accidents. As thero is u law of storms
in tho natural world, so thoro is a
law of trouble, a law of disaster, a
law of misfortune; but tho majority
of tho troubles of lifo aro imaginary,
and tho most of thoso anticipated
never come. At any rate, thero is no
cause of domplaint against God. Seo

Into a despondency that ill fits htm
for duty. I planted two rosebushes
tn my garden; thc one thrived beau
tifully, tho other perished. I found
the dead ono on tho shady side of tho
house. Our dispositions, like our
plants, need sunshine. Expectancy
of repulso is tho cause of many sec
ular and religious failures. Fear of
?lander and abuso has often invited
all the long-bcaksd vultures of scorn
and backbiting. Many of tho misfor

courageously meet thom.
How poorly preparod for religious

the gloom of expectod misfcrtunol If
ho prays, he says: "I do not think I

that her father, Thomas Chalmers, in
tho darkest hour of tho history of
tho Ifreo church of Scotland and when
the woes of the land seemed to weigh
upon his heart, said to his children:
"Come, lot us go out and play ball or
fly kite," and tho only difficulty In
tho play was that tho children oould
not keep up with their father. Tho ,

Again, tho habit of borrowing
.trouble ls wrong because it has ti
tendenoy to mako us overlook pres
ent blessing. To slake man's thirst
tho rook is cloft and cool waters leap
Into his brimming cup. To feed his
hunger the fields bow down with
bending wheat, and the cattlo como
from the clover pastures to give him
milk, and tho orchards yellow and
ripen, oasting their juicy fruits into
bis lap. Alas, that amid such exuber

as though he were a soldier on half
rations or a sailor on short allow

deep In harvests looking forward to
famine; that ono .should feel tho
Strong pulses of health nutrching
with regular tread through all tho
avenue of lifo and yet tremble at tho
ex.peot.ort assault of sickness; that a
man should sit in his pleasant home,
fearful that ruthless want will some
day rattle thc broken window sash
with tempest and sweep the coals
frotn tho hearth and pour hunger
Into tho broad tray; that a man fed
by Him who owns oil the harvests
should expect to starve; that one

Thoro is a sooioty that has for its
motto thoso word:s "If you havo a
kindnoss shown you paso it on." Thoro
is a sermon in a fow words. Thoro aro

Many Christians think it a bad sign
to be jubilant, and thoir work of self
examination is a hewing down of their
brighter experiences. Like a boy with
a new jackknife, hacking everything
ho comes'across, so their sci f-oxamina
tion is a religious cutting to pieces of
the greenest things they can lay their
hands on. They imagine they arc do
ing God's service when they aro going
about borrowing trouble, and borrow
ing it at 30 per cent., which Is always
a sure precursor of bankruptcy.
Again, tho habit of borrowing trou
ble is wrong bcoause the present is suf
ilclcntly taxed with trial. God Bees
that wo all need a certain amount of
trouble, and so he apportions fit for nil
the days ?md year? of our ltfe; Also
for the policj' of gathering it all up for
tone day or ycart Cruel thing to put
upon tire back of one camel all the
cargo intended for the entire caravan.
I never look at my memorandum book
to see what engagements and dutioi
are far ahead; Let every week bear ita
own burdens. Tho shadows of to-day
ore thick enough. Why invpiore thc
presence of 'Other shadows? Tho cup
is already distasteful. Why halloo to
disaetors far distant to oome and
wring out more gall in tho bitterness?

Hero aro business men just able to
manage affairs as they now are. They
can pay their rent and meet thoir notes
and ruanago affairs as they now aro,
but how if a panic should como and
my investments should foil? Go to
morrow and write on your daybook
or on 3'our ledger, on your money safo:
"Sufficient unto tho day is tho evil
thereof." Do not worry about notes
that' are far from due. Do not pije up
on your counting desk tho flnanoial
anxieties of tho next 20 years. The
God who hos taken caro of your world
ly occupation, guarding your store
from tho torch of the inoondlary and
the key of thc burglar, will be as faith
ful in 1010 ns in 1001. God's hand is
might.Iw .than tho machinations of
stock gamblers or thc plots of polltioal
demagogues or the right arm of revo
lution, and the darkness will fly and
the storm fall dead at his feet.
So there are persons in feeble health, "
and they are worried about the fu
ture. They niako out very well now,
but they aro bothering themselves
about future pleurisies and rheuma
tisms and neuralgias and fevers. Their
eyesight Is feeble, and they aro wor
ried unless they entirely lose it. Their
hearing is indlstinot, and they nro
alarmed lest they beoomo entirely
deaf. They feel chilly to-day and ar?
expecting nn attack of typhoid. Thoy
have been troubled for wacks with
some perplexing malady and dread be
coming lifelong Invalids. Tako care
of your health now nnd trust God for
thc future. Be not guilty of the blas
phemy of asking Him to take caro of
you While you sleep with your windows
tight down or eat chicken salad at ll
o'clock at night or sit down on a cake
of loo to cool off. lio prudent, and
then be oonfldent. Samo of the slckost
pooplo have boon tho most useful. Ifc
was so with Payson, who died deaths
daily; and Robert Hall, who used to
stop in the midst of Ms sermon ?nd

and then go on again. Theodora Fre
llnghuysen had a great horror of dying
UH the time came and then went peace

Again, the habit of borrowing mis
fortune Is wrong beoausa it unfits us
for it when it actually does come. We
cannot always have smooth soiling,
Life's path will sometimes tumble
among declivities and mount a eteop

of silver. Human scorn will try to
crucify us between two thieves-. We
will hear the iron goto of thc sepulcher
creak and grind ns it shuts in our
kindred. But we cannot gotroady for
these things by fovbodlngs. They who
light imaginary foes will com? out of

they come tinder the guns of real mis

Dora, ag tho six cousins started for

The next day the count arrived with

his companion. In the evening tho two

After the Introductions there fol

languid effort on tho part of Hello to

fectual attempts by Helen and Lona to

Marj- soon found herself in conversa
tion with tho private secretary, who
was slightly taller than the count.
Soon thoy were joking, away with tho
utmost freedom. VYhdn Fannie took
tho count's arm and swept out on
tho broad veranda for a promenade,
giving the other gitl&.a glance of tri

sweetly to Mr. Schwartz: .

and offered his arm for a promenade.
BDuring tho days that followed the

intiuiaoy was duly approved of by the

with the count, although ho took Helen
riding and alway? danced moro with
Helle, but she was by all odds the best
dancer, while the prlvato secretary
and Mary found themselves thrown to
gether a great dasi. Ho liked hor
sharp tougub aud Unconventional
comments. The mammas of tho party
were reconciled (Mary's mamma wa?
dead), and they even commented that
"lt would bo just Uko Mary to marry
some seorotary or somebody who had
neither money nor position-but dear
knows, they had done all they could,
and she'was auch a headstrong piece
that it yr&B beyond guessing what she
would do next-perhopg become a

The stoy of the ftfroignors, whloh
had been set for ono week, lengthened
to two, ond then to three; and here
it was tho fourth w?ek, ?nd the sea
ion nearly over. It was evident that
matters wore appronohing a crlsl? be
tween Fannie and the count. It also bo
came evident ono day that there wa?
a breach between tho two Germans.
Cousin Fred rushed out of the billiard
room into the midst of tho girls on the

been passed down from generation to
generation, one of the most highly
