Tlirco Very Itad Pears."
Jjatty Martin and her sister Fan
played out of doors nil last Summer
Even rainy days did hot keep them In,
for behind their house was a barn with
great wide-open doors ami a broad Moor.
A covered walk led to It, along which
the chlldrrn loved to FCamper. In the
front yard, there was a round arbor of
cvergnens, whlth iimde a capital doll
hmic. 'J hero the-e little girls carried
their tea-set on pleasant mornings, and
theie the dolls took ten at all hours of
The children's father was n farmer,
and he look care of n great fai ni belong
ing to Mr. Preston, who lived In the
handsome Inuse on the hill. Mr. Pres.
ton's gaiden and oiehnrds stretched
t'.own the valley to the faun hotisu
where tho Mm tin family lived. He was
fond of his trees'tind crops, and watched
Hie fiuits with care, "hut most of nil he
prized h's young pear orchard. Last
Suijimer some of the trees were bearh'g
for the first time, and ho told Mr. Mar
tin 'to see '.hut nobody touched them.
One b.-igaluot pe.ir tree had three pears
on.lt, mid Mr. Preston wished to sur
prise his wife with them. She was n
Fiench lady, and was u-cd to them In
her own country; but Ihey are uot com
Well, nun afternoon Matty and Fan
ny Martin had played everything that
"What would you do?" said Matty to
' What would youlol" said Fan lo
Matty looked up the orchard path that
led towards Mr. Preston's. The smooth
gravel walk, with Its grassy border and
shading trees, looking very tempting.
They were strictly forbidden, to go there.
"I guiss we shouldn't hurt the trees,
just to look at them," said Matty, with
an lujuml air. "I don't see why wo
can't take a walk Into the orchard."
"Nobody's ever there," said Fan,
"and mother's in the sitting-room. She
HuJt seo us."
, Sji, hand In hand, they stepped care
fully up the wulk, tiending sortly at
first and keeping exactly In tho middle
so as to be sure they did no harm, ylll
was quiet, and tho way grow prettier as
they left the farm- house behind. Pacing
on, they came to a beautllul pond, with
tents of twisted wood upon the green
banks. They passed an nrbor covered
with vines, out of which peeped the
rich garpe clusters. "Isn't It splendidl"
said Matty. "And oh, what lovoly
apples," said Fan. "Aren't you glad
you came?" Still farther on were llowor
borders. Tlie air grow sweet 'with late
blooming pinks, four-o'clocks'and mlg
nonetes. Time flew past while they
were lost in the new delight of peeping,
Into the green house, and gazing at tho
bright scailet beds of geranium, and
the u.assea of gruy and citmsou plaits.
At last they met a man nt work lu
the grounds, and ho asked them what
their names were. Then the little girls
started off on a run for home. They
could see the house from the high gar
den ground where they were, but could
not find the straight gravel path again.
They dashed over tho i,rasi and across
the orchard, tunning among the trees
till they were out of breath. Then they
threw themselves down at tho very
worst spot tho could have chosen. It
was close to tho la?rgainoi,t pear tree,
and the threo pears hung down within
there reach. They were hard, and
quite unfit to eat for weeks to come, but
these childron knew no better than to
think they were delicious.
"I'm awful hungry," cried Fan.
"Nobsdy wants these poor, mls'ablo
peats," said Jatty., "There's lots of
great big trees, you saw yourself, all
loaded down villi be-yew-tlful pears
nnd peaches and eyeryllilng,"
"I know It," tald Fan. "Nobody'll
never caro for th'iso few old things."
So they each plucked and tasted, llko
their niothor Evo before them. Very
wry faces, they madoover the dry, hard
uurlpe fruit, which a Utile more time'
and sunshine would have made luscious.
They were quite vexed, so that Matly
even snatched the third pear roughly
from the tree, (lung it with theotheis
ou the ground. And having got their
breath by this time, they r-ct off again,
aptl reached homo safely. 'Their niuther
had visitors, and had not missed them,
nnd no questions wero asko.l. Their
disobedience nppeard to have been qulto
But'ono evening the next week their
father came home looking very stmnce.
