Though I am a man, yet thoro Is much of slmilnrlty in our cosea, and becauso I am a aufferer from tho courso of conduct of an unnatural father I hope I may be ablo to aay ?omethlng that may be ot comfort to tho young woman ln trouble.

Up to the tlme I waa 0 years of age I only saw blm ocooslonally, becnuae ho was a trnveb. Ing salesman and away. muoh of tho tlme.

I cannot tell you all, but back ot all this thero was an un hap'py, unfortunate marrlage, I nover know my father; he was and (s nothlng to me beyond bolng the author of my bolng. . "To-day l am doeply In love wlth a young woman, who reolprocates my af feotlon, but whose mother, becnuse of tho fnot /hat I cannot boast of my father, wlthholds her consent to my marrying her daughter on tho ground of 'llke father, llko son,' and she oan see no posslblltty for good ln me bo oause my father was not good, Thla woman Is the wife of a inlnletcr, and preaohes to me about 'the chlldren of Isruol dolng evll in the slght of the Lord aa dld thelr fathers.' She Is a Stlckler for heredlty, and olarmed leat her daughter may make a mlstake, though she knows me to be a Chrliitlan man, honnrable, upright apd nmbltlous, ' and known to my frjends as such.

Tho bread for the Btuidwichea should, of course, be very fresh, After slicing thin it is out out with a sandwich cutter raid left flat o* rolled and tied with a ribbon.. The slices are buttered and filled with chopped olives mixed with a little niayonnaise. Sandwiches should not be left in the air a minute, but, should be wrapped immediately in waxed paper. The grnndraother's gingerbread is a good sort of cake to take on such a trip, as eomething that will not get the hands sticky or crum ble easy will be found the most de Birable. Trouble will be saved.by slicing the. bread before packing in .tho box- Like the sandwiches, it should be wrapped in waxed paper. j Grapes are also nice for a picnio lunch, as they will not cause iniich of a cleaning up.
