stout slip of n boy at that. In tho
winter ho went to school, and in tho
summer lie picked up stones and work

Squire Vale thoy called hiin, not that

did't like tho squire, and as for Eugcno.
it wouiun't ue too mucn to say no luiteu

set up in his ways, and rather careless
about hurting poor people's feelings,
and when lie was angry, said a good
many tilings ne was sorry lor attor

tliat oiienuect or nurt lum. bo tlio two
boys did not get on very well together,
especially tho winter when thoy wero
both twelve years old, and went toge

not know half as much, said he, and
wont on so that his poor mother cried,
and Nan toll him he was a wicked boy,
and she didn't love him, "which mauo
matters worse: for if there was any
thing in the world Jacob loved bettor
tnan all else, it was poor, paio, pretty
little Nan, his cripple sister.
it was the very next day alter tuta
scene that the end of the whole matter
arrived in this way. Both boys staid at
noon , and so in met did almost tno wnoio

ISugeno and Jacob took diil'eront sides
