Two CastlesOne Fate for Both

Glowing tlio sun In its golden declining,
Hushed Is tlio world nt tlio twilight's bwcoI voice;
Gcntlo the murmur of dusk na it linger,
Soft Is the rhythm ns night winds rejoice.
Fading thcsun in lis wondrous reclining
'Deep in the arms of the far western skies;
EndleFB tho chorus when dark brings Its music
Afterglow song in the hush when light dies.
Low Is the whisper of night in tho grasses;
Kndless new worlds hero nt evening rejolco.
So ago and tlmo grow more kind for tho knowing,
Darkness still pulses with music's sweet voice.

the almshouse van rattled Up nnd
had taken her and her tittle bundln of
belongings away. Hhe was the widow of
a builder who "had ntado wood money
In his 'time," but who "drank and went
to pieces nt tho Inst." That had been
heard whenever Iter jiamc was mentioned
for five years. Her old friends were
dead, her few remaining relatlvrs were
distant, both In charity and relationship.
And the almshouse wagon was creaking
nnd tattling her away to the Inevitable.
The neighbors atood about and talked
(or a few minutes about the widow's
pasting from Clrlmea' alley.
"She told me herself 'twas her own

said tho baker's wife.
"It's hard, whoever'a tho fault for n

"She said they alweys had tho best of

that she never put anything iby."

CHARACTER IS THE ONE THING WORTH CULTIVATING
By REV. THOMAS B. GREGORY.
Three hundred and fifty-five years ago,
November 17, 1658. Bloody Mar' went to
her reward, and the Princess Elisabeth'
went to Westminster Abbey to bs
crowned queen of England.
Elizabeth was tS
years of age when
she ascended tho
throne, and for
forty-five years she
was to preside over
the fortunes of the
"tight little Island."

its enemies at homo
and abroad, and
laying the founda
tions for the vast
and mighty domln
1 o n which today
girdles the globo
with possessions and its powers.
A greater sovereign than Elizabeth
never sat upon & throne. Clear-headed,
courageous, abounding In patience and
hope, and patriotic to the core, ahe was
always adequate to the occasion, and
failed in not a stngle one of the many
great responsibilities that she was called ,
upon to face. Often tried, sho was never
denied, and at the apex of her splendid
work she stood ready to he tried again, i
It is no wonder that Englishmen are
proud of Elisabeth: for Englishmen are '
well aware of the fact that but for what (
Elizabeth did there would be no England
today. Wnen Elizabeth mounted the
throne the very life of the nation was tn
peril. The mightiest powers end most
subtle forcea cm the planet were In league
for Its destruction. The word had gone
forth that "England murt be destroyed. i
and already preparations were being mads
for making the word good. But the con
spirators did not reckon upon the wonder
ful woman who was to confront them tn
their plot against England and the
human race, j
Firm as a rock stood the great quaes, (
and against her resolute patriotism the
plans of the enemy were broken to pieces. '
Ever alert and always true as steel, Elisa
beth beat down the foes of England as
often as they showed themselves. It took
thirty years for these foes to develop
what they hoped and believed would be
the master-stroke, but the great queen
beat back the "Invincible Armada" and
the worst was over England was safe,
liberty was safe, the future of humanity
was safe, and the English queen had won
the deepest gratitude of all the ages.
For had Philip succeeded in crushing
Elizabeth, the hands on the clock would
have been set back thousands of years.
The holiest interests of humanity were
at stake-freedom, the right to think and
speak; tha right to be one's self, the right
to strive for progress tn science, and in
all the other things that make for the
true, good and glory of humanity and tt
was Elizabeth and her brave and devoted
Englishmen who caved the day for Eng
land and for the world.
