The widow looked from one to the
other of her laughing children in a sort
of happy bewilderment.
" Well, now," she said slowly, "will
you inform inc why on earth you told
me those awful stories?"
" Why, mother," said Tom, mischie
vously, "we thought perhaps a dose of
ma/ trouble would cure you of the
imaginary ones that have made you so
miserable,all your life long!'
" And you have solemnly promised
us, mother, that after this you would
conjure up no more fancied trials to
make yourself wretched !" coaxedSuay.
" Well, I don't see but what you've

to laugh, half inclined to lie
vexed. "Aint you 'shamed o' yourselves
children, to go and play such a mean
trick on your poor old mother? But

the world than I've got 1"
The widow's Thanksgiving lesson
proved an efficacious one. She never
grumbled any more. •
" Mother always sees the sunshiny
side of things hew," :said Tom, "and
ain't it jolly ?"
Tem was right
Itiwas a bitter cold night in January
—a night when homeless wanderers on
the moors might have sunk down and
froze to the earth, and the very marrow
seems to congeal in one's bones.
" There is one advantage in steam,"
growled a fat old man in the corner seat
" wind and weather don't aflect it. No
flesh and blood horse could stand a
night like this, but the iron horse keeps
right ahead, whether the thermometer
is at zero or water boiling heat."
Just then the conductor entered.
"'Tickets, gents, if you please."
"It's a dreadful night, conductor." I
said, feeling with stiffened fingers for
my ticket in the breast pocket of my
"Dreadful," feelingly responded the
conductor. "Why, the brakesmen

It was quite a city, with a handsome

usual crowd around the

hands in pockets, and cigar ends . tam

Our car was nearly the last of the
long train, and but a single person en
tered It—a slender young girl wrapped
in gray blanket shawl, and wearing a
neat little traveling hat of gray straw.
h e seemed to hesitate like one unused
to traveling, and nuttily sat down near
the door.
" Pardon me, young lady," said I,
" but you bad better come nearer the
stove." -
She started, hesitated a moment and
" Does this train go to Bayswater ?"
she asked in a voice deliciously soft and
" Yes ; can I be of any service to you?
"Oh, no—at least, not until we reach

" Do, we stop again ?"
, "Only at Exmouth."
She drew a deep sigh, seemingly of
relief, and settled back iu a corner. By
the light of the lamp I could see her
face—that of a i lovely child ; apparent
ly she was not more than sixteen, with
large blue eyes,igolden hair drawn away
from her face, and a little rosy mouth,
like that of a baby.
• • " Do you expect friends to meet you
'at Bayswater, my child?" I asked lu
" .NO, sir—l am going to school there."
" It will be an awkward hour for you
to arrive by yourself—one in the morn

"Oh, I am not she a e

So the express train Ihundered on,
with steady, ceaseless pulsing at its iron
heart, and constant roar.
Suddenly the s'gnal whistle sounded,
the train began t slack its speed.
Surely we're n t at Exmouth yet, I
thought, unless have fallen unconsci

I glanced at m watch ; it was barely
half past eleven, and I knew we were
not due at Exmouth until a few minutes

the window pane and looked out.
We had stopped at a lonely little, way

_ "No; don't know what place it is—

" Does this train stop at way stations?
"Not generally; they must have been

" It is cold," she said, in a scarcely

her. Oh, how I wish they would bur-,

where on earth was the water to come

"To tell you the truth, I stopped to
