TION. That was the most remarkable com
pany dinner that Mrs. Fulton ever
knew In her house. Faith Insisted on
going to work as If nothing unusual
bad happened. By T o'clock every
thing was ready, and tbe company sat
down. Mn loom Stanley rubbed his
eyes several times as Faith came In
and removed tbe various courses and
served with a quiet dignity that made
Its impression on every side. Mrs. Ful
ton wns visibly embarrassed by the
fact tlint the girl who was In her
kitchen, her "help," wns the daughter
of Mnlcnui Kirk, who was the author
of such stories In the newspapers.
Roy had discovered his authorship at
once by asking him a lending ques
tion, and Malcom bad not been able to
conceal his Identity. There was an
unusual respect In the young gentle
man's attitude toward the Kansas
preacher, a respect, which, however,
did not prevent him from eating the
larger part of a dish of preserves un
observed during the general excite
ment of conversation.
Malcom Kirk looked proudly at Faith
every time she came Into the room, and
the fact that she was there serving In
household work did not disturb him or
give him any false feeling of shame.
Even Mrs. Fulton had a vague dawn
ing of the fact of nobility In service
that bad been an unknown thing to
her, although she could not help feel
ing astonished whenever she looked
around the table and realised who her
guests were.
After dinner wns over Alice Insisted
on going out to help Faith. Her moth
er did not rebuke her, and Faith grate
fully accepted her aid. When the work
was all done, Mrs. Fulton came Into
the kitchen.
She was struggling with an unusual
emotion, and It was not easy for her to
say what she bad prepared.
"Faith Miss Kirk, of course you
must come Into tbe parlor with us this
evening. You ought to have told me
who you were. I I perhaps, I have
not treated you Just right I did not
"Don't say anything about that
ma'am." said Faith. "This experience
has been worth a good deal to me. I'm
afraid I've had some un-Cbrlstlan
thoughts about you."
"You do not need to say anything
about that," said Mrs. Fulton hastily.
Then she ndded In a tone that made
Faith feel that she had been thinking
good deal of Faith's efficient service:
"We shall not know how to get ninny
without you. You have quite spoiled
us for tbe average help."
"I'm glad If you've been pleased," re
plied Faith, and that was all that was
said then, bat the atmosphere between
her and Mrs. Fulton clenrcd up won
derfully. That evening wns not soon forgotter
by the Fultons. The three guests bad
s good deal to say. All of them had
seen a good deal of the world, and
each, from his own point of view, was
a fascinating talker. Mr. and Mrs.
Fulton sat silent and Intensely Inter
ested. Mr. Fulton quite forgot his
business Interests for awhile. Alice
and Faith sat near together and listened
breathlessly to one or two stories Mal
com Stanley told very modestly about
some genuine sdventures In the min
ing districts of the African Transvaal.
Roy, who was Just beginning to de
vour books In much the same manner
as he devoured pie, leaned his chin on
his bands and his elbows on bis knees.
"Vou ought to have told me who you
looking up nt tbe three men who rep
resented so much that was heroic to 1
But perhaps the one person who Im
pressed the whole company most deep
ly was Malcom Kirk.
There was something so modest yet
so manly, so winsome in Its genuine
Christian sympathy In his whole man
ner, that even Mrs. Fulton was pro
foundly moved by It.
"I like that Mr. Kirk," she said to
her husband that evening. And that
meant a good deal for her.
Malcom and Stanley remained that
nlgbt at the Fultons' at their urgent re
quest, and In tbe morning after break
fast, while Mr. Fulton and Stanley
," "Bobert
were talking business In the library.
Faith and her father held a conference
In the parlor.
"I bad planned to take yon back
home with me. my dear," said Malcom.
"Bat Raleigh told me last night or bis
niece. Miss Vsrney, and said there
was no doubt of your being able, with
his recommendation, to secure s good
position there. We waat to do what
Is best In every way. Your mother
Is homesick for you too."
"Well, father. I feel as If I ought to
stay In tbe city If 1 can really become
a breadwinner. Let me try It awhile
at the studio, and If 1 fall tben I'll
come home and spend tbe rest of my
days cooking for you and the boys"
"How about your work here. Faith?
Are you under promise to Mrs. Fulton
to stay any length of time?"
"No. father. But I think It would
be no more than fair for me to stay
three or four weeks until Mrs. Fulton
has time to work In some one else."
"1 think so, too," replied Malcom,
who In all his relations to others was
always guided by the strictest sense of
fairness and honor. "Do what Is light
In the matter. Better talk frankly with
Mrs. Fulton about your plans, and let
her feel that you are willing to stay as
long as It Is tight."
