"Uh, John, we ure to blame,"
cried Mary, lo,\al to Kute. "1 don't
Know exactly what we could have
done, but we ought to huve done
something I hiue felt vexed about
it all day. Knte wus too tired for
such a long walk: to-night, she looks
us though she could scarcely stand,
^he hns been doing ever so much,
this week, and 1 have not helped her
at all, 'there isn't much that I can
do, but I might hnve offered to wash
the china in the druwingroom, the
other day, instead of going with you
to Ailsu Craig. 1 only thought ol it
after we had sturted."
"Roally, Mary, I don't see why
you should feel bound to assist,
whenever Kate chooses to make
"Well," admitted Mary, with a
gay laugh, "I do not know why the
house is being turned ujiside down
just now. It does not seem long
since it was done Inst time. Still,
1 never do anything but enjoy myself. Do you know, John, it sometimes frightens me to think how
happy my life hns been. Kate has a
great many worries: almost every
one I know has hnd trouble of some
kind X have had none. Uo you think
it is all coming?"
The eyes she raised to his had a
look of terror in litem.
"No, dear," he said gently. "Why
should it come? If I can keep tt
awuy from you, it shall never touch
you, Mary."
"Vou! Ah, but you will be going
away again. When you are gone, I
menu to write to you. 1 shall send
you a letter once a month: you won't
mind if they are rather stupid? Kate
writes clever letters,  but 1 don't."
"Mary, I want to speak to you
about the future."
"Not to-night, John," she Interrupted hastily. "I hate lo think of
what is coming. This has been such
a nice evening, don't let us be
gloomy and spoil it all. The 'future' means, you out in Australia,
and I—I don't know whero! No,
no: we will not speak of lt."
"But, dear, you are going away
"Only for four days."
"I wish you were not going,
"Oh, I must. I promised Undo
Forester, ever so long ago, that I
would spend his birthday with him.
1 shall be back on Tuesday."
"Well then, Mary, make a bargain
with me. On Tuesday night, we are
to come out here, nnd discuss our future. Promise that, and I will not
speak about it now."
"Very well, if you wish it," she
assented; "though why you choose to
think about such disagreeable sub-
jests, I don't know. Do listen, John,
thoso waves are laughing."
The.v walked hoinn together in silence: he, intent on the thought of
Tuesday. It was not so very far ofl
—only four days How inexpressibly
dear to him Mary had becomet The
time they had spent together, had
been more full of happiness than he
had imagined possible; and this wae
merely a foretaste of what the future held. Always Mary should be
thus perfectly happy, sheltered by
his care from tho remotest approach
of trouble or distress; always hs
should find perfect huppiness, in thus
caring for, and worshipping her. He
recalled Mr. Ferris' commendations
of Kate, nnd smiled — Kate was so
unworthy to bo mentioned in the
Same breath with her beautiful, simple-minded,  pure hearted cousin.
Mury, walking by his side, let her
tliout hts wander Idly where tboy
would, now to the sky, now to the
sea, now to the wild flowers on the
dyke; her mind pervaded by a vague
sense thnt it was a delightful thing
to be alive, and that the world was
a beautilul place to live in.
On Haturduy morning, Mary Forester left I eldrossun to join her
cousins. Kute Watched the departure,
and suddenly realised that for three
duys she would have the undivided
companionship of tho man she loved.
A wild ie klc sness took possession
of h r. John hud gone with Mary to
('arlelgh, antl when he returned —
groaning at  the thought of  tho Irk
some time that must be passed
ihrough somehow — ho found a lively, brilliant companion awaiting him.
Xo one could be more entertaining
than Kate when sho chose to exert
herself; sho exerted herself now. She
mado John laugh all through dinner,
nt her droll tiles of the villagers; she
revived a hundred reminiscences of
doings liefore lie left Scot land; and
she wiped out the lust trace of the
disagreeable impression she had mush*
on him lately, by Baying in a tone
balf-jesting. half-appealing. "I have to
po on a foraging expedition this nf-
ternoon, John; I must buy chickens
at a farm two miles away, In spite
of jny advanced yeurs ond inflrm «<m-
l»r^—1 would like a companion I Will
you come if you huve nothing better
to do?" IK* assented most willingly.
Saturday wus invariable passed by
Mr. Ferris in his study, in preparation for tlie next day's service; no
one saw him I'rnni morning to night,
except Kale, who carried his meals
to him on a tray Which she placed
beside him Without a disturbing
word. To-day, when she brought
his dinner, she found him standing
before the window, absorbed in
though*., lie roused himself at her
entrance, oame inward her, hold her
face    tietween   her   hands   and   kissed
her forehead solemnly.
"God bless .vou, my dear," he snid
"you are a gootl girl, Kate, a gootl
"Oh, I am not, I nm not, I'ncle!"
protested Knte, choking slsiwn a sob.
She flow to her room to mnke ready
for her walj<, fetched her marketing
basket,   and  joined  her  companion.
They walked considerably flirt her
thnn the farm, jesting and laughing
the whole way. It was past the usual tea hour, when they ret lined.
