A GRATEFUL NEGRO.

"I'tiolo Tom" To ltt tho Only
one In History.
Mr. IVnnypni'kor was tho very mush
nnd milk of human kindness. Indeed,
it was feared that he would never row
to manhood so piotw and precocious
was lie. Sunday-school was his delight
nnd Hie works of Mis Kdjjeworth and
Mrs. Stowe his especial joy. Not so his
bad brother, Tomtnv. lieinjr offered
tho veracious history of "Little Frank"
as Sunday reading the child of wrath
remarked: "I don't want nuy more of
thu pious little devils. Gimme suinpin
Ut to read."
As a cloud of mystery hangs over
lommy's subsequent career, it is very
probable that ho was either gored by a
mad bull or drowned while fishing on
Tobias Ponnypackcr meandered
harmlessly through life until lie reach
ed tho age of -10. when a relative died
suddenly and bequeathed him a small
plantation in the south.
Tobias was delighted. He had rend
fo much in the works of his favorite
authors of the virtues of thu faithful
negro, of his shining qualities of sin
cerity and gratitude, that lie longed to
livo among such a simple and kindly
lleforo many weeks lie was established
in his domain. One day as lie walked
along tho public road lie came to a cab
in outside of which two women were
fighting, while a mulatto gentleman
was seated calmly on tho fence and
quite a little crowd was assembled to
watch the fray.
"Oli, shocking! shocking!" cried
good Mr. Pennypackcr, and lie tried to
interpose between the combatants with
such moral axioms as "birds in their
little nests agree." and "dogs delight
to bark and bite." lint tho words of
peace weru lost in tho tumult tho
only result boing that the good Tobias
received sundry stray thumps from tho

placed a coin in the hand of l'rinco
Hupert Veal for this was thu name of
his colored friend.
After this Mr. Pennypacker often
6auutcrod past the liumblo cabin and
engaged Prince Ituport in conversation,
being more- and more delighted witli
his storing worth.
"Bo 'awnes!' " was tho prince's bat
tle-cry "dais what I says. Bo 'awnes,'
if yo lias to die fer it."
"Now, would it not boa capital idea,"
thought Mr. Pennypackor, "to show
the world that virtuo can llourish in
lowly ground? I will write tho history
of liis life and publish it in tho form of
So Mr. Pennypacker began to ques
tion Prince Hupert as to ids past career.
For instance, ho would say: "Did
you not feel, Rupert, tho evil effects of
slavery upon your moral nature?"
Slavery, is it? Oh, mighty bad!
mighty bad, boss!" would tho ingonious
"And did you not think of your lov
ing father aud mother far away in Vir
ginia?" "Dat I did, boss! Thought a mighty
heap 'bout 'em."
Aud out of meager details of aliko
nature, Mr. Pennypacker built up quito
a touching little biography of this ele
vated Christian character.
It struck Mr. Pennypacker that ho
could not do hotter than to ongago Al
faretty as his cook and Prince Rupert
as general factotum, so he built them
a neat little cottage on Iih ground.
Prince Rupert ovcrllowed with ox-pre-sions
of gratitude. He was not
onlv tin very paragon of honesty, but
he was alo obliging and skillful in
the raising of chickens. Tiieso fowls
were the joy of Mr. Pennypacker's
heart, and Ills eyes sparkled with pride
as lie watched his plump "Plymouth
Rocks." or, as Prince Rupert called
them. "Plym ' tie Rock," sauntering
about the yard, lie built them a pala
tial dwelling and surrounded them with

was not unquestionable. Prince Hupert

He leaped out of bed in those "cus
