THE MISER'S DSATU-BED
T AST CKUI riTOTil.
' The physician sees many strange death-bed
scenes, which render him, to a certain ex
tent, callous to those sights which would ap
pal the stoutest heart, but still, m the course
of a long practice, even he must encounter
some death-bed scenes, the recollections of
- which will cling to him and which he may
be years in shaking from his imagination.
Such was that which I am about to describe.
For ten or twelve years, a bent and misera
blc old man had been in the habit of clinging
each morning to my area rails, to beg of my
servants broken victuals. His appearance
was so haggard, and his tone and manner be
spoke such a depth of misery, that I gave or
ders never to refuse him anything that had
come from the table; to that, at last, he grew
into a regular pensioner upon us, and we used
to expect him as regularly every morning as
ine name oi tne old mendicant we never
knew, nor where he resided. In fact, he sel-
dom spoke a word, to my servants; but he
would come, in the heat of summer, when the
warm, genial sunshine lit even tne worn flag
stones into beauty, and cling to the iron rails,
looking the only miserable, or at least the
most miserable, object in creation. In the
depth of winter, too, when the bleak north
east wind blew fiercely and the blinding snow
drifted through the air, he would come, and,
still clinging to the rails, while his rags nut
tered around him, wait for his daily dole.
This had gone on so long, that one morn
ing, when he did not come, 1 felt quite uneasy,
and there was a general inquiry through the
house as to whether any one had seen the old
man. The next morning passed away, and
still he came not. I began to think he must
be ill or dead, and, wondering at the usual
hour for another week, we began to forget the
old beggar who had visited us so long. But
one morning, however, he was brought to my
recoHection again, somewhat singularly.
1 was told that a young girl was waiting in
the hall to see me, and going out to see her,
she told me that a Mr. Temple wanted me
as soon as I could go to him.
' " Where does he reside V I said.
She named a low, wretched street in Soho,
and wondering at the address, I said
-Who is Mr. Temple V
I don t know," said the girl. "He lodges
with my mother, sir."
"You are quite sure he sent for me V
"Yes, sir. We did not know his name un
til this morning, and he's lived with us since
I was born.'
"Indeed ! that's odd enough. Is he very
" Oh, very ; he's a groaning so."
"Well, run back, and tell him I'll call as
early as. I can in the course of the morning."
The girl departed, and about half past elev
en I found myself sufficiently disengaged to
call upon my new patient in street, So
ho. The house was miserable and dirty in
the extreme, and upon asking for Mr. Tem
ple a slip-shod grinning-looking woman
screamed up the kitchen stairs
- " It's three pair back!'
"The what r I said.
"The three pair back, to be sure; re
replied the woman, just showing her head on
a level with the passage.
" Can't you show me his room T said I.
" Who are you, I wonder V 3C reamed the
woman. " Hoity-toity ! Show you up. In
deed ! Perhaps you'd like a mould candle,
Positively declining the candle, I ascended
the staircase, surmising that the three pair
back must be up three flights of stairs, and
a back room somewhere.
When I arrived at the landing place at the
very topmost story of the house, I heard a low
moaning sound proceeding from a room to my
left, and pushing open a low black door, I en
tered one of the most miserable rooms that I
had ever seen.
Furniture it had none. A cracked water
