She Wore white—think of her daring to wear white! She was watching for Joseph. He had gone down to Stone- ton—only a mile distant—for the post ,at- 5 o'clock.' That was - twp^hours ago. Joseph did love dearly »-•';& S^'P wlta the old farmers and JP*» *,; 8 .honkeepers, but he really ought to rev'~'i member dinner time. But Joseph had not forgotten his dinner. At this very minute the gate •opened and his little gig rolled in, followed by three enthusiastic dogs—a St: Bernard and two red setters. Mr. Allestree, after embracing his wife as if he had just returned from a ' } year's Journey, went in with her to , flinner, and Mr. Allestree was—but I "•will not describe him; simply he was ,-,, "Everything that the husband of Mrs. >', . .Allestree should have been.

J "I cannot, Henrietta. It's got to be Attended to at once." , "But, Joseph, you'can't go without me. ."•You know you never did such a thing." "I am afraid I must do it this time," lie replied, mournfully. They sat In silence for some min- •ates. Twice Mrs. Allestree wiped away a sly tear with her napkin. At length, bravely assuming a cheerful aspect, she asked: "How long will you be gone?" •: :•'-. "I can't possibly reach London, accomplish all I want to and get home again in less than ten days." .

AlifeStteS fteflted hftf haiideome, attiioas face at the window. Whett he handed out the post to her and she found ndt the letter ehe longed for, an atogfy face it was that peered in at him, and a stem—albeit wetl-bfed—tolce that demanded of htm td htittt through every box, test per chance he had made some error in distributing. The deserted, neglected wife must blame somebody, and she Would not blame her husband. She did not at first eveft dream of blaming Joseph. By the middle of the week her whole mood changed. She felt hurt, deeply hurt There, seemed to be no reason, ho excuse for such neglect To think that this, their first separation in so many years, should be unbrldged by a word! She could not have the consolation of writing to him, for he had left no address, there being an uncertainty about the very part of London In which that troublesome Perley was living. It was the way of men, and he, It seems, was not better than the rest of them. Once out of her sight he forgot —forgot all the love and daily devotion of forty-two years. By Saturday morning Mrs. Allastree was 111—ill enough to go to bed. Jimmy had to fetch both posts, and, after delivering In person the first one, he vowed to Molly that he would not approach Mrs. Allestree again while Mr. Allestree was away. All day Sunday Mrs. Allestree lay silent in a dark chamber. Molly could not get a word from her, nor would she eat. It was almost restful to be so weak. True, she was in despair. She had given up all expectations of seeing Joseph again, but, compared with the bewilderng tossings of vain conjecture, her present state was one of quietude and peace. But by Monday morning she was suffering torments once more. She felt that if Jimmy returned without either Joseph or a letter she would sorely die, and, indeed, she nearly died as it was. When the wheels sounded again.up- n the gravel, Mnt Allestree sat up in bed. She was whiter than her hair. No voices were heard below. She clutched her heart and gasped. Btit presently a door opened and a step came up the stairs. It was the step of Joseph. As he entered the room sfie fell back among the pillows. 'My dear Henrfetta, what's all this?" He looked around almost accusingly upon the two frightened women, as if he had caught them in the act of as sassinating their mistress. "Didn't Jimmy tell youi?" she murmured. "You know Jimmy neTer tells anything. He did say you weren't well. But have you been very ill, dear?", The women had withdrawn, and he seated himself upon the bed. "Joseph, you might have sent me one little line!" "Wh—what? I don't quite comprehend. A line?" Yes it wouldn't have hurt you tg write a line," "Henrietta, I wrote ta you every day and sometimes twice a day." They staged at each other. "But I never got a solitary letter," she said presently. "I sent to every delivery—went myself until I became ill. .Mr. Framwell said , there was nothing from you. It nearly killed me, Joseph." "However," he muttered, "they couldn't have miscarried—I—Henrietta! I have it! Wait; I'll be back in twenty minutes." and the gentleman fairly ran out of the room. He laughed all the way downstairs and she heard his ha, ha's between his shouts for Jimmy to bring back the trap. In a few minutes they rattled out of the grounds, and within the time mentioned they rattled back again. „ Mr, Allestree tore breathlessly up the stairs, bursting boy-fashion into his wife's room. He carried a packaged letters, which he spread out in a circle on the bed, ' There were fourteen of them, and every one was addressed to Miss Henrietta Shower. For a short space nothing was said, and then the two aged lovers began to laugh, arid they laughed until they cried, / "Joseph," she said, "it's very funny, very, but it was almost the death of me. How did you come to do it?" "Why, Henrietta, love, when I once got out of your dear, familiar presence the old days came back completely. You were little Retta Shower, and Joseph Allestree blushed; he did not often qupte poetry— '—' "And our two and forty years Seemed a mist that rolled away," 8\re»r !