A Brand from the Horning,
BY SYLVANPS C01IH, JR.
I sat ln-Dr. Tobie's office. He Unci
been reacting a letti-r when I entered,
mid beyond a sirii)le salutatkm noth
ing fns said until lie had folded the
missive Mid laid it aside. His eyes
were moist as lie fluislied the pernsnl,
and he wiped them with his handker
chief. Then he got up and shook me
warmly by the liand. and alter a lew
passages of friendly Lanier, he said to
" Sit down, old fellow : I've got a
story for yon." And he laid hU hand
tiK)ii t!ie letter which he had been
reading. " I won't bore you. It's a
simple sketch, and the coloring yon
can put in for yourself.''
I seated myself, and the Doctor told
" Twelve years ago I was called to
the Police Court to give my testimony
concerning ihe result of a ptmUmoHem
of tlie body ot a man who hail been
killed in a street brawl. This case
having been disposed of, I took a seat,
within the bar to watch (he wheel of
justice revolve upon other cases. Tliey
came up from the prisoners' dock, one
by one the old. the miUflie-ogeil. and
the young representatives of nil de
gree's of crin.e and degradation, and
1 Wondered, as 1 saw thrin passed oil'
to punishment, how many of the poor
creatures had been absolutely born to
a life of shame ; how many had been
led thereto by surrounding circumstan
ces and influences over which they had
no control ; and how many might have
fallen from a better estate through
criminal choice. At all events, I coiud
not put away the conviction that here
was a field for mlssionfry effort. But
never mind ray moralizing. Only suf
fer me to say, that after 1 had mental
ly fired a shot at what I conceived to
lie misdirected missionary effort, tlie
thought forced itself upon me, 'What
have done in the way of this redemp
tion ?' And I concluded that I had
better wait until I had redeemed my
self from iiwiUUm before I blamed
otliers for misdirection of action.
" I had just Missed this reproof upon
myself when it prisoner stepped up
from the dock who iBratTtlflrly attract
ed my attention. It "was a boy, not
more than fourteen years of age, and
rattier small at that. He was light ol
frame, and, I thought, slightly Under
sized ; but every Inch ot him was fine
ly strung and firmly set. and his form
was beauty itself. 'llisface was (bin
and pftle, ami bis features of a clear
Grecian cut. I saw him first in pro
file, and as his wavy hair, of a sunny
hue, straggling into ringlets here anil
there, s wept back trom tifai full brow.
I thought I had never seen a more
tempting study. When he turned bis
fu'e toward me I saw a pair of large
bine eyes, and found that tlie view
thus obtained of his features was equal
ly Interesting with the other. His
clothes were nigged, imt not dirty, and
there was no dirt itM)ii his hands hot
upon his face. This struck Hie forc
ibly, because most of those who bad
come up from the prison-cell had come
bleared and grimed.
lie answered to tlie name of Dick
l'rintle, and was up for petty larceny:
and the officer who presented him mild
Ibis was the third lime he had been up
for like offending. The .lodge nodded
grimly, for he himself recognized the
lad as one who bad lieforc pcisSed under
his sentence. The boy could not plead
innocence, for he had lieeu caught in
Ihe verv net of nllferhnr : and he ac
knowledged his guilt. The .lodge's I
brow w;is black with judicial thunder; I
but he did not deem it worth while to
vent much of it upon so insignificant
".So! This is the third' time!' he
said. The boy started and trembled,
and I thought he tried to speak ; but
the awful voice of power sounded
again, 'You'll come to the gallows,
sir ' do yon know that ? You are in
corrigible ! Haven't you had enough
of prison life yet ?'
"The boy's trembling ceased, and
be looketl defiant. He stood erect, his
blue eyes flashed, and his finely cut
nostrels were distended.
