Near us were three or four jovial young artists. They were In merry mood; one of them had that day sold a picture to a tourist. We listened to their banter until, most likely growing thirsty, they re-entered the inn. Carrlston had said little since we had been out of doors. He smoked his cigar placidly and gazed up at the skies. With the white moonHght falling on So far as I could judge, the whole organization of his mind was too highly strung, too finely wrought for everyday use. A note of joy, of sorrow, «ven of pity, vibrated through it too strongly for his comfort or well-being. As yet'It had not been called upon to bear the test of love, and fortunately— 1 use the word advisedly—fortunately he was not, according to the usual slg : niflcance of the word, a religious man, or I should have thought it not unlikely they admire Paul making „., »«...ble and they only, wish that they had some such grand occasion in which to preach righteousness, temper ance, and judgment to come. All they want is an opportunity to exhibit the i. Christian heroism. Now the apostle comes to us and he practically says: l will show you a place where Vpu, can exhibit all that Is grand and beautiful and glorious in Christian character and that is the dpmestic circle.' is not faithful in an insignificant sphere he will not be faithful In a resounding sphere. If Peter will not help the cripple at the gate of the Temple he will never be able to preach three thousand souls Into the kingdom at the Pentecost. If Paul will not take pains to Instruct In the way of salva- tion'the sheriff of tho Phlllpplan dungeon, he'will never make Felix tremble. He who Is not faithful in a skirmish would not be faithful in an Ai- mageddoii.

Happy Carriston! II. Carrlston made no reply. He seemed In deep thought. "Your friends ought to look after you and get you a wife," I said. "I have no friends," he.said, sadly.

If all the skies hurtled with tempest, and everlasting storm wandered over the sea, and every mountain stream went raving mad, frothing at the mouth with mad foam, and there were nothing taut simoons blowing among the hills, and there were neither lark's carol nor humming bird's trill, nor waterfall's dash; only bear's bark, and panther's scream, and wolf's howl, then you might well gather into your homes only the shadows. But when God has strewn the and the heavens with beauty and with gladness, let us take unto our home circles all innocent, hilarity, all brlght- I ness, and all good cheer.
