"You have plenty of lovers/' " 1 want, when I marry, a man who is brave, equal to any emergency. If I give up my liberty, I want to be taken care of.

Whatever may have been the object of these words, the thought reached the heart of a dozen or more passengers, and it was interesting to note the changed expression on some listless faces. In utter unconsciousness of any effect of her words the lady from whose lips they fell passed out into the street. Perhaps in the great day it may be her happiness to know that the Lord then used her tongue for a blessing to some heart which had as yet failed to comprehend the meaning of its life struggle: for the truth she emphasized was a truth which all of us need to realize. Not our personal enjoyment, nor our se...

" 1 wanted that dress to wear to the great ball; 1 thought it would be the very thing," said Doris White, with a curious little quaver in her voice, while she winked away the fast coining tears. " People talk so much about the * antique' nowadays, and Lisettc Ktlingham wore her great-grandmother's weddinggown to Sarah Bell air's lunch party and made a regular sensation. So I hunted this one out. of the red chest in the garrett and ripped it all up and tried to cut it after the Fashion Bazar pattern, and now only look. It's ruined!" "Ruined?" said Miss Phipps, doubtfully, as she surveyed the fabric of lilac silk lying 011 the sofa. 44 Yes, ruined ! It's too short behind, and too scant in front, and the waist is too short, and the sleeves are so tight that they all burst out while 1 was trying them on. 4* What a pity 1" said Miss Phipps, who was one of the sort who always spoke slowly with due accentuation on every syl...

The solitary window was totally concealed by a heavy faded curtain depending from the roof, and as the wind moaned dismally through the broken panes of glass its somber folds swayed to and fro. The inmates of this mournful den were seated round the table smoking their pipes and talking, as if furtively, in whispers.
