One dark, cold night, Paul was re

as loud as she whenever the- - joke I

concerned, evaded the questions of
the curious, and learned to - .love
nothing in this world better than the
little 'talc : Camilla,.
There were many, many days when
'rheumatism drew Paul by the fire in
the old back attic, and drew the very
last penny out of the- dilapidated
purse; but brave little Camilla never
forgetting how near death she had
been on 'that bitter night of their

True society begins in the home.
When two young People love each
Other, andinarry, they restore the pic
ture of the apostolic church. Thoy
are of one heart and one soul. Neith.
er do they - say that anything they
possess is their but ther•have
all things in common. Their mutual
trust in each - other,. draws out all
that is hest in both. Love is the an-
who rolls avray the stone from
the grave in which we bury our bet
ter nature. and it eoines forth. Love
nutti.2s all things new; makes all
cares light, all pAin easy it is the
one enchantment of human life which
realizes Fortuhio's purse and Alad
din's palace - , and turns the "Arabian
Night's into mere prose iu compari
son._ • ,-
Think how this old story of love
is repeated forever in all the novels
and rmaa p ees and poems, and - how
we never tire. of reading about it;
and how; if' there is to be a wedding
in a church all mankind go, just to
have one look at two persons,who are'
supposedott- least, to be in love, and
so supremely happy. But ,this also,
is _not perfect socie tly. It is teto nar
row, too .eXCIUSiVe. It shows the
flower of devotion. trust, seltsurren
r. that there is in the human heart;
and, it is also a prophecy of something
larger that is, to come. But ,R is at
least a home, and before real society
;can come, true home must - come. As
in a sheltered nook in the midst
the great sea of ice which rolls down
froin the summit of Mont •Bline , is
found a little green spot full of ten
der flowers, so in the shelter of the,
home in the warm atmosphere of
bous,ehold lore, spring up the pure .
affections of parent and child; fath
er, mother,-son, daughter; -of broth
ers and sisters. Whatever makes
this insecure, and divorce frequent,
makes, of marriage
,no- a . Union for
life, hui, an experireent which may be
tried xis often as we choose, and :than
' doted when we like. And, this cuts
. 1 up by the roots all the dear affections
of home; leaves children orphaned,
destroys fatherly and motherly love,
sad is it virtual dissolutiori.of society.
I. know ther great difficulties of this
qucf• - tion, and -how much wisdom is
required to solve them. But what
