unwrapping a parcel with a religious care,
began to place tho contents in position.

Ho worked quietly. He worked faithfully.
Finally a little negro boy w ho was pawing

and watched bun. A bootblack caino
next, sat down on bis box and with
both hands under his chin, watched him.
A while boy, with ono suxendor and a
pocketful of marbles, came next, plunked
at the little negro a huel, denied doing so,
end joined tho watchers. An old i-etnle-
man witu a basket ol wares camo next and
looked on. A lady and gentleman camo
from the north and stopped to look. Two
gentlemen came front tho south and
