rrp HE Rev. John Lawrence aat at
hli atudy Uble, leaning on hU
elbow, his usually buay pen held
idly between hia finger. He gazed
far over the plain, a trancelike eiprea
alon in hia thoughtful eyes; be belleTed
that the time waa coming when those
plain would be peopled, and, with the
hopefulness which made hia mlsslon
ary life beautiful, he seemed to see
the church leading, inspiring and min
istering to these people. Already be
had vision of a school wherein his
own wife should be the ruling spirit;
visions of a hospital, a guild-house and
club-rooms, where these savages might
grow less savage. Even the fact that
thus far ouly one poor little wooden
church building was to be found iu
many miles did not in the least inter
fere with hi dreams.
How long he might have dreamed,
no one knows, but he was recalled by
a delicious voice calling In to him:
I am twenty-two Inches around the
waist, John, and my skirt length is
forty-lhree. You know you asked me
"Sure enough." he answered, with a
little start, taking up the tapeline
which lay conspicuously on bU desk.

Mr. Lawrence burst into laughter.
The idea of anything pretty in a
missionary box, John! Who ever beard
of it? It's against the nature of
thing. Perhaps ifs wicked, but I
have sometimes thought that they
made them as ugly as possible. Do
you remember the snuff-colored dress
ing Jacket with the black fringe?"
"Wasn't that pretty?" he queried. "I
always thought It was very elegant, ex
cept when the fringe dipped in the cof
fee." "You dear dreamer! You don't know
what is pretty. You don't see anything
but your beloved Sunday school and
night clashes and sick people. A rheu
matic old Indian woman is beautiful to
you if "
"If she is a Christian! Yes, I admit
It" he said, gently; "all of God's crea
tures are beautiful to me, and one of
them most beautiful,'' and again be
gave ber a loving caress and resumed
"Sheets, pillow cases, street suit for
my wife, clerical suit for self, over
coat I bate to ask for that, but it is
such a necessity in this bleak land."
He read once again the friendly let

make known all his needs, assuring
him that they would be supplied, so
far as possible, by a branch of the
These boxes, which bad so irked the
pride of many a missionary, never of

thought to self. His Divine Master bad
lived on alms, and his own horizon
was too rich, too broad, for any petty
egotism to create even a speck upon

we need, and they will supply us as
far as possible."
"Yes," she called, a little sarcas
tically, "please tell them I need very
much a pale blue cashmere gown;"
and then she smiled at the absurdity
of such a request from a missionary'
wife. "Imagine the consternation that
would create," she thougfht "If be
really would ask for such a thing."
She replaced the miniature with a
sigh. Was it a crime to love pretty
thing? And would she ever have
any again? Her trousseau was long
ago exhausted, and now she lived and
moved and bad her being In black

dear! but blessed afterthought!
wouldn't she rather be the wife of
John Lawrence, In black brilliHiitines
and brown surges, than anyissiy cise
in the world?
The president of St. Mary's Auxil
iary was rapping loudly for order. She
was reading a letter saying that the
Rev. John Lawrence would be deeply
grateful for a suit an overcoat etc.
It was when she came to the overcoat
that the confusion arose; for one lady
had a practically new overcoat which
her present coachman, being stout
could uot wear. It was exactly the
Kev. Mr. Lawrence's size, but being
a surtout she questioned whether it
would be the correct thing for clerical
wear. The entire auxiliary set itself
to argue this point when the president
"Ladles, we can discuss this matter
later. Let me finish reading this let
ter. "Where was I? 'Sheets, pillow
caes, table linen, and' what is this
'a pale blue cashmere gown" "
A pale blue cashmere gown! Had
she asked for ao automobile coat the
request could not have produced more
surprise. There was a deep silence.
Even the president found nothing to
say for some time.
"A little unusual." she finally said.
"Welt I never had a pale blue cash
mere gowu in my life," gasped some
"Pale blue! So perishable!" another
"And cashmere! So out of style!" a
"She must be some poor little coun
try soul," the secretary said.
"Well, whoever she is, she ought to
be reprimanded. The idea of such
worldllness In a missionary' wife!"
"He should have known better than
to have asked for it!"
"The Idea of our money going for a
pale blue cashmere gown!"
So the comments went around, till
everybody bad had her say; some of
them bad had two or three "says," and
they were seemingly gasping for
breath to say something even more se
vere, when a bombshell fell In their
"Why shouldn't she have a pale blue
cashmere gown? She Is probably a
young woman, and maybe has not a
single pretty thing! Ob, gracious!"
and the speaker grew so energetic that

helped with box after box iu this so
ciety, and never have I seen a really
pretty thing go into one of them ! They
are so deadly practical. How it will
wear, how it will wash, whether it will
show dirt I sympathize with this
woman away out there among those
Indians, dependent on us bard-hearted
things for the little she wants. God
knows," she added, even more earn
estly, "where they get the grace to sus

gown" her voice tremble a little "let
us give it to ber. Cashmere is cheap,
and just Imagine ber pleasure; and do
you know, I think a pretty gown would
have a cheerful effect on loth herself
and her husband. Perhaps it might
even convert a few more Indians!" Khe
sat down, a little embarrassed by the
feeling she bad shown.
"We might make ber a mother bub

