I People and Events By CELIA MYROVER THE MAGIC PRAYER. The dreary day had brought him grief and woe, The shadows darkened, and with head bowed low In desolation of black thought he came Where through the night his cottage candle flame Bent its soft rays to greet hiin; in the door His wife stood waiting, and upon the floor A child crept to him, cooing: as a dove In the sweet voice of babyhood of love. Things had gone wrong, the day had been in vain; The clouds were thick, a chill was in the rain; Efforts had failed, his task had not been true; His heart was sad, the soul within him blue; The outlook seemed so dreary through that pall Of present failure lowering over all. That even the kiss of loved Hps bend- i ing near Had not the power to comfort and to cheer. The rain still poured at least that In ner storm "Which clouds the soul when, sudden tempests form To dash our hopes and send our plans awry And hide the pleasant sunlight from the eye. But in the night, amid that silence deep When restless hearts seek vainly balm of sleep, He rose, and kneeling, with his clasp hands, said A little prayer beside his humble bed. Oh, glorious changre! What magic had been wrought The cloud blew by, and all the peace be sought For troubled mind and brooding care was borne Into his soul like freshening dews of morn. Life sweetened round hira, courage woke to life, His heart grew strong to He and face the strife. The future slowed with promise, and remade. He faced the day with triumph. He had prayed.

FOR THE BRIDES-TO-BE. Here are two suggestions that may prove helpful to those who plan en tertaining in a novel way for one of the several brides-to-be, whose wed dings will be events of interest in May and early June. The first is an account taken from an exchange of a luncheon given for a recent bride-elect and a few of her intimate friends: "In the center of the luncheon table was placed a little ship sailing on a sea of ferns. The boat had been bought at a toy store and on her deck lay a number of mysterious tiny tis sue paper bundles. Our hostess laugh ingly declared that our ship would 'come in' at the end of the luncheon. "At each place sat a little black cat. Upon investigation we discov ered that tabby's head was removable and that she brought us candies. "The menu cards were decorated with four-leaf clovers and read as follows: Menu Clam Bouillon with Lucky Stars Creamed .Mushrooms Swastike Sandwiches Chicken a la Maryland Parsnip Croquettes Xew Moons over Riht Shoulder Grapefruit Salad Wishbones Ices Fortune Cake Coffee "The bullion was topped with bread stars. browned. Sandwiches were Swastika shape filled with chopped olives. Crescent rolls were passed over right shoulders. Pastry wishbones flavored with cheese, and ices In horseshoe form, were served. The fortune cake contained a ring for each. The ship's treasure was rabbit's foot charms." "To a bride going on a long journey a "Despedida,'" as the Spanish name, it. a goodspeeding and farewell gath ering, may be made novel and es pecially pleasurable. When sending the invitations, re quest the guests to bring some token of good luck, to cost not more than say. twenty-five cents (any very mod est sum, wrapped and tactfully card ed In rhyme, if possible, with the donor's name. Deposited in a basket, on entering, tr.ey are afterward dis tributed at random and read, each reader endeavoring to outdo the others in effective and apt delivery. "Each place card bears a tiny wish bone, those of quail and other very small game being most suitable.

Som? conundrums or pointed stories .apropos of the guest of honor, make conversation at the table, and the old-fashioned candy hearts boar- ing suitable sentiments also create fun. Toasts, either suggested before hand or given at the moment, are delightful. In the way of later amu'errcnt, Hearts are appropriate; or, if is not desirable to play cards, a test of good luck signs and omens is worth while; Slips of paper and the little program pencils can be prepared in a few minutes: with a charactertistic j reward, in the way of fourleaf clover (articles or horseshoe motifs. If some ' thing more lively is wanted, a hunt "for good-luck emblems can have been arranged cither the actual Items, such as wishbones or horseshoes, or their figures cut from heavy paper or i pasteboad and numbered.

Six years ago, while Miss Anna Jarvi was corcmemoraMng the deith of her own rr other on the second Sunday In May, it occurred to her that the diy, falling as it does in a season of bl'.:e sky and blossoms, might well be set aside as an annual festival upon which due tribute of affection and re membrance should be rendered to all mothers.

Their power is far greater than European patriots would be willing to admit.
