""Pl""ti u iiitiiii ui siiti 01 us iiioi icr. 1 ii poor mother lookud up at the soft coo iiigr sound, and hurst into teats and suits. "Oil Annt Milly, what is it?" said Jen- y, drttwinir eltise to the little group, and int'chaiiicallv puttitiff the baby into iia moihi-r's arms. "Ho calm Jenny," said Annt Mill v. "for your mother's sake. God has taken John." Jenny said not a word: slio knelt by Aunt y, and laid her cheek against hers, her eyt-s fixed upon her tnoiLers face. mid the tears railing silently. " 1 Ins won t do," saiil lJ.jreas, after a minute or two, ''Miss Fauninx's all heat out and she must go and lie down. Here give 1110 the baby." The mother drew tho 'child closely to her breast. i 'No, said Aunt Milly." leave the hnby with her, he'll do her good. Come Jane don't you think you'd better go to your room a little while? Dorcas will out aud tell brother and Dieli." Mrs. Fanning suffered heriwdf to be ed away, and the seamstress hurried out 10 the he'ii whero the men were at work to tell the terrible news. Ihn scrap of paper mat iforcas,. Held was leit on the iiiie, and Jenny picked it up. "John stayed over a day to go boat ing, and whs drowned at ten o clock, this morning. We are searching for his body." Such was the telegram that turned the biighiesl day of tho year to midnight larkness tor the hearts that waned tor John" at the Fanning homestead. "Oh Aunt Milly," sobbed Jenny, lay ing down the telegram, us Aunty came ; "at ten o'clock this morning the very into when we all thought he was almost . home. Oh John! Dear, dear, brother John I And we shall never Bee him again, Aunty." "Death cannot separato souls, dear Jenny," said Aunt Milly with a smile of holy triumph ; JiihiMias only gono into auo'.her room of theFiiihor's hcuse." "But w .can't see him, or hear him speak. What shall wo do without him ? , ; . " ! ' ' "We must. lo as be would wish us to do if he could speak to us. We must forget ourselves in making each other happy. , That was John's way, wasn't it? ' There's a great deal for you to do now, dear try and make the house as blight as possible; that's the true way to mourn for John. If I he sunshine that John made tor us is taken away we must make more. Your mother must be your first thought now Jenny." Jenny's answer was interrupted by Dick,wh rushed in .where . they , were crying bitterly, and asked for bis mother. Mr. Fanning followed, bis rough features working with emotion that he tried iu vain to hide. "It's hard, Milty bard," be said. "I don't see why my boy must be drowned. Seems to me the Lord don't show much good sense, taking them out the world that could do the most good in ii. What do you say, Milly ?" and the rong man's voice grew so weak that '.he name was like a cry of anguish, as it escaped his lips. "Vou know, John," said Aunt Milly, "that I believe the Lord knows best ; but we must all find that out for ourst'lve." Mr. Fanning passed out to bis wife's bedroom. . , . , . ( "Well, wife," lie said walking around awkwardly, "John's gone." "And what ; have you ever done to make things pleasant tor him?" was the sharp reply. "Nigh unto as much as you' ever have, seems to me," and the husband went out with a hard look in his face, Thus it happened that, the first words spoken lo each oilier, by John's father and mother after, (heir boy's death, were words ot rvci'WuiiiailoH.1 L "Mi. Fanning went back to Milly. "What's to be done, sister ?" he said, ought to go to C if I can leave home."; , ; ... - "Yes John go and take Dorcas-. In all probability the body will be found by ihe time you reach there, I'll ; look out lot' thing's at borne,' with Jenny's help and Dick's."

The search for the body w.n siiocrss fnl, aud Mr. Funning and" Dorcas return ed the next day, bringing w ith them all that remained to the sight of the happy, high-hearted boy. Ry'the time they ar rived, Mrs. Fanning was unable to leave her room. She had wept and moaned constantly, since the terrible news, and her previous slate of excitement w as a good preparation for the nervous fever that followed. Incessantly she reneat- sMYVT 11 rp as. ed her vain regrets that, she bid n't done more for John, and her esrelainatioiis that she couldn't live without him.

