Tho window looked out on tho street.
Through the window ho used to watch
tho people passing by; although only
their foot could be seen, yet by tho
boots Martin Adam recognized their
owners. Martin Adam had lived long
in ono place, nnd had many acquain
tances. Few pairs of boots in his
district had not been in his hands
once nnd again. Somo he would half
sole, some ho would patch, some ho
would stitch around, nnd occasionally their bnby boy last week. His death

woni. 11 nc can unisn an order ny a
certain time, ho accepts it: if not he
will not deceive you, he tells you fo
beforehand. And all knew Adam,
and he was never out of work.
Adam had always been a good man;
but ns he grow old begau to tliinknioro
about his soul, and get nearer toGod.
Martin's wife had died when ho was
still living with his master. His wifo
left him a boy three years old. Mono
of their other children had lived. All
the eldest had died in childhood.
Martin at first intended to send his
little sou to his sister in the village,
but afterwards ho felt sorry for him:
ho thought to himself, "It will bo hard
for my Kapit to live in a strange fami
ly. I shall keep him with me."
And Adam left his master, and went
into lodgings with his little son. But,
through God's will, Adam had no
luck with children. As Kapit grew
older, he began to help his father, and
'Would have been a delight to him,
but fell Bick, went to bed, Buffered a
week, and died. Martin buried his
son, and fell into despair. So deep
was this despair, that ho began to
complain of God. Martin fell into
such a melancholy state, that more
than once he prayed to God fordcath,
and reproached God because ho did
not take him who was an old man, in
stead of his beloved son. Adam also
ceased to go to church.
And once a little old man, a fellow
countryman, came to Trinity to see
Adam: for seven years he had been
absent. Adam talked with him, nnd
began to complain about his sorrows.
"I hnva nn mnrn rlnsim in l!vi " hp I
said: "I only wish I was deud. That '
iB all I pray God for. I am a man
without anything to hope for now."
And the little old man said to
"lou Hon t talk right, .Martin: wo
must not judge God's doings. The
world moves, not by your skill, but
by God's will. God decreed for your
son to die, for you to live. Con
sequently, it is for the best. Aud you
aro in despair, because you wish to live
for your own happiness."
"But what shall one live fort" ask
And the little old man said. "Wo
must livo for God, Martin. He gives
you life, and for his sake you must
live. When you begin to live for him,
you will not grieve over anything, and
all will seem easy to you.
Martin kept silent for a moment,
and then says, "But how can one livo
for the sake of God!"
And the little old man said, "Christ
has taught us how to live for God.
You know how to read. Buy a
Testament, and read it: there you
will learn how to livo for God. Every
thing is explained there."
And these words kindled a firo in
Adam's heait. And he went that very
same day, bought a Now Testament
in largo print, nnd began to read.
At first Adam intended to read only
on holidays; but as ho began to read,
it so cheered his soul that ho used to
read every day. At times ho would
become bo absorbed in reading, that
nil tho kerosene in the lamp would
bum out, and still ho could not tear
himsolf away. And the more ho read,
tho cloarer he understood what God
wanted of him, and how one should
live for God; aud his hoart constantly
grow easier and easier. Formerly
wlion ho lay down to sloop, ho used
to sigh aud groan, and always think
of his Kapit; aud now ho only ex
claimod, "Glory to theo! glory to thee,
Lord! Thy will bo dono."
And from that tiuio Adam's wholo
life was chuuged. lit other days ho,
too, used to drop into a saloon, as u
holiday amusement, to drink a cup of
tea; aud he was not averse to a httlo
brandy cither. He would tako u
drink with some acquaintance, nnd
leave tho saloon, not intoxicated ex
actly, yet in a happy frame of mind,
and inclined to talk nonsense, uud
shout und uso abusive language at u
person. Now ho left off this sort of
thing. His life became quiet and
joyful. In the morning he sits down
to work, finishes his allottod task, and
takes tho little lamp from the hook,
puts it on the table, gets his book
from the shelf, opens it, and sits down
to read. And the mora ho reads, tho
more he understands, and the bright
er and happier it is in his heart.

nay. Sh looked st them again some

on n yield of W pounds (ij ounces of
