BT MAItT MONTREAL. 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 l.ad 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 doit." "Don't yon think, darling, that Afr. Call ougl'.t to glvo you some money?" "No, mamma, lio does not owe mo nuy." "Neither does God owe us anything, and we must nut cmiplaln when liu does not glvo us all we would like to havo. It Mr. Call should uivo you a dime; w mid you thank him or would you fret because he did not glvo you a ouaiter?" "I would not bo so ungrateful, would thank hlin fur the dime." "Then when God gives us health, a comiortauio house, auu rood euougtito keep us Iroin suffering with hunger. 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 n.e.il In silence, Mrs. Davis said to herself: "The Lord will pti.vlde In his own time; but how long must 1 wait?" 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."

A few evei.lnga since, a widow, who was known by the entire congrega tion ot one of ourchurches, to bo great ly In want of a husband, was praying with fervency: "Oh I tho knowest what is the desire of my heart?"
