I mar vel how quickly the doubt in my mind bore fruit In disobedience, and how speedily our wrong was discov ered. We seem to have lived a hun dred years in this one day. Shame covers me more completely than these skins which were placed upon us by the hand of God to cover our nakedness. How can we ever get right with the Friend whom we have so grievously wronged?' 'The man replied: 'There Is yet a ray of hope In my breast. Didst thou not observe the look of tender grief on his face when he discovered that we had eaten of the forbidden i j fruit? His words of condemnation ' were as arrows in our souls; but there was so much of grief in his tone that I cannot believe he has cast us off forever. Did he not promise victory to thy seed over the serpent and his brood?' As the man uttered these words there was a hiss in the weeds behind them, and a great ser pent glided by them. The woman shuddered and threw herself into the arms of her husband for protection from the common foe. A moment later and the roar of a lion was heard in the forest not far away.

"Perhaps Rufus has grown bo bis and wise that he no longer likes to hear Bible stories," said Mr. Brown, as he turaed with a smile and looked rest; but the alarms of the forest without and the excitement of soul within kept them awake until the morning sun touched the clouds in the sky with splendor.

For to be consist ently cheerful is the dynamic way to be happy. Inconsistent cheerfulness is of no especial value. To be cheerful be cause one is enjoying life is a mat ter of course. Consistent cheerful ness is another and a braver matter. 1 It mpans first, a firm helief that God is good and that all things work to gether for good to His obedient children. It means, secondly, a determina tion to be courageous and nelpful and pleasant-tempered at every mo ment and under all conditions. Cheer fulness must have backbone, or it collapses at the first crisis. But with backbone, it becomes second nature an unspeakable improvement on the original. True cheerfulness may be called voluntary happiness. By the great psychological law of reflex action, the outward smile (forced to the lips, perhaps, by sheer will power at times) reflects itself in the inner soul, like a ray of sunshine from a prism, and dances in the heart, even on a wall of difficulty. It is impossible to keep outwardly cheerful, day after day, without be coming inwardly happier in the end. By being cherful, one comes to be happy. They belong together. One can have both or neither as one chooses. "Isn't it wonderful she can be so serene and lovely," we hear it said often, "when she has had such ter rible trouble in her life?" But there is nothing marvelous about it, It is the working of cause and effect.

As Mrs. Brown added an encour aging word, Mr. Brown inquired: "How would you like to hear about the experiences of Adam and Eve on the day in which, they were driven out of Eden?"
