for holding writing material and odds and
ends that accumulate about a piece of furni

WE SAID SO!
By Anne M. Prcscutt.
But, the subject is a subtle one r
and requires a finer analysis and
appreciation than our lame pen is
capable o giving. Tact is like
tbo porfumo o tho wood-violet,
liko the whiff of mignonette
throughout tho theatrp after tho
little French woman has Irnpnod
up and down its parquot, its boxes
and balconies; it is as gratoful ns
the smell of tho box and the pine
at Christmas-tido; ns acceptable
as the aroma of boiling coltce nt
breakfaBt it meots with a pleas
ant grace the young and tho old,
tho rich or the poor.
"Tact." Tho knowing just when
to speak and tho right word and
in tho right plnce; when to bo
Bilout; when to offer our services;
whon not to intrude; when to give
a goutlo hint, a word of counsol;
whon to seo and when to uo blind,
"stone blind" and entirely deaf.
If wo know how always and if wo
had tho ready tact to make tho
"awkward squad" feel porfectly at
homo; in short, if wo knew just
how, whoro niul when to perform
all tho gracoful and winning
courtesies of our daily lifo that
school from which wo graduato by
tho ono gate, only death. Oh,
for the all-discriminating, inborn
fairy gift, tactl "A tact which
surpassed tho tact of her box as
much ns tho tact of hor box sur
passes tho tact of ours.!'
Whatj then, is tnctj wo nsk, but
tho spirit of truo Christian charity
jat all times and m all places
Auy man who is tho owner of
a horse, poor or good, fast or slow,
valuable or otherwise, knows if ho
hns even three grains of sonso
(but too many mon havo not ovon
ono nnd they aro tho ones too of
ten who can own n horso) that
sotting the law of mercy to one
sido, it is a spocio loss, hard ensh,
to illuso his boast of burden; that
it will not draw so well nor drive
bo well as whon decontly fed,
groomed and praised. No living
animal relishes and understands
commendation bettor than tho
horso or missos it more. And
what does it cost to givo him a
caressing word and a stroko of
praiso after n long and wearisome
drag or ride. "Tact!"
Wo had a fine examplo (au ob
ject losson),of tho sonBiblo man.
Now it happened on this wiso: A
goodly pioco of ground with ups
and downs and not a fow stones,
land that had been entirely un
improved for a scoro of years, foil
to his lot to redeem and straighten
out to plough and to lovol. For
many days under our eyes and
closo to our oars wosaw without
looking, and hoard without listen
ing, tho progress of that work.
Paradoxical, but novortholoss
strictly truo. "Tact!"
""Well, what was tho work?"
"Wait my friend n minuto, pray
uso a little tact in your curiosity.
A rudo plough, a good, strong
nativo horse, and two pea
Bants. Ah, but thoy woro tho right
mon in tho right placo! On an
avorago of onco ovory ton minutcQ
throughout tho day wo hoard pre
cisely tho same words: "Go along
Billy! Get up thoro; what's mat
tor you?" in tones moro or loss
emphatic as tho urgency of tho
momont soomod to demand. Somo
times tho stross was on ono word,
only; often on ono clause raroly,
and thau lato in tho day, strong
on tho whole sentence! "Tact.
"Whenever tho horso lagged that
was his spur tho sharp or sud
den or surprised tono of his mas
tor's voico at his short-coming
novor an ugly tone, novor a blow;
simply "tact." It waB amusing,
voryj coming in as an under
current nil tho day when wo woro
busy at anothorkind of ploughing!
Tho work was very hard on thoso
mon; tho days woro at thoir longest
length, tho Bun unrelentingly hot;
but not onco did wo hoar a com
plaining word in digging down,
ploughing and lovolhng Mint land.

At noon thoso men would un-
harncBS tho horso, go torostuudor
