Tlii: LAST pi;.v.
BY T. S. AHTlIUn.
' Tliomns Claire, son of St. Crispin, was
a clever sort of a man though not very
well oil 111 the world, tie Has muiistri
oils, but, as his abilities were small, his
reward was proportioned thereto. His
skill went little beyond half-soles, heel
taps and p.nlclies. Those who, willing to
encourage Thomas, ventured to order from
him a new pair of boots or shoes, tiev er
repealed Ihe order. That w ouhl hove
been carrying their good wishes for his
prosperity rather too liir.
As' intimated, the income of Thomas
Claire was not large. Industrious though
he whs, the amount earned proved so
?rnall that his frugal wife always found it
irnnflici.Mit for an adequate simply of the
wants 01 the inmily, which consisted ol
her husband, herself, nnd three ehfldreif.
It cannot be denied, however, that if Tho
mas had cared less about his pipe and mug
of ale, the supply of bread would have
been more liberal. But he had to work
hard, and must have some little self-indulgence.
At least so he very conclu
sively argued. This elf-indulgence cost
IV(im two to three shillings every week, a
sum that would have purchased many
comforts for the needy familiar.
The oldest of Claire's" children, a girl
ten years of nge, had been sickly from her
birth. She was a gentle loving child,
the favorite of all in the house, and more
especially of her father. Little LizEy
would cmne up into the garret where
Claire w nrked, and sit witli him sometimes
for hours, talking in a strain that caused
him to wonder; and sometime when she
did not (eel as well as usual, lying upon
the floor and fixing upon him her large
bright eyes for almost long n period.
Lizzy was neer so contented as when
she was with her father j nnd he never
worked so cheerfully as when she Was
Gradually, as month after month went
by, Lizzy wasted away with some disease,
for which the doctor could find no remedy.
Her checks became paler mid 'paler, her
eyes larger and brighter, and such a weak
ness fell upon her slender Innlw that they
could with difficulty sustain hor weight.
She was no longer able to clamber up the
strep stairs into the garret, or loft, where
father worked; yet she was there as of
ten as before. Claire had made for her a
little bed, raised a short space from the
lloor, nnd here she lay, talking to him or
looking at him, as of old. lie rarely
went up or down the garret stair with
out having Lizzy in his arms. Usually
her head was lying upon his shoulder.
A.'tu" thus the lime went on, Claire, for
all the love he felt fur his sick child Vr
all the regard he entertained for his fami
ly indulging his beer and tobacco as u
sual, and thus consuming, weekly, a por
tion nf their little income that would have
brought to hi children many a comfort.
No one but himself had any luxuries.
Not even for Lizzy's weak appetite were
dainties procured. It was as much as the
mother could do, out of the weekly pit
tance she received, to get enough coarse
food lor the table, and cover tho naked
ness of her family.
To supply Ihe pipe and mug of Claire,
from two to three shillings a week were
required, This sum he usually retained
out of his earning, and gave the balance,
whether large or small, to his frugal wife.
No ruat'.er w hat his incom J happened to
be, the .amount necessary to obtain these
articles was rigidly deducted, and as cer
tainly expended. , Without his beer,
Claire really imagined that he would not
have strenlh sufficient to go through with
the weekly toil ho.w his wife managed to
get along without even her regular cup of
good tea, it had never occurred to nun to
ask and not to have had a pipe to smoke
in the evening, or after each meal, would
have been a deprivation beyond hit abili
ty to endure. So, the two or three shil
lings went regularly in the old way.-
When the sixpences and pennies congre
gated in goodly numbers in the shoema
ker's pocket, his visits to the ale house
were often repeated, and his extra pipe
smoked more frequently. But, at hit al
lowance for the week diminished, and it
required tome searching in the capacious
pockets, where they hid themselves away,
to find the straggling corns, Claire found
it necessary to put tome check upon' hit
appetites. And so it went on, week af
ter week and month after month. The
beer was dank, tnd the pipe smoked as
usual, while the whole family bent under
the weight of poverty that waa laid upon
f hem. ' '
, Weaker and weaker grew little Lizzy.
From the coarso fond (hat was daily set
before her, her weak stomach turned, and
she hardly took sufficient nourishment' to
keep life in' her tllenuated frame.
"Poor child," said the mother one mr
ning, "she cannot live if she doesn't eat.
But coarse bread and potatoes and butter
milk go against her weak stomach. Ah,
Inel If -we only had a litTle that the rich
"There is a curse in poverty I" replied
Claire, with a bitterness that was unusual
to him, as he turned his , eyes upon his
child, who had pushed (he food away Ihn
had been placed before her, and was look
ing at it w ilh an expression of disappoint
ment on her face. "A curse in poverty !"
he repeated. "Why should my child die
for want of nourishing food, while the
children of the rich have every luxury ?"
In the mind of Claire, there was usual
ly a dead calm. He plodded on, from day
to day, eating his potatoes arid buttermilk,
or whatever came before him, and work
ing steadily through the hour allotted lo
labor, his hopes or fears in life rarely ex
citing him to an expression of discontent.
But he loved Lizzy better than any earth
ly thing, and to see her turn with loatii-

Claire pushed himself back fsom the
laoie, anil without saying a word more,
went up to hi shop in the garret, and sat
dow n to work. There was a troubled
and despondent feeling about his heart.
He did not light hi pipe as usual, fur bd

ihe evening before. But he had a penny
left, and with that, as soon as he had fin

