The father who strives lor your comfort,
And tolls on from day unto day
Although his steps ever Krow slower,
And his dark loeks are turalnj to tray.

In return he only asks kindness,
And such pa; Is easy to give.
It wris a large, elegant room. The pale
flume of tbe lamp on Hie centre table,
which waa the only light, wat hardly
ufllcient to more than dimly defio tbe
carving of the massive furniture;. AI
the table were two girla, one busily en
gaged in writing, and the other standing
villi her hand oq her sister's shoulder
watching the rapid pen. 11 ;
A little away from the light was a del
icate, fragile looking lady retlinloi'la a
iovidid chair, while at her feet -quietly
played two golden-haiied children.;
"Mamma, dear, it is fiuUhed. See if
it will answer.'' .
The pen stopped, and pushing ber hair
back from her finely shaped forehead,
Alice began :
"A young lady wishes to obtain a po
sition as companion to an elderly lady
or an invalid. She is well educated and
refined, and would be willing and oblig
ing In any way in ber power."
"Oh, Allic," broke in her awter, "how
queer it seemsjust a month ago you
were 'Miss Justin of Beecbwood,' and
now 'willing and obliging,' " (with a
bitter omphasis on the word).
"Josif I" tbe soft voice bad a tone of
rebuke, as Alice glanced toward her
mother's chair. Mrs. Justin's face was
bidden br one thin white band, and
through the slight fingers the tears were
In a moment both girls were by ber
side, Joiie impulsively flinging her arms
around her neck, while Alice gently
drew down tbe hand, and kissed away
tbe falling tears.
A month ago things had been very
different for the Justins. An indulgent
father bad supplied them with every
luxury .and the great balls of Beechwootl
bad echoed voices of youthful gayety.
But the "grim destroyer" bad come and
stricken down in his prime that indul
gent father, and tbe widow who for
some time bad been in delicate health
bad found herself and her children left
not wealthy as every one supposed, but
absolutely not knowing " where next to
turn for the necessities of life.
Mr. Justin, like too many others, had
lived spending freely and carelessly as be
went along, and not looking out for the
future; and when his affairs were settled
and all his debts paid, there waa nothiug
left. At first Mrs. Justin was, atunned ;
but she bad risen to the emergency. She
rented a small cottage, and there with
the help of energetic Joric, was to keep
boarders, and thus support herself and
children, It was a bitter blow for ber
to consent to tLe carrying out of Alice's
plan of going as a companion ; but "ne
cessity knows no law," and s the adver
tisement which we have read came to be
As Alice alighted from the ears after
her journey to tbe home of Miss Grey,
who bad answered ber advertisement, a
gentleman approached ber and ia a plea
sant voice aked if she were "Miss
Jswtia." On her assenting, be motioned
to (he driver of a loxuriout coupe near
by, and sawisUng ker to enter, lifted his
bat costrtonuciy and walked away.
Alice (send tier employer to be an old
witbered-ap iady, with the blackest,
honest pair of eyes that eautsl be act ia a
As the entered tbe room, the eld lady
rose and took her band, saying ia short,
abrupt sentence :
"Bo this ia to be my com pinion. Tea
look young, child. Alice Justin,! think
you wrote was your name f Well I will
call you Alice. H
And so Alice became an inmate of the
quiet bouse. Her duties were light, and,
she found great deal of time to write
loving letters to the dear ones at home.
Before long she met tbe gentleman
whose face had been the first she saw
