Angus Galbniltli, the fisherman,, turned wearily to his life, of toll again, carrying in his si lent heart that load-'that would never lift. As for Klsie, when he saw her face be had his reward. She had got back her old, bright, laughing nature, and if ever !l thought entered her mind of the days when' she bad seen Into the inner depths of si strong* man's soul, it was only as a tender memory that soothed rather than dis turbed her.

But much heart-break would bo spared IE when such adverse fate comes people'would only at once settle down and accept the new and smaller income, and live on what it will easily give thfem, rather than to try to."keep up appe'urances." Every day we see people trying to live in a large house with one cheap maid-of-all-work, where they had kept, and kept busy, three competent servants, or even more— trying to keep up with the society that, they can no longer afford to move in, by scrimping and toiling every where, and having no happiness and no peace and comfort; giving an occa sional dinner or lunch, and going with out necessaries to pay for them; mak ing over old gowns indefinitely in of der to accepf invitations, and carrying hearts that' ache harder, and: harder all the time.
