superstitions in different countries the most curious being In Scandinavia In the German Alps It was held that on Christmas eve cattle fell on their knees In adoring worship being given tho power of speech during that one night but woe to the person who overheard or listen ed to their converse for the reaper Death would surely find him let him hide as he would before seven days were passed

trimmings a rich lace and cord dor were perfect It didntII Gordon had said that money had been j getting tight for some time back I wouldnt show him the bill just yet so I thrust it Into n drawer of my dresser and turned to Marie who stood wait lug to dress inc I was contemplating my reflection In the mirror with much complacency when the door opened and Mr Gordon come In For a moment was half frightened at hIs pale face and grave air but ho said I only stopped for a moment Mrs Gordon to say that I shall not be able to join you at mad ants tonight Business affairs will keep me down town late i Before I could ask him what he thought of my dress he passed out of the room and presently I heard the street door close It was nothing new for me to attend parties without tho escort of my husband for somehow ho was always Immersed In business nei ther was It new for Mr Gordon to look grave or pale for he hind lost his fresh color these lute years At length I was ready and was driv en to the home of Mine Stnpletoii InIhow the hours passed In madams drawing rooms would be to tax your patience Stilllcleut to say that It was long after the midnight chimes had rung I was handed from my carriage to my own door by the most distin guished gentleman of my set The atmosphere In tune drawing room was deliciously warm In contrast with the teinpcniUire of the sharp December night wlthoiQ It was pleasant to sit there with my dainty slippered feet over the register and the waves of lustrous silk bathing the carpet and rellect that I swum on the topmost wave of the sea of fashion In the city around me mad the Christmas chimes ringing out tram the church towers and the warm air stealing up from the register soothed my senses to delicious calmness Suddenly while I sat thinking from the dim corners of the drawing room Seemed to glide out n train of figures each dressed In unfashionable gar flouts of bygone days and yet strange to tiny each garment was recognized Jiy mo as something that I had worn In those days and In the face of each figure turned toward me I beheld my own The figures glided around me then seated themselves on the opposite Bldo of the apartment each looking nt me steadily and with my own dark eyes Gradually the llguro nearest my t i ELKM1KK IJKAUTIFLL MAIDKN STOOD IN Tint MOONL1CIIT right seemed to invest Itself with tho accessories of a picture and n thin

In n flood of gold I did not speak oven in n whisper while the picture of my entire childhood was unrolled before me but thoughts like these glided athwart my Vrnln Was I ouce that happy heart ed wild toraplng child whoso great est ease was to please her parents and whose greatest grief the loss of some woudlaud lIcU liven while I sat gazing the scene Slowly faded and out from tho dim mists that had Infolded the figure near oat thc chtld rose fair and clear tho second picture before me- A slender beautiful matdcu stood In the moonlight beneath tho rustle porch draped with honeysuckles that climbed over tho farmhouse door It was Daisy but n child no louger She woio a neat but simple dress of pale pink muslin and n single white rose plucked from tho bush besldo the doorstep adorned her hair Suddenly a firm step came up the walk leading to the farmhouse It was n young and frank faced man wile jollied her and Daisy bhisbtAand they went lu and sat the moonlight by the west room window Eloquence was not necessary to love In those days and Daisy and Charles Gordon wit long In the moonlight and talked together Charles always thought he must leave at 9 but lie is in no baste tonight Ten halt past 10 11 goes by and there they stand In the moonlight When they part a tender kiss burns on Daisys checks and a slender gold ring gleams on her finger She nnd Charles are betrothed and she goes to her chamber to sleep the first dream of n happy plighted love For n moment I stretch out In Mantis toward the maiden lu tho farmhouse but the scene grows dim the figures fade and another picture unfolds lie fore my view It was a bridal scene Charles had grown more grave looking for lIe was n business man now and three years WHAT IS IT DAISY had added luster to Daisys fuller figS ure Both wcro trusting and beloved and saw none but clouds of gold In the long vista of their future- I could only sit and gaze longingly and eagerly while the phantom fade away from my gaze Another picture now rose before me I saw myself clad In n cheerful raoru lag robe Charles hail prospered In business gold poured Into his coffers and with gold cams Fashion with Am bltlou and Pride and a score