>y tl»e K^laor. The German kaiser certainly has the faculty of making himself popular with his youthful subjects. Here is a story from Dresden illustrative of this. The emperor was returning from his morning gride up the Tannus strasse on a re cent visit to the Saxon capital, when a email bpy with a pack of bpoks swung over his shoulders, ran up to his perial majesty and. yeii^q, at the top of. l)ig voice: "Aeb, Herr K^iaer, 4o let us have a holiday tomorrow!"

WAS VOUft PAtHE**" SUNDAY'S SUBJfe6t. from th toflhg tot flood Goliath. Mtil— EVER was there a more unequal fight than that between David and Goliath. David five feet high; Goliath ten. David a shepherd boy, brought up J""? amid rural scenes; Goliath a warrior by profession. Goliath a mountain of braggadocio; David a marvel of humility. Goliath armed with an iron spear; David armed with a sling with smooth stones from the brook. But you are not to despise these latter weapons. There was a regiment of slingers in the Assyrian army and a regiment of slingers in the Egyptian army, and onto 1 third and" fourth generation? So that • the text comes today with the force of j a projectile hurled from taigMSest «at- aptilt, "Whose" son art thou, thott young " - Well, says soiae one, "that discharges ine from all respon- art bound to be good, and we cannot help ourselves. Born of unrighteous parentage, w4 are bound to he evil, and we cannot help ourselves." Two inaccuracies. As much as if you should eay, "The centrifugal force in nature has a tendency to faring everything to the center, and therefore all come to the center. The centrifugal force In nature has a tendency to throw every* thing to the •periphery, and therefore everything will go but to the periph- You know as well . as 1 know that you can make the centripetal force overcome the centrifugal, and you can make the centrifugal over* come the centripetal. As when there is a mighty tide of good in a family that may be overcome by determination to evil, as in the case of Aaron Burr, the libertine, who had for father President Burr, the consecrated; as in tbe case of Pierrepont Edwards, .the scourge of New York society eighty years ago, they made terrible execution, and they could cast a stone with as much accuracy and force as now can be sent with shot or shell. The Greeks in their army had slingers who would throw leaden plummets inscribed with the irritating words: "Take this!" So it was a mighty weapon David employed in that famous combat. A Jewish rabbi says that the probability is that Go- Hath was in such contempt for David that in a paroxysm of laughter he threw his head back and his helmet fell off, and David saw the uncovered forehead, and hfs opportunity had come, and taking this sling and swing- Ing it around his head two or three times, and aiming it at that uncovered forehead, crashed ft in like an eggshell. Tne battle over, behold the tableau: King Saul sitting, little 1 David standing, his fingers clutched into the hair of Che decapitated Goliatft. As Saul sees: David standing there holding in his hand the ghastly, reeking, staring tropliy, evidence of the complete victory over God's enemies, tire king wonders what parentage was lionored by such heroism, amd in my text he asks David his pedigree, "Whose son art thou,. thou young man?" The king saw what you and I see, that this question of heredity is, a mighty question. The longer I live t&e more I believe in blood — good blood 1 , bad blood 1 , proud blood, humble Wood, honest blood, thieving blood, heroic blood, cowardly blood. The tendency may skip a generation or two, but it is sure to come out, as in a little child you sometimes see a similarity to a great-grandfather whose picture hangs on the wall. That the physical mental and moral qualities are inherited is patent to any one who keeps his eyes open. The similarity is so striking sometimes as to be amusing. Great families, regal or literary, are apt to have the characteristics