But the health of the Home family was good. A visitor to the Home during the month reports that she saw several of the old ladies gathering snow on one of the fine days that followed a snow storm.

It was wanted for the water pitchers. As no response came to our solicitation in the March number for a sewing chair, we again ask that if any one has such an incumbrance, the Home would be glad to accept for one of the rooms. True, there are chairs in unoccupied rooms, but these belong to such rooms and must be kept there as private property whether the room is occupied or vacant. Breakdown of Miss Keller. The reported breakdown of Miss Helen Keller, the deaf and blind girl whose marvelous accomplishments of education has so astonished the world, is not received with surprise.

Through the slow years in which that beautiful spirit has laboriously struggled to the light and by painful progress rent the veil of dormant senses, she has performed feats of effort that might well be calculated to weaken the strongest constitution. The most touching feature of her present collapse is that she surrendered her strength in the devoted labor of helping those afflicted with misfortune similar to her own. Since the completion of her collegiate education, she has been active in attending meetings and in carrying on a general educational work for the blind and deaf. Hers has been one of the most extraordinary examples of spiritual heroism of which the world has known, and that her devotion to her fellow-sufferers should have resulted in the loss of her own health must awaken universally the profoundest sympathy.

If all our lives were one broad glare Of sunlight, clear, unclouded, If all our paths were smooth and fair, By no soft gloom enshrouded If all life's flowers were fully blown, Without the sweet unfolding, And happiness were rudely thrown On hands too weak for holding Should we not miss the twilight hours, The gentle haze and sadness? Should we not long for storms and showers, To break the constant gladness?" each Ecker, Harms, Ward Kinney, I Talbott, Struss, Kuns, Miller, The McPherson Dry Goods Co, Jensen, Houston, each 50c Lexsell, Kern Bros, David Aurell, II Bixby, Joseph Pollock, Mrs A Coons, McMurray, Johnson, each 25c.
