A Cheerful Giver
"The Lord lovetli n cheerful glrer,"
and "It is inoro blessed toplvo than to
receive," are faltufm sayings, auri
worthy of nil acceptation. Give where
your gift is needed, whore it brings
joy and gladness, and your own heart
will swell with real pleasure. To lav
ish gifts upon the rich, the strong, the
powerful, in the hopo that you nay re
ceive in turn, is moan, groveling and
pitiful. Don't belittle yourself that
way. Olvo freely only where love
prompts, or better yet, go out among
God's poor, huut out those less favored
or less fortunate and do acts that will
brighten human lives and the bright
ness will come back into your own
heart by reflection.
The great and noble characters of
the world, the men in all ages who
have been admired and loved have
been the generous men. 'Che shunued
and hated and despised creatures of
tho human race have always been the
misers, the stingy, grasping, boarding
pinching wretches who valued money
above human souls, and hugged their
wealth in the face of misery. The
world shouts and laughs when such
men die, but it follows the generous
man to his grave with tears and real

A Shrewd Economist
Patrick O'Hoolihan was the oraole of
the little Irish village He was the
wisest of the wise and was looked up
to by the other members of the com
munity as a veritable enclyclopedia.
But especially did he pride himself
upon scriptural learning.
It was the custom in the village
church Sunday mornings for all the
inhabitants to attend, and Pat, who
never missea a aunday, always occu
pied a front pew.
One Sabbath, when the minister was
reading the Bible, several dlguitariea
were present from another town, and
in an endeavor to wax particularly
eloquent the pastor became slightly
confused and said, "And there were
five thousand loaves and three Ashes
to feed a altitude of seven." And
then to point bis moral and adorn his
tale he looked straight at the infallible
Pat and said, "And sure, Pat, you
couldn't do that, now could you?"
"Indade, I could," said Pat, and the
That night however when the preach-
er reached his home and thought ovor
his morning sermon, it dawned on him
that be unci made a serious error con
cerning the loaves and fishes. Accord
ingly the next Sunday lie rose in the
pulpit andsaid in explanation, "Breth
ren' last Sabbath I made a mistake and
said that there were five thousand loa
ves and three fishes to feed tho multi
tude of seven, but what I should have
said was that there were seven loaves
and three flisbes to feed a multitude of
five thousand." And then he looked
at Pat again and said, "And now Pat,
sure you could no tdo that, could you?"
Ab.yls.Ol could," replled,Pat.
And how would you do It, Pat?"
asked the minister,
Why,' said Pat, "01 would give thim
what was left over from laat Sunday."

The light shone from the cottage oc
cupied by Miss Atkinson, n maiden of
a considerable number of years, who
IwtiB entertaining at tho moment three
other staid and elderly women at
Just as ono of tho threo had said
'disgustedly that she mado it spades
JMIss Atkinson, who was facing the
porch, gave a bloodcurdling shriek
and her cards flow all ovor tho room.
"A man!" sho hlBsod. "Thoro was

Ono of the bravest of the four ven

The guests put Miss Atkinson to

emelllng salts and locked eveVy win

jwlth fright, the three held hands and.
bolted for the hotel.
It was a little later that the Bundy
cottage was upset Mrs. Bundy had,
put the children to bed and was cro-'
chetlng while her guest, Mrs. Hulton,
was reading aloud a particularly grew-'
some detective story. Suddenly Mrs.
Bundy made a startled clutch at Mrs.1
Huton's wrist and said: "Lls-s-ten!"
Mrs. Hulton heard It. too. "Th-th-
fhere must be t-t-two of 'em!" stam
mered Mrs. Hulton. "I can hear four
r-f-feet Just as plain!"
There certainly were several differ
ent footsteps outside the cottage-
slow, careful footsteps. There was
also deep breathing. Then something
blurred against the low diamond
paned window over the corner win
dow .seat. Thereupon Mrs. Bundy
gave a cheep like a strangled chicken
and nearly went over backward In her
Holding the family revolver at arm's
length and with her-head turned tbe
other way, Mrs. Bundy sat down again
nd they listened. There was noth
ing to be heard. They passed tbe rest
pf the night on guard.
j Farther down the lake shore, on
the rustic seat facing the moon, Laura
Spllger and her young man sat talk-
ling. Tbolr absorption in each other
Jwas so great that they heard nothing;
jttntll something strange was thrust
joter' Laura's left shoulder. Toung
'JBturmaster made a wild but futile grab
rt Laura as she leaped in toe air.

Jsllppery terrace, she tumbled down
