Mary waa not only angry with Tommy

saving the world, an 1 making it hnppler.
LJke any other young girl In the same
situation, she had thought principally of i
saving her own skin. And' remembering
that thla had been se, ahe could not but
be a little shaken aa to her own powers
and worthiness. She believed heraelf a
human being for tha time ahe should re
main on earth, but not a. human being
born of human parents. In Heaven ah
had been all Celestial, and would be
Celestial more when ahe returned
to Heaven. She had merely been changed
temporarily Into a human being by tha
ntvlne Will for Divine purpoaea. That
was what, ahe believed, with the com
plete faith' of a little child.
The Octagon fire did not really ihake
Celestla's faith In herself, her origin or
her destiny, but It set her to asking
questions. What line must ahe draw be
tween heraelf aa a human being au I her
self as a Celestial? Already certain palna
of thla- earth and certain pleasure! had
been truat upon her. She had not been
able to prevent the fire, or to escape its
terrors. No more could she keep her
heart from beating a little quicker whek
ever aha thought of Tommy. Hov long
was she to be a human being? Until her
work was done a few years at best. She
wctild have to eat and tn drink and to
sleep. What other Indulgences could ahe
grant heraelf? Only such as would not
Interfere with her work. Ia the best

So far -as Is known, women have no
