DunStrtciM^iiaCo., The Type-written Letter* When a man has battled with poveity all his life, fearing it as he fought it, feeling for the skinny throat to throttle it, and yet dreading all the while the coming of the time when it would gain the mastery and throttle him—when such a man is told that he is rich it might be imagined that he would receive the announcement with hilarity. When Richard Denham realised that he was wealthy he became even more sobered than usual, and djrew a long breath as if he bad been running a race and had won it. The man who brought him the news had no idea he had told Denham anything novel. He merely happened to say: "You are a rich man, Mr. Denham, and will never miss it." Denham bad never before been called a rich man, and up to that moment he had not thought of himself as wealthy. He wrote out tlje cbecji asked of him, and his visitor departed gratefully, leaving the merchant with something to ponder over. He was as surprised at the suddenness of the thing as if some one had left him a legacy. Yet the money was all of his own accumulation, but his struggle had been so long, and he had been so hopeless about it, that from mere habit he exerted all his energies long after the enemy was overcome—just as the troops at New Orleans fought a fierce battle, not knowing the war was over. He had sprung from such a hopelessly poor family. Poverty had been their inheritance from generation to generation. It was the in-in the Denham family. All had accepted their lot with uncomplaining resignation, until Richard resolved he would at least have a fight for it. And now the fight had been won. Denham sat in his office staring at the dingy wall paper so long that Rogers, the chief clerk, put his head in and said in a deferential voice: 'Anything more to-night, Mr. Denham?" Denham started as if that question in that tone had not been asked him every night for years. "What's that, what's that?" he cried. Rogers was astonished, but too well trained to show it. "Anything more to-night, Mr. Denham?" "Ah, quite so. No, Rogers, thank you; nothing more." "Good-night, Mr. Denham." - "Eh? Oh, yes. Good-night, Rogers; good-night." When Mr. Denham left the office and went out into the street everything had an unusual appearance to him. He walked along, unheeding the direction. He looked at the fine residences and realised that he might have a fine residence if he wanted it. He saw handsome carriages; he too might set up an equipage. The satisfaction these thoughts produced was brief. Of what use wouid a fine house or handsome carriage be to him! He knew no one to invite to the house or to ride with him in the carriage. He began to realize how utterly alone he was in the world. He had no friends, no acquaintances even. The running dog with its nose to the ground sees nothing of the surrounding scenery. He knew men in a business way, of course, and doubtless each of them had a home in the suburbs somewhere, but he could not take a business man by the shoulders and say to him, "Invite me to your house; I am lonesome, want to know people." If he got such an invitation he would not know what to do with himself. He was familiar with the counting-room and its language, but the drawing-room was an unexplored country to him, where an unknown tongue was spoken. On the road to wealth he had missed something, and it was now too late to go back for it. Only the day before h$, had heard one of the clerks, who did notjfenow that he was within earshot, allude tpjblm as "the old man." He felt as yoiifdg as he ever did, but the phrase so .lightly spoken made him catch his breath. "• . £fp AS he was now walking through the park and away from th^ busy streets he took off his hat and rati his fingers throcigh his. grizzled hair, looking at his3 hand when he had dose so as if the gray, like Wet paint, had cbme off. He thought of a girl he knew once, who perhaps would have married hlui'if he had asked her, a&* he was tempted to do. But that had always been a ifiistake oif the Ddnhams. They had ail married young except himself, and: so sunk deeper into the mire of pdiVerty, pressed down by a rapidly increasing progeny. The girl had married a baker, he remembered, tea; that was a long time ago. bThe clerk was not far from wrong wtfen be called biA.an old tabu. Suddenly another girt rosd bfeforte his mental vision—a modern girl—very he was on speaking terms, and he Sfaew her merely because her light and np? fiDgers played the business sonata o^One note upon his office typewriter. Jjfiss Gale was pretty—all typewriter gicl's&re and it was generally understood iathe office that she belonged to a good family who had come down in the world. |Mer somewhat independent air deepened jliis conviction and kept the clerks at a distance. She was a sensible girl, whq)re-alized that the typewriter paid better the piano, and accordingly turned the|fex-perience of her white fingers to the former instrument. Richard Denham sat upon & park bench. "Why not??