♦he day was at Its busiest n bold blast
of a hunter's horn came from the edge
of the forest. It was followed speed

mounted gallants in sueh splendid at

dance to gaze open mouthed at the ap
parition. The I'rlncess Margaret and
her party were utmost equally amazed
to behold such splendor Issuing from
the forest. At the head of the troop,
on a spirited white charger, rode a
young man whose rich dress and
knightly bearing proclaimed hlm to be
a person of great consequence.
Without further preliminary he rode
directly to the side of the chatelaine of
Ilourg. sprang from his horse, doffed
his plumed hat and. bending a grace

himself and his men.
"Sir. I am honored In the asking,"
she responded graciously, for she knew
that her would be guest was l'hlllbert
the Handsome, duke of Savoy.

presented to the princess, and the dance

At this astonishing declaration the

your partner in the Faster egg con

A great bush fell on the pay and
splendid company. Not a man or wo
man among tbein all was so stupid
as not to realize that I'hlllbert's words
meant the proffer of his heart and
hand. For a moment the fair Mar
garet hesitated, and her cheeks Hushed
charmingly. Then she accepted her
bold young wooer's arm and permitted
him to lead her to the field.

protested laughingly. "I shall be cer

she grew to maidenhood in the belief
that her matrimonial affairs were all

Song of the Resurrection Mom
TWO HAPPY KIDS ON EASTER MORNING.
AWAKE, fond heart, and sing an Easter scngl
** To the sweet anthem of returning bird
And swelling bud and pale ascending blade
Add the last word.
Drear was the winter and the waiting long.
Heart, there were hours, indeed, thou wert afraid,
So long the spring delayed.
AWAKE, fond heart, and go thou forth and sing I
** Unite thy voice to all this music sweet
Of opening leaf and busy, building wing
And falling showers;
The murmur soft of little lives newborn,
The armies of the grass, the myriad feet
Of marching flowers.
SHUT in the winter's alabaster tomb,
So white and still the sleeping summer lay
That dead she seemed,
And none might know how in her magic side
Slept the young spring and moved and smiled
Behold, she wakes again and, open eyed,
Gazes, in wonder, round the leafy room
At the young flowers. Upon this Easter day
Awaken, too, my heart, open thine eyes,
And from thy seeming death thou, too, arise.
HOW softly blows the resurrection horn
Across the meadows, over the far hills 1
In the soul's garden a new sweetness stirs.
And the heart fills,
And in and out the mind flow the soft airs.
Awake, fond heart, and sing this Easter mom!
In the year's resurrection do thy part.
Awake, fond heart!
