".She Had Outlived Her Usefulness.''
Tot lone? since a man in middle
life came to our door asking for tlie
minister. W ieu told that he was
out of town he soe'iii l disappointed
and anxious. (On liiiir qu istioned
as to his businoss, lie answered:

My heart rose in sympathy, and I
,said. "You have met with a great
"Well, yes," he replied, with hes
itancy, "a mother is a greatloss in
general, but our mother ha loutlived
her usefulness." She was in hor
second childhood, and her mind had
' grown as weak as her body, so she
was no comfort to herself, anil was a
burden to everybody. '.There were
seven of us, sons and daughters, and
we'agreed to keep her among us year
G about, liiit I had more than mv
share of her, for she was too feeble
to be moved when my time was out,
and that was three months before she
died. But she was a good mother in
her day, and toiled hard to bring us
W ithout looking at the fae of the
heartless man, I direct-id him to the
honie of a neighboring pastor, -and
returned to my nursery. I ga.ed on

should outlive the love of mv .
dren! leather let me die while my
heart is a part of theirs; that my
grave may be watered with their
tears, and my love linked with their
hones of heaven.
When the bell tolled for the moth
er's burial, I wont to the sanctuary to
pay my only token of respect to the
ged stranger, for I felt that I could
give her memory a tear, even though
her children h id none to shed.
"Slio was a good mother in her
day, and toiled hard to bring us all
up; she was no comfort 'to herself
and a burden to everybody else !"
The cruel heartless words rung in
qiov ears as I saw the cofiin borne up
the aisle. The bell tolled long and
loud until its iron tongue hit chron
icled the years of the toil worn moth
er. One, two, tine1, four, five. Ifow

seven, eight, nine, ten, rang out the
CSale of her sports upon the green
sward, in the meadow, an I beside
the brook, rdeven, twelve, Hurt
davs, and little household jovs and
cares. Sixteen, sevt-nt-'eii and d'.jht
e ui, sounded out the enraptured vis
ions of maidenhood and dreams of
early love. Nineteen, brought us be
fore the happy bride. Twenty, spoke
ot the young mother, whose heart
was full to bursting with the new
strong love which God had awakened
in her bosom. And then stroke after
stroke told of her early womanhood,
of the loves and cares, and hopes an I
fears, and toils through which she
passed during thos( long years till
-if t v rang out har.-.h ail loud. From
"that to sixty each stroke told of the
warm-hearted m ther and grand
mother, living over her own joys an 1
sorrows in those of le-r children and
children's children. Kvery family of
all the group wanted t lie grandmoth

should seen re the prize?. But hark !
The bell tolls on, seventy, seventy

She murmurs in plainiive tones, that
after all her toil and weariness it is

die in; that she must be sent, rather
than invited, from house to house.
Ih'ghtv, -ighty-one, two, three, four.
Ah ! She is a second ch il l, now. 'She
has outlived her usefulness; she has
now ceased to be a comfort to her
self or anybody." That is, she lias

eighty-nine. There she lies now. in
her cofiin, cold an 1 still. She makes
ho trouble now; demands no love, no
soft words, no tender little oiU.-es. A
look of patn-nt endurance we fan
cied also an expression of grief for
unrequited love sat on her nvirble
features. Her children were there,
clad in the wee Is of woe. and in iro

When the bell ceased tolling the

sotfaivd form before him, he then

are all these, her defendants. All I
know of her is what her sons have
told me here to-day that she was
brought to this town from afar sixty
nine years ago, a happy bride; that
here she has passed mMt of her life,
toiling as only mothers ever have
strength to toil, until she has reared
a large family of sons and daught
ers; that she has left this home here,
clad in the weeds of widowhood, to
live among her children, until health
and strength left her. God forbid
that couoieuce should accuse any of
you of ingratitude or murmuring on
account of the care she has been to
you of late. When you go -back to
your homes be careful of your ex
ample before your children; for the
fruit of your own doing you will cer
tainly reap from them when you tot

treat you as a friend, as one who has

that you may never say in the pres

en: "Uitr mother had outlived her
usefulness; she was a burden to us.'
Never, never '. A mother can never
live so long as that. No; when she
can no longer labor for her children,
not yvt care for herself, she can fall
like a precious weight upon their bo
soms, and call forth, by her helpless
ness, all the noble and generous feel
ings of the human heart."
! "Uncle Bob," remarked a citizen
I of Dallas to an old negro who sells
milk, and who was complaining how
much his customers were indebted to
him, "you must adopt the cash sys

and a dubious shake of the head, said:
