"Zounds."' shouted out Denne War
ing, and leaned from the window aud
looked down aud across lo where a
little urchin slood, a dish of soap aud
water before him, a clay pipe in Ins
hands. As Waring sat delving over a
scientific problem at his work tuble,
Something had floated in through the
open window, struck his face, explod
ed, sending a cloud of vapor into his
nostrils and a stinging shower into his
eyes, and startling him so that he did
not realize that it was a soap bubble
"You young scamp!" he shouted
down, and then was sorry and
ashamed. He now discovered that the
youthful bubble blower was innocent
of intent. Again, a sudden comprehen
sion of his own situation forced a smile
he could not get away from.
"Actually getting cranky with my
delving into invention ! Why, that lit-'
tie child is doing exactly what I'm do
ing-blowing bubbles. Only he has the
fun of it and I the work and no re
sults. H'm! blowing bubbles! That's
what I've been wasting time over for
months. Hello !"
At the echo of a wailing outbreak
Waring leaned again from the window.
The little lad stood sobbing and in
tears, mourning over the broken pipe
at his feet. Evidently Waring's rough
ness had frightened him Into dropping
his precious bubble blower.
'Too bad! I'm a brute!" Waring
censured himself. "But I'll mend it,"
jmd he straightway put on coat and
hat and proceeded to the nearest to
bacco store. The? he purchased half
a dozen clay pipes and gained the
fence surrounding the next door lot. A
gate was open, he passed through i#.
His victim was not in sight, but he
heard voices beyond a mass of trel
lised vines. Advancing, he discovered
this to comprise one end of a sort of
arbor. On a bench inside sat a
young lady. In her lap was the youth
ful bubble blower.
'Don't cry. Ted," she was saying
soothingly. "I'll get you a new pipe
next time I go down town."
'The man broke my balloon and he
made me drop the pipe!"
"Which was wicked and wrong,"
spoke forth Waring, and he confronted
the twain in the arbor. "Forgive me.
miss, for my intrusion, but as soon as
I realized the damage I had done. I
hastened to repair it. Here, little fel
low. I've brought you half a dozen nice
brand new pipes."
. Ted fairly beamed at the prizes all
his own. The young lady smiled indul
gently. She murmured something
about her sister's child, his ecstatic de
votion to sending up the rainbow-tint
"You are a deserving little worker."
commended Waring, as he stood at the
spot where the basin of water was. He
was glad'to linsrer. It was a fair gar
den scene and its fairer queen of grace
and beauty fitted into it in a charm
ine way. "There's a patent bubble
blower I have In mind. Ted," spoke
Waring. "May I bring it to him?"
"You have been too kind and
thoughtful already," said Miss Blanche
The trifling event marked a change
In the life of Deane Waring. For near
ly a year he had squandered time and
money striving to work out an idea
that promised great results. He had
failed. He had blown many bubbles
of hope, endeavor and promise, only to
reach a block In .In* experiments.
Waring began to devote more atten
tion to the department In a great iron
and steel plant where he was employ
ed, almost completely ignoring his in
ventive specula!ions. Perhaps the fact
that the delivery of the toy pipe had
?o<l to n further call at the invitation
of Miss Tyndall, led to this result. His
visits did not seem unacceptable to
the charming srirl. who was interested
in him as much because he was a
dreamer ns that he was on the whole
a handsome and most estimable young
Waring dropped in upon these new
friends of his one evening to find Ted
propped np in a ehair with a piece of
flannel about his thri. it. It was hard
for the little fellow to be cooped in the
house, and Blanche was amusing him
by cutline out paper houses, animals,
and the like.
"Make me one of those curlicues
like you did last winter, auntie," said
Ted. "and I'M get mother to let me
try It on the kitchen stove pipe to
Blanche amiably began the task and
Waring admiringly watched her nimble
fingers transform a circle of paper into
t a long spiral. Then as Ted received
It and swayed It up and down Waring
uttered a sharp, quick ejaculation.
