Sum a pleasant-faced woman opWM the
lower dr and told Tim to ait down by the
bjfe hM lire. The kitchen was full of the odor
Kmc and TOO know how that will make you
hnneTj- long before dinner time. Tim, who had
hailno aouptincc hia mother hail last cooked
their dinner, snuffed the air, and remembered
sadly bow (im! hia mother's soup used to taste.
"Mary,'' called a voice that already sounded
familiar "(five the lxiy a bowl of soup. I can't
DOOM down at once, but here are the ihoWj he
cn eltU them after he has eaten. 1'ut plenty
of bread in his soup, Mary."
"Shure, I was just longing to do it," mut
tered the girl, hastening to till a bowl for Tim.
"Ban I" sue said, "draw up to the table and
eat."
Tim ait'Ki hungry to remember his mother's
iimtriictinns as to washing his hands, but he did
imt forgnt Ihiw his head, saying the grace he
had said at every meal since ho lirst began to
apeak: "I thank Thee, dear l.nrd, for this nice
fml; and help us to lie Thy good children, for
Christ's take. '
Mary stood still in astonishment. "That's
the lirst grace in this kitchen,'' she said to her
self, "but I'm bond it shan't lie tho last. I've
letn a forgetful creature."
The soup linithed, Tim polished tho shoes;
mi, Ii in, -e buttoned Units he hail neer handled
before. Just aa ho was giving a hut touch to
them, he heanl some one come in, and saw tho
the lady who hail brought him standing talking
to Mary.
"Thank you; they are very nicely done. But
if yuii get only one customer a day, you'll not

"Ho'sin the barn," said a pleasant looking
girl. "What do you want ?"
"I've a note for him."
"Well, go right over."
Tim delivered his note. Tho farmer read it
and then, without saying a word, went on with
his work. Tim felt rather discouraged, but,
seeing a pair of boots in one corner, set to work
and polished them. ThiB took some time, for
they had never been polished before, I faucy.
Then Tim put up his brushes and Blung his box
on his back ; he had better go back or try
somewhere else. The farmer was just going up
to the loft, but as Tim slung his box, he said ;
"Come here, my boy. You can work ; I see
that. Are you willing to work for a home !"
"Yes, indeed, sir."
"Got any clothes ?"
" Two suits, sir."
"Any money ?"
"One dollar and fifty cents."
"How much time do you expect to have to
fool around ?"
"Can't tell till I try to. do the work."
"The farmer was pleased with the bright,
truthful faco, and said :
"You'll do. Go in the house and tell 'em to
set you to work -chop wood, draw water, do
anything till milking time."
So that was how Tim's boot-blacking ended.
He lives on the farm still, but he is taller than
I am. Mrs. Denny comes out to see her old
friends sometimes, and is always as glad to see
him as any of the rest ; and, next to God, Tim
loves tho lady who let him shine her boots.

An Knglish fashion journal, in reply to a cor

An amusing circumstance occurred on the ex
cursion trip to Kochoster which waa enjoyed
hugely by the spectators. At one of the sta
tions an elderly, portly lady, amongst others
got on tho tram, having with her a full grown
hoy evidently about elevon years of age. The
mouth of tho hoy .howe.1 a full acquaintance
nib tobacco, and other appearances indicated
the precocious oung American. Just prior to
the ap,K,ranee of Flanagan, the affable con
luctor, the old lady spoko up and said, " Come

cuddling down in true baby stylo. The object

An amusing parley ensued, which finally re-

laughter of the crowd.
