There was a half smile oa ber face.

Sho rose aad walked across th'e room to

in whilo Tom was there, and so she had not

surprised and a littlo hard as she read. And
yet it certainly contained only pleasant
news. Her old friend Helen Armstrong
wrote to say that slio was going to be mar

Miss Elizabeth instantly stripped the

Well, I certainly shouldn't have cxiected it

thought rose in her mind and confronted
her. that the reason, tho real reason, why
she had said "no" several times to Tom
Ilarbury was because he owned a shoo store.

Helen was arranging her hat, and did not

Elizabeth was silent It was only a few
minutes af ienvard that Helen said good-bye.
She threw ber aims around Elizabeth's neck
and kissed her again aud again. "Good

straight ut Elizabeth out of her wet grey

Somehow Elizabeth felt that she had re
ceived the charge to "Go and do likewise."
She tried to think it was by accident that
Helen had mentioned Tom's name, but acci
dent or not, the thought persistently stayed
in her mind that Helen believed it would be
a good thing if she should marry Tom Bar
bury. She could not rid herself of the im
pression that she had somehow received
Helen's consent and blessing.
8he thought of Tom a great deal; she
couldn't help it. Ho was so superior to
ueien s husband, in fact he was superior to
most of the men she met She begau to feel
guilty that she had not appreciated him
On the long Journey home she indulged in
a great many day dreams. What if she
should marry Tom aft or all! Her home was
absolutely hcr's in her own right Of course
he would come there and live. Perhaps ho
would give up his business and look after
tier's. Sho was sura there must bo plenty
to do, for lawyers were always bothering
her, bringing her somo papers or other to
sign. But even if he kept on at his old busi
ness, wh ich bad certainly been a good and
profitable ono to him, well, it wasn't so
divadful after all ; nnd for the first time in
ten years Miss Elizabeth mentally sniffed
shoe leather without finding the odor disagreeable.
Then the thought darted across ber mind
that perhaps Tom would never ask her
again. She nervously and hurriedly tried
to remember bow ho had taken her last re
fusal. He certainly hadn't seemed crushed
by it but perhaps a man gets used to that
sort of thing after awhile. She thought of
the first time, ten years ago. when be had
told her that ho loved ber, and she had de
clined to take his honest manly love. Aht
he felt badly enough then! Miss Elizabeth
"1 wish, I wish that I had married him
then," sho Mild to herself, 1 would be a
happier and better woman to-day if I had.''
Then she thought or all tho other times.
Sometimes ho had asked herscriously, some
times utmost as ir it were a joke. This last
time, sho remembered that his kind, good
face scarcely changed at all when sho said ;
"Iso. dear '1 oni. it ran never be." What if
he should never ask her again ! But she re
assured herself. Of course he would, why
it was a hubitof his that had almost become
chronic! And the very next time sho would
well, sho wasn't sure but she might say
It never occurred to her that it was rather
a selfish thing, to give him her band now
because she was getting a littlo old and
lonely, and needed him.
He came to see her as soon as sho came
home, and heard all about ber visit und the
wedding, listening with that look of pleas
ure which his face always wore when she
talked to him.
As he arose to go he said:
"Elizabeth, wo bavo a little girl, a sort of
consul staying with us. Sbo is very young
and shy, aud I'm afraid sbo isn't having a
very good time. May I bring her to see you.
and will you help me to mako it pleasant for
"Certainly. Tom," said Elizabeth, gra.
dously, "let mo help yon all 1 can. I shall
bo very glad to do so."
Sho thought afterward that it was just
like Tom, to be thinking of somo one's
else pleasure. He brought tho little cousin,
a pretty girl of about eighteen, with a face
as innocent as a child, and soft, timid man
ners, that won one's heart
Miss Elizabeth invited her to dinner, sha
gave a littlo party for her to introduce her
to the young tieople of her own age. she
took her to drive and had her come and
practice her music on her own grand piano.
She was very kind and sweet to her, and all
for Tom's sake.
"He has asked me to help him," ahe
thought, "and I will show him that 1 can
give my help freely aad gladly."
The oaly trouble was that she so seldom
saw Tom alone new, for Lucy waa aeariy
always with him.
"But sever mind." thought Miss Eliza
beth, "she will go home before long and
then we will drop back into our old ways."
One night, however, Tom came alone.
and they sat by the firs as they had dene so
often. She was a littls stiff and formal in
her manners, for her thoughts about Tom
made her conscious now that she waa alone
with him. She found it hard to be as easy
and natural as she had always been, but be
did not seem to notice it
Suddenly he reached over and took her
hand. Every drop of blood seemed to fly
from Elizabeth's body. She was frightened,
she had not expected it so soon. She had
not thought he would ask her again for two
or three months at least, bat there was no
mistaking that look aad that deep, earnest
tone. She had see a aad heard taeas too
often not to know what they meant bow.
"Elizabeth," he said slowly, "I have
something that I waat to say to you."
Her heart beat wildly, she nerved herself,
more for her answer tbaa for his qaestioa.
"Yes," she thought, "I shall tell him tbat
I will marry aim. I am aet afraid, I knew I
shall be very happy; hew glad be will aa!"
"You have always beea the best friead I
have had, Elizabeth," he went oa "yoa know

you would marry me, aad I have asked you

Suddenly she sat up and was calm.
"It serves mc right" she said, "it serves
mc quite right I have been ashamed of
him, and have trifled with bis love all these
years. Even now, when I bad made up my
mind to accept him, I didn't lovo him with

through it all! But" nnd here her laughter
broke out again, "I will never be so sure of
any thing again in my life, as I was of my

