One day while I was Off at college,
I was sitting by the window and while
i was thinking of "Home, Sweet,
? ionic" ami dreaming of by-gone days,
the curtain <>i the past seemed dimly
10 fade away and the one revealing
the future heran slowly to rise.
I was walking down the streets of
a certain large city. All the people
seemed strange, and I knew no one
and even the sign boards were new

tall, black-haired man got up to take
his text. I magin?* my surprise when
1 beheld the person of one of our okl
graduates <>i' '09, Ernest Machen.
Wonder never ceases for when he
had finished the sermon, he an
nounced that our returned missionary
from China, Miss Willie Dorroh, would
give us a little talk on. "Missions and
the progress of our work in foreign
holds.a great many of the congre

former chum and school-mate, whom
I had not seen in so long a time.
The next day. in glancing over one
of the local newspapers. 1 saw where
cards had been issued, announcing
the approaching wedding of two of
the most popular young people in
town on Wednesday evening at 8:30
o'clock. I thought, of course, it
would be useless to read further as
1 Would not likely kllOW the couple
but on the appointed evening, when
all the people had assembled into
church, and the wedding march was
started. 1 saw my dear old companion,
Mary Sullivan come slowly down the
aisle where she was nut by another
of our school-mates, Mr. Kugono
Brown, and they were united in the
holy bonds of matrimony.
On the following afternoon. 1 went
into a hook-store to get a good novel.
The clerk picked up two or three
hooks and said to me, "Have you read
any id" I.aura Roberta Dorroh's
works?" I answered "No." so he
showed them to nie. They were en
titled. "Ways ami Means of Growing
Tall." and a book on "How to Klirt
with Vein' Kycs." I took these two
ami after reading them, I recognized
the characteristics of one who had
been one oi' my school-mat ts and

Her reward should he great on ac
count of the happiness she creates.
Hut all this fades away, and I pass
a very small house. On the porch
on a little table sits a howl of a dozen
or two of gold and silver fishes. In
a little cage hanging from the top of
the house are three canaries, and out
of doors are dogs of every descrip
tion. Hut on the porch nits a little
woman, dressed in a very plain, yet
neat black dress, while purring all
around her are cats of all sizes.
Now. of course, you know who this
is. hut for fear that you may not rec

again and behold, I saw a gnat, big,

me. After noticing these two per