Kate made .lohn carry Mr, Ferris'
tea to him, she would not go into the
study herself: afterwards, they
strolled down the garden and seatesl
themselves in a shaded nook. It was
a breathless evening, the air was
laden With the scent of roses and
mignonette, not a leaf stirred on the
trees, the sea murmured indistinctly. That night nnd the two thnt
followed, burned themselves into
Kate's memory. She made John
talk. Ily adroit questions and suggestions, she drew from him an account of his life in Melbourne and tho
whole history of his business difficulties nnd struggles. She could talk
well herself, b^it she possessed nlso
the rarer gift of making others talk
well, nnd of making them feel that
they did so. Turing a momentary
pause In their conversation, they
heard the Church clock strike ten.
John looked up in amazement.
"How the time hns flown! You
are rood company,  Knte."
"Thanh you," she said, with
a       sudden rush        of color
to her fare. "We must go in now,
however, Uncle likiss early hours kept
on PfturdaV."
"The walk to-day has done you
gootl. Kate: you begin to look like
yourself. What on earth mnkes you
slave ns you have bnen doing'' You
ought to tnke mure rest: come for a
Ion'/ sail With nie on Monday."
"I will." sn'd Kate.
When she had closed her bedroom
door, her vivacity left her.
"Now I shull have to pay for all
this, I suppose," slie muttered be-
tween her teeth. Hut she was mistaken. None of the tormenting thoughts
she dreaded came to keep her wakeful for hours. The devils who si ill
held their ground arrayed themselves
as angels of light; th"y laisl BOOthlng
hands about her heart, unsl whispered
pease in hi-r ear. "Why torment
yourself," they whispered, "why
think nt nil? *i ou have kept yourself
out of this man's way for two weeks;
nsiw that his companionship is thrust
upon you, you must entertain him,
you cannot help yourself. It is not
your doing that this duty falls lo
vou. it cannot be a sin to be courteous " — the poison worked, Kate
was almost asleep — "Moreover,"
whispered the devils, "he anil Mary
are not engaged. You have absolutely
no positive proof that they care for
e.ich other. It is only natural tnnt
he should feel bound to shew every
attention to her for Alices sake, if
for no other reason. What are lool.s
Worth? Vou may be mistaken. And
you have only three days" — Kate
On Sunday she sat With John in
the old parish church. The manse
pew was at the far end of the building, with a high partition in front
of it which almost hid the occupants
when they were seated.
Mr. Ferris preached a remarkable
sermon that dny. His instinct hail
misled him on some points, but not
on others; he hail once thought that
John loved Kate, now he knew thai
Kate loved John. He understood her
impulsive abandonment of herself to
hard work. For her sake he accepted, witli mute resignation, all the
discomforts attendant on an unnecessary house cleaning. He hud
watched her most anxiously throughout tho past fortnight; fathoming
the meaning of her weary looks and
her little outbursts of temper, and
longing to convey some comfort to
her. He debated whether he should
speak to her directly, but he dared
not; Kate's proittl spirit would not
tolerate a word from him. Finally
after much prayer he decided to
preach to her from his pulpit. His
sermon from beginning to end, was
Intended for Knte ulone—and she
knew it. The moment he announced
his text, "('.renter love huth no man
than this, thai u man lay down h:s
life for his friends," Knte divined
what had been in his mind vs hen he
had kissed her so Solemnly: and
though she could not prevent, the
words he spoke from piercing her
ears, she steeled her heart firmly
nguinst them. The stolid congregation was amazed ul the unwonted
eloquence with which Mr. Ferris unburdened himself of his fervid utterances; those who wero usually inclined to sleep through the discourse
found themselves unaccountabh wide
awake; even the consumption of peppermints ceased, except among the
very juvenile members of the Hock.
He shewed his audience that tho
words had a spiritual significance
abovo the niatcriul meaning they
were accustomed to attach to them;
that Hie spiritual lifo to which they
referred, wns the life of tove: thnt
the life sif love involved self-sacrifice.
He shewed how mothers and fathers
sacrifice themselves for their children,
how husbands utul wives Bncrlllco
themselves for eueh other, und how
theRo sacrifices are appreciated ami
reciprocated in after years; and
then he spoke of tho sacrifices
made by men for men, and, more
often still by women for women-
sacrifices unappreciated, unseen perhaps by any human eye, but felt,
known, treasured, by the heart of
love, by Ood. He admitted the darkness of the path the.v were called upon to tread who made such sacrifices;
he did not dony the agony involved,
the awful Buffering to be endured,
but he painted those, who were,
tempted lo shrink from the Buffering
and give up the battle, to One who
having stilTered temptation Himself,
knew how to rescue all tempted ones
now. And then, his voice troubling
with emotion, the old mun ended his
discourse, fell upon his knees, and
said. "Hrethern, we will plead with
<!od oa behalf of all who ure templed, that their faith fail not. Let us

