Dreamer. sickness was the cause of
y staving away so long. My dear
Ather has been very ill for tlree weeks
it is mueh better now.
Mrs. Hester Rigorlin visited her moth
MIrs. Sallic Chapman last week.

DPreamer, I thank you for the synop
a of Petrarch and Liura which I find
ery interesting to me for I have a little
xperienc along that line myse'f. But
y looking up we have pictures by the
ngels and whisperings of all that's
right aind fair. Even when the blue
ky is covered Aith leaden clouds, we
ay remember 'hat patience and not
espair bringo a reward. There never
was a trouble that could not be worse; if
we can mond it letq do so, if we can't,
lots beautify our lives as much as we eau
and cover our crosses with roses and
speak of the plenisant things instead of
the nupleasant ones. Girls we will not
always find this journey of life what it
seems, nor, does it lie all the way
t'irough verdant v~dleys and flowery
meadows, nor is it always bright with
the sunhght of pleasure. You will not
find a bed of rosos to ,eoline upon
every time you are weary; we must not
expect it if we would not be disappoint.
ild. We may find some deep gullies to
cross an the briars will tear our nice
elothing, We will find i lenty of roses
by the way but they grow among thoris
and if we would gather them we must
not be afrrid of a few scratches. We
should not have our linen mote spotless
than our character. Keep your con
science clear and your heart pure and as
you go into the word you will make that
name for yourself that it is your right,
nay, your duty to do. Do not sit in the
r. parlor whilegyour mother goes about the
household uties all day with the help
of one girl when there is work for six.
Do not let her wear old clothes that you
ma. wear silk, for when those busy
2' hands are folded over that loving heart
that has ceased to beat, your heart will
ache dud you will think if you only
-could bring mother back yon would love
her ais never before.

and chatty? I felt liks sayiig amen
to the editorial on "Thanksgiving."
Let us render fervent thanks on that
day at least. It will be hard to make
them real and heartfelt unless we y
have been in the habit of thanking
our Heavenly Father for each gift as
we receive it. As Thanksgiving Day
is a milestoue in the passing year, it c
'should be made as Pleasant and
oh erful as our means will' allow.

What an iniRpirati->n the cheerful,
hopeful person is, one who can say
through all the trials and vicissitudes
of life: "The Lord is my Shepherd,
I shall not." When I say a cheerful
spirit I do not mean those who spend
their time in mirth and gaiety, never i
stopping to r fleet on who am I. and
what am I and whither am I going?

Sir 'Tom. I exchanged one- of his
sons with a friand. I was reminded
of the two boys who went to town
each with a sack of rabbits for sale.
One went back home without having
sold a isingle rabbit. His mother
asked what was the reasmn that he
had knade no sale, when , he replied,
i ell, no one never asked me what I
had." Directly the other son came t
in, his sack empty, anti his pocket t
jingling with money; on being asked
how he came to sell out he said, "As e
I walkei the streets every few steps '
I'd halloo 'rabbits, rabbits!' ' I ha

about it being free adveetising, so