|ji asked himself. There was no re|| against it, except that be had nott^i courage. Nevertheless, he formed &•$ perate resolution. ^ Next day business went on as up Letters were answered, and the time*! rived when Miss Gale came in to see had any further commands that Denham hesitated. He felt vaguely a business o(llce was not the proper pj for a proposal, yet he knew he woui at a disadvantage anywhere else. I first place, he had no plausible excu calling upon the yoqng woman at hi and, in the second place, be knew; ii once got there he would be strii dumb. It must either be at his offi'cj nowhere. a moment, Miss Gaie,| "I wanted to cpi matter—about a bus! for Gale, interim I think X should have a"parl "Sit down said at last; you about a matter." . Miss Gale seated herself and autotiflp cally placed on her knee the shofthnd writing pad ready to take down tbeWn-structjons. She looked at him e$pect||jt-ly. Denham, in an embarrassed mani ran his fingers through his hair. "I am thinking," he began, "of 'ta: a partner. The business is very pro ing now. In fact it has been for Sj time." "Yes?" said Miss tively. "Yes. It is about that I want to speak to y *'Don't you think you had better suit with Mr. Rogers? He knows; i about business than I. But perhaps Mr. Rogers who is to be the partner?'* "No, it is not Rogters. Rogers is a g man. But—it is not Rogers.

"I don't waht advice exactly. made up my .mind to take a partne: partners Denhammopped his had imagined. "Is it then, a question of the capital the partner is to bring in?" asked Miss Gale, anxious to help him. "No, no. I don't wish any capital. I have enough for both. And the business is very prosperous, Miss Gale—and—has been." ' The young woman raised her eyebrows in surprise. "You surely don't intend to share the profits with a partner who briugs no capital into the business?" "Yes—yes I do. You see, as I said, I have no need for more capital." "Oh, if that is the case, I thiok you should consult Mr. Rogers before you commit yourself." "But Rogers wouldn't understand." 'Tin afraid I don't understand either. Jt seeins to me a foolish thiug to do—that is, if you want my advice." "Oh, yes, I want it. But it isn't as foolish as you think. I should have bad a partner long ago. That is where I made the mistake. I've made up my mind on that." "Then I don't see that I can be of any use—if your mind is already made up." "Oh, you can. I'm a little afraid my offer may not be accepted." "It is sure to be, if the man has any sense. No fear of such an offer being refused. Offers like that are not to be had every day. It will be accepted." "Do you really think so, Miss Gale? I am glad that is your opinion. Now what I wanted to consult you about is the form of the offer. I would like to put it— well—delicately, you know, so that it would not be refbsed or give offense." "I see. You want me to write a letter to him?" ' "Exactly, exactly!" cried Denham, with some relief. He had not thought of sending a letter before. Now he wondered why he had not thought of it. It was so evidently the best way out of a situation that was extremely disconcerting; "Have you spoken to him about it?'.' "What him? What him? "To your future partner, about the proposal?" "No, no! Oh, no! That is, I have spoken to nobody but you;" "And you are determined not to speak to Mr. Rogers before you write." '.'Certainly not. It's none of Rogers's business." "Oh, very well," said Miss Gale,shortly, bending over her writing pad. It was evident that her opinion of Den-ham's wisdom was -steadily lowering. Suddenly she looked up.; U "How much shall 'X say the annual profits are? - Or do you'want that mentioned?" "I—I don't thlfik X woiild'mention that, fcou see, X don't wish this arratigetaent to be carried but on a monetary basisf-not altogether." "On what basis then?" s *»Well—i can hardly sajtfr%n 'iptt-i tonal basis, perhaps.

