The silver moonlight flooded all the familiar landscape, bathing it in mystic depths of un fathomable brightness, and transfiguring all things into a fairy-like beauty. A beautiful night—a night of stars and fleecy cloudlets, and soft, sweet odors from a thousand pungent leaves and fragrant flowers distilled by the silent dews. Olive and Janet had gone upstairs to their little room, and now sat upon the floor beside the low window looking out into the moonlight. On such a night sleep was out of the question for an hour, at least, and so they sat, slowly unfastening their hair and gradually preparing for bed. A murmur of familiar voices on the little porch below sounded upon their ears and hushed them to silence. They leaned together on the window-sill and listened. The sisters knew the voices well—the dear voices of father and mother. They had come out into the porch before going to bed, and were sitting on the old time-worn bench there looking at the calm, clear night. The sisters could imagine just how they were sitting, though they could not see them, the dear old mother with her wrinkled hand on her husband's knee and his broad homely hand covering it; they had seen them so, often. "Darby and Joan," Janet called them, lovingly. "Mother," they could hear the old man say, and there was a little tremble in his voice, "it's most fifty years sence we was Printers and Publishers.

" 'T would be nice, father," they could hear her answer, "but I guess we hadn't better think of it; 'twould be an awful sight o' bother, an' what with Olive teachin' and Janet to do all the work with what little I could help, 'twould make it pretty hard. Guess we hadn't better, father." There was a little silence and then the old man spoke again. "Hanner," said he, "we didn't never have a weddin' journey nor a honeymoon. Almost seem's if we ought to have 'em now. You know how 'twas—we was poor an' couldn't even afford to go out to Uncle Eben's for a little trip, but settled right down to housekeepin' an' hard work at once, without a bit o' play spell. In all these years we ain't been nowhere to speak of except to the Centennial, an' we didn't either of us really enjoy that, what with the rush an' crowd an' confusion. Seem's if 'twould be nice to go 'way some-wheres now on our wedding journey— seem's if 'twould make us feel young again, somehow. " 'Twould be nice, father," they could hear the gentle old voice murmur, "but I guess we hadn't better think of it. Mebby the children would think 'twas kind of childish." "Mebby they would, mother," the old man answered quietly, and then there was silence. After a little they went into the house and the girls heard them lock the door and wind the clock and then all was still. Something glistened in Olive's great dark eyes, and the moonlight touched to crystal clearness a drop upon Janet's fair cheek. The two girls crept into bed and lay talking in low voices for a long time before they went to sleep. For the next few days there were busy preparations in the old farmhouse. Mysterious doings were going on all over the house. Mother was bustled off somewhere every day to visit some friend or neighbor in the vicinity, who gladly welcomed the dear, kind soul and her perpetual knitting work. , „ ~ Father and "the boys," stalwart men of twenty-five and thirty, were busy in field and orchard doing up the fall work. Janet worked away happily all day, and when at four o'clock Olive came home from the little red-painted district schoolhoase,she donned a big apron, put on her thimble and went resolutely to work in her own room npsl^Mf ' Eytdente sofeetMng was in the air. • -: Wednesday morning dawned bright and clear, with that indescribable crispness and sparkle in the air that makes October a royal month. Olive had asked the trustee for the day and he bad granted it willingly. Janet, looking like an apple blossom in her pink calico 'gown and snowy White apron, ? flitted about the house on light feet, deeming to be every where at once. |jJohn and David were wrestling with their Sunday neckties and polishing their boots to the very highest possible shine. The old folks looked on wistfhlly, but silently, wondering what all the commotion wasabout. Jg , Jj|jg Oat ,in the woodsbetifather conrftfedto children must bo goin' over to Millers-ville to the county fair. But it does seem kind o' cur'ous they don't speak about it." "That's so," mother had made response, "but mebby they think we are gettin' too old to be took into their affairs," and she sighed a little tremulous sigh that told plainer than words the sadness that she felt. Almost simultaneously Olive's clear contralto and John's deep bass came ringing down the stairs. "Mother, please come up here a few minutes!" and "Here, father, I want you upstairs a little while'" Wondering a little, but never guessing, they went upstairs