She turned to the window again. “I

there’s so much to do.”

She returned to the library and
picked up a photograph from the table

The little wagons filled and two trips

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

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

“Where did this come from?”

“It’s for Miss Herrick. Til take It

Lorena stood before the fire. “Rob

Realize the Good You Desire.
He who knows the spirit of law is
not forced to stand powerless In an
guish of heart before wasting sick
ness. Strive with all the power within
you (and it Is great If you but recog
nize It) to break down the walls of
belief that any evil can dominate you.
Cast out the error that stands be
tween you and the greutest good you
desire. As surely as the sunlight of
day melts Into the purple twilight of
evening, so surely do you strike sturdy,
determined blows ugainst the prison
walls of delusion and false belief. Not
a pain but will vanish when the wise
tongue gives It the lie. Not a misfor
tune but will give place to peace uud
Joy when the wise tongue speuks truth
