THE PASTOR’S STUDY.
The Spirit of Christ Was Still In
All the evening Esther Doane’s
heart had been in a tumult; she did
not want anything to do with
Christianity. The man who .had
robbed her of her little inheritance,
and who had brought upon her
the hard years that had left her so
bitter, had been a church member.
Since that treachery had happened
Esther had refused to enter a
church. She did not know now
why she had Anally agreed to go
with Alice Lane to the Lowell’s on
Wednesday evening. Yes, she
did know, too. It was because she
was so desperately lonely, and be
cause Alice had told her that on
Wednesday evenings there was
never any “religion" at the par
Alice had told the truth as she
understood it. At the first glance
Esther knew that she need not fear
any “preaching": the Lowells
simply included her in their beau
tiful friendliness. There were
games and singing and stories and
talk before the open fire, which
was the best of all, and finally there
were simple refreshments, which
everyone helped to pass.
Suddenly there came a gust of
rain against the windows. Esther
looked up in dismay; she had just
recovered from the influenza, and
she had brought neither overshoes
nor umbrella. As if the minister
had read her thought, he looked
across at her.
"How tar have you to go, Miss
Doane?" he asked.
“Only half a dozen blocks,”
Esther replied quickly. "It’s
But the minister’s glance had
already met his wife's. “We’ll
have tu keep this young lady for
the night, Amy. We cannot let
her go in such a down-pour.”
“Oh, I couldn’t think of troub-
Ung you,” Esther protested hastily.
But both the minister and his wife
brushed her protests aside.
"You’re not strong yet; anyone
could see that,” said Mrs. Lowell.
We are going to keep some oth
ers, too. Do you think you could
put up with the couch in the study?
It’s really more comfortable than
So an hour later the girl found
herself alone in the study.
She fell distressed, for a chance
word she had overheard told her
that the minister himself was going
to sleep in the trunk room, Over
head she heard a child’s cry and
then Mrs. Lowell’s voice; evident
ly she was sleeping with the chil
dren. Esther looked curiously
round the study. It was a small
room, the walls of which were
lined wiili books on homemade
shelves. It contained the simplest
furniture, and there were no pic
tures ixcept the photographs
on the iiuiiisicr’s desk. There
was nothing in the room (o account
for it, absolutely nothing; yet it
was as if the whole room were en
folding her in an exquisite peace.
And suddenly—she could not tell
how—the girl knew the reason.
It was long before she .slept, but
when she did the struggle of years
was over. The spirit of Christ
was still ill ilie world. She ac
knowledged it at last. And with
the knowleUgnient came peace,
Weeks afterwards, coming back
into the church she had so long
deserted, she told the minister, "It
was your study; 1 felt the prayer
there 1 couldn't resist any longer.”
WHERE IS TMY STINO?
Aunt Sallie was paying a visit to
the family for the first time in years
and had told ihem how cute she
thought little Willie was In simi
lar complimentary vein, the family
told her just how much Willie re
sembled her. But the edge was
taken out of the compliment when
all of them heard Willie say, as he
went out into the dark hall on Ms
way to bed:
Go on, grab me, ol’ bogey man.
1 don’t care. They say I look just
like Aunt Sallie.
BETTER than NOTHINQ.
“What will .Miss Primleigh do
now that she has no occasion to
struggle for women’s rights?”
I imagine now she will begin
going after women’s lefts.”
“Lefts? What do you mean?"

THE SWEETEST DREillli
BY FRANK L. STANTON .
Thinkin’of you! ♦ * * * That’s the way
Of this life, from day to day;
Thinkin’ of the tone and touch
That I love, sweetheart, so much!
If the skies are blue or gray,
Thinkin’ of you every day!
Thinkin’ of you, when I see
God’s white mornin’ over me;
When I say: "His skies are bright;
But 1 miss her eyes of light!"
Thinkin’ of you when the west
Whispers dreams that bring no rest!
Dreamin’of you! * * * * Land, or sea.
You’re the sweetest dream to me;
Even when woods and waters seem
Singin’ to me in a dream!
Still feel your presence near—
Dreamin’—dreamin’ of you, dear!
Dreamin’ of you as the way
Glooms towards that last sad day
When the weary heart shall rest,
In the faith of “God knows bestl”
When with soul, of Love kissed white.
Love shall whisper: “Love, good-night!”
He wonders why so many men
Have friends when he has none;
He wonders why, when folks are
He never shares the fun.
He feels left out, and doesn't know
That he’s to blame the while.
The reason is not so far to seek—
It hurts his face to smile !
He has a lot of enemies
He never meant to make;
He never stoops to trifles done
For simple friendship’s sake.
He doesn’t think small courtesies
Are really worth the while.
And when he does a generous thing
It hurts his face to smile !
The simple little things of like
That pleasure you and me.
He does not care to cultivate,
Too dignified is he!
He ran a race for office once
And lost by many a smile,
And never knew the reason was
It hurt his face to smile !
No little children ever dare
To climb upon his knee.
No strange dog ever leaps at him
With tail a-wag with glee.
Nobody ever tells him jokes.
He’s lonely all the while;
And knows not what he’s missed
It hurts his face to smile !
