"I will never marry, never," said
William Blake to his father, a patient,
weary-lookiug old man, with thin gray
hair streaking across his bowed head.
He answered, reflectively "Well, I think
you're right;, there are men that can
manage women, but your mother baa been
too much for me."
"It eeems half selfish in me to go off
si leave you alone with her ; bat what i
can I do, with work that wants planning,
and that continued scolding in one s
"it's tne erying nts mat master me,
though," said Mr. Blake, "when she sits
sniff-sniffing into her apron ; looking at
me that reproached ful, till I m half brought
to believe that I have committed murder,
or something in my sleep.
"I sometimes think, do yon know,
father, that in those times it is that she is

"Its an awfully unpleasant, unfair
kind of penitence, then ; but I don't know ;
she's been buzzing in my ears so long,
that I get fairly bothered sometimes, and
don't feel clear about anything.
"I'll tell you what you must do when
she gets past bearing ; just come off to
me ; it wou't be far, you know."
So I will, my boy ; so I will."
Accordingly the next morning, when
scolding, for he could not be sure that he
really wanted to forget this.

The haunting voice became a presence,
all too soon. As Will came home she
met him in the passage ; a little, swift
gliding figure, with soft dark eyes set in a
fair face. "Not a bit like mother," he
thought, with a curious feeling of satis
faction : but as he passed, he saw that
her eyes Were humid with fear and grief.

Mrs. Blake began the day with prophetic

indications of being what she called "up

sented Will's removal and "setting np for
himself ;" but then, as Mr. Blake remark

was before," so he departed in compara
Will's room was a poor little place.
He was not earning much as yet, and he
said, "anything does for oneaelf,', with a
desolate air that somewhat contradicted
his philosophy of loneliness ; still, his
work improved wonderfully, and in that
way he was always happy. Will was a
designer f moldings.
Mr. Blake found him busily stitching
on an old coat.
"Turned tailor, Will ?" he asked.
" 'Tisu't work enough for a tailor, and
I am fraid my bungling would not pass
for one, either. I tried glue, but some-,
how it wouldn't answer, and one must
keep one's self decent looking. I am go

"Women is of some use a'rter all, if
they wasn't such unreasonable creatures,"
said the father, with an involuntary glance
at the table, which looked rather like the
enough. Willie was very ill.
Bravely the little fellow struggled, but
the foe was too strong for him.

All at once, for the first time in his little
life, Willie wanted nothing; not even
his sister. She went about her necessary
work with an oppressive, bewildered sense
of leisure upon her. And Will if the
joyous voice alone had distracted him so,
bow conld he work now? now that it
recalled the meek, desolate face of the
mourner ; now that the cry had changed
into such a pitiful, beseeching "Willie !

Every word that falls from tbe lips of
mothers and sisters especially should be
pure and concise and simple, not pearls
such as fall from the lips of a princess,
but sweet, good words, that little children
can gather without fears of toil, or after
shame or blame, or any regrets to pain
through all their life.
Children should be taught the frequent

By and by it seemed that the culprit
was hunted up the stairs home again ; a
merry hunt, with much laughing on both
sides, and, as they passed Will's door, a
quieter "Willie, Willie 1"
Mr. Blake looked strangely reflective.

plicity, "he was so naught v, the darling ;
I never could have him out of my thoughts

Alice herself, had this kind of naughti
ness for Will, and now, living in her room,
he seemed to be encompassed by her
presence ; his tools and work felt rongh
and coarse amidst the little dainty ar
rangements that marked a womanly hand.
'If it hadu't been for knowing mother,'
he mused, one evening, "I might fall in
love, I do believe ; as it is, I know bei

an intercourse that might, in some sharp
answer, bring Alice down from her pedes

justifying his bright dreams to himself by
saying, 'it is pleasant to 'make believe,'
as the children say.'
Alice, meanwhile, had found a cheering
employment in putting: Will's room
straight, at she called it. 'Such a pity
poor man, for bim to live in such a mud
die, and him so clever too.'
She found some torn drawings in the
littered fireplace, and carefully smoothed
