that I were fctrong enough and

"ihongh the loss of that would
lie serious to a joor man, but in
the inner packet I had stowed
away some papers and an old
memorandum which I thall miss
very much. If you just get me
them, you can let the poor wretch
keep the money."
This proposal wa against all
law and irder, ni.d he must have
known it: but I had to remind
him ot the fact.
"Ah, yes, I know," hi said, in
his quick way, with a merry
smile. "It's against the law, if
course, but you detectives can
easily stretch a point when you

orly throw out the hint. Get the

Alter eliciting all the facta I

that it had left London, and the f

A little before ten o'clock next
morning, while we were chatting
away, a slim morsel of a boy m tde '
hia appearance, with his eyes all
red and swelled with crying, and;
asked if this was the detective

gazed at the little intruder. The
strangest thing about him was
h:s "dkinnyness" he was a mere
hadows of a boy, though be bad a
prepospcst-ing fact1, in spile of the
blearing cflect of the cry ing.

the quivering of his hp, that hi

lie was choking and shaLing all
over aB he got the words out, but
it was no use. A blinding rush
of tears came to his cyei, and the
he ivy purse dropped at his feet.
There was a strange silence in
the room. Nobody rushed for

grarped him by the collar to bus

"What's your name?" I asked;
but I was not prepared for the
change the simple question pro
duced. His face flushed up, and
every teor burnt out of his eyes,
as he said:
"My name is Willie Bell, but
they all call me 'Little Jinks'
now. That's why I ran away
from 'home.' But I pitched into
them before I left not for that,
but for something else," and the
recollection seemed to afford the.
little man a kind of fierce pleas
ure. "Oh, so you ran away from
the 'home.' I suppose your
mother was pretty poor, Willie
not well ofl eh? '
"That's if, sir," he cried, with
tudden intelligence flashing out
of Lis tearful eyes. "That's how
she died I'm sure of it because
she hadn't enough to cat. I
tried to save her by stealing the
purse after I ran away from the
'home;' but when I got home
when I got home she couldn't
eat and she died without know
ing what I had done. Do you
think they'll tell her in heaven
that I stole it?"
He appeared bo anxious for a
negative that I felt forced to say:
"1 don't think they will, Willie,
because that would be sure to
make her unhappy wouldn't it?"
J his brought a fresh burst of
sobbing, and then he said:
"I hope I'll be hanged. I
want to die now. It's no living
without mother, and everybody
else so cruel. There's nobody to
put their arms round mo when I
am hungry, I I I'm trying
not to cry I made it all up be
fore I came that I wouldn't cry,
but somehow 1 can't help it. It
seems very hard that God should
take her away, for I loved her
so, and I'm such a small boy."
I cculd not get an answer, and
nobody elso seemed ready to

and motioned to him to follow me
into another room, and tkere
poor Willie told me his mother's
history, and a sad, tad history it
It was an old story a garret,
pinching want, and a hard strug
gle for baie life, which finally
drove the mother into delicite
health, and the boy into one of
the "home s" of London.
But here poor Willie's troubles
increased. The boys of the home '
crowded around the strange little
arrival, and dubbed him "Little
Jinks." No rudeness nor unkind
n3;'3 was meant it was their cus
tom, and he had to g've up at-k-ing
them to call him Willio, for
"Little Jinks" they would have
him, and nothing else. The first
day passed all well enough l.e
msido one or two acquaintances
and nt night,when all were asleep,
and the cold moonlight stole into
the dormitory, he had a good cry,
keeping his head mufil'd in the
b 'dclulhes lo stitle the found.
Bat fresh griefe were in store
for him. In un evil hour he had
confided to some of his new ac
quaintances particulars of his own
life and history ; and next day
when he found them torturing one
ot their number, a mute named
Johnnie, ha horrified them by fi

them, releasing the sufferer, and
daring them to touch him again.
Au excited circle instantly form

"It's 'Jinks.' the bejrar. the

the floored boy, gathering hitnseli

"Stuck up for Johnnie."
"Oh. mv! ha! ha! ha!" and
the jeering laugh ran round all.
"I don't care what you eay,"
chokingly returned "Jioks,"blush
ing to the ears, and then turning
dangerously white. "You're a
pack of cruel brutes 1"
"Ha! ha! ha!" laughed the
boys. "What a pity hia mother
isn't hero. Ho! ho ! ho !"
"Don't vou SDeak of my moth

with a strange flashing ot the eyes.

