Wlta gladness and Joy each bosom two 114.
A scroll that a little yr ago
T ' Wasfresn and eweet a a wind snrortse.
As spotless and pnre a a veil of snow.
Has alowly unrolled before our eyes.
And day hy day. as the year went bv.
A line was written npon the scroll ;
We ft-aTe to them each a amtle or sigh.
We hare only smiles to give the whole.
The fair white page of the coming ysar.
Oh, what is the lecord it will hear?
Will faith and conrece our pathwaycheer,
And kTing hearts all oar sorrows share?
To those it comes like a wave of light.

From which moon and stars have been

But the Hand tba as held ns hitherto

Though the, way He leads ns be strange and

So. with stronger faith in the God we rrnot.
Let as greet with smiles this happy day.
And wait for reward, if wait we must.

If yon want me to tell yon, I will ; but
I ain't need to telling things if they're
long, and. likely. as. not. I'll get it all

Charley con id tell it beautiful, I sup
pose. He's the smart one of our family,
and can do $nt about everything he seta
oat to. :r All the same, it's always him
that's getdngTJS into scrapes. Smart
folks are that way. -.They get people
into things people would never think of
themselves, ana then somehow they tarn
ap all right, and it's us that catches it.
The whole business was his doing; none
of the rest of us would ever have thought
of such a thing.
When, the invitation came Charley in
stantly began to talk about Towzer. He
said he wasn't going to have Towzer left
at home whining about and breaking his
heart all alone for any stupid dinner at
Grandpa's: not he the dog shoal go.
The idea, was so perfectly absur'V that
when Betty said,' "Nonsense; noia your
tongue I" none , of as thought a word
about it1
Grandpa is a very rich man "most
dreadfully horribly rich," Jack puts it.
He lives- in the- city, and has an im
mense house, nearly as big as our barn ;
the furniture is something wonderful,
and there are horses and carriages and
Just what relation we are to Grandpa

horrid groan, and in a minute he was

he would go into fiu. There was a big
empty stall in the stable, and in we ail
went, and covered ourselves up with
Dick," said Charley, "if they don't
lock up, we'll crawl out after dark and
go home."
This was all very well, but Bob's
awful screams were enongh to tell the
wholo neighborhood where we were.
Presently out came James, ana Mrs.
Davis with him.
Now we had always been afraid of
Mrs. Davis, she was so big and digni

Then Mrs. Davis scolded him a lilt e.
and finally she ordered us back into the
dining-room, and told us she was guii;
to tell us a story about Grandpa, tie
was gone, of course. No mortal p -w
er could have got us back into that room
if Grandpa had been there.
"Ever and ever so many yars ago "
"Hundreds and hundreds?' ask d
Jack. He always will interrupt a story.
"No, but a good many". When
Grandpa was a young man he was very
poor, but he had a wife and a little b v
that he loved very much. They were so
poor that instead of a great big house
they could only have part of one
Grandpa went to work every day and
his wild went out to buy thing--, and
there was no one to leave the little boy
with but a big dog named Towzer.
"Oh!" groaned Charley. He wat
still awful pale.
" One day Grandpa came home from
work, and" what do yon think he saw?
It was a most terrible xighu From i he

he lived his little boy was hang

"knows what's what," and as long as
hell have ns young ones there once In a
while to dinner and let us call him
"Grandpa," we've got to go. Betty
talks about oar "chances ;" but when
we wanted to take a chance in a grab
bag at a fair she said it was wicked.
It was just a week ago .that we were
packed in the wagon ready to start.
Charley says our wagon came out of
- the) Ark ; out it isn't true. A great

yoa come to talk about the Ark,' it's

Koah would have taken such a wagon
as that aboard when he was rich enough
to have all those animals ! I like reason
in things, and there's no reason in that.
Oar machine looks so funny in Grand
pa's Wg coach house ! ; I can always
hear James giggle when we drive up.
Bat this. time I think we looked a little
better than usual, for Charley had on
his new overcoat; Jack and I, being
twins, have got so used to being mixed
.'. op that we don't pretend to have any
thing separate. People never know us
; apart, and when he's naughty Betty
generally whips me. I suppose I wore
..I tiia clothes, but we both looked nice.

new collar Betty did ap for him nearly

ten miles to Grandpa's. We're just
outside the oitv. where rents are cheap
. We hadnt gone two miles that day
" ' before Charley , gave a whistle, and
there was Towzer right alongside the
wagon -
"Yoa darsnt!" said I.
"Darsnt I?" said Charlev. "He'll
stay in the coach-house, and 111 run out
now and then and speak to him. We
ain't had him a month, and I couldn't
leave him behind."
Mv hair iust stood on end I don't
. believe there's anything Charley daren't
do. It's just as I said before, lie Knows
three times as much as the rest of ns,and
he just imposes on It to do as he likes. But
then the idea of taking Towzer to Grand
ma's! I knew trouble would come of
it, and knew, too, that if it did. Char
lev M tret out all right: and if
there were any consequences, we'd be
the ones to take 'em. You just ought
to hare seen the trouble we had to get

and then he shut the door quick, and

we haven t any room left for the ice

' trouble is Grandpa. He sits up so stiff

its in his high chair and scarcely dares

Sardinia there grows a kind of ranun

in a strange way the muscles of the face

forcibly drawn back, and the pntient to

But another explanation is more gen

"God ble s yo !" the grc --ting made to

No people were ever more supersti-

to the right or left. But it was always
a sacred s gn and to be r garded as

Jupiter eep and aid you!" From this
b t o! an ient superstition arose the
cu torn now nearly forgotten among
Christ an s. of crying out, "God bless
you:" when on snee s.
The reason of its use as an augury
has rot been disco ered. But sneering
has everywhere and in all times been
cons de red worthy of a certain degree
o attention. According to toe Jews
the custom o wish ng well to one who
sneezes dates tar, I.ir hacK. even to the

and dull gold color. A beautiful rousse,
who is a great favorite in English socie

usually dresses in the evening in yellow
satin or gold-colored velvet. . She is a
picture indeed: and in her walking
gowns of chocolate relieved with am

Starkev, although a perfect gent eraan
on the street, was a perfect tyrant of
the deepest dye. Without any provoca
tion whatever, he used to beat his wife
and lock her no in the wardrobe:
hence, when he heard of his death, it
was not so much a case of lieavv be
reavement as it was of ni'tigated affec
tion. As the engineer of tne locomo

dent it was suggested to the widow
that she br ng suit for damages. She
rexo'ved to do so, and called at the

The Siamese explain it differently.
They say thefo are in the infernal re