Mrs, Fanning attpmp'cd to rise, and fell back iu violent hysterics. I will not describe' the events of the next three days. Similar ones are famil iar to us nil. John was buried in the little grave yard on the slope of the hill west of the house, and tho family went on in the ev ery day life of farm und household.

Refore the first rain fell upon John's grave, one of the scenes passed between Jenny and her mother, and she, wrought to the highest pitch of angry excitement tied to her one reliige tor consolation, tc . f ;ll M 1 , s.s . . - vuiii .uuiy, riiu said, "lv e Deen very sorry for mother, so sorry that Iv'e tried lo forget that I had anything to teel oati ntjotii; Out I'm not sorry any more ; 1 thought she. d be different al ter " "JJoirt try to speak it, Jenny, wait till you get over your auger, before you speak your brother s name." "I'm afraid I shall never get over it I can t suit mother ; I hu more I do, the more she finds fault with me." "Jenny, did yon never read stories of heroic workers, missionaries or martyrs patriots, your heart thrilling with the wish that you could do soiuolhing great autl beautiful ?" "Oh yes, Auntv." "Yon have a chanco now to do it It may be as great in God's siirht for a child to bear injustice sweetly and silent ly, as for an older fighter to meet death. To do the work God gives us, truly aud patently, is the only heroism." ''It strikes me you are about right, Milly," Baid Mr. Fanning, who, standing just ottlsiJe the door, hud heard the wbulo conversation, "lint your view of the case makes me a mighty cowardly sort of a creature. I always run from that kind of fighting, Jenny, here, is try ing to do. lint there are some things we can't run away from, eh, Milly ?" "Milly, will you go to Airs. Fanning, think she is worse. She's lying in a strange way," said Dorcas coming iu. Milly followed her out of the room, "What it mother should die ton I" said Jenny, going timidly to her father's side. "I never thought of that," was the re ply ami the farmer put his arm around liis daughter and drew her close to him, uctualy for the first time since she was linle child, "John, come here a minute," called Milly from the sick room. "Jane's de lirious. I think you'd belter go for the doctor as soon its possible." Mr. Fanning went lo his wife's siJu The face, flushed with fever, wore some thing of thu old girlish look. Her eyes grew bright as she saw him, and she murmured : "Youv'e come al last, John. What made you stay over, when we were all waiting for you ? I dreamed you were drowned, John. Aud thu dream was so real, I'm so glad youv'e come, nobody cares about mo but you, John v, and its nothing but work from morning till night, morning till night." Mr. Fanning gave his sister one look and started for the doctor. "She's worn out," said that personage when he appeared two hours after. "There's nothing special the matter but she doseu't have perfect quiet and great care you'll lose her," "I believe folks think women are made of iron," he muttered, taking up his med icine cuse and drawing offhis lisle gloves. 'iYou can give her this, once iu two hours, but don't disturb her if she's quiet; is not medicine she needs." "Oh Aunt Milly she will die ?" plead ed Jenny, as the doctor went out, I never thought it possible, Tell me that she won't die, Aunty 1 "You heard what tho doctor said only care can save her. We must for get, ourselves entirely, and try lo keep the house at) quiet and orderly that there will not be the slightest jar to her nerves. You had better look out for the baby now and let Dorcas get dinner. I'll sit here by your mother, aud sue it she needs anything." . Milly's heart ached more than once as she listened to the Vague words of the sufferer. The sick woman fancied her self with her boy, and she continually talked lo him of her loneliness. "Your father only cares about bis farm," she said over and over. "He was different once. He was so proud of you when you were a baby, John ; and you were such a strong baby, so large aud fair." . "Shall we have a minute pudding for dinner?" said Dorcas at the door. Aunt Milly weut to thu kitchen, and finding the baby asleep, sent Jenny lo by her mother. "Is she going ou the same way?"' enquired the seamstress, stirring toe puuaing vigorously! "About the same." "You'd never thought Jane Fanninir was a woman to fret about being loved. She snaps every body up thai comes her. She complain about her husband's changing, but I'd like to know who's done more to change him than she has with her fault finding. John Fanning' a peaceable, clever man as far's ever saw." Aunt Mdly said nothing. "And there's that Jenny," she tontin ued,"as willing