May God most hih e'er vat:h between us,
Though sundered wide our pathways be;
May He who led his chosen paople,
Keep watch and ward :twixt you and me.
When lured by pride and vain ambition,
When worldly joys a snare may be, He who guided ancient Isra3l
Keep watch and ward 'twixt me and thee.
When sorrows come and shadows deepen,
And dark and dread our ways may be.
May He who watched and shielded Judah

'Mid all the changes yet to be,
May He who led his sons from bondage
Keep watch and ward 'twixt me and thee.

A Caged Bird.
A dainty room, all blue and gold;
a glimpse of sky, smiling and ten tender;
der; tender; a fleck of sunshine; a low,
white bed by the window, and a
fair-haired, blue-eyed girl. A lovely
picture it was, but one lull of sad sadness,
ness, sadness, too, for our Edith was crip crippled
pled crippled for life. She had watched the
bit of blue, with feathery, fleecy
clouds scudding by. Somehow it
always made her feel easy-like to
watch the sky when it smiled so.
Then, with a sigh, she had taken
one of the lilies from the blue vase
on the window seat and was gaz gazing

Aunt Evelyn came in dear, good

'Considering the lilies, dear?"
"Not exactly that, auntie. Belle
brought them to me as she went
on to school, and somehow they
keep reminding me of these lines:
God's plans, like lilies pure and white, unfold;
We must not tear the close-shut leaves apart;
Time will reveal the calyxes of gold.
And, auntie, I was wondering
what his plan could be for such a
poor, crippled life as mine."
'No, no, dearie, not a crippled
life, but only a little, frail, crippled
body. Trust his plan to work out
ood for you, my child, and through
this grievous cross your life shall
grow wondrously fair and beautiful.
I hope, Edith, you may be spared
to see this 'lily' unfold; but if you
never know why it was best, trust
him still, for our Father never
makes mistakes in his dealings
with us."
"I know, auntie, and I do try to
be patient, but it is, oh, so hard to
lie here helpless when I intended
to do so much! intended to make
my life sweet and beautiful and
helpful, and now I must be a bur burden,
den, burden, instead of a burden-bearer.
So hard to lie here and do noth nothing.

Then auntie knelt by her side
and asked the Good Shepherd to
be very near and bless with all
peace that beloved lamb of his, and

and had come to be sorry with me.
Such a hard morning it had been
to all of us, despite the balmy air,
blue skies and trilling of bird song.
During all the weary months since
the dreadful accident we had honed
she would some day be well, but
that morning our last hope died
out, when the physician, hai said
our darling would be a helpless in invalid
valid invalid for life. And, instead of
comforting her, I had taken the
little, white hands in my strong,
brown ones, and cried over them,
and she had forgotten herself and
all that she had lost in the one
thought of comforting me. "Never
mind, Nell dear, it is all for the
best in some way. Perhaps I was
growing selfish; perhaps I was for forgetting

I was a plain little body, and had

was our darling, the very sunshine

gloried in her matchless beauty, so
like the golden-haired mother, who
went from us when I was eight
years old and our baby only four.
Fifteen years had gone by since
then, and I had watched the little

Sometimes it was to lead the choir
in the home church, to help in
Sunday school or mission work, or
to visit the sick and bereaved.
Many had been the long after
noons spent in the close, stuffy
little mission room, teaching the
neglected little ones ot the 'city's
lower district, singing song after
song, for the children who, per perhaps,
haps, perhaps, had never heard aught else
than noise and brawl in all their
hard little lives. And how they
loved her!
Such had been our Edith, so
ready to go in ways where ih?
Master would have her go. How
dark and mysterious seemed to us
the providence that bid the busy
little worker, "Be still."
That sad morning as I sat on
the steps in the sunshine, unheed unheeding
ing unheeding the birds twittering and chirp

lilacs, I kept wondering how Aunt
Evelyn could see even the faintest
light in the dark cloud lowering
over us. And when I went back
to my sister's side, I found her
wrapped in peace, with never a
shadow in the sweet, calm eyes, as
she listened to auntie reading that
sweetest of songs: "He maketh
me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me beside the still
"Trust his leading, dearie, for,
though the way be rugged and
steep and full of thorns, there are
sure to be 'green pastures and
'still waters' for the resting of his
weary ones. And, Edith, never
grieve for the work taken from
you, for the Lord wills you to
serve in other ways. Do you know
that here in this room you are do doing

'Only yesterday I met Miss Mar Margery

I was with Rena's progress in
school, and the dear soul would
take none of the praise, but said:
Mrs. Moore, you must thank Editn

when I feel down-hearted I always
go and spend awhile in the blue
and gold room and come away re refreshed

doing nobler work.' And dear old
Mr. Easton says he preaches better
after he has caught a glimpse of
Beulah at your bedside. So, dearie,
don't feel as if you were doing
nothing because you must lie here
and suffer, for you are a blessing
to all of us, and I think we are
better because of our little, pale pale-faced

the world."

I am glad, auntie oh, so glad!

I'd never mind the suffering if only
I could help in some way the ones
that are such a blessing and com comfort

deal to be thankful for, and I do

To The City Council.
Are you a member of a city
council? It you are, the Witness
.desires to put a question which
you may answer at your leisure It
is this: If a city councilman gives
his vote to license a saloon, shou'ri
not that saloon be placed next door
to his place of residence? W
think it should. As it has to be
next door to somebody, it should
be located next to the man wno
votes to give it license. To us
this appears nothing but justice.
If he has any objection to this pro procedure
cedure procedure his mouth would be stopped
effectually by his previous conduct
It might therefore be a first-rate
plan to group the saloons and the
city councilmen who favor license
together. True, the locality of the
saloons would change occasionally
if this were the rule, but it would

put birds of a feather together.