together, and in the hall parted. What mother saw as she entered her daughter's room was a shining, silvery mass of something lying on a neat, white bed, a soft and silky pile of material which gradually took form and shape until she saw a beautiful gown whose delicate laces in neck and sleeves combined with the soft gray tint, made it look bridelike indeed. "Oh, girls!" was all she could say, as Janet put her into a chair and began to take down her little coil of white hair. "Dressing the bride" occupied perhaps an hour, and when at last the toilet was pronounced complete, the faded blue eyes behind the gold-bowed glasses saw in the large, old-fashioned mirror a sweet and' dainty picture—a beautiful-faced old lady with delicate heliotrope nestling among the laces at her throat, and a tiny spray in her hair. A faint, pink flush of excitement had come to the withered cheeks, which made the old face a sweet history of what it had been in its youthful prime. Olive and Janet kissed her, triumphantly. "Mother, you don't realize how sweet and young you look! you have worn black so long!" And, "Oh, mother, we're going to have a wedding in this house today, and you are to be the bride!" "Fifty years ago to-day," the old bride; softly murmured, looking down at the? thin circlet of gold that she had worn soj long, and in her heart a su.dden longing' sprang up, newly kindled, a quick and| strong desire for him who had been her; husband all these years. | She looked wistfully toward the dooI| and took a faltering step towards it, but just then it opened, and John and David entered, escorting between them proudly the hero of the day attired in a fine new! suit of broadcloth with a festive little? posy in his buttonhole, and a face beaming with renewed youth and gladness. The children were forgotten in the quickf impulsive embrace that followed, and the long kiss of love and honor and fidelity • that crowned that half century of weddi life. iiC.^ LI iiu Wiuipti all the country round. Everybod, there. Not only the old who had growi old with the happy bride and groom, but the middle-aged and strong. A great table had been spread out of doors under the drooping elms that had been slender treelets on that wedding day fifty years ago. The minister who had married them was long since dead, but his son, a middle-aged dominie, had been procured for the occasion, and performed the marriage ceremony with grace and dignity. Olive and John acted as bridesmaid and groomsman, looking very happy at the complete success of their innocent conspiracy. Congratulations and gifts were many. The bridegroom seemed scarcely to need the support of his handsomely-engraved, gold-headed cane, he felt so .young, despite his seventy-two years, and stepped blithely and briukly about among his guests with his slim little wife upon his arm, smiling and happy. When the dinner was at last over.David pressed something into his father's hand —two tickets for the Western city in which his married son lived. "Your trunk is packed and ready and the train leaves at four o'clock, father," he said with characteristic straightforwardness. "All you've got to.do now is to take your wedding journey and enjoy a six weeks' honeymoon at Sam's." The other children gathered around and laughed gleefully at the bewildered joy of the newly-wedded pair. "It's what I've wanted to do ever sence Sam went West," the old man said quaver-ingly, and the tears stood in his eyes. The mother only turned and leaned her head upon the shoulder of .her tall Olive—and Olive kissed her. There were misty eyes all around and smiling faces as the carriage drove off amid a generous shower of rice and an old shoe thrown by some one for good luck. And-as the guests dispersed after examining to their cariosity's content the array of substantial gifts, the yonng folks at the farmhouse congratulated themselves and each other upon the wonderful sac-cess of their scheme. And as the train sped westward over the shining rails, the little old bride sat in quiet happiness at her husband's side and looked at the flying landscape. There was a sweet peace on the dear, wrinkled face, and a light of newer, deeper tenderness in the blue eyes behind the glasses People noticed how loverlike the old man was in his attentions to the slim little old lady by his side, and some eveai won dered if this were not possibly ibe bi^f ending of some lifelong romance. But n& one heard him as the bridegroom leaned over and said in a low voice, "It's be'n a grand day, Hanner—a day tall o* all kinds o5 nice surprises, but they- ain't Qoifiiu\ makes me feet" better than to know that after all we ain't too old for the children." , . ; And the bride made soft resj :"ThajfS;ap^:ity^ Then there was a long and bl silence aB they journeyed on together 'In that new world whlch is the old^' the world of love.