Ho did uot seem to sue tho merry Chil
dren who ran to lilni as usual, but tat
down In his chair like one who fears a
fall. Kind Mrs. Martin was frightened,
and hid her" hand on his. head,' saying,
"Why, James, what Is 'the matter?"
"Matterl" said he; "I'm discharged!
and ou've gotio leave this dear homo
where wo'vo lived so long."
"W liy, what foi?"cried Mrs. Martin.
"Some of the crops have not done
well this season, you know," answered
her l.us'baid, "and one of the horses
has diedj but Mr. Preston, knuw It was
not my fault. Still, perhaps he was an
noy.'d, and this afternoon ho has found
those bergainot pears, that he was so
proud ol, nnd told me to watch, picked
oil and thrown away under tho tree.
Tim gardener says it was out children
that did itl I eald It was not, and they
had never gone up the orchird at all,
and wero forbidden ever to do It. Rut
.Mr. Pieston got nni-ry, nnd said it w.ts
our children, for tho garduer saw thein
up there last week; and he mint luvo a
man whoso family did not trouble
"Oh, papa," cried Jatty, "they wero
only three very bad pe.trt nil good for
nothlngl" " Then you did do it!" ox
claimed her poor father. "Then Mr.
Preston Is right, nnd he mut git a man
whoio children tlo not disobey him."
He laid his head on his wire's shoulder,
nnd hi? flame shook with sobs,,
Ah, what a sad punishment was this
for mi afternoon's disobedience. We
nevei know where a wrong act will eniK
Let us he sure that wo.oVey the com
mands given us,, whether by God our
Father orby carlhly parents. God only,
who fcts the end from the beginning,
can guide us. Genesseo Congregation-nlUt.
How many happy thoughts are called
up by thnso two beautiful words. Is
there can there be any placo s-a. full nf
pleasant places? Our heart turns with
unchangeable lovu and longing to tho
djar old house which sheltered us in
child-nod. Kind Irlends may beckon us
to newer scenes, and loving hearts m ty
bind us fast to warm homes, but there
Is ono place dearer than all, and that Is
"Mother's House." Hero wo have
watched life come and go. Here per
chance we have watched with njhlng
heart the dear ono torn from the home
liest out Inlo tho world wjilcli has proved
n ennrc and temptation to many wander
ing feet. And hero we gather strength
to take up our lives again, and go on
patiently unto the end. Rut though the
world calls us, nnd we may find Irlends
good nnd true, we turn to the dear old
home when troubles come, for help and
comfort. Ah -.Vother's Houio. It may
bo old and rickety to the eyes, of the
stranger. Rut still It Is ".Vother's
House." It is the dear old spot from
which wo looked out upon lfe" with
heart full of hope, building' wonderful
ensiles In clnudlaud which faded away
long ngo; i,ut thanks to the good Father
"Mother's House'' Is left us Mill, nnd
weary with tho busy "turmoil of life j
weary of our.-clve.s wo turn our steps
toward the dear house ot rest, and at its
threshold lay our burdens down.i God
grant that for us n'l thero may long
remain a "Mother's House."

A fo.v hints and recipes for the sick
room nny now nnd then be in place.
Everything arcund the sick should be
quiet and, cl-anly. The nurso should
have a steady baud, clear head and ten
der heart; not talkative or nervous.
Avoid nrguments.wlth.tho sick; do not
sit or lean on the bed. Friends calling
on the sick shoull make their stay short.
Tho practice of visiting the sick on tho
Sabbath is a very poor one that day
often thus becomes the mosttrylng and
fatiguing of all to them. As a general
rule do uot go Into the sick room unless
you go to help. Do not deceive, tho
sickjllecelt breeds suspicion, and they
will worry lest you keep something
for them. Don't pursuado, tho, dying
that they will recover, It Is treason
against the Interests of the.soul. JVever
