JTne third week of Mrs. Trevanion'.
TWtt was drawing to a close. It was a
dull, gray afternoon. June was cower
ing over a fire; 6he hnd a fit of shivering,
and felt more than usually unwell. For
the la-st few days a listless feeling had
crept over her; she had no appetite, and
felt 111 and depressed. She had refused
to have a doctor, but tinlay Mrs. Tre
vanion had insisted, and a servant had
been dispatched to summon him.
"I wonder," said Mrs. Trevanlon, "how
alias is getting on? I don't think his
last letter was quite so cheery as usual.
He had looked forward so much to Cairo,
but it seems they ure all disappointed
and disgusted with it, and would rather
be in the desert."
"Oh," exclaimed June, suddenly, with
her eyes fixed on the window, "there is
Agnes. I am getting positively to hate
the sight of her."
"Ieave her to me," observed Mrs. Tre
Tanion. "I will talk to her."
A minute later. Muss Kllesmere was
announced. She came in with a longer
face than usual, and in her hand she held
an orange envelope.
As June saw It, a deadly chill took
possession of her; she shivered violently;
Ler teeth chattered in her head.
"1 haTe some dreadful news," said Ag
nes, fixing her cruel eyes on June's face.
"This telegram eauie for mamma from
Aunt Violet. She was out, and papa
opened it. Mr. Broke died of fever last
night in Cairo."
Mrs. Trevanlon uttered a cry, then,
.tailing up, ran to June.
She had turned white as death, and
was falling back senseless in her choir.
Lady Nevii was carried upstairs to bed.
and it was more than a month before she
was able to be moved from it again. The
doctor pronounced that she was sickening
for a fever typhoid, he feared. From the
moment when Agnes told the cruel news,
he never perfectly recovered conscious
ness, but Was either insensible or deliri
ous. The day after Jnne waa taken ill little
Tom began to sicken, and in five days he
died. Sir Thomas was like one stunned;
but bis Intense anxiety about his wife
made the loss of the child perhaps less
agonizing. If only June were spared to
him, he felt he could bear that other
grief, awful though It was; he realized
once'again how he loved hla wife, and
what her death would mean to him. His
remorse was grievous to witness. He
made no attempt to conceal it from Mrs.
Trevanlon. Indeed, it was the only thing
he could talk of. He clung to her. Im
ploring her not to leave him. He seemed
to hang on her presence as the only chance
of saving hla darling.
To Mrs. Trevauion'g relief, the name of
Dallas never crossed June's lips. During
those dreadful days of her poor little
child's illness, death and burial, June was
happily unconscious. She knew nothing
of Tom's agonized face, a be came in
with hiiRhed steps and haggard eyes from
that other chamler where half his hopes
lay dead from the little waxen figure
that it would have broken June's heart to

"Where Is Tom?" she asked, presently.
"Would yon like to see him?"
Jnne made a gesture of assent, and Mrs.
Trevanlon went to fetch him,

Ton axrayed himself in an old shooting
sraK, and went on tiptoe to his wife's
room. What an eager light there was in
his honest face as he approached the bed
and once more saw recognition in the eyes
of hla beloved! She smiled faintly and
field out her hand to him, and he took It In
his as tenderly as though It might melt
away at a touch.
"Where Is little Tom?" asked June,
CalnHy. "I want to see all the family."
Mrs. Trevanlon saw the convulsive
working of Tom's face, and hastened to
"He is with his grandmother, darling."
she said, thinking sadly of June's dead
mother; but June understood, as It wa
meant she should, that he was with Mrs.
"Fancy Tom letting him out of hi.

