A tall, broiiil-shoiililcrnil imtn, with
the bearing of nil allilnto, walked
through tho Michigan Central Depot
recently, timing his strong, enorgollo
strides to tho slow, fnelilo steps of a lit
tle old lady with white huh', who clung
to his arm, says the Fm Prrm. As
leople jostled rudely hy hor he drew
ler nearer to him, anil all the time he
kept tolling hor cheerful little lies
about the, future. She was to come
and visit them again noxt summer.
That cough did not amount to any
thing, tho doctor had told him so. She
must bo very careful of herself this
winter, and in the spring she would
come out as chipper its a lark. Ana
ha kept up the little liclion until she
was seated comfortably In tho palace
cur on routo for the long Jotirnoy to
California and, ns lie knew, for that
longer one which has no bounds.
"Don't wuteh me out of sight,
George," she sniil in a little querulous
voice) "it will he siiro .to bring bad
luck If you do." So he left before the
train did, aud as he turned away, after
tlirowltiir hor a tmrtlnir kiss, a tear that
did honor to his manhood full from his
eyes for the mother whoso ftuso he would
uuver looK upon again. Aim as ne
wont up tho street he whistled "There's
a hind that is fairer than day" so sweet-
that people passing turned ana
luoked at him. hut they saw only an
ordinary traveler on the highway of
life, ami wont on their way again.
