ihe visited a number of stores and
inally came to one which displayed a
arge number of beautiful hats. She
ras having a perfectly splendid time
rying on. At last she found one lying
u the counter which took her eye lmlediatcly.
She put it on and was intantly
pleased. "What a relief," she
ighed. "I'll just hurry home and get
9 bed and wont' I look like somebody
a that beauty tomorrow!" She stepied
toward the nearest clerk, her
ocketbook open when what do you
uppose happened? Up hurried a highi
indignant woman who snatched the
at out of her hand with his remark'.
I'll thank you for my hat." Just that
nd nothing more. The young lady
urried out of the store. She too,

Green and Bloom.
Today the hills are covered with
reen. One scarcely realizes that this
$ so until an automobile ride is taken,
long the roads which wind it and out
mong them. The green just now is
oft and vounc and just above it the
recs are coming in bud or in bloom.
>ut in tbo country, groups of apple
rees in bloom give the landscape a
such of hazy white which carried out
a the shape of the tree look like
louds over in one corner of the world
lose to the ground. The whole city
list now is especially beautiful beause
of the extreme youth of everyhing
new in bud and bloom. Many,
aany yards have hyacinth and tulip
nd daffodils still in flower.
A Lady and a Bird.
Saturday a very pretty little sceno
ras enacted in Comuntzis store in
lain street A small, ragged boy
ame in to look at the many birds an:l
unnles and baskets which fascinated
ilm from a safer outside view. Chilren
are either abnormally timid or
reposterously bold. This boy was of
he timid variety but his big desire for I
heart to heart communion with
hose wonderful things carried him
traigbt to them. He at first stood,
ap off, just watching. Such a large:
ounter of pretty baskets, darling
unnies with carrots and birds which
Imost flew. The birds interested him
lost. He touched gently the wings
f one and found tbey would wave
ack and forth as though just about
a carry the soft whito body between
hem up to the ceiling and right on out
he door, just as soon as somebody
pened it. The boy had whole worlds
f imagination for I saw him look up.
allowing that bird which flew invisaly,
and out tho door; and a far away
mile, so very faint, illumined his face
s he came back to earth again ana
a the bird. He caressed it's shining
rings and touched its bead eyes. And
e turned away and sighed.
It's very hard to go back to the time
rhen you were a boy and wanted
omething very badly?especially if
ou aro a girl now. It's equally hard
j imagine the state of mind of a
oungster who seldom gets anything
e wants,?because there are so few
f us who haven't had what we wantd
at one time or another. I don't
now just what that bird cost. It was
0 doubt a trifling sum which brought
ntold joy to the heart of the lad who
jnged for it, to have and to keep for
is own. I watched him idly, intersted.
But it wasn't I who went over
3 the child just as he turned to leave
he store in his little ragged suit and
arn cap and too-worn shoes, and bandd
him the money with which to buy
ho bird. I don't know who the womn
was. She very quietly and without
he least demonstration, pressed the
oin in the child's hand. She didn't
uy the bird openly so that everybody
ould call her a very gentle-hearted
roman; but instead she did her teller
deed so that no one saw. It was
ust by chance that I saw it myself.
Good Programs.
A most pleasing Easter program was
iven at the Diamond street church
