the envelope with renewed interest.
"Mrs. Luther Wilkins," he said,
Mrs. Luther Wilkins. And I an old
bachelor who never so much as hardly
thought of getting married! Mrs.
Luther Wilkins! Why, where is she?
And who is she?"
"Well, I guess I'll see what's in it."
He inserted the point of his knife
under the corner of the envelope flat;
then he hesitated.
"What business have I opening her
letters?" he asked himself. "I never
did open other folk's letters, and I
guess I won't begin now!"
He rose to his feet, and, carrying it
to the mantel piece, leaned it up against
He settled himself to his papers, but
thoughts of Mrs. Luther Wilkins kept
intruding on what he was .reading
about patent i.est-boxes, aud nndtr-

Thereafter, during all his waking
hours, Mrs. Luther Wilkins was often
in his thoughts. He wondered what
she was like, and be thought of the
kind of a woman he would wish her to
be, and enjoyed himself very much in
imagining how U would seem to have

came in from the fields, and bow nice

.The letter by the clock, too, began to
trouble him. He had a devouring curi
osity to see what was in il; and besides
it did not seem right to keep it so long
before delivering it.
One eveniDg in June, Luther put on
his best clothes and walked three miles
to see an old schoolmate who had an
unmarried cousin living with him. It
seemed to him that Eliza Elliot fitted
in exactly with his idea of Mrs. Luther
He came home quite early, very
much disappointed. Eliza wouldn't

He worked doggedly for a month,
trying hard not to think of the disquiet

tbe end of July it was observed that
Luther was becoming very neighborly.
He spent evenings at different neigh
bors' houses, he accepted Invitations to
tea, and went to church regularly and
to all the Sundty-echool picnics.
And yet he ciuld not find a suitable
owner for the letter.

It wes one cold, raw day in early No

making clumsy attempts at mending a
pair of very ragged socks. Happening
to glance across the street he saw a
woman out ia Hammond's yard. She
was very busy raking up the fallen au

mented. "Bill Hammond's sister. We
don't see much of her lately. Sue don't
evtn go to church; there's so many of
Bill's children to look After, and Bill's
wife is bo taken up with her clubs and
things. It's hard on Letitia, but she
never finds a word of fault."
The sock be was mending fell to tbe
floor, and the wooden egg jnside it
struck with such a loud bang that the
cat started from bis sleep.

But Luther did not notice. He was

took the iron rake away from Letitia,

"That's too hard wor for a little
thing like you," hi said.
Letitia's blue eyes were full of won

"You'd better go Into tbe house, too,"
said Luther. "It's cold out here."
No one had been thoughtful of her
before for a long time, f.nd Letitia
couldn't understand it.
When Luther returned tbe rake she
asked him to let her do something for

make her fsel better, and it gave me a
chance to see her, too."
He found that it was an easy matter
to invent excuses for seeing her, and
finally, some time in the winter, he
asked her with fear and trembling, if
she would be Mrs. Luther Wilkins.
At first she thought it would not be
right to abandon her brother's chil
dren, btu her scruples melted away be
fore the warmth of his eloquence. Then
she confessed that she was tired.
"It is so long that 1 have had to take
care of other folks, and it will seem
like heaven to have some one to take
care of me," she said.
Bo it happened that In a little lees
than a year the letter to Mrs. L uther
Wilkin was given to its rightful own

no control have prevented you from
getting it before," Luther said.
"Why, it's nothing but an advertise
ment of some new preparation of cere
als," she said, when she opened it.
Luther looked blank.
"I see how it is," she said, after a mo
ment's thought "They sent to the
grocer for lists of their customers, and
then sent these circulars to their wives."
"Let us keep it," said Lother, softly.

The Girl 0a the Farm.
Tbe agricultural papers teem with
articles on "How to Keep Boys on the
Farm," but seldom a word about the
girls. Now, we- could not think of
doing without the boys. Bless the
dear, noisy boys I Their cheery, airy
whistle is the best antidote for the
blues one can take. Tbe girls, precious
jewels, are just as essential to farm life
as tbe boys, and farm life Is just as
necessary to their full and evenly bal
anced development, minds and bodies,
as they to farm life, and where they
are not happy and contented in their
farm home, something is radically
wrong somewhere. If the father is
continually growling abot-i the mud or
dust, the beat or cold, the tariff, low
prices, poor crops, the mother about
farm drugery, deprivations, lack of
congenial society, need we wonder
that children growing np in such an
atmosphere will long for "wider fields,
to know and be known, to meet people
of note, to listen to the grand flow of
ebajuence from the pulpit or rostrum,"
are anxious to flee from evils they
know to those they kuow not? My
heart aches for children of such homes.
The very joys of life are daslnd aside,
and they peer into the dim future with
distorted vision and imagine they see
honor, success and happiness, which,
when they meet is only the black de
spair of disappointment
Parents, pause and consider the ob
ligations you are under to your chil
dren. This debt can not be paid with
broad acres or many dollar. A con
tented spirit, a ell-balanced mind, a
strong constitution, helpful hands,
temperate habits, honor, love and un
selfishness are the birthrights of every
child. Just so far as they fall short of
this standard you have failed to start
them aright in this world. When you
fail to teach by precept and practice,
these holy principles, you rob your
children of that priceless pearl.
I would be the last person to dis
courage any laudable ambition, but it
is with genuine sorrow I hear a girl
lament the "narrowness of farm life"
and express a desire for "city or town
advantages," and a determination to
seek employment there. To such I
say, Don't my dear. Where one, who
has left the farm, succeeded, scores
have failed. Many without sufficient
fortitude to return to the farm home
and begin where tbey left off have
drifted to ruin. I have heard it be
fore. - It is true, nevertheless, as many
a wrecked life, a premature grave, will
tell you, if you listen.
If your home is a happy, cheerful
one, you are needed there to keep it
thus. If it is a cheerless, discontented
abode, your duty is to make a model
home of it Farm life is not narrow,
neither need our lives be narrow on
the farm. In no other place, in all
this beautiful world, does nature deal
out her glories with so lavish a hand.
In no other place are the evils of life
so completely excluded. These long
winter eveuings you can meet the
noted writer, tbe eloquent preacher,
the scientific lecturer, between the lids
of book or magazine, and meet them
at their best. There they are shorn of
tbe petty frivolities that mar the beau
ties of so many lives. Whet glorious
hours for study, for acquainting one's
self with gems of though'., for mental
communion with the true, the noble,
spirits of the day ! Drive away this
discontent with plans for brightening
and beautifying your home, then put
your plans into action. No duty, how
over distasteful, but may be made a
pleasure if you will. Take an interest
in everything around you. Look for
beauty and you will see it Work for
happiuess and you will get it Mrs.

The making of an apology whea cue
hs been in the wrong is not an agree

to render the job as light as possible

said the girl, "but you must g away."