"01 course the Ha told mo

Ho! bo! "
The last speaker didn't get his
laugh out, for though he towered
up tall ard Ftrong, "Jinks" had
flashed through the air like a
bloodhound and grabbed his throat.
They fought lon and fiercely,and,
small as lie was, "Jinks" seemed
to be getting the best of it, when
the assistant masters suddenly ap
peared on the scene, and put nn
end to the struggle.
And now "Jinks" experienced
the danger -of going against the
majority. The small boy and ha
gave the true version of the sto
ry ; the other boyp, one and all,
gave quite a different one; and the
majority carried the day.
"Jinks" and Johnnie were car
ried in and caned till every bone
in their bodies ached, and then
shuc up in different little rooms
oa the ground floor, with a hunch
of dry bread and a mug of water
Toor "Jinks" thought it now
high time to make his escape
from a place where he was so mis
erable, and get back to his moth
er. In getting through the win
dow of the room in which he was
confined he fell to the ground, and
was considerably shaken. Before
he could rise to his feet his terror
was increased by a policeman ar
riving on the spot.
"Oh, sir," he managed to ga?p
out, "I'm only little 'Jinkp,' you
won't stop mc ? They beat me
all over for nothing. But I did
not mind that; but they cabled
my mother a beggar ; and I'm run
ning away from them. Oh, do let
me go 1 Mother will be glad if
y ou let me off, she will, indeed."
The policeman looked down at
the little atom, with his torn shirt
and sfains of bloo 1 coraing through
and his pitiful face and wildly
pleading eyes. He didn't 6hake
him or grapp him roughly. No,
he took the boy up in his arms.
He tried to speak to him, but for
long the words stuck in his throat,
and when he did get them out
they were strangely husky, and
not at all harsh or unkind.
"Poor little fel'ow! '
The unexpected w rds went
straight to little "Jinks'" heart.
If the man had kicked him, he
would have been stone; but the
kind words drew from him a con
vulsive sob, and must have Fet
his bruin reeling, fur the hext
thing he was conscious of was the
policeman putting a 6oit of fiery
stuff into hiu mouth out of a flask,
and telling him to keep up a
good heart, for he wouldn't let
anybody touch him.
They were fiiends in a mo
It ended, however, by the
kind policeman carrying little
"Jii.ks" to his mother; and tlie
poor woman when she heard the
account, received him with op;.n
arms and there l.e remained with
her until the d ty of her death,
and the day indeed, on which he
stole the purse to keep her from
When he brought the stolen
purse in he found his mother dy
ing. But the following corner
sation took place between them:
"Who gave it to you?" she
managed to ask, and then tear
ful, guilty remorse began to gnaw
at little "Jinks'" heart.
"A woman down there," he
got out. "But could you not get
up and walk about, mother?
You would look better then, ami
perhaps you cmild eat."
"No, Willie dear. I'm afraid
Little "Jinks" seemed to see
the words tkat were corning, and
a great wail burst from him as he
placed his little hand on her
"01imother, don't say that, or
111 die!" he wildly cried. "I'll
run for a doc'or, oh, how fast I 11
go! and you'll be well to morrow,
But she only strained him clos
er to her breast.
"Pray after me, Willie," she
faintly whispered; and theu, chok
ing with grief, and burning with a
sense ef guilt, he repeated after
her a little prayer, that God
would look after a poor little boy
who would soon have no mother,
and raise him up a great many
kind friends to look after him and
be the same as a mother to him,
and mtke hiia grow up to be
ereat and cood man.
After 6aying the prayer,
thy Country's, thy God's, and
little "Jinks" had hut one
thought how he could let his
mother die without confessing
his crime. Every moment it
was at the tip of hh tongue,
but then he thought the awful
newn would strike her dead in
his aims. lie let her sleep on
w hile he watched her breathing.
