Old Familiar Things,
Only the other day th? papers
told the story of a man who trav
eled all the way from Indiana
bo Massachusetts to trace and
buy back an old family horse
that he had sold a few months
before. Ever since the horse
liad been gone, the man's wife
had grieved. Her condition had
finally become such that her
husband gladly paid a larger
price than he had received, and
cheerfully bore the cost of an
expensive trip besides, to get
ihe horse back.
In the same week New Eng
land newspapers recorded the
tragic death of un old man who
was .uvlug comfortably with a
?amed daughter in a town near
Boston. The cause ascribed waa
l4s^pQtfing for the farm where
lie had spent most of his days^
itnd which he had left for a pre
sumably easier existence.
There also appeared lately in
m? ?? the magazines, a descrip
tion of t.'ie pathetic last act
which marks th? ?.ual abandon
nent of an old farm-the auction
by which the homely household
utensils that have borne so infci
nate a relation to the home are
listributed among neighbors to
whom they have no special sig
Similar things are constantly
K'curring. To any one with in
sight, they disclose the depth of
leutimcnt which lies hidden even
n the most unemotional of Jives.
For young people, especially,
hey are full of significances.
Nothing is more natural than
bat a son should sny: "Father
s getting too old to live alone
my longer. The land is all run
>nt, anyway. TVe might as well
ell the old place and bring him
lown here with us, where he
;an be more comfortable."
It is the beginning of tragedy.
lo land is ever so run out that it
loes not produce a harvest of
nemories more precious than the
?est crop of corn it ever raised.
Ton can make the old man coin
ortable, but yon can rarely
lake him happy.
The roots of an old tree go
eep, and the real sustenance
hey draw comes not through
uch obvious tap-roots as food
nd shelter and clothing, but
y little threadlike fibers hidden
rom sight, twined about every
tone and penetrating every
loud. It is ill transplanting
uch. a tree.-Youth's Com pan
