A DOMESTIC HERO.

(If to Making a Waituw Happy.
I come acrosa a hero tbe other day.
lie looked much tbe same u every
day mankind. Ho did not know
be waa a hero, nor did I until he bad
left tho party in which I met him.
Domtwtio heroism, that of the pri
vacy of borne, with no Victoria Croat
or congrtwional medal dangling be
fore it as a pombility, is, after all,
perhaps the nobleet of all heroiam.
Iiere was a great, strong, healthy
aud wealthy man, fond of outdoor
a porta, of travel, of the activity of a
busy commercial career one wno in
his youth waa a man' man rather
than a woman a. Fifteen years ago
he married, and in a few years there
came three children into the hotise-
hold.
It hud been a happy family. He
has been a kindly husband aa hua
bunds go, and she a pleasant and
dutiful wife. Out of the night oame

Hiin-0 that time bis career has been
entirely altered. His buaineas was
quickly arranged so he could be fre
quently alwt-nt from his office. He

companion and plajnnate compressed
in one domestic providence. Never
had woman more devoted attendant
uor more faithful and intelligent
nurse.
All the little questions of house
keeping and of the care and training
of children, of their clothing, their
pleasures and their pains, fell to him,
and in his hands they have been
managed with a wisdom and care
absolutely wonderful This has been,
remember, something of 10 years'
standing, and it has grown instead of
lemming. Outside of his compara
tively casual attention to business
his horizon is confined to the walls
of his home. To make the wife for
get her burden of affliction and be a '
happy woman through it all has
been his hnppinefis, and with such a
spirit he could not fail.
They travel alwut considerably,
this family, and all the details are
taken care of by him. No hired
nurses or governesses are permitted
to usurp any of his duties, although
there is one of each there at band aa
his representative in times of en
forced alwence. So skillfully is all
this done, so modestly is it carried
out. Hint even the chief beneficiary
doe not realize what is occurring
and that is his reward. "They do
not build Westminster abbeys nowa
days," said a friend of mine once,
and I thought of his remark when I
heard the story of this man, for the

The body of the late American
