The word "pal" is a western
word, coined in the expressive
ness of the --reat open plain, to
signify absolute companionship
and- unquestioned fidelity. It
ought -to be a classic. A young
man hesitates to tell his mother
everything; he is slow to con
Lde reyerses to his sweetheart;
his teacher might misunder
stand and his friend prove faith
less. His "pal" never.

My mother was rhy sweet
Often at night, when others
of the family were asleep, she
used to steal into my room, and
by the slow burning embers, we
chatted of things such as the
average mother and son never

scripts and she counselled and
advised, but never rebuked.
Often her life-history of her
dream of love, marrying the
only sweetheart she ever knew
as a tall, beautiful mountain
girl, and going hand in hand
with him through the years un

by its sweet .simple recital.
She loved to tell the story and