"I've hit it-I mean, you have!" he
cried. "Why, the very thing! Please
excuse me. Miss Tyndall, but your cur
licue here has given me a hint. I
must utilize it in my workroom while
the Inspiration Is on." and he left the
house aglow with the theme.
He told Miss Tyndall next day of
the valuable suggestion her casual pa

As we study this
history of motive
to right action, we
find that sometimes it is gratitude,
sometimes love, sometimes duty, some
times prudence, sometimes recogni
tion of man's sonshlp to God; but
here comes the motive of fear, and in
these days when men's hearts are fail
ing them for fear, it is a motive that
should receive some consideration
without impatience. Some of the mo
tives referred to above, and which
seem to have made the motive of fear
for a long time almost obsolete, have
according to the judgment of many
gone into the discard. As we Gnd
certain theories as to mankind in its
closer brotherhood and assumed son

may ask whether, after all, the motive
of fear may yet have an occasion for
In many American communities vice
today is rampant, unchecked, and such
communities are living in terror. Why?
because tho vicious olomont have no
fear of being punished, the action of
the courts and juries in the past show
ing that there is little likelihood that a
person, if ho assumes a proper atti
tude during triai or appeals to the sym
pathy of tho public and the jury, will
have to suffer. It ia simply a matter
of record that whore there is this lack
of fear vice flourishes.
Should We Fear God?
Let it be fully considered at once
that the fear of the Lord as presented
in the Scriptures is not chiefly an
emotion produced by threatened evils,
hut rather reverence of God and as a
motive it should operate along the
lilies of respect for God because he is
holy and reverent The fear of pain
connected with losing the favor or
friendship of God is in place, too, but
the moment that is admitted there
is admission of fear of another kind
fear as it is defined, "an emotion ex
cited by threatening evil or impending
pain, accompanied hy a desire to avoid
or escape it." There is a place for this
kind of fear of God in connection with
religious experience, and that motive
should have more recognition than in
the past. Why is this so?
First, because God is hack of every
law, the violation ot* which brings suf
fering or pain. Law (toes not operate
automatically. No evil resulting from
violated law is a blind thing; it is the
result of infinito wisdom and intelli
gent provision. God is behind every
Secondly, there are the clearest
teachings in tho Word of God that
evil will be punished by God. From
the moment it was said: "In the day
thou oatcst thereof, thou shalt surely
die," to tbe present moment, sin bas
boen punished. It is specifically said:
"The Lord shall reward tho doer oil
evil according to Iiis wickedness."
"The face of thc Lord is against them
who do evil, to cut ott the remem
brance of them from the earth." God
says, "I will punish the world for their
evil and the wicked for their iniqui
ties." "I myself will iiirht against thee
with an outstretched hand, and with a I
Strong arm, even in anger and in great
wrath." Several of the parables of
the New Testament teach tho retrib
utive wrath of God. It is God tho
judge who will say in the great judg
ment day: "Depart from me ye that
work in iniquity."
And. thirdly, the thought should bo
carried to the hereafter. Alon are
facing tho hereafter these days as not
before. More people have died in the
last three years than any three years
preceding, possibly excepting some
periods in the history of the world in
a time of pestilence. Millions are
slain on the battlefield, other million*
die in war-stricken countries by starv
ation, and other hundreds of thou
sands suiter violent death. What of
the future world as we contemplate
the multitudes sweeping into it?
Na Apology for "Hell."
When Jesus was sj leaking to his dis
ciples he did not make any apology
when he said "hell." He meant the
abode of tho wicked in the other I
world. The disciples vere to fear the
God who could cast both body and soul j
into hell, hut they were not to fear
man, who could only kill the body.
The "Mirrong city of destruction wns
a good place to leave, and Bunyan's
pilgrim left it as rapidly as he could.
We might ask, "Who in these days
fears the pain and hopelessness of
heil?" ~.ut the great fact is, hell re
u.nins, and the Word of God is plain
