her, but another who sat near, unwa-hed
in a strerm, unstained with fruit, unad
orned with flowers, gave her a little gift
and satisfied the poor woman. And theo
she asked them what was the dispute
aud they told her, and lilted up before
her their beautiful bands. "Beautiful,

when they nuked her which was the moit
beautiful hand, the said, "It is not tide

into the ways of all good. In offering
these national thanksgivings, praises and
