six rooms, or twelve, it may have had
a garden, or it may have looked on
the street, but in it your mother
moved about, and its music was the
sound of her voice. The next house
you will recognize when I say that it
has five doors through which you
may go out, and through which things
may enter; one you look through, one
you speak through, one you smell
through and one you hear through.

those empty shelves, everyone's mind

will be called silly, and when you

who sits here, the better for you and
for me. Then there is the strong
room where no light comes in, with Its
thick walls and barred iron door, and
here are kept the parchments with all
the history of the family. This is
memory, and here a book is put away
each year, that may not be taken out
to be altered but It Is a good thing,
now and then, to take the parchments
up to the big, bare court room, and
there spread them out, where there is
plenty of light, and examine them.

Then there Is the picture gallery of

the walls are hung with pictures of
angels and holy things; and there Is
the church, which Is your heart, where
you meet with God. You may meet
with God in any of these rooms, but
here, in this room, you must keep him
a holy place apart. Then you may go
out upon the roof, and afar off catch a

In 1 .on don recently of some experi

fired In that condition. Light as tho

great, to get It under way, and dur
