Two women—a mother and daughter
—together in a small room, meagerly
furnished. They had on mourning gar

was nut deeper than the gloom on their
" Want are we to do, Alice ?'' said the
mother, bred:lug, in upon a long silence.
"If we, were only back again to dear
Westtrook," fell lough:10Y from the
" Yes, if--but :Westbrook lies more
than a thousaud miles distant. It was
a sad day for us my child, when we left
there. We have had nothing since but

Tears flowed silently over the mother's
" If I could only get something to do,"
said Alice, " how willingly would I
work ? Thit no one wants the service
here that I can give.
" We shell starve, at this rate," spoke
out the mother, in wild kind of a way, as
if fear had grown suddenly desperate.
Alice did not reply, but sat very still,
in an abstracted way, like one whose
thoughts have grown weary in some fruit
"I dreamed last night," she said look•
ing up, that we were back iu Westbrook,
and in our old home. That dear old
home ! low plain I saw everything ?
I sat at the vindow looking cut upon the
little garden in front, from which the air
came in filled with the odor of flowers,
and as I sat there, Mr. Fleetwood came
by, just as it used to be; and he stopped
and said, " Good morning, Alice,' in that
kind way in which he always spoke to
me. I cried, when I awoke, to find it
was only a dream."
" Alt, if there was a Mr. Fleetwood
here !" sighed the mother.
" Suppose you write to him," sug
gested Alice, "the thought comes this
moment into my Mind: I am sure he
would help us. You know what an ex
cellent man he is
"it will, this very day," replied the
mother, with hope and confidence in her
voice. Isn't it strange that he was not
thought of before? Seine good spirit
gave you the dream, Alice."
And the letter was written.
Let us follow this letter to Westbrook,
and note the manner in, which it is re
ceived. We find it in the hands of Mr.
Fleetwood, who his mad it through, aed

Mr. Fleetwood took the letter from the
table on which he had placed it, and laid

of that letter troubled him. Bow could

he had no belp.to r ive. The widowed
mother had asked bins for bread ; and
hOw could Ile offer her mere words in re

Fur two day's the letter remained in
the drawer where he had placed it.

thought of it cow bad again intruded.

Unable to make - peace with himself,
Mr. 'Fleetwood at last sat down to answer
the widow's letter. Ile wrote her a brief,
kind suozestive note, but after reading
it over twice tore it up, saving as he did so,
• " It:reads like mockery. She eskod

her a - stone."
Then he tried it again, but not much
mere to his satisfaCtion. This answer he
was also about destroying; but he checked
himself with the words :
" I might pen forty letters, and the
last would be no better than the first.
Let this one go !"
And he folded, sealed and directed it.
The next mail that left Westbook bore
it away for its remote destination. Let
us return to Mrs. Maynard.
"We should have had an answer from
Fleetwood two days ego, Alice."
The daughter sighed, but did not an

Another day of waiting, in which that
deferred hope which maketh the heart
sick trembled like the light of a taper
flickering in the wind, passing wearily:
away. At five o'clock Alice was at the
post. office again. Now a letter was placed
in herhaticri directed to her mother, and
on the invelope she read, with a heart'
bound the word "Westbrook." Not
fleeter than her footsteps was the wind,
as she ran back hoMe.
"A letter, and front Westbrook l" she
cried out eagerly, as she entered the room
where-her mother was anxiously awaitingi
.The hands . of Mrs. Maynard shook as
she opened and unfolded the long hoped
for answer. It was brief, and its con
tents understood in a few moments--'
Alice, whose eyes were fixed eagerly up
on her mother as she read in silence. saw
her countenance change, grow pale, and
the look of hopeful expectation died out
utterly. Then as the letter dropped to
the floor, her hands were held up against
her face so as to hide it from view, awl
she sat with the stillnes of one who had
been paralyzed. Taking up the letter,
Alice read it. .
"He writes kindly," said Alice, as 23be,
finished reading the letter, "and there
is comfort even iu words when they come
from the lips of a fried."
'Words do not feed the htingry - or
clothe the naked," answered Mrs May
nard in Some iitt •rness of tone.
She had scarcely said this when the
door of the room in which they were sit
ting-was pushed open, and a boy about
ten years old, bare,footed
clad, came to with a pitcher in one hand
and a small basket iu the other.

"May I bring Katy along sometimes ?

"Why yes; Henry. Bring Katy by all

Henry glaiieed toward Alice; as if not
fully satistied:in regard to her view in
the case. But she gave him an assuring
smile and word, and the boy ran home
With'light feet •to tell the odsvi.
"What does this mean, Alice ?'• said
•3lrs. Maynard, looking at her 'daughter
with a countenance through which a dim
light seemed breaking.
"It may be true what Mr. Fleetwood
says," replied Alice, " the work that God
has for us to 'do may now be lying, all
unseen, around us."
" This is no mere chance," I remarked
Irs. Maynard, in a thought fui way.
"Don't you remember," said Alice,
" bow often dear father used to say there
was no suck thing as chance? I felt,
while reading Mr. Fleetwood'Oetter, as
if it was father who was speaklng to us.",
Mrs. Maynard shut her eyes and sat
very still fur many moments; then she
opened the letter, which.she held in her
hand, and read it through slowly.
"It reads• different now. lam sorry

I . feel, dear mother, that suck truth will
not be, in vain. Mr. Fleettvdod',s letter'
has turned the channel of my thoughts
in a new direction. May God reward

The daughter's hope and 'faith flowed
into the mother's heart. They were not
indolept, selfindulgent women. All they
asked was to be shown their work • and
pow, in their eyes, it seemed to be lying
all around thein.
On - the - next day Henry Auld came
over with hi' sister Katy, and received
the promised lessons.,

Fleetwood received no response to the ari

MY DEAR Stu :—More than foiir
months ago you wrote to me, " You Baste
a Father in llearan,.dear Madam, - and la
IFather who has not forgotten you. Lodk

i said also, "Ile has something forall lir
children to do;and something for yon to
do, and your hands will find• the work.
It may now be lying, all 'unseen, around
you." • My heart blessed you, Sir, f - tt•
i those hopeful, suggestive words. Yes,
God had work fur me to do—and it was
lying, even when I wrote to you in My
Ifear and despair, all around me, though
unseen by my dull eyes. Like apples lif
gold in pictures of silver, were your fit'y
spoken words. I had taught a child his
letters, and his poor but grateful tiotli4
'sent me in return a loaf of bread and) n
pitcher of milk fur my children. 'Vora
letter and this offering, in God's proVi
, Bence, came together. I had the teit
and illustration side by side. There were
many ignorant children in our town, said
Alice and I, one to the other, and thly
i are God's children. Let us teach
lof them, as we taught this child, takir
that loaf of bread and offering of milk s,
a sign that God will provide fur us in the
work. We did not hesitate, but acted in
the suggestion at once. And now, t e
have over thirty poor little children ui
der our care, and we have not wanted fig.
bread: Some of the pments'pay- us in
money, some in provisions, and some do
nothing in return. But we take all cliil- 1
