At tiie foot of the cradle sat Donna her sister age ten, knitting quietly and watching the face ot the little sleeper and listening to the melody of the song birds as they hopped from bow to bow enjoying the sunshine and singing their little ones to sleep. While the gentle breezes rocked them to and fro. Iu fact it was one of those ideal mornings which nearly always precede the terrible thunder storms of which you have possibly heard occur the plains of the central states. Little Nell had been left in Donna's care while her parents made a trip to the city to get provisions and made the laBt ment on their little home for which they had been struggling for several years to save. At noon as she went to feed the chickens the clouds seemed to be gather ing, soon the thunder rolled, the light ening flashed aud the wind blew. She became very much frightened. Baby Nell seemed to understand some thing was wrong and screamed until Donna held her fast in her arms. Donna had seen many cyclones and knew the best thing to do was to run to a cave hut there was none, so she took baby and ran to a deep ditch and lay fiat on her face holding baby. The wind blew dirt over her till it seemed she would be buried alive, was afraid to look up. After a little the wind storm passed, she got up and to lier dismay the house which had been har home as long as she could remember was goue. But she was happy to think she had saved her baby sister. When her parents came home, they were thankful to think that God had guided Donna and thru her had saved both their children. was , , T ley often talk of the time when they came so near losing theii darlings and in their nAivpru rin not fnrirat u, u i? 0 in tneir prayers do not forget the lather in Heaven who careil for their little nnp« wn icareuior tneir little ones during heir absence. on pay She Mrs. A.
