which a clvar'gitiu bf two thousand dollars

The owner of ibis pair of eyes was a slen
der rather poorly dressed lad, in his thir

office and run upon, errands. He was-the
son of a widowed mothor, now in greatly
reduced circumstances. His fathor had
been an early., friend of Mr. Everett. It
was this fact which led to the boy's intro

had uttered aloud his satisfaction; but now

A new train of thoughts now entered
the brokerk's mind. The child-of his old
friend had been taken' into his office from-a
kind of charitable feeling, - though of low
vitality, i : He paid him a couple ef dollars
a week, and thought little more about him
or his widowed mother. He had too many
important interests oi his owv at stake, to-
have his mind turned aside lor a trilling
matter like this. Iiutnowas theimacteof
that sad face for it was unusually sad at
the moment when Mr. Everett looked sua

mind,, growing every moment -more dis

considerations of duty and humanity were
excited. lie remembered his old friend,
and the pleasant hours they had spent to

A- brief note was written, in which Mr.
Everett not only offered present aid, but
promised for the snke of old recollections

mind to be tlt3 widow's future friend.
For half an hour after the lad departed,
the broker sat musing, with his eyes upon
the floor, his 'thoughts were clear and his
feelings tranquil. He had made on that
day the sum of two thousand dollars by a
single transaction, but the thought, of. this
