He saw me. And, oh, liow I did love
the look that came to his face; it was
so surprised and glad, and said, "Oh I
You!" In such a perfectly lovely way
that I choked all up and wanted to
cry. (The idea !-ery when I was so
glad to see him!)
The next minute he had drawn me
dat or tde une, and we were both talk
tug at once, and telling each other how
glad we were to-see each other.
But he Was looking for Mother-
know he was; for the next minute aft
or be saw me, he looked right over my
head at the woman back of me. And
all the while he was talking with me,
lils eyes would look at me and then
leap as swift as lightning first here,
and then there, all over the hail. But
be didn't see her. I knew -he didn't
see her, by-the look on his face. ,And
pretty quick I said I'd have to go.
And then he said:
"Your mother-perhaps she didn't
-did she come" - And his face grew all
red and rosy as he asked the question.
And I said yes, and she was waiting,
and that was why I had to go back
And he said, "Yes, yes, to be sure,"
and, "good-by." But he still held my
hand tight, and his eyes were still rov
ing all over-tie hose. And I had to
tell him again that I reall had to go;
and I had to pul. real. determined at,

cried all the more, and shook her head
and began again, all choked up.
She said this little dress was the
I one she wore at the big reception
I where she first met Father. And she
r was so proud and happy when Father
--and he was fine and splendid and
handsome then, too, she said-singled
her out, and Just couldn't seem to stay
away from her a minute all the eve
ning. And then tour days later he
asked her to marry him; and she was
still more proud and happy.
And she said their married life, when
they started out, was Just like that
beautiful dress, all shining and spot
less and perfect; but that It wasn't

She said things went on worse and
worse--and it was all her fault. She
grew sour and cross and disagreeable
She could see now that she did. But
she did not realize at all then what
she was doing. She was -Just thinking
of herself-always herself;:her rights,
her wrongs, her hurt feelings, her
wants and wlshes. .She never once
thought that he had rights and
wrongs and hurt' feelings, maybe.
She said a lot more--oh, ever so
much more; but I can't remember It
all. I know that she went on to say
that by and by the tarnish began to
dim the brightness of my life, too:
and that was the worst- of all, she
said-that Innocent children should
suffer, and their younglives be spoiled
by the kind of living rd had to have,
with this wretched makeshift of a di
vided home. She began to cry again
then, and begged mfe to forgive her;

grew sober again, and his eyes began
to rove all around the room.
He took me to a little seat in the
corner afterward, and we sat down
and began to talk--only Father didn't
talk much. He just listened to what
I said,- and his eyes grew deeper and
darker and sadder, and they didn't

just stared fixedly at 'nothing, away

I. Nehemiah Learns of the Distress
of the Captives (vv. 13).
1. When (v. 1). Twentieth year of
the reign of Artaxernes (2:1).
The month Chlsleu corresponds to
our December. It was while perform
ing his duty as cupbearer to the Per
sian king. While in this important
position there entered into his heart
a desire to honor God and do go~l to
his people. A young man can be true
to God in any position in life it he
sets his heart on Jesus Christ and
communes with Him by prayer and
study of God's word. A man may
be elevated to a high position, prosper
in business, and yet live a life un
spotted from the world.
2. By Whom (v. 2). His brother
Hanani and certain men of Judah
brought him the news. His inquiry
'shows that though he was prosperous
he did not forget his unfortunate breth
ren. We should never let our success
and well-being shut out sympathy for
the oppressed and suffering.
3. The Nature of the Distress (v. 8).
The wall of Jerusalem was broken
down. Its gates were burned with
fire and the remnant of the captives
were in great afiiction and reproach.
II. Nehemiah's Sorrow (v. 4).
The news of his brethren's distress
greatly moved Nehemiah. He sat
down and wept and mourned several
days. He fasted and prayed before
God. God's people are so essentially
one that the aflmiction and shame of
the one is the afiliction and shame of
all. No one will ever do much to help
a distressed people who does not deep
ly feel their desolation. Nehemiah's
sorrow was not the kind that says "I
pity you" and goes on in ways of sel
fishness without m*ning an efCat to
bep- True pity expresses tsetlf In an
efert to hel.
He knew where to go ifor bep. He
toot te matter upon his heart to God
in prayer. *he first and best way to
help others is to pray for them. Nele
