A little love goes very far
To smooth the daily care;
It gives a brightness to the earth,
A fragrance to the air;
A smile upon a loving face,
A word of kindness said,
The pressure of a gentle hanc
By these good works is sped.
But when a little love grows great,
And the once tinv stream
Into a glgrious river spreads,
All life becomes a dream;
From neck and arms the burden falls,
We're glad and swift and strong;
We grasp our duty's hardest stroke,
And clinch it with a song.
Then think, oh, friends! whom changeful
Have changeless bound to me,
How in the daily round of toil,
My feet should winged be;
I cannot wish my work were less,
Your love could scarce be more;
Swift labor sings within our home,
And strong love keeps the door.

BY CLYDE WAYNE.
Inez Gray stood in the doorway
of the old country homestead, and
a tear stole slowly down her cheek
as the twilight gathered about
her, and presently she left the
door and sat on the low bench
that stood in the shadow of the
honeysuckle that twined about
Here she leaned her head on the
railing, and hot tears fell fast and
convulsive sobs shook her slender
This place, the home so dear to
her heart; the place her father
loved as his life, was to be gold on
the morrow, and they, the aged
parents, be bereft of the dear old
home that had sheltered them for
twenty-five long years, and in
which so much bappiness baa
cme to them.
They loved every tree on the
place, and every flower and shrub
held a tender place in the hearts r
of these old people.
Each brought back a memory ~
of a son who had gone forever
from the hearthstone ; of a voico
for which they listened in vain
and a presence that had once filled
their homes with gladness. a
'Oh ! it was bitter! bitter !' and i
Inez thought of all this as she sat
alone on this June evening.
'Oh my father and mother! b
must you leave this dear old home
now when the sorrows of time h
have silvered your heads, and el
when you need more than ever,
the shelter of your home ? Oh
Wilbe", why did you leave me!
IFour-- yer ago sinet. we, stood
here in the doorway and you j
whispered, 'keep up courage, Inez,
my darling, and in only two short 1
years I will come to you, and we
will clear up this dreadful old
mortgage, and you will have your 1
home for always.' A b, Wilber! 14
that seems such a long, long time
ago! And then came the message tl
of the wreck at sea, and I felt h
that I would never see you again.
Oh, Wilber ! Wilber !'f
Around the supper table there
was unusual quiet on this the last
day in the old home.
The father and mother spoke
but little, and lnez felt a strange
choking as she glanced into the
dear wrinkled faces of the old
'Has any one been hero thist
evening, mother ?' she asked, pre- d
sently, 'I thought I saw some one
as I came in from my walk.'.
'Yes, dear! Thbe gentleman hold-h
ing the mortgage came in awhile
'Ob, how cruel to visit us with a
reminder of our loss!' Inez said, u
turning to her father. d
'No, my dear, Mr. Gates has
been very patient with me, and h
came in to say that he would de.- IL

Brother has kindly offered us a n
home, and you have the offer of a n
artuation a governess ini the fam.

