Janet would not want to go to bed

" You will not go to sleep -yet,
Tom," she said. " It's a whole hour

what that meant. She repeated
" Mother Goose," and the " House

she began with " Noah's Ark, and
went straight through to 1 .. 6 Malachi,"

and' the persistent little voice still
pounced upon every omission and de

" Not for six or fourteen hours; and

holler and holler, and .that makes

Faith resigned herself to her fate,
and began to improvise a fairy. tale:

hand that he was pointing out to his

in-the valley below—the wide Igsweep
of the hills, the uplifting of theikrtoun
tain petiks,.the glories of earth and
air and sky. She knew just kow his
eye dilated, how his form seemed to
expand, - how his:voice grew deeper
and ; tenderer. There was the stung
of it. •
But how could he help it ?, :How
could Faith help it that this beauti
ful, cultured, graceful woman had
dropped down,--out of the clouds, as
it were, and for three or four weeks
had sat beside him at the board,
walked with him in - the dim / old
woods, .rcal with him out of the self

hills and rough the valleys, and

on her white horse, outlined against
the sky; with her dark blue drapery
falling in graceful folds. She was
not so far off but that it was assy to
-see how" her wary hair; so wondrous
fair, was with the sunset glowing;"
and how white were the little nnglov-,
ed hands that were fastening back
.some strays tresses that had beconie
loosened by the rapid motion.
Poor Faith! " There is such a
difference in people," she 'sighed,, as
the riders passed out of sight. Now
my dress will never falf like that,
every fola in the right place. If my
hair comes down it will riot wave and ,
twist and coil itself until its disorder
is prettier and more picturesque: than

The smrwent down and the gray
twilight crept upon the earth. Ja
net came sleepily up stairs, holding
dolly clasped to- her heart, bottom
upward, and scattering, sawdust all

in two minutes she was in the land

She had forgotten - Kenneth Mar

Man's voice is so small, so weak,

snow againstpthat background of eb

a gleam of golden hair streaming out

fixed in terror and despair, and two
hands clutching the silvery mane.
Faith took it all in 4 a glance:
She thought as the dro'wning think.
A lifetime was condensed -into" one
moment's Space.
Straight dorm the hill came the
frightened horse. At gm bottom: of
it if 'ho kept the road, there was a
short turn, sharp and sudden as a
right angle. If he did not keep
&ere was a deep ravine straight ahead
and stone at the bottom. Faith Hai

The girl's had not falleti together..
Judith breaking from Faith's clasp

of stump nearest the road. Faith
clinging to the little tree had swayed
around and felled behind it. As she
sat the nowitry,hig to collect her sen

the rumbling of wheels.
Here she is, Mr. Grey. Kenneth
Marston's voice. Oh, my God !
Faith saw hini drop upon his knees

death as the dim irayq of the lanterti

him put the hair tack froM the fore

him stoop over, 'a .kistV.tho' pale

in his arms and bore it to Mr. Gray's

low words, and there was something
in his voicelhal she had never heard
before. ' _ - . -

Among the chief men that opposed
the•building up the wails of the city,
was Sanballat, who when he heard of
the building of the wall, was wroth
and took great indignation and-mock
,ed. the Jews, and spake before his
brethren and the army of
~ S amaric,
and said, What do these feeble Jews?
will they' fortify themselves?. will
they make an end in a day?

'the rubbish what are bur Ned?
Tobiah, tLe Ammonite,Was anoth
cr, and he said; " EVen that which
they build„ if a fox go ;up, he shall
even break down their stone - wall."
".NOw' it came to - pass, when .San

Arabian, and the rest of our enemies;
heard that I had builded the . wall,
and that :there was no breach' left

not scrupled in their endeavors to
advicace their own interests and de--
sires, to resort to means not approved
of to secure their object. . • 4: ,
• In the circumstance under consid
eration Nehemiah was, engaged in
not only a great work, but a good'
work:---a work that had mot only the
approval of men, but of God—a,work
no less than that of - rebuilding the
city of Jerusalem. It is to be' seen
that even hi this great work lie had
enemies to contend iwitb, and com
plaints had been made , that he was
ambitious to build up the viii- in or
al' to entrench himself in it, and "to
throw off the Persian rule -over the
Jews, and become independent and
he made king.
. In this, nothing brit the decree of
the king was suflicieut to restrain
those individuals in their opposition,
and Nehemiah sent unto them, say
" There are no such things,
as thou sayest, but thou fegnesd ,

Not long since I l at a schoolroom
window, looking out upon the hill
side at about tWo • hundred children
that were climbing and 'sliding in ati

are,. 'Continually ascending, : or . des

While meditating, upon the scene,
I fell into a 'deep reverie, in, which
the rwlicile world passed in.rciieW be

.men, women -and 'children, each
whom had his professed: character
stamped on his forehead 'or' ;printed.
on a large placaid upon. the
- breast ; .wile his' roil character. was
printed ;on a large card hanging, u
on his back.

her glory, and Satan iu, all the eraftY.,

led her followers towards the sum
mit, :while* Satin tripped. the weak
,and - them tEr.'
slide towards the f00t..-.o? the. plane.
Milli was ever on the alert to save
the fallen and save others fion:il
ing, while:Satan prepared' pits and
deadfalls, in ;which to 'ensnare the de-
Sired victira'S. 'As a result of the la
bor's of these great - powers, the for

changed froth Christian . " to Good

that. t lie roost of the 'people:were de-.

ittemperance. He has learned all

lortls and actions, even, are so adroit.
framed as to bewilder strOtig minds.
His great forte is to weaken and pql - -

with him. -He pronounces the liquid
demon, alcohol, a sure remedy fat
many of the diseases to which human.,
flesh is heir. In this manner he leads
them - to drunkenness and de.rada-,
tion. How he laughs to himself and
says,'" Of ,suell is the kingdom uf

patients, causing them to roll under
their tongues as a sweet morselL the

While looking nixm this scene and
wondering how - so many could 'he 50..,

the mitrast represented 'by the
climbing and sliding immuiptions as,
they were changing and rechanging.
Suddenly a narrow golden gate open