tired, and said no more.
That night, as Mrs. Trevanion was sit
ting by her liedside, thinking she was doz
ing. June suddenly owned her eyes, and,
with a fixed look, said:
"Is It trueT
"Is what true, dearest?"
"Dallas!" uttered June, in a low voice.
Mrs. Trevanlon hid her face m het
hands, and the tears fell thick and fast
til rough her fiugere
"How hardl" said June, and then closed
her eyes and relapsed Into silence.
The doctors now gave every hope of her
recovery. When she was well enough to
be moved, she waa to be taken to the sea
side, and, as Mrs. Trevanlon could no
longer be spared from home, Mrs. Bryan
was to be installed as head nurse.
"Oh," said Tom, in a melancholy rolce,
as they sat together after dinner on the
lost evening, "what shall I do without
you? I don't believe my poor little girl
would erer have pulled through but for
"When she Is stronger, yon must tell
her," answered Mrs. Trevanion, with
tears in her eye. "And when yon talk
abont yonr dreadful I03S, it will be heart
breaking at first, but it will draw you
closer together afterward. And now,"
looking very kindly at his grieved face,
"do you feel sufllciently friendly to allow
me to take a liberty?"
At this Tom jumped tip, and. coming
round to her, seized her hand and held it
"What in the world might yon not say
or do?" And he took the chair beside
"Yon know," said Mrs. Trevanlon, af
ter a slight pause, "when our poor darling
was so ill and we did not know which way
it might turn, I would not allow you to
reproach yourself in any way on her ac
count; but, now that she la going to get
quite well and strong again, you must
be all In all to each other, just as you
were when first you married."
Mrs. Trevanion paused a moment: then,
looking at him Tery kindly and speaking
in a low but resolute voice, she proceeded:
"No third person ought ever to be nl
lowed to come between a husband and
wife. The cause of most of the mistinder
stnhding letween you ami dear June has
lieen the interference of Miss Kllesmere."
"Yes, yes," said Tom, heartily. "I am
sure you are right. Rut I think, with poor
Agnes, it was what you would call want
of tact more than anything else. How
ever," seeing the expression of dissent on
his friend's face, "it shall never happen
ai.'aiu. No one nothing shall ever conn
between my wife and me. I'lease God
she gets well, she shall have it all her
Mrs. Trevanion smiled. "I think you
will find," she said, "that June is less like
ly to be spoiled by too much kindness than
by the other method. And I am quite
sure that n man as good and kind as you
are ought to make any reasonable woman
happy, and will do so when left to your
self." "Oh," cried Tom, depreeatingly, "don't
say anything about nie! I'm a very poor
sort of chap, I'm afraid!"
"No, you are not," said Mrs. Trevan
ion, smiling and putting out her hand to
him. "Rut you arc none the worse for
being modest, and when I come to stay
with you again I know 1 shall find you the
happb-st couple in the world."
"And we will be, thnnks to you!" cried
Tom. fervently, still grasping her hand.
"It will be thanks to the natural good
qualities of both of yon, and to there be
ing no one to interfere," answered Mrs.
It was the first week in January. Sit
Thomas and I-ndy Nevil were staying at
their place in the North. Kx tensive al
terations were being made at the Hall,
and, indeed, both its master and mistress
shrank from the idea of returning to the
v'.ace where such terrible calamity had
berallen them. June hnd almost recover
ed her health, though not her spirits Her
child's death had been a crushing blow;
it seemed to her a sort of divine retribu
tion for having thought too little of him
in his 'lifetime.
Six months ago anyone might son J
have predicted that the Iw.y's death would
have fallen with ten times more severity
on Tom than on June; but such was not
the ca-e. Tom was almost cheerful, while
his wife was a prey to the deepest grief.
Now Tom only had one object In life
to devote himself to June, to heap love,
affection, caresses upon her, to prove to
her lieyond all doiu.i now u"'"'i

Mr. and Mrs. Carslake were their only
guests, and thoroughly congenial ones.
Madge's brightness and gayety, tempered
by her sympathy for her cousin's distress,
made her presence most welcome to June,
and Mr. Carslake, who possessed a very
kind heart and considerable tact, was ex
cellent company for Tom. He was, more
ever, an excellent sportsman, and, with
hla host, enjoyed the capital sport which
the place afforded. Madge was exceed
ingly happy. Being neither quite so sen
timentally Inclined nor so exacting as her
cousin by disposition, she was in no dan
ger of suffering disappointment or
lusionment, and was perfectly satisfied
with the very real if undemonstrative-in-public
affection of her lord.
"I am sure," she said, laughing, to June,
"any one might think that you and Tom
were bride and bridegroom rather than
Robert and I. As for Tom, I K-lieve he
must have been taking lessons in the art
of love making, he does it so well."
Tom and Madge had made up their dif

One morning as the four were sitting at
breakfast, the letters, unusually late, were
brought in. Presently the rest of the
company were startled by a whoop In the
old style from Madge, as she started up
and executed oue of the pas seals dear to
the days of h-r youth, but which she had
relinquished since she had arrived at the
dignity of the marriage state.
"Madge!" remonstrated her husband,
pretending to look shocked, but inward
"This letter," cried Madge, waving it in
the air, "contains the most delightful
news in the world news that will till each
of your separate and nil your collective
hearts w 1th joy when you hear it. I will
not take up your time by asking you to
try and guess, lecause you never would.

" 'It seems that Agnes produced a great
impression upon him when he saw her a
year ago at the Murstons". He thought
lier so very sweet, nnd was so struck by
her earnest interest in mission work. So
he begged Mrs. Marston to liivitethem to
meet again, and promised to her the day
In-fore yesterday. She is to accompany
him to Africa In the spring. It will be a
great trial to pnrt from her, .socially ns
we have already lost one of our dear chil

must not consider ourselves.
"Fancy Aggie Bishopcss of the Canni
bal Islands!" cried Madge; "perhaps they
will cat her some day. I wonder if a
sweet woman tastes better than an ordi
nary one? I remember quite well meeting
the bishop at the Marstons' and thinking
him oue of the most odious and domineer

will have full scope."

mixture of drollery and malice that even
Tom burst out laughing.

well, perhaps, that she Is going away,
but," with emphasis, "whether she goes or
stays, no one shall ever come between my
wife and me again."

So I went away happy after all, for
sweet Lucy's promise was the tnl's
man that strengthened me and hade
me hope In the terrible days that fol
lowed. Several gushing, girlish letters came
from her In answer to my passionate
avowals of undying love and fealty.

A Queenly Milkmaid.
The Queen of the Belgians and Prin
cess Clementine, while driving in a
pony-cart one day last summer, had a
charming rural adventure, which the
London Tost describes:
They stopped at a farmhouse to buy
a glass of milk. Nobody but an old.
pnralyeed woman was in the house,
and she replied that no milk was left
in the Jugs, and that she was unnble
to go to milk a cow.
"Never mind," said the queen; "If
you will allow me, I will go to the pas
ture. Just tell me where the Jugs are."

