a people of one country divided against

as any one, but we have not and will
not retrench from our just demands."

An Kastor Story? *
It wan Kaster Sunday. The streets
were thronged with well dressed peo
ple on their way to Church, and the
ftprlng air was full of the Joyous sound
?'What a hollow mockery!" thought
one sad faced woman as she stood
amid the worshipers In the crowded
transept. The sun shono duly through
th ? painted windows, and the lilies
sprang away from the pillars they en
wreathed as though they yearned to
ward Its warmth and radiance. The
organ tones trembled through the
scented gloom and then rose to a
crescendo of glnd, trlmphnnt strains.
The pastor Btrotched out his hands
toward tho kneeling flock and spoko
of the butterfly and tho chrysalis, tho
marvel of revivified and blossoming
earth. Yet his words were meaning
less, cold and empty in the ears of the
sad, black rohe?l woman who sought
In vain for consolation. She looked
longingly at tho. happy, prosperous
people about her.
Were they Indeed those mansions of
Cod of which tho rector spoke? Had
these people found thorn? Why, then,
wer. they barred to her? Ah, In her
bitterness she doubted if she really
cared for such Joys. All she yearned
for. was the one tender, human smile
which they told her was forever ban
ished. Her heart rose up in a spasm
of rebellion. It could not bo true that
anything so good was Irrevocably

That afternoon she walked along
Country roads through the delicious
Odors of the spring filled air. As she
trod the brown meadows the sky was
aglow with the dulling gold of the
.sunshine, and tin; wind bore to her
the scent of fresh hyacinths.
Still she wandered on. unheeding.
absorbed in the bitterness of her own
haii. until she saw before her a
country churchyard, where a woman,
blac k robed like herself, bent sobbing
above a new made grave. Drawn by
some Intangible chord of sympathy,
she walked over to where the other
knelt at the tomb.
"It is Kastor," said the second wo
man, mechanically lifting her heavy
eyes, "and he is dead." A sudden com
prehension Came to her glance. She
reached oul her hand and touched the
stranger's gown. "You understand!"
she cried. "Von, too"?
"Yes. I understand." answered the
first woman monotonously. "Your story
is also mine. He is dead."
"They are gone from us forever,"
cried the woman at the grave, with a
bllrst of wild weeping. "Ah, for one
sign of immortality, for one hope, one
dream that it is not forever that they
but. sleep to live again!"
And then for both these sorrowing
souls was wrought ti miracle. Life
for the instant threw aside its mask
of death and revealed itself in its se
rene majesty of reality.. The sky be
came more vivid and opaline, the wind
blew more freshly, bearing a thousand
scents; hopafioas were blooming at
their feet ; a bird soared, singing, from
For tin- moment they seomed to feel
the swiil of the earth on Its axis, the
stars revolving in their spores, tho
mighty heavo of the great oceans of
life and knew that there was nothing
In time nor space nor existence but
change, motion and vitality.
In that one brief moment they felt
and knew the presence of their dead
Inllnltoly near and comforting and
were assured beyond all doubl tlint
The freer step, the fuller breath, the
wldo horizon's grander view,
Tho sense of lifo that knows no death,
