THE BOW IN THE CLOUD.
All day Ions the clouds had lowered.
And the rain had swept the earth.
Till It lay all fair and lovely
As when ;xl first Rave It hlrth;
And the sunset splendor falling.
Set a rainbow in the sky:
And I learned life's hardest lesson
As the clouds were Uril'tin!; by.
For the radiant sunset jrlory.
KjillliiK on my raptured eyes.
As the clouds were lifi.-d. thrilled me
With a rare and ra-(t surprise.
I!ut if life were all fair weather.
As the lleetint; days so by.
We should never know the beauty
Of the rainbow In the sky.
As the sun seems all the l.riphter
Tor the troublous elouiis that rise,
Po our tears but ch ar our vision
1'or the rainbow's Kind surprise.
And our hearts nr.-all the pun-r
For the Father's chast. hint; hand.
While our faith srrows -l'uri-r. trusting
Where we cannot understand.
So if hearts were free from sorrow,
Kyes were nevr tilled with tears.
We should never know the rapture
When th Comforter apjx ars
When we rest upon His bosom.
As the passing moments roll.
And the Father's smile caresslnp.
Sets a rainbow in the soul.

from an irritated desire to j.-ain his at

The sweetness of lilac bloom filled the
silence that fell between them, (ierard
n menilercd many springs ago of pick
ing every blossom, and cutting the
Lushes, which were slender then, as
whips for himself and Henry. Despite
Jiis two j ears' juniority he was cvt r the
-one who rushed first into forbidden
things. He remeinlered also the pun
ishment that followed as it usually
did follow his many heedless acts of
mischief and of how, while he was still
smarting from acquaintance with the
3iloc whips which he had unwittingly
out for his own undoing, his father had
sought him again, and holding his hot.
wet, angry face against a broad shoul

day, and that he and Henry might go.
Then he remembered walking down
through tl.eorehard with small clinging
fingers clasped in large tender ones, and
tears dried by happy certainty that
after all his father was the liest father
in the world.
The blur passed from his eyes, and
Tie found himself looking at a picture
3iun above the sofa in an oval frame.
It had been taken during early man
3iood. but (ierard could trace strong re
semblance to the face last turned to
him in fatherly welcome. Reside it
vas the picture of a pretty young
voman wiih flowing curis his mother.
She had died while he was very young,
leaving him only a dream-like recol

A blur passed again before (ierard's
eyes. He could not see the tintype in
"Do you think that Henry will b?

"He has le"-n here through it all. Tie
came the day his fal her died."
The pronoun "his'' touched (Ierard.
It seemed to put him al an immeasura

without asking, he knew lay in Un

days far in the background. I'ntilthis
moment he had not realized with v.lia:
strong bonds home associations still
held him. The life of which he had
grown to think as narrow anil primitive
and slow now seemed to have held tie
essence of true existence. The rich

influence that extended wid"ly beyond

felt something keeping him back
something that stood between him and
the dead man. and that would not let
him look upon the qui"t face. And he
knew what it was. The estrangement
that had grown between two brothers
fronted him now like a visible tiling.
It was taunting him with its power to
hold him away it was reminding him
that his was the blame.
He remembered well how it began,
lie had come for a summer vacation.
and found at the old home : girl whom
Henry had brought as his fiancee a
gill delicate and shy. with the sweetest
smile in the world. And because of the
smile, because Miss Ann pi tied h'T.
and his father talked of her. and Henry
followed her with looks of devotion, he
had slipped into a way of tryinjj to
jilea.se her more than anyone else could
please succeeding so well that one day
Henry paused in the library door
with gray eyes blazing black in color
less face, and quivering lips hurling
such words as "traitor" and "scoun
drel" at the brother who stood thtis
holding a frightened girl in his arms
and giving back defiance for indigna
tion. There were tears from Miss Ann
and reproaches from the judge; Henry
shut the bitterness of a heart made void
into his.own room for days; the gir!
with the smile w ent back to her people,
and (ierard went also.
lint while with Henry it had lwen the
love of a life time, with (ierard it was
only a phase. His passion dulled with
distance: his letters grew less frequent,
and stoped altogether after one even
ing at a club reception when a pair of
magnificent black eyes looked into his
own. He married the eyes and a for
tune with them. The fortune investe i
had Iw-en manv times daubled, had
brought him the reputation of being a
peculator w ho always came out gilded,
but the eyes had brought hint only a
splendid creature, who threw over her
fan at some ballroom gallant such
smiles as she never bestowed uon her
husband after the novelty of married
life had worn 'dT. and left his grea
house to the devices of servants for
months at a time while she iiung her
self into the gayety of watering plaeo
and mountain resort, or visited some
foreign city of note. What disappoint
ment (ierard Iloynton might h:ie felt
concerning his marriage he accepted
with consciousness of a girl's smil?
chilled unto death and a brother's days
embittered lieeause of h:t faithlessness.
It was knowledge of leing in the
wrong that made Henry's intense,
pained words so rankle in his mind. He
had never forgiven that last interview
where such bald truths compelled his
ear. He had gone out from his brother
presence with a set aad sullen f ice, and
had never Sxken to him again. If tha
two chanced to meet on home visits they
avoided each other, and neither Mis
Ann nor the judge deemed it best to no
tice their averted eyes. I'nd-r stres.1

had spoken to (ierard of tlie Jong es
trangement. She hail touched upon
this subject often with Henry, but !m
always answered that he could not lut

one ilia! ion.
(ierard knew that the attitude of tnc
one injured had been his. After that
last interv iew ilp-re was no reproach in
his brother's manner, simply a waiting;
for such confession as was his due tj
r ive. (ierard's stublcirii pride had
refused this confession -but he was
making it to himself now with a bitter
sense thai wrong-doing brought ties

The fealt of the Karth.
In an old-fashioned hotue of New Or
leans there was a company at dinner,
and the ladies were discussing' the
woman question. A pentleman pres
ent, afber hearing all the pros and
cons, facetiously remarked that two
preachers were discussing the same
problem recently in his hearing, and
they both agreed that it portended
t-vil. and "that women were responsi
ble for most of the evil in the world
in fact, that women Avere worse than
men." One of the ladies indignantly
retorted: "Indeed, they are not; wom
en are the salt of th earth." 'Iat's
so. honey," put in oid Aunt Susan from
the kitchen; "dat's de Kible truf, for
bliore. Women Ls de sa't ob de earth.
Just think ob Lot's tvife." And every
body laughed at the sadden and unex
pected application of the old Bible
story. Chicago Chronicle.