John  and   Kate  started  early    for
their sail next duy; there was a tine

looked    unsettled.    Their boat    Hew '■

Kato an odd sense of elation;    rapid

sho had never known care, her    eyes
wero brilliant,  her face glowed with
color,  her laugh of    pure enjoyment
was pleasant to hear;  John  wus astonished at her gaiety. Time (lew as
swiftly as  the boat.    Towards    five
o'clock, the sky became overcast nn.l
tho wind dropped;  they were by this
time not far from home, they lowered the sail and John took the oars.
"Confess now, Kate," he said, ufter
looking at her for a little, "all this

"Yes," she said, "it makes me
sleep better, I am less wakeful at
nights." I
"Were you very wakeful?" .
"What kept you awake, I wonder?"
"The devil."
"Kate!" j
"Don't look so shocked," she said,
With a reckless laugh: "that was a

"Xo." !
She thought she detected an accent

"People like Mary, draw goodness

"Does Mary?"
"And you?"
"I am sorry, Kate," he said,
touched by the bitterness that looked out from her eyes. "What is it
that you want now? Cnn't I help
you to get it?    I would like to?"
"Yes, you can;" she said deliberately. "(Jive me the oars first, and
look about for the fishing tackle, I
put it somewhere. There is bait in

now, is to have my larder stocked

Following her directions, he had
excellent sport, for the next half hour.

Chicago,   Nov.   15,
Some weeks ago Ur, <>—. a very

colled tsi attend u very complicated
case of Rheumatism, Upon arriving
nt the house he found a mini ubout

his whole frame dangerously affected
with the painful disease. He prescribed for the piUienl. but lbs'
mun continued to grow   worse,  and
on   Sunday   evening   lie   wus   found   tO
be  in  u  very    alarming   condition.
The knees and elbows and larger
joints    were    g!eatly     inlluuteil,    and
could imi   be moved,    it   was   only
Willi extreme difficulty that the patient could be turned In bed. with
the aid of three or four persons. The
weight of the clothing was bo painful that means had to be adopted to
keep  it  from the patient's  body.
The doctor saw that his assistance
would be of tn) avail, and left the
house,  tho members   of   the   family
following   him   to   the  sloor.   weeping.
Almost Immediately tho grief stricken ones were addressed by an humble
German. He had heard of the despair of the family, and now asked
lhem to try his remedy, and accordingly brought forth u bottle of St.
Jacob's Oil. The poor wife applied
this remedy. The lirst application
eased the patient very much: altera
few hours they used it again, and.
wonder of wonders, the pain vanished entirely! Every subsequent application improved the patient, and in
two slays lis- was well and out. When
the doctor called a few days after,
he  was  surprised.
