Let There Be Light
The first mouth of spring is here
and while it lasts you will doubtless be
too busy to think a great deal about
the food supply. At this season the ail
importaut thought is house cleaning.
This is an elastic term, to some it
means turning the house upside down
ami resettling it: others do but a little
surface cleaning. What is the happy
We know disease lurks in dirt and
that both dirt and disease are found in
neglected coruers. Light, therefore, is
what we need. If ail parts of the
house are kept t'ull of light and fresh
air. dusty spots and germ laden cor
ners will disappear. "I.et there be
light" is good advice for the house
keeper: if it was followed it would
save her »ork and worry.
There should be sunshine and air in
the bed chamber where there are. oh.
so many things to catch and hold dust;
ornaments on dresser and walls: slipper
cases and fancy bags and draperies may
make pretty bits of color, but more
often they only catch dust. Open the
windows and shake the curtains, how
dust dies out into the sunshine. ' Dust
kills more persons each year, in Amer
ica, than gunpowder. Before you start
house cleaning in earnest dispose of
some of the excess furniture and useless
decorations. \on do not need many of
the articles that require constant clean
ing. your family do not prize them,
some one else will accept them gladly.
With the useless ornaments and unneces
sary furniture out of the way you can
• lean your house comfortably.
One can plan even house cleaning so
that it may be dfine in comfort. Need
less steps, tired backs, wrinkles that
massage will never remove, come be
cause we do not take sufficient time to
plan our work. You and I both know
women who take their work easilv,
never seem over burdened and yet ac

winced. "I don't propose to disillusion
the mother. I am strong enough to go
away without seeing her; and God
i knows how my heart yearns, and my
ears and eyes and arms."
Warrington reached mechanically
for the portrait in the silver frame,
but Arthur stayed his hand.
"No, Paul; that is mine."
Warrington dropped his hand, puj

"No; but In a sense you have de

The law of compensation. Sometimes

A pause. Arthur gazed steadily at
the portrait, while Warrington twist
ed his yellow beard.
"The ways of mothers are mysteri
ous," said the latter, finally. He won
dered if Arthur would confess to the
blacker deed, or have it forced from
him. He would wait and see. "The

"Not until that letter came."
Neither of them heard the faint
gasp which came from behind the
portieres dividing the study and the
living room. The gasp had followed
the Invisible knife-thrusts of these con
fidences. The woman behind those
portieres swayed and caught blindly
at the Jamb. With cruel vividness she
saw in this terrible moment all that to
which she had never given more than |
a passing thought. No reproaches;
only a simple declaration of what had
burned in this boy's heart. And she
had almost forgotten this son. A
species of paralysis laid hold of her,

She heard the deep rolce of this
other son say: "Lots of kinks in life.

"It will be easy to obey that Are

"Playing?" echoed Warrington.
"Yes. Do you mean to sit there and j
tell me that you don't know why I j

Arthur read the truth in his broth- j
er's eyes. He smiled weakly, the
anger gone. "Same old blind duffer j
yon always were. I wrote an answer j
to her letter. In that letter I told .her
. . . the truth."
"You did that?"
"I am your brother, Paul. I couldn't

scarfpins. your hats. In that 1 was a
black villain. God! What a hell I
lived in. . . . Ah, mother!" Arthur
propped his head upon his arms again.
"Paul, my son!"
It was Warrington's chair that top
pled over. Framed in the portieres
stood his mother, white-haired, pale
bnt as beautiful as o( old.
"I am sorry. I had hoped to get
away without you knowing."
"Oh, because there wasn't any use of
my coming at all. I'd passed out of
your life, and 1 should have stayed
out. Don't worry. I've got everything

Arthur stood up. "Mother, I am the
guilty man. I was the thief. All these
years I've let you believe that Paul
had taken the money. . .
"Yes, yes!" she interrupted, never
takiug her eyes off this other son. "1
heard everything behind these cur
tains. You were going away, Paul,
without seeing me?"
' What was the use of stirring up old
matters? Of bringing confusion into
this house?" He did not look at her.
He could not tell her that he now
knew what had drawn him hither,
that all along he had deceived him
"Paul, mv son, I have been a wicked

"Wicked! My son, my silent, kind
ly, chivalric boy, will ypu forgive your
mother? Your unnatural mother?"
He caught her before her knees
I touched the floor; and, ah! how hun
grily her arms wound about him.
"What's the use of lying?" he cried
brokenly. "My mother! I wanted to
liear your voice and feel your arms.
You don't know how I have always
loved you It was a long time, a very
Ipng time. Perhaps 1 was to be
blamed. I was proud, and kept away
from you. Don't cry. There, there! I
can go away now, happy." Over his
mother's shoulders, now moving with
silent stabbing sobs, he held out his
hand to his brother. Presently, above
the two bowed heads, Warrington's
own rose, transfigured with happiness.
The hall door ojjened and closed, but
none of them regarded it.
By and by the mother stord away,
but within arm's length. "How big and
strong you have grown, Paul."
"In heart, too. mother," added Ar
thur. "Old Galahad!"
"You must never leave us again,

"Always!" And she took his hand
and pressed it tightly against her
cheek. "Always! Ah, your poor blind

am going to China In a little while, to
take up the work I have always loved,

"And I am going, tool" It was Elsa,
at her journey's end.
Jealous love is keen of eye. There '
was death in Arthur's heart, but he !
smiled at her. After all, what was
more logical than that she should ap- !
pear at this moment? Why sip the
cup when it might be drained at once, !
over with and done with?
"Elsa!" said the mother, holding
Warrington's hand in closer grasp.
"Yes, mother. Ah, why did you not
tell me all?"
Arthur walked to the long window >
that opened out upon the garden.
There, for a moment, he paused, then
passed from the room.
"Qo to him. mother," said Elsa, wise
ly and with pity.
The mother hesitated, pulled by the
old and the new love, by the fear that
the new-found could be hers but a lit

fall, and slower still she followed Ar

She pressed his head against her j
heart. "My boy!" But her glance was j
leveled at the amber-tinted window
through which she had come.
To Warrington, Elsa was a little
thinner, and of color there was none;
but her eyes shone with all the splen-