on her arrival. He was Miss Grey's
lawyer, and often spent a great deal of
time lu the old lady's library writing at
ber dictation, while she knit and her
companion rend. Youth la always at
tracted to youth, and Roland Hall was
young ; and when his writing was done
be would chat animatedly with the little
old lady, who evidently thought bim
perfection, and liked nothing better than
to draw bim out, and show off to advan
tage his fluent conversational powers.
So It was that as time passed, Alice
grew to look forward with delight to tbe
young lawyer's visits. Her life was
monotonous ; but she bad grown to love
tbe eccentric old lady who was so' stern
and bitter to the outside world, but so
lender and kind to ber.
One day, as tkey were sitting In tbe
library, Roland with them, the bell rang
and In a moment tbe door flew open,and
in rushed a radiant vision.
It was a beautiful girl, tall and ex
quisitely formed. -The golden curls,
flowing from beneath a jaunty cap, glit
tered down over an elegant cloak, which
falling carelessly from her shoulders,
showed the snowy fur lining. She
sprang to Miss Grey's side, and, clasping
her arms around her neck, literally del
uged ber with kisses.
"Here I am, my dear Miss Grey, back
again t How glad I am to see you.
Mamma bag given me permission to spend
a whole week with you. Isn't that
Then turning and greeting Roland.sbe
smiled up into his face, as she held out
her little gloved hand. Just then the
quiet figure, in its simple dark dress, by
Miss Grey's side, attracted ber notice.
"And what quiet little body is this V
Alice crimsoned at the rather contemp
tuous tone of the address, and, ruining
her dark eyes, calmly surveyed the saucy
"Julia, let me make you acquainted
with Miss Justin. Miss Justin Miss
The girls bowed, but a hostile look
shot from the wide-open blue orbs as Ju
lia Luttrell mentally said:
: "Only passable as regards looks; but
with dangerous eyes. I suppose she has
been flashing them at Roland before
Site threw off Iter wraps, and soon
was in the midst of a lively, Interesting
account of the travels from which she
had just returned.
As Alice watched tbe rose lint come
and go in the dainty cheek, and the mis
chievous dimples now disclose and now
hide themselves, as the red lips curved
away from the tiny pearl-sbaped
teeth in the charming smiles Miss Lul
trcll was very lavish of, she thought to
herself, with a dull pain at her heart :
"No man living could resist such fas
cination.".' ; -- , ,
. Roland seemed to know bis fair enter
tainer very well, and Alice soon found
herself and Miss Grey only spectators,
as the two jested and laughed together.
. Alice s was a proud nature. She was
one of the kind who guard their love as
a queen guards her most precious jewel;
but that love once bestowed, neither
time nor eternity could cause it to falter
pr change, and she had know for some
time that her heart had found its master.
She had felt, too, that Rolanfl Hall cher
ished for herself something warmertbgn
mere friendship, although no words bad
Boiaod had to come very often that
week, and Julia Luttrell made herself
more bewitching each time.
One day, when the girts were alone to
gether, Julia suddenly said :
"Well, Miss Justin, bow . do yon like
Mr. Hall J" .
Alice colored at the nnexpected qnes
lion, and replied,evasive!y,that of course
she thought him a very fine young man.
s "Oh I bow glad 1 am every one ad'
mires him so."
Something very significant in the
speaker' tone caused Alice to raise) ber
daxk eye quselioniogly to her compan
ion's face. -Julia
Uwahed aad laughedtnd answer