jug was upon the floor, and by its side an
earthenware saucer, such as are used for gar
den pots. In one corner lay what at first ap
peared to be a mass of old rags, but the groans
that proceeded from amongst them told me
that a human being was there.
"Has he come has he come?" cried a thin
voice, as if struggling with pain.
" Did you send for me V said I.
" Thieves, murder, help !" suddenly cried
the same voice, and from among the mass of
rags and filth, a long skinny arm protruded,
grasping a pistoL
, I own I was a little alarmed, and said has
tily " I am Dr.
- " You have not come to rob me, then V
" You, you ! certainly not."
" But -but you know if you had I have
nothing. Mind, nothing nothing !"
" Is your name Tempie V I said.
" Ha !" he screamed. " how do you know
that ! No, no I am a beggar."
"A Mr. Temple sent for me."
" Stay, stay ! Fasten the door ; place the
jug e gainst it. We we shall be robbed else.
Not that I have anything to lose. No no ; I
afti miserably poor, wretchedly poor."
"Then you should apply for assistance,"
said I, " where you have a right to demand it.
If I was to give yon a prescription, you could
uot pet it made np for nothing, you know."
" No, no," he replied. " I I know. Look
at me look, doctor, look."
He raised himself on his arm, and in the
thin emaciated face of my strange patient I
recognized the old beggar who used to cling
to my area rails.
- " I do recollect you," I said.
You do now t"
- And your name is Temple, is it not V
" Temple ! he screamed ; " who says my
name is Temple I"
- Your own messenger."
" Then then I must have raved."
" What complaint have you!" said I.
Slowly he drew his band from under the
rags, and letting an old tarnished guinea drop
from his clenched first, he said, with a deep
" There there's your fee."
" I do not require it of you r said I.
' " Then I then I will keep it. Don't tell
anybody you saw it, or I shall be robbed !"
He clenched the coin again, and withdrew
his ghastly attenuated band and arm. I
could see by his whole appearance that he
was suffering from want of nourvihing diet,
and I said
"You must spend that guinea to-day in
some vne and arrow-root."
" Guinea ! he cried, "what guinea? I have
no gold. Do you want to rob me ? I am ill,
I know I am i 11. Tell me what's the matter
with me ; but mind one thing" , -
" I am not dy dying. Mind that I am
hot dying. No, no not dying !"
x ou will, though," said 1, "if you do not
take some nourishing drinks.
He fixed his glassy eyes upon my face as
"Do you think .half a putt of porter
really necessary for me ?'
I laughed, and said, " a bottle of good
wine, you mean.
"Wine!" he cried.
1 and I so wretchedly
poor-o miserably poor!"
" Do you know," said I, " I begin to sus
" What what V he cried-
" That you are not so poor as you affect to
be. Have you not some 'secret hoard, now,
that freely used, would make the remainder
of your life comfortable f
" What, gold !" he shrieked, " you do not
think I have gold T
" Yes I do. You are a miser."
" A miser V
He fell back on the bed with a gasp ; then,
suddenly sDnnrnner up, he screamed
" Thieves ! thieves ! help, help, help, rob
" I shall leave yod," said I, " if you make
such a noise.
The door now opened and a coarse man
put his head into the room, with the polite
inauirv of" What's the row V
" Nothing," said I, " the old man is ill, and
" Oh, that's the ticket, is it ? He's going
all for to assault the bucket at last, is he ?
There'll be a nut for old Nick !"
Having delivered himself of this elegant
opinion, the man withdrew his head, and shut
the door. When 1 turned again to the old
man, he lay in a swoon on his miserable bed

