going to the other side of tho room,
opened a cabinet and took from It n

Tho circumstances under which his
letters to tho girl went astray weio to
him mysterious, but, as n matter or

the daughter of a country hlwyer, nnd
ho bad made 'her acquaintance when
sho was staying lu a boarding houso
In Bloorasbury, In which ho was also
a lodger. Her rnason for being In
towu was that sho might Improve n

Jlst doing so arrived J
when the aunt be

back thn notes of
this obviously poor
Cat son often felt
destitute, but never
ho utterly as thou,
aud as he paced the
lloor the laughter
of the hf.ppy crowd seemed to mock
him. Ho rang tho bell and ordered
Home tea. The dcnime llttlo maid
looked ni him, and, going down stairs,
"Poor Mr. Carhoit, lie looks so
ftiange and uilheruhlo!"
Returning, she found him sitting In
his chair gazing with half-closed eyes
Into the lire. Placing tho tea on a
hinall wlikor table by his side, ehc at
tracted his attention by the question,
"Anything cle, sir?"
"No," was tho reply, "but, see, this
Is New Year's Kve. You've been a good
servant to me, nt least. Hay yoiirsolu
something," hnndini her a sovereign.
The amount of the gift bereft tho girl
of the power of speech, and with a
curtesy, eloquent In Itself of gratitude,
Carson, sipping his ten, again solilo
quized. "It's now within nu hour and
a quniter of the New Year. What
will that year bring Into my life? It
cannot bring the light of love nnd
companionship. The same round ot
weeks and months, and so It will bo
to the end. Ten years ago, In Old
Kentucky, we said 'flood-by.' It was
a 'good-by forever."
Apostrophizing the absent woman,
ho continued: "Leila, Leila, to my
grave I take with mo tho love 1 bear
you. Why did we II vo to bo parted so
ruthlessly? What strange fate has so
guided our destinies?"
IIcHurncd to tho story of Kvangellno
and read ot the sufferings of that
heroic character. The wading soothed
him and he fell asleep.
The clocks were striking tho twelfth
Kroko of midnight when he awoke.
He barely opened his ejes, then close!
them again, and llhteued to the Joyous
ralutatloiiH of people meeting lu the
streetB. He, was not selfish, neither
was ho had uatiircd. No man who
every truly loved can be altogether
either. As ho listened he said:
"I wish for all u bright New Yenr,
and Leila, my nbacnt Leila, whom 1
shall never sec again, may your life
know no sorrow, may yours never be
tho aching hcait, and may you be
blessed In your children growing up
around you. My Leila "
Ho did not finish thu sentence, but
tiie teats e.uno trickling down his
checks as he rc.illzed his bnrren life.
Then be became conscious that sonio
ono had come Into the room and been
n witness nt his weakness and his se
cretsecret because society said Wal
ter Carson carried his heart ou his
sleeve and was Incapable of deep affec
tion. So sitting up and turning round
he was startled to see seated on a
chair a tall lady, clad In deep mourn
ing anil veiled so heavily that ho was
unable to distinguish her face.
"Madam," ho inquired, too tnken
aback even to gel up, "I; should liko to
know why I am thus honored?"
"I came In with tho New Year. Not
an omen ot Ill-luck, I hope," replied
a inimical voice: "but I first want to

; will allow mo to say that I think your

ceeded tho mysterious Btrnngcr.
Carson was uttorly unprepared for
this, and his surprise was painfully
manifest. Appearing not to notice it,
tho lady wont on:
"You aio unhappy, I know, Mr. Wil
ton. I shall not call you Mr. Carson.
I am certain ot It, because I was watch
ing you for ton minutes beforo yoii
opened your eyes. Can I bo ot any
help to you?"
"I don't usderatand you, madam,"
answered Carson. "I havo no trouble,
at least nono that you could assist
"Has it any connection with an old
love affair?" vory slowly asked tho
"I must decllno to discuss my pri

replied Carson, Jumping up.

responded tho stranger, nh:o rilr.K,
and as alio did to throwing back her
"Leila!" gasped Carson, looking
Incredulously Into her face.
"Yes, Leila." was tho answer whis
pered, whllo her urms stolo round hla
neck, "come back to you with tho New
Year, never to leave your side until It'
so pleases God."
Then they sat down anil alio told
him how, three years before, after be-
lng left a widow, tsho determined to
Hntl out what had becomo of the sweet
heart of her younger days. How, by
a chapter of happy accidents, Bhe
learned tbnt he was In London. How,
on knowing this, alio hurried ovcr lanij

New Year entered his room. Sho saw
the tears fall from his eyes, heard her

out to her. All doubts wcro the at
"My children will be here by the
next boat, nnd you must bo to them a

with tho excitement ot the day."
Carson drove her to her hotel, and

Ilopei nt tliti Future, i
With the coming of the Now1 Year
all our hopes of futuro good for ofir
selves and for humanity at largo re-,
iccelvu a new Impulse and an accession
of power. If we nro alive to the wide
extension ot knowledge, the conquest
of tho material world, tho Imminence
of new and important discoveries und
changes which shall make the possibil
ities of life more Interesting and beau
tiful, wo cannot but rejoice that wo
aro born Into this wonderful epoch.
Tennyson's poem, written in tho flush
of young manhood, voiced the scien
tific fact In eloquence that can never
bo forgotten, but tho thoughts of men
nro widened by the process of the
suns. lt is tuily to the thoughts of men
thnt we owe all the triumphs ot civil
ization, the triumphs of religion, art,
Industry and science, as In the last re
sort all that Is and all that we hopn
for resides In the thoughts of men nnd
In tho feelings and emotions which
give birth to theso thoughts, nnd be
tween which there is such a constant
IUUnrlne Our Ilooki.
When the year Is ended and the
final Humming up of accounts Is finish
ed, It Is comforting to look back and
to be able to say, In all sincerity, thnt
wo havo done tho best we could for our
selves nnd for thoso about us, It is
more than comforting to seo that wo
havo gained something, that our ef
forts have been crowned with success,
nnd that wo nro by this advance
ment enabled to scoro n victory, even
though It may bo trifling, over ad
voreo ciicumstnnces. Is encourages us
to rcdoublo our efforts to mako a bet
ter showing for tho years to come, to
so order our affairs that this season's
gain will bo but tho beginning of bet
tor things, and that tho great and
grand fabric of bur futuro may rise,
over increasing, over moro and more
beautiful, and end In n noble, manly,
womanly, Christian, symmetrical char
acter that will mako its possessor
known and honored of nil men.
To tho You lie
Whllo tho opening of tho Now Year Is
a slgnllknnt season for persons of all
ages, It 1b especially so to tho young
nnd thoso In early maturity. Thero is
bo much ahead of tho youngsters; bo
much for them to look frwnrd to, to

help them to make their lives worth

As to the further expression of his

the conduct of thu court in making no
