finely built, with a full broad h.-st and
slender sinewy arms that looked as if
made for protecting just sm h a thing as
.Marian all through the days of hi r life.
His hands did not look much as if th.-y
had worn kid gloves, but they were just
such hands as a weary wommi would
cling to for assistance and upholding when
trouble was near or a hope bad failed her
He sat very tpii.-t, wiifi the soft, seemed

Marian's pretty little trilles were scattered

reverently as a child puts out its hand to

Marian came in smiling, with a pink l!u-h

down against her cheek.
Her husband did not answer, but he
felt truly that such a tender flower needed
teud.-r and loving cure, or it would lie
blighted. He looked out of the window
the lan lscae looked drearv.
44 I am sure you do not look well ; what
can I do for you ?"
John Elmer forced her anxious faee
down uiKJii his bosom that he might not
see how sweet it was, then he said:

will effect us materially."
