I N A N I A THE CHILDREN'S HOUR, THE THUNDERSTORM. "Hello, Uncle Jack! Great morning, sn't it?"" "Splendid, Leo, splendid—all blue nd erold, eh?" "We're going nutting, Uncle Dick," he small boy went on, "away past lawyer's farm, a whole crowd of us )oys Jim Watts and Prank Gilroy ind John Boyd and Peter Doyle, lenry Lynch and Bill Collins and ne." "Me!" repeated Uncle Dick. "A boy n the fifth grade says 'me is going'?'* "Oh, say! Uncle Dick, I meant I! it's hf'rd to remember grammar on Saiumay—especially when you're go -vtting. I've got my lunch here," lained, holding up a basket for Dick's inspection. But Uncle Dick had waved his hand ind turned the corner. Leo sat down on the top step to v,i it for the boys. Inside the hall .look struck nine. "There's twenty minutes yet," he h- ught. "I'll run down and ask f'rotnie Clarke to go with us—and o St. Paul's a tiny visit." snatched off his cap as he ran wide stone steps to St. Paul's. \s early and the big church was st empty. Leo slipped into a pew way up the middle aisle, and i'p voice inside whispered, "you •m't get too near to our Lord, you .now," he quickly slipped out again ind went right up to the altar rail. After a moment he raised his head and looked straight at the tabernacle. "Dear Lord," he began, "I'm going mitfing this morning with some other boys, and I want to ask You to take care of us. I wish I could do some thing big for You today, something brave and grand like the knights did for their kings long, long ago." Then the curly head went down and Leo listened while a wee voice seemed to whisper to his heart: "You can be kind to every one you meet today for My sake and offer every little thing you do to Me." "Even climbing trees and picking up nuts?" "Yes." "t will, dear Lord, I will. I offer you all my thoughts and words and everything I do as acts of love for You. Good-by, dear King, I must hurry now to the boys." Jimmy was putting in wood when Leo found him. The heap looked very large and Jimmie looked unhappy. "Wish I could go," he said when Leo had invited him to join their party, "but this wood has got to be put in the shed before noon. Aunt Martha ^aid so—and piled up, too. I'd like to SO." Could you go if it was put m?" i asked. Sure! But it's going to take two u s, I know—it did the last time." eo looked thoughtful. He placed lunch basket on the ground and ist his hands deep into his kets. Say," he began, "it wouldn't take en of us two hours to put it in. I'll the other boys." They came in a hurry, whistling, vn the street. In exactly twenty uites the wood was in the shed and en pairs of eyes looked with satis ion at the neat pile. Vunt Martha," Jimmie called in •ugh the kitchen door, "may I go awyer's farm?" course not there's the wood to in." r's all in," said Jimmie, "and piled :oo—the boys helped." "hen run along," called Aunt Mar who was making doughnuts, and 't like to be bothered. Jimmie went along and some the sun shone brighter and the looked bluer and the trees more ly than they did two hours ago. hey were far out in the country at foot of a little hill when Jimmy ped suddenly and pulled Leo's •ive. I—I didn't bring my lunch, Leo," whispered, "and the other boys all ,-e lunches. I forgot to ask Aunt rtha. I'm going home." ^eo turned and looked at him. "You are the queerest boy, Jimmie," began. "After helping you with all tt wood you're going to leave us! ing back home? No, Jimmie, you're rning right along—that's what you're ^oing to do. And what's more you're k-oing to eat half" the lunch in this bas ket—see? What's more, you've got to •carry this basket the rest of the way. r«B carried it half way already. Let's •re who can get to the top of the hill t." And away they ram They ate ~their ch—and no indoor luhches ta£te lunch in the woods—some sitting .. the grass under great trees, others n top of the old stone fence. Me for the trees and the nuts," aaiil Frank, springing «p. "We'll have to hustle to get these baskets filled." And the little band dispersed. 'Come along over here, Jimmie," .tied Leo. "Guess there's nuts enough on this tree to fill ten baskets, so we needn't go any further. My, but that's a dandy breeze." v Half an hour later the two boys swung lightly to the ground. "Why, where are all the other fellows?" Leo asked, for there was no one else in sight. "They cut across the field and went down that little hill a long time ago. gay, Leo, it's going to rain. Just look at those clouds!" Leo looked up and a big drop splashed into his face. From the distance came a low rumbling noise. •Louder and louder it grew and the lightning zig-zagged hi the darkened sky. *Oh! If only there was a house anr!" said Jimmie. "Come, Jimmie, let's run," called Leo. "We can crawl under the old over there by the fence. Hurry, Jiurry." There were terrific crashes of thun der now that seemed to shake the 0rtbt 404 blinding flashes of ttpi- ning. The boys trembled and clung together in sudden fear. "Oh! it's the end of the world, Leo— I'm afraid, I'm afraid," sobbed Jimmie. "Do you think we'll be—" But here another terrible crash and a blinding streak of lightning made him crouch closer to Leo. "Let's say our prayers," began Leo in a strained voice, trying to be very brave. "Then you know we'll be all right if we are struck. I'm afraid we're going to be," he whispered. "Wouldn't you like to go to heaven Jimmie?" A queer sound came, from Jimmies white lips. "Oh, Leo, you're all right, you'll go to heaven, but I won't. I've been bad, awful bad, Leo, and God never would forgive me. Besides I don't know any prayers 'cept 'Now I lay me." Oh!" he blurted, "I wish, I wish "Listen," Leo pleaded, "you're sorry, aren't you, Jimmie? Sorry for all your sins?" Jimmie nodded. "Just think of all our Lord suffered for us, Jimmie—it was our sins that made Him suffer so, and—and He did it just because He loved us and wants us to be in heaven with Him. Now, Jimmie, just try to be sorry for all the bad things." "I am sorry, sorry, because tshey made Him feel bad." "You know," Leo began again, "if we are really and truly sorry for our sins and tell God so, He'll forgive us. No matter how big our sins are He'll forgive them. Yes, He will, Jimmie." "But I'm not a Catholic, Leo," sobbed Jimmie. "Well, you can't help that, I sup pose—anyway^ you've been baptized, Jimmie, your Uncle John said so." And while the thunder rolled and the lightning dashed, Leo said the act of contrition in a voice that shook ever so little, and Jimmie repeated the words after him. "Now," he said, "we're all right, Jimmie. Let's hold hands and keep our eyes closed tight and just wait." And the rain came down harder and harder. The summer storm had swept by. Patches of blue were here and there, and the rain had stopped. Down the long road sped the two little dripping figures. "I feel happy, Leo," said Jimmie, trying to get his mouth ready to whis tle, "and I tell you what, I'm going to be good after this. Perhaps Aunt Martha'll let me go to church with you sometimes. I'll ask her anyway." Over in the west the old sun flashed a good-night smile on the world and slipped down, down behind the hills. HIBBING, MINN. MERCHANTS & MINERS STATE BANK HIBBING, MINN.