all down through the generations, and what is more perceptible in such families may be seen on a smaller scale in all families. A thousand years have no power to obliterate the difference. The large Up of the House of Austria is seen in all the generations, and is called the Hapsburg lip. The - House of Stuart always means in all generations cruelty and .bigotry and sensuality: Witness Queen of Scots. Witness Charles I. and Charles II. Witness James I. and James II., and all the other scoundrels of that line. Scottish blood means persistence, English blood means reverence for the ancient, Welsh blood means religiosity, Danish blood means fondness* for the sea, Indian blood means roam'ing disposition, Celtic blood means fervldity, Roman blood means conquest. The Jewish facility for accumulation you may trace clear back to. Abraham, of whom the Bible says "ho was rich In silver and gold and cattle," and to Isaac and Jacob, who had the same characteristics. Some families are characterized by longevity, and they have a tenacity of life positively Methuselisb, Others are characterized by Goliathian . stature, and you can see it for one generation, two generations, five generations, in all the generations. Vigorous theology runs down in the line of the Alexanders, Tragedy runs on in the family of the Kembles. Literature runs on In the line of the Trollopes. Philanthropy runs on In the line of the Wllberforces, Statesmanship runs on In the line of the Adarnses. You see these peculiarities In all generations. Henry and Catharine of Navarre religious, all thetj families religious. The celebrated family of the Cassini, all mathematicians, The celebrated family of the Medici, grandfather, son and Catharine all remarkable for keen intellect. The celebrated family of Gustave Adolphus all warriors. This law of heredity asserts itself without reference to social or political condition, for you sometimes find the ignoble in high p}a,ce and the honorable in obscure place, A descendant pf Edward .1. a tolUgatherer. A descendant of Edward III, a door-Keeper. 4 descendant of the Puke of Northumberland, ft trunk- m&Ker, Some o| the mightiest families of England gre extinct! while some of those njQst honored in tbe peerage BO bjick tg so ancesfry of hard who had a Christian ancestry, while, on the other hand, some of the best men and women of this day are those who have come of an ancestry of which it would not be courteous to speak in their presence. The practical and useful object of this sermon is to show you that if you come of a Christian ancestry, then you are solemnly bound to preserve and develop the glorious inheritance. , _ ' ' * * * First, I accost all those who are descended of a Christian ancestry. I do not ask if your parents were perfect. There are no perfect people now, and I da not suppose there were any perfect people then. Pterhaps there was sometimes too much blood in their eye when they chastised you. But from what I know of you, you got no more than you deserved, and perhaps a little more chastisement would have been salu- ary. But you are willing to acknowledge, I think, that they wanted to do right. From what you overheard in conversations, and from what you saw at the family altar and at neighbor- loodi obsequies, you know that they had invited God into their heart and their life. Theire was something that sustained those 1 old people sapernat- uraDy. You bare no doubt about their destiny. You expect if. you ever, get. :o heaven to meet them as you expect to meet the Lord Jesus Christ. That 'arthly association has been; a charm for you. There was a tima when you got right up from a house of Iniquity and walked out into the fresh air because you thought your mother was looking at you. You have never been very happy in sin because of a sw^eet old face that would present itself. Tremulous voices from the past accosted you. until they were seemingly audible, and you looked arotmd to see who spoke. There was an estate not mentioned in the last will and testament, a vast estate of prayer and holy example and Christian entreaty and glorious memory. The survivors of the family gathered to hear the will read, and this was to be kept and that was to be sold.andjt was "share and share alike." But there was an unwritten will that read something like this: "In the name of God, amen. I being of sound mind, bequeath to'my children all my prayers for their salvation; I bequeath to them all the results of a lifetime's toil; I bequeath to them the Christian religion, which has been so much comfort to me, and I hope may be solace for them; I bequeath to them a hope of reunion when the partings