Her uncle had left her there to spend a few weeks at the Vinsomes. She beautifully harmonized with Mrs. Vinsome in everything which pertained to the kingdom of heaven. Her face, ever glorious, seemed angelic when in earnest spiritual conversation, of which she was so fond. Margaret Vinsome was daily more and more taken with her surpassing beauty, and would often, when they were alone together, say to herself, "Whoever gets you, Lilian, may truly call you his angel." John Brandley, the new and youthful minister, became a more constant visitor at Mr. Vinsome's than pastoral duties exactly required. His sermons grew more eloquent and warm. His energies were quickened, and he pleaded with the simplicity and passion of historic Methodism. Lilian admired him exceedingly, but did not know how much she had to do with his success. "Was'nt that a treat, love," said Mrs. Vinsome to Lilian, one Sunday evening, after hearing a discourse by Mr. Brandley upon "The image of the heavenly?" "Yes, he seems to understand and feel what the heavenly image is. Don't you think him a good young man, Aunt?" Lilian liked to address her by the familiar title, although relationship did not warrant it. "He must be good or he would not bring forth the genuine unsensational fruit that mere pulpit cleverness cares little for," replied Mrs. Vinsome, "and there is one rare thing for which I think especially well of him: he seems to take as much pains with what are called the smaller as with the larger services of the sanctuary. A popularity hunter never does that." "...