' "Certainly. , Friendly, perhaps more than that."f " "J >kedfp atfhirfmi "Vfhf nol i note inv future partner to call upon you here, or anywhere else that would be convenient, and then discuss the matter?" Denham looked frightened. "I thought of that, but it wouldn't do. No; it wouldn't do.- I would much rather settle everything by correspondence." "I am afraid I shall not be able to compose a letter that will suit you. There seem to be so many difficulties. It is very unusual." "That is true, and that is why I knew no one but you could help me, Miss Gale. If it pleases you it will please me." Miss Gale shook her head, but after, a few moments she said : "How will this do?" "Dear sir—" "Wait a moment," cried Mr. Denham; "that seems rather a formal opening, doesn't it? How would it read if you put it 'Dear friend?'" "If you wish it so." She crossed out the "Sir" and substituted the word suggested. Then she read the letter : "Dear Friend: I have for some time past been desirous of taking a partner aud would be glad if you would consider the question and consent to join me in this business. The business is and has been for several years very prosperous, and as I shall require no capital from you I think you will Hod my offer a very advantageous one. I will—" "I—I don't think I would put it quite that way," said Denham, with some hesitation. "It reads as if I was offering everything and that tb mj partner—well, you see what I mean." ^ "It's the truth," said Miss Gale, defiantly. "Better put it on the friendly basis that you suggested a moment ago." "I didn't suggest anything, Mr. Denham. Perhaps it would be better if you would dictate the letter exactly as you want it. I knew I could not write one that would please you." "It does please me, but I'm thinking of my future partner. You are doing first rate, better than I could do. But just put it on the friendly basis." A moment later she read; " * * * join me in this business. I make you an offer entirely from a friendly and not from a financial standpoint, hoping that you like me well enough to be associated with me." "Anything else, Mr. Denham?" "No. I think that covers the whole ground. It will look rather short typewritten, won't it? Perhaps you might add something to show that I shall be exceedingly disappointed if my offer is not accepted." 'No fear," said Miss Gale; "I'll add that, though. " 'Yours truly,' or 'Yours "You might end it 'Your Friend.' " The rapid click of the typewriter was heard for a few moments in the next room, and then Miss Gale came out with the completed letter in her hand. Shall I have the boy copy it?" she asked. •'Oh, bless you, no!" answered Mr. Denham with evident trepidation. The young woman said to herself, "He doesn't want Mr. Rogers to know, and no wonder. It's a most unbusinesslike proposal." Then she said aloud, "shall you want me again to-day?" "No, Miss Gale, and thank you very much." Next day Miss Gale came into Mr. Den-ham's office with a smile on her face. "You made a funny mistake last night, Mr. Denham," she said, as she took off her wraps. "Did I?" he asked in alarm. "Yes. You sent that letter to my address. I got it this morning. I opened it for I thought it was for me, and that perhaps you did not need me to-day. But I saw at once that you put It in the wrong envelope. Did you want me to-day?" It was on his tongue to say, "I want you every day," but he merely held out his hand for the letter, and looked at it as if he could not account for its having gone astray. The next day Miss Gale was late and she looked frightened. It was evident that Denham was losing bis mind. She put the letter down before him and said: You addressed that to me a second time, Mr. Denham." There was a look of haggard anxiety about Mr. Denham that gave color to her suspicions. He felt that it was now or never. 'Then why don't you answer it, Miss Gale?" he said gruffly. She backed away from him. "Answer it," she repeated faintly. "Certainly. If 1 got a letter twice I would answer it." "What do yon mean?" she cried, with her hand on the doorknob. . ^ "Exactly what the letter says. ' I want you for my partner. I want to marry you and—financial considerations be " Oh!" cried Miss Gale, with a long-drawn, quivering sigh. She was doubtless shocked at the word be had used, and fled to her type-writing room, closing the door behind her. Richard Denham paced up and down the floor for a few minutes, then rapped lightly at her door, but there vv&s no response. He put on his hat and Went out into the street. After a long and aimless walk he found himself agaiu at his place of business. When he went in Rogers said to him: "Miss Gale has left, sir. "Has she?"

