" This is the letter: " I will give A honso and land while you shall live, If in return from out your eevon One child to mo for ayo is given " I looked at John's old garments worn, I thought of all that John had borne Of poverty and work and oaro, Which I, though willing, could not share ; ' I thought of seven mouths to feed, Of seven little children's need, And then to this, " Come, John," said I, " We'll choose among them a3 they bo Asleep."

Wlion these sacred duties aro understood as they should be, and proper care is taken not only of tho body but of. tliQ mental condition, we shall seo happy, cheerful mothers in every home. There are many oauses lying at the* root of this evil, for evil it is, when the uweotness aud freshness leave a young woman's face, and hard ...

ROMANCE AND REALITY; on SENSE AND SENTIMENT. CHAPTER I* " Is anybody at homo ?" ' "Nobody.'' " Ah, good morning; Mrs. "Wilton. Do you call yourself nobody?" • "As l am not the somebody you meant, I may as well be nobody." , The young man stood hesitating at the window which, opened into the lawn, with rather a disconcerted expression upon his face, while the lady, who was a buxom-looking widow of thirty, though rather full-blown for her age, regarded him with a comical smile. "Don't look so disappointed, Mr. Brough ton ; Maud will be here soon; you won't have your journey to.Hampstead for nothing," she added. " Come in and sit down, and have a little chat with me until she returns." " But, really, Mrs. Wilton," expostulated the young man, " I did not come purposely to see Maud." "Stuff and nonsense! What is thereto be ashamed of in coming to see a pretty girl, or in being spoons upon her, for the matter of that?" Her raillery was evidently not agreeable to the young man. To say the ...
