- 'When Annie and I were married
we took Gertrude to live with us;.l
could not bear Ihe thought of " t lit
lovely girl going to meet the Vor!:
in some menial occupation, and An
liie was thankful to have her sistei

After the birth of Baby Grace slit

years as happy as birds in a ner
. making much of the blessings v
- bad, thinking little or nothing oi
our privations.
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
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.
After; a short pause Annie said,
Trude, we are ist a Uesperte
-rtruit; why couldn't you write to
(ieruld Day ton and aslc him to hiA
i us some money ? - jT
