"To those who
have not known
you." returned Love.
Fluttering down tbe Oral road Joy
came to a countryman flinging seed In
the brown furrow of a rouxh and
tony fluid. HI fate burned with an"
and wind and teamed with wrinkles
looked sullen and unhappy. lla wl
thinking of bow long be must toll be-
for the seed would grow and ripen and
how little it would bring him la re-
turn. Ills ( oiw'd to him to! homo

glorious : M and ai be looked the
Man's llimM became shining.
"It's good to be alway. out of door
la light of God' hand riling. Yei.
I'm rich - I'm happy. What a tool
never to think of It before!"
Joy next entered a bouse where an
overworked ami fretful mother wai
preparing breakfast for her children.
Everything went wrong; the children
were provoking; the mother wa cro.s.
"Mow can I live through another
day?"' the mother waa saying with
harsh discontent when a stir of eoft
air and flush of light entered the room.
Tbe youngest child the flrat to aee the
radiant vision c-lappcl her hands for
glee; the other children dimp'.eJ with
pleated surprise and tbe mo' her turned
In time to catch the nutter of Joy
"Joy" the cried holding the hea-
enly visitor fast. " Love baa tent you.
Why l.d w uat think of Love be-
fore?" In a moment every bard burden
lipped from tbe ruother'a ahouldera
and the room wa filled with mirth and
doing her why Joy next came to a
business rnan ahut In a dlugy office
reckoning over bli account with knit-
ted browa. It seemed to him ai it bJ
were nothing but a machine counting
tip figure all day long and the mm of
It all waa nothing -nothing but vanity
and veiatlon of spirit. Tbe tired man
leaned back wearily and sighed. Ilia

through a grove of tree came upon
two friend tilting upon a shaded
bench with their back turned toward
each other the very picture of misery
and despair. Full of bltternej their
thought dwelt iimn vexation and
wrung. and cruel stinging word
which could never be uusuld. Joy pain-
ed a moment wona-Tlng. and then put
her arm. around them.
"Foolish children!" she whimpered
"this gulden moment hold the surety
of your happiness for a lifetime lu iia
bosom. Do not let It pass!"
The lust of tho rays of the setting
sun fell over them like a shower of
gold as Joy gently turned their face
towards each oilier and the friends
only knew Ihey were In ench other
arms forgetting all the world In a rap-
ture of tenderness.
Here !iv appeared and hiking Joy
by the band said entreatltigly:
"Come with me little ulster to one
more henrt and then we will go home."
After a long flight they entered nn
old tenement bouse eo old that It wa
a mere shell Into which the storm and
Mtter cold pierced In winter and thi
aim burned In summer. Joy fainted
and ilckenrd a they entered the foul
place but Iive held her In her arms
saying "It I for Love" sake little (li-

fo a ilmir standing ajar and saw a dark
relied figure gliding out. It wa fur-