provides, my child.'
'And the man who wants our
home is Mr. Roe. I would rather
any other come here. Thank
God for keeping me from such an
union.' And Inez left the room
with a bitter feeling in h'er heart.
And it was not strange she should
I will go back a few years, and
tell you how it all came about.
Allen Gray had only one child,
and was considered a well-to-do
farmer, and his home was one of
the prettiest in the neighborhood
When Inez was sixteen she was
sent off to school, where she re
mained four years.
During her absence an old
friend of her father's became in
volved in debt, and to relieve him,
and acting on the impulse of his
great heart. Allen Gray mort
gaged the old homestead as surety
for his unfortunate friend.
But the debt was never paid,
and when, on his deathbed, the
unfortunate man sent for his only
true and tried friend and gave in
to his- keeping his orphan boy,
Allen Gray promised to be a fa
rher to him.
Wilber was now at College, and
lid not hear of his father's death
,ill some weeks after, and then it
was through the friend who bad
ftood so faithfully beside his dy
Allen Gray struggled hard to
ay off the heavy debts that he
tad so nobly shouldered, but year I
fter year passed by and only a I
mall part had been paid off.
The golden tints of autumn I
vere just touching the leaves c
vhen Inez and Wilber arrived at
iome on the same day. Both had s
raduated with honors at their c
losing terms and Allen felt justly
roud as he introduced his 'chil- t
tren,' and added : l
'You are to say brother, Inez. t
le is my boy, you know.'
And down deep in her heart I
he felt a tender chord vibrate as e
he put up her fresh young lips
or the welcoming kiss. c
We pass over a few short L
aon ths of Autumn, and glance in
n the family group as they sit I
bout the blazing fire on this t
leak itecember night. a
Wilber has just learned of the bi
tate of the moi tgage, and a blush
f shame dyes his manly cheek, o
nd he reproves themr fo.r allow- n
ig him to live on in idleness C
rhile they have borne the burden 3
bat he feels should have been t
orne by himself. c
He has averred his intention to f~
save them and seek in foreign ti
limes the means to save the home s
3at is so dear to them all.s
Inez sits on the low stool be- c
de the fire and listens to all his b
lans, but not a word escapes her w
ps. - b
OccasionRlY she toys -nervous- si
r with the leaves bf t,he book ly- d
ion her lap. -t
And so on the morrow he is to h
tave them and, with the know- 'a
idge of the near parting and b
mg months of separation, comes
3e new-found light of a love she 'a
as kept hidden in her heart. 1
It is not a brother love she feels b
>r the orphan boy her home has ti
2eltered, but a deep, pure, wo- ia
Lanly love that is felt but once in t
ie heart of woman.
It was late when the old folks e:
stired, and as Inez rose to leave a
rilber spoke to her.
'Stay a moment, siste:-. I wish a
speak to you,' he said, rolling ft
is low lounge before the fire, and le
rawing her down beside him.
A feeling of the utter loneliness te
store f'or her overcame her as
e did so, and she burst into tears, si
he took her hands. h
'Oh, Wilber whby must you leave k
3? The old home will be so
reary to us all.' g
'Inez,' he said, as she withdrew 8
er hands, 'do you ask why I go ? e

iought you would understand me.
is hard to leave you all ; harder la
ian I would willingly bear were tI

She did not reply, but, with
her head buried in her arms, she
He raised her i.earful face to
his as she lay there.
A strange shivcr ran through
his frame as he said
'And while I am away some one
may come and rob me of my
sister, Inez. How can I leave you.
A sob was his only answer,
and he sat silent for some mo
ments while there seemed to be a
struggle going on in his heart.
At length she raised her head
and turned to him saying:
'No, Wilber; when you come
back you shall find me as I am tr.
night. No one will ever take
your sister from you.'
'Listen, Inez' he said. 'I must
speak ! I can no longer keep bid
den the secret of my. heart. I
love you, Inez, fa", far, more than
a brother ever loved an own and
only sister. I love you as my
very life and-you do not turn
from mo-can I hope for a nearer
place in your. heart than that of
The blue eyes looked straight
into his own, as she answered.
'Yes, Wilber, more than a
brother's love you have. And
when you return you will find my I
welcome to the same old home I
you are leaving now.'
'Thank you, Inez, for those
,words. God hasten the day when
we can again sit around this fire- I
side and call it our own.'
And he had gone forth from J
,he roof that held the dearest f
,reasure the world holds for any i
nan. A true woman and her true

letermined to win in life's battles.

The sudden joy of the romen
was so great that words failed
them both, but at last they go i:
to the dear old mother and father
who alternately weep and em
biace the new found son.
And then he told them how il
all came about that he had been
saved. 'I was picked up by a
passing vessel and had not reach
ed port when I was stricken with
yellow fever, and for many
months could hear nothing of the
fate of my mates. Then when I
was able the Captain offered me a
position on board his ship, and
for two years I remained at the
helm. I wrote many times, but
could bear no tidings of you. In

merchant who offered me a good

'Thank God for them both,'

And there was indeed a happy
roup around the fireside that

Lome was redeemed.

WOODEN SioEs -One of. the
most striking sights that take the
attenticn of the traveler in Japan,
is that of the wooden sandals
worn by the thirty-five millions
of people. These sandals have a
separate compartment for the
great toe, and make a clacking
noise on the street. Straw slip
pers are also 'a orn, and a traveler
starting out on a journey will
strap a supply. of them on his
back, that he may put on a new
pair when the old is worn out.
They cost but a cent and a-haif a
pair. They arc rights and lefts,
and leave the foot free to the air
-we never see those deformities
of the foot in Japan whbich are so
frequenit in this country. They
are never worn in the house, be
ing left outside the door ; passing
down street, you see long rows of
them at the doors old and new,
large and small. It is surprising
to see how rapidly the Japs step
out of them, and pick them up
again with their feet, when leav
ing the house.
