JUNIOR WEEK END
AT NORMAL SCHOOL
Time has scattered the snowy Hakes on her
brow, ploughed furrows in her cheeks—but is
she not sweet and beautiful now? The lips
which have kissed mauy hot tears from the
childish cheek are the sweetest lips in the
world. The eye is dim, yet it glows with the
.apt radiance of a holy love which can never
fade. Oh, yes, she is dear old mother. Her
sands of time are nearly run out, but feeble as
she is, she will go further and reach lower for
you than will any other on earth. You cannot
walk into midnight where she cannot see you;
you cannot enter a prison whose bars will keep
her out; you cannot mount a scaffold too high
for her to reach that she may kiss and bless
you. In evidence of her deathless love, when
the world may despise and forsake you—when
it leaves you by the wayside to die untouched
—the dear old mother will gather you up in
feeble arms, carry you home and tell you of all
your virtues until you almost forget that your
soul is disfigured by vices.
