The wustora sky was glorioun that
Ironing; purple and gold and crituson
and yet low, all mingled their colors to
make a glorious sunset. And the crim
son and purple and gold rays stooped and
kissed the trembling grass and tho sbin>
ing blue bells, and touched each ripplo
in tho tiny stream till Aladdin's l*alace
was Dot more beauteous. And over it
ull (iod east a mantle of holy calm, Uko
a strain of silent music nut of one of His
heavenly songs, nod the very bretze
hushed its sighing and died awuy as if
afraid to breathe atul spoil Ilts work.
The bees busy hum was over for tho
day and the last bird gave one frightened
twitter, and (hen, as if afraid to be alone
spread his wings and sought a hiding
place in a golden furz) bush; and (he
rabbits and tiny field mice curled in their
nests and slept, and all things were full
And many a lover turned his eyes for
a moment at his sweetheart’s whii^per to
“look at the sky,” and gazed and gazed
—till he almost forgot (he one ho loved
was by his Kido; and to many a sorrow
bound Iw’art (he sight of God’s finger
touching all things with glory, brought
calm and peace, as it spoke to them of a
land of rest and joy.
Rut there was little of peace and joy
to bo read there by little KUzabetb. Her
mother dying, hud left her an unwelcome
burden to the parish. “Only a (Jypwy
child” people called her; so there was
nothing but drudgery and blows and
blows and beggary and glances which
spoke of anything but love of peace.
So that glorious sky told of no love
she went on her evening errand, for .she
didn't know what it meant. But she toiled
wearily down the grassy path toward tho
sp/ing, where every tiny green blade
.“prang up to greet the rosy light, and
stood erect, as if to try and SCO more of
the we.stcrn glory than its fellows. And
then Elizabeth sat down (o rest.
It was the only time in the day when
she could rest without the terror ofboin;
disturbed by angry scoldings or worse—
but she diired not slay very long—but
to night she was worn out from much
work and little to cat. So sho sat her
down and rested her thin face in her
thin little hand, and put her sharp cl
bov, which peered blue and bare through
her lorn sleeve, on the sunset green turf
And then she gazed and gazed across
tho grass and the little wood and the tiny
rippling stream, away and away to the
bars of glory in the sky.
And the little blades of grass eaeh
wept a tiny drop of dew as they looked
at hec wasted young face and her tired
expre.Hsion. And as she giizid those
wonderful bars of light iJoemed changed,
so that she forgot her errand and her
mistress. And if you had passed by
then you would have seen a look in her
eyes liko that in the eyes of one who sees
what is is too beautiful to express. For
the crimson and gold seemed like the
gateway of a lovely palace—all of scarlet
and blue and purple—and yet of none of
these. And presently tho great gate
swung open as the colors changed,
and* One in white camo and stood
in the open gateway, and lie had a
crown of shining gold—and ho stretch
ed out His hand and took hers, and
Klizubeth went with him gladly.
And the bars of crimson and gold
changed, deeper and deeper, till at last
they faded away as uir things fair heie
fade—and the quiet night came in their
place, and tho blinking stars like angels’
eyes looked down on tho sleeping gra.ss
and the little wood and the village too—
and (hey blinked and blinked again as
they saw themselves io tho tiny streamlet.
But Klizibetb’s eyes still look on and
on into tho dark, clear nii'bt, (ill at length
the crimson and gold came baek, but not
in the west; and the stars, tired of blink-
tog, shut their e^ies w the round faced
sun craned his head up out of
the cast and cuuibed his goldcQ lucks
till they streamed over hill and dale» and
over tho little hill behind the stream, and
fell on tbe place where Klizibeth hiy
last night. Bat she was not there. She
bad gone through the golden gate, and
all that tho sun found there was her rags
and pale and thin, worn limbs which she
bad carried so bravely until sho laid
them down and rested for evermore.
And thoD by and by people gatht^red
round her form as people do, whispoiing
in bushed, solemn toops, as if not to wuke
her. But they need not have feared, for
it would need the voice of a greater One
to do that.
And tl^cy told KHzabeth's miatrctis
that Elisabeth was “4^4/’ for yon see
they did Qot know how fHiiabeth hud
gone in through those gates and left
death and drudgery behind forever.
“Say, Polly, this here 'icotrio light
ain’t the kind that we did our courtin'