of demons In her train It whispered You are young and you are beauti ful In the great world you would bo an acknowledged queen Put your husbands wealth to use Let not your beauty fade out in tho nursery Your child will get on well enough In the nurses care Live In tho world nnd shlno like a queen And this was the beginning of the shadow which darkened the picture I saw tho glitter of tho ball the splendid furniture the silver plate the gay cqulpago and the stately apartments nnd amid It all through the opened door of n neglected nursery I saw a pale drugged d year old child slowly dying Tho end came The tiny rose wood casket was closed over the fen tures of the child who died of motherly neglect I saw n strong man bend in convulsed grief over his dead boy and thou go out silently and growing graver day by day turn to his business again I hoard frantic bursts nf grief from the stricken mothers mouth aid cluspcd my Jeweled hands In anguish A long pause fell between and thou another the last picture fell before me I recognized Its faithfulness ot once Ten years Intervened between this pic tire and the preceding one I had not changed save to fuller anti perfected beauty Everything was ns plain a- sdaythe magnificent furnishings of the home with Perslnn carpets costly tables bronze nnd marble statues and china and silver wares and through thtso walls I moved n cold nnd beauti ful woman of Ice- I shrank from the portraiture with dismay lilt while I sat mill gazed In to the picture glided n pale careworn wearing the same expression I bath often seen upon my hushand8 fuee How changed he looked from tlio hopeful manly Charles Gordon who had stood before mo In the moonlight He hind been a grave and silent man ewer since lie boy died but there was now Borne fresh trouble eating away his life What has brought this about I asked In a moment my question was an swered Into the magic picture came a shadowy finger Which pointed to tho paper itrown table at which my hut hand sit I gazed nnd beheld a revela tion and mechanically my eye ran over every paper he opened The catalogue WH fearful n long array of bills iLito furniture statues Jewels silks n long array of which I recognized dIll tinctly my own agency and balancing this catalogue stood n tangled trade empty coffers with the word Panic written as with a pen of fire While ho sat mind unfolded each paper and laid It aside I stole nearer and gazed upon tho one ho had Just taken It was my latest bill the bill for my ball dress I made n movement to snatch It from him nnd tho spell WOK broken What is it Daisy You asleep here- and dreaming I started anti to and myself seated in the great velvet chair amid my husband standing beside me Did I fall asleep I must lint you Charles you have not slept I salt for just

has carried me down I have dragged away tilt long hours of this night trying to de vise sonic loophole of escape hilt all In vain do not care for myself but for you you Daisy and bo groaned In bitterness of spirit- I could not bear It without n burst of tears lie thoughtful I so selfish I pressed my lips to his burning fore hcttd and said amid my sobs No Charles not ruined for we hire saved our love from time wreck Charles looked nt me steadily and n weight seemed to late beenlifted off his head Ills lips lost their grim expression and there was a ripple ot tears In his voice Daisy you

private that time open Held aitd also she thought about the farmer am how be comes to cut time eden limit leaves time lung stiff grass III tho hedge bottom safe and standing when time trout Is nil curried away to the linen So when Mr HarvestMouse began to talk to Mrs HarvestMouse about where to build their home size begged him to chooses the long still grass hi limo hedge bottom rattier than the com In time Held That In how It happened that their tiny nest was built between the crass stcmii and they built It very cm ingly of narrow blades and bits of fiiuluT or any soft and bending stuff tat they could find and they IIxce- lUIII nil In such n clever way that at lost a wall round nest no bigger than n cricket ball WAS fixed high up among tho stiff gn en stalks as If It grew thereby Itself It was soft nnd light and very tuba so the summer air Mow gently through ntid kept It nicely aired Tile fuller unset standing round about hid It from time lmvks nnd a lit tilt blmlwewl turn prow up and helped them It twlnl aruntid time stems and twisted its tendrils from one to nnoth er tbtii bung Its tiny belta about old made u merry garden near the neat pkwgaijstill wlmi eight little baby mice were snug ami safe Inside They tlttltl Into tilt soft round hall quite iMrfcctly wlilrh shows how WH they wore And now tlirougli time hot summer days while Jim flunuwtMonso was busy with the children Mr harvest MUIIIO vas running JI1e and timers eel lectlHg vows for hits wife and lflesi and other tooth for himself nnd for his fam ily What n gay clever little moue ho was nisi as for