" By this time I had called to mind
where and when, on a former occasion,
I had seen that same boy. I had been
called to his motlier's death-bed three
years before. I remcinlicred the name
Printle and I rememliered the curly-headed
Isty who had lield her failing
baud. And I remembered that I had
then heard tlie dving womtu's story,
tier husband hail once been captain of
a ship, and accounted a seaman of the
very first class ; but mm had broken
him down, and cast him, a complete
wreck, upon a dark shore. .She had
suffered more ttmu she could b II.
had sunk to t he sorrowful level where
I had found tier and was only too
glad to die. And, dying, she hail left
her boy tlie Inmate of a den of triini-
im!s ; and, in her obliviousness of spir
it consequent iiKn a long suffering
wherein only these children of night
bail lieen her friends, she looked thank
fully tiMin the keeper of the den when
he promised to be a friend to the boy.
"I thought of all this while the
piisoner stood at the bur. nnd before
the sentence had been pronounced I
stepped over and touched the clerk of
the court upon tlie arm. and told him
that I would like to have that boy
placed in niv clmrge lor a month. 'It le
clerk whispered to the judge, and the
judge beckoned to me. I went to hint,
ana he told me that he feared it would
lie of no use. 'The little rascal is ut
terly incorrigible,' said he. 'This is
the third time within the year that he
has been up for stealing.'
" I looked at the little fellow, and
as I marked the finely cut lines of the
handsome face, now so defiantly set, I
thought to myself that if he were suf
feredtogrow up into a manhood of
crime he would give society trouble.
He would play no second part hi the
drama ol life, were it. to be fair or foul.
And I whispered to the judge my
thoughts. He had been a class-male
ot mine in college, and was willing to
please me; and the sentence which, a
few moments before, had waited upon
his lips, was suspended, and the boy
was placed under bonds in the sum of
fifty dollars which bond required that
he should appear again in court at the
expiration of one month. It was not
my purpose to bail iiim out at that
time, and the little fellow seemed
slightly bewildered when tlie officer
sent him hack into the dock ; and be
may have been more bewildered still
when he found himself consigned to
the jail Instead ot being sent to the
" Oil the' following day 1 went down
to the jail, With all order from the
sheriff, nnd was admitted to the boy's
cell. His face brightened when he
saw me. nnd in that instant I saw, as
by inspiration, the latent goodness of
the poor waif. I sat down, and called
him by name, and asked him if lie
" He remembered me very well as
the doctor who had been called to his
'Well,' said I, ! would have helped
yotw mother then bad it been in uy
jiower ; and I have come now to help
yon it you will let me.'
"lie caught my hand, and looked I
up into my face ; and he asked me i
what I meant. "Of course,' said he, !
'I will let you help me.'
" 'But,' said I, 'will you help mcT
"He looked at me again In the Slime
'Will yon help mo to help you?'
"He caught my meaning. 'OP
he cried, 'will you give me a chance ?'
" I told him that was what I had
'"I have never had a chance,' he
said. 'Ever since I can remember I
have been down in the mud and the
dirt, and those that wear fine clothes
have shunned me; the officers have
kicked me; and only thieves and pick- j
lockets have been good to me. O, tl .
I could only have a chance?"
" 'You have been punished fordoing
wrong?' I queried.
" 'Yes sir.' lie said. '1 was sent to
" 'Hut it didn't seem to do you any
"How could it?' he asked, with
utter simplicity. '1 was treated like a
little Wretch while i was there, and
when I came out I was kicked back
Into tlie old path. What chnnoo was
there for me to be better. Give me a
chalice, and see.'
After talking with the boy a while,
and satisfying myself that his very
soul yearned for a better life, 1 told
him to make himself comfortable and
contented where he was until he saw
me again. I made him understand
that if he came out he must come upon
my responsibility, and that I only
wanted time to find a suitable starting
point for him hi the new sphere.
There was no wild burst of thanks,
no gushing of sentiment or promise.
He took both my hands, and looked
up with a solemn, earnest look, and
with a tear starting from either eye,
"Give me a chance. Doctor a
Chance where I can hold my own with
people and If I fail you 1 will never
ask help again."
"I promised that I would try, and
(hen I left him.
I bad a dear friend living away in
the country a true Christian man,
who had a line Christian wife a
couple who preached their Christianity
by IMng it, and who prayed with
strong hands and tender hearts. I
wi-ote to my friend, and told him the
whole story, and lie wrote back for me
to send the boy to him. Then I wont
down to the jail, and when Dick look
ed up into my face, ho clasped his
hands over his eyes and broke out into
sobbingancl weeping. My first thought
was to comfort him with assurance of
coming good ; but he stopped me.
