80 GOES THE WOULD.
When I wear the cap and bells,
Many friends have I;
Unto careless, merry hearts,
Merry hearts reply,
Just as this earth of ours
Dimples in a hundred flowers,
When above, in summer's hours,
Laughs a summer sky.
When Grief bides with me, alas!
Not a friend have [;
Sad hearts meet on every side
With a cold "Good.hy,"
Just as this earth of ours
Parts with all the drooping flower.,
When above in autumn hours,
Glooms a sombre sky.

"Whati" cried Mrs. Morwatt, in
shrill accents of dismay. "Marry Bess

In earnest, be you?"
Joshua Morwatt's broad, good-humor
ed face brightened into a smile.
"Well, I rather think I am," said be.
"At any rate I am engaged to her, and
we have set the day for the 80th of May.
"Without asking me?"
"You are not 6ne of the contracting
parties," laughingly retorted Joshua:
"But seriously, mother dear, it was
only definitely settled last night, and I
was coming to tell you when you met
me half way, with the milk-pail in your
Mrs. Morwatt screwed up her lips
like a button; her little eyes sparkled
like electric fire.
"She shall never come into this
housel" said she venomously.
"Mother, don't," pleaded Joshua,
with a pained look in his honest face.
"Remember when you and father were
"&But your father had a little common
sense," sharply retorted Mrs. Morwatt,
"and I was a hard working farmer's
daughter-not one of your dancing,
frolicking gypsies who spend their whole
time in candy pulls and apron parties,
and all that sort of nonsense."
"And you will find, mother," urged
the young man, "that Bess will be just
as good a wife as you were."
"Pshaw1" was Mrs. Morwatt's curt
rejoinder. "When you know perfectly
well that it was the dearest wish of my
heart to see you married to your cousin,
Joshua Simpson shook his head.
"Nancy never would suit me," he
said. "She is one of these cold, serpent
like women that go gliding about like
the ghost in the play. And I'm not
vain enough to suppose that I corrbspond
wit her ideas any more than she does
"Well," said Mrs. Morwatt, severely,
"you've made you bed and you must lie
oil it, Joshua. That's all I've got to
say on the subject."
"But you will come and see her,
"No, I won't!"
"You will welcome her to adaughter'
place in your heart? For my sake,
motherI" vehemently ;*aded Joshua.
"For nobody's sake," said Mrs. Mor
watt. "I don't lixe Bess Ilarding, and
I never liked her! And If you marry
her, you deliberately separate yourself
from all your home associations!"
Joshuai Morwatt turned away, deeply
pained and stung to the very heart.
"It must be as you say, mother," said
he "B~ut if there is an estrangement. it
shall be neither Bess' fault'nior mine."
Mrs Morwatt kept her word. She
niever looked upon Bess Harding,
although the girl, deeply wounded at
the Idea of thus being shut out from the
heart of Joshua's mother, came more
than once to beg admittance to the house.
She sent. no message of affection, no
bridal gift-sihe wvouldl not eveni lead the
grace of her presence to the simple
weddling. "They shall see what it

Qluet vindictivenets. But preitty Boss,
a girl of twenty, with soft, gazelle-like
brown eyo.', curly hair, and a genuine
"sun -rise pink"' complexion, was
innocently happy ini the little farm
hiouse which Joshua hired, where she
played housekeeping, with her china
which had once been her mother's,
gathered roses for vases, and cooked all
manner of dlelIcious dishes for h'er
hiusband 's delecation.
Bunt hard times camne, skeleton like
and~ ghostly, as they camne to all. The
succedhinug summer was unusually dry.
Crops were parched and shriveled In the
groiunid. TIhe cows ceasedl to give rich
streamns milk; the bees could find no
wild flowers to suck honey from. And,
to crown alil, Joshua fell from a beam in
the second story of the barn and broke
"Send for my mother," said he, with
white lips which betokened his suppress
ed agony. "You are r.ot strong enough,
Bess, to endure this yourself."
Mr.Morwatt, however, refused to
"My on mrrie to uithimrelf,"
hesaid "now let his tIne lady wife
nurse him tip."
fYet all the while her heart yearned
tur one look at her son's face, one
sound of his voice. If it had not been
for BesS-if only it had not been for
hess--how gladly would she have
hastened to hisa side!
And now ensued real trouble. The
little money which the~ young couple
had saved was soon scattered. Every

began to count the very pennies At the
bottom of her purse.
"But, Joshua," she said, "I thought
Mrs. Morwatt was rich."
"My mother is well' off," Joshua
answered sadly, "but the property is aN
in her own name, and she has never
offered me any of it. Can't you see,
Bess, darling, that I would rather die
than ask for it?"
Bess looked at him with troubled
"What shall I do?" she asked herself.
"Can I sit here and see him suffer for
the very necessities of life?"
Just at that time came a letter to her
-a letter from a city friend who had
spent a summer in Blooming Vale.
"Darling Bess." wrote Mrs. Germyn,
"Don't be amazed at what I am going
to ask you. But I am to have a Christ
mas party for my little girls-and I do
so long for some of those cream candies,
and sugared nuts, delicious chocalate

we boarded with your aunt at Blooming

Please send the 'goodies' by express,
just as soon as you can possibly make
them, and oblige everlastingly.
The joyful tears came into Bess Mor
watt's tyes as she sat looking at the
crisp bil neatly folded into the letter.

"Why have I never thought of it

She made baste to prepare the
caramels, the dainty cream bars, -the
walnuts enclosed in a crystal garment of
translucent sweetness, and with them
she enclosed the lettter, begging Mrs.

Bathing as a remedial agent is no c
new thing. Hippocrates, who lived t
300 years before Christ, understood the
value of the bath both in health and
sichkness; Caesar Augustus had his
Lydropathtc physician, and Galen, whot
lourished~in the second century 'after j
Dh rist, was well acquainted with the
worth of water as an external means
of removing disease and promoting
liealth. But internal bathing is some.
thing new; and for the benefit of some s