SABBATH KEEPING. LESSON X, FIRST QLIAHTER, INTERNATIONAL SER1LS, MARCH 5. Text of the I.csson, Nell, xiil, 16-23—Memory Verses, 17, 18—Golden Text, Ex. xx, 8—Commentary by the Itev. 1). M. Stearns. This chapter gives an account of the discipline of Nehemiali in separating from Israel the mixed multitude, and in cleansing Israel from all strangers with whom they had become entangled by marriage (verses 3, 30). It tells also of the discipline in reference to Sabbath desecration, which is our special lesson for the day; but before taking this up consider the dangers of being entangled and hindered by a mixed multitude. When Israel left Egypt a company of that kind went with them, and caused them much trouble (Ex. xii, 38; Num. xi, 4). Much trouble in the church today arises from the people who are half and half—the worldly church members who are neither one thing nor the other. If any think that the restoration under Zerubbahe} and the reformation of Ezra and Nehemiah fulfilled the prophecies concerning restoration, let them compare Isa. xiv, 1-3, withNeh. ix, 36, 37. If any think that we are now in the millennial age, or that the church with her present zeal will bring that age, let them be honest enough to believe what is written, and they will surely see that the Lord Himself must come for Israel's restoration and to introduce the millennial age (Ps. cii, 16; Acts iii, 19-21). 15. "In those day saw I in Judah some treading wine presses, on the Sabbath." Then he enumerates their other deeds of Sabbath breaking and says that he testified against them. The Sabbath was instituted in Eden before ever sin entered this world, and when God wrote with His finger the Ten Commandments on two tablets of stone He said, "Remember the Sabbath day." That man should give unto God one-seventh of his time is a law from the beginning and of perpetual obligation. 16. "There dwelt men of Tyre also, who sold on the.Sabbath unto the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem." God gives His laws to His children because they are His children. He gave no laws to Israel until He had redeemed them from Egypt. No man can be saved by the deeds of the law, but only by the grace of God, but being saved through Jesus Christ, who is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth, it is then, and only then, that the righteousness of the law can be fulfilled in us who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit (Rom. iii, 20, 24; x, 4; viii, 4). Those who know not God know no Sabbath, but the people of Judah should have shown the men of Tyre that they kept holy the Sabbath because of their God. There can be no trade with no buyers, and unless the people of Jerusalem had bought the men of Tyre had not sold. 17. "Then I contended with the nobles of Judah and said unto them, What evil thing is this that ye do and profane the Sabbath day?" Inverse 11 we redd that He contended with them because they had forsaken the house of God. The house of God was Israel's center, and the laws of God. their gspeciaL4<diglxW.f. Israelites indeed; but they were prone to forsake His house and despise His word (II Chron. xxxvi, 16), and for this they went to Babylon. Now that they have returned from captivity and left their idols their hearts still wander from God and His laws. And sa it was long after, in the days of Malachi, when they robbed God in tithes and offerings and said that it was vain to serve God (Mai. iii, 8,14). 18. "Did not our fathers thus? Yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the Sabbath." Although judgment had overtaken their fathers, yet they continue in the same sins, for not until the Ethiopian can change his skin and the leopard his spots can those do good who are accustomed to do evil (Jer. xiii, 23). "An empty man will get understanding when a wild ass' colt is born a man" (Job xi, 12, R. V., margin). Nothing will make man what he ought to be, but a new heart, a birth from above, and this is a new creation accomplished by the word and the spirit of God. It is the gift of God (Ezek. xxxvi, 26), and nothing can deprive one of it but refusal to receive. 19. "And some of rny servants set I at the gates, that there should be no burden brought in on the Sabbath day." There is such a thing as compelling law breakers to be obedient, and if our city rulers had the spirit of Nehemiah there would not be the Sabbath desecration which is increasingly and alarmingly prevalent in all our cities. God will hold our rulers responsible for all that they can prevent of evil and do not. But to be personal, there are such commands as these for believers. "Let us lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us." "Let us cleanse ourselves from all iilthiness of the flesh and spirit." "Put off the old man, with his deeds" (Heb. xii, 1; II Cor. vii, 1; Col. iii, 9). And these we are bound to obey if we would know in our daily life anything of the meaning of true Sabbath rest. 20. "So the merchants and sellers of all kind of ware lodged without Jerusalem once or twice." The perseverance of the doers of evil ought to put to shame the followers of Jesus. Those who desire to do away with the Sabbath are ofttimes more united and persevering than those who bear the name of Jesus and ought to stand for His holy day. Oh, to be filled with the Spirit of God and have at heart the interests of His kingdom! 