Mt OLD GRANDMOTEM
I find'the , inarks:of MY shortest steps beside
those of my beloved motber;which were mess
ured by my own, says' , Alexander Dumas, and
so conju'res up one, of the sweetest images in
the world.. He ivas,revisitiriethe home of his
infancy; he was .retracing the little
.path's,
around>it in which he had once walked; • and
strange flowers could not etface; and rank grass
.coOld nat . conceal, and cruel ploughs could not
obliterate, his ctehortest, footseps," and his
rriother's beside theni, measured by his Cisvp'.
And who iTeeds to be told.ivhose footsteps

pattihng of. childhoodls little feet? It .vraii no
mother

Stern maii - ;•rho could have borne him soli.Doi.
been_buidenA,' folded' him in his arm, and not
been wearied; 'everything, indeed`could
'have done • for Itim,• but just whet he . .needed
mostcbuld not aympathise • with him—he
could not be a child itga;'!" cAh, a . k

that—for;_iadeed itA au, arts to bac

a chile; and he,Who had learned to .glide back
'into that rosy time when he'did not know that'
therns were under roses; or that clouds Would
ever rettirkafter the thought a.
tear, could stain - a:eheek no more than a droP
of rain a flower; when he fancied.thatlife had
no diegaise, and hope no blight , at: all—has

.And it is perhaps, for thiareasonthatit is so
Much easier for a mother'to: enter the kingdom
of Heaven than it
,ie for the rest of the wotld.
She fancies she la

after all the children'araleading.her, and they
keep her, indeed- where the river iaharrowest
and . the air is clearestE and the beckoning of the
radiant hand is so plainly semi hoot the , other
side that it is no vvonder she so often lets go
her clasp upon the little finger she is bolding
and goes over to the' neighbors, and the chil
Oren follow like lambs. to . the• fold, for . we
think;it 'ought someivhere .to:rbe 'written:—
"Where the mother is, there will the children
be also."
