They advanced southward by two dis- tinct roads. The western army marched down the Marltza river past the outworks or Adrianoplc, wilich they have, apparently been treating hitherto as the Germans treated the Mctz.

Howbeit, the'theme and the oppor- tune time, rather than the composer suggested the thought of this article. The Commonplace things! How'precious they are, yet how prone are we to 'be unapprecia- live. It is not that we are always'ungrateful. Oh .hoi 'Only that are so apt to take such everyday blessings as'qujte a matter of course-to accept them quietly for granted, as a part'of our environment. And It is just possible that at some time or other when pointed- ly reminded that we ought to be glad and. grateful for just these little commonplaces, we are astonished. What isj the matter? Why, It never occurred to us before.In.Just that light. To be thankful for-sunlight and, shadow, :for the breeze that'sweeps the plain, for flowers and 'grass, for health, friendship, the. little child- ren that at times so sadly try our patience; the work that has to' be done and the weariness that follows in its for; these1 Man enough to do to take them as they' come!
