Wife M.argaret and their daulghitolr

the exception of iJaniv, who was
a genoral favorito. He0r health
was far from good, and her pareIts
were reluctantly compolled to
abandon the idea of making bor a
govres Not wvitshing to r
inill idlo, the young girl som1io
time ago obtained employment in
u hat mlianufactory at $5 a week.
Until about three weeks ago the
Elliotts were living vory con
tentedly, the father, who was a
steady, hard-workin g man, earning
a salary suflicient ,to moet all their
wanlts, and Janio, who wN'as idoliz

At this timo their troiibles be

and after a fv fr-Iuitless eforts to
obtain another, lie gavo it up and

Mrs. Elliott, who disliked to soo
her daughter working, begged
her to abandon it, as hior' father
would n0011 obtain employment.
Jaio replied that it wias more
than ever necessary to work now,
and from that tim she bravely
Conitinued to su)port the family,

Under the pressuro of the troul

but though the inmates of the
house observed it, her daughter
was too much engrossed in the

little of' his time at hoio that the
gradual collapse of his wife's in

When Janie at length compre

malady she almost sank beneath