one said, doubtfully. "Made up plain

"But it mustn't be a mother bub

we send it at all, let it be pretty. Let

room rapidly and approached the advo
cate of the blue gown.
"I will gladly help you with the
gown, and we will make It beautiful
as a dream."
How quickly the Idea became infec
tious! Everybody offered to do some
thing or to give something! It was al
most as delightful a dressiig a doll!
St Mary's Auxiliary had turned out
many a box. but never had anything
aroused such interest a this new bit
of work. It became a fad; with it
silken linings, iu dainty frills of lace.
It "fagoting" and exquisite accessor
le, the beautiful Empire gown lay
complete. The Auxiliary women who
were packing the box stopcd frequent
ly to admire and almost to care It.
"I bate to see It go." said the secre
tary. "It has done us more good than any
thing we ever did. What a lovely idea
It was!" the treasurer said. "I don't
begrudge the money at a!!."
"Let me fasten this In." Some one
Iwiit over the gown and tacked In a
little sachet of violet.
"And I must slip this handkerchief
into It bosom;" another deftly tucked
an embroidered kerchief Into its folds.
"I have written this note to my dear
old friend, and have told her what a
pleasure this has leen;" and the note,
too, was pinned to the blue gown. Ami
so, with little final adjustment and
puts of admiration, the blue gown, soft
and rustling and enve!oed In white
tissue paper, was put into its Individ

practical things, to the laud of the
Indians and the plains.
Mr. I-awreuce came
what discouraged from
school one afternoon, to find ber house
in great disorder. Everything was
covered with clothes it seemed. Th
lox had come, and ber husband bad
lost no time in opening It. The street
suit for which she bad asked confront
ed her from the bookcase; dark, neat
and serviceable. She examined It with
enthusiasm. "They were so good,
weren't they, John?"
"Good! My dear, the Auxiliary Is al
ways good. Now, don't say anything
about your brown sack with the black
fringe! The Auxiliary well, you know
what I think of it! See! They have
sent us everything, even to the last
thing on the list your blue cashmere
gown!" He handed her the box.
"My pale blue cashmere gown! John
Lawrence! You didn't really write
that did you? Oh, what must they
have thought?" She sank into a chair,
pale and distressed.
"I think Uie dress tells what they
thought" He lifted the delicate gar
ment as If it were a baby.
"Silk! Lace! Perfume! A train!

I can't help crying! I didn't mean it.

VALUE OF OLD MEN.

in a Young Man's Country.
America is the young man's country,
we are told, because so many of the
conspicuous figures amongst us are
young men. The tiling Is said conven
tionally, as if there were some moral
virtue in being young: as if, too, the
greatest tragedy In American history
was not the death some forty years ago
of half a million men In the prime of
life, which deprived our generation
of It wisest counselors. Experience 1
the 011I7 school which gives a degree
honored of all men, and a man of
tbree-score, with the rigor of life still
in him, should be the most useful citi
zen of a community.

EXPENSE8 OF A PRINCE.
What Jt Coats Britain' Hoyal Heir to
The popular Idea about a royal
prince Is that be Is un exalted person
ige, with a magnificeut Income, says
Hour Glass. There Is, however, an
other asect of the case, concerning
pvhlcb many people are In Ignorance,
hamely, the enormous expenditure In-
artably connected with a princely
abllshmeut. The following authentic
letalls as to what It costs the Prince
if Wales to live may, therefore, prove
Instructive to the general reader. It Is
hot generally known that there are
tbout eighty servants employed In the
rince' household, and the wages of
these people aggregate not less than
tlO a week. Out of this sum the
hoyal chef receive 2X) a year, the
butler a similar amount and two of
the stewards 150 apiece, in addition
to special perquisite. Tbeu there is
the cost of provisions, electric light
ing and other domestic expenses, which
Involve a further outlay of at least
.'100 a year. It Is also essential that
tils royal highness should keep a good
stable, and the maintenance of thirty
kiorses, carriages, grooms, coachmen
and other attendants will readily ac
count for another 300 of bis Income.
. During the Ixmdon season, also, the
f.lng's eldest son is naturally expected
0 give a certain number of bouse par
lies, and it need scarcely lie said that
these entertainments must be in every
way consistent with the regal position
of the distinguished host In addition
lo these parties, the present prince,
like his father, gives several royal
balls every year, the total cost of
which mean a further serious Inroad
In bis Income. Again, It Is ouly reason
able to expect that his royal highness
Mil l'C one of the best dressed gen
tlemen in the kingdom, aud this de
sirable qualification is only attained
by Judicious expenditure. For exam
ine, it may lie stated that the Prince
of Wales generally dons a new suit
(if clothes twice a month and a new
Hlk hat about the same period. He
liever wears a pair of bwt more than
half a dozen times, and these are of
superfine quality, at 2 guineas the pair,
lie rarely uses a pair of gloves for
juore than one occasion, and his hosiery
kind other clothing are sulliclently ver
satile and multitudinous in character

ability 1,000 a year would barely

ng. But even this estimate docs not
meet the cost of those naval and mili
tary uniforms which the prince lias to
liurchase In order to appear In bis va
rious official capacities in connection
With the British army and navy, am
for these splendid garments, some of
Khlch cost 100 each, at least another
500 a year must be added to the ex
penditure. Another Important Hem of expendi
ture Is that represented by gratuities
to servant when the prince and prin
cess become the temporary guests of
(other royal fsmllles, eltlier at home or
abroad. Take, for example, a visit
to the Csar of all the Itusslas, which,
spart from traveling expenses, would
mean at least 100 In roysl tips among
the countless servants of the Masco

foothold and maturing, they will grad

them from shifting, worthies lands In
to fertile fields. Mauy years of for
estry work n Europe has shown that
after the grasses have made a start
trees can tie successfully raised on
these erstwhile sand piles, which may
thus be made to yield a revenue.