they came in the way,

Mrs. Furrow saw tho cavalry scurry
away from their lurking place under the
river bank and disappear in tho wood«!,

by panting and overworked horses, trun

“Speaking of practical jokes,” said a
drummer at one of the hotels the other
night, “I was the victim of one of the
most embarrassing 1 liave heard of for u
long time. It was during my first trip
south, and not being familiar with the
people in this part of the country I
thouglit I hud found a really sociable
place when three young ‘swells' of the
town with whom I had been talking the
evening before asked me to go with them
to a dance that was to be given at a
female seminary a few miles from this
city. I had l»een away from home for
some time, and not having had the
pleasure of being in tho company ot
young ladies I was fairly delighted at
th«' idea of spending a pleasant evening.
“I told them 1 would bo plea.sed to
go, and after hurried preparation we
started. The young men lauj'hed at tho
idea of my paying anything toward the
carriage hire, and I felt that I had never
been io the company of a tuore hospita
ble set of men.
“When we arrived at the place, the
diinee had already begun. We left the
eaniuge in care of a negro man and en
tered the ballroom. Of course I felt very
strange at first among so may strangers*
but my companions seemed to feel quite
at home and ioiiistcd that I should meet
some of the young women at once. One
of the young men took me by the arm
and led me across the room to where
there sat a young woman who was rather
pretty and had an extremely neat ap-
“After receiving an introduction to
her I sat down and started a conversa
tion. Soon she was talking at an aston.
ishingiy rapid rate. I became rather
interested in the girl, but was very much
surprised to learn that she was the
twentieth daughter of a wealthy farmer.
At last she began to talk and laugh .«o
loudly that I began to feel a little
embarrassed and asked her if she did not
want to dance. She was on her feet in
an instant, and we had danced a few
steps when .«hc suddenly yelled out at the
top of her voice: ‘Don’t! Don’t! Oh, don't
hold mo so tight! I am full of dynu^
mite.’ And she uttered a yell that madt
the cold chills run up and down my
“I turned her loose in an instant and
s'.ood simply horrified. I feitlike swear
ing when tho other people in tho room
only laughed s\nd went on dancing. I
did not know what to do. I knew I
had doue nothing I should not havo
done, intentionally at least, but I started
up to her with an apolopy, when one of
my companions came up with a young
woman on his arm. lie gave me an
introduction to her and asked me if I
would not dance the next set with
her. I did not feel like dancing a bit^
but there was no way of getting out of
it, so I told him I would. While we
were sitting down waiting for the next
dance .she told me she had been married
I f times and had 1,000 children at
home. I thought she was just trying to
joke mo and asked her where she lived-
She said she lived in heaven. I knew
something was wrong with her, and I
made up my mind right there that I
would not dance with her. I asked her
to excuse me a moment, and without
waiting for a reply rushed ac^ro.ss the
room toward the door. X thought to
my.self (hat if I onee got on the outside
I Would never attend another 'swell
dance’ in Kentucky.
“I had got within a few feet of the
door when an old woman ran up and
(brew her arms around my neck. She
yelled out that I was her lost son, who
ran away from home *IOU yearn ago,
when I was a mere child. I tried to
tear myself away from the woman, and
she fainted at my feet. I made a dart
for the dour, and when I reached the
threshold I looked back and saw several
persona carrying her ofl‘(he floor. I was
dazed. I expected to be arres(ed every
moment. I saw a man outside and asked
him if there was not a train leaving that
place soon. Uc said there would be one
going to Louisville in about an hour,
and I concluded to wait around (he lit
tle station until it was ready to leave. I
do not remember to have ever heard a
more welcome sound than the whistle of
that train, ofter spending an hour in
silent misery. I reached my hotel in
this city shortly after midnight, but
could not sleep. I had learned on (he
train that I had been to an insane
