God perhaps pends summer showers When the grass grows gray for rain To wash the fanes of Ills flowers Ami bid Ills Helds be green again Tell me blade and leaf nnd bud Flowers so fair and grass bo green Growing out of clay and mud How It la you're all so clean —Gabriel Setoun A Lillie Cyclone Bertram was born and had spent all bis life on a Kansas prairie He had never watched the waves rolling in from the ocean nor picked up shells along the shore nor dug wello In the windy beach He had never listened to the wind as it sighs gently through the tops of the pine trees Indeed he had never seen any real woods at all nor any high hills and he knew’ nothing about great rocks Chart are so nice to climb upon and that make such lovely caves to hide oneself under But lie knew all about how the men on the plains ride over the range to bring ihe cattle together In a spring “roundup" He had often played at "throwing a rope" to lasso the stalks of tho tall sunflowers that bloom so thickly over tin western plains IT had seen great fires rushing madly through the dry prairie grass He had even seen half a dozen fires at a time far off ii the great round line In which the wide sky shuts itrdf down over the wide earth He also knew how hard the winds could blow across the great open plains When the spring winds came blowing all the way from the Gulf of Mexico or the Polar ocean Bertram used to watch the great round “tumble weeds" as they rolled rapidly along faster than a horse could gallop Sometimes when the wind grew fiercer than usual it brought a thick cloud of dust to choke the breath and blind the sight Then Bertram would run into the house as fast as his lege could carry him and shut his eyes almost fearing thnt the little house would be lifted from its foundations and be shaken to pieces by the fierce wind of the prairie When Bertram was five years old his mother took him to New England to visit his grandmother anil some cousins that he had never 6een Bertram thought the rooms In his grandmother’s house were very large — large enough for houses he said He was never tired of running tip and down the stairs because he had never before lived In a house where there were Uhy stairways to be climbed One day Bertram’s uncle brought home from the city a large box and told Bertram and his little cousin Frank that this contained something which they would like to see When they opened the box they found in it — a toy village There was a church with a steeple a postoffice a school house a store and some smaller houses There were a pood many little trees to shade Ihe village and a number of little men and women to walk about Its streets There was also a depot and ft train of cars to bring people to and from the town Both of tho children were delighted They took the little things out of the lox and looked at them one hv one Then they began to build the town Frank had often been to the city with his father and thought that he knew all about how a town should be built lie did not think that Bertram knew much about towns So It happened that almost all the things that Bertram set up Frank would soon change to Another place Bertram soon began to feel that It was all Frank’s town and that he was being left out of the play He looked very sober for a few minutes He stopped working and watched the little town as it grew up under Frank's busy fingers But lie was all the time thinking how he could have a share In the play himself At last a new thought came to him The town was Just finished with all the trees and houses set up in beautiful order nnd the little men nnd women walking quietly around the streets Then Bertram cried out “Here comes a slyeone!" and filling his little lungs with air he blow out a great wind of breath In two seconds half of the town lay In a heap with the frightened li title men and women burled under the overturned houses Frank looked up feeling half angry But Bertram’s eyes were shining T To was not cross or naughty he only wanted to have a part in tho play Frank’s eyes began to shine too This was a new kind of fun So he said “That was a blizzard sure enough! Now all the men will have to go to work nnd build the town over again” Then with a good laugh both of the boys set to work with a will and soon the town was built up again ns good ns ever When it was finished the second time Frank ran to his grandmother and whispered something in her ear Grnndmaina smiled went up to the arttie and brought down an old pair of bellows that used to blow up the fires in the great kitchen chimney a hundred years ago Bertram now looked on with great curiosity while Frank took the j bellows Hbd made a wind thart Mew A Truo Nturjr j Old Dapple wa so tiled Ing-tinu was over that grandpa "aid 1 be should re-t a wbob week with oats for dinner every day ’You’re the : faithfulest old fellow!" grandpa -aid warmly stroking H ippie s old no back and forth— back and forth lov-I ingly “Now you shall have a holiday and munch hay instead of rake it Wait i'll trundle the big rake under the mow out of your sight so you’ll forget there was ever any such tiling in the world as work" Then grandpa went in to dinner with grandma and The Twins— everybody called them The Twins with capital I s in their voices when they said it It was quite late lu the afternoon when grandpa asked The Twins to lead out old Dapple to water ''lAt him stay and drink as long as he wants to" he called after them “You needn’t wait— he knows the way ba k alone" So old Dapple stood and drank his fill of the clear sweet water and The Twins ran back to their play But it wasn’t long before grandpa saw them coming toward him at a scamper Both their faces were excited and they shouted in a little breaiiilefk chorus— The Twins usually spoke in chorus— “0 grandpa! grandpa! quick! look up in the mow- ing field! Old Dapple’s up there rakin' j hay all alone ’thout any rake or any hay! He’s goln’ back and forth and back and forth like everything!" And j when grandpa got on bis "fur-offs" and j looked sure enough there was faithful j old Dapple up in the mowing-field pa-j tiently trudging up and down making neat turns at the end of every “bout!" His tired old legs wavered unsteadily 1 but kept on The afternoon sunshine lay on his rough back and dazzled his ! old eyes on the return trips but he never thought of stopping Something ! suddenly dimmed grandpa’s “fur-offs" ! and !i" to'k them off “Faithful old fellow!" he muttered “Go lead him back children and give him oats for his supper And how Th' Twins hugged him while they were doing it!

memory In Gladstone’s beautiful study called the “Temple of Peace" were three desks— one for political and business correspondenceone for literary work and one for Mrs Gladstone who was a most

good story about one of his divinity students It was his custom In order to test the powers of the young men for speaking to give them as they wore about to ascend the pulpit a text to discourse about on their own plan and in their own words This of course was not before an audience but simply among themselves for practice On tho occasion referred to he gave to a young man who as yet had not tried the ordeal the simple word “Zac-chaeus” The young man trembling from head to foot said: T will divide my subject into three parts First We read that Zaechaeus was small of stature and I never felt smaller than at the present moment Second We read that Zaechaeus climbed a tree which reminds me of my ascent into thl3 pulpit Third We read that Zaechaeus made haste to come down— which Accordingly I