When Mrs. Fulton came In. Malcom
and Faith bad a talk with her. The
result of It was that Faith promised to
remain with Mrs. Fulton another
month. Meanwhile she was to see
Miss Varney. and If arrangements
could be made she wss to enter tbe
studio at the end of tbe time of her
service at the Fultons'. Mrs. Fulton
was considerably surprised snd s good
deal pleased with the arrangement It
was a good deal more than she had
supposed Malcom Kirk or his daugh
ter would agree to do. but she did not
know either of them as well as she did
Malcom Kirk spent a Sunday In Chi
cago, and Faith had the great delight
of hearing blm preach In the church
where she. had gone to the evening
service that eventful Sunday before
They took tea with the pastor that
evening, and tbe next day Malcom
started back to Conrad.
Malcom Stanley went with htm.
There was. If tbe truth must be told,
a secret disappointment In the heart
of tbe young Englishman that Faith
was not going home too. But the two
men said good by cheerily to Faith and
were whirled out Into the west while
Faith went back to her work with a
brave heart, lu spite of a little feeling
of homesickness that crept over her al
the sight of the two stalwnrt Ugurep
on the platform of the receding train.
Her relations with the Fultons were
decidedly different now. She was enre
ful not to presume In the k-nst on the
rhange In their thought of her, nnd
ahen Mrs. Fulton asked her Hint day
If she would not sit down nt the table
with them she said she preferred not
to, which was entirely true, for Faith
believed thnt If she was to serve Ihe
family as she ought at mealtimes she
must be ready to do so In the most ef
fective manner. And she knew she
could not do so If she ate with the rest.
Mrs. Fulton was much relieved at
Faith's action lu thnt particular. It
seemed to Faith, however, that when
Sunday morning came and Alice asked
per to come Into the family circle to
prayers she ought to go. aud she did so
;qu!etly nnd enjoyed It.
When evening came. Alice wanted to
go to church with her. nnd Mrs. Fulton
did not say anything. The new order
of things wns unheard of, but a girl
rbose family frlenda Included men
tike Francis Italeign and Malcom Stan
ley was not an ordinary hired girl.
Mrs. Fulton reasoned with
But before that Sunday
and the CwtteB tad gone te see eta f
xnous lady ptetograptar, who had tak
en a liking to Paltb at the beginning.
She readily agreed to take Faith oa
trial at the end of the month, and Faith
went back to her kitchen quite ex
ultant at the prospect.
"If I could only seud $10 or even $5
a week home, I'd be the proudest girl
In this city," she said as she prepared
the dinner that evening. "And then, in
time, perhaps I can have a studio of
my own like Miss Varney's. I know I
have plenty of artistic Ideas, and may
be one or two of them are original."
So she sang light hearted as she
worked, overcoming the world of her
selfishness and her trials, for it was
not all heaven on earth always even In
that well appointed kitchen, and there
were many things to light without and
But when the time of her stay with
the Fultons was out she parted from
them with genuine regret It Is very
certain that Mrs Fulton dreaded ex
ceedingly to "break In" the new girl
and at the last she even urged Faith to
remain another month.
"We will give you $5 a week If yon
will only stay," she said anxiously.
"And you can play the piano If you
want to," she added, with a short
laugh and a little embarrassment
"I'm sorry, really sorry, to lesve
you, Mrs. Fulton. You have been very
good to me. But I feel as if the Lord
meant me to do something else. Per
haps" Faith said It a little vaguely,
but she had brooded over it a great
deal while at work In the kitchen
"perhaps I may be able
thing 16 make American girls willing
to go out to service."
"I wish you could. Really you' have
no Idea what I have suffered from my
help In tbe lust 20 years," sighed Mrs.
Roy was Inconsolable. He wanted
Faith to bake up 100 or 200 apple pies
and leave them In a cold storage plant
nearby, so he could have something to
eat between meals.
'Tell you what I'll do." be said a
week before Faith's time was up. "If
you will bake a pie every day and send
It over from the studio. I'll give yon
my kodak. It's new, but I'm tired of
It snyhow."
Faith laughed, but declined the offer.
'Then I'll give you the kodak any
way." said Roy, and he Insisted on
Fslth taking It. and his offer was so
pressing that she had not the strength
to refuse. At tbe earliest opportunity
she sent him s photograph of a street
urchin eating a pie, holding It In both
bauds, and Roy delightedly framed It
and hung It up In his own room after
his mother had refused to let It adorn
the top of the sideboard iu the dining
But Faith experienced the slneerest
regret In parting from Alice. The two
girls entered Into what proved to be a
really genuine friendship. There was
not a particle of pride or Jealousy In
Alice's nature and not the least feeling
of social enste. She wanted Faith to
show her how a certain finger exercise
on tbe piano was best done and more
than once expressed the greatest ad
miration for Faith's accomplishments.