of life are over, 'Share and share alike,' may they inherit eternal riches. I bequeath' to them the wish that they may avoid my errors and copy anything that may have been worthy, In the name of God who made me, and the Christ who redeemed me, and the Holy Ghost who sanctifies me, I make this my last will and> testament. Witness all you hosts of heaven. Witness time, witness eter nity. Signed, sealed and delivered in this our dying hour. Father and Mother," You did not get that will proved at the surrogate's office, but 1 take it out today and I read it to you. I take it out of the alcoves of your heart, ] shake the dust off it. I ask if you will accept that inheritance, or will you break the will? Oh, ye of Christian ancestry! You have a responsibility vast beyond al measurement, God will not let you off with just being as good as ordinary people when you hftd such extraordinary advantage. Ought not flower planted in a hot-house be more thrifty than a flower planted outside in the storm? Ought not a factorj turned by the Housatonie do moie wqrK than a factory turned by a thin and shallow mountain stream? Ought no you of great early opportunity be better than those who had a cradle unblessed? A father sets his son up in business. He keeps an account of all the expenditures, So much for store tures, so much for rent, so much foi this, so much for that, and all the items aggregated, and, tbe father expects the to give an acpount, «-*_ / This h e »' e - djty, }s entirely Jn.flenend.ent of sopj&l PoHticai canajflonj.

Pugnacity or combat! venesS Characterizes other families. gome* times one form of evil, sometimes another form of evil. But it may be re« sisted, it has been resisted. If the fam* ity frailty be avarice, cultivate unset* fishnees and charity, and teach your children never to eat an apple without offering somebody else half of it. IS the family frailty combatlveness, keep out of the company of quick-tempered people, and never answer an impertinent question until you have counted a hundred both ways, and after you lave written an angry letter, keep it a week before you send it, and then burn it np. Is the family frailty timidity and cowardice, cultivate backbone; read the biography of brave men like Joshua or Paul and see if you cannot get a little Iron In your blood. Find out what the family frailty is, and set body, mind, and soul In battle array. Conquer you will. I think the genealogical table was put in the first chapter of the New Testament not only to show onr Lord's pedigree, but to show that a man may rise up in an ancestral ine and beat back successfully all tbe nfluences of bad heredity. See in that genealogical table that good King Asa was born of vile King Abia. See in that genealogical table that Joseph and Mary and the most illustrious Being that ever touched our world, or ever will touch it, had in their ancestral ine scandalous Rehoboam and Rahab and TTramar and Bathsheba. If this world is ever to be Edenized—and it will be—all the infected families of the earth are to be regenerated' and there will some one arise in each family line and open a new genealogical table. There will be some Joseph to. arise in the line and reverse the evil Influence of Rehoboam, and there will 1 be some Mary to arise in the line and' reverse the evil influence of Bathsheba. Per- laps the star of hope may potat down to your manger. Perhaps you are to be the> hero or the heroine .that is to put down the brakes and stop that long line oC genealogical tendencies and switch It off-on another track from that on which it has been running for a century. You do that and; I will promise yon as fine a place as the architects o£ heaven can build, the- archway inscribed with the words: "More than conqueror."' But whatever your heredity, let me say you may be sons and daughters of the Lord God Almighty. Estranged children from the homestead, come back through the open gate of adoption. There Is royal blood in our veins, there are crowns on our escutcheon, pur Father is King, our Brother is King, we may be kings and queens unto God forever. Come and sit down on the ivory bench of the palace Come and wash in the. fountains that fall into the basins of crystal and alabaster. Gome and look out of the upholstered window upon gardens, o: azalea and amaranth. Hear the ful burst of the orchestra while you banquet with potentates and victors. Oh when the text sweeps backward, let 1; not stop at the cradle that rocked your infancy, but at the cradle that rocked the first world, and when the tex sweeps forward, let It not stop at your grave, but at the throne on which you may reign, forever and ever.
