AN ELEMENT OF LUCK
By LESLIE W, QUIRK.
HIS MOTHER'S HEART
WAS NOT MARBLE
The miracle of tho feeding of tho
five thousand marks a crisis In the
life of Jesus. (John C:15). The human
ity of Jesus Is shown In that as soon
as he had performed that mlraclo he
first sends away his disciples, then
sends away the multitude, while he
departs "Into a mountain to pray." To
pray the prayer of thanksgiving, to
pray for strength to withstand this
now tnmiStntlnn. (John 6:14. IB): to
,pray for those whom he had fed;
nM surelyjto pray for his chosen ones
that they might understand him and
Jesus had taken his dlsclplea into
the mountain for their own good.
(Mark 6:31) and now he sends them
away lest they yield to tho advice,
the Importunities, of tho crowd and
consort with them In their desire to
make Jesus a temporal rather than a
spiritual king. Such a course would
have precipitated matters. But in his
solitude as he prayed, Jesus was
watchful of his own.
Ho had sent them Into the storm
to avoid a greater danger, would he
not watch over them? So with many
a testing In our lives. They seen
severe, hut how little we know of the
greater danger we have missed. He
saw (v. 48) their distress long before
hnv finw their relief (v.49). Jesus
knew the need of prayer. Jesus knew
the need of solitary prayer as he must
pass this crisis, so It was that while
"he lingered in prayer they were dis
tressed till "the fourth watch," near
4 HI Considered Test.
It Is not strange that they did not
recognize Jesus. He often comes to
us In ways wo do not at first recog
nize, In ways that at first terrify us,
but he does not leave us long In sus
pense. We read, he "straightway"
rescued them "It is I; be not afraid."
Notice ho assures them flrBt who It Is
that Is near, "It is I." They recognize
the tones of his familiar volte and
then they were ready for his words
of confidence, "be not afraid." So God
speaks to us in tho hour of ouf
darkest trial, saying "Lor I am with
you always:" "be not afraid."
Prom the parallel account by Mat
thew (Matthew 14: 28-36) we read of
Peter's attempt to walk upon tho wa
ter. His rash and 111 considered test
of the reality of Jesus' presence. Then
we see him as he too compares him
self with the angry storm and taking
liis eyes off .of Jesus begins to sink.
Peter's sharp, piercing cry; his clear,
definite, appeal is at once answered
and Jesus leads him safely back into

they had been struggling, (John 6:19,

why so? It Is evident that even
those nearest to him did not appre
hend the true meaning of this miracle,
on the contrary their hearts were har
dened, e. g., blind
The real interpretation of Christ's
miracles Is not that we are to bo
amazed at the material manifestation
but that we are to seo the spiritual
lesson and application.
It was a different reception Jesus
received -when they reached Genne-
saret (vv. 63-56). There he is recog
"" nized at once. There they flock to
him with their sick 'ones and Mark
with a few deft strokes shows us the
picture of a vast deal of healing. None
is disappointed, for we read that as
many1 as touched him were mado
whole. His healing is not confined
today to a single person, nor limited
to a peculiar place or shrine.