The friendship thus- begun has lasted
to the present moment. Then there
began a new life for Faith. Slie seem
ed nt last to have found her place In
the world. Miss Varney was more
than delighted with her. "That girl.'
she said to Francis Raleigh, who called
at ber studio a month after Faith had
been there, "has brought more new
Ideas Into my work than all my other
assistants. She will make her mark
In the profession."
Faith was In the next room and
could not help heating what wns said,
unknown to the artist She trembled
with pleasure, and when she wrote
home that night she gnve her mother
a glowing account of her work and Its
hope for future success. It was with
the keenest pleasure that she was able
to Inclose In this same letter $10,
which she had saved from ber earnings
In the studio.

Involution of the Young Men's
Christian Association.
fir Gee rare Wllliaava, Fonader at the
aeletr, Talka A.oit Ita Social,
Kdaeatlaaal and Spiritual
Writing of the evolution of the Y.
i If. C. A., Sir George Williams, ita
founder, says in the Chicago Tribune
j that the association begun in a small
I way in fact, with only 12 men; that
j was 56 years ago, now it is repre
' acnted by more than half a million
' members, divided into mime 7,000 dif
ferent centers, scattered all over the
1 world. These are organized into na
tional unions, and these again into
one comprehensive international
union. Its inception may be snid to
date from June 6. 1S44, when some of
i my fellow workers met together at
i the close of one of our weekly prayer
, meetings to consider the Importance
and practicability of establishing a
society for improving the spiritual
condition of young men engaged in
the drapery and other trades. Our
j first headquarters consisted of a small
. room in a coffee-house, for which we
i pnid half a crown a week rent. Soon,
when this accommodation was found
1 too small for the increasing number
of members, we removed to Kadley's
i hotel, Blaekfriars, where we had the
use of a good room. Two years after
Ita foundation branch associations
were established In Piccadilly, Isling
ton, Pimlico, Southwark and White
chapel, and at Manchester, Liverpool,
Taunton, Exeter and Leeds. In 1R48
we were obliged to make another
move, this time to rooms in Oreshsm
street, where we were able to found
a library. The association gradually
increased its influence year by year,
and in 18S0 we were in a position to
purchase the freehold of Kxeter hall
(for 2a.O00).
The first social departure of the
association may be snid to have be
gun at the end of 1S45. when the
committee adopted a new form of
popularizing inst ruction nnd informa
tion by giving a course of weekly lec
tures on useful and entertaining sub
jects. At the present time the social and
(Founder of the Young Men's Chrlstlar
educational advantages to be obtained
from the association at its various
branches are many, and besides lec
tures nnd libraries may be mentioned
debating societies, language classes,
chess clubs, restaurants, gymnasia
and all sorts of athletic clubs.
Some idea of the vastness of the
association may be gathered from the
following figures, which are taken
from the last annual report. In Great
and Greater Britain there are 1,654
centers and 1,585 auxiliary associa
tions, with something like 130,000
members, while in foreign countries
(not British possessions) there are
over 3,000 centers, snd nearly as many
auxiliary ansocint'ofta, with a mem
bership of close oniinjlf a million; nor
must one forget that had it not been
for the Young Men's Christian asso
ciation that cafell' nt sister society,
the Young Unix's Christian asso
ciation, woumt prcbably never have
come into eNlBtencp.
In America the movement has taken
even stronger foothold, and since 1851,
both in Canada aud the United States,
systematic effort has resulted in a
large organization. Amongst the
many agencies which have had their
rigin in American association, may
be mentioned the Wow well-known
Society for the Suppression of Vice.
Needless to say, the American asso
ciation, like its prototype in Eng
land, has for its main object the im
provement of the spiritual, mental,
social and physical condition of young
"The youth of a nation are the
trustees of its posterity," nnd the In
calculable services the association has
rendered to young men in teaching
them to keep their minds and bodies
pure and healthy, and helping them
to lead higher, nobler lives, earn for
it the gratitude of all right-thinking
men and women.

Headache may be called a woman's
ailment. Some men suffer from it. But
almost all women have to endure its pain
with each recurring month. This fact
points at once to tbe intimate relation
between the health of the delicate
womanly organs, and the general health
of the whole body. Dr. Pierce's Favor
ite Prescription banishes headache by
banishing its cause. It cures the dis
esses which irritate tbe delicate womanly
organs, fret the nerves and waste the
strength. It increases the vitality and
builds up the nervous system. " Favorite
