The golden sunlight of Juno rested
Invitingly on tho eross-stltch motto.
"God Bless Our Home," which huug
above the door of tho Lane's sitting
room. Attracted by the sunlight Mary
had been gazing at tho motto for
several minutes, thinking In her child
ish mind how typical It was of tho.
room Itself. ;
Mary was extremely fond of pretty
things. She worshipped beauty In ov
ery form, lavished affection on all liv
ing things and craved it in return. Yet,
paradoxical as It may seem, sjie was
the, child of stern, unsympathetic, rad
ical, matter-of-fact parents. Conse
quently, they hafl. never understood
her, and had regarded her as a Sort of
tin anomaly. They were sorely tried
one day when she cried herself to
sleep because they refused to get her
a dress with pink roses In it. They
tried in vain to crush this spirit of
worldllncss, us they termed It.
In this moment of meoltntlon, bitter
thoughts crowded into Mary's mind.
She reviewed the episode that was the
cause of her present punishment. The
night before, In tho hope of making
herself pretty, she had done up her
straight bangs in curl papers.
Joyfully she went to bed, dreamed
drcnimO of pretty faces surrounded
In the morning her mother, busy
about breakfast, did not notice the
curls, but after tho customary read
ing from tho IJIhle, her father leveled
his eyes straight on Mary and the
precise brown ringlets on her fore
head. With reddening cheeks she
heard him say, "Mary shall do thirty
examples In arithmetic and show them
to me before she goes to school, this
morning, as a punishment for lapsing
Moved by a spirit or rebellion, aim
determined not to do them. She would,
decclvo hlin! '
She remembered that not long ago
she had undergone the self-same, pun
ishment and had saved the paper with
tho examples on It, and this she would
show to him. Furthermore, she would
read her book of fairy tales during the
time she was supposed to be doing the
The f.tory book was very dear to
Mary's heart, and with tender tlngers
she took It trom the drawer where she
had hidden It ; close beside If was a
candy box with pink roses on It, and
lifting the cover, she took out several
pieces of ribbon, then a bottle of per
fume. All were presents from her
friends, which she kept from her
mother's sight, knowing full well that
sho would call them worldly.
Dear. Innocent treasures I Mary
prized them above all else la tho
Urged on by u rebellious feeling,
she decided not to go to school that
day. Instead, she would sinnid the day
in the woods. She nlwnys took her

question her, she would He to them.
Yes, sho would lie and bo wicked !
So handing her father the bogus
arithmetic paper, she took her lunch
nnd started. The clear morning air
tilled her with an exquisite feeling of
Always hedged In by facts, she now
let her Imagination run riot. Lying
there In the cool, sweet grass, she
caught sight of an old boat, and her
fanciful mind Immediately connected
It with "Tho Lady of Shalott," which
she had recently read at school. She
suddenly decided to play that she was
the "Lady of Shalott," and with a pen
cil from her school bux,roughly traced
tho words "The Lady of Shalott" on
the bow. Sho pushed off from the
shore and, lying In the bottom of the
boat, she sang softly to herself, as did
tho lidy of the poem and "HoiOo dnw
A roTigli, grating sound came to
Mary's curs, and she sat bolt upright
to see what was the matter. The boat
, had run against some rocks, which had
punctured a hole In tho bottom, and It
was rapidly filling with wnter. Mary
I called lustily for help, and then every-
I thing went black before her.
The next thing sho knew she was In
J a room where everything was white;
flowers nodded to her from a table be
side the bed, and in the distance she
heard soft music. A blond young pr-
' son all dressed in white entered tho
' room, brushed her hand over Mary's
brow, patted her check and vanished.
Immediately Mary's fertile brain told
. her that she was In heaven nnd tho
blond young person was an angel.
Then she heard familiar voices her
father's and mother's 1 They were say
ing something about "rescued from
drowning;" nnd then It all camo back
to Mary. Hut somehow things were
changed. First her mother would kiss
her, and then her father, and they
caressed her and patted her cheeks,
and her mother whispered that she was
going to buy her the dress with the
pink roses in It that she wanted. And
her father suggested that they tlx her
bedroom at home like this one which
belonged to the parson's wife. And'
they brought her .lowers and fruit and
I a book of fairy tales !
When they left Mary realized that
I she had broken the "iron bars which
had bound the hearts of her father and
mother. And lo ! Inside she found sun
shine, happiness and love such as she
had never Imagined oven in her wild

to carry out this program and that It
will do so nnd on this basis It will re
ceive the support of tho American
farmers who aro generous and who are
able to give."

your organization in Its efforts to se
cure contrbutlons of grain for tho re
lief of the starving of the Near East
and to give my hearty endorsement
to your plnn as It has been presented