Billy Wlnslow did net believe in
Now, as any gray-haired philo
sopher who lives and loves by rulo-of-thumb
will admit, there really Is
no such thing as luck. Perhaps there
Isn't, But Billy Wlnslow was not old
enough to bo gray-haired, and he did
not live nor love by rule-of-thumb.
Hence his constant observations on
the subject were tiresome.
Today his dissertation on luck had
been particularly positive and pro
longed. So long had ho denied the
possibility of chance, indeed, that not
once in tho whole afternoon had he
found time to propose to Helen
Thurlow. Tho oversight carried Its
sting. Any girl finds pleasure in lis
tening to a proposal, even when, as
In this case, tho man proposes some
two or threo times a day on an aver
age, only to be politely but dimpling
ly rejected. Down in her heart Helen
Thurlow loved Billy Wlnslow, and
meant In the fullness of time to Ray
"But don't you think, Billy," she
asked finally, "that sometimes luck,
or chance, or fate"
"Ah, fate," Interrupted Billy, "is
quite another thing. If It is ordained
that a thing is to be, some power
works for that end. But the act,
while it may seem the veriest dip of
luck, Is really nothing of the kind.
Now, if we go back into the history
of the ancients "
"Please," pouted two pretty lips,
"please let's keep to the present.
Now, Billy, what were you about to
And Billy, being neither gray
haired nor guided by rule-of-thumb
In his loving, forgot ancients and
luck, and proposed again.
"I I don't know what to answer,"
said Helen, looking a little startled,
as if this were the first time. 'T am
not sure I love you enough to marry
you. But, Billy" and her faco light
ed roguishly "If you are certain
that we are merely the playthings of
fate, I am willing to leave my answer
to to luck."
This was striking in a wholly un
fair and poignant manner.
"Well," said Helen, "tonight I
shall go to" my desk and write you
two notes. One will be an acceptance
of your proposal and one a rejection.
I shall inclose both in similar en
velopes, with nothing to indicate
which Is which. Then I shall shuffle
them fairly oh, quite fairly, Billy,
that no -telepathy of mine shall In
terfere with that-Whlch is to be and
one I shall stamp and mail to you,
and one I shall toss Into the fireplace,
without opening to know which has
gone to, you, and "
"Helen! You're Insane! You'll do
nothing of tho kind! Love Is too
sacred to trifle with In this fashion;
I won't allow It."
"But, Billy, some power will work
for the proper end that has been or
dained. You have Just said so your
self. You know, Billy, there Is no
such thing as luck. Now, not a word.
Here's your hat. Tomorrow morn
ing, when your mall comes, you will
find my note. Good-bye and" she
could -not resist the final boon of the
last taunt "good luck!"
For a man who had not been ac
cepted yet the hour of Billy's call
tho next morning was little short of
scandalous. But early as he was,
Helen was waiting for him. She met
him at the door, and after he had
swung It to,. that the curious world
outside might not share in his happi
ness, he took her In his arms without
a word. For a long minute neither
of them spoke. Then Billy lifted the
girl's face to his.
"It's yes," he declared, not as a
question, but as the repeating of a
"It's fato, Billy," whispered the girl.
Her whole faco was wreathed in a
smile of contentment.
After they had talked of many other
things, the girl said abruptly:
"I think, Billy, I must have been
mad yesterday to leave the decision
to luck that Is, fato. After you had
gone, and I had written the notes, I
began to grow afraid. But I was
stubborn enough not to give up the
silly plan, and I burned one and
mailed the other. Then, Billy, I be-
tgan to wonder what you would think
of me, and whether you mightn't stop
loving me altogether; and I lay on
the bed and cried myself to sleep.
I you'll forgive me, won't you,
"Forgive you! il was my fault,
Helen. I suspect I've been a babbling
fool with my theories. I am tho one
who was to blame, because I gpaded
you into making the test to open my
eyes. I well, girlie, after this I am
fjotng to, admit there is aft' element
of luck In what we do. Shall we for
get the whole wretched business?"
But she seemed not to have heard
"I was Jesting, Blllyj you know
(hat After I had mailed tho note to
you, I thousht of the horrible possi
bility of your taking it seriously, of
your considering it as my final an
swer," ''You moan you wore afraid you
had sont the wrong note?"i
"I was Jesting, I tell you. But,
Billy, I was afraid you mightn't un
derstand. J was mocking you for
your belief In fate, I Billy, 1 hardly
dare confess it now for fear you won't
want me, but I wrote both of the
notes exactly alike."
"I think," said Billy Wlnslow.