21. "From that time forth came they no more on the Sabbath." He testified against them and threatened to lay hands on them; then they saw that he meant it, and desisted. We live in the Nineteenth century, in the most advanced period of the world's history, but where are the Nehemiabs, and the Daniels, and the men who have at heart above all things the honor and glory of God ? To come again to the topic of a little while ago—the Sabbath is the soul of a believer—we will not know it until we stand as decidedly against every besetting sin and every phase of the self life as did Nehemiah against these Sabbath breakers. 22. "Remember me, O my God, concerning this also, and spare me according to the greatness of Thy mercy." The proper men were set apart to see that the Sabbath should be sanctified, and they were men ceremonially clean. We must be clean in heart and life if we'would be of use to our Lord against evil and evildoers.. As to keeping His holy day, be sure that our own ways or pleasure or words are not in order on that day, but the whole day is for Him and Him only (Isa.: lviii, 18,14). See hoW Nehemiah, after all his efforts in the service of God, takes refuge in: the mercy of God. By grace are we saved, in grace we stand, and it is grace that shall be brought unto us at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Salvation from beginning to end is all of grace, but for our works we shall be rewawled if done unto Etim (Eph. ii, 8,10; ltom, iv, 5; xiv, 10; I Cor. iii, 11-151,.. .

So does the bright, joyous, sunny nature of a woman irresistibly attract all to her light-hearted, merry and buoyant spirits. Such a nature makes glad the heart; it makes happy the time. For a man, all the anxiety of busiuess, the weight of care, the gloom and depression of spirits are dispersed as clouds oy the sun before the bright smile of a joyous, happy wife. And it follows no less surely that a cross woman, one never pleased, always faultfinding, discontented and unhappy, will repel all who approach her, and make those who should love her shrink from ner society. Now, the first requisite of good nature is good health. No one out of health can have bounding spirits and feel particularly good natured. If a woman feels nervous, weak, tired, languid,lifeless and miserable,experiences i faintness, sense of fulness after eating, aas irregular appetite,constipated bowels, frequent headaches, wakeful or disturbed tnd unrefreshiug sleep, weak back, back-iche, dragging down pains, irregularities, female weakuess, any or all of these, it is mpossible for ber to be light-hearted nd happy. And in the spring these feelings are /ery prevalent because of the torpid con-lition of the system after the winter. She must be cured first, and, with returu-ng health, her old-time spirits will come •ack. If women will follow closely the advice • nd example of our bright and attractive correspondent. Mrs. Elmer Craig of Le toy, ill., they can easily attain both aealth and good spirits. V MRS. ELMER CRAIG. " I was stricken with nervous disease," writes Mrs. Craig, " which affected my heart, head and stomach. I doctored with physicians of our town, but got no relief from the terrible sick headaches, pains in the heart and stomach until I used Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy. Before I used this wonderful medicine the nerves in my eyes were so affected that I feared I would lose my sight. [ would get so nervous and weak I could aot walk across the room without terri ble palpitation of the heart. I had nol taken one bottle of Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy, before my head tnd eyes were cleared of their dull aching, •ind I am growing stronger every day. I cannot do half justice in the praise of this medicine." This wonderful remedy is the greatest boon to women ever discovered, and by its use you can be restored to sound, vigorous and healthy womanhood. By all means use it now, in the spring, for every-oody needs a spring medicine at this season of the year. This is the best of all spring medicines and is recommended as such by the doctors, to invigorate the blood, strengthen the nerves and start up the natural action of all the organs. You can procure it at all the druggists, for $1, and it is purely vegetable and harmless. Indeed, it is the prescription of the great specialist in chronic diseases, Dr. Greene, of 35 West 14th street, New York, who gives consultation free, personally or by letter. Use it and it will bring back strength to your nerves, freshness to your complexion, brightness to your eyes, the bloom of health to your cheeks, elas- »icity and spring to your step, and that happiness and enjoyment of life which you have missed so long.