Toward morning she stirred
slightly, and opened her eyes.
"Kiss me, "Willie," she said.
It was only a w hisper, but he
heard every word.
".Now, put your- arms round
me tighter, tighter."
These were her last words.
Her breathing got fainter and
slower; and then, as her eye
lids drooped, "Willie's screams
brought in some of the neigh
bors. They took him gently from
the room, and were kind and
good to him, poor though they
were; but when they told him
that his mother was away some
where, and would not be back
for awhile, lie had such a wild
burst of grief that theyT were a
fraid of his slender life. But
he was calm at last, and then he
insisted on going out, he wouldn't
tell where, but he would go.
He slipped out when they
were in the next room, and
found his way to Scotland yard;
and this ended his story.
I didn't take him away and
lock him in a cell. No, I took
him home to my wife, and then
paid a visit to tho banker. Af
ter giving him his purse and its
contents entire and unbroken, I
told him little "Jinks' " story
pretty much as I have now put
it before the reader. As I have
already indicated, he was of that
derided class called soft-hearted ;
and long before 1 had finished,
he was blowing his nose,wiping
his eyes; and, finally', crying
and sobbing like a child. But
when I stopped him by asking
if he wished to press the case,
he stf.rtcd right back in his
chair, and looked perfectly
"Mr. Ileynold.J'' he ciied,
"do you take me for a monster?''
"Ko," he added, after a minute.
"I will not press it, nor will I
let you press it. Do you hear
me? I am determined. I will
sco "Willie you'll let me sec
hiin, won't you? I think I shall
like "Willie, and perhaps "Willie
might like me. This is a big
house, too; he wouldn't fill up
much space in it; and, besides,
he'd bo somebody to talk to.
Yes, I'll sec AVillic. But Mr.
Key nobis, here stop! if you
say another word about 'press
ing the case,' as you call it, I'll
kill you on the spot!"
Sharpe vs. Dawes.
From the Tull Mall Gazette.
The question whether one man
can 'meet," would to any one but
u lawyer appear barely intelligi
ble. Such a question has, howev
er, lately occupied the attention of
the Court of Appeal in the case of
Sharpe vs. Diwes. The action
was brought for the amount ef a
call upon certain shares, which
call was made at a meeting duly
convened of a company transact
ing business in the Stannaries.
Proper notice had been given, un
der tho rules, of a meeting to be
held cn the SOih of December,
1874. On that day at the time
appointed, only one shareholder
attended. Unmoved by the awful
solitude of the board room," he took
the chair and passed several res
olutions, including a call cf 4s. Gd.
per share upon the capital of the
torn; any, and ending with a "vote
of thanks to the chairman," The
action was tried by Baron Bram
wtll l ist May, and the question
ot the validity of the call was re
served lor the Queen's Bench Di
vision, whore Mr. Justice Black
b irn and Mr. Justice Quain held
that, as the meeting was properly
convened and as there was no pro
vision for a "quorum" in the rules,
a resolution passed by a single
shareholder was valid. This de
cision, however, has been reversed
j by the Appeal Court.

The Herald states with cor

the event of an irreconcilable dis
agreement about the returns from
the di.pu?ed States, he thould be
declared President by the Ilousre
of Representatives uithout the as
Eent of the Senate:
"No President can exercise the
functions of hia office wilLout the
consent of the Senate. The first
act of a new President is to send
to the Senate the names of the
men whom he proposes as mem
bers of his Cabinet. None of
them can be appointed without 'the
advice and consent of the Senate;'
and a Senate whose majority be
lieves that a man who sends nom
inations has never been elected
President, and has no legal title
to the office, will not even consid
er his uppointments, much leFs

more absolutely certain than thatjislature from Union, and I wmt
