It was an Irish brogue, and Mr. Bawn
lways declared that he never would
employ an incompetent hand. Yet the
tone attracted him. He turned briskly,
and with his pen -behind his ear, ad
dressed the man, who was only one of
the fifty who had answered his adver

'What makes you expect to learn

'I'll hire you for the week,' he said,
'and now as if is uoop, go down into the
kitchen and (ell the girl to get you

And with an Irish blessing, the new
hand obeyed, while Mr. Bawn, untying
his apron, went up stairs to his meal :
Suspicious as he was of the new
hand's integrity and ability, La was
agreeably d.iappointed.' Cortner work
ed hard and" actually learned fast. At
the end of the week he was engaged
pernjanently, and -soon was, the best
workman in the shop. . J ".
He was a great talker, but not fond
drink or wasting money. As his
wages grew he hoarded every penny,
and wore the same shabby clothes in
which he had made his first appear
ance. 'Beer costs money,' ' he said one
day, 'and ivery cint I spind puts off the
bringing of Nora and Jamesy over; and
as for clothes, them I have must do me
betther no coat to me back than no
wife and boy by me fireside; and any
how, it's slow work saving.' ; -.
1 It was slow work, but be kept on all
the same. Other men, thoughtless and
full of fun, tried to make him drink
made a jest of his saving habits, coaxed
him to. accompany them to places of
amusement or to share in their Sunday
frolics. All in vain. Connor liked
beer, liked fun, 'liked companionship;
but he would not delay that long look-ed-for
bringing of Nora over, and was
not 'mane enough' to accept favors of
others. He kept his way a martyr
to his one great wish living on little,
working at night on any extra job he
could earn a few shillings by ; running
errands in his noontide hours of rest,
and talking to any one who would lis
ten of his one great hope, and of Nora
and little Jamesy.
" At first the men, who prided them
selves on being all Americans, and on
turning out the best w?ork in. the city,
made a sort of butt of Conner, whose
'wild Irish' ways and verdancy were in
deed often laughable. But he. won
their hearts at last, and when one day
mounting a work-bencb, he shook bis
little bundle, wrapped in a red kerchief,
before their eyes, and shouted, 'Look,
boys, I've got the whole at last! I'm
goin' to bring Nora and Janiexy over at
last! Whroo! I've got it:' all telt a
sympathy in his joy, and each grasped
his great hand in cordial congratula
tions, and one proposed to treat all
round, and drink 'a good voyage to
Nora. 1 r
Tbey parted in a 'merry mood, most
of the men going to comfortable homes.
But poor Connor's resting dace was a
poor lodging house, where he shared a
crazy garret with four other men, and
in the joy of his heart the poor fellow
exhibited his handkerchief, with his
hard earned savings tied up in a hard
wad in the middle, before he put it un
der his pillow and fell asleep. When
he awakened in the morning, he found
his treasure gone. Some villian, more
contemptible than most bad men are,
had robbed him.
At first Connor could uot even be
lieve it losl. He searched every corner
of the room, shook his ijuilt and blank
ets, and begged those about him to
'quit joking and give it back.
But at last he realized the truth.
'Is anv man that bad that it's thaved
from me?' he asked, in a breathless
way. 'Boys, is any man that bad ?' .
And some one answered
'No doubt of it, Connor. It's sthole.'
Then Connor put his head down on
his hands and lifted up his voice and
wept. It was one of those sights which
men never forget It seemed more
than he could bears, to have Nora and
his child 'put,' as he expressed it,
'months away from him again.'
But when he went to work that day
it seemed to all who saw him that be
had picked up a new determination.
His face seemed to say, 'I'll have Nora
with me yet,' At noon he scratched
out a letter, blotted and very strangely
scrawled, telling Nora what had happen
ed ; and those who observed him, no
ticed that he had no meat with his din-
Indeed, from that moment he
lived on bread, potatoes and cold water,
and worked as few men ever-worked
before. It grew to be the talk of the
shop, and now that sympathy was ex
cited, every one wanted to help (Jon nor.
Jobs were thrown in his way, kind
words and friendly wishes helped him
mightly ; but no power could make him
share the food or drink of anv other
That seemed a sort of charity to him.
Still he was helped along. A present
from Mr. Bawn, at pay day,' set Nora,
he said, 'a week nearer,' and this and
that and the other added to the little
hoard. It grew faster than the first,
and Connor's burden was not so heavy.
At last, before he hoped it, he was once
more able to say, 'I'm going to bring
them over,' and to show his handker
chief, in which, us before, he tied up
his earnings; this time, however, onlv
to his friends. Cautious, among strang
ers, he hid the treasure, and kept his
vest buttoned over it night and day un
til the tickets were bought and sent
Then every man, woman and pliild,
capable of hearing or understanding,
knew that Nora and her baby weie
There was John Jones, who bad more
of the brute in his composition than
usually falls to the lot of man even he,
who had coolly hurled his hammer at
an offender's head, missing him by a
hairs breadth, would spend ten min
utes in the noon hour in readinjr the
Irish news to Connor. There was Tom
Barker, the meanest man among the
number, who bad never been known
to give anything to anv one before, ab
solutely bartered an old jacket for a
i. If 1 I 1
air- 01 gin vases . wdicii a peiuer
brought in his basket to the shop, and
presented them to Connor for his Nora's
mantel-piece. And here was idle Dick,
the - apprentice, who actually worked
two hours on Connor's work, when ill
ness kept the Irishman at home one
day. Connor felt this kindness, arid re
turned it whenever it was in his power,
and the, days, llew by and brought at
last a letter from his wife.
She would start as ' he desired, and
she was well and so was the boy, aqd

