OB, the story op a sister's bweet sympa
It was Commencement Day in G
High School. The people were pouring in
to the church as I entered it, Tather tardy
Finding the choice seats in the center of
the audience-room already taken, I pressed
lorward, looking to the right and to the
left for a vacancy. On the very front row
of seats I found one.
Here a little girl moved along to make
room for me, looking into my face with
large gray eyes, whose brightnest was soft
ened uy very long lasnes. llcr tace was
open and fresh as a newly blown rose be
fore sunrise. Again and again I found my
eyes turning to the rose-like face, and each
time tho gray eyes moved, half smiling, to
Evidently the child was ready to "make
up" with me. And when, with a bright
smile, she returned my dropped handker
chief, and I said "Thank you !" we seemed
lairly introduced. Utntr persons, now
coming into the scat, crowded me quite
close up against the httlo girl, so that we
soon felt very well acquainted.
"There's going to he a great crowd," she
said to me.
"Yes," I replied ; "people always like to
see how school-boys are made into men."
Her face beamed with pleasure and pride
as she said :
"My brother's going to graduateo he's
going to speak ; I've.brought these ; flowers
to throw to him."
They were not greenhouse favorites
just old-fashioned domestic flowers, such
aa we associate with tho dear grand
mothers ; "but," I thought "they will
seem sweet and beautiful to him for sister's
mat is my Drotner, sue went on
pointing with her nosegay.
"The one with the light hair?'
"Oh no," she said smiling and shaking
ner head in innocent reproof ; "not that
homely one, with red hair ; that havJ9-"ie
one with brown wavy hair. His eyes look
brown, too : but they are not they are
dark blue. There I he's got his hand up to
his head now, You see him, don't you ?"
In an eager way she looked uom nie to
him, and from him to me, as if some import
ant tate depended upon my identifying her
"I sec him," I said, "lie's a very good
"Yes, lie is beautiful," she said, with art
less delight: "and he's so good, and he stud
ies so hard, He has taken euro of me ever
since mamma died. Here is his name on
(he programme. He is not tho valedictor
ian, but he has an honor, for all that.'
I saw in the little creature's familiarity
with theso technical college terms that she
had closely identified herself with her broth
er's Btudies, hopes and successes.
"lie thought, at first,,' slio continued,
"that ho would write on the 'Romance of
What a strange sound theso long words
had, whispered from her childish lips! Her
interest in her brother's work had stamped
them ou tho child b memory, and to her
they were ordinary things.
"But then," she wenj on, "ho decided
that he would rather write on "Historical
Paralleles', and he's got a real good oration,
and he says it beautifully. Ho has said it
to me a great many times. I 'most know
it by heart. Oh t it begins so pretty and so
grand. This is tho way it begins," she
added, encouraged by tho interest sho must
hare seen in my face : " 'Amid the permu
tations and combinations of tho actors and
tho forces which mako up tho great kalei
doscope of history, wo often And that a
turn ot Destiny's hand' "

"Now, it's his turn," she said, turning to
me a face in which pride and delight and
anxiety seemed about equally mingled.
But when the overture was played through, ,
and his name was called, the ciiild seemed,
in her eagerness, to forget me and
all the earth besides him. 8h
rose to her feet and . leaned for
ward for better view of her
beloved as he mounted to the speaker's
stand. I knew by her deep breathing that
her heart was throbbing in her throat. I
knew, too, by the way her brother came up
to the steps and to the front, that he was
trembling. The hands hung limp ; hia
face was pallid, and the lips blue as with
cold. I felt anxious. The child, too,
seemed to discern that things were not well
with him. Something like fear showed
in her face.
He made an autotomatic bow. Then a
bewildered, struggling look came into hia
face, then a helpless look, and then he
stood staring varantiy, lik, somnambu

ments of painful suspense went by and

dismayed eyes upon mc. "He's forgotten
it," sho said. Then' a swift changocame
into her face; a strong, determined look;
and on the funeral-like silence of the room
broke the sweet, brave, child-voice :
Amid the permutations and combina
tions of the actors and the forces which
make up the great kaleidoscope of history,

Every body about us turned and looked.
The breathless silence ; the sweet, childish

childlike words produced a weird eflect.
liut the help had come too late; the un
happy brother was already staggering in
humiUiatioa .from the stage. The band
quickly struck up, and waves of lively
music were rolled out to cover the defeat.
I gave the little sister a glance in which
I ment to show the intense sympathy I felt;
but she did not see me. Her eyes. swim.
ming with tears, were on her brother's face.
I put my arm around her. She was too
absorbed to heed the caress and, before I
could appreciate her purpose,' she was on
her way to the shame-stricken young man
sitting with a face like a statue's.
When he saw her by his side, the set
face relaxed, and a quick mist came into
his eyc9. The young men got closer to
gether to make room for her. She sat
down bside him, laid her flowers on his
knee, and slipped her hand in his.
I could not keep my eyes from the sweet,
pitying face. I saw her whisper to him, he
bending a little to catch her words. Later,
I found out that she was asking him if he
knew his "piece" now, and that he answered

and pressed through the throng of profes
sors and trustees and distinguished visitors,
up to the collego president.
"If 'ou please, sir," she said with a little
courtesy, "will you and the trustees let my
brother try again? He knows his piece
For a moment, the president stared at her
through her gold-bowed spectacles, and
then, appreciating the child's petition, he
smiled ou her, and went down and1 spoke
to the young man who had failed.
So it happened that when the band h ,
again ceased playing, it was briefly an-'
nounced that Sir." would now deliver
his oration "Historical Parallels."
"Amid the permutations and combina
tions of the actors and the forces which
Muke up the great kaleidoscope of his
tory ." This the little sister whispered
to him as he rose to answer the summons.
' A ripple ot heightened and expectant
interest passed over the audience, and then
all sat stone still, as though fearing to
breatho lest the speaker might Hgain take
fright. No danger I The hero in tho youth
was aroused. He went at his "piece" with
a set purpose to conquer, to redeem himself
ami to bring the smile back into the child's
tear-staiued face. I watched the face dur
ing the speaking. The wide eyes, the
parted lips, the whole rapt being said that
the breathless audience was forgotten, that
her spirit was moving with his.
And when the address was ended with
the ardent abandon of one who catches en
thusiasm iu the realization that he is fight
ing clown a wrong judgment and conqner
ing a sympathy, the effect was really thril
ling. The dignified audience broke into
rapturous applause; boouets intended for
