Samuel was a bright boy, and tin- j to measure it or lay it out. Jerry will
commonly intelligent for one of his ! soon be able to take my place as sur-
nge. Mr. tvintlirop was ti uiorougn
in itbematieian ; he baldly ever came
across a problem he could not solve,
and he desired that his boy should be
like him ; lie considered that the acme
of educational perfection lay in the
power of conquering Euclid; and he
often expressed the opinion that, were
l.iielul living then, lie could "give the
o il o'eomet rieia n ti hard tu -ic. i
scemetl not to lUKler-tai.il that 1
dillereut minds were made with differ
ent capacities, ami what one mind
grasped with case another of equal
power would fail to comprehend.
Hence, because Jerry progressecl rap
idly with Ins mathematical studies,
and could already survey a piece ot 1
land of many tingles, he Imagined that
as Samtutl made no progress in the
same branch, he was idle and careless, j
mill so treated him accordingly. He
never va mildly conversed with hi3
younger sou, with a view to ascertain
I he true bent of his mind ; but he had ;
his own standard of the power of all
minds, and he pertinaciously adhered 1
to it. ""1
There was another thing that Mr. j
Wlnthrop could not see, and that was j
that Samuel was continually pondering
upon such profitable matter as was in- j
teresthtB to him, and that he was !

see, cither, that 11 he wished Ins boy to
become a mathematician, he was pur
suing the very course to prevent such
a result. Instead of endeavoring to
make the study interesting to the child
he was making it OlNjAXiODj.
""'l'lio dinner hour came, and Samuel
had not worked out the sum. lis
RltttcT was angry, and obliged the boy
go without hi, dinner, at the same
time telling him that be was an idle,
Poor Samuel left tiio kitchen for his
own room, and there he sat. and cried.
At length his mind seemed to pas
from the wrnmr he had suffered at the
hand of his father, and his face light-j
ened up. There wa.-t .1 lire in the room ;
below his chamber, so he was not very
cold; and getting up, he went to
closet and from under a lot of oltl
clothes he took forth some long strips 1
ot wood, lie was evidently lasmonuig
some curious affair from tliac pieces of
wood, lie had bits of wire, little
scraps of tbi plate, pieces of twine and
dozens of small wheels that lie had
made himself, and he seemed to lie
working to get the whole together after
some particular foslliou of his own.
Half the afternoon had thus passed
away when his si ,ter entered his cham
ber, she bad her apron gathered up
in tier baud, and after clo-mg the door
softly behind lier she approached the
spot where her brother sat.

make any explanation, ami without

good supply of clothes having been i
provided, and, after kissing his mother i
and sfater, and shaking bauds with his ,

and set off for his new destination. 1
He found Mr. Young all he could j
wish, and went into his limitless with 1
an assiduity that surprised his master. 1
One evening alter Samuel Wmthrep

what the voting workman was up to,
and be not only encouraged him in his
undertaking, but he stood for hall' an
hour anil watched him at his work.
Next day Samuel Winthrop was re
moved from the blacksmith shop to the
Samuel cften visited ids parent. At
the end of two years his father was
not a little surprised when Mr. Young
informed liinrthat Samuel was the
iiio.-t useful hand in his employ.
Time flew fust. Samuel was twenty
one. Jeremiah had been free almost
two years, and was one of the most
accurate and trustworthy surveyors in
Mr. Winthrop looked upon lifa eldest
sou with pride and often expressed a
wisli that hi oilier son should liave
been like him. Samuel liad come
homo to visit Ids parents, and Mr.
Young had come w ith him.
' Mr. Young," said Mr. Winthrop,
after the tea things bad been cleared
away, "tliat fa a Sue factory they liave
just creeled in your town."
" YeW returned Mr. Young,
"there are three of them, ami they
are doing a very heavy business."
I understand they have an exten

good workman, as you say lie is. per

Mr. Young looked at Samuel and
" By the way," continued the old

bear In the papers about those patent

go nheau of anything that was ever

" You must ask your son about
that," said Mr. Young. "That fa
some of Samuel's business."
" EhMVhat! some of Stun .'
The old man st6pied short and
gawd on his son. ttt was bewildered.
It could not Ik that Id son his idle
son was the inventor of the great
power loom that had taken all the
manufacturers by surprise.
" What do you meau?'v be at

"It is simply this, father, that the

conscious pride. " I have Invented It
and taken a putettt right, and I luivo
already la:en offered ton thousand dol

the ciap-trap you crushed with your

" Yes. replied the old man, whose
eyes ware bent to the tloor, and over

studying when you used to statu aud

my loom so much;" said Mrs. Mu

then I laid conceived the Idea which 1
have since carried out."
"And that fa why you could not
understand my mathematical prob

started from his chair and look the
youth by the hand. "Samuel, my son,
forgive me lor the hardness 1 have
used towards you. I have been blind

you. While I have thought you
heedless and careless, you were solv