good old lad v, who had given her an
education, the items of which'. Connor
told upon' his ringers. 'The radin',
that's one, ami tbe writin', that's two,
and moreover, she knows all that a wo
man can. Then he looked up at hi fel
low workmen with tears iu bis eves,
'Do ve wondher the time seems long
between me an' her. liyvsSi
11 was iora at me uawn qi ciay
Nora at noon Jiora at. night until
the news cime that the Stormy l'etrel
had come to port, and Connor, breath
less and pale with excitement, flung his
ap in the air and shouted.
It happened on a holiday afternoMi
and half a doerj meu wore ready io go
with Connolr to tbe steamer and give
his wife a greeting. Her little home
was. ready;, Mr. Bavyn's own servant
lad put it in order, and Connor took
one peep at it before he started.
She hadn't the likn of that In the
ould coiinthry,' he said. 'But she'll
know how to kapethim tidy.'
Then he led the way towards rtio
dock where the steamer- lay, at a pace
which made it hard for the rest to fol
low him. The spot was reached at last;
a Crowd of vehicles blockaded the street;
a troop of emigrauts were stepping into
cabs, and drivers, porters, and all man
ner of employees were yelling and
shouting in the usual manner Nora
I would wait on board for her husbarid-
ne Knew inau
The little group made their way into
the vessel at last, and there amid those
who sat watching for coming friends,
Connor searched for two so dear to him ;
patiently at first, eagerly but patiently;
but by-and-by growing anxious and ex
cited. ' ' '
" 'She would niver go alone,'' he said.
She'd be lost entirely; I bade her wait,
but I don't see her boys, I think she's
not in it "" " - -''
: 'Why dbiTfyc-ji seej !'!"0ie capTpnT
asked one, and' Connor jumped at the
suggestion. In a few minutes he stood

.'His mother watched him night and

we could, but al last he died ; only one

In an hour he was at home in the little

A Good Sui;(;kstiox. At the recent
railroad slaughter in Oho fives were
needlessly lost because there was no

For ferment bread, here is .the best
recipe tor yeast we have ever tried:
Peel and cook, say, ten potatoes;-rub
them through a coarse sieve or coland
er j add a coffee-cup of sugar;, turn On
the water they . were cooked, in. and as
much more as will make a thin batter;
when lukewarm stir in a pint of 'yeast,
and set in a warm place to rise ; when
well fermented, put into a stone jug;
tie the cork down and keep in u cool
place, A teacup of this yeast :' is
euough for two large loaves. ,: ' . '
In canning peaches, much time and
labor may be saved by renuying the
outside peel with ley, instead of a knife.
Have a pot of moderately strong ley
heated to boiling; drop the peaches,
in; let them remain a, minute or two;
dip them out, and drop them immedi
ately into a tub of clean cold water,
when the skins may be speedily remov
ed by rubbing with the hands.
