flakes! , God help the poor )
I turned from tho, window,
and ; sat down to the glowing
comfort of a cheerlul wood-fire
and a new book,1 prepared Uo
enjoy the brief hours of the win
ter afternoon to the utmost. Bu
somehow the enjoyment failed
to come. Up from the' printed
pages a group of faces looker.'
wistfully into mine ; hungry
faces with lean cheeks and hoi
low eyes ; weary 'faces, bearing
the traces of hard and ill-re
quited labor; sorrowful faces
out which all smiles had faded
despairing faces which had for
gotten or were afraid to look up
to the heavens ; there, and also.
most touching of all, patient
faces of the poor members of
"the household of faith," crowd
ed the pages of my book, and
seemed tnrowing oack to me
from their quivering lips, my
prayer God pity the poor ! '
111 at ease I certainly was,
and yet " not quite " ready" to
hearken ' to. the inward v
which J bade me go forth and
make good my petition, by do
ing what I could for their re
lief. It was so rough without
so bitterly cold, so .
"If ye plaze, ma'am, did ye
forget the broth for the ould la
dies ?" Bridget's head, ducked
inside the door, waited an an

"I have not forgotten it, but
is so stormy I dislike to go
out this afternoon." -
"Indade, thin, tho poor ould

it's ineself .'11 go, ma'am, though
rve not folded the clothes,
nor" " '-:
"Please put the broth into a
tin pajl,;Bri.dget," I interrupted,
thoroughly ashamed of myself,
"and I will take it at once."
Iifteen minutes later I, set
forth, and soon found myself at
Aunt ! Patty's doorJ VThe ". old
lady sat crooning' over her fire,
with her knitting work in her
hands. "Good afternoon Aunt

"What a comfortable fire you

"I hope he will, but I don't
feel as sure as you seem to
ma'am."
"I was glad to see you at
church last Sunday. Mr.
Smith was very kind to take
you."
"It ain't very often he puts
himself out. 1 don't suppose
he'd have thought of calling
for me, if he hadn't happened
to be a-going right by the
doer. He couldn't very well
help it."

"Liunt you like our new
minister ? What a good, prac

seemed as though every one
must be benefitted by it."

the old lady sat for me a chair,
her face beaming with pleasure.
"I don't believe there's another

What a Detroit Man Found among
His Old Papers.
t--I
Two or three months ago, J.
Howell,' furniture dealer Jon
Michigan avenue,' Detroit,1 set
aibout overhauling a desk filled
with old papers papers which
had been accumulating on his
hands for several years, until
he could scarcely1 say where or
how ho got the most of them.
After throwing away a bushel
or more of the documents, he
came upon a paper, sealed and
tied with red tape. 1
i He could not remember hav
ing seen it before and ' was
amazed when he broke the seal
and read : "Last will and testa
ment of Israel Whitworth."
Getting further down,' he found
that the paper was nine' years
old, and that the will gave to
"Margaret Davis, my sister, or
her children, the Gordon farm,
i . .. .
situate two and one-half miles
from' St.1 Joseph V, Missouri, to
gether with all live stock , aud
farming utensils, further the
sum of $5,000 in bank in St
Joseph (unless I shall ' have
withdrawn it) my gold watch,
my household furniture, ,' and
the one-half, what my house in
St. Joseph may bring at private
sale."-"''' :-''.:-' -' . "
I So read the will as far as the
sister, and her kin were con
cerned, and : then Whitworth
made bequests to several other
relatives.- The will was dated
"Detroit, August 10,"l863.w , It
occurred to Mr.Rowell tjiatthe
will might be of some account
to some one, and he wrote to
Mrs. Davis,; directing the letter
to St Joseph, Missouri. In
about two weeks ho received, a
reply from her, dated at Weston
same State, his letter having
been forwarded to that point-
She stated that her brother had
been dead nearly eight years,
and that she had never known
of a will. ' .
The property had been divi
ded among four near relatives
of the deceased, or should have
been, but three of . them had
cheated her out of what fell to
her in dividing up. . She fur
ther stated that her brother had
a cousin in Detroit years ago,
and that he was in that city on
visit about the date of the
will. The 1 cousin's name was
signed as one of the witnesses,
and a Mr. Johnson, now in Cin
cinnati, was the other witness.
Jlowell sent on the will, and
Friday last he received a grate
ful letter irom the woman who
said that the will had been
admitted to " probate there, the
i " ...
witnesses called on. and that
she had been put in possession
of nearly $20,000 through ' his
finding the will. "
She cautioned him to look
out for an express package, ad
will ; probably send something
handsome. The puzzling thing
of the whole is' that llowell
can't tell where or when he got
the will, , nor imagine how the
deceased came to leave it where
it would fall ' Into- the ha'ndV of I
. ' ' stranger.; Mr J ' Whit worth
might have, lost it. ' or left it
where he could not find it, and
inally - concluded that ! it was
destroyed, and for reasons sat-
3t0ry to ' himself did 1 not
make) another A will.', '. The,' case
is a curious one, but Howell has
the letters tr prove that it is a
trubone1''''" MiMW f--.in'r.
