In a pleasant little village in the far
famed "Blue Grass"' region of lvcn
tuek, once lived a lawyer whoe name
was Hiuiiilton, and whose character
was as spotless as tne untoueueu

of him, because, with a heart a- large
as charity itself, whenever a poor
wretch who had no money wherewith
to retain counsel, was brought before
the tribunal where Hamilton practic
ed if there was the faintest ray of in
nocence in hi case, "The People's
Lawyer" olunteered his services' to
help him to ju-tiee as cheerfully as if
he bad been oue of the wealthiest or
hiel.est b-rn of the land.
Indeed Wi'.lam Hamilton a- wide
ly different from the average lawyer,
as poitrajed by weak yarn writers in
their Wood-and thunder storie.-, beg
girly play-wrights in their sickly at-
tempts at dramatization, and penny-a- j
liners in their treasonable adults upon
the ' King's Engli-h a class of scribl
ers who generally t.-ike a lawyer, and
in their daubing way, paint him for
the vidain ofdire idots. This, when
it "..known by all who know anything
about the law, that the legal profes
sion is the only one in which, by com
mon consent, the indigent arc provid
ed, fice of enst with its assistance
when needed. It rests with the in
dividual phy-ician whether, or not he
will t:o arid minister relief to a poor
sufferer, who calls hiin without cah.
We have iustaticcs where they who
weftr the holy ?ab of God's ministers
have sent away with a refusal thoe
who have a-ked tlum to come and
perform the last said rites at a poor
man's grave, or have directed the
messenger to the "little Ccurcl
.round the earner." But in" all the
couits of the land, faicycm have made
it a rule, that when the moneyless

William Hamilton was ever the
friend and counsellor of any strug
gling, honest man who happened to
be, in any manner, entangled in the
meshes of the law, and as euch was
beloved and respectcl by the entire

when the lawyer was sr.ttnc in ni-
office mu-ihe aone. a, tall, lank and
cawkv country lad, whose home-spun
j-ans was sadly patched, and whose
homy hinds told of rough. haritVork
and a rouahe hard hie, stoppea
trTrwardlv on the docTSten, andlooc
'Pnnu. in and 'it down," said . Mr.
Hamilton, in a cheery wav, and the
lad. reassyred by the kindly tone of
the good nans voice, walked diSdeBt
ly in and took a seat.
With all his gawkmess and ks? th,
and-with all hisgrcennessaod patches,
there was an air of mdeadece
abovt the boy, acd.a sparkle of jctel

During all this time; from the day
the young attorney appeared in
patches at the office door, until the
time of hi? departure, he ha I been an
inmate of Mr. Hamilton's home, and
had won the friendship and esteem of
lhe hou.chold. A golden-haired boy
and a blue-eyed, fiixen haired little
maiden, had come to William Hamil
