OUT OF THE DROSS.
BY EMMA M J01WST0N.
Wandering about the suburbs of '-he
city, I found mvself upon omfi open
common, where heap of dust, allies
nnd rubbish were piled up. At one of
these heans T thought T aw snmn llv-Inn-
object moving about, and drawing
nearer, I found nn old woman, upwards
of seventy, lean, wrlnlilfd and crlnled,
digging Into the dirt bv means of a
plec of stick; hut' in her eawrnpse.
often discarded tho stick, and using her
claw-like fingers. Her bent nnd bar
tered old figure was trmulnns with
excitement, nnd she kept, np a mumbled
cnnverealinn with herself.
Drawlii near. I spr.kn to her. nnd
she Matted, r.il'ing herself, and slmk
Iti2 from her eyes some gray locks
which bad fallen over them.
"You are busy," I said; "what Is It
"I'm a-lonkln for a Jewel honey."
"A Jewel 1" I echned, thinking the
rid woman wandering In her mind, he
ennop of tho weakness of old age. ''A
Jewel'ln a heap of dirt I"
"Yin, bless yon, they do find 'em
here sometimes. Lenstwnvs, Big Jim
found a rare diamond onet."
" A nd how long hnve you been search
ing?" I nked.
"Oh, not long; only these, three
months goln' on four. I onmn ev ry
day and hunt a spell, and (llen'Igo
home and rest mv old bones."
"Avd von really think yon wll' find
a lewef?" I said to her; pltv. amuse
ment and Incredulity all lilendlng In my
"For sure T will, honey; I'm Just
bound to hunt till Blt it,"
I looked at the eager, tremulous old
creatine, spending ,her little all of
strenglli, In the vnln, hope; of .finding
noma precious' thing. Should I make
any effort to reach, her higher nature?
Could t be pnssl'.ile that she would un
derstand an appeal to per soul ?
Whln J hesitated, I was condemned;
nnd there came .to ,my listening, throb
bing heart, borne on the stillness of tho
June day, these words; "Out' of the
'lllear ma I" I said to tho woman;
"I want to tU' you about a Jewel that
Is 'of more value than any' that has over
yet'been found. Ono such as your old
eyes have never seen, nor your old
heart ever dreamed of."
"Yes, yes, honey, I hear you. Tell
me about It."
Then I spoko that tallsmanie name
Jesus! And unfolded slowly nnd care
fully the whole btessed plan of salva
tion, which Included'even such as she.
"Where Is he?" she asked, dreamily.
"I think' I kind o' befrd o' hlra onct
"Mo Is here," I replied.
She started and looked about on
Now was the time to fix tho Impres

and 6trenctli. which urongntnn imme
diate answer; and then, with a' delicate
choice of words, so that all might bo
simple to that simple comprehension, I
explained how Christ might uo near us,
even In our hearts by fallh, while we
could not see him n the flesh. I told
her how tlie ulngie. sincere cry of a
slmior would bring him to the sinner's
side, quick to forgive and quick to com
"Honey. It's all very nice to talk this
era way when you've got good clothes
and'R, plenty to cat. Butilook at me
onlv rags to cover me, and my old
bones-all twisted with rheumatlr."
"Were vou always so-poor?"
"No; time was when 1 was n likely

But if I could find a Jewel in tills oro

She looked nt me suspiciously for
moment. "Now how did you know
that Jim dldn' do well? Ho didnit do
well. Hint's a Iftct. He sold that dia
mond and cot lots o mosey;-but ho
drunk hard aud quarreled, and at last
he was worse nft than ever; hadn't a

When I entered tho cellar tho first
words which greeted nn were these :
"I've give It np. I M'nn'l hunt for It
no more, I don't keer much, anyhow.
ItWouldn't linve done me much good.
Big Jim's didn't do him no good."
"Liz," I said, gently, "there wasan
other search 1 told you of. Have you
thought about that 7 Havo you been
looking for Jesus?"
To my surprise she nodded her head.
"O, tell me," Liz," I cried, "have
you found tho Savloui ?"