band. On its forefinger gleamed a targe

The next day Julia left be own borne
and thing went along quietly again..
Mis Grey' sharp eye noticed the
change in ber young companion, and
shrewdly suspected tbe cause.
On day sh asked Roland to come np
to ber room, a she wished to talk to him
a little while.
Roland Hall wa Ik son of an old
schoolmate when year before be had
been left an orpban.MIss Grey bad taken
bim into ber lonely home, and be bad
grown to look uponberwilh tbe affection
a son yields to a dearly-loved mother.
"Roland," the old lady began, when
they were alone, "you know bow much
I have thought of Julia how, years
ago, while she was a little, winning girl
I set my heart on you two marrying when
you grew up.
A dark flush rose to the young man
cheek a he assented toiler words.
"Well, Roland," she continued, "I
have noticed for some time back, or
thought I noticed, that those plans con
ceived in my romantic old brain were
only alr-castles, after all. I havo thought
I saw an expression dawning in your
eyes, my boy, when they looked upon
another dear girl, very different to that
with which they ever looked'upon Julia
and I was glad ; for as Julia has ma
tured I miss in ber those noble, woman
ly qualities I would like to see in my
dear Roland's wife ; yet, If Julia Is your
choice, I will never say another word."
Roland started to his feet, and clasp
ing the old lady's band, ip a voice trem
tiling with suppressed emotion, exclaim
ed: .:; '
"Sly dear friend my mire than moth
er ; you have sees rightly. I do love
your gentle companion who could
know her but to love her t But I knew
your plana for Julia and myself, and I
Here he paused suddenly. i
"But what, Roland r
"1 do not think Alice loves me. I
thought at one time I could, win her
sweet affections; .but of late she is
changed. She avoids me." "
The keen eyes softened as they rested
on the young man's ingenous features,
and Miss Grey softly said :
Ask her, Roland. 'Faint heart never
won fair lady,' and never deserved to,
And so it was that when Alice stole
away one afternoon to her favorite naok
a little vine-wreathed arbor in the gar
denRoland found her there.
Aa he entered Alice rose to go, but bis
Arm clasp detained her, while in ardent,
impetuous words, he flooded her heart
with the bliss of knowing her secret love
need be secret no longer. Timidly Alice
raised ber glorious eyes ber one beauty
and read his face. Then she faltering
ly whispered, "Julia."
"Julia I And what of her f Ah!" (as
a light broke in upon him) "did you
think I loved her loved her when I
knew you, my darling! Why. we were
never more than friends never!" and
then the small figure was gathered close,
and tbe young lips met in that never-to-be-forgotten
first kiss of love.
The next letter Alice received from
borne contained news which made her
feel sadly. Beech wood, their dear old
home, had been sold.
"Allie." wrote Josie, "w do not know
who is the purchaser ; but whoever it is
he Is having it fitted up In princely
style." Then, with favorable report of
the mother's health and many questions
about the "new brother," the letter
Of course Alice bad to go home to
make her preparation for ber marriage

Miss Grey (aid she was tea old to to at

placed ber in her betrothed husband's
care for the homeward journey.
It did not take many day to convince
tbe mother that her child had chosen
wisely and well, and Josie and the little
brothers gave him a plaee in their hearts
So no cloud-even "a large as a man'
band,'' obscured tbe tun of Alice' hap
piness, as sue stood by Roland's side and
promised to love, honor and obey.
Tbe wsMkiiag tour was a long one.
After many delicious slays, spent lett in
one twatttU al pot and (ben in anether
they bent their step homeward".
It had been decided that they were
first to spend some time at Alice's own
home. So when tbe depot carriage did

on into tbe ground of her old borne,

-was it that Alice became so dated that

derstood anything f
That evening, when they were all as
sembled in tbe dear familiar library,
sow ablaze with light, which touched
and brought out luxurious detail, Alice
wa told a wonderful story.
Hiss Grey was ber mother's own aunt.
Tear before, the old lady, then not old
but just recovering from grief at the to
of her betrothed husband, had taken her
dead slstei's Infant daughter under her
roof, and into ber heart, as later sk
bad Uken Roland, The infant grew up
into a lovely girl, and became attached
to gentleman whom Miss Grey did not
like. The young couple bad been for
bidden to meet; but taking tbe matters
in their own hands, bad eloped. -
"That girl, Alice, was your mother. I
have an unforgiving nature, my dear,"
Miss Grey continued, "and when I found
what she had done, I vowed I Defer
would see or forgive her. But child
God's ways are myterinus ; when I read
your advertisement and recoguized your
name Alice Justin your mother's nttme
I had given it to herself all the old
love for your mother came back to my
heart, and I sent for you. And so my
precious Alice, you have been the means
of bringing back to me my youthful
heart, for I have never been really happy
since your mother and I parted.
By this time Mrs. Justin's- arms were
around the old lady's neck, and they
were sobbing together from very happi

Mini Grey did not go back to ber lone

with the music of youthful voices. Mra
Justin's health is steadily improving, ami
Josie queens it right royally a "Miss
Justin, of ateechwood."
Roland and Alice vie with each other
in smoothing their dear old friend's de
clining years, and it Is a pretty sight to
see the look of peace and content which
lights up the wilhered face, as ber sy.s
look upon their wedded happiness.
