By OLIVE MARTIN. “The first snow of the season!” Lorena looked out of the big window In the living room uud watched the feathery flakes of white dusting the street and sidewalk. “How time files! Dear me. I’d uo Idea the month was so far along. I’ve been so busy with the campaign for the new baby hospital that I’ve lost track of the days.” She turned to the window again. “I wish those little boys would hurry with their wagons; it’s after one now and there’s so much to do.” In a few minutes a noisy little crowd MSas around the fire getting instruc tion-. The crowd departed uud Lorena looked fondly after her little settle ment people. Her life was full of these things now. charity and good works, that kept her busy and her thoughts off the past. A half dozen years be fore a great tragedy had come into her life. She returned to the library and picked up a photograph from the table “Dear, the last time I saw you was s day like this, but somehow It didn't seem cold like toduy. The world e\"n without the sunshine wus rosy and warm and glowing because I was with you. You looked that duy us if you wonted to say something and Couldn't. What wag it, dear? Did I guess rigid? Did you really love me and was it that you tried to tell? Then why did you go away?’’ The little wagons filled and two trips were made to Miss Lorenu's hlg side porch where the contents were emptied In a heterogeneous muss thut delighted her heart. “Why, kiddies. It looks as If we were going to get a good many dollars for the little sick babies. Come on Inside now and warm your fingers before you start out again. Why. what’s this? It looks like u stack of sermons. Such a lot of writing and pounds and pounds of paper.’’ She picked up a sheet and read. “It's all about stars! And It's old and dusty, an old munuscript somebody has thrown out I think I'll take it in and look it over. I’ve always loved as tronomy 1” Lorena settled herself on the rug be fore the fire to look over her discov ery. “Toward the south we see that the groups of stars which pass above the horlsoD —" The paragraph ended abruptly and the rest of the page was blank except for a footnote. “I’m tired and can't write any more. Lorena, dear, good-night’* She sprang to her feet with a cry, clutching the paper tightly to her breast. Robert Culver, returning from his dally trip to the library, went into his study and opened a drawer of his desk. It was empty! Horrified he pulled out another. It was also empty. In fact every drawer was as Innocent of paper as the Sahara desert of fish. He strode hurriedly to the kitchen. “Nanny, where are the manuscripts that were in my desk?’’ “Why, sir. It’s the dartin' babies. They came and said they needed the papers to make a hospital with and they were so old and dirty I thought you'd forgotten them and I gave them to the boys—" He went to the door and looked down the street. The cold wind blew fine snow into his eyes, but he didn't feel either. His work, the study of years, was gone! Suddenly he spied two small figures pulling a wagon through the park. They might know of something. With out waiting for hat or coat he followed as fast as he could. “Hello, boys! Do you know anybody that’s collecting papers around here?" “We are. Have you got any? We’re after our third load." “No, I'm afraid you got all I had. Where are you taking them?" “To Miss Lorena Herrick’s on Syca more street.” "Lorena Herrick's?" he almost tfhouted. He stood looking dazedly Into the shabby little wagon regardless of the curious eyes turned on him standing bareheaded in the snow. Lo rena Herrick! The name that had been buried In his heart for years! Then suddenly the words took form mid gazed up at him from a letter In the bottom of the otherwise empty j uugon. There It lay, old, yellow and J rolled, but the Inscription on It stood out plain. “Miss Lorena Herrick, 110 Sycamore street, Drewton, N. Y.” The *tamp was uncanccled and the writing his own. He picked It up bewildered. “Where did this come from?” “Don’t know. Must a’ fallen out of •omethlng,” came the answer. “It’s for Miss Herrick. Til take It to her.” He turned and strode away. Lorena stood before the fire. “Rob ert, dear, good-night!” she breathed softly over and over to the mysterious figures dancing In the flames. The front door opened and closed tnd Robert himself came Into the room, hatless, snow-covered and very pale. Lorena drew back, almost falling, then GEO. A. WATSON, President GEORGIA A.

The Source of “You All.” In a recent Sunduy edition there were citations from the Old and New Testaments and from Shakespeare, wherein the expression “you all" and similar expressions were used, quoted n Justification thereof.
