Of course, after this, Vect and I became
fast friends, and he told tne all his little
early history. Would you like to hear it
Well, then, his mother died when he was
a five-year-old, and his father died when
the boy was in his fourteenth year, leaving
after a careful administration and settling
debts, fourteen hundred dollars in money.
As there was no will, an uncle assumed the
gaurdhiushipof both the person and estate.
About nine months thereafter the youth
had the boldness to call the uncle to ac
count. Now that was not a common thing
for a boy to do. But Veet I lazier was not a
What might be regarded ns stiil more ex
traordinary move for one so young, when
his uncle told him that it would not do lor
boys to be too inquisitive, he (Veet) took
his foot in his hand, as the saying goes, and
inarched oil to town to consult a lawyer.
Think of it! a boy of fourteen consult
ing a lawyer about his affairs!
lie walked into Judge (tore's office with
the air of a man of business. The Judge
was as cross as an old woman on wash-day;
but that didn't set the boy back in the
"What do you want with me? Come, be
iuick for I'm in hurry."'
Now most heroes of this age would have
"fired up impetuously" or "burst into tears"
at this abrupt treatment; but Vect did
neither, lie just took the Judge's temper as
a part ami parcel of the business. In an
swering, he measured olF his words as
though he wished each one to weigh a
"My name is Helvetius V. Mazier. I'm
the only son of the late Archibald Mazier,
You sec the lad had been reading the ad
mi nintrat ion papers.
At this announcement the Judge's innn
ncr softened. He said,
"The devil you are! How do you do,
"My father left me some money."
"I know it," said the Judge, "and your
uncle was appointed your guardian.
"I don't think he knows how to handle
other people's money. He never tool; very
good care of his own."
"(Joftd:'' exclaimed tho lawyer. "What

"To-dav. if vnu have a mind to. Come i
alone with me!" And so the judge took
the boy to the courthouse, and tlu;
of it was, he chose Judge (.tore for Ins
guardian. The result proved that ho was
not too soon in making the change. All
the new guardian got out of the old one
was about nine hundred dollars.
Some guardians would have undertaken
to support and educate the boy on this sum
until he reached his majority. Long be
fore lie readied that ago he would have
turned out a lmlf cdueated beggar. But
the old lawyer had different views for his
ward. He advised him to first learn to
tarn his living. That's the way he came to
enter the book-bindery of Stamp, Marble
Hides ic Co.
How did he get on? you ask.
Well, ho got on first-rate. He learned
everything thoroughly as ho went along.
Ho fell a foul of a set of double-enli v ac
count bowks going through the bindery,
saved up waste sheets, and at night, when
other boys were engaged in some mischief
or other, ho was puzzling over the mysteries
Ho inspected every book that came in his
way, and if it contained anything to excite
his curiosity, I'll be hanged if he wouldn't
follow it through all tho stages of binding,
and catching it up at odd times, Sunday,
evenings und at noon, and would have it
pretty thoroughly read by tho time it wtis
ready to deliver to a customer. There was
a set of Dickens' novel left there to b ro
iKitind, and after they wero finished the
Tolumcs remained on the shelves among the
finished books for some time, and wero not
called for. Before they wero wants 1 by

had not neglected his work. He could for
ward a full-bound blank-book as well as
the best of them. At seventeen, this boy
ran a ruling-machine, second only to tho

the firm, with the consent oi nis guanunn,

and I were standing by the second-story
window, and I was putting on my coat, we
saw a young lady passing on the sidewalk
below, with a little wacK-ami-ian uog trot-
in" at her heels. When she had reached a
point directly under our window, a null
terrier that came from the opposite direc
tion made a plunge for the little whelp, and
it spratvg to its mistress for help. She
gathered it up in her arms, and the luill-
terner. not to be deprived ot us prey,
reared up with its fore-feet on the young
lady. Of course she screamed and frantic
ally clutched her pet. while Veet swung
himself out ot the window and dropped
plump on the hind quarters of the savage
ijnito. His next move was to size it by the
hind leo-s and brain it on the curbstone. As
he lossed its lifeless carcass in the gutter
lie discovered that he had dropped his hat;
and I'll be switched if he didn't stoop
down, pick it up and put it on before ho
looked at the lady, and then he raised it
gracefully, smiled sweetly, and hoped his
sudden appearance hadn't frightened her.
No, indeed !" said she in a gasping sort
of a way. "You seemed to drop from the
clouds, just in time to save me and my pet
from that horrid dog!"
As she still looked somewhat frightened,
Helvetius asked her to walk into the store
a moment to get out of the crowd that be
gan to gather, and he went limping in after
tor his ankle had received a wrench and

