The Stranger on tho Sill Between broad fields of wheat and corn Is the lowly home where I was born; The peach tree leans against the wall, Ind the woodbine wanders over all; There is the shaded doorway still, But a stranger's foot has crossed the sill. There is the barn—and, as of yore, I can smell the hay from the open door, And I see the busy swallows throng, And hear the pewee's mournful song; But the stranger comes-oh! painful proofHis sheaves are piled to the heated roof. There is the orchard—the very trees Where my childhood knew long hours of ease, And watched the shadowy moments run Till my life imbibed more shade than sun; The swing from the bough still sweeps the air, But the stranger's children are swinging there. Oh, ye who daily cross the sill, Step lightly, for I love it still; And when you crowd the old barn eaves Then think what countless harvest sheaves Have passed within that scented door To gladden eyes that are no more. Deal kindly with these orchard trees; And when your children crowd their knees Their sweetest fruit they shall impart, As if old memories stirred their heart; To youthful sport still leave the swing, And in sweet reverence hold the spring. The barn, the trees, the brook, the birds, The meadows with their lowing herds, The woodbine on the cottage wallMy heart still lingers with them all. Ye strangers on my native sill, Step lightly, for I love it still.

THE HYMN THAT HELPED MAKE A GOVERNOR
A youth entered Gustavus Adolphus College with the purpose of taking a brief business course.
The singing of "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" by three hundred voices in the chapel of the College so impressed the young man that he determined to continue his studies and get all the College could give him.
That young man is now Governor Eberhart of Minnesota.
After noting the facts, the editor of one of Minnesota's leading secular newspapers writes: "In the song he found the germ that made him Governor in less than twenty years. Four hundred years had not ended the power of the Luther hymn : it was still potent to make men men."
This hymn and two hundred and forty-nine others with inspiring ring and tuneful harmony, make up the