Text: "Do thyself no harm." Act3
Here Is n would-be sulcido arrested in
his deadly attempt. He was a sheriff, and,
aeeord'nsr to the Roman law, a baililT him
self miT-t sutTor the punishment due on es
eaped prisoner; and if ttio prisoner break
ing jail was sentenced to bo endungnonod
for three or lour years, then tho sheriil
must bo ennuujo;ird for three or four
years, and If tlm prisoner breaking jail was
to have suffered capital punishment, then
the sheriff must suffer capital punishment.
The sheriff had received especial charge to
keep a sharp lookout for l'aul and Silas.
The government had not much confidence
In bolts and bars to keep safe these two
clergymen, about whom thero seemed to
be some'tiliig strange and supernatural.
Suro enoyj'h, by miraculous power, they
are free, and t je sheriff, waking out of a
sound slc'p, ud supposing these mluisters
have run away, and knowing that they
were to die for preaching Christ, and real
izing that ho must therefore die, rathei
than go under the executioner's axe on the
morrow and suffer public disgrace, resolves
to precipitate hisown decease. Jhit before
the sharp, keen, glittering dagger of the
sheriff could strike his heart, ono of the un
loosened prisoners arrests tho biadu by the
command. "Do thyself no harm "
In olden times, and where Christianity
had not interfered Itli it, suicide w;is
considered honorable and a sign of cour
age. Demosthenes poisoned himself when
told that Alexander's ambassador had de
manded tho surrender of tho Athenian
orator. Isocrates killed himself rather
than surrender to Philip of Macndon.
t'ato, rather than submit to Julius Cesar,
took his own life, and three times after his
wounds had been dressed, tore thorn opeu
nnd perished. Mithridntes killed himself,
rather than submit to Fompey, tho con
queror. Hannibal destroyed his life by
poison from his ring, considering life un
bearable. Lycurgus a suicide, Itrutus a
sulcido. After tho disaster of Moscow,
Napoleon always carried with him a prep
aration of poison, and ono night his
servant heard tho ex-emperor arise, put
something in a glass and drink it, and
soon nfter tho groans aroused nil tho at
tendants, and it was only through utmost
medical skill that ho was resuscitated.
Times have changed, y.t tho American
conscience needs to bo toned up on the
subject of suicide. Have you seen a paper
In the Inst month that did not nnuounce the
passage out of lifo by one's own behest?
Defaulters, alarmed at th idea of exposure,
quit lifo precipitately. Men losing large
fortunes go out of tho world because tiiey
cannot enduro earthly existence. Frus
trated affection, domestio infelicity, dys
peptic Impatience, anger, remorse, envy.
jealousy, destitution, misanthropy, arc
considered suilieient causes for abscon 1
ing from this lifo by Paris green, by lauda
num, by belladonna, by Othello's dagger,
by halter, by leap from the altutmont of a
bridge, by llroarms. More cases of felo
do se In tlio Inst two years than in any two
years of tho world's existence, and more
in tho last month than In any twelve
months. Tho evil is more nnd more spread
ing. A pnlpit not long ago expressed some
doubt ns to whether thero was really any
thing wrong about quitting this lifo when
It became disagreeable, and thero arc
found in respectable circles people apolo
getic for tho crimo which l'aul in tho text
arn-sted. I shall show you before I get
through that sulcido is the worst of all
crimes, and I shal' lift a warning unmis
takable. Hut in tho early part of this ser
mon I wish to admit that some of the best
Christians that have ever lived have com
mitted self-destruction, but always In de
mentia, and not responsible. I have no
more doubt about their eternal felicity
than I hnvo of tho Christian who dies in
his bed in tho delirium of typhoid fever.
Whilo tin shock of the catastrophe is very
great. I charge ail thoso who have ha 1
Christian friends under cerebral aberration

no doubt nhoat their happiness, Tim dear
Lord took thorn right out of their daed
and frenzied state into perrect safety. How
Christ feols towards tho insane you may
know from tho way Ho treated the de
moniac, of fla lara and the child lunatic,
and the potency with which Ho hushed

climbing up ns ho did from tho quarry and
the wall of tho stone mason, drew forth
the astonished admiration of Kneklan I and
Murchison, the scientists, and Dr. Chal

spellbound while ho told them tho story o!
what he had seen of Ood in "The Old lied
Sandstone." That man did more than any
other being that ever lived to show that
tho Ood of tho hills is tho God of tlio Bible,
and he stuck his tuning-fork on tho rocks
of Cromarty until ho brought geology and
theology accordant In divine worship. His
two books, entitled "Footprints of tho
Creator" and "Tho Testimony of tho
Bocks," proclaimed tho banns of an ever
lasting marriage between genuine sclenco
and revelation. On this latter hook ho
toiled day and night. through loveof nature
and love of God, until ho could not sleep
and his brain gnve way, and he was found
dead with a revolver by his side, tho cruel
Instrument having had two bullets ono

practically says: "If you don't like this

in annihilation, where thero nro no notes

to torment, or you will land where thero
will bo everything glorious and nothing to