CONDITIONS OF SUCCESS.
Why Some Slea Fall Where Others Grow
Wealthy aad Prosperous.
There are a great many people who
seem to think that their success in life
depends ujKin certain conditions, are
always finding' fault because those con
ditions arc not in accordance with their
ideas. This would seem to he not a fault
of tho conditions, but of the person to
whom the conditions apply. The fact
is, conditions aro just what wo mako
them, and tho whole secret of success
rests entirely with ourselves, and wo
aro responsible for the results. The
reason for one man's success and the
failuro of another in the same line are
not facts joverd by circumstances
or conditions, outside of the individuals
We see qu ite often a mun. who. judg
ing from his education and training,
ought to be successful, only make a
dismal failure, while auothcr, with
comparatively little education, and
who has had no training, other than
that he has given himself, is eminently
successful, and every move made by
him turned to good account In such a
cjt.so no particular credit is given the
man himself, but "the conditions wero
right," or "luck favored him." Noth
ing conld bo mo.ro foolish or do tho in
dividual a greater injustice. Luck,
conditions and circumstances are
mythical so far as any reality or influ
encing existences arc concerned.
The men who are the most success
ful are the men who, combining a
strong will power with active and
energetic determination, make the con
ditions and circumstances, and never
allow themselves to be influenced by
these mythical nonentities.
The only conditions there are govern
ing success are not those that precede
tho man, but those existing in the man
at the start, and which he controls by
his own action.
The man whose motto is pal ma non
sine pulvere, and who thoroughly and
honestly lies up to his motto, will bo
pretty sure of success.
Some men do not succeed because
they undertake something for which
they have no natural adaptability, and
because they fail of success, curse luck,
conditions and circumstances, when if
they would undertake another line of
accomplishments, they might gain the
success they so much court.
Adaptability has nioro to do with
success than either conditions or cir
cumstances, and this should be tho
first study of the young man who is
looking for a chance to start in life.
A business that will pay one man
will n ot pay another, and because one
man makes a certain line pay and is
successful, is not a good and sufficient
reason why every one should rush into
that business. Such examples of hot
headed haste to become wealthy aro
too common, and the lesson they teach
should bo thoroughly learned by every
If you would be successful, choose
that business for which you have the
most natural adaptability, and which
is not beyoud your jniwers of control,
and then stick to it When reverses
come and losses occur, do not stop to
mourn these, or make yourself and
friends miserable with complaints
about luck and conditions, but put all
the more vim and energy into your
business. You can't undo what has
been done: you may prevent a recti
rence. and may certainly profit by the.
experience; while if you stop or become
downhearted, morose and uncomforta
ble yourself, every thing about ou
will be contaminated, and instead ol
improving will grow worse.
Before entering business, prepare
your mind to meet all these changes,
which are sure to come, and when the;
do come meet them like a man, and
These are the only conditions of

EZ RA CORNELL'S BOYHOOD.
Tha Indastrjr and lrvinnrt of the
Fouailrr of a 4'rvat Unlvrralty.
Years ago there lived in the interior
of New York a boy, the son of a farmer,
who also worked at tho trade of a pot
ter. Tho boy was a marked youth, bo
causo he did with might whatever ho
undertook. He was a leader in the or
dinary sports of boyhood: and. when
ever the farm or the pottery relaxed
their hold upon him he would ho found
repairing some damaged article or do
vising a new implement
His father was poor, the farm was
small, aud could only bo enlarged by
clearing up the primeval forest Tho
boy was anxious to acquire knowledge,
but his services wens so necessary to
his father that he could not be spared
to attend the winter term of the com

year his junior, he chopped and cleared

plowed it. planted it with corn, har
vested the corn, and then asked, as hb
compensation, to be allowed to attend
school during winter. Of course the
father granted the wwh.
When the boy was seventeen the
father's pottery business had so in
creased as to demand a more extensive
factory. A carpenter was hired to
build the aew building, and the boy
assisted him. So familiar did he be
come with the tools and trad e that he
determined, with the aid of the younger
brother, to erect a twe-story frame
dwelli ng-house for his father's family.
The two boys cut the timber from
the forest planned and framed the
structure, and t hen invited the neigh
bors to assist at the "raising." They
came from far aad near to see what a
lad of seventeen had done- When eve
