his fathers injunction to hasten, he endeav

neglect and unkindncs manifested toward

fered, the fountain of tears was broken up.
Herbert knew not the cau-e of his mother

and be strove in bis childish way to eon'ole

motlc r siippre-cd her sorrow, and brought
a smile to her face.
When the frugal morning meal was over,
Amy went to return the work to the lady to
whom it belonged, and Herbert went out to
gather dry sticks to replenish the fire. Soon
Henry Lee entered. He was sober, for be
had slept off the fumes of the liquor which
he had drank the preceding evening, but
he was sullen and silent, scarcely raising
his eyes while he partook of a portion of the
bread and milk which bad been reserved
for him. When he had finished his repast,
he arose to leave the house, but bis wile
laid ln r baud gently on his arm and looked
up in bis face.
