Is it Safeto Trust ?
Wltfi high hopes of temporal prosper
ity, Mr. and Mrs. Davis, with their
little ones, joined onu of the Ilrst com
panies that emigrated from New Eng
land to Kansas,
Pioneer life nr.d Its privations, to
gether with sicklies and the death of
nil the family except tho mother and
one tlatightei little Agues dispelled
these hopes, but did nut rob tho widow
of trust In her heavenly Father.
In tho Autumn or 1800, tho year
known In Kansas as tho fnmine year,
she was reduced to great want. Her
destitute coiidltluncouldnot tin nttrlbut-
..edtonny lack of effort on herpait.
Slut paid with her own work fortiio
ploughing of her large fields in early
Spring, nnd her own hands covered tlio
seeil when Agnesdroppi'd It in the hills.
Through nil that long Lumiucr she haa
longed and waited vainly waited for
the needed tain. Much of tho seed that
she had planted was blown from thu
dry, dusty field by thestrong wind, and
Hie Httlo that came up soon scorched
ami tiled. Whiter 'was approaching,
and sho had no food. She would not
borrow of her neighbors, for they, too,
were destitute. She could not go down
Into Egypt to buy com, for shu had no
means of transput tntimi nnd no money
to put into her sneK s moutli.
I She was usually cheerlul, but at this
time thero was a cloud resting upon her
spirits; jet this cloud had tho "silver
lining" of faith.
"Wo will eat our supper now, darl
ing," sho said, ono evening, ns she
placed two heavy, wooden chairs by her
rude table.
I "Wo haven't got anything to wt,"
said little Agnes.
"Yes, wo have, dear," said her
mother. "We havo some very good
coni'bread and sumo coffee. Aud hero
Is some gravy, too, that 1 dipped off of
tho water that we boiled our last meat
in. I am afraid thero are n great many
people who havo not as gootl a supper
as this to-niglit. Wo ought to bo
thankful that wo lnvu so much as wo
have, and do not need to go to bed
. hungry."
I .But little gnes could not believo
! there was any gratitude due for so poor
a meal. "I want something more. I
I want some meat," she said.
"I think tho Lord will glvo us meat
before long. I know he has not for
gotten us. Listen to thu rain, my
daughter, and t bank Uotl that we aro
nicely sheltered. Wo will thank him
for the good rain, too. It is what wo
havo prayed for all bummer, aud though
I it did not come In '.hue to glvo us food ,
tins year, It will help to prepare tlit
ground for next year's crop. We must
thank htm for that."
"Yes, mamma, but If tho Lord has
cattle on a thousand hills I think he
could let us havo some ot them us well
ns not, and It seems to me he ought to

"Neither does God owe us anything,
and we must nut cmiplaln when liu

would thank hlin fur the dime."
"Then when God gives us health, a
comiortauio house, auu rood euougtito

shall wo complain because ho does not
glvo us more? Will you treat your
Heavenly Father worse than you would
treat a iieltiliuoiv '
As they wero partaking of their
coarse In silence, Mrs. Davis said
to herself: "The Lord will pti.vlde In
his own time; but how long must 1
Tho Milnted martyrs are not tl o only
ones who cry: "llow lojig, u i.orti,
how bng?" Emtlihas many weary,
aching hearts that echo back the, cry:
"How long?"
There was a knock. The widow
hastened to open the door, for nobody
mini bo lett standing oubidu In tl.nt
pitiless storiu. A neighbor was thero
willi a package In his hand.
"Please accept this from my wife,'
he said, "aud 1 havo good news to tell
you. The people of the North and East
ure going to scud us aid. There will
be a load of provisions here, fordis
uH'titlou, in less than a week."
Tho package was taken to the table
and opened. Llttlo Agnes dapped her
Imud-, uxclamlug: "It's n spate rib; a
nicely baked spare rib I God will pro
vide. I believe It uow." When tho
widow again sat down to tfce table she
did not say: "How long?" but with a
lighter heart and brighter face, she ex
claimed: "The Lord's promises aro
sure, and It Is safe to trust." Christian
at Work.
A few evei.lnga since, a widow,
who was known by the entire congrega
tion ot one of ourchurches, to bo great

with fervency: "Oh I tho knowest
