The Albaugh bill which 1 likely to I e-
couie a law, in this state provides for tlie
election of a township board of education
direct by the jieople one member for each
sub school-district, abolishes the local di
rectors and puts the management of all tlie
schools of the township in tlie hands of the
central board the hiring of teachers, the
levying f taxes, selection of te.xt-biiks
and ail. It is of the kind ol legislation
that has been advocated in the Kepi'dlic.
for years and we are glad to record the
good prospect of its enactment.
It was quite natural that the republican
party should Introduce the local option prin

mangers of the prohibition party make a
mi-take In opining the principle, for that
is just what they are doing. Many of the
members of the party approve the idea ai d
disire amendments which will make tLe
law more effective, but the leaders seem to
think not that the principle is not right
for they approte ol its application in
Georgia but that the adoption and enforce
ment of local option by the republicans will
piove a fatal blow to their own party or
ganization. In this they are right. It
would. Their rank and file would fall in
and march into the republican ranks and
they would find thenisches a lot of shiver

their caue more than a mere partisan tri
The Xcw Em, of this city, which is the
s'ate organ of tlie prohibition party, has re
peatedly stated that the Presbyterian synod
of Ohio lias condemned the Dow law, and
has intimated that, as a result of this alleged
state of things Presbyterian ministers and
e'ders are "in a box." The fa;t is that the
synod, as the official minutes show, con'
leraned that part of the Dow law only
which "gives the municipal authorities tlie
right to allow the opening of saloons on the
Sxbbath. as legalizing the violation of the
law of God, and as lending the sanction of
the state to Sabbath desecration." This U
not a condemnation of the Dow law, but
ouly of a section of it. The principles and
provisions of the law in general are regard
ed by true temperance peop,e rUht and
wholesome. It is not the consummate, ripe
fruit of all legislation, the nltliwi fmlc of
all enactments but a great deal of good has
already been accomplished through it. II

third party cranks should lie disregarded.
As a matter of fact, it is not the mana

among all the rocks and flowers, looking

Not that it made any odd to Dennis what
I thought alsmt it all." I doubt if In thoe
days he knew nny ninre than that I existed,
going hi happy way with hi hesd in the
cloud, and eyes and heart only for his love.
So he married her and took hr away,
and a happier nest of singing bird than
that in the little cottage among tho rocks
and flower could nowlwrw have lieen
found, u nle it were in my own heart, at
the sight of the happiness there.
But then mother fell sick, and it tpok
nil uiy time to cara for her; and I couldn't
go up to Iuie's very often, for I had every
thing to do at home and was tired out hy
nightfall an.l often up half the night lo
sides. Ixiie couldn't very well come down
often, anil if she had come, she wouldn't

Once. I remember, she said tn in. "I don't

For mother died presently. And then it
turned out that she had been living on her
little property more than we had dreamed,
and IiOuie's "outfit and her own long illness
and its bills had uswl up her money And
when everything was mid, there was only
enough left for me to hire one room as a
sort of refuge when I came home at night
from working at my trade, for I had quite
a knack at dressmaking. I did net put on
mourning; tor I wa glad tiiat mother
wv; out of pain, and I was glad that she had

with hr black crapes falling around her,
to waxy, fair ami nsy and transparent' Of
conrsn she didn't mu motlier the way I
did. How could she, with Dennis waiting
on her every wUhf And she didn't seem to
want anybody but Dennis, cither; so I
didn't sj a great deal of her, only when
she had something new to make np, or
omething old to alter over; and then she
and Dennis were out, mwt of the time,
strolling along the iwka or pluming a new
flower garden, or she was going to meet
him coming from his work or running into
tho next lieighlsor's neross tho )asture, and
I had almost nothing of her, except at try-ing-on
times. Ami I will confess that try
ing on times were trying times and no
wonder. For if you had such a jerfect
little figure as Louie had, you would want
your dress tn look ns if you hnd Iwen
melted and poured into it, toil. I usil to
wonder at Louie then, a little sometimes;
not for not sitting at home sewing and help
ing me on tho work, bicanse you might as
well have asked a humming bird to do
that; hut for not taking more interest in
tho house and keeping things trig and tidy.
And I used to Im afraid that if 1 were Den

bouse must often have lvn thoroughly un
comfortable to Dennis ho never gave n, sijii
that it was not Paradie itself; and I cam
lo the conclusion that he didn't really imss
those other things, nnd was satisfied with
what he had.
I used to go up into the Eden sometimes
without bsing sent for, and mend up cvery

but l couldn't ?.o so very often, on account
of my work: and, besides I had n seasatlou

