"The last chick hati gonel"
Mrs. Cambury opened the long win
dow and walked out on the terrace.
Yesterday morning "Pat" had stood
there by her elde-Patricia, the young
est, the last to leave the old home.
Today the wedding bustle was over
and the house was empty. Mrs. Cam
bury shaded her eyes with her hand
and looked down into the rambling
garden. Even more than the house, it
brought her boys and girls back before
her. Now they belonged to the world
and she Was alone. Intq her heart
came the bitterness of motherhood
.the having and the losing.
"Miss Pat told me to give you this
as soon as you came down this morn
ing," Raid Martha, the maid. Her eyes
saw the tear her mistress wiped away
"Poor dear, I don't wonder!" she
thought. "There never was a finer set
qof boys and girls."
Sho put Patricia's letter in the hand
-that Mrs. Caimbury held out, eagerly.
"Dearest. Mother," the letter ran, "i
can't help going, becau-se of Edwin;
but I shall not forget one of the things
you've lived to teach us, and I'll try
to inake a home for E1dwin as sweet as
the home you've mnade for us."
The postian's knock broke in.
"Three letters," Alartha announced,
'with the freedom of long service. "And
I wonder whether they didn't do it
a-purpose," she muttered, as she went
back to the kitchen. She knew the
handwriting on every one of the three.

you gave yourself to us entirely, was
always the best in the whole day. It
is not given up, dear. It has taken

Maggie, tle youig mother, sent a
comical little story of her babies, and
of nursery difficulties.
"Thanks to your training, I can at

ALL IN THE SPIRIT EVINCED
"Profession" or "Trade" Have Little
Distinction Without Certain Im
It is contrary to human instinct to
be Idle. Some naturally prefer the
good and live to be useful. Others
evilly inclined, if useful at all, are so
by compulsion-in order to live. De
:tween these extremes are the careless
or'discouraged, who work only to get
the mears of a living.
We would not be misunderstood as
mineaning that, to be a professional
man, one must work for nothing, de
e lares a writer in Power. Neverthe
ess, the truly professional man who
ideserves the dignity of that classifica
oun makes his chief concern the good
t can do. le is more anxious to be
tuseful than rich.

.Pity, some in their ranks forget that
rthe mission of service is fundamental,
'the .acquisition of wealth incidental.
Just a% there are these exceptions
among those supposed to be of these
professional classes, there are many in
'the humbler walks considered to be
long to the trades, wbo care more to
texcel in their lines than for anything
ielse. They have a pride in their work
-and will do as conscientiously whether
their wages are high or low.

PERHAPS THAT CARRIAGE WAS

The German recruit was being
drilled In military manners-a most
important bra'nch of the art of war as
practised in the Fdtherland. For one
thing he had to be taught how to be
have on the street-whom to saltite,
and when, and all that sort of thing.
Tho method of instruction was to
havo the novice walk up and down the
court yard of the barracks, while from
this corner and that non-conmissioned
oicers kept popping out suddenly and
saying "I am a Royal Highness," or
"I am the Military Governor." or "I
am the Master of the Royal Dachs
hunds," or the like exalted titles.
Thereupon the appropriate salute had
to be given.
Everything had been going on very
well until a mischievous corporal dud
denly planted himself before the re
cruit and said, "I am a Royal Car
riage." The recruit marched straight
on without taking any notice.
"Why didn't you salute?" yelled the
sergeant In charge.
'.I beg your pardon," stammered the
recruit, "but I was under the impres
sion that the carriage was empty."
Sad Sights in Mexico.
I saw beggars everywhere in Mexi
co, many of them ranged alongside the
church soliciting alms from worshipers
or from passersby. I saw the signs of
ignorance and general depravity. I
saw wounded men and suffering wom
en. But the worst thing that I saw
in Miexico was a 'little six-year-old boy,
badly crippled, who was compelled to,
wvalk on his hands as wvell as his feet,
because his legs weren't strong enough
to support even his frail little body.
Hie looked like a toad, but his face was
gentle and sad. H~e had big black eyes
that seemed to search one's soul. Oc-.
casionally he would stop as he crawled
along the street, and look at his torn
fingers and hands--the streets were
made of gritty little stones that cut
his flesh. If only somebody had pro
vided him with gloves! But' this was
Mexieo. Nol~ody seemed concerned
about thIs little fellowv. He wasn't a
beggar. H~e made no appeal for money.
lHe was just a little boy who needed
friendship. But "of such is the king.

A literary critic called one day to
see a friend who was trying hard to
estab)lish a rep~utation as a novelist.

thrusting a manuscript into his guest's
hand. "it's my latest short story, and
I want you to tell moo what you think
.A few minutes later' ho was sur
prisedl to see his viitor', wiping tears
from his eyes. "My dlear chap, this is
really the most pathetic thing you've
over done!" said thie critic.
"What!" gasp~ed the author. "[
wvrote it as humorously as I could!"
Hie looked at the manuscript. "Oh, I
see; It's my mistake. I've given you
the wrong thing. That Is my letter to

"Yes, you can, Jerry* You can keep
