fter Calvin Cornell's trrival, and was
ueditatingjover these things,when Cort
oil himself entered. She was looking
3r a vi-jit not from bim but from Bob
Iristol. Nevertheless she found little
r no difficulty in meeting him with
anventional care.
At first, that is. Her old friend?or
ireethoart?lost but little time in com*

ill, and it certainly startlod ber when
o said, 'I am very glad I found you
one.'
?Glad?' she said. Oh, yes. "It is
ce to bc able to have a little chat,

'1 cnn tell you about that at tome

THent I have to dischargo a duty.
b, yep. It wouldn't be right. I
juldn't Uko it, if I wero in Bristol's

?Like what? said the girl.
'This'?And he took a tiHsuo pack
0 from Lia pocket.
Edna opened the package, wonder
;. "When eIio Baw the old gloves,

uked witb the fo'ds of many other
later? years of careful keeping, a
tole procession of memories passed
foro ber mind. She was silent for
ne moments,
'What ought I to do?witb them?'
1 asked. 'I don't know. Tell me.'
Not the hast doubt ol it, tbe whole

'How are you, Br s ol?' Co. troll >aid,
bolling out hs Laod. 'I h pe you
haven't fo got., nm.'
The wont of it was tbat Edm was
still laughing. And there were tie
gloves. Bristol appeared to think tbat
the situation doa.an.hd a d splay of
quiet dignity.
'I remember you perfectly, Hr. Cor
trel1,' he said, bowing slightly. "May
I auk a,.ain what amuses you so much?'
Edn . became Heriots in a moment,
snd as she bec uno serious he became
angry.
?It isn't very much of a joke, Mr.
Bristol,' si e said. 'If you insist on
having it, however, Mr. Cortrell has
just found an o'd pair of gloves of
mine . ias brought them to me, be?
cause it uidn't occur to him to put
them in the fire. Isn't it funny?'
'I hardly think so,'Bristol answered.
'Perhaps I might appreciate tbe joke
better if I knew where Mr. Cortrell
found these gloves.'
As Cortrell opened Lia mouth to
make sonic answer to bim, Edna, put?
ting up her hand, said : 'This _b my
business. I'm afraid you will not have
in opportunity of fu'ly appreciating
;he joke, Mr.Bristol, until you manage
:o get yourself into a better humor for
bat sort of thing.'
She very carefully folded up the
?loves and h?id them behind the clock
rn the mantelpiece, while Cortrell star
d at her and Bristol stood biting his
ether lip.
Then there was an awkward pause for
oms moments, until Cortrell said
omothing about going.
'Why, I've hardly had ten words with
ou yet, Mr. Cortrell,' Edna eaid, with
wicked g'ance at the other man.
Please don't go yet. Perhaps?per?
up- I may find something of interest

'Then perhaps I had better call at

It was a very awkward situation in

st observation of his, and Cortrell
mid not run away after Edoa's prosa
g invitation.
Half an hour later Cortrell said.
?What do you mean by saying that

'Did I?' said Edna. 'Do ytu bold

She ran out of the room and after a
tie while came back holding some
ing behind her,
'Do you recognize thi. ?' And she
ddenly produced an old faded red
lvet smoking cap. It was a Mephisto
th bides pulled down and an absurd
ash at one sile.
'By Jingo?' Cori roll exclaimed.
?Yes,' .aid Edna. 'You had to go
me bareheaded.'
'It was tbat night, wasn't i', after we

'1-omember the water rats?'
?And you would pull off jour glovea

Edna nodded. 'And you would not

'Jack stole my cap, didn't he?'
'Yes and I made him give it to inc?

CHRISTIAN EN OE AVOR.
Topic, June 12: Christan Courage ;
Examples from Books or Life?Mark
10: 32-34; Acts 21: 10-H.
Some one has well expressed the
difference between mere physical
bravery and true courage by saying,
"Bravery lies in the blood, courage in
tho mind." There are certain people
who instinctively are indifferent to
hardship and ignorant of fear, but this
quality is likely to predominate io rash,
unthinking natures. A good illustration
of the difference between tho traits is
afforded by the story of two soldiers
going into battle. One, noticing the
pallor of bis companion, said jeeringly,
"You are af raid." "Yes,'' returned tbe
other quietly, "and if you were half as
afraid you'd run." Lacking natural
fearlessness, be had the courage to de?
fy tbe danger he thoroughly realized.
There are people who endure pain
like heroes, but who wince before a
icornful smile" Some men could face
t cannon without flinching, but are
tffiaid to speak the simple words,"I do
aot think it is right."
Christian courage is not a matter of
emterament. Peter acted naturally
.Then he ran a-vay from danger and
vith oaths denied any knowledge of
lia Master. But not many days later,
ie faced the throngs which filled Jeru
alom, to tell them that with wicked
ands they had crucified the Sou of
?od, and tbe thing which caused his
carers the most wonder snd porplex
y was bis marvelous boldness.
Chiietian courage is not foolhardy,
ut it never holds back when duty
oints forward. It has a chance to
xpress itueltjn the little things of
fe as well as in the greatest. It in
pires to a brave endurance of all kinds
f bodily discomfort, aad this it is
hieh makes many a sick-room sonia a
ateway into heaven itself. iTCemanda
nt we shall bravely meet calamity. It
ccessitates a complete disregard for
1 scorn and censure which is under?
,rved. It means th it when danger
treatens, we shall still be undismayed.
Down through the ages eome the
nging words, '"Be strong and of good
>urage; be not afraid, neither be thou
smayed' for the Lord thy Ood is witb
