Alas, i never dreamed that tin first reverse would come to through me. Yet, was I. to be blamed ? Ever a hard worker, one particu larly hot summer I had double dutA to perform at the bank, and I over tasked my ability. - I remember falling with a dull crash beneath my desk one day, ami it was weeks ere I was conscious that I lay at home in my own bed. carefully tended by Annie and Tnvde. I had been stricken down with brain fever, and the doctor had sai; the. struggle back to health and strength would be long and serious, for my system was wholly debilitat ed by over-work. , Alter about six weeks, and 1 had been declared out of danger, I awoke one.' evening, after taking a long nap, to find the room deep in twi- - light and very silent. I lay some time in a drowsy state, when suddenly I was aroused by the unmistakable vound of a sob close bv me. fcMovrd by the )v. earnest voice of Trnde. -Don't civ, Annie, dear, 'she said, soothingly, '"'you'll wake him." "Oh. but. Tru le. what are wo to do?" faltered my wife. "We shall pull through all right, dear, never fear!"' was the brave re ply. "But every cent of the money is o-one! There's a month's rent due. and no end of little outstanding "bills. Besides, the doctor won't be coming much longer, and then, of course there'll be his bill!" Heaven help me! her words al most killed me! But even then little Truue was equal to the occasion. "We must make some money, Anr,1'e," she snid firmly. "How?" in despair. "It is the height of the blackber ry season, and the fruit is unusually fine. I shall go out at 5 o'clock to morrow morning, pick several quart., and sell every one of them at the hotels before noon. I shall do the same sis long as the berries last; you will then see whether we can make a little money or not!" I could have' arisen and fallen at her feet in worship of her heroism; but poor Annie took life more seri ously; she seemed proof against Trude's hopefulness. ''Oh. that could never succeed," she sighed. 'Well, I'm going to try, anyway !" was the undaunted rejoinder.
