"It feeerns words are too clumsy

the meaning of this- painting. For
tunately, the painting is Itself elo
quent to; those who see-and hear!
After t moment's communion with
this ppinting, it seems, the artist
must Jiave isung with nature when
the; d4y was still at its best. The
trees ktantl! near and far like the
strings of a harn. in full strength.
The hills pose like some wise men
holding the ancient, epics and tales
behind their lips. The lake Is
watting , natientlv to express its
rhythm and harmony. And then,
winds, winds of the wilderness
lot failed to eonieJ Every

I Hqw thankful we should be for

being carried on throughout the
whole of the United States and
Canada among farm and canning
migrant people. Miss Parker
while in Salem will as3ist local
women to plan the. work here In
the berry fields and hop yards for
this year, MIS3 Parker states that
wherever this work has been un
dertaken the result has been the
most happy relationship between
the grower and the laborer. Be
cause of the fact that the children
of the pickers are cared for in a
most satisfactory manner, the ac-
complLshnient of the harvesting of
the crop is more easily performed,
also the health and recreation ol
the children is a great asset, Miss
Parker made clear the fact that j
this is not a charitable proposition
but one that obligates both the
grower and the parent to only a
minor degree. The Council of.
Women for Home Missions is ctfi ;
operating closely. with other!
boards such as Child Health
Board and , the - different labor
boards and she is very desirous
for cooperation as the gigantic
task of caring for one million peo
ple of the United " States alone
calls for .'the highest type or
friendly cooperation. 5

A fire of fagots was sending up
a cheery blaze in my father's 'room
and through the wliidova from
which the curtains had been drawn
aside, the early winter sun was
streaming. ; - ; ; , j ' . .
t Its light pitilessly betrayed the
marks which illness had left upon
the face of young Tom Chester;
who, attired in a heavy dressing
gown, was huddled in a big arm
chair near the fire, as if he could
not get enough of th& warmth.
So accustomed was1 he, appar
ently, ijto a knock upon his door
that he did not turn his head in
greeting when in answer to his
feeblej! "Come in" w entered the
room. ; But when Lillian said
cheerily, "Good morning, boy, I

of weakness or fatigue in his eyes.
Instead, they . gleamed j brightly,
joyously, although the flush which
crept into n!s ? pallid "cheeks (was
patently one; of fever Unstead of
health. ; V .jfr - ; jjr ,.. t:

"at' last." , :);; .'
I could not, keep the quick color
from my own: face' for I knew jthat
Lillian's eyes were upon me, jand
guessed her 'secret amusement at
the extravagance at the boy's tone.

.' "I have been very remiss in not
coming to see you before," I paid
with my best-hostess-ito-invfilid-guest
manner, "but, perhaps, Mrs.

have been under the sway o an
old enemy,; neuralgic j headache,
ever since I came home."
Madge Is Worried.
"No, she was kind enough
to tell me."! he returned tensely
"And you have suffered."
Hi3 tone made this an unbear

"Not any more," I
lightly. "I'm feeling very' fit1, in

of the fire close to his own.
"Thank -you!," lie murmured,
and sank down heavily in hi3 own
chair, closing his eyes for an in
stant, patently; from sheer weak
ness. I glanced alarmedly at Lil
lian, but she gave alreassuring lit
tle gesture and I realized with re
lief that there was" no danger of
J tjhe boy's swooning, a possibility

'minute, he had opened his eyes,
his momentarily dizziness gone.
"I am ashamed to be so good-for-nothing,"
Ife sai l with boyish
embarrassment." I can't under
stand it. I Vas a great deal
stronger yesterday, indeed Dr.
Pett it discharged," me several days
ago, saying all 1 needed now was
to gain strength. I hope to be
able to go home before this. I
have been a burden on you peo
ple too long."
"Oh! Forgive Me!' f
There was som&tSring about the
word "home," as the boy brought
it out it appeared to stick in his
throat vwhich! brought a lump in
my own. I knew that the lad's
only home, since his idolized moth
er had passed lout of his life, was
but a furnished room in the vil
lage. Yet I hesitated, unaccount
ably, under Lillian's keen eyes, to
assure the boy of the welcome that
every generous Instinct In me
urged. j .
I was relieved when Marion's
clear young voice calling for her
mother sonndqd from the corridor
outside. When Liilian had gone
out, I bent toward the sick lad.
"Please let me hear no more
talk 0 your going home," I said
with mock severity, and with
morel than , a twinge of apprehen
sion as to what Dicky would say,
when the afternoon train would
bring him home, but I went on
steadily, for to my notion, the
services of the lad had rendered
us had made it an obligation ol
honor for us to offer him unstint
ed hospitality and care. :
"It would be the height of folly
for you to go away from us' until
you're fully -recovered : Instead of
just being- convalescent," I said.
"And you ought to know how glad
we all are to have you here."
. Into the boy's eyes came a flame
which made it Impossible for me
to look at hijn. And then I felt
his. thin, feverish hands seize mine
and hold them In a tense grip.
"I know I know ," he stam
mered incoherently,, "how divinely
kind and good you are. Ah how
I have wanted to see you! It has
been an eternity since you went
away, but I must get a ay from
here as soon as I car;. 1 can't
stay near you and not ohT for
give me!. I never meant to say
so much." Please don't answer
me. Just forget what I have said.
Remember only that I'd give" my
life to serve you Good-by!" :
He brought my hands to his
lips, and I felt the burning pres
sure of his lips upon them. Then
be released them and sank back
in his chair with a face so ashen
that I was alarmed, and rising
from the chair started for the
door, with the Intention of sum
moning Lillian. But in the door
way with a sneering 'smile set
upon his lips, and the devil of an
ger in his eyes, stood Dicky.
