Cases like tli one I am about- to relate are
much t frequent in our country, and they ar
tnoh, too, at should Ii guardad against by all
who hav an interest in education. Th inoidaut
was brought to mind by baaring a eomplaint
made by the parent of the poor boy, who lia.l
bearr grossly neglnated br th teacher of th vil-
lag school nglemd simply beoausa he was
no..r and oomnarativelv frnndleas
Many years ago, when I was a small boy, I
attended school in the town ot .
Among the bov ther was a boy named Geo.
Henry. Hit father wat a poor, drinking man,
and tlie unfortunate boy hod to suffer in conse
quence. George earn to school habited in rag
ged garments but they venre th best hshad ;
he wat rough and uncouth In hit manners, tur
lie had been brought up in that mr.nnsr; he was
very ignorant, tor ne bad never Bad in opporta
itr ot an aducation.
Season after season poor Oeorirt Htnry ooeu-
led tli tarn seat in tho school r om, il wat
back comer teat, away from th other tobolar
and there he rrrninbei hit primmer. Th
ragged condition M hit g-irb gave a homely east
to ni wnoie appearauce;anu wruu,iH inivuigenrar
thr might hav beon in hit oountcn-ince Vst
beviluuded by the outer covering of the boy. He
seldom plsyed with the other children, fur they
teemed to shun him, but when he did, for a while
join thorn in their sport, . h was au rough that
h wat soon shovel out ot tht ay.
to teacher passed the rssir liot com it in to
tireet, wlul oth-r Isiyt, in hetiar gsrlis, wr
kindly noticed. In th school Henry was coldly
iresuiti. in reaener uegiecr mm, anu men
called bim an "id! blockhead" becnus he did
not learn. Tn hiy received no inoentiv to
tudy, and consequently h vut most of th time
itle, and ulieo. liegat a disposition to whit
awat the time in mischief. I'.r this no was
sbii.ped.and th mor he was whipped the mor
idl and careless he beoaia. II knew that be
was neglected by th teacher simply lieca.
hwos poor and ragged and with aauuen ln.lil
fsraotss, sharpen! attiusea hy feelings of bitter
ness, h plodded on his dark, th tnkwst way.
thus uiattera went for nveral vear.
Moat ,.f th scholars who were nf George ll.'lirv's
age had passed na to higher brachet of etudy.
while the poor fellow snellad out wonls of on
and two ttitahl, and still kept th distant se it
in the corner. His father bad sunk lower in th
pit of inebriation, and th unfortunate boy wa
mor wretched than aver.
Th ksik of clownish indiffcrear which had
marked hi eoantenano wa now giving way to
thtds uf unhappy thought and feeling, and it
was evident that tli gnat turn point ot hi HI
was at hand. II Mood aow upon th step in