THE WOMAN THAT
CROSSED HIS PATH
Young Jack, who as usual had risen
at a dlsroputnbly early hour, rushed
Into the dining room as the rest of
the family was breakfasting. A rap
turous expression was on his face,
and In his arms was a tiny, nonde
script puppy, blind, and with a rest
less, inquiring nose.
Mother! Just lookl Isn't he n
beauty? A horrid old man waB going
to drown him I"
A chorus of ejaculations arose.
"Aw, ain't ho cute?" came from
Billy, two years younger than Jack.
"He's a fine little fellow," agreed
Jack's father. "Seo tho way he's nos
ing at the button of your coat."
"Another dawg!" exclaimed Hulda,
as she brought in the bacon. But
she stoppod long enough to tickle the
temptingly soft brown head that
bobbed helplessly over Jack's arm.
"Ain't ho nice, mother!" inquired
Jack, anxiously, sensing something
ominous in his mother's silence.
"Charming I" said Jack's mother,
with unaccustomed satire. "What do
you propose to do with him?"
Why why, keep him, of course,"
said Jack. "Poor little fellow, he
ain't got no home."
"That's very sad," said Jack's
mother, unsympathetlcally. "But I
am not going to have another dog
around the place. Dogs are dirty and
noisy and full of fleas, and I loathe
them; so you may as well make up
your mind to get rid of this little
Jack looked at his father appealing
ly. "Don't you think, Helen " began
"No, I don't think that I'll give in
again," Interrupted Jack's mother. "I
do think, however, that you have had
enough experience In adopting dogs
to last you for one summer. There
was that long-legged young St. Ber
nard the Caxtons gave you. It killed
twelve of the Franklin chickens, if
you remember, and you had to pay
for them at market prices. I thought
when the St. Bernard was poisoned
you woujd have learned discretion,
but you, had to bring home that pedi
greed fox terrier you said you got
at such a bargain."
"That was a good dog, though," de
clared Jack's father, "and I'd like to
get hold of the policeman who shot
him just because his license tag was
issued for a dog described as a St.
"I had hoped that incident would
mako you more careful about evading
tho law," said Jack's mother, "but,
nevertheless, you kept putting off get
ting a license for the collie you
brought homo to be a comrade to the
children until it bit the Collins child,
and the dog was shot, and you were
haled into court and fined for not
having licensed or muzzled the
"Anyway, Helen," said Jack's fath
er, "every boy ought to have a dog.
Let the kid keep it. I'll see that it
is licensed and cared for."
"I will not have another dog around
the place," insisted Jack's mother.
At this Jack deposited his new pet
upon the floor, and ran from the room
howling. Left to himself, the puppy
sprawled unhappily on the carpet,
feeling around with that pathetically
searching nose of his. Then, as if
conscious that It was alone in a cold,
unfeeling world, It set up a plaintive

father stirred uneasily.

he said at last. "I believe the little
He made overtures to tho pup with
a piece of bacon. The pup sniffed
tentatively at the morsel, and then
resumed its wailing with renewed
vigor. Jack's father regarded it
"Perhaps," he said, finally, "it isn't
old enough for bacon."
Something very like a giggle came
from Jack's mother's end of the table,
but when Jack's father looked up, his
wife was coldly putting bread Into
Billy's egg. Then Jack's father poured
some cream into a saucer and de
posited it under the pup's nose. The
whining continued. Very gently.
Jack's father thrust tho wabbly little
black nose fairly Into tho saucer, but
the obstinate owner wouldn't drink,
and the whine developed to a fright
ened yelp. Jack's mother left the
"I'm afraid you'll teally havo to go,
pup," said Jack's father, stroking the
fat little brown back.
At that moment tho' postman's
whistle sounded at the front door,
and Jack's father went to get his
mall. It was fully ten minutes before
ho returned. As he entered the room
ho gasped in astonishment. Jack's
mother was sitting cross-legged on
the floor feeding the little brown
puppy with milk out of one of Billy's

he caught sight of his father he cried,

tho grace to blush under her hus

said, apologetically. -Then, suddenly
she changed her tactics from the de
fensive to the offensive. "It's Just

Phllbank watched him cross to the

muttered, and drew near the parapet.
For a moment his muscles were taut
and then his body relaxed.
"I haven't got the pluck," ho said
with a groan, and ho despised himself
tho more for his cowardice.
He was about to turn away, when a
shrill cry could be heard some thirty
yards off, and a crowd quickly gather

river. He hurried along and asked
what had happened.
