HOMES IN HEAVEN
Said to Depend on Materials One
Has Sent Before.
Therefore, the Occupier of a Maholon
en Earth Will Not Necessarily Be
Sumptuously Lodged Hereafter
-Story That Points Moral.
There were stories told at the an
nual meeting of the Travelers Aid
meeting at the Princess theater the oth
er day that were too good to be lost.
One by President S. 1. Cox of the Silk
Travelers' - association is - specially In
teresting in these days when every one
seems to be thinking more or less of
the life hereafter. Some one had gone
to the pastor of Mr. Cox's church to
ask his idea of heaven and in answer
he related a dream told him by an
other member of the church, a man of
prominence and high financial stand
Ing. This gentleman in his dream had
died, reached the gates of heaven, was
admitted and courteously taken on a
personally conducted tour through the
pearly street of the country now to be
his home. A number of houses were
In process of construction, and a large
one was pointed out as being the fu
ture home of the man who on earth
had been the new arrival's gardener.
"For my gardener" exclaimed the
gentleman in surprise. "Why, on earth
lie lived in such a small house! He
needn't have done so, of course, but he
never had anything, he gave everything
away. * Ile lived in the little lodge at
the entrance to my grounds."
The guide assented to the truth of
this statement and the personally con
ducted tour was continued until they
came to another house in process of
erection, so small that the new arrival
asked curiously for whom it was in
tended, and was amazed upon being
told that that was to be his own home.
"I am to live in that little place,
when on earth I had such a great
house " he exclaimed.
"Yes," said the guide, "but you see
here we have to use tho materials we
have on hand, and when you were on
earth you sent very little over."
Another story was told by Miss
Eleanor Perry. a young woman who is
one of the Travelers' Aid workers at
the railroad stations and goes to show
that South Dakota has a good climate
which tends to the longevity of its in
habitants and enables them to retain
qualities of alertness to an advanced
Miss Perry was on duty at the sta
tion one night when the matron
brought to her a nice old lady of eighty
who had come from South Dakota and
wished to go to Brooklyn to see a
daughter who wias seriously ill in a
hospital. but she did not know the
way. Miss Perry undertook to net as
guide, found her companion very alert,
much interested in the subway, which
she saw for the first time in her life,
and learned the short notice upon
which she had undertaken her trip
from the West.
