Ood does not create the intelligent
mind with Its powers and faculties fully
formed at the beginning, with all the
principles of truth apparent to thought,
and all the elements of experience in
folded in Its consciousness. He creates
it infantile, He makes the very com
mencement of its being dependent upon
others, and then he leaves the forces that
are lodged in It and that are Innately
prophetic of a future to be unfolded,
trained and matured by the action of
other minds, manifested in speech or
books, by the exercise of thought, by the
ministry of experience above ' all, by
contact with effort and disappointment,
I have learned more by my companion
ship with you, by the action of your
mind, than by effort and suffering and
experience combined. But why should I

like those of a drowned person when

I cannot say that I was afraid of her,

waa an air of reftiioment about her that
told of better days.

I did uot answer directly. It required
an eviwilve answer, and ono so fromei
that she could not detect thiit it was
such. I still kept my eyes upon her, and
tald quietly: "Who said tlmt you were

"You need not fear me, I have no

' A warm light came into her eyes at
those words, and with a little persaa
lion I got her to lie down on the sofa,
where she soon sank Into a slumber, My
thoughts wero vari as I gated into taat
face, pnle and careworn, yet beautiful
still and framed in with ita wealth of
raven hair. My life had been a life of
toil and slruRgliug and nifl'oring. On
by one my relatives had passed into the
shadowy tomb, and just then there was
agrent sorrow brooding in my heart,
but I felt thankful that, amid all, Ood
