""Why, where are von iroinir, Isabel
Kasltnaii? Not in the farm yard, Bare
les, Alms Lome Alayell, 1 am ROini;
ntotho farm-y.'ii'il, suiulv," replied Isa
bel, with a mischievous light in her
biir "ray eyes, and a charmini' smile on
her pretty curved lips, as she opened tho
iiato lcad'uiy to that place. ''Nowhere
Isu can we bo eonlulenlial without liiu-
n'ui'I the risk of beiii'' overheard. The
farmer's family are in the orchard ; Char
ley and a half-dozen of his playmates aro,
playni!' in the llowcr-Karilen : there s a
yottii couple in the parlor at tho piano,
iu tnakui' love,atm she not niakini' inn-
sic.and a still younger couple whispering
anil giggling in tho bay window; auntie
is in my room enjoying splendid misery;
and grandma is in aunties room darning
stockinirs. And so, if vou really want to
hear 'right away why I am here instead
of at one of my usual suinnierhatiiits,you
e'en follow me to thu farm-yard. Hesides
wlneli speaking with increased anima
tion "I have latch, strange as it may
seem to you, developed quite a passion
tor iiirm yards.
"It doesn t seem at all strange to me,
my dear, for during our ten year's friend
ship you ve always been developing sonio
odd passion or other. But l'vo never
lost faith in you. Lead on ; I'll fol
low." nd stepping daintily and gracefully
unimpeded by trains or demi trains, thu
young girls threaded their way through
the crowd ot liens and chickens holding
i loud and lively conversation prepara
tory to going to roost; past the cows
waiting to be milked, anil turning their

I have examined, I havo doubted, I
havo believed that the human mind had
power enough to solve tho problems pro
sented by man and by tho universe, and
that tho human will had forco enough
lo regulate human life according to tho
dictates of law and morality. After a
long life spent iu thought and action, I
became, and am still convinced that nei
ther the universe is competent to regu
late its own movements nor man to gov-
rn his own destiny by means only ot the
permanent laws by which they aro or
dered. It is my profound conviction
that God, who created this universe and
man, governs, preserves and modifies
them either by tho action of general
laws, which we call natural, or by spc
cial acts which wo call supernatural, and
which, ns well as tho general laws, aro
the emanations of His free aud perfect
wisdom and His infinite power. We
aro permitted to discern them iu their cf
lects, and forbidden to understand them
n their essence and design. I have
therefore returned to the faith of my
childhood. I am still firmly attached to
he uso of my reason and to tho freewill
which aro tho gifts from God, and my
birthright and my titlo of honor upon
earth; yet I have learned to feel myself a
child in tho hands ol Uod, and sincerely
resigned to my large share ot ignorance
and weakness. I believe in God and
worship Him without attempting to un
derstand Mini. 1 seo His presence and
His action not only in the unchangeable

Christ for thu salvation of tho human

by means of which men have tried to ex

But such theories aro too weak for our

by Him made known to man. It was
