A few months nfter my father's death
the infant son, who had been pining him
self ill for "papa." was lying one night
in bis mother's arms. On the nest
morning she said to her sister, "Alf is
going to die." Tlie child bad no definite
disease, but was wasting away, and it
was argued to her that the returning
spring would restore the health lost dur
ing the winter. "No," was her answer.
"He was lying asleep in my arms last
night, and William (her bnsband) came
to me and said that he wanted Alf with
him. but that I might keep Coo other
two." In vain she was assured that she
hail been dreaming: that it was quito
natnral that sue should dream about her
husband, and that her anxiety for the
child had given the dream its shape.
Nothing would persuade her that she
had not seen her husband or that the in
formation he had given her was not true.

when in the following March her arms
were empty and a waxen form lay life
