Could it have been the effect of her own kindly word to her4iusband ? JNoon. came ana dinner; was ready. John came in quite weary, and under the influence of the new spirit which"' Polly had.cnlled up shereally sympathized with hint The. provision for the meal was very meager; and it she had followed the labit of years, she would hare- point-i ed out the fact, and taken occasion there upon to shower abuse upon' his head ; biU rhe could .not do 'that now. The hum- Aiing-of- the old tune hal so softened her voice thatwithout much eflort she kind ly said : -r in-el $ ' ; ".- " ' -; It's a poor dinner " John, but it's the best we have. ; ". - ' "... And Johii,,'all his old good, nature arouse!-: by the, dnagic ; toh'gae ;. of . kind words replied : - - xs ever mind PcilvV we ll cat what w.c have tb-day, and perhajs to-morrow we'll have something better: If I don t drink ariy more rum I "shall save in two'days; I shall earn more, and I shan't spend so much toolishly.

Rut would he. -keep .his promise :. i , j - . And a still small voice whispered with- Keep; your owii promisel and .hope for the best. . . ? ". On the follov.mg morning, when John awoke, he heard his wife -at work in the kitchen, and when he had dressed him self he crept out like a culprit' expecting to be abused for his laziness. , He did not think it within the bonds ' of possibility iov Polly to hold, but he was mistaken.
