that it was the best thing he had done

There was hardly an excuse left for

he could not resist the desire to seek
his place again and see if perhaps
something might not draw the girl's
attention away from the stream.
When he arrived he looked down
and there, complacently munching
the fresh grass at the stream's edge,
stood an old cow. The girl stood
near by, evidently afraid to sit down.
She looked about her as. if for help

ran down the bank and picked up a

NO. LIFE NEED BE EMPTY
New Joys and New Life Can Always
Be Found to Take the Place
of Those Lost-
Did you ever walk down a street
where many pretty homes and well well-kept
kept well-kept gardens could be seen and come
suddenly .face to face with an empty
house, writes XJargaret Wilkinson.
Did you not find the contrast some something
thing something painful?
You had been passing many houses
that showed unmistakable signs of
life. There were curtains in the win window,
dow, window, perhaps a baby carriage or the
children's toys on the veranda, the
lawns were well kept, the flower beds
were full, of blossoms. Perhaps you
could even see a dear, white-haired
old lady in a parlor or sitting room as
you passed or in another home you
caught a glimpse of a small boy with
a large doughnut in his hand or a
mother talking to her baby as she
lifted it from the floor.
And then you came to the empty
house. The windows were bare and
dirty and there was no vista beyond
them but blank walls. The walls were
stained and streaked with mud that
naughty little boys had thrown. The
weeds were rank and thick in the
lawn and In the flower beds. The house
was no longer a home of human life.
The life that was in it had gone out
and forgotten it
Some lives are like empty houses.
The humanity, the inspiration and the
soul have gone out of them. Perhaps
there has been a great disappointment
and the new tenant has not been found
to take the place of the old the new
joy Instead of the one that could not
be had, the new work that would have
meant success instead of the old work
that did mean failure. And so the
eyes that the soul should shine
through are lusterless and vacant.
The beauty that should abide within
and be seen from without is not here.
The stains of sorrow and cynicism are
not wiped away. The weeds of dis discouragement
couragement discouragement and doubt and hesitation
and fear have choked the kindly
growths that make a home garden for
the personality to dwell in.
But there Is no empty house that
cannot be made into a home, if some someone
one someone will go and take into it the hu humanity
manity humanity and the life. There Is no life
that cannot find new work and new
joy and become a habitation for the
soul of a man or woman to shine
through and to fulfill.
