snatched the
love light from the eye, the carnation j
from t^e cheek, the ruby tint from the
Hp, and left the face very white and
still, the lips forever mute. I turn to a
life-size portrait over the mantle. Here
is Nelje with all her rich, warm nature
in herfece; brownest eyes, with brown,
curling lashes, in which all intense lov
ino-ness of her heart lies mirrored; red
lips foÄver curved in smiles that seem :
lost ready to speak and welcome me in
the old/loving wav; a bright, warm, |
womanly, whining face. 0, Nellie! we

he most of all—vour faithful, wifely
votion. the constant ministrations of
your "loving hands and willing feet
made his home a hallowed place,
tin ecstasy of bliss. Your
glorified his present, brightened all his
future, and now lonely and desolate
and camfortless he sits by his desolate j
hearth. It is terrible to see a stronsrfof
hearth. It is terrible to see a strong!of
man, in the prime of manhood, standing
reer with undisputed talent on the on( a
hand, sure, speedy success on the oilier:
a man to whom life is dear only as it
blesses those who are dearer to him
than life, to whom life is precious only
as its beauty and glory crown them—
terrible to see such a man with all the
purposes of his life suddenly struck j
from him—with all his nature rent and
torn by such agony as conies to a hu
man soul but once in a life-time, l e tha t
life-time long or short; terrible to see'
the current of his life wrenched from
its channel, as by some volcanic sh
the bed of a river is upheaved and
waters forced to hew out for thems<
a new passage; terrible to see all ....
chords of his being swept so rudely t r
that ever after they will only attune
themselves in the minor key.

Jet Nellie! In tbat*f..r-oir la.,-1
you walk in white does it
u to see this? Does vour hearty
1 still to its earth-love veirn to
t him? to hush the little'
mothers bosom? The child will wax
and grow; so<jn tongue, and hands,
and feet will learn the lessons of life ;
the baby's crowings will develop into
childish, lisping prattle; the little
hands will be swift to do mischief; the
wavering little feet will grow steady
and*assured; then, perchance, be quick
to enter forbidden paths. There will
be no mother's exhaustless tenderness
to sympathize with his little griefs and
joys; no mothers loving hands to check
and guide his wayward steps. Doubly
orohaned. because no memnrv nf »!
orphaned, because no memory of a
dead mother's love goes with him, with
its hallowed influence, to shape his fu
ture. Tlie sorrowful earth-valleys will
open their bright but false vistas;
paths bordered with roses will beckon
him on; but the paths are paved with
sharp stones; the roses are full of
thorns; the eager little hands will be
rudely torn; the darling little feet
bruised and cut? Other children will
pass by, tenderly lifted over the sharp
stones; the roses will be plucked for
them by careful hands and the stems
freed from thorns; be will perceive
this, yet dimly understand. Here he
will learn his first lesson of sorrow.
With his little heart full of unutterable
longing—his great, browu. questioning
eyes full of tears—his little mouth
tremulous with expectancy, he will
send a £een, sharp knife to the father's
heart—"Papa, papa, Where's my mam
ma?" Will the portrait over the man
tle satisfy? Will a toy placed in the
hand of a starving child bring a smile
to the famished lips? He will turn
away hungry and disappointed; you
can*t throw Shams in the face of
child with impunity; neither *he will
trust everything or Bolbifcg. The por
trait over the mantle will not satisfv.
Theca must,^e the dear, familiar faie
ever beside the nursery door; the dai
ly nestling to the mother's heart ; the
every-day caress; the silent,. down
And reoonmled
dropping touch of loving hands; the
3 tinier, loving voice, paücnt and
forgiving always; the visible, tang
presence cf its mother.

It will be better so. There would be
such narrowing down of life, and heart,

ever grow outward, and still outward
