Ten-Year-Old Julia data Into Bad
Qracee of Mother by Giving
Tramp a Half-Dollar.
“Be not forgetful to entertain
atrangers; for thereby some have en
tertained angels unawares."
The foregoing quotation Is from
chapter 13, verse 2, Book of Hebrews,
and It is Introduced solely because It
constitutes a vital part of this story.

Sunday school. It appears that on a
reoent occasion the Sunday school
teacher had considerable to say about
this matter of “entertaining angels
unawares." Anyway, It made a deep
Impression with Julia.
A few days after the lesson Julia's
mother left her In charge of the house
for a few hours. When the mother re
turned she went to a particular cup
in the cupboard to extract therefrom
one-half dollar. In this cup Is kept
the family pin money, and Julia's
mother knew that she had put fifty
cents there before she had gone out.
But the half dollar was gone. There
was an expression of anxiety on
Julia’s, face and mother scented
“Did you take that money?" asked
the mother, somewhat severely.
Julia broke into tears. “I gave It to
a man that came to the back door,"
sobbed the little girl.
"Gave it to a man!" exclaimed the
mother. “What for?”
“I thought he might be God.” tear
fully replied Julia.—Kansas City Star.

sultan and asked him to sign post
cards. Mulal Hafld consented on con
dition that they would each sing a
song to him. Two of the girls at
once compiled, and the delighted Mu
lal Hafld wrote on their cards words
which, translated, mean: “Like Na
poleon 111., I have visited Les Ardoi
sleres, where I have enjoyed, together
with the calm and freshness of na
ture, the grace and charm of the
voices of Allies. Paulette and Clo
tilda.” The third girl did not know
how to sing, but one of her sisters
having sung for her the sultan added
the name of Gabrielle.