through the orchard with the 11', and the
i Isiy was crowing and je.mping and catching
at the benJing !-wi;lw, and catching at hi
father's glint mustache, anil rulbing hi
littl wet l'p all over Dennis' face, chir
ruping and joyous: and I couldn't help it, I
ran to meet them.
"You sec." said Dennis as he let ni have
him liark. "blond I thicker tliau water,
Oh! wliat u long journey I felt a if that
baby hnd lxs?n on ns I took him and ismiM
hardly have doue kissing him.
'"Come," kail Dennis laughing. ' leave
something of him for me."
It was Ihe first time he hail laughed since
that child wa lorn. And the darling had
gone, along jouiney n journey into the
infinite depths of a father's heart.
Well, after that. Denni muldn't get
home early enough in the afternoon, and it
seemed as if ho hated to go away in the
morning, and Sundays ha Ivad the baby in
his arms fromnioining till night. And in
the evening when I sat sowing on the little
clothes, he would come and sit opposite, or
where ho could see bow the work went on;
and ho brought home all sorts of little im
possible toys, and he talked and sang to
him, and walked with him; and the baby
begnn to look out for bis coming a much
as 1 did. And nil that, of course, helped
me a g(I deal in my work about the house,
for I kept everything as fine and orderly as
a honeycomb; only, n ith the baby to lend
and see to, I sometimes had to it up nights
to il it.
' ( shall call him Louis, for his mother,"
uii I Dennis, one night.
'"Do you think you can lear it?" I asked.
' To "hear him called Lotus' Yes Ho
i tOue over again," soid Damn's.
And I couldn't tell you how pleasant life
grew to bia wo watched the child grow,
unfolding like, n rose. There was abso
lutely n sort of rivalry between ns presently
as to who should discover hi, tirit tooth.
When he took his first step, it was between
Dennis' arms ami mine, as we both sat on
the floor. And when ho spoke his first
word, how wa listened to learn if it were
Dennis' name or mine. " The day wasn't
long enough for u to watch hi dear loveli
ness in. And I tninic uenni was envious
of rr.e for having him nights; but ho couldn't
I never shall forget, though, the night the
!,aby hl the croup, and we both hunj
over him, fearing every breath would be
the last; nnd. when ease came, how we both
broke down and cried together; nnd as we
looked out the window and saw the first
flush of dawn, and the waning moon and
the morning star glittering ont of it with
Ineffable brightness; that star seemed to be
shining on some herald angel's forehead.
So time went on; and I thought then it
would not be easy to see how w could ba
happier; for eveu the memor of Louie was
softened into aomething that was hardly
a grief to u in our love of her boy, though
sometimes I used to wiuider if the little fel
low that went w ith her was ns sw-eet as tho
one that staid with us.
But when tb dar child was about 3
rears old, there come a vsnafce into Eden.
A snake. A whole nert of them! It seemed
as if every girl in tho whole village haa
Just found mt what a rare and charming
tierson I was and how- pleasant it was 1st"
aft"rr.ion"p where I lived, and how nico
it was to -e uj evening to -.. me. And
sometimes ier;ns muui have to go home
with them; hnd som-tunes he wouldn't, bat
just went out the' other way, and never
erne home till they'd gone; and, somehow,
one thing vas almost as unpleasant as tho
other, and I coukki't s.iy why it worried
me I orty knew it did. And I used to
take the boy and go off by myself und cry.
For, of course, sooner or later, Denni would
marry some one of those terrible girls; ho
couldn't help himself; they woukin't let him
help himself; It would come about after a
while as naturally as water runs down hill.
And then there would bo a stepmother
for my boy, and Heaven ouly knew what
would become of him. And what woidd be
come of me?
And by this 1 gave out completely. I
should see Dennis no more. No more of
that dear voice aud presence, and cheery
way of his. And all at onto it came over
me, in a flash of horror and shame, whal
was the matter with me; and then 1 felt
that, hapjien what would. I really must go
But I couldn't go anl leave the boy: and

outgrown, although it was gettiag to bo
short aud fitful: ami, thinking that Dennis
wns there to see. or knowing be wns and
thinking nothing, I went out by myself,
down the field bv the railroad cut; for
there wa an apple tree there where 1 gath
ered the windfalls, nnd 1 liked, toil, to sit on
the liank and see the tram da-h in the cut.
I hnd mv apron full ot apples, and, a I
came bock, I s-tn.v.1 loitering o moment or so

and liking all the rush and roar and rattle

there, in tho center of the track he stood,
waving his little hands and shouting to the