her she was time iiutck9st daintiest little lady In the land and she tlllllJet tier children to bo quick and dainty too She also taught them to IK good though what sine would heave dome lad they been naughty I cannot tell for there was not a corner In time house to stand them InShe ran nimbly all about time outside of the nest mind when the little ones be gan to bite each others tails for fun she patted gently through the open net work of the walls and told them how their lung tails would lie useful when they came to climb tho toll stiff grass es In the green null mnry world of time hedge bottom where they lived tad tho bindweed quite agreed In what site said for it knew the value of n tall to hold by One warm evening tho little mother uuelroomtbywax a great deal moat time world She told them how as she sat there she could see the green grass blades bending over her and a sweet bindweed bell swing gently tinder the weight of a bumble lice She sold that far away quite high move tho bindweed bells spine high above time grass blades III tho hedge bottom even higher than tho eon there was blue blue sky She could see patches of It now as she looked up through their tangled Time tiny mice inside tIm nest got test less at thq very thought of that and they asked her to get n bit und i oke It through for them to see You silly silly ones she said there lire groat things that you cannot under stand In the big world and one of them Is time blue blue sky It Is only to look at not to touch and some day you will loam that It commies with the sunshine stud good when It rains A lark onco told me that he loved It even more than the green world for though the sweet grass cools his breast and holds his nest and his little ones yet the blue blue sky Is quite full of Joy and goes far up above the farmhouse smoke and above the hawks null Is wider than limo widest held and though ho were to King his heart out from dewy dawn to Bunsct ho could never fill It nil with music Oh the big bluo sky Is very wide Indeed and very far away us you will see ono day when you are strong and quite grown up Just then n gnat Hew by nnd Mrs HarvestMouse sprang up and caught It and gave It to time children through the wnll for though she talked about time skyshb knew that they were hun gry and Saw tho gout and caught It cleverly roil now that tho smut was getting low she talked about tho whiter She sold as surely as time night crone on when the daylight tiled away so surely would the winter come when summer time was ended What could the winter bo the chill dren thought and one wee motor e niiido bold to say ho did not care mind It might come any time for him He hind Just caught tad eaten n tiny Hy that lIall rpt through the network of the nest and he vould catch aud cat time winter too no doubt Wily not Tic WHS getting strong and hold enough for anything Ills mother gave a lint where his lit tie cur showed pink between the grass el and silenced nil his silly talk at once and then went on to tell how the win ter wim as far beyond their thinking as the blue blue slay wax high above their Lends The warm soft wind Unit rings our bindweed bells she said aunt mukcs sweet iiiUMle In tine gratm will turn to cold mild bitter blasts tint will blow the leaves about and then time hells will wither one by one mid full away und the grasses will turn quite dull nail dry mid rub against rack other with a Bhrlll amid fearsome sound as time wind sweeps up eking the Ledge bottom At that the little mouse whose car was tingling still felt frightened and he quivered while his mother talked und wondered what would come of it She knew Just how ho felt mid sue gave him comfort mid advice nboutI the future and she told them all what thoIthe big world anti the hedge bottom are hearing tho cold weather we may sleep quite peacefully each In a tiny hole until time winter time Is over mud the summer comes again You must seek your holes when the right time comes mid then bo sure to curl your tails well In to keep them from the frost They nil squeaked a little prunlso to remember what sloe said and ntt think they knew better and thou they whis pered softly to each other of the great world and time sky and tho whIter time boIand chattered merrily catching llles i from tlmo to time and trying who could lie most clever and saying how much they hnd grown since yesterday Mr HarvestMouse came home and rubbed noses with Lila wife with n grave mud anxious air for ho brought bad news front the corn clo by Time hawk hail conic nnd caught their kind ly neighbor Mr FletdMoupo Hut this he surd quite gently sitting closo to Mrq HnrrwiiMouse lest time little ones should hear Ah she said and heav ed n nigh how glad I am we choso the long tlff gross In tho hedge bottom rather that the com In time field Yee mid he we did well to choose time ledge bottom And with that he ran about the nest and counted his right children noxiously and scolded them a little and then went
