THE STAR

`Good heavens, Eliza! That's enough for the present. In the first place, the star would move, and he could not watch it for hours through a crack. In the second place, if a healthy English boy, who has never known the degrading influence of the Sunday school, finds out that there is a hole in the roof above his head, he plugs it up with something to keep the rain out. In the third place, what happened to the boy when he had his little trials and perplexities on a cloudy night? In the fourth place, why should the sister be crippled? It is nothing else than an unprincipled appeal to feminine sentiment.'
`I knew you'd scoff, George. You always do scoff at religion. Thank goodness, Roger is in bed and asleep hours ago.'
`As a matter of fact from the noise immediately above my head, I believe him to be in the process of having a hot bath. But do go on with your account of the sermon.'
'1 'll proceed with pleasure if you promise to take me seriously. By the by, I must remind cook to-morrow about putting these biscuits in the oven before she sends them up. Well, Father Trewhit finished by describing to us the feelings of a man who was gazing at a star millions of miles away, a nameless, flashing pin-prick of eternity, he called it. He described how the man would lose all sense of self, how he would cast aside all his little everyday petty squabblings and jealousies, losing all thoughts of time and space as he sees the fringe of new worlds, new universes; until, shielding his eyes, he would exclaim with the psalmist: What is man?'
There Mrs. Jackson stopped, leaving her quotation unfinished. George was sitting in his chair convulsed with laughter.
She drew herself up, and in her' most frigid manner left the room without speaking.
`Don't slam the door, for pity's sake!' said her husband, and then began to laugh again.