The passover lamb had been eaten, the supper to commemorate. "The Lord's death till He come" had been instituted, and very soon now He would go forth to his agony in Gethsemaue, but He thinks not of Himself, He feels for these sheep whom He is so soon to leave, and He com forts them. 2. "In My Father's bouse are many mansions; if it were not so 1 would have told you. 1 go to prepare a place for you." After the resurrection He said, "My Father and yonr Father" (xx, 17). Being in Him, His Father is our Father, and all the glory given to Him, He shares with us (xvii, 22) What the mansions are we may not know, but every believer may thankfully say, there is one prepared for me. 3. "And if 1 go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto Myself; that where 1 am, there ye may be also." 15. "If ye love Me keep My commandments." The questions of Thomas and Philip and the Saviour's replies to them are passed over in the intervening verses, but i trust the teachers will not pass them over. Every word of Christ has a breadth and length and depth and height that eternity alone cau unfold. Observe particularly the great promises of verses 13, 14 and the key words, "In My name," "That the Father may be glorified." The verse we are now upon will be more fully before us In verse 21, but notice xv, 10, "If ye keep my commandments ye shall abide in my love; and 1 John v, 8, "This is the love of God, that we keep His commandments." Then 1 John iii, 23, opens to us the mean ing, "This is His commandment, that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one Another as He gave us commandment." 16. "And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another comforter, that He may abide with you forever." The Spirit is not Christ, but a different personality, even another comforter, who would be to them all that Jesus was, and who would never leave them 17. "The Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him, but ye know Him, for He dwelleth with you and shall be in you." Because He is a Spirit of Truth we cannot know Him unless we are truthful. 18. "I will not leave you comfortless; 1 will come to you." ; 19. "Yet a little while, and the world eth Me no more; but ye see Me; because live ye shall live aluo.'' Observe His other references to this little while'' that He was to be with .em U). chapters vii, 33; xii, 85; xiii, 33, and •during which He is personally absent, as to His visible presence, is but a "Little while." See Heb. x, 87, the revised reading of which is, "Yet a very little while, He that shall come will come and will not tarry." He is alive forevermore (Rev. i, 18). and being reconciled by His death, much more shall we be saved by His life (Rom. v, 10). But we long for the time when we shall be with Him and like Him (1 John iii, 2 Phil, iii, 20, 21). 20. "At that day ye shall know that 1 am in My Father, and ye in Me and I in you." 21. "He that hath My commandments and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me, and he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father, and I will love him and will mani fest Myself to him." This includes verse 15 and indicates how we may know that we love Him. If we love to do His will and take delight in His commandments; if they are more to us than gold or silver, or than even our daily food (Ps. cxix, 72; Job xxiii, 12), then we may know, indeed, that we love Him and may expect special manifestations of the Father's love. 22. "Judas saith unto Him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that Thou will manifest Thyself unto us and not unto the world?" This was Judas the brother of James, the son of Alphaeus, who also wrote th« Epistle of June (Luke Vi, 16; Judei). ' 23. "Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love Me he will keep My words; and My Father will love him, and we will come unto him and make our abode with him." Here He again enforces the test of our love to Him, as our love to His word. How can oue be said to love another even in this world if they love not to hear from each other when absent? 24. "He that loveth Me not keepeth not My sayings; and the word which ye hear is not Mine, but the Father's which sent Mts." 25. "These things have 1 spoken unto you. beingyet present with you." Tne R. V. says; "While yet abiding with you?" Soon He would be absent from them, and tbev would no longer talk with Him face to face. How little they knew or ap predated the privilege they were uow en Joying and so soon to lose. 26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will seud in My Name, He shall teach you all things." Here is some light upon the meaning of the words "In My Name." The Hoiy Spirit was to be another Comforter (verse 16), taking the place of Jesus as guide, in stractor, helper, friend, full of power, wis dom, might, and all because He came "In Jesua' Namei" We can l>e said to pray in Jesus'-Name (verses 13, 14), and forth In His Name (Math, xix, 29) only when filled with the Spirit, our aims are His and we are wholly one with Him. Then we can count upou the Spirit to teach us all thihgs that we need to know as we reverently study His wonL ' • "And bring-. all things to your remem brance, Whatsoever I have said unto you." _ As It dawned upon them that He was to leave them, or aa it became a fact that He had'actually gone away, how they would Wish to .remember His words, and what cotofort they wonld then find in this prom-fee of a nmenibrancer. If we first fay up the word of God in onr hearts, we may then .rely upon the Spirit to bring it to mind as we need it either for ourselves or for'others' * " tit". "Peace I leave With yon.
