Makes Want J life has bidden a different farewell to the neighborhood In which she had lived for twenty-five years. In those twenty-five years she had reared two children. She hnd hurled her husband and become n grandmother. The two children had died. . Tho grandchild had parsed on. Like her . inntempoiary of Crimes' alley she was ulone. Hut ono of this llttlo woman's briaft pjn was always on the future, while the other was wide open to the opportunity of the present, realizing vividly that sh would not nlWHys be young and strong thst the world would not always spread before her, hut tt-at there would come n time when sho must have a glimpse of I over her shoulder bcciiuso It would lit behind her, she began providing In s small way for that future. A widow who hna two little children mid only a Jftnltress' work and pay, would bo Justified In thinking that she could not save, nut she did save, At first It wss only 10 cents a week. Then It became a qtiurter. When she worked In Turkish baths at 17 a week It became a dollar. And when the little sum nf coins became $5 she hastened to u savings bunk with It and in six months had a pleasant little thrill ut seeing a liny sum written after It In red Ink. She remembered that the presi dent of that same savings bank had said, "When nnyone Is out of debt and has a dollar In tho bank ho Is a capitalist " Besides she knew ti nt poor as she was she had n servant. The flvo-dollar bill was work(ng for her. When she did her Saturday evening marketing she walked threo blocks far ther, to stores where the provisions were as good but cheaper, because tho grocer and butcher paid' less rent. In an even ing's marketing she saved but J cents, but In a years she hnd saved more than ft She bought her clothing late In the season nt antes. Sho always walked un less tho dlstanco was more than ten blocks. She owed that to her health, she snld, as well ns hor pocketbook. Hhe j wasn't ashamed to wear Inst year's styles and she always patronised those drug stores that would take back the botttes and allow hor 6 cents on them. Once she carried back eight bottles and saved enough money for next day's roast and the hash for the next morning's break fast fcr hor family of threo. 8h'o bought those parts of the meut that had been mos,t cxerclnd, lecause It was moro noui laltlng and cheaper. She placed her savings in several banks, because she he Moved that It is safer to keep your sav ings In different baskets. When sho took funds from the banks It was to place thtm on small mortgages at good Inter est So after twenty-five years of hard work and hard saving she hsd realised that which Is a Justifiable ambition and Khould ho a universal one. Sho owns her home and hns sufficient to live, upon In hor years of enforced Inactivity.

That Is characteristic of tlio men. What makes all the neighbors so in dlgnant at the Smith family? I can sco nothing they have done wrong.

It is all only a day in the eyes of time. The stone castle crumbles, the city sinks below the ground and is forgotten. Man can build only cne thing that endures in the individual or in the race, and that is CHARACTER. 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." guarding tt against 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.
