THE INDEPENDENT: OSKALOOSA, KANSAS,-SATURDAY DECEMBER 30, 1865.
.1 believe the boy came in to steal
Why ehetlid he creep into the kitch
en without knocking? .
Pet was silting there in one of her
thoughtful moods; I. could see thio'
the side window, though the luxuri
ant grape-vines hid me completely
At first sight the boy startled mc.
He was uncouth he was ugly. Not
only that, but his brow was low;
and to me his eye was vicious.
Some children would have screamed
at such an apparition Pet did not.
Instead, a smile broke over her face
like a burst of sunshine.
Pet made us often tremble, often
'sigh her father and me. Not that
she was preternaturally good or giv
en to extraordinary speeches; but
there was a strange attractiveness
about her an unearthliness tho'
we never would say the word to
each olhsr. Her little soul seemed
tb flow out toward you; you felt im
pelled to speak, ay, even to think
purely in her presence. Nothing
human repulsed her; I have shudder
ed to see her clasp a filthy little crea
ture round the neck. Every body
was 'nice' with her, and in her vo
cabulary 'nice' meant good.
AJ5ut to go back to the intruder.
It startled me to see her smile; but
in an instant the bov looked shamed.
A. .flush spread to the purplish swel
lings under his eyes.
Is 'oo htingy?' cried Pet, in hei
clear, small bird-like voice. A mo
ment after she emerged from her
corner'with a lovely rosy apple, that
tilled Dotn wee hands, and running
( toward him, her eyes shining, 1 tho't
I had never seen so beautiful an ex
pression in a human face.

iHe seemed to hesitate.

The tears stood in his eves now.
-'Fdon't know as 1 wantanything,
ma'am. I well I I don't know
Have vou a home?' I asked

I'll do it,' he cried
- 'Can I trust vout' I asked; but I
tried to say it with a smile.
'Yes, vou maVi indeed vou mav,
he said; and then, with a swift mo
,tion jerked his sleeve across his eye,
:He told' me he was called bertie.
and i imparted his name to Pet. So
every little while she would pot, pat
to the head'of the stairs, and crv out:
'Bertie is oo nice?' then tliiow
back her little head and burst into
fuch'silvery peals of laughter, that 1
laughed softly to myself every time
I heard her.
Bertie came next day to finish
the job, and his gray eyes that I had
thought so wicked, grew positively
beautiful at sight of Pet.
4 ' 'O, I love her, ma'am!' he exclai
med. O, Pd give anything if I might
kiss her, ma'am.'
Pet, Bertie wants to kiss,' I said.
Is 'oo nice?' laughed Pet, suspen
ding her busy little operations.
'fcd no J ain't nice,' he said re
morsefully. Sh seemed to deliberate a mo
ment, then she said, slowly:
Well, 'oo mitst be nice;' came up
to him and put up her rose-bud lips.
He kissed her made that swift,
awkward motion with his sleeve
again, and went to his work.
My husband became interested in
the boy. Depend upon it, Hetty,'
he said, 'he's a neglected genius, or
he never would have shown sensibil
ity. I'll see about him.'
He did see about him to some
purpose. He gave him occupation;
found him reliable and steady. The
war broke out Berjie enlisted was
wounded, aud came near dying in
the hospital. From that sick-bed he
returned home refined, spiritulized.
