then I pinned up my white lroek, and
went down to tho rose-garden to pick
tho flowers with the dew on them for the

able old grandfather come hobbling up
our steps, rubbing Iuh hard hauj.i, nud

And so I knew that ho bad forsaken me

remarked easinlly, 'Everything seems

'I'll niai-.e n woman of her,' Mr. T
repeated, I irmly and hopefully.
Tlcy were washed and dressed nud
provided with a supper and beds. Tho
next Morning they went i'do the school
room with the children. Marv waa the
unmo of the little girl whose ch moo for
better things the judge thought, small.
Muring the forenoon tho toucher snid to
Mr. T , iu reference to her.
'I uever saw a child like tha. I have

Mr. T - said afterward, himself,
that her faco was the saddest he had
ever teen - sorrowful beyond expressii.it;
yet she was n very little girl, only five
or sis years old.
After school he called her into Infi of
lice nnd mid, pleasantly:
'Mary, I've lost ni, little pet. 1 us-d
lo have a little girl hero that would
wait ou uie, nnd sit on my kuce, nnd 1
loved her uy much. A kind lady and
geutlemiui l iiui adopted her, und J
should liko for you to take hir place,
and be my pt now. Will yon?'
A gleam of liht flitted over the poor
child's face, nud she begun to uudcr
stot.d him. M-1 gnv-.i her teu cents aud
told her alio might go to the itore near
by and get sonic candy. While sho was
out he took two or thri" newspapers,
tore thorn in pieces, an I sedterod them
about the ro"i. i. When she returue 1 he
'Mary, wii1 you oicnr up my ( Hi 'c a

She went to w-rk wit'i a will. A lit

into the tehooln. e.i after dinner with so
changed a look and boiring that the
tr-aehi r win a- ti.niKhed. The child's
face was absolutely radiant. She went
to her and said
'M-iry, what is it? Wln't inuk:n you
!i k so happy?'
'Oh, I've got some one to lov me,'
the child answered earnestly, as if it
were heaven come down to earth.
That Wiis all tho secret. For want of
love that little one's life had been so
e ld and desolate tha she had lost child
hood's beautiful faith and hope. Hhe
could uot at lirst believe iu the reality
of kindness or j y for her. It was the
certainty thnt some one had loved her
and desired her n Section that lighted

Unit I know pets half an hour for his
luncheon or dinner in the middle of the
day; but ho raanugCB to cat a few bis
cuits during ollice hours, aud spends his
half hour walking up and down one of
tlioouavs smoking. This man walks to
tho city every moruiug from his home, j
the distance being three miles; he also j
walks home every evening; nud he i
Bnioke.i iuec.-'suntly during the walks !
each way. He diues at si o'clock, and I
then smokes without ceasing until bed-
tune. ).! Sunday he smokes all day, j
except during meals; he will uever nt- i
tend n place of won hip, because it
would curtail his smoking. He will i
never go into company w ith biswi ", J
and, indeed, will no' icadily talk to her '
at home, as it disturbs his smoking. In j
nil other respects this man is a good .
husband and a father. Another :io- j
quaintauce of mine, who is n highly in- !
tclhvtual and deeply-reid man, will j
tolerate nothing that may postpone his
smoke. At dinner ho is in n perpetual .
drive to pet done, so as tj begin bis j
pipe; he wants no piidibnr, cheese or I
dessert; taking these would involve loss
of tune, nnd put off the smoking period
a few minutes longer. Ht likewise re
quires no ten or supper, protesting he
is not hungry, nud thnt he does not
wish to be disturbed iu his smoke. An-
I other man that I know is iu a govern
ment otVn'o, nnd when the ufuiiI public
!.nbdiys occur, such ns the queen's
birthday, Ins treat is to lie iu bed all
day nu I smoke. The gentlemnu is mar
ried, and always smokes his last pipe iu i
