somewhere on the Pa cific the doctor had and mother had caught her breath for there was more to be thought of than the sep aration which was bad enough dont see It can be manag ed Bald Phil when he was alone with her It must be she sold recalling last winter with the weeks of grippe and pneumonia There much money to go on Bui there la enough for on Invest ment In your health What Is the trouble asked Uncle Mark noticing the grave which came near lo listen Dr Brand has been talking non sense to mother said Phil Telling her I must go to California As If couldnt brace up and do very wall here Uncle Mark looked the hoys frame Unequal he knew lo the demands Upon it of the spirit within remembered that there had consumption In the family only a little way back Ill send him he said Undo Mark it would he loo much Oh I dont mean that It should be so very much Ill put him and keep him at a good place till you are able to swing yourEelf And you can pay up when you are able In four months certainly Phil eagerly I ought to he strong enough to come home The winter will be nearly over then iPour months be It then A little later Phil Graham rejoicing In every breath of the air found himself pleasantly located in what was a half sanitarium half hoarding house A few Invalids there some old people accompanied by younger ones among whom Phil found agreeable companionship AH that he bad ever heard of the land of the palm and orange ho lo more than realize as wisely setting aside everything except what might tend to the recovery of his health he gave himself up to the delights which with least expense came within his reach He continually sought the beneficent fresh air with Its blessed burden of glowing sunshine read a Utile Joined heartily In all sports of the young people making himself liked by young and old through his genial good fellowship and readiness to kind and helpful to those about him All too soon the months flew by and Phil was obliged to acknowledge lo himself that although his health was much Improved he could by no means yet call himself strong You ought not to think of going back yet said the doctor with whom he had made friends II would be perilous for you to encounter all the early springtime changes of the weath er in the east Phil thought that this was correct but what was he to do Apply to his mother Never Apply to his uncle Never again He tried to obtain light work in the nearby town but found that filled by those who were like himself striving for a foothold for the sake of the climate Well he said to himself as he one day went in to dinner we hear much about Gods free air but Just here it seems not free to me There was some little friction as contrasted with the usual smooth run ning of things at the table Mistakes were made and guests waited long to be served At length the head of the house came apologized for the explaining that two of his waiters had left suddenly and he had yet been able to fill their places As Phil waited with the a sudden thought came to him I could do that He applied for a place and obtained it Now I wonder what my friends here Ihink or say he thought lo as with his white linen apron 00 the morning he took his place In the diningroom Well dont care much its so good lo be where 1 can write to mother and Uncle Mark that Im my living and a more that Im willing to stand a little There snubbing not much but Phil was forced to own to himself thai what there was could not be called pleasant older people and some of the younger ones met his service a with a matter of course friendliness a few others showed plainly that being now a waiter ho no longer regard ed as of Iheuj Mr Frank a young fellow there with his uncle stared haughtily at the new waller as If Indignant at his having ever presumed to consider himself his equal nd offered hire a Up blood rushed to face bo was turning angrily away when swift thought ho cheek ed Its a pari of it he said to him- as he bowed and look the gfattdly Some of the friendly ones clapped their hands casting Indignant glances Prank Well well hows this Mr an elderly gentleman who or- waya read at table and delayed bo long as to tire out the waiters looked up kindly Inquiry as Phil brought hie- coffee after diners were This mean he added touching white apron A wager or something of that kind suppose boys are always up to capers Nothing of that kind at all Bald Phil I want to slay out la this country I cant let my relatives support me and thio is all I can get to do Thats it hey Well I hope make a good waller Bo sure you always brio g my plates hot As there were other things with the duties of a waiter Phil found It easy to keep much out of the way of those with whom ho hod lately consorted was his prefer ence although there were many of them who felt only admiration for a young fellow who would do came In his way rather than bo a burden on one Garde appeared to take to IhC new waiter to Judge by a good deal of friendly obitflog and domineering on his part at the end of a month of bo sought an interview with him I think are pretty capable as a waiter now and might graduate te began dont hub chance for Phil I am wanting some one to do fl little overseeing on a ranch you like to try It Mr Garde You could only expect one to that Phil the beam In his eyes emphasizing his delight in the propor tion A few months of outdoor life might fit you for say a place in my And as Phil wailed lo hear more he went on I like kind that will do what thoy can when hey cant do what they would Imnk I Bank Whats

three something lo do to love and something to hope for Ami the first require ment to do that Is worth while Sometimes little children are Into cheerfulness by being given tasks that have no meaning but as soon as they discover they are working kill lime they lose interest in their occupation Work perhaps the greatest single factor In happiness but It must be congenial work and worthy work We cannot do thing Just for the sake of keeping busy and retain our selfrespect Something to love Is as to the life of the soul as food and drink arejto the body Prisonerd shut away from the society of their fellow beings have made pets of mice and spiders When you a person who loves nobody you have discovered a wretched human being A great deal of sympathy Is wasted people who love but to pour a weallhKaffectlon on an unworthy object is not nearly as sad a fate as to love no one We must have to love In order to be happy but Is possible when the object of affection la any thing but The third of the trio la to hope for Satisfied desire would be It frequently astonishes us thai the who have are so often dissatisfied i unhappy but this Is In perfect har mony with the law of The nearer we come to hating desires the less there is to hope for Aud bo the very may defeat itself Something to do something lo tore something lo lype for ltd a not too much for any of us 10 And yet Is three Is