sitrh he opened his eyes, and fixed them upon
my face with an expression of mournful in
tensity. . ; .
" How are you now ?" said 1.
" Better better, he muttered."
I saw thrt it was not so, for a change had
come across his lace, and there was a pecu
liar gaze about his eyes, that told me he was
dying. Impressed as l was witn tne convic
tion that he had money secreted, which
might be of service to some one claiming
kindred with him. I did not hesitate to tell
him his real condition.
" Do not deceive yourseil, . said 1, " you
He SDruner up in bed with a shriek, as if
he had bten galvanized.
" Dying ?" he cried, "no, no, not dying !
Let me live live on, though it be in want.
Why should I die ? No, no, I cannot will
not die !"
It was dreadful to see the agitation of his
features. Hot, scalding tears poured down his
cheeks; he clutched the scanty covering which
was upon him till the blood started, and still
" I cannot dare not die ?"
"Then he suddenly turned to me, and
clutching my arm, he cried in the most sup
" Save me ! save me ! for the love of Heav

I knew that a few hours roust end the scene,
and I seized the opportunity of leaving the
room, and getting somebody in the house to
fetch some wine and brandy, for I knew that
by stimulants alone could the flickering flame
of life be kept alive for the next few hours.
When I returned, I started, for he had ris
en from his pallet, and was kneeling before
the wretched little skeleton grate, which, by
its rust, bad evidently not seen a fire for
years. He did not'hear me, and I paused to
With feeble effort he wenched from its
place the little grate, and then I saw him ea
gerly clutch at something. With a scream,
he sprang to his feet, and, as he did so, a bag
fell from his relaxed hold with a loud clash,
upon the floor.
" Wretched man !" 1 said, pointing to the
bag, " is it for this you cling to life ?"
He tried to speak, but could not. His
hand clutched the air wildly. Inarticulate
sounds came from his throat, and I had just
time to catch him when he again fainted. I
carried him to the bed, if bed it could be
called, and then carefully replacing the grate,
I lifted the bag he had dropped, and concealed
it under some musty apparel which lay in a
rotting heap in one corner of the room.
I was most anxious that he should live to
make some bequest of his money to some
good purpose, and I, with fome anxiety, felt
his pulse ; it was beating freely, but there
was a tolerably regular action. I left the
room again, and was glad to meet on the stair
case a girl with the wine and brandy. I took
them from her, and returning, poured a little
of the former into the miser's mouth.
In a few moments, returning animation be
gan to show itself, but I feared he was deliri
ous, for he talked strangely.
" They are all dead now," he muttered
" dead, I tell you ; they don't want my gold ;
it's twelve years ago. They are dead
" Who are dead ?" said I.
" He !" he cried. " Who speaks to me in
the dark T
"The dark!" said I.
" Yes, the night is very dark, so very dark."
I looked at his eyes and perceived that the
sight was gone. He was stone blind. I
feared that the other perceptive faculties
would quickly follow, and I said
" Tell me truly, have you any kindred ?"
" Kindred V he repeated.
" Yes ; have you a child, or a child's child !"
"A child child!" he said, falteringly,
" have I a child's child ? Did my own little
blue-eyed Emma ever fondle a darling of her
own, because because, have mercy upon me
that would be my child's child."
I never shall forget the burst of frantic grief
which followed the words. His sobs were
terrible. Such agony of sorrow I never be
fore saw, and hope never to see again. I was
deeply affected. Grief in the young is dis
tressing, but there was something awful in the
that white haired old
" Calm yourself," I said, though my own
voice was broken with emotion ; " there may
be still time to repair, in some measure, the
past. Confide all to me, and I promise, before
Heaven, to do what I can in furtherance of, I
hope, your newly awakened kind feelings.
" God bless and prosper you," he said faint
ly, I will tell all all.
His voice was very faint, and I stooped
over him to listen, ilmgled with broken
sobs, he thus addressed me
"i nau a wile, whom l loved, and and a
little blue-eyed thing, with a sweet laugh,
who was as happy as the day is long, and we
called her Emma. My wife, the companion
of my young days, wasted away before my
eves, and died. Then I was alone with mv
child, my little one, but there came a chilling
shadow across my heart, and 1 was unhappy.
" At last it shaped itself into a form, and
avarice ' became my passion I hoarded
hoarded all, but still in want, in misery and
privation, my little child clung to me, and
loved me. The pleasures of childhood she
never knew ; playmaL s she had none ; yet
she clung to me, and she grew in beauty too.
till she was sixteen ; then one day she hung
upon my neck and told me she was loved by
a mere youth. I knew him. His genius
was his only possession, and. I scorned him.
Then one day he came to me, and she, my
mma they both knelt at my feet and

thing who used to nestle in my breast, he
said she had died of want in giving birth to a
child absolute want."
" Can that be true ?" said I. .
" Hush !" he cried, " hear all hear all.
Her young husband he, too, they said, had
kissed his child and then sought a grave and I
had saved my gold !"
' " When did you hear this ?"
" The last time I clung to the railing of
your house. Since then I have not tasted

did it live?"
" I know not."
" Where did all this happen ?'
" That is a small place near -."
" And your daughter's husband's name ?"
" Was Durham."
I immediately formed a resolve, and ris
ing, I said
" Be calm till I return. Take a little wine
occasionally, and I will send you a nurse and
other refreshments." .
" Take with you the dross which has been

I hurried from the room. Medical men
know plenty of nurses, and in half an hour I
sent one to the old man with medicine and
food ; then hurried home to my wife

