The Gos pel was read in Gaelic, a hymn sung in Manx, prayer offered in Welsh and the sermon delivered in English.

It was a quiet place dur ing lon£" mon 8 tl,e tlie year and found it dull enough, and wondered why it was appointed that I must drag out my life within its limits, but the re maining four months saw it emerge as butterfly from its chrysalis, and waken into such fullness of action thai jt almost compensated. It was during those periods that I learned my beauty entitled mc to a wider sphere, or so I thought in my narrowness of judg ment but when, at ball or reception, I saw men leave the richly attired women whom they met the year round to seek an introduction to me, simply dressed and the daughter of a retired officer, ii was little wonder that a blush of con scious pride rose to my cheek, or my «yc burned with a satisfied vanity. I was but 18 when I met Vance Wil wour. He was double my age, and when l,e bent over me with the wonder...

You knew him not, although he stood fee side her, And, bending lowly, whispered in her ear: Tou could not see him clasp his arm about her, Tou only knew—the world grew dark and drear. And yet the angel kissed her brow so weary. And pressed the fevered hands with lov ing care. And saw the dear face catch the radiant brightness. Nor guessed Why It had grown so won drous fair But ah! the weary days and years that followed The listening for the well-beloved voice, The call of "Mother," and the painful silence, The wondering that the world could still rejoice.

Yet with it all I fear that neither they, nor you, either, my friends, will ever realize the man that I was. You know me only ian—with Ah, that happy July day of which I speak when first I limped to the door and stood in the golden Spanish sun shine! It was but the evening before that I had heard from the regiment. They were at Pastores on the other side of the mountains face to face with the English—not forty miles from me by road. But how was I to get to tliem? The same thrust which had pierced my ...

One night a young' man in Divinity nail at Yale undertook with a toy rifle Jo hit a lamp. But his aim was poon and the ball passed through the window of an eminent and venerable professor of .science and embedded itself in the wall. This was the opportunity for the pro fessor and for science, says-the Ilurtford Cotfrant. He set. to work and computed the curve, and with the exact skill of in fallible figures he traced tire ball right back to the room of an innocent col league who didn't even know the rifle had been fired. The unfledged minister flatly denied all knowledge of the affair. "Cut men, even ministers, have, been known to inake denials in self-defense, and the professor had the proof with him.
