Everybody appeared to be so happy

That was all, for Huge broke down

she knew nothing of tho sufferings of
such a privation.
" But 1113- little bov, I have no money

And then she had left her purse at

SALINA, KANSAS, THURSDAY, APRIL 11, 1872.
The child was asleop, but the mother's
dark eyes -were looking earnestly toward
the door, for she bearU ITngh's footstep
upon the stairs, and from its quick tread
she argued success iu his pitilul mission
. Jt was .hard, to, Hetherc and, suffer
without aid of any kind, she who had
once been the petted darling of a luxu
rious home; bat it was harder still to
sec her little ones wanting food ! She
had strusgled. as long as health and
strength remained to earn a meagre sub-

longer ab'c to labor, and what was to

lying there so helpless herself!
Years before had Elie Lennox left
her f.ithcr's house, to marry a man who
had 'proved a heartless adventurer, and
who had married her simply for the
wealth which he had believed' would be
her portion. But her father was bo an
gry at her wilful marriage that ho had
then denounced her, and from that day
to this she had never looked again upon
her father's face.
Tho husband whom sho had loved and
trusted so kiudly, for whom sho had
given up ail, had forsaken her after
rinding that her father had really cast

and admirers in happier day, she snug

earlier associations that nor.e of her
family knew whether sho was living or
And so it came at last, that on this
bright Easter morning, if Hugh and llir-
Uie were to have bread, there was no re
source bat to beg for it.
'Piotfy soon 1 shall be well again,"
said the poor mother to her little hon,
"and then you shall want for nothing."
Elsie's heart rebelled within her, as
she lay theio listening to the merry
chiming of the bells. Had the great
All-father forgotten her in the hour of
her need, as s.ho and her babies to die
of starvation, while plenty and luxury
were all around them ?
Just then, while Elsie was as'ring her
self these little questions, the door burst
tijicu and little Hugh, with his face all
aglow with triumph, came running to
wards her, holding forth the lilly in hii
"See, mamma, the beautiful flower I
haro brought you; a young lady gave it

She .said it was Raster morning, and she

Tlio sight ot that frail, wonderful lily,
rebuked Elsie's rebellious tho'ights. Sho
took the blossom iu her white ban I,ai'd
thought " God has sent me this Jvuster
blossom as a sweet token that He who
carclh for tho fading dower wiil care al

"And here," said Hn'i, plating a bill
in her hand, "here is.somo money which
a kind gentleman gave me, and 1 will
run now and buy some ivial and some
thing for us all to eat, and oh, mamma,

And so Hugh ran oli again, this time
carrying two baskets in his hand-', which
were to be filled at the corner store, which
had an orthodox way of closing its front
door upon Sunday to pleas" the oi thodox
people, while tiie sinners Were duly in

crackling in the little stove, and Uic tea

Hugb wis a thoughtful child though
ful far .beyond his years. Perhaps ear
ly privation had made him so. And as
ho stood hy the window admiring the
lily and looking sadly down into "street
below, a sudden thought came to him.
He wouldtako the flower out into the
street and perhaps some one would buy
it from him, and thus they might have
food for another day. His mother was
asleep. Blcsied sleep, that turns asido
for a littlu while, at least, the cruel darts