" Don't ask me any questions but come with
me, I have ordered post horses, and we shall
be there within three hours, they tell me.
I'll tell you every thing on the road."
Good fast horses and a well paid postillion
do wonders. As we neared , I called
to the driver
" Is there a work house at ?
" A workus ?" he cried. " Lor ! I thinks
as there isn't ; but there is at .' A work
I had told the whole story to my wife, and
she had at once suggested an inquiry at the
work house, to ascertain if the child had liv
ed or died, as the parish must have been cog
nizant of the whole affair. We soon rattled
up to the work house door, and I was usher
ed into the master's room.
"Iam Dr ," said I. " Have you a
child here by the name of Durham ?"
" Yes sir," was the immediate answer.
" Thank Heaven," said I. " What is it a
"No, sir, a girl."
" It's age ?"
" About eleven, sir. You see we had to
bury the mother, and the father drowned
" Will you trust the child to me ?"
" I dare not, sir," said the man.
" I will hold you harmless," said I. " You
know me by name."
The master hesitated a moment, and then
" I will sir. Will you please to be seated
a. moment ?"
He was scarcely two minutes gone when
he returned, leading by the hand a little girl
dressed in a blue stuff gown of five centuries
ago, and a little pinched up white cap. She
was a beautiful little thing, with mild blue
eyes, and a look of earnest simplicity upon
her face, which I admired very much.
" Thank you sir," said 1 to the master
" You shall hear from me to-morrow."
He bowed, and took the little orphan by
the hand, and led her to the chaise. The
moment I appeared at the work house door,
a great crowd that had there assembled,
greeted me with a loud hurrah.
I handed the child into the chaise, and fol
" To London," said I.
" Hurrah !" shouted the crowd, and away
1 had been away five hours exactly when I ,
entered the miser's room with his daughter's '
child. He was asleep, and the nurse told me
he had been quite delirious. I felt certain that
this was his last sleep, and I motioned the
child, who was a sweet tempered, tractable
little thing, to stand quietly by the bed side,
while I awaited for his awakening. There
was a dead silence for about a quarter of an
hour, and then he muttered in his sleep
" Yes darling yes ; kiss me my little Em
ma. Bless you bless bless "
" Are you better ?" I said softly.
" That's Dr. " he said.
" Yes," I replied.
" I am much better, thank you," he said,
" in fact quite strong and well. I had a pain,
but it's gone and it's still night."
I saw by some infallible sign that he was
" If," I said, " your daughter had a child, it
would inherit all you have."
" Dr. ." he said, " I could die happy if
some one could assure me that my poor Em
ma's child was alive ; but but "
He burst into tears. The little girl who
was very tender hearted, was so much affect
ed, that she wept audibly. I shall never for

Who who weeps for me ?"
" Listen," I said. " It's your own Emma's
He claped his hands, and his face for a
moment was lit up with heavenly joy ; then
opening his arms, he said
" Come ! come to my heart ! to my heart!"
I placed the child in his arms sayirg
" Kiss your mother's fathy."
She twined her little arms around his neck,
and kissed his furrowed cheek.
Slowly the old man's arms relaxed their
hold. He fell lack on the pillow. There
was a smile of joy on his face, but he teas
Property to the amount of five thousand
pounds, was found belonging to him, which
the poor parish child came into undisputed
possession of; and I can only say for myself,
that no event of my life has given me greater
pleasure to think of.

AFTER &EVERAL YEARS LABOR AND
ex;erimenting upon whales, on the whaling ground, with
his apparatus, combined with the advantages ot being a practical
wlutlemau, the Patentee has been enabled to obtain an Instru
ment ic form of a Bomb Lance, which for utility and effective
ness eanuut be excelled. V
The attention of Agents' and Officers of whale-ships is called
to the following testimonials. . , ,
6 as Fbakchco, January 10, 1868.
Capt. R. Brows Sir I take this opportunity to inform
you that we used those Bomb Lances we bought of yon, and
found them to be o. necefit in capturing whale amongst
The first whal- Uia .. c nrcd the Bomb Lance on was killed
. In the following manner .The boat went alongside at the whale
and the boat-steerer fixed a Bomb Into him a:d then fastened to
him with a gig iron : the Bomb was heard to explode, and the
whale did not blow after the Bomb exploded. The above-mentioned
whale was in the foe, and it is our opinion that we should
not have got that whale and many others that we did get, if it
had not been for your Bomb Lances, and we fully recommend
them to the attention of those fitting out whale ships.
Respectfully yours, . .. .
Tbomas Wall, Master bark Gtorgt.
HoKOLCLr, March 17, I860.
Capt. Robert Brows My dear Sir t I used yjur Bomb
Lances in taking a whale, north, the past season, which made
260 bbls. of oil. We never could have taken him without said
Lances, as our boat could not get near enough to tne the Com
mon hand lance. ,