knowledgment snd expressed her anxiety

But it was enough to lay him up for a
few davs, and I can tell you that the young
lady daughter of a railroad president, by
the way came to visit and condole with
him at his boarding-house. It was quite
an episode in his life, and ended by the old
man offering Veet a position on the road,
which he very promptly, but respectfully,
"Fall in love with, and marry the daugh
ter?'' Why, man, what arc you talking
about? Mcmember that the youth was only
a little past eighteen years of age. To be
sure, he looked manly enough, barring the
beard, to be in his twenty-fourth year. But
he was too sensible a lad to think about
mai tying. However, if you care to hear
nie through, we haven't come to that part
of his biography.
Wei!, then, as foreman, my hero had bet
ter opportunities than ever before, both to
save money, and to spend his spare cash to
advantage. He went to dancing school one
winter; commenced reading and studying
under an instructor, and by the time he was
twenty, had his head pretty well stocked
with general information. As to his busi
ness, he knew all its ins and outs. There
was no material used in any department ol
book-making of the manufacture of which
he had not as good a theoretical knowledge
as could be gathered from books. He was
a man of muscles as wel! ns brains 1 call
him man, now, because he had the only
j requisite he had previously lacked, a mus
tache nnd goatee.
As I said before, his manners were those
of a well-bred gentleman. His politeness
j was not all reserved for fine ladies; daugh
j tersof railroad presidents and the like; but
I was extended to every book-folder and
stitcher in the bindery. If anv one of them
felt herself to be anything less tht;n a lady,

and nermitted not tho slightest breach of
decorum on the part of the hands in the
bindery, or any one whoso business or cu
riosity brought hiin there. Nor would he
knowingly employ a girl of doubtful repu
tation. Marblesidis, who you will remember, I
said was a little "fast," brought him a rath
er volup uoiis looking specimen of feminin
ity at one time.
Vect looked a little blue about it, but be.
m tr short of folders, and partly out of def
erence to the proprietor, set her at work.
She turned out to be lazy, and impudent,
and finally manifested such easy familiar
ity with the men as to scandalize the other
young women with whom she was associat
ed, and the foreman discharged her. She
came, however, on Monday morning and
told her tale to Marblesides, ami he
whistled up through the Bpeaking tube and
called for "Mr. Hazier."
"Well, sir!" was the response from that

uisenurgi'M ner. came irom ueiow in ine
veil recognized tones of Marblcnides' voice,
somewhat sharpened by anger.
"Yes, sir, 1 told the young lady that I
should have no further use for her," answer
ed Veet, without a quaver of voice. Then
he turned his ear to the mouth piece, and
received this answer, which was shouted so
that it might have been heard hall a dozen
"Well, sir, I have use for her there, and I
want her employed. And I'll have you to
know that I will not be dictated to by a
da". At this point Veet closed tho valve
and left tho indignant breath ol tho pro
prietor to come tooting spasmodically
through the whistle. In tho moantimo ho
turned coolly and politely to ono of tho
stitchers that sut ucur at band and said
"Misi Martlctt, will you please to move
a little farther towards the other end of the
And then when a cessation of tha tooting
indicated that Marblesides had about
finished his profanity, the young man put
his mouth to the tube and called:
"Mr. Marblesides, I took the liberty of
cuttinsr oil your remarks when they begun
to grow indecent, as you wero speaking
within hearing ot a lady. ou neeiln t
take the trouble to answer, as I am coining
With that ho left the speaking tube,
went and washed his hands, and put on his
coat. As ho was about to descend the stair
wav. Miss Mertlctt came ui to him with
an anxious face, und said,
"Mr. Mazier, rather than have you get
into trouble about Miss La Blanc. 1 will go,
and let her have my place, I know that will
satisfy Mr. Marblesides.
"Oh. never mind.' 'said he. "you needn't
feel alarmed about my getting into trouble.
There's nothing serious Mr. Marblesides
can do to me."
So sayiug, he politely and good humord'y
thanked the young lady for her inteiest nnd
walked down stairs.
Now, this Miss Martlctt was a lady in
every sense of the word. Her father died
in tho midst of a crazy speculation by
which his entire littlo competence was
swept away. He lett a widow and three
children, o"f whom this was the eldest, and
she adopted this means to assist in support
ing herself and family. She might have
t-iuiiht music, if she had been able to find
any pupils, but there were about two anx
ious applicants for every musically inclined
young miss m town. hen she came as
an applicaut for a position at tho bindery,
about six months before Miss LaBlanc was
introduced there, she brought no recommen
dation beyond her good looks and lady-like
leportmcnt. The former attracted the eve
of Marblesides, but the latter secured tiie
favorable consideration of the foreman. '
You remember what. I said about Mar
blesides being a little fat and loose iu his
habits? Well, you see he bore such a char
acter that any attention from him to a poor
girl in his employ was an insult, because it
would not be looked upon as respectful. I lis
frisking around among them during work
ing hours had on a former occasion come
near bringing alxnit a rupture between him
and his foreman. But when he went so tar
as to send off Miss Martlett's little brother,
who came to see her home in the evening.
and then tendered his own services in that
behalf, there was a row "not loud but
'Refuse him ; Of course she did ! by.
man, she knew that for a girl in her position
to be seen walking the streets of that town
with old Marblesides, was enough to cast a
very serious cloud upon her reputation.
But the best ot it was, that the loreman
came along as the two stood at tho front
exit, and stepping in between, crooked his
arm and the young lady slipped hers
through it without a word, nnd walked off,
leaving the old man boiling over. He
never forgave either of them.
I don't know what Veet said to her that
evening, but she was back at her work next
morning, and there she remained undis
turbed. She was the best folder and sticher
in the house, though there were others who
had been at work at it for years.
Well, as I were saying, Vect walked down
stairs. It was plain to be seen that the
speaking tube conversation bad created
some commotion in the firm. I lie laces ot
both Stamp and Marblesides were very red.
The first words Vect heard were from the
former, who said,
I have sent for Mr. Flathcr-:. He will
be here presently."
Continued to morrow.
