The fime ws a cold October after
noon. " ' '"
The place "was a lonely junction wait
ing room in noi thern Michigan.
. The people of the drama were an old
lumberman, in ."store clothes" and a
young man whose apparel proclaimed
the city: v ';' , 1 J" ' :: "
'' Anf then there was a rongh Jine box,'
about six feet long, on a track outside.
Perhaps that might have been called
"the properties.' ; : -... ,; ; ,.
;There is no more desolate place than
he,.SanIt Ste. Marie junction, and it
was raining Jhat afternoon. There is a
dirty little station and the train dis
pa tchcr'-s house on one side of the main
track. Opposite is a deserted log cabin.
There is nothing else to be seen. In
rammer the commonest flowers shun the
spot. The qld man with the crape on
his hat sat looking oat at the box on the
truck. The young commercial traveler
Or advance agent, or whoever he was,
stared vacantly fit his companion. The
time passed .slowly and drearily. Once
a freight train rattled by. . The young
man got all the enjoyment he could out
of that and ruefully viewed the caboose
fading away into the fog,
At length, as if compelled to speak,
the old man said: "Say, I hate t' see th'
rain fall on that 'ere coffin so. They
oughter made th' caveses t' this yere sta
tion bigger. I tried to bring him in, but
that truck's too wide. Jim was a fine
boy, he was, afore he went up t' Mar

onnateral fer him t' want ter go. There
hain't nothin to keep a bright boy t'

but my ole sawmill an th' store. But, O
Lord, I wisht he'd a staid I wishthe'd a

in one o' them tough iron towns. I
ain't a-blamin Jim fer leavin me. Eut
he was all I had. He didn't know how
much I wanted him t stay or he'd 'a
done it. He didn't have no sort o' raisin.

he mus' go away. He goes up t' Marquette

was sick in a measly boardin house. Us

him through, an I took him home. He
got good an well again. He said he'd

He runned off one night. I didn't care
fer what he took, if he'd only a com'

come home, on, and I kep' a-srndin it
but I had ter go fer my Toy. He v,v.s

The Fotn: c of Grprre.
It i3 impossible to Isave intercourse
with modern Gr -eks without being
touched with some dvgree of the enthu
siasm which inspires them in discussing
the f nture of their country, or without
sharing the confidence with which they
approach it. It may le true that the
people are of hybrid race, that little of
the old Hellenic Mood flows in their
veins, but few European nations of note,
our own perhaps Jeast of all, can boast
unmixed descent. There is: that in the
air this people breathe, in the language
they speak, the land they live in, which
is of the very spirit of liberty.
One meeting a countryman on the road
accosts him as "patriote," a term of more
significance, of larger meaning than
"citizen." But they are a people deeply
democratic and require gentle handling
to 6teer liberty clear of the shoals of li
cense. Murmurings against the growth
of taxation are already heard, and the
extraordinary activity of the press in
sures the publicity of every unpopular
act of the administration. Blackwood's
Magazine. ;'T" :
Astrology of the Day.
Astrology seems to be gaining iu pop
ularity, and many are turning to it for
pointers concerning the fate that is in
store for them. Meteorologists are con
sulting the planets in relation to changes
in the wjeather, and scientists are " seri
ously discussing the probability, or even
possibility, of the larger planets exert
inc an influence on the earth Rnflfirient
I to affect conditions of life or health. ' '
t Astronomtrs do not believe in astrol
ogy, but are willing to trive the
science credit for: assisting to develop
the science of astronomy. Long before
there was an interest taken Sn astronomy
there were many careful observers of
the heavenly bodies. -The names chosen
by these men for stars and constellations
remain unchanged, Edgar Lee in Arena.
'the Date For the Millennium.
Charles T. Russell ' of Alleghany, Pa. ,
announces that the millennium will
surely arrive in October of 1914. We are
now in the "lapping time," between the
hay of the gospel and the, grass of the
millennium era. This "lapping time"
began in October of ISM and will last
40 years.. Durinjr , this .weriod the king

Those who 'believe that' one of the 10