Hugh put on his hat, and taking up
the flower as it stood in the pitcher, vcry
gcntly, for tho flower as well as the
pitcher now said, "take care!" and
Hugh was airaid that the white petals of
tho lily would fall softly he went down
the stairs, out through the door, aiul
hurried through the street until he had
left the dreary neighborhood, so crowd
ed by dirty children and slatternly wom
en and men, who never thought of buy
When Hugh finally reached the clean
pavement of an aristocratic acnuc
somehow Jio felt himself to be more at
home there, than iu the wretched street
he had left bohind. For Hugh had an
innate sense of refinement a Jove for the
neat as well as the beautiful which of
ten made him shudder and shrink from
the disagreeable surrounding of his home
Hugh never lingered iu the court-yards,
or upon the dirtv pavement to play with
still dirtier children who gathered there;
but preferred his work in the carrot with
only little liirdio lor a playmate.
Hugh walked slowly up tho avenue,
carying tho flowers in the broken pitch
er, and wondering whether ha should
find a customcr'for it.
Poor littlo fellow! with nothing be
tween him and starvation but a broken
pitcher aud a faded flower !
He soon became wear,- of walking,
and eat down upon tho steps of a state
ly brown stone mansion. Hero he lin
gered for an hour, sometimes starting
hastily up to offer his flowers to som?
passer-by. But nobody stopped to buy,
nobody seemed to notice him at all, and
Hugh's courage and hope began to fail.
He placed tho pitcher beside him. upon
the steps, and wearily rested his cheek
upon hW bans.
How he sighed to think that ho was
not a man !
" If 1 were but an a man," said Hugh
to himself, "there would be no more
davs of hungor and want for mnnima
ami little Birdie!"
And while he sat thinking tho door
of the mansion opened, and a tall gen
tleman wun gray liair, who carraicu a
golden-headed cane, came Mowlv down
tho steps. Hugh rose hastily and, lift
ed up Ins tlower aud said :
" Please buy this lily air! Mamma has
nothing to cat : "
The old gc'iitlcman, who was about to
send the intruder away with a sharp re
primand for loitering upon his door.slcp,
paused and hesitated as lie met Hugh's
pleading eyes turned toward him.
" What is your nam:, little fellow, and
who is your mother 1 "
"My nauio is Hugh Huh Lennox,
sir," replied the boy.
"Hugh Leimcrx ! Why, that is my
name, you young impostor! " exelaincd
tho old gentleman.
Hugh was so frightened tint he could
not utter another word. Hut there w:u
something iu the boy's face which need
ed no words to contradicf the old man's
harsh epithet of " imposter."
" If your name is Hugh Lcnrtox, pray
what is your mothers name?" ugain
asked the" stranger.
"Mamma's name is Elsie Lennox," re
plied thcihild, whoeeonly thought now
was how to evade this stern old man
who asked him so many question, aud
who did not offer to buy his flowers.
"Elsie Lennox! MaV God help mo!
Can this be her child?" exclaimed tho
Just then a carriage drove up before
the house, an elegant carriage w ith gaily
comparisoned Jiorscs, who were prancing
with eagerncs to be on their way.
" Come with me my boy, ami show
me where your mother lives," aid the
gentleman entering the carriage, aud
motioning Hugh to follow him.
And as they rolled away, out of the
aristocratic streets into the dismel quar
ters where Elsie Lennox had found her
wretched home, and as the carriage stood
below, surrounded b3'a crowd ot curious
idlers who wondered what such a vehi
cle could be doing there, its pwncr fol
lowed Hugh up the dark and nckcty
stairway, up to tho top of tho house.
When JJngli opened the door, his moth
er lay with her eyes closed, and little
Birdie was bundled c!os to the empty
stove, in a vain attempt to warm herself
over tho dead co-ils. Was it sleep or
was it death which bad come to Elsie
Lennox? If but .sleep, it was so like
death that Hugh's heart almost teamed
throbbing, through fear, as he went soft
ly up to the bedside; and the trangcr
grasped his cane tighter in his band and
shuddered, as he bent over that pale face
striving to find in those fadol lnteamcnU
the once brilliant beauty of his lost child.
So the -histcr blossom ban pcrlortncd
its mission, and it was Elsie's father who
bent over ber now. ' -.
SIowlv her dark eves opened and filled
with wonder as thev met the gaze ofthe
old man. and she would bare fainted

and said :

As soon as Mr. Lennox could compose

.1 Senator's Kiperlcnrc Contrasts of a Lire.
In the recent speech ot Great FalN,
X. II., senator Henry WiNon, referring
to coiiio experiences in his early life,
said : I feel that 1 have tho right to
speak for toiling men and to toiling men.
I was born here in 3-our county ot Staf
ford. I was born in povrty; want :tt
hy my cradle. I know what it is to ask
a mother for bread when she has none
to give. I left my homo at tc.i years 'of
ago ami served an apjireiit'ccsinp oi
eleven years, lcceiving a month's sciioo!
inir each year, and at tho end of eleven
years ot bird work, a yokaof oxen and
six sheep, which brought me eighty-four
dollar. A dollar would cover every
penny I spent from the time I was born
until I was twenty-one years of age. I
know what it is to tra el weary miles
and ask my fellow mn to givu me lief
to toil. I remember that in September,
13:?, I walked intoyour village from my
n-ttivc town, and went through your
mills, seeking employment. Ifanyl'otly
had offered mo S3 or i'J a month, I should
have accepted it gladly. I wont down
to Salmon FuIN, I went to l)over, I went
to Newmarket, and tried to gel work,
without success, and I returned I ome
weary but notdiscouragcd, and put my
pack on my back and walked to the
town where I now live and loartied a
mechanic's trade. I knoir the hard lot
that toiling men have to endure in this
world, and every pulsation of my heart,
every conviction of mv judgement, puts
me on tho side of toiling men of anr
country aye, of all countries.
I am glad the working men of Europe
are getting discontented and want bet
ter wages. I thank (toil that a man in
tho United States can earn from -hrcoto
lour dollars, in ten hour's work, easier
than he could forty years ago earn one

hours. The first month I work

the men who were there what they paid
men iu haying time last nmrticr, and
they said, from 52 to $2 0 i.er dav.
This was paid on the same ground where
