A little elbow leans upon your knee. Your tired knee, that has so much to bear; A child's dear eyes are looking lovingly From underneath a thatch of tangled hair. | Perhaps you do not heed the velvet touch Of warm, moist fingers, folding yours so tight; You do not prize this blessing overmuch; You are almost too tired to pray tonight. I But it is blessedness! A year ago I did not see it as I do today; We are so dull and thankless and too slow I To catch the sunshine till it slips away. And now it si-ems surpassing strange to me [ That, while I wore the badge of motherhood, I did cot lass more oft and tenderly I The little child that brought me only good. | Ami if some night, when you sit down to rest, I You miss the elbow from your tired knee, j Tills restless, curling head from off your breast, This lisping tongue that clatters constantly j If from your own the dimpled hands had slipped And ne'er would nestle in your palm again; I If the white feet into their grave had tripped, | I could not blame you for your heartache thenl I wonder so that mothers ever fret j At little children clinging: to their gown. Or that the footprints, when the days ar? wet. Are e\er black enough to make them frown. If I could kiss a rosy, restless foot And lurar a patter in my home once more; If 1 could mend a broken cart today. Tomorrow make a kite to reach the sky, There is no woman in God's world could say She was more blissfully content than 1. But, ah, the dainty pillow r.ext my own Is never rumpled by a tuning head! My singing bird ling from its nett has flown; The little boy I used to kiss is dead! ?Mrs. May Riley Smith in Baltimore News. OCXX?OC>C<>?00COCO?X!00003CX>0 IUONAN WITH 1 ? fl CONSCIENCE. I X It Was Too Nice For Practical g ?> Purposes. p ScOSC GOCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCiJ "It's a troublesome thing to have. Is a conscience abnormally developed," ruminated Olivia. "Nest to being com monsenslble or trying to be dignified there's nothing so likely to render one ridiculous and unpopular. I almost wish it was possible to have one's con science shaved like a beard, or aiupu* tated like a corn, or pulled out like a defective tooth. Personally, I'm rath er tired of being a perpetual slave to the thing called conscience." "What's the mutter now?" I queried. You see, I knew Olivia very well-have known her since she was an infant in arms. In fact?and I could read the signs of her mental unrest. I knew she had been "opening her mouth and put ting her foot Into it" once more, as the Irishman, said. Olivia is rather unfor tunate that way always. If there's any tongue trouble going anywhere, the's pretty sure to pick It up some how or other. "Oh. It's nothing new- at least not more than a half a dozen new brain pangs or cuu:H*ienee pnins.' she replied. "1 have merely been reflecting?rather sadly?upon the dolefulness of possess ing a conscience In good working order when such an article Is distinctly and decidedly out of fashion and when one doesn't kiiow how to control It In the least" ? ^ A dear little girl Is Olivia, all the more lovable, perhaps, because of the inconsequence which Is naturally hers. She "rambles on sweetly," as her sis ter says of her when conversing with her intimates?just thinking aloud. I knew I should get to the bottom of her latest trouble presently if only I dldn t Interrupt and send her off op another (rack at a tangent, so I merely smiled svmpathetically and waited in silence, '??When I was a Child." she sighed presently. "I don't believe I was a bit popular, although I think most people | liked me. And I know I didn't have half the fun some of the other girls ; did, and all because my conscience was 'bloated.' as my older brother said. "I never left my Sunday school les son unlearned or my music lesson un practiced because I wanted to go violet hunting or coasting Saturday after noon," she continued, with a sigh. "I was too conscientious for that. And I always owned up to the mischief I'd done and refused to share In the tri fling consequences of the mischief I hadn't done Tor the very same.reason. When I became a trifle older, I passed ! low in many an examination because I , wouldn't make use of borrowed lan guage. or look at my books the very last, thing. A' little later 1 earned unpopu- i larity among my fellows because I never would say I was glad to see any one when I could not say so honestly. And now? "And the worst of It all Is that I ; don't believe I ever was or ever will i be one bit the better for nil these con- | science troubles." was the commence- j ment of the nest "ramble." for the sake of which she left the previous one unfinished. "As a little child worrying over my Sunday school lesson I cer tainly sinned just as much on the side of spiritual pride and childish 'pufTed- ^ upednrss' as I would have done on j the grounds of neglect of duty bad ! | enjoyed my Saturday afternoons as the other children did. It Is an open ques tion if I wouldn't have been a really better girl had I sometimes kept still about my own small wrongdoings as well as tacitly owned up to a few which I hadn't committed. The slightly Pharisaical attitude of mind came strongly Into play again over the *er nm. pads' I wouldn't borrow and the cril) knowledge 1 would have none of, and. although 1 never did say I was glad to see any one falsely. I've strain ed the truth and cracked ray con science's funny bone many a time try ing to think of some other convention ; ally pleasant thing to say. And now"? "Weil, what Is it?" I pressed her. de i termlned to fathom the trouble at last. I "What has happened 'now? " i But she merely shoolc her head mournfully and rambled on. "It's a point of conscience with me. : It always has been, to look at all things from both sides, and. in consequence, many a time I've looked at a given question from both sides'of the fence ! until I've impaled myself upon it and tare writhed under the knowledge TS^Z'ol1 ^ *****with wlth\h" hound^do^yoS? aag?rl^Ud .0 roe last week, and, mean as she was I understood just how she thouKht u In "e" And -Tot 1 was onlr follow ing out the dictates of my abnormal k^nselenee and trying to be Just. Another girl last week asked me If he powder on her face show?L and when I said yes she fairly hated me My conscience didn't allow me to miv no, and It never occurred to me until long afterward that 1 might hive pleasantly brushed off the powder'for her which dkl show and left the pow tier which didn't show alone without taj lug anything at all Two davs ag , niy brother's wife asked me what I thought of her complexion, aud be cause m.v conscience compelled me to tell her the truth she went home with out bidding me good night or speaking to me again. She hasn't spoken to mo since in fact. And things have gone of it* tIlla fashl0? uutll 1 am titvd ouVVt'w 'Ii?ber,t E,SI?ere-'first came out, it was a point of conscience with me not to read it, and every one called ine saint' and -prig- until life was a Weary burden.