a child it ever drew breath ; and what kind of life does she 111 nit A r. lean ncrer 1 he truth ;s, Mr, r aiming set her whole affection on John, and we re commanded not to have idols," and liorcas brushed the meal off her hands with a litle gesture of triumph, as niuch as to sav, "I always knew how 'twould be." ' "How is she?" said Mr. Fannin, drawing Milly aside as became in." "About the same." I'm afraid she'll never got over John's death," he continued, sitting down at the t ible. "There's but one thing that can make her get over it." "And what's tint?" "A little of the same car anil tender nes from you that she so ni'im-eiuted in J.ihn." "From in", Milly ?" Oh I never suit ed her." "Did you ever try ? Did you ever take one half the pains to nvike your wife happy, that you take t prepare your fields for a good harvest ?" "Milly, I'm afraid youv'e got metherp; I don't know as I ever thought much about the matter, anyhow. Hut to tell you the truth, though its rather mean to rake it up now, I don't think she's been much ahead of me." "There it is John. .You and Jane and Jenny are all standing off hy yourselves, aim demanding to he made happy. Sup pose you should reverse things, ami In to make each other happy : that worked well in John s case." "l nat s a tact .liliy, it did. lie never seemed to think about himself. Ami I s'pose l hat's why things brightened up so when he was home. I never thought Why it was tielore. " "You've been too busy with Vour farm," said Milly. S( , .,... ft -aiie skeins sinking, it there s any difference, said the doctor, when be came again. "There's about tine chance in ten that she II rally, not more'n that She's been running down fur a long time Anybody might have seen that with halt an eye." She diit rally, however 'thanks to strong constitution, aud the tender nurs ing site received. She was lying very nuiet one day, soft color on her cheek and a light in her eyes very pleasant to see. Milly sat by her, with a bit of canvas and a thread of bright worsted in her hand. "Milly," said she, "1 want, to thank yon -for all you've done for me." "i ou re quite welcome lm sure. It i very little 1 can do lor any hotly, with my strength." Oh, Its not thai I mean. John and I have had a talk. We've made up our intnd lo try your rule." "And wha'.'sthat?" "Not to fret about what we can't help ; and try to make things as smooth for each other as we can." "That makes two rules l and their neither of them mine." "V ell, we call them yours, because Vou really practice them. They Were John's loo, and I fancy if we try lo live oy them, it will bring htm nearer to us.

"We women are mostly wrong then," said Aunty. "We never shall go on till we really feel that, liod cares, and nre satisfied with only that, iu case it is ne cessary to do without ther iove." . Jenny came in at that minute with the baby, and seeing the pleasant light in her mother's face, went up aud kissed her. "This is something like," said Farmer Fanning, coming in with Dick. "Can't you go out and sit al the table with us to-night!"' Mrs. tunning looked at Milly, the question in her eyes. "1 don'i think 'twould hurt you." So I he strong man took the slender form in his arms and deposited it iu a big easy chair that Jenny ran lo put in her mother's old place at the table. Dick stood by quite forgetful of his tricks, ni.d radiant with the sunshine that tilled the hollso. The farmer still wailed, as if for some one. At last he said, Itesttatir.giy : '"Twouldu't be out of the wav to have a liule prayer, would it, Milly?" "W ell, said iuiliy, smiling "But I'd father have Vou say it, sister. It's a good while since I tried my hand at ai.ylhiug ot the kind," It was no new business to Milly, and she knelt down in the midst of the group and uttered a few sweet words of thanksgiving, and asked tor help in the future to remember that even Christ pleased not himself. "1 believe it s tne only way to go no." said the farmer, takinir a mouthful of Dorcas' good corn bread. "What the only way?" asked his wife. "Helping each ther." he reiilied, washing down the bread with the fra grant cottee. "Us hard climbing, though, for such selfish creatures as 1 am. "Not so very hard it vou don't lose the way," said Aunt Mdly. "liul how are we always going to tell the way ?" asked Jenny. . " ' 1 hiu the way,'-" was the reply, "That means Christ," said the lather. "And Christ is Love," answered Aunt Milly. "AuntT," said Jenny the next day, "do you remember telling m one time that John would be my ally r ; "Xes, dear." "And an ally meant one that helps? " "Yes," "Well I think Johii than if he had lived." hi The End. The Meeting of Stanley and Livingstone.
