I cooW not attend eScept in the winter-fime.
: 'While! was thus studying,' I procured a
copy of Murray's English Grammar. When
I obtained this book, I felt very rich. " The '
sawyer had never studied grammar, but to
gether we went at it,Wd soon we had com
mitted to memory 'all the coarse print' I
would ; recite to my fellow-pupil and he
would recite to me.- The first winter' aa I
said, we' committed to memory all the coarse
print, aftd now I can repeat nearly all "of It,
though I am fbrty-six"'year8 of age. ' ' '

My ; father '"hired a manv'a; manage' the
dish'llery, who' was fond of reading ; and I
waa put to work with him. We could get
our works in operation, and then we could
have considerable leisure time. This time
was spent in reading together. But as my
father thought ft was not worth while to fur
nish me with book's,' I 'was much perplexed
to get them." But my parents were wiflih
to furbish me with money to spend aj dances,
rides and parties while I had ho desire to
attend Hhetri: "Howeverr t would" take the
nioilef and go, b'fit'w'duld WfrifnTrom joih-

' "For two years we thus studied together.
Bot It was" necessary to secrete my little li
brary.' 1 "Accordingly I made a box for .my
books, arid hid it away in the loft of the dis-
tiireryVI kept It hid. No one, but the dis
tiller, knew that I had such a treasure.
But one day my fathernappened to be look
ing among the rubbish of the 16ft, and there
he espied my box and its "precious contents.
Immediately an enquiry was started as to
who waa the owner. I came forward and
plead guilty. ' The next queation wis, "How
came yon by so many books!": .That atory
was soon 46ld. - I informed my father, that,
instead of spending the money he had given
me, from timfc totim'e, f had saved it and pur-'
chased booki. This displeased him' very
much ; a.id I waa threatened with the whip.
But as I had been faithful in the discharge
'of my duties, so far as' labor was concerned
I was permitted to go unpunished. ,
"Much as my parents were displeased,
and much as I regretted that my hidden
treasure had been found, it finally proved a
blessing to me V for, after some weeks of
thought and consultation, it waa deemed best
to 'give me my time,' and thus give mean
opportunity to 'obtain what I so much seem
