How ;iiey fought at the out-post thoujls lalls

Ardilla Newbre, eldest daughter of

The year. previous, Mr. Newbre had

learning this merely through vague

to her that what she paw with the

Anticipating her visit, this little
country girl, all the sweet spring.sum

she had ever seen.
"I feel too mean," she overheard Au

"Thi3 is ma's," aaid Ardilla, hold

sophisticated eyes a perfectly regal
breakfast-cap. "We can't any of us
make these sort of things, and I assure
you it costs to buy tlicin.

this year," pouted Augusta; "and I

"I was not able to see any special

said Pleasant, writing to her

"In the ten days that have passed
since my arrival, I have not enjoyed
anything so much as a visit to Miss

Our call on this lady was so different
from everything c'.sr ,and seemed sonic
how so like a bit of home-lite, it took
me by the heart, as my dear father
Miss Naomi was formerly a nursery
governess iu Mr. Newbre's family, arul
had so engaged the affections of the
children, that long after they got be
yontl . her humble attainments, and
she had given place to one better Qual

-their hearts. Somehow she afterward
tailed in obtaining similar position,
and had gone throagh very bitter ex
periences in the effort to earn her own
living, as well as assist a feeble sister
with tour children and a drunken hus
band. At length came the severest
trial of all. Through some careless
ness at the place where she worked,
Miss Naomi met with an accident
which deprived Iter of the use of h-r
lower limb?. She was now confined
to her room in the fourth story of a
rickety old tenement, where, with a
little spasmodic sort of assistance, she
still managed to live, and to help her
sister do tlie same.
"Her manner was so like yours when
she opened her Bible, 1 could have
hugged her." So ran Pleasant' letter,
concluding her account of their visit

Our little country girl was no dunce
not to ke able to put two and two to

over the reatter.that the money wastetl
between these girls would have gone
far toward supplying that poor wo

Everybody, Boyce Dicker especial

windows. To insure a larger amount
of enjoyment, their arrangement mast
be a surprise to the occ-jpant of the
room, Pleasant add, and proceeded to
give the requisite instruction: "Take

Tho Bishop asked the attention to
tho alarming disregard cf religious
thought among business men. The
cause host set forth by the variance in
the male ami female nex.
Woman is more religious than man,
mothers are more faithful than fath
ers. Moral iniluences flow rather frm
the mother than the father.
The speaker spoke of the rrfiaifig in
fluences of education. Better 6p.no
theru all than the sacred influence of
home. Sliders, less difficult to influ
ence than brothers, daughters less thaif

observed In every age. Why is itt is a
question for evt.ry thinking man. No

which man has not committed.
The same depths of corruption cas
be reached, and the same methods of
salvation and redemption are imcefiia--ry
for each-Adam's son or Eve's daugh
ter. The condition of lifo in eithar eox
is essentially different. Man as a rule
has a severer moral conflict than wik
man and for this reason only is wo
man's religious life easier. Man tha-'

man socks retirement.
