She turned away, and left him
standing there, alone. The Octo

glory behind the golden hills; the
long stretch of .meadow land in the
foreground was brown and sere,

looked at it from the window, a fit-

he had indulged, so lately dead.
He thought how, in the long sum

morning, crying out eagerly, 'Now,
papa, I'm ready to go shopping.' .
'Well, daughter, I shall be rendy,
too, when I put on my gloves and

quickly accomplished they passed
into the street. Just outside the
door they met old Sam Hartley,
ragged and shabby, though in Mr.
Smith's pocket was a rive dollar bill
Sam had paid him the day previous
for whisker; and when Rose select

went to a dry goods store; pale,

was passing, bare-footed, although
it was a cold November day, as
they entered the store; there a two
dollar bill that Will's father had
given Smith for rum, was exchanged
for a handsome pair of scarlet and

Next, they selected a fine scarlet
