his imprudence. “Oh, sir!” cried the youth, “pray
help me now and scold me afterwards.”

Counsel without help is useless.
