Then I rushed off to find Martha,
who is our head servant, and, 1 some
times suspect, our real housekeeper,
though she lets me have all the honors.
Martha, who had lived with my grand
mother, had known Mr. Tom, but had
thought he died long ago. She was
very willing, however, to help me in
getting one of the prettiest rooms
ready for "Miss Elizabeth," and prom
ised dainties for the feast of welcome.
At the eleventh hour papa resolved
to go himself and bring the orphan
girl to her new home, and Murtha and
1 had full scope for our hospitable
plans. It was not that 1 had anything
to do, for with our small family Martha
declared she had hird work to keep
the servants bnsy, iu spite of the size
of the house, but I liked to fuss about
and select pretty ornaments and trim
mings for my cousin's room.
Perhaps 1 threw myself into these
preparations with more energy, be
cause I had never quite recovered from
the heartache it gave me to part with
Herbert Wilson. Two years before
papa had sent him oft to seek his for
tune, and I lived meantime on the hope
of his finding it. It was a romantic
little love story, and, being so much
alone, I had suffered more than papa
knew, so I was glad to think of having
a eorar anion of my own age.
She came with papa, and rushed into
mv arms, apparently as pleased as I
was. I had pulled down my face to
express my sympathy with her recent
less but it was wasted sentiment She
did not appear to bare any feeling about
it, and longer acquaintance convinced
me that she had no depth of feeling
But she was charming, a little, fairy

strawberries and cream. I f lt gigan
tic when 1 sa our reflections in a long
mirror, for I was tall, decidedly bru

the younger, looked five years older
than the child-like little butterfly.
It was pretty to see how she enjoyed
the luxuries about her. the dainty food,
the cozy ami chairs, and, above all, the
idleness. Poor little mitel She had

one came a little box, such as I had
twice 1 cfore opened. And on the pink
cotton a dainty- crystal ejf. Two lay
in my jewel box; one with a tiny
locket, one with a g'olden cross inside.
I opened this one. My heart pave one
sh-kenin-; throb and the whole room
seemed to reel about me- U'h;'n my
sijrht was once more clear, I saw on
the pretty niuk cotton the rinjr I had
(fiven Herbert Wilson. There could be
no mistake. There it lay, ruock n me
with its tiny clasped hands and en
twined initials. He was faNe to me.
Some fairer face had won his heart,
and he had sent my ring back to ine.
It had never been my habit to show
my ftclinjrs on any occasion, so I closed
lip the pretty crystal ejr, locked it
away in my jewel box, and went down
todinaer. Father noticed that 1 was
ery pale, but accepted a trifling head
ache as an excuse, and Eizzie made no
comment. She was deep in the stndy

The next week was all a whirl.
Somehow 1 did man ace to push bak

very busy, and only at night could I
let my sorrow have its way. How
much I had loved, how perfectly I had
trusted Herbert, I learned in those
days when all ray love and trust
seemed thrnst back upon my own
heait The last drop was added to my
cop of misery the very day before
lizzie's wedding. Father came home
earlier than U3ual, and came to my

So it is th.it the giving of gifts at this
blessed season of renewed life has a
special meanin-r, and so -it would seem
that the gifts should be road : to con

sentiments are either written or en

Easter, as they are at all other seasons
to which special importance may be at
tached, and nuinleriess devices and de
signs are to be seen on every side, ltut
as the spirit of giving has seized upon
the popular mind, the card of to-day is
only the attendant of the gift itself. It
may be simple in the extreme, or elab

adjunct only, and has censed to be ia
itself an object of consideration.

A CAT'S REMARKABLE TRIP.

A good cat story comes from Bombay
In August a Liverpool resident pro
ceeding to I Him bay took out with him a
cat, which he intended to present to a
friend in India- Some days after the
arrival of the steamer in Bombay pussy
was raisseu, and though she was
searched for high and low she was no
where to be found, says the Yorkshire
Ircss. Her owner had quite given her
up for lost when he received intelli
gence from England that the cat bail
made her appearance at her old Liver
pool home on October 20 as calm and
collected as thengh a trip to India and
back was quite in the ordinary course
of her life- The facts are vouched for
by a Bombay paper, and there is no rea
son to doubt their substantial accuracy;
but it is not made clear whether
thereat was not stowed away in the
steamer in which i-be went out to India
and carried back in the ordinary course.

Foyal Baking powder
Is Absolutely Pure
WHILE there are so many alum baking pow
ders in the market, the use of which all
physicians decide render the food unwholesome
and liable to produce dyspepsia and other
nilments, housekeepers should exercise the ut-.
most care to prevent any powder but the Royal
from being brought into their kitchens.
In the use of Royal there is an absolute
certainty of pure and wholesome food.
The official State Chemists report: The 1
Royal Baking Powder does not contain am
monia, alum, lime, nor any injurious ingre
dients. It is absolutely pure and wholesome.
The Government reports show all other
baking powders to coiitain impurities.
In the use of any baking powder but Royal
there is uncertainty if not actual danger.
It is unwise to taks hances in matters of
life and health.
