And gracious gifts of pleasure hold the faint

For skies are fairer which betimes tho clouds

And pleasure is the sweeter when the grief and

And if among your roses red the ivy is en

A Happy Xew Year, one and alii Ah! who

Mijy all the gracious charities that heal and

Drop down into your waiting hands, and may
you e'er impart
To all the weary souls of men the Joy within
your heart.
For hearts that hold no warmth ne'er know
the joy it is to live:
Ou-lives are measured by the joy which we to

Let all the year be golden with our deeds of
gracious love.

mrt. 7I7.X..fjayne.
It was Xew Year's eve in that cold
ind glorious climate where the snow
iies on the bosom of the earth like a
protecting- mantle from December to
March and the nights are crisp and
cold, -with a resinous tang- in the air,
due to the forests of odorous pine.
Sew Year's eve and the merry jingle
of sleighbells in the little town ol
Brandon made a harmonious discord
that reached the ears of two people
who were having- the first quarrel of
their lives, and who presented if they
had only known it an absurd appear
ance, one in a lachrymose, the other in
a belligerent, state. It came about in
the strangest way, this quarrel be
tween two married lovers who had es
tablished their lives upon a firm
foundation of principle and respect, as
well as mutual love, before they took
upon themselves the responsibilities of
wedded life.
These were the first holidays since
their wedding and they had antiei-
ateda season of quiet enjoyment with
each other, and now they were hardly
on speaking terms. And there was no
one to blame but themselves.
It happened in this way: Alioe, Mrs.
Eversham. had been very anxious to
make her husband. Horace, a Xew
Year's present, but had refrained
from prudential reasons. They were
saving money to pay on a home and
were exercising a rigid economy in
which both were equally interested.
If Horace went without cigars and
other luxuries, his wife gave up hav
ing afternoon teas, and hired only one
domestic, who worked by the day. A
certain amonnt was reserved for char
ity, and as the end of the year ap
proached and cold weather brought
extra demands, this fund gave out and
there were several cases of destitution
"which they could not relieve, but were
compelled to hand over to the char-
, itable society of the church.
Therefore it was at Alice's own sug
gestion that the society got up a bazar
for the sale of contributed goods, and
took the proceeds to ameliorate the
conditions of their poor.
This was . the beginning of the
trouble- When the sales were over,
they took the things that remained un
. sold and put them up at so much a
chanee. Alice had put her foot down
it was a very pretty foot against
the proceedings, but had been over
persuaded that it was perfectly riht;
as the church would sanction it. Still.
.. she only gave a negative consent, for
she would neither buy nor sell any of
the chances. 15ut when one of her
young friends took a couple of chances
for her a dressing-gown and chocolate
set she had said, laughingly, that if
she won they might send them to her
She did not say anything about it to
Horace, who was too much occupied
with the closing business of the 3'ear
to attend the bazar, and knew nothing
of this lottery feature.
She would not have had himknow it on
any account, inasmuch as he had been
fond of games of chance when she mar
ried him, and through her good in
fluence had entirely reformed. That
dangerous passion for gambling, which
does so much harm in the world, had
found an abiding-place with Horace
Eversham, and was becoming one of
the pernicious influences of his life,
when Alice effected a cure which she
believed to be permanent.
Tbey had been happy and' larky as
two children, until Uorace-came home
bringing a fine goose.
"It's for dinner Xew Year's day," he
said, holding up the white-feathered

When that functionary saw it, she
lifted up both hands:
"Oh. but it is a bennty, missis. An'

"You needn't cook it," said Alice, "I

"That will do." said Mrs. Eversham.
and she walked off leaving Jane Ellen j
staring at the goose. j
It was Xew Year's eve. Alice and
Horace were only a few feet apart, in
reality, but miles of distance could not
have separated them so completely.
Horace had tried to explain, but had
been instantly silenced.
"Xo, no. There can be no explana
tion. Yon have broken a law of moral
obligation. You have broken your
promise to me, said Aliee.

There was a ring at the door bell.
The two com nosed themselves to mo
callers. The conventionalities of life !
must be observed, and no one must
know that they had quarreled. Kut it
was only a boy with a note, and a
package for Mrs. Kvei"shnm.
It was the drcsving-gnwn from the
bazar. The chance taken for Alice had
drawn it. Alice did not look upon it
with horror. On the c.-intniry.shcconld

he could get his breath, "do you know

"I hope f know the difference be-j

,Aliee, who did not believe herhusban

and nothing but the truth. - -.