At last the boolj were dorfe, and with
his thought now more occupied with Ihe
supply of tobacco he was to obtain, than
with any thing else, Claire started to take
them home. As he walked alonir, he
passed a fruit shop, and the thought of
Lizzy came into his mine1.
"If we could afford her tome of these
nice things!" he said to himself. "They
would be food and medicine both, to the

Then came a long, hesitating pause.
there was bclore the mind of Claire the 1
image ol the taint and leeble child with
the refreshing orange to her lips ; and
there wat tlso the image of himself en
cheered for two long days by hit pipe.
But could he for a moment hesitate, if he
really loved that tick child P i at lied.
Yet, lie could: hesitate, tnd yet love (be

The penny was between his fingers',
and he took a single step towards the alo
house door ; but so vividly came back the
image of little Lizzy, that he stopped sud
denly. The conflict, even though the
spending of a single penny was concern
ed, now became severe ; love for the child
pleaded earnestly, and as earnestly plead

Uhe no denial.
It was his last penny that was between
the cobler's lingers. Had there been two
pennies in his pocket, all difficulty would
have immediately vanished. Having tho't
of the orange, he would have bought it
with one of them, and supplied his pipe
with the other. But, as all'airs now stood,
he must utterly deny himself, or else deny
For minutes the question was debated.
"I will see as I come back," said Claire
at last, starting on his errand, nnd thus,
tor the time, making a sort of compromise.
As he walked alonnr, the argument still
w ent on in his mind. The more his tho'ls
child?" uttered half aloud, marked at last
the final condition of his mind; and as
this wa si.ul, the pipe, which was still
held in hi lingers, was thrust deteriniued
edly into bis pocket.
As he returned home, Claire bought the
orange, and in the act experienced a new
pleasure. By a kind of necessity he had
worked on, daily, lor his family, OporV
which was expended nearly all his earn
ings : nnd the whole mailer came so much

W'hile the orange was yet at the lips of

for tome purpose.

Not once through that whole dxy did!
Tbomat Claire feel the want ot his pipe;!
for the thought of the orange kept lu
mind in to pleased a state, that a mere
sensual desire like that for a wlnlf of to

Thfulsing of the orange, of oourte, nru't
other thoughts ; and before the day clos
ed, Claire had mad a' a calculation of how
muoh hit beer and .tobacco money would
amount to in a year. The sum astonish
ed him. He paid rent for '.he little house
in which he lived, two pound sterling 1
year, which he always thought a large
sum. But hi beer nnd tobacco cost near
ly seven pounds 1 He went over and o
ver the calculation a dozen timet, in doubt
of thn first estimate, but it always came
out the same. Then he began to go over
in his mind tho many comforts seven
pounds per annum w ould give to his fam
ily ; and particularly how many little lux
uries might be procured for Lizzy, whose
delicate appetite turned from (he coarse,
food that w as daily set before her.
But to give up the beer and tobacco in
toto w hen il was thought of seriously, ap
peared impossible. How could he live
On that evening, the customer whose
boots he had taken home in the morning,
culled in unexpectedly, and paid for them.
Claire retained a sixpence of the money,
and gave the bahmce to his wife. Wilh
this sixpence in his pocket he went out
for a mug of beer, nnd tome tobacco to re
plenish his pipe. He staid some time
longer than he usually took for such an
When he came hack he had three or
anges in his pocket ; nnd in his hands
were two fresh bunns, and a cup of sweet
new milk. lS'o beer had passed his lips,
and his pipe was yet unsupplied. He
had passed through another couilict with
his old appetites; but love for his Chilif
came off, as before, the conqueror.
Lizzy, who drooped about all dny, ly
ing down most of her time, never went lo
sleep early. She was awake, as usual,
when her lather returned. With scarce
ly less eagerness than she had eaten the
orange in the morning, did she now drink
the nourishing milk and eat ihe sweet
buns, while her father sat looking at her,
his heart throbbing with inexpressible de
light. From that day, the pipe nnd the mug
w ere throw n aside. Il cost a prolonged
struggle. But the man conquered ihe
mere animal nnd Claire found himself
no worse off in health. He could work
as many hours, nnd with as little fatigue ;
in fact, he found himself brighter in the
morning, and ready lo go to his work ear
lier, by which he was able lo increase at
least 11 shilling or two, his w eekly inccine.
Added to the comfort of his family, eight
or ten pounds produced a great change.
But the greatest change was in little Liz
zy. For a few week, very penny sa
ved from the beer nnd lobacc, the father
regularly expended for his sick child;
and it soon became upparent, that it was
nourishing food, more than medicine, that
Lizzy needed. She revived wonderfully J
and nn long lime passed before she could
sit up for hours. Her little tongue, too,
became free once more, and many an hour
of labor did her voice again beguile.
And the blessing of better food came also
in lime lo (he other children, and lo all.
"So much to come from the right spend
ing of a single penny," Claire said to him
self, as he sat nnd reflected one day.
"Who could have believed it?"
And as it was with the poor cobler, to
will it be wilh all of us. There are little
matters of self-denial, which, if we had
but the true benevolence, justice, tnd re
solution lo practice, would be the begin
ning nf more important acta of a like na
ture, (hat when performed, would bless,
not only our families, but others ; and be
relnrned upon us in a reward of delight
incomparably beyond any thing that self
ish and sensual indulgence have it in
their tiower In !' 1