" I Know ! I know !' he cried, 'I see
it in your face. I saw you smile, and
I knew you had come to help me. 0 .'
I never," never saw that smile before.1
" On that day I took Dick l'rintle
from the jail, and carried him to my
own house, where I gave him new
clol lies, and wliere my wife and daugh
ters were kind to him. On the day
following, as I needed recreation, I
went wiili him into the country, and
introduced him to my friend, where ho
was at once taken to a comfortable
home, and to tender, loving hearts.
"That was twelve years ago. To
day tho waif which I rescued from the
maelstrom of vice the brand which
I plucked from the burning is an or
nament to the society hi which he
moves, and that society is of the very
liesf. He says it was from reverence
of me that the idea came to him of
being a physician ; but no matter
whence came the thought, the medical
profession gained a grand accession
when he received his diploma, and
suffering humanity gained a true and
able helper. He found a wife in the
daughter of the matt to whose wire l
consigned him; and he has found
friends everywhere, in this letter ho
tells me that a second child has heeu
born to him, the first was a girl,
this is a boy. nnd he asks me if he
may give it my name ; and asks furth
er, "that I will "bring him my answer
" 'Come.' he writes, 'and take k
peep into the heaven we owe to yon.
Come anil make our heaven brighter
still by the presence of one whom we
love "so deeply and so devotedly
Come' " But never mind the rest. It was
only meant for my eye.
"And von will go? said L
" Yes." said thedoctor. "It always
does me good to see that man. My
heart warms beneath his cheerful smile,
and my faith in humanity gains new
strength from the grandeur of his later
A Ileiunrknlilc Masonic Incident.
The first Masonic funeral that ever
occurred hi California took place In the
year i$4B, and was performed over the
body of a brother found In the bay of
An account of the ceremony state
that on the body ol the deceased was
found a silver mark of a Mason, upon
which was engraved the initials of his
name. A little further Investigation,
revealed to the boholderthe most singu
lar exhibition of Masonic emblems
that was ever drawn by the Ingenuity
ol man upon the human skin. There
is nothing in the traditions of Free
masonry equal to it. Beautifully dot
ted on his left arm. in red nnd blue
ink. which lime could not efface, ap
peared all the emblems of an entered
apprenticeship. There was tlie Holy
Binle. the square and compass, the
twenty-four inch gauge and common
gavel. There was also the Masonie
livemetit, representing the ground
floor of King Soloman's Temple, the
indented lassel w hich surrounds it and
the blazing star in the cent re. On his
right arm and artistically executed in
the same indellible liquid, were the
emblems pertaining to tlie fellow craft
degree, viz., ihe square, the level and
the plumb. There were also live or
ders of architecture Ihe Tuscan,
Doric, Ionic, Corinthian and Compos
ite. In removing the garments from his
body the trowel presented itself with
all the other tools of operative mnsson
ary. Over his heart was ihe pot of
incense, till the Other parts of bis
body were the beehive, the "Book of
Constitutions '' guarded by the Tyler'
sword, the sword (Hjiutiiig to .a naked
heart ; the All-seeing eye, the anchor
and ark, the hour-glass, the cytlw tlie
42d problem of Kuclid, the Sun, Moon,
Stars and Comet, the three steps em
blematic ot youth, manhood and age.
Admirably executed was the weeping
virgin, reclining upon tl broken column
upon which lay ihe " Book of Con
stitutions.'' In her left hand she held
the pot. of incense the Masonic emblem
of Immortality of the soul. Imme
diati ly beneath her stood winged Time,
with his scythe by his side, which cut
tlie brittle thread of life, and Ihe hour
glass at his feet, which is ever remind
ing us that our lives are witliering
away. The withered and attenuated
lingers of the Destroyer were placed
among tlie long nnd gracefully flowing
ringlets of the disconsolate "mourner.
Thus were the stirring emblems of
mortality beautifully bicuuud in one
pictorial representation. It was a
spectacle such as Masons never saw
before, and in all probability such as
the fraternity will never witness again.
The brother's name was never known.
