He ,it not answer for a moment;
then be said, '1 don't know that 1

But his lip quitered, and a little
tear stole low n his cheek.
"Yea, my child, you have a kind

boy, "'and it comforts me."
"I1 wish Jesus was here to cure

"' Well," said I, "he will open lit

Savior he is. He will show him

SPIIET OF THE AUE.
[Detroit Free Press.]
A member of the sanitarrv police
force camne across a boy the other
day who was wheeling home a
load of oyster cans and bot
ties, and curious to know what usea
the lad could put them to, he made
a direct inquiry.
• "Going to throw them over into
our back yard," replied the boy. "I
took two loads home yesterday."
"But what do you use 'ema for?"
"It's a trick of the family," grin.
aed the lad.
"I'd just as lief tell," exclaimed;
the boy, as he resumed his hold of1
the borrow. "We're going to have
some relashuns come in from the
country. We may not hare mueb
to eat, but if they see these cans and
botties and boxes they'll think that
we've had inters, champagne, figs
and nuts till we've got tird of 'ens,
and are living on bread an' taters
for a healthy chalnge!"
The officer scratched his ear like
a man who had received a new idea.
