I know the faces of friends, the illim
itab'o variety of straight and curved
lines, all surfaces, the exuberance of
the soil, the delicate shapes of flowers,
the noble forms of trees. By placing
my hands on a person's lips and throat,
I gain an idea of many specific vibra
tions, and interpret them. Touch can
not bridge, distance, but thought leaps
the chasm. I have felt the rondure of
the infant's tender form. I can apply
the principle of the landscape and to
the far-off hill. The exquisite beauties
of sculpture cannot be -discovered by
sight, but only by the touch of the
hand, passed over it. Touch brings the
blind many sweet certainties which our
more fortunate fellows miss, because
their sense of touch is uncultivated.
When they look at things, they put
their hands In their pockets. No doubt
that is one reason why their knowl
edge is often vague, inaccurate and
useless. The keenness of our vision
depends not on how much we can see,
but on how much we can feel."
Touch, you see. Is to her more won
derful than sight.
Now why do we not cultivate this
sense of touch and add it to slirJit?
Just think how much more we cciild the girl to the fairy.
hand a bottle of milk and some rolls.
The bread she broke Into a bowl, pour
ing the milk over it and giving It to
the sick man, who ate it with eager
ness. Little Alice sat on the foot of the
bed talking about the beautiful things
sh had seen In the stores. "Oh. Dad,"
she said excitedly, "I saw a big doll
dressed In pink and silver spangles on
her skirt, and a fairy book, and a tea
set in china, painted with pink roses
and Santa Clauses. and bushels of
candy, and oranges, and nuts, and
Pies, and Just millions of bushels of
toys it was Just fine."
The sick man smiled feebly. He
looked around the chill, bare room, out
of the window at the mist streaming
down the panes, at the table on which
stood nothing out a smoky lamp and
the bowl. Then he glanced at the
eager brown face so happy in thinking
about the bright things, and not rea
lizing that none were for her.
All this time Dorothy and the fairy
had stood at the foot of the bed. but
somehow the people In the room did
not seem to notice their presence. "Per

lave been cautioned against let-
ig the blind lead the blind for
fear of disaster. But there is an In
stance in which the blind so-called can
lead us into quite a new world. Of
course in this case, the blind are not
blind. The blindness is with us who
think we have good sight. The ques
tion of blindness Is an enlightening
one to study. ,
But this instance of the so-aclled blind
leading us comes from the life of
Helen Keller. In a magazine article
she speaks of the sense of touch and
what it tells her. She says she values
the sense of touch much more highly
than eyesight. She goes so far as to
say that if a good fairy were to offer
her her eyesight in place of her sense
of touch, she would refuse to make the
"The world that I see with my fin
gers." she writes, "is alive, ruddy, sat
isfying. Through, the sense of touch,
see In this beautiful world of ours.
How seldom do any of us undertake
to see anything with our fingers. We
are content with our eyes. Perhaps
we have never known there was a
sense of sight in our finger tips. But
now that this blind girl has opened
our finger-eyes- for us, why not profit
by the knowledge?
It is a sense we can all cultivate.
She speaks also of how much more
she finds in sound that do most people.
It might not be possible for us yet to
cultivate hearing to the extent she has.
But nothing prevents. us from devel
oping our finger tips, from opening
these eyes of ours which have with
most of us been closed since birth.
If we cannot do much at it ourselves,
we can teach our children to develop
this sense, and thus broaden their
world for them. And if we wish to go
no further with It ourselves than mere
ly as a form of amusement, we could
some time, when a little group of
friends have dropped in, discover Just
how much we see with our fin iters.
Each one of the party could be blind
folded In turn, and some object given
to him for him to describe from the
sense of -touch. It might be interest
ing to find out Just how much we can
see with our Angers, how blind we are
where we could see. Why not try it.

SPOUT PART 1L
THE fairy flew on Just as If It were
not pouring rain a bit. She took
her way down the avenue, past the big
gate and out into the lighted street.
Onward she went, softly but swiftly,
through the mist, over the top of the
fine houses, sailing past the big gay
stores. In the windows she could see
piles of toys heaped and in the bake
shops tons of steaming bread, frosted
pastries, pies and sugar . figures. But
they soon left the shopping district and
took their way toward the outskirts
Dorothy noticed the streets grew
narrow, the houses small; there were
tiny, ill-kept yards and many windows
were patched with bits of paper. The
children looked poorly dressed and
their faces pale. The fairy stopped
before a small door which led into
a dark hall.
"We will go in here." she-said, lead
ing the way. Dorothy, though wet to
the skin, followed. In a moment she
found herself In a tiny garret room.
The walls were of plaster, which was
broken off in patches; there was no
rug on the bare floor, and the only
furniture was a bed in which lay a
sick man, a broken chair and a table.
The girl noticed that the man was
moaning in his sleep. Presently the
door opened and in came Aunt Sarah
and little Alice. Sarah had in her

replied the fairy, "for we are Invisible
to all their eyes."
"Poor little Alice!" said Dorothy.
"How sad It la that she has to live In
such a cold, bare room and have no
"Yes." replied the rairy, "you see
how little some people have and how
much you enjoy. But do you think
about others, about sharing some of
all you have with them, about helping
others to be comfortable and happy?
No. You think only of how much you
have, of how much you wish to get
and how you can bring about your
Dorothy hung her head. Yes. she
was mean and selfish. All the money
and Jewels and silks the world owned
could not change that. The rings and
necklaces would not alter the fact that
her heart was rold and unfeeling. Alice
went to a corner and broughx a doll
which she had made it was a stick
with a rag wrapped about it.
"Take me home," whispered Dorothy.
Her heart was touched at last, and she
felt ashamed of her proud, selfish
So out of the window again they
flew, and in a moment Dorothy found
that she was picking herself up from
the kitchen floor. It was dark, the
light shone In from the street, but
the glow had died out of the stove
and she was cold.
"Goodness!" she exclaimed. "I must
have been dreaming. But it has done
me good. I will try and be a different
girl now and share my things with
others who have so little."
Just then Sarah came into the room.
She had a shawl around her head, and
seemed as if she had been crying. Dor
othy knew the trouble.
"Sarah." she said kindly, laying
her hand on the woman's arm. "I havs
seen the fairy of the Water-Spout and
she has taught me a good lesson. 1
am going to have the finest Christmas
of my life, but not in the way I at first
expected. I mean to do what I can
to make you and your family comfort

two nice rooms, and he will get a
doctor for your husband. Mamma and
I will see that little Alice has plenty
of good clothing and I will fill her
stockings with toys. You are right
the best Christmas Is the one
In which we do something for some
one else. I am glad you have helped
me know this, for I see that we are
happiest ourselves in making others
So Dorothy told her parents all about
Alice and Sarah's sick husband. And
they were delighted to help her carry
out her plans, which ended In so much
comfort for Sarah and little Alice